Friday: Lines From a Book

Hello everyone. As you may know, I am mahmfic and today is my last day of pinch-hitting for the week. You guys have been fantastic!

I hope you have fun with today's theme Lines from a book. All prompts should be quotes from novels. Pick up the closest book to you and flip to a random page, Google your favorite novel and find some quotes from it, go to, search for a book and find a quote that strikes you from the novel. Though not required, it would be nice to include the source of the quote you used in your prompt for others to see.

Have a great weekend!

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...

+ Doctor Who, 12th Doctor/Missy, "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals." (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling)
+ Vikings (TV), Ragnar Lothbrok/Ahtelstan, "Is your modesty worth death?" (Irrevocable by Skye Callahan)
+ Cabin Pressure, Arthur/Any, "I love you above all things, even pie." (Fool by Christopher Moore)

We are now using AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2014 collection. See further notes on this new option here.
