"Even if we do find ourselves on opposing sides one day, I will remain amiable to you. I will never forget the debt I have incurred this day. Even if we should become enemies, I shall respect you and show you favor until the end."

Nemesis

"The most dangerous enemy is not the one who lingers behind you in the shadows, but the one who walks beside you as a friend. They shape the world around you with well-constructed lies, entombing you in the gossamer of their deceit. You’ll never know their true face, for they shed their masks in layers - meticulous and devious, like the skin of an ever-changing snake.

I walked hand in hand with my enemy, allowed their kiss of death to linger on my lips while the world disintegrated around me. I couldn't see through the smoke and mirrors; too consumed with fighting a destiny I didn't want; too afraid to let go of a life I wasn't meant to have. Running only brought me closer to them. Back to where I started. Back to my inevitable fall from grace. One misstep was all it took, and it all came crashing down. And they were right there waiting for it - eager and ready to bury me in the wreckage.

The stage had been set.

The actors were in place.

Everything was a lie, and I never saw it coming."

Excerpt from Bianca Scardoni's Inception

One Chance

...to steal the heart of the audience... you have to have the nerves of a thief. You lack too much the confidence. For me, you are not an opera singer - not yet, and maybe, never. - One Chance

The Originals - Chasing the Devil's tail

We are the demons lurking in shadows. We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. Without you by my side, I don’t think I can survive my own love for my daughter.  I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you.

Marshmallow

I convinced myself winning meant getting out. But in what world do you get to leave the ring and declare victory? This is where I belong. In the fight. It's who I am. I've rolled around in the mud for so long; wash me clean and I don't recognize myself. So how about I just accept the mud and the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it. My name is Veronica and I'm an addict. Hello Veronica. - Veronica Mars (2014)

The Great Series Binge

"Everything is impossible until it is not" - Various

"There is folly in this obsession. Folly and threat. If you want the girl, then take her. But if you cannot have her, then walk away.

Take her or walk away. If only it was that easy. The first would put her in mortal danger. But the second... That would be the end of me". – Dracula, 2014

“Sometimes enough is whatever you have” – Supernatural, S10 E03

Trust. Betrayal. Revenge. But it always starts with trust. - House on the Lake, 2014

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

I truly believe that if you wish for something with all your heart, the entire universe conspires in helping you achieve it. All of you have helped me to want more, to be more. And I thank you for without you I would be nothing. Happy endings. Everything ends on a positive note. If everything does not turn out well in the end, then it is not the end, there is more to the story - Rough translation of the speech from Om Shanti Om

Regardless of who you were or what you may have done in the past - I believe you should be judged not by previous deeds but by the nature and quality of your actions now - K Project

Some of us are kings.. some of us are pawns - K Project
