“My orthodontist just asked me on a date, like last week. I was getting fitted for a retainer. I had retainers in my mouth and I was talking ‘like thith’ and spitting all over his hands. He asked me if I wanted to go to a good Spanish restaurant and I thought he just meant, ‘Do you want to know of a good Spanish restaurant that I recently discovered?’ It didn’t even cross my mind that he would be asking me out in that situation, like where I was his patient. So I said ‘yeth’ and then he was like, ‘Great! Do you want to go on Friday?’ And obviously I have to decline, but now, like, do I have to find a new orthodontist?” - Alex on why sometimes the way she looks is a problem

The pen grew longer and heavier in my hand. In half a second, I held a shimmering bronze sword with a double-edged blade, a leather-wrapped grip, and a flat hilt riveted with gold studs. It was the first weapon that actually felt balanced in my hands.
"The sword has a long and tragic history that we need not go into," Chiron told me. "It’s name is Anaklusmos."
