Beauty and the Werewolf coverThese are the contexts of the quotes tweeted from @sueannbowling last week. All but the last are from Mercedes Lackey’s Beauty and the Werewolf.

“Mules were quiet and sensible.” Bella does not feel up to riding one of Sebastian’s hunters, but a mule sounds like a possibility.

“No amount of crying was going to change what had already happened.” Bella has plenty of reason to cry, but recognizes that it won’t do any good

“A child learns what he lives with.” Bella is beginning to get some feeling for why Eric is the way he is.

“The best magic is unobtrusive. It just makes life go a little smoother.” Sebastian’s philosophy of magic.

“I can’t absolutely promise you nothing would go wrong.” Sebasian, speaking to Bella after he proposes that she help him in his magic-working.

“Anything could happen when you had a world with green talking faces in mirrors in it.” Bella has seen magic before, but her first encounter with a mirror-servant (see Disney’s Snow White) is more than a little unsettling.

“Getting Roi to admit he’s having trouble isn’t easy.” Sue Ann Bowling, Homecoming. Coryn is talking to Nebol, the Headmaster of their school, but Roi is still acting like the slave he was raised as.
