let me tell you something (you already know) - Jedi Buttercup (jedibuttercup) - The Expendables (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
For Barney Ross, the Vilain mission ended more or less how it had begun: with an unexpected visitor in his private hangar.

Somehow, though, he doubted the purpose of the visit was anything like the first one – and not just because the man waiting for him had graying blond hair rather than a stubbled chrome dome. Barney sighed, then acknowledged his guest with a grunt. "Hey, Gunnar."

It Was Enough - Sildominarin - Chalion Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold [Archive of Our Own]
A look at the moments in a web of lives that all connect through one person.
Iselle did not remember rising to her feet, but the fact that she had seen the tiniest tremor in Caz's hand was reason enough for her to stay there. She'd meant to demand respect for her Chancellor, to remind the Roknar of his place as the defeated at the table. Instead, her mind supplied her with the words that Caz had offered as bribes, all those years ago in Valenda.

~You are the son of a whore, and find your pleasures with men of the same. Go back to your masters, cur, and tell them that until Roknar sees reason in the treaty tent that there will be no peace between us!~

There was silence for a long moment, the Roknari shocked, Cazaril obviously resisting the urge to cover his face and lament over his failure as a tutor, and Bergon clearing his throat.

~I think the Royina has made Chalion-Ibra's stance perfectly clear. Leave now, and send word again when you are ready to negotiate.~

Still shocked-or insulted beyond words, it was hard to tell- the Roknari delegation filed out. And Iselle decided to count herself lucky that Cazaril waited until they were alone before he spoke.

Best Supporting Actress - Fahye - Brothers Bloom (2008) [Archive of Our Own]
Whatever role Bang Bang is going to have in the post-Stephen future, it's not going to be a silent one.
"I'll tell you -- a story. A true one. When we were young -- Bloom wasn't even -- he was eleven, I think, yeah, and all we had was the knowledge that we could get things from people. If we tried. And we would sneak into the movie theatres sometimes and see these -- ridiculous stories, really ridiculous, jewel thefts and trains and standoffs with guns in the desert, villains and heroes, and romance like nobody had ever lived. And I decided..." He pauses, gazing at the dregs in his glass. "I decided I was going to give Bloom the best damn adventure story there ever was. His life was going to have everything: money, travel, great escapes, explosions --" he lifts the glass in Bang Bang's direction "-- and a happy ending."

She's already worked some of that out for herself, by now.

But it's nice of him to provide the exposition.

“So do you think it’s gonna work?” She asks again.


“That’s not very encouraging, Nick.”

“Can’t you tell if it’s going to work or not?”

“No. Thinking about it just gives me a headache.”

“Then maybe it’ll work.”

“Again, not encouraging.”

“If you can’t tell, then they can’t tell either.” [3247]

"Why don't we try this one?" he said, handing her the book.

She looked at it. The Adoptive Parent's Guide. "I don't know if that's the same thing."

"It's not a big deal, right? I mean, I don't want to raise pigs. That doesn't mean I can't have bacon."

"I don't think having a child is the same thing as having breakfast."

He looked thoughtful. "Actually, maybe I do want to raise pigs, that sounds awesome. Can I put a pigpen in the back yard? I want to train attack pigs."

"I'm pretty sure city regulations wouldn't allow us to have pigs. Maybe attack chickens."

"That just doesn't sound as exciting."

"Let's focus on getting a kid first, Calvin."

"Right!" he nodded. "Let's adopt some bacon." [1361]
