//So my dumb computer locked me out of this account for a while, and I also was swamped schedule-wise. But I managed to get most of my homework done, so after a rehearsal (or during, if I’m sneaky) I can get on via my phone.

"…They went up the steps and went through the hall, and went into the dining room, and there they saw a table spread with all manner of beautiful glasses and plates and dishes and napery, with plenty to eat upon it. So they waited and they waited, thinking that the owner of the house would appear, till at last the merchant said, ‘Let’s sit down and see what will happen then.’ And when they sat down invisible hands passed them things to eat and to drink, and they ate and drank to their heart’s content. And when they arose from the table it arose too and disappeared through the door as if it were being carried by invisible servants.
Suddenly there appeared before them the beast who said to the merchant, ‘Is this your youngest daughter?’
And when he had said that it was, he said, ‘Is she willing to stop here with me?’
And then he looked at Bella who said, in a trembling voice, ‘Yes, sir.’”
—La Belle et la Bête by Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont, reconstructed from various European sources by Joseph Jacobs

"We have different understandings of what I’ve done, darling," Gold said with a humorless chuckle. "But perhaps I’ve found you because if I didn’t, I might have brought ruin to many realms. Perhaps you are the Fates’ way of telling me that I’ve done enough."
