  1. The commoners all scurried around. She thought they were disgusting. There was no pity in her heart for them, just hate for whom she believed were dirty, poor, grimy human beings. Dressed in rags they swarmed the streets below, and the princess felt physically ill just watching them.

  3. It wasn’t stalking, really. It wasn’t her fault he just happened to take the same route as her. Honestly. It wasn’t like she’d planned it or anything.

    It wasn’t stalking, because she wasn’t planning on talking to him. Or even getting too close to him. She wasn’t in his league at all.

    He was honest and pure, openhearted and genuine. She hid amongst shadows and darkened even the most lighthearted gestures.

    She was a common stone, and he was a polished gem, and they lived in completely different worlds.

  6. A common place scene. A normal state of mind. With the sun out and a gentle breeze. How could the drudgery get worse. Emma sat up from the park bench and closed her mildly entertaining book with a unsurprising slap. She wasn’t really processing the words anyway.

  9. they say it’s common to feel this way and that i shouldn’t be so hard on myself. but this is not right, there’s nothing common about this. nothing common about the way you broke me and the sharp pulsating pain i feel trickling through my veins. it’s not common to want to run away to another part of the country just to find out what seeing you would do to me. it’s not common to torture myself every five seconds and ya know what? fuck you. fuck your alcohol, fuck your lies, and fuck your pathetic life. you make me absolutely sick.

  14. we’re so common place, accepting what is and what is not with the idea that we are subjected to come what may. why can we not change what is common? why can we not act within ourselves based on our desires, our thoughts, our feelings. why must we accept this norm as our own? we can live by our own rules, become uncommon ingenious unacceptable unwanted. that’s fine, we have what we will want.
