            Be that as it may, Ilraen, the fact of the matter remains that it is just not proper behavior. But very well, I will attempt to turn a blind eye, though I cannot say I will ever approve of the... more

              Sorry. {= ( Yeah, it's tough getting into the head of a character you disagree with. Especially since we don't really know all that much about Andalite society, all things considered. I mean, do they ... more

            The actual quote is from Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. The fuller passage runs as follows: "Do you mean to say that you allow your queens to fly—against Threads?" F'lar ignored the fact that... more
