“This is not the way these tales end,” Calliope said firmly. “This is not the way that things end when they get to be tales,” Amatus said, “but since ours is not yet told, we cannot count on it. There were a hundred dead princes on the thorns outside Sleeping Beauty’s castle, and I’m sure many of them were splendid fellows.” ― John Barnes, One for the Morning Glory
