Quotes: “When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.”
— Jess C Scott (1: The Intern)
“The human body is the best work of art.”
— Jess C Scott (1: The Intern)
“That’s sad. How plastic and artificial life has become. It gets harder and harder to find something…real.” Nin interlocked his fingers, and stretched out his arms. “Real love, real friends, real body parts…”
— Jess C Scott (The Other Side of Life) 
“Friends are the family you choose (~ Nin/Ithilnin, Elven rogue).”
— Jess C Scott (The Other Side of Life)
EXCERPT of Jess’s work (random page from The Other Side of Life):
Nin seemed to know just what she had on her mind. But he decided to let her wait. He cracked his knuckles and relaxed the tension from his neck muscles. 
“All right,” he remarked, pointing to the glass cabinet at the end of the room. It was the one circled on the third map Anya had studied.
Anya folded her arms in front of her, as Nin took a daring backbend over the first red sensor line, balancing on one arm before he flipped over onto his feet. Anya covered her eyes when he reached the center, and came within a hair’s breadth of one of the sensor lines at his chin level. Acrobatic, slinky Ithilnin made an art form out of getting through the sensor obstacle course successfully, jumping over, sliding under, and bending (contorting, almost) with equal dexterity, graceful as a cat.
