“I have seen this time and time again with my friends, with other family members. Our whole demeanor changes, our mannerisms, our figures of speech, when we move from one context to another. Listen to someone you know when they pick up the telephone. We have special voices for different people; our attitudes, our moods change depending on whom we are with.”—Orson Scott Card. Introduction. Speaker for the Dead.
Speaker for the Dead - Enderverse / The Ender Saga Book 2/13
Introduction - You did well Mr. Card, telling us that the first few chapters wouldn’t be boring, and telling us the whole story. Thank You!
1. Pipo -Not Rooter! Please! -‘The piggies hadn’t even planted a tree on him.’
3. Libo - I thought this chapter would be remorseful, but I failed. -‘To marry him would be to murder him.’
4. Ender - Jane .. you!
5. Valentine - Ho! Ender. There’s nothing like morning reading. Always the best part, the sister. -Uncle Ender!
6. Olhado - Jane for the love and friendship.
7. The Ribeira House - 'curiosity kills a bow meow' -Ender, You impossibly calm. -The Ribeira Family. Awesomeness. -Orson was right about his introduction, what he said: I could show the miracle of a family in transformation. -wait what?! the words are getting blurred, I can’t read anything, what … what’s happening what’s wrong with my eyes?!
8. Dona Ivanova - I have nothing to say .. … . ..
9. Congenital Defect - Interesting. Too bad of Ouanda and Miro I guess.
12. Files - Aw Olhado! Aw Ender! Aw Novinha! Aw YOU ALL !!!

“No human being, when you understand his desires, is worthless. No one’s life is nothing. Even the most evil of men and women, if you understand their hearts, had some generous act that redeems them, at least a little, from their sins.”—Orson Scott Card (via poeticalscience)
“The sunlight on her back, the breeze against her wings, the water cool under her feet, her eggs warming and maturing in the flesh of the cabra: Life, so long waited for, and not until today could she be sure that she would be, not the last of her tribe, but the first.”—Orson Scott Card, from Speaker for the Dead (thanks, karmasabitch-soami)
"Learn from your mistakes." I was printing back to back and I decided to print from last page, when I started printing at the back, I FORGOT TO UNCHECH “PRINT FROM LAST PAGE.” At least I put pages and title as a footer.
