Поппи Брайт

Дата рождения: 25. Май 1967

Поппи З. Брайт — американский писатель, создающий произведения преимущественно в стиле сплаттерпанка. Он является транс-мужчиной и предпочитает в обращении к себе мужские местоимения. Одной из особенностей произведений Брайт является наличие большого количества гомосексуальных персонажей в его романах и большей части рассказов.

„Они ходят в своих дешевеньких украшениях, слямзенных из магазинов, в своих драных джинсах, в своих черных одеждах — как знак принадлежности к некоему тайному обществу. Обществу, куда принимают лишь тех, кто всегда опьянен: дешевым спиртным, дождливой полночью, сексом или поэзией. Тех, кто любит малоизвестные группы, которые делают настоящую музыку; тех, кто ложится не раньше четырех утра и боится заснуть, распираемый страхом и кошмарными снами наяву.“

„Если вы когда-нибудь были настолько удачливы, чтобы принадлежать чему-то, если место принимает вас и вы принимаете это место, вы не покинете его только потому, что оно может убить вас. Есть вещи более ценные, чем жизнь.“

„The night is the hardest time to be alive and 4am knows all my secrets.“

„Some nights are made for torture, or reflection, or the savoring of loneliness.“

„I believe in whatever gets you throught the night. [... ] Night is the hardest time to be alive. For me, anyway. It lasts so long, and four A. M. knows all my secrets.“

„There were books about how to be gay; he'd seen them in stores and libraries. Some of them even had diagrams. But there weren't any diagrams about how to fall in love with your best friend and not fuck everything up.“ The Value of X

„You hold onto what you have; you do not give it up easily, even when you know it is poisoning you.“ Wormwood: A Collection of Short Stories

„He has ''. Eddy fumbled for her high school French. 'A heart like an artichoke?' '. He has a leaf for everyone, but makes a meal for no one.“

„It was like discovering that your innermost fires and terrors, the things you believed no one else could fathom, were in fact the basis of a recognized philosophy. Some part of you felt intimately invaded, threatened; some other part fell to its knees and sobbed in gratitude that it was no longer alone.“ Exquisite Corpse

„If you want something, you don't wait for the world to deal it out for you. You take it.“ Lost Souls

„Why bother? I was right all along: the second you make yourself vulnerable to someone, they start drawing blood.“

„When you have too much faith in something, it's bound to hurt you. Too much faith in anything will suck you dry. In this way, all the world is a vampire.“

„Delete nothing. Move nothing. Change nothing. Learn everything.“

„The sky is purple, the flare of a match behind a cupped hand is gold; the liquor is green, bright green, made from a thousand herbs, made from altars. Those who know enough to drink Chartreuse at Mardi Gras are lucky, because the distilled essence of the town burns in their bellies. Chartreuse glows in the dark, and if you drink enough of it, your eyes will turn bright green.“ Lost Souls

„Maybe they did what they had to do to live, and tried to get a little love and have a little fun before the darkness took them.“ Lost Souls

„Stare at him," said Ghost. "They won't bite you if you keep staring at them."

Steve backed away. "They bite?"

Not really. They hiss at you, mostly. The only time geese are ever dangerous is when you happen to be standing on the edge of a cliff. I heard about a guy that almost got killed that way."

By geese?"

Yeah, there was a whole flock of them coming after him. All hissing and cackling and stabbing at his ankles with their big ol' beaks. He didn't know you had to stare them right in the eye, and he panicked. They backed him right over a fifty-foot cliff."

So how come he didn't die?"

This guy had wings," said Ghost. "He flew away.“
