lost_spook: (aiken - dozen words (lucas))
Firstly, any icons I make for this challenge will be snaggable in the usual way (unless otherwise stated). And if I'm talking about books/TV/films etc, I will try not to be spoilerish.

So, here goes... (You will soon see why I wanted to pair these two).

1. Book: Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce (1958)


"Time no longer..." murmured Tom, and thought of all the clocks in the world stopping ticking, and their striking stopped too, drowned and stopped forever by the sound of a great Trumpet. "Time no longer..." repeated Tom; and the three words began to seem full of enormous possibilities.

2. Book: A Traveller in Time by Alison Uttley (1939)


I smell the hot scents of the herb garden drenched in sunshine, and the perfume of the honeysuckle after rain, but stronger than these is the rich fragrance of the old house, made up of wood-smoke, haystacks, and old old age, mingled together indissolubly. All these scents and sounds are part of the story I have to tell, with light and darkness, shadows and tragedy interwoven.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 and [livejournal.com profile] dbskyler each gave me seven subjects for a meme recently. I have decided now to make sure I included those subjects somewhere in this challenge. Indeed, most of them I already had without even thinking when I went to check! (I'm not sure about the lemons, though, but we'll see... If I can fit lemons in somewhere, I will.)
