Sorry, I was out of town (Halloween convention ya know).

Correct!!!
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you,

A short-short to start with. If noone guesses, I'll expand it

Book ?

A bit longer

"Good God, woman, where have you been?" he cried furiously.

A morbid lunacy overtook her.


Book ?
"he" ?
"her" = the "woman" ?

Bonus:
What does this lunacy push "her" to do next ?

Incidentally, bonuses are valid without any time limit. There are older bonuses floating around but there is one reasonably recent :
Bonus #1 here while the answers to the main question and bonus #2 were given there
Human is as human does....Animals don't weep, Nine

"Yes?" said ZZZ. He templed his fingers and leaned back in his chair. "Why?"

A guess;
Book: the "glueing pages" of the collection "Borders of Infinity"
YYY= Miles
ZZZ= Illyian

This one should be easy
"Yes, thank you. The thought that a one-eyed sniper, at a range of two kilometres at midnight in a thunderstorm, could not possibly mistake me for you, is very comfortable indeed."


Book ?
"you" ?
"me" ?

I could not find a nice bonus for this one, but I remind the players that there are unanswered bonuses that are valid indefinitely.
For instance :
Bonus #1 here while the answers to the main question and bonus #2 were given there

Of course old bonuses can be answered totally independently from this question. JKCade, you are under a 5 days "no ping-pong rule" exclusion for the present question, but you are welcome to answer the old bonus at any time, like everyone else !

I thought it was easy....
"Yes, thank you. The thought that a one-eyed sniper, at a range of two kilometres at midnight in a thunderstorm, could not possibly mistake me for you, is very comfortable indeed."


Book ?
"you" ?
"me" ?

A bonus which is in itself a hint :
Why is it the case that a one-eyed sniper etc.etc. could not possibly mistake "me" for "you" ? Has it always been the case ?

There are other, unanswered, bonuses that are valid indefinitely.
For instance :
Bonus #1 here while the answers to the main question and bonus #2 were given there

Of course old bonuses can be answered totally independently from this question.

A longer one ?

"Er. Are you comfortable?" "YOU" inquired uncomfortably.
"ME"'s eyes glinted. "Yes, thank you. The thought that a one-eyed sniper, at a range of two kilometers at midnight in a thunderstorm, could not possibly mistake me for you, is very comfortable indeed."
"Oh. Well. Yes, there is that, I suppose."


Instead of XXX, YYY I just used "YOU" and "ME" for the two protagonists
Book ?
"you" ?
"me" ?

A still longer one ?

"What weight are you finally going to choose?" XXX asked curiously.
"You're looking at it. Or I wouldn't have invested the fortune in the wardrobe."
"Er. Are you comfortable?" XXX inquired uncomfortably.
YYY's eyes glinted. "Yes, thank you. The thought that a one-eyed sniper, at a range of two kilometers at midnight in a thunderstorm, could not possibly mistake me for you, is very comfortable indeed."
"Oh. Well. Yes, there is that, I suppose."
"Keep exercising," YYY advised him cordially. "It's good for you." YYY sat down and put his feet up.



Book ?
XXX ?
YYY ?
Here XXX and YYY always stand for the names of the corresponding character. Otherwise the characters are just described by pronouns ("I", "me", "you") Of course when the word "you" appears in XXX's mouth, it means YYY (which was "ME" in the older version)
