Due to the nature of the game there are many actions we do over and over, and sometimes the text associated for them sticks in our heads. What have you memorized over time?


I'm now seeing this one in my sleep, due to always selling any proscribed material:

SMEN has a load of great lines, but the one that really sticks with me is from the Forgotten Quarter. I did the Gallery of Serpents a lot preparing for the Noman, and for some baffling reason the phrase "There is neither lock nor guard" rattles around my head at odd moments.

Do you recall how we came to that place? And they sang of their lightnings and shapeful disgrace? And we tilted our vanes and ennobled our spires. They welcomed us then and commingled all choirs.

Not exactly a common one, but it stuck anyways.

"Rich and red" (Ace of Hungers in Fallen London, or feasting at the Chapel of Lights in Sunless Sea) comes unbidden to the front of my mind whenever I even think about pork products. I was already trying to avoid red meats (for health and environmental reasons) before my brushes with Unaccountably Peckish content, but since exploring the Chapel of Lights and the Foreign Office I've been especially repulsed by the stuff. I don't consider that a bad thing, because it definitely helps me stick to fish and poultry. Maybe I should try candles...

"Starveling Kitty! Starveling Kitty! Ruled the roofs of five stolen cities!" The Starveling Cat rhymes aren't exactly difficult to memorize, but this one is the first to come to mind when I think of the SC. It's got an energy to it which makes me wish I could go on crazy adventures with the Starveling Cat and learn to rule the roofs as it does. As it is, the only Starveling Cat adventure involves soul-staining and a journey NORTH.

edit: another one from Sunless Sea. Nuncio spoilers.
[spoiler]"The inscription resolves itself and is known to you.

NO WORD LOST."

It's the single most emotionally powerful moment in the whole of my experience with Fallen London and Sunless Sea. I myself don't quite understand why or how, but even skimming the event text on the wiki page overwhelms me almost to tears.

NO WORD LOST.[/spoiler]

A week ago I went to see a jousting tournament and somewhere in the back of my head, I could hear a faint "He has brought a horse. And a lance. A lance." looping endlessly forever.

I can also definitely recite the entire chain of Fidgeting Writer, all of it. When I'm woken up at 3am, after an evening of heavy drinking, while standing on one leg and juggling knives. And very appetising- "gorge yourself. Leave with juices dripping down your chin." from Sunless Sea.

Other than that, I have a lot of favourite quotes that weren't all that common, but made their permanent home between my ears, apparently, due to being... striking. I actually have this little google doc where I save all my favourite FL quotes. There's a lot of them in there. A lot.

I think I'm able to recite about half of the Order Serpentine fairy tale from pure memory at this point.

Correction: I only remember "a little snake, no bigger than your finger" and "THE ROSE, WHICH IS CALLED EXILE'S ROSE, has a property of passage".
