Quotes / The Wild Hunt

Go To

There often by him he would see,
when noon was hot on leaf and tree,
the king of Faerie with his rout
came hunting in the woods about,
with blowing far and crying dim,
and barking hounds that were with him;
yet never a beast they took nor slew,
and where they went he never knew.
—from Sir Orfeo, as translated by J. R. R. Tolkien

Join, hide, or die. Those are your options when the Wild Hunt comes for you.. Well tonight, the Hunt is joining me.
Harry, The Dresden Files (when the Hunt catches up with him)

Yippie-yi-yay! Yippie-yi-yo!
Ghost riders in the sky...
Ghost Riders in the Sky, Johnny Cash
