From The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud
Shortly after dawn the following day, those emerging from their houses on the corner of Ink and Spice streets made a gruesome discovery: four bodies sitting neatly against a wall, their seven legs stretched out side by side into the road.

A way of making an entrance

From The Witches of Karres by James Schmitz
Yeee-eep!" shrilled a high, childish voice. It could have been mortal agony, terror, or even hysterical laughter. The captain broke into an apprehensive trot.

A way of making an entrance

From Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas:
A crown for war, a crown to wear into battle. A crown to lead armies.
There was no fear on her face, no doubt, as Aelin hefted her shield, flipping Goldryn in her hand once before the first of Morath's soldiers was upon her.

A line from a Sitcom

Iverian explained to me what a sitcom is, and said that The Hunger Games is not necessarily considered a sitcom so I used another quote from another source ...

The Colour of Magic
by Terry Pratchett
He thought about how it might be to be, say, a fox confronted with an angry sheep. A sheep moreover, that could afford to employ wolves.

May continues with this prompt:

A story in and of itself

From Frogkisser! by Garth Nix
“If I'm not back by nightfall, come and take a very careful look", said Anya. "But I don't expect to need rescuing. I'm not that kind of princess."
"What kind of princess are you?"
"Not the kind that needs rescuing", said Anya firmly.
