Dark Angel.

“You’re kind of incredible. And I feel really stupid for not noticing that before. So I guess what I’m saying is, I’m sorry if anything I said hurt your feelings. And – I see you now.”
Dark Angel.

“Quit it, Gillian. You’re those things. You’re brave and funny and – well, too honorable for your own good.”
Dark Angel.

“You know something weird? I don’t feel exactly whole. And the truth is... Okay, this is going to sound even dumber than I thought, but I’ve got to say it. I can’t help it. And since that day when I found you out there in the snow, I have this feeling that I won’t be, without... Well – you.”

Black Dawn.

“Listen. You said that in your dream I told you to go away. Well, I’m telling you the same thing now. Go away and don’t ever come back. I never want to see your face again.”
Black Dawn.

‘I told you before, but you wouldn’t listen. What do I have to do to make you understand? ...I’m warning you. Don’t come to the castle. If you do, I won’t protect you again.’
Black Dawn.

“You can come out now. Or do I have to come in?”
Black Dawn.

“You’re so close to dying, but you don’t seem to care. Are you too stupid to grasp it, or do you just have a death wish?”
Black Dawn.

“This is what I am. A hunting animal. Part of a world of darkness that you couldn’t survive for a minute in. I’ve told you over and over to stay away from it, but you won’t listen. You turn up in my own castle, and you just won’t believe your danger. So now I’m going to show you.”
Black Dawn.

“You are so... So completely stupid. You don’t think I’ll hurt you... I will hurt you. I’ll show you... I will hurt you. Watch me hurt you.”
Black Dawn.

“There is nothing ordinary about you.”
Black Dawn.

+-- Back.

Eric Ross:

“You cure rattler bites with a touch. You tap into people’s brains. You make up magical potpourri bags. And your insane cousin is the goddess Aphrodite. Did I miss anything?”
Spellbinder/Enchantress.

“I know I love Thea. And she loves me. And if there’s some rule that says we can’t be together, it’s a stupid rule.”

Witchlight.

Gary Fargeon:

“Yeah. Your guardian angel. And I’m here to help you find your heart’s desire.”
Dark Angel.

“...Watch the sarcasm, kid.”
Dark Angel.

“How about if I say I know your heart’s desire is for David Blackburn to fall madly in love with you and for everyone at school to think you’re totally hot?”
Dark Angel.

‘These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.’
Dark Angel.

“Just looking at you. You look particularly beautiful tonight, which is absurd considering you’re wearing flannel pajamas with bears on them.”
Dark Angel.

“You can do anything, that’s for sure. Sweet dreams, beautiful.”
Dark Angel.

‘Not hurt you. It was only him I wanted. I could have slipped in as he slipped out...’

Dark Angel.

“On the way back home I wrapped my car around a tree. And that was it. Suddenly I’m in Neverland. Can’t talk to anybody, can’t touch anybody, but sure can see everything.”
Dark Angel.

“One last thing. I didn’t change my mind about killing him because I couldn’t go through with it. I did it because I didn’t want you to hate me forever.”
Dark Angel.

+-- Back.

Gillian Lennox:

“Who’re you calling kid?”
Dark Angel.

“Look, after all I’ve seen...after you saved my life – and my bits...how could I not trust you? How could I ever not trust you?”
Dark Angel.

“You’re a funny kind of angel.”
Dark Angel.

“...I happen to like my brain cells. Maybe if you had more respect for yours you wouldn’t be flunking biology.”
Dark Angel.

“I would do anything for David.”
Dark Angel.

“I feel very witchy.”
Dark Angel.

“...May I be given the power of the words of Hecate. It is not I who utter them, it is not I who repeat them; it is Hecate who utters them, it is she who repeats them.”
Dark Angel.

‘Being popular means everybody’s glad when something bad happens to you.’
Dark Angel.

“I’m a Hearth-Woman, a daughter of Hellewise, and if you don’t let me in, you stupid werewolf, I’m going to do to you what I did to your cousin there.”
Dark Angel.

“Who are you? What are you, really? Who are you? ...I don’t know anything about you!”
Dark Angel.

“I know what you are. Not an angel. Not a devil. You’re just a person. Just like me.”
Dark Angel.

“Maybe...some angels are real.”
Dark Angel.

+-- Back.

Hannah Snow:

“I think I’m going insane.”
Soulmate.

“Everything used to be so perfect. I mean, I had my whole life under control. I’m a senior at Sacajawea High. I have nice friends; I have good grades. I even have a scholarship from Utah State for next year. And now it’s all falling apart...because of me. Because I’m going crazy.”
Soulmate.

“Do you think that you can just attack me and then come back and say ‘I’m sorry’ and it’s all going to be okay? Well, it isn’t. If there was ever anything between us, it’s all over now. There is no second chance.”
Soulmate.

“I hate you. I don’t need you. I don’t want you. And I’m telling you for the third time, keep the hell away from me.”
Soulmate.

“How stupid do you think I am? I mean, really. If you want to do something for me, you can turn around and go. Go away forever.”
Soulmate.

“I refuse to be...a victim...anymore.”
Soulmate.

+-- Back.

Hunter Redfern:

“But the soulmate idea – that’s really the last straw. It’s a disease infecting our people. You understand why I have to stamp it out.”
The Chosen.

“You’d better watch yourself, girl. That mouth’s going to get you in trouble.”
Black Dawn.

“You don’t know how happy it makes me just to think about it. To finally have a true heir. A male heir of my own line, and untainted by witch blood. I would never have married that witch Maeve Harman if I had known my son was still alive. And not only alive, but out having sons! The only true Redferns left in the world, you might say.”
Black Dawn.

“I can’t wait to show you off to the world outside. My great-grandson. And to think that a year ago I didn’t know of your existence.”
Black Dawn.

“In the new order after the millennium, we’ll have hunts like this every day. Each of us will have a city of humans to hunt. A city of throats to cut, a city of flesh to eat.”
Black Dawn.

“We won’t stop with enslaving the humans. The witches are our enemies now. Think of the power you’ll feel when you drink their lives!”
Black Dawn.

+-- Back.

Iliana Dominick:

“I’m just a normal kid with a normal life, and I want to go home! I don’t know anything about fighting. Even if I believed all this stuff, I couldn’t help you. I hate PE; I’m totally uncoordinated.”
Witchlight.

“I am a witch and the daughter of a witch. Mine was the hand that took your power; mine was the hand that buried you in silence. Hecate was the most ancient of my mothers. Hecate’s hand is my hand now.”
Witchlight.

“I really do care about him. I guess I’m sort of in love with him, too. But I saw... The two of you were meant to be.”
Witchlight.

“I’m the Witch Child. They’d better listen to me.”
Witchlight.

+-- Back.

James Rasmussen:

“I want to save you. I want to save you, Poppy.”
Secret Vampire.

“Poppy, I know you’re upset. And it’s my fault; I made a mistake. I didn’t want Phil to know what was really going on, and I told him I was just pretending to care for you. But it wasn’t true. If you search your feelings, you’ll know it’s not true. You’re turning into a telepath, and I think you already have enough power to read me.”
Secret Vampire.

“And we can walk into people’s homes without being invited, and roll in garlic if we don’t mind losing friends.”
Secret Vampire.

“You don’t love somebody because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song that nobody but you can understand.”
Secret Vampire.

“Ash is the real thing. The ultimate vampire. He doesn’t care about anybody but himself, and he loves to make trouble.”
Secret Vampire.

“You’re sure you’re all right? ...Good. Then just hang on a moment while I kill this guy and we’ll go.”
Secret Vampire.

“You know, you’ve never really cared about anyone. But someday you will, and it’s going to hurt. It’s going to hurt – a lot.”
Secret Vampire.

“He meant that you – and Phil – aren’t human after all. Somewhere among your ancestors there’s a witch.”
Secret Vampire.

+-- Back.

Jez Redfern:

“It’s simple. You run. We chase. If we catch you, you die. We’ll give you three minutes head start.”
Huntress.

“You better run, boy.”
Huntress.

“I told them three minutes. You want me to break my word?”
Huntress.

“I’m not even a Night Person. I’m vermin.”
Huntress.

“Great. So my family’s going to destroy the world.”
Huntress.

“It’s a family affair. Hunter’s my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather. It’s only right that I stop him. And if anything happens to me – well, one Redfern less is probably a blessing to the world.”
Huntress.

“I suppose because then I’d have to break every bone in your body, you jerk.”
Huntress.

“I have a twisted sense of humor. So. Want to start this fight again?”
Huntress.

“I can’t be your soulmate, Morgead.”
Huntress.

“My father broke the laws of the Night World. He fell in love with a human, and they got married, and here I am.”
Huntress.

“So, anyway... Are you going to try and kill me now? Or is the engagement just off?”
Huntress.

“I told you never call me Jezebel.”
Huntress.

+-- Back.

John Quinn:

“That’s one thing I can count on. Your self-interest. You always look after Number One, don’t you?”
Daughters of Darkness.

“I really think you’d better kill me now. Unless you’re too stupid or too scared. This wood won’t hold forever, you know. And when I get out, I’m going to use that sword on you.”
The Chosen.

“If, you think that because I was a human once, I have any pity on them, you are very, very wrong. I hate humans more than I hate the Redferns.”
The Chosen.

“I’m faster than any human. I’m stronger than any human. I can see better in the dark. And I’m much, much nastier.”
The Chosen.

“Take your hands off her. Before I knock you through the wall.”
The Chosen.

“The only other possibility is that I kill you. Better this way than that.”
The Chosen.

“Besides, now that I have seen your face, I can’t stand the sight of myself in your eyes. I know what you think of me.”
The Chosen.

“Don’t you understand? As long as you’re human, Night World law says you have to die if I love you. If I love you. And that’s the problem, of course. I do love you.”
The Chosen.

“This is my soulmate. And we’re leaving together.”
The Chosen.

+-- Back.

Lily Redfern:

“You’re weak. You’re short-lived. You’re not very bright, and not very important. In a word, you’re...dinner.”
The Chosen.

+-- Back.

Maggie Neely:

“And you think that’s okay. Grabbing people from the outside world and dragging them in here to be slaves.”
Black Dawn.

“You’re stronger than me; we both know that. But whatever you do, you can’t make me your prey. You don’t have that power. You can’t control me.”
Black Dawn.

“You can kill me. But that’s all you can do. I told you, you can’t control me. And you can’t change what’s between us.”
Black Dawn.

“They’re people. I don’t know how to get you to see that. They matter, too.”
Black Dawn.

+-- Back.

Mary-Lynnette Carter:

“They call me Mary-Lynnette. That do speak of me.”
Daughters of Darkness.

“Ash? Get bent and die.”
Daughters of Darkness.

“Don’t you see? We’ve gotten mixed up in this Night World – and it’s a place where bad things can happen. Not just bad like flunking a class. Bad like... Like getting killed dead. And that’s serious, Mark. It’s not like the movies.”
Daughters of Darkness.

“But we’re not kids. We can’t be like Jade and Mark, and just hold hands and giggle and never think about the future.”
Daughters of Darkness.

“If we’ve got forever, then you can give me time. Go back and wander a little. Take a look at the Night World and make sure you want to give it up.”
Daughters of Darkness.

“Take a look at humans and make sure you want to be tied to one of them.”
Daughters of Darkness.

+-- Back.

Maya:

“I mentioned that you were likely to get rough with her if things didn’t go your way.”
Soulmate.

“Not all vampires can shapeshift. But, then, I’m not like other vampires. I’m the first, my darling. I’m the original.”
Soulmate.

“Because, then, my sweetpea, I wouldn’t win. And I have to win. Don’t you understand that yet? I have to win – because I’ve given up too much to lose. It can’t all be for nothing. So winning is all there is.”
Soulmate.

“I’m through fooling around with you, cupcake.”
Soulmate.

“You had guts – after all.”
Soulmate.

+-- Back.

Morgead Blackthorn:

“Did it ever occur to you that people would be worried about you? That people would think you were dead?”
Huntress.

“Oh, yeah? And you hit like a four-year-old. You couldn’t take me down if I stood here and let you.”
Huntress.

“You think you know everything. But you don’t know me anymore. I’ve changed.”
Huntress.

“Don’t try that stuff. ...You know what stuff! That ‘I’m Jez and I’m so wild and beautiful’ stuff. That ‘Why don’t you just drop your stick and let me hit you because it’ll be fun’ stuff.”
Huntress.

“You can give up anytime, now. Because I’m going to win and we both know it.”
Huntress.

“Drop dead, Jezebel.”
Huntress.

“You know, there’s still a connection between us. I can feel it, sort of like a cord between our minds. It pulls. You can’t deny it, Jez. It’s there whether you like it or not. And – it tells me things. Things about you.”
Huntress.

“You’re a dead Daybreaker. I can’t believe this. How am I supposed to protect you from the whole Night World?”
Huntress.

“You heard me. I don’t care who your friends are, Jez. I don’t even care that you came back to use me. I’m just glad you came back. We’re soulmates, and nothing can change that. Even if you won’t admit it.”
Huntress.

‘What difference does it make? You and me – we’re lost anyway. And without you, I don’t care what happens.’
Huntress.

“I love you, you stupid human.”
Huntress.

“You’re the idiot, idiot.”
Huntress.

+-- Back.

Philip North:

“Hey, buddy, you wait out here while she gets dressed.”
Secret Vampire.

“The wrong idea? I come in here and find the two of you in bed, with all the curtains drawn, and you’re telling me I’ve got the wrong idea?”
Secret Vampire.

“I’m gonna kill you, Rasmussen!”
Secret Vampire.

“Look, buddy. I don’t know who you are or what horse you rode in on. But that’s my sister there you’re messing with, and I figure I’ve got the first right to knock your head off.”
Secret Vampire.

+-- Back.

Poppy North:

“I’m a...sex pixie!”
Secret Vampire.

“You... You... So it was all pretending? Is that it? You just felt sorry for me? ...And no wonder. And no wonder you wouldn’t say you loved me. And no wonder you would do all that other stuff, but you never even kissed me.”
Secret Vampire.

“You don’t know what it feels like to know you’re going to die.”
Secret Vampire.

“The reality is that one way or another I’m going to die soon. And I’d rather die and wake up a vampire than die and not wake up at all.”
Secret Vampire.

“...if it’s against the rules to tell a human or love a human, and you break the rules, then there must be some punishment for you...”
Secret Vampire.

+-- Back.

Raksha Keller:

“I’m expendable. I don’t know who you are, but I’m willing to bet you’re expendable. The only one here who isn’t expendable is her.”
Witchlight.

“You’re the most selfish, spoiled little brat I’ve ever met!”
Witchlight.

“Love is weakness. And nobody is making me sentimental and weak! Nobody!”
Witchlight.

“We’re both shapeshifters, and there was a minute when we sort of lost our objectivity. We’re under a lot of stress. We had a moment of...physical attraction. It happens, when you do a job like this; you just can’t take it seriously.”
Witchlight.

“What kind of prince would put his personal happiness above the fate of his people? Above the fate of the whole freaking world, for that matter?”
Witchlight.

+-- Back.

Rashel Jordan:

“This kitten has claws.”
The Chosen.

“Tch, vampire family infighting. Why is it always so hard to get along with your folks?”
The Chosen.

“There is plenty of darkness. It’s everywhere. It’s inescapable. So the only thing we can do is embrace it. If we hold it close, it won’t hurt as much.”
The Chosen.

“I’d rather get to know a head louse.”
The Chosen.

“I can’t kill you. God help me, I can’t.”
The Chosen.

“What’s wrong, did you hunt too many little kids to keep track of? Or are you so crazy you believe your own public image?”
The Chosen.

“Hold me tighter. I’m a little cold.”
The Chosen.

+-- Back.

Thea Harman:

“Go jump in Lake Mead, Ash.”
Secret Vampire.

“I think I’m in love.”
Spellbinder/Enchantress.

“Not this time. Eric loves me, and you can’t change that. You can’t take him.”
Spellbinder/Enchantress.

“I’m now the princess of forbidden spells.”
Spellbinder/Enchantress.

“By the power of Earth and Air and Water. By the power of Fire on this night of Hecate! By my own power as a daughter of Hellewise! Go speedily, conveniently and without delay, you bitch!”
Spellbinder/Enchantress.

+-- Back.

Thierry Descouedres:

“She’s happy in this life. And she – doesn’t want me.”
Soulmate.

“All I’ve ever brought her is misery and pain. I guess she realizes that. So I’m ending the cycle...now.”
Soulmate.

“Even if you kill her, she’ll still be alive – here. In me. I keep her here. She’s a part of me. So until you kill me, you can’t really kill her.”
Soulmate.

“I almost forgot. You’re seventeen today. Congratulations.”
Soulmate.

+-- Back.
