Favorite Quotes:

"You can't be both the hero and the villain, Veld. You're a murdering fuck, not some charming detective. You're a murdering fuck who likes it. Just because you have a bullshit system for figuring out who is or isn't worthy of getting cut down doesn't change the way your breath hitches while it's happening or the look in your eye." From The New School of Psychoanalysis by Verdot. Classic man, classic. My favorite quote.

"They say that you're not actually crazy if you talk to yourself. It's only when you start responding to yourself that you're actually crazy." I can't remember where I've read this line (it ain't even word-for-word), I think it was here at in one of the stories. (I'll find it later and properly site it, but it doesn't belong to me.) The funny thing was that when I've read this quote, I was like, 'God, I'm doomed.'

Along those lines: "Why are you talking to yourself?" "That's because I'm guarenteed to have an intelligent conversation..." Again, I don't know where this came from, but I'm starting to thumb through the phone book for any good psychiatrists. Know of any good ones? :P Dr. Crane will be fine...' _-'

"I don't actually think I'm crazy. It's the rest of the world that's wrong in the head!" Keiji Maeda, Samurai Warriors 2: Empires. I find that starting to be one of my personal mottos.

"I don't need help." Batman says to a wannabe 'Batman' during the Dark Knight. And being the lovable, snarky psychoanalysist that he is, Dr. Drane quips, "That's not what I think!" Seriously, my theory is is that if Heath Ledger didn't die and was re-incorporated into the third installment of Batman, both him as the Joker and Dr. Crane (Cillian Murphy) would be the most hilarious thing since Bush choking on a pretzel...

"I hope you don't believe in ghosts, Rufus?" Veld asks this question to Rufus in Verdot's The Last Emperor of Mandalay before Veld is 'executed' before a firing squad. I also find that later in the story, he tells Rufus very accurately, "My theory that Shinras are related to cockroaches seems to be sound." He made that statement after Rufus was pulled out of the rubble of the Shinra Building during meteor's descent. Basically, Tseng tricked him into babysitting Rufus... _

"Yo..." I started saying it for two to three years now because I'm basically making fun of people who write Reno (Red-head Turk extraordinaire, FFVII) saying 'yo' after every sentence like it's a replacement for the period. So now, I got my bosses, trainers, and coworkers saying it and people at my school. _

"Prove your honor to me!" Angeal Hewley, FFVII: Crisis Core, during DMW

This is my personalized, classic, and trademark quote to people who haven't seen or heard from me in a while and they're like, "I haven't seen you in a while..." My response... "I haven't seen me either. So if you do, let me know cuz I'm currently suffering from separation anxiety..."

"I'm don't mean to be rude, but... it's me being MEAN that's gonna be rude..." Me to my fellow co-workers and classmates.

"I'm a borderline sociopath..." Me.

"Dad, can a please have a .50 Caliber Desert Eagle to shoot people with... pretty please?" Me. Seriously...

"Hmm...? Oh, I was just thinking of all the bloody ways to kill you without being caught. Any suggestions?" I say to some of my co-workers.

"And you... You take too long to take a SH#T!!" Spike, to the fourth robber who was in the bathroom in Cowboy Bebop's Gotta Knock A Little Harder

"Don'cha get IT?! I'm gonna SPLATTER GRAMMA!!" The same fourth robber in the beginning of Cowboy Bebop's Gotta Knock A Little Harder

"I bet you say that to all the girls. If you hadn't noticed, however, I happen to be a woman: There's far more to desire me for than just... beauty." Lady No, Samurai Warriors 2: Empires who I happen to agree with when it comes to all the guys that hit on me with lame ass lines... -_-'

"I won't ever smack a b-tch, but I sure as hell will SHAKE the sh-t outta one!" from a good friend of mine... 'Doctor Devine' ; )

"Great. A whole country full of Kanetsugus. Juuuust... kill me now...!' Masamune Date, Samurai Warriors 2: Empires

"Is that supposed to be your head between your shoulders...? I thought it was a kumquat." Nobunaga Oda, Samurai Warriors 2: Empires

"He f-ckin’ owned the couch, man. Look at him pose, look at him go. He was a total gangster." Spike Spiegel, Simple by Radishface

"Are your parents related?" Sephiroth, This Army Life by Nicolle

"Success! I think you're learning self-control. Keep it up. Next week we'll start on the alphabet." The Doc, needful by Mostly Harmless III

''People… they didn’t touch him. Bad things happened.''

''This was insanity… this was bliss, no it was insanity.''

''People just didn’t touch Veld Dragoon''
