I sort of think of it as her motto:
“Other people are just… there. If they aren’t helping, they’re just in the way. Weave around them, knowck them over, do whatever you have to, but get past them.”

“It’s like I said before. People suck. Period. They’re stupid and clueless and when you tell them that they’re stupid and clueless, they just get pissed off because they know it’s the truth and they can’t be bothered to change it.”

@Fanboy107: LOL, if you want to, sure. But duplicates are FINE, everyone. After all, there’s only so much dialogue in the book!

“Go to hell,” she says. She doesn’t say it loud. Or with anger. Or with venom. She says it with exhaustion. And she walks out of the room and up the stairs and out the front door.
So, it’s short but I love how it still has a HUGE effect.

Kyra quote

on Fri June 26, 2009, 23:37:56

We watch each other over the phone for a second. Her cigarette hangs from the corner of her mouth. She snaps the phone shut, and tucks it away, the taps her cigarette’s ash off and sucks in more smoke. “I don’t know. I really don’t. Like I said: noble. Indian warrior. All that shit. I figured… I figured I’d take a picture of it. Keep it to prove to myself that not everyone in that place”- she gestures vaguely in the direction of the high school-“is a Neanderthal.”
I also like “faceless, anonymous sock puppets. Isn’t that like saying the same thing three different ways?”

WOAH! Since im on a roll and feel like amazing, Im gonna send in another quote, just for giggles. But if it wins o.O Then its not for giggles anymore, its serious stuff man. 😀
“God, what is with you? Can’t you get it? I thought you were different, but your not […] What the hell is it? What do you want from me? You want me to stop hiding my tits? You want me to wear tight sweaters so you can check ’em out? You want me to be normal? Is that what you want? […] You want me to jerk off so you can think of Dina while I do it? […] Yes, you would. You would. Because she’s perfect. She’s perfect and I’m broken. Just a broken piece of- Broken… […] You want to kiss me, don’t you? I can tell. You want to kiss me, but you’re not allowed[…] Go away […] I don’t need your help, Fanboy […] bite me, here. You think crying solves anything? I cried and my dad cried and we all cried when my mom died, and you think it solved anything at all? You think tinkerbell comes back? You think Jean Grey comes back as Phoenix? You think any of that stupid shit they’ve been cramming in your head since you could sit up straight is true? Do you? Welcome to the real world, Fanboy”
Sorry, but I love that part so much!! And its so true. So take that Fanboy107 :p Just a friendly compition. <3

Haha! Well, I thought I’d change my quote, since it’s ladies first, and it might be more fun if no one had the same quote, but since you’ve changed yours first, all is good. 😀 By the way, your Goth Girl impression is pretty good.

Woah fanboy107, I excell. I go beyond and above man!
“Nice? Nice? That’s it? […] It’s a testament of stupidity is what it is. It used to be beautiful here. There was a pond down there. Then they built the houses back there, and the idiots who bought the houses decided that they didn’t want the pond because they were all afraid of mosquitoes bredding in it. So they drained it and figured they’d build a playground instead […] And look. No one could be bothered. They drained it, the imaginary mosiquito problem went away, and they couldnt be bothered to do anything else. So what could have been a little bit of unspoiled nature in the middle of the more stupid cookie-cutter houses, they made a dumb-ass swamp and fenced it in so the dumb-ass kids they all brred won’t accidentally fall in. People are stupid. People suck. Period”
btw, im just typing random quotes because I have this book memorized and I have nothing better to do with my life… I really probably should be working on my tarilor for the contest. Woah. I have it like half done but I need to get ma friends together for the pics and mini movies. Yes, i am e4xcelling for that one too : ) Woah. Holy Sh*t. That was ironic. The security code is Excell. Hahaha. Anyways, this is far long enough so ima go.

“If you have the balls to tell them to shove it, they crumble. Easy.”
and her cameo from Boy Toy:
“You seem happy coming out of there. Did he blow you, or was it the other way around?”

“I like him fine. All the cool screen names were taken, so I went with Promethea. Is that all right? Do I pass your test, or do I have to name the founding members of the Legion of Super-Jackoffs?” (pg 55)
Because it’s voiced at the beginning of the Fanboy/Kyra relationship, setting the tone for what you can expect their conversations to be like: snarky, witty, and chock-full of comic references. Besides, I’m really just a fangirl at heart, and this is one of those instances where I giggle when I read it.

Memory Loss

on Tue June 30, 2009, 16:26:44

I’m basing this off of memory so bare with me:
“You think I’m doing this for you? No, I’m doing it for this” as she holds up pages of Schemata at the convention.
Expresses many teenage relationships in my life.

You mean…?

By: Fanboy107
on Tue June 30, 2009, 17:30:37

This quote?:”I’m not here for you, dumb-ass. I’m here for that. I’m here because it’s better than you.”
Another one I always liked was this:”You get… you get like ninety-nine percent of it. I never knew a guy who… it just drives me friggiin’ crazy that you don’t get the last one percent.”

“My sister’s a freakin’ pharmacy on spiked heels ever since she lost the kid.”
As callous as this quote is from her, it just struck me funny, I don’t know why. Also, it’s not the best quote of hers, the others I wanted to write were taken and I wanted to put up a different one.

I Wish

By: Fanboy107
on Thu July 02, 2009, 18:36:44

I wish I had that for memory, but that’s only Fanboy’s quotes. You know that. There’s the prior part when she calls Fanboy about the one Schemata scene, and says something similar, so I looked them both up. But you did specify at the convention, so I’m assuming that’s the one you meant. The other one was this:
“God, you’re so wrapped up in your own pathetic little fantasies that you can’t even see what’s going on in front of your face! This is a terrific graphic novel, but it has a problem and I’m trying to help you fix it! Do you understand that?””No. Why are you helping me if you don’t like me?””I’m not helping you! I’m helping the story.” and so on into the quote I previously posted. 🙂
“You’re lying. I can tell. I can tell when you’re lying.”

Actually–

By: Fanboy107
on Thu July 02, 2009, 19:21:11

There’s a THIRD one. Which is the closest, and probably the one you meant. Yeah, I know, I’m trying way too hard. But I love this story.
“You still don’t get it. Fine. I don’t give a shit. I’m not here for you, dumbass. I’m here for that. I’m here because it’s better than you. And I can’t believe that asshole doesn’t get it.”
Third time’s the charm. Hopefully. If not– I give up.

I live in a tourist town on the Jersey Shore, and I totally understand the feeling of watching the beauty of nature being ripped away by humans. Kyra’s a lot more pessimistic than I am, but at times, I can’t help but agree with her.

They’re just grown-up kids with more money who listen to shitty music and hate everyone younger than them because they know they’ve screwed up their lives and they want another shot at it. But all of us, all of us kids think that adults are in charge, too. they’ve got us messed up, up here.” She points to her head. “so they get away with all kinds of crap.” She sniffs. “but if you have the balls to tell them to shove it, they crumble.
