~+*+~ CHAPTER ONE ~+*+~

"Lissa and I had been best friends ever since kindergarten, when our teacher had paired us together for writing lessons. Forcing five-year-olds to spell Vasilisa Dragomir and Rosemarie Hathaway was beyond cruel, and we'd—or rather, I'd—responded appropriately. I'd chucked my book at our teacher and called her a fascist bastard. I hadn't known what those words meant, but I'd known how to hit a moving target. Lissa and I had been inseparable ever since. "
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"His face was unreadable, but he held out his hands in what was apparently supposed to be some sort of calming gesture, like I was a rabid animal he was planning to sedate."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~CHAPTER TWO ~+*+~

Dimitri: "Were you really going to attack all of us? Doing that…protecting her like that—it was very brave. Stupid, but still brave. Why did you even try it?”
Rose: "Because I'm her guardian." 
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Are you taking us to Kirova?”
Dimitri: "Headmistress Kirova," he corrected.
Rose: "Headmistress. Whatever. She's still a self-righteous old bit—” My words faded 
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


"Beside him (Aaron), holding his hand, was a Moroi girl who looked about eleven but had to be older, unless he'd become a pedophile during our absence. With plump little cheeks and blonde ringlets, she looked like a porcelain doll. A very pissed off and evil porcelain doll. She gripped his hand tightly and shot Lissa a look of such burning hatred that it stunned me."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"The old hag (Kirova) looked exactly like I remembered, sharp-nosed and gray-haired. She was tall and slim, like most Moroi, and had always reminded me of a vulture."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "She might be wild and disrespectful, but if she has potential—”
Rose: "Wild and disrespectful? Who the hell are you anyway? Outsourced help?”
Kirova: "Guardian Belikov is the princess's guardian now, Her sanctioned guardian.”
Rose: "You got cheap foreign labor to protect Lissa?”
- Dimitri Belikov, Rose Hathaway and Ellen Kirova (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "Then give her extra training sessions,"
Kirova: "Who's going to put in the extra time? You?”
Dimitri: "Well, that's not what I—”
- Kirova crossed her arms with satisfaction. -
Kirova: "Yes. That's what I thought.”
- Dimitri Belikov & Ellen Kirova (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER THREE~+*+~

"I honestly couldn't believe he was still around. The guy was so freaking old, he should have retired. Or died."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Hey Mason, wipe the drool off your face. If you're going to think about me naked, do it on your own time.”
Mason: "This is my time, Hathaway. I'm leading today's session.”
Rose: "Oh yeah? Huh. Well, I guess this is a good time to think about me naked, then.”
Eddie: "It's always a good a time to think about you naked,"
- Rose Hathaway, Mason Ashford and Eddie Castile (Vampire Academy)


Mason: "Come on, Hathaway, You can be my partner. Let's see what you've been doing all this time.”
- An hour later, he had his answer. -
Mason: "Not practicing, huh?”
Rose: "Ow, I hate you,"
Mason: "You'd hate me more if I held back.”
Rose: "Yeah, that's true,"
Mason: "You actually did okay.”
Rose: "What? I just had my ass handed to me.”
Mason: "Well, of course you did. It's been two years. But hey, you're still walking. That's something."
Rose: "Did I mention I hate you?”
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "They're making me take extra practice sessions, I'll be ready.”
Mason: "Extra sessions with who?”
Rose: "That tall guy. Dimitri.”
Mason: "You're putting in extra time with Belikov?”
Rose: "Yeah, so what?”
Mason: "So the man is a god.”
Rose: "Exaggerate much?"
Mason: "No, I'm serious. I mean, he's all quiet and antisocial usually, but when he fights…wow. If you think you're hurting now, you're going to be dead when he's done with you.”
- Great. Something else to improve my day. -
- Rose Hathaway and Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)


Mia: "It looks to me like it came from a garage sale. I thought a precious Dragomir would have standards."
- Grabbing Doll Girl by the shoulder, I jerked her away. -
Rose: "She does have standards, which is why you're done talking to her."
- Mia Rinaldi and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER FOUR ~+*+~

Rose: "Are you lost, little girl? The elementary school's over on west campus.”
Mia: "Don't you ever touch me again. You screw with me, and I'll screw you right back.”
- Oh man, what an opening that was. -
Rose: "And if you mess with either of us again, I'll break you in half. If you don't believe me, go ask Dawn Yarrow about what I did to her arm in ninth grade. You were probably at nap time when it happened.”
- The incident with Dawn hadn't been one of my finer moments. I honestly hadn't expected to break any bones when I shoved her into a tree. Still, the incident had given me a dangerous reputation, in addition to my smartass one. The story had gained legendary status, and I liked to imagine that it was still being told around campfires late at night. Judging from the look on this girl's face, it was. -
- Rose Hathaway and Mia Rinaldi (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Any idea who I just threatened to beat up?”

Lissa: "Not a clue."

- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)

Jesse: "Hey Rose, welcome back. You still breaking hearts?”
Rose: "Are you volunteering?”
- Jesse Zeklos and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Liss, You aren't Andre." 
Lissa: "He was always involved in all that stuff.”
Rose: "Yeah, well, he's dead now.”
Lissa: "You know, sometimes you aren't very nice.”
Rose: "You don't keep me around to be nice. You want nice, there are a dozen sheep in there who would rip each other's throats to get in good with the Dragomir princess. You keep me around to tell you the truth, and here it is: Andre's dead. ..."
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


"I had a standing arrangement with God: I'd agree to believe in him—barely—so long as he let me sleep in on Sundays."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Don't worry, I won't bite. Well, at least not in the way you're afraid of." He chuckled at his own joke.
- Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER FIVE ~+*+~

Lissa: "What are you doing here?"
Christian: "Taking in the sights, of course. That chair with the tarp on it is particularly lovely this time of year. Over there, we have an old box full of the writings of the blessed and crazy St. Vladimir. And let's not forget that beautiful table with no legs in the corner.”
- Lissa Dragomir and Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)

Christian: "Oh. So that's why you're up here. For a pity party.”
Lissa: "This isn't a joke. I'm serious."
Christian: "So am I. I love pity parties. I wish I'd brought the hats. What do you want to mope about first? How it's going to take you a whole day to be popular and loved again? How you'll have to wait a couple weeks before Hollister can ship out some new clothes? If you spring for rush shipping, it might not be so long.”
- Christian Ozera and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


Lissa: "Everyone here thinks they know who I am.”
Christian: "Yeah. It's kind of hard to outlive your past,"
- Lissa Dragomir and Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)


Christian: "Squatters' rights. Besides, I have to make sure I stay near the chapel as much as possible so people know I haven't gone Strigoi…yet."
Lissa: "I used to always see you at mass. Is that the only reason you go? To look good?"
Christian: "Sure, Why else go? For the good of your soul?”
- Christian Ozera and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


- So I suggested to Dimitri that maybe he should let me off this time. He laughed, and I was pretty sure it was at me and not with me. -
Rose: "Why is that funny?”
Dimitri: "Oh, You were serious.”
Rose: "Of course I was! Look, I've technically been awake for two days. Why do we have to start this training now? Let me go to bed, It's just one hour.”
Dimitri: "How do you feel right now? After the training you've done so far?”
Rose: "I hurt like hell.”
Dimitri: "You'll feel worse tomorrow.”
Rose: "So?”
Dimitri: "So, better to jump in now while you still feel…not as bad.”
Rose: "What kind of logic is that?"
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Hey, did you help come up with the plan to get us back? Because it was pretty good. Brute force and all that.”
Dimitri: "You're complimenting me on that?”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "You aren't, like, into him, are you?”
Lissa: "No. Of course not."
Rose: "Good. Because if you're going to go after a guy, steal Aaron back." 
Lissa: "Mia would claw my eyes out.”
Rose: "We can take her. Besides, he deserves someone who doesn't shop at Gap Kids.”
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


Jesse: "You've got to slip your leash tonight. We're going up to that spot in the woods around eight thirty. Mark got some weed.”
Rose: "Can't slip that leash. I'm with my Russian jailer.” 

Jesse: "Can't you ever get off for good behavior?"

Rose: "Sure. If I was ever good."

- Jesse Zeklos and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

~+*+~ CHAPTER SIX ~+*+~

Rose: "But what about church on Sundays? I don't think it's really fair to keep me away from my religious…um, needs."
Kirova: "I wasn't aware you had any religious needs.”
Rose: "I found Jesus while I was gone.”
Kirova: "Isn't your mother an atheist?"
Rose: "And my dad's probably Muslim But I've moved on to my own path. You shouldn't keep me from it."
- Rose Hathaway and Ellen Kirova (Vampire Academy)


"He (Father Andrew) disappeared through the door near the altar, the one Lissa had taken to the attic. I considered fleeing but thought God might strike me down for that."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Come on, she picks fights and talks about us behind our backs. She accused me of getting jeans from the Salvation Army yesterday.”
Lissa: "Your jeans are from the Salvation Army.”
Rose: "Well, yeah, but she has no right making fun of them when she's wearing stuff from Target.”
Lissa: "Hey, there's nothing wrong with Target. I like Target.”
Rose: "So do I. That's not the point. ...”
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


Mason: "I saw you guys sparring outside the chapel. Have you no respect for the house of God?”
Rose: "You've got about as much respect for it as I do, you heathen. You didn't even go. Besides, as you said, we were outside."
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "You know what I lke about you, Mase? You think just like I do."
Mason: "Frightening concept."
-Rose Hathaway and Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)


Mason: "Maybe they (Vladimir and Anna) were hooking up,"
Rose: "He was a saint.”
Mason: "So? Saints probably like sex too. That 'brother and sister' stuff is probably a cover. See? They were 'bound' together. It's code.”
Rose: "I don't think so. They're just close. Guys and girls can just be friends."
Mason: "Yeah? We're friends, and I don't know what's in your 'heart and mind.' Of course, some might argue that one can never know what's in the heart of a woman—”
Rose: "Oh, shut up,"
-Rose Hathaway & Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)



~+*+~ CHAPTER SEVEN ~+*+~

Rose: "Whoa, Dimitri, I realize this is actually a current hit in Eastern Europe right now, but do you think we could maybe listen to something that wasn't recorded before I was born?”
Dimitri: "What does it matter to you? I'm the one who's going to be listening to it. You'll be outside running.”
-Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "what's with all the running, anyway? I mean, I realize the importance of stamina and all that, but shouldn't I be moving on to something with a little hitting? They're still killing me in group practice.”
Dimitri: "Maybe you should hit harder,"
-Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "What is that? Is it a crow?”
Sonya Karp: "Too big. It's a raven.”
Lissa: "Is it dead?”
Rose: "Yeah. Definitely dead. Don't touch it.”
- Rose Hathaway, Sonya Karp, and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER EIGHT ~+*+~

Lissa: "You're under house arrest. They won't let you hang out and talk to him.”
Rose: "I don't really want to 'talk' to him. We'll slip away."
Lissa: "I just don't know about you sometimes."
Rose: "That's because you're the cautious one, and I'm the reckless one."
- Lissa Dragomir and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Ralf burst into flames. Moroi magical specializations were well known, and after scanning the room, I deduced three fire users: Ralf, his friend Jacob, and—Christian Ozera. Since neither Jacob nor Ralf would have set Ralf on fire, it sort of made the culprit obvious. The fact that Christian was laughing hysterically sort of gave it away too."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Okay? Okay? He's out of his mind. He set Ralf on fire..."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER NINE ~+*+~

Christian: "Not much to it. They suspended me for a week, that's all. Not like it's hard to sneak out. As you can see.”
Lissa: "I'm surprised you didn't get more time.”
Christian: "Disappointed?”
Lissa: "You set someone on fire!”
- Christian Ozera and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


"You're some kind of superstar. Some kind of evil, compulsion-abusing superstar."
- Christian Ozera to Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


"People think I'm unstable, but I tell you, Rose is ten times worse. Of course, that makes it harder for people to fuck with you, so I'm all for it."
- Christian Ozera to Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


"You're a good kisser," I countered, though it wasn't entirely true. He drooled a little more than I would have preferred.
- Rose Hathaway to Jesse Zeklos (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "I suggest you get out of here as fast as you can before I turn you over to someone who will punish you accordingly. If I ever see you like this again, I will be the one to punish you. And it will hurt. A lot. Do you understand?"
Rose - Jesse swallowed, eyes wide. None of the bravado he usually showed was there. I guess there was "usually" and then there was being held in the grip of a really ripped, really tall, and really pissed-off Russian guy
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "You see something you like?"
Dimitri: "Get dressed.”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "I get in that kind of situation all the time, Comrade. It's not a big deal."
Dimitri: "Stop calling me that. You don't know even know what you're talking about.”
Rose: "Sure I do. I had to do a report on Russia and the R.S.S.R. last year.”
Dimitri: "U.S.S.R. ..."
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "Now get back to your room—if you can manage it without throwing yourself at someone else.”
Rose: "Is that your subtle way of calling me a slut?”
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER TEN ~+*+~

"'So, I saw J last night,' begins the person with bad handwriting, to which the response is, 'What happened,' followed by no fewer than five question marks. Understandable, since sometimes one—let alone four—just won't get the point across, eh?
The other speaker then asks, 'How was it?' The response is, 'Good,' punctuated with a smiley face to confirm said adjective. Well. I suppose kudos are in order for the mysterious J, hmmm?
'So, like, how far did you guys go?' ... 'Not very. We got caught.' And again, we are shown the severity of the situation, this time through the use of a not-smiling face."
- Mr. Nagy (Vampire Academy)

"Why, Mr. Zeklos, are you the aforementioned J? The one who earned a smiley face from the sloppy writer?"
- Mr. Nagy (Vampire Academy)



~+*+~ CHAPTER ELEVEN ~+*+~

Rose: "Okay, what am I doing wrong?”
Dimitri: "Nothing.”
Rose: "If I wasn't doing anything wrong, I'd have rendered you unconscious by now.”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "The battle cry sort of gave you away. Try not to yell next time.”
Rose: "Would it have really made a difference if I'd been quiet?”
Dimitri: "No. Probably not.”
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I so did not need this complication in my life right now."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I briefly contemplated and then dismissed any attempts at jumping into the aisle and tackling the queen."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I'll kill her, you know. The queen, not Natalie. Screw the guardians. I'll do it. She can't get away with that."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Do I need to give you the Christian's-a-psychopathic-loser talk again?"
- Rose Hathaway to Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "You weren't about to just start a fight, were you?”
Rose: "Of course not, I don't start fights where people can see them.”
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "She thinks you're a freak, but she's too nice to say anything.”
Christian: "But you aren't too nice?”
Rose: "No. Not when I feel sorry for someone.”
-Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)


~+*+~ CHAPTER TWELVE ~+*+~

"I know it's impossible to believe a freak like me could keep his mouth shut—especially since neither of you can—but I have better things to do than spread stupid rumors."
Christian to Rose and Lissa (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Oh, I get it. He said we had sex."
Christian: "And uh, Ralf too. That you and he—”
Rose: "I—what? That I had sex with Ralf too? That asshole! I'm going to—”
Christian: "There's more.”
Rose: "How? Did I sleep with the basketball team?”
- Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)



Lissa: "At least she isn't like you. She doesn't pretend to be my friend one day and then ignore me for no reason.”
Christian: "Yeah? I thought that was the way all royals were supposed to act. You certainly seem to be doing a good job with it. Or maybe you're just using compulsion on me to make me think you're a two-faced bitch. Maybe you really aren't. But I doubt it.”
- Lissa Dragomir and Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)


Some tiny, tiny part of me was starting to feel sorry for Christian. It was only a tiny part, though, and very easy to ignore.
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "It won't happen to you. You're too . . ." 
Rose - He groped for the right word, and I mentally substituted all sorts of possibilities. Goddess-like. Scorchingly sexy.
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "Like beating-her-up kinds of things," 
Rose: "Oh God, That's horrible. And she…she just let it happen?”
Dimitri: "She did. But I didn't.”
Rose: "Tell me, tell me you beat the crap out of him.”
Dimitri: "I did.”
Rose: "Wow. You beat up your dad. I mean, that's really horrible…what happened. But, wow. You really are a god.”
Dimitri: "What?”
Rose: "Uh, nothing."
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)



"There was so much testosterone in the air, I felt like I needed a gas mask."
-Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I couldn't be Mason's girlfriend because when I imagined someone holding me and whispering dirty things in my ear, he had a Russian accent."
-Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "You know, I still don't approve of your whole hero thing, but you did scare them. That was almost worth it.”
Mason: "But you don't approve?”
Rose: "No. I mean, it's hot in principle but not in practice.”
-Rose Hathaway and Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)



"He's (Christian) got kind of an attitude, did you ever notice that?”
- Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)


"Save her. Save her from herself!"
- Sonya Karp (Vampire Academy)


"Through the fuzzy, alcoholic buzz, I felt a trickle of her emotions. They were strong enough to practically knock me over. Black. Angry. Merciless. Startling feelings to be coming from sweet and steady Lissa. I'd known her since kindergarten, but in that moment, I barely knew her. And I was afraid."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "I had to hit the last guy who asked me that, and you're a hell of a lot prettier than Jesse. It'd be a waste.”
Xander: "Pretty? I'm stunningly sexy but not pretty.”
- Rose Hathaway and Xander Badica (Vampire Academy)


"Have I mentioned you can be a huge bitch sometimes?”
- Lissa Dragomir to Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


I don't know what's crazier: what you're actually telling me or the fact that you actually read something to find all this out.”
- Lissa Dragomir to Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Well, maybe that's the problem. We're deciding who's 'important' based on family alone, so we end up with these screwed-up people making decisions. That's why Moroi numbers are dropping and bitches like Tatiana are queen."
-Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I was also starting to think that I might have made a big mistake about Christian. He was creepy and dark and liked to set people on fire, true. ..."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Wait...Christian."
Christian: "Yeah?"
Rose: "Thanks for the books." He didnt say anything. "The ones you gave Mason,"
Christian: "Oh. I thought you meant the other books."
Rose - Smartass.
- Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)

Christian: "And I don't want to hear it from Mason. You sent him to apologize for you. Step up and do it yourself.”
Rose: "You're a jerk,"
Christian: "Yeah. And you're a liar. I want to see you eat your pride.”
- Christian Ozera and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Christian: "If you weren't so psychotic, you'd be fun to hang around.”
Rose: "Funny, I feel that way about you too.”
- Christian Ozera and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)



Lissa: "You've got three thermal shirts and a hoodie, You've gone all boring on me.”
Rose: "Hey, I don't see you buying slutty tops.”
Lissa: "I'm not the one who wears them.”
Rose: "Thanks a lot.”
- Lissa Dragomir and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Did you see that dress?”
Dimitri: "I saw the dress.”
Rose: "Did you like it?”
- He didn't answer. I took that as a yes. -
Rose: "Am I going to endanger my reputation if I wear it to the dance?”
Dimitri: "You'll endanger the school.”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


"Back to prison. Maybe if you fake a heart attack, I can make a break for it.”
-Rose Hathaway to Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "If they let me go. Kirova's still deciding if I've been good enough.”
Lissa: "Show her those boring shirts you bought. She'll go into a coma. I'm about ready to.”
- Rose Hathaway and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)



"The only thing better than imagining Dimitri carrying me in his arms was imagining him shirtless while carrying me in his arms."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I survived the whole day guarding Lissa, and you guys said I did a good job. Then, I get back here and meet my downfall in the form of a bench."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "This is from me.”
Rose: "How'd you manage to buy this? I saw you the whole time at the mall.”
Dimitri: "Guardian secrets.”
Rose: "What's this for? For my first day?”
Dimitri: "No, Because I thought it would make you happy.”
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "You have a guardian angel.”
Rose: "I don't believe in angels, I believe in what I can do for myself.”
Dimitri: "Well then, you have an amazing body. For healing, I mean.”
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"I Swear to God or whoever else you want to believe in."
- Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)


"I saw him because I see everything. Easy when no one notices you.”
- Christian Ozera (Vampire Academy)


Christian: "I'm a lot of things, but I'm not a liar. That's your department. And Rose's.”
Lissa: "We don't—”
Christian: "Exaggerate stories about people's families? Say that you hate me? Pretend to be friends with people you think are stupid? Date a guy you don't like?”
Lissa: "I like him.”
Christian: "Like or like?”
Lissa: "Oh, there's a difference?”
Christian: "Yes. Like is when you date a big, blond moron and laugh at his stupid jokes.”
- Then, out of nowhere, he leaned forward and kissed her. It was hot and fast and furious, an outpouring of the rage and passion and longing that Christian always kept locked inside of him. Christian pulled back from the kiss but still kept his face next to hers. -
"That's what you do with someone you like.”
- Christian Ozera and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)



"Are you more psycho than usual?"
- Rose Hathaway to Mia Rinaldi (Vampire Academy)


Mason: "And I have a surprise for you when we get there.”
Rose: "Is it in a bottle?"
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Got delayed, Guardian Petrov. You know how it is with girls. Always got to look perfect. You especially must know all about that.”
- Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)


Rose: Then I saw where he was leading me and I came to a screeching halt."No."
Mason: "Come on, it's going to be great."
Rose: "You're taking me to Jesse and Ralf. The only way I can EVER be seen with them is if I've got a blunt object, and I'm aiming between their legs."
- Rose Hathaway and Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)

"Jesse and Ralf didn't notice us at first, but when they did, and amusing array of expressions played over their faces. First they saw my body and the dress. Testosterone took over as pure male lust shone out their faces. Then they seemed to realize it was me and promptly turned terrified. Cool."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

- Mason gave Jesse a sharp poke in the chest with the end of his finger. -
Mason: "All right, Zeklos. Tell her."
- Jesse didn't say anything, and Mason repeated the gesture, only harder. -
Mason: "Tell her."
Jesse: "Rose,we know none of that stuff happened."
- I almost choked on my own laughter. -
Rose: "DO you? Wow. I'm really glad to hear that. Because you see, until you said that, I'd been thinking it HAD happened. Thank God you guys are here to set me straight and tell me what the hell I have or haven't done!" 
- Mason Ashford, Rose Hathaway and Jesse Zeklos (Vampire Academy)

"I want to hear it from you, big boy.”
- Mason Ashford to Ralf Sarcozy (Vampire Academy)

Mason: "You haven't heard the best part yet."
Rose: "Yeah? Like the part where we rewind time and none of this happened?"
Mason: "Next Best thing." He tapped Jesse again. "Tell her. Tell her WHY you did it."
- Jesse looked up and exchanged uneasy looks with Ralf. -
Mason: "Boys, you're making Hathaway and me very angry. Tell her why you did it."
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

~+*+~ CHAPTER TWENTY ~+*+~

"Mia really hated us. She'd just moved beyond poor-girl-wronged-by-girl's-brother and well into sociopath territory"
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

"Uh... wait... you mean sex?" My astonishment prevented me from thinking of a response. Mason thought it was hysterical. Jesse looked like he wanted to die.
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

"Well? What do you think? I rule, right? You can tell me. I won't mind.”
- Mason Ashford (Vampire Academy)

Mason: "They promised. Everyone'll know by lunch.”
Rose: "Why not now? They slept with a girl. Hurts her more than them.”
Mason: "Yeah. True. They didn't want to deal with it tonight. You could start telling people if you wanted to. We could make a banner.”
Rose: "You got any markers and paper?…"
- Mason Ashford and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Mia: "-you and your slutty friend! I'm goint to tell everyone what a psycho you are and how they had to lock you in the clinic because you're crazy. They're putting you on medication. That's why you and Rose left before anyone else could find out you cut-"
- Whoa, not good. Just Like at our first meeting in the cafeteria, I grabbed her and jerked her away. -
Rose: "Hey. Slutty friend here. Remember what I said about standing too close to her?"
- Mia Rinaldi and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

"I'm really not good with impulse control. I punched Mia as hard as I could..."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Do you think I'm pretty?”
Dimitri: "I think you're beautiful.”
Rose: "Beautiful?”
Dimitri: "You are so beautiful, it hurts me sometimes.”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "You…you got rid of that dress fast, I thought you liked it.”
Dimitri: "I do like it, I love it.”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)



Unknown guradian: "Prince Victor Dashkov?" 
Rose - Like there was any other freaking Victor Dashkov. 
- Rose Hathaway and Unknown guardian (Vampire Academy)


"They're still on Eighty-three…but their turn is coming. They aren't speeding. They don't want to get pulled over.”
- He (Dimitri) nodded, not looking at me. He most definitely was speeding. -
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)



Victor: "I know how you healed Rose.”
Lissa: "That…was different. Rose wasn't that hurt. ..."
Victor: "Not that hurt? I'm not talking about her ankle ... I'm talking about the car accident. Because you're right, you know. Rose didn't get 'that hurt.' She died.”
Victor Dashkov and Lissa Dragomir (Vampire Academy)


"After all, how does one choose who gets to be healed? They'd say it wasn't fair. That it was like playing God."
- Victor Dashkov (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "No, Roza. You stay here.”
Rose: "The hell with that. I have to go help her.”
Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "What are you doing here?"
Christian: "What's it look like? I'm a stowaway.”
Rose: "Don't you have a concussion or something?”
He shrugged like it didn't matter.
- Rose Hathaway and Christian Ozera (Vampire Acadmey)



"Rescue appeared in the form of Alberta, emerging through some trees. With a gun in hand, she shot the hounds without hesitation. Boring as hell perhaps—and completely useless against Strigoi—but against other things? Guns were tried and true."
Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"His eyelids fluttered, and his eyes regained their life again. Focusing on Lissa, he smiled. It was like watching a Disney movie."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"She (Lissa) broke up with Aaron. I'm sure she did it very nicely, but it still had to be hard on him. She'd dropped him twice now. The fact that his last girlfriend had cheated on him probably wasn't helping his confidence any."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "Rose, I'm seven years older than you. In ten years, that won't mean so much, but for now, it's huge. I'm an adult. You're a child.”
Rose: "You didn't seem to think I was a child when you were all over me.”
- Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"Some part of you will always ... fight to cling to life and experience all it has. That's why you're so reckless in the things you do. You don't hold back your feelings, your passion, your anger. It makes you remarkable. It makes you dangerous."
- Victor Dashkov to Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"The greatest and most powerful revolutions often start very quietly, hidden in the shadows."
- Victor Dashkov (Vampire Academy)



"I fought against her, trying to mount some kind of defense, but it was like fighting Dimitri on crack."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


"And then, suddenly, he (Dimitri) was there, charging down the hallway like Death in a cowboy duster."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)


Rose: "Was he right?”
Dimitri: "Who?”
Rose: "Victor…he said it couldn't have worked. The necklace.”
Dimitri: "What do you mean?”
Rose: "The spell. Victor said you had to want me…to care about me…for it to work. Did you? Did you want me?”
Dimitri: "Yes, Roza. I did want you. I still do. I wish…we could be together.”
- Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)


Dimitri: "You and I will both be Lissa's guardians someday. I need to protect her at all costs. If a pack of Strigoi come, I need to throw my body between them and her.”
Rose: "I know that. Of course that's what you have to do."
Dimitri: "No. If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you.”
Dimitri Belikov and Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)

"I held out my arm to it, half hoping it'd come land on me in some sort of dramatic, movie-worthy gesture. All it did was look at me like I was an idiot, spread its wings, and fly off."
- Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy)
