"Fuck that, you're here." Mello beamed.

She surveyed him with a blithe amusement. "This pleases you?"
Mello and Hal, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 1: Pride and Prejudice

"What makes you think I'd take your side over any other Watari alumni?"

"Because they're all freaks and we go way back."
Mello and Hal, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 1: Pride and Prejudice

"The good news here is that we have three women. We won't starve." Kiana's jaw dropped and Fenian grinned at her.

"And I have a pile of fucking rocks to throw at you."
Fenian and Kiana, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 2: Good Fight

"You have permission to speak, Deontic."

She looked blankly at him. "I always have permission to speak, Mello."

Fenian snorted, "God, no! They're giving suffrage to the women now? Fuck!"

Century nodded sagely, "I know, it's weird innit? Next thing you know, they'll be extending it to the Irish."
Mello, Deontic, Fenian and Century, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 2: Good Fight

"But amongst the big words that I do know are: castration; celibacy; emasculation in his sleep."
Kiana to Fenian, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 2: Good Fight

"Yes, I'll take your table for you, so that Matt and Fenian don't have to know that you're tiny."
Hal to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 2: Good Fight

"I'm not just saying it, Mail. You really are gorgeous. Oh! God! I wish you could see yourself through my eyes."

"But then I'd have to give up my rare, magical creature, stunning, emerald eyes of pwnage."
Mello and Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 3: Trumpets

"My baby, my guapo, my bonito, my cariño; my impossible and infuriating asshole of a spouse."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 3: Trumpets

"What's his name? The actor. He was in that film."
Hal, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 4: Exposure

"Because Zlata Janakovac is always with you, watching you. She sees what you do."
Kiana to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 4: Exposure

"Even that arrogant fuck, Mello. He probably only puts on the front here, but back home he's into gardening, poetry recitals and raising kittens." Across the table, Matt bowed his head and bit his lip over a smile, but they could all see it because his face was uncovered. "Oh my God! I'm right!"
Kiana, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 4: Exposure

"Yes!" Deontic shrieked, one hand punching the air. "Oh gosh! Oh gosh!" She looked utterly stunned. She could also see Matt's laptop screen. "It's a word! It's a real word! I beat Mello!"
Deontic on the word 'tenable', The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 4: Exposure

"Because while they were all looking at me, I was looking at you. Call it instinct." He blinked. "Call it knowing my husband. Your cage doesn't get rattled often, but when it does, you can be an evil bastard."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 5: Heterogeneous

"Your intelligence is unrivalled. Our marriage is sound. If, and that's a really big if, your grandmother is following you around, then she must be proud of you. Otherwise she would have fucked off in disgust years ago and wouldn't be here for Kiana to see now. I didn't think 'tenable' was a word either. And you're really pretty. Anything else?"
Matt to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 5: Heterogeneous

"If I wanted an emotionless drone for a husband, the last thing I'd have done is married you."
Matt to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 5: Heterogeneous

"They come after you in a pack, because no-one could touch you on their own."
Matt to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 5: Heterogeneous

"The spec is 'made by Matt'."
Mello on the technology, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 6: Leaders in Their Field

"They should just acknowledge that you're the lord and master of the whole universe and all dissension is fallacy."
Matt to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 7: Waltz for Mello and Matt

"Estoy escuchando todo en Español."

Mello chuckled. "Te amo, Mail." There was a kiss on Matt's forehead and a conspiratorial whisper. "Estamos hablando en Español."
Matt and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 7: Waltz for Mello and Matt

Matt smiled out the lie, "It's already forgotten."
Matt to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 8: Pure Morning

"So Fenian has brought a granny and Century is cradle robbing. Joy."
Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 8: Pure Morning

Deontic looked at the toilet door. It remained closed. "Hal said you look really cute with your hood up."

Mello smiled, "Don't you think that I look really cute with my hood up?"

"No." Deontic bristled. "I mean, well it doesn't matter what I mean, I think that Hal is coming on to you."

Mello laughed aloud, then leaned in to state, in hushed tones, "But I like hot, juicy cock."
Deontic and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 8: Pure Morning

"I wanted a cuddle!" Mello replied, shrill. "I just wanted a fucking cuddle! But you have to handle Mail in..." He stumbled over his words, flustered by everything, "You have to know how to handle Mail. You don't just get a cuddle. You have to engineer a cuddle on his terms." He appealed, with wide-eyes, to Hal, "I'm not the baddie here."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 8: Pure Morning

"Because the dogs of Hell beset my every movement with the shavings of Satan's ass!"
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 9: Returning to the Scene

Mello sighed heavily, "Oh Father! Why hast thou forsaken me?!"
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 9: Returning to the Scene

"Kiana, you are in danger of seeing one piece of a very complex picture."

"Be that as it may." Kiana replied, "But it's the only piece I give a shit about."
Mello and Kiana (re Fenian and Wammy's House), The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 9: Returning to the Scene

"Because I don't believe you can be actually cursed." He pondered it. "I believe that you can believe that you're cursed. Life's full of good luck and bad luck, in equal measure, but if you think you're cursed, you just pick out the bad luck and attribute it to the curse. Stuff like that."
Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 10: Secret Knowledge

Mello waited to be contradicted. When it didn't come, he was forced to debate the issue with himself.
The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 10: Secret Knowledge

"What do you make of this witchcraft malarkey?" At Mello's questioning stare, Matt shrugged. "Kiana's one, isn't she? Just enough room out there on the green for a stake."

Mello smirked. "No-one expects the Spanish Inquisition."
Matt and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 10: Secret Knowledge

"Ok, I'm all yours."

"If I was straight, you probably would be." Mello mumbled.
Hal and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 11: The Drums of War

"Ok, I'm all yours."

"If I was straight, you probably would be." Mello mumbled.
Hal and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 12: The Beyond Birthday Route

Matt looked sidewards at him. "What are you going to do? Beat me up?"

Mello tensed, "I haven't ruled out taking you up into the mountains and putting a bullet in your head." They continued on to the hall in silence.
Matt and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 12: The Beyond Birthday Route

"You learned how to blow up a car, at an orphanage?!"
Kiana, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 12: The Beyond Birthday Route

"I'd see you dead before I let you leave me and I'm going nowhere."
Mello to Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 13: Wrong Notes

Across the table, Hal stood. She pulled her coat from the back of her chair and swung it onto her shoulders. Her arms were pushed into the sleeves en route to the door. She paused at the door and smiled back, "I'll be with Mail. If and when we're ordering food, please don't forget us." Then she stepped out into the night. Fenian frowned as the door closed behind her. Century just looked pensive.

Kiana murmured, "Hal declares for Mello."
Hal and Kiana, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 14: Alpha Males

"Sniff of a fucking skirt and she's got him by the fucking balls. They've been shoe shopping and looking around the castle."
Fenian about Century and Siân, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 14: Alpha Males

Matt pulled the goggles onto the top of his head and gazed across, unadorned, at his husband. "Has it not occurred to you that I want the hug?"
Matt to Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 15: Dangerous Information

"It might be easier for you, if you just cuddled him once in a while."

Matt turned his head, facing her fully. He could see courage behind that statement, which meant that Mello had said something to prompt it. "Oh?"

"Sometimes, deep down, I see a scared, little boy hiding behind Mello's Chuck Norris exterior. I think he hits out at you because..." She stopped, looking at him. Matt could feel his own heartbeat pounding against his chest. He knew that his whole demeanour was icy. "I'm speaking out of turn."
Hal and Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 15: Dangerous Information

Mello looked ill. "Mail, I think we're listening to 'The Banshee'."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 15: Dangerous Information

The 'F' filled the screen and the wary Irish lilt could be made out through the electronic shielding. "What?"

Mello's voice shook, "SOS. Computer room. SOS." Then, against all pride, he gasped out a sob, "Liam, please help us."

There was a stunned silence at the other end, then a softly spoken, "I'm on my way."
Fenian and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 15: Dangerous Information

The boy was taking a long time over getting changed, as he gave as his excuse for coming down here with Siân.
Century, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 16: They Became My Family

Fenian realised something fundamental, that he should have known for years. He was bigger than Mello. His reach was longer. He was just as fast and, by St Bride, Cuchulain and all the saints in Heaven, Fenian could throw a punch just as hard.
Fenian, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 16: They Became My Family

"Mello, what is that in English? The thing that you want me to tell you." He watched the tears falling with even more velocity than before. "Gospodin Mol... whatsit?"

"Lord's Prayer." Mello spluttered.

Fenian blinked. "You've forgotten the fucking Lord's Prayer?"
Fenian and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 16: They Became My Family

Kiana was sharp, "Liam!" She was in his face. "Calm the sweet, bastard, fuck down!" She reached for his hands and Fenian saw that his own knuckles were split. She kissed them. "This is not you. I have never seen you raise your fists in anger before. For fuck's sake, Ó Taidhg, what the Hell has gotten into you?!"

"Don't fuss, woman."
Kiana and Fenian, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 16: They Became My Family

It was satisfying to witness The Beast, with his Mafia swagger and alley cat fighting tactics, brought down to his knees by a female.
Mello and Hal from Fenian's POV, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 16: They Became My Family

Then there's Liam. Oh! He likes his drink and sport, don't get me wrong, but I've seen him go out in a fucking blizzard to hunt for a cat lost on the bog.
Kiana about Fenian, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 17: Away With the Faeries

Everything seemed stripped from the beautiful man.
Hal about Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 17: Away With the Faeries

"Are you alright, Mello?" Hal met his eyes, then opened her hands towards him. Mello got the hint, as she knew that he would, but he surprised her by acting upon it. He released Matt and leaned forward, holding Hal in a bear-hug. She reciprocated, understanding just how scared the Slav had been and how shaken he remained. She murmured into his ear. "It will be alright.
Hal and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 18: Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt

Mello sneered, "I don't need your fucking vote to go where I want to!" He moved behind Hal, who swung around to grab him, exposing her back to Matt. A moment later, there was a knife to her throat, which even shocked Mello, though he managed not to show it.
Mello, Hal and Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 18: Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt

"And talk to me like that again, Mello, and I'll really give you something to glare about."
Hal, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 19: Yes, I Dwell in Hell

"Put a motion sensor on our porch; post a guard watching for us leaving; take the wheels off Mail's car; do whatever you want, but inside this chalet, it's just me and my husband tonight." He caught Matt staring back at him from just inside the door. Mello amended his instructions. "Don't touch Mail's car."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 19: Yes, I Dwell in Hell

"I want you to know, from the moment you wake up in the morning to the moment you go to sleep at night, that you are desperately, fiercely and completely loved."

...

"But up there, I didn't find God, because I didn't need God." Matt leaned in and kissed Mello again, despite the blond's horrified half-glare. "I'd got you."
Mello and Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 19: Yes, I Dwell in Hell

Mello gave him a long, cold look. "I'm going to fuck you."

"Yay."
Mello and Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 19: Yes, I Dwell in Hell

You suffer kisses from me, even with your lips all bruised up, because it's me taking you over. Taking away your responsibility, so you won't be held accountable. So you can do nothing wrong." Mello nodded. "So I won't walk away."

Matt smiled, "Suffer?"
Mello and Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 19: Yes, I Dwell in Hell

He looked and sounded dangerous. "Tell me."... He wasn't even in the leather that he habitually donned like armour.
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 20: Sister

Most of them slowed to 20mph to navigate it. Matt took them through at 100 and succeeded.
Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 21: It's Judgment That Defeats Us

"Because we're in this together." He settled on. "For our sister."
Century, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 21: It's Judgment That Defeats Us

His was the inertness of a barracuda in the coralled depths or a cobra in the dust. . . They were all answering a primal warning, forged in their genetic code, in a cave sometime before the last ice age. It said to beware the motionless creature, with eyes like that, because when the attack comes it will be with lightning speed and deadly.
About Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 21: It's Judgment That Defeats Us

"Deontic knows how to fucking fight!" Fenian barked, apropos of nothing. "I was there when she learned!" His tapping accelerated to a frenzy. "She's at least a formado, if not a professor." He stared at the passing numberplates of the row of tourist cars parked along the hotel saturated Glan Y Mor. "If she's stayed hanging around Wammy's, she's probably a fucking mestre by now."

"Yeah." Mello drawled, sounding more West coast American than he usually did. "And she got away from four men, who, we can deduce by her general physical demeanour, once had her surrounded. I wonder how she did that."

...

Mello smirked over a square of chocolate. It was terrifying. "While you're trying to work out why you're sorry, swing by the hospital. Let's see who she put into ER."
Fenian and Mello about Deontic, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 21: It's Judgment That Defeats Us

Mello fixed him with the strangest look. Part disdain, part blankness, part exasperation; and somewhere behind it all, part solving the puzzle. "Right. That will be when Willard diplomatically tells Colonel Kurtz that he's gone insane." He pulled away from Matt with an irritated sneer. "Well, thank you, Mail."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 21: It's Judgment That Defeats Us

"What do you want me to say? I was already in three arguments. I'm going to have to find space in my diary to fit in a fourth. You can't expect me to multi-task. I'm only a weak and feeble man, remember."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 22: I Am Somebody's Mother!

"They're just the scum off the bastard urinals in a public piss-hole. Lowest of the fucking low. A woman says no and you stop. You stop right there. Doesn't matter if it's all the way in and heading for fucking glory, the second she says no, you get it out and walk away."
Fenian, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 22: I Am Somebody's Mother!

"Mail's..."

"Devastatingly gorgeous with a cute, tight ass?" Mello supplied, helpfully.

"No." Deontic frowned.

"I disagree." Mello smiled. "Though I concede that I might be biased."
Deontic and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 22: I Am Somebody's Mother!

"Did you invite them to come on over and ruin your pretty skirt, dress, skirt...?"
Fenian, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 22: I Am Somebody's Mother!

"I've told you my weaknesses." She gasped out, between sniffs.

"Have you?" Mello looked wryly at her. "I really should pay more attention. Do you mind repeating them?"
Deontic and Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 22: I Am Somebody's Mother!

"Mail is like a cross between a sociopath and a little, boy lost. You don't know what he might do. Or how badly he might hurt himself or...."
Deontic, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 22: I Am Somebody's Mother!

"If I give you a blow job, will you fetch the kettle?"
Matt, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 23: There Were Rats

"No hay ratas." Mello exhaled. "But you did punch me nearly in the fucking nuts." He fell back, lying in the twisted wreckage of their quilt. His hand rubbed vigorously beneath the covers. "I got my leg up in time."
Mello, The Annals of Fear II, Chapter 23: There Were Rats
