Quotes / Enfant Terrible


Since I was no bigger than a weevil, they've been saying I was evil
That if "bad" was a boot that I'd fit it
That I'm a wicked young lady, but I've been trying hard lately
O fuck it! I'm a monster! I admit it!
Nick Cave, "The Curse of Millhaven"

Everyone's going to be free
But they'll have to agree to be free
They'll have to agree to be less free than me
'Cos I rule the world you see
So wait for the army of kiddie winkies
And terrible tiny tots
In armoured school buses
Firing poison pea-shooters
And sinking their milkteeth into your thighs
Delapsus resurgam! When I fall I shall rise!
10CC, "I Want to Rule the World"

Gabe: These are babies that lie. Babies that cheat. And yeah, babies that kill.
Tycho: How can a baby do those things?
Gabe: Man, you're asking me to get inside the head of some crazy-ass, fucked-up baby. I don't want to go there.

Ladd: You...You're not really a child, are you?
Czeslaw: Glad to see you understand so quickly. Now, if you can kill all of those passengers for me...

It is total propaganda that all children are good and innocent.
Symus, Cwen's Quest

"Is he not beautiful?" she cried. "Is my son not beautiful, as fair as the summer sun?"
These were her last words.

I hope to meet you again, Flit-oniisan... (gives a Psychotic Smirk) if you survive long enough, that is.
Desil Galette, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE

The look on your face when a toddler rips your heart out and shows it to you? Priceless.
Richard, Looking for Group

“With the shoulder bone connected to the,” she paused, “Hip bone…”

“And the hip bone connected to the… back bone.”

She drew a pair of forceps from beneath her dress, another two pairs of forceps were retrieved, joining the first.

“And the back bone connected to the… knee bone. And the knee bone connected to the… hand bone.”

I was scared. I could admit that. I could barely think straight, I couldn’t move, and whatever she’d dosed me with was rendering me unable to use my power. It was there, it wasn’t like what Panacea had done; it hadn’t shut it down entirely. I could sense what my bugs did, and I could maybe give them crude instructions, but I couldn’t do anything even remotely complicated or delicate.

"And the neck bone connected to the-” She rocked her head to either side as she finished, “Head bone.”

A century ago, Velya fell in love with, and "wed" one Elaine Cassidy, a 10-year-old Boston socialite. He watched from afar as Elaine meticulously spidered her way into a dominant position within her neurotic family by reducing her mother to catatonia, contriving her sister's untimely demise, and cleverly manipulating her sensitive elder brother into a madhouse. Velya was entranced; aiding little Elaine's schemes from a distance, Velya ensured the girl's inheritance of the entire Cassidy fortune. The young and impressionable Elaine, for her part, was quickly taken with the wise and Mephistophelean vampire noble upon meeting him, and the two monsters joined in a sanguine union.

The pitter-patter of tiny feet. A sensation a little like nostalgia and a lot like a night terror. Cherub voices in the gloom. Listen.
"Play with us."
"Don't go. We love you. We love you very much."
"Games are fun when you're dead!"
By the time you hear the twinkling laughter, it is already too late.
The Buzzing on the Little Ones, The Secret World

"It's a beautiful day outside. Birds are singing. Flowers are blooming. On days like this, kids like you... S H O U L D B E B U R N I N G I N H E L L."
Sans as the Final Boss of the Genocide Route, Undertale

You see, they get visits at night, by black-eyed children. I don't mean they've got bruising around their eye sockets, I mean their eyes are entirely black, with no whites, irises or pupils. They usually come in pairs and they are usually inadequately dressed for the weather. They visit houses, approach cars, hotel rooms, even boats. And they knock, and if you answer, they ask to come in. They don't engage in conversation - in fact they seem to have a limited range of questions and responses, which they communicate in a demanding monotone. They are insistent and evasive, and appear vulnerable. You get an intense feeling of dread and panic. These children terrify you. They want to come in. And sometimes they tell you they want to feed. And then you see their eyes and your mind can't cope, because their eyes are entirely black.
There is only one encounter recorded where one of these children was let in and people survived.
Driver Error, by Paul Meloy

Trapped within a helpless body for its first few years of life, the fomor bides its time, but eventually the child will begin to show signs of the bad seed that created it. Such fomori are cruel and uncaring, but often quite clever at covering up their behavior and acting innocent. Siblings of such Bane Children, unless also fomori, rarely survive childhood.
Bane Children torture their pets, poison their grandmothers, beat up other children and steal their possessions, and create mayhem wherever they go. Because they never do anything in front of witnesses or in such a way that anything can be proved against them, they can literally get away with murder. And if one Bane Child sounds scary, imagine mama trying to deal with quintuplets.
