->''"The world is getting weirder. Darker every single day. Things are spinning around faster and faster, and threatening to go completely awry. [[Creator/WilliamButlerYeats Falcons and falconers. The center cannot hold.]]\\
But in [[UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} my corner of the country]], [[{{Protectorate}} I'm trying to nail things down]]. [...] I don't want to live in a world where [[MightMakesRight the strong rule and the weak cower]]. I'd rather make a place where things are a little quieter. Where [[OurTrollsAreDifferent trolls stay the hell under their bridges]], and [[TheFairFolk where elves don't come swooping out to snatch children from their cradles]]. Where [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] respect the limits, and where the faeries mind their p's and q's.\\
{{My name is|InigoMontoya}} [[MeaningfulName Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden]]. [[BadassBoast Conjure by it at your own risk]]. When things get strange, when what [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight goes bump in the night]] flicks on the lights, when no one else can help you, [[WhoYouGonnaCall give me a call]]. I'm in the book."''

->''They were dealing with [[FamedInStory something far more dangerous than me]], [[HurtingHero Harry Dresden]], who's [[TheAllegedCar battered old Volkswagon]] was currently in the city impound.\\
They were dealing with the [[TheDarkSide potential dark lord nightmare warlock]] they'd been busy fearing [[ThouShaltNotKill since I turned sixteen]]. They were dealing with the wizard who had faced the [[EvilSorcerer Heirs of Kemmler]] riding a [[CrazyAwesome zombie dinosaur]], and emerged victorious from a fight that had flattened [[MagicKnight Morgan]] and [[FullContactMagic Captain Luccio]] before they had even reached it.\\
They were dealing with the man who had [[RefugeInAudacity dropped a challenge to the entire Senior Council]], and who had then actually showed, apparently willing to fight -- on the shores of an [[SupervillainLair entirely too creepy island]] in the middle of a freshwater sea.''

->''One mistake [[spoiler: at the end of my life]] couldn't erase all the times I had stood unmoved at the edge of the abyss and made snide remarks at its expense. They could kill me, but they couldn't have me. I was my own.''

->''Let's get something clear right up front. \\
[[PerspectiveFlip I'm not Harry Dresden.]]\\
Harry's a [[MagicKnight wizard]]. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. [[CrazyAwesome He's Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull]], [[BadassLongcoat with a big leather coat]] and a [[HandCannon .44 revolver in his pocket]]. [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu He'll spit in the eye of gods]] [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done]], and to hell with the consequences and yet somehow [he] manages to remain a decent human being.\\
I'll be damned if I know how.\\
But then, I'll be damned regardless.\\

->''"[[ForWantOfANail This singularity is an amalgamation of many, many choices.]] Fitz chose to place what little precious trust he had in you. You chose to involve Anthony in the young man's existence. Anthony chose to come here despite the danger. Aristedes chose to assault him. Waldo and Daniel chose to involve themselves in his rescue. Beyond that, every single one of the people known to each individual I have mentioned have made choices that impacted the life of those involved. Together, all of you have determined this reality.
