    Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.


    • Halloween Romance:
      • In the beginning, when Ferdinand is coming up with explanations for things that are actually part of him being a vampire while dressed as a vampire for a Halloween party.
      • One of Selene's friends, who's in on the secret, ponders what would happen if they unleashed her full moon self on the football team.
      • "Oops. Now we have a cupholder."
      • Selene tries to scratch her ear with her toe after a difficult night.
      • In the apartment he shares with the only people who (initially) know he's a vampire, Ferdinand's bedroom door is marked "Stay Away from the Lair!".
      • Ferdinand taking advantage of bat form to sulk, while hanging from the shower curtain pole.
      • A frustrated friend calls Ferdinand "[a] self-pitying emo douche!"
      • Selene's younger brother, Ben, makes repeated botched attempts to righteously slay Ferdinand when he visits her family. Ferdinand suspects something is up but finds it more annoying than intimidating.
      • Cassiopeoia "Cassi" Anghel, Ferdinand's sister, prefers calling him "Ferdy". This has since become a Fan Nickname.
      • When asked how he obtained a large sum of money, the sickly-looking Ferdinand explains he pretended to be stoned and/or drunk, went to all the gyms in town, and bet the biggest, toughest-looking guy there that he could bench more than him.
      • Selene worries that a certain building may have rats. Ferdinand says he could always pretend they were "Capri-Sun juice bags with legs".

      • When it turns out Matthew's uncle is an old enemy of the Anghels, the adults get into a vicious volley of insults and accusations. Matthew's mother, having not heard a thing, then joins them and cheerfully offers the family drinks. After a pause Dianne asks for a soda.
      • Dianne narrates that the reason Matthew's mother doesn't check on his bedroom is because she lacks the safari equipment to get within ten feet of it.
      • Dr. Nat Silver insists on putting a Winnie-the-Pooh band-aid on Ferdinand when he's had a blood sample taken.
    • Waking Echoes:
      • Taylor tries to explain her very serious paranormal problem over the phone to her best friend Joy, all the while Joy is suffering from severe hiccups.
      • This exchange:
        • Joy: "You can't give up. You're the morality."
        • Ty: "The mortality morality."
        • Joy: "The banality abnormality."
        • Ty: "Spec-i-a-lity."
        • Joy: "That's a stretch."
