Madison Mackenzie

"Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire."

{George Bernard Shaw}


"Your body is your own, but my concern for it is similar to not wanting a vandal to ruin the Mona Lisa."
- Jago (to Madison)


"I was told I had an overabundance of original sin. "
- Susan Sarandon

"I was taught it is sin if…well. If what should come with marriages comes without. But…what if…it was not your choice? Do you think it still counts?"

"I don't think it's a sin if what happened to you was unasked for and unwarranted, but I'm no priest. Hell, I don't think it's a sin in the first place even if you -want- it. I guess that's why religion and me just don't mesh together. Though I do find it odd you're asking these questions of a woman who takes off her clothes for strange men for a living."

"Not everyone who knows the rules follow them. I figured it would be at least worth asking. I just sometimes wonder…if all of it is as it is in scripture. If so…where will I end up when I die?"

"That crap they write about in the holy books is there to control people. It's all about control, always has been. You can't condemn yourself for doing what had to be done to survive. Wouldn't your God want you to live to spread his word to others, if nothing else? Isn't his love supposed to be unconditional or some shit? Think about all the people who would be condemned to hell and then think about all the people that would be sent up to heaven by those standards. Heaven's gonna be a really vacant place, dear, and hell's going to have the best party ever."
- Yasmira and Madison

"People always ask me, did I ever learn anything when I was a stripper? Yeah, I did. One man plus two beers equals 20 dollars."
- Anna Nicole Smith

"You are also a woman who shows strangers her privates."

"Well, when they see my show often enough, they're not really strangers anymore, are they?"
- Fred and Madison

"You're up really late, although I have no room on this either. But after Afghanistan I've been a bit of an insomniac, the whole sleeping and waking up screaming covered in sweat isn't so appealing."

"Sounds like some of my worse benders - waking up screaming and covered in sweat. I guess it happens to everyone once in awhile regardless of where in the world you're at."
- Bob and Madison

"Now don't go confusing yourself between love and lust. I know a lot about the latter, though the other always eludes me. I start to wonder if maybe it's not just a prettier word used for lust. When you see enough married men, who claim to love their wives, visit the places I work and ogle the women you really can't help but ask these questions of yourself."
- Madison (to Yasmira)

"The flask? A slight gift. Proverbs 27:5 is on it, yes? He who tends to a fig tree shall eat its fruit, and he who tends to his master shall be rewarded."

"Since you were tending to me, where does that put us?"
- Markus and Madison

Rollins handgun lowers as his jaw drops at the sight of the woman before him. He seems unable to recover, even not managing to gather the willpower to actually lift the handgun in his grasp. His eyes shift from Markus to Madison, scanning her from top to bottom. "I know you're coming to my place to be protected, but God damn, I would pay seventy-five percent of my weekly check just to keep you in eyesight. You're so good to me, Markus." The Ghoul remarks, grinning wider.

"Shh," Markus says softly to Rollins, before his eyes look back to Madison. He motions towards the dress as if to communicate, 'Put it back on.' His eyes however glance up to her face once more, his eyes locking towards her. An eyebrow is arched as he leans back into his chair, bringing a hand up to tap a finger against his chin. "This is one reason why I wish to keep you around, Madison," he refers in an off-hand remark as his eyes glance back to Rollins. "Someone should be watching the door but they're watching something else instead."
- Rollins and Markus

"This woman is strong, in both mind and body…she's complex, beautiful, and intelligent. Although she adopts a demeanor that would sometimes allow people to think otherwise, if it benefits her. She views this world, and many of it's inhabitants as objects to be manipulated to her own ends, as I do."

"I don't know what you're talking about. I'm here for the money and the exercise, of course."

"Of course you are. I'm sure the feeling of power you get doesn't have anything to do with it. Only morally bankrupt businessmen such as myself get off on power, right?"
- Ceasar and Madison

"Like two predatory cats, but it takes one to know one. You know what I find rather piquant about you, dear? It is worn on our sleeves that there is something hidden, something known or assumed underneath our dance. I wonder, how long are you content to dance?"

"I wouldn't know what to do if I weren't dancing, angel. Maybe I'd drown like a shark that suddenly stopped swimming. I -am- the dance, the uninhibited freedom of it, the raw… sexuality of it. I'm afraid to know what would happen if it all stopped."
- Sybil and Madison


"Its a favor to the entire world that you and modesty have never met."
- Jago (to Madison)

"I've never been one much for reading," she finally states before turning around to face her hostess with a hip jutting out to one side. "It was never a lucrative enough venture for me." - Madison (<3 Skyborn)
