"None of us asked for this, Lois. I could have been a lawyer. But I wanted something more. I wanted to entertain. I got way more than I bargained for, though. I thought I had to be one or the other. I gave it that power. I made some bad decisions. I lost myself. I let myself be the label. The mutant. The has-been. The joke. But the greatest realization I made in all of this is that it doesn't matter how everyone sees me. I'm not just a mutant. Or a singer. Or any one thing... All of this is me. ... Lois, the only thing we have in common...is a bloody nose." --Alison Blaire (Earth-616)

"But sometimes even those surrounded in light manage to find the darkness. I guess the pressure of double lives got to me; my second album flopped, and started spending too much, drinking too much." — ducktape
"Among the X-men, I am not the reject drug addict pop star. I'm not a freak. I'm just a girl who likes doing girly things like shopping and rollerskating and karaoke and can happen to manipulate sound into project light rays. No Big." — ducktape
