Now because I love worship would lick the ground Adrian Ivashkov walks on here are some quotes and reasons to vote!


"Being charming is my hobby"

 "Besides, when not hard at work with this research, I'm actually conducting a side experiment on how cigarettes and gin increase charisma. As you might guess, the results are looking very promising."



 I mean, it's not impossible that a car full of scantily
clad sorority girls might break down outside and need my help."





"You look too pretty to be useful." "Truer words were never spoken."

"I can pick a lock. How do you think I got into my parents' liquor cabinet in middle school?"

 

"I know how devastated you must be to miss me, but leave a message, and I'll try to ease your agony" 

 "You don't have to keep up with the hard-to-get thing. You already got me."



 "You've asked me out tons of times."
"Not really. I've made inappropriate suggestions and frequently pushed for nudity. But I've never asked you out on a real date."

♥

"Takes a lot of tries before you hit perfection." He paused to reconsider that. "Well, except for my parents. They got it on the first try."



 "None of you appreciate me. Why is it so hard to believe that
I could make a real contribution in these dark times?"


"They’re waiting for you. Go on in. If.You.Dare.” He poked Keith’s shoulder and gave a "Muhahaha” kind of monster laugh.



"You ordered a martini before a job interview."
"It's a bar, Sage. I figured they'd be cool with it."


"Yeah? Can you draw a skeleton riding a motorcycle with flames coming out of it? And I want a pirate hat on the skeleton. And a parrot on his shoulder. A skeleton parrot. Or maybe a ninja skeleton parrot? No, that would be overkill. But it'd be cool if the biker skeleton could be shooting some ninja throwing stars. That are on fire."


♥

"My God, Sage. Your eyes. How have I never noticed them?"
That uncomfortable feeling was spreading over me again. "What about them?"
"The color," he breathed. "When you stand in the light. They're amazing... like molten gold. I could paint those..." He reached toward me but then pulled back. "They're beautiful. You're beautiful."



“He'd written me up a proposal of why dating him was a sound decision. It had included things like "I'll give up cigarettes unless I really, really need one" and "I'll unleash romantic surprises every week, such as: an impromptu picnic, roses, or a trip to Paris—but not actually any of those things because now they're not surprises.”

"I need you,ʺ said Lissa.
ʺI hear that from women a lot,ʺ said Adrian.

♥

"They’re waiting for you. Go on in.” Adrian leaned close to Keith’s ear and spoke in an ominous voice. “If.You.Dare.” He poked Keith’s shoulder and gave a "Muhahaha” kind of monster laugh."

♥

Adrian gave me a look that said I was wasting his time. "Because Jet sounds badass." 

 "I just rely on natural talent," said Adrian, strolling up to the start of the Dragon's Lair. "When you have such a wealth of it to draw from, the danger comes from having too much."

♥
 "I like you being the sinner you are."

 "Besides, when not hard at work with this research, I'm actually conducting a side experiment on
how cigarettes and gin increase charisma. As you might guess, the results are looking very promising."
 "I'm like a fine wine. I get better with age. The best is yet to come."

 "Slushes. Do you know how much I love those? Cherry, especially." 
 
 "In fact I was fairly certain there was no one in the entire world quite like Adrian Ivashkov."


Thanks Lynn K @ The Whimsical Procrastinator for this awesome button!

So in summary:
 Adrian will risk his life, give you his money, do anything for his friends when they need him
 He is uber sweet and romantic
Has the swooniest compliments 
HILARIOUS
Honest
