I’ve been coming on a little strong lately and today I’m gonna kill all the Valentine’s Day vibes… by pushing some fictional characters off a cliff. Because, why not? 😉
Thank you so much to the amazing Beth– who mixes up memes, reviews, discussions and awesome features like reading around the world- so worth checking out!
And thank you to the lovely Kat– who not only talks a ton about books and writing, but is also the QUEEN of TV- and really knows her stuff about all the shows you should be watching!
Anyhoo- I was tagged in both the cliff/kill version, but am going with the cliff title today 😉
I decided to use Beth’s rules:
- Put names of characters, written on separate pieces of papers, in an empty jar or a pen holder.
- Shake the jar.
- Pull out three pieces of paper in each round and tell us which character you would kiss, marry, or cliff!
And Kat did 10 rounds so that’s how many I’m doing
Round 1: Voldemort, Celaena Sardothian, Dracula
Huh, straight out the gate with the difficult questions.
Kiss: I don’t think it’d be too terrible kissing Celaena
Marry: a little part of me has always fancied being a bride of Dracula
Cliff: Voldy’s obviously got to die
Round 2: Elizabeth Bennet, Smaug, Ramsay Bolton
Okay, I’m gonna be tactical with this one. Because somehow I don’t think kissing Ramsay or Smaug would work out well for me (either I’d get a knife to the gut or burnt to a crisp).
Kiss: I reckon I wouldn’t die kissing Elizabeth
Marry: and I’d be a wealthy lady if I married Smaug (provided he didn’t eat me)
Cliff: Ramsay. Easy.
Round 3: Edward Cullen, Renesmee, Mark Watney
I can’t kill a baby!! (even a freaky CGI one) So I guess…
Kiss: Renesmee (on the forehead)
Marry: Mark Watney (no hardship there)
Cliff: Edward Cullen (and no loss)
Actually this has all worked out pretty well.
Round 4: Darkling, Uhtred of Bebbanburg, Walder Frey
Kiss: THE DARKLING!!!
Cliff: WALDER FREY!!!!!!
(I got a little overexcited for that one)
Round 5: Atticus Finch, The Librarian, Vetinari
Ermm I should have thought more carefully about putting the Librarian on this list, cos I can’t kiss or marry a character who is basically me?!
Kiss: I’ll negotiate a kiss out of Vetinari… somehow.
Marry: Atticus is definitely marriage material
Cliff: In a very dark turn of events I guess I’ll have to throw myself off a cliff rather than kill characters I actually like (yeah, I’m focusing on the self-sacrificing element rather than at all the ways logic fails here)
Round 6: Kaz Brekker, Gollum, Dolores Umbridge
Kiss: ugh… at least kissing Umbridge will be hygienic.
Marry: I’m definitely marrying Kaz.
Cliff: Gollum can go off a cliff… into mount doom.
Round 7: Gandalf, Peter Pan, Dorian Gray
Kiss: a shallow part of me would like to kiss Dorian Gray, but I’ll make the excuse that it’s so I don’t end up molesting a child.
Marry: Gandalf- I mean, he’s old, but ditto that he’s not a child.
Cliff: so I guess I’m very kindly pushing Peter Pan off a cliff (he can fly, he can fly, he can fly, as he’s so fond of telling us)
Round 8: Baz, Harry Potter, William Herondale
Damn, hard! It’s actually worse when I like them all.
Kiss: I think I’d better borrow Baz from Simon for a quick kiss (at least I’d enjoy it)
Marry: Will- and there won’t be any love triangle with Jem for me!
Cliff: annnd that just leaves Harry to get pushed off a cliff. I think Harry often gets the short end of the stick in my tags- oh well my advice to him is: “try accio broomstick… if you can” 😉
Round 9: Ebenezer Scrooge, Aslan, Richard III
Kiss: Hmm I think Ebenezer isn’t the worst, so I’d give him a peck (maybe it’d cheer him up before all the ghosts have to intervene).
Marry: obviously Aslan- I’d basically be married to god- no dice.
Cliff: Richard III- he deserves it.
Round 10: America Singer, Katniss Everdeen, Bilbo Baggins
Kiss: Katniss- she’d put up too much of a fight for the cliff
Marry: I feel like I’d be pretty happily married to Bilbo (a cosy hobbit hole, smoking *ahem* leaf, and over eating… yeah I could get on board with that).
Cliff: America Singer- quite happily- she’s such an irritating character.
Okay, on that remorseless note, I tag:
So that went in surreal directions- what do you think of my answers? Let me know in the comments!
