Kiss, Kill, Marry

by Michelle Gagnon

Let’s have a little fun today. For a blog tour, I was recently asked to submit a, “Kiss, Kill, Marry” (the YA version of that other game). I decided to stick to literary characters: I’d kiss Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights (a little trite, but tried and true). I’d kill Voldemort (oddly, this was the toughest choice for me-so many villains to choose from!) And I’d marry Jamie from the Outlander series; because who doesn’t love a guy who waits decades for you to return from the future (and who wears a kilt, no less)?

I’d love to hear all of your choices. Feel free to draw upon any and all literary characters for your lucky winners/victims, and have fun with it!

  1. Why yes, I have insomnia. Why do you ask?

    I would kiss Dirk Pitt from the Clive Barker series. Many times.

    I would kill Pennywise the Clown (need I say more).

    I would marry Gale from Hunger Games (hey, age doesn’t matter, is a game!)


  2. SO glad Pennywise is dead already.

    I would kiss Archie from the Nero Wolfe series. I’m a sucker for a smart ass.

    I would kill the guy who bought Black Beauty and then abused the poor horse. I hold grudges for a long, long, time.

    I would marry Atticus Finch. Don’t have to explain that at all, I would think.

  3. Can guys play, too?

    Kiss: Alice Morgan from “Luther.”

    Kill: Moriarty from “Sherlock.”

    Marry: Claire Matthews from “The Following.”

  4. Kiss: George Clooney circa ER
    Kill: Dick Cheney
    Marry: Amanda already took Gregory Peck as Atticus but I can still have him as Joe Bradley in “Roman Holiday.”

  5. Cool game, Michelle!

    Kiss: Vampire Matthew Clairmont from A Discovery of Witches

    Kill: The guy who ran Matthew Crawley off the road in the last episode of Downton Abbey

    Marry: Tony Stark, Iron Man, cause how cool would that be?

  6. Oh, Atticus is a great choice for a husband. I
    m not entirely sure Tony Stark will be, but maybe he just needs the right woman.

    And to clarify, yes, this challenge is for anyone who wants to join in, after all there are plenty of literary characters out there to choose from…

  7. Love this game. On my blog, we call it Marry, Date, or Dump, and every author interview ends with a round. I’ve never gotten to choose from ALL THE BOOKS EVER before, though. This is a little overwhelming. I’m sure as soon as I write my answer, I’ll think of someone who would have been better.
    But I’ll go with:
    Kiss: I’m going to go ahead and admit (this is a safe place, right?) to my closet love for the occasional paranormal romance, and say it would probably be a vampire (but a good one) because they seem like they’d have a lot of good kissing experience and would probably not be the marrying type, amiright?
    Kill: “Duke” from Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love
    Marry: Gilbert Blythe from Lucy Maude Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables
    Wow, I’ve shocked even myself at my own eclecticness. Eclecticity?

  8. I’d want to kill off Darken Rahl in Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series but the hero has already done so. As for who I’d like to kiss–in literature–I’d pick the heroes in my romance novels, probably the spaceship captain in the very first one. Although…I do like Paz in Warrior Rogue.

  9. Kiss: John Sandford’s Lucas Davenport
    Marry: Robert Crais’ s Elvis Cole
    Kill: Hannibal Lecter (although Cheney scares me more)
    Bed: Elmore Leonard’s Raylan Givens (Justified)
