I was so excited to see that I was tagged to do this by the ladies at Fiction No Chaser. I had every intention of getting this posted sooner….but….kids. I haven’t gotten a chance to sit here and compose coherent thoughts until now.
This post is all about the ships.

This was harder than I thought it would be….
What fictional character from a book would you date and why?
All of them. For the sake of this tag I will pick Marko, from the Saga graphic novel series by Brian K Vaughn. Because DAYUMMMMM can Fiona Staples draw one heck of a man! Yes I know he is a fictional character, but he is so hot! And sweet. He loves so deeply and he’s a great dad, too…. Swoon…
What would your first date with this character look like? What would you do?
Bookshop and cuddle. I’m also down for Netflix and chill. Introvert dating.
What fictional characters would form your book significant other harem?
I want my harem to mesh well and have amazing chemistry, so I’m gonna make this easy on myself and say: you know The Lunar Chronicles? yeah…. that’s my harem now.
What’s your least favorite trope when it comes to book relationships?
Is miscommunication a trope? Because I hate when that happens. I hate when the characters are heart broken, fighting, or avoiding each other for no reason. COME ONE GUYS! Talk it out! Stop jumping to conclusions! You what they say: ‘when you assume….’
What’s your favorite ship?
How do I answer this?! I feel like the ship in The Kiss Quotient is great. It fell into that miscommunication trope I that I hate, but I feel like the respect and comfort that the relationship was built on was just…ugh… perrrrfect! I will take Michael Phan over Christian Grey a hundred times over.
Also, Zuzana and Mik’s adorable relationship kind of steals the show in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. I haven’t read their novella, Night of Cake and Puppets, yet, but I expect great things and swoony feels.
What’s a ship you *hate*?
Let’s go with Ana and Christian in the 50 Shades books. I loved these WHILE I was reading them, but as soon as I finished the series (which I binged while high on pregnancy hormones) and started discussing it, I quickly realized how many problems I had. These two characters used sex as a weapon.
Also- Just like Jess and Teagan… I HAAAAATE Cal and Mare!
What’s a ship you’d like to third wheel with and why?
Simon and Bram (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli)- because they are so freaking adorable! I feel like I would get a giddy contact high off of their cuteness. If I had to third wheel (cue prom weekend memories) it would totally be fun hanging out with these two love birds, I think.
If you could delete one ship from a book, who would it be and why?
That would be from my current read, The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. Vin and Elend do not need to be a thing. I am always all for the romance in just about any story; and I am all for insta-love. But no thanks. Not this time. My gosh the romance adds nothing to the story and it makes the character Vin ANNOYING!!!!
What two characters from different fandoms would you like to see together?
I don’t know, I’ve never really considered this…. hmmmm…..
Alucard Emery (Shades of Magic trilogy) and Jesper Fahey (Six of Crows duology). Not only would this be a GORGEOUS couple. Their playful personalities and hardcore flirtation would be electric!
What ship that ended are you still mourning?
I might break down and sob just thinking about this…. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo DESTROYED me. I’ll leave it at that.
Jacob or Edward?
Ok so… I was Team Edward…. BUT Team Taylor when it came to the actors. If I read the books over now (I won’t) I have a feeling that I might just switch teams.
