Kiss, Marry, Kill – Marvel Edition

In honor of the upcoming release of Avengers: Endgame, I am breaking with tradition and am doing a Kiss, Marry, Kill tag outside of Valentine’s Day. Just in case, you don’t know what this tag includes, it’s about pitting three people against each other and me having to decide who, in this specific scenario, I would rather kiss, marry or kill.

This specific edition is based on Swetlana @The Caffeinated Bookworm Life‘s post! (She did a Fuck, Marry, Kill, but whatever …) We first bonded over our mutual love for Sebastian Stan, so when she did a Kiss, Marry, Kill for the actors and actresses of the Marvel franchise, I was all in (especially since I didn’t 100% agree with her choices). I hope this will be fun for everyone! Here we go:

Round 1: Danai Gurira, Brie Larson, Sebastian Stan

Kiss: Brie Larson – *starts singing* Hello again, friend of a friend, I knew you when our common goal was waiting for the world to end … I thought she was badass since Scott Pilgram vs. the world.
Marry: Sebastian Stan – I can’t get rid of the dream I once had for two consecutive weeks where I dreamt we worked together and then also started dating. I practically had a second life with him.
Kill: Danai Gurira – I have no reason for this. I really like Danai and would not have killed anyone this round if it had been an option.

Round 2: Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans

Kiss: Anthony Mackie – I have no particular reasoning for this.
Marry: Chris Evans – Okay, the man seems like he has Peter Pan syndrome and I have a Wendy syndrome. We’d be a good fit. Also, he has a dog and that’s a plus in my heart any day.
Kill: Jeremy Renner – I also have no particular reasoning for this either, I am even a little sad.

Round 3: Gwyneth Paltrow, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana

Kiss: Bradley Cooper – A Star Is Born has elevated him in my eyes again.
Marry: Zoe Saldana – Zoe is brilliant and gorgeous and why not?
Kill: Gwyneth Paltrow – I just don’t really care for her?

Round 4: Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd, Letitia Wright

Kiss: Letitia Wright – *shrugs* that’s just the way it is.
Marry: Paul Rudd – He seems like an honest, fun sweetheart and I have a type. That’s it. Sweet people are awesome.
Kill: Robert Downey Jr. – I just don’t think I could handle him in his full glory!??!?!

Round 5: Jake Gyllenhaal, Jude Law, Chris Hemsworth

Kiss: Jude Law – There’s a reason Dumbledore got hot the second he was played by Jude Law.
Marry: Chris Hemsworth – I would love to be with someone who talks about me with the love and affection Chris Hemsworth displays when he talks about his wife. So, I’d want to be his wife. (sound logic!)
Kill: Jake Gyllenhaal – I am sure he is a cool guy too? He just was left at the end …

Round 6: Tom Hiddleston, Winston Duke, Mark Ruffalo

Kiss: Winston Duke – what was it? M’Baku can blow m’back out?
Marry: Mark Ruffalo – Mark once stopped in his car to ask the sister of a friend, who was crying on the street, if she was alright and/or needed help. He is a truly good person and who wouldn’t want to marry someone like him!?
Kill: Tom Hiddleston – How did I get here? I adore Tom but the whole TSwift stunt was a misstep.

Round 7: Michael B. Jordan, Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Pratt

Kiss: Michael B. Jordan – What a man!
Marry: Elizabeth Olsen – I adore that woman! She is forever one of the people I’d like to meet and befriend and spend time with.
Kill: Chris Pratt – He already is dating someone named Kat who has a connection to Austria. Let’s not meddle with that since she’s obviously not me.

Round 8: Tessa Thompson, Tom Holland, Evangeline Lilly

Kiss: Tom Holland – He always seems so young, but he isn’t though? Right?
Marry: Tessa Thompson – Tessa is so cool and amazing and an icon. I am into it.
Kill: Evangeline Lilly – I have no real connection to her?

Round 9: Chadwick Boseman, Hayley Atwell, Benedict Cumberbatch

Kiss: Hayley Atwell – surprisingly, I don’t really care much for this round.
Marry: Chadwick Boseman – Chadwick is cool, but he seems so tired of his Black Panther fame.
Kill: Benedict Cumberbatch – I mean, he isn’t Sherlock in real life, so I don’t know where to put him.

Round 10: Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Karen Gillan

Kiss: Lupita Nyong’o – Lupita is glorious like the sun and she personally made sure to be included in the film adaptation of Trevor Noah’s “Born a Crime” and I admire that.
Marry: Karen Gillan – Karen is one of my favourite people ever since she was Amy Pond on Doctor Who and I also like her as Nebula and she did an amazing job with her directorial debut, even if it furthered a depressive spiral. I did a post on movies she is in, so yeah, I’d marry her!
Kill: Scarlett Johansson – I realise she lead the way for female heroes within the Marvel universe, but for some reason I don’t particularly like her.


Okay, it was a little weirder than I thought it would be to do this for the actors/actresses rather than their characters, but what do you think? Can you relate to my choices or do you think I am insane? Both? Neither? Let’s chat!

Kiss, Marry, Kill: TV Edition

You all know, we’ve done this before! There was the book edition, the TV & book edition and this beautiful Valentine’s Day we are focusing on TV alone. I was even too lazy to make a new graphic, but that’s the beauty of this tag and this tradition … it still doesn’t get old. (At least I hope so!?!?!)

As always, this is also your yearly reminder that Valentine’s Day should not make you feel bad about yourself if you are single. I’ve never spent that day with anyone in particular and I am just fine! This day is just as much as about self love, if you choose it to be, so – be a little kinder to that face in the mirror today!

**all names and shows were randomly drawn**

ROUND 1

Kiss: Sutton (The Bold Type) – I don’t really have an explanation for this? Out of these three characters I feel the most neutral about Sutton??

Marry: Gert (Marvel’s Runaways) – Everyone who knows me, knows that I love Gert. I think marriage could be kind of exhausting with her, but she is fierce and not to be messed with and doing the best she can in a tough spot and I love her for that.

Kill: Manfred (Midnight, Texas) – Given how often he has been possessed by ghosts now … maybe he should just join them?

ROUND 2

Kiss: Marcy (Travelers) – Marcy is so pretty and cool, but also from the future with a very high intellect and I am not sure how I’d feel being with her for longer? So a kiss it is.

Marry: Michael (Roswell, New Mexico) – Michael is a broken boy, but I love him. He brings out the silly “I want to save THIS particular bad boy and love him forevermore”-feels in me.

Kill: Otis (Sex Education) – I am so sorry! Otis is like a precious bean, but he’s also so young and I can’t imagine dating him either??

ROUND 3

Kiss: Nick (The Handmaid’s Tale) – he is one handsome devil. Nick isn’t a bad man, but he is also not a good one. I credit that to the world he lives in, but I’d rather just have a brief encounter with him.

Marry: Jules (Imposters) – that woman has been through some heartbreak, but I am sure I could be the stable environment she needs. I am super trustworthy. Also, I always wanted to make a con artist fall in love with me. It’s a whole thing.

Kill: Elsa (Plan Coeur) – I never know how to explain the “kill” decisions, because Elsa is such an awkward mess that I super relate to her, but together we’d be terrible.

ROUND 4

Kiss: Matthew (A Discovery of Witches) – I am sort of over vampires, but … Matthew intrigues me. I’d like to know what a kiss feels like.

Marry: Alan (Russian Doll) – he was one of my favourite parts of the brilliance that was Russian Doll. He has his issues, just like everyone else (maybe a couple more), but he has a golden heart. I couldn’t imagine anyone nicer by my side.

Kill: Cameron (Halt & Catch Fire) – She is badass, but she also always believes she is right, holds a grudge forever … wow, dang … that all sounded way too familiar to myself. But my issue is that she lets her friends down and believes she is superior to them.

ROUND 5

Kiss: Eleanor (The Good Place) – Girl is a snack, as she constantly likes to point out herself!

Marry: Fallon (Dynasty) – would I like to have the comfort and security that comes with being a Carrington? Heck, yeah! I just don’t want all the drama and backstabbing.

Kill: Lisa (Friends from College) – Lisa is in enough love drama without me. I actually really like her on the show, unlike a lot of other viewers apparently, but out of the three here, she just wouldn’t be my top pick.

ROUND 6

Kiss: Tandy (Cloak and Dagger) – Tandy is a mess, but a cute one?

Marry: Buck (9-1-1) – not gonna lie, I am just majorly crushing on this dude. The way he was into Abby, I mean, that’s a girl’s dream! I want that for myself!!

Kill: Joe (You) – Easiest choice ever!!! One less creep out and about.

ROUND 7

Kiss: Amanda (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) – she’s cool. I’ve got nothing more.

Marry: Wynonna (Wynonna Earp) – She’s even cooler. I have even less to say.

Kill: David (Schitt’s Creek) – I AM SO SORRY! I adore David, but he’s a lot. Like a lot a lot.

ROUND 8

Kiss: Hope (Legacies) – I didn’t always like Hope, but she has grown on me. And she does have vibes with Josie, so I think she’d kiss a girl.

Marry: Schneider (One Day at a Time) – He’s such a lovable dork. I think him being in a loving environment, surrounded by family, that would really do him good. Just look at how he blossoms when he is with the fam on the show.

Kill: Alyssa (The End of the F***ing World) – Nah, I just couldn’t see myself with her.

ROUND 9

Kiss: Jasper (The Royals) – my beloved bodyguardian angel. I’d steal a kiss, but he’ll be forever with Len in my mind.

Marry: Dylan (Tidelands) – I just … uhm … think he’s hot? And he’s half siren! That’s my jam.

Kill: Carmen (Siempre Bruja) – I keep wanting to apologize to the characters, even though someone always has to die …

ROUND 10

Kiss: Tommy (Peaky Blinders) – that man is in pieces and I would never dare suggest I could somehow make him whole again.

Marry: Sansa (Game of Thrones) – my one and only true Queen!

Kill: Star (Star) – I envy her for her voice and tenacity, but that girl is so selfish and mean and sometimes straight violent.


So, that concludes this year’s Kiss, Marry, Kill. I know my taste in shows is pretty out there, so I hope there weren’t too many shows that no one knows in the mix. Feel free to ask about any you want to know more about though! As always, I’d love to chat! What do you think of my choices?

Kiss, Marry, Kill – TV & Book Edition

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day, whether you are with a sweetheart or by yourself like me. This just makes it the perfect occasion for me to do a tag for imaginary relationships, wouldn’t you agree?

I have done the Kiss, Marry, Kill Book Tag before (also on Valentine’s Day … I see a pattern there), but I wanted to switch it up a little. So, instead of doing 10 rounds of books only, I will do 5 TV rounds and 5 book ones. The rules are very simple: you put Goodreads on random to pick the books and then open them at a random page to select a character. For TV shows, I will do a random pool of shows and names and just draw them from a hat or something. Enjoy!

ROUND 1

Kiss: Ella (Lucifer) – she is sooo adorable and enthusiastic. I don’t know what that has to do with kissing her, but I do like her.
Marry: Henry (Once Upon a Time) – he was annoying af as a teen, but grown up Henry is amazing.
Kill: Clary (Shadowhunters) – am I even sorry?

ROUND 2

Kiss: Four (Divergent) – he’s handsome and broody, so sure, why not?
Marry: Mark Watney (The Martian) – if anyone doubted that I would marry Mark in an instant, do you even know me? He is funny, smart and has wicked survival skills. As an astronaut he probably wouldn’t be home that much, but I think he has enough of outter space for now. Also, I am sure I could prep some meals without potatoes for the rest of my life.
Kill: Vassa (Vassa in the Night) – I just didn’t particularly click with her?

ROUND 3

Kiss: Philip (Travelers) – on the show, Philip, Trevor and Marcy are the ones I fancy the most, so I would have kissed any one of those characters if they had come up.
Marry: Elvis (Our Girl) – I wasn’t too particularly happy about this round as a whole. I would marry Elvis though, just because Luke is amazing.
Kill: April (Grey’s Anatomy) – I am so sorry, April!! I did not want to kill you at all!!!

ROUND 4

Kiss: Theo (A Million Worlds With You) – I just love Theo so much, but he is kind of a player. So a kiss suffices.
Marry: Sevro (Red Rising) – that man is so smelly and gross, but I love him? I’d SO marry him!
Kill: Matthias (Six of Crows) – so … uhm … there was a thought process behind this, but I am scared to say it.

ROUND 5

Kiss: Robert (The Royals) – he might be evil, but he is still super handsome and one of my favourite fictional psychos.
Marry: Karen (The Punisher) – I adore Karen! Neither the Punisher nor Daredevil would be the same without her. Enough said.
Kill: Esme (The Gifted) – she’s such a manipulative and mean spirit. Having her around only means trouble, so … you get my drift.

ROUND 6

Kiss: Gansey (Blue Lily, Lily Blue) – Gansey is my least favourite Raven boy … so yeah, but he constantly dies and I don’t want to kill him even more.
Marry: Shahrzad (The Rose & the Dagger) – She’d be the best wife! And the bedtime stories would be epic.
Kill: Carver (Goodbye Days) – I just kind of forgot what his personality was like?

ROUND 7

I just want to say that I hate this round so much. I want to marry them all and this isn’t fair.

Kiss: Amberle (The Shannara Chronicles) – still not over what happened to her.
Marry: Will (Sense8) – I know from firsthand experience that Will is a formidable hugger. That is a great quality in a husband to have, aside from his obvious kindness and all around great character.
Kill: Grace (Peaky Blinders) – The only reason I chose her was because she lied to Tommy in the beginning and that vexed me.

ROUND 8

Kiss: Quentin (The Epic Crush of Genie Lo) – I wonder how it would be to kiss someone much shorter than me?
Marry: Warner (Ignite Me) – Warner is a good guy at heart. I doubt he would ever want to be with anyone other than Juliette, but we are just pretending she doesn’t exist in this scenario.
Kill: Tamlin (A Court of Thorns and Roses) – is he the worst ever? No … but I still don’t want him near me.

ROUND 9

Kiss: Brainiac 5 (Supergirl) – I like him. He brings a fresh and slightly comedic element to the show, even if the looks aren’t really like they used to be in the comics. Nonetheless, I do not like him enough to marry him.
Marry: Takeshi (Altered Carbon) – Honestly, I wasn’t sure which picture to pick, because he wore so many sleeves. But I like him and he seems like such a loyal soul.
Kill: Veronica (Riverdale) – I am over the trash fire that is Riverdale.

ROUND 10

Kiss: Rachel (Words in Deep Blue) – sweet girl, I am down.
Marry: Benvolio (Still Star-Crossed) – can I pretty please have the TV version of him??
Kill: Farley (Glass Sword) – I am just not a huge fan of her. Would I have killed her in another scenario? I am not sure, but in this round she was the least painful to pick.

I am not going to tag anyone specifically, but if you feel like this is something you’d enjoy – YOU ARE HEREBY TAGGED! (and it’s a tag that works for any other day than Valentine’s Day as well) What did you think of my picks?

Kiss, Marry, Kill Book Tag

kmk

It’s Valentine’s Day, or, as I like to call it, Single Appreciation Day. No matter what you are or aren’t celebrating, Cristina @My Tiny Obsessions tagged me for the Kiss, Marry, Kill tag and what better day to do it than today?

So, here’s how I made this work: I did 10 rounds with 3 books each. I put Goodreads on random to pick the books and then opened them at a random page to select a character. If I didn’t know (cue, this means I didn’t remember) the character, I simply did it again. Then I chose who I wanted to kiss, marry or kill (not that I actually “wanted” to do the last at all). Simple as that!

ROUND 1

kmk1

Kiss: Jace (City of Fallen Angels) – he’s handsome, but would I want to date him? Nah … not really. So, a smooch is what I am going to take.
Marry: Carlisle (Eclipse) – he’s kind and a family man, that’s some real marriage material.
Kill: Edmond (How I Live Now) – I like Edmond, but he is kind of broken beyond repair. I think Daisy is literally the only person to fix him, so there’s no way I could help him.

ROUND 2

kmk2

Kiss: Tristran (Stardust) – he’s cute.
Marry: Bellamy (The 100) – I just love him and even though he would probably be more of a wildcard as a husband than Tristran would have been, I like him best out of the bunch.
Kill: Scipio (The Thief Lord) – he’s more like a character from my childhood and … I just can’t see it at all.

ROUND 3

kmk3

Kiss: Freya (Witches of East End) – Freya is the Goddess of love. I have a feeling this is going to be one heck of a kiss.
Marry: Finnick (Catching Fire) – do I need to explain this? He was only one of my most beloved characters of the series!
Kill: Wylan (Six of Crows) – I just don’t feel like Wylan would be into ME. So, this is for his own good, because otherwise I would never ever hurt him.

ROUND 4

kmk4

Kiss: Ronan (Blue Lily, Lily Blue) – a kiss with me is not going to kill him, right? Because I feel like I should have applied the same logic as I did with Wylan here …
Marry: Quentin (The Magicians) – this only works for me if I can have TV Quentin … or at least second book Quentin. Why did I choose him at all?
Kill: Park (Eleanor & Park) – he’s such a cutie, but he’s also sooo young.

ROUND 5

kmk5

Kiss: Frank (Since You’ve Been Gone) – There are so many sweethearts in those books.
Marry: Logan (The Lucky One) – That guy is amazing and he has a dog. I love dogs. He already won me over with that fact alone.
Kill: Snow White (Snow White & the Huntsman) – I just didn’t like her, okay? I didn’t like the entire book very much.

ROUND 6

kmk6

Kiss: Nick (Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist) – I could see the setting right in front of my eyes. Some indie band playing at a bar, us having fun. Sure, why not?
Marry: Sansa (A Clash of Kings) – Sansa is badass and unlike stupid Ramsey, I would know how to treat her right, because she deserves so much better.
Kill: Lily (Firewalker) – That girl is a LOT of work. She’s super stubborn and self-righteous and I am pretty sure we would have clashed.

ROUND 7

kmk7

Kiss: Celia (The Night Circus) – I am having a hard time coming up with explanations here …
Marry: Max (The Book Thief) – he is one of my greatest bookish loves. There was no debate about that one.
Kill: Gideon (Ruby Red) – he’s a douche most of the time?

ROUND 8

kmk8

Kiss: Mori (Lock & Mori) – Mori is really cool, but I couldn’t imagine a relationship with her. She’s so much smarter and more cunning than me.
Marry: John (Dear John) – You can say about Nicholas Sparks what you like, but that man writes some great dudes.
Kill: Vassa (Vassa in the Night) – this decision is 100% based on me not liking the book.

ROUND 9

kmk9

Kiss: August (This Savage Song) – This is the toughest round yet! I want to marry them all? But since that’s not the game, I will kiss August.
Marry: Mark Watney (The Martian) – Mark is funny and smart and has wicked survival skills … I don’t know why that would matter, but I think it’s a good quality.
Kill: Felix (Wolf by Wolf) – of the three, I like him the least, so that was my only option.

ROUND 10

kmk10

Kiss: Lucien (ACOMAF) – I would have wanted to marry him, if he hadn’t been such a freaking coward in that book. I still love him though.
Marry: Julian (Lady Midnight) – If Cristina won’t marry him, I WILL GLADLY DO IT!
Kill: Jane (My Lady Jane) – sorry Jane?

I TAG THEE

So, I had no apparent logic to this. How did you like the tag?
