The Mating Game Bloghop

So, I'm participating in this fun blog hop and have chosen Selene and Micah from Affairs of the Dead as the couple to answer the questions. I had a lot of fun with this because I hadn't really been inside these guy's heads for a while.

What would your character do if the one they wanted was terrified of their feelings and pushed them away?

S: I feel like whoever asked this question crawled into your head and pulled it out, Micah.
M: Selene…seriously…
S: Oh come on, don’t you think this completely hits the mark? You were oh so head over heels in love with me, but instead of telling me you decided to go the route of a first grader and be mean to me. I think that qualifies as you being ‘terrified’ of your feelings and ‘pushing me away.’
M: I was just trying to protect myself.
S: Yes, you went into your shell like a scared little turtle.
M: Would you give it a rest?
S: I love my little turtle!
M: Ugh...

Tells us about a memorable experience you shared together.

S: Are we talking good memories or bad memories here?
M: How about we aim for good?
S: But there are so few of those…
M: Selene!
S: Kidding! I think one of my favorite memories of us was when you kissed me after I got injured and you drove my car home and brought take out.
M: I was thinking of that night too.
S: It was the first time I had ever felt like I was kissing someone who really cared about me and didn't just want me for a moment.
M: I want you forever Selene, you know that.
S: I do.

What is one of the roadblocks standing in the way of you getting together?

M: I’d say the fact that Selene was having an affair with our married boss was something of a roadblock...
S: What about the fact that I’m bound to a cutie college boy ghost?
M: Seriously Selene?
S: Just trying to lighten the mood.
M: You failed.
S: I know. But come on, who doesn’t like a challenge?
M: These are so not the normal kinds of relationship challenges…
S: Normal is boring!

So, how would your characters describe the other person, using only one word at a time?

S: Turtle
M: Exasperating
S: Snail
M: Reckless (Selene, stop naming animals with shells!)
S:  (Fine!) Strong
M: Beautiful
S: Loyal
M: Brave
S: Understanding
M: Powerful

What was the first thing your main characters noticed about each other?

S: That every girl in the office wanted to get in his pants
M: That’s really your answer?
S: No, Micah dear. The first thing I noticed about you was how beautiful your eyes are. They are the weapons you used to draw all the women in the office to you.
M: And the first thing I noticed about you is how absolutely reckless you are.
S: That’s really your answer?
M: Yes.
S: Micah!
M: You’re reckless, but you do whatever it takes to get the job done no matter the consequences to yourself. You are never afraid to take risks and I’ve always admired that about you.
S: You are gonna get so lucky tonight.


  1. Stopping by to say 'hello' to all of the other hop participants ...

    " I feel like whoever asked this question crawled into your head and pulled it out, Micah." I knew I'd like your entry after I read that. :-D Great stuff, loved the snarcasm.

  2. Sounds like this couple has been through some scandals! They're fun together :)

  3. They sound like a great couple! They've obviously been through a lot together.

  4. "bound to a cutie college boy ghost"
    That one sentence made my whole mind go 'Bah-what?'
    I've just got to know more about how they handle that! Sounds like one heck of challenge to me. ^_^
