Marry, Date or Dump: Katniss, Artemis, and Susan Pevensie


After last week ranking some male archers from literature, I thought it would be interesting to give you the option of three female archers from fiction and mythology. These are three of my favorite characters, and I’m interested to see what arguments you have for marrying, dating, or dumping Katniss Everdeen, Artemis, and Susan Pevensie. I’m still figuring out what I would want to do … maybe marry all of them and live on a commune somewhere? Let me know your choices in the comments!  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: Katniss, Artemis, and Susan Pevensie”

Marry, Date or Dump: The Chronicles of Narnia


Happy Labor Day everyone! I scratched my head trying to come up with a marry, date or dump that was in theme. I’ve always been partial to the union organizer, Samuel Gompers, because he gives me a book every year on Labor Day. What can I say? My family loves giving presents and celebrating fair working conditions.

I couldn’t think of other people to add, so I decided to go magical and give you three men from The Chronicles of Narnia, by C. S. Lewis: Peter Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie, and Prince Caspian. As always, if you are moved to substitute my choices with other characters (Eustace Scrubb perhaps?) then go right ahead. Let me know who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump in the comments section! Also let me know if you have a good Labor Day themed marry, date or dump for next year.  Continue reading “Marry, Date or Dump: The Chronicles of Narnia”
