In our If You Like post on Unholy Ghosts and Mind Games, we wondered what would happen if the main characters of Stacia Kane and Carolyn Crane’s novels threw down. The resulting Twitter battle between the two fantastic authors had me giggling. It went a little something like this:
@StaciaKane: Oh, please. Chess could kick Justine’s ass. All she’d have to do is sneeze/talk about diseases.
@StaciaKane: ask why that spot on Justine’s head is swelling like that…gee, is she okay? Maybe she should sit down…
@StaciaKane: Chess and I are ready anytime. How do you think Packard will do vs. Terrible, hmm? Heh heh heh.
@CarolynCrane: OMG, what is this madness? LOL Justine will fill Chess and Terrible with terror!
@StaciaKane: Nonsense. They’ll beat her up before she has the chance.
@CarolynCrane: Sorry, missy, Packard will know what they’d do before they do it, and he will so toy with them!
@CarolynCrane: MY characters fight with their minds; @StaciaKane’s chars would try to beat them up bc they can’t handle the truth!
@StaciaKane: No, my characters would beat them up because they’re in the way. #hellsyeah
@CarolynCrane: Packard would use the power of his insights to make Chess & Terrible knit him and Justine matching scarves! #takethat!
@StaciaKane: All the better for C & T to strangle J & P with…
So after our giggle high wore off, we got thinking. Which of your favorite characters would you like to see in a showdown?
