So I don’t normally blog this much in one week, but my friend Ranee’ S. Clark is doing a really fun blog countdown to V-Day, and yesterday she featured me! I got to share two of my favorite romantic scenes from literary sources – either from a book I’ve read, a movie based on a book, or a scene from any of my own books. The funny part is, I don’t consider myself a romance writer, but I did have something to share, and it wasn’t the kiss scene from Cobalt that I shared here a few days ago! Seems like I’m getting all kinds of mushy lately, but that’s okay. I need to get over all the blushing and squirming whenever I even think of writing something romantic, because there’ll probably be more kissing in Cobalt. I have another dark fantasy idea after this that will probably get a little mushy. And in the third book of the Moongate series, there will definitely be some faces smushing together – in first person narrative no less, instead of secondary characters like in Cobalt – so I’d better get all that blushing over with early!
Check out Ranee’s countdown on her blog, starting with her first post featuring romantic little moi! And have a look below at some of my favorite romantic pairings of all time. Only a couple are book-based though, because I need pictures for my blog, and the movies and TV shows are where that’s at. *Grammar Nazi shudder* And keep reading after the pics, because I have a few more tidbits at the end!
|Really, does this surprise you at all?|
|Ron & Hermione’s romance was very sweet, and long-awaited.|
|The Doctor/Rose. Rip-your-heart-out, tear-inducing bittersweetness!
But their kiss scene was about 30 seconds way too short.
That’s the sound of my impatience in waiting for this movie.
|I like cartoons, all right? And this was a dang good cartoon, so shut up.|
Well, earlier today I was poking about my dashboard and my butt fell off the chair when I realized I’d made it to 99 followers!!1! I said to Lia, “Holy crap, I’m at 99 followers! 99 followers I am at, crappy hole!” And then we both froze and kinda looked at each other, and I mumbled something about totally not intending for it to come out that way, and we never spoke to each other about it again.
But. 99 followers, holy crap! I should do some kind of thingy to push that number over 100, but I have no idea what. So here’s a poll. It’ll expire on V-Day, because I said so.

And that’s about enough nonsense for one post, I think. G’day lovelies!
