Follow Friday - Fictional Fight

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win? 
I'm not a very violent person. Watching fights makes me cringe. So I'm apt to choose characters that I don't actually care that much for and then choose someone who can beat them up.

My first thought was: Who do I really want to see beat up?
So I scanned through the books that I've read this year.  There are some main characters that I really didn't like.  But being obnoxious does not really merit a beatdown.  The first character that deserves to be smacked around is Kim from The Boyfriend List (review here).  Then I remember that she did apologize, sort of. Then it dawned on me.  I know what fight I want to see! Jackson Clark (also from The Boyfriend List) and whoever can kick his ass.

Because Jackson treated Ruby like crap.  Unfortunately Ruby doesn't have an older brother, and her new main squeeze would absolutely lose that fight.  So we need an expert.

In comes Ismae from Grave Mercy (review here).  She hates men more than almost any heroine I've met (sort of) and seems like the type to do some justice for woman kind. All I'd have to explain is that Jackson mistreated Ruby and she'd flashback to her own mistreatment.  I don't actually want her to kill Jackson, and being an assassin that might be a difficult request.  But I believe that Ismae can dole out some justice on the heart-breaking, cheating, bad-boyfriend that is Jackson Clark.

Hopping through. I haven't read The Boyfriend List but Ismae would definitely bring about justice.

Hopping through also. I haven't read Grave Mercy, but that sounds like I need to add it to my ever growing list!

Hahahaha, OMG Cassie this is AWESOME. I would love to see Jackson get handed a little justice from Ismae. And I love your whole rationale for choosing these characters.

P.S. After she's done with Jackson can she like...glare menacingly at Kim or something?

Jennifer said...

I love the twist on the question! Jackson sounds like he needs Ismae to tell him what's what. Great answer!

I am not familiar with any of those characters but Jackson sounds like he deserves a beat down.

Thanks for stopping by.

Loved your answer! :D
I haven't read The Boyfriend List, but I'm sure that Ismae could teach that boy a lesson.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love how you approached this. Despise a character and proceed to find another who can kick the crap out of him. Great plan. Wish I'd thought of it!!!

I read The Boyfriend List so long ago, but I do remember some of Ruby's jerky ex-boyfriends.

Interesting, I quite liked the boyfriend list but she was a bit slutty I think or is it just me? But she did apolgise in the end :)
