Welcome to Cuddlebuggery’s Young Adult, All-Female, Paranormal Character Death Match!
It will probably look a lot like this:
And hopefully some of this:
You know, without that pesky rescuing thing.
But here’s the thing. We need your help to pick our contestants!
- Characters must be female and the main protagonist of their book.
- They must be exclusively from the Young Adult Paranormal genre.
- They must be from a book that either Kat or Stephanie have read for the purposes of getting characterization as close as possible. All the possibilities of characters provided for polling meet this requirement.
- Characters will be from their first book incarnations and can only include character growth, abilities and personality traits achieved within the first novel of their series.
- The winner will be determined by a mixture of chance (dice throwing) and stats/abilities. Ie. A character who rolls very highly but with low abilities might, somehow, defeat a character who rolls a very low score but has high stats.
- There will be three rounds and then the grand championship which will include a surprise setting.

If you notice, we have 18 contenders – but we only need twelve. That’s where YOU come in!
Vote for the characters you MOST want to see in a death match!
You can vote for any twelve characters:
I put Bethany as one of my votes in hope that she’ll lose instantly. That would give me great satisfaction
Hahaha! Secretly (or perhaps not much of a secret) I’m hoping Bella and her reincarnation, Nora make it in. Lol.
Obviously I’m slacking in the YA PNR dept. because I haven’t read half of these. Some because I’m avoiding them like the plague, but others, I’ve never heard of. Unearthly? Ashline? Hmm…
Looking forward to the resulting battles! 🙂

You haven’t heard of Unearthly?! I love that series! You should check it out someday soon! 🙂
Voted Rose, Clary and Ashline because they’re the only girls I know on that list who can kick some serious butt…and have spines.
Well, sometimes she has a spine…and everyone else I know on that list are all really that much wussier.
No judgment here. Except for all the judgment.
I think you might judging me.

Reblog if you’re in one of these fandoms.
I voted for Vivian and a couple of shitty heroines because I would love to see her rip their throats out.
Cyna recently posted…059 – She Smells the Dead by EJ Stevens
I voted for Bella so I can watch her die.
Make it bloody.
Clara has to win – she is awesome. Not to be confused with her opposite Clary.
What about Katsa from Graceling? She’d totally kick ass! Oh wait, you’re trying to narrow it down aren’t you. 🙂
I think we didn’t include her mainly because Graceling is more Fantasy than Paranormal Romance. But we do plan on doing another Character Death Match later that would include Dystopian and Fantasy heroines! I’d love to see Katsa kick some ass. 😉
