My Kingdom for a MEME

I'm not allowed to do any more work on the "Golden Vampires" manuscript until my "built-in editor" (David) finishes critiquing it.  To keep myself from going crazy from the desperate need to write, I finished this completely pointless YA WIP MEME:


(Young Adult "Work in Progress" Meme)

Instruction: Use code names for all of the characters to help convey a little bit of their personality.

Number of shirtless scenes:

Male 10

Female 10

Number of no pants scenes:


Strangest quote out of context:

"The undead have never gotten into your crypt before."

Most embarrassing thing a character says:

"Don't flatter yourself that he'll even look your way," Mama chided. "You're too young for a grown-up."

List of taboos broken and/or sins committed:

Lewd thoughts in a church; teenager making a pass at a guy hundreds of years older than her; zombie smut; sexist bastard who seduces teenage girls; murder; rape; drinking; smoking; buff nekkidness; violent battle in which someone is shot; abduction; telepathic rape; slavery; one teddy bear with its eye ripped off.

Sneakiest homage:

"I'm so, so sorry." (Doctor Who reference.)

Weirdest creature, location or character:

A teenage boy who keeps acting like a cat.

States you think your book will be banned in:

All of them. (Except for TX, where it will be used as target practice.)

Amount of profanity, on a scale of 1 to Yikes!:

Yikes -- in three languages.

Number of tragically dead or conveniently missing parental figures:


Number of Evil Cheerleaders, Evil Blondes, and/or Evil Queen Bees:


List all the races, nationalities, and species of your book's core characters:

An abundance of W.A.S.P.s



Indian-American (Hindu)

Native-American (Huichol)





Quote one sentence only from a cliffhanger in your manuscript (a chapter ending, for example):

As he leaned in to answer my question with his hot, open mouth, a distant scream tore through my perfect moment, ripping from my grasp the only hope I had of tasting the kiss of a lifetime.
