*Post borrowed from ErisofDiscord*
This was a game/activity that I discovered on Goodreads, and what happens is basically you post a comment with something like this:
Harry Potter or Draco Malfoy?
The next commenter then posts a response saying which one they would pick. You pick Harry Potter (of course!) and then post another question, such as:
Marvel or DC?
And so it goes. I wanted to create this topic, as we used to comment all the time on the Staircase, and that was fun (some REALLY weird sentences our brains thought up!), so here's another game to keep us occupied. :)
So... Marvel or DC?
Yay, I get to answer my question! :D Hmmmmm... Marvel has a lot of good quality superheroes, all of whom I like. However, there isn't one that I love. DC, on the other hand, has Batman, whom I ADORE. I really don't know... I'll go with Marvel, just because they have more quality superheroes, whereas DC only has one superhero that I adore.
Wow. That was difficult.
Bellatrix Lestrange or Voldemort?
This is a tough one, because they both die in the end...lol. Hmmm!
I'll go with Bellatrix Lestrange
Hermione Granger OR Luna Lovegood?
I would have to say Romance, I don't do well with Thrillers.
Novel series: Twilight series or House of Night series?
Geeze two terrible series. Twilight is just ... ugh. House of Night has a Mary Sue for a main character.
I guess Twilight.
pi or pie?
*gives Silent Reader a hug for that answer*
Pie. I intensely dislike math and I love desserts, so that explains everything!
Time Lords or sparkly vampires?
Time Lords! I don't do well with sparkly vampires.
Math or Science?
OOHH...now thats hard...both inspiring young women with good voices, but Adele's is super unique...so Adele.
Carpet or Hardwood Floors?
Hardwood... great for sock footed sliding!!
Tri-atholon or foot race?
Like chocolate or vanilla, this is a very hard choice. But I'm gonna go with cat.
Snape or Slughorn?
Snape! Snape, Snape, Snape, Snape, Snape. I'm a big Snape fan, because he was so interesting. Cried buckets when he died. :(
The TV series "Sherlock" or the Robert Downey Jr. movies?
I also cried when Snape died. Surprised myself with that. But, he turned out really to be the most interesting and perhaps most complex character in the entire series, even more than Dumbledor.
Oops! Sorry. Better scurry out again now, since I don't have an answer to the question. I like Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, myself.
Yay, Jeremy Brett! :D That man is responsible for my love of Sherlock Holmes. He's my favorite Holmes, along with Benedict Cumberbatch's recent portrayal in "Sherlock."
Library. As much as I love Barnes & Noble, my local library has a suprisingly good selection.
Road Trip or Flying ( plane)?
Ares did you mean to say PLANE the way to travel in the sky, instead of PLAIN meaning simple
Haha I agree Catreona, I couldn't choose between reading and writing either! :P
It is a tough one -- but I'm going to go with reading.
Pizza or hamburgers?
Disney! Always Disney, because Disney is timeless.
Pixar or Dreamworks?
Headphones. Ear buds never stay in my ears -- or if they do, they hurt. I must have weird ears.
Cheesecake or key lime pie?
tough since they're kinda the same.
I'd have to say library thing
Bright or dark?
My hair is curly, and I like it like that, so I'll go with curly.
Latin or Greek?
Onion rings! only with burger king zesty sauce though, other wise french fries :P
Subway or Quiznos?
East, although I currently live on the West. :P
England or France?
Beaches for sure screw the mountains and their bugs!
Winter or summer?
Absolutely not. Between those to Sean Connery for sure. But the best was Peers Brawsnen, even though I'm not sure how to spell his name. :P
Since I only have a younger sibling and have always wanted an older one, have to go with older.
Iced tea or lemonade?
All I can see when I watch Pierce Brosnan's Bond is that professor guy from "Mars Attacks." :P
And iced tea all the way!
Mars Attacks or Attack of the Killer Tomatoes?
Pierce Brosnan is the legit Bond! Although I am adjusting to Daniel Craig hes pretty good.
Scooby doo or tom and Jerry?
Tom and Jerry.
I have a theory that Scooby-Doo lowers IQ-( anybody catch that? :D)- along with Spongebob...
>76 ErisofDiscord: ErisofDiscord: Obviously, you're too young to remember Remington Steel. *sigh*
Scooby doo, definitely.
Ben & Jerry's ice cream or fro yo?
UUMMMM.... I believe that the obvious choice would be BEN AND JERRY'S!!!!!!!!!!
Maroon 5 or Goo Goo Dolls?
No, no, I meant, given that the products are both made by Ben & Jerry's, is it ice cream or fro yo?
e-mailing, which I suppose shows my age.
Florida or Hawaii?
#80 no way I love scooby doo!
#84 I think ben & Jerrys is ice cream, and the most amazing ice cream at that. I have no idea what fro-yo is. Although i do suggest watching the documentary on Ben&jerry's thats on netflix- although I hate netflix and no longer use it the movie is awesome!
Cloth all the way. I hate when my legs stick to it or its cold or too hot!
Pizza hut or dominos?
>87 xkrissio3: xkrissio3: B&J make ice cream and fro yo, that is to say frozen yogurt. Both are fabulous. I tend to go for ice cream, but their fro yo is the only one I'll eat, and you'd never know it wasn't ice cream. Just a little lighter, that's all. Simply scrumptious!
LOL at your comment on leather appolstery. I couldn't agree more!
>90 zebrapants: zebrapants: That's an incredibly hard one. I guess Part One
Broomsticks or thestrells? (Hope I spelled that right)
I used to think blue, but a little while ago i switched to green.
Fantasy or science fiction?
Gah, I love both! Fantasy means LOTR and Chronicles of Narnia. Sci-fi means Star Wars and Doctor Who. How do I choose?
I'll go with sci-fi, for now. Just because of my anticipation for the new Doctor Who series! :D
Whispering or shouting?
Whispering. I used to make a fool of myself for shouting too much in public.
peanut-butter or ketchup?
Vegetables, surprisingly. I am notorious for not eating fruit.
Die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain?
Die a hero for sure...
Kettle corn or Carmel corn?
*that one was my sisters idea*
Flats...so much more comfrortable
hand stiching or sewing machine?
Depends on the job. Hand-sewing for smaller projects. Leather gloves or woolen mittens?
I havent read the Silmarillion so I'll go with The Hobbit.
Mac or Windows?
Chess, because it's the ultimate game of strategy.
Batman or Superman animated series?
Wine -- I can't get past the smell of beer. Yech.
Romance or mystery stories?
Tattoos! They are so cool! My parents say that I can get them when I'm 18, because my mom has one. Some people think that tatoos pass the wrong messages, but I just think that it depends on the tattoo and the placement.
Shoes or barefoot for walking outside?
Swans. Peacocks are beautiful as well, but whenever I hear their calls I think it sounds like a woman screaming.
Tea or coffee?
store bought cookies or made from scratch cookies?
from scratch. Ever tried bacon pieces in chocolate chip cookies? DIVINE!
Chocolate-covered bacon strips or pecan-bacon brittle?
Tumblr! I could spend my whole life just going through Tumblr. :) And chocolate covered bacon is REALLY good. I finally gave it a try, and it was yummy.
Famous foods! Fish fingers and custard, or green eggs and ham?
Neither, fish fingers and custard sounds gross, and ham is reallly bad( I am a part time bacon eating vegetarian)..but I guess green eggs and ham!
Lap desk or real desk?
Oy! Fish fingers and custard tastes pretty good! It's sweet and salty.
Jupiter. As an astronomy know-it-all, I can testify that Jupiter is the far more interesting planet to study. Saturn has a lot of rings, and that's it.
Pluto: Planet or Not?
My cousin and I often argue about this. Currently I believe that Pluto IS a planet, but I'm in position to change my mind...
Kirk or Picard?
Apple...but I usually am stuck with orange...
Chocolate chip cookies: Nuts or No Nuts?
So difficult! I'll go with Scottish for now, just because of David Tennant.
Time travel or alternate world travel?
Pina Colada ( virgin if you are under 21) or Shirley Temple?
Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash? OH YEAH, I'M DOING PONIES BABY!
Wow...not seen either, but Rainbow Dash sounds cooler!
Red sause or white sause on your Pasta?
Buffy! I love that show!!!!!
Cell phone or landline? ( sorry that that's lame, but I couldn't think of anything better.)
She was a good writer, truly! It's wonderful that you're named after her, Flan. :)
Ya she was great. I'm actually reading A Good Man Is Hard To Find, and Other stories right now!
Hard cover, just feels better in my hands....but softcover has better prices!
I'll go with a clean shaven nerd. :D
Nail polish or plain nails?
Nail polish *Kate types with her bright orange finger nails*
Water Park or Amusement Park? *went to an amusement park today...I feel sick*
Water park. Don't like roller coasters!
Nail polish: plain or with glitter?
*now types with her purple glittery nails*
Flute or Violin?
Violin. And hooray for purple glittery nails! I've got six fingers painted purple, and the other four painted with clear sparkly stuff. Our nail polishes are syncing!
David Tennant or Robert Pattinson?
By the way, just in case you have no idea what David Tennant looks like...
Chocolate ,once again duhhh
Favorite school year from when u were little...6t Grade or 5th grade?
Fifth. Sixth was horrible and seventh was worse.
Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast?
That gives me a positive reveiw of sixth grade! Now u have me worried.
Puppies. I like dogs more than cats.
Shakespeare: Comedies or Tragedies?
Ze tragedies, of course! Especially the ones where everyone's dead at the end.
The Roaring Twenties or the Victorian Era?
It depends. As far as Literature, the Victorian Era. In most other respects, the Twenties.
Night or Day?
That's a hard one. But, you're always safe with Brownies.
And, staying with brownies: with walnuts or without?
12 am. I'm a night person.
Dumbledore: Richard Harris or Michael Gambon?
Thrill rides. The taller and faster, the better.
YouTube or Facebook?
That's a hard one! Facebook I guess. I have more fun on Facebook anyway.
Army or Navy?
Spring break...my birthday, plus warm spring skiing!
Sports: Volleyball or Soccer?
Rhyming. And it's not just rhyming that I prefer, I think poetry should be in meter. As Robert Frost said:
"Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down."
There, I stepped on my literary soap box for the day.
Would you rather have a Prince Charming or a Dark Knight?
Prince Charming. Dark Knights sound romantic and exciting but would be a royal pain in real life! Bow and arrows or swords?
>215 ErisofDiscord: ErisofDiscord: I agree. I do write free verse, but it nearly always has a cadence, a definite feel of beat. Some poems want to be in free verse, but structured poems, ones with rhyme and metre, are much more satisfying to work on.
Anything rather than Gatorade!
Pompom or tassel?
Waterskiing! I've never done it before, but I would love to try!
One sword or twin blades?
(Personally, I've always favoured twin blades)
While I respect your thinking StarlightLily, I'm going to have to say one sword because it's hard enough holding ONE sword...imagine having to parry and thrust with TWO!!! I don't know...maybe I'm being melodramatic.
Three Musketeers or Milky Way (fun size, obviously)?
Milky Way - preferably Milky Way Dark. Yummmm.
elevator or stairs?
Loki is awesome!!!
Movie attack of the clone wars or revenge of the Sith.
Oh boy. Ask me this question a few years ago, and I would easily chosen Star Wars, but the Star Wars prequels have soured my image of the franchise I once loved. Meanwhile, the new Star Trek movie (which I just got finished watching) has given new life to the Star Trek franchise.
I guess I'll go with Star Trek.
Alien Movie: E.T. or Independence Day?
Definetely Independence Day... when I was little, E.T. always scared the heck out of me with his little "light-bulb finger." I had to hide on the staircase whenever the commercial came on before Shrek.
Peanut butter: chunky or creamy?
Ahh, so hard, I play both, but I love the piano more right now. I have an awesome teacher too!
Tablet or Computer?
Computers. They're so much easier to understand/work with!
Math or English?
English. Usually. Depends on the branch of math, I guess.
Cappuccino or frappaccino? (spelling...)
When I was young, my mom pulled back my hair so I looked like Legolas.
Two worst shows ever. I guess I'd have to pick Dora.
Power rangers or ninja turtles
American Idol i guess more of a project runway type girl!
School or Summer?
Kermit (he's so cute and green)
Here's a Harry Potter one:
Cho or Ginny?
Silk or velvet?
#262 I would have definitely chosen sapphires!
1) My favourite colour is blue.
2) I'm a Ravenclaw. Ravenclaw gems are sapphires.
3) Sapphires are my favourite type of gems! :D
4) Sapphires are gorgeous and beautiful.
5) I ❤ SAPPHIRES!!!
Hmm.. I've never had Indian food so I gotta go with Chinese, even though I only eat sweet nd sour chicken, rice, and FORTUNE COOKIES!
Better place to live: Country or city?
City. I like coffee shops, book stores and BIG libraries. (I grew up in the country so I've experienced both.)
#268 oooh, I'd have to disagree...I love having trails for skiiing on my property...and the smell...aaahhh :D Then again, cities do have some perks, as you so described above. :D Now you get to ask a question, donnao.
My city has a lot of green space and great neighborhoods for walking-- and the "country " is only 10 minutes away! Minimalist decor or shabby chic?
Ah! I believe that both are a type of footwear. I'll go with Converse, though. Converse shoes are cool.
Bracelets or necklaces?
Footware, yes. Bogs are rainboots and Uggs are sheepskin boots from Australia - very warm and cozy.
UMMM... can I say BOTH????????????????????
NO? Amy Weinhouse!
This! Because the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
Dogs OR Cats?
^Huge cat fan, can't you tell? :P
NBC or CBS?
katagirl: I actually had to google those before I knew what you were referring to! But I'd choose Izzie!! Because I love sodas :)
Flowers or Trees?
How about flowering trees? Flowers. Strawberry shortcake or lemon meringue pie?
Black cats because they're fuzzy and pet-able. Although I guess bats are "pet-able" too, maybe?
Dragons or Dinosaurs?
Dragons. All that fire breathing and stuff! Dementors or Ringwraiths?
Ringwraiths. While I like Dementers, they never unsettled me like the Black Riders.
Sauron or Darth Vader?
Sauron. I could never take Darth Vader seriously after watching Mel Brookes' Space Balls. Rick Moranis as "Dark Helmut" cracks me up. Luke Skywalker or Han Solo?
Hmm that's a hard one, donnao. I'l go Cleopatra since she was more recent and I just read a book on her not too long ago.
Smoothies or Icees?
I'm not sure if this was already done, but:
Invisibility or ability to fly?
amen to that donnao
leggings, tights are so uncomfortable!
Football or Basketball?
The Nile. Ancient Egyptian History was my very first passion.
Mexico or Canada?
I don't watch Project Runway unfortunately :( But I'm gonna go with Ven cuz I like the name Elana.
Paper backs or Hardcovers?
Hardcovers - to own. If it's from the library , it doesn't matter.
Blue jays or crows?
French fries! :D :D :D
Eh...Pizza Hut or Dominos?
(Not sure if it's Dominos or Dominoes ^_^')
Seafood chowder, because I think I know what's in it.
Mystery or Horror?
#325 Those are the two countries we're learning about in World History. It what came to mind at a moment’s notice. :P
Ooh, tough. Um, I guess I'd say mystery.
Hair curler or hair straightener (and you can't say "neither")?
Ooooh, toughie! I love Batgirl, but I'll have to go with Batman because he is the fricking King of all Superheroes. I still love Barbara, though! :)
Poison Ivy or Harley Quinn?
Lol I'll go with Harley Quinn since he's kinda badass.
Red or Green?
Green. Harley Quinn's not a he, though. She's a she - she's the Joker's on/off girlfriend, and he abuses the crap out of her. She's a pretty cool henchwoman, though. Poison Ivy is another female Batman villain - she uses plants and poisons to achieve her objectives.
Stetsons or bow-ties?
*swoons* Sorry ladies. Picard is MINE.
TPBM is shocked that Eris is turning into a wee bit of a Star Trek fan.
Have we changed to a different game?
Eris obviously has excellent taste!
TV Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) or movie Sherlock (Robert Downey Jr.)?
Oops, my bad! Thanks for getting us back on track, donnao.
I like both, but I think TV Sherlock wins.
GalaxyQuest, or The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. And sorry for falling off the path for a bit! I keep getting my games mixed up. :)
Star Trek or Star Wars?
Oh geez that's a tough one... I like them both! I gotta go with One Direction, though.
Crocs or flipflops?
flipflops during the summer crocs in the garden... so flipflops more
big cities or small towns?
Short hair. That's how I roll.
Little white lies or honest, painful truth?
Winter sports(like skiing) or summer sports(stuff you do at the beach)?
I'm kind of half and half when it comes to seasonal sports. I really like skiing, which is winter obviously, but I also really like to swim in the summer. Plus volleyball in the fall and golf in the spring. I guess I'm kind of an all-season sporty person!
Coloring with markers or coloring with colored pencils?
I thought Harley Quinn was the bad guy that got his faced burned then was killed?? Was his name Harvey something? Harley...Harvey...lol
High School Musical cuz...at the time I thought Zac Effron was hot stuff.
Matt Bomer or Ian Somerhalder?
Harvey Dent is correct, aka, Two Face. In the comics he didn't get his face burned, though (that was just in The Dark Knight movie, as Nolan did a more realistic take on Batman) - Dent got his face mutilated by acid thrown in his face.
#358 Sorry about this being off-topic, but please go to the Sorting Hat. :)
Facebook. I have a Twitter account, but I find the whole setup kind of irritating, actually.
Smoothie or milkshake?
Oh wow, I love both!! Ok, ok....smoothie, because it doesn't make me as fat?? lol
Harry Potter or Edward Cullen?
Harry Potter. I fantasize about Buffy killing Edward.
Knitting or crochet?
Dracula. He has fangs and can turn into a bat. Although downside is he can't enjoy the sun. Whomp whomp.
Mac or PC?
ferris wheel because merry-go-round is too tame. I'm afraid of heights so being up high makes my heart flutter and therefore is more exciting.
Digital photos or Print photos?
Leftover halloween fun sized candy bars or actual candy bars?
Halloween fun size bars, because then you can eat more!
In the spirit of election day:
Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?
If you don't want to answer, just say 'pass' and ask a new question :)
I'm going to pass on this one, sorry swim :(
Pen or Pencil?
>375 Danielle.Montgomery:: That's alright!
Chocolate Cake or Vanilla Cake?
Chocolate (I don't mind answering # 374- Obama)
chicken fingers or fish sticks?
Fire place or heater? *sits on the sofa in ront of her new fireplace*
I would LOVE a fireplace! So jealous.
Curious George or Winnie-the-Pooh?
Umm, Curious George
*types while she can hear a little sis watching Winnie the poo* it can get annoying!
Touchscreen- Stylus or touchscreen?
The Winnie-the-Pooh books are better. I've never watched the show, but the books are delightful. :)
Ouran High School Host Club only because I've heard of that one before.
Soul Eater or Naurto?
Naruto. And ouch, Flan! Now that just hurts. Bond or Sherlock? I'll go with Sherlock but I love Bond, too.
Q (from James Bond) or Q (from Star Trek)?
Almost impossible to choose--- I'll have to go with Data (I prefer TNG to the original by a little bit).
Benedict Cumberbatch or Jeremy Brett
Jeremy Brett. Nothing like the original although Benedict is close.
iPhone or Android?
Rainbow Dash! Although Rarity is awesome. But Rainbow Dash is 20% cooler. :) Have you seen the first episode of Season 3 yet, Lily? It just came out a week ago.
Princess Luna or Princess Celestia?
Wow, that's hard...Um...Princess Celestia, I guess. Though I really love the both of them. :)
Applejack or Twilight Sparkle?
Scootaloo. But I love Apple Bloom, too! They're both so cute. :)
Vinyl Scratch or Octavia?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nerd ( just thought that that was funny.)
FaceTime or Skype?
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules or The Last Straw?
Atta girl, Lily! :D And Rarity, definitely, although her sis is awesome and so adorable.
Discord or Nightmare Moon?
Discord, baby! He was voiced by the same character who played Q in Star Trek, and Discord's character was based off Q, too. That level of awesomeness is hard to beat, especially since Discord came the closest to beating the Mane Six.
Doctor Whooves or Derpy Hooves?
#405 Oh, whoops, I just saw your question! XP Yeah, I did. I just watched the 4th episode yesterday. :)
Wow, that's hard, 'cause my last trip to both of them was on the same trip, so I can't remember which has what...Universal Studios, then! :D
Dragons or phoenixes?
Yay! I've been enjoying watching all the new episodes, too. :D
And dragons. I've always had a thing for dragons, and wanted them to be real when I was a little girl.
Science fiction or fantasy?
fantasy * i luv dragons, if u have a kindle/apple device download the free dragon story game its nerdy, but fun!*
Fish: Betta or Angel?
Ooh, I have Dragon Story! Please give me your Storm8 ID or whatever it's called! :D
Horses: Palomino or bay? :)
don't know enough about horses to say, my storm id is katagirl8 i think,what is yours?
ehh, neither!!!taco bell i guess
school: science or math? (math 4 me)
Are we refering to ourselves? I'd like to say I'm low maintenance hehe
nook or kindle?
