Yes, it's that awesome time of week again, Follow Friday. For those of you who may have missed it, Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkie and Alison Can Read and is intended to help like minded bloggers network with one another. The great thing about this meme is that both of the hosts have a feature blog each week, and there is always a question that gets everyone talking. This week's question is:
Q: 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 would have Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice fight Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights simply because they are both iconic leading men of British Literature, but are so radically different from one another. Although Heathcliff is probably physically stronger, Mr Darcy would win through his intelligence, character and sense of fair play. Plus, unless your name is Elizabeth Bennet, you don't want to make Mr Darcy angry.
Thanks for stopping by and following! I followed back!

@Aeicha. You're welcome. I'm glad you agree with me regarding Mr Darcy!
Also, as soon as I saw your matchup, my thought was "PLEASE let Mr. Darcy win over jerky Heathcliff." And of course he did.
*sigh* I think we all kind of want our own Mr. Darcy
Ummm....[*waves at husband - love you, Honey!*]
Anyway, love your matchup. Best one I've read today. Thanks for the follow and comment, and I'm following you now too!
Thanks for stopping by!
Following back :)
It's funny that you went for the other leading man in P&P to me. I went for the one full of hot air and you went for the one full of... better substance. Difference is, I'd love to see Wickham get thrashed in a fight. I'd have to see Darcy even in a fight. :p Nice picks though!
