What literary character would you most like to take on a Valentine's Day date?

Carol: Major Pettigrew

My reason for flirting with Major Pettigrew? He's an imperfect gentleman who gives consideration to an imperfect lady.

Cathy: T.J. Jones

Cathy v: Matthew Clairmont

Well, that choice admittedly might be a little dangerous.

Mary Fran: Carl Morck

I'd like to sit down in a bar with Morck and explore the depths of the criminal mind. In Adler-Olsen's books, he has dealt with some unsavory characters, and I'd like to hear his take on what sends a person over the brink to the other side.

Lysbeth: Jamie Fraser

Tasha: Aragorn

REALLY I would like to take Serafina Pekkala from Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass on a Valentine's Day date, because she's strong and wild, and we could fly around on her cloud pine branch with her goose. Also, I'm pretty sure she's single, right? Aragorn's heart is taken, which has been making me feel guily, even if he is a fictional character.

Sara: Morgaine

In all honestly, I'd probably be really intimidated to go out with Morgaine and I doubt she'd reveal anything of interest to a non-initiate, which would be the whole point. I really want to discover all the secrets of Avalon. Still it'd be pretty awesome to say you'd been on a date with Morgan Le Fay. Otherwise I'd choose "A" from Every Day, because you'd have no idea who was actually going to show up.

Greg: Janet Pluchinsky

Because Janet knows how to have fun, but never at the expense of anyone she cares about.

Lindsay: Jamie Fraser

Stephanie: Sherlock Holmes

I'd spend the entire time learning how to make deductions about people's lives and learn everyone's secrets.
