Pick Your Familiar

It’s week four of our five week Cyber Launch Party! This week, the prize is a box of paranormal books. The winner will be drawn from all this week’s comments and announced on the weekend.

In my books, the witches have lost their bonds with their familiars, causing them to lose their high magic. They have to fix that, and they do it in a pretty cool way!

But alas, I cannot tell you how.  That would be wrong.

So instead, I thought we’d have fun and pick our familiars from the pictures below.


How about Darth Vadar?









Or this Tas-Devil?







Or this wofl?








Or Croc?





Or are you the type to go for the Bad Boy Familiar?









Who would you pick and why?

    What happened to cats?

    If I can’t have a cat, maybe a cute cuddly dragon to singe things up a bit.

    Bad boys. I love the bad boy type. You could never go wrong with a bad boy. They are strong, tough & a can be a good body guard heehee.

    Cele, I didn’t have a cat in the file I was using, but I’ll find you a cat! In the meantime, the cuddly dragon will keep the flame burning for you :-)

    LindaH, another bad boy fan! I think this particular bad boy might be REALLY bad…he even has horns!

    But we all know horny men are…a dime a dozen. *snerk* But then again, those horns might come in handy for…steering. Just sayin’.

    *sings more* “Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha’ gonna do to make me come with you.”

    Maureen, I love that idea! I would have sicced him on all the people bugging me when I was out running errands today!

    Silver, how can we resist horns? The jokes practically write themselves!

    Maureen, I had the screaming wild thing in one store disguised as a two year old boy. Mom was heavily pregnant and trying to get the boy to calm down. Dad didn’t lift a finger. I looked at that lazy dad and thought, where are those horns when you need them? (The two year old boy didn’t bother me, he was just being a toddler!)

    Hey, I was gonna pick the croc, too! Maureen and I were separated at birth, did you know?

    Anyway, the croc is kinda cute and he’s got big teeth to chew up those bad boys. I mean, really bad boys, not, ya know, *bad* boys. :-)

    Kate, what do you want to…chew…on bad boys? Just asking, LOL!!

    Crocs! They’ve been in the news of late and have me scared.

    Tas-devil for me, I always kind of liked him!

    Definitely bad-boy familiar. He seems like the most fun. The crock, while cute, is too scaly, Taz would cause too much mischieve, Vadar’s too evil, and that wolf doesn’t look like he’s got anything helpful on his mind.
