Thoughtful Thursday: SFF Tinder profiles

As Valentine’s Day approaches, and thoughts turn to romance, we thought it’d be fun to imagine how some of our favorite science fiction & fantasy characters might promote themselves on Tinder.

We’ve started you off with a couple of our own (click image to embiggen). Now it’s your turn. Write a “Facts About Me” paragraph for any SFF character’s Tinder profile. Add as many as you like and we’ll choose our favorite to win a book from our stacks. We look forward to seeing how your characters put themselves out there…

BILL CAPOSSERE, who's been with us since June 2007, lives in Rochester NY, where he is lately spending much of his time trying to finish a book-length collection of essays and a full-length play. His prior work has appeared in Colorado Review, Rosebud, Alaska Quarterly, and other journals and been recognized in the "Notable Essays" section of several Best American Essay anthologies. When he's not writing, reading, reviewing, co-writing the Malazan Empire re-read at, or working as an English adjunct, he can usually be found with his wife and son on the frisbee golf course, the ultimate frisbee field, or trying to keep up with his wife's flute and his son's trumpet on the clarinet he just picked up this month.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what other people come up with.

    S, age is is just a number.

    Everyone tells me my eye is my most notable feature. I want to find someone who would enjoy being spiritually consumed by me, a helpmeet who will give me the support I need in dominating all of Middle Earth. I’m really not complicated. My needs and wants are pretty simple and straightforward. I think if we all give each other enough room and space to grow and evolve we’ll all get along. But I have to be respected. Isn’t that just fundamental decency? Anyway, if subservience to my total domination sounds cool, give me a holler. No fatties, please.

  4. Hahaha! I love the internet!

    I love to read and discover the truth about the past. I’m not the most athletic guy, but I have been to war and brought a city to its knees. I’m a bit lonely, but have a definite type. So, if you’re not skinny and pale please swipe left. Just a heads up: if we do meet up, I’ll be with my best friend and high priest – don’t worry about him, he’ll just be standing over in the corner. And please don’t break my heart… I just might have to murder everybody you’ve ever cared about if you do. Cheers!

  7. Thank you Marion! I got the book!
