Venator Kill Line Contest

THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED

After reading yesterday's interview with Colleen Gleason, you might be finding yourself intrigued by the mysterious and alluring world of the Venator. With seductive looks, intense physical training, and keen intelligence, who wouldn't want to lead the adventurous life of an infamous vampire hunter? Read on to discover how today is your chance to travel the path of the Venator!

Throughout literature and film, vampires are notorious for having great kill lines: sayings that indicate that a pair of sharp canine teeth are about to imbed themselves in the neck of their chosen victim. Take for instance, Dracula as portrayed by Gary Oldman from the 1992 film: I condemn you to living death. To eternal hunger for living blood. It gives me the willies just typing it!

Venators, though, can have their own kill lines, and as well they should! After all, they're the heros of the story, and a set of classic one-liners can prove to be handy in lifting the mood when faced with perilious odds. Now it is your turn to show your wit and creativity by creating your own Venator kill lines!

Just leave one Venator kill line per comment. Make it interesting, captivating, and original! After having left a comment, you must visit the person above you and leave a comment on his/her blog. Make sure to say Venators rock at Zeus'! The winner of the contest will be the person who leaves the most kill lines by midnight on Thursday, January 4. The results will be announced the next day.

Curious as to what you'll win? Should you be the grand prize winner, you will receive an autographed copy of The Rest Falls Away as well as an autographed stake from Colleen Gleason. With your new book in one hand and your wooden stake in the other, I hardly think you'll find yourself unprepared for any creature of the night to come your way!

Come back often, and make sure to let others know about the contest by posting it on your own blog! If you need inspiration for your kill lines, why not try visiting The Venator Store? After all, a natural-born Venator needs a wickedly awesome outfit when whipping out quick one-liners!

This contest is listed at competizione.

What we have here is a failure to communicate!

Fuzzybear said...

How about this:

"Action is eloquence"

Fuzzybear said...

Relax, you look fantastic, a stake in the heart is the latest thing!

Fuzzybear said...

Here I go again quoting the Bard. It just sounds so cool!


"I feel within me a peace above all earthly dignities, a still and quiet conscience."

Fuzzybear said...

You would make a lovely corpse!

Fuzzybear said...

You should have just rolled over and stayed in the coffin this evening.

Fuzzybear said...

Ohh I am so sorry, I am such a klutz. I had no intention to impale you with that stake.

Fuzzybear said...

Is this one of those magic moments in a relationship?

Fuzzybear said...

Since this is something of a cat blog. I offer this tribute to "Cat got your tongue"


Stake got your Heart?

Fuzzybear said...

Look at the stake as an ice breaker. You'll be the life of the party the next time the walking dead get together.

Afraid taking two asprin and calling the witch doctor in the morning is not going to be very helpful.

Fuzzybear said...

How do you like your stake?

Fuzzybear said...

Ohh, you wanted your steak bloody not a bloody stake.

Fuzzybear said...

Sorry Vlad, I just wasn't in a place in my life to make an emotional commitment.

Fuzzybear said...

Why are you dressed for a funeral?

Fuzzybear said...

Chin up, you didn't die from old age!

Ode to Fight Club

On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

Fuzzybear said...

My PMS now has a body count!

Fuzzybear said...

Since Zeus's human pet loves the movie Spaceballs I will steal a line in her honor.

Dark Helmet: If there's one thing I despise, it is a fair fight.

Think of it as a release from the bondage of my iron paw.

Cheysuli said...

I DO NOT have tuna breath!

Cheysuli said...

God gave me fangs for a reason.

Cheysuli said...

It's Carmen's fault. She kept coming up with good lines so I have to kill more of you to think up good killing lines.

Carmen said...

Anonymous said...

Hi Zeus. Thank you to your mom for her kind comment on my blog. It was much appreciated and she is so right about that strength! :-)

I don't think I can come up with lines that would rival ones already made or even that many. In the spirit of things though here is my effort:

"You're breaking my heart, so I'm staking yours".

Anonymous said...

How about:

"Suck this."

Fuzzybear said...

That gal from Paris always said you had no heart, now she's right

Fuzzybear said...

Please Mister please, don't blame me.

Fuzzybear said...

It's all fun and games until someone gets a stake through the heart

Fuzzybear said...

You grow up the day you first have to drive a stake through some vampires heart.

Fuzzybear said...

You laugh at me because I am different, I stab you the heart because your a vampire!

Fuzzybear said...

It’s just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I just kill vampires.

Fuzzybear said...

I'll free you of your prison of having to walk through this world all alone.

Fuzzybear said...

Thou traitorous shard-borne death-token!

Fuzzybear said...

Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with a stake through his heart.

Fuzzybear said...

Can I get you a hearse?

Fuzzybear said...

Just how do you prevent tooth decay?

Fuzzybear said...

You really could use a breath mint!

Fuzzybear said...

I have to admit being the giver of this stake through the heart is a hell of alot better then receiving it.

Fuzzybear said...

Is that a stake through your heart or are you thrashing about in your death throws because your happy to see me?

Fuzzybear said...

Who's your impaler now!

Fuzzybear said...

So whats your sign?

Fuzzybear said...

Whats a little stake through the heart between friends.
