Happily Ever After; Dating Service for Ficional Characters, Session Two

Voted as the number one dating service for fictional characters.


It doesn't matter if you're a hero or a zero on the pages, our on-line dating service will help you find your soul mate.

 
We'll have you picking out matching bookmarks before you can say, 'library late fees'.


Last week Katniss Everdeen and Victor Frankenstein had success in pairing together.

The chat room is about to get started! Let's see who's looking for love today.

Moderator: Hello, everyone. I see we have a whole new group! Splendid. Who would like to start the conversation tonight? Go ahead, don't by shy.

Philip Pirrip: I suspect I should like to go first, sir. My story is a sad one, unfortunately. The girl I gave my heart to has but ripped it out of my chest and squeezed the life from it.
 
Scarlett O'Hara: How horrific, Mr. Pirrip. I can't imagine any lady worth keeping who is capable of such a massacre.
 
Philip Pirrip: Well, it wasn't a massacre...at least not literally. And please, call me Pip, everybody does.

Ponyboy Curtis: A broken heart? I've survived worse.

 George Weasley: Tough break, blokes. I feels for ya. Sounds like you two are in need of a little pick me up. Maybe some 'Feel Rite Fizzy Bombs Bubblegum'... or maybe a 'Jovial Joker Jawbreaker?'
 
Lydia Bennet: I'll take ten Fizzy Bombs! The General is throwing a ball tomorrow night. And what a lark it will be!
 
Philip Pirrip: Do you need an escort, Miss Bennet?
 
George Weasley: Right, then. Ten Fizzy Bombs at ten knuts a piece...that will be one hundred knuts or three Sickles and four knuts.
 
Lydia Bennet: What's a sickle?
 
Scarlett O'Hara: It's a terrible infliction the Yankees brought with them. Since the war started all of my beaus have left Tara lonely and desolate.
 
Philip Pirrip: Is this Tara a nice girl? Is she looking for someone to love, too?
 
Ponyboy Curtis: Be careful what you wish for Pip. Sometimes certain groups just can't mix, you know? Sometimes all you got is the sun on your face and the street beneath your feet.
 
George Weasley: Whoa! Blimey, Ponyboy, you're killing the party. Tell ya what, I'll send you five Fizzy Bombs, on the house.
 

Lydia Bennet: Weasley! How generous. Wherever do you get your ideas? I suspect an evening dancing with you could have me laughing so hard I'd lose my breath.
 
George Weasley: I can think of a few things besides dancing that could leave us both breathless.
 
 Lydia Bennet: You're absolutely incorrigible! I love incorrigible young men!
 
Philip Pirrip: I'm incorrigable.
 
Scarlett O'Hara: You're also a lousy speller. But that's no matter, I like your desperation. I need more admirers. Tell me, do you ride?
 
Philip Pirrip: I mostly go on foot.
 
Scarlett O'Hara: I meant horses, silly. How about you, Ponyboy? Is that where you get your nickname?
 
Ponyboy Curtis: I'm from the wrong side of the tracks, Scarlett. I don't ride horses. I don't have fancy clothes. All I have are my two brothers.
 

Scarlett O'Hara: Fiddle dee dee! Older brothers? Are you Yankees?
 
Ponyboy Curtis: Well, we're American if that's what you mean.
 
Scarlett O'Hara: Perfect. You and your equally desperate brothers are expected at Tara next week. I'll have Mammy make sure cook does up her famous roast chicken.
 
Ponyboy Curtis: Um...okay.
 
Philip Pirrip: I'm studying! I'm going to be important some day!
 
Lydia Bennet: What are you studying?

Philip Pirrip: To be a gentleman.
 
Lydia Bennet: I see.

Scarlett O'Hara: Oh.
 
Ponyboy Curtis: Uh-huh.
 
George Weasley: I'm still in school. We have to wear uniforms and everything.
 

Lydia Bennet: I love a man in a uniform! Where is your school? Do you have dances?
 
George Weasley: I'll send an owl to you with all the particulars, my lovely...and an extra Fizzy Bomb. 
 
Lydia Bennet: *giggles*
 
Philip Pirrip: I'd appreciate an invitation too, Weasley.
 
George Weasley: Sorry, bloke. Only one Muggle per dance. Hogwarts rule.
 
Ponyboy Curtis: Muggle?
 
Phillip Pirrip: All right. Well, I guess this is good night. I've enjoyed meeting everyone and I hope we can continue this discussion in a fortnight.
 
Philip Pirrip: Good night...?
 
Lydia Bennet: Pip? I'll be visiting my uncle in Cheapsidenext week. May I call on you?
 
Philip Pirrip: YES!!!
 
Lydia Bennet: I dare suspect a few Fizzy Bombs will make for an enjoyable tea!
 
Moderator: This session is now closed. Until next time, everyone...and happily ever after.


Who would you like to see paired up next?
