What Do You Want for the Holidays, Lloyd Tenay?

Hotel Transylvania

(I was only going to do War of Nytefall, but I decided to include Ichabod Brooks, Crossing Bedlam, and Legends of Windemere.)

Lloyd Tenay–  We sure fit a lot of people in here.  So, I go first since I’m in the title.  I would like to have the first appearance of Spider-Man, which is ‘Amazing Fantasy #15’.  Bet nobody saw that coming.

Cassidy– Who smells so bad?  Uh, a nickel-plated .41 caliber Colt Thunderer or the .38 caliber Colt Lightening.  Both double action.  I believe those were the ones favored by Doc Holliday.  Next!

Lost–  I went a big bed shaped like a bunny!  The pillows will smell like tomatoes and the blankets will be self-cleaning.  Oh, and it can move on its own.  You never known when you’ll want to sleep on the road and sleeping bags are so boring.

Mab– No idea.  I mean, it isn’t like I can’t just take what I want.  Although, I could always use a fun heist with my old partner.  We haven’t done anything like that in years.

Clyde–  A challenging fight would be nice.  Haven’t had one of those in years . . . Fine.  I also want to go pull a heist with my old partner.  Give me back my leg, Mab, before I beat you with that Lloyd guy.

Bob–  A horse.

Luther–  I do need some oil for my sickles.  They’re getting rusty.

Titus–  You two are rather simple and practical.  I want . . . Hmmm . . . There’s a type of meat found to the west that I haven’t had for a long time.  Really like a steak made out of that.  Not sure what animal it comes from either.

Xavier Tempest & Nadia Sylvan–  We have each other.

Archillious– My greatness demands a statue built in its honor.  Not right now, but once I decide on where it should go.  In the meantime, I would gladly accept the open praise that I truly deserve.

Fizzle–  APPLES!

Gregorio Roman– At my age, I don’t really desire anything.  All I hope is that life doesn’t get boring.  Eternity would be unbearable without excitement.

The Duchess of LaSalle– A collection of bubble baths.  It’s so hard to find beauty products in the Shattered States.  Why is this starting to run so quickly?

Chastity Sullivan–  I think the guy running the show is getting impatient.  Looks like some of us are missing too.  What do I want?  Actually, that indoor tree and strange candelabra thing look like fun.  That spinning game is giving me some ideas for the Scrumptious Siren.  Can I borrow your Earth holidays?  Honestly, I’m more of a giver than a taker.

Kira Grasdon– That my book gets mentioned in here too.  Quest of the Brokenhearted!  Thanks!  Now, I’d like my fiancee back.

Kai Stavros– Could always use more knives.

Stephanie Talon–  All I desire is the attention and love of my mistress.  Why are all the champions be left for the end?

Dariana–  Sorry about that.  I guess being retired means we aren’t moving as quickly as we used to.  Not that we’re old, but there’s no rush for us.  I would like to have some ice cream.  The food in my current location is good, but I’m getting bored of it.

Sari–  I still want my candy wagon.  It would be so much fun to drive that around the world and give free treats to people.  Kind of like that big old guy in your world.  Don’t think I’d want his outfit though.

Nyx–  A good night’s sleep?  I’m trying to run a kingdom, raise kids, and not blow up that obnoxious mercenary country that popped up on my border.  Doesn’t help that the twins take turns crying for me.  Think I’d rather fight Baron Kernaghan again.

Delvin Cunningham–  What my wife said.  Alexander and Fiona are just as much a handful as the twins.  Those two really need to stop bickering, especially when they’re at the academy.

Queen Trinity–  I want all of the books that were lost during the Baron’s reign to be revived and returned to my people.  We lost a lot of our history and culture, which I’m sure has to be hidden in the world somewhere.

Timoran Wrath–  A good mug of ale and a hearty roast.  It is the simple things in life that I prefer these days.

Luke Callindor–  The ability to go back in time and stop myself from making a really big mistake.  Actually, that sounds pretty immature and I have to accept responsibility for what I did.  So, I just want a day of peace.  I’m so tired of running.  Who’s left?

Ichabod Brooks–  Just me and I’ve been having fun watching you kids run around.  Well, you kids and the collection of immortals.  Now, what to ask for?  An enchanted oven would be helpful when I make cookies for my adventures.  The one I have is good, but the magic was designed to obey my wife more than me.  So, I have to depend more on my own skills than it.  On second thought, I’d rather it go that way.  I’ll take a family vacation to Cerascent then.  One that doesn’t turn into an adventure.  That shouldn’t be too much to ask for.

  1. This was fun, Charles. I liked the fourth wall comment of Chasity.


  2. I’m with Timoran. Give me a beer and a roast beef sandwich and I’m happy, lol
    Enjoyed this, Charles 🙂

    I kinda want to see Clyde beating someone with Lloyd. 😁 Though I don’t imagine it will go well with Lloyd.
    A great list! Nice to see everyone getting along. 😀


  4. Love it and the comment from Bob just cracked me up. It’s so, Bob.


  5. A family vacation that doesn’t turn into an adventure? Don’t ask for much, do you, Ichabod.

  7. I love your characters’ voices and how distinct and well drawn they are. Kira’s loss always makes me sad in an almost palpable way. Ichabod should know better than to jinx his own holidays. And someone get that dragon-who’s-not-a-dragon an apple, for crying out loud! Make that a candied one for extra holiday spirit. Do drizzles get cavities?
