Kisses & Wibbles

This week we're voting on the BEST kisses in Sookiedom. Since all the suitors deserve their own spotlight, we will get to vote on each one's best (or favorite) kiss. This poll is a little longer due to the quotes. All quote page references are from my hardback editions with the exception of Club Dead which is still paperback. There were three submissions that I couldn't find either because the page numbers were off or/and not enough information given about the scene and I couldn't locate it through my tired-minded skilz. I'll also admit now that several of the scenes submitted were more sexual and not a kiss. I'll apologize upfront for leaving out the sex parts since it was a "kiss" poll not a sex poll. I'm sure there are some disappointments in that regard, but if the scene involved a kiss - then I've edited it to just that. I even had to throw out one of my own faves. :-( Poor Calvin didn't get any submissions. Only one person sent in anything for Alcide. Several people sent in for Sam, but they were repeats and he only has two - have they only kissed twice? hmmmmm;-) Anywhooo - Now it's time to grab a fan, turn up the AC and prepare to melt into a puddle of goo. ENJOY

First we'll do Alcide, uhmmmm, not much to choose from. Were there more and we've forgotten them? Oh well, two is better than one or none.

77% (74) In CD - Bad Timing & help with a zipper p 113 - I felt his big fingers against my back, and the little hiss of the zipper. Then something unexpected happened; I felt him touch me agaqin. I shivered all over as his fingers trailed down my skin. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know what I wanted to do. I made myself turn to face him. His face was as uncertain as mine. "Worst possible time," I said. "You're on the rebound. I'm looking for my boyfriend: granted, he's my unfaithful boyfriend, but stil. . ." Bad timing," he agreed, and his hands settled on my shoulders. Then he bent down and kised me. It took about a half a second for my arms to go around his waist and his tongue to slide into my mouth. He kissed soft. I wanted to run my fingers through his hair. . .
22% (22) In CD - When he returns her suitcase to her in Bon Temps p 281 - He was closer to me than I'd thought, and he gave me a peck on the lips in farewell. But after the peck, which was okay, he returned for a longer good-bye. His lips felt so warm; and after a second, his tongue felt even warmer. His head turned slightly to get a better angle, and then he went at it again. His right hand hovered above me, trying to find a place to settle that wouldn't hurt me. Finally he covered my left hand with his. Oh boy, this was good.

Next we'll do Sam. Please choose ONE favorite kiss from those below.

74% (78) In DAAD - p 141-142 - He stood by me propped against his desk and set his crutches aside. He put his arm around me. I turned to him and slid my arms around his waist. He held me to him, and I felt peaceful for a wonderful minute. The heat of his body warmed me, and the knowledge of his affection comforted me. “Does your leg hurt?” I asked when he moved restlessly. “Not my leg,” he said. I looked up, puzzled, to meet his eyes. He looked rueful. Suddenly, I became aware of exactly what was hurting Sam, and I flushed red. But I didn’t let go of him. I was reluctant to end the comfort of being close to someone—no, of being close to Sam. When I didn’t move away, he slowly put his lips to mine, giving me every chance to step out of reach. His mouth brushed mine once, twice. Then he settled in to kissing me, and the heat of his tongue filled my mouth, stroking. That felt incredibly good. With the visit of the Marriot family, I’d been browsing the Mystery section. Now I’d definitely wandered over to the Romances. His height was close enough to mine that I didn’t have to strain upward to meet his mouth. His kiss became more urgent. His lips strayed down my neck, to the vulnerable and sensitive place just at the base, and his teeth nipped very gently. I gasped. I just couldn’t help it. If I’d had the gift of teleportation, I would’ve had us somewhere more private in an instant. Remotely, I felt there was something kind of tacky at feeling this lustful in a messy office in a bar. But the heat surged as he kissed me again. We’d always had something between us, and the smoldering ember had just burst into flame. I struggled to hold on to some sense. Was this survivor lust? What about his leg? Did he really need the buttons on his shirt? “Not good enough for you here,” he said, doing a little gasping of his own. He pulled away and reached for his crutches, but then he hauled me back and kissed me again.
25% (27) In LDID - When he hears the meanad had hurt her p 53 - "you were hurt? How did this happen?" So I told him, trying to leave someof the drama out of it, and toning down the healing process employed by the vamires of Shreveport. He stillw anted to see the scars. I turnd around, and he pulled up my tee shirt, not past bra strap level. He didn't make a sound, but I felt a touch on my back, and after a second I ralized Sam had kissed my skin. I shivered. He pulled teh tee shirt over my scars and turned me around. "I'm very sorry," he said, with complete sincerity.

Now we're getting down to business. I'm doing the primary 3 in alphabetical order. Bill's up. Here are his kissable moments. Choose FOUR.

74% (78) From DUD - 1st kiss after meeting Gran. p 62-63 I stopped him by pulling gently on his hand. I stretched up and lay my lips on his shining cheek. I inhaled the scent of him, ordinary by faintly salty. He was wearing a trace of cologne. I felt him shudder. He turned his head so his lips touched mine. After a moment, I reached to circle his neck with my arms. His kiss deepened, and I parted my lips. I'd never been kissed like this. It went on and on until I thought the whole world was involved in this kiss in the vampire's mouth on mine. I could feel my breathing speeding up, and I began to want other things to happen. Suddenly Bill pulled back. He looked shaken, which pleased me no end. "Good night, Sookie," he said, stroking my hair on last time. "Good night, Bill," I said. I sounded pretty quavery myself.
35% (37) From DUD - when Sookie & Bill separate after he has Uncle Bartlett disposed of p 180 - "Kiss me," he said. I lifted my head and turned, and our lips met. It was blue fire, not orange-and-red flames, not that kind of heat: blue fire. After a second, his arms went around me. After another, my arms went around him. I began to feel boneless, limp. With a gasp, I pulled away. "Oh, we can't, Bill." I heard his breath draw in. "Of course not, if we're separating," he said quietly, but he didn't sound like he thought I meant it. "We should definitely not be kissing."
51% (54) In LDID - After the football game p 228 - "As I unlocked the front door, Bill came out of the darkness. Without a word, he grabbed my arm and turned me to him, and then he kissed me. In a minute we were pressed against the door with his body moving rhythmically against mine. . . ."
70% (74) In DUD - After the Fantasia raid while they're driving back to Bon Temps p 121 - We had driven a few blocks when suddenly Bill pulled into the parking lot of yet another darkened strip mall. "What--?" I began, but got no further. Bill had unclipped my seat belt, moved the seat back, and grabbed me before I had finished my sentence. Frightened that he was agnry, I pushed against him at first, but I might as well have been heaving against a tree. THen his mouth located mine, and I knew what he was. Oh, boy, could he kiss. We might have problems communicating on some levels, but this wasn't one of them. We had a great time for maybe five minutes. I felt all the right things moving through my body in waves. Despite the awkwardness of being in the front seat of a car, I managed to be comfortable, mostly because he was so strong and considerate. I nipped his skin with my teeth. He made a sound like a growl. "Sookie!" His voice was ragged. I moved away from him, maybe half an inch. "If you do that anymore, I'll have you whether you want to be had or not," he said, and I could tell he meant it.
19% (20) In LDID - After bathing her and slipping into bed together, Sookie explained about the FotS ordeal she endured at their compound and afterward p 193 - Bill kissed me, a very satisfying kiss, and that was the last thing I remembered.
62% (66) In DUD - The kiss before they first make love p 153 - I could feel his cool fingers lifting the hair away from my neck and then I felt his mouth just at the nape. I couldn't speak or move. I exhaled slowly, trying not to make another sound. His lips moved to my ear, and he caught the lobe of it between his teeth. Then his tongue darted in. His arms came around me, crossing over my chest, pulling me back against him. And for a miracle I only heard what his body was saying, not those niggling things fromminds that only foul up moments like this.
7% (8) In DTTW - The last kiss before he heads to Peru p 5 - We stood, and I gave him a quick brush of lips to the cheek.

105 voters have answered this question.

Now for James Blonde, aka ERIC, the Viking Hunk of LOVE. If you've gotten this far and suddenly the poll ends, it is because I'm in a puddle of caddgoo and can't regroup. But in all fairness, Eric only gets FOUR choices too. I know; it'll be difficult.

36% (38) In Dracula Night - James Blonde p 9 - Eric's Eyes were blazing with excitement. Without a word, he dipped me as though we were dancing and planted a hell of a kiss on me: lips, tongue, the entire osculant assemblage. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. When I was quivering, he assisted me to rise. HIs brillant smile revealed glistening fangs. Eric had enjoyed himslef. "Hello to you too," I said tartly, once I was sure I was breathing again. "My delicious friend," Eric said, and bowed.
16% (17) In LDID - At Stan's mansion after she sucks the bullet p 214 - "Well, there," I said, and looked up. "That was the grossest---" "Your lips are bloody." He seized my face in both hands and kissed me. It's hard not to respond when a master of the art of kissing is laying one on you.
14% (15) In LDID - At the orgy before they go inside p 252 - “Then I'll act friendly." We were out of the car by that time. Eric bent, and without yanking me to him, set his mouth on mine. He didn't grab me, so I felt fairly relaxed. I'd known that at the very minimum I'd have to kiss other people. So I set my mind to it. Maybe I had natural talent, which had been nurtured by a great teacher. Bill had pronounced me an excellent kisser, and I wanted to do him proud. Judging from the state of Eric's Lycra, I succeeded.
26% (28) In CD - After her staking and healing p 184-185 - “I don't really care why you have sex with me, as long as you do it," he said, equally gently. His mouth was on mine then. Try as I might to stay detached, I wasn't too successful. For one thing, Eric had had hundreds of years to practice his kissing technique, and he'd used them to good advantage. I snuck my hands up to his shoulders, and I am ashamed to say I responded. . . .
22% (24) In DTTW - Just before the Witch War p 228 - Soon we were at the corner where Eric was supposed to part from us so he could rendezvous with the other vampires. I would have continued on to my appointed post without a word; by now I was keyed up to such a pitch of tension I felt I could vibrate if you tapped me with a finger. But Eric wasn't content with a silent separation. He gripped my arms and kissed me for all he was worth, and believe me, that was plenty.
16% (17) In DTTW - After the Stonebrooks come into Merlottes p 154-155 - I was caught in midbound by a pair of arms like steel bands. Lifted and whirled, I was wrapped around Eric’s waist before I knew it. “Eric,” I said, “you shouldn't be out—“ My words were cut off by his mouth over mine. For a minute, going along with this program seemed like a viable alternative. I’d just forget about all the badness and screw his brains out on my back porch, cold as it was. But sanity seeped back in past my overloaded emotional state, and I pulled a little away. He was wearing the jeans and Louisiana Tech Bulldogs sweatshirt Jason had bought for him at Wal-Mart. Eric’s big hands supported my bottom, and my legs circled him as if they were used to it.
15% (16) In DTTW - The makeshift proposal before they go into Pam's place p 213 - Before we got out of my old car, Eric leaned over to kiss me. We looked at each other, his eyes wide and blue, the whites so white you could hardly look away, his golden hair neatly brushed. He'd tied it back with one of my elastic bands, a bright blue one. He was wearing a pair of jeans and a new flannel shirt. "We could go back," he said.. . .
1% (2) In DTTW - When the weres and the witches show up at Bill's house p165 - "Come on, lover, let's have a look," Eric said, giving me a quick kiss. He jumped off the back porch with me still attached to him—like a large barnacle—and he landed silently, which seemed amazing.
29% (31) In DTTW - The shower aftermath p 122 - The next hting I knew, the water was off and he way drying me with a fluffy white towel, and I was rubbing him with another one. Then we just kissed for awhile, over and over. . . .
41% (44) In DTTW - After she explains that she is used to being treated poorly p 188 - "Cut it out," I said. "Make me," he said. "you have the most beautiful breasts I've ever seen. You're brave." I put my fingers across his mouth, and his tongue darted out to give them a quick lick. I relaced against him, feeling the tingle down to my toes. "You're responsible and hardworking," he continued. Before he could tell me that I was good about replacing the garbage can liner when I took the garbage out, I replaced my fingers with my lilps. "There," he said softly, after a long moment. "You're creative, too."
12% (13) In DAAD - At Merlotte's after the patrons have killed Charles Twining p 295 - "Wait one moment," he said suddenly, and justlikethat he was in front of me. I looked up, feeling massively tired. He bent and kissed me on my mouth, as softly as a butterfly’s fluttering. "You said I told you you were the best I’d ever had," he said. "But did you respond in kind?" "Don’t you wish you knew?" I said, and went back to work
17% (18) In DAAD - After she tells him about their time together but before Mickey arrives at the duplex p 219-220 - His lips were about two millimeters from my ear. “Should I just bite you,and end it all?” he whispered. “I would never have to think about you again. Thinking about you is an annoying habit, and one I want to be rid of. Or should I start arousing you, and discover if sex with you was really the best I’ve ever had?” I didn’t think I was going to get a vote on this. I cleared my throat. “Eric,” I said, a little hoarsely, “we need to talk about something.” “No. No. No,” he said. With each “no” his lips brushed my skin.
3% (4) In DD - During the battle at the Queen's compound p 310 - “I've got you," Eric said. “What the hell are you doing?” “Protecting you," he said. He was smiling with the joy of battle, and his blue eyes were glittering like sapphires. Eric loved a brawl. “I don't see anybody coming after me," I said. “It seems to me like the queen needs you more than I do. But I appreciate it." Carried away on a wave of excitement, Eric kissed me long and hard and then scooped up Wybert's head.
20% (22) In ATD - After Sookie's conversation with Pam p 91 - Eric decided action would speak louder than words. Suddenly, he was right in front of me, He put a finger under my chin and lifted my face to his. His eyes, which looked simply dark in the irregular light, latched onto mine with an intensity that was both painful and exciting. Vampires; mixed feelings, one in the same. Not exactly to my astonishment, he kissed me. When someone has had approximately a thousand years to practice kissing, he can become very good at it, and I would be lying if I said I was immune to such osculatory talent. My temperature zoomed up about ten degrees. . . .
41% (44) In FDTW - When Sookie is about to meet Niall p 66 - "Don’t worry, you're beautiful," Eric said quietly. He was leaned over to unbuckle my seat belt (to my astonishment), and as he straightened he kissed me again, this time on the mouth. His bright blue eyes blazed out of his white face. He looked as if a whole story was on the tip of his tongue. But then he swallowed is back and unfolded himself from the car to walk around my side to open the door for me. Maybe I wasn't the only one this blood bond worked on, huh?
18% (19) In FDTW - after the Were attacked them p 90-91 - I peered into the Corvette and found it empty. The only reminder of what had just happened was a smear of blood on Eric’s seat, and I pulled a tissue out of my purse, spat on it, and rubbed the drying blood off; not a very elegant solution, but practical. Suddenly, Eric was beside me, and I had to stifle a shriek. He was still excited by the unexpected attack, and he pinned me against the side of the car, holding my head at the correct angle for a kiss. I felt a lurch of desire and came very close to saying, “What the hell, take me now, you big Viking.” It was not only the blood bond inclining me to accept his tacit offer, but my memory of how wonderful Eric was in bed.
29% (31) In FDTW - Just before they open the door to Victor p 201 - Eric seemed to gather himself, and after one long last look at each other, he and Bill relaxed. Eric turned to me, kissed me on the lips very lightly, and looked at my face for a long moment. "He'll spare you," Eric said, and I understood he wasn't really talking to me but to himself. "You're too unique to waste."
4% (5) In FDTW - After Sookie meets Felipe p 312 - “Yes, sir. I’m sorry to meet you and run, but it’s really cold out here and I need to get home.” I beamed at him, my lunatic beam I give when I’m really nervous. “Good-bye, Eric,” I babbled, and stood on tiptoe to kiss him on the cheek. “Give me a call when you have a minute. Unless you need me to stay, for some crazy reason?” “No, lover, you need to go home and get into the warmth,” Eric said, clasping both my hands in his. “I’ll call you when my work permits.”

And, finally, the Tiger is up. Here are Quinn's wibbley kissable moments; after all, they're all Gggggreeaaaattt!!! Choose FOUR.

34% (36) In DD - After it appears that Sookie has had sex with Andre p246 - "It's fine if others think that," I said carefully. "Just not you." He looked down at me for a long moment, his eyes searching mine as if he were reading some writing on the back of my eyeballs. “Would you like to go to bed with someone this evening?” he asked. He kissed me. He kissed me for a long, long time as we stood glued together in the courtyard.
75% (79) In DD - The non-sex sex-scene p 255-256 - "Tell me you don't want me to kiss you, and I'll back off," he said, and then he was kissing me. I didn’t say a word. When the height difference became an issue, Quinn just picked me up and put me on the edge of the kitchen counter. A clap of thunder sounded outside as I parted my knees to let him get as close to me as he could. I wrapped my legs around him. He pulled the elastic band out of my hair, not a totally pain-free process, and ran his fingers through the tangles. He crushed my hair in his hand and inhaled deeply, as if he were extracting the perfume from a flower.
34% (36) In ATD - In the Infirmary after Quinn takes the arrow p 243 - I leaned over so far I thought I was going to fall on top of him, and I kissed him, just a quick pressure of my mouth on his. But then he held my shoulder and pulled me back to him and there much more to explore, his warmth and intensity…but then his gasp drew up out of the moment. He was trying not to grimace with pain. "Oh! I’m sorry." "Don’t ever apologize for a kiss like that," he said. And he didn’t look teary anymore. "We definitely have something going on, Sookie.
68% (72) In DD - In the parking lot and after leaving Hair of the Dog p 114 - Moving quicker than I could track, I was against the car and his mouth was on mine. After a startled second, I was right in the moment. Shared dander does that, and it was the second time-on our first date- that we’d been in peril. Was that bad omen? I dismissed that rational thought when Quinn’s lips and teeth traveled down to find the vulnerable and sensitive place where the neck curves into the shoulder. I made an incoherent noise, because along with the arousal I always felt when kissed there, I felt undeniable pain from the bruises that circles my neck. It was an uncomfortable combination. “Sorry, sorry,” he muttered into my skin, his lips never stopping the assault. I knew if I lowered my hand, I’d be able to touch him intimately. I’m not saying I wasn’t tempted. But I was learning a little caution as I went along…probably not enough, I reflected with the sliver of my mind that wasn’t getting more and more involved with the heat that surged up from my lowest nerve bundle to meet the heat generated by Quinn’s lips. Oh, geez. Oh, oh, oh. . . .
30% (32) In DD - After the bitten were attack when Sookie tells Quinn she doesn't want to go to the hospital p101 - "Then we won't go." He bent and kissed my cheek. I turned my face up to him, and his next kiss landed in exactly the right spot. After a gentle second, it flared into something more intense. We were both feeling the aftereffects of the adrenaline rush.
39% (41) In ATD - After Sookie says yes to doing the deed p 33 - And then, lickety-split, Quinn was on his feet and his arms were around me as tightly as ropes tying us together. His mouth found mine. We picked up where we'd left off with the kissing. His mouth was a very clever one and his tongue was very warm. . . .
43% (46) In ATD - When Sookie sees Quinn in the hotel p 128 - I dropped Barry's hand and turned, my arms out already and my whole face smiling. "Quinn!" I said, and after a moment where he looked very uncertain, Quinn swung me up in his arms. I hugged him as hard as I could, and he returned the hug so emphatically that my ribs creaked. Then he kissed me, and it took all my strength of character to keep the kiss within social boundaries.

NOW, for the most difficult part. You may choose ONE overall favorite. It can be with any suitor and if your fave was left off, here is your chance to include it into the mix. Please reference the scene and suitor involved in a way that I cannot confuse it from another one - while you don't have to include the quote, please describe the scene. Using the descriptions above will be easiest. I should mention that these cannot be an imaginary kiss; it must come from the text and not our dreams - I know sad but true.
