In honor of Affliction, by Laurell K. Hamilton, I'm showing some Juan Valdez love to Anita Blake. http://www.laurellkhamilton.org/
Those who read this series know that coffee is a main priority in her day to day zombie raising life. She believes that your first cup of coffee should always be black. In her world, it's near impossible to ruin a pot of coffee, even though some seem to try.
I have all but three of the series, plus the Merry Gentry series, and I'm rereading them (for the third time). I also listen to the audiobooks while I drive around town. I adore this series and almost everything about it. Sigh, she completes me. Wink, wink.
So, in my mind, they're having a release party and the gag is to buy each other coffee mugs. This is due to their affection for Anita. Here's the cups that were given out and by whom:
Bert Vaughn dropped this off for Anita (of course, he didn't stay):
Lawrence Kirkland gave Anita this:
Zerbrowski picked out this one for Anita:
Asher gave Anita this one:
Damian was shy about buying this one for Anita, but Jason dare him into it:
Jean Claude was proud of this choice:
Can you figure out who gave her this one?
Truth and Wicked went in on this:
Jason was happy to present this one:
Richard bought this one and he was actually smiling when he handed it to her:
Cherry and Zane just had to buy this one:
Nathaniel served her coffee in this one, once everyone arrived:
Micah left this one in the restroom for Anita when she went to get ready for the party:Raphael brought this from his people:
Narcissus had this delivered to Anita and it gave her the creeps:
Anita was surprised to get this from Shang-Da and Jamil:
Edward picked out this for Anita:
Dolf left this at the door but Nathaniel was hiding it:
Here's what Anita purchased for a few of her people:
Anita bought this for London but slipped it to him when no one was looking:
She got this one for Jean Claude:
Micah got this from Anita:
Anita bought all of these for Richard but had no idea which to give him because, as you know, they have a touchy relationship:
Which do you think is best and why?
She purchased this one for Damian:
She had to get this one for Zebrowski:
Who do you think gave these and to whom?:
To all the Anita Blake fans out there, stay zombielicious.
