SFF Tinder profiles

As Valentine’s Day approaches, and thoughts turn to romance, we thought it’d be fun to imagine how some of our favorite science fiction & fantasy characters might promote themselves on Tinder.

We’ve started you off with a couple of our own (click image to embiggen). Now it’s your turn. Write a “Facts About Me” paragraph for any SFF character’s Tinder profile. Add as many as you like and we’ll choose our favorite to win a book from our stacks. We look forward to seeing how your characters put themselves out there…

    S, age is is just a number.

    Everyone tells me my eye is my most notable feature. I want to find someone who would enjoy being spiritually consumed by me, a helpmeet who will give me the support I need in dominating all of Middle Earth. I’m really not complicated. My needs and wants are pretty simple and straightforward. I think if we all give each other enough room and space to grow and evolve we’ll all get along. But I have to be respected. Isn’t that just fundamental decency? Anyway, if subservience to my total domination sounds cool, give me a holler. No fatties, please.

  4. Hahaha! I love the internet!

    Geder – 25

    I love to read and discover the truth about the past. I’m not the most athletic guy, but I have been to war and brought a city to its knees. I’m a bit lonely, but have a definite type. So, if you’re not skinny and pale please swipe left. Just a heads up: if we do meet up, I’ll be with my best friend and high priest – don’t worry about him, he’ll just be standing over in the corner. And please don’t break my heart… I just might have to murder everybody you’ve ever cared about if you do. Cheers!

  7. Thank you Marion! I got the book!
