Pick a Side! Team Vampire Lumberjack or Team Werewolf Bootlegger?


Author-duo extraordinaire Moira Rogers wants to know which is awesomest, Vampire Lumberjack or Werewolf Bootlegger?  In fact, they are hosting a contest at their website and asking bloggers to weigh in on all the potential awesomeness that could happen with these two characters!  The contest is in honor of Sanctuary Unbound (releasing today) which features said Vampy Lumberjack and A Safe Harbor (releasing July 13th) featuring a sly Wolfie Bootlegger.  Admittedly, I had to think about this one.  If given the simple choice of Vamp vs. Wolfie, I would probably go Vamp.  To me, Vamps just ooze sex appeal.  I picture perfectly quaffed hotties that stepped right out of GQ.  But when you throw in such unique professions…how does one decide?  Well, when I make life-altering, earth-moving decisions like this one, I often draw from past experiences.  What do I know about lumberjacks?  Often tall, burly, have affinity for plaid flannel, like to treat logs like treadmills, like nature (ick).  Do I find this hot? Eh, maybe.  Okay, what experience do I have with lumberjacks?     …Not much.  In fact, the only thing that comes to mind is Will Ferrell in Step Brothers.  “I have traveled 500 miles to give you my seed! Rawrrrr!”   See video below. 

Don’t get me wrong, I adore Will Ferrell.  But do I want a Will Ferrell lumberjack love scene? Nope.  Moving on.  What comes to mind for Bootleggers? Pinstripe suits, wingtip shoes, Speakeasies, Moonshine, drinking inside or on secret Speakeasy balconies.  Now this I can work with!  What experience do I have with Bootleggers?  Well, Brad Pitt was a bootlegger in Legends of the Fall. 

Yummmm.  It’s kind of hard to separate Bootleggers from Mobsters, so let me brainstorm those as well.  And Warren Beatty (Vintage Warren of course) played Bugsy Seagle. 

Yummmm.  Johnny Depp played John Dillinger (it’s a stretch I know, but I should get bonus points for finding a way to get Johnny Depp in a post about Bootleggers and Lumberjacks!!). 

 Yummmm.  Yep, I think the choice is clear here.  I am Team Werewolf Bootlegger! Bring on the pinstripes!  (No need to remind me of James Gandolfini, Joe Pesci, or any other fug mobster.  I am perfectly happy with my selective memory and extreme shallowness!)

    Haha, I was thinking that the picture they used for the Weres looked like Johnny Depp! Mmmm Johnny…. But I’m a Team Vampire Lumberjack member here.

    Yessss, another Team Werewolf fan.

    All I gotta say is this. Plaid with pasty white skin? Somehow that doesn’t sound very fashionable.

    You’re sleeping with a DEAD BODY ladies, I think ya’ll need to reevaluate your decision.

    TEAM WEREWOLF BOOTLEGGER for the WIN!!! So what if his career choices of have put him on the wrong side of the law…more than likely with his werewolf metabolism, the alcohol would have very little effect on him!

    Now, if anybody ever needed a reason to come over to the bootlegger side Brad Pitt would be reason numero uno!

    I’m a Team Werewold Bootlegger supporter too! Sorry but I prefer a man in shirt and suit than in a plaid and I prefer a warm muscled body than an icy popsicle. Werewolf for me please! 🙂

    I’m team Werewolf all the way, got to root for my namesake.

    Besides I’d rather have a live, hot body than a dead, cold ok undead, cold one whether they look good in plaid or not. Where are they seeing any vampires in plaid anyway I haven’t seen one picture except for the short ugly vamp in plaid on someones page?

    YOU GO WEREWOLVES!!! I’ll take Johnny I love him in the picture above.

    Team Vampire Lumberjack
    That dark, sexy mysterious dude. I know wearing plaid flannel isn’t vogue, but since that is what I grew up around, its fine with me

    Still going on the Lumberjack Vampire side.. Especially since Jackyl (and Jesse James Dupree was so damn hot during my teens) did a song about Lumberjacks!

    For the sake of sides, I have to go Team Vampire Lumberjack. Nothing says sexy like a man jacking some lumber. (Ohhh the images.)
    No promises but I might reconsider with the right incentive. SKIN! 🙂
    I can’t wait to add both of these to my collection!

    I come from a long line of lumberjacks. I’ll take the family biz and some pesky soul issues over the uncontrolled furry and controlled substances.
    Go Team Vampire Lumberjack!

    A new team, a civil war, a revolution!!!
    Team Werevamp Wolfjack
    YES!!! I agree I want both too, yeah, the start of a new revolution, I’d love to be in the middle between these two sexy men, a new team. I’m with you, team Werevamp wolfjack, how does that sound?
    I had just started to post the following on some of the blogs starting with Blackravens.
    I can be a trouble maker, I want both, shame on me huh,blame it on some really good posts numbering the wolf advantage of being able to be out at all times of the day and the fact that he’s warm and really alive and can share a real meal of food. Although the wolfie can take care of me 24/7 and the vamp can only manage about half, maybe they won’t mind sharing, I wouldn’t mind it. After all why can’t I have my cake and eat it too.
    Hope everyone doesn’t want to stake me out but I really want both.
    Viva le revolution, for those that to switch to both, come join us, make your voice heard. This is a war after all!!

    yep I totally agree Tean Werewolf is hot.

    Jun 13, 2010 @ 08:56:24

    I agree, I’m Team werewolf bootlegger. I just can’t get over the fact vampires are dead, and a cold, dead vampire just can’t match a warm-blooded werewolf. And you are right, bootlegger are much sexier than lumberjacks.

    Team werewolf all the way! I need a good snuggle buddy! Vampires are a bit too cold for me! I like ’em nice and hot 😉 Also, there is nothing sexy about a dead guy. Sorry vampire lovers!

    Jun 14, 2010 @ 00:13:20

    Though i like werewolves, I have a soft spot for vamps. Go team vampire lumberjack :)!
