STARLIGHT SATURDAY


A CUPID INTERVIEW


My guests today are, the very famous Ichabod Crane and Brom Bones – please, have a seat on our lovely couch! – from the village of Tarry Town which is right next to the notorious Sleepy Hollow. Their tale can be found in THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW a novel creation of the classic story as retold by Deanna Wadsworth.

Before we begin, I must remind everyone to please try and keep your responses to a PG13 atmosphere – the Moonlight Mistresses rules, not mine *eye roll*. Double entendres are acceptable and widely encouraged for events and phrases we don’t want our young readers to really know about. Oooh, it will be so much fun trying to guess what you’re really saying!

Ichabod: Well, I suppose that means I will probably have to do all the talking.

Brom: And that is different how? *chuckles at Ichabod’s wry look*

*Settling comfortably onto the sofa, draping his arm over the back and sipping his bubbly* That Miss Havana in Reaper’s Domain is one hot teacher and boy would I love to get into her…class! I might actually learn something…oh…did I say that out loud? *Clears throat* Sorry. Let’s get back to the interview.

You two make one fine pair! I did a wonderful job pairing you two up if I do say so myself! Then, I just love all of my matches!

Cupid: Please, Ichabod, tell our readers how you two first met. Was it by your design, or hers?

Ichabod: Firstly, Cupid I don’t believe you had anything to do with our match since there are no such thing as a Cupid. The only one to blame was Brom Bones himself.

Brom: *bows* Some of my best work.

Cupid: >*ignoring Ichabod’s jibe* Brom, would you say it was love at first sight or did you find him repulsive?

Brom: Well, I wouldn’t have gone to such elaborate means if I found him repulsive *laughs* But I sure did love tormenting him. One time I smoked out his school house. You should have seen how he yelled.

Ichabod: Positively incorrigible *pretends to be blustering but can’t hide his smile*

Cupid: This one’s for both of you. Since chaotic happenstance tends to put characters like yourselves in situations where they must work together or live together for one reason or another, tell us what chaotic happenstance “forced” the two of you to work or live together. How did you feel about this?

Ichabod: Brom kidnapped me while impersonating the Headless Horseman! I can tell you that chaotic happenstance had nothing to do with it. Brom is a schemer. He planned the entire ruse, even tying me to his bed, just to gain my attention

Brom: *laughing* Well, how else was I to let you know how I felt about you? You ignored me at every chance. You see, Cupid, ours was a love/hate sort of association. A battle of who should be on top…if you will.

Ichabod: That, I suppose, is a very interesting way to put it, Brom.

Cupid: This one is also for both of you. How long did it take you to know your true feelings for the other? At what point did you know, “this is the one”?

Brom: The first time I saw Ichabod leaving a certain Inn in Tarry Town, I knew he must be mine. There was never a doubt in my mind. I only had to devise a way to make Ichabod see that I was right.

Ichabod: Which is why you had to chase me on that dreadful black horse of yours, instead of just approaching me like a normal person.

Brom: *gives Ichabod a lecherous wink* All that scheming is why you love me.

Ichabod: Yes, I must truly be as mad as you. I knew that Brom and I would be together the day we schemed to smite the Headless Horseman. It was really one of our best schemes to date. The entire night I was sure that Brom was secretly working with Miss Katrina Van Tassel. But when he turned down her hand in marriage and all her wealth *smiles at Brom* well, then I knew.

Cupid: Ichabod, what would you say was your biggest obstacle to overcome before you could settle into a relationship with Brom?

Ichabod: You see, Brom was always playing one trick on me after another. So I had to be sure that his affection was not just another elaborate trick. When I learned his antics were really nothing more than the actions like rotten boys in my classes who stick a girl’s pigtail in the ink well to get her attention, then I realized his affection was true.

Brom: That wooden paddle didn’t hurt, either.

Ichabod: *blushing* Quiet about that!

Brom: *laughs loudly*

Cupid: This is for either of you. Would you like to thank anyone – other than me, of course – for getting you two together?

Brom: My horse Daredevil. If he weren’t the fastest beast in all of New York, I never would have been able to catch my prize

Ichabod: *shudders* Beastly animal. You should see it. It looks like it came from the pits of Hell

Cupid: I know our readers have enjoyed learning about you two so far, but I’m getting a little bored, so I’m going to heat things up. Ichabod, how would you end this sentence, "I wish Brom would _____?" *leans forward to eagerly hear your response*

Ichabod: You really are quite nosey.

Cupid: *sniff* I always knew you eighteenth century Puritans were prudes. Brom? Would you prefer to give Ichabod a bubble bath or a back massage? Why?

Brom: *scratches chin thoughtfully* Probably a massage. He makes the most delightful noises.

Cupid: How many of you remember that old show, The Dating Game? Well, these next questions are going to help us play a similar game. Ichabod, what would Brom say is your aphrodisiac? *waggles eyebrows*

Ichabod: *still embarrassed and flustered by Brom’s remark* Heavens, I don’t know. A bit of rope?

Cupid: *grinning* Brom? Is he right? How would you have answered that question?

Brom: *laughing* No, but I will make note of that. I would have said a buffet heavily laden with food. Ichabod has an appetite that borders on the voracity of an anaconda. A well fed Ichabod is a happy Ichabod, in every way.

Ichabod: *nods in acquiescence* True, true, Brom. But since the both of you are determined to be so gauche, I had assumed you would have answered more lewdly, Brom.

Cupid: *crosses ankles and rubs his chin* Well, let’s get a little—what did you call it, Ichabod?—more gauche. Brom, what would Ichabod say is a spot guaranteed to drive you crazy with passion? Is he correct in that assumption?

Brom: *looks at Ichabod* I probably am not allowed to answer that, am I?

Ichabod: You most certainly are not.

Cupid: Fair enough. The next two questions are for both of you. What's the most romantic thing your lover has ever done for you?

Ichabod: Brom would probably answer that his most romantic act was impersonating the Headless Horseman and spiriting me off to his hunting cabin to have his way with me

Brom: *laughing* I would

Ichabod: That would not be the answer though. He traveled all the way to Boston just a few weeks back and I knew nothing about his real plans. He had gone to acquire the services of a most famous chef. That woman can bake things you have never dreamed of.

Brom: *takes Ichabod’s hand in his* See? The way to his heart is through his stomach

Cupid: If you could change one thing about your relationship, what would it be?

Brom: That where we live, people might be more accepting of us as a couple. Right now all of our neighbors think we are cousins. It’s why we like to visit this time and chat with you folks on the internet. We can be ourselves

Ichabod: Well said, Brom. Hiding everything all the time is quite bothersome.

Cupid: I can imagine that would make things difficult. Have the two of you had time to settle into any Valentine's Day traditions?

Brom: None we are probably allowed to talk about in this interview. Not without—what did you call it?—keeping it PG-13

Cupid: Thanks to Ichabod Crane and Brom Bones for joining us today. We hope you’ll check out their story, THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW

Loving these Cupid interviews. Nicely don't you two. Hope you have a good weekend.

Deanna said...

Cupid, thanks for chatting with the boys. They sent their regards. :)

Maureen, I think Ichabod might have to go with Brom, he tends to get a mite jealous, though he would probably deny it LOL and Your pirates are awfully sexy!

Amara, thanks for stopping by and good luck!
