Pash, Pick or Pass: Vampire Academy Guys

Pash, Pick or Pass is a feature/meme I've created that involves choosing, out of a group of three guys, who you'd pash (ie have a one-off, purely physical encounter with); who you'd pick for a long-term relationship; and who you'd pass on altogether. Each week I'll post new contenders, and I'd love it if everybody joins in! If you want to play, you can either state your opinion in the comments or create your own post (linking back to this blog) and pop it in the linky below. I use celebs to represent what the characters look like to me, but feel free to add your own interpretation of the guys if you create your own post (which can be on any day of the week, by the way - you don't have to do it on the same day). Here's who we're playing with this week...

The Contenders
After all the (friendly) fighting over Dimitri Belikov in my book boyfriend post last week, I thought what better way to settle it then to create the chance for everyone to pick him by playing Pash, Pick or Pass with the guys from Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series?! The only catch is, of course, you also have to choose who out of this titillating trio you'd pash and - perhaps more difficult - pass on.

Adrian Ivashkov        Dimitri Belikov        Christian Ozera
My Choices

Pash: Adrian, because he's sexy and sweet but so messed up that I couldn't deal with being in a relationship with him. That and, well, he's no Dimitri. But I'd make sure he brushes his teeth before the pash because he's a grotty smoker.

Pick: Dimitri, of course! He'd hot, smart, funny and would come in handy when I wake up in the middle of the night freaking out about robbers. Oh, and he does things "that'll make you lose control within seconds". Yes, please.

Pass: Christian. I like the way he's a bit twisted but also sensitive and caring, but he just ain't for me.


  1. Oh what a hard choice! I think I would pick Christian (especially if he looks like Jackson Rathbone), pash Dimitri, and pass Adrian. Hard choice b/c I love them all - especially Dimitri. But I do love Christian's darkness and good nature.

  2. Hm. Pash Adrian, he'd be fun for a night, but that's just too much crazy to keep.

    Pick Dmitri, and get one of those sex charms while I'm at it.

    Pass Christian. He'd be great as a pash or a pick, though, if the others were busy.

  3. Oh good one this week! Pash Adrian (do you remember that makeout scene from the book #5 HAWT), pick Dimitri he is protective and sexy, pass on Christian (nice guy but no competition for those two).

  4. I can't believe I almost missed out on this one! Breaking the rules a bit today :)

    Pash: Dimitri
    Pick: Dimitri
    Pass: Everybody else.

    I never did understand the Adrian thing and I really like Christian but Moroi just don't cut it against a super hot Russian Dhampir.

    Great post as always!

    I'm not familiar with these three fellows at all, so I'm afraid I can't answer. =(

    But I did want to comment on your use of the word "pash"! It's one of the more effective neologisms I've come across for the kind of kissing it's supposed to mean, and I wish it were better known. =)

  6. Haha I think it must be an Aussie thing - the English "snog", we "pash". :-D

    I learned it New Zealand, actually. ;-) I hope that doesn't make me a pariah on your blog!

  8. Haha that's OK, we have a pretty similar vernacular ;-)

  9. I would pick Adrian because he is sooo sweet and totally crazy in a hot way.
    I would pash Christian because I always had a thing for him.
    I would pass on Dimitri because he is hot and all but he really annoys me.
