X – Extremest Exit – Literary Smackdown #AtoZChallenge 2016
We are but three days from the end of the AtoZChallenge as we take on letter X. For our Literary Smackdown today we are asking you to vote for the Extremest Exit. We have chosen the exit of various characters from two different books and we would like you to vote for the one that shocked you the most.
- The Red Wedding (A Song of Ice and Fire)
This has to be one of the most extreme events in fantasy history where a ridiculous number of people are masacred at a wedding. The cover story is that it is revenge against King Robb for breaking a marriage with House Frey. The wedding becomes a slaughter and it’s all really orchestrated by a Lannister.
- The Death of Boromir (Fellowship of the Ring)
We all know Boromir was struggling against the power of the one ring, but getting himself killed was more than a bit of a shock. Heroes with problems don’t die until they have resolved those problem, but poor Boromir did. I know his death has scarred more than one childhood, and that has to be worth a vote.
