Wereland: Queen of Hearts


This Character Connection post is part of Helluva Halloween Character Connection hosted by The Introverted Reader whereby one must...

The challenge:
Write a post (non-bloggers can use each week's comments) about any character from a horror/thriller type novel OR a villain from any type of book. I'm talking about the real baddies on that villain thing. I know horror/thriller is a gray area, so if you think it's appropriate for Halloween, I'll count it.

You too, can join this contest which ends Oct 30, 2010. Enter here for week 3.

Queen of Hearts

My pick this week is this MAD MAD MAD woman.

Queen of Hearts: The Queen of Hearts is a foul-tempered monarch, that Lewis Carroll himself pictured as "a blind fury", and who is quick to decree death sentences at the slightest offense. Her most famous line, one which she repeats often, is "Off with their heads!"

One of the Queen's hobbies - besides ordering executions - is croquet, however it is Wonderland croquet, where the balls are live hedgehogs and the mallets are flamingoes.


This Queen lives in Wonderland across the border from Wereland.

If you find yourself in Wonderland take heed of my warnings...

She likes her tarts, so don't even think about them.

Off with his head!

She won't put up with much guff from anyone.

Off with her head!

She is relentless and you won't be able to get a word in edgewise.

Off! OFf! OFF!

Possibly the only redeeming quality is that she has the makings of an excellent zombie slayer!

Off with its head!

  1. zombie slayer?! LOL Great post! XD

  2. I wonder if the Queen of Hearts name is Catherine. All this "off with the head" business seems familiar.... LOL

  3. The problem is, she is too busy eating tarts, to take the time to hunt zombies.

  4. I don't think she'd make a good zombie slayer. Mind you: she always tells others to do the head removal.

  5. @sullivan - good point, mayhaps the Queen would be a good team leader for zombie slayers - she won't put up with slackers and only have the best slayers on her team ;-D

  6. I love tarts! :D

    And zombie slayer or not, I still think I could take her out!!!

  7. I thought you were right on with the zombie slayer thing until I read Sully's comment. I think he has a point. Maybe she's a zombie herself and she's after some brains. Ya think?

  8. @Jen - like that twist - the Queen is a zombieeeeeee

  9. Well the fact that to kill zombies you have to go for the head and she has that head chomping thing going for her... I agree, definitely a zombie slayer.

  10. She would make a great zombie slayer as long as her minions held out
