The Iron King: Team Puck or Team Ash?

So of course, like most fantasy written for YA, the Iron King supports in the art of something called "A Love Triangle". It's a smart thing to do in novels, because like I said in this post, it creates tension between two characters and everybody likes some good tension.
     Guess what? I am a proud supporter of Team Puck, thank-you very much. I hink almost everybody I've seen has been team Ash, but I guess it's based solely on preference. Why do I like Puck better? Well I like him better mainly because I'm thinking about who's a better person to be with. Sure Ash is hot and cold as stone, but Puck seems like a funner person to be around. Plus, he has "a grin like a fox" and there's nothing more attractive than a fox-like grin. 
 It's wierd, because I was expecting to like Ash more but in my opinion, Ash is a little bland. I'm not going to lie and say I'm not curious about him; I want to see under his thick layer of protection and get to know the real him, but I don't know. I just love Puck so much. He's always looking out for her, you know?  I do like Ash, though. Don't get me wrong. He's just a very typical sort of love interest, and being handsome just makes him all the more typical.
I have a petpeeve, though and I'm guessing it comes in to play when I'm deciding who to like better of the two boys. I absolutely hate when guys are perfect looking. Is that bad? I'm sorry, but I can't deal with it. I'd think a red head with a mouth too small for his face is cuter than a blonde with the perfect nose, lips and eyes. (As long as the red head had nice lips). It's so wierd. I could care less about physical stuff (once again other than lips) although I'm in love with jawlines, noses and lips. Still. I'm team PUCK!

Are you Team Ash? Get a cute little "Team Ash" picture here! :)


Until next time.


  1. I am a new follower and wanted to stop by and show my Team Ash love. :D

  2. Haha, well thanks for following!
    I like them both...but I'm team Puck ;).

  3. I'm totally Team Puck! Maybe it's just that I'm a sucker for the best friend - but she's known Puck practically her whole life. Their feelings are based on more than just physical attraction. And Puck isn't as moody as Ash. He likes Meghan and he's not afraid to say it. Sure he gets grumpy sometimes, but it's cute, and he never tries to run Meghan off "for her own good." I'm getting so sick of the dangerous guy who's trying to alienate the girl because he knows what's best for her. I will say though that Ash grew on me in The Iron Daughter. There was a lot more depth to him and more development of the interaction between him and Meghan. Still, Team Puck baby =)

  4. PUCK!!!!!! He's so perfect and interesting. He's funny, and fun. He has a sarcastic sense of humor i love, and is the comic relief of situations. He really, deeply loves Meghan, though he doesn't show it very much out there, because he knows she doesn't love him in the same way. He hurts though, and it frustrates, and saddens him, and you know especially when his humor takes a bitter turn. He hides all his true, scarred feelings behind his sarcastic facade, and tries not to let anyone see it. Some, fall for it, but we all know it's there. He's so interesting, and perfect lol. Not to mention I am a sucker for green eyes (favorite color), and I love apples. Clearly we were meant to be. It's ok if Puck and Meghan don't end up together...I'm always available xD
