This week’s question:
Fight Club! Heroine v. Heroine. Pick your two favorite
kick-ass book heroines and pit them against each other.
Who would win?
In this corner, the unlikely kick-ass heroine Elizabeth Bennet, from Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth may not literally kick your ass with her hands or feet, but her wit and intelligence will leave you so discombobulated that you won’t realize that you’ve lost until it’s too late. She put a beat down on Lady Catherine de Bourgh and on Miss Bingley, two formidable opponents. She also snared Mr. Darcy. <Insert heavy sigh here> Even more importantly, Mr. Darcy loved her for who she was, imperfections and all, and, unlike a lot of women, Elizabeth did not change to get the man. She changed when she wanted and how she wanted.
And in this corner, Eponine, the kicking-assiest character EVER, from Les Misérables. I know some may think that Eponine is weak – she pines for a man who will never love her, and she helps him with his assignations with the woman he does love – but to me, Eponine is a total kick-ass. SHE determines how she will live. SHE determines how she will die. She loves Marius, and even though he does return her love, she chooses how she will deal with it.
I realize these are not traditional kick-ass heroines in the Katniss Everdeen vein, but they both kick lots of ass. I don’t know which one would win, but whichever one does, it will be on her terms.
Who are your kick-ass heroines, and which one would win in a fight?
