My Favorite Things

During the holiday season, The Sound of Music seemed to be on every channel.  I loved it as a kid... or at least the first half (I always had a hard time staying awake for the ending.)  The song that comes to mind whenever I think of the movie is, of course, My Favorite Things.  This got me to thinking about my favorite things, or, at least, the favorite books I read.  So here is my little rendition, and apologies in advance because I'm about to ruin one of your favorite classic childhood songs:

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver, white winters that melt into springs

Nah....this is more like it:

Ghosts in white dresses with blood dripping sashes
Marauders and slayers who turn demons to ashes
 Huge killer werewolves thanks to Stephen King...

These are a few of my favorite things.  

Bright copper bloodstains and whiskers on hellhounds
Hot fallen angels and trackers who are
Blood Bound
Flesh eating zombies the apocalypse brings...

These are a few of my favorite things

Steampunk, necromancy,  shapeshifters in action
Wide spread epidemics and Dystopian factions
A boy named after a number who makes my heart sing...

These are a few of my favorite things.

A pretty young girl who can kill with her hands

Arrogant wolves who were once in a band

The boy with the bread who left my pulse racing...

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites. When the bee stings.
Sparkly Vampire love. The hybrid baby they’re so proud of:

These things make me sad...
 but I simply remember my favorite things...
