    I’m over 18 and live in the U.S. I’d picnic with Maddy. Felt like I wanted to be friends with her immediately. I make two things that complement each other well: a killer quinoa salad with broccoli florets, sliced grape tomatoes,parsley, cilantro with a lime juice dressing, and a mixed fresh fruit salad with peaches, blueberries, strawberries and banana slices, also with a slightly different lime and ginger sauce.

    I’m over 18 and live in the US. This is a fun one. But my picnic would be after sundown because I would totally want to meet and chat with Menolly, she is my favorite character. I would ask if Mario could whip up some enchanted blood that would go with the fried chicken I was bringing for myself. We could still have an awesome picnic by the water, (my family lives on the lake)and just chill. It is very relaxing.

    I would really enjoy going on a picnic with Delilah, and would ask if Ariel could join us. We would be taking a few bags of Cheetos and some of Iris’s cookies! We would sit for a bit down at Birchwater Pond and talk about the curiosity of cats!! While the conversation and the entertainment would be delightful, we’d pack up early so we could get some Jerry Springer tv time.

    I am 62 and live in Oklahoma. I would love to go on a picnic with Fury. I am so interested in her. She has so many facets to her personality and I want to listen to her talk about her life, the people she knows and how she feels about things. For Lunch I would bring cheese, crackers, fruit, and tea. Not to heavy if she had to leave to go chase an Abom. Plus that is my favorite type of picnic.

    I am 37 years old and live in Evans Ga, USA. My favorite character is Camille. I can relate to her and her fantasies. I love how her men are so protective they are just like my husband. They allow her to be the strong woman she is but also care for her like she is weak. Its such a great balance. I feel its a lot like my marriage. I would love to go on a picnic with her and her husbands and pick her brain for bedroom ideas. I think since she is allergic to seafood I would bring lots of fruit and hoagies. Lots of chips and cookies. I love desserts. Camille is awesome, strong, and a lot like me.

    I think that Delilah would be a fun pick to have a picnic with. I have a very feline personality and I’d try to coax her into shifting so that I could pet her. LOL! What I’d bring to the picnic…I’d bring some meat and cheese sandwiches – turkey, ham…maybe even some fried bologna sandwiches. LOL! Definitely bring a couple varieties of Cheetos, some homemade Tollhouse cookies, frosted lemon cookies and a sweet fruit pie, some sweet watermelon as a refresher, lemonade and tea and a bit of catnip for her to enjoy as well as a thank you for coming along. I’d probably even bring a brush just in case she does shift so that I could help her sort her fur out after playing with the catnip. LOL!

    The characters I so much want to go on a picnic are Maddy, and or Camille. I really fell for Camille in OW. So a picnic in OW would be fun. Bedlam is cozy sounding even with the mythos walking around. I think both Camille and Maddy need to meet. HA. I am not the best cook so a trip to the deli for supplies. I see a fruit tray, and possible some fried chicken. I also must bring drinkie drinks, so I hope the girls would like some wine coolers or something like that. For a dessert I can make cookies. I have these chocolate crackle cookies that are divine.

    I am about to be 50 so way past 18!! I am a US citizen and live in Eastern Washington. I would have to pick Iris to go on a picnic with. I am sure she would pack a better home cooked meal than I could so I would stuff a picnic basket with Yakima Valey wine, exotic fruit, a variety of cheeses, crusty French bread and a cornucopia of desserts (eclaires, mini tarts and cakes, cookies, fruit parfaits and chocolate croissants.

    I considered asking Smokey or Trillian but I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to speak or eat. Just stare!!

    She is such a strong interesting woman. Her life has had ups and downs but she has handled it all with an inner strength.
    With all of the allergy & sensitivity issues I would pack a picnic with alot of thought along those lines.
    Keeping it like but satisfying.
    Cheese, lunch meats, nuts. Lots of fresh fruits/ berries. A veggie assortment.
    Dessert would be a wonderful dark chocolate assortment.
    Sparkling water
    This would truly be so fun. I would love it!

My friends in high school gave me the nickname Kitten because they believe we are really similar, and she is one of my favorite characters. I feel she is shows a lot of growth and was a great model for a young reader who will be transitioning into adulthood. Although it would become a double date with my hubby and Shade. I don’t think we would leave them out of the fun afternoon.
