A.S. King Has a Posse

You totally rock. Yes you.
Technically, just for taking a minute to play, you are all in my posse. When we arrive on the scene to rescue someone, I will stand up on my horse, aim my sword for an eye and say: "I am SQUID! And this is my posse. Mind your eye!"

Thank you all for playing. Our judges had a hard time picking a winner, but after a few smackdowns, we all decided that Stephanie W. was our winner with this entry:
My personal posse nickname would totally be The Dewey Decimator (I mean, I'm a librarian so I need an awesome library nickname!). Pretty sure I'd let you call me Dewey Dee for short.

My motto...I keep going back and forth between DFTBA (Don't Forget To Be Awesome = nerdfighter for life) and Bazinga! I totally think we would scream D-F-T-B-AAAAAAAA while going into battle against evildoers and not-so-awesome people.

I'm a pretty blunt person so I'm not to keen on lying, instead I'm more of a brazen truth kinda gal BUT I would probably lie to you if there was a giant T-Rex behind you running at full speed and there was just no chance that you would make it and you asked me "Is something wrong?". I'd probably lie and be like, ''s all good'. Because as your sidekick, I'd rather you not see teeth and T-Rex throat as your last living vision but rather my face. Just saying. (=
I have to say, Dewey Dee, As much as I love DFTBA, your suggestion of BAZINGA! totally cracked me up, I think evildoers wouldn't take us seriously and I think that's the perfect way to disarm them right before we strike. BAZINGA! BAZINGA! I think it's going to be my new awesome word.

What I loved most about this entry was the last answer. If hanging around with you means I get to see a T-Rex, even if it kills me, I'm all for it. And I would totally be okay with you not lying to me in the situation you wrote about, by the way. If I'm about to get eaten, just distract me.

Thank you again to all entrants! You are all part of the A.S. King posse and can yell whatever you like when attacking evildoers of all types. (Loved Mittsu's "Look behind you!" too.) If you lost, don't despair! Go here and sign up for the final ARC giveaway on Goodreads. Giveaway starts tomorrow.
