3rd Annual #NameThatButt: Round 7.5 Double Butt FINALE!

These full buttsides are a little bit trickier than our usual angles -- but(t) beggars can't be choosers when friends import backsides from foreign countries for your blog fun and games! (seriously the best crop this year!)

BEHOLD:


Again, these butts were photographed by Thomas G. Hale, and belong to him!
Please do not reuse without permission!

And your final clue:

These butts shared everything -- including death. When one of these butts was mortally wounded, the other insisted upon sharing his (perhaps) IMMORTALITY, that they might never be parted, even then.
Drop your guesses in the comments! And make sure to also grab your bonus two points by Naming That Book from the Bonus Quote over at blog.amaliacarosella.com! (and you'll find a cut scene from the book you're naming, too, for some extra finale fun!)

Forged by Fate (Fate of the Gods, #1) Tempting Fate (Fate of the Gods, #1.5) Fate Forgotten (Fate of the Gods, #2) Taming Fate (Fate of the Gods, #2.5) Beyond Fate (Fate of the Gods, #3)

3rd Annual #NameThatButt: Round 7, DOUBLE BUTT FINALE!!!!

It's the round you've all been waiting for! BUT(T) FIRST, the reveal of the punultibutt:

NEPTUNE




And now, the majestic TWIN* butts of our Double Butt Finale!
(Also don't forget you can find the rules here.)


These butts are courtesy of and belong to Thomas G. Hale.
Please do not reuse without permission!
Your Clues:

  • As mentioned above, these are TWIN (heroic) butts! (Or, according to some, half of a set of quadruplets!)
  • Though they came from the same womb, these butts may not have had the same father, resulting in different... attribut(t)es for each. 

And be sure to tune in tomorrow to blog.amaliacarosella.com for some Bonus Quote action! But don't forget that you must name BOTH butts (though you don't need to know which butt belongs to whom) in order to get full points!
