I love tags.
Even when I’m not tagged (no salt on this blog because I only put that on my fries).
Anyway, today is such a spectacular evening here- it’s raining heavily, there’s thunder and lightening and heavy, cold winds and we’re getting take out food for dinner and I’m just so happy. I love storms, gray skies, thunder and rains. I don’t think I properly trust anyone whose favorite weather is sunny days and clear skies. I mean, I get it (theoretically) but… dude? Why? (Or maybe I’m just being judgmental because I live in India and we don’t like heat here and all we fucking get is heat so go figure).
So, now that I have successfully ranted about topics that have absolutely nothing to do with this post, let’s get on with the tag, shall we? I wasn’t tagged to do this but I saw this post on Steph’s blog- Lost: Purple Quill, so go check it out! I also read Kyera’s Library’s take on it and it was so much fun!
How It Works:
- You write down the names of 30 fictional characters on pieces of paper.
- You pick two names at a time and answer each of the 15 questions. For each question one of the two characters will be the one you believe fits best and the other is “not good enough”.
YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MORE SPOT ON YOUR SPELLING BEE TEAM, WHO WOULD YOU PICK TO COMPLETE YOUR TEAM?
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles Vs. Andrew Minyard from The Foxhole Court
Wow. Okay, um, I want to choose Andrew so bad for this because I know for a fact that he would definitely be better at this than Cinder because he’s just a closeted brilliant person (and he’s got episodic memory or something) but I’m gonna go ahead and choose Cinder because Andrew wouldn’t care for a stupid spell bee. He’ll just stare at the audience with a bored look (if he even decides to get on the stage); also, Cinder would just be the smart and passionate person I need for my team.
BOTH CHARACTERS WANT TO KILL YOU, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU KILL FIRST SO THAT YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVING?
Ron Weasley from Harry Potter Vs. Rose Hathaway from Vampire Academy
Yeah, that’s a no brainer- I’d definitely kill Rose first. She can cripple me in 2.5 seconds so I’m not taking my chances against her and also, I like to believe that I can take out Rose Hathaway. Maybe Ron and I can go on a picnic after that instead of fighting to death (I’m pretty sure he’ll give in after I tempt him with some Indian sweets).
YOU’RE ON THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE AND YOU’RE DOWN TO THESE TWO CHARACTERS, WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE YOUR ROSE TO?
Cath from Fangirl Vs. Blue Sargent from The Raven Boys
Ooh, this is a hard one. On one hand, Cath is just like me with all her nerdiness and fandom obsessions and Blue is, well, Blue. She’s so frickin’ interesting and weird. Actually, screw this shit, I want Cath and Blue to be an item. Can you imagine? Blue would be all about going out, having adventures and finding lost Kings and Cath would just be like, “Um, I’m just gonna… sit here with my laptop but go right ahead and get yourself inevitably killed.”
YOU’VE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE HUNGER GAMES, WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY VOLUNTEER IN YOUR PLACE?
Gansey from The Raven Boys Vs. Kate Harker from This Savage Song
This is interesting. Gansey isn’t your stereotypical self sacrificing character but I’m pretty sure that he’ll step in to volunteer on behalf of his friends whereas Kate would do it just to get a kick out it. So, I’m going to go with Kate because, like I said, she’d do it just for the sake of fighting and end up winning.
YOU’RE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND, WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU SACRIFICE TO ENGAGE IN CANNIBALISM?
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games Vs. Thomas Cresswell from Stalking Jack The Ripper
Even though Thomas is the downright meal here (I’m sorry but he is), I’m going to have to go with Katniss, partly because I’m not the biggest fan of her character- but mostly because she’d be terrible company to be alone with if I kill Cresswell first. I mean, logically, she has experience with survival so she’d be the smarter option to keep alive if I want to get out of there but, really, I’d rather die with Thomas’s banter to keep me company.
YOU’RE THE NEXT DC/MARVEL SUPERHERO (WITH YOUR OWN TV SHOW, OF COURSE), WHO IS YOUR SIDEKICK?
Kaz Brekker from Six Of Crows Vs. Haymitch from The Hunger Games
Okay, in which Alternate Universe is Kaz bloody Brekker my sidekick? How is that even possible? I don’t think that’d be possible. As much as I would love that, I would go with the surprising choice here and choose Haymitch because oh my god, I so want to read a book with Haymitch as someone’s sidekick. Can you imagine his bored, devil-may-care attitude and constant ridiculous banter with the main character along with random bouts of brilliance? Sign. Me. Up.
YOU’RE A MANAGER OF AN AVOCADO ADMIRING COMPANY, WHO WOULD YOU FIRE FOR LACK OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS?
Simon from The Mortal Instruments Vs. Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments
Firstly, I love this question. Secondly, there is no way that Jace is taking avocado sales seriously. He’d be too busy cracking every single avocado joke that exists. So, yes, sorry Jace but you’re getting fired. Also, Simon would probably love that job, if only ironically.
YOU’VE JUST FINISHED A BOOK IN WHICH YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTER DIES, WHICH CHARACTER IS MOST LIKELY TO COMFORT YOU?
Kevin from The Foxhole Court Vs. Sadie Kane from The Red Pyramid
Wow, neither of them are particularly touchy-feely but Sadie is definitely more empathetic than Kevin so I’m gonna go with her.
UGH, IT’S HIGH SCHOOL, WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY BE PART OF THE POPULAR CLIQUE?
Nina Zenik from Six Of Crows Vs. Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson series
Ooh, although both Nina and Annabeth have a penchant to be noticed, Nina would be more fitted to be in the popular clique whereas Annabeth would end up with the nerds.
THE DAY HAS ARRIVED; YOU’RE FINALLY A YEAR OLDER! WHO WOULD HAVE THE NERVE TO FORGET YOUR BIRTHDAY?
Baz from Carry On Vs. Skulduggery Pleasant from Skulduggery Pleasant series
Skulduggery is too smart and observant to forget a birthday even though he wouldn’t make a big deal about it. Baz is more likely to just not care about a date that much.
YOU’VE JUST FOUND AN UP AND COMING BOOKTUBE STAR, WHO WOULD IT MOST LIKELY BE?
Laia from An Ember In The Ashes Vs. Nicky from The Foxhole Court
Laia already loves to read so I’m going to pick her. She just completely has the whole booktube vibe down. Although, I would actually sell my firstborn to see Nicky have a booktube channel; his reviews would be absolutely hilarious. Hell, forget booktube, just give him any channel and he has my subscription.
SLEEPOVER TIME! UNFORTUNATELY YOU CAN ONLY INVITE ONE PERSON, WHO WOULD YOU INVITE?
Jude from The Cruel Prince Vs. Elias from An Ember In The Ashes
Again, I want Jude and Elias to have a sleepover where, instead of watching movies in pajamas and painting their nails, they’d discuss sparring strategies and challenge each other to a duel.
BAM, YOU’RE PREGNANT. WHO’S THE FATHER/MOTHER?
Mara Dyer from The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer Vs. Adam Parrish from The Raven Boys
Adam would be the sweetest dad ever so I’m gonna go ahead and pick him. Mara would actually be a lil bit weird as a mother (I mean, no shit) but she’d be a fierce one for sure.
YOU’VE JUST WRITTEN A SUPER IMPORTANT TEXT. WHO WOULD ‘SEE’ IT, BUT NOT REPLY?
Adrian Ivashkov from Bloodlines Vs. A.I.D.A.N. from Illuminae
I mean…. AIDAN would be designed to reply by default. Also, he’d be the perfect… entity (?) to go through the text as it (?) would give me the best feedback. Adrian would just make a smartass comment (I mean, same).
YOU’VE JUST WOKEN UP AND IT’S TIME FOR BREAKFAST. YOUR MUM’S BEEN REPLACED BY WHOM?!
Kady Grant from Illuminae Vs. Leo Valdez from The Heroes Of Olympus series
I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE LEO AS A MOM. YES, PLEASE, MOTHER.
So, this was fun! I’m glad I got to try this out.
