I cannot and will not ever turn down a chance to talk about book characters. Because of this, the You’re Not Good Enough book tag sounded like a lot of fun!
Basically, Bella and I came up with 15 of our own situational questions that we will then assign (randomly, of course) 2 characters to. We will then pick the character that would answer the question the most accurately. I realize that there are supposed to be specific questions to this tag, but we didn’t realize that! We’ll just say we added a bit of our own flair!
1. If you were asked on a date, who would you be most likely to say yes to?
Daemon Black -Lux Series
Robin Goodfellow (Puck) -A Midsummer Night’s Dream
As much as I don’t doubt that Puck would take me on a whirlwind of a date, Daemon Black is my soulmate. My one and only. If he asked me on a date, I would probably cry. Scratch that; I would most definitely cry. Besides, I don’t think the great Robin Goodfellow would want to take part in a practice as mediocre as a ‘date!’
2. If you were arrested, and could only make one call, whose number would you dial?
Maven Calore -Red Queen
Tuck Drake -Pitch Dark
This one was fairly obvious to me. I’m pretty sure Maven wouldn’t even pick up, so I’d go for Tuck. With all his old friends being dead and all, I’m sure he has a lot of free time on his hands, and would be more than willing to bail me out. Hopefully.
3. If it were the end of the world, who would you rather attempt to survive with?
Magnus Chase -Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard
Simon Snow- Carry On
This one was so hard! I love both of my beans, and would be happy to fight for my life with either of them! But, I mean, Magnus is kind of already dead. Does he eat? I honestly don’t remember. I’m going to go with Magnus, as he would be way more prepared for something like the apocalypse than Simon.
4. Which of the characters’ universes would you most like to be transported to?
Kaz Brekker -Six of Crows
Bellatrix Lestrange -Harry Potter
Would I rather go to the Wizarding World or the Grisha Universe? Hm, let me think about that. HARRY POTTER! I want to go to Hogwarts, and learn magic, and get sorted into Ravenclaw, and BE A WITCH. Plus, the Grisha Universe is pretty grim. There is a lot of poverty, and a lot of crime. It’s a politician’s world. At least in the Wizarding World, I’d have magic, and be accepted by the community. Grisha were feared more than they were celebrated in Six of Crows.
5. Which of the characters would you want narrating your life?
Penelope Bunce -Carry On
Sirius Black -Harry Potter
Sirius Black. 100%. He would be the best life narrator ever! I’m sure he would shamelessly roast all of the people in my life and make witty remarks about my less-than-exciting daily life. I feel that Sirius had a talent of making even the mundane absolutely remarkable.
I suppose he wouldn’t find my life to be very entertaining to narrate, though. With all the shenanigans he got into in his time, my life would be deemed as a disappointment!
6. Out of the characters, which would help you in a group project, and who would slack off?
Newt -The Maze Runner
Nina Zenik -Six of Crows
Is it bad that I feel like both of them would do nothing? I think Newt would take the whole thing as a joke, and Nina would try to get out of doing any work at all. So, if I had to choose, Newt would probably do more work. He’d be great at any presentation portion of a project.
7. If you were on the Bachelor/Bachelorette, who would you present the final rose to?
Luc -Lux Series
America Singer -The Selection Series
What’s kind of ironic is that America was in a version of the Bachelor franchise, in her own world. However, as it is evident in the series, she takes forever to finally come around, as she would be labeled a skeptic, in her own right. I love America, but I ship her so much with Maxon!
Luc would be a great fiance/husband, and he is also an alien, so there’s that. He could read my mind, and I don’t know if that’s exactly healthy in a relationship, either. Though, he does have a lot to his name, and is a freaking hot teenage mastermind.
I’d probably go for Luc, just so I could be apart of the Lux universe!
8.Who would you rather be stuck in a musical with?
Six -I Am Number Four Series
Baz Pitch -Carry On
Totally Baz. Without a doubt, I believe Baz’s theatrics are on-point. He has always been an edgy, fashionable, dramatic puppy, and that would play to his advantage in a musical. Also, I would pay actual money to hear Baz sing about Simon, so that only adds to my reasoning.
9. You have just finished a book in which your favorite character died. Who comforts you?
Katy Swartz -Lux Series
Carswell Thorne -Lunar Chronicles
Katy is probably a bigger bookworm than me, so she would definitely understand my pain better than Thorne would. He would probably think it was funny, now that I think about it. Yeah, he would totally make fun of me. Katy for the win!
10. Who is more likely to become a Plastic?
Alice Bell -The White Rabbit Chronicles
Nine -I Am Number Four
The Plastics, if you were not aware, are the group of uber-popular high school students in the movie Mean Girls. In regards to who would join them, I highly doubt Nine would, as he would think he was way too good for them. The Plastics probably vie after him. Ali, on the other hand, I could see being forced into it by her best friend, Kat, because she wanted the inside scoop. The only difference between this and Cady’s plan would be that Ali would end up telling them off, as she has better things to do than engage in their silly drama. (Like kill zombies, but that’s besides the point.)
So, probably Alice, but only because Kat wanted her to.
11. Who’s more likely to become famous for no reason?
Cal Calore -Red Queen
Cole Holland -The White Rabbit Chronicles
To be fair, they are both hot enough to become famous based on their abs alone. Alas, I can only pick one. Maybe Cal and Maven would become the next Dolan Twins, or something. I could totally see them as Instagram models. Plus, if they had their weird fire gauntlets, that would totally boost their fame. Yep, this is happening. Maven and Cal: The Fire Brothers. It’s perfect. Cal, it is, then.
12. Who would stay up all night to binge Disney movies with you?
Farley -Red Queen
Percy Jackson -Percy Jackson (duh)
Percy is a Disney/Pixar Freak, I am sure of it. He knows every song from all of the movies, and his favorite is Hercules. I’m calling it now. He cried during Toy Story 3 and Up. I have no doubts about it.
13. Who’s more likely to become Head Boy/Girl?
Professor Umbridge -Harry Potter
Augustus Waters -The Fault in Our Stars
I refuse to grant Umbridge any sort of award, so it goes to Augustus by default. He would make a lovely Head Boy, anyways. I’ve already seen what happened to Hogwarts under Umbridge’s rule, and would never willingly subject anyone to that form of torture.
14. Who is more likely to forget your birthday?
Nox -Dorothy Must Die
Evangeline Samos -Red Queen
TBH, I could see Nox forgetting my birthday. He’s kind of oblivious, and a simple date could slip his mind easily. Evangeline, on the other hand, has her crap together. If she actually liked me, I’m sure she wouldn’t forget it.
15. Who is more likely to win the Hunger Games?
Scythe Faraday -Scythe
Molly Weasley -Harry Potter
This very much depends on the limits to the character’s power. Would Molly have her magic? Would Scythe Faraday be able to be revived, since death is not final in his universe? If Molly had her magic, she would win on the first day! She could apparate and dissaparate at will, kill people with a simple, two worded spell, summon weapons and other items to her with one word, etc. Even the wise-beyond-his-years Scythe Faraday wouldn’t be able to avoid her wrath. After all, Molly needs to get home to her children.
