Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s meme is a back to school thing. While school wasn’t the most happy part of my life, this was a tough one to think about because there are so many fun characters! Who hasn’t daydreamed about being friends with a few? My dream team is a mix of characters of different ages, roughly 12-17. And, of course the number exceeds ten.
Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, Tyson, Leo Valdez and Grover from the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan. The table is already interesting with this variety!
Ron Weasly, Fred and George, Hermoine Granger, Luna Lovegood and Harry Potter from the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. Percy and Harry are the prophecy boys, I’m sure they’d have a lot to talk about. Annabeth and Hermoine – one of a kind; the rest of them together, cooking up things, can either be the most fun/dangerous group on the planet or somebody’s nightmare!
Josephine ‘Jo’ March from the Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott. I love her.
Jerusha ‘Judy’ Abbott from Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster. Judy and Jo would spend hours talking, both being writers. Books and Fun = Great Times. They would also be initiated into the modern world by the rest of the group and wouldn’t the interactions be unique?
Lyra Belacqua with Pantalaimon from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. Giving her company,
George with Timmy of The Famous Five by Enid Blyton. Both are tomboys who love to explore and get into trouble, not to mention Pan and Timmy would have their own fun.
With plenty of hilarity thrown in, the conversations would last years!
School was a long time ago, but there sure as hell are characters I want at my lunch table. These characters would not only be fun and make my life interesting, but they’ll also be really good friends. Of course the list will exceed 10 characters because there are just too many characters out there you want to be friend’s with.
Like Sapphire, Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, Tyson, Leo Valdez and Grover from the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan make my list too. They are some of the most amazing and fun characters.
Again similar to Sapphire, Ron Weasly, Fred and George, Hermoine Granger and Harry Potter from the Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling make it to my list. Ron’s awkwardness, Fred and George’s naughtiness, Hermione’s clever and intelligent nature and of course Harry’s strength and loyalty will make some of the most commendable friends. And I’m sure Annabeth and Hermione will probably be the best of friends. And Leo along with Fred and George will be a laughing riot at the table. Life won’t be boring at all with them.
Jacqueline and Lucas from Easy by Tammara Webber. I love them both. I might have to deal with some PDA, but that’s alright, because they’ll make great friends. Lucas’s strength of character and Jacqueline’s strive to be a better person is inspiring.
Eli, Kennedy and Ember from the Darkness series by Stacey Marie Brown. Both Eli and Ember are totally kick-ass and Kennedy will be the one keeping the calm, mediating between all the chaos that will ensue at the table with Eli and Ember sitting together.
Étienne St. Clair from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. St. Clair is fun, witty and… Wait for it! A BRIT. With his sexy accent and charming, boy-next-door looks he would be the center of my attention. I’ll leave out Anna just because I want St. Clair for myself.
Morpheus from Splintered by A.G. Howard. Because every group needs a bad boy or two. He is sly and he is sexy and absolutely yummy.
I can undoubtedly scrounge up a few more, but I doubt there’ll be space enough for more. With such a diverse group fun time is guaranteed.
I am really not the one who looks at the past or welcomes nostalgia, but this theme definitely revives some good old memories. Some of the characters I want at my lunch table bear some cool similarities to the friends I actually had during school days. While some characters I just wished would be there, because it would be just awesome. The names go beyond ten, but it can’t be helped. Here it goes:
Very much like my fellow authors, Ronald Weasley from Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling was the first character that came to my mind. Accompanying him would be Fred and George Weasley, Hermoine Granger, Harry Potter, Neville Longbottom and Seamus Finnigan, all from the same series. Simply because they make an interesting bunch! And the ensuing conversations would definitely be cool.
Again, I would have to agree with Sapphire and Garnet for the next bunch of characters. On the same table, I would want Annabeth Chase, Percy Jackson, Grover Underwood, Thalia, Tyson and maybe Ella, and Leo Valdez, from the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus Series. They are another group of fun people.
I would love to see a few characters interacting among themselves. Such as Leo Valdez with Seamus Finnigan (they would blow anything up!) , Hermoine with Annabeth (amazing minds these two), Neville with Tyson (worth watching), Thalia with Ron (Ron’s expressions would be hilarious!) and so on. Joining this conversation would be a treat.
Apart from these, I would like to include Grimalkin from Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey Series. The sense of humour portrayed by Grimalkin, along with the dry wit would be an interesting addition. I would also want Ash and Robin Goodfellow from the same series. The trio would constantly nag each other into lively discussions.
Lastly, Adam, Cee Cee and Jesse from The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot. Adam because he is fun, Cee Cee makes a great friend and Jesse, well, a sexy, sarcastic and sweet ghost is a must!
