I saw this tag on two different blogs, and even though I was super confused by the name of the tag (LIKE, EXCUSE ME, HOW DO YOU KNOW I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH), I knew I had to do it even though I knew I wasn’t tagged. The two blogs were The Book Cover Girl and Bella Blogs Because Books. Check out both of their blogs, because they are full of great bookish content – and they really weren’t insulting me with the tag title despite what I originally though.
How it Works
Basically, it’s a tag where you pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down on pieces of paper. You then pluck two names at a time out to answer a question – so there are 15 questions. The aim of the game is to pick the character that fits the criteria the best and by doing so find the character that is not “good enough” for the answer.
YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MORE SPOT ON YOUR SPELLING BEE TEAM, WHO WOULD YOU PICK TO COMPLETE YOUR TEAM?
Jesper from Six of Crows vs. Coach Hedge from The Lost Hero
Oh dear. This is actually a tough one. Both of them don’t immediately scream out “I’m the best person to be on your spelling team”, but I feel like both of them would be so passionate and aggressively competitive for it. Coach Hedge would be bringing out his club to beat down the opponents. I feel like I would go with more Coach Hedge since he is quite a bit older than Jesper and would have more exposure to odd spelling bee words.
BOTH CHARACTERS WANT TO KILL YOU, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU KILL FIRST SO YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVING?
Sailor Moon vs. Carswell Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles
OH NO. MY BABIES. I have to kill one of them??? To be honest, I think both of them would clearly be more of the Mandy killers, but I feel like if I had to kill off one first because they would kick my butt even more would be Sailor Moon. I mean, Thorne has fighting skills, but Sailor Moon is so kickass.
YOU’RE ON THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE AN YOU’RE DOWN TO THESE TWO CHARACTERS, WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE YOUR ROSE TOO?
Kaz from Six of Crows vs. Shazi from The Wrath and the Dawn
Oooooh, this is a tough one. I feel like Kaz wouldn’t even be there in the first place. But if he was there, it would be a tough one. Shazi is this fierce, kickbutt lady that I super enjoyed reading about…but Kaz is my little questionable moral bad boy. He’s a thief and he totally stole my heart in the book so he would totally steal my last rose, too.
YOU’VE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE HUNGER GAMES, WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY VOLUNTEER IN YOUR PLACE?
Inej from Six of Crows vs. Leo Valdez from The Lost Hero
Goodness, all the Six of Crows characters are showing up in force in the beginning. I feel like both Inej and Leo have giant hearts, and it kind of would be a tossup who would volunteer first. Inej would do it because she would want to save poor innocent Mandy who clearly would not be surviving at all and then kill literally everyone in the first two seconds. And I could see Leo jumping on it too, but a bit more hesitantly.
YOU’RE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND. WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU SACRIFICE TO ENGAGE IN CANNIBALISM?
Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson vs. Yeva from Hunted
Oh, so, so, so sorry, Yeva – you’re a sweetheart, but I think I might be sacrificing you, because I feel like given enough time, Annabeth could figure us a way off the island or at least get her mom to get us off.
YOU’RE THE NEXT DC/MARVEL SUPERHERO (WITH YOUR OWN TV SHOW OF COURSE), WHO IS YOUR SIDEKICK?
Feyre from ACOTAR series vs. Wesley from The Princess Bride
Hmmmmmm…another good question. Both of them would be super kickbutt and knows their way around weapons. Feyre is super skilled and strong, but I might be leaning a bit more toward Wesley because the man literally is smart, good with a sword, and super good with the quips.
YOU’RE A MANAGER OF AN AVOCADO ADMIRING COMPANY, WHO WOULD YOU FIRE FOR LACK OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS?
Cress from The Lunar Chronicles vs. Laia from An Ember in the Ashes
Sorry, Laia, you gots to go. I COULD NEVER FIRE MY BABY CRESS. Plus, I mean, who else would be a total fangirl for avocado admiring?
YOU’VE JUST FINISHED A BOOK IN WHICH YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTER DIES, WHICH CHARACTER IS MOST LIKELY TO COMFORT YOU?
Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles vs. Audrey Rose from Hunting Prince Dracula
While I don’t feel like Audrey Rose is cold or anything – far from it – I feel like she would take a more clinical approach to it all. Wolf is such a big sweetheart that I feel like he would just give me a big ole hug – away from the teeth and claws, though.
UGH, IT’S HIGH SCHOOL. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY BE PART OF THE POPULAR CLIQUE?
Kai from The Lunar Chronicles vs. Fox Mulder from The X-Files: Agents of Chaos
HAHAHAHAHA. IT IS CERTAINLY NOT FOX. Poor baby Fox. Such a cutie, but no love for the dude that loves him some aliens. Definitely princely Kai.
THE DAY HAS ARRIVED; YOU’RE FINALLY A YEAR OLDER! WHO WOULD HAVE THE NERVE TO FORGET YOUR BIRTHDAY?
Alosa from Daughter of the Pirate King vs. The Darking from The Grisha Trilogy
Lol, definitely The Darkling. The man is off trying to take over the world. He would totally be forgetting my magical day.
YOU’VE JUST FOUND AN UPCOMING BOOKTUBE STAR? WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY BE?
Alina from The Grisha Trilogy vs. Dana Scully from The X-Files: Devil’s Advocate
Erm, huh. If you’re looking for facts and super intense reviews, Dana would be your gal. Alina? I feel like she would have a bit more heart into it. I would probably still watch Dana.
SLEEPOVER TIME! UNFORTUNATELY YOU CAN ONLY INVITE ONE PERSON, WHO WOULD YOU INVITE?
Bruce Wayne from Batman: Nightwalker vs. Jackaby from the Jackaby series
Oh, Jackaby for certain. I feel like he would just have limitless amount of stories and information, and I would be so enthralled the entire night. Plus, Bruce can be kind of a party pooper, though.
BAM, YOU’RE PREGNANT. WHO’S THE FATHER/MOTHER?
Emika Chen from Warcross vs. Rhysand from the ACOTAR series
Well, I do love Emika, but Rhysand is a looker. Might favor Rhysand a bit more for this one. 😉
YOU’VE JUST WRITTEN A SUPER IMPORTANT TEXT. WHO WOULD ‘SEE’ IT, BUT NOT REPLY?
Thomas Cresswell from Stalking Jack the Ripper series vs. Scarlet from The Lunar Chronicles
Oh, Cresswell for SURE. He so has the personality for it. Scarlet would definitely respond.
YOU’VE JUST WOKEN UP AND IT’S TIME FOR BREAKFAST. YOUR MUM’S BEEN REPLACED BY WHO?!
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles vs. Buttercup from The Princess Bride
Huh. I’m not quite sure I want either making me breakfast??? I might go a bit more with Cinder.
I wasn’t officially tagged for this, so I always feel awkward tagging others so…just feel free to do it if you want to? 😉
What do you think? What are some of your answers for this? Would you have chosen what I did? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
