Hello Again Bookworms!
We are still in the throes of Armchair BEA and one of today’s discussion topics is Character Chatter. I love, love, love fictional characters. I love them so much that I set them up on imaginary dates where they have imaginary conversations and are generally ridiculous. Today, though, I’m feeling combative. I’m going to pair up a few fictional characters to do battle. Because why not?
Battle of the Horrible Spoiled Children: Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory vs. Dudley Dursley of Harry Potter. I’m going to give this one to Veruca. It’s a tough call, but since the whole tail incident (reason number 857 Hagrid rules) I think Dudley would be extremely suspicious of anyone discussing golden eggs.
Battle of the One Handed Men: Jaime Lannister from A Game of Thrones vs. Fergus Fraser from Outlander. What a match-up! This one is going to come down to the usefulness of the prosthetic, I’m afraid. What is it with the Lannisters and their gold?! A gold hand is SUPER impractical. A hook, on the other hand (pun intended), is extremely helpful. Plus, Fergus is scrappy as all heck. He’d totally take down the Kingslayer.
Battle of the YA Action Heroines: Tris from Divergent vs. Katniss from The Hunger Games. Tris post Dauntless training was pretty badass, but let’s think what would happen for a minute of each character were in the other’s trilogy. If Katniss were in Divergent, she’d totally have become Dauntless and been badass the whole way through, and not just because her brain resisted fear serum. If Tris had been selected for The Hunger Games, she’d have been slaughtered in the initial melee. That, and Katniss is pretty psychologically effed up. Tris’s conscience would get in the way of her doing any real damage.
What are your thoughts, Bookworms? Who would win in these fights?!
