Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!
Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was actually really fun to put together! While I don’t plan on ever getting stranded on a deserted island (who does, really?) – and even if I did, these folks wouldn’t be much help since they’re, you know, not real – it was fun to really look at the characters I’ve read about and see who would actually be the biggest help. I tried to really stay with people who could actually help me get off the island; after all, resourcefulness is pretty darn sexy!
From the Percy Jackson & the Olympians/Heroes of Olympus Series
Okay, he’s possibly cheating. But come on, the guy’s a son of Poseidon, which means he can control water creatures AND breathe underwater. Seems pretty handy to have around, not to mention the amusement his snark and sass could help bring about!
From the Hunger Games Series
She’s good at hunting, and knows her wild plants. She’s definitely a necessity if I want to stay alive on this strange, deserted island!
From the Heroes of Olympus Series
This guy is good at building things, and in fact, builds himself a raft to get off his own deserted island in The House of Hades. Plus he’s hilarious, and could help keep the mood on the island from getting too serious.
From the Harry Potter Series
Magic can’t be anything but helpful, right? Plus she’s smart, so could help us all figure out what to do.
From The Lord of the Rings
Good at tracking, plus he knows some healing tricks, which I would imagine would come in handy. And he’s good with weapons, so could help keep everyone (namely ME) safe.
From The Chronicles of Narnia Series
Since there’re lots of strong personalities on this island, someone versed in diplomacy would be a good addition to the group. After all, he’s known as King Edmund the Just, right? Plus he’s handy with a sword, so, you know. That whole protection thing again.
From the Something Strange and Deadly Series
Eleanor is a feisty lady, who’s strong and determined. I’d like to think those qualities would come in handy as we work to get off the island!
From the White Rabbit Chronicles
Okay, I don’t think zombies are really going to be an issue on this island (at least, I hope not), but JUST IN CASE it’s probably a good idea to have someone around who’s well-versed in fighting them. Plus he’s extremely nice to look at. What can I say? Eye candy is never a bad thing!
From The Dispossessed Trilogy
If Luc manages to get swept away to this island, then it would be considered his territory, right? So he’d have to save all of us “living” there. He’s a strong protector, and he can fly and heal people, so I consider that a win-win all around.
From the Pivot Point Duology
Addie has the ability to “search” two different paths to see which one she should take. This would be extremely helpful to a group trying to get off a deserted island!
So those are my ten characters! Who did you pick? Please link me!
