Greetings, nonexistent readers!
I have been tagged by the lovely aceshadowdragon to do this tag, so check out her blog too. It’s about books and stuff. 😉
- Choose 5 books!
- Randomly set up your books in order.
- Flip to a random page in the book and write the first two names you see.
- Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them.
- Cry at how screwed you are…
- Lawless by Jeffrey Salane
- Keeper of the Lost Cities Lodestar by Shannon Messenger
- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
The First Person to Die
M from Lawless.
Nope. I don’t see this. M is too slippery to die.
The Person You Trip to Get Away From ze Zombies
Cal from Lawless.
Yep, I’d probably trip him to get away. I’d trip quite a number of people to get away.
The Person That Trips YOU to Get Away From ze Zombies
Keefe from Lodestar.
Keefe would never trip anyone! To think so is an insult. He would probably go and stand in front of the zombies to buy everyone else a couple extra seconds.
The First Person to Turn into a Zombie
Mr. Forkle from Lodestar.
This is probably not true, but I don’t particularly care either way.
The Idiot of ze Team
Nikolai from Ruin and Rising.
This is a lie if I’ve ever heard one. Nikolai is the most cunning and calculating character in the book and if anything, he’d be the leader of the team.
The Brains of the Team
David from Ruin and Rising.
This is actually the most accurate one thus far. It’s scarily accurate.
David is so smart, he could make anything. He’s totally the brains of the team, but he’d probably get eaten first as well because he has many brains and he is also generally unathletic.
P.S. Haha. Puns. 🙂
Caeser Flickerman from The Hunger Games.
Hmm. When I was reading The Hunger Games, Ceaser Flickerman never came across as a medic to me…
If he’s the best medic on our team, we’re probably screwed, although I suppose laughter is the best medicine.
The Weapons Expert
Peeta from The Hunger Games.
Meh. He’s okay I suppose. I’d leave the weapons stuff to Katniss, but she was not chosen for this tag.
Cal from Red Queen.
First, this is a different Cal from the other Cal from Lawless. How interesting that two Cal’s were chosen for this tag.
Second, I’m not entirely sure what “The Brawler” would entitle. I think it’s someone who picks a fight and is good at it, so we’ll just answer this question using that definition.
So according to that definition, I think this is semi-right. Cal would be good in a fight, great perhaps, depending on the opponent, but I don’t think he’d be the one to pick the fight.
Mare from Red Queen.
She’d be a decent leader, but not the best. As I’ve said before, I think Nikolai would be a much better fit for this role.
And Because I Can…
If I could assign the roles on my zombie-defeating team instead of fate, here’s how it would be:
First to die: Keefe (But he’s one of my favorite characters of all books ever and this is so sad, but he’d probably still sacrifice himself.)
Person you’d trip: Mr. Forkle (I’m not particularly attached to him.)
Person that trips you: Cal from Lawless
First to turn into a zombie: Caeser Flickerman
The one with brains: David
Medic: M (I don’t think she has any medical experience though. I’d pick Yrene Towers from Tower of Dawn.)
Weapons expert: Cal from Red Queen
Brawler: Peeta (This doesn’t really match. I’d pick Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass or Mal from Siege and Storm if I could.)
and whoever else wants to do it.

Thanks for doing the tag! 😀 I liked how you added what roles you would rather have the characters be. I didn’t even think of that! And I definitely agree on Nikolai being the leader. I still haven’t gotten around to Ruin and Rising, but in the second book he quickly became one of my favorite characters in the series.
