Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they update their blog with a list of ten things that have to do with a predetermined topic.
This week's topic is...
Which ten fictional characters would you chose to be stranded with on a deserted island?
1. Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus series: Percy can control water. We are stuck on a deserted island. All he has to do is conjure up a wave or summon a few of his father's sea creatures to give us a ride and we would be all set.
2. Kai from the Lunar Chronicles: If, for some reason, Percy is unable to rescue us from the island and we are forced to create our own society (of sorts) until help arrives, I feel like Kai would be our best bet as leader. He is very diplomatic, kind and reasonable.
3. Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games trilogy: She is a great hunter and won the Hunger Games twice. Who wouldn't want her on their team?
4. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series: It would probably work to our advantage to have someone as smart as Hermione stuck with us, as she probably has a plethora of information on the best place to make camp, what kind of wild creatures are indigenous to the area and which water is safe to drink. Plus, she's a witch.
5. Mackenzie Bishop from the Archived trilogy: Mackenzie is strong and unafraid, making her the perfect sort of warrior/fighter should we be attacked by pirates, aliens or the undead.
6. Leo Valdez from the Heroes of Olympus series: Leo would be a source of comic relief; making light of our unfortunate situation and keeping things upbeat. Also, he can make fire, which is sure to come in handy.
7. Liam from the Darkest Minds trilogy: When everyone else is freaking out and/or trying to strangle
Leo one another, Liam would be the voice of reason. I would want someone like that around, especially if we are stuck on the island for some time.
8. Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings trilogy: I mean, if nothing else, he can tell us stories and conjure up some fireworks to keep us entertained. Who knows, maybe someone will see the display and send help.
9. Perry from the Under the Never Sky trilogy: Perry has proven himself to be resourceful on more than one occasion, and would be just level-headed enough to make himself useful. He could aid Katniss with her hunting and then come back and plan a way off of the island with Kai, Liam and Percy.
10. Luc from the Dispossessed series: He may be part gargoyle, but it would be nice to have a set of wings on the team. As insurance.
