BoB 14: Character Soulmates
Today's Bout of Books challenge is "Character Soulmates," hosted by Blue Books and Butterflies! For this, we must play matchmaker; pairing two characters from two separate books/series that we feel would be "Ship-able."
Tella Holloway (Fire and Flood) + Perry (Under the Never Sky)
Ship Name: Pella
In Fire and Flood, Tella is attracted to Guy; a strong, no-nonsense lover of nature. Perry possesses a lot of the same traits. Plus, he's tall, dark and handsome, which is definitely Tella's type. I can see her following Perry around as he navigates the wilderness, completely entranced with his knowledge of survival. And I think that Perry would enjoy Tella's sarcasm and wit. They are both loyal and protective of the ones they love and would probably get along splendidly.
Amy Martin (Across the Universe) + Bellamy Blake (The 100)
Ship Name: BellAmy (I did not realize how complicated a Ship name for these two would be when I originally paired them up...)
Bellamy likes a strong, independent woman who is not afraid to speak her mind (in theory, as the TV show is a better example of this than the actual book), as evidence by his relationship with Clarke Griffin. Amy is very strong, clever and stubborn. Her life has not been easy, and I feel like she and Bellamy would be able to bond over their past experiences and work through them together. They would also challenge one another, which would be funny to watch; I can see many heated arguments, stubborn silences and lovely make-up sessions in their future!
