I saw this tag floating around and the part of me that secretly still wants to disappear into a story (seriously where is my dang Hogwarts letter, this is getting ridiculous?) was so excited by it! I also find this tag super interesting because you could answer these questions as in ‘this would be cool’ or you could look at it as what would actually work in your life, which is entirely different!
Who would your parents be? My mum would be Moira Sargent from The Raven Boys or Molly Weasley from Harry Potter, and my dad would be someone goofy like Arthur Weasley or Henry Branwell from The Infernal Devices.
Who would be your sister? I don’t have a sister so it’s strange to distinguish between who I would have as a friend and who I would have as a sister! It would be cool to have a kick-ass sister like Ginny from Harry Potter or Scarlet from The Lunar Chronicles! I also feel as though Nina from Six of Crows would be the most supportive/ caring/ sass-master sister ever.
Who would be your brother? Fred and George Weasley or Ron from Harry Potter or Hazael from Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
Who would be your pet? Fleetfoot from Throne of Glass (my favourite part of the whole series) or Crookshanks from Harry Potter or one of the direwolves from Game of Thrones. This question has made me realise that for an animal-lover I don’t read nearly enough books with great animal characters in them!! I am in desperate need of adorable pets to give reprieve from story angst. Please recommend! Extra points for stories with a cute male protagonist going gooey over an animal!
Where would you live? At 300 Fox Way with Blue Sargent or at Hogwarts or at the London institute with Jem and Tessa and Will!
Who would be your best friend? Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Or just a girl gang with Hermione, Luna, Ginny (HP), Isabelle Lightwood (TMI), Blue Sargent (TRC), Karou + Zuzanna (DoSaB), older Sansa Stark (GOT), Nina + Inej (SoC), and Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables).
As for guy bffs: Jesper (SoC), Neville, Ron + Harry (HP), Ronan + Adam (TRC), and Julian + Mark (TDA).
Who would be your significant other? I feel as though this is a really difficult question because you can swoon as much as you like over a boy in a book but whether or not you could actually see yourself with them if they were a real person is entirely different! For example, I love Kaz Brekker as much as the next person and ship him & Inej A LOT, but I would probably resent his murderous ways, and tendency toward violence if we were to date ya know? I could also pick someone typically drooled over like Rhys from A Court of Mist and Fury but I cannot ever see me (turtle-neck wearing, passionately outspoken vegetarian who wants to own 100 dogs) ending up with anyone remotely similar to him. I think my options would be: Jem from The Infernal Devices because I literally teared up reading his chapters because I don’t think a purer character has EVER existed and perhaps his perpetual sincerity/goodness would not work with me but I love him so he’s on the list OKAY), Chaol from Throne of Glass (because even if this series went to shit and made me horrendously angry I still adore Chaol and his grumpy, sometimes cynical, sweet personality), Gansey from The Raven Boys (because he is the well-dressed, dorky, handsome glasses-wearing boy of my dreams), and maybe Alex from Delirium because he always felt like a realistic, flawed character who I loved.
Phewf, that last answer was probably way too long but it’s a difficult process choosing your one and only soul-mate for life ya know? I hope you enjoyed this tag and feel compelled to try it out for yourself! I can say that it was just as fun as I thought it would be and I probably expended far too much brain power completing it but there you go.
