The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge. – Thomas Berger
Sometimes we can learn more from the questions that others ask rather than the questions that we ourselves ask, so that is why today I am doing a book tag.
And this one has to do with the Avengers! The only problem is some of them are dead right now… And some are just missing from this tag and are dead, or are alive and missing from this tag…
This one I stole from AJ’s Pages because it looked fun, and I wanted something that would not take me too long because life does happen even when you would prefer to be writing.
Without further ado, let’s begin!
1. Captain America – A character you would follow into battle.
Faramir. He is not only a warrior, but a scholar. He has wisdom that makes me trust that he would do the best that he can for those that follow him.
2. Thor – A book you finished and made you immediately shout – ANOTHER!
Brandon Sanderson’s ‘The Rithmatist.’ After I finished this one I desperate looked around for the sequel, and when I learned that it had not yet been written I got his other books from my local library.
3. Okoye – A female character you would fight alongside/hide behind.
Surprisingly, my first thought on this was Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson books.
But it actually makes a lot of sense because we would get a long pretty well a lot of the time.
4. Iron Man – A character with a big ego, but a bigger heart.
Artemis Fowl, I think. It’s hard to tell, but he reminds me a lot of Tony Stark.
If Tony Stark was a lot younger and was being a villain in a world where there are fairies, he would probably act a lot like Artemis.
5. T’Challa and Shuri – Siblings who mess with each other, but would rip you apart for doing the same.
Jo and Amy March. You can see it numerous times in the book.
6. Phil Coulson – PSYCHE! A character who would pretend to be dead just to mess with the other characters.
Sherlock Holmes. Although he really did have good reasons to pretend to be dead.
People just don’t pretend to be dead very often in the books that I read.
7. Loki – A character with kickass development/arc.
Hmmm… Elizabeth Bennet.
She definitely learns throughout the book. I know that this may not be a conventional choice, but if you think about it it makes sense.
And just being able to compare Loki to Elizabeth Bennet is amusing. Great, now all the ways that they are similar are going through my head…
8. Bucky – A character who needs a hug but could also kill you in the same second.
Kaladin Stormblessed. He is carrying around so much guilt and pain. He really needs help to let go. I’m just glad he has Syl.
9. Rhodey/Sam Wilson – ‘The people that shoot at you usually wind up shooting at me.’ – A character who’ll stand by their friend, but also exasperatedly try to drag them out of dangerous situations.
Mafoo from ‘The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen.’ This describes his role perfectly.
Unfortunately since this is such a little known book I can’t find any pictures of him…
10. Shuri – A beautiful, clever bean who must be protected.
Belinda Davis from the Love Comes Softly series. She is so sweet and is always taking care of everyone else.
And I can’t seem to find a picture of her either. Wow.
11. Spiderman – A character you want to take under your wing.
I don’t think that taking any fictional character under my wing would end up well.
But I guess if I am going to do that to a fictional character I would choose Lift from the Stormlight Archive because she would be able to teach me as much as I would be able to teach her.
And she is such an interesting character!
So, that is that. If you feel like doing this tag, please, consider yourself tagged!
