Today I want to share with you the first thing that the characters in Fablehaven say.
I’ve done this with all of the Harry Potter books, and I thought that it was interesting to see how even from the first thing that many of the characters say it is possible to tell something about their personalities.
Warning: There may be minor spoilers for the book ‘Fablehaven’ by Brandon Mull.
So anyways, let’s get started!
Seth Sorenson: Why didn’t you tell us Grandpa Sorenson lived in India?
This really is something that Seth would say.
Marla Sorenson: It won’t be much longer. Enjoy the scenery.
Kendra Sorenson: I’m fine.
In the first book even main characters often don’t have interesting first lines…
Scott Sorenson: The food is supposed to be incredible. Snails, fish, eggs, the works.
Stan Sorenson: Why can’t they stay with Marci?
The Sorensons really like using ‘S’ in the men’s names.
Lena Burgess: Aren’t you pretty? You must be around fourteen.
Dale Burgess: Just taking some milk to the woods.
Muriel Taggert: Hail, young master, what brings you to my home?
Maddox Fisk: Among other things. Call fairies my specialty.
Without context this is just a bit weird.
Newel: What are you doing?
Doren: Clumsy work.
Ruth Sorenson: Get down.
Nero: Not a good day. Try me next week.
The Fairy Queen: I accept your offering, and join you in weeping.
That is all of the first lines of all of the named characters in the first Fablehaven.
