In celebration of that last Saturday, and because I always love to hear from you lovely readers, I collected the perfect number of people to help me answer this question for our last Fangirl Saturday:
Think of a character who puts their friendships above their own desires. Why do they do this, and why does this make that character important to you?
People Who Would Die
ElizabethQuest: TO FIND THE HOLY GRAIL. Or something.
Favorite Color: Purple
Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Quest: Read, Write, Share the love of Jesus, and Get everyone to understand that the Star Wars prequels are the best.
Favorite Color: Pink (but not blinding pink; she is a girly girl)
Fandom: BBC Merlin
Quest: Finding a talking tree.
Favorite Color: Teal
Fandom: Chemical Garden by Lauren DeStefano
She empathizes with others and that makes her so easy to empathize with, even when this consideration of others above herself might have terrible effects on her own life and choices.
Bonus awards to Jason from Heroes of Olympus, Abdi from While We Run, and Ruby from The Darkest Minds.
People Who Would Not Die
HeatherQuest: To seek the Holy Grail. (Nice try, Elizabeth.)
Favorite Color: Blue (Not really, but that’s how you live. Watch the movie.)
And that’s a wrap! Thanks to Elizabeth, Alexa, and Shanti for helping me out this week, and thanks to you all for making this a super fun summer feature!
