The Character Fight to the Death Tag

The lovely Amy @ A Magical World of Words tagged me to take part in this one so let's see how it goes.

Here are the rules:
- Write down the names of 30 characters
- For every question randomly draw two names
- Answer the question using the two names drawn

Here are my characters:
Alexander Belov, Alina Starkov, America Singer, Amren, Bellatrix Lestrange, Cath, Connor Cobalt, Daemon Black, Dimple Shah, Feyre, Four, Hermione Granger, Jace Herondale, Jamie Fraser, Juliette Ferrars, Katniss Everdeen, Kenji Kishimoto, Lisbeth Salander, Magnus Bane, Meg Corbyn, Molly Peskin, Myrnin, Peeta Mellark, Prince Maxon, Rhysand, Rose Calloway, Simon Spier, Tessa Gray, The Darkling, Vladimir Sanguinati

And here we go...
You only have one more spot on your spelling bee team. 
Who gets it?
Rose Calloway (The Addicted Series) 
Jace Herondale (The Mortal Instruments)

Sorry Jace, but Rose wins this one hands down. Rose is brilliant, focused and competitive. 
She'd slay in a spelling bee.

Both characters want to kill you. 
Who would you kill first to have a better chance of survival?
Vladimir Sanguinati (The Others Series)
Myrnin (The Morganville Vampires)

Seriously? I managed to pull two vampires? I am so screwed.
Well, assuming I could kill a vampire, I'd try to off Vlad first. 
Myrnin was often less scary and just... eccentric. On a good day.

You're on The Bachelor/Bachelorette and down to two characters. 
Who gets your rose?
Amren (A Court of Mist and Fury)
Jamie Fraser (Outlander)

Having never seen a single episode of The Bachelor, I'm assuming giving a rose means you pick that person?
I like Amren, but frankly she scares me. LOL And Jamie is, well... it's Jamie Fraser people. Need I say more?

You've been chosen for the Hunger Games. 
Who's most likely to volunteer in your place?
Tessa Gray (The Infernal Devices)
Alina Starkov (The Grisha Trilogy)

Oh wow, I could see either of these characters volunteering to take someone's place.
They are both strong, brave, headstrong and fearless. And they both have compassion.
It's really a toss-up but I'll go with Alina.

You're stranded on an island and must engage in cannibalism to survive. 
Who do you eat?
Lisbeth Salander (The Millennium Trilogy)
Four (Divergent)

Bahahaha!! Do I even need to think about this one? Sorry, Lisbeth.
I know you've had a hard life, but you're about to be served up while I kick back island-style with Four. 

You're the next Marvel superhero (with your own TV show, of course). 
Who's your sidekick?
Bellatrix Lestrange (Harry Potter)
Magnus Bane (The Mortal Instruments)

Another no-brainer. I'll take the wickedly cool Magnus Bane over Miss Crazy Pants any day.

You're a manager of an avocado company. 
Who would you fire for poor communication skills?
The Darkling (The Grisha Trilogy)
Meg Corbyn (The Others Series)

An avocado company? WTH? But okay... 
I've only read the first book in the Grisha trilogy so far but already it seems that the Darkling is secretive and manipulative and not exactly forthcoming with the truth. Whereas Meg is open and honest and has managed to ingratiate herself with all different types of people (and species).
Darkling... you're fired.

You've just finished a book in which your favorite character dies. 
Which of these two characters is more likely to comfort you?
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)

Katniss has a good heart but isn't exactly warm and fuzzy. Hermione would be a lot more likely to hold my hand and give me a hug.

Ugh, it's high school. 
Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?
Rhysnad (A Court of Mist and Fury)
Juliette Ferrars (The Shatter Me Trilogy)

I think it goes without saying that Rhys would rule the school. LOL

The day has arrived - you're finally a year older. 
Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?
Prince Maxon (The Selection Series)
Cath (Fangirl)

Maxon is a total sweetheart and would probably plan some super elaborate surprise for my birthday.
Cath, on the other hand, would be in the midst of writing Simon Snow fanfic and completely forget I existed.

You've just found an up and coming YouTube star. 
Who is it more likely to be?
Kenji Kishimoto (The Shatter Me Trilogy)
Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

Kenji! I could totally see Kenji becoming a YouTube sensation. He make a name for himself doing stand-up comedy or hosting some cheesy dating show. LOL Feyre? Not so much.

Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can invite only one person. 
Who will it be?
Simon Spier (Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda)
America Singer (The Selection Trilogy)

America Singer is NOT invited to my sleepover. She would work my last nerve and I'd end up booting her out before midnight. But Simon... we could totally hang. We'd stay up all night talking about boys and eating Oreos.

Bam, you're pregnant. Who's the father/mother?
Molly Peskin (The Upside of Unrequited)
Connor Cobalt (The Addicted Series)

Bam, I'm pregnant? Did I at least get dinner first? Geez.
Sorry Molly. I like you, I relate to you, but we're talking Connor Cobalt.
Narcissist. Genius. Smartass. And apparently the father of my non-existent child.

You've just sent a super important text. 
Who would see it and not reply?
Daemon Black (The Lux Series )
Alexander Belov (The Bronze Horseman)

Oh, this is a good one. It could go either way. Daemon would totally blow off a text if he wasn't in the mood to deal with it. And if asked about it he'd even say, "Yeah, I saw it." Alexander would ignore the text because the technology would confound him, seeing as how he's in Russia in the 1940's. But I'm going with Daemon because it's likely he would not reply just to be a jerk. LOL

You've just woken up and it's time for breakfast. 
Your mom has been replaced by... ?
Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)
Dimple Shah (When Dimple Met Rishi

Wow, my mom probably hasn't made me breakfast in 25 years but okay, that's cool. :)
Dimple may seem like the obvious choice, just based on gender, but I'm going with Peeta.
He's an absolute sweetheart and could bake me all sorts of yummy breakfast breads.

So there you have it. Did any answers surprise you? :)
I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you feel like playing along
then consider yourself tagged!


  1. I haven't read When Dimple Met Rishi yet, but I was glad you went with Peeta for that last one. He definitely seems like the nurturing type. This is a really fun tag! I might consider doing it, except I'm horrible at remembering character names and even details sometimes, so I don't know if I could manage it. BUT this is so much more fun than the typical tag!

    Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

    1. Oh yeah, Peeta was definitely the better choice. :) This was a fun tag to do... but time-consuming. Would love to see your picks if you decide to do it. :)

  2. Ahhh this is so awesome!! I loved reading your answers and I'm so glad you took part.

    Some of those answers are just too perfect. I can so see Rhys leading the popular crowd, haha. And your sass in some of those answers really made me laugh ;)

    Great post! ❤

    Amy @ A Magical World Of Words

    1. Thanks Amy! This one was time consuming... but fun. :) Glad you tagged me on this one!

  3. Oh my god this tag looks awesome! Tanya, can I do it and say you tagged me XD

    1. Absolutely! Consider yourself tagged. :) Can't wait to see your answers!

  4. Love this! It sounds so fun! I wonder if I'd be able to come up with 30 characters... worth a shot! I agreed with pretty much all your answers actually! I was really hoping you'd want Peeta to cook breakfast- imagine the cheesy buns! And the assortment of baked goods would be on point haha. And Kenji is definitely the YouTube star, no question! So fun!

    1. You should totally do this one, Shannon. I'd love to see what you come up with. :) And yeah, I had to pick Peeta. He's way more maternal and nurturing than Dimple. Plus, like you said, all the bread!

  5. haha I LOVE LOVE LOVE these tags of yours Tanya! That's how you get me to read ALL THE THINGS ! Like I wasn't crazy about Mortal Instruments and now I want to try again! LOL. I would also anyone else but Four so he can help me survive! :) and I would never choose Bellatrix over anyone.
    I so agree he would totally blow off a text! LOL he is indeed such a jerk. BUT I KNOW I will like him later LOL

    1. LOL So glad I can amuse... and peer pressure. :) Oh wait, Four could help me survive? Oops, I was just going for the eye candy. Haha. And naturally Daemon is on my list. I find a way to work him into any tag (or any post, for that matter).

  6. WOW! That was fun to read... the answers that stood out to me were The Darkling being fired, lol... and Vladimer being who you go after first... you are so screwed with that one!! And YES the Magnus Bane as my sidekick too!! <3

    1. I know right?! I couldn't believe I drew the names of the only two vamps for that question. Totally screwed. LOL Magnus would be the best sidekick!
