Writing Prompt: Favorite Book Characters

Posted by at 2:49 am in Harry Potter, Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_charactergifts EPIC Character Questions!

Skyelark Moon on the Harry Potter Message Board has some great questions for today's Writing Prompt. The questions are meant for Harry Potter characters, but I think they work with any book characters. So think about YOUR favorite characters and come up with your answers to these epic questions. . .

  • Who is your favorite character?
  • Which character would you want to go on a date with?
  • If you were away, what character would take care of your pet for you?
  • What character would you like to live with?
  • What character would be your best friend?
  • If you could take a character camping, what one would it be?
  • If you had the choice to go anywhere with a character, what place would you go, and who would you go with?
  • If you could be a character, which one would you be?
  • What character would you want in your dorm at Hogwarts?

For example, if I were away, I would want Theodosia Throckmorton from Theodosia and the Serpents of Chaos to take care of my cats, because they sometimes act really crazy and Theo will be able to tell if it's because they are cursed.

And if I could take a character camping, I would take Kate Weatherall from The Mysterious Benedict Society. I would want to see her build a tent out of all the crazy stuff she carries in her bucket!

Answer one question or answer them all! Leave your answers in the Comments.

    My favorite character is definetly Harry Potter. He sacrificed his life to save those he loved. In the end he conquered death. I enjoyed watching him grow and mature throughout the series.

    My favorite character is Severus Snape because I can relate to being bullied at school, particually when it’s someone stronger than you. I’d date Bill Weasely. I’d would be Ollivander, because he’s an extraordainary character,if you think about it. I’d room with Luna Lovegood,and she’d be my best friend as well.

    If I were to go and live with any character from a book it would be Nim from Nim’s Island by Wendy Orr. While I was gone, I would trust my dog (and hermit crabs…AND frog…) with Max from the Tapestry series because he took care of the last lymrill in the world, Nick.
    While we are on Nim’s Island I would go camping with Mr. Canis from the Sisters Grimm Series (because he’d scare away all the critters at night!)
    When I miss my best friend Christina, from Secret of Zoom by Lynne Jonell, I would send her a postcard with a plane on it because we both like planes.
    I’ve read too many books to have a favorite character and I don’t need a date…
    Thanks for asking! :)

    I can’t decide who my favorite character is.I wouldn’t go on a date with anyone.I’d want Amy from The 39 Clues to take care of my pets. Annabeth from Percy Jackson would be who I’d want to live with. Anastasia from Anastasia The Last Grand Duchess would be my best friend. Opal from Because Of Winn Dixie would probably be good to camp with.I would pick Nellie from The 39 Clues to travel to Europe with.Too many awesome characters I could be.I’d dorm with Hermionie.
