Writingprompt_charactergiftsWrite On! Character to Life

This week’s Write On! Writing Prompt comes to us from Late Night Reader (love your Screen Name!) who asks:

Out of all the books you have read, which one book character would you transport into the real world and why? What is it that makes this one character stand out? Why would you two “click?”

That’s a tough one. So many characters, so little time! Who would you pick? Let Late Night Reader and all of us know in the Comments below!

    I would pick Jamie Kelly from dear dumb diary because I feel she would understand my pain and in all of the books she is such a humorous character I feel she will always be there to defend you or just simply disabuse her obsession with Hudson rivers or mr prince. Btw. I am a total book worm. Reading rules I loveschoolastic. You guys rule. You guys are inspirational. I love English and writing. Maybe ill sign up to be a member

    Umm is this a trick question? Obviously it’s Elfangor. He’s awesome. (Though I can’t say the same for Loren.) He’s a hero and left war for love. I find that sweet. So obviously it’s going to be him.

    Hmm…tough question. I think I’d bring Percy Jackson or Harry Potter. Why? Because both of them are great leaders and completely loyal to those they love. I also like the fact that they’re both intense and humorous at the same time. :)

    THE BOOK THAT I WOULD WANT TO COME ALIVE IS THE STARGIRL CHARACTER SUSAN (A.K.A.) STARGIRL THE THING THAT GAVE HER SPARK WAS THAT SHE WAS NOT AFRAID OF WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK, SHE WOULD DO THINGS THAT TO OTHER PEOPLE IT WOULD BE EMBARRASSING ESPECIALY IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE SCHOOL BUT THE THING THAT TICKED ME OFF WAS THAT SHE TRIED TO CHANGE BECAUSE LEO TOLD HER THAT SHE AS A NOTHING TO EVERYBODY IN THE SCHOOL AND BECAUSE LEO CARED WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT SO SHE SAID AND I QUOTE (I DONT WANT TO BE A NOBODY)SO THAT CHANGED HER AND SHE LIKED IT BECAUSE SHE WAS POPULAR IN HER SCHOOL AND SHE LIKED THAT SHE WAS POPULAR THAT IS WHY I WOULD WANT TO BRING TO LIFE STARGIRL.

    I would totally choose Dove from Love, Ruby Lavendar. I’d choose her because she wants to be an anthropologist(ha, spell that off the top of your head) and she likes to observe people like I do. She likes to see the way they move and act. How they think and how they react to different things, and how it effects the world around us. We also have a bit of Unbridled Enthusiasm!

    like kyjk’s answer, maybe Luna Lovegood. She never loses her temper and she’s always so calm. Or possibly Rowley Jefferson. Perhaps even Matilda by Roald Dahl. There are so many to choose from!!!

    Well it is really hard to choose. But I would choose Anabeth from Percy Jackson.She is so smart and I think we would be great friends. I wish she could come into the real world so bad. The person that would be my second choice would be Ben from Wonder Struck. Since he is deaf it would be an amazing experience for me.

    I seriously can’t decide between Percy Jackson(his own series), Annabeth Chase(same as Percy), Harry Potter(his own series also), Hermione Granger, Matthias(Redwall), or Kendra from Fablehaven. Oh, and Jenny Mcfee from How I Survived Middle School!
    Love,

    The character I would bring to life would probably be Meggie from Inkheart. I would bring her to life because she looks like she is full of life and very adventurous. Also the book is written by my favorite author and illustrator Cornelia Funke. You should definetly read the book and see wich one is your favorite character. Perhaps it could be Meggie or Dustfinger. You can decide. The book is very magical and enchanting. That is what I love the most about the book, it makes you forget everythig around you and takes you into the world of InkHeart

    If I could talk to them, it would be a Warrior cat. Probally Jayfeather or Dovewing. Or Cinderpaw. I would love to be able to talk to one of them (even though I’d be alergic to them…)!

    Definitely Katniss from The Hunger Games. I can really relate to her and we’d probably be Bffs,if not sisters, if not twins. I just love her sooooo much and the book is awesome. Btw, go Team Peeta!!!

    hmmm…
    I’d pick either Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, Leo Valdez, Nico di Angelo, Piper Mclean, Hazel Levesque, Grover Underwood, Hermione Granger, Albus Severus Potter, or Dan Cahill. I know, I’d have to pick just one.
