Enemy: Voldemort. Of course!!!
Date: Edward from Twilight (for ages 12 and up) 
Switch Places: Meg from A Wrinkle in Time (I’ve always wanted to time travel.)

    I think I would want to be best friends with Annabeth or Percy from the Percy Jackson series because I think it would be so insanely cool to be a demigod! Plus I think they are the cutest couple! xD
    Though Voldemort would be a big enemy of mind I’ve also grown a hatred towards some characters in books I read who do stupid things like Drew and Octavian also from the Percy Jackson (well really Heroes of Olympus) series.
    (As you can tell I’m kinda obsessed!)
    Hm, what character to date…let’s see…well like I said, Percy Jackson seems awesome but he’s taken and totally adorable with Annabeth so I think i would want to date Peeta from the Hunger Games because Josh Hutcherson is SO cute! Or maybe even Carter Kane from the Kane Chronicles, because he seems really cool too, and nerd/bookworm-y like me!
    Sorry again for basing this all around Rick Riordan (like I said, I’m just obsessed!) but I would want to trade places with Annabeth because she is really smart and can keep her head and her romance in a fight! If I couldn’t be Annabeth I might want to be (yes another Riordan character!) Sadie Kane because she’s dramatic and romantic-y like me.
    ((Sorry if this is too long or I did something wrong on here! This is my first post on this site and I think it is really cool!))

    ~Rhys Griffith, Derek Bae, and Will Herondale
    Which would you want to switch places with?
    ~NO ONE…because of the fact that they’re book characters, so great moments of utter angst are always happening to them! XD

    One shoes, the shoes of a master lost in the bed corner, the dark spent a long time. A will to produce mice me into its nest, so that when the little mouse’s nest. Looked at the leisurely pace of life of the mice, I pray to God to let me become a mouse.
    Merciful God granted me my request, let me become a mouse. Rats, I know the when rats difficulty. During the day can not come out, come out at night to steal food but also to avoid the arrest of the cat. Some mice when I am tired of this life, I want to be a cat. When the cat is more than okay during the day drilling in the arms of the owner to play at night can catch the mouse to play more than okay.

  32. Who needs shoes

    People always need shoes, a close friend
    Climbing the road should be with the shoes
    The shoes are always willing to be intimate partner of the human
    Never exposed to their own complaints
    Happiness to mankind!
    This may be their own destiny
    Human beings seem to think that he is never stepped on the top of the shoes
    As scaffold
    Years years months
    From year to
    One day the shoes break
    People take it away
