Writing_prompt_bookWriting Prompt: BFF Book Characters

What if you could make your favorite book character come to life and become your BFF? Or which book character would be your sworn enemy? Well, this week’s Write On Writing Prompt gives you the chance to answer those very questions. It comes to us from 44maplesyrup, who asks:

Which book character would you like to be friends with?
Which would be your enemy?
Which would you want to date?
Which would you want to switch places with?

Here’s my go at it:

Friend: Nikki Maxwell from The Dork Diaries series
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.)

What are YOUR answers? Let 44maplesyrup know in the Comments below!

    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!))
