Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme put together by the fabulous
ladies of The Broke and the Bookish.
Our philosophy on being stranded on a desert island is two fold: part bookworm/part Captain Jack Sparrow. Give us books to read and rum to drink, preferably in something frozen with a little umbrella, and call us happy girls! But what if you could take that a step further, and actually choose characters from your beloved novels to be stranded with?! And thus follows, the Top Ten Character We Would Want With Us On A Deserted Island.
She put a spell on us from the first novel. And on a deserted island, she could put a spell on a lot of things, like insects and sand repellent underwear.
Mr. Tumnus was the first person/creature that Susan stumbled across when she happened into the wintry wonderland of Narnia. So our take is this: having a Satyr hanging around a hot, tropical climate, who can potentially whisk you away to an icy escape is a good pet to have.
She knows her way around a bow and a rocking hair braid. We volunteer her as tribute.
Okay? Okay. Who better to create a small, tropical infinity with?
Sarcastic, hot, and loyal to a fault is pretty uncombatable, irresistible combination. Throw in shirtless, and a beach? It won’t be vampires holding him geographically hostage anymore. It’ll be two adorable bibliophiles and the Pacific Ocean.
He’s devastatingly handsome, has an accent, and likes to read. Need we say more? While he’s sitting shirtless in his duster reading Louis L’amour aloud in a Russian accent, you have both visual and audio. Should Hermoine accidentally transform you into the Richelle Mead flavor of vampire, he’s your lunch.
Being stranded in a heaven on Earth demands having a gorgeous, half-angel being in residence. The fact that his mouth makes him just as desirable as his body, and he can ward against demons, vampires, zombies, and warlocks is just a bonus.
Three words. She. Is. Kickass.
If you’re going to be stuck on a scrap of land in the middle of the ocean, having a BFF who’s father is the god of the sea just makes good sense. Plus, he’s adorbs.
Because let’s be real….who wouldn’t want THAT on a deserted island with you? Not to mention, he could train you in the military arts to defend your keep, so that the only one ‘eaton’ on Tobias’s mouth is you.
And there you have it, ladies and gentleman! What characters would you pack in your suitcase?
