➽1) What fictional character do you want Santa to leave under your Christmas tree?
Oh gosh, either Manon Blackbeak from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas or Magnus Damora from Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes! Or, like, both! Please?
➽2) What character do you want to kiss under the mistletoe?
You guys who have read the series, please don’t think I’m a terrible person, but I’d totally pick Aalea from Nevernight by Jay Kristoff, even with the chance that I might die afterwards!
➽3) You write your Christmas list for Santa, what are the top 5 books on it?
- Silksinger (Dreamdark, #2) by Laini Taylor
- The Easton Press edition of Pride & Prejudice
- Any “letters” I don’t have in the Penguin Drop Caps books
- Bad Mommy by Tarryn Fisher (because I don’t own it for some reason?)
- The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There (Fairyland #2) by Catherynne M. Valente (because I own all the rest form Book Outlet except this one!)
➽4) It’s secret Santa at Hogwarts, what do you most want to receive?
Is “for people to actually give a shit about other humans and/or our Earth” a really negative answer? Probably. I’ll just go with what I want the most under the tree, and that’s a weighted comforter because 1.) I’m old and 2.) anxiety is real, my friends. (Somehow, I still made this such a negative answer, haha!)
➽5) You get to the spend the day with the characters and movie adaptation actors from one fandom, what do you pick?
This is a hard question, but I keep coming back to The Lord of the Rings, just because I love those characters with every fiber of my being, and I really enjoy most of the actors. Ian McKellen, Sean Astin, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Elijah Wood, Sean Bean, Liv Tyler…. Like, I’d love to chill with any of them, honestly. (But especially Viggo…. Boiiii…)
➽6) What fictional animal would you like to replace Rudolph and be able to meet on your roof?
Oh my gosh, without question it has to be Solovey from The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy #1) by Katherine Arden! Probably my favorite animal companion of all time, and I want to hear all his sassy banter with me and Santa.
➽7) You invite 10 fictional characters to your New Year’s Eve party, who do you pick?
This legit is such a hard question, because you have to make sure they will (for the most part) get along with one another! I guess I will do five pairs, so at least everyone will have someone they feel somewhat comfortable with!
- Falcio and Brasti (poor Kest) from Sebastien de Castell’s Greatcoats, who would honestly be the life of the party.
- Kvothe and Denna (might be a tad bit awkward at first) from Pat Rothfuss’ King Killer Chronicles, and who would perform the most beautiful music ever for me and all the guests!
- Blue and Gansy from The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater, because I feel like I could talk to both of them for hours about very different topics.
- Ben and Severin from The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, because they are my favorites and I must be around them to protect them at all costs.
- Lazlo and Sarai from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor, because they deserve a night to be happy together. Now, please excuse me while I go cry for the rest of my party.
➽8) What character would make a good Santa? (Doesn’t have to be appearance, personality counts too)
Like, I think I’m going to have to say Hagrid from Harry Potter, because he’s so sweet and kind and thoughtful. Yet, he is also big and soft and has an amazing beard. AND he could have so many awesome mythical creatures pulling his sleigh. Ahhh, I now need him to be the non-muggle Santa.
