Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
This Week’s Theme:Ten Childhood/YA Characters You’d Love To Revisit As Adults
Okay, so I seriously struggled with this topic and it’s like 10pm and I’ve only just got on my laptop because I babysit my younger siblings full time whilst my parents work and they were extra demanding today. I also have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow at 9am (ew!!!) so I’m like super rushing to try and get SOME sleep, haha.
Honestly this post is extremely incoherent and just me shouting. I apologise.
Covers = Goodreads
I need to know more about these guys! I’d love to see how they’re doing in 10 years. This is one of my fave friendship groups ever. Is Cas still ghost hunting? Has he seen Anna? Are Carmel & Thomas still disgustingly adorable? WHAT OTHER SUPERNATURAL CREATURES ARE TERRORISING THE WORLD?
HOW ARE MY SWEET BLACK BETTY CREW CHILDREN DOING? What is happening in the world since the end of In The Afterlight? How are the camps? What’s happening to the kids? IS EVERYONE SAFE AND HAPPY AND HAVING FUN TIMES? They better be.
LITERALLY EVERYONE from The Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan
I honestly mean everyone. I don’t even know what to say. I would LOVE to see everyone as adults. PERCABETH WEDDING? UM YES PLEASE. Hell, I’d be happy with seeing Annabeth and Percy doing the dishes and then watching some TV. Is my babe Thalia still kicking ass with Artemis? What is my sweet prince Nico up to? Is he happy? Did he and a certain son of Apollo live happily ever after? What about Jason and Piper? Hazel & Frank? LEO? ALL THE GODS AND GODDESSES AND CHIRON AND RACHEL AND EVERYONE WHO EVER MADE AN APPEARANCE.
LITERALLY EVERYONE from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Yeah, I know everyone in the entire blogosphere included this but I DON’T CARE. Of course my main interest is with the trio. I would love to see Life After Hogwarts. I wanna see them going to work and looking after their kids and having to deal with them getting into all kinds of mishaps. IS THERE A NEW EVIL WIZARD? Did the kids adjust to their weird names? What’s the rest of Dumbeldore’s Army up to? Especially Luna. I hope Luna’s happy. I HOPE ALL OF TEDDY LUPIN’S DREAMS CAME TRUE. What about the Hogwart’s professors? Do you think they all started to relax once Harry left and then they see his kids and more Weasley’s on the list and they’re like, ‘…..not again.’.
It would be so cool seeing a Ten Year Reunion of all the Lumberjanes girls and Jen! It’s not even a doubt in my mind that they are all still 500% friends. I’m getting emotional thinking about it. Ahh. A ten year reunion back at camp aND OF COURSE THEY GO ON A CRAZY MYSTICAL ADVENTURE. Maybe one of the girls is even a camp counsellor now and Jen is in charge of the place :’).
Honestly Noelle could give me 200 pages of Ballister doing his taxes whilst Nimona shapeshifts into a shark and I’d be happy. Did a certain two characters get married and live happily ever after? Obviously. I hope the Kingdom is all chill and that Nimona’s happy and still being her badass self. I want to see everyone living together in the castle being a cute family. I hope Ballister & Ambrosious started their own institute to train young heroes. You don’t even understand how badly I need more of this graphic novel. A sequel. A prequel. Noelle writing some notes on a napkin. GIMME.
Certain Characters that I Can’t Mention because I Don’t Want to Spoil People from The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
I just hope certain people and certain couples are happy. I hope everyone in Fox Way is happy. I love these characters so much. I just want them to be happy. I’ve said happy too many times, but I don’t care. I’m so emotional. This series is my entire world right now. I am so sorry at how vague this is, but it’s so hard to say anything because I don’t want to spoil anyone. I want to know what’s going on in Henrietta itself in ten years. What are the new Aglionby kids like? Any new Kings need awakening?
Kamala from Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson
I like to think that Kamala has taken on a mentor like role and is helping other inhuman kids learn to control their powers and balance their lives. I can definitely see her taking these kids under her wing because she sees herself in them. She’s totally still kicking ass with the Avengers. I hope she’s managed to catch a break. I hope I get to hug her and tell her how wonderful she is.
Yeah okay so that’s only 8, but……….. This post is a big enough mess be thankful I stopped here.
