Hop on over to Melissa’s blog to read the questions. The object of the game is to bring your character(s) out of the box. This week’s questions are in honor of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games.
1) Probably District 11. I feel like he would have been friends with Rue.
2) He wouldn’t look forward to killing anyone. But I think he’d get a kill or two in. He’d sacrifice himself for people like Rue and Katniss.
3) He would align himself with Katniss – I think he’d only be drawn to those characters who are playing to survive, not to win. If you understand the distinction.
4) Cynical anti-hero all the way.
5) His sister, Anabel.
6) He would try to lead a revolution, because he’s spirited and would definitely feel wounded by the wrongness of the Hunger Games. But he’d be doing it to protect everyone around him and he’d probably be among the first to die.
1) Probably District 12. And he’d feel really put upon about it.
2) He’d really want to take out the Careers just to prove that he could.
3) He wouldn’t align himself with anyone. I feel like he’d be the person with crazy eyes hidden in the trees, covered with mud and blood.
4) He’d probably be attracted to the smart, beautiful girl who also refused to align herself with anyone. If he could make it past the Careers, it’d be Paul and this girl in the end. And he’d kill her – though with some reservation.
5) No one.
6) No. He’s too busy worrying about how all of this affects him. Not the people around him.
1) I’d have to say The Capitol. I don’t know if she’s really as flighty and stupid as the rest of the people in The Capitol. Maybe she’s 50% Capitol-esque and 50% Cinna-minded.
2) She wouldn’t be part of the games, obviously. But she’d watch them with one eye closed.
3) She would probably route for Paul, even if she didn’t know him.
4) She’d be attracted to Paul because she’d find the fact that he’s this downtrodden guy from District 12 who is surviving on his own very charming in a cliche sort of way. Anabel likes cliche disguised as unique and brooding.
6) She might secretly support a revolution.
