Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Top Ten Characters To Get
Their Own Spin-Off
Let’s be honest here: 96.2% of the time, I enjoy following the antics of the supporting characters rather than the main protagonist. Why? Beats me. Not gonna lie though, thinking of characters in books was kind of harder than normal for me. And because I watch television shows almost as much, if not more, than reading books…I decided to do halfsies and threw in some worthy t.v. characters that should also get their own spin off show.
Maya (The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry – Gabrielle Zevin)
Her own series of narratives when she discovers all the little noted commentary/summaries per book (if you remember the start of chapters).
Manchee (The Knife of Never Letting Go – Patrick Ness)
The Knife of the Ruddy Dog—NY Times Bestseller easy peasy.
The Driver (More Than This – Patrick Ness)
The beginning of it all—I need it.
Gollum (Lord of the Rings – J.R.R Tolkien)
Uh, I mean, why not?
The Victors: An Anthology (Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins)
Call me sadistic but I’m really interested in seeing how the previous arenas panned out from start to finish (even if it’s just short stories). Old characters, new characters, anything. Just give me more unique arenas—and from characters who aren’t part of the main ensemble!
Uriah Pedrad (Divergent – Veronica Roth)
Aside from being my favourite character, his perspective as a Dauntless born initiate would be rad. I’d also rewrite a few things, just saying.
Uh, read the next section at your own discretion. There may be spoilers pertaining to certain shows (but I tried to not be so obvious).
Asher Millstone & Connor Walsh (How To Get Away With Murder)
These fellas share the better character dynamics in this show. While Davis carries this show, the random quirks of these two in a web series involving daily antics, insults, what have you, will suffice.
Donna & Norma (Suits)
…If you’ve even watched an episode of Suits, you’d know why Donna is perfect. Sorry, but no other personal assistant has reached her slayer status. On top of that, I want to meet this elusive Norma.
Tom Keen (The Blacklist)
I swear everyone on the official Facebook group has a strong dislike for him but I think there’s just so much that’s unknown (you know, after yesterdays Fall season finale…)
Felicity // League of Assassins (Arrow)
It’s a tossup, really. They’re slowly starting to explore deeper into the cult-ish faction that is the League of Assassins, so I can’t really say that they won’t be delving into this. On the other hand, my interests in ship-jumping between Olicity/Barricity could be relieved by her just getting her own show. Ugh, the latest episode with Felicity was right in the feels (and on an unrelated note: I was waiting for Nolan Funk to bust out into a Glee medley).
Leopold Fitz & Gemma Simmons (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D)
Basically, it would be so neat if they could have their own “Bill Nye The Science Guy” sort-of educational show.
Annnd there you have it for this week!
I’ll be doing haphazard blog hopping throughout the day/week for today’s top ten post so I do apologize if my responses are a bit slower this week (side story: I read on some blog survey a while back that I provide ‘guaranteed comments/feedback’ to a TTT post. And to you who said this, you’re pretty cool! But now that means I must uphold this tradition–even in busy times of the Toronto International Book Fair this week!)
