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:
YA Antagonists You
Shouldn’t Trick Or Treat From
“Trick or Treat”-ing is basically the time of night during Hallowe’en where people go door to door and ask for candy. Now imagine if you hit up Young-Adult Villain Street. Let me tell you why you shouldn’t ring those doorbells and set yourself up for disappointment...or death?
I mainly poke fun at young-adult trilogies for the sake of satire, yeah? So enjoy the laugh and don’t take anything I say too seriously!
President Snow – The Hunger Games
Don’t. You’ll be asked to fight for your life against a ghost-kid in a white bedspread, a witch who can’t outrun shit because high-heels (note: Jurassic World lies), and probably Katniss.
IS IT WORTH THE MORSEL OF CANDY? (Yes, it is.)
He Who Must Not be Named – Harry Potter
Don’t even ring that doorbell. Just don’t. You think Voldy would hand out candy? Please. The doorbell is probably hardwired to some wand that’ll avada kedavra your face off before you even get to ask for a trick.
Jeanine Matthews a la Faction – Divergent
Trick or treat, you say?
Candor be like: “your costume disappoints me”
Abnegation be like: “thanks for your candy, we’ll distribute it to everyone else not you.”
Amity be like:
“some medicinal Cannibis with your candy–PEACE!”Erudite be like: “have a book.”
Dauntless be like: *throws you off the roof*
Film Jeanine be like: Have a box… (WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS BOX ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN’T OPEN IT?!).
WICKED – The Maze Runner
It’s honestly not even worth the expedition to make your way to anyone’s home. Just go to the drug store and buy yourself discounted candy after Hallowe’en or something idk…
The Darkling – The Grisha
Darkling: “Enjoy your candy!”
You: “Where? I don’t see it…?”
Darkling: “Don’t make me out to be a villain. It’s in there.”
Later that evening:
You: “Hey do you see what the Darkling gave us?”
… #thecandyisntreal #shadows
Mayor Prentiss – Chaos Walking
Be wary. You’ll ring that doorbell thinking you’ll get candy but he’ll end up convincing you that he needs the candy more and make you feel bad for your night out and you end up giving him everything you’ve got instead.
Vosch – The Fifth Wave
Honestly? You’d probably get a good haul from this guy. The more I think about it…the more I question this dude actually being a true villain.
The King – Throne of Glass
If you’re ready for a soulless life rid of the Hallowe’en spirit then yeah, sure, go ahead and request some candy. Otherwise, you’re just setting yourself up to get collar’d up...and not in the kinky way either.

Ruby/Clancy – The Darkest Minds
(Ah…I make myself laff.)
The nostalgia of trick-or-treating is real. Now I wait for discounts to happen on November 1 and I will buy all the discounted goods.
