A big thanks to Mr & Mrs NavigatingWorlds for tagging me last month. I kind of changed the name of the tag and whatnot, but I DID use their questions, so it’s all good.
1 ) You need a team of 3 people to help you overthrow an emperor. Which fictional characters would you recruit and why?
Superman. Pretty self-explanatory
Tisamon from Adrian Tchaikovsky’s Shadow of the Apt series. Awesome swordsman and willing to kill, where Superman isn’t.
Any character from a Terry Brooks’ Shannara book. They’d be the sacrifice so it didn’t seem as easy as it was.
2 ) What is the most surprising twist you have come across in a novel?
I can’t remember, honestly. I know there have been several times that a point of view was revealed to be a 180 from what the reader was led to expect, but no specific title springs to mind.
3 )You are hunting for a house to buy with your family. The only places available are Northern Westeros (north of the wall), Mordor, and Arrakis. At which location will you purchase a home?
Arrakis. I’d be a rich water merchant and live in comfort in Arrakeen * wink *
4 ) If you had to attend a fictional school of magic, which one would you select?
I’d take the one on one lessons from Kulgan in Raymond Feist’s Magician series.
5 ) You are the likable, but slightly useless, best friend to the main character. What one skill keeps you out of trouble?
Not being afraid to piss in the woods. Nothing is scarier to Alpha Predators than the ferocious scent of a Bookstooge, especially a slightly useless one.
6 ) If you had to read every single book by one author, which author would you pick?
No contest. Dickens. There is a reason the man’s writings are “Classic”.
7 ) Which is the best country in the world?
Kyrgyzstan Forever!!! Any country with a “K” and a “Y” AND a “Z” has got to be awesome. And by the way, I see you, my secret Kyrgyztanian friend, lurking around.
8 ) You are on an epic quest to save the world. You can take either a phoenix, a dragon, or an old bearded man. Which do you choose?
Dragon. I can BE the old bearded man.
9 ) Wine or beer?
Teetotaler here, so I’m going with “Energy Drink”, preferably VPX Bang.
10 ) You have struck it lucky and book blogging is your full-time pursuit but you need a co-author for your blog. Who do you choose and why?
Nobody. I explain why here:
Now I’m supposed to come up with my own questions and threaten you all with bad luck or something unless you do the tag in 10 days.
