Way back in high school, I was obsessed with the zombie apocalypse. No, I wasn’t the type of person who believed such an apocalypse was scientifically feasible, but I did enjoy the idea of it and read/watched tons of books/movies about it. That being said, when I came across this tag yesterday, I knew I needed to try it.
Here is the video I believe is the original, but for those who don’t want to watch it, here are the rules:
Choose 5 of your favorite books.
Choose 2 characters from each of those books.
Then put the characters in a 10 member team in the order that you pick them.
Okay, let’s go!
The five books I choose are Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone) by J. K. Rowling, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, and The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris.
I picked books that many people have read or at least heard about. So, let’s torture some of these characters!
1. The First Person to Die
Mrs. Bennet (from Pride and Prejudice)
(She runs too slow, what can I say?)
2. The Person You Will Trip To Get Away From The Zombies
Mr. Wickham (from Pride and Prejudice
(yep, no regrets there)
3. The First Person To Turn Into a Zombie
Albus Dumbledore (from Harry Potter)
(and won’t he make a stately zombie! Better than him dying, at least)
4. The Person Who Trips YOU to Get Away from the zombies
Petunia Dursley (from Harry Potter)
(Her long neck really helps her keep a lookout for zombies)
5. The Idiot of the Team
Augustus Gloop (from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
(He fits more for the person I would pick to trip, but ah well)
6. The “Brains” of the Team
Violet Beauregarde (from C&TCF)
(Great, we’re doomed. However, we are set for gum!)
7. The Team’s Medic
Calcifer (from Howl’s Moving Castle)
(He is a fire demon, so he must be useful! Not sure how he’s going to mend broken bones, though.)
8. The Weapons Expert
The Witch of the Waste (from HMC)
9. The Brawler
Buffalo Bill (from Silence of the Lambs)
(When he’s not murdering zombies to get their skin, that is!)
10. The Team Captain
Dr. Hannibal Lector (from SotL)
(Yep, we are definitely doomed now! We don’t even need zombies to eat us now, someone else will…)
Let me know your answers to this fun tag! Also, if you didn’t get any of these references, let me know. I’d be happy to clear up any confusion. Follow my blog for more madness and, as always,
Best wishes in your life full of adventure,
