Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish.
I’m pretty sure we have a completely different school and lunch system over here in Ireland, compared to the States. When I was in school, I never had a lunch table as such – I was ushered into the cafeteria the first day, and never returned for the rest of my school career! Plus, it was ridiculously small, and the entire school population wouldn’t have fit at the tables. This forced us to have only two options: go outside if the weather was nice, or take over a classroom!
My list will be for either the lunch-table option, or as I did when I was in school: I could definitely see myself eating lunch with these characters in our own private classroom ;-)
I had originally intended to make my list a 50/50 equal split between guys and girls, but it’s quite close. Perry Palomino is my favourite female character of all-time, and I could imagine us as easy friends in school and both she and Dex were instantly on my list the minute I saw the topic for this week.
Celaena is a new favourite character of mine, and I’d love to see how an assassin would have behaved in school! Celaena has a girly-girl and mischievous streak, and I could imagine her teaming up with Allie and them being the pranksters of the bunch.
Allie can be quite rebellious, but she has bundles of inner strength, and nothing fazes her for long. She’s a loyal and supportive friend, and does her best to support those around her. Katy is the bookworm of the bunch, and she’d round out the dynamic of the other three very strong personalities nicely. Plus, lots of bookish conversations will never be a bad thing!
Can you imagine Dex Foray as a teenager? He would be a MUST at my lunch table, even though I can’t see him very comfortable anywhere near the cafeteria crowd in school. He'd be the king of rebellion out of my list, but in a fun and entertaining rather than a malicious way. Both Tucker and Peeta would be the kind hearted souls of the bunch. Tucker is a complete sweet-heart, and he’s such a loveable good guy. Once you're his friend, he'd have your back no matter what. Peeta is the ultimate people person, and I could see both he and Tucker would be the glue to keep everyone together.
I absolutely love Puck’s sense of humour! He’d be the silly one of the bunch, keeping everyone entertained. I could see both he and Roar, feeding off each other as both of them have quite sarcastic sense of humours. Actually, thinking about it, all six of these guys have awesome sense of humours! Varen would be one of the smartest of the bunch, and also the artistic one. He’d balance out some of the ego’s *cough* *glances at Dex and Puck*
I would have loved to include Elizabeth Bennett in my list, but I sort of think the dynamic between the ten I chose would create such a fun atmosphere. I'm a little surprised with how my list turned out. I mean, I've left out Daemon Black! When does that happen?! If we're talking about longevity over years in school, and without people tearing out each others throats, then I'm pretty happy with my list.
What do you think and who would you love to have had sitting at your lunch table in school?
