Dinner party tag

So this is another tag from YouTube, and I thought it would be fun. The idea is that you invite eleven people to a dinner party and all the people are characters from books, and here are my eleven people. 

1.    One character who can cook/likes to cook
I think Molly Weasley from the Harry Potter series. She always seems to make spectacular food. And she seems to enjoy making food for her family and their friends. I also think she’s a pretty awesome person

2.    One character who has money to fund the party
I would want Chandresh Christophe Lefevre from the Night Circus to throw the party. He has funds and a huge house and in the book he throws amazing parties, with intense themes. He would invite amazing guests and entertainment, maybe Celia or Marco, or Tsukiko, I think that he could throw a spectacular party

3.    One character who might cause a scene
Zaphod Beeblebrox. I know he’s insane and he would go completely over the top with everything, but I think he could cause interesting scenes. He could bring the party to a screeching halt because he would try to take over the Galaxy or something. Zaphod is fun though, he’d cause something spectacular to happen.

4.    One character who is funny/amusing
Mat Cauthon from the Wheel of Time books. He seems to always have something fun planned. He always has funny stories. He has a lot of memories that aren’t his and that could make for interesting stuff. He would start some gambling or play music or make off with all the women in the party because he’s a charming son-of-a-bitch.

5.    One character who is super social/popular
I just finished the first Vampire Academy book, and I have no imagination, apparently, so I thought maybe Lissa. She’s very popular before she does the whole compulsion thing and she’s nice and sweet and if she didn’t get along she could just compel them into liking her. That’s fun. I worry my inner sociopath is coming out.

6.    One villain
I’m going to say Moriarty, yes, let’s invite the psychopath. I don’t think he would kill anyone. He’d be sitting there pulling the strings and he’d do something awesome, pit people against each other, and it would be interesting. He’s not a get your hands dirty kind of guy, he’s a sit in the background and grin widely at the chaos he’s made.

7.    One couple – doesn’t have to be romantic
So this is another Night Circus character. I’d like Poppet and Widget to come. They’re twins, born the night the circus opened and they’ve grown up with it. They’re funny, they have little tricks and they have a really interesting dynamic, and you don’t get to see much of them in the book, so I’d like to see more of them.

8.    One hero/heroine
I would ask Phedre from the Kushiel’s legacy books. She’s really interesting, and she’s a sort of unlikely hero and I think that’s awesome. And she really is a hero, she saves her country again and again no matter what is required and that’s really impressive, so go her. I think she would be a perfect guest too, she knows everything about behaving in polite circles. She’d be great. And she and Moriarty could sit and figure each other out.

9.    One underappreciated character.
      I don’t know that she actually is underappreciated, but I would invite Sansa Stark. It feels like her family all write her off because she’s always done what she’s supposed to and never really broken rules or followed in Arya’s footsteps, she’s just this sweet underestimated girl. I feel like she’s never been able to show how good she can be. When she lives with Petyr she takes responsibility and she turns into this grown woman who does what she can and she learns and I really like her. She’s also learning from Petyr, which is making her more awesome. So I’d want her to come. And she’s a very polite and nice young woman so I think she’d get on well with the rest.

10. One character of your own choosing
Luna Lovegood. I would totally invite Luna Lovegood to come to my party. She is my favorite Harry Potter character. She’s funny, and weird and she’s delightfully awesome and she would confuse Moriarty. I think Luna would be a good guest.
