Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island
1) Mr Darcy (Pride and Prejudice) – Ah, Mr. Darcy. I can see Mr. Darcy and I, living in an almost domestic routine on one of them deserted islands. I’d make him crappy fish soup and he’d say “You have bewitched me body and soul.”
2) Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games Trilogy) – For obvious reasons, Katniss would definitely be on the characters I’d take with me on a deserted island. This woman has seen more hostile environments and she’d be the perfect companion in case I want to, you know, survive and shit.
3) Katherine Pierce (The Vampire Diaries) – The perfect bitch. No, really. And there’s no one else as resourceful as Katherine. She uses every situation to her advantage. That’s absolutely awesome and overall useful if you find yourself on a deserted island.
4) Rosalie Hale (The Twilight Saga) – Rosalie, had she been given more of a plot in the books – would have been my book boyfriend. Rosalie is exactly the type of person I’d need with me on a deserted island – she wouldn’t let me lose my morale, she’d bitch and whine about me (and then protect me from crazy bugs) and Emmett would find a way to get to her, thereby assuring my rescue as well 🙂
5) Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter) – Neville is one character that has undergone one of the most classiest transformations from book one to book seven. By the time his seventh year at Hogwarts rolls by, gone is the scared, awkward, almost bumbling Neville; replaced by this fearless, strong and angry Neville, ready to pull Hogwarts out of its little “situation.”
6) Ansel Guillaume (Sweet Filthy Boy) – Ansel, admittedly, would be with me on a deserted island based on his pure hotness. And if the guy said “cerise” to me more than once a day, I’d keep him there with me. Forever.
Also: He’s into roleplay. *squee*
7) Holden Caulfield (The Catcher in the Rye) – I’ve connected with Holden on a personal level, just like thousands of other teenagers who’ve had access to his voice. He evokes a sense of I’m-not-alone-in-what-I’m-feeling in me, and who better for company than this guy with hands down the best inner dialogue ever?
8) Grayson Wyatt (Only With You) – I’ve only just finished reading Only With You and may I tell you that Grayson Wyatt can make the best food! All the very many times his cooking has been mentioned, I’ve drooled. But that’s pretty much for everything he’s done. He talks, I drool. He yells, I drool. He breathes, I drool.
9) Jay Gatsby (The Great Gatsby) – Now who wouldn’t want to be on a completely isolated island with Jay Gatsby? He’s the typical American hero; he’s rich and in the company of glamorous women and drives these amazing cars. And I’d probably spend all of our time grilling him about his shady past.
10) Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor (Aspen) – Aspen is one of my favourite characters from 2014. She’s new and fresh and all types of funny. She’s also real, and while she deals with a lot of issues, her strength pulls her through. But, the reason she’s on this list is because, I’d honestly love to meet her. She’s got this entire I-can-survive-no-matter-what-you-throw-at-me thing going around her, and I’d love to be around to witness!
