National List Month Week 2!

It's National List Month, a completely made up project I'm doing all October! Here's week 2!

Villains You Can't Help but Love

SPOILER WARNING: For the Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Mortal Instruments, and Divergent series.

1.) Luke Castellan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
   I don't know about you, but I totally started bawling when he died at the end of The Last Olympian. Why, Luke, why did you have to die? You redeemed yourself. Great. Fantastic. I loved that. But then you had to go and just die on us because of it!

2.) Voldemort (Harry Potter)
  I know, I know. He's a mass wizarding murder who splits his soul, causes the death of our favorite characters, and eats puppies for breakfast. But come on--he started out as just a poor little orphan kid. Maybe if he'd just had a set of good family members to mold him, he'd be a teacher or a wizard lawyer or whatever. It can't be all his fault that he's evil! And anyways, he's just so awesome. Name one other villain as dastardly and awesome as him. Go on. Try.

3.) Snidely Whiplash ("Dudley Do-Right")
   If you haven't seen "Dudley Do-Right," or "Rocky and Bullwinkle," I feel incredibly sorry for you. Sure, the show is a little cheesy at times, but come on. It's better than a lot of this newer stuff on TV.

4.) Raphael Santiago (The Mortal Instruments)
  While he isn't techincly a villian, and isn't techinicly evil, he's deffinitly not the nicest guy on the Fictionary Literature Playground. He's a totally wicked vampire dude who, while still not a great person, still visits his family each week. How sweet is that?

5.) Al (Divergent)
  We all pitied him. We all kind of liked him.We all were fooled by him. And admit it. We all cried a little for him.

5 1/2.) Peter, too. He's a horrible person, but you can't help but kind of like him anyway.

6.) J.K. Rowling

7.) And nearly all the other Young Adult authors...

    There you have it! I know I'm missing a bunch, but that's all I have time for today. Until then, stay geeky!

A Note on the Hamsters: I'm still trying to figure out how to get the thing off of the site (and figure out how it got there in the first place) but until then, feel free to play with it and stuff. It's actually kind of neat.

A Note on the Hamster

It appears that a small furry virtual creature has attempted to take over this blog. Never fear, a team of trained warlocks is attempting to remove it at this very moment. In the mean time, feel free to feed it and stuff. Perhaps it is only seeking food and will leave once it attains enough...

It's National List Month!

After an incredibly long hiatus, I am back! And this time I've come up with a project.
  This October is National List Month, a completely fake idea that I've just made up. Because of this, each week I will post a list of some sort. Here's week one!

Week One

Fictional Foods You Know You Want to Feast On

1.) Nectar and Ambrosia. 
   The minute I finished the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" books, the first thing I wanted to do was get me a big ol' plate of Ambrosia and a glass of Nectar. According to the books, it tastes exactly like your favorite food, plus it has magical healing powers. 

2.) Anything from the Harry Potter books.
  Chocolate frogs, earwax flavored jellybeans, cakes shaped like giant Snitches, who hasn't wanted to jump into the Harry Potter books with a fork and a knife to start feasting?  Even the real life foods like Treacle Tart and Pumpkin Juice seem tastier in the book.

3.) Anything from The Hunger Games.
   "The Hunger Games," was probably titled so due to the fact that you cannot reading it with out becoming hungry. Lamb stew, purple melon, tiny birds with orange juice flooding from it, miniature jello fruits--so many tasty treats! It might be worth facing 24 other kids trying to kill you for a taste of all that.

4.) Scooby Snacks.
  Admit it. You've always wanted to know how they've tasted. I'd definitely face a bunch of evil monsters for a taste of these delicious looking dog treats! Scooby Dooby Dooooo!!!!

5.)  Turkish Delight.
  No, not the regular kind. The magic kind from Narnia. Even if it is cooked up by the White Witch, it still sounds pretty great.

6.) Blue Drinks.
  Okay, actually I don't especially want to try this. If you've read "The Mortal Instruments," I bet you know what I'm talking about. Who would want to turn into a rat? Other than dark wizards in hiding after faking there death, I mean.

7.) Krabby Patty.
  How could this not make the list?!?!?! If you've watched Spongebob before without begging to taste this, you are not human. Each time I imagine biting into one, I totally feel bad for Plankton.

   And that about wraps up this weeks National List Week list. 
Are there any other fictional foods your dieing to try? Leave a comment!
