Daughter Of Athena, Princess, Or Delinquent Girl Scout? – Teens Can Write, Too! August 2014 Blog Chain

tcwt-3[1]This month’s prompt is:

What characters are you most like?

I actually wrote a little bit about this in an April 2013 post titled The Tale of the Three Characters, but fear not, readers! This post WILL NOT be a rehash of the older one – I’ve since thought of several other characters whose personalities resemble mine!

Let’s get started.

1. Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan

Intelligent, bold, geeky, and somewhat bossy – those words describe me to a T. I’ve admired Annabeth since I first began reading the series back in sixth grade (or thereabouts), and she’s since grown to be one of my favorite characters from those stories.

And whenever I take those goofy fandom quizzes that sort you into different groups, I always end up with ‘daughter of Athena’ as my result. Yay!

(The only thing better than that would be being a daughter of Athena AND a hunter of Artemis, since Artemis doesn’t have kids. Face it, Artemis is awesome. I’d totally join her Ella_enchanted_(book_cover)[1]group because A) she kicks butt, B) her huntresses go on adventures with her, and C) it’s not like giving up guys would be hard for me!)

2. Ella from Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

Ella is mischievous and so am I. I will never stop being witty and dorky, and I will probably never stop embarrassing myself either. And I 100% approve of sliding down stair railings even when one is seventeen or eighteen years old.

Basically, I really like how even when Ella is grown, she retains some childlike qualities – but she isn’t childish. She isn’t afraid to act like a dork, if it means that she has fun. And she’s not afraid to sass people, even royalty. She seems like she’d be a very pleasant person to hang out with. She doesn’t take herself too seriously, but she’s not naïve either. A perfect combination.

I wouldn’t say no to my own Princess Charming, either. Or my own castle.

Ananka is on the far right - and with my new haircut, I actually look somewhat like her too.

3. Ananka Fishbein from the Kiki Strike series by Kirsten Miller

I wish these books were better-known, because they’re the actual best. Delinquent Girl Scouts solving crimes and kicking butt in New York City’s mysterious subterranean tunnels? BRING IT ON.

Each member of the group (which is collectively known as the Irregulars) was chosen for a particular skill – except Ananka. She was chosen for her massive library, and her voracious reading habit. Doesn’t that sound like a certain blogger by the name of nevillegirl?

I’m completely jealous of the Irregulars’ adventures, and enjoy daydreaming about what it would be like to be selected as one of them. I may not be a genius chemist or a budding computer hacker like the other girls, but if there’s hope for Ananka then there’s hope for me. Right? I mean, eventually she becomes one of the most valued members of the group!

Do you agree with any of my choices? If not, which other characters remind you of me? And which characters remind you of yourself?

    I’m afraid I’ve never read the Kiki Strike series, but I know already how kick-butt Annabeth and Ella are! I myself could only wish to be like them, but they’re still excellent characters to read!

  2. Miriam Joy says:

    Oh man. When I signed up for this prompt I had no idea what my answer is going to be. Having completely forgotten what the question was until reading your post, I still have no idea. Three days to figure it out. Let’s see if I remember to post on time this month.

  3. Mo says:

    These are all good (and I think accurate) choices. xD There are definitely some characters I associate with you, like Madame Vastra or Lindsey Lloyd, but they don’t really remind me of you, if that makes sense.

  5. Alexandrina Brant says:

    I am sad to say that neither of the personalities of the other two I know and only the Ella Enchanted of the *shudder* Anne Hathway version.
    Awesome post, nevertheless 😀

      Ehehe, the Anne Hathaway version was terrible. Which sucks, because I really really liked her in The Princess Diaries… I guess that wasn’t her fault, though. The movie version of Ella Enchanted was messed up beyond belief.

      Thank you! 🙂

  6. I’d love to be a hunter of Artemis. She is my favorite goddess.

  7. John Hansen says:

    Annabeth Chase is the coolest! God, I miss that series.
