The Zombie Apocalypse Book Tag!

Stolen from Beth @ Reading Every Night with lots of love and absolutely no remorse.

Rules:
  • Choose five books!
  • Randomly set up your books in order.
  • Flip to a random page in each book, and write the first names you see.
  • Put the names in the categories listed below in the order you saw them.
  • Cry at how screwed you are.

HERE WE GO.

The First Person to Die: Moiraine (The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan)

Oh, frick. Yup, if she's the first person to die, we're all done for.

The Person You Trip to Escape the Zombies: Liandrin (The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan)

OH YES. VERY MUCH TRIP. ALL THE TRIPPING HAS OCCURRED.

The Person That Trips You to Get Away From the Zombies: Neil (The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic)

Although he's definitely not the most amoral of the Foxes, I can still see Neil as this character. He just has a really strong instinct for survival.

(WELL, EXCEPT WHEN HE'S CHALLENGING A MEMBER OF A DANGEROUS JAPANESE GANG ON LIVE TELEVISION, BUT OTHER THAN THAT.)

The Team Idiot: Andrew (The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic)

More like "the one everybody thinks is the team idiot but is actually the team genius, just more than slightly psychotic and apathetic".

The Brains of the Group: Armand (The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice)

I think he and Andrew could definitely compare notes on the most efficient ways to mentally + physically torture people. I could see them working as brains team, although I also feel they'd both look down on the other.

The Team Medic: Daniel (The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice)


He's a pretty decent person all around (and obviously isn't squeamish about blood and death and such), so I could see him doing this.

The Weapons Expert: Wylan (Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo)

I mean, this is literally what he did in the book, so I'm not going to argue.

The Team Brawler: Nina (Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo)

I....can see this. I feel like Nina is very easy to piss off, and she doesn't have any qualms about expressing her distaste - even though she doesn't fit the typical profile of a brawler.

The First to Turn Into a Zombie: Sauron (The Peoples of Middle-earth by J.R.R. Tolkien)

When he returns to Mordor after this whole apocalypse thing is over, can he take Liandrin with him?

Finally, the Team Leader: Galadriel (The Peoples of Middle-earth by J.R.R. Tolkien)

I kid you not when I say that any fear I had about the fate of our group has totally dissolved. If anything can get us out of the zombie apocalypse, it's her.
