Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers. (Meme description from The Broke and the Bookish)

Assets: excellent problem solver, reliable moral character

Liabilities: extreme paranoia

Most Likely to Bond With: Marc, Sam

Notes: Cia probably wouldn't trust any of us, thinking the entire deserted island was a Testing trap. She'd hang out on the outside of the group like Marc. They might form a tenuous bond over their "outcast" status. But, Cia would also take the opportunity to learn as many skills as she could from everyone, like medical things from Sam. I think he'd enjoy her dedication and teach her as much as he could. Still, I have the feeling she'd secretly build a boat and sail away on her own.

Assets: excellent thief, good at reading people, cunning, entertaining

Liabilities: mischievous

Most Likely to Bond With: Celaena, Chase, Harper

Notes: Gen would be a great entertainer, incorrigible flirt and keep all of us laughing. He'd be BFFs with Celaena. They'd have legendary fights, constantly testing who could be the better criminal. Their sneaking and stealth competitions would drive the rest of us nuts. The only big problem I could see would be Gen becoming bored and deciding to cause some mischief by stealing something, probably something of Vlad's.

Assets: Pyrokinesis, mind control, super strength, seasoned warrior, can fly, heightened senses

Liabilities: would need to drink our blood, could kill us, could fly off and leave

Most Likely to Bond With: Addie

Notes: Assuming Vlad didn't fly off from the deserted island, or kill us, he'd be greatly entertained by Chase and Celaena's antics. Gen would remind him of Bones and annoy the heck out of him, especially if Gen played keep away with one of his things. Addie might bring out his more princely side, because she's a proper royal, even if he's never heard of her country. Plus, Addie is a respected warrior and adventurer. He'd have a soft spot for her. I would be too scared to even talk to him, but I'd laugh at all of his sassy sarcasm.

Assets: A magic tablecloth that never stops producing food, brave, seven league boots, magic spyglass

Liabilities: none really, but missing Rhys

Most Likely to Bond With: Vlad, Derek, Harper, me, Gen

Notes: Addie could be our hero, taking each of us back to land with her seven league boots. She'd take the time to rescue each one of us. Vlad would remind her of the dragon Vollys, with his fire powers and intimidation. She'd be scared of him at first, but warm up to him once she got to know him a little better. Derek would adore Addie because of her embroidery and her magic tablecloth. She'd ask it to produce honey, just for him. Harper, with her prim and determined attitude, would intrigue Addie and make her laugh. I'd treat Addie like a sister and be very protective of her. Addie might like the feeling of having a sister figure again and enjoy me. She'd adore Gen, his stories, his bravery, his drama, how similar he is to her sister Meryl and husband Rhys.

Assets: easily fed, can mend clothing, good sense of humor

Liabilities: loves getting honey-drunk, mischievous

Most Likely to Bond With: Addie, Gen, Celaena, maybe me?

Notes: He would hate Vlad's superior attitude (just like Kiaran's) and work with Gen to get back at Vlad any way he could. Vlad would probably try to singe his wings in response.He'd call Addie his darling because she'd be so sweet to him. Celaena would remind him of Aileana and he'd love her brass and cocky attitude. I'd enjoy just watching Derek, being mystified by his tiny size.

Assets: a planner, has laser focus, could probably keep most everyone in line

Liabilities: tied to David

Most Likely to Bond With: Addie, Chase, Vlad, me

Notes: She'd enjoy having me and Addie around, willing to assist her in any way possible. She would take  a protective role over Addie as well, enjoying having someone to take care of. Her pit-bull determination would get us to craft a sea-worthy vessel within a week, no matter what materials were on the island. I think she'd normally clash with Celaena over who was the authority figure. But, if Harper actually let herself go and have fun, she, Chase and Celaena could come up with legendary plans and schemes to meddle or torment everyone on the island. Plus, I'd want someone around who reminded me of home and why I should leave the island. Harper would have to ask Vlad for fighting and sword lessons, because her pride would not allow her to stoop to asking Celaena. Her biggest liability would be anxiety over not being able to protect David from so far away.

Assets: assassin, good sense of humor, well-read, magical

Liabilities: assassin, easily bored

Most Likely to Bond With: Chase, Vlad, Addie, Gen (maybe me?)

Notes: I'd take any excuse to meet Celaena, even if it were on a deserted island. I'd probably alternate between trying to stalk her, admiring her, and being too shy to even talk to her. Come to think of it, I might just get on her last nerve. Celaena would of course miss her creature comforts, but be perfectly able to survive. Harper's proper and authoritative attitude would annoy her, but she'd admire the girl's guts. She'd have the best times competing with Gen and listening to Vlad and Addie's adventures. Celaena would love planning schemes with Chase to prank or mess with Harper.

Assets: were-panther, authority-like figure, super strength, super senses

Liabilities: missing Faythe

Most Likely to Bond With: Celaena, possibly Cia

Notes: His username and his password is Faythe. He'd be in a lot of man-pain over not being able to see her. In fact, he'd probably get on all of our nerves talking about her so much. He's hot, so I'd enjoy watching him help us build some kind of vessel. He'd like Celaena because she's as ballsy and sarcastic as Faythe. Celaena on the other hand, would probably think him a lovesick wimp most of the time, but she'd be jealous of his body strength. Marc would let Harper delegate unless he really had a problem with what she was suggesting. Marc is a good leader, but an even better soldier.  He'd be interested in Cia because of her paranoia and secrecy. He might even shift in order to stalk her on the island, who knows?

Assets: Cunning, ambitious, intelligent, observant, good judge of people

Liabilities: meddler

Most Likely to Bond With: Celaena, Harper, Gen, me

Notes: Chase would love watching all the drama play out and probably have a hand in causing most of it. She'd admire Celaena, Addie and Harper's personal strength, self-made women, like herself. Gen would make her laugh, and probably indulge her by playing a part in all of her schemes. Addie she'd like, but maybe not bond deeply with her. At first I thought she'd been insecure about being on an island with people she knew no scandals about. But, I realized she'd start collecting facts as soon as her feet touched ground. In fact, she'd probably stick close to me and try to get all the information I have on the other characters.

Assets: doctor, werewolf, super senses, super strength, friendly

Liabilities: depression

Most Likely to Bond With: everyone, except maybe Vlad.

Notes: We need at least one medical professional on hand. And I need at least one piece of eye candy I'm not too intimidated by to talk to. I don't think Sam would like Vlad, because vampire, but otherwise Sam could be pleasant and get along with everyone. His biggest liability would be depression and wanting to kill himself, but I think he got over that after he gained a fairy lover. But he could miss her. Some advantages to having Sam are he could sing amazing songs and teach all of us to speak Welsh (or what I like to call wizard.)
