Yay! Here goes :


Favorite Male Cahrachter

Josef - Of course, Eli hates me now, but I'm going with Josef.

•Favorite Female Character

Nico.....but you knew that, right? XD

•Least Favorite Character

Beehive, for the way she treats Eli and Sparrow for the way he treats everybody else, particularly Miranda and Nico.

•Favorite Ship

Josef/Nico! Who else?!

•Favorite Friendship

Uh....let's go with Eli and Josef. I would say Josef and Nico for this one also but I already have them shipped, and I love reading Josef and Eli's interactions.

•Favorite Quote

"The Last Place a Man looks is under his own feet." I even have an icon.

•Worst Character Death (if any)

Probably Josef's mother's death in SW...When Josef was crying. I would say Mellinor, but I know he's back in SEnd XD

•This made me so happy you have no idea Moment

When Nico beats the demon in SEater, because she hears a voice that sounds like Josef and Eli and Tesset and Nivel and Miranda telling her that the only human spirit a wizard can control is her own, and she realizes it's her own voice. It's just so awesome that she is finally recognizing her own identity, shaped by all the people who she looks up to and cares about.

•Saddest Moment

Nico on the roof in Osera crying because she thinks she's a monster who no one could love :...(


•Favorite Location

Home! Home was awesome! There totally should have been more Home.



Your turn!!
Lengmanderelee on August 9th, 2013 09:06 pm (UTC)
Wait, why do you think Eli hates you?? O__O I'm sure he only hates Beehive! I love your "This made me so happy you have no idea Moment"!! That was one of my favourite scenes too. Actually almost everything in SEater provoked some kind of emotional response from me!

So, do I do this meme for this book too, or do you have to give me a different fandom?
Booksrgood4ubooksrgood4u on August 9th, 2013 11:31 pm (UTC)
LOL, Eli hates me for choosing Josef over him as my favorite male character! He cannot fathom that anyone would like his grumpy, surly swordsman better than him XD But he'll get over it.

Ooh...that wasn't very clear, was it? Uhm, I meant that you would do the meme for the fandom you posted so we could compare answers. And we can do as many fandoms as we want, too.
Lengmanderelee on August 10th, 2013 04:26 pm (UTC)
Oh I see! Well then here are my answers! They're quite similar t yours, actually. ^^

Favorite Male Cahrachter

I'm going to have to go with Josef, even though sometimes he annoys me. I just love the contrasts in him. I love how he's supposed to be this rugged, uncaring, heartless swordsman, and yet he turns around and becomes like a life philosopher and takes care of a damaged young girl and loves her and protects her with everything he has. And even though he frustrates me with how clueless he is about love, I still really appreciate the fact that despite being unable to mentally recognize it, he still physically and emotionally acts upon it. I think I'm just really harsh on him, because I expect far too much from him, because I really think that deep down he's capable of it.

Favorite Female Character

Well, it started out with Miranda, but considering how much more fanworks I've created for Nico, it's clear who really receives more investment. ^^ I like Nico because of how genuine her insecurities are, and how her strength comes from not being the most dangerous creature around, but from overcoming years and years of emotional abuse and pursuing to defeat what everyone else tells her is undefeatable.

Least Favorite Character

Sara Banage. Ugh. At least I can sort of understand the kind of stress and betrayal that Benehime feels she gets for being the Shepherdess. But Sara's just plain selfish.

Favorite Ship

Josef and Nico. Yes. Yes.... yes. We need a ship name for them. I propose Jonico? It sounds better than Nisef. Or maybe we should go for something more symbolic like ShadowHeart... but that takes as long as typing Josef and Nico.

Favorite Friendship

Miranda and Gin!! I love how loyal they are to one another, and how they both keep each other from doing something foolish. It doesn't always work, but they try really hard! I love how Miranda never treats any of her spirits like "servants", but rather, like friends.

Favorite Quote

"You. Are. Nico. That's the only thing that matters."

Sorry Books, I guess that's quite spoilery.

Worst Character Death (if any)

NARA!!! Oh I felt sooooo bad for her!! Served her beloved for 800 years, and then a smug little boy comes around and then all of a sudden she's unwanted, unneeded, unloved.

This made me so happy you have no idea Moment

Probably that same scene you mentioned. Nico doesn't really get any more "real" triumphs other than that one.

Saddest Moment

I have one, but it's in SEnd, and I really think I should stop spoiling you. XD So I'll go with the same scene you wrote. Because it just broke my heart to see little Nico think like that about herself.

Favorite Location

Slorn's house with the chicken legs! Nothing beats a mobile house on chicken legs. It's even more awesome than Howl's Moving Castle.
Booksrgood4ubooksrgood4u on August 10th, 2013 11:01 pm (UTC)
I was wondering whether you'd choose Miranda or Nico as your favorite female character! And I totally agree with your assessment of Josef. It's not that I don't love Eli or anything, but Josef has a depth that sometimes Eli doesn't. And I think that maybe we're harsh on him because we know what he is capapble of, and it's only his willful blindness that keeps him from recognizing anything between him and Nico. And I'm fine with Jonico....certainly beats Nisef, like you said, or worse Joni XD


You're right, Nara's death was pretty bad...And Beehive was pretty much like, "Gee, life's tough when you're 400 year's old." I chose Theresa's though, because I think that she really did love Josef a lot - remember, in the beginning of SW, she was like "I was hoping to give him a few more years." And I think he really loved her too, but he never felt like he could make her happy. And then it was too late. And she was so happy to see him when he showed up just before Lenette killed her....*sniff*


Cooler that Howl's Moving Castle?! But Slorn doesn't have a stove that sings about saucepans!! But is sure would be funny if he did XD

Truth Series!


Ha! I gave you 2 to do! Can't wait to see what you put!
Booksrgood4ubooksrgood4u on August 11th, 2013 12:59 am (UTC)
Truth Series:


Favorite Male Character

Strell!! He's awesome enough to deserve two exclamation points. But an honorable mention to Redal-Stan, too, and Connen-Neute. And Useless. And yes, that was a cop out. I love them all.

•Favorite Female Character

Alissa. Who else?

•Least Favorite Character

Bailic. Duh....Though I did really hate Lodesh at first, too.

•Favorite Ship

Strell and Alissa. What should we call that ship? Strissa? Alell?

•Favorite Friendship

Alissa and Conen-Neute. They're so cute XD They're like brother and sister :)

•Favorite Quote

Ugh...There's "I'll, I'll, I'll...I don't know what I'll do, but you won't like it!" and there's also "It's amazing what a good book can do," as well as "This is something I wish to avoid, yes?" XD


•Worst Character Death (if any)

Uhm....Talon. And well, the end of Lost Truth, even though no one *actually* died....*sniff, sniff*


•This made me so happy you have no idea Moment

"Shut up" *kiss*

•Saddest Moment

The end of Lost Truth....I have never, *never* cried so hard over a book as I did over that last chapter.

•Favorite Location

The Hold. But I also love Ese'Nawoer in FT.
1221bookworm1221bookworm on August 13th, 2013 02:06 am (UTC)
Yep, Yup, and Yeah. I agree with pretty much everything here. I think we should call it Salissa! But Strell does deserve two exlamation points, and more. Yeah for Strell!! !! :) :) (There, I beat *your* two exlamation points :P )

I also like the part with the proposal (name left intentionally blank) and when Alissa is all like "what does it say when the girl spills the food" and he's all That means she's from the foothills. and just how cute it was that she was so oblivious. and the whole wedding bit. And even Capt. Sholan in it made it funny.

The whole end of Lost Truth was hard. I cried for Useless, too. It hurt him so much, and he really loved her, and she just didn't realize or appreciate it.

Favorite Male Character

Paul McCormick :)

•Favorite Female Character

Briony/Knife/Peri

•Least Favorite Character

Bluebell....or Mallow....They're both pretty lousy.

•Favorite Ship

Paul and Peri, of course!

•Favorite Friendship


Linden and Timothy. I wanted them to get together, because they did make a good team. But, ohwell. I like Rob and Rhosmari, too, so I'm not too disappointed.

•Favorite Quote

This is hard, because I haven't read this series as much as the others, but I really liked in Spell Hunter when Peri was like "I love you, too, Thorn"

•Worst Character Death (if any)

Uhm....Amaryllis. I felt bad when she died because I spent so much time thinking she was evil :(


•This made me so happy you have no idea Moment

Peri getting to be human :D But I also when Paul beat up one of those Blackwing bros.for hurting Peri. They totally had it coming XD

•Saddest Moment

Amaryllis' Death, again. Like I said...I felt bad

•Favorite Location

The Oak! It sounds so neat inside!!
Lengmanderelee on August 12th, 2013 12:55 am (UTC)
I agree with most of these!! They're probably what I'd write too. Except maybe the part where you wanted Timothy and Linden to get together. =P I was sort of relieved when they didn't. I thought since Paul treated Linden like his daughter, and Timothy is his cousin... well, it's a little too close to family for my taste. XD But I'm glad they're good friends!

I think my favourite quote was that tidbit Paul said about stealing. Can't quite remember it now, but I remember laughing so much when I read it.

I'd have to go with Garan with worst character death. I did not *expect* it at all. At least Amaryllis got a fulfilling life, but Garan... T__T

And yes, The Oak is awesome!
1221bookworm1221bookworm on August 13th, 2013 02:01 am (UTC)
I agree with most of your answers, so I'm not going to repeat the whole thing, but some of the ones I came up with different answers for:

Favorite Quote:
Who says I can't fly? WHen all this is over, I'm buying an airplane ticket! - I just love her spunk about the whole situation - and how she stuck with her original decision, and how Paul would have supported her no matter what she decided.

I also like the part where TImothy overhears them talking about Linden and the future of the Oak. It was nice to see how they kept encouraging the other when they got cranky..... ANd how Paul described LInden as Peri's daughter....

I agree with Timothy and LInden for the best friendship. ANd I think it's good for them to have *non* lover friends, too. Just wait till they start complaining to each other about Rob and RM.....

I think the saddest moment was when Peri went to poison Paul and she actually put in his cup. I was so disappointed in her. But she turned it all around nicely.

Queen's Thief!!!
Booksrgood4ubooksrgood4u on August 11th, 2013 02:06 am (UTC)
Favorite Male Character

Sophos....Or Gen. I can't decide. I love Sophos for being so cute and I love Gen for being so...Gen XD

•Favorite Female Character

Irene! I think she's awesome, and she deserves a lot of love for all the hate she ahs to put up with the rest of the time.

•Least Favorite Character

Nahuserfishy. And his 'brother ambassadors'.....thing 1 and thing 2 --I can't rememeber their names right now XD

•Favorite Ship

Gen and Irene <3

•Favorite Friendship

Gen and Sophos! Sneaking out at night for drinks and joking about who stole whose food XD

•Favorite Quote

"I'm not as dumb as you think I am, even if you are!" And of course, everyone's favorite "I love your eyes, I love your're ears, and I love every one of your ridiculous lies."

•Worst Character Death (if any)

Pol. Especially when poor little Sophos is crying and saying that its' his responsibility to tell Pol's family.

•This made me so happy you have no idea Moment

The entire end of KoA. All of it.

•Saddest Moment

Gen after you know...QoA.

•Favorite Location

Ediss's library.
Lengmanderelee on August 11th, 2013 06:51 pm (UTC)
Most of my answers are the same!! Even though I love Gen and love reading about him, I also really admire Sohpos. In a way, we're confident that Gen has the wits to outsmart everyone, but Sophos is more vulnerable, and that makes me worried about how he handles his problems.

Oh, and is it strange that I dislike Sejanus more than Nahuseresh? He was more annoying, I thought. At least Nahuseresh had a little bit of suave and subtlety. Sejanus was just so blunt.
1221bookworm1221bookworm on August 13th, 2013 02:10 am (UTC)
I think Sophos is lovable in his weakness. ANd there is defintely a need to worry about whether he can take care of himself, even if he begs to differ (I can swim very well.)

I don't think it is wierd to dislike Sejanus more. You expect Nahuseresh to be your enemy - you expect an assination attempt from him, and other less than desirable machinations as well. Sejanus, however was an Attolian. He might not like the king, and he may be involved in political manuvering for his house, but he really was so low in helping with the assination, that it was really treason. And that's the difference.
