Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Check In With

Happy Top Ten Tuesday!

Love this topic, there are a lot of characters that I continue to wonder about!

1. Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling

What is Luna up to? She's probably leading an exciting life chasing Crumple-Horned Snorkacks, writing for the Quibbler, and starting a line of outrageous fantastical beast-themed hats.

2. Neville Longbottom from the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling

We do find out in the epilogue that Neville becomes the Herbology professor, and later Rowling revealed that he married Hannah Abbott. But...there must be some awesomeness that Neville is getting involved in, and I want to know about it.

3. Matilda from Matilda by Roald Dahl

What happens after Matilda moves in with Miss Honey? Super-geniuses don't just fade into thin air.

4. Wade and Art3mis from Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

What happens after Wade wins the game? What happens to him and Art3mis? What happens to their world?

5. Lyra and Will from the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman

I just really, really want there to be a way that Lyra and Will can somehow meet again.

6. Lee Fiora from Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

Who is the adult that we see glimpses of in the way the story is told? Does she really become a better person?

7. Emily from the Emily books by L.M. Montgomery

Life doesn't end with marriage! What do Emily and Teddy do next?

8. Jane from Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery

Most of Montgomery's heroines have so much written about them, and there's only one book for Jane. I bet there was much more for her to see and do...

9. Dan from Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott

Even though the curtain closes forever on the March family, I think there's more that could happen to Dan. I wish he could get together with Bess too, though I know Alcott would never have let that happen.

10. Samwise Gamgee from the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Sam is the only one of the gang whose story is really unresolved, and he's got plenty of kids, especially eldest daughter Elanor, to carry on the adventures.

You have some good picks. I totally agree with the HP characters and Samwise. What are they up to?

I can't believe that I didn't include Matilda in my list. I'd love to know how she's getting on with Miss Honey! I'd love to know how Luna is getting on too. My TTT
