Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) – With Hermione comes magic (and hopefully one of those awesome bigger-on-the-inside tents) which would make getting off the island easy, so we’d probably turn it in to a vacation instead and talk about the history of magic for a week straight!

Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) – Whether we got off the island or not I know I’d be fine if I was there with Katniss, girl’s a survivor.

Daenerys Targaryen (A Game of Thrones) – Dany is pretty awesome, and also pretty good at coming out on top even when the odds are stacked against her – plus, if we’re talking most of GoT then you know Drogo would have his entire khalasar out looking for her, so we could just soak up the sunshine while we waited to be rescued.

Veralidaine “Daine” Sarrasri (Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books) – Daine could use her wild magic to ask the whales (not the dolphins!) to help us get off the island, and that would definitely be an adventure.

Isabelle Lightwood (The Mortal Instruments series) – She’s a tough one, and I want to be her BFF, so I think we’d have fun figuring out how exactly we were going to get off the island (and we would look awesome while doing it).

John Carter (John Carter of Mars/Barsoom series) – The man survived Mars, I think he can handle a deserted island, (and I wouldn’t mind sticking around for a while to enjoy the company of this particular southern gentleman).

Lord John Roxton (The Lost World) – If anyone was going to help be escape a deserted island while also turning it in to the adventure of a lifetime it would be this man, and knowing him he’s probably even been to this island before.

Aragorn (The Lord of the Rings) – We’d manage just fine on the island, and being stranded there probably wouldn’t even register as a concern for him (he’s been through worse); we probably wouldn’t be there very long (Isildur’s heir has responsibilities) but hopefully he’d tell me about all of the journeys he’s been on while we were.

Gansey (The Raven Boys) – Gansey would be great company on a deserted island, we’d probably end up spending all of our time talking instead of figuring out how to actually get off the island though.

Numair Salmalin (Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books) – He’s got plenty of magic to either get us off the island or raise a castle from the ground so we can stay there, and I’d be happy with either as long as he was around.

This one was a lot harder than I expected it to be!  I decided to go the “Who can help me survive/escape from the island?” route for most of them but I could definitely make another list of characters I’d just like to be stranded with, if you know what I mean? 😉
