Today’s TTT is the Top Ten Characters You’d Like To Check In With (meaning, the book or series is over and you so just wish you could peek in on the “life” you imagine they are leading years down the line after the story ends).
Well, any of the Harry Potter gang would easily have made the list in the past, but through Pottermore, we do get pretty regular updates, so I’ve decided not to include them this time around.
Richard and Door from Neverwhere
Even though he decided to make London Below his home, he’s definitely still a bit of a fish out of water when we leave him, it’s be great to see how he’s settled in.
Nobody Owens from The Graveyard Book
I love the book, but I do find the ending a bit melancholy, leaving his friends and family behind, I’d love to see how he’s doing a year or so after we leave him.
Will (& Lyra) from His Dark Materials.
We’ve seen a little about Lyra since the final book in the trilogy, but I’d love to see how Will is getting on.
Todd and Viola from Chaos Walking
Okay, we got to see a little more in the short stories which accompanied the most recent paperback editions.
Matt & Kate from The Airborn Trilogy
I can’t imagine that they slipped into a quiet life somehow… Be fun to see what trouble they’ve got into in the years since we last saw them!
Johan and the team from Thieves Like Us
It’s a long time since I last checked in with these guys, I wonder what they are up to?
Ty and Gemma from Dark Life and Rip Tide
Ty & Gemma were some of my favourite characters in the years I read the books, I’d love to meet up with them again!
Deryn & Alek from the Leviathan series
Who wouldn’t want more airship adventures?
Dylan from The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine
I remember Dylan and his family and friends being a lot of fun to meet at the time and as we left them, they were just about sorting their lives out, it’d be nice to see how they are doing!
T.C. Alé and Augie from My Most Excellent Year
My Most Excellent Year has one of my favourite cast of characters, I’d love to meet up with them again and see how they are doing!
Who would you most like to check in with again?
