So this tag was created by Nathan Hale on Youtube, and I suggest that you watch his original video of the tag first to get a better understanding of the tag. I wasn't tagged, but I like doing book tags since they are so fun.
Click here to watch the original video by Nathan Hale.
How this tag works:
Imagine that there is a zombie apocalypse and zombies are everywhere eating people's brains and destroying the human race. You need to form a kick ass group to get rid of these zombies, and to form the group, you have to choose five books that you really like and choose two characters from each book. You write down the titles of the five books on strips of paper and put them in a small box or anything, and you fish out the titles of the books at random. Then, flip to a random page and the first name of a character you see will play a role in your team, so that means that you have to flip to two random pages of each book to get two characters. It has to be a name. The sequence of which character gets which position is based on which book you get first and which character's name you see first.
This tag would be more fun in a video, but I thought that I'd just do this. If you don't understand, you'll catch on. You'll probably catch on. I hope you do. :)
1. The first person to die
2. The person you trip to get away from the zombies
3. The first person to turn into a zombie
4. The person that trips YOU to get away from the zombies
5. The idiot of the team
6. The "brains" of the team
7. The team's medic
8. The weapons expert
9. The brawler
10. The Team Captain
Let's do this!
Well let's see here. Having to pick five favorite books was hard. How do you even pick five?
I've finally narrowed it down to five. I've got:
- Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
- Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
- Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter
- Looking for Alaska by John Green
(NOTE: If you haven't read books in this list before, I suggest that you should go and read them first, because there will be spoilers.)
SO LET'S START!
Okay, I'm shaking my box.. And the first (book?) tribute for the Zombie Apocalypse tag is...
(That was awkward.)
Looking for Alaska by John Green!
I don't know what to say about this. I don't think there are a lot of characters that we know by name in this book, but we'll see.
Okay, I saw Auden. Don't think that's even a character in the book, I'll try again.
Pudge! As the first person to die.
If I had Alaska as the first person to die, that would be ..ironic, because of what happened in the book. But Pudge is the first person to die in my badass team. That is kinda sad, although I wonder what would be his last words. Something about joining Alaska, probably...
Now I have to trip someone to get away from the zombies, and he is...
The Colonel. I tripped the Colonel to get away from the zombies.
Is that possible? Isn't the Colonel smart? He'll probably figure out that I'm going to trip him, but since I did trip him..he'll be so mad.
The next book is..
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan!
And the first person to turn into a zombie is...
Well, I wasn't that attached to Jason in the Heroes of Olympus series except for the fact that he is sweet to Piper, so.. Goodbye, Jason! Don't eat our brains!
Now for the idiot that trips ME to get away from the zombies...
Oh my gods, this whole tag is turning out to be so funny. What, doesn't Piper want Jason anymore now that he is a zombie? She could trip me for letting Jason turn into a zombie... but I think she's too nice for that.
And the next book is Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter
Now we find out who is the idiot of the team..
What the heck? Cammie?
No. NO. Cammie is no idiot. There will be no further discussion on this.
Now for the brains of the team, and it is...
Nothing makes sense anymore! Cammie should've been the brains of the team and Preston the idiot. I didn't like Preston that much in the series, I mean, I didn't hate him a lot, but I didn't exactly like him either, because he kind of made Zach jealous, I think. He did help Cammie though. But now that I think of it, Preston is the son of Governor Winters, so he should be smart, and even though I don't really like him, he could be the brains of the team.
Only two books left, which one shall it be next?
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare!
Being the team's medic and the weapons expert are both good positions for the characters in Clockwork Princess - there's nothing bad about being a medic or a weapons expert! This is interesting! Shadowhunters are all weapon experts!
And the team's medic is Charlotte Branwell!
That fits perfectly! She is so motherly and kind, and I think she would be a very good medic! She would take really good care of anyone, and she would make sure that you feel well again, and that everything is fine. I am so glad to have her on my team!
Next, the weapons expert is...
Will was in the same sentence as Jessamine, and why couldn't I have seen Will first?!
So I guess now my team's weapons expert is Jessamine... But isn't she a ghost now? I'll probably have to count her as alive anyway, because she was still alive in the beginning of Clockwork Princess. With her as my team's weapons expert, my team would probably be doomed 'cause doesn't Jessamine hate being a Shadowhunter and all things related to the Shadowhunter world? However afterwards she came back as a ghost to protect the London Institute, so I guess she does feel something for Shadowhunters after all. She didn't really train though...
The last book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling!
This better be good...
And for the brawler of the team, we have..
Ron is so not the brawler. I mean,I love him. He can be very brave at times but - he isn't a brawler! That's just not his thing.
Lastly, the Team Captain is...
Why?? Why do I keep getting characters that are completely unfit for the positions?!
But maybe she could come up with great plans for the team if.. she changes for the better... I don't know.
So this is my team:
1. The first person to die: Pudge
2. The person you trip to get away from the zombies: The Colonel
3. The first person to turn into a zombie: Jason
4. The person that trips YOU to get away from the zombies: Piper
5. The idiot of the team: Cammie
6. The "brains" of the team: Preston Winters
7. The team's medic: Charlotte Branwell
8. The weapons expert: Jessamine Lovelace
9. The brawler: Ron Weasley
10. The Team Captain: Dolores Umbridge
Will my team last? Probably won't. Anyone that could be helpful would be gone anyway, like Jason. Piper could use her charmspeak to bring Jason back as a human again, if that's even possible.
And this is the Zombie Apocalypse tag by Nathan Hale, go check out his videos!
Well, this was fun. Sort of. This book tag could've gone a lot better, if I had gotten characters that are more suitable for the positions. I'm sorry if you got bored. Thank you for reading, I'll be doing more book tags soon and I hope that you enjoyed this one!
Happy reading! :)
