TTT: Characters at My Lunch Table

This week's TTT topic: Characters That Would Be Sitting at My Lunch Table

What a fun topic! This is of course making us all the same age despite what age the characters are in their books. I'm thinking 16-17 because we would be able to drive to hang outs and all the crazy things our group would be up to after school.

Gen and Irene for the Queen's Thief Series by Megan Whalen Turner

Lord Peter and Harriet from Strong Poison, To Have his Carcase, Gaudy Night, and Busman's Honeymoon by Dorothy Sayers

Howl and Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Kate and Christopher from The Perilous Gard

In addition to these fine people and myself we will add my husband. And with that this would be the table with the smartest yet laziest students (the boys), contrasted with the smartest and everyone knows it students (the girls). There would be a whole lot of eye rolling, flirting disguised as snarky flippant conversation, and quite a few political debates. There would also be a whole lot of trouble.

Who would you have at your lunch table.

Lol, I totally chose Sophos (and would take Edis over Irene too--love her!). I admire Gen and Irene, but don't see myself hanging out with them. Total YES at Howl and Sophie though, didn't even think of them! Howl would drive me nuts though. :P

Gen and Irene plus Howl and Sophie are great picks! I love how you chose couples for this. Haha and what you said about the boys being the smartest but laziest. So true.

Oh goodness. With a table like that, the odds of your entire table (minus maybe Hermoine) ending up in detention every day just shot up.

I love Sophos and Eddis too, but not more than Gen and Irene. I think everyone at this table would drive each other crazy, but it would be a fun kind of crazy.

I wanted the table balanced in all things. :)

I have a feeling it would be more of other people getting detention because of how sneaky 75% of these people are.

Ron and Hermione are both great choices!
