Over at the Book Chewers, we do weekly link-up, and Cait is hosting! Literally, actually, because, in this case, it’s a dinner party. That’s right. A literary dinner party. And I get to invite the guests.
1. What are we eating?
Bruce Bogtrotter’s cake–delicious, and well decorated (see the cook.) It’s also being washed down with frobscottle, generously supplied by the BFG. (The BFG and Matilda.)
2. Who’s cooking?
Peeta Mellark… I won’t lie. It’s a bit of a high-carb meal. (The Hunger Games.)
3. Who’s funding this dinner party?!
Macey McHenry, from Gallagher Academy. I mean, she’s daughter of a senator, so I’m pretty sure she’s got the cash to pay for some pretty snazzy food. You know. Real cream and real butter.
4. Invite a villain. (Be careful.)
Hades. Come on. You got to admit that he’ll have some interesting conversations. His companions will be a captive audience. Probably literally. (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif.)
5. Who’s likely to make a scene if the food is late?
Gilly Hopkins. Never was one so inclined to voicing exactly what they think. (The Great Gilly Hopkins.)
6. Party feels a bit tense. Who’s the comedic relief?
Geoffrey Fisher from A Murder for Her Majesty. He’s standing on the table teaching the guests the highland fling.
7. Someone’s monopolising the conversation. Who’s the hero at this dinner party?
Shahrazad. She’s telling an epic tale, and all the guests are enthralled. In fact, it’s going to take a lot to get them to leave now and never come back, if you know what I’m saying. But seriously, it’s a great story. (Shadow Spinner.)
8. Who wishes they weren’t there?
Katniss… at least she doesn’t wish she wasn’t there. She wishes Shahrazad and coversation in general wasn’t there. They’re only disctractions to the food. (The Hunger Games.)
9. Who’s the couple more interested in each other’s gorgeous eyes then the food?
Buttercup and Wesley. Oh, please. Someone give me the iocane powder, I think I’m going to puke. (The Princess Bride.)
10. Aw, someone’s pet is eating food off the guests’ plates. What’s the creature and who’s the owner?
Four Eaton (he’s a creature only there for the chocolate cake.) He’s also Tris’ pet. (Divergent.)
So! Are we going to have a party or what?! And I’d love to see which guests you’d come up with…so link up over at TBC (just click over and follow the steps on the post.)
