Hello beautiful! I’ve got a few new posts in store for the next few weeks, but in the meantime, the lovely Alicia at A Colorful Bibliophile has nominated me for the Outstanding Blogger Award! Thank you so much Alicia 🙂 You can find her post here.
Here are the rules:
- Provide the link to the creator’s original award post. (very important: see why in step 5)
- Answer the questions provided.
- Create 7 unique questions.
- Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator, nor the blogger that nominated you, can be nominated.
- At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!
Now for Alicia’s questions.
1- Good news! You can now communicate with animals, aside from your pets what animal are you talking to first?
I’d love to talk to a Galapagos giant tortoise. They can live for over a century; just think of all they could have seen! Also, an elephant would be cool. Or something in the ocean, like a whale or a jellyfish.
2- You can make any ONE fictional character (books, movies, video game, etc) come to life, who are you choosing?
This is a tough one. I’ve always been a sucker for a good Peter Pan story, so maybe Peter or Tink, even Hook. Then again, if I’m looking for a friend, maybe Meggie from Inkheart, or Inej from Six of Crows, or Nancy Drew, or Elizabeth Bennet. I think I’ll go with Peter, with Nancy Drew as a followup. Both would be so fun. Peter is the obvious choice if magic comes to life too, but if it doesn’t, I’d have to pick Nancy, because Peter would be devastated without magic.
3- If you were a God/ Goddess what would you be Patron of?
I would be Patron of the Curious. All things strange, all those wanting to know more about those around them, I would bless and guide. It would be an interesting life full of adventure, to be sure.
4- What 3 songs would you use in a soundtrack to your life?
This one’s insanely difficult, because I have no idea what genre my life fits into. I’ll just pick a favorite song from each of my three favorite pop bands and go with that.
Forest by Twenty Øne Piløts (runner-up: Truce)
No Control by One Direction
Wow, I’m Not Crazy by AJR
Again, these are just me choosing from the most popular bands I’m a fan of, and it was still crazy difficult, so answering the original question would be almost impossible for me. At the moment these songs pretty much are my life’s soundtrack anyway.
5- A new species of animal has been discovered, what does it look like and what is it called?
It’s a Neurial, a bioluminescent, transparent animal that lives in the middle of the ocean. They are incredibly ancient and have fins so long and draped they appear to be made almost of gauze or sheer fabric, and their hair is soft and downy as a dandelion. Neurials protect ancient civilizations that fell prey to the ocean, drifting among the drowned cities and scaring away predators with their blue and gold glow.
6- You’ve found an enchanted doorway that can take you anywhere. Where are you going?
This will come as no surprise to my consistent readers.
Neverland, of course!
7- Space Travel is now available to everyone & the first Space Rollercoaster has been invented. Would you ride it?
Yes ma’am! I love rollercoasters, and if I can convince myself to get on, I would love it!
Here are my seven questions:
1- How would you describe your aesthetic?
2- What book character do you consider yourself most like?
3- What book character do you wish you were?
4- You stumble across a carving in the wall of a cave. It tells a myth about the moon and stars. How does the story go?
5- If you could control one element, which element would it be? What ordinary things would you use it for? (Example: If you chose water, you could say washing the dishes goes very quickly.)
6- What genre of movie or book would you want your life’s story to be in? What genre do you think it’s actually in?
7- What is your exact favorite color at this moment? Where can it be found in nature?
Thank you so much for nominating me, Alicia! Here are my nominees:
The Wanderings of a Bookish Vagabond
Aleks and the Books
Obsidian Owl Library
I hope you all have time to do this post and that my questions aren’t too difficult.
What do you think of my questions? How would you answer?
Have an adventurous day!
