Top Ten Tuesday: Checking in with fairy tale characters

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, which I participate in sporadically. Bonnie and I wanted to pull in the TTT topics during FTF, but because Fairy Tale Fortnight is turning 5 this year, we decided to give the topics a nostalgic FTF spin, and take a look back at some things, as well as a look forward. This week's topic is "Top Ten Characters You'd Like To Check In With," and while Bonnie took a look at general fairy tale characters that she wanted to be able to check in on after their tales ended, I want to see what's going on with 10* of my favorite characters from the adaptations I've read over the last 5 years of FTF.
And though my first instinct was to say I want to know how things turn out for Sorcha & Red... I then remembered that I do know how things turn out for them...and then I was sad. =/

*totally more than 10...

So in no particular order, I have to say, I'm really curious about...

Reveka & Frumos. Alright, I lied when I said "no particular order," because I am definitely most curious about the fates of Reveka and Frumos from Merrie Haskell's The Princess Curse, whcih I adore beyond measure, and will never stop holding out hope that a sequel (most advanced in years than the original middle-grade tale) will come into being, and thus into my greedy little hands. I neeeeeeed it! *grabby hands*

The Lass & her Bear. I've said for ages that this is one of my favorite retellings, and I just connected so much to the nameless Lass and her ice-bear-beast. I don't doubt their happy future, honestly --  I just want to check in and see them being happy, in their own little icy Norman Rockwell-painting version of Norway...

Ash & Kaisa & Sidhean. I had my issues with this story, but the fact remains that these characters were memorable, and I wanted more of them. I'd be really curious to peek into their lives.

The entire cast of The Lunar Chronicles, but somehow, Cress & Carswell Thorne most of all. (And I didn't see that coming. I mean, Cinder & Kai all the way, but I don't doubt they'll find their ways back to each other. But there's something so sweet about Cress and whatever is developing with her and Thorne, and I want more! Gimme Winter, dammit!

And again, the entire cast of a series, in this case, Castle Waiting -- every last inhabitant of the castle (right down to the little guy that says "Yaz'm"). I REALLY need there to be more of this series. I've read it all more than once, and I'm debating another go-round with it. My withdrawals are that bad.

Cécile & Tristan. Hidden Huntress can't come soon enough.

Keturah & her lord, Death. I'm not sure how rosy an ever-after in the afterlife can really be, but I picture these two about as content as you can get.

Suzume. I really need to know what's going on with Suzume. Her life was...beyond hard, and it's going to be a long road out of that pain. I want to just observe her for a bit, and wish her peace (and I want to see more of her story -- I want to see what becomes of her!)

I also really have been meaning to check in with the characters of Wildwood Dancing and The Goose Girl, which I really should have done. Guess it's time to finally pull Cybele's Secret and Enna Burning down off my shelves, eh?

  1. *adds more books to her growing TBR list....*
    I was actually really happy, reading Cybele's Secret, that we got a glimpse into the other sister's lives. It was like getting a letter from an old acquaintance. :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
