Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it's a way to share what you're loving in list form.  The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!

This week's theme is:  Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island.  While it's pretty certain this would never happen, it's always nice to know what type of people you would surround yourself with in such a situation.

Here's my list in no particular order :)

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games Trilogy
  • She'd be my go-to-girl for providing fresh food and for having a quick reaction time when needed.  Plus, she's tough as nails and I wouldn't really have to worry about her too much.  She can fend for herself.
Ron Weasley from The Harry Potter Series
  • Purely for entertainment purposes.  He's funny, charming, and would be a pleasure to be around.  Plus, he has magical capabilities, so he could save you/fix things in a pinch.
John Thornton from North and South
  • Eye-candy.  Pure and simple.  But he also has a great work ethic and cares about those less fortunate than him despite the front he may put on. 
Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief
  • Liesel and I would discuss our love of books together.  She's a brilliant character.
Arya Stark from A Song of Fire and Ice Series
  • Arya is a badass.  She's feisty, loyal, and survival is her MO.  As an adaptable character, she would thrive in a survival situation like this one being presented.
Alexia Tarabotti (Lady Maccon) from The Parasol Protectorate Series
  • I think her "magical" parasol would come in handy in a scuffle.  Plus, she's highly inquisitive and logical.  Her thought process would be a notable asset in any situation...though she does have a penchant for getting herself into sticky situations.
Joe Morelli from The Stephanie Plum Series
  • Some more eye-candy, but he's pretty bad ass.  A cop in Trenton, NJ with a sharp wit and take-no-prisoners attitude.  He'd keep order and mediate disputes between the other castaways.
Six from The Lorien Legacy Series
  • She's a bad-ass alien from the planet of Lorien.  She has super-speed and is very smart in a battle atmosphere.  Plus, she's incredibly independent.
Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  • Sam would always have your back and be incredibly supportive in your decision while making sure that decisions are made that are in the best interest of the group.
Cyril from The 44 Scotland Street Series
  • Everyone needs a pet, and Cyril is the perfect one to choose.  Not only does he have a gold tooth and regularly drink beer, but he has an intelligent sparkle in his little doggy eye's that is so endearing.
And there you have it...the ten characters I wouldn't mind being stranded on a deserted island with.  I was trying to think of someone who could build a solid shelter, but then I remember that Ron could just whip us up a magical cottage to abide in :)  Who would you choose?
