Answer:

One of my favourite books is the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The Sherlock Holmes series is one of the most beloved mystery series in the world. I am a big fan of both Holmes and Watson.

An Evil Villains Backstory

Umbridge:

 

“What have I told you?” my mother screeched. Eyes bulging, lip quivering. She was really mad.

“I must not tell lies,” I muttered, trying to avoid her eyes.

“That’s right Dolores, YOU MUST NOT TELL LIES!” Huffing and puffing, my mother tried to catch her breath. “Now, tell me Dolores,” Her voice eerily calm, “why is there a filthy half breed in our yard?”

Taking a deep breath, I glance out the window. “He was hurt mamma. I was only trying to help.”

“Let it suffer!” My mom exploded, “They all deserve to die!” With that she stormed out of the room muttering to herself about ‘filthy half breeds’.

~              ~              ~              ~            ~              ~             ~             ~            ~             ~             ~

It was soon after, sitting in our dreary little kitchen, staring out the window at the crippled centaur baby, that I decided to kill it. Killing it would make mamma very happy. And to finally have her acceptance? That was worth much more than any half breed child.

With this thought stuck in my head, forming an evil seed, I headed out the kitchen door with a knife in my hand.

Literary Olympics

Team Hogwarts

 

Team Hogwarts would definatley excel at the Olympics because they are none other than the heroes of the wizarding world. With a wide fan base, and access to the world’s top trainers, Team Hogwarts would have the most support, confidence, and knowledge. Each individual member of Team Hogwarts also has specialized skills that would come in handy during the Olympics. Harry’s speed, agility, and bravery would help in sports such as track and field, swimming, and, of course, Quidditch. Ron’s hand-eye coordination, loyalty, and belief in himself would help him be a great goalie in team sports such as soccer and water polo. Hermione’s quick wit, knowledge, and ability to quickly understand and address a situation would make her good at sports based mostly on precession, like archery, volleyball, and basketball. Team Hogwarts has already fought together as a team and won. So it seems more than likely that they can do it again. And if they’re ever in serious need of help, they can always pull out there wands and work their magic-literally!

#2: It's the end of the world as we know it!

Do you like dystopia? Why or why not?

Absolutely! After reading The Hunger Games trilogy, I've noticed that I became much more interested in the dystopian genere. In fact, I didn't even know it existed before the genere became so popular. Every dystopian novels illlustrate a different possible outcome for the Earth's society. 


Of all of the dystopic books you have read, which ‘end of the world’ scenario do you think is the most realistic?

Susan Beth Pfeffer's Life As We Knew It seemed very realistic to me. In the trilogy, Miranda faces everyday life until natural disasters start destroying Earth. It wasn't caused by technology, or any other man-made creation, and there was nothing people could do to stop it. I think that aspect of the novels seemed to hit so close to home, the fact that the main characters were so normal, but this one accident changed their lives forever. But even in that situation, Miranda's family held together throughout numerous hardships. Reading the book in her perspective allowed me to feel what she felt, see what she saw. I felt like she was so similar to I was, so realistic, but the difference was that she lived in a dystopian future, one that could so easily become my own. Even after finishing the trilogy, I felt a connection to Miranda and the realism of the plot line. It left me wondering "What would I do if that happened tomorrow?'

 

Why do you think that people are obsessed with the end of the world?

People are so obsessed with it because they want to know what will happen to them. It could so easily become their future. They want to know when their going to die, and make the most out of their lives before that happens.

 

What is your favourite dystopia novel?

This was really difficult to choose, but I would say Nancy Farmer's House of the Scorpion. It is set somewhere in the near future, where clones are treated like animals. The main character Matteo Alcrán is a clone of an 146 year old drug lord, nicknamed El Patrón. He gives Matt anything he wishes, giving him a false sense of security. But as Matt stays their longer he uncovers his true purpose as a clone...

This novel brings a haunting future to drug wars and technology, which I really admire about the book. I could easily relate to Matt's struggle to survive as an individual in society. His hardships seemed extremely hard to overcome, but Matt's determination to become equal rises above it. How he never gave up hope, even in deadly situations, prompted me to choose this book as my favorite dystopian novel.
