Top Ten Characters I'd Switch Places With

  

 Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.

This week is Top Ten characters I'd like to switch places with.    

Someone from the Shire? I'd say Bilbo but he gets all weirded out from the Ring- but I'd love to be a Shire person?

Jon Snow. Because, you know... Ygritte.

Luke Skywalker. Yes- dude gets to be a Jedi, regardless of what The Last Jedi says about all that anti- Jedi stuff.  



Someone from the Wayfarer crew. Not sure who, but would love to join! 

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1)

Bellamy from The 100.

Ant-Man I mean seriously I never woulda thought of this but after seeing the movies- do you know how much fun that would be?

Gildor Inglorion or one of those itinerant elves in the Wandering Companies. I mean they wander all over the Shire, hang at Rivendell and get to sail into the West.

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1)

  1. Oh my god, I can't believe I forgot anyone from The Shire! Quicksilver is another excellent choice. I really like Evan Peters' portrayal of him.

  2. LOL I finally watched Ant-Man a couple weekends ago and it was hilarious. Yes, how fun would his powers be? Though to be honest, switching places with any big name Marvel or DC superhero character would be pretty awesome, just to have powers.

    1. I've only recently seen the latest one and it cracked me up. I never imagined such an ingenious use of powers!

  3. OHMYGOSH!! Ant-Man = SO MUCH YES. Or at least a character in his circle of allies. Those movies (the world) are WAY too much fun to not want to be a tiny part of. :)

    1. I initially had a really hard time with this one as well.

  6. I think (apart from all the horrible stuff that happens) hobbits have a pretty sweet life! Maybe a Hobbit back in Bilbo's grandparents days? I wouldn't mind living at Rivendell either actually.
    My TTT this week.

    1. Either of those would be fine for me! And yes back a few generations- that's be awesome!

  7. OOh nice picks!! I think being any superhero would be a lot of fun!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. You totally thought of some great ones! Ant Man And Mystique would be awesome!

    1. Some nice picks here. Yes, the Shire would be a peaceful place to live if you were there before - or well after - the Scouring of the Shire. I’d live in Rivendell if they let me work in the library. Dol Amroth would be nice too, it’s by the sea and you don’t have to put up with that parade of Elves sailing off into the West!

      I’d be happy to do the Jedi thing, just not have my own Dad cut my hand off!

      Delete
    2. Ant-Man and Mystique might have two of the more interesting powers on this list- both would be awesome. And Sue- yes Dol Amroth would be amazing. I'd love the view of the sea from there, and it's always fascinated me.

  9. Shapeshifting is cool, but it's all that other stuff that comes with it, that makes me nervous to switch. I think I could live in the Shire though.

    1. I could too. and what would you actually DO with shapeshifting?

      Delete
  10. Luke Skywalker is a great choice.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  11. Great list! If I had to choose a completely fantastical place to live in, I'm pretty sure I would choose the Shire. It looks so darn nice there!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah the Shire I think is high on a lot of lists!

      Delete
  12. I'd love to be a Shire person, too. They had simple lives, but they also seemed to have pretty pleasant ones. And who wouldn't want to eat and drink delicious things every day in the company of loved ones? :)

    1. Exactly! I could get used to the Shire.

      Delete
  13. I love Ant-Man. That's an awesome choice. I chose Khaleesi from GoT. Had to - I feel the need to command dragons. And maybe they would listen to me better that Booker T - Mr. Barb is always calling me "Mother of Boxers."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ooh Khaleesi! Can't go wrong w/ dragons. "Mother of Boxers" oh my gosh that's awesome. :)

      And Ant-Man rocks.

      Delete
  14. The whole crew of the Wayfarer is really pretty great, I get wanting to meet them all!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I didn't do TTT this week but I would have definitely put a character from The Hobbit or LOTR. Maybe Legolas? Ant-Man would be fun wouldn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Haha! I love your answers, Greg, and I think Antman is my fav! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Long as it comes with the skills, too, so you don't wind up dead. lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm 100% with you on being AntMan, or, in my case, Wasp. It would be so much fun! Dangerous, but fun. Great post, Greg.

    1. Dangerous but fun- I totally agree! Ant-Man or Wasp would be awesome!

      Delete
  19. I agree with Ant-Man. It would be interesting to be tiny.

    ReplyDelete
  20. haha I didn't know yiu had a bookish crush on Ygritte! :) I would love to be like mystique too :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Some epic characters there for sure! I would totally be Mystique.

    ReplyDelete
  22. To be a Jedi would be the best switch of all! :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think Shire is on almost everyone's TTT this week))

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm totally down to be someone from the Shire as well, I think it sounds like the best place. Being a shapeshifter or an else that gets to explore all over the place would also be awesome. These are good picks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mystique! Oh yes, I agree with that -- her ability is one of the best in the movies!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yaas, Quicksilver! I would love to just be able to speed around.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I’d love to see the Shire! I’m pretty much a hobbit anyway. :)

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Some of these would be fun. It would be great to spend a day as Luke Skywalker. He can do all kinds of neat things and he gets to hang out with Yoda.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love your list, especially the Shire person, Jon Snow, and Luke Skywalker!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The minor characters seem to have it better than most of the protagonists do. Good choices.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeah, Bilbo was on my list. I just want to be nosey and check out is hobbit hole. And Mystique - I thought of including her on my list and then forgot. Doh.
    Lynn :D

  32. Granted I've ever read the books and have only seen the show, but I was never a fan of Ygritte. Love Jon Snow but never warmed to Ygritte (no pun intended LOL). Luke Skywalker is a good one!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bellamy is OBVIOUSLY a solid choice. I would be Clarke because again, of course! I thought about doing this but the only characters I'd pick are like, Clarke or Katniss, so 😂

    The Wayfarer crew would be fun- though technically couldn't you just be YOU but on the ship? You could still hang out with those guys then. And I'd not turn down the shapeshifting either, I concur!

    ReplyDelete
  34. "Someone from the Shire" is actually a brilliant choice because that way you get to be there, but without all the danger that most characters face. I haven't seen Ant-Man, but it would be fun sometimes to be able to shrink down! And shapeshifting like Mystique would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh I want to be on the Wayfarer crew too! And living in the Shire seems so relaxing haha.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like the idea of living in the Shire or Rivendell and just enjoying the quiet and the landscapes!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I so would love to live and be a hobbit and live in the shire how amazing would that be? =)
    I don't think being Luke would be bad either - except for the whole hand thing.

  38. Great post and great picks of characters I haven't read a Tolkien book yet but I do have the whole LOTR trilogy but I am waiting too get the Hobbit book so I can start to read LOTR books. Thank you so much for stopping by my TTT post last week.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I definitely agree with Mystique and also Quicksilver. They have great powers! I would love to live in the Shire too so I agree with that switch :D
