Bout of Books Challenge: Scientific Discovery

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

The first challenge in this Bout of Books is brought to you by The Book Barbies.  

You have made a scientific discovery (who knew you were so good at science?!) on how to bring fictional characters to life. The problem? The method still isn't *perfect,* so you can only bring two people to life, and they must return to the land of fiction in 30 days. Who will you choose as your bestie and your love interest for that one splendid month? (Feel free to add pictures if you like, but they are not required.)
For best friend, this was a difficult choice.  I saw one blog today that chose Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice which I think is the best answer ever, but I don't want to steal it, so I think I'll say Jilly Coppercorn from many of the Charles de Lint books.  Now if you don't know Jilly, you should.  She is a wonderful person who went through a horrific childhood to turn her life around to help others.  She is an artist and has been known to access the Otherworld.  We could work on artsy projects and talk about her experiences with the Fey and magic.  

For love interest.  Sirius Black, especially if he takes the form of Gary Oldman.  I love his character because he is damaged and tortured and honorable and loyal.  For that month we could go on long walks in the moonlight and he could teach me some magic.   If I was a teenager it would be Cas from Anna Dressed in Blood because he is dreamy and cool and clever.  We would probably do some ghost hunting.  

How about you?  Who did you conjure up?

Sirius Black as a love interest? Great choice! Especially if he looks like Gary Oldman! :)

I'm not familiar with your book bestie, but she sounds good- and I agree, Lizzie would make the best book bestie ever! Also, although I'm more of a Remus girl, Sirius is a hottie, as is Cas. You know, he's 18 now, right? Totally legal.

@Alexia-Thanks! And yeah, I agree. Brilliant casting.

@Kate-Remus...okay, I can see that.

Very nice answers! I haven't read any Charles de Lint yet, but I have a book or two on my TBR list! And I own Anna but haven't gotten to it yet. And Sirius Black is my absolute FAVORITE character from the Harry Potter books. Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite book, mostly because of Sirius and the whole time-travel thing. And Gary Oldman was the perfect Sirius. :D

What great answers. Lizzie would be the bestest of best friends :)

I don't know who I would bring back. That is a very tough question. Though I am with the person who answered Remus, he was my HP Hottie (

@Andrea-I hope you get to come CDL this year. I have a hard time finding fans of his.

@Felicia-I would love to get to know Lizzie.
