Love this list. Also, being the Seeker would be even cooler if it were the book version. Although, I would rather be a Confessor or a Mord Sith myself :P
Posted: 7 years, 10 months ago at Oct 5 2:40
I agree, Percy Jackson didn't live up to expectations. Doesn't stop me from loving the demi-god idea though! And of course I'm thinking about the book seeker! Confessor wouldn't really appeal to me...a life without sex because you were afraid to turn your partner into a mindless slave? No thanks. Looks like someone's got a craving for the dark side though. :)
