Character Connection: Fang

The lovely Jen @ The Introverted Reader has started a new meme. Today is the first day and so I would like to wish her lots of luck in her new venture and just say that I think it is genius.

This is probably not the best it could be but the wonderful thing about this meme is it is about love of a character and using that to create a post.

Creativity. I love it.

So here I am writing a blog post to Fang without spoilers because you would all hate me to reveal that ending in the most recent book which made me cry.

Author: James Patterson
Series: Maximum Ride
Book: Fang

Dear Fang,

I am a huge fan, like the absoulte biggest. I totally wish I could grow a pair or wings and fly with you and the flock. I'm still waiting for my mutant gene to kick in. I wonder what it will be...maybe I'll be able to leap fifty feet in the air. Maybe I'll be able to do the whole mind trick like what Angel's got going on. Maybe I'll have x-ray vision. That would be cool...I wonder what colour...never mind.

I think you and Max are like a dream couple. You're all silent and smouldering and she's all kick-ass leader material. A great combo! I seriously wanted to give Dylan reconstructive surgery when he showed up. No one likes Mr Perfection. I mean who would want to be with a guy with rippling muscles, glossy blond hair, a gorgeous smile? 

So anyway Fang, I am totally crushing on you but of course I want you to be with Max. I mean I have a husband who is totally the best at cooking meatballs anyway.

Mutant bird boy, why are you reading this post? You should totally be out saving the world from evil scientists and natural disasters and stuff.

You know what would be cool is if you did a contest on your blog to win one of your feathers. I would love to own one of your feathers. Think about it. Please?

Stay safe and watch out for tho dopplegangers!

Love, the biggest mutant bird kid wannabee

Oh, this is lovely! I haven't read any of these books, but suddenly I want to. :)

I loved this post! I hope you had fun writing it!

I haven't read any of these books, but you've definitely got me wanting to check out this Fang. Just the word smoldering is enough to have me going, "Ooh, where? I wanna see!"

I'm afraid this meme is going to be very hard on my tbr list!

Thanks for joining in!

Love it!!!!!! You know I read the first this book in this series a looooooong time ago. I honestly think at that time it was marketed as a YA book in any way. I remember being very suprised when I saw a sequel and even more suprised when I saw it was for teens. I haven't gone on to read anymore. Sometimes I think I should because the I liked the characters. hmmmmmmmm, I guess I'll have to think about it!

I love this.

Lovely letter, the whole idea of writing one to a character is wonderful and I'm really glad you shared it. Like some of the other commenters, it left me with this HUGE grin on my face.

So fun and cute :)
