Always the Robin, Never the Bat (Or, RTW: Sidekick Stardom)



1 comments
Over at YA Highway, there is a weekly meme running called Road Trip Wednesday, where a writing-or-book-related question is asked of both the road trippers and audience, the answers to which are linked in the comments.

This week, RTW asks us which secondary character from a YA novel we would like to see star in a story of their very own. You know the character, sometimes set up in a fashion reflecting the author's lack of concern at whether the reader likes or dislikes them. Often the comic relief, or the bait. Or even someone that you really weren't meant to get attached to, a plot device or background noise. So, my answer?

I could talk to you about the story potential in THE HUNGER GAMES' Finnick Odair, or in Barron Sharpe, the protagonist's older brother in Holly Black's THE CURSE WORKERS series. Hell, even Adrian Ivashkov from the VAMPIRE ACADEMY books. And you know that I am all for some Weasley love.

But I have to say:



These guys. The Marauders. Namely, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. As well as Lily and Severus Snape. Can't you just imagine it? I think it would be bloody brilliant, to be honest, documenting Voldemort's original rise to power, with the whole 70's changes in the Muggle World and Lily donning tie dyes under her robes, and some serious foreshadowing to the events that took place in Harry's time and how the characters would shape into their adult selves.

Bro. These brothers need some lovin'.

So, how about you? Comments are below. Which secondary character from a YA book or series would you like to see as the star of a series of their own?

NomnomnomnomFinnicknomnomnomMaraudersnomnom. Nom. Seriously, I would kill for the Marauders to have their own little anthology of stories. Especially Lupin *drool. wipes up drool. drools some more*.

My vote goes for Johanna from Catching Fire, or Dean Thomas.
