No Slacking Off Yet!

December 16th, 2009 • Kate

sexy-santa-bootsI really shouldn’t be slacking off yet. I’ve still got to get through the rest of this week (and 107 unread queries and all the partials and fulls I’ve requested) before I get to take my holiday vacation. So in lieu of a longer post today, so I can spend more time enjoying the Yule Festival in LotRO reading your entertaining manuscripts, I’m just going to point you towards today’s post on The Enchanted Inkpot, which asks:

Suppose you are throwing an end-of-the-year party, and you have all of children’s fantasy literature to draw upon. You can invite any character from any fantasy book, you can hold the party anywhere from Bag End to Hogwarts, you can feast on mik-bars or Turkish delight. So tell me about your party plans!

So who are you partying with? Leave your comment on the Inkies site, and here!

I’m going to compose my response in the comments!

    I'll have to think about my answer for a bit but for those of you out there who haven't yet tried Turkish delight – don't. Really, don't. It tastes like cardboard.

    I'd invite Eomer from LOTR. And, really, at f Karl Urban shows up at my house, the rest of the plans are really irrelevant. 😉

    at f = if (I really hate my computer.)

    I'd like to have my holiday feast at Hogwarts–no need to cook or clean, just eat and enjoy and let the elves handle the rest! Course, I'd like to sit next to Ron Weasley and across from the Twins so I can laugh all night.

    Merry and Pippin from LOTR. They really know how to party!

    I agree that it would have to be at Hogwarts. Nothing says Christmas like not having to cook and clean. As to who is going to attend my guest list would look something like: Merry and Pippin from LOTR, the Weasleys from Harry Potter, Arthur Penhaligon and Suzy Turquoise Blue from the Morrow Day books, Prince Caspian from the Chronicles of Narnia, and Alcatraz Smedry from Brandon Sanderson's MG fantasy books.

    It would be a little crazy. Between Suzy and Alcatraz, Hogwarts might be in ruins by the end of the day and I'm not sure about Hogwart's smoking policy for Merry and Pippin, but it doesn't really matter. I would just spend the night fawning over Prince Caspian, who would be a "golden haired youth" like he's supposed to be in the books. Though I wouldn't be against Ben Barnes showing up, as long as he didn't pretend to be Caspian.

    I wonder how Alcatraz will feel about being the only American. Interesting that most of the others are British, and I presume Arthur is Australian since Garth Nix is. It would definitely be an interesting night!

    I've always had a soft spot for Calvin from Wrinkle in Time, so let's invite him. And let's all Tesser to Hogwarts, because I am so on board with the idea of magical food and no clean up.

    Ok, so the band would be Eddi and the Fey, from Emma Bull's War for the Oaks. That I know. On the guest list? Hmmmm… maybe it'll be a girls night. Meggie from Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, Alanna from Tamora Pierce's Alanna books, Tally from the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, Kaye from Tithe by Holly Black, and Jane Jarvis from Devilish by MJ. The food would, of course, be cupcakes. And tea. And the location? Wonderland.
