  1. It was hard to pick though I finally picked Hermione. It makes me wonder: why would anyone want to bring a criminal brat like Snape into our world?

    • Yah. I picked Percy. I did. And then I realized that it meant Percy from Harry Potter, not Percy from Percy Jackson. If I had known that before, I totally would have picked either Katniss or Hermione. NOT. FAIR. They should specify which character is from which book.

    • *gasp choke* SNAPE IS AWESOME!!!!!!! Okay, well he’s a little harsh, but he is so amazing. He is like Leo Valdez. super hot mc-shizzle…. don’t judge me. In my opinion, if he were alive, it would be more interesting than if somebody like Neville were alive (I still love you, Neville) even though I don’t particularly like Slytherins sometimes…

    • I thought about Dumbledore, but I thought about how the character would be effected by this sudden life-long change in scenery. In this world, there’s no guarantee a wizard would keep their magic. Maybe they’d just keep their memory of magic, and Dumbledore would have a whole lifetime already passed in the wizarding world. He was 150. That leaves very few years to either morn the loss of the world he’d lived in, or be homeless in a world that wouldn’t know or appreciate him.

      If I chose Dumbledore as a young man, he could have been snatched from the time when he’d met and known Grindlewald, and as much as I know he’s a dark wizard, I wouldn’t keep someone from who they loved. In that case we’d all face the consequences of a clever man with big ideas who might never do magic again. Instead I imagine he could become obsessive with things in our world,or realize that the slain sister, love he could never have and tragic family meant even less to the world than families that we’ll never know about in suburban Canada.

    • why don’t you bring something that Earth actually have now, like Dobby, it would be good to see an house elf in real life

    • Tally Youngblood is from The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. We would highly recommend checking this series out if you haven’t yet!

  2. I’m not even sure who all the characters they are referring to are. Emma? There are thousands of fictional characters with that name. The first one that comes to mind is the Jane Austen character, but she really doesn’t fit with all the other choices.

  3. I chose ‘other’ and I typed in Maximum Ride (from the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson). I think she should have been a character. Flock forever!

  4. I wish they had Hazel from the “Heroes of Olympus” series by Rick Riordan… I’d totally be her!!! Or Nico Di Angelo!!! 🙂

  5. Hermione all the way, who I want to believe is played by Emma Watson but I could be wrong. It’s been forever since I’ve sat down and just watched all of the HP’s all of the way through. This was a tough question in my opinion, because I love HP himself but I guess Emma’s character was my first choice/favorite as well.

    • I’m pretty sure they meant Percy from Harry Potter, but even so, I picked Percy for the same reason. PERCY JACKSON 4EVR!!!

  6. I picked Hagrid because come one, he’s like the nicest character in the Harry Potter series. And he’s absolutely fascinating because of his knowledge on magical creatures. Or another option I would have chosen would be Sirius Black, just another one of my favorite characters.

  7. I chose Meggy from Inkheart. Why? She can read characters into and out of books! I no longer have to choose. EVERYONE TO THE HUMAN WORLD!

  8. I chose TinTin. I just loved the comic book series. it makes me so sad that America hardly knows about him, He is more famous in Europe. If you’ve never read the adventures of TinTin, Go and look them up! He’s a bit of an acquired taste, but it is still a great read! (I Think it may have been published before the moon landing, hence the reason TinTin is first man on the moon.)

  9. Though, they still had a few other good choices. but would we really want to put any more stress on our hero’s? surely zapping them out of their worlds and into ours wouldn’t be a very good idea. poor characters.

  10. I said Mr. Darcy…because…hello. He beats them all. Actually I was really really torn because I would marry Aragorn if he wasn’t 87 and fictional and my competition wasn’t an elvish lady…either way. Mr. Darcy was the logical choice because he’s been setting unrealistic expectations for years and I shall never love a fictional man more!

  11. I loved all of these guys, but I had to choose other, if I absolutely had to.

    I would totally have the Doctor from Doctor Who come alive.

    That would just be awesome.

    Don’t you think?

  12. Dorian Havillard from the Throne of Glass series. He is just a cinnamon role, too sweet, too pure for this world and must be protected at all cost.

  13. I chose Legolas just because I want to ask him who hell his mom was. It’s very important to me that I know. Did he get his love of archery from her?? I just really need to know what she was like???

  14. I would say Celaena Sardothien from the ThroneOf Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas.

    I would choose her because she ahas literally been to Hell and back; she’s brave, clever, intelligent, sneaky, mischeievious, and she cares about the people around her. Though she can be a bit arrogant, stubborn, and a bit rude and straight-forward at times.

  15. SNAPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love him so much!!!!! I wish he wasnt dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *cries hysterically*

  16. That’s hard… I would choose between Severus Snape, Skulduggery Pleasant, Ironhide (Movie), Knockout (TFP), Thorin Oakenshield or Bilbo Baggins.

    OK, um… Knockout! He’s always been my favourite. Or maybe Unicron… Nah, Knockout.

  17. I chose OTHER and put Leo Valdez. MY BAB!!! Seriously though, who wouldn’t want to bring back Leo Valdez?

    I once saw some meme where Spencer from iCarly had on a spoon hat. Above him it said “Percy got the girl he wanted, Frank got Hazel, Jason had to lose his memory to get his girlfriend, but meanwhile, Leo was being awesome”. And then Spencer said “I made a spoon hat!” It made me come up with something hilarious. The same text except Leo said “Look! I made bio-engineered assault turtles with acid breath!”
    If you get the reference you when the Black Card

  18. I know I’m grown-up-ish but I would bring Miss. Frizzle from the Magic School bus because she would be like the funnest person to hang out with. So positive and so happy. The world needs some more people like that!
