The Disney Sidekick Book Tag, Revisited

Hey friends!

A few weeks ago my friend P.T. Lockwood reached out to me about redoing a book tag we did together a few years ago: the Disney Sidekick book tag. Back then, she wrote as Charlotte, and you can read our original post here.

Basically, she posted the old one on her blog and I’m going to post our new, updated answers here!

Here’s her post; you should definitely check out and follow her amazing blog.

Anyway, here we go:

MUSHU FROM MULAN/OLAF + SVEN FROM FROZEN

THE COMIC RELIEF – NAME YOUR FAVORITE HILARIOUS CHARACTER OR YOUR FAVORITE COMEDY/FUNNY BOOK

Piper: Yup. Still Keefe. Always Keefe. Why wouldn’t it be Keefe? How could it not be Keefe???Guys, he is the Epitome of Sarcasm, the Royal Inventor of the Smart Butt, and Lord Hunkyhair of Nicknames. (Also, it really bugs me that I spelled Sencen wrong in my original answer. I mean, come on 2017 self, do you know anything? XD)!)

(the aforementioned Keefe is from Keeper of the Lost Cities)

Clara: It’s still Carswell Thorne (The Lunar Chronicles). I have never had a character make me laugh aloud as much as that man. The rice incident? Classic.

THE SEVEN DWARFS FROM SNOW WHITE

FAVORITE GROUP/ENSEMBLE

Piper: Oookay, this one has changed. Honestly, now that I think about it, it’s like, I really like the Collective and I know that in this next book we are going to learn a lot more about them (hopefully). Anyways, my answer now would have to be everyone’s favorite OG squad: Annabeth Chase, Grover Underwood, and Perseus Jackson from Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief. They always stay true to one another and, overall, the friendships between Percy and Annabeth to Grover always stay strong even after Percy and Annabeth start dating, which is… rare. Gosh, I love ’em!

Clara: I still love the Rampion Crew, don’t get me wrong. But since the first time doing this tag I’ve met the Crows (Six of Crows) and they’re pretty amazing. So, both? I can’t really pick because I love them for very different reasons.

PASCAL FROM TANGLED

THE LOYAL CHEERLEADER CHAMELEON – NAME A BOOK THAT STARTED OUT ONE WAY BUT CHANGED FOR YOU

Piper: (Alluding to the original post:) So, funny thing. I haven’t even finished the Land of Elyon series. I have tried, but I just can’t. get. through. the. second. book. (I am going to try again soon since my opinions have changed and I do like “classic”- type literature better, but we’ll see).

Hmm… Probably, Through Rushing Water by Catherine Richmond. That was another book that took me a very, very long to get through- I stopped reading it then went back to start it over about 3 times- but I persisted and in the end, I thought it was a pretty good book. Honestly, the last chapters when Sophia and Will are back in the city are the best parts of the whole book. The ending was very well done.

ClaraWuthering Heights. And it didn’t change for the better. I actually started out loving it, but the entire second half was not a fun time for me. I do plan on rereading it though, so it may be better on a second read.

MEEKO FROM POCAHONTAS

POCAHONTAS’S SLY AND SNEAKY RACCOON FRIEND – NAME A PLOT TWIST THAT YOU DID NOT SEE COMING

Piper:

*Percy Jackson Spoilers*

Ok, I still hold to the Entwined plot twist thing, but even more so, Luke being bad. Call me wackadoodle, but my 9, no 10, or 8? (guys, I don’t how how old I was when I read Percy Jackson) year old self totally did not expect Luke to be on Kronos’s side.

*End Spoilers*

Clara: I read a play called Veronica’s Room recently. The entire thing is a plot twist I didn’t see coming.

Also can we talk about Queen of Nothing by Holly Black? There were quite a few plot twists in there too that *might* have caused some screaming. Maybe.

RAJAH FROM ALADDIN / FLOUNDER FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID

GENTLE WITH THEIR PRINCESS BUT PROTECTIVE WITH EVERYONE ELSE – NAME YOUR FAVORITE BEST FRIEND IN A NOVEL

Piper: Oooh, ooh, ooh! Pick me! Keefe. K-E-E-F-E. The best best friend ever. Always there for Sophie, tries his best to bring her joy even in the hardest of times, but he knows his place and takes a step back when certain… events happen (8th book, ladies & gents? Yes, you know what I’m saying).

Clara: Lately I’ve been reading Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco and Liza and Audrey Rose’s relationship is kinda amazing? I am really excited to finally have Liza in more than just letters and seeing the growth and development of their relationship is awesome.

LOUIS FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / SEBASTIAN FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID / COGSWORTH, LUMIERE, MRS. POTTS, & CHIP FROM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

THE MUSICAL BUNCH – NAME A NOVEL WHERE MUSIC PLAYED A BIG PART OR MADE YOU WANT TO SING ITS PRAISES

Piper: Oh, A Tale of Two Cities (such a great book). I could imagine background music while I was reading it. Actually, I found this sad music playlist on YouTube and had it on while reading the end of the book. Lots of tears. Lots of tears.

Clara: Umm…..my brain said Bandstand and then I remembered that Bandstand is, in fact, a Broadway musical, not a novel.

The Great Gatsby? It’s set in the Jazz Age, so I guess there’s somewhat of a musical aspect? Also it’s only my favorite book in this world.

MAXIMUS FROM TANGLED

THE OBSTACLE IN FLYNN RIDER’S WAY – NAME A CHARACTER THAT FACES A LOT OF OBSTACLES

Piper: I still answer Katniss from The Hunger Games on this one, 100%. As Clara put it in her original answer, “is there a character who went through more than Katniss?”

Clara: Audrey Rose Wadsworth. I mean, I still 100% agree that Katniss went through a lot of terrible things, but I’ve been reading about Audrey Rose more recently and I really, really admire her. She is a young woman in Victorian society who wants to study forensics. The social obstacles she has to face to become who she wants to be are terrible, but she overcomes them and I love it.

HAMISH, HUBERT, & HARRIS FROM BRAVE

FAVORITE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN A NOVEL

Piper: I still concur with my 2017 self, the Weasleys have some awesome family dynamics. But to add to that answer, the Penderwick family. Their relationships are so beautiful and so… precious. Honestly, I think precious is the best way to put it. Also, Mr. Penderwick deserves Best Dad of the Year Award.

ClaraQueen of Nothing. It ends with a really nice, sweet portrayal of an unusual but loving family.

RAY FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / 3 FAIRIES FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY

THE ADVICE GIVERS – A BOOK THAT MOST IMPACTED YOUR LIFE

Piper:  Well, first and foremost, the Bible, but aside from that, Wonder by R. J. Palicio taught me so much. Already, I had been struggling in my life working through the uncomfortable, sinful feelings that naturally come from being around people with special needs or those that look different than you, so this book really hit home for me. It reinforced that lesson to love people because we are all created as One through God, we are all equal, and we are all called to love each other.

Clara: The Percy Jackson series was such an influence on my younger years. Those are the books I have the clearest memories of reading as a child. I would not be who I am without them.

HEI HEI FROM MOANA

NAME A CHARACTER THAT STEALS THE SHOW

Piper: (“Merry and Pippin”) Fred and George (I hope you got that ;D). Oh dear, dear Fred and George. They will always be some of our favorite show stealers.

Clara: Nikolai in the Grisha Trilogy. He’s just my favorite thing.

 

That’s it for today! Again, don’t forget to go check out Piper’s blog and give her a follow :).

Have a great day!

-Clara
