25 Things to Remember When You Become a Book Character

by Gravity


1. Dark closets usually mean death

2. Hide your children/younger siblings or they will die

3. If your boyfriend/girlfriend dies, they are either not dead or coming back to life

4. Mother does not always know best

5. You probably knew your villain a long time ago and just don't remember

6. There's no such thing as an accident 

7. There is no such thing as a coincidence

8. It's not smart to run around in the woods when there's a serial killer on the loose

9. "I didn't do it" never goes over well

10. If you're in trouble and someone is about to kill you, an unexpected character will save you. Don't worry.

11. Don't marry the vampire. He will eat you.

12. You aren't the only person who knows how to use polyjuice potion

13. Remember to get enough pearls to also bring your best friend out of the Underworld when it's time to leave

14. If you hear something go bump in the night, don't go back to sleep

15. Don't investigate the creepy noises, run away

16. If you at first date someone on a dare but then really fall for them, he or she will find out and hate you no matter what you tell them

17. Know the characteristics of a vampire

18. If you don't know which wire to cut, just cut all of them

19. If you destroy New York City to save people, don't worry. It will be repaired by the time the next book or movie comes out

20. Your Aunt and Uncle lied about how your parents died

21. Or your parents are not dead

22. High heels are horrible for running away but they make great weapons

23. If people think you're crazy, you're probably sane. Probably.

24. Villains either speak monkey or bird, so watch out for their evil sidekicks

25. Your cell phone will never work when you need it most

I loved that that was a fun imaginative and you took things from Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Avengers, and I think Tangled.

The references to different fandoms are hilarious. The more general entries are also funny, and they have the added benefit of being a "what tropes should I avoid in my own writing" sort of guide. I didn't see any grammatical errors. Good work!

Ah, Gravity. It's been far too long. I see you still have that amazing something about you that most writers do not. Let's face it, this is not a story. It is not poetry, nor a piece of literature. No, my friend, this is entertainment. Entertainment at its finest! Entertainment which, sometimes, can be hard to find in literature. Rest assured that entertainment has its place in the writing world and on the Young Writer's Society. Especially this piece of entertainment. Something I particularly loved about it was how tediously hard you worked to perfect the references. I understood a few. There was one from Percy Jackson, the Avengers, Spider Man (I believe), and I think there was a Harry Potter reference in there too. It's always so nice to see references bring pieces of writing to life, and this was quite full of them. Excellent work, Gravity. I'll be sure to assist you in gaining top spot on Literary Spotlight.

That is, on one condition; you make a sequel to your movie, and bring back George Clooney. Thank you.

Hey, :)
Omg, this is awesome. I was laughing most of the time and crying from laughter the rest! This was awesome and very true in most cases! :)


18. If you don't know which wire to cut, just cut all of them.
This one I can totally relate too, Ive said this so many times when reading a book or watching a movie!

22. High heels are horrible for running away but they make great weapons.
I wear heels a lot since Im a rather short person so I can totally relate to this since Ive swung my heel in threat to a teasing friend more then once...:P That is awesome!!!

3. If your boyfriend/girlfriend dies, they are either not dead or coming back to life.
Right?????? EVERYTIME!!! :D

Yes this was an awesome post, Im so glad I ran across it! Totally brightened my day! :) You definitely have a knack for making people laugh, so keep up the great writing, Im looking forward to reading more funny stuff from you!!! :D

Hello! Ash here for a Review!

Hilarious! I was laughing the whole way through. They are all very true though. Whenever I read a book and their is a serial killer or something, the main character ends up alone in the woods alone, and their cellphone doesn't work..

My favorite:

"22. High heels are horrible for running away but they make great weapons"

I haven't seen a high heel used in a book yet, but I would like to! :D

Hope to read more of your work soon! (This earned a Fav from me, that's for sure! :))

This is great. The Harry Potter references are amazing, (number 12 XD) and all are so very true. I feel like poking fun at cliches in popular writing is very important for a satire writer. The really sad thing is that all these get used constantly. My pet peeves aside, an excellent piece. I noticed you skipped punctuating at the end of a lot of these. Was that purposeful? Good work, and I look forward to the next one.

This is hysterical. I love the Harry Potter references (in case you couldn't tell by my name, I'm a hardcore Harry Potter fan). Vampires--so right. Some of the references I don't understand, but they're still funny. I should totally write the most stereotypical horror-vampire romance-urban fantasy ever. That would be so much fun (especially when considering what I usually write about--so serious and depressing. There's a need for a short break!)
Keep writing, and have fun.

I love this! It's so satirical and it just makes me smile :D

Whenever I watch cartoon shows (yes I am 22 and still watch cartoons) I always laugh at how if a character is injured they are seemingly okay in the next pan.

I would critique this for you but I can't find anything to critique!

I'm really looking forward to reading my works by you!

I figured that this needs to get out of the green room so I thought I would add a review as well.

12. You aren't the only person who knows how to use polyjuice potion

13. Remember to get enough pearls to also bring your best friend out of the Underworld when it's time to leave

I really like theses ones because Harry Potter and Percy Jackson are two of my favorite series.

19. If you destroy New York City to save people, don't worry. It will be repaired by the time the next book or movie comes out

I also like this one because it is so true. It is kind of uncanny how they can do that.

20. Your Aunt and Uncle lied about how your parents died

21. Or your parents are not dead

I also like these ones because it tends to happen a lot.

Hey.

Haha I enjoyed it and related it to soooo many books, it was a general one right? :P And the 11th one, doesn't always happen. :3 But anyhow, I really liked it, I mean, I wouldn't think of compiling such things. Great idea.

And good job on getting featured :D

KUDOOOSSSSS

Keep writing and stay blessed.
