Merry Fictional Blog Challenge

It’s been a while since I’ve done a fun little tag so when I saw this cute geek-themed Christmas blog challenge by Katy from Oh So Geeky, I couldn’t help myself. If you’d like to join in on the geeky fun, be sure to check out her original post with the questions then let me know so I can read your answers! 

Merry Fictional Blog Challenge

Advent Calendar: Traditions you celebrate during December?

Most of my traditions are reserved for Christmas Eve or Day… During the month, the only thing that seems to be traditional is watching lots of Christmas movies with friends!

Carols: What’s your favorite song(s)?

Pretty much anything on The Carpenters’ Christmas Portrait. Having grown up with it, I may be a bit biased, but in my opinion, it’s the ultimate perfect Christmas album, and I will say this till my dying day. 

Coal: A naughty character you’d send coal to?

Umbridge from Harry Potter. She is the WORST. Even the fact that she likes cats doesn’t redeem her at all.

Fireplace: Favorite Christmas movie that melts your heart?

So many good ones but I have to go with It’s A Wonderful Life. It never fails to give me the feels. 

Gingerbread: What’s your favorite holiday snack?

Does pie count? If so, then pie because I LOVE pie. Pretty much any kind will do…pumpkin, cherry, rhubarb, strawberry, peach, blueberry, brown butter, etc.

Hot Cocoa: What’s your favorite drink?

It might be considered more of a fall drink, but I’m still all about hot cider during the winter!

Mistletoe: Character you’d like to meet under the mistletoe?

Jumin Han from Mystic Messenger <3

Mittens: A cozy outfit that keeps you warm during winter?

Well, seeing how I’ve lived in Florida or Southern California most of my life, I usually don’t need more than a sweater to stay warm during the winter. However,  on those particularly cold days, the North Face jacket I bought during my year in NYC always keeps me warm.


Naughty: Three characters who’d make the Naughty list.

1. Negan – Sigh. I’m a fan of Jeffrey Dean Morgan and he plays this role SO WELL but what he did in that premiere episode… T_T

2. Kylo Ren – I don’t hate him, but killing your dad? Not cool, dude.

3. Scar from The Lion King – I just rewatched the movie with my sister and he was a very bad kitty. Killing your brother in cold blood then going after your nephew? Yikes. 

Nice: Three characters who’d make the Nice list.

1. Newt Scamander – He’s so gentle, innocent, and awkwardly sweet with such a caring heart for beasts – so many who are misunderstood.

2. Steve Rogers – He’s the ultimate “good guy” hero, always wanting to do what’s right. It’s his innately good, humble, selfless traits that landed him the Captain America gig in the first place.

3. Cinderella – I saw the live action not too long ago and was so charmed by her ability to “Have courage and be kind,” no matter the harsh circumstances around her. 

North Pole: If you could spend Christmas anywhere (even fictional), where would you go?

Hogwarts in a heartbeat!

Presents: A book or movie on your wishlist?

I’ve heard mixed reviews but I’d still like to read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I’d love to wait until after I see the show, but I don’t think it’ll happen for awhile and I keep seeing spoilers that are making me go “wait, what, seriously??” so might as well go ahead and read it for myself!

Rudolph: What’s your favorite TV holiday special?

Ahhh I really don’t know! Totally blanking right now! I’ll update this if I later think of something!

Santa: A character you’d love to exchange presents with? What would you get them?

I really wanted to avoid repeat answers…but Jumin from Mystic Messenger! Poor guy spent Christmas alone feeling so down. I’d love to give him a present to cheer him up! Something with his beloved cat, Elizabeth the 3rd, or just cats in general on it. He would love it. He’s also so thoughtful and generous, I think he’d be a great gift giver as well!

Scrooge: A villain you’d help see life in a different way?

Totally stealing this from Ashlee, but when I saw her answer I was like “YES! Definitely!” – Kilgrave from Jessica Jones. He was a messed up guy who did terrible things, but I too was hoping he would somehow be able to turn good in the end. 

Snowflake: Something that makes you feel special.

Three people in particular: My boyfriend, Luke – he makes me feel like the most beautiful and special girl in the whole world every day. My sister, Melissa – she cares and loves me so much I don’t even quite understand it (I don’t think she does either) haha. My friend, Courtney – she’s so supportive and understands all my geeky, fangirly tendencies like no ones else XD 

Tree: What do you decorate your house with for the season?

The most decorating we do at home is put up a Christmas tree or maybe a wreath. My dad’s not one for decorating so these things only get done if my sister and I do it. Last year, we didn’t arrive home till Christmas Eve. We were too exhausted to put up the tree so we just didn’t have one >.< However, when I have a home of my own, I’m definitely planning on decorating it lots for Christmas!

Yuletide: The top 3 things in your life that make you the most happy?

Besides the usual (family, boyfriend, friends)…Mystic Messenger, cats, and food.

BONUS: Ugly Christmas Sweater: Would you wear a sweater Molly Weasley made you or avoid it like the plague?

I would wear it with pride!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas this year!

  • Awe “It’s a Wonderful Life” gets me every time too. This was a great list. I enjoyed reading it and getting to know more about you.

  • I would love to see the ugly Christmas sweater! lol I’d like to visit Hogwarts in Disney.

  • Carrie

    I loved seeing who you want on the Naughty list! I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan also and he does such an amazing job with Negan that it is so hard not to love him and hate him all at once! I also think it is awesome that the things that make you feel special are your friends and family…most people don’t get that anymore!

  • Is it sad that I have never seen It’s A Wonderful Life? I think I better get on that! Amber N

    • I didn’t see it until 2 years ago and instantly fell in love with! It’s such a charming movie! Hope you get to see it soon! xx Amanda

  • What a fun post! I love It’s a Wonderful Life. That one tops my Christmas movie list, too, by giving me all the feels. I like the Charlie Brown/Peanuts Christmas special. 🙂

    • Ooh I need to watch that! I just saw It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown this year! So cute! xx Amanda

  • Laura Romberger

    I can’t say I know all the characters, but I know a good bit of them! I love this post, it’s so fun and unique. The Naughty and Nice List was my favorite part!

    • Awww, thank you, Laura!! It was definitely fun to write especially deciding the Naughty and Nice list ^^

      xx Amanda

  • Allison Lancaster

    What a fun post! A great way to get to know you a little better. I agree, most of our traditions are on Christmas Eve or Day, we do watch a lot of holiday movies throughout December.

  • Kristin & Megan

    And now I want some pie. Bwah! I’m a total banana or coconut cream pie girl myself. Mmmm, maybe I’ll make one for New Year’s Eve!

  • Oh my gosh, Umbridge is the perfect response for the coal question! I totally forgot about her, and you’re right, the fact that she loves cats and I still hate her…well, that’s just not good. And yay for Kilgrave! We had that glimpse of him being ‘good,’ or at least trying really hard to, and I was just hoping for more of it</3

  • Jalisa Marie

    Love all these. Sometimes we forget how creative we really are until we’re asked.

    • Haha, it’s always fun to do something a little fun and different!

  • Cute cute cute! Creative exercises like Rhiannon one will help you be a better writer. I used these with my students and they love them!

  • Marisa Hernandez

    What a fun challenge. Love it. I would have totally picked pie too!! And your kyle ren comment was too funny. Great post. I really enjoyed it.

  • What a fun challenge. i should do something like this next year. Yeah I would give Umbridge a big lump of coals as well. She is horrible. xx

  • Jennifer Anderson Marx

    Umbridge IS a horrible character! And Newt is awesome — I really enjoyed his personality. This was a fun challenge! Thanks for sharing your answers. 🙂

  • TheMummyToolbox

    I love this blog challenge, it’s a great way to get to know everyone and I am definitely with you on the sweater! of course I would wear one!

  • These are so fun! I totally agree with you on Umbridge! haha and my response to winter clothes would be the same. Also hot apple cider for the win! it’s the best!

  • Twin Pickle

    Totally agree with the naughty and nice list choices! Haha.

  • Thanks for joining my blog challenge! I loved your answer! Pie is so good during the holiday season – pumpkin might be a fall flavor but it’s my favorite. I’d totally put Negan on the naughty list too. 🙂

  • Jazzmine Woodard

    I’d send coal and an exploding bag of glitter that sticks everywhere to Dolores Umbridge. She’s the worst!

  • I love this blog challenge! It helps you to get to know people better.

  • TheLocdBella

    Umbridge needs to be on the naughty list. She’s absolutely annoying.

  • You are the sweetest human being!!!!! You’re in my top 3 too!
    And yes to our JuJu getting an honarable mention twice… and…. you want the curse child novel you say? Hmmmmmmmm 😉
