Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Revisit as Adults

Harry Potter - You all knew it was coming, so might as well get it over with. Obviously the character I'd most want to revisit as an adult is the boy who lived. To hell with 'revisiting' I'll just take his ENTIRE life story please and thank you.  I'd be content reading about Harry Potter sleeping, eating and taking out the trash. All of it!

Lirael - I was going to go with Sabriel, who is my perennial favorite, but with Lirael's story, we do get glimpses of Sabriel as an adult - it's not nearly enough but it still counts. Lirael transformed so much through a short amount of time, I'd love to see the kind of woman she becomes!

Kaladin Stormblessed - Granted, Kaladin is already an adult but he's a young adult so I'm going to count him. I feel like I need to know what he'll become as he matures.  He's already transformed so much in a couple of books, I imagine his future will be EPIC.

Aelin Galathynius - Another young adult but still, isn't everyone DYING to know who she'll evolve into in the next two ToG books?! I mean, she went from assassin to slave, to champion, to rebel to warrior to queen! What's next?  I have no doubt that her entire existence will be mind-blowing.

Samwise Gamgee - Poor Sam suffers so much only to survive with some of the biggest losses of all. I just want to know that the poor guy is ok, that he was able to let go of what happened and move on with his life.

Blue Sargent - Granted, I could have picked any one of my beloved Raven Boys, but with some of their futures...uncertain...I opted to go with dear, sweet Blue. I hope she survives whatever's in store in The Raven King and that she gets to kiss her true love WITHOUT ANY consequences. 

Percy Jackson - Percy Jackson is the best thing. His sass is pure gold. I'd love to see what kind of adult he becomes! So far we've seen him age up from 12 to 16 years old so I'm hoping we can follow him into adulthood.

Lyra Belacqua - Lyra is such a unique kid! She's almost already a cross between an adult and a child. I'd give anything to see what kind of a woman she grew up to be. How she shaped her world...I'm sure it was entertaining to say the least.

Avatar Aang - Ok so we met Aang in an animated series, but I've read the graphic novels so it counts right?  Aang was an absolute brilliant hero and he was just a kid!  Those glimpses that we got of him in Legends of Korra just weren't enough! I want an adult Aang and the gAang series!

Katniss Everdeen - Poor, brave Katniss. I mean, I know there's no way that she could ever be fully ok after all she endured but checking in on her and Peeta would ease my mind.  They deserved so much better than what they got but at least they have each other!

So what about you guys? What characters do you wish you could revisit as adults?


  1. Hi Micheline! I have missed reading your posts! I'm so glad to be back. Great choices! I would definitely want to visit Harry Potter as an adult, especially, since I just re-read the last 3 books. My obsession with HP has reached an all time high.

  2. Great list, Micheline! So many characters on your list I'd love to revisit too - especially Aang, Lirael and Sam. :) At least we do get to see more Lirael later this year!

  3. I put Katniss and Harry on my list as well. I mean the whole cast of both books. Everyone endured so much, how are they growing and living.

    My TTT Amethyst Blue

  4. I absolutely love Blue! She is so amazing, and I would love to see her as an adult, too. Katniss definitely deserved much more than what we were left with from her world, too.
    Great list, Micheline.

  5. I'm curious about Katniss too, haven't read the books but saw the movies. And some of these names I love even if I haven't read the books. Kaladin Stormblessed, Aelin Galathynius- wow. I want to know more about them just because of their names! :)

    And Sam... wouldn't it be awesome to see how things go in the Shire years later? Would love that!

  6. LOL I saw Harry Potter on a lot of the lists this week. I too would love to see what happened in the years between the defeat of Voldemort and the last scene where they're all on the train platform sending the next generation to school. I mean, so many years! So much must have happened!

  7. Harry Potter sleeping, eating and taking out the trash? Sounds like a decent prospective HP story to me XD. Aelin as an adult would be such a cool character. From the moment we met her she’s been evolving and I can’t wait to see what her story and evolution finally culminates in, character-wise. And I love what you said for Blue! I really, really hope she finally gets her kiss! I’ve yet to get my copy of The Raven King, and I can’t wait to finally read it. Plus, your little Goodreads statuses have been making me even more excited for it! Percy would be such a cool adult! I’m sure he would make a super cool dad too :D I also love how you described Lyra as being “a cross between an adult and a child”. I think that’s a pretty accurate description for her character! I loved this post and the characters you picked for it ^^

  8. Harry Potter all the way. Harry Potter always :)

  9. Blue for sure! I am utterly, utterly consumed by TRK right now; IT IS EVERYTHING! XD Those glimpses of Aang in Korra were definitely nowhere near enough! I was kind of surprised when I started watching that show that Aang and Katara's kids were already grown up. There are still so many more gAang stories to tell there!

  10. Yes :D We got to see snatches of adult life for Harry and Katniss, but I would also love to see more inside their adult lives. I would also love to see the woman that Blue becomes later. I feel like her adult life would still be so entertaining especially if the women at 300 Fox Way are any indication. Aelin...Yes! I'm bursting at the seems to see how the rest of her story plays out.

  11. Ah, Percy Jackson is a great choice for this week's topic! I'm sure whatever he's doing is pretty badass.

    And yeah, we got to see small glimpses of Harry and the crew and also Katniss, but it would have been cool to see what they were really up to in real life.

  12. I would so love to see Percy as a sassy adult possibly with smart sassy kids who give him a run for his money lol. And of course Harry, I always want more Harry! Great list!

  13. Blue and Aelin, definitely! Katniss is a pretty good pick too, I loved the scene at the end of the Mockingjay movie and would have liked to see/read more about that. It's kind of hard to imagine Blue as an adult!

  14. I am so bummed that I missed this topic, it is SO fun to think about characters you'd love to see in the future. I feel like at least we got a glimpse of Katniss's general future, so I can work with that ;) I think I would want to visit characters that you never really got a sense of where the ended up- like Gale, or Johanna Mason- basically side characters in books. Kenji from Shatter Me, Roar from Under the Never Sky... just characters who you LOVED, but weren't the focus of the story. Great list!!
