The Fantasy Sports Olympics!!!
I’ve chosen 7 characters to compete in 7 fantasy sports, from Quidditch to Sky Jumping. And, yes, I’ve definitely missed some sports (like dragon riding!), so feel free to add ‘em in the comments. Seriously, guys, I really wanted to feature the dragon riding thing, but there are so many varieties and characters, I didn’t want to pick just one.
Each character will play in his or her own sport and will be matched against fellow characters, with a chance to medal in three key categories:
- Sheer daring
Cue the Olympic Anthem for the parade of athletes!
And, now, the medal ceremonies!
Hunger Games stands at the top here. The tributes are constantly on the run, forced to survive in and adapt to elements that are literally being created for the express purpose of killing them, AND they have to battle each other on top of that. Yeah...I think they're about as athletic as it gets. Harry Potter and crew make their first medal appearance in the games at the silver level. From Quidditch to deep sea shenanigans to facing dragons (Hey, I got it in here, after all. Huzzah!), they have to be pretty darn athletic - physically and wits-wise. The bronze winner is Vin from Mistborn, who does awesome parkour-like routines off the sides of buildings thanks to her ability to "pull and push" with innate metals. Think of it like those nifty stunt wires...only it comes from within her instead!
