Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11?
A. Kumalo or Lucy? Hard choice...but probably Kumalo. His perspective on criminal law would be fascinating.
B. Caitlyn or Cal-Raven? Caitlyn would have a unique perspective, but Cal-Raven would be more creative.
c. Shyllen, a dragon shape-shifter, or the Dread Pirate Roberts? Can't I have both?

Is 2 nice?
A. Milo is nice, but clueless
B. Smaug is not nice.
c. I'm not sure if nice is the right word for a seven-head man, but sure, Mischief's nice

12 sends 8 on a mission--what is it?
A. Meg sends Auralia to find Meg's missing father. Auralia calls upon the Keeper, who finds Meg's father in the Cent Regus Core, but the colors restore him.
B. Justin sends Dante on a mission? Well, considering that Justin's a Christ figure and Dante descended into hell...Justin would send Dante to one of the colored lakes.
c. Soren sends the Keeper to find his parents, but the Keeper returns with the Northchildren instead.

What is 9's favorite book?
A. Abigail needs something about grief management and health
B. Mila would like pictures of the ocean.
c. Robbie loves the Scrolls of Allebe

Would 2 swear fealty to 6, or vice versa?
a. I think Koren would swear to Kumalo, because she's a slave.
b. Smaug and Caitlyn both have wings, but I think Caitlyn would swear to Smaug because Smaug breaths fire.
c. Mischief would swear to Shyllen, because dragons are more frightening

Would 9 or 10 make a better roomate for 5?
a.I think Meggie should room with Abigail and the North Wind--Abigail and North Wind would get along nicely, and Meg could tell them stories.
b. Daryl should room with Tabitha because Mila is used to sleeping on a island, not in a bedroom.
c. Peniel would room with Robbie, because Reepicheep is too short.

What would happen if 3, 7 and 12 went out for dinner?
a. I think Ransom would leave his wallet behnd, but Meg would tab up the bill and figure out how to pay. Turin, though, would start swinging his sword and insulting people until Ransom knocked him out.
b. Ardwin, Feanor, and, a winged boy, a crazy avenger, and a Christ figure. So..Feanor gets distracted by a jewelry store and charges in demanding the Silmarills. Ardwin's wing slips out from under his cloak and wounds someone. Justin gets them out and heals them with water and fruit. As a result, Feanor agrees to seek conseiling.
c. Goneff, a mouse, would be nervous around Soren the owl, and Quixote would attempt to spear cars, and no one would get to eat.

If 3 dueled 10, who would win?
A. Why would Ransom fight the North Wind?
B. Why would Ardwin fight 12-year-old Tabitha? She's too sweet...
c. If Don Quixote fought Reepicheep, I think Reep would win eventually

If 1 stole 8's most valuable possession, what would happen?
A. What, Bonnie didn't steal Auralia's cloak. She picked it up for safekeeping and gave it back.
B. Let's see, Koren took Dante', Virgil. She hoped he could guide her out of Starlight, but when he couldn't help, she gave him back.
c. The Grand Elusa, a giant spider, stole the people's dreams of the Keeper. The Keeper would...I don't know what he'd do.

Give a title for a story in which 7 and 12 get what they want.
A. Turin wants to escape fate, and Meg wants her father back. Because Turin's fate is tied to his father, the story is Rescueing the Father.
B. Feanor and Justin? Isn't it bad enough that they had to dine together? Justin wants to redeem his people, and Feanor wants his Silmarills back. But both are...Precious.
c. Goneff and Soren both want freedom and a role in life. Their story would be "Free"

What plot device would bring 1 and 4 together?
A. Bonnie Silver and Quinton? I think Quinton would try to take Bonnie as one of his "brides" and nail her to the wall...ew!
B. After the restoration of all things, Benjiah is sent to Starlight to help Koren rescue the slaves.
c. Black writes the Grand Elusa into his world, but the Grand Elusa eats him, thereby saving Billy, Darcy and Johanny much trouble

What happens when 7 visits for the weekend?
A. Turin? Oh no, lock away all sharp objects and hid from orcs.
B. Feanor? As if Turin wasn't bad enough, now I have a meglomanic human-hating elf prince in my house? Elbereth perserve me!
c. After Feanor and Turin, i can handle Goneff, a Prince of Mousethieves pretty easily. As long as he doesn't jump out at me.

What service would you want 3 to perform for you?
A. I'd just want Ransom to tell me about Perelandra.
B. Ardwin could tell me stories about flying.
c. I'd like Don Quixote to teach me swordplay

Does 11 like writing or drawing?
A. I don't know if Lucy does.
B. Cal-Raven likes sculpting, which is like drawing.
c. Wesley prefers piracy

If 2 had to join 4 or 5, which would s/he choose?
A. If Milo had to join Quinton or Meggie, he'd choose Meggie because she tells good stories. Plus, Quinton's a murderer.
B. If Smaug had to join Benjiah or Daryl, he'd try to burn them first, but Daryl would tell so many jokes he'd laugh to death.
c. I think John Mischief would rather join Peniel than Black, because Black is a murder.

What would 10's battle cry be?
A. The North Wind would sing a psalm about the end of sorrow.
B. Tabitha would sing, "Hallujah, I have found him"
c. Reepicheep would say "In the name of Aslan!"

What song characterizes 8?
A. Dante would sing, "I fell into a burning ring of fire..."
B. Auralia's theme song would be "Waiting for the World to Fall" by Jars of Clay
c. The Keeper's song would be "Lion" by Rebecca St. James, even though it's not a lion

What pickup line would 2 say to 10?
A. Milo would ask the North Wind if he may go out with her. Hey, it worked for Diamond.
B. Smaug would ask Tabitha to investigae his jeweled waistcoat.
c. Mischief would try asking Reepicheep if he likes cheese, but Reep would attack.

What would 5 be arrested for?
a. Meggie would be arrested for chaos from reading fictional charaters out of books.
b. Daryl would be arrested for interdimensional trespassing.
c. Peniel would be arrested on charges of religious intolerence

If 11 and 9 raced, who would win?
A. Abigail and Lucy wouldn't race, they'd have a leisurely walk and take so long the judge would go home.
b.Cal-Raven would ride and run better, but Mila could swim...wait, this isn't a triathlon.
c. Westley versus Robbie...Robbie would ride a dragon, but Westley can run really fast, so maybe a draw.

What was the lowest point of 1's life?
A. Well,Bonnie's mother died, she gets trapped in a stone, dies in Hades...I'm not sure
B. Koren's lowest point was in the cattle camp.
c. Grand Elusa has a low point of hunger

1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that s/he is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest. What title would you give this fic?

A. So, Bonnie Silver and Abigail team up against Quinton's evil scheme. Lucy joins them, but she's actually Quinton's spy. After Quinton kidnaps Meg, Bonnie and Abigail follow Maggie's advice and find Ransom. I would call it Rise of the Children, because all but two are underage.

B. Koren and Mila team up against Benjiah and his spy Cal-Raven, who have captured Justin. On Daryl's wise advice (Daryl? Wise?) they find Ardwin who defeats the villians. It would be called Somehow This All Works Out, because it's so upside down.

c. The Grand Elusa and Robbie team up against Black and Westley, who kidnap Soren. But Peniel tells them to find Don Quixote, who defeats evil. It would be called Sometimes Dreams Come True, because Quixote gets to fight
