This is the challenge that was created by Jessethereader over on YouTube, and I’ve had such a fun time seeing everyone’s videos on it that I wanted to join in! Only problem is, I don’t actually post videos anymore on my channel. It didn’t seem fair to me that only booktubers could participate, but then I thought to myself that there isn’t any rule saying that you have to have a youtube channel to do this challenge. So here we are. I asked for some coordinates on both my twitter and instagram, and I was able to get enough responses to do the challenge! Let’s find out what my new life is like!
You’re getting a new identity! Let the coordinates guide you to a book, flip to the page you were given, and the first name you see is now your new name!
Book: Dangerous Women (anthology edited by George R.R. Martin)
The first name that I see on this page is Nora! Since this is a series of short stories I don’t know who Nora is, but I’m assuming she’s a badass considering the anthology is about dangerous women. I’ll take it!
It’s time to get up and move the heck out of your town! The location of the book your coordinates lead you to will be where you’re moving.
I guess I’m moving to the city of Merit. Does this mean I have the potential to become an EO? Do I already have powers? Maybe that’s why I’m a dangerous woman, I have some sort of super power!
You’re all settled into your new home, but you’ve gotta get a job to get that cash money flow goin. Create a job using the first object you find with the coordinates and page number.
Book: The Eye of the World
I had to circle back around on this shelf because this one actually only holds 17, but I landed on The Eye of the World! The first object I saw was saddle, so I guess that means I make saddles…in Merit? Is there a need for saddles there? I mean, I guess they could have a mounted police force, but I have a feeling that I don’t make much money making saddles in Merit.
You’ve started your job and you’ve started developing feelings for a coworker. Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, and the first character you come across will be the character you’re falling for.
Book: Hero of Ages
I’m happy that I didn’t see any spoilers for this book because it’s the third in the Mistborn series and I’ve only actually finished the first book. The coworker that I start to develop feelings for is Elend! Not bad, but definitely not my first choice of book boyfriends.
Using the coordinates & the page number, the first piece of dialogue you come across will be the first thing you say to your potential lover.
Book: Servant of Rage by A.Z. Anthony
“You know something of this power?” Hmmm, so maybe I’m an EO and my cover is saddle making, and maybe Elend discovers that I have some sort of power that he knows about. Maybe I’m a mistborn, or at least a misting!
That line really got to them, next thing you know you’re in love! You’re going to propose, but buying a wedding ring is too expensive. Using the coordinates & flipping the page to the page number you were given, the first object you come across will be what you propose with.
Book: The Girl from Everywhere
The first object I see is gold. If I’m too poor to have wedding rings, how can I afford gold??? Maybe I AM a mistborn after all….
We’ve arrived at your wedding! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, and the first piece of dialogue you find will be the first line in your vows.
Book: Children of Time
So there wasn’t any dialogue on page 137, so I went to the next section of dialogue I could find. Of course, the first line I see is literally “shut up”. Elend must’ve said something dumb because I don’t think I would’ve started my vows with that! Maybe he accidentally is revealing my identity as a mistborn in Merit at the wedding?
It’s honey moon time! Wherever the book’s location that your coordinates lead you to will be the destination for your lovers retreat!
Book: Wicked Saints
Tranavia….just perfect. A little blood magic for a honeymoon? Poor Elend, what did he get himself roped into?
Things got a little cray on the honeymoon and now you’re expecting a baby! With the next coordinates find your next book and flip the page to the page number you were given. The first name you find will be the name of your first born child!
Book: The Fellowship of the Ring
With a book like The Fellowship I was really hoping I would get like, Legolas or Gandalf, but I got Gimli. My son is freaking GIMLI. I can’t even imagine Gimli as a child.
We’re time jumping 5 years & your child is desperately begging for a pet! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first creature you come across will be your pet! If you don’t find a creature, then the first object you find will have to be used as a pet replacement.
Book: Bloody Rose
There unfortunately was no mention of Owlbears on this page, so poor little Gimli has a lute as a pet. Does Gimli even know how to play a lute? Does he care? What sort of parents are we??
Your child is going to school! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, using words on that page create the name of their school.
Book: These Rebel Waves
The first words that I see that could make any sort of sense on this page are Rehabilitation Council. That honestly doesn’t really sound like the school I would want to go to OR send my child there, but here we are. I’m imagining Miss Trunchbull as the headmaster or something.
You decide you’re going to start a YT channel for a side hobby! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & find something on that page that will be the core topic of your channel.
Health concerns. Apparently living in Merit has opened my eyes to a lot of health concerns, so much so that I decided that I needed to tell everyone about it. I’m probably not a very popular person. I’m also considering this question to be about a blog and not a youtube channel since…I don’t use my channel anymore.
Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & using words from that page create a YT channel name.
Book:Dance of Thieves
I saw first sweat, gag, and hell. SO I guess my channel/blog is Sweaty Gag of Hell! Sounds like a legit name for a health concerns blogger. I’m DEFINITELY not a popular blogger with this name!
Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first piece of dialogue you see is how you’ll greet your viewers each time you start a video.
Book: The Descendant of the Crane
“You suspected something all along, didn’t you?” Maybe I’m just kidding and I’m not actually talking about health concerns! Or maybe all my viewers suspected I’m crazy, or that I have superpowers or something.
You’ve decided to write a book! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & using words from that page create a book title.
Book: Three Dark Crowns
Greavesdrake: The Drafty Glass Sided Cage
I’m imagining this as a horror novel about an old haunted house that traps it’s victims. But I may need a ghost writer for it because I’m awful at coming up with plots and things. But it would have an awful and cheesy cover design, just because.
Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first line you see will be the opening line for your book.
Book: Anna Dressed in Blood
“We’re experts at this.” Soooo there’s some sort of ghost hunter/detective team like Zak Bagans from Ghost Adventures and they’re going into this haunted house all confident, but then PLOT TWIST. The house traps them! Well, I guess it wouldn’t be a plot twist if its in the description of the book….see how bad at this I am??
PLOT TWIST! The reason you even created a new identity for yourself is because a killer was after you! Now that you’re a mega famous author & youtuber, they’ve tracked you down again & they’re coming for you! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first character you see will be your killer!
Okay so my killer is Rielle, and I’m not sure how to feel about that. I wish it was someone a little more….badass. I guess you win some, you lose some, but being struck down by the sun queen makes me sound like some sort of villain if the sun queen is meant to save the world. Maybe that’s why my intro is “You suspected something all along, didn’t you?”
One day you’re setting up to film a YT video when you’re suddenly struck by the killer! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first object you come across is what they used to kill you.
Book:The Traitor Baru Cormorant
Of course the first object I see is carriage. Rielle doesn’t even want to use her magical powers to kill me I’m not even worth it! Just run her over with a carriage, it’s fine. Where was Gimli when all of this was happening and why doesn’t he save his mother???
Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first line you see will go on your tombstone.
“She wasn’t some Bright Lady.” Hmmmm is this not only how my life ends, but also a spoiler for Furyborn? Maybe Rielle isn’t the sun queen and is actually the blood queen! And maybe this whole time I was actually a good guy in the wrong place at the wrong time! DUN DUN DUUUUUUN!
Okay so I may not be the best storyteller, but that’s why I’m not an author nor do I plan on ever writing a book so there ya go. I’ll leave that to the people who are actually good at it! Have you done this challenge yet? I would love to see your responses because this is just so much fun!
