Why You Should Resurrect Your Favorite Characters

Posted October 28, 2018 by Sophia

why resurrect favorite charactersWith only a few days until Halloween, you recently encountered something new and mind-blowing. Perhaps your favorite characters are cursed, but you don’t need to worry anymore after this encounter.

You have been offered a proposition.

Going about your day casually, you are approached by a friendly, yet ominous lady. She somehow finds out you are an avid bookworm and you feel you have been wronged with the death of your favorite characters. For a price, she offers you the ability to resurrect your favorite characters… but you can only do it on Halloween night.

Should you accept this offer and resurrect your favorite characters, despite the price?

You’ve heard the stories of accepting such an offer. But you’re tempted…

You go on a search for answers, wanting to be sure the consequences, whatever it may be, will be well worth it. In your search, you notice a fellow bookwyrm who has accepted the lady’s offer and surprisingly to you, survived. You decide to reach out to them for more information and here is what they tell you.

They deserve a second chance!

Perhaps you feel they made a small mistake they could learn from with their original death. If they learn from their mistake the first time, they’ll avoid it the second time, right?

You want more time with them.

They never got enough page time in the first place.

You believe Earth is better than their world (at least for them).

They come from a dangerous world where they had to risk their lives daily to save the world from a greater evil. Earth won’t necessarily need saving, at least not at the moment. It’s the perfect time for them to relax and live life.

You’ll be friends with them automatically.

Upon being resurrected, they’re going to be looking to you to be their guide through this new world. You’ll have a friend with you 24/7, even when the ones you care about are unable to be there for you because of adulting.


Simply put, they did not deserve this unfortunate kiss with death. They deserve so much better and you’re going to go fix that. I mean, how dare authors torture these wonderful beans. The first step to second chance is a resurrection.

Your informant can’t give you further information.

You want more about the process, but suddenly, they remember they have a meeting to get to – they’re going to be late if they stay! They don’t give you any other ways of contact and don’t respond to any emails you send them with more questions. It’s almost as though they never existed in the first place…

This leaves you with one question to answer: will you take the offer?

The lady awaits your answer.

Let’s talk, bookwyrms! Would you resurrect a character? Who would you resurrect? Who would you not resurrect?

Your prompt for Blogoween is about resurrection. 😈

  1. […] Today is day 5 of blogoween, and the original prompter today is “I Summon Thee!”, Anything to do with resurrection – characters you wouldn’t resurrect, characters you would resurrect, etc. But since Sundays are my review days, I thought I would do a review of a recent book I read that is definitely Halloween themed.  The host for today is once again Soph over at Bookwyrming Thoughts […]

  2. First of all that image for this post is amazingsauce. Love it!! And as for whether I’d do it… well the unseen consequences part worries me, so I’m gonna say… no? Which is probably not the fun answer haha, but that lady is kinda worrying me lol…

    Great post!

  3. Lol, I’m too stuck in the real-world universe I guess. I mean, think of the terrible consequences if we mess with nature? What kinds of horrible things would happen? Who would die in order for my favorite character to live? Nope, I’ll keep death in balance, thanks. 🙂

  4. Loveeee this prompt Soph! And I dunno if I’d resurrect any characters, like for my own emotional attachment yes. Yet they died for varying reasons, so like…their death caused something to happen in the book/series.

  5. Would they have all their powers and everything in our world? I feel like they would be super depressed here if they have to live normal mundane lives after what they used to live in?

    • They’ll have their powers, but since they died and then got resurrected, their powers are only going to be a percentage of what they used to be.
