Spring 2014 YA Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to the Spring 2014 YA Scavenger Hunt!



Hi there! I'm C.J. Redwine, your host for this leg of the hunt. 


I love long walks on the beach, going to the movie theater, and writing epic fantasy novels wherein I put my characters in the worst possible situations and then sit back and eat cookies while they struggle to survive. If my writing career ever tanks, I'll put on my black cape and be a super hero instead.




On this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each participating YA author, you also get a secret number. Add up the numbers, and  enter it for a chance to win a major prize--one lucky winner will receive at least one signed book from each author on my team in the hunt! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online until noon PST on Sunday, April 6th!

You can start right here, or you can also go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or both! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM--but there is also a red team and if you do the red hunt too you'll have a chance to win a whole different set of signed books!




If you'd like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, see the full list of prizes up for grabs, or if you get lost along the way, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage. 

Looking for my exclusive bonus content? You'll have to keep searching. Somewhere on this blog hop, I've hidden a poem Rachel wrote to Logan right after he was declared her Protector. Before you go on though, check out the amazing author I'm hosting. But, first, a few rules.

RULES

Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!). Hint: the secret number is  in BLUE. 

Entry Form: Once you've added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

Rules: Open internationally. Anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian's permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by April 6th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.

Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, I'll introduce the author I am hosting on this hunt. 

I am super excited to be hosting...


Amy Christine Parker


Amy's bio:

AMY CHRISTINE PARKER writes full-time from her home near Tampa, Florida, where she lives with her husband, their two daughters, and one ridiculously fat cat. Visit her at amychristineparker.com and follow her on Twitter @amychristinepar.


The book Amy's bonus material comes from is ASTRAY, book 2 in the GATED series! (Look at that cover! I totally want this book!)


Here's what the book is all about:

Lyla is caught between two worlds. The isolated Community that she grew up in and the outside world that she’s navigating for the very first time. The outsiders call the Community a cult, but Pioneer miraculously survived a shooting that should have killed him. Are the faithful members right to stay true to his message? Is this just a test of faith? One thing is for sure: the Community will do anything to bring Lyla back to the fold. Trapped in a spider’s web of deception, will Lyla detect the sticky threads tightening around her before it’s too late? She’ll have to unravel the mystery of what Pioneer and the Community are truly up to if she wants to survive.

To start at the beginning of the series, check out Amy's books here.  Chilling and fabulous ... you won't regret it! Here's a peek at GATED, book one in the series:





A fast-paced, nerve-fraying contemporary thriller that questions loyalties and twists truths. 
Appearances can be deceiving.
 Lyla Hamilton is a loyal member of the Community. Her family was happy to be chosen by Pioneer to join such an lovely gated neighborhood. Here, life seems perfect.
But after meeting Cody, an outsider boy, Lyla starts questioning Pioneer, her friends, her family--everything. And if there's one thing not allowed in the Community, it's doubt. As Pioneer cleverly manipulates his flock toward disaster, the real question is: Will Lyla follow her heart or follow Pioneer over the edge?
From the outside looking in, it's hard to understand why anyone would join a cult. But Gated tells the story from the inside looking out, and from behind the gates things are not quite so simple. Amy Christine Parker's beautiful writing creates a chilling, utterly unique YA story. Perfect for fans of creepy thrillers and contemporary fiction alike.

Besides the fact that we're both writers, Amy and I have one other thing in common. We both have extremely fat cats. I don't know how fat Amy's cat it, but I'd be willing to bet my best pair of Iron Fist stilettos that my cat weighs at least 5 lbs more. He is one faaaat cat. You can learn more about Amy (and her fat cat) at her website.

Now, let's get to the epic bonus content Amy provided for the hunt! 

Are you ready?

Are you sure???

Here we go! Amy is giving us a sneak peek at the first chapter of ASTRAY, which doesn't hit the shelves until 8/26/14! I'm super excited to read it!

Warning: if you haven't read GATED yet, there are spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk.

CHAPTER ONE

I tug on a pair of Cody’s jeans and his baggiest sweatshirt. Pulling my hair into a tight bun and covering it with one of his baseball caps, I check the mirror one last time and try to find some speck of courage in my expression, but my face is all pale terror.

Can I really do this?

I try a few guy-like slouches. With any luck, once Cody finishes giving me a fake beard and I cover my too shapely body, I’ll be believable enough as a guy to fool Pioneer, the Sheriff, and anyone else we run into. I don’t want anyone other than Cody to know that I’m there. I’m not sure I can face Pioneer otherwise.

I hurry out of the bathroom. Cody looks at me and smiles. I have to look away because I’m unnerved enough right now. I can’t deal with the circus that happens in my stomach whenever he looks at me like that.

“Not bad. You’re not dude-like just yet, but we’ll fix that.” He grabs my hand and pulls me downstairs and then into the basement. We tiptoe to the far corner where Cody keeps all of his monster projects and make up tools. He pulls over a metal stool and I perch on it. My hands land in my lap and I rub my thumbs across my jeans. I breathe in and out.

“Ready?” Cody’s all shiny eyed and eager. I’ve just given him a way to practice what he loves. I’m his personal special effects project this morning. Oh who am I kidding? I’m his personal project in a lot of ways. He doesn’t seem to mind, but it’s bothering me more and more. Who wants to be the most broken person in the room all the time? That’s why I’m going to the hospital today, to start repairing the damage that Pioneer did to me. Seeing him again is the first step.

“Yeah,” I say. I watch as he picks up what looks like a tube made out of dark brown hair and unrolls it. He holds it up to my face and compares it to my real hair color.

“Close enough.” He’s not really talking to me as much as himself. He cuts off a few inches of the hair and fans it out between his fingers before laying it across the table beside me. I glance down at the Wolfman head he’s been working on and the severed limbs beyond it. It’s realistic enough that most people would probably get grossed out just looking at it, but I don’t. Once you’ve seen real blood and gore the fake stuff isn’t all that believable, no matter how good it is.

Cody leans over and grabs the TV remote off of the table. “This’ll go faster if you watch something,” he says as he turns on the TV and hands me the remote. I’m pretty sure that he’s not worried about me being bored. He’s trying to get me to stop thinking about Pioneer. The only problem is that ever since I left Mandrodage Meadows, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about him. When I close my eyes he’s there. I’m back in the stable reliving the moment right after I shot him. I see the blood blooming across his dingy white shirt all over again. Sometimes I think I can even catch the coppery scent of his blood in the air. And the blood of my best friend, Marie. Pioneer slit her throat so he could “send her to be with the Brethren in a better place”. There isn’t a TV show that can compete with those memories. Still, I scan through the channels.

Suddenly, like my thoughts conjured him up, Pioneer’s face fills up the screen. It feels like my heart freezes up. He’s staring right at me. I turn up the volume.

“Alan Cross, who now calls himself Pioneer, along with his followers spent the last ten years isolated in an apocalyptic compound.”

Cody grabs the remote out of my lap—I must’ve dropped it, but I don’t remember it falling. “That’s enough of . . . ”

“No, wait! I . . . I need to see this,” I say even though part of me wants to cover my ears and squeeze my eyes shut. If I can’t deal with seeing Pioneer on a television screen how can I expect to do it in person?

Pioneer’s face fades and a new image of the hospital flashes across the screen. Gathered on the sidewalk just outside the entrance are my friends. They’re huddled together on their knees, their hands upturned towards the sky—every one of them in the exact same position. They smile at the camera. The look on their faces . . . it’s eerie how happy they seem. My stomach roils and I have to swallow to keep from gagging.

“ . . . his followers say that they will continue to show up at the hospital until Pioneer is released.”

Julie’s face fills up the screen. She grins widely at the camera. “He’s alive! Pioneer should’ve died, but he didn’t.” She looks over at Mr. Brown who is standing nearby and he beams at her.

The man holding the microphone gestures to the way she’s sitting. “You’re all kneeling. Why?”

Julie laughs, a high pitched tinkly one that sounds nothing like the laugh she does whenever she finds something truly funny. I hate it. “We kneel because we want to show Pioneer our obedience and renewed faith.”

The interviewer tries to look serious, but he’s having a hard time.

Julie looks at him and her mouth twists. Her grin turns into a smirk. “You’ll remember this moment—when you refused to see the miracle of his survival. On earth’s last day you won’t be mocking us anymore. You’ll know he was right—that you’re gonna die.”

“Totally deluded, the idiot,” Cody shakes his head angrily and taps hair onto my chin. I don’t look at him, because I don’t know what to say. I believed in Pioneer once . . . does that make me an idiot too? I bite my lip and try to focus on the screen so I won’t cry.

“ . . . they have begun to share their message publicly on YouTube through taped sermons Pioneer gave in the last ten years.”

Footage of Pioneer standing in front of our old clubhouse pops up. I suck in a breath. I can see myself in the background. This past me smiles as Pioneer walks towards her and holds out his hand. I watch as she leans her cheek into his palm. My heart starts to hurt. Even though I don’t want to, part of me misses that girl and her belief. I haven’t felt sure about anything at all since I left the Community. My mouth tastes sour and I look away, up at Cody. Has he spotted the old me?

“The end is coming isn’t it?” I watch as my parents, my friends and past me nod and clap.

Cody lets out a disgusted sigh and I stand up and lunge over the table to hit the TV’s power button, getting beard hair stuck to my shirt in the process. I slam back into my seat and hold my head in my hands. I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that past me was nodding right along with everyone else . . . or the fact that present me still has an inexplicable urge to. My brain feels like it’s split in half and past me and present me haven’t decided who’s in charge yet. Maybe seeing Pioneer today is a mistake. Maybe it’ll tip the balance in past me’s favor. I start to shake, I can’t help it. I am suddenly overcome by nerves.

“We don’t have to do this, you know. I could go by myself and tell you all about it afterwards.” Cody studies my face. He touches my cheek with his fingertips. They’re warm. I move away almost by reflex. It isn’t because I don’t want him to touch me. Pioneer always told us to steer clear of Outsiders and my body still hasn’t figured out how to make disobeying him a regular habit. I guess this means that past me still has the upper hand. It makes me want to punch something.

If my recoiling from his touch bothers Cody, he doesn’t show it. Instead he picks up more hair and starts filling in my beard.

I don’t know if I should apologize or just ignore what’s just happened. After a moment of silence I choose ignoring. “I need to see him. Make sure.” I don’t finish this sentence. I’ll just sound weird. After I shot him twice in the chest, almost exactly in the heart, I was sure he would die, but he didn’t—even after lots of complications. I can’t seem to stop myself from wondering if maybe he really is what he says he is. How else could he have survived it all? If I can’t see Pioneer as a man I’ll never get rid of the part of me who still wants to believe in him.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The best way to fight a villain with an army and dragons is with a magic sword!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. You know, as cheesy as it is, the One ring would be great to sneak up roguishly on the villains and take them out one at a time. The side effects of using the Ring would, of course, make it that much more of a challenge... but challenges are good!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I was going to say a sword but after all magic is the best weapon I could use, so that's what I'd choose.

    ReplyDelete

  18. I am going to go simple on this and say sword! I would be that epic to defeat an army and dragon with just a sword!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think the weapon I would choose is an invisibility cloak so I could hide from those assassins while I attempt to beat them. Or so I could run away without being seen (mostly that).

    ReplyDelete
  20. i would use a sword and an invisible ring/cape as that way you can kill the enemy without them knowing where you are!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I might go old school and choose a sword. I've done some stage combat, so I wouldn't be completely clueless. Plus, if I slay a mighty beast with a sword, maybe I'll finally get some street cred. (Or have a really cool obituary written about me.)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks for the giveaway! My weapon would be the ability to fly and a samurai sword. <3

  29. I would use a magic Katana. Because....magic!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Going to go with bow and arrows, as, well, it's the only weapon I know how to actually use and it doesn't frighten me, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  37. If I was the heroine of a novel, I would love to have Dexter Morgan, Mara Jade, Katniss Everdeen and Dumbledore fighting on my side! So, my favorite TV and literary heroes/heroines! :-)
    -Jules

    ReplyDelete
  38. My wit...? No. Then it'd probably be a bow. BUT, I'd have to be as good as Legolas to actually wield the bow. Otherwise, I'd have to choose a sword.

    **Rachelle**

    ReplyDelete
  39. A rocket launcher

    ReplyDelete
  40. A heat resistant suit of armour, preferably. lol Though I'm a big scaredy cat and would probably run away. Oh, maybe one of those special bells they use in Gringotts in Harry Potter would help keep the dragon away!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My weapon of choice would be a wizard from Harry Potter, that way I can do bad ass magic tricks! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Probably to have Bilbo Baggins and Bard the Bowman by my side. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would look around to see if I could find anything for constructing a rudimentary lathe.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would use whatever I could find laying around cause I wouldn't be prepared :). Thanks for the giveaway Natasha

    ReplyDelete
  47. Shuriken (throwing stars). And lots of them because I would prefer to fight from afar :-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Invisibilty, I am not a coward, but being invisible to my attackers would really be a good advantage:P Thanks for participating in the hunt!:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would try to find a way to have a bow and arrows so i could take out the villain and the assassins from afar and then a sword to be able and penetrate the leather skin on the dragon

    ReplyDelete
  50. All these new books and new authors! I can't wait to start liking more stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would use my brain as my weapon of choice. Quick thinking can sometimes do more than weapons.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hmmm... super speed :) Take them down without even knowing that I’m there :P Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Magic... so I could just turn them into kittens... who doesn't love cute litle kittens? lol

    BTW, I just watched that episode of Supernatural again tonight. I don't think Batman flung remotes, Dean!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  58. I would want a magical bow and arrow, that never misses it target. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. A sword would be my weapon of choice <3

    ReplyDelete
  60. A wand is always my weapon of choice. And then I'm gonna shout AVADA KEDAVRA! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love your blog. I would say my weapon of choice would have to be a magic sword.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Mine would be invincibility then I could just walk up to them and kill them. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  63. A staff. If you've read The Staff and the Sword series by Patrick W. Carr you'll understand why it's such a kick-butt, awesome weapon! Plus it makes you look super cool. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  64. hm... since I cant run away, an invisibility cloak.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think magic powers would be the best defense! Control over water or ice would be preferable to combat the dragon and then you could use a tsunami or a flurry of sharp icicles on the assassins.

    ReplyDelete
  66. It would have to be magic LOL - how about Harry's Invisibility Cloak! :) I think that's my only way to win!

    ReplyDelete
  67. My weapon would be something like Captain America's shield lol

    ReplyDelete
  68. Considering I don't know how to use any weapons - although learning how to use a sword or a bow would be awesome! - I'd go with something like a wand. Learning spells should be easy right?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh, I'd love to have some kind of mage like powers where you can control the elements. That'd be super sweet! :D

    ReplyDelete
  70. From reading so many amazing books I've learned not all weapons are daggers or swords and I've leaned towards the mind powers, technolgy, magic, and incredible things that could incapacitate a grown man within seconds, I since dont have Logan's or Rachel's marvelous combat skills I would like a mix of the touch of death/excruciating pain and the ability to transport it anywhere I need it to be (with my mind) (BRAINS!) within a reasonable distance.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hmm. I'd want someone on the inside that could do the real dirty work for me. (And this is why I'm *not* a heroine in a fantasy novel in real life ^_^ )

    ReplyDelete
  72. I would love to ALSO have a dragon who could totally defeat the other one, AND everyone else. Dragons are cool. :D

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hmmm.... I'd go with a crossbow. (:

    ReplyDelete
  74. A small sword, since the number of enemies is big I get tired faster with a normal sword ;]

    ReplyDelete
  75. Gated was so good and I can't wait for Astray - and I LOVE the new covers!

    Anyway, I would want to have the shield that Percy Jackson has - otherwise there would be nothing to protect yourself from the fire breathing dragon or the army! Thanks for the giveaway - I have all the books except Deliverance so I would LOVE to win this!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. My weapon of choice would be bombs. Big or small. Bombs can kill dragons, right? :D Thank you so so much for this amazing giveaway. <3 *Fingers crossed* :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Can't wait for Astray!
    I think my weapon of choice would be a bigger dragon. Does that count? LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  78. CJ THIS IS FABULOUS! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I would probably choose some sort of gun that shoots a gas that is noxious/toxic and kills everyone that inhales it. But then I would need a mask for myself. So I'd have to create that as well. But yeah :D

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  79. The Elder Wand from Harry Potter =)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Ninja's and a water spewing turtle :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. My weapon ? Well, the dragon is actually my pet, the assassins group is just not aware of it. So really, there's need to worry !
    Morgane F.

    ReplyDelete
  82. My weapon would be the ability to turn anything into candy so no problems I would just go "bam now you're candy" and I would have dragon and assassin shaped candy to eat.

    ReplyDelete
  83. My weapon would be a really intimidating twin swords. I love the way it looks (or at least how i envision) when a character pulls the swords from behind their back. Its badass.

    ReplyDelete
  84. My weapon would be an endless supply of throwing knives cause I think they're awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  85. My weapon would be a bow and arrow. I've always wanted to learn! Thanks for this amazing contest!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. My weapon of choice is Magic (or is that cheating?)

    ReplyDelete
  87. My weapon would be mind control so that i could turn the dragon on the army!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I would choose a wand. Although that wouldn't be very helpful unless I knew the spells. Or maybe the Iron Man suit...Does that count as a weapon? xD

    ReplyDelete
  89. My weapon of choice would be dragon (or isn't that a weapon?)

    ReplyDelete
  90. This is a tough question! My weapon of choice would be a flute that would make everyone go to sleep, including the dragon.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Ummm...Can I pull a Doctor and use a Sonic Screwdriver??

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  92. My weapon would be a sword!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would want to become a wizard and have a wand

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would want my own fire breathing dragon on my side!

    ReplyDelete
  95. My awesomeness would kill them all. I'd just make a pose and then light would start pouring out of me and everyone would die.

    ReplyDelete
  96. The classic shield and sword because I would need a shield to protect myself from the fire-breathing dragon and army and a sword to slay the dragon and my enemies with.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Weapon of choice - invisibility cloak

    ReplyDelete
  98. That's a really hard question, but maybe an invisibility cloak? If they can't see you they can't attack, right?

    ReplyDelete
  99. If I was facing a villain that had an army and a dragon at his disposal, I think one, I would need courage, but most importantly, my weapon of choice would be some kind of magical gem. Something that cast light out. It's a distraction. I wouldn't flee. I'd fight.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm thinking an invisibility cloak. They could be the best assassins in the world, but if they couldn't see me, they'd be useless! That way I could stay and fight them as an invisible force. And maybe *shamefully drops head* run and hide if things got too dangerous... :P

    ReplyDelete
  101. Waterbombs would probably be helpful in this instance... and the enemy wouldn't see it coming, right? (:

    ReplyDelete
  102. I'd use an extra strong taser that'd work 24/7. Or simply magic.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Either a bow or magic. So I could stay far, far away from my enemies(and be able to attack the dragon) :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. I would use a magical whip :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'd love how to use a sword, but magic is my first choice!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Yay!! Thanks for participating in the YA Scavenger Hunt and for the Bonus giveaway!:)

    1. Oops forgot to say that my weapon of choice would be Stitch from Lilo and Stitch:)

      Delete
  107. My weapon of choice would be magic. Assassins and a dragon are a deadly combination and I would rather have some distance from them.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Uhh...an army of super heroes? Yeah, I think I'll go with that.

  109. A super-duper magic weapon that changes in each situation in order to do the most damage. (or least damage or whatever you want really)

    ReplyDelete
  110. A shield which have spikes on the front and gives of a powerfield that nothing can break through, not magic nor arrows ^^

    ReplyDelete
  111. I would love to have power of Invisibility at such times :D

    ReplyDelete
  112. I'd have Dany from A Song of Ice and Fire fight for me. She'd know how to handle dragons!

    ReplyDelete
  113. My weapon of choice would be a shield and an amazing sword!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Great question! I think I would use a bow and arrows.. but perhaps having a sword and a shield would be nice. :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. My superly awesome magical powers?? Lol. Maybe a sword or a crossbow! That would be cool... if only I knew how to use them ;)

    ReplyDelete
  116. Um, a smokin' hot immortal wizard/warrior, because at least I'd have something nice to look at if we were defeated and because, well, I'm kinda banking on that whole immortal thing. :-P

    ReplyDelete
  117. Another dragon. If that's not possible then Excalibur, or Aslan, and/or the shield Prince Phillip has that protected him from Maleficent. If at all possible I would take all the above

    ReplyDelete
  118. I would choose super strength.

    ReplyDelete
  119. My weapon of choice is guns but because of the situation I think it would be interesting to use a sword.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Weapon of Choice = A MIRACLE! =D

    ReplyDelete
  121. Magical Steel Fans that can ward against magic and invulnerable to all types of fire. ;) Like those used in Mortal Kombat by Kitana.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Speed. RUN RUN RUN!!!!!! I would not want to meet up with the Khaleesi & her Dragons & Unsullied/Second Sons with any weapon.

    ReplyDelete
  123. A bow and arrow because whenever I imagine myself in fantasy novels I always see myself with a bow and arrow.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Is a hot guy trained in fighting a weapon? Actually a wand would be even more cool because that would mean I'm a witch! Thank you for the bonus giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  125. I would choose the sword Dhakki from the anime Inuyasha. Otherwise i would choose to be a firebender :).

    ReplyDelete
  126. I think my weapon of choice would be magic throwing stars!!!

    ReplyDelete
  127. A missile Launcher is my best bet!

    ReplyDelete
  128. The ability to freeze objects/people

    ReplyDelete
  129. I think I would have to say immunity to fire/heat! Thanks for the extra giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Aang from Avatar the Last Airbender to be by my side.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Hmm.. I would say a cloak to make me invisible and my own fire breathing dragon! Or perhaps an ice dragon to freeze everything? :)

    ReplyDelete
  132. Power over the elements. That way and I freeze the fire, and prevent it!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Definitely magic and spells, that way, I can protect myself and harm them at the same time!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I would want one of those hoses they use on fire trucks so I could put out the dragon's fires and then blast away all the evil people!
    Thanks for participating in YASH and also for hosting this awesome giveaway!

  135. (Zairah Divino)
    I'd probably go for bow and arrows ;)

    ReplyDelete
  136. some kind of sword that turns things to ice when struck

    ReplyDelete
  137. Some kind of loyal huge indestructible dog c:

    ReplyDelete
  138. If my weapon could be a superpower, I'd go with invisibility because if they can't SEE me, they can't kill me. But if I have to go with a physical weapon, definitely a longbow. Also a lady dragon to distract the dragon on the other side. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  139. My weapon? A genie with an unlimited number of wishes! (Or the standard 3-wish genie.)

    ReplyDelete
  140. I would use a tactical nook ;)

    ReplyDelete
  141. My weapon would be an enchanted bow and arrow. Something about the bow and arrow is just so elegant, and my favourite heroines always use them :)

    ReplyDelete
  142. Magic Sword, and if the scabbard was also enchanted all the better.


    And is there any possible eay I be friends with the dragon so he doesn't eat me and I don't have to kill him? :D

    ReplyDelete
  143. Magic! So I could turn my army invisible; they wouldn't see it coming! ;)

  144. I would choice a sword as my weapon.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I'd love a katana! A magical one if possible...
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I think that against a dragon, I'd want a dragon of my own. And also a fire-proof suit.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I would choose Magic as my weapon of choice!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Oh my gosh I would pick magical beans that turned into whips because who would see that coming?! I just love Gakuen Alice haha :p

    ReplyDelete
  149. What about a magic sword or magic arrow? Is that allowed? 'cause it is, they should be afraid *muahahaha* <- that was supposed to be an evil laugh ;)
