The Book Mash Up Tag
I was kind of tagged to do this one by Shanah the Bionic Bookworm. Not officially tagged. It almost seemed like she was daring me. Plus, it looked like a lot of fun. So here I go:
- Choose 10 or more book titles (you can also play with TV series, movies or basically anything that has a story and characters.
- Put them in a bowl/mug
- Take 2 of them and mash them up!
- You can take characters from one story and put them in the other, mix up he worlds, fuse the story lines, anything is okay as long as it contains elements from both stories!
- Write a (small) paragraph with the premise of your new mashed up story
- Go on until you’re out of titles
- Have fun!

The second rule of being a Crow, is you don’t get caught.
Red Rising / Hitchhiker’s Guide
Darrow’s battle against the social injustice of the worlds has come to a head on his home world of Mars. The battle is ruthless, and Darrow is battling in what seems will be his last fight. He’s penned down, outnumbered, and discouraged.

Cersei Lannister intends on ruling all of the Seven Kingdoms. Robert Baratheon was the first to fall. Then Ned Stark met his doom. On this side of the sea, the Dothraki just lost our Khal. I am Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of Dragons, and Cersei seeks to take my life next. I am number Four.
Harry Potter / Hex
(I promise I didn’t rig this one)
The students of Hogwarts School of Witch and Wizardry live in fear every single day. And they’ve been living that way for over 300 years. A witch, with her eyes and mouth sewn shut, wanders the halls going wherever she wants from the Great Hall to the Room of Requirement. Unnatural long-life, unable to escape, the curse is applied to anyone who comes to the school. The only hope anyone at Hogwarts has is their newest student, the boy who lived, Harry Potter. Can he find a was to break the curse and free them all from their lives as prisoners?
Ready Player One / Doctor Who
Everyone my age remembers where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the Man in the Box. I’d heard of The Doctor, of course. Everyone had. He was responsible for piloting the TARDIS, a massively bigger-on-the-inside time machine. That day, when the Doctor made himself known to us all, he issued a contest to the world in which the winner would travel through all of space and time with him.
Since I wasn’t actually tagged, I’m not going to tag anyone in return (though I’m really curious what kind of answers Ally Memes would come up with!)
