RTW - All He Wants For Christmas...

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
What would be the ideal holiday present for your main character (or favorite character)? 

Seeing as I put him through hell in the story I'll choose Caleb from Beast Inside and find an ideal Christmas present to him.  And I got the best one for him.  Caleb's a sci-fi fan, very into fantasy and science fiction but not really much of a horror fan.  He'll watch them but he's a total wimp - everything horror he watches ends up scaring him senseless and his mind will run away when its silent and night.  Suddenly everything around him is a monster waiting to kill him.

So his favourite is sci-fi.  And he's not much of an outdoor person.  His socialising is spent inside on social networking sites and trying to get to reach level 90 on an RPG game with Joshua.  So something to take him away from the computer but not forcing him outside...

Any Doctor Who series would be perfect for him.  Classic or New Who.  It's fun, cheesy sci-fi with bad effects and insane explanations of time and space.  Everything is just timey-wimey and wibbly wobbly with an eccentric and danger magnet Doctor. 

It's fun and something to watch over the holidays.  One downside to the present - his tendency to procrastinate won't improve.  Can't see any work being done over the holidays with this in his possession.

  1. Good question. I'll have to think about this, especially as my next novel takes place in December.
