TTT | Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had

Posted March 2, 2021 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in top ten tuesday / 7 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

Today’s topic is characters jobs I wish I had or ones I wish I could have because of the people/coworkers. I’m doing a mix of both, and I did cheat a bit by including a show/movie (technically, the movie(s) are also comics).

  1. Camp Half-Blood Director or Assistant Director….maybe even an archery teacher. I guess I’d have to learn archery for that but details, details. I think it would just be fun to help demi-god children and also be super snarky to Dionysus.
  2. Head of an Institute, specifically London’s cause I want to live anywhere but America right now. Also, I definitely want to hang out with Jem, Charlotte, Will, Tessa and the rest of the characters.
  3. Crew member on the Wayfarer. I recently finished reading A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, and I never wanted it to end for the fact that I absolutely loved all the characters.
  4. Okay, I was trying not to include a Harry Potter reference for once, but I can’t seem to hold back. I’d really love to be a librarian in the magical world. Yes, I know that’s what I’m going for now, but I really want to know about their system and how things works and what happens and their library science programs and all the things!
  5. A superhero or a superhero manager. I just really want to be friends with the Avengers!
  6. A spy in the resistance, and this can be taken from any of the many World War II novels I’ve read.
  7. A teacher at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. What can I say? Teaching girls to be spies sounds just perfect for this modern day feminist!
  8. Librarian at the Cemetery of Forgotten Books. I mean this one is kind of obvious for someone like you.
  9. A doctor of forensic medicine a la Audrey Rose Wadsworth from Stalking Jack the Ripper. I could totally see us being friends, plus I’m all about mysteries. (Side note: I was planning on being a medical examiner. However, you have to go through med school, and I faint at the sight of blood. Dead people? No problem! Alive? I’m outta there!).
  10. A Companion to the Doctor, specifically Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor. I would also take Peter Capaldi’s Doctor as well. Either way I want all of time and space to explore!

Happy Reading Darlings!

    You thought of a lot of examples. I went off the board this week because I couldn’t remember anyone’s professions except for the teachers and since I’m one that wasn’t fun. Check out my off the board list please. Thanks you. My TTT

  2. I love your list — I ended up picking jobs I’m not even sure I’d be good at, but they sounded interesting or dramatic. I love that you focused on the co-workers — I should have considered that in my list!
