Follow Friday (#16)

Follow Friday is a fun way for bloggers to find new blogger friends!  It's hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View, and it's such an awesome idea!  
Our Feature this week is...
And our question...
"ACK! Your Favorite Book/Movie Character (Example Hermione Granger Played By The Emma Chick) Just Walked Into The Room! Who Is It And What Would Be Your First Reaction? You Get Extra Points If You Include Visual Stimulation."
Hmm, good question.  I honestly dread to think what I'd do...  Scream like an obsessed fan-girl... blush and stutter and trip over my own feet... or worse yet: faint.  I guess it all really depends on the character.  So, to help you all know how obsessed with my book/movie characters, here is a list with detailed reactions and pictures.  Enjoy!
  •  Jasper Hale played by Jackson Rathbone from The Twilight Saga.  From the first time I read the book to when I first saw the film, I fell in love with Jasper/Jackson. So my reaction to him walking in would be fairly dramatic.  A squeal, then running to him (almost tripping over my own - or worse, someone else's - feet in the process) and beg for him to change me into a vampire.  Then, I'd blush, and propaby would have scared poor Jasper/Jackson to death.... I never said my reactions would be graceful or logical.  Or sensible.
  • Jace Wayland played by Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments.  This is being made into a film.  *jumps up and down like a mad thing*  I'm rather excited.  Even though Jamie wasn't my first choice, a picture changed my mind.  I edited said picture, to make it look like Shadowhunter clothing.  I hope you like.  Now, as to my reaction to Jace/Jamie....  Again, scream, maybe jump up and down a little, trip, then beg for (even more embarassing...) a snarky Jace quote.  God.  I sound like such an idiot.  One of these will end sensibly... I hope.  Um...  Maybe.
  • Alice Cullen played by Ashley Greene from The Twilight Saga.  I love mad, pixie-like, little Alice.  So, if I ran into Alice/Ashley, I'd grin - a lot - look all shy, walk over and stammer something incoherent.  I'd blush, stare at the ground, and mumble.  Ah, so mature.
  • Luna Lovegood played by Evanna Lynch from Harry Potter.  She's so wonderfully insane!  Me and her would get on like a house on fire.  It's a too-often-used joke in my family that I'm a mix between Luna and Hermione.  Insanely clever.  With no common sense.  And a habit of talking nonsense.  So, if me and Luna/Evanna bumped into one another, I'd tilt my head and ask, "Did you see the pigeon?  I think it's a boy.  He walks with a boys' swagger".  And Luna/Evanna would squint at me, radish earrings swinging and say, "Your head is full of nargles, you know."  And I would smile and nod, "Yes, they seem to like it in there."  "That's very nice."  "Isn't it just?"  And on we would go, talking complete and utter nonsense.
I'm sure I could go on.  And mention numerous other book/movie characters, including Katniss, Peeta, Clary, Hermione, Simon, Edward, Rose...  The list would go on and on.  But I will stop before I bore you all to death.  But, hey, no fainting!

Well, that's my list of complete randomness.  Hope it made you laugh. 
If you found me through FF, drop me a link so I can follow back!  If not, what would you do if you met your fave book/movie star.  :D

Ooh, and before you go, check out my Fortnight of Guests, which includes our lovely host, Rachel from Parajunkee!  Keep your eye out, 'cause we have so awesome guest posts coming up!  :)
