I’ve been doing some brainstorming for some blog post ideas when I started thinking about what it would be like if fictional characters lived in the real world. Then I thought about my fangirling tendencies of shipping characters together.
I love shipping my OTPs and in real life that would mean dating. What better way to do that than online? I’ve never done online dating, but I can get a good idea of what people’s profiles look like. I just took the basic idea and put together a profile for each member of the Dregs in the Six of Crows series. I know that most of these characters already have a romantic partner, but I’d like to think they’d meet online if they were real.
(Notice: I know most of these characters are just teens, so think of these profiles as a part of a website meant for teenagers rather than adults.)
(Another notice: The artwork I used in this post aren’t mine. I made sure to link the artists’ websites to the picture as well as link it towards the bottom of this post.)
If this was the real world, I think Kaz would be the dark and broody type. Mysterious, ya know?
I feel like Inej would be the type of person who loves to do stunts but also loves to cuddle up in a blanket and spend the night reading.
Jesper would obviously be a huge flirt.
Nina would be the type of person who is just so nice that it makes you stop and appreciate it. People would be like wow… that girl is really nice and their faith in humanity would be restored.
Matthias would be that one friend in the group that doesn’t want to do anything risky and it’s really funny to force him out of his comfort zone.
Wylan would be the nerd in the group. He would be that person who looks average but when you talk to them, you’re blown away from how incredibly smart he is.
What is your opinion about online dating?
If you could have one character come to life, who would it be?
Which book/series should I make dating profiles for next?
Until next time….
