OK, We had a lot of fun with the choose-your-three-bodyguards post, so I propose a new one:
Choose your three deserted island companions. You can choose them on the basis of their to a rat-like ability to escape anything short of a lead-lined bunker, their scavenger skills, their ability to keep you company, I don’t care. Just give me a good explanation as to why you pick these three women and go for it. Also, once someone has said it, no doubleling.
Starbuck from the newest BsG series. Because she would just find a conveniently-located alien spaceship, reverse-engineer it, and fly us home.
Ellie Linton from John Marsden’s Tomorrow series. I know she started off with a lot of supplies and scavenged a lot of the invading army, but still, I’d want her on my side than against it.
Phryhne Fisher, from Kerry Greenwood’s titular series. Because she has escaped from just about anything else the Australian east coast has to offer, what’s a deserted island to her?
OK, that’s me, what do you reckon?
