Top Ten: Characters I’d Switch Places With

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was characters I’d switch places with – which, just so you know, was really hard! I mostly ended up deciding that these characters had a not-so-difficult arc, existed in a world I found tolerable, and whose end justified the means. Onward!
