This tag is a two in one tag. That means it is referencing both my love for books and musicals.
Wicked (favorite fictional friendship): This is difficult. I don’t think I have an ultimate favorite fictional friendship. Here are some of them: The Harry Potter Trio, Sam and Frodo, Merry and Pippin, Esther/Charley/Caddy- I love Esther’s friendship between these two.
Sweeney Todd (favorite villain): Due to not really being a fan of villains, it is hard to think of one. I really have no idea what makes a “good” villain. Some do creep me out like Voldemort- one of the most evil villains out there.
Phantom of the Opera (favorite love triangle): I don’t think I read many books with love triangle. There will be some overlap here: one of my favorite love triangle is in Les Misérables. It may be subtle in the book, but still love it. That is one of my unpopular opinions.
Lion King (favorite sidekick): Thinking of actual sidekicks isn’t easy. I do know that in some ways Marge acts as Sparkle’s sidekick. It is their friendship that led into other unlikely friendships.
Grease (least favorite ending)- I honestly don’t know.
Matilda: The Musical (favorite adaption of a book): this can be a bit tricky due to sometimes seeing the film or musical before the book.
Les Misérables (favorite death in a book): I feel like this can be interpreted differently. It is hard to know what exactly what it means by “favorite” death. It literally can be when a villain gets killed due to being excited they are gone. It also can refer to memorable and meaningful deaths. A lot of my favorite death scenes are meaningful and touching (SPOILERS): Smike in Nicholas Nickleby and Holland in Shades of Magic for instance. I didn’t get mad at the author for killing off Holland, a character I learned to like in the 3rd book, due to understanding the importance and meaningful nature of his death.
If you are both a musical theatre fan and a bookworm, I hope you try out this tag.
