I found this topic extremely difficult. I didn’t think I would, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the recent penchant for serializing everything (even when it doesn’t need it) means I know pretty much everything I need to know about most characters, or there are books to come that will satisfy my desire to revisit, or there are more books and I haven’t cared enough seek them out. Honestly, sometimes, I just like to make up the rest of the story in my head.
But, here are the list of characters I found intriguing enough that I want to know what happened after their final pages in their respective novels. Several of these are couples/pairs.
Luna and Neville – Harry Potter
Did they fall for one another? Become good friends? Go their separate ways and become rad pillars of the wizarding community? I like to think they’re raising fiercely independent children together. Basically, I’d like to know about most of the secondary characters. Seamus and Dean. Cho. The twins.
Astrid and Diana – The Gone Series
It now occurs to me that I can’t remember if Diana survived this series. I think I need to re-read it. But these were two cool chicks. I’d like to know what became of them as adults after their experience in the dome.
Rob/Adam – In the Woods
Where did he go? Is he still a cop? Did he ever remember what happened in the woods? Which identity is he going by now?
Nick and Amy – Gone Girl
Come on, how can you not want to know what came of this nightmare of a relationship? And their kid?
Wanderer – The Host
I guess this is more of an overall for her species. Did they stay? If they did, what does she do when her host body dies? And when Ian dies?
Jacob Green – The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green
When last we saw him, he was a teenager. What kind of adult does he become? Does he continue to practice Judaism or give it up because of his father?
Clay Jannon – Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore
This book was fun. I want to go on another adventure with Clay.
Both Will Graysons – Will Grayson/Will Grayson
Again, they were teenagers in the book. Just starting to get their shit together. I’d like to see how they are as friends and as adults. Do they develop a relationship because of their name kinship?
Chloe and Derek – Darkest Powers Trilogy
A teen necromancer with a surly teenage werewolf? That’s just got fun times written all over it.
Poppet and Widget – The Night Circus
They’re ethereal and playful and delightful. I want to spend more time in their story. In their tents.
What about you? Who do you want to revisit?
