RTW -- Character FML

BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! We interrupt this regularly scheduled RTW for a special news bulletin! USA WON THEIR GAME AGAINST ALGERIA!!!!! (Yes, I realize I'm late. I was gone all morning, missed the game, and didn't find out about it I got back at four.) It was tied up 0-0 until the 91st minute when USA scored the incredible game-winning goal. Which means we won Group C and it's the first time we've won our group since 1930!!!!!!!!! *fireworks* We shall return now to our regularly scheduled programming.

I wasn't going to do this week's RTW. But then I read everyone's entries and then I started getting ideas and I couldn't not do it. So here I am.

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week's question:
If your favorite characters submitted to F My Life, what would they write?

****Advance Warning! My FML's are full of spoilers. (Sorry)
There's Deathly Hallows, City of Bones, City of Glass, 2012 (the movie), Princess Bride, and Gone (Lisa McMann). There will be pictures of the cover before each one. *****

Gordon:Today, I survived California falling into the sea, Yellowstone exploding, crash-landing a plane in what should have been the Pacific but was in fact the Himalayas where we were going (that was convenient), and sneaking into the multi-zillion dollar arks that the government's been secretly building only to be killed by the gears because we were too freaking impatient to wait outside and get in with everyone else. FML

Today, my true love's fiance killed me and then I woke unable to move a muscle (except apparently the ones from the throat up because I can still talk and whatnot) expected to storm a castle guarded by many men with only me and two other guys so that we could get inside and stop the wedding. FML

Harry Potter, Deathly Hallows:
Today, after fighting the evil bastard for half my life, I'm now expected to lay down and just let him kill me. FML

Jace, City of Bones:Today, I found out the girl I love is, in fact, my sister. FML

Jace, City of Glass:
Today, I discovered that not only did my insane father imprison and torture an angel, but he also performed experiments on me and I'm a part-demon Shadowhunter. Ironic. FML

Janie:Today, I found out that my dad isn't missing or dead, he's lying in the hospital in a coma with a permanent expression of extreme pain on his face and a messed up dream playing itself over and over in his head. FML

Today, I found out that either I can let the whole dreamcatcher thing happen, watch my hands become very gnarled, and slowly go blind OR I can shut myself off from the world including Cabel and develop a slowly worsening migraine that causes my brain to practically melt. FML
