Road Trip Wednesday...Wait, What?

So...I blame Labor Day for my completely lack of ability to remember what day it is. I told myself I was going to do RTW and then I forgot it was Wednesday (I also had classes from one until seven in the afternoon so that didn't help). But because this week's topic was so AWESOME, I decided to do it two days late.

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
What non-YA character would you love to see star in a YA book as themselves?

I'm going to cheat and do a couple because I'll be sitting here all night if I try to pick just one.

Numair Salmalin
If you don't know who this is, you need to go read Tamora Pierce's Immortals series right away. Meaning NOW. I think he was my first fictional love way back in middle school when I first read these books and he's still one of my favorite male characters. I'm not even entirely sure if I should include him on this list because according to Tamora Pierce's website, my dream is becoming a reality.
2013 TBD: NUMAIR: THE EARLY YEARS 1 (very tentative title), in which we learn of Numair's last years at the university of Carthak, the beginning of his conflict with the newly-made Emperor Ozorne (Numair's best friend), his quick departure from Carthak, and how he survives afterward, in Random House hardcover in the U.S. and Canada
I am so excited! I haven't been this excited for a book since Harry Potter. Is it 2013 yet?

Severus Snape
It would make my year if Rowling wrote a book (or a few) from Snape's point of view. I think that would be so incredible just to see everything that he went through and everything that went on that isn't shown. His memories are some of my favorite scenes in the books. I just love his character and I think it would be incredible to see things from behind his eyes and explore him in more depth.
