Continuing with the month's Harry Potter theme, I thought it would be fun to imagine the forms Boggarts might take if they were faced by characters from other books than Harry Potter. For this, I'm going to be considering books that are among the current major fandoms, so long I've read the books of course.
Originally, I wanted to include Divergent in the lot but figured that since the characters already face their fears in the books (and movies), we kind of already know what their Boggarts would look like. And now let's start.
Loud and clear everyone... Riddikulus!
(Not So Fun Fact: Ron Weasley and I share the same Boggart...)
Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Throughout the series, Katniss fears not only for her life but also for the people she loves. However, as demonstrated by the very concluding scene of the series, her greatest fear and the thing that has affected her most, are the Hunger Games. If Katniss had to face a Boggart, it would either take the form of a contestant she has to kill or a reproduction of the arena.
Percy from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan

As the series progresses, Percy's fears do change but one which is pretty dominant, especially in the earlier installments, is his fear of planes or simply flying. Zeus, the God of the Sky is pretty pissed that Percy's dad, Poseidon, broke the pact he made with his brothers to not have any more half-human children. Consequently, Zeus warns Percy that should he ever come in his domain, by boarding a plane for instance, he'll be blasted out of the sky. So Percy's Boggart would probably take the form of a plane.
Jace from the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

This one is pretty hilarious. It's mentioned in the books that Jace has an irrational dislike for ducks. Where this weird and totally random phobia comes from? Well, I suppose it's a weird genetic thing... If you've read The Infernal Devices trilogy, you probably know what I mean XD. So yeah, Jace's Boggart would be a duck!
Cress from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

So that's it for this HP Month post guys. Did you read any of the series mentioned above? If yes, what is your favorite character and what form do you think his or her Boggart might take? Let me know in the comments!
