What if characters from other fictional universes had to face Boggarts? (HP Month)


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

Having spent all her life alone in a satellite, Cress is pretty much an introvert. She's so shy that at some point in the books, when she receives a COMM (kinda like a call) from another character, she actually ducks and hides. Public speaking sounds like something she would be afraid of. So if Cress faced a Boggart, it might just as well take the form of a stage in front of a huge audience. I don't know about you, but to those of us who happen to be introverts, public speaking is. the. worst. 

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!

  1. Awesome Soudha! How creative, you picked some great characters to face the Boggart:) I can't think of anyone to add right now, I'll have to get back to you on that:D!

  2. This is such a good idea! I've read all of these series except the Infernal Devices but I have read the Mortal Instruments. You've hit the button on the nose. OH Cress's boggart would be terrifying and Jace's boggart would be sort of comical. This is really creative!
    I'm pretty sure Captain America's boggart would either be him failing Bucky, watching him die... again, or failing to save the innocents. I think Captain America would see a blood bath in his Boggart.

  3. This is a great idea! And while I don't remember anything about ducks (it's been a while since I read those books) I agree with your choices for Katniss and Percy. Ugh, Katniss has so many horrible instances to choose from!
    My boggart would probably be a giant leech or something, ew.

    1. Your boggart sure isn't fun! I can imagine Katniss's boggart changing from one fear to another like Molly's in Order of the Phoenix.

  7. I'm so happy to say that I am familiar with all of these characters!! Generally when I read a post of this sort, there are only one or two that I have read so that was pretty fantastic. I completely forgot about Jace's fear of ducks. I haven't read Infernal Devices yet so I don't know the backstory there. I feel you got these spot on!! I'm actually reading Mark of Athena right now to catch up on Percy.

    1. I chose major fandoms I was familiar with to make sure people would recognize most characters :) Out of the Heroes of Olympus series, Mark of Athena was one of my favorites. I mean, that ending!!!

  8. This is an awesome idea. I love that Jace's would be a duck. I only read the first three books once, so I don't remember that fact, but I CAN PICTURE IT. That would be HILARIOUS! Okay, that was mean. I shouldn't laugh at other peoples boggarts.... I'm sorry.....ha!.... sorry.

    1. Haha, a duck would be totally hilarious since Jace is always so sure of himself and arrogant XD

  9. I love this idea so much! I think you pretty much nailed everyone's Boggarts, especially Cress's. I agree with you, out of all of them I would share a boggart with Cress because public speaking is horrible :(. I laughed out loud when I read Jace's boggart. I could just imagine him facing a boggart with arrogance being like "I got this" and then it turns into this huge duck and he screams and hides, lol =D
