fictional feeds | following characters on social media (part two)

by - 9:50 AM

Hello there! I've been in a bit of a reading rut that seems to be purely fueled by exhaustion - can we say that I'm just a little burnt out by responsibilities? I also have a growing pile of books that need to be reviewed so rather than facing my daunting task list (or actually picking up a book to read), I was browsing through my blog archives.

I stumbled across a Top Ten Tuesday post where the theme for the week focused on following book characters on social media and I remembered how much fun it was to make that so here we are with a second rendition featuring some of my new favorite characters.

check out part one here!

ning  - @teanmemories
Coming from a small village, the court atmosphere would be vividly shown through Ning's feed. I could imagine her pictures ranging from gorgeous palace shots to mouth-watering snaps of all the delicious meals. She would want to present her best side through her snapshots to make sure her family would know that everything is okay.

piranesi  - @tidesandthoughts
Piranesi is a master chronicler and keeps an extremely detailed list of his everyday experiences. His Instagram feed would be as enchanting as his journal entries and highlight the small nuances of his life with an effortless grace that makes each snap magical.

cody  - @heartofjade
I'm still not 100% over Cody and he might very well win the best fictional sibling award for the year. He is reflective and I can see his feed being filled with beautiful scenic shots of the sky (focusing on the moon of course) and captioned with his late night thoughts that will tug at the heartstrings of everyone.

xingyin - @forevermoon
I couldn't not feature one of my favorite characters of 2022 in this list and have a feeling that Xingyin's feed would be full of scenic shots from her adventures as a skilled archer (I'm getting sunset vibes for some reason), court architecture, and of course pictures of the moon to always remember her promise to her mother.

lan  - @spacedonuts
While the rest of the characters of this list would have very aesthetic photos, I think Lan would have the perfect feed for capturing day to day memories. Her photos would be goofy candids of her children, cute couple photos with Shizuku, and lots of donuts.

Instagram would have be the social media app I spend the most time on and I've always had a love/hate relationship with posting there, but I've recently been inching my way back onto the platform and that definitely inspired a lot of this post. I would love to know which characters you'd follow if they had social media and who do you think would have the perfect feed?
