7 Ways to Avoid Ending Up in a Dystopian Novel

This post is a list of things for fictional people not to do. Because, I mean, if you’re in a dystopian book, chances are something really bad has happened to you. So every potential character needs a way to stay out of those situations, right?

  1. DON’T STEAL. EVER.

Self explanatory, that one.

  1. DON’T VOLUNTEER FOR ANYTHING.

Just, y’know, stay under the radar. Who cares about your little sister? Pshaw.

NO, Katniss! Bad Katniss!
  1. IN FACT, JUST DON’T DO ANYTHING DANGEROUS.

“But Mom, everybody else does [insert-highly-illegal-and-most-likely-to-get-you-killed-or-at-least-noticed-and-we-don’t-want-that-to-happen-activity-here]!”

  1. OR MAGICAL, OR SUPERNATURAL.

Dead person talking to me from beyond the grave? *extreme sarcasm* Oh, yes, let’s go chat!

  1. YOU DON’T NEED FRIENDS.

They just get you in so much trouble! You’re halfway to a book just by having them!

Bad move, Tris.
  1. TRY TO HIDE YOUR CRAZY POWERS.

Self explanatory.

  1. AVOID OVERTHROWING THE GOVERNMENT.

It does actually work, for the most part, and they’re a lot more powerful than you. Don’t mess with them.

There you have it, folks! Do try to avoid being in a novel. Ciao.

  1. 7 IS THE BEST NUMBER FOR LISTS. Totally. I back this 100%.
    I love this, though. Snark is good, and also I am seriously impressed with all the trope-picking-out. Pshh, that’s a verb. 😉 Although if I were under the regime of the Capitol, I probably would join the rebellion, ’cause, you know, I don’t really fancy living under President Snow? Yes. 😛
