The 100 Board 30 Days Challenge: Let the fun begin!



#1

Welcome to the first 30 Days Challenge thread!

Usually those kind of challenges only take up a month but we wanted something that would keep us busy during the hiatus.

The idea: Each week (starting from Monday, June 12th) we will be discussing two topics (covering two days) - in any form you want: posting your thoughts, replying to other posters or sharing your favourite fan art.

Remember to be constructive and stay respectful. But most of all, have fun!



{x}

30 Days Challenge List:

Day 1: Favourite Ark-born female character?
Day 2: Favourite Ark-born male character
Day 3: Favourite Earth-born female character?
Day 4: Favourite Earth-born male character?
Day 5: Grounders or Skaikru?
Day 6: Best leader?
Day 7: Favourite quote or reference?
Day 8: Favourite Grounder phrase
Day 9: Best warrior?
Day 10: Best fight?
Day 11: Favourite romantic ship? (canon or non-canon)
Day 12: Favourite friendship?
Day 13: Favourite family relationship?
Day 14: Favourite grounder clan?
Day 15: Favourite episode?
Day 16: Favourite season?
Day 17: Favourite cast member?
Day 18: Favourite cast friendship?
Day 19: Favourite guest star?
Day 20: Favourite minor character?
Day 21: Most heartbreaking moment?

Oh, this should be fun. I've never done one of these before.

I've got clear answers coming to mind for all of them. Well, most of them.

So we start with the Day 1 topic and discuss it for 2 days? Am I understanding that correctly?

I was thinking that we could discuss two topics for a week, so answering two questions at once. But we can also do Monday-Thursday one topic and then Friday-Sunday another one.

Whichever way works better for you.

I'll just answer the first one for now, because my answers might be kind of drawn out sometimes.

They won't all be this pretty, by the way. I'm just bored right now.



Favorite Ark-Born Female Character:





Yes, despite all her flaws, it's still Clarke Griffin.



Perhaps it's even because of her flaws that she remains my favorite.
Raven is often easier to like, but Clarke is still someone I root for.



Clarke is one of the few female characters to ever even be comparable to Buffy Summers.
It's not an easy feat to be that brave and that strong and that much of a leader.



Unlike Buffy, she's actually more of an anti-hero than a hero.
Her decisions are so morally debatable, which is thought-provoking.
Her intentions certainly don't always justify the outcomes.



Like Buffy, she's ultimately still just a young girl who did not ask for the burdens she bears,
but who bears them regardless of this fact because she knows that someone has to.
Even when she makes me feel conflicted, I find that to be an admirable trait about her.









Runners Up:
1. Raven Reyes
2. Octavia Blake

Ooh, this looks fun! Thanks for the thread, Paulina

April, I love everything you said about Clarke. I totally agree that her flaws are a huge part of what make her a great character. And the gifs you found are so pretty!

This is going to be fun!

Now I'm having an existential crisis over whether I should put Raven or Clarke for Day One. I love them both so much.

Thanks for starting this, Paulina. Love the questions and I'm sure that we will have a lot of interesting replies to these.

April, love your post! Especially what you said about Clarke's flaws being part of the reason why you love/root for her.

Amelia, I'm having that same issue.

I was bored and just happened to be looking at Clarke gifs, Lisa. They won't all be that pretty. But thank you.

Yeah, Clarke without the flaws . . . no thanks. Her flaws are what make her human.

Honestly, though . . . I compared her to Buffy a lot because I think Buffy is one of the most important and iconic television characters of all time. Scratch that, one of the most iconic and important fictional characters in general, beyond just the scope of television. Without Buffy to pave the way, it's unlikely we end up with a character like Clarke Griffin. But one area where I feel this show actually surpasses Buffy is the moral ambiguity of its heroine's decisions. Buffy kind of walked the fine line between morally right and morally wrong--they had her flirt with the idea of embracing her dark side, but ultimately, they utilized other characters (primarily Faith) to tell that storyline. This show utilizes Clarke (and Bellamy). This show utilizes its leads to tell the darkest, most unsettling stories. That's ballsy.

Amazing post, April.

I'm going to work on my posts this weekend and post them over the course of next week.

Amelia, Sarah, I will definitely write about Raven, so she will be represented.

Paula ... we all know how much you love Charlotte. Since you're sporting an icon of her as we speak.

I want to make my posts as pretty as April's (and some of the other posts that you guys make for the rankings thread) but then I just get lazy.

Paulina, I love the idea of four days for one topic ... so it won't be overwhelming with the other things that we have going on the board. (Maybe it's me that is struggling though )

What do you guys think?

Paula, the official start is on Monday. April is just quicker than us.

I'm fine with either way, whatever the majority prefers.
