The Unwanteds – Meeting Two
Hello Fantasy League,
Today we meet for our second Unwanted meeting. I like the sound of an unwanted meeting, don’t you?
Last time around we just read a few pages and then gave some of our first responses or initial feelings. You can review them here.
Today we were to read up to page 100 or the chapter titled Parallel Lessons.
I am really getting into the story and as I read I have loads of thoughts about our Fantasy League and how we would act if we were Unwanted and found ourselves living in Artime.
Let’s start with this great quote from page 75.
“Writing led to creativity, and creativity led to revolt, which was very bad.”
-High Priest Justine
Writing surely leads to creativity, but I thinks most of the time creativity leads to writing. Do you think creativity leads to revolt? Is a revolution always “very bad?”
That’s a heavy question, let’s have some fun now.
So Alex finds out he will take art classes, Meghan will do music, Lani will study writing and storytelling and Samheed will focus on acting.
What class would you find yourself?
If you think of yourself as an artist I think you should draw your idea of what Ms. Octavia, the octogator art teacher, looks like.
The next chapter is called Parallel Lessons and most likely will switch back to Quill and focus in on Aaron and what is happening to him as he is taught at the Quill school.
What you you think he will be taught? How do you think he is feeling, especially now that we know what Samheed thinks he did?
You will need to read to page 199 or A Glimpse of Quill before our next meeting on Monday, May 7.
