☆All About Sophie☆
Sophie Alice Mercer is the 16-year old, snarky, freckle-faced girl next door type that you NEVER want to mess with! Her brown hair, blue eyes and innocent freckles hide powers that are second to none in all of wizarding history, including in that famous galaxy far, far away!!! That’s right! Even Darth Vader is no match for Sophie Mercer!
But until now (until she turned 16), Sophie “Soo-fee-yuh” has been sheltered her entire life from what she truly is . . . the most powerful witch ever! She’s constantly been moved around the country by her mother, from one school to the next, just because she sometimes (innocently!) exposes her powers to other humans! And then it’s always time to pack up and leave?! Sheesh! How unfair is that?
Yup, the last spell she cast was the last straw; A TOTALLY AWESOME spell at the Senior Prom for the most popular guy at school, making him want to be with the biggest loser at school! And if you haven’t read Hex Hall, then you have got to read the prologue, it’s hilarious! But now she’s done it! With that last, totally wicked spell, she’s been sentenced to Hecate Hall (or as Jenna, her roommate and best friend would say, “Hex Hall”), the school of magical misfits who must be isolated to prevent them from exposing themselves to humans. And that’s where her totally AWESOME powers are developed, along with her crush for two very HOT love interests named Archer and Cal, who, by the way . . . want you all to #VoteTeamSophie!
☆Why Sophie ROCKS!☆
Snarkiness! Yeah, that may not be a magical power, but it powers her interactions with everyone! And it’s probably what helps make her so fiercely independent and loyal . . . and not easily swayed by the popular (MEAN) girls . . . or even easily discouraged in the face of adversity! It’s also what powers her connection to her other, magical powers!
Speaking of which, those magical powers are second to none! On a scale of 1-10 . . . HELLO!!! . . . her powers rate a solid 100! Here’s just a little of what she can do . . .
The unstoppable Sophie doesn’t need any magical instrument to focus her powers! She only needs to think about what she wants to do and her powers take care of the rest! The only problem? Sometimes her accomplishments are heightened so massively by her powers that she far exceeds her goal! For example, when Sophie’s father tells her to break a mirror, she looks at one and simply thinks “break.” The only problem is that she doesn’t just break one mirror, she breaks EVERY mirror in the room! Another time Sophie and her friends are hanging out in a Prodigium club and “The Eye” (religious killers of all things magical) unexpectedly shows up! But while trying to escape, the crowd is hysterically running around so Sophie thinks in her mind, “Move” and then a force field surrounds herself and her friends, but the force field tramples everyone in their path! And let’s not talk again about that wicked love spell she cast on Kevin Bridges! But the full extent of her true powers always comes out when she’s caught up in the toughest situations . . . and then you REALLY see how powerful she is and what she is capable of . . . AND then you truly know that you never want to mess with her!!!
☆Why Sophie is MY HERO!☆
Sophie has AWESOME magical abilities. But that’s not what makes Sophie a true heroine. What makes Sophie a true heroine is that she doesn’t think about the dangers to herself while fighting for what she believes in. So, not only does she fight for what’s right (even when abused by the meanest girls in school), but she’ll even go out of her way (and put herself in danger!) to protect and save the mean girls! EVEN if saving them means killing someone very important to her. Yeah, just like the night The Eye swarmed the Prodigium club . . . in the middle of all that pure craziness, when her friends were only thinking about how to get the heck out, Sophie just wanted to help out the rest of the Prodigium. BUT even then, she knew she had to get her friends out first!
☆Why should you vote for Sophie instead of Katniss???☆
Well, since this is a Heroine Tournament you would assume that I should be proving why one heroine is a better than the other…Right? But they are both amazing heroines! How do you compare these two? Their lives were soooo very different! We don’t know what Katniss would be like if she lived like Sophie or vice versa. So instead, here is my plea on Sophie’s behalf.
Sophie is a Prodigium that has an insane power. She demonstrated that her love of good and right was even more precious to her than her blood or even her own well-being. For GOODNESS SAKE she had to kill her demon grandmother to protect the Prodigium at Hecate Hall…come on! She was also willing to strip her own powers which would cause her to lose a part of herself with knowledge of what great pain it would bring. True self-sacrifice, knowing to protect others from one’s self! That is a true heroine!
So Again, how do you compare two amazing beings with undeniable heroism? I cant. I can only ask that you vote for Sophie because she stood against her heritage, her blood, her family for the sake of humankind, friends, enemies and frenamies, alike.
So there you have it! Obviously Sophie TOTALLY ROCKS!!! Soooooo... #VoteTeamSophie NOW!!!
