When I first met him, I would have put Seth down as a peace-loving Amity. Apart from the brightly-coloured red and yellow clothes worn by the Amity faction, (Seth tends to stick to black and grey) he absolutely fits the bill. Starting from the time when he lived in the world of spirits, before we were even born, he has been a peace-maker. As he says, he's spent an eternity working to keep the peace between Caleb and Jared, his two best friends. And his Amity qualities don't stop there. Seth's also a very talented artist and designer. His dream job is to do computer generated images for movies. In fact he's so good, he even won a scholarship to the School of Art in New York.
But Shenaya has a way of bringing the 'other' side out of people's natures. Seth now carries a sword strapped to his side, which he's not afraid to use. More than once, I've seen him step into a fight against formidable odds, just to protect me. And he's not afraid of speaking up either, if it means confronting evil or injustice. So, yes. It's not really surprising that he's Dauntless.
And what about me? I've been a fighter all my life. The very idea of standing back and allowing some creep to hurt the people I love makes me furious. I can see Seth smiling at me. He knows very well that I'm not above getting physical to prove a point, or to protect the down-trodden. In fact, I'm ashamed to say, even though Seth's my soul mate, I've thumped him a couple of times too - both physically and verbally. I guess I could use more of his Amity and less of my Candor!
Anyway, I thought I would share this with you. If you want to take the faction quiz, check out the Divergent page at: https://www.facebook.com/DivergentSeries It's fun. And, as an aside, neither of us can wait for Insurgent to come out in May.
Bye for now,
