Get to know Sophie, the main character from the Animage Academy series in this fun interview.
Q1: Are you excited to start your second year at Animage Academy?
Sophie: For sure. I can’t wait to get back to school. Now that everyone can shift and knows their animal, magic lessons are really going to heat up.
Q2: What are you most looking forward to?
So many things. Being back with my friends. I love getting to see Simon more at home, but it gets kind of lonely in upstate New York with just Simon and I. Mom and Dad have been gone a lot this summer.
So friends, being back in the city. I love New York. We also learn more about our animals this year. Depending on what you shift into, each Animage gets to go on a two-week camping trip as our animals to connect and communicate with other animals like us this year. There are no wild dragons anymore, of course, but I can’t wait to spend two weeks as my dragon and see what she has to teach me.
Q3: Do you have any romantic interests?
Sophie: Ha. No. After things imploded with Drew last year, I’m not sure I want to get involved with anyone.
Interviewer: I heard a rumor that you and Hudson shared a kiss.
Sophie: Oh yeah—that. Well, things were very heated in that moment. We never really talked about it again.
Interviewer: Do you have any feelings for Hudson?
Sophie: Of course I do, he’s my best friend. Besides Simon, he’s the person I’m closest to. But it’s—complicated. Do I want something romantic to happen? I think I’m afraid of hurting our friendship. I don’t know. What’s the next question?
Q4: Any big plans for the summer?
Sophie: Simon and I plan on meeting up with Willa, Gracie, and Hudson to go to the big faerie festival in a couple of weeks. That should be fun.
Q5: Now some fun ‘getting to know you questions’: If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be and why?
Sophie: Ha. Okay. That’s a weird question. I have no idea. I’ve always liked those redwood trees out in California. So tall and strong. If I had to pick a tree to be, I’d pick one of those.
Q6: When was the last time you lost your temper?
Sophie: Like three minutes ago. Ask anymore who knows me, I have a bit of a temper.
Q7: If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs—such as food and water—were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
Sophie: Ha. Nothing. I’d just shift and fly back home. I’m not staying on a deserted island.
Interviewer: Nice loophole. For the sake of the question, let’s say that not an option.
Sophie: Okay, Okay. Ummm—I guess a book, but it would be hard trying to decide which one. I’d also need something to do with my hands. Maybe a sketchpad? I’m kind of jealous Hudson can draw so well so if I’m marooned on a desert island I’d have plenty of time to draw something and show him up.
Q8: Do you put both socks on first, or one sock, one shoe?
Sophie: To be completely honest, I’d rather wear flip-flops or go barefoot. If I have to wear them, I put both socks on, and then shoes.
Q9: What’s the most useless talent you have?
Sophie: I can whistle almost any song.
Q10: What’s your favorite quote.
Sophie: “Fear her when she looks into the fire and smiles.”
