I wish I could pick two. Or three. Or four. I love them all!
I like Jessica because she's so out of her depth, and I know how it feels.
I like Rex because I know how it is to be the nerd, and to have stuff inside you you don't like, and to always go by the book.
I like Melissa because I like how the awesomeness of comic book mindreading has been smashed by harsh 'reality'.
I like Dess because... um... she's awesome. She makes SPEARS.
And I like Jonathan because he can FLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Beth-la on August 29, 2010, 11:49:30 AM
I'm not sure exactly why, but Jessica and Johnathan are just irritating and boring to me. Dess is just,yeah, awesome.  But Rex and Melissa are still my faves, especially Mellisa.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Mary-La on August 29, 2010, 11:50:58 AM
I love Dess, I love Melissa and I love darkling Rex!
Jonathan is a jerk. All he cares about is escaping Flatland and he doesn't care how many people die for him to get it.  
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: tridecagirl on August 29, 2010, 11:51:50 AM
That's not true! He still helps them stop the rip!

I don't think he was a jerk. That's a bit extreme. He was only like that for 1/2 the first book. And most teenagers dream of getting out of their god forsaken home towns. I know I do.

I agree
My favorite's Melissa, then Rex, but I like all of them :D
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Beth-la on August 29, 2010, 12:09:01 PM
Yes, Rex is my second fave. Esp. darkling Rex.

i like dess the best, but i still like all of them
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Beth-la on August 30, 2010, 03:08:07 AM
Dess was probably my third favorite.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?

Mel+Dess rock
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on August 30, 2010, 11:46:30 AM
Dess is my fav, then melissa and then Darkling Rex.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Mara-la on September 03, 2010, 12:45:20 PM
Melissa is the best, followed by Dess, followed by Rex, followed by Jonathan, followed by Jessica.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: WISHIWASJONATHAN on September 04, 2010, 07:25:16 AM
JON AND JESS!  :D DUH!!!!!!!
I MAY BE A GUY, BUT EVEN I KNOW THEY'RE AN AWESOME FREAKING COUPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Beth-la on September 04, 2010, 09:03:31 AM
I dunno, Rex and Melissa are pretty freaking cool.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Nina-Chan on September 04, 2010, 08:59:09 PM
they are all good
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Khoela on September 04, 2010, 09:46:10 PM
I've finished all but Blue Noon (Still halfway through...)
I like Dess the best, plus I know how she feels being the odd one out with Melissa and Rex and Jonathan and Jessica.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: WISHIWASJONATHAN on September 05, 2010, 04:07:44 AM

I didn't think he was like that at all, honestly.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: PolishPheonix on December 14, 2010, 12:23:45 PM
I've always liked Dess as my favorite, though Melissa and Rex are both pretty cool as well, but I liked Rex more in the first book.
Jessica I thought was okay, but I just liked most of the other characters better.
As for Jonathan, I've always been a little jealous of his ability to fly, but I wish they'd gone into his background a bit more.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on December 14, 2010, 12:27:26 PM
Yeah he really wasn't given that much of a story. Welcome to the forum!
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Love-wa on December 21, 2010, 03:01:25 AM
for me the best midnighter is dess because she is a great in what se do!
i just love her, she is really smart!!
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on December 28, 2010, 10:43:58 AM
She's my fave too.

Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Pavlova2 on February 05, 2011, 07:46:53 AM
I have only read the first book but Jess is the coolest so far, Dess is not that far behind though...
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Paris - Sensei on February 11, 2011, 01:23:44 PM
My fave is defently Dess, than Rex, jonathon. I dont know but jessica seems very cryish and mellisa just seems mean but I like her too,
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on February 12, 2011, 10:12:26 AM
Yeah, Melissa had a reason though, I mean I would be cranky if I had everyones mindless chatter in my head.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Paris - Sensei on February 12, 2011, 10:46:40 AM
True that qould get pretty annoying. but, she is still cool. She learned how to control it though
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on February 12, 2011, 02:25:03 PM
Yeah, but to me it felt more like she learned how to deal with it not control it. I think if she learned to control it more she would have been uber powerful.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Paris - Sensei on February 13, 2011, 01:50:27 AM
yeah that makes sense.... Well she did though learn how to make sure she does not go over baord when she touches something. Thats a little control, but yeah I agree
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on February 13, 2011, 06:35:51 AM
Yeah, I'm talking like control as in she could learn to manipulate minds. Think she could like make the Darklings kill each other.

Bleh Jess Bleh.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Paris - Sensei on February 14, 2011, 12:28:40 PM
Yeah that would be cool if Melissa could do that Seth. But idk if she can, lol. And Jessica is just to daylight... lol. She is ok but not my favorite
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on February 15, 2011, 01:15:04 PM

Post by: dessometrics on March 08, 2011, 04:51:37 AM
Dess! I love her brain and that she's a polymath :)
I also like Melissa post Madeleine, she is much less of a biotch after that.

Jessica and Jonathan are totally wrong for each other,  they always have disagreements and they are kinda boring.

I'm not a huge Rex fan, he kinda weirds me out, not gonna lie ;)
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?

Post by: shadley on March 10, 2011, 10:16:39 AM
I haven't played it but know of it. I like God of War or Dante's Inferno, or Final Fantasy.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: dessometrics on March 10, 2011, 10:42:52 AM
Cool cool, I've played God of War before, I liked it a lot but it was the older one on like the playstation or something so I could only play it at my friends house
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on March 10, 2011, 02:41:27 PM
Yeah, I didn't get into God of War until I got my PS3 and so I got GoW 1 and 2 in the rereleased collection. Dante's inferno is a lot like GoW in fighting style but better in a lot of ways, plus I love the story of Dante's Inferno.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Sidney-la on June 10, 2011, 04:21:48 AM
My favrotie would have to be Dess.
Johnathen and Jessica just, booore me
I dont care for Rex
and Melisssa, i don know.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Shadow on June 12, 2011, 03:45:12 AM
Am I seriously the only one who voted for Rex? :(
He was such a sweetie....

I like Rex a lot, especially when he went like half darkling but Dess is just awesome.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: G-la on June 19, 2011, 04:56:57 AM
i love jessica cuz she is always the odd one out, no matter what, but i understand why dess is everyones fav. she didnt get much of the stroy to herself, and when she did it was either by herself or over shadowed by one of the others, plus her power is the least functional, yet she applies it in ways beyond the others. she took math matics!!!! and made it epic enough to make shields and spears that murn on empact, plus shes also the one who is most natural, she dosnet have any problems other than feeling left out...unlike rex and his dad...mel and her touching, johnathan and his closeted anti social behaior, and of couse jesss and her well just never fitting in...or perhaps fitting in too much...
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on June 19, 2011, 01:27:11 PM
Hey my old profile pic doppelganger(before I switched pics anyway). I think that Dess' power is actually one of the most functional only second behind Jessica. Dess makes weapons and protection and she is the only one that does really, her power is at least more functional than Melissa's I mean she can't read the minds of the Darklings. That would have been epic if she could have, she would have known all their plans and been epic in combat. She would know every move and then beat them to the punch. Hmm, I like that though.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: charis-rableau on July 21, 2011, 06:41:47 AM
:/ I'm I the only one that really liked Melissa? I LOVED her. I read the series back in middle school, so I would often pretend to be Melissa. Don't ask. But yeah. She was my favorite. Everyone seems to like Dess. But she was amazing and funny, so I understand.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on July 21, 2011, 09:49:28 AM
I liked her, but she isn't my fav. And it's perfectly normal that you emulated her, middle school is an impressionable time.

Perfectly normal.... *mutters to herself* half of my school didn't think so.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on July 21, 2011, 10:28:31 AM
Well, it wouldn't seem normal if you just started yelling "I hear voices in my head!!!!!!!!" You know with Melissa's mind reading.
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: charis-rableau on July 22, 2011, 11:06:27 AM
Hahaha. True! Very true. It wasn't to that extreme, but that would've been a nice trick to play/
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: shadley on July 22, 2011, 12:04:46 PM
Yeah. Every once in a while I kinda want to pretend I'm a polymath and weaponmaker like Dess and throw a spoon at my sister while saying something like: Demonstration or cheeseburgers!(any 13-letter word)

AGREED!!!! I almost couldn't stand Rex at the beginning. He was so weak.

I liked him. I thought he seemed human - he had flaws.
I'm pretty sure I'd be weak too, after having an abusive father that you'd destroyed and having to take care of him and live with that guilt.....

Post by: teapotsandtulips on August 25, 2011, 11:51:22 AM

I really need to re-read the trilogy, and I haven't read it since 4 or 5 yrs ago. After going through the forum, I practically fell in love with Dess all over gain! <3

Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Barking_spiders on September 22, 2012, 11:52:53 AM
For some reason I really like Rex, especially as a Darkling-minded midnighter. My second fav is Melissa (I tend to like characters that have issues) then Dess, Jonathan and Jess, in that order.  ;D
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?

I'm kind of.in between Melissa and dess. Melissa's attitude makes me laugh!
Title: Re: Fave midnighter?
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on June 14, 2013, 11:00:12 AM
Dess just has an awesome attitude and she's smart and she gets to use math to totally kick darkling ass! (I love when she says that...)

Also, many times when there's a group of people and all of them are couply with each other but one, the non-couply one is totally awesome, like Dess and Leo...
