Team KEEPER Reboot!

November 12th, 2014 | Blog Uncategorized

**Please Note: Thanks to deadlines, website transitions, and (keeping it real) the fact that you guys are super bad about including spoilers in your comments, I've had to close commenting on this (and all other Team Keeper related posts/pages.)

I know a lot of you have been using the other TEAM KEEPER posts and pages–and that's totally fine! Those pages still exist!
But I know there are a LOT of comments to wade through on there, so since we have a new book out in the world (WOO–EVERBLAZE!!!) I thought it might be a good time to give you guys a fresh new place for discussions. And while I was at it, I added a few new fun things, like some additional character art, two new teams, and the EVERBLAZE playlist!
Scroll down for all the fun. And remember, you're welcome to comment as much as you'd like. There are only two rules for your comments:

  1. Be nice, kind, and positive
  2. Please avoid including spoilers

And now–the teams!
Yep, that's right! We get to choose our own teams here in Keeper-land! (there's even a few new ones, for those who've been hanging around for a while.) And yes, for many of you, your team choices are all about the shipping–which is *always* an awesome reason–but that's also not the *only* reason you can choose a team.
Teams can also be picked for your favorite characters and creatures, or because of who you are and what you relate to. Basically, there's no wrong reason for choosing a team. And if you're having trouble deciding, here's a few facts that might help you make up your mind:

Ever feel like you don't belong? Then you look no further–you belong with Team Sophie! You may not always have the answers, but you're brave and smart, and if you trust yourself, you can handle anything. And as for who holds your heart? Only time will tell how you decide . . .

Ever feel like the underdog? Then welcome to Team Dex! You may have people constantly underestimating you, but you'll prove them all wrong someday. And while you may be the ultimate BFF, you're hoping to break out of the “friend zone” eventually. (you might have pretty great dimples, too . . . )

Ever caused a mess of trouble–and loved every second of it? Then you definitely belong with Team Keefe!  Jokes and pranks are the highlight of your week–but that doesn't mean you can't be serious when you need to be. In fact, you care very deeply about . . . well, maybe you're not ready to admit *who* yet. But you're having fun driving the girls crazy in the meantime!

Ever feel pressure to be who everyone expects you to be? Then Team Fitz is the place for you ! You have the looks, the talent, and the family everybody envies–but that doesn't mean you do everything perfectly. And sometimes you can be a little oblivious when it comes to other people's feelings. But you'll hopefully figure it all out–eventually. . . 

Ever made a mistake and had to work to set it right? Team Biana knows how you feel! You may sometimes say or do the wrong thing, but it's only because you're fiercely protective of the ones you care about. And once you make a true friend, you're friends for life. You're also the best person to ask when it comes to style–but there's so much more to you than you're stunning looks. You're brave, smart, and incredibly talented. And the world hasn't seen anything yet!

Ever feel like no one understands you? Then find lots of people you can relate to on Team Iggy! You may be small and good at making a mess of things–but you always know when someone needs you. And you're happy to provide them with a cuddle, a purr, or a nose-full of toxic breath–whatever they need. And hey, you can rock every crazy fur color there is!

Ever feel like you're all alone? Then you'll find lots of friends with Team Silveny–plus more sparkles than anyone could ever need! You're special and one-of-a-kind and extremely loyal and caring. And no one can deny you have great taste in friends–even if they give you the craziest nicknames.

Ever found that doing the wrong thing can sometimes be right? Then you belong with Team Black Swan! Some may think of you as a rebel, but really you're just seeing the world differently. And you're not afraid to bend or break a few rules–so long as it's to help others. 

Got your team?
