We promised we would share answers from the street team members on why each person wanted to join the Dauntless faction. We are going to share the answers from the first 30 members. More will be posted next week.
I completely identified with Tris's decision in Divergent and love the fearlessness behind the DAUNTLESS.
- Sara's Books and Life
I want to stand tall and not be afraid. I want to live on my will power and not be a coward.
- Beata M.
Because I'm fierce, I love adrenaline rushes and good tattoos.
- JustJmac's Facebook
Living Dauntless is to face life's fears and obstacles and cleverly overcome them. There is no better way to live!
- Fiction State of Mind
I honestly wasn't sure I was Dauntless until I re-read Divergent and I realized that I loved surprises and I would be the kid who is scared of nights but would jump off the building anyways. I'm a strong person and once I get something stuck in my head, I'm determined to see it through.
- Reading the Best of the Best
I've lived my life trusting my instincts to survive and overcome many things. I intend to continue in this manner. I trust Tris and Four's example of choosing DAUNTLESS and believe that DAUNTLESS is my faction as well.
- Novels by G. Donald Cribbs
Because I believe in facing your fears and living in the moment like the Dauntless do. Don't be afraid to live life to the fullest; don't let your fears keep you from doing what you want.
- Paranormal Dystopia
I try to be brave. I don't want to be afraid anymore.
- Stephanie Diaz
Because I'm into tattoos and piercings :P
- Fighting Dreamer
I am the old Dauntless. The one who cherishes strength and bravery. Not being a bully and standing up for what you think is right. It's where I belong and where I could find myself.
- Paper Cuts
I want to join the DAUNTLESS faction because I feel it is where I belong. I am a strong, independent person who is fearless when it comes to the tasks at hand. I think I would make a great addition to Dauntless.
- Steph's Book Corner
Because for so long I've been selfless and taught to do such. I want to be brave and learn to face fear head on. To come out completely out of the shy shell I used to live in.^^
- The Dauntless Writer
Bravery before brains, bravery before blood, bravery for beliefs.
- Misty's Book Mess
The Dauntless aren't afraid to march to the beat of their own drum. Having the guts to be who you really are is true courage.
- Starting the Next Chapter
Short and simple: because Tris is amazing and the strength she gains by being a dauntless is fantastic. I want to learn to face my fears like her!
- The O.W.L
I want to be in the Dauntless faction because I believe that a person must have the determination and will to learn. To do great things you need to perservere and step out of your comfort zone and that is what makes up courage. It's not how strong you are or how tough you look but it's how far you're willing to go for the faction or anything else. I want to be in the Dauntless faction because I want to experience what it's like to explore new things and be able to face trials and obstacles head on. I want to be brave and I know I can do good.
- Soul Sisters
I've been fearless my entire life. It's about time I flaunt it!!
- The ParaHangover
Joined Dauntless for the knowledge that I could face anything and come out on top.
- 600 Sugarcubes
I was born to be Dauntless, it's in my blood.
Knowing me, I would be born into Dauntless. I have always be "encouraged" to try everything and anything. I'm a natural fighter, but as well as intelligent. But I'm not cocky like those Erudites ;D. Naturally I belong in Dauntless ;D
- The Reading Fish
I would want to join the Dauntless faction because I want to face my fears head on and I wish for my life to be exciting and to live life to the fullest and I find that would be fulfilled best in the Dauntless Faction. Plus I always wanted to use moving trains as my transportation.
The Dauntless are brave regardless of the circumstances that they are faced with!
Because I am DAUNTLESS! oh and Yara asked me too=)
- A Book-Lovers Review
Hummm... Why the Dauntless faction? Was there ever even another option? We ROCK! Hands Down! Enough Said! :)
- Lover of Paranormal
Dauntless gives me the option to do things that I've always wanted to do but never could. I try to be this good kid all the time, but every now and then I'm just not. I am really proud when I do something that normal people wouldn't think of doing because it could ruin an object or hurt them. I've started to becomem very brave and bold, and I want to be free to do that.
- Brooke R.
Dauntless are afraid, but act anyways.
- Books Were My First Friends
I was to be a Dauntless member, because I want to learn to master and conquer my fears! Also jumping on and off of trains is rather appealing! PLUS the dauntless don't hide they face everything head on with no nonsense!
- Moonlight Book Reviews
I love to read and support authors.
