Cuts extract from the album AJA,
The Hero’s Journey: Divergent
There might be spoilers in this blog post!
Beatrice Prior lives in the Abnegation faction of the city Chicago. Her family consists of her parents and her brother, Caleb. Her everyday life is go to school and essentially not be selfish and do things for others (Abnegation are a selfless kind of people).
Call to Adventure:
Beatrice has her call to adventure when she goes in to take her aptitude test on what faction suits her best. She has very mixed results on her lab tests.
Refusal of the Call:
Beatrice can’t tell anyone of her results (not because it’s a rule), because she didn’t get two results, but three. She somehow manipulated the test and now she is wondering who she really is. She gets her answer: she’s Divergent.
Meeting the Mentor:
Beatrice doesn’t meet her mentor until after she enters the threshold. But she has many: Four, Christina, Al, Will, Tori, and more.
Crossing the Threshold:
Everyone is at the choosing ceremony and Beatrice decides to join the Dauntless faction. Beatrice (now called Tris) is rushed into the world of the Dauntless; the Dauntless are people of physical skill something Beatrice isn’t custom too. Tris is running around town, jumping on and off trains, and into bottomless pits.
Tests, Allies, Enemies:
Tris goes through many tests while training for final selection on who gets into the Dauntless faction. She also learns who are her allies: Four, Christine, Will, Tori and many others. Enemies become apparent as well to Tris; Eric and Peter (both major bullies with no good intentions).
Tris now approaches another test. This test has the possibility of revealing her “divergentcy”. She has to be induced under a fear serum, but with her being divergent she can manipulate the simulation. This is a challenge for Tris, but thankfully her ally, Four, helps her out.
Death, Ordeals, Rebirth
The death of a close friend of Tris proves to be a great grievance for Tris. She is starting to see the flaws in the Dauntless and isn’t liking what all they stand for, and starts to think there’s something else that is happening under the surface of the factions.
Reward, Seizing the Sword:
Tris has made it through initiation and is rewarded with being at the top of her class. However, this moment isn’t long lived because of a serum injected into everyones system that makes them in to vegetables.
The Road Back:
Tris and Tobias (Four’s real name)are the only ones who aren’t effected by the serum and try to find a way to save everyone and make things right. They are found out and Tobias is given another serum and Tris is sentenced to death. Tris makes it out and finds her friends and family. On her way to get Tobias she kills her friend Will and her parents are both killed.
Tris gets Tobias out of his serum mind haze to shut down the Erudite’s (another faction) simulation and in result ending the Dauntless’s mind control.
Return with Elixir:
There isn’t an elixir to return with, however, Tris and her crew go to Amity (another faction) to seek safety and answers. This leading to the next book Insurgent.
I love this city so much that i can’t stop taking pictures around.
