In the final week of the Divergent Faction-of-the-week Challenge, we were supposed to embody the spirit of The Brave faction. What is Dauntless?
DAUNTLESS: fearless, undaunted.

Undaunted: courageously resolute, especially in the face of danger or difficulty; not discouraged.

In the book, they are the policemen, soldiers, etc. They ride the trains around town, jumping on and off of them while they're still moving. They also wear all black and have many tattoos and piercings.

What did I do for Dauntless week?

To start with, I worked out every day this week, which seems rather Dauntless-esque. I wore black shirts three days.

And I faced one of my fears... (look in the top right of the photo for a hint)

needles. While doing something very Dauntless...

It's a tiny tiger. Isn't he cute?!

And I faced my biggest fear! This one would dominate my fear landscape. (Thanks to my sister who put together the video!)

Here's proof of my open-eyed-status from the ride photo:

OH. And I was totally kidding about the tattoo. That's a stick-on one my roommate had hanging around. :-P I'd be a horrible Candor.

But the rest of it is true.


  1. I was sure! I knew I saw it somewhere and I knew that it was hers! haha and I didn't know Mummy was ur worst! I thought it was tower of terror (My hand still hurts) :P

  2. Cute video...and brave girl. Good for you.

  3. WOWZA You had a heck of a Dauntless week! Working out, wearing black, and riding the flat-out scariest looking coaster I have ever seen. You whooped my week, for SURE. Well done!!

  4. AMAZING! You had an incredible Dauntless week. My tattoo was only a temporary one, and I had no real fear facing this week. Kudos to you! :)

  5. Tower of Terror is pretty bad, but I don't have regular access to that. And you're in the dark for a shorter time and there aren't mummies threatening to eat your soul or whatever.

  6. Yeah, Dauntless week was fun, but I don't think I'd want to be in the faction. I really don't like getting punched and kicked! :-)

  7. Luckily (or un-luckily on regular weeks) my biggest fear is one that's easy to find!

  8. Haha, I totally believed the tattoo! :D Such a cute video! GO DAUNTLESS!

  9. Thanks Debra! My mom believed the tattoo too - she cried until she read the end!
