TCWT Blog Chain Post: December

When I decided to join the blog chain for this month from TCWT, the topic really confused me. Which fictional world would I want to live in and what would I do there? The main problem here is that I read— a lot. So, narrowing down all of the fictional worlds that I’ve read about would be fairly difficult. To fix this problem, I’ve decided to start with the ones that I don’t want to live in (in no particular order) and go from there.

1.      Panem

Yeah, no. I’ve actually just finished reading the first book in the Hunger Games series. Most of that country is destitute and dirty. And then there’s the Hunger Games itself. I’ve always considered myself a pacifist (mostly out of necessity as I would never win in a fight, although I do like sword fighting), so that would just not do for me. Even if I did manage to be one of the citizens of the Capitol, I would still have to watch the Hunger Games, and I’m pretty sure I would spend the whole time losing my lunch.

2.      Middle Earth

As much as I love the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit (who’s ready to see the next movie with me?), I really don’t think I’d like to live there. I don’t want to live in a world with gigantic battles, which it seems the whole continent was involved in. Once again, pacifist. If I was to live there, I’d want to be an elf, though. Admittedly, this is mostly for the pointy ears.

3.      Camp Half Blood/ Jupiter

Ok, this one is a definite maybe. For those of you who don’t know, these are the camps from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus series. I highly recommend reading the series. I don’t quite as highly recommend living in that world. Although having a god for a parent might sound cool and have some great benefits, they are pretty much the worst dead-beats in history. And there’s lots of fighting. So, maybe not.

4.      The Ender’s Game world

What kind of people would force a bunch of kids to become super soldiers and then trick them into killing hundreds of aliens?! It’s terrible. I don’t need to say any more about this one. Hmm, I realize that I may have just ruined the book, and/or movie for you. Sorry.

5.      Twilight’s world

Okay, I realize that I’m kind of cheating with this one, as I have never (and will never unless I’m absolutely desperate for a book) read the book, but come on! Vaguely pedophilic vampires who sparkle. Lame.

6.      Narnia

I think I would love it in Narnia. It’s magicky and sensational and it’s got cool talking animals. If I had to pick one fictional world to exist in, I’d probably choose Narnia. I would like to be some sort of magician if possible. I would also probably fight in this world, if only because it seems that people don’t actually die very often.

7.      My worlds

If you really want the absolute truth, I would most likely prefer to live in one of the worlds from my own imagination. After all, I like my own stories better anyway. If I had to pick one, I’d pick the world of the story where a writer gets sucked into a fairy tale world (I’m not telling the name yet). I created that one around me anyway.

             What about you? What fictional world would you like to live in, and what would you do there?

Oops, I almost forgot to add the other participants of the blog chain for this month.

    I always thought I’d like to live in the world of Scarlett Ohara, not for the time but for the clothing.. You know, bustles, big/huge skirts, and most men gentlemen.. Trouble is that era, was not good for everyone. My politics would not be welcome in the Southern States. LOL

    That’s the thing about fictional worlds, isn’t it — they’re full of conflicts and violence. Which is why we like to read about them and write about them, but it doesn’t make them much fun to live in.

    You say you would like to be an elf because of the ears … but what about immortality? Would you like to live forever in Middle-earth, or would you prefer to die, as the men do?

  3. My worlds are always my favorite, I think. I would love to live there, although it would probably restrict me and make me want to write about other worlds, in which case I wouldn’t be content anymore. Oh, well. Such is the paradox.

    Oh, you were talking about your worlds! Yeah, they’re cool too. (I haven’t read them yet, though.)

  4. Good post! I hadn’t thought about my own worlds. If you lived in one of your own worlds, in theory you’d know how to avoid all the danger.
