TCWT Blog Chain: Living it Up in Fiction

Yes yes I know it’s late. I know I didn’t post last week — I have just been bombarded with homework lately. Sorry.

tcwt-3This month’s prompt is:

Which fictional world would you most like to be a part of, and what role do you think you would fulfil in it?

This is a tricky one — mainly because bad things tend to happen in fictional worlds, and I’m too wimpy to be a hero. I’ve heard that saying about ‘some people have greatness thrust upon them’ before, and let me tell you, it’s a lie. You have to be a great person before having the chance to be great thrown at you. You have to have the courage hidden inside you. Unfortunately, as a recent Zombie Run has taught me, I don’t have courage hidden inside me unless it’s so deeply hidden that you’d need one of those special trucks with winches to pull it out.

So, no dangerous worlds for me then — or at least a world in which I can be safe while everyone else does the dangerous stuff. That makes it pretty difficult to think of a world I could be part of — after all, any world with monsters in it is out.

I have it! (NB: I am writing this as I think, in case you haven’t noticed.)

I would live in LA Weatherly’s Angel. I wouldn’t be one of the Angel Killers because I am a wimp who won’t touch a gun, but it would be cool to be one of the angel-worshippers to some extent. I mean, sure, you end up with cancer or some other awful disease, but you live a life full of meaning, in a society where everyone works together and cares for each other, where the hatred that humans seem to need to feel is focused onto the almost mythical AKs. It’s probably a pretty sweet life until you become ill. Even better, if you’re lucky and have a rubbish aura, you don’t get fed off! That would be my mission in life — to have a rubbish aura so the angels didn’t feed. Then I’d be able to hang around a nice group of people, living my life in safety and bettering what we all believed was the greater good, until one day the angels would (SPOILER) be defeated, hopefully near where I lived so that I could just happen across the beautiful half-angel Seb and steal his heart (END OF SPOILERS) and life would be dandy.

In short, I would live in any fictional world that would give me a no higher than average chance of dying.

    • Thanks 🙂 I like to think avoiding death is always a good way to go… which is why I write about death and murder all the time, of course… *shifty eyes* *tries to high five* *misses*
