Day 4: Surviving Fictional Worlds & Giveaways
Today we’ll talk about surviving fictional worlds. We all know that sometimes, the worlds we love in fiction can be dangerous. Which fictional worlds would you want to live in? Which worlds do you never want to dive into? Which worlds are you content to stay behind the glass, so to speak, rather than wishing to dive through the page? And once you get there, what would you do?
I’m a sci/fi fantasy girl (read: big, big nerd), so you’d have trouble keeping me away from places like Narnia and Gallifrey. I’ve recently been fielding random questions from my four-year-old about magic, superpowers, and why we don’t have them in real life, so I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. You can pop me into a world with magic any day of the week (who knows? maybe I live in one now . . .), and I bet my son would gladly come along for the adventure. Hogwarts? Done. Oz? You betcha. Oh, but ain’t no way I’m going to Westeros. You can’t make me.
