Monday, March 14th/ If You Were a Fictional Character
“March 14 is, in fact, Pi Day, but I couldn’t think of how to mix books with math (except for how much money we spend on them). But then I got to thinking of smart characters, and our favorite geeky and nerdy characters (not a bad thing to be), and then I went back to this idea: being an actual fictional character. Perhaps it’s you being one of your favorite fictional characters; what would life be like? Or maybe create a persona or alter ego of yourself based off fictional characters, or making yourself a fictional character to be with or defeat other fictional characters. Let your imagination run wild.”
(This seemed like a fun exercise to do)
If I was a fictional character I would exist in a fantasy world. An older, wiser woman I would be covered in scars from my glory days as a royal bodyguard. I would live deep within the forest, in a house protected by magic and built into a large tree. I would spend my days crafting powerful weapons and armour for young intrepid heroes who would seek me out for help on their quests.
I would have five brave daughters all embroiled in various adventures throughout the kingdom, except my youngest who would be learning the craft from me.
One day a band of adventurers would tempt me into joining them on a quest to find a legendary weapon, before it falls into the clutches of an evil wizard king. And so my adventures would begin again…
