If you can bring a literary character to life who would you choose? And why?If you can bring a literary character to life who would you choose? And why? Raja #questionnaire
And I would so steal him from you 😉
Gandalf, for his wisdom and magic.
Why choose when a well written character will come to life when you connect with them?
James Alexander Malcom McKenzie Fraser because he is a sexy motherfucker.
Jesus…so he can go oldschool testament on the world??
Davfyd DeBruce he’d come back, look around, and then say “these are the things you’ve done in my name? You murder, rape, and judge your way through 2000 years corrupting and abusing my message? All the profit hungry churches must burn. Feel the wrath of justice.”
@Maxwell Mmmmm yep. Especially I think the Pope. In his gowns of gold and silk, who makes others kneel and kiss his giant ruby and gold ring as he sits upon a throne of gold, while a third of the worlds people are starving as we speak…might get a talking to?
I’m actually not religious myself, but the thought still amuses me??
@Davfyd He will come back and he will judge the world! And religion is man made full of traditions and crap! All sorts of atrocities have been done in the name of God! ‘Church’ in its proper context refers to believers in Christ, not a building and not a religion!
He would take over the world.
It would probably be a better world…
Lestat de Lioncourt so he can FINALLY bring me over to immortality 😀
They are already loosely associated beings or cloaked ones
I would bring Kroppr the Battle Dragon to life, but hopefully I am a Sata or he would probably eat me.
Honestly I’d feel bad bringing any of my beloved to life in this shit show of a world. I’d rather they stay safe and happy in their books.
Truth! However… you’ve given me an idea for an answer 🙂
Safe and happy? What books are you reading? If you’re reading books about characters that are safe and happy, I’d think that would be a really boring read. 😛
@Mike – I would like it if just perhaps ONCE my favourite character ended up safe and happy… instead of dead. 🙁 I seem to have a knack for choosing doomed characters as my favourites.
Okay okay I get your point but most of the endings come out with a good resolution. Otherwise why would people read them? I understand the turmoil and all of the craziness during the book but most authors wrap it up nicely if it’s anything worth reading.
I love reading about people in other worlds. But I don’t think I would ever want to go to those words or experience those things. Sure, things usually come out okay in the end, but Harry Potter and his friends have MISERABLE lives. They experience horrors and tragedies that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Win or lose, I wouldn’t want to spend my childhood fighting Voldemort. Or Sauron. Or Moriarty. 😛
Oh I agree with you but my whole point was that I wouldn’t want to bring characters here and mainly for the reasons you said you wouldn’t want to go there. The characters wouldn’t interact in our world the same way as we interact in our own world.
I dunno. As bad as our world can be sometimes, at least we don’t have Sauron. 😛
@Mike haha truuuu
King Arthur. Because he’s supposed to save us…
The difference between King Arthur and Jesus is that King Arthur slays with a sword the “evil ones” like witches and such but Jesus heals the spirit so it is no longer necessary to use a sword against another. I say Jesus saves in reality. But I heard ya.
But I still loved your comment bc I figured you wanted a savior to be alive
Arthur is a Sleeping King archetype and while I believe Jesus existed, I believe he is no more or less the son of the gods than any of the rest of us. He, however, is a Sacrificed God archetype.
And Morgan Le Fay – before the tales were corrupted – was a healer and wise woman. Arthur would have no cause to slay her because she, and women like her, were the good guys.
Cthulhu. Think it would be fun times.
Because who wouldn’t want to be a mind-slave living in constant terror? 😛
@Mike If I am gonna be a mind slave I want it to be to some primal dark god over just being a slave to the man. LOL. At least it makes it story worthy.
@Brandon if you haven’t already, you should check out 14 by Peter Clines.
@Mike Since joining the writing community my list of TBR has grown quite a bit. But I will add it in there. I read the description, sounded interested. Normally, I am a traditional fantasy guy. Although, I definitely have a penchant for slipping into darkness. But it piqued my interest.
