This week's question courtesy of Parajunkee (and Alison's!) Follow Friday is:
Q: It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?
I'm going to go ahead and place the sugary caveat that there will not be any terribly unpleasant sides to the places I choose. For instance, I would love love love to visit Hogwarts and Gringotts, but I could really do without Voldemort and Bellatrix (although she is fierce, but in a way I wouldn't want to mess with). I absolutely love schools, so you could happily toss in a visit to St.Vladimir's to see all of the training that goes on there, too. And, erm, Dimitri. Rose would just probably kick my butt.
A visit to Le Cirque des Rêves would probably be at the top of my list at the present. I could probably spend a year in there visiting the ice maze and hopping clouds and still not experience everything that I'd like to. The description inherent in that book (The Night Circus) is astounding and would make for an incredible reality.
I'd also like to check out the Dauntless compound as it was before the end of Divergent. I have a feeling that when things weren't insanely cut-throat there that it was probably quite fascinating. I might have a problem entering the building, though, as I'm afraid of heights.
And because I like this question and want to write more but am sleepy, here's a list:
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone: Although Prague is quite real, the way Karou experiences it is wholly unique.
- The Pledge: Still sugary caveating here, I'm really curious to see what it's like to be in a society where everything is limited by language. It's such a crazily fascinating idea.
- White Cat/Red Glove: This incredibly constructed world is so interesting to me. I wouldn't like having to wear gloves all of the time, but I'd probably like to see how the world would work given the circumstances.
