Daily Prompt: Fictional Intruder
Go down the rabbit hole with Alice; play quidditch with Harry Potter; float down the river with Huck Finn …… If you could choose three fictional events or adventures to experience yourself, what would they be?
This is the first time I have done a daily prompt. Since I read so much fiction, though, I thought it would be a wonderful opportunity. I have so many favorite characters in fiction, it is hard to choose. However, here are three of my favorites.
I would want to be Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. I love the three friends she made, the munchkins she met, and the fact that she was able to kill the wicked witch. I recently read the book for the first time after seeing the movie about a million times since I was five years old. The book was crazy different, but I still liked it. However, I remember the first time I saw the movie in color. Our neighbor across the street got a new color television that year and invited me over to see The Wizard of Oz in color! I was really excited, but that was the first year I ever felt so scared of the wicked witch. The green color of her gave me nightmares for days. Come to think of it, my kids have never liked her either. 😉
My second favorite character in fiction is Tom Sawyer. I loved reading that book. I didn’t get through all of Huckleberry Finn, though. I just didn’t like the way that book was written compared to Tom Sawyer for some reason. Anyway, Tom Sawyer is quite a character. He is very mischievious and resourceful. The way he gets the other kids to finish whitewashing the fence is clever. I wouldn’t want my kids to weasel their way out of punishments like him, but you have to admit he’s pretty smart! What I loved about him the most was the way he changed and grew in the book. That’s what hooks me into remembering fictional characters.
My third favorite character would be Charlotte in Charlotte’s Web. I love the way she is so encouraging to Wilbur. She helps him see reality in a kind way. She loves him and helps him grow up. I saw the newer animated version with Julia Roberts for the first time this year from about the middle of the movie one day when I was channel surfing. Now I’d like to see it from the beginning. She has such a lovely voice which reminds me so much of the original movie version.
And that’s all for today folks! Have a lovely day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
