Day 8: Something that you always think, "What if..." about.


A brand new week brings seven brand new topics! I have a lot of "What if" 's in my mind, but there's one that I simply love to daydream about. Allow me to share it with you guys. :)

Thank you for reading this post, and I hope you'd read the following days' topics. :)
Enjoy reading!

Something That I Always Think, "What If..." About

What if books' worlds were real?

You heard me: what if books' worlds were real? Wouldn't it be fascinating if you could enter the world of detective Sherlock Holmes, solving mysteries as his second Dr. Watson? Or cast and learn magic alongside Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley in Hogwarts? You could watch the stars with Bella Swan or dash away in the thickets with Katniss Everdeen. A different book unfolds a far different world.

I've recently read An Author's Odyssey, which tells the story of a pair of twins whom set out on an adventure in—guess what?—their books! They were able to enter via the use of a potion which opens a portal into the book's dimension. Everything they've imagined, everything they've written, they were able to live it. If I had a chance to enter my world, I would definitely accept it. Just think of everything you could experience! A few drops of portal potion and voila!

If books' worlds were real, you could witness the adventures of each book through their eyes instead of your mind. To stroll the sprawling landscape of the world, to battle your hearts out against the villains, to cry uncontrollably feel the sorrow over the deaths of your favorite characters. But out of all that, the best thing that could happen with your presence is altering the story entirely. You could build a new tale from within the story itself. Just make sure you don't make your life hard, okay? ;)

Imagine the characters you've written with your soul in a book. Now imagine the characters you've written with your soul shaking your hands and saying, "Hi! It's nice to meet a friendly face around here." I would freak out (in a good way) if I met my characters. And to talk with them... *faints* And for them to touch me... *dies* But of course, it can't be just about meeting the good characters. Don't leave out the villains, too. They might fry your bottoms or kill you should you irritate them!

Journeying through a book is simply amazing; think of all the possibilities! If only it were true. :/ The world of literature is diverse, each unique in its way. Mmm, maybe one day someone might craft a portal potion. For now, though, living the adventures through my mind is satisfying enough. Anyway, I think I'll venture a book right now—no, through my imagination, silly!


How interesting would it be for you if books' worlds were real? What are your "What if" 's that lingers in your mind? Let me know!

  1. My "What If" would be what if animals could talk? I know parrots can repeat words, phrases, or sentences that other people say, but What If all animals could talk? What would cats and dogs say to their owners? Imagine listening in on a social conversation with a pod of dolphins, or the deep call of a Blue Whale only to understand what it said from miles away.

    1. I'd love to know what my sugar glider says every time she barks. Maybe then I can tend to what she actually needs. :P

    2. Though the world might end up being a noisy place, since that also includes insects, and there trillions of insects :(

    3. Besides, this world already has enough talking animals... :v
