If you could move into any fantasy land, movie world, book realm, where would it be and why?
Part of the time, I’d live in Star Trek to cruise the stars, to meet strangers from all planets. The rest of the time I’d live in Fantasy Island, and I’d get to experience all the fantasies that each visitor would. Living vicariously through them.
If memory serves me correctly, I think the place is Narnia (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) I remember the basic plot of the story, but more fondly, I remember as a child thinking that it would be a neat place to live. I can’t remember why, and now it seems Rubes will need to stop at the library to pick up a book from his youth again. I’ve recently re-read a few of the Great Brain books, as well as The Mad Scientists’ Club, for nostalgia.
No contest, the land of “The Neverending Story” (see the book by Michael Ende, not the movie.) The hero of the story gets to create his own reality, and the landscapes and characters are amazing in their diversity! Michael Ende’s imagination is tremendous.
I think City from the Matrix would be kinda cool. But only if I could bend spoons. Except that there is no spoon. Or the world in Neuromancer. Or the Forgotten Realms. Those would be nice to visit, but not to stay.
I’d also like to live in the Star Trek universe. Just think of it–no money, so no pressure to make money, no need to cook or clean unless you really want to, instantly fashionable clothing (courtesy of your replicator), and endless possibilities for travel. Just sit around and do whatever you want. Yep, I like that.
So may to choose from. But right now I wish I could live in the world of the Gunslinger from The Dark Tower series. There I would have many adventures, with a horse and possibly a trained hawk. My kind of place.
