Top Five Worlds I Would Never Want to Live In…
1. The Hunger Games
For obvious reasons, right? Even though I am now too old to take part in the Reaping, it would still be a shit place to live because you’d have to watch children fight each other to the death. These would probably be people that you know, considering how small the districts are. And I would probably be in a poorer district, so that would also suck.
Again, I’m too old to actually be unwound, but this world is so dark and horrible and …. ugh. In case you didn’t know, it’s a world in which parents can give up their teenagers if they don’t want them, and the teenagers will be unwound, meaning every single body part would be put into other people’s bodies. Parts of the teenager would be in hundreds of people who needed transplants or new limbs. It’s creepy.
3. The Knife of Never Letting Go
While I am a curious person, I would hate to hear what men are thinking all the time.
4. All Our Yesterdays
Because there would be timey-wimey stuff happening and that’s never good, is it? All of history could collapse. This is why they invented Timelocks.
5. Blood Red Road
Because it’s a boiling hot, dusty, crime-filled world and while I love reading about it, it’s not somewhere I would want to live.
… and Five That I Would
And because I couldn’t pick ten places that I wouldn’t want to live, here are five worlds that I would love to live in. At least for a day.
1. Dark Life
While I bloody hate deep water and the ocean, I think this whole world is weirdly beautiful, and I wouldn’t mind living in it. You know, if I was forced to.
2. Harry Potter
*whispers* I already do live in this world, I’m just not supposed to tell you Muggles.
3. Pivot Point
Again, if this was forced upon me, it wouldn’t be too bad. I would quite like to have the ability to turn invisible, enhance my memory, learn languages easily, not have to sleep… Superpowers would be amazing.
Just for a while, and only if I got a cool power. And perhaps my actions should be erased once I return to my own world, because I might not get up to the nicest things while I’m there.
5. Women of the Otherworld
I want to be a half-demon.
