Personal: Facts About Me ETC

My Fictional Crew

Ever sat and imagined who would be what from each of your favourite fandoms? Well, that’s what I did just a few nights ago. This ‘tag’/challenge may have been thought up before but I’ve got no knowledge of any in existence – having merely thought of the idea out of boredom to begin with. It can be completed by any of you and I’d more than love for you all to post a link to your blog posts, once posted on your own blogs, dictating your own fictional crew 😉

Rule: Because there’s only ONE > Each character must belong to a different fandom/movie/book/TV show!

Day Five: Hook ’Em with a Quote

quote.PNG

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” 

 

This quote taken from the novel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling and spoken by Michael Gambon in his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in the movie adaptation will forever be one of my most favourite quotes.

true story Isn’t it though? In an article which I wrote for The Nerd Daily ‘The Reality of Fiction‘, I spoke about how important fiction is to each and every one of us. The Reality of Fiction looks also at how the stories we read and watch on screen influence our reality and our lives. The do this because despite how many of them are filled with fantastical elements that do not exist in this world we live in… they’re real. To us, the stories we enjoy are real and therefore, as Dumbledore states is true.

My reality, however, will forever remain a mix of the world which I live in and those which I wish I could. What can I say, I’m a strong believer of fantasy being the best type of reality.

ah br

An issue that I came across whilst writing up my notes for this book review was identifying the correct year in which this book was published. Online the publication date varies between 2005-2007 and the copy of the book which I own also stated that the novel was first published in 2006, whilst the edition itself was published in 2007.

The 280 paged novel follows teenager Ellie Harrison as she enrolls at Avalon High where she discovers that the legends surrounding the Once and Future King, Arthur Pendragon, may not be just a myth but true and that she is to play a crucial roll in this modern day tale of the reincarnated figures that define medieval mythology.
