I have been tagged by Jag at From a Jagged Inkwell! This will be fun.
1. If the main villain of your favorite book/movie/TV series showed up
on your front doorstep, what would you do? (Explain who it is first...)
Since it's super hard for me to pick just one favorite book/movie, and Sauron isn't an option (how's a giant eye going to show up on my doorstep?), I'll go with the villain from the book I'm reading now: Hri Sora, the Dragonwitch, from Starflower and Dragonwitch by Anne Elisabeth Stengl.
If the Dragonwitch showed up on my doorstep, my first reaction would probably be to scream. Loudly. Then I'd run for my life, since fighting her would most likely mean getting killed.
2. Now supposing the heroes opposite this villain showed up just after your exchange. What would you do then?
Bard Eanrin and Dame Imraldera showing up to save the day? I'd undoubtedly stop running, first of all. I'd stammer a hello, but most likely, I'd be pretty much speechless for several minutes because I'd be trying to get past the fact that: oh my pumpernickel, I'm talking to BARD EANRIN and DAME IMRALDERA! Bard Eanrin! And Imraldera! Once I'd recovered my powers of speech and the Dragonwitch was gone, I'd thank them several times and probably invite them into my house for something to drink (and possibly eat as well) so I could hopefully talk to them for a bit before they moved on.
3. So... moving on, the heroes defeat the villain (with some help from
you, of course- whatever it may be. ;) But the next day, you're just
walking along, minding your own business, when you suddenly come across
the same villain... who is now lying in the dust severely wounded and
unconscious. What do you do?
Is Imraldera still around? Assuming she was, I'd go find her and Eanrin, since they'd know how to take care of her a lot better than I would.
4. Now his minions show up and kidnap both you and him and take you to
their universe (or version of your universe, whatever it happens to be.)
Intense terror. And whatever part of me wasn't intensely terrified would probably be thinking something along these lines: Oh my pumpernickel. I've got to be dreaming. Except I'm not. I'm really in Goldstone Wood world. I'd look for a chance to escape as well and hopefully I'd find my way into the Wood.
5. Your fantastic heroes have arrived to rescue you- but now you're
faced with a choice. The villain, out of gratitude for your earlier
help, (assuming you actually did help him when he was wounded) has
offered you a chance to travel back to your own universe. However, the
heroes warn you not to trust him. The only other way for you to get back
home is to travel with the heroes on a long and dangerous journey...
and there's no guarantee that you'll survive.
What. Do. You. Do.
A chance to travel with Bard Eanrin and Dame Imraldera? Is this even a question? I'd go with them, without a doubt. Dangerous or not, I'd want to see as much of their world (especially the Haven and Rudiobus) and meet as many people as possible before I had to go home. Maybe I could even manage to stick around long enough to be there for part of one of the books! Talk about awesome!
And now to tag other people! I tag:
I'm also feeling rather tempted to write a fanfiction on this now. We'll see if I can find time to do that sometime.
