This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is all about the fictional items I wish I could have. I know this is going to be a hard one to narrow down, so let’s get started!
1. An invisibility cloak from Harry Potter
Nothing would be better than being able to disappear from society but still being able to participate in a way. I could people watch without interruption and curl up in my favorite chair for hours without being disturbed — unless people tried to sit on me, now that would be a problem. I could definitely pull some Fred and George Weasley worthy pranks with this thing on.
2. Flying carpet from 1,001 Nights
While I would love to have a broomstick, I’m slightly afraid of heights and get rather queasy rather quickly. That’s why I feel it would be better for me to have a flying carpet to help me travel quickly from place to place and avoid traffic and people at the same time. It’s the best of all the worlds!
3. Steles from The Mortal Instruments
I would love to be able to instantly heal, become stronger, stealthier — anything that runes can do for Shadowhunters. It would be absolutely amazing to be able to enhance myself by the swish of a Stele.
4. Magic wands from Harry Potter (again)
Who doesn’t want to be able to Accio a book closer to them or magic a light on by the flick of a wrist? Magic wands would make life just that much easier and that much more exciting.
5. Time machines from The Time Machine (by H.G. Wells)
For all the big and little mistakes in life, I have to believe that a time machine would fix most, if not all, of my problems.
If you could have any fictional thing in real life, what would it be? Let me know in the comments below.
