Would You Rather Fictional Grab-Bag Edition

Cordy over at Any Merry Little Thought has brought back one of her tags
and this just seemed to cute to pass up.

Would you rather, be a tenant of Mr. Darcy or Mr. Knightley?

- Ohhh...Uhhhmmm....Knightley, I think. I love Pemberly so much though and I would love to have Georgiana as a sister-in-law, but Mr. Knightley didn't have as much emotional baggage either. Ok, Mr.Knightley!

Would you rather spend a day in the 100 Acre Wood or Neverland?

- 100 Acre Wood, definitely. I love Peter Pan, but I've been terrified of Captain Hook since I saw Dustin Hoffman's portrayal in Hook (1992). I mean that man traumatized me as a child and I still have nightmares! The 100 Acre Wood is a little safer. I want to live next door to Piglet.

Would you rather attend a tea party with the Mad Hatter and company or meet the Wizard of Oz?

- Meet the Wizard of Oz.

Would you rather spend a summer at Netherfield with Jane and Mr. Bingley, or at Hamley Hall with Squire Hamley?

- I'm only associated with Pride and Prejudice, (my Jane Austin knowledge is very limited) so I'll have to say Netherfield with Jane and Mr. Bingley. They're so cute!

Would you rather be "rescued" by Gilbert Blythe or Colonel Brandon?

- (This is as bad as the first question)...Gilbert was such a sweetheart, but Brandon also had money...I'll have to say Gilbert Blythe on this one.

Would you rather marry Laurie or John Brooke?

- John Brooke. I always found Laurie annoying.

Would you rather have to participate in a skirmish as a member of Robin Hood's Merry Men, or as a member of the Musketeers?

- I've wanted to be a member of the Musketeers ever since I saw the 1993 film, The Three Musketeers when I was 8 or 9. 

Would you rather have a jolly holiday in a chalk painting or enjoy a tea party on the ceiling with Uncle Albert?

- Holiday in the chalk painting.

Would you rather have to chaperone, through their entire courting experience, Lydia Bennet or Anne De Bourgh?

- Lydia didn't really have a courtship, but I don't think Anne De Bourgh would be that bad.

Would you rather marry Mr. Wickham or Mr. Elton?

- I have no idea who Mr. Elton is, so Mr. Wickham.

Would you rather spend the rest of your life in Middle Earth (starting from the time of the journey of the ring), or Narnia (starting from the time of the Pevensie's first visit)?

- Narnia! Always Narnia!


  1. What fun, I read your post and then went immediately to Cordy's to get the questions to answer.

    1. The tag game is strong right now on Blogger. I'm going to be making one soon too.

  2. I'm so glad you filled out the tag!! :D

    Hamley Hall is actually a reference to "Wives and Daughters" by Elizabeth Gaskell. And if you like Austen's books you might like Gaskell. Molly, the main character in W&D, reminds many people of Anne Elliot or Fanny Price from Austen's Persuasion and Mansfield Park. But that's only if you're looking for reading. :) And Mr. Elton is from Austen's "Emma". That I would highly recommend for Emma and Mr. Knightley's conversations alone.

    Oh my stars, yes! Dustin Hoffman. Wowzers. I am with you there. Hahaha.

    The Musketeers from the '93 movie, that's such a great movie! That was a hard question for me because I just finished a little Musketeers kick. I guess I've just been loyal to Robin Hood for longer.

    And yes, John Brooke, all the way. Again, I'm sooooo with you. :)

    Again, thanks for doing the tag!! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    1. It was a fun tag!

      I'm actually not a big Austen or Gaskell fan. I've just never been able to get into classical literature. However, I have seen several movie versions of Emma and I especially loved the adaption with Romala Garai.

      I still can't even look at pictures of him as Hook freaking out!

      I read The Three Musketeers a few years ago and just fell in love with it. Then I saw the BBC show, The Musketeers which was excellent!

      John Brooke was so underrated! He always helped the March family without even being asked and plus he had to put up with Laurie on a daily basis, which must have been exhausting.

  3. For the longest time I was scared of Dustin Hoffman's Hook, too! I haven't seen that movie in awhile, so I might still be...

    1. I can't bring myself to watch the movie or even see pictures of him in costume. He completely traumatize me.

  4. I'm not fan of Laurie either, I guess movies romantize him too much. Narnia for me as well.

    Have a lovely day.

    1. I've never read the book, but every movie version of Laurie I've seen, he's just come off as too annoying.

  5. Great answers! Laurie is a bit annoying.


Thank you for your comments : )

I love getting comments, long or short, whether you agree with me or not. .

Just be kind. I don't tolerate any rudeness at all. So just be careful with what you write and how you write it.
