Help from fictional characters
For some time, I've seen these brilliant tags pop up on Instagram. Whether or not I'm tagged, I mull over many of them in my head. And I've decided they're just too good to keep there. So up they go on the blog, to see if I can get nods of agreement, and suggestions of more.
The questions are simple. Which fictional characters would you ask for help in the following situations? If you're keen to delve into my choices, you can follow the links to see where they come from. This time round, I haven't elaborated on any of them, as I hope they should speak for themselves. Here goes.
For help choosing an outfit
Diana Barry or Scarlett O'Hara
Someone to cheer you up
Ron Weasley, Pollyanna
You want to rob a bank
Oops, you get caught. Who will help you out?
You need a book recommendation. Who will you ask?
Jo March, Matilda
You need dating advice
Mr George Knightley (but definitely not Emma Woodhouse)
You need help with studies
You're super sick and need someone to take care of you
Dr Gilbert Blythe
Bad guys are after you. Who will help you get rid of them?
Samwise Gamgee, Sam Weller, Neville Longbottom
You need a shoulder to cry on
Scorpius Malfoy, Alyosha Karamazov, Agnes Wickfield
So those are mine, and the natural question to follow is who would yours be? Please feel free to share them in the comments, or if you do a blog post of your own, leave us the link, as I'd love to read them. Have fun thinking.
