(Before I continue with this post I would want my readers to know that this post has a HUGE SPOILER from the trials of apollo so read at your own risk.)
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the winter. This prompt Has a book changed your life? appeared on my Gmail because of bloganuary and I just had to write it.
So, Before I write it down, just know that it didn’t exactly change my life but made me rethink many things.
Book- Trials of Apollo, The burning maze.
Author- Uncle rick or Rick Riordan
So as I was reading this book I came across Jason’s (SPOILER ALERT) death, and it hit me so hard that I remember spending all night reading the chapter again and again wondering if there was any fault in his death and if he would come back. I even couldn’t focus on school the other day and didn’t talk to my friends either. Now that may sound a bit over of me but the truth is that Jason was such a lovable and kind character and he had become very close to me.
That’s when it hit me. Jason didn’t even exist, neither did his girlfriend (I meant Piper, Not brick) nor his friends nor his family. He wasn’t even a part of reality. then how could he mean so much to me. That’s how it occurred to me how much a book meant to me. I had been living every moment of it happening and had been a part of every experience. A book means so much to me and I can’t live without it. Every character in it is a part of my life (Except Octavian though, to Tartarus with him ~no one cares about you, and I’ve never loved Nico more for letting you kill yourself without knowing)
Every book has a significant part in our life. You fall in love with people who don’t even exist and you end up caring for them. Even now while writing this post I remember Caligula and the smile of satisfaction on his when he drove the spear through Jason’s Shoulder. I wanted to strangle Caligula at that moment but well, He’s not real either.
Hi! I got the weirdest and yet most interesting idea today…What would it be like interviewing a FICTIONAL CHARACTER!
So my questions would be answered by its Fandom page.
So who would the lucky character be……………………….?
I’m thinking a crazy chocolate makers who’s factory is the biggest in the fandom world. The guy with a really good fashion sense and who is also a bit eccentric… I’m talking bout WILLY WONKA!
So here’s a Q AND A session with Willy Wonka From Charlie and chocolate factory *Trumpet sounds in the background*
Q- So, first tell me a bit about yourself.
A- Why hello there! My name is William James Willy Wonka… but you can call me Mr Wonka. I work as a chocolate maker and it has bought me much fame!
Q- What made you be a Chocolate maker?
A- I had a tough childhood, You see my parents were dentists and I wasn’t able to get any chocolate! Every Halloween all I got was a toothbrush and I had to wear this huge retainer for my teeth! One day, when I was about 15, I was having a heated argument with his father, when I screamed that I was moving out. My father didn’t believe me and shouted that he didn’t care. but I kept to my word and stayed with a friend. That’s when I started the factory with a small start.
Q- Tell us a bit about Oompa Loompas.
A- Oh they are fascinating creatures! Their skills in making chocolate far exceed mine. I just come up with the best ideas in the world and the best inventions! They are cooperative and don’t cost me much.
Q- How is life with Charlie now? You have given the factory now to him right?
A- Oh he is such a sweet and kind boy! My choice was the best I say. He has true potential to run my company! I’m still teaching him the ropes of a few things but soon he will be in my place!
Q- Well those other kids must be jealous right?
A- Veruca Salt was a spoilt child. She got everything she wanted and never learnt what true work is.
Mike Teavee was a child addicted to TV. He knew not the world of books and imagination!
Violet Beauregarde was a disrespectful self-absorbed gum chewer. She never knew the value of kindness or thinking about others and leaving her gum for once.
Augustus Gloop A child who didn’t stop eating… That’s all I need to say about him.
So you see all of them could never have got my factory! They need to mend their ways.
It’s right for them to be jealous.
Q- As we end this do you have any last quote or saying for us?
A- Yes! A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.
