Only In Fiction...

Been reading a lot more lately. Got me to thinking how silly some things are. Only in fiction (movies or books) can a character go through crazy ordeals and still be perfect. Perfect in appearance, perfect in health... Someone could have fallen from the top of a mountain, hitting their head several times and BAM they wake up and remember everything... RIGHT. In reality, they may not even wake up. If they do, they will be worse for wear then what is portrayed in fiction. Yeah we (the audience) eat that stuff up... *sigh* Even JEALOUS sometimes... I think I get jealous the most over the health thing.... These characters can have what have you happen to them btu wake up and we.. they are like this

I used to read a lot of Nancy Drew as a kid, and was always intrigued by the fact that she never aged, always had the perfect boyfriend who always said the perfect things to her, and who always had the skills to get out of any jam.

I read a bit of Nancy Drew as a child. My mom loved the books and had them stashed away for a long time. She also had the Hardy Boys and the Boxtrot? I can't remember exactly what the title of that series was exactly...

@ScribbledAdNauseum The Boxcar Children. I loved those too. As well as The Babysitter's Club. Nancy was my favorite though. I read her all the time. I even found a book at the library earlier today, but didn't get it, because I have plenty to read still. Nice to know it'll be there when I go back though :)

That's why we are so enticed by the fictional world. It's so intriguing how perfect they are.

@ScribbledAdNauseum That's right. The fictional world is very creative that way.

You know a lot of times truth can be stranger than fiction, but I hear you.

That is why it is called fiction, it is unlikely to happen in real life. Anyway, we watch and read these fiction and allow these stories to take us as far away from reality as possible.

MMm, perhaps, but it's still be fiction without the far fetched concepts methinks.

Reading fiction can be frustrating at times because the plot may require things to happen in a way the reader knows wouldn't happen in real life.

But that's what fiction is. A chance to escape into a magical world.:) But I think I get you ---- I had this thing about the heroines being so so perfect and beautiful. So in my Mills and Boon reading days, I enjoyed Betty Neels most of all becoz her heroines were like real people:) May I know what books you are reading?

That is why people need fiction to kinda fulfill their lives.It is a land of imagination and fantasy.Unreal as it is but we audience all buy it somehow.That is why movies are there,that is why books are there and that,my friend,can make us be living in a dream for some time.So worry no more and jealous no more,just totally indulge yourself in it.

We want an escape from reality that's why we like it. But sometimes fiction can get too stupid at times.
