I thought of this today as I was trekking through the forest, in really uncomfortable shoes. I was getting huge blisters and they hurt like hell. But, the whole way I was thinking – don’t complain. Just don’t complain. If Lilac LaRoux can do it, I can do it, too.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever done something just because a fictional character you like has done it?
It’s weird. It was like, in that moment, Lilac was a real person and I wanted to be as strong and as cool as her.
It got me thinking if this has ever happened before. Have I ever been influenced to do something by a fictional character? And it has!
In fact, a fictional character got me into book blogging. Anyone know Katy from the Lux series? Yup. Her. I didn’t even know this world existed until I read about her book obsession and how she writes reviews and vlogs and how there’s a whole community of book lovers like her. I just thought, is this real life? Did a bit a gloogling, and ta da! The rest is history.
So, has anyone else had this happen to them? Just think about it. Have you ever eaten something, just because a fictional character eats it? Because I certainly remember a few people eating only red apples, just cause Bella Swan eats red apples.
And on that lovely note – comment! Share your weird experiences! Let me know I’m not the only one who can become so involved in the lives of the make believe!
