Five Literary Inventions I Wish Were Real

I'm convinced my life would be so much easier with the following:

1. The Invisibility Cloak from Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

Think of the sneaking around you can do! Be careful of eavesdropping though, sometimes you don't want to hear what others really think of you (especially Professor Snape).

2. Pixie Dust from Peter Pan and Wendy.

Imagine having the ability to fly on your own, without aid from a broomstick or a magic carpet!
Rush hour traffic? Not for you. Late for a date? No worries. Need to get to class before the bell rings? Easy peasy.

3. The Everlasting Gobstopper from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

It's candy. No explanation needed.

4. The Blade from The Subtle Knife.

Slice through parallel universes and bend the space/time continuum? Sure, okay. Plus, I bet you can make a salad in seconds.

5. Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.

Okay, he's not technically an invention, but he is made up and totally awesome. And since it's my blog, I'll bloody well put him here if I want. And yes, I want Mr. Darcy.

I can't choose just one so I'll say the entire Harry Potter world. Talk about a blast!
Awesome post, as usual. :D

Yes, especially butter beer! Thanks, Jackie.

- The ability to *BAMF!* like Nightcrawler. I know he's not literature, but still.

- A telepathic green dragon named Kilenth.

I'll think of more when I'm not cooking dinner. :-)

I think I'd like that chewing gum that tastes like a full meal (from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

Fun post, btw. :)

Dude, you picked all the best ones!! Well, I think you can have Darcy, but I insist on having all the other ACTUAL inventions ;D

Lee Tyler said...

Ha, ha! Thanks for the Monday morning laugh. I would most definitely pick Mr. Darcy. Can I live in another novel where he exists in two worlds? Please? This is priceless and I'm sharing!

Bethany Myers said...

You guys are the tops! Thanks for commenting and sharing.

Definitely any-flavor beans, though I'd get first dibs on picking out the good ones!

I'd like to order a Tardis, sonic screwdriver (a version that WORKS on wood, please!), flying carpet, wands (HP or otherwise), and I'll fight you for Mr. Darcy (I'm sure my hubby won't mind!)
