RTW: Reincarnation and Me

Road Trip Wednesday is a blog carnival, where YA Highway’s contributors and readers post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s take on the topic.

Here's this week's prompt: If you could be reincarnated as any fictional character, which would it be?

Holy crap! I can't even begin to imagine all the possibilities. There are so many characters I love and admire, choosing one just doesn't seem fair. I thought maybe a paranormal character, like a vampire or werewolf, but I really don't want to live forever and have no desire whatsoever to be that I chose Sarah from Labyrinth. Yes, the one created by Jim Henson. Now before you tell me that it doesn't count because it's a movie, let me tell that this is in fact also a book. There's actually a couple of books based on the movie. I LOVE this story. The idea of traveling to a different world and meeting the Goblin King, it's something I would have so much fun experiencing. All the adventures and characters you get to meet. I guess it's more the little girl in me that wants this. I was eleven when I first watched Labryinth and began my obsession. I might even change my mind and stay behind with the Goblin King, you never know.

I have to tell you, I could list like twenty more characters I'd love to be reincarnated as, but I won't bore you too much. What about you guys, any characters out there you would switch places with in a heartbeat?


  1. Oh that sounds fun, almost Alice in Wonderland esk. I have no idea who I would want to be, I'll have to think about that one a bit :)

  2. Since the Goblin King is one of my fictional character crushes, I strongly approve of your choice in Sarah. It takes a strong girl to resist that charm.

    The book series I'm working on now involves a girl traveling to another world and eventually meeting some good-looking guys. If they turn out as awesome as the Goblin King (which I'm pretty sure they will), I've got a best-seller!

  3. I haven't read/watched Labyrinth but now feel like I totally need to! Traveling to different worlds sounds awesome :)

  4. I could've easily listed twenty! So many good ones!

  5. I forgot about Labyrinth. Great movie. Also, I never got to say congratulations on the new baby girl! Congratulations!

  6. I don't care who I get reincarnated into as long as I actually get reincarnated!
