Would You Rather Fictional Grab-bag Edition

I saw this tag Ivy did that Cordy created and I thought it looked super fun.

Would you rather, be a tenant of Mr. Darcy or Mr. Knightley?
Mr. Knightly, he is less intimidating.
 
Would you rather spend a day in the 100 Acre Wood or Neverland?
100 Acre Wood. I’m about to metaphorically, because there are some bbc radio dramas of Winnie the Pooh, and I need something soothing to listen to.
 
Would you rather attend a tea party with the Mad Hatter and company or meet the Wizard of Oz?
The Mad Hatter, that would be funny. I’m not a big Wizard of Oz person.
 
Would you rather spend a summer at Netherfield with Jane and Mr. Bingley, or at Hamley Hall with Squire Hamley?
Netherfield and Jane and Bingley, Hamley Hall is only worthwhile if Roger were there and single, and well, he’s taken.
 
Would you rather be “rescued” by Gilbert Blythe or Colonel Brandon?
Gilbert, can’t stand Colonel Hum Drum. Unless he was played, as he should have been by Matthew McFayden. But still, Gilbert.

Would you rather marry Laurie or John Brooke?
Laurie, if he’d grown up as he should. People, growing up doesn’t mean becoming staid and boring. That isn’t how Laurie really would have grown up, he’d have kept his personality and added some sense of responsibility not turned into a boring, sanctimonious prick. John Brooke is underrated. But I tend to like the teasing guys.

Would you rather have to participate in a skirmish as a member of Robin Hood’s Merry Men, or as a member of the Musketeers?
Robin Hood’s Merry Men. I rather think they had better morals (yes, I realized this is ironic coming after my above comments).

Would you rather have a jolly holiday in a chalk painting or enjoy a tea party on the ceiling with Uncle Albert?
Not sure what this reference is from, but holiday.

Would you rather have to chaperone, through their entire courting experience, Lydia Bennet or Anne De Bourgh?
Anne De Bourgh, she’s quiet and not interfering, basically the opposite of Lydia. Can you imagine how annoying Lydia would be, not to mention the telling at the top of her voice of anything embarrassing?

Would you rather marry Mr. Wickham or Mr. Elton?
Mr. Elton. I think I could whip him into some shape. Wickham would just continually cheat.

Would you rather spend the rest of your life in Middle Earth (starting from the time of the journey of the ring), or Narnia (starting from the time of the Pevensie’s first visit)?
Narnia, Narnia all the way! And marry Tirian. And change the entire course of the last book starting with banning all primates from Narnia or uninventing them or something.

    Great answers! The holiday in the chalk painting and tea with Uncle Albert are from Mary Poppins.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the tag, Livia. 😀

    “Hamley Hall is only worthwhile if Roger were there and single, and well, he’s taken.” I had to laugh at that. It’s the problem I face when trying to choose what fictional hero I’d marry when asked in tags, because I usually don’t want to break up the couples as they’ve been written. Haha.

      Well, when asked directly, it I think it feels like they are single, but in that question, it felt like I was hopping in the story for a visit so to speak.

    • Livia Rose

      Yeah, I think a couple of the other people who answered choose neither, at least the Wickham/Elton one.

    I’m not fan of the Wizard of Oz either but not a fan of the Mad Hatter either. What mad choices!

    ‘teasing guys’ sounds fun. I like that you can whip Mr. Elton into shape. Honestly, someone needs to. Fun answers.

    Have a lovely day.

      I was thinking of the animated Disney Mad Hatter, during that half-birthday scene, that is the only knowledge I have. I’m not sure how far I made it through the book or if I skimmed or what. I guess if I’d seen a live-action movie I might be more disturbed, although I thought it was Johnny Depp. I just don’t love Wizard of Oz, and I feel I know that one slightly more, since I did a ballet of that when small.

      I think I could, I could deal with him, I think he could change, I’d deal with his pride over Wickham’s licentiousness any day. However, I realized as I was about to type out pompous clergyman that that applied more to Mr. Collins, and what a much harder choice between Wickham and Mr. Collins? EW!

      Thanks, I thought it was fun, and it was fun to read everyone else’s choices. Apparently Laurie is annoying to a lot of people.
