Sometimes, I get so into a particular book or movie that I almost manage to forget that the fictional things and people I’m reading about aren’t actually real. It’s REALLY disappointing when I snap out of that, as you might imagine. But think about how much cooler our world would be if the things from other people’s imaginations came to life. I mean, how amazing would it be if Hogwarts was really a school? Or if mermaids like Ariel were really in the ocean?
Reddit users think about that as well, unsurprisingly. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Ask Reddit thread on fictional things we wish were real, so much so that I had to share it with you guys. Warning: this might make you a little depressed because, reality. Here are 15 fictional things from movies and books that we wish were real:
Krabby PattiesQEDomelets: Krabby Patties. They look delectable. I don't even know what these really are, but they DO look very yummy.
HogwartsSarahTheBrave: Hogwarts, because magic. Um, Hogwarts because EVERYTHING.
Pokemonjolsiphur: Pokemon. So I can have a bunch of friends to go on adventures with. Also, guys, they would be SO CUTE.
Pizza PlanetHeizenburge: PIZZA PLANET. And not that crappy one at Universal Studios or whatever. technobarry: an actual planet made of pizza, better yet. damn, now i'm hungry. Yes to both of these things. In case you don't remember, Pizza Planet is the restaurant from Toy Story, and I would like to go to there. Also, a REAL planet made of pizza would be incredible.
Jurrasic Parkcreed_bratton_: Jurassic Park (but without the mishaps of course) This would be SO awesome. If it could always go perfectly, not like the movie at all.
The Things You Make Upjufakrn: All those arguments I win in my head. Ah, yes. That would be extremely satisfying. Source: ShutterStock
Characters From Books and MoviesNiceGuyYou_NeverMet: I really want to hangout with the characters from some of my favorite books & video games. How amazing would it be to hang out with Katniss or Peeta (I guess we can include Gale)? Or Hermione, Harry and Ron? Or, I don't know, any fictional character ever. Ugh, why can't they be real?
Inexpensive College TuitionSpoodyLuv: A reasonably affordable college education. That would be the dream, huh? Source: ShutterStock
DragonsHowler452: Dragons that we can tame. The problem is, I can see governments using them as weapons of mass destruction, or kill them all off just because they can be considered dangerous. If dragons could be nice, and not kill us, it would be pretty incredible to just have them alive, you know? Source: ShutterStock
Something From Hitchkiers Guide To The GalaxySavagechimp106: The thing in Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy that detects what you're craving and makes it for you. I don't even know what that is or what it's called, but it sounds like the best thing.
Teleportation DeviceStarBP: Teleportation device, because I could go anywhere I wanted to without spending any money or travel time. Yes. This would be amazing. Why isn't this a thing? Source: ShutterStock
The Holodeck from Star Trekbeernerd: The holodeck from Star Trek. You wish you could go to Hogwarts? Done. Want to cut your boss in half with a lightsaber? No sweat. Want to bang the hot chick you've been creeping on for months? Have at it. I've never watched Star Trek, so I don't know what this is, but honestly it sounds perfect.
LightsabersTravisDanielWilliams: Lightsabers.... Because they're lightsabers. Yeah, I mean... basically.
A Time Machinealphajohnx: Time machines. Can't think of anything else I would want more than a time machine Um, obviously. Who wouldn't want to travel back in time without all of the disasters that usually happen in the movies? Source: ShutterStock
Peacedz1087: Peace. I'd rather spend my life loving than fighting wars. For real, though. Source: ShutterStock
Which of these fictional things do you wish was real the most? Which do you disagree with? What did we forget? Tell me in the comments!
