Top 5 Wednesday is set up by the lovely Lainey at GingerReadsLainey if you want to pop over and have a look at her channel. Let’s have a look at the topic for today!
Okay, so I’ve basically remixed this topic to be fictional places because some of these are classed as towns or countries rather than cities…
But HEY HO, on we go with the list!
This may be a strange choice for a top 5 fictional city/place, but hear me out! I personally think that Panem from The Hunger Games trilogy is genius if not very cruel and unbelievably Marxist. It’s genius because it’s basically meddling with the idea of today’s World of the poor vs the rich. That’s the beauty of this fictional place, it could be real one day. I seriously hope not.
4) Mystic Falls
This one is basically in my top 5 because I would never wanna live there EVER! Apart from all of the Vampires, Witches and Werewolves lurking around, you could get killed by a mixture of all of them, called a Hybrid. This is one messed up small town in The Vampire Diaries series, and one thing that the TV show misses out is that there are ‘fault lines’ underneath it. Basically magical lines that draw paranormals to it. STAY AWAY!
I had to fit a bit of Harry Potter in here somewhere! Seriously, Hogsmeade is THE place to be. Butterbeer? Check, food? Check, wizards? Check. On top of all of that, there is a hell of a lot of snow, imagine how much fun you could have?!
2) Kings Landing
Apart from the awkwardness of being marched through your own streets whilst someone is shouting “SHAME!”, it’s a good home for Cersei Lannister. King’s Landing reminds me of a medieval town in England and how it probably would have been back then. Shady alleyways, massive palace and just plain dirty. As long as your name wasn’t on the kill list, you could live here fine and dandy…
This one is very clever because it’s a fictional city that has actually been mistaken as real…
Strange I know but if you’ve ever read Papertowns by John Green, then you already understand this. If you haven’t read the book, just drop everything and go read it. NOW!
WOO! That was this week’s Top 5 Wednesday, stay tuned for next week’s!
