“What works of fiction have taught you by example, and what did they teach you?”
This is very vague, and I know a lot of other bloggers have taken it to mean what have books taught you about writing? But I’m gonna go with what have books taught you about life in general.
I’m going to starts with the cliche one that everyone will use – Harry Potter. Not only did those three teach me what it means to be true friends, Sirius taught me you don’t have to be related to be family and Neville taught me not to worry, it gets better. I mean, compare book 1 Neville with book 7 Neville, book 7 Neville is a brave hero. Hermione, where to even start? She taught me it’s okay to be smart, actually that being smart comes in handy a lot. She also taught me that I can be a princess and a warrior and a genius. I don’t have to choose one. I think Hermione is great, but Harry Potter in general taught me so much.
Secondly we have Percy Jackson, which taught me that we all have a hero on the inside, no matter how odd we seem to the rest of the world. It taught me the importance of keeping going and what it means to be a friend. In addition to that, it taught me tin cans are a good source of vitamins and apparently very tasty.
