Morning lads and lasses! Welcome to your weekly fantasy reflections post—my favorite time of the blogging week.
We’ve covered a lot of ground since starting these reflection posts. We’ve talked about everything from moving to a fantasy world, to stealing a fantasy character’s identity, to building your own Fellowship of the Ring.
Today, we’re taking this discussion a step or two down the proverbial ladder to the dungeons. That’s right.
The dark, dank, damp dungeons.
At first glance, it looks pretty easy, right? Wrong.
It’s only easy until you think about all the different options there are!
This time I’ve decided to branch out a bit from my “safe” answers always relating to the Lord of the Rings, and go with Gonff, Prince of Mousethieves, from Mossflower by Brian Jacques.
After all, if you’re going to be “locked up,” it might as well be with someone who opens locks for a living. And whenever things got too dull, Gonff could sing a song or play a tune on his reed flute to keep up our spirits.
How about you? What fantasy character would you choose to keep you company in the dungeons while you plan a daring escape?
As always, answer in the comments! I love hearing from people. Also, if you like, you are welcome to repost the picture or question elsewhere to continue the discussion. All I ask is that you link back to this original post. Thanks!
