Another philosophical conundrum. I don’t know if this one has been raised in the past; it doesn’t seem familiar so feel free to spank or chow, or whatever. I’ve had a few discussions/debates with friends of late in which my skepticism has been invoked. Basically, I don’t believe in stuff like ghosts, alien abductions, reincarnation, psychic abilities and whatnot. Thing is, I’ll readily concede that the world would be a much more interesting place if all that stuff was not only real but evident.

For example, I think it would be pretty cool to live in the Buffyverse. Namely, vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and everyone talks in whip-smart pop-culture references. Of course, there are the obvious downsides in that the mortality rate at high school is pretty nasty and there’s usually an apocalypse on the horizon. Or maybe I’d like to exist in the universe described in the “Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” books. A Babel fish in my ear, I’d travel the galaxy on endless adventures. Downside: the galaxy is run as an exaggerated British burocracy and life is staggeringly cheap, so much so that whatever planet I’m on can be potted into a black hole in a game of interstellar billiards (a recent re-reading of the five books reminded me just how unremittingly grim and inky black the comedy is in that series).

So here’s the question: is there a fictional narrative universe in which you’d like to exist? And, despite however adventure- or pleasure-filled that world may be, is there a serious downside that would make you hesitate before signing up? And would you go for it anyway? All books, movies, TV shows, comics etc. qualify.

I really need to start sleeping again…

I've thought of this alot and there so many other realities I'd rather be in I don't know if I could choose. Mostly anime and video game related worlds. Plus there are a few I've made up myself. The only reason I would hesitate is because I wouldn't want to leave my family and friends behind. If I could come back here every once in a while though, I'd jump at the chance.

Two that come to mind right away are the worlds of Finaly Fantasy X (post Sin) and Haibane Renmei. I don't see many negatives to those.

Iain M Banks's "Culture" universe - it's an extremely high-tech socialist utopia where everything is done by godlike artificial intelligences, nobody has to work unless they want to, and the Culture is so rich that you can get an entire artificial planet or habitat to yourself if you want it, made or customized to spec. And people live hundreds of years.

I'd love to live in the X-Men universe, but only if I get cool mutant powers, too. [Big Grin]

Sure, there'd be a downside...explosions every other day & such...but it definitely wouldn't be boring. Hubby gets to come with me & have mutant powers, too.

Come to think of it, there would be a downside...I'd want our 3 month old to come with us & I'd be afraid for her safety in such a world. Wait a minute...I have super cool mutant powers...no one's hurting my kid! Sign us up!

I've actually thought about this quite a bit as well, and it's been a recurring theme in my writing.

I've always had a fascination with the Star Trek universe, and it might be cool to serve on a Starfleet vessel (I seriously considered the USNA out of high school, so it isn't completely out of left field). I love military strategy, but I also like some of the non-line officer jobs in Star Fleet.

(GEEK ALERT - CONDITION RED)
In TNG TrekMUSE, for example, I served as the ambassador to the Klingon Empire, brokering an alliance against the Romulans and Gorn, both of whom had become very aggressive. After that, I was the head of Starfleet Diplomacy, and had the unenviable task of cleaning up after the Battle of Flagrante Bello, where we attacked the Gorn and Romulans and got our asses handed to us.

In TOS TrekMUSE, I has the CO of the MSRF (Mobile Ship Repair Facility), kind of like a portable Spacedock.

(END GEEK ALERT)

I'd also love a chance to be in the Whoniverse, though only as a companion. The fact that I could leave and then return before I left in the first place is appealing.

I would go with Buffyverse, provided I was like, Dawn. I'd get to hang out, my sister would protect me, and I wouldn't necessarily have to fight. I'd also be smarter than Dawn.

Well, okay, maybe the World in Danger... Again would get trying.

Ian M. Banks' "Culture" does seem like a fun one but, really, if you were in the Star Trek universe, then you wouldn't need anything else. You don't have to work unless you want to, and there's no such thing as money. All you'd need is your own private holodeck, and that would be you for life. You could then pick and choose your own realities. Within the holodeck you could be in the "Culture", or your own variant thereof. You could also be in "Naughty Cheerleaders", starring Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connolley and anyone and everyone else that you can think of.

The only limit would be your imagination.

Yes, but the same applies in reverse - the Culture would also have the technology to build or simulate pretty much anything you want (although they don't make such a point of it). I guess it would be harder to switch from one to another if parts of the simulated world were physical rather than a pure holodeck-type thing - you might have to wait while the new version was set up. But I would find it more satisfying if I knew it was physically real rather than "just" a hologram.

And also, the wait would create anticipation. I wouldn't want to get bored and start to take it for granted!

I don't reckon the Star Trek AIs are as powerful as the Culture Minds, either. So technically, the Culture simulations would be better. I'm not sure about that, though, because I don't know much about Star Trek.

(edit) To put it another way, the Culture would definitely have the technology to build you a USS Enterprise if you wanted one, and I don't see why they couldn't include a holodeck on that. They could probably make you an Enterprise that uses nanotechnology to reconfigure itself as any other Star Trek vessel on demand...

So many I can't count them...most of the ones mentioned, in fact. Not familiar with the "Culture", and I'm not really a huge fan of Trek, but I wouldn't refuse the opportunity, either.

Pass on Naughty Cheerleaders, though.

Aside from the fantasy world of my childhood, the world of Greek myth? Well, you're all gonna think I'm crazy, but I think I'd like to drop by George Romero's Earth, circa Dawn of the Dead. Maybe not to stay, but I'd like to check it out. Zombies in Juicy and Bebe menacing South Coast Plaza, running shootouts on PCH, stealing a boat from Balboa and escaping to Catalina. Ah, that's the life. Or something.

I'm not familiar enough with them to know exactly which one, but I'm sure there's an anime universe where I could get changed into an irresistably attractive (perhaps even nauseatingly cute) young woman. Complications woule ensue, but...

Or, Fred Pohl's Gateway universe, after the invention of the HereAfter. Eternal life in cyberspace, doing....well, pretty much anything you like. (See the 'becoming an irresistably attractive young woman' thing, above.)

The Star Trek universe would do, too. Wouldn't mind seeing some of the galaxy. And they do have the holodeck.

This might be an obvious one, but no one's said it, so...since I was a kid, I've always been fascinated with the Star Wars universe. Partly because of the obvious benefits of living in a place with all kinds of interesting planets and animals, not to mention space travel. I've always loved the idea of space and space travel, and honestly, if I thought I had the physical ability for it, I'd try to become an astronaut (corny, I know). Plus there's this huge degree of freedom associated with being a Han Solo-type person.

Unfortunately, this would mean I would have to live in a universe of horribly awkward romantic dialogue. However, since I'm not so great in that department to begin with, I'm all set!

(I'm just going to ignore the corny joke aspect of the prequel trilogy, as well as, well, pretty much everything from that trilogy. But I'll take stuff from some of the books. Seriously. A few of them are pretty good, at least for middle school reading.)

I'd like to be a hobbit in Middle-earth. A calm, peaceful, pastoral existance in a world of fantasy but in which most real threats are far, far away. The only thing you'd have to worry about is those blasted Tooks and Brandybucks sneaking into your garden!

Living in the world of Harry Potter (but not as a muggle, of course) would be interesting, as would being a mutant in the setting of the X-Men movies.

A forest animal (raccoon, of course, my "totem animal") in the setting of the Over the Hedge movie. Their life looks like fun! [Big Grin] Too bad the reality in our world is so depressing at times.

I'm sure I'll come up with more after I've pondered this a while.

I'd like to live in the universe of David Weber's Honor Harrington books, but I wouldn't want to be in the navy. I'd want to be one of the people working on integrating treecats into human culture. Maybe even get adopted by one.

Narnia would also be cool, of course. Or Pern, now that they've solved that nasty Thread problem. Or the Potterverse, but as others have said, not as a muggle, because I'm already a muggle now.

I'd also like to visit the Trek universe during Archer's time, when humans are just starting to really explore what's out there.

I'd zap myself into the Marvel Comics universe in the blink of an eye (point of note: X-Men don't have their own "universe", they live in the basic Marvel Universe along with most other heroes).

There are bad sides, ofcourse. I'd have to move to New York City to see any significant action. Plus, some villain could always squash me. Still though, I'd make the trip without hesitation.

Sign me up for Discworld, but like Morning I want to be a witch and work with Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg. Ankh-Morpork would be good for the occasional visit. I suspect I would accidentally wander into the Shades and get myself killed though, so Lancre and the Ramtops it is.

Of course, what I really want to do is go and live with the Goblin King in the world of Labyrinth, but only if he looked like David Bowie does in the film. Probably the less said about that the better really...

You guys are geeks of the first water. I feel so proud to be among you.

There are some very good suggestions already made. The world of "The Practice Effect" by David Brin would be cool and the Shire is a wonderful place. The worlds of Firefly/Serenity would never be dull but I don't much like the Alliance. I think that it would have to be ST:TNG for me. I am a geek. Magic is cool but I can work technology.

My heart just went ice cold. No way in hell would I live anywhere near Castle Rock.

I would like to travel in Niven's Known Space.

And any world, such as Narnia, where I can flip between the magical world and this one, would be on my list. In fact, just send me to the Wood Between the Worlds and I'll test-dive all the pools.

Then, I'd head over to Tamora Pierce's Circle universe and learn some thread magic from Lark and Sandry, before finishing off in Corus where I could hang out with Kel and the King's Riders.

I will be direct and up front about my unhealthy addiction with anime. I will also be fair and give wikipedia entries to the anime of the worlds I mention.

My number one choice would be The Universe of the Four Gods during the Genbu Kaiden times. I also wish to be the heroine Takiko, although I know she dies. (Like I did with Aerith too at one point, though I have no clue why now)

Other worlds I want to go to include Cephiro, Manga Edonis/Outo, Gaia, specifically Lindblum, Manga Amnestris maybe, and Wherever this takes place.

ETA: a period and the following statement.

And in three of those worlds I can gain super powers/super hero status without being gifted at birth or whatever, though that would help in two. I can also do so in a fourth provided I was blessed with the talent, and I wanted to be a dog of the military.
