|Writer's Block: Back to School
||[Jan. 15th, 2009|01:22 am]
What fictional high school—from tv, film, or a book—would you most like to attend? Or would you rather never go near high school again, fictional or otherwise?
Personally, I'd like to go to Sunnydale, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Sure, my life expectancy would be as low as a common butterfly, but I'm sure it would be interesting. Also, if I survived what that school had in store, I'm fairly sure I could survive anything. Got a case of wurms? Nothing too big for me to handle. If I knew what I only learnt after school, I'd have a lot more fun there too. If not, it seems like the place was full of nerds, dorks and geeks, allowing me a full range of social interaction, in limited circles at least. Also, if the classes were anything like in Buffy, they'd last 5 minutes at most. Sure, I'd not get much of an education, but why waste it on someone with a projected lifespan like I'd have? More time for partying in the Bronze, and maybe looking beyond my own shoes.
Of course, I realise the chances that I'd be the slayer are slim in the extreme (wrong circumstances of birth, for instance), but it would be a very interesting time. Never a dull moment, one might say.
