The Fictional Love
I believe, most bookworms had experienced this kind of feeling before. A love, a hopeless love they had had for the fictional characters, based on the books they had read. Well, I do, I did. The kind of love we had when we were lost in the pages of a book. The love we had for the fictional characters. We fell for their attitude, their personality (& for their describtion as well. Yknow, 'good looking, hot, stunning'. Who wouldnt fall for those kind of physical attractions?) But most of all, I couldnt get myself to deny that we actually fell in love with the characters, based on their personality.
The way they treated their partners. The way they got what they wanted. The way they faced their problems. Sometimes, they even be our idols. But correct me if im wrong, we all know one thing, the fictional characters are fictional & they are not real. All of us are aware of that but still, we are still in love with them.
Is it wrong? Is it wrong to fall in love with the fictional characters?
Well, in my opinion, i dont think it is wrong to have a hopeless love towards those fictional characters. Or to love them, to make them as your inspirations. But what's wrong is that people tend to letting their hopes too high on such things. They tend to wish their partners or even somebody who is closed to them to act like the fictional characters. Yes, im speaking on my behalf.
I, myself, sometimes wished i had a boy bestfriend just like Simon Lewis in TMI. Well he's the kind of boy best friend that every girl wanted. It's true. Try read the series & youll understand. & i wished for a boyfriend like Jace, and Tobias, & some more fictional characters. Why did i wish for that? It's actually because, those guys in the books, never, ever, ever, ever gave up on their girls. Like seriously. No matter what their girls did, they'd still stick around. Every girl wants that kind of guy. And so, as i said before, we are aware that those fictional characters were not real & they were created by humans.
And that explains why they were so perfect
They were created by some humans who wanted them to be like that. Yknow. We, the real ones, have flaws. & we have to accept that. Like really really accept that. And others have their own flaws too, so take it, or leave it.
We should stop hoping for others to be like them. We tend to forget that they are humans, real humans. Not fictional. (& they are not so into books that they dont understand & cannot actually give what we want. & definitely not gonna be like the characters in the books)
BUT we could make them read. He he he this might sounds bad (wait, i dont think making people read is a bad thing to do. I didnt ask them to get involved with drugs) but damn we should make them read. Idk how you guys are going to make it but, make them read, nerds! Make them.
Suggest a book to them. A book that you think is interesting & easy to understand. Dont give them a 300+ pages of book for starters. No! Theyll freak out. Trust me, I hadnt really suggested them that kind of books but I did bring mine to school & some of them who dont read, freak out. Im sorry to say that but THEY WILL FREAK OUT NO MATTER WHAT.
Maybe you could suggest Dork Diaries to them, & then proceed with The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. I did that to myself. That was how I started to like books. Suggest them a book that is different. You know... A book that contains the meaning of life. Now thats different. A book that has variety of things.
I, personally, dont like the kind of books that are too focus on the love they had. I couldnt deny that there were love stories in the books that i own, but they still had fighting scenes in it (mostly). But John Green's books are different. There's a book about, friendship, love + the meaning of life, investigation & stuff. Aaahhh I LOVE JOHN GREEN!
So yeah. Try something new with them. Dont just get them a love genre book, with 500+ pages & say, "Babe, read this and we'll have a talk about it next week. Love you xoxo".
Why did i ask you to suggest books to them & make them read? First, it's for you, and the others, so the possibilities for you guys & the others to have a boyfriend or girlfriend that is soooo perfect like the fictional characters is higher. & second, we could gain the population of people who like to read! Who finally will choose reading as their hobby. Isnt it a good thing to do? Isnt it? Isnt it?
Hehe i think thats all for today. I'd been working on this post since last night. I'd like to thank those who managed to read this post till the end. Thank you so much. May God bless you, have a nice day ahead!
