Questions 3: What If You Woke Up in a New World?

Labyrinth

As authors, I think we imagine ourselves in other worlds to begin with.  It might not be us exactly, but we exist in these worlds through our characters.  So, the concept of an Isekai isn’t too farfetched.  Probably why it comes off as a power fantasy for both authors and readers at times.  So, these questions might be fairly easy and fun.

  1. What kind of world would you want to wake up in?
  2. What ability/power/tech would you want to give you an edge?
  3. How would you change yourself while in that world?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    1. Definitely Middle-earth, specifically Lothlórien, a place with beautiful trees or Rivendell. If the latter, I would want knowledge of indoor plumbing no matter how anachronistic that might seem. 😄
    2. Whatever “elf magic” Galadriel had, plus the indoor plumbing mentioned above. 😄
    3. I would be an elf for sure! But an elf with a working toilet.

  2. I would like to wake up in a world that had no politicians and is so far developed that government isn’t necessary. I would also like this world to be in dire need of fiction stories
    My ability to write would lead to fame and fortune
    I would change myself into an extroverted promotional spokesperson for my books in order to keep up with the need for appearances on late-night talk shows.

    Hmm! Now what kind of world? Perhaps one where international boundaries no longer exist.
    I would like the power of persuasion so I could prevent people from harming one another in any conflicts that arise.
    How would I change myself? Well, I think I’d make myself younger so I had time to do things, and develop an empathy with others.
    John’s world where people need stories sounds good.

  4. These are tough, because I wouldn’t seek the struggle and needed character arch. I’d be looking for more of a utopia, including better weather. People would get along and there would always be interesting things to discover. I wouldn’t care if it were more like the typical fantasy setting or more science fiction based. I might not even need a special power.

    • Seems most people would want to go to a utopia. Probably shouldn’t have left that open as an option since that wouldn’t make for a good story. Arriving to perfection with no conflict or worries only works if there’s a sinister force behind it.

  5. What a fun topic!

    1) What kind of world would you want to wake up in? It would be pastoral, or even wilderness, with picturesque ruins of a lost civilization. The climate would be mild and there would be very few people. I guess I feel like we have little privacy in the modern world.

    2) What ability/power/tech would you want to give you an edge? Magic, of course! I might need to defend myself against predators (human or animal) and magic would be useful for preserving food and lighting fires without using chemicals.

    3) How would you change yourself while in that world? I would need better survival skills, magic or not.
