Somebody once said that we can’t choose our family but we can choose our friends. What they didn’t take into consideration was the speed the technology is advancing. What if one day the scientists announce a little machine which could do so? Therefore I decided to prepare my little assorted list of fictional family members –
Richard Castle (Castle) – He is the daddy cool. He is a 5-year-old in an adult body and works in collaboration with the NYPD. What more could you ask for?
Molly Weasley (Harry Potter) – Nobody is as perfect for being a mother as Mama Weasley is. She took Harry in, cared for him and loved him like his mother would have. If she was good to Harry, she is good for me.
Mycroft Holmes (Sherlock BBC) – What can I say? He practically owns the British Government. I could use influence like that in my life.
Not Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones) – Literally anyone but Cersei and I’ll be happy. She literally makes my younger sister look like a cute bunny filled with rainbows and stars.
Best Friend (male)
Joey Tribbiani (F.R.I.E.N.D.S) – He likes Pizza. He doesn’t share food and he might not be the wisest guy around but he sure is the nicest.
Best Friend (female)
Robin Scherbatsky (How I Met Your Mother) – Say what you will about the finale of HIMYM, Robin was one loyal friend. She gave crazy advices, did crazy stuff, had a lot of experience wielding a gun and was a famous reporter. All this comes in handy while having an adventure with your best friend.
Chandler Bing (F.R.I.E.N.D.S) – He isn’t good at giving advice. What he’ll give you rather is a sarcastic comment, a taunt, a feeble attempt to make it better by a joke and will end up feeling sorry for himself. He practically defines Crazy uncles around the world.
Dean Winchester (Supernatural) – Don’t ask me why but the idea that if I die, somebody will deal his soul away to save me always makes me feel content. Also he loves his pie, and I love baking. Perfect match, won’t you say?
Loki (Thor) – I like to have a healthy competition from my opponent. A mythical God claiming his rule over the earth seems worth enough.
This was my list but I would like to know what you would like as your fictional family. Leave a comment below to let me know what other good choices are out there and maybe I would replace my choices with yours.
