If I Had Multiple Lives...

The Silmarillion - J.R.R. Tolkien

I'm torn very much between being a maiar, much like Gandalf or being an elf of the Noldor. While being a maiar has much attraction for me, not the least of which is to work towards the unification and preservation of the free peoples of middle-earth, there is so much I find to admire and love about the Noldor. The wisdom and power they possess, the love of beauty, of poetry and smithing, of nature and the stars, I already feel much a Noldor myself today (well, short the smithing skill, and the what we would call "magical" powers which is part of their nature). I suppose given that, I would opt for the immortality of the Noldor, though even such immortality is not without its own price.

The Star Trek Encyclopedia - Debbie Mirek,Denise Okuda,Michael Okuda

A star ship captain, perhaps a Galaxy class or Sovereign class. I certainly can't see myself in charge of a space station, as in Deep Space Nine, but exploring the galaxy, encountering new species and civilizations, this to me would be one of the best jobs in the universe, well, if it existed that is. My present job is no slouch of a fun job, if you love books and libraries that is ;)

The Last of the Mohicans - James Fenimore Cooper

Even though I am already part Cherokee, living back when I could have been free and living as one with nature sounds like a good life. Okay, so the diseases and poor diet might not have been great back then, but there's something to be said for the ability to roam free across the landscape, living off the land. And not having GMOs would certainly not be the least of the benefits.

Star Wars: A New Hope - George Lucas

A jedi master. I have always admired Obi Wan Kenobi for his wisdom and calm, while still possessing the strength and ability to protect those on the light side of the force, those who strive for justice and truth. To be at once immensely powerful, while still possessing the control to not be tempted to abuse such powers, that would be an ideal worth living. Not sure on the celibacy bit though.

The Sword of Shannara - Terry Brooks_III

A druid. While often mistrusted and misunderstood, working for the good of all races and peoples, even often in spite of their own mistreatment of you, I could see myself in such a role. They also possess great power, but know that the use of such powers comes with a high price, one not to be expended lightly.

A citizen of Narnia, preferably a mouse not unlike Reepicheep. There are many characters I love from the Narnia series, but not more than Reepicheep, a fearless companion, brave and wise, yet not infallible. And of course, to be a citizen of Narnia and to know Aslan, such would be a grand life.
Fraterlucis's rating:

A samurai. While I have not actually read this novel (it's now on my list of books to read), the movie I find quite inspirational and appealing. The simplicity and philosophy they held, the dedication to each activity to achieve perfection, the reverence for nature and life, there is much for me to admire here. Of course, I don't yet know much about Samurai in tradition. But given this example, I find much reason to desire such a life.

An Inkling. Seriously, I can imagine no greater company to be in, save Christ, than the company of such great men and thinkers as the Inklings were. Not only my all-time favorite author, J.R.R. Tolkien, but also C.S. Lewis and many others. To be present and share their works, their thoughts and insights, such would indeed be an amazing time and experience.

Batman: Year One - Deluxe Edition - Frank Miller_II, David Mazzucchelli_III

A superhero. I cannot honestly say what I would want my super power to be, whether I would desire to be human, as Batman was, or from another planet, but as some one aloof and yet who deeply cares for humanity, I find much akin to Batman's plight, well, short the bank account. I certainly wouldn't mind that either.

A wizard. And no, not one from Harry Potter. I have nothing against Harry Potter, mind you. I find the story amusing at times, but I find myself admiring the wizard of the Sword of Truth series much, much more. Granted, the series tends to get repetitive in terms of plot, but all the same, I love the mix of instinct and yet, formula, for lack of a better term, that Richard Rahl possesses in this series. Yes, being such a wizard would indeed be a good, if dangerous, life.

Redwall (Redwall #1) - Brian Jacques

A mouse of Redwall. I mean, seriously, such a world as this seems like so much fun, and having the perspective of the characters in this series, of a world made so much larger by your small stature, I find this world quite appealing. Of course, I could be any other animal in here, though I find myself quite fascinated by the lives of the mice in this series.
Fraterlucis's rating:

This list explores the question, "If I had multiple lives, what do I wish those other lives could be?" The list is not limited to real time periods or persons, and explores a wide gambit of favorites characters and settings I enjoy or admire. This list will undoubtedly expand as I consider other lives and settings.

This list was inspired by Elizardc.
