Welcome to my attempt at 5 Fandom Friday, where I try to contribute to a weekly meme but usually forget. This fun weekly postathon is hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. If you’re interested in joining up, check out future posting topics here.
I thought this week’s topic would be super easy because who doesn’t want to ride in fictional vehicles? But then I realized I don’t know the names of a lot of fictional vehicles (for some reason Snowpiercer keeps coming to mind and that is definitely NOT a fictional vehicle I want to ride in), so let’s see if the internet can help me find five. This Wikipedia page is incredibly helpful.
The TARDIS from Doctor Who (preferably with 10 as pilot)
I’m pretty sure if this posting topic was a poll, the TARDIS would win by a huge landslide. Who doesn’t want to travel through all of time and space to see exciting and amazing things? Boring people. People who we do not want to be friends with. They probably don’t like cookies either.
Because that would mean that I was chillin’ with Batman and that could be cool (or deadly). I’d want it to be like the Nolan ‘verse tumbler for extra security reasons.
Mostly so I could hang out with the awesome crew and take part in exciting heists, but being in space would be really cool too if I were on a reliable ship like this.
The Dirigible from The Finishing School series by Gail Carriger
Going to a ladies’ finishing school sounds terrible unless it’s really secret code for turning you into a Victorian badass spy lady. I don’t remember if the dirigible-that-is-a-school has a name or not, but it would fulfill my latent desires to A) go to boarding school, and B) live on a moving vessel that is not a cruise ship for a weird length of time.
The Millennium Falcon from Star Wars
Because it would probably be Fernando’s second choice (after the TARDIS of course), and we could have space adventures with Han and Chewie.
Runner Up: A Jaeger from Pacific Rim
This is a runner up because I can honestly say the idea of riding in a jaeger is terrifying, but it would be pretty badass too. Especially if I didn’t have to fight a giant glowy monster and just romp around the ocean instead.
So what fictional vehicle would you like to ride in and who would you want as the pilot? Are you a TARDIS fan or would you prefer a jaunt in a spaceship? Anyone else think the Impala from Supernatural doesn't count because it's a real car?
