Welcome to this month's Secret Subject Swap. This week fourteen brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Your “Secret Subject” is:
If you could write yourself into a novel, television show, or film, what would we see you in? What character would you play? How would your presence change the story or would it?
I once wrote about one of my favorite television shows, "The Good Wife", and I really enjoyed putting myself into the mindset of being a character. You can read about that here.
I have sat and thought about this subject, and approached from a million different angles. Part of me wants to write myself into a Matt Damon movie, so I can be his best friend. Part of me wants to write myself into some action packed movie or show, so I can live an exciting life. Part of me wants to be part of Grey's Anatomy, so I can be BFFs with some of my favorite characters, and save people's lives. Plus, let's face it, Meredith needs a new person. I would happily be her person.
The thought of being Matt Damon's BFF, really just makes me happy. I love that man. He is one of my most favorite human beings ever. I love basically every movie he is in. I just cannot seem to pick one to slide myself into. I would want to fit seamlessly into. I would not want change things very much. I would want to be his BFF, not his love interest. I know, weird. I have been in love with him since I was fourteen years old, so nearly twenty years, but I don't want to date him. I have always wanted to be the female Ben Affleck to his life. He seems like he would be the most amazing friend.
Keeping with the BFF idea, I began to ponder the actresses I would not mind being BFFs with... Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon, Alyssa Milano, etc etc So, then I start thinking about which movie would be fun to be added to. There are so many options. So many fabulous options. Do you realize how many wonderful movies there are in this world? So, then I start thinking about the cast as a whole. Which one would be the most epic? Which makes me think about the Ocean movies. I would get Matt Damon, Julia Roberts, AND George Clooney! Yep. Take a moment and consider that.
You guys! Do you know how many thoughts are racing through my head. So many thoughts. So many possibilities. Endless possibilities.
After careful and detailed consideration, I have decided to be part of "Erin Brockovich" with Julia Roberts. I know. I know. I should have probably picked a Matt Damon movie. It would be a true dream come true. I had to choose the way I did, because I think helping Julia/Erin kick PG&E's booty would be awesome. Plus, I could stay by her side and help her take on other bad for the environment and world companies. We could defend the little guy against the big, bad guys.
I think it would be fulfilling. It would be fun. It would be worth it. It would be amazing. Plus, let's face it, Julia Roberts. Not to mention, the real Erin Brockovich seems awesome.
I would not really want to change anything. I would just want to fit in. Help. I would want to do more than just the one movie. I would want to turn into a movie series. I would want us to help thousands of people. I think it would be exhilarating and fun! Totally worth it!
My second choice, would be either NCIS: LA or Grey's Anatomy.
On NCIS: LA, I would like to be the newest agent. I would like to help solve every crime, and always have every one's back. I would also like to be very close to Hattie. Maybe I could even learn some of her secrets. I would definitely like to help Callen find out about his past. I feel like he needs some closure, though I suspect it is a very complex situation. I don't think I would complain if Callen and I ended up being a couple. Sam would be my first choice, but he is very much taken. I should add, I love the name Callen. Had Gigi been a boy, Callen was very high on the list of possible names. It is a show that I consider to be one of my favorites.
On Grey's Anatomy, I would want to be a well rounded, knowledgeable surgeon that can help everyone. I would want to help solve the most complicated cases. I would want to Meredith's person. I would also want to be Arizona's person. I would want to be friends with everyone. I would want to be the Switzerland of the show. I would want to be the person that everyone can trust and come to. As for a love interest, I don't know. Maybe it would be best I am single. That way I can stay focused on saving lives.
So, what show or movie would you choose to be a part of? Would you change things drastically or just fit in seamlessly? Which actor or actress would you most want to spend time with?
