The inestimable Mrs Mugrage recently tagged me in her own “Favorite Character Quarantine” post. There were some rules, but I obviously threw them out the window as I always do.
So let’s see what happens when I put some of my favorite fictional characters into illegal lockdown!
Jerome, now a master swordsman and follower of the Way, would resign his position as head of the Order, strap on his sword, put on his cloak and take a journey. To New York State where he would behead the Governor, one Andrew Cuomo, for his tyrannical, despotic and illegal actions. He would then be gunned down by a cadre of corrupt New York police officers for “resisting arrest”.
Phantom Tollbooth Quarantine
Milo, from the The Phantom Tollbooth, would simply get in his little car and drive through the tollbooth and enter another land until it was all over. He’d have some wonderful adventures and come back fully refreshed and ready to take on the world. Lucky guy!
Yotsuba, only being 5, would quickly go crazy and her dad would have to find things for her to do so she wouldn’t drive HIM crazy. He’d probably have her clean the house, every day!
Black Stallion Quarantine
I think we ALL know what would happen to the Black Stallion …..

Enchanted Forest Chronicles Quarantine
Princess Cimorene, now Queen Cimorene, would tirelessly help out the inhabitants of the Enchanted Forest as they came down with the virus. Sadly, she would succumb herself and die a slow, lingering and agonizing death. Mendenbarr, her husband and King of the Enchanted Forest with all of its powers at his command becomes unhinged and declares war on the wizards who he blames for the virus. The wizards, being sneaky no-good scum, drag the dragons into things. Mendenbarr destroys the wizards but also hurt the dragons who try to burn down the Enchanted Forest in retaliation. They fail but end up killing Mendenbarr. Because he is crazy from Cimorene’s death he unleashes one final blast of magic that destroys the world as he dies. Truly tragic.
Ahhh, good times! What a great tag.
