Top 10 fictional Creatures


1. Vampires – all of them: Scary, sexy, sparkly, dangerous, vengeful, vegetarian or dusty! Although if any of them ask I did not call them creatures or fictional (better to be safe than sorry).

2. Unicorns – horses but better. It’s every girls’ dream (or it was mine) to own a horse so what could be better than a magic, shiny horse that can fly? Even grown-up me loves unicorns.

3. Centaurs – majestic, proud and in to stargazing. My kind of man/horse.

4. Werewolves – can’t mention vampires without their age-old enemy werewolves making an appearance. It would be pretty cool to have a friend and a pet, all in one, to keep you warm on a snowy night (but only if it was the friendly Stephanie Meyer kind of werewolf).

5. Hippogriffs – I would be slightly worried that I might accidentally offend one and looking at my list it seems like I have a bit of a horse theme going on but I still maintain that a flying pet would be awesome!

6. Ophiotaurus (Sea Cow – Bessie in Percy Jackson) – Half Serpent, Half Cow – I’m half disgusted and half intrigued, it really could go either way if we were ever to meet.

7. Ewoks – teddies. I haven’t seen star wars (sorry) but I have seen a baby Ewok and it is bizarrely cute in a human teddy, that may be violent at any second, kinda way. I think when my teddies come alive (at night) they are slightly more peaceful but I’m sure that if I got hold of one of the baby Ewoks I could train it up to be a hippy.

8. Shadow men – creepy but alluring, I’m not sure I’d want to meet one but like vampires I’m liking the bad boy thing they have going on!

9. Ghosts – I’m not sure if they count as fictional creatures or not so I’ll just say fictional portrayals of ghosts. Hopefully that will stop any annoyed ghosts from haunting me and give Nearly Headless Nick a boost!

10. Dragons – I saved the best till last. When I was younger I loved The Neverending Story so I would have to say that Falcor is one of my favourite dragons. The best thing about him is that although he is a dragon he also looks like a giant fluffy puppy so I get two of my favourite animals for the price of one. I also love the mini versions of the Harry Potter dragons, although I’m not sure I could handle the full size versions without a lot of broomstick practise.

    Go for it ! My Dad took me to the first one. We sat in the front row, right side. Everything was on a slant and very big. Loved it !
