I’d pick fairies and unicorns. Oh, and mermaids.

The perfect man.

But really. Forgetting that, I’d probably pick fairies too. I had a special one when I was little who lived under my bed.

I like the dragons from Game of thrones.

@Jeruba Did you give it a name?

@RayaHope, no. We weren’t on speaking terms; she was just there. I wasn’t in a position to give her a name, anyway. She wasn’t mine to name. She looked just like one of Cicely Mary Barker’s beautiful creations.

I used to check every night when I went to bed to see if she was there, and she was. She sat on the rim of my chamber pot beneath my bed.

@Jeruba Oh that is adorable! I’ll call her Zinnia. :)

Jeruba's avatar

@RayaHope, oh, that is much too weighty a name for a tiny, delicate winged being. Anyway, I doubt that we could pronounce any name that comes from the fairy tongue.

I, too, vote for unicorns.

Unicorns were much prized for their horns, which were known for being proof against poison. A unicorn could dip its horn into a pool of water and ensure that it was pure and safe to drink. Powerful lords wanted cups made out of unicorn horn so their conniving relatives could not poison them at their wine. So narwhals were hunted for their valuable tusks.

^^ (sad) :( I’d protect a unicorn from those evildoers. They gotta go through ME first!!

Someone will make unicorns real one day using CRISPR or something like it. Pink fluffy unicorns are not real….yet.

Hobbits, centaurs, fairies, dragons, elves, sprites, and that horsey thing with wings that Harry Potter rode. Hagrid introduced them, and you had to bow to it before it would accept you. Stupid ole Draco showed his ass as usual and got payback for it.

In Greek mythology, there’s a winged horse named Pegasus.

janbb's avatar

Oh, oh, oh – Hedwig, the owl and not the one with the angry inch!

smudges's avatar

@Brian1946 Yes, but the creature in Harry Potter wasn’t that. Just looked it up and what Harry rode was a Hippogriff. But yeah, I’d take a winged horse any ole day!

“The Hippogriff, a majestic flying animal which is part-horse, part-eagle, is a beast we get to know in the Harry Potter books rather well in the form of Hagrid’s beloved Buckbeak.”

Cate Blanchette played Galadriel and her beautiful dress was copied for many weddings after watching the Lord of the Rings series, however she is being replayed in Amazons new version in 2022.
For interest sake: Here is a link that expalins the Character of Gladadriel’s backstory.

The Hobbit is a mythical ( made up) character.
