If You Could Will It into Existence…

There’s a band I really love called Typhoon. Their last album was released in 2013, and I’ve been hoping for a new album ever since. So far, none has come.

It occurred to me recently that I would easily overpay for a new Typhoon album. If money were somehow the difference between me and more Typhoon, tell me where to pay. I’m there.

This line of thought made me wonder: What other forms of media would I will into existence if I had the power, money, etc? Like, is there a TV show that you loved so much in the 90s that you would pay for just one more episode? One movie sequel? Another book from a beloved author or series?

Here are my picks:

  • band: Typhoon
  • author: David Anthony Durham (a new Acacia trilogy or a similarly epic fantasy book)
  • movie: The Incredibles 2 (which actually might happen)
  • TV show: The Office (this was really difficult, as there are lots of shows I love, and I thought many of them–including The Office–came to a very pleasant end. But I would be ecstatic if there was someday another episode of The Office [American version])

What are your picks? The human(s) behind your picks don’t necessarily need to be alive–like, someone could discover a secret novel hidden from a departed author or an old reel of a TV episode that never reached the airways.
