The Elves of Rivendell (of The Lord of the Rings)
Pros: The far-seeing wisdom that comes from living for thousands of years; the promise of leaving Middle Earth to get away from those boring humans for the rest of time.
Cons: If you fall in love with a mortal, you either have to become human or live with him for a short time and then mourn him forever.
Jesse Tuck (of Tuck Everlasting)
Pros: The immortal boy won’t mock your fear of death to get you to do stuff; teen on teen action.
Cons: You’re stuck with your teenage romance forever; plus “immortality isn’t all the preachers crack it up to be.”
Dr. Parnassus (of The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus)
Pros: Um, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell will hang out with you; travel the world(s).
Cons: You’re pretty much supposed to give your daughter to the Devil who just so happens to be Tom Waits.
What do you think? Worth it, or not so much? Likely, or not so much?
