What if the Money Heist characters were my friends in real life…?

Published

on

I love money heist and I don’t see why wouldn’t one? It’s fascinating, thrilling, perfectly depicted, and it just makes you fell in love with each character, I don’t know how they could do it, but they surely did. It happens rarely that I like something and don’t think about it, same with money heist. It’s lingered in my mind for months and I thought of it as ‘What if the money heist characters were my friends?’ What would be my life? How would they ease my problems and pains? Let’s think.
     First I’d be thinking of the supreme leader, mastermind, wise, meticulous, clairvoyant, and no non-sense person one and only our very own ‘Professor’. We know that Professor has immense, and nonpareil abilities to deal with difficulties and problems and that’s why he being my friend would make my life way simpler. He would help me to deal with my exams, studies, career problems, and legal problems also. His presence would assure my saftey incase someone hurts or threatens me. Moreover it’d be enlighting to talk, and debate with him plus learning different things and aspects of life from him is like learning from the best. The most important thing that’ll happen to me, if he were my friend is identifying myself and my purpose and that’s what matters the most.
     Let’s just imagine if professor would impact this much on my life then what would happen if Tokyo, Berlin, Nairobi, Lisbon, and Denver were my friends too. Berlin, a commamding, strange, savage yet romantic, lively, and completely team-man is someone whom you want by your side all the time. Because he’d inspire you to do something great and keep your back for always, and would teach you the essence of life and love through his poetic yet practical nature. Berlin who was terminally ill but never allowed it to impede him is a great man to have as a friend.
     If Professor and Berlin are all about teaching and supporting, Tokyo and Denver are all about the fun. Tokyo being a reckless, impulsive, brave, smart, and very hot woman is absolutely irresistible. If she were my friend it would put me in a different dimension where every boy wants to be my friend, and it would make me quite a popular, wouldn’t it? However it’d be naive to deny that her recklessness would put me in a danger situations, but who cares when you’ve Professor backing up. Whereas Denver is a party animal, totally extrovert but has a ridiculously weird laugh. His relationship with his father and Monica tells us that he’s a good hearted  and trustworthy person. Which means if it were possible then Denver would be my loyal friend with whom I can enjoy the life with whom I can eat, drink, and travel. Life would be adventurous if Denver were my friend.
     At last I need to talk about Nairobi and Lisbon. Nairobi, a cool, calm, and loving person would help to overcome stress and depression in life. Moreover she’s such a lovely person to spend time with and talk about dreams. On the other hand Lisbon is preoccupied and depressing yet a smart and brave woman. However why I want her to be my friend is because she’s an ex-cop and having such person behind is always lucrative.
     So this is how my life would be easier, interesting, and adventurous if money heist characters were my friends in real life.
