hole in the wall books

Has anyone else noticed this in Night Witch? When Nightingale’s running over his escape plan? He’s got a book he’s reading in his cell, and he carries it with him as he disables the Russians, blows a hole in wall, collapses some stairs, and generally makes his escape. The book? The Metaphysical Poets.

Now, somehow I doubt his Russian captors picked out a book of poetry to keep him entertained during his captivity. So he probably had it on him when they picked him up. Which means Nightingale was just wandering around with a slim book of metaphysical poetry in his pocket.

Hey! I love your prompts. Do you know any none clichéd way to enter an alternate universe or another layer of reality? Thanks, and I hope you're having a nice day c:

//Thank you very much!!

Firstly, I don’t think that writing cliches are a bad thing. There’s plenty of stories out there with tropes that have been twisted or made their own. 

Here are some ideas on what you could do though:

  • A literal hole in the wall.
  • A dream.
  • A mirror.
  • A book.
  • A pocket watch.
  • A television or computer.
  • A music box.
  • A door.
  • A vehicle.
  • A futuristic machine.
  • A picture/painting/drawing.
  • A window.
  • A weapon.
  • A blink.
  • Through a body of water.
  • Through some fog.
  • Aliens.
  • The Paranormal.
  • Food.
  • Writing a reality to make it come true.
  • A character grasping thin air and making it into a doorway.
  • A pair of glasses or an article of clothing.
  • A supernatural ability.
  • A gemstone or mineral.
  • A pendant on a necklace or a ring.
  • A quilt made up of several universes.

I hope these help even just a little bit and I hope you accept my sincere apologies that this was answered so late.
