So last night I couldn’t sleep and ended up wondering what became of the characters from the famous children’s novels by Enid Blyton; The Famous Five. As the hours rolled by and sleep didn’t come I ended up formulating my theory of what became of Julian, George, Dick, Anne and Timmy.
Julian: Julian is working a 9 to 5 desk job and hates his life. He’s married to a mediocre woman who he doesn’t love anymore but stays married because of the kids.
George: George comes out as a lesbian and is shunned by her family.
Dick: Dick is a drunken womanizer who comes into money and sleeps around a lot.
Anne: Anne has written about their childhood adventures and becomes successful novelist. She is possibly cheating on her husband.
Timmy: Timmy died of old age and neglect.
I know it’s pretty morbid, but this would kinda make sense. This is my insomniac version of what became of the now not so famous five. Fun Fact: I didn’t know that Enid Blyton was a woman when I was readings these books as a kid.
