If You Were a Book Character, Who Would You Be?

SariaSaria Posts: 15,963Registered Users
Is there a fictional character you identify with? For me, reading Charlotte Bronte's Villette made me see that I am pretty much exactly like Lucy Snowe. I've had things in common with other fictional characters, but Lucy Snowe is the one that expresses so much of what I think and feel.
Warning: the following passages are depressing. Heh.

"This hag, this Reason, would not let me look up, or smile, or hope: she could not rest unless I were altogether crushed, cowed, broken-in, and broken-down. According to her, I was born only to work for a piece of bread, to await the pains of death, and steadily through all life to despond."

"No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. What does such advice mean? Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure. Happiness is a glory shining far down upon us out of Heaven."

Which character are you and why?

    I'd probably be my usernamesake, Nynaeve from the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. She's smart and feisty and doesn't take crap from anyone, but underneath it all, she's also a romantic.

    Noone has probably ever heard of this character/person but I'd be Brian Boru (yes it's a guy). He's the main character in a book called "The Lion the ireland" by Morgan Llywelyn about Ireland's ancient high king. The author portrayed him with such strength of character that I'd love to be as strong as he was. and it's a great book. It made me want to visit Ireland.

    In many ways, though not all, probably Claire Fraser from Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series - More than any other one character, anyway. And she has curly hair that sounds like it's about the color of mine!
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    LOL, yeah, her too - in a more honest, realistic modern-day way. If I'm honest, Claire's probably more the idealistic way I think I'd be if
    • I weren't always trying to quit some bad habit or other
    • I weren't so good at wasting time at work
    • I weren't pining after the wrong guy - or just wishing for one to fall for
    . . . well, all the rest, too! :laughing2:

    Claire Fraser.

    Although, my age and mannerisms, I'd likely be more like Brianna Fraser. And that's okay, because Roger is a hottie, too. :)

    I should also add that she's very stubborn and always thinks she's right (which is me, too). She has a hard time admitting she's wrong...LOL

    If I were not married with children, I could see me as Kinsey Millhone from the Sue Grafton mysteries.

    As me, probably Mrs. Weasley from Harry Potter.

    I know it's not a deep novel but I would love to be Allie in The Notebook. I know a lot of people don't seem to like Nicholas Sparks. But I really love this book and the time period.

    I love this book!!! and I knew who Brian Boru was before it. Partly because there is a large pub by that name that I frequent and part because I love Celtic history.

    As for a character that resembles me....I have no idea. I think I'm much more a composite. Though the character that comes to mind first is Roger. I'm an historian too soon to be teacher (hopefully) love digging into things, and a musician, fiddler.

    There's also a bit of Joe from Little Women in there.
  • curlygirlymecurlygirlyme Posts: 1,340Registered Users
    A weird combo of Jane Eyre, Marianne from Sense and Sensibility, Jo from Little Women, and Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice.

    Most likely because I've been one of them at sometime or another in my life, but I wish I had the lessons learned turned out a little better like theirs.

    I wondered what he was thinking. Being a tiger, obviously, he was emotionally detached from Pi and everything else. He was all about survival. I feel an odd sort of connection to that.

    A cross of two character's.

    Jody Jaffe's Natalie Gold - Horse crazy, and very talented rider, Jewish, attracts adonis types somehow. I'm not as insecure as she is, though, and am much more nerdy.

    Shelley Freydont's Katie McDonald - A total nerd. She's much more mathematically inclined than I am, though, and I have more verbal skills/people skills.

    Both are women who don't quite fit in where they are, and may care - but aren't willing to change to do so. And only really think people who accept them as they are are the ones worth bothering with....

    Meliara from Crown Duel (favorite book):

    -Stubborn
    -Nowhere near as strong as she wants to be
    -Brave, for the most part
    -Thinks too much (maybe just me)
    -Introverted
    -Strong relationship with her brother
    -Hair similarities
    -A bit awkward at times

    Or Piemur from the Dragon Song trilogy, but less extroverted.

    There are many differences between us, though, as well. I'm sure there are other characters that I'm like, but I can't recall them right off the top of my head.

    Now I have to go reread them. =] Nice thread!
