    Which fictional characters do you think most resemble you?

    For me, I would have to say Scaramouche and Don Quixote.

    I would have to say, if I were a fictional character, I would most certainly be
    God.

    I'm reminded of myself when I see Dean Keaton in Usual Suspects (though, I'd rather be Spacey!).

    Mario from Super Mario World 1 for SNES.

    Steve Martin's character from Spanish Prisoner.

    Amber Benson (Tara) from Buffy or Gabrielle from the old, old Xena's. People say I look like both. *Sighs* So, whatever.

    I was hoping for ideas on which characters reflect your personality as you are, not which characters you would like to be.

    A fun question AdamAnt!

    I most resemble a composite of characters rather than any one.

    I might resemble K, the Land Surveyor, in Franz Kafka's, Das Schloss. Since I first read this book when I was quite young, I'm not sure if I used K as a role model for the man I've become, or if I was drawn to K's character and plight because of a pre-existing similarity between us. K has an obsession with trying to understand a nonsensical situation. In the course of my life, I often think of passages from this book.

    The English patient in Ondaatje's The English Patient:
    "I believe in such cartography...to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books." The English patient is quietly complex, vain, and inquisitive. He loves beauty where he finds it, in cave art, in women, and in books.

    If you've seen the charming Scottish film, My Life So Far, you might recognize me in Edward's father, played by Colin Firth. The father is an unsuccessful inventor with two passions: Beethoven ("the sound of God talking in his sleep") and the Bible. However, you have to replace Beethoven with J.S. Bach and the Bible with Philosophy. Firth's character is a strong-willed character who comes to see the foibles in his stout character.

    These might do for now.

    If you read and understand Scaramouche and The Man Of La Mancha, I guarantee you'd get a very clear look inside my head.

    Well, Robin Hood definetly has the attitude I like. He is good with bow and arrow too. See, I love that.

    Maybe Sally, from the third rock from the sun, is a good alternative...

    I have a bunch that I guess represent me:

    Spider-Man, Sherlock Holmes, Lester Burnham from American Beauty, Don Quixote, adn Eric Draven.

    I suppose, I don't really know though, awesome question Adam.

    Asgaurd dude, hate to burst your bubble but I think Yoda's a little less emotion-controlled than you!

    I would say I'm like Keaton from Usual Suspects because he resembles my attitude in a group situation. Keaton knew he was the best and knew he was right in certain situations but knew his limitations. He also was good at one thing, and that was speaking to people. That reminds me of myself.

    Very interesting

    While I will not condescend to consider whether or not I expected such an answer, it gives me pause for a moment of queer reflection (if I may be permitted such a sleight-of-pen) and wonder what I should make of the fact that among my early fictional kinships came from the L'Engle Wrinkle in Time trilogy, and that I actually bear a number of ties to a female character, Meg Murray. It was five or six years ago, now, that a chance coincidence put me in mind of those books, and I can actually trace a couple of the surviving threads of my childhood psyche directly to those books.

    And, even more befuddling, this comes to mind only when I see BBCboy's response while pondering who the hell I am in fiction.

    But beyond that it's a harder thing, because I tend to think in terms of characters who give me something to aspire to. Thus, it seems inappropriate to list Khaavren of Castlerock, since his disposition has affected my character instead of matched it.

    So Zonker Harris and Mike Doonesbury from Doonesbury, are among the closest matches I can think of, and I'm more than a little struck by the familiarity of Theodore Gumbril, Jr., of Aldous Huxley's Antic Hay.

    For some reason I'm looking at real estate ... I don't know why, it's not like I have any money. So I can't seem to concentrate. Oh, well. Distractions, distractions. Anyway,

    thanx,
    Tiassa
