Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Sooo many to choose from. Lovable, interesting, quirky, despised, funny, serious, impossible...

Who do you think you are? Who would you like to be? If you had to think on it, who would you say other TC members would be?

Brittomart Oooh, I have to think about this, Heidi.

message 13: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart I've always identified with Francie Nolan from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. And Jin from American Born Chinese.

Which one is Jin? I can't remember.

Brittomart The main character. The boy that turns into Danny


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Sophie Hatter, from Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) As a child, I was Fern from Charlotte's Web.

Now? No clue.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Did you raise an evil wizard from the dead, Myles? :)


message 19: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11703 comments I'll be okay as long as none of you admits to identifying with the narrator from Poe's "Tell-Tale Heart."

(view spoiler)


message 20: by Janice (new)

Janice (jamasc) I relate to Eowyn from Lord of the Rings, fighting against being pigeon holed into the traditional role of a woman, believing that a woman can do anything her heart desires.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I'm not sure about what my own answer would be yet. I'm leaning towards Mary Poppins.



I'd like to be Robin McKinley's Sunshine, though... maybe? She's pretty bad ass and she makes a mean cinnamon roll.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Sometimes I think of RA as John Keating



and Sally as Ms. Honey,



and I think of TawNub as The Delphic Oracle.




message 23: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11703 comments I thought RA would be the guy from the movie...

"Bueller....    Bueller...    Bueller..."

Michele bookloverforever (lovebooks14) | 1970 comments As a child, I wanted to be Wendy Darling from Peter Pan. Now, i would love to be either Anita Blake from Laurell Hamilton's series or Eve Dallas from J.D.Robb's series. In reality, I am someone who sits and reads more than someone who "kicks a..". Although I write really potent protest letters.


message 29: by Sandy (new)

Sandy (sandylivvy4) today my daughter is leaning towards being a very good amelia jane
Naughty Amelia Jane

Heh. I'll say that if no one in my class is answering my questions on a particular day...

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Sally is still Ms. Honey to me.

mark monday (majestic-plural) Philip Castle from Cat's Cradle


message 34: by ~Geektastic~ (last edited Apr 25, 2012 07:13AM) (new)

 ~Geektastic~ (atroskity) | 3207 comments As a kid I was a bit of a Fanny Price: shy, nervous and solitary. But occasionally my inner bossypants Hermione Granger would come to the surface. I'm not quite witty enough to be Elizabeth Bennet, but I've always identified intensely with her, especially as her parents are so much like my own. Maybe an equal-parts blend of Mary and Lizzie from Pride and Prejudice.


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

I always identified quite strongly with Jane Eyre. Not that I was an orphan.

Is Mr. Gail's first name Edward? ;)


message 37: by Auntie (new)

Auntie Raye-Raye (fabulousraye) Do graphic novel characters count?

If they do, I'd be Delirium of the Endless.
