i've really gone crazy with the alliteration this week, haven't i?
but i do have a critically important question. CRITICAL, PEOPLE. and i want the truth.
ahem. here goes.
if you could be any fictional character (walk in their shoes, in the story), who would you be?
i was thinking this question through. first, i thought Howl's Moving Castle. it's one of my very favorite books. BUT as much as i love this story, there's no way i'd want to be Sophie Hatter--or rather, go through what Sophie goes through (this will make sense if you've read the book). so scratch that one.
perhaps Melanie Stryder in my other favorite book (The Host)? uh, wait, i live in Phoenix, and no air conditioning (plus alien domination) are definitely BAD. scratch.
Hermione Granger? too much dangerous magic, plus she marries Ron. (sorry, Ron.) that one's out.
how about Meliara Astiar from Crown Duel/Court Duel (my favorite duet)? there's danger, but just enough to make things exciting. court life. intrigue. mysterious romance.
i would so be Meliara.
who would you be, and why?
