Booking Through Thursday: Relating

Are there any fictional characters whom you have emulated (or tried to)? Who and why?

What literary character do you feel is most like you personality-wise (explain)?

Oh, definitely. It fluctuates based on my pop cultural consumption, but at the moment, it’s Wonder Woman. To quote from the first volume of Trinity: “An Amazon takes life as a constant challenge, Superman–not merely to accomplish our goals–but to excel, to better ourselves–to do whatever we set ourselves to faster, more cleanly, more effectively than ever before” (44).

In terms of a character who is like me, no one really leaps to mind. Panicky but generally laidback asexuals who crack bad jokes all the time aren’t a particular popular character type, for some reason. I do identify with a wide variety of characters, but, at the risk of sounding like a precious special snowflake, I don’t know if there’s many like me.
