... I'll show you mine, if you show me yours!
Which fictional character would you most like to be? I'd be T'Pol from Star Trek Enterprise. Why? Because she gets to do it with everybody's favourite body: Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker. AKA Connor Trinneer! Yum. Although, if and when I do get to be her, I want to be the Mirror Universe version with long hair, super-pout and 2269 USS Defiant mini-skirt uniform!
But, which one are you most like? Rincewind from the Discworld , or Ezri Dax from Deep Space Nine. Both have something overpowering lurking within them. Rincewind has one of the Octavo spells in his head that prevents him from memorising any other spells because they are too scared to share. Whereas Ezri has a 350 year old slug inside her with nine other personalities (10, if one includes Verad) all vying for attention. I suppose there might also be a smidgeon of Marc St. James, from Ugly Betty, when I'm having a Gay Day, much like Larry Grayson!
What about you IDV?
I don't know any fictional characters. Whenever I do become acquainted with one, it has this disconcerting tendancy of becoming real.
For instance, at this very moment, Dr. Frankenstein is in the cellar doing something unspeakable with 10,000 volts and a pan of over-boiled broccoli.
I wondered what that smell was. Speaking of which, what're we having for tea?
* rummages in the fridge *
I thought we were having kitten-en-croute with that broccol...
I see you've found the bowl of brains. Are you going to tell the good doctor, or shall I?
Senile, myopic old git...
See what I mean? What kind of aspirational character is that?
How are we going to get rid of him?
Well, I thought a well timed Daisy Duke-esque kick to his posterior as the old duffer's bending over to switch on the TV. With any luck, he'll fall through the inter-universal barrier into Stinky's Universe.
Excellent! Do you reckon we've put enough links in this post?
I think so. It should keep them going for a bit. We're so good at assisting with their procrastination.
But aren't we going to make them do something? Like answer the same questions we just have?
Oh, OK... Right you lot! Answer those 'fictional character' questions up there, either in the comments, or do a post of your own.
