Whether (s)he be from a book, a movie, a play, a cartoon or any other work of fiction, who has inpsired you the most? Who would you love to meet if they were real? I've got to go with George Bailey, Del Griffith, Atticus Fitch and King Arthur for starters...

Dear 1GreatGal, I love the ideas of chivalry that surround King Arthur's round table too. Here's a significantly paraphrased story I recently heard: King Arthur was captured by a ruler in another kingdom and his ransom for release was the answer to this question: "What do women want?" The knights of the round table scoured the earth looking for the answer. After weeks they found a hideously ugly witch who knew it. In exchange for the answer, however, she demanded Sir Lancelot become her lover. King Arthur told his friend the price was too high and that the knights should look for someone else with the answer but Lancelot agreed to the witch's demand. The witch explained that what women want is the ability to choose what they get. The rival king was satisfied this was the correct answer and released King Arthur. The witch demanded that Sir Lancelot be brought to her that evening. Lancelot, upon going to the castle of the witch on his first night as her lover was shocked to find a beautiful woman in her place. The witch explained, "my hideous form is reserved for during the day, but at night I become a beguiling mistress." "Now Lancelot," the witch went on, "you can decide whether I am beautiful during the day when all your friends will see me but hideously ugly at night when we are alone, or I can be ugly during the day and beautiful for you at night. Which do you choose?" Lancelot, without hesitation, responded, "I choose whichever you prefer" and with that, the witch decided she would be beautiful in both the day and the night based on his answer.

I would be the wild tribal queen to the savage tribe of johsnins.They were the white boys who jumped ship. Not sure if anyone ever wrote about this charactor, but i do know she existed. OMG~ I just remebered. I love the Captain in the movie, "Master and Commander, Far Side of the World." He reminded me of Rj. Can I be his wife ? When he gets home from three years at Sea ? That would be delicious.

Dear Lexy, I'm not sure if I buy that one. Besides, is he a favorite because you feel an attraction to him or because he emulates some aspect of your character?

Re: angelface10 write: BlueEyz.. Definately,... WILLIAM WALLACE, the Welch, freedom fighter, MEL GIBSON played in the movie, " BRAVEHEART "...... BRAD PITT as " ACHILLES," in the movie, TROY SEAN CONNERY as JAMES BOND, in " GOLDFINGER " Just to name a few... LAST... but certainly not least, " PRINCE CHARMING " ; )

William Wallace was not fictional and was born 2 miles from my home. Also not Welch ! He was Scottish lassie ! "You may take our lives but you will never take our FREEDOM" I watched it in the movies with an English friend. Bad idea. Just as well I didnt have a sword with me - LOL ;-) Also Sean Connery wasnt really 007? ;-)

Hi BlueEyz, Although it may seem a bit odd, my new favorites are the entire cast of "Heroes". Actually, my daughter turned me on to this show. -Save the cheerleader, save the World- and, of course, DENNY CRANE!

I'd like to meet Rachel Morgan from Kim Harrison's books. She is flawed (as are we all) but she kicks A$$ and has a huge heart. Besides, who wouldn't want to meet a good witch?

just being silly Ide say any of the charactors from The Lord of the Rings......the good guys that is. Each one of them was carefully crafted to appeal to large numbers of women..and who didnt love Legolas or Aragorn ?? and ya know..Frodo was smoking for a short guy ! I also liked Edward Scissorhands and Jack Skellington. Almost forgot PinkY and the Brain !

Dear Dorma, I can't believe we missed Greek mythology! I also like Hercules and Prometheus.

Dear Larry, That is very interesting the way you worded my question: are fictional characters as real to us as people we haven't met? I was thinking more along the lines of: are real people we've never met before (and have no chance of meeting) essentially fictional characters to us? Sounds similar but very different questions. That's why I said it bordered on quantum physics and the like. I am totally intrigued by the way people can be thinking and talking about the same thing but a small difference in wording makes all the difference in meaning. BTW - adding to the favorite fictional character list: - UNDERDOG, WILLY WONKA, IAGO (bad guy but fascinating), SHANE SCULLY, "CARTER THE GREAT", "FRANCIS URQUHART"

mine would be as follows: McGyver-for his intelligence and knowledge(and the duct tape!!) Duncan MacCloud - The Highlander - for the love he and Tessa have also Betty Boop- for her sexiness Tasmanian devil-just because I find him adorable the M&M characters - they are sooo cute Sherlock Holmes - for his intelligence Ghost - for the love between Patrick Swazye & Demi Moore driving Miss Daisy- for the friendship that develops ( and I love Morgan Freeman!! & Jessica Tandy)

Ok, Cassie- on to your questions, I had to think about them for a bit before responding. Easy one first. I always preferred Charlotte. Never got the whole "HEEEAAAATHCLIIIIFFFF!" thing. Jane Eyre was always a more interesting protagonist to me, complicated and hard to sympathize with. I like that Charlotte was able to give her some humanity, while still making her rather unlikeable. Amelia or Becky? Once again, you hit upon characters that are difficult to like. These women acted as perfect foils for each other and both have their strengths, as well as their flaws. I think I am more inclined toward Becky, though she may be an adulteress and a murderer. She was portrayed as being a good friend to Amelia, despite her devious intentions. Besides, Amelia seems to be the kind of woman that things just happen to. I don't like women that get vacuous and complacent. Becky may be calculating and vicious at times- but at least she has the wherewithal to create her own circumstances. The Ahab/Moby Dick question is both the easiest and hardest for me to answer. I respect Ahab's determination- but as he descends into obsession, I get a little concerned. When you take all that Moby Dick may symbolize (and this is always unique to the reader, one of the greatest things about the story) I have to lean toward good old Moby. Fate, God, goals, circumstances beyond our control, good, evil- all noble truths being manifested in the whale. What a rich character. Especially when you consider that he is, in fact, a whale.

My favourites are...: 1.Legolas..[The Lord of the Rings] for his aged wisdom....faithfulness and loyalty to his friends and for his sense of righteousness 2.Mr.Weasley....[Harry Potter]Even though he worked for the ministry of magic.....He never once looked down on anyone sanctimoniously...Regardless of who they are [brought his children up the same way]...he believed in equality.. Hagrid...Hermione......Harry Potter and Ron......for their faiths....and for knowing....that all is not always as it seemed at first....:) 3.Quasimodo.....Because he didn't let his outer appearance deter him from making the most of himself....and for allowing me to comprehend....that....people fear that which, they do not know.. 4..Captain Jack Sparrow......Because he was full of doubts as in his own abilities and fearful of his own shadow.....But; that with courage.....You can accomplish almost anything.. Just a few...lol...:)

Dear Sep, Yes, we got him before, not too inspirational but definitely a fiction. For everyone else, we're discussing our favorite fictional characters and we've had everything from cartoons (Betty Boop) to superheros to classic characters (Falstaff, Hamlet) to the entire cast of the Princess Bride. Who's your favorite?

Dear Cassie, No, I didn't hate Daisy, I thought she was not in control of herself and messed up a lot of people's lives but I didn't bear any animosity to her. That could be colored by the fact she was cute and sweet in the film version (BTW-Sam Waterson rules). I did, however, love Gatsby and would add him alongside Bond on the emulation list!
