Character you’d most like to have over for tea?
Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. I think Elinor and I would get along very well, and could talk about how much we love our families while we sipped our tea and ate scones. Mmm, scones.
Character you’d most like to have as a sibling?
Harriet M. Welch from Harriet the Spy. My actual sister was nicknamed Harriet for a long time, because when the movie came out, she and Michelle Trachtenberg looked a lot alike. They don’t really look alike anymore but there were enough similarities between bookHarriet and my sister that it wouldn’t seem an odd addition to the family.
Character you’d most like to be friends with?
Lola Cepp from Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, in whom I see myself entirely, and Cyd Charisse from Gingerbread et al, who is nothing like me. Lola is the sister of my heart, the kind of person you could be friends with for a lifetime. Cyd Charisse is so much wilder than myself, but she’s a little crazy and I think there’s a level on which we’d understand each other very well.
Character you’d most like to have as a cousin?
I don’t have any first cousins at all in real life! I’m not really sure what a cousinly relationship entails. I think I would like Claudia Kishi from the Babysitters’ Club as my cousin. She could teach me all the good places to hide junkfood, and also how to dress well.
Character you’d most like to have an adventure with?
Sequiro from Piers Anthony’s mode books, because he’s a telepathic horse.
Favorite quirky character?
Pippi Longstocking leaps to mind. Do I have to explain?
Favorite love-to-hate character?
I don’t love to hate anybody, but I do think The White Witch from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is incredible.
Favorite bad guy?
Snape, because he’s not. But he is. But he’s not. But he is. Etc.
No one tagged me specifically, so I’m not going to tag anyone else specifically, but if you want to do it, you should.
