This month’s prompt is:
What characters are you most like?
And yes, this is actually my first time participating in the chain. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while, but in previous months I’ve always been too busy or too scared. Anyway, here I am doing it! Today, I will be letting all of you in on my secret: my doppelgängers. Without further ado…
1. Neverfell from A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge
Frances Hardinge is one of my favourite authors. A Face Like Glass is my favourite work of hers. Neverfell is one of my favourite characters. Neverfell’s intelligent, special, quirky, and a natural leader. (Except I come off bossy while she doesn’t.) She comes off shy, and is at first, but when the time calls for it, she can be loud. I feel like I’m talking about myself! She also has a hint of self doubt- when Grandible would make her wear a mask while meeting other people, she worried that it was because she was extremely ugly (while it wasn’t); and I have low self esteem.
Well, more like Anne in the first couple of books. Fierce, hot tempered Anne. I never read the last couple of books, but later on she seemed, I don’t know, less fierce I guess? Anyway, I have a short temper. I do get angry rather easily, much to everyone’s dismay. And I love Anne’s personality and character. She has a witty sense of humour, which people say I have, but I’m not too sure myself. She also has an amazing imagination! Which again, I seem to have. People also always seem to have high expectations towards Anne- starting off when Marilla and Matthew expected a boy. (Not that she could help that. :P) I guess I’m different to most people, and not what you normally would expect.Anyway, she’s an awesome character that I can relate to.
3. John Watson from The Sherlock Holmes Stories by Arthur Conan Doyle
It takes me a while to finally understand something, even though when I understand it, I understand it suddenly and fully. I also always happen to be the ‘sidekick’ of my friends, and tend to be in the shadows most of the time. Though I do have my light bulb moments like Watson!
4. Ron Weasley from The Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling
Why I’m like Watson as well. Even though I don’t think I would be quite as brave as Ron, though he is often overshadowed by Harry. He’s also quirky, funny, and awesome.
From what I think of myself, these are the characters I relate most with. Would you agree? 😀
