Fictional Characters I Would Like to Meet

Now that I've met (well sort of) the previously fictional blizzard - even if its only a little one. I thought I'd take the chance to write this blog that has been floating around on the backburner in my head....

Fictional People that I'd like to meet...

1. Laura Ingalls Wilder - My favourite story book character/TV show character as a youth - Laura was spunky and had a good heart. Also, the braids rocked and here I am, to a certain extent, following in her footsteps - braids? check, teacher - check?, small, frontier town - well as close as you can get these days short of leaving the planet. Marridge to an older farmer - um... pass for now. I don't know any farmers and the growing season is still quite short here in spite of global warming.

2. Benton Fraser - Who wouldn't want to meet the kindest, politest Canadian RCMP officer ever? And Diefenbaker is pretty cool too.

3. Fitz Farseer - This is more of an obscure reference to the main character of Robin Hobb's "Apprentice Assassin" Series. Granted, Robin Hobb is fairly well known among avid Sci-Fi/Fantasy Readers, but I'm not sure how well that translates to the general public. The books are awesome, well-written, riviting and heartbreaking at times. Only one of the dozens of folk I've made read the series hasn't loved it. As for Fitz himself, I figure we'd get along good, and I'd me more than happy to hang out with him and his friends. I think I'd pass on the enemies though... they aren't nice.

4. Arthur Dent - well, I don't know that I'd want to hang out with Arthur Dent, but it would have been interesting to meet him and his two headed friend and the see the Heart of Gold in Action.

5. Claire and Jamie Fraser - There is a stack of personality - a woman with plent of courage, grit and determination, not to mention a thick streak of stubbornness and big, old, cranky Scot. Don't know that I would have wanted to live in their time frame, nice to visit, but I like my warm dry reality.

Anywho, I'm sure there are more on my list, but I need to throw up a few more blizzard pictures and move along.
