Name that Character

Ganked from callirhoe

Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/etc. that you've had an obsessive fannish love of at some time in your life. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each item.

Note: This is forcing me to clarify favorites. That may be hard. And because I'm really only 'fannish' about the top five, I'm just picking stuff I really enjoy.

1. Earth's Children series, J.M. Auel

2. Hatrack River series, Orson Scott Card

Because I really like the Kushiel's Legacy series by Jacqueline Carey and cannot narrow down one favorite from the series, I'm picking from each book. I cheat:

3. Kushiel's Dart (two character tie)

4. Kushiel's Chosen (again, tie)

5. Kushiel's Avatar (just one, ha ha)

6. Dr. Seuss (good luck with the favorite - I doubt it will be guessed)

7. The Old Testament (God doesn't count - He's everyone's favorite)

8. The New Testament (Jesus doesn't count either - Sorry, Christ - but it's a tie between two others)

9. Lord of the Rings

10. Memoirs of a Geisha

11. That 70s Show

12. The Simpsons -- Otto,mc_questionmark (tough call between him, Smithers, & Comic Book Guy)

13. A Hard Day's Night

14. Princess Bride

15. Labyrinth

16. The Goonies

17. Hercules (sci-fi version, not disney)-- Autolocus, the self-absorbed thief, mc_questionmark

18. The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

19. Prison Break

20. The Epic of Gilgamesh -- Enkidu, callirhoe

You got Enkidu right, although I couldn't remember his name til I saw it. ;) Inigo was close with #14, but one person barely edged him out. The rest are not right. :P

I have no clue about your favourites, but I'll give it a go for fun.

6 The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins - Bartholomew Cubbins being your favourite character

7 Moses

8 John

9 Gandalf

11 Fezz

12 Otto

14 Andre the Giant

15 the crazy old lady who has all the junk outside her house

17 Autolocus, the self-absorbed thief

I'm not familiar with the rest, sorry.

Oh, good guesses! Moses was a close one, especially since I love OSC's Stone Tables book, but no. ON 12, though - I hadn't picked Otto originally, since I'd overlooked him. I think he may win, though. Good job. (Except for Fes, I think is how the spell it 'Foreign Exchange Student'. I'm not a Fes girl by any means. :P)

Oh man, and I just realized I overlooked Autoclus, too. Didn't know his name. He also beats out the fav I had in Iolus (sp?)

have you picked the latest Kushiel's book?

I haven't. I start school in two weeks so I have to save my $ (darnit anyhow!)
Jun. 8th, 2006 01:39 am (UTC)
No, it's not out here yet and I'm broke anyway. I think it's released the 12th. I just signed with a client who should pay me around the 15th, so if that works out, I'm heading straight for the bookstore!

So you're not hazarding a guess as to any of my favorite characters from the books?

There is NO WAY to tell which ones you like. There are SOOO many good characters :)

I'm not even sure I could pick one or two that were my favorites. One of your friends ascadulineadept contacted me to tell me about the Kushiel's board s/he manages. They had a poll there it was REALLY hard to choose just one to vote for. In the end I HAD to vote for Melisande (because she commanded it and I obey) but my second favorite is Alcuin (poor beautiful, tragic, clueless Alcuin).

I think my absolute favorite moment in ALL the books is when he asks Delauney if he wants to see his marque. *le sigh* gives me chills just thinking about it!

That's why it's interesting to see what my friends would guess. The folks who are members of night_court would have a better chance, I think. ;)

She sent me that link too, but I was just overwhelmed with discussion boards at the time. I saved it for the future, though.

I like that part too, but I'm not sure I could pick an absolute favorite part! It was hard enough narrowing it down to 1-2 characters per book.
