Another bookish meme from Facebook

November 22, 2010

The Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen fictional characters (television, films, plays, books) who’ve influenced you and that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.

  1. Turtle Wexler, The Westing Game
  2. Kalypso, The Odyssey
  3. Kit and Nita of So You Want to Be a Wizard
  4. E.T. (I told myself I wasn’t going to include movies but…)
  5. Kermit the Frog
  6. Mulder and Scully
  7. Gideon Oliver, of the Gideon Oliver mysteries by Aaron Elkins
  8. Honor/Beauty- Robin McKinley’s Beauty.
  9. Harriet the Spy
  10. Janet Carter, of various Tam Lin retellings.
  11. Ender Wiggin of Orson Scott Card’s Ender series.
  12. Lady Sally Callahan and Mike Callahan
  13. George Cooper- the Tortall series by Tamora Pierce
  14. Beatrice and Benedick- Much Ado About Nothing
  15. Angus Bethune- from the movie/short story “Angus”

3 bonuses cause I wanted to keep this bookish but couldn’t exclude Kermit, Mulder or Scully or E.T

A Charles Wallace Murray of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Swiftly Tilting Planet

B Holden Caulfield (hated him and the book, he’s like a cautionary tale to both my behavior and reading)

C Omri of Indian in the Cupboard.
