It’s that time again. The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews. Today’s topic is: Characters I’d Like to Meet
Narrowing down this list was HARD. I have dozens more I’d like to add here, but here’s what I’ve settled on since you likely don’t want to read hundreds of names 🙂
Aslan (Chronicles of Narnia): I’d only like to meet him if I wasn’t naughty. I remember the description of Edmund after he met with Aslan before the war in “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”. But I’d like to meet and know him as Lucy does. He’s so caring and wise and loving toward her. He makes her feel safe and he imparts wisdom. I just feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I think of their relationship.
Eve Dallas and Roarke (the “In Death” series): I can’t get enough of these two (and their extended “family”). The main reason I nab and read every book in this series as soon as it releases is because watching this couple, this deeply broken but healing couple, grow is fascinating. I love Eve’s snark, too. She reminds me a bit of me (though I’m decidedly less kick ass).
Gwydion (The Chronicles of Prydain): A loving and loyal friend, a capable warrior, a wise confidant, a good man. While I crushed on Taran and dreamed of being Eilonwy, Gwydion was the character I admired and would most like to meet in this series (except maybe Gurgi, just because he makes me happy). This series was my all time favorite as a kid. Love.
Elrond (Lord of the Rings series): I loved so many of the characters from these books, but Elrond was one of my favorites. And who wouldn’t want to meet an Elf? He’s wise and kind and loving and quirky and he has a wicked sense of humor. I think it would be a lot of fun to hang out with him.
F’lar and Lessa (The Dragonriders of Pern): This series had me dreaming of impressing my own dragon (or at the least, a fire lizard) and F’lar and Lessa were (of course) two of my favorite characters from it. Okay, I have a great fondness for Master Robinton and Menolly as well, but I’d really love to meet dragonriders and perhaps talk them into a ride… 🙂
Vanyel (the Chronicles of Valdemar): I love this series so much. Mercedes Lackey is one of the best fantasy authors I’ve read. I’ve enjoyed all her characters, but Vanyel … there was so much emotion in his story that I really fell in love with him. I cried real tears when he died in the last book of the series (this isn’t a spoiler, really, btw since his legend and demise is sung by all the bards in every last one of the books in the series, most of which were written prior to his trilogy). He was so honorable, so broken, so kind, so powerful. Just such an amazing, real character… and now I want to go back and re-read the books…
