This week's Follow Friday question is:
"If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?"My immediate response, since I just finished re-reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, is Hermione Granger. I already relate to her in a lot of ways, so it's an easy pick for me - frizzy hair, nose in a book, can't keep her mouth shut in class most of the time...she's sometimes a bit more bossy than I am, though. I was asked to be Hermione at work one year around Halloween, back when I was in high school and worked in a gift shop at Six Flags theme park.
I was introduced to Twilight when a former co-worker mentioned that I reminded her of Bella. I was curious enough to read the book, haha, and I do see elements of myself in her as well. Introverted, pale, a little awkward and a bit of a klutz. I don't know if I would want to BE her, though. Blood doesn't bother me, and the idea of a love that really does last forever is very appealing to me, of course, but I don't know. I've seen the other movies, but maybe I need to read the rest of the books before I could say whether or not I'd mind switching places with her. My favourite character from the series, though, is Alice. Some of you, if you have seen the not-thumbnail version of my profile picture, may or may not have recognized the choker I'm wearing as a retail replica of hers.
