Following Friday (7)


Q.If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?

 

Good question! Do I have to pick just one? Too bad, I refuse...

 

1) The first one that came to mind was London from Scoundrel by Zoe Archer (which is the second book in her very awesome Blades of the Rose quartet). The reason is that she has an adventurous, interesting life and a really sexy husband.

2) Clair from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon for similar reasons, but also because I she got to travel in time a bit. And time travel, even the accidental kind, is just plain cool.

3) Jax from Ann Aquirre's Sirantha Jax series, because she gets to travel through space using weird science and psychic powers. Very cool.

 

Those were the ones that immediately came to mind for me. There are a lot of characters who I love but would NOT want to live as. Pretty much anyone in a dystopian novel, for example.

    So you're a fellow Supernatural fan?! Can we be Supernatural BFF's? ;) I am pretty much obsessed with that show. Seriously, it's the best. Have you ever been to a SPN Con.? They're so much fun.

    Great choices by the way!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  22. Claire would be a great choice! I can totally get behind that. Time travel and Jamie and the Highlands! It'd be an awesome time.

  25. I don't know if I would want to be Jax, being a jumper sounds really rough! But I guess the rewards are pretty great. :)

  30. Great, you could think of so many characters in an instant. I've to resort to Harry Potter Series for most answers in FF.
