The last top five... for now.

Going through old e-mails, I missed one!

You all know the deal by now.

Comment and I'll give you a topic for either a top five or a top ten.

delerium69 gave me; Top 10 fictional characters you'd love to be (can be any medium)



This one is surprisingly hard - adventures worth reading about or
watching on TV are generally hell to live through. Batman and the
Crow are cool and all, but thier lives *suck*.


  1. Any of the protagonists from Spider Robinson's Lady Sally books.
    They made a big impression on me in my adolescence; part of why I am
    the way I am now is me thinking, back then "I want to live like *that*".

  2. Some miscellaneous inhabitant of Beta Colony from Lois McMaster
    Bujold's Miles Vorkosigan books. Horrible things happen to main
    characters. Bit players retire to pleasant lives.

  3. Someone with utility fog! Preferably someone who does not live
    under a dystopian totalitarian government, and who is not being hunted
    by interstellar assassins.

  4. Either Spider or Charlie from Gaiman's Anansi Boys; though, if
    Charlie, Charlie at the *end* of the book.

  5. Daemon Sadi from Bishop's Dark Jewels books, because, leather pants.

  6. While I find the books boring to read, it seems to me that LKH's
    Merry Gentry has a pretty good life.

  7. A Jedi knight in the old republic. Light saber!

  8. Some B-rate Avenger or Justice League member. I get superpowers
    with minimal responsibility, unless there is a big crossover, in which
    case I may get killed to impress upon readers how serious the
    situation is.

  9. An elf. Elves are neat.

  10. A retired ninja.

8. Go for Wildcat from the Justice Society. He *supposedly* has nine lives, but the DCU writers can never keep track of how many he has 'spent' under other titles/stories, therefore he will never die. And he packs a mean right hook.

Don't forget the interview I gave you!

Would that be a generic elf or a LOTR elf?

I think after I finish the current two books I'm completing/beginning, I will *finally* get to "Anansi Boys." I remember listening to Neil do a reading of it at the Library of Congress book fest a few years ago and really wanting to read it, but never having the chance. Now that I've begun patronizing the local library system, I'm going to make myself get to the books on my list.

Generic elves, or, if pressed, elves as I have imagined for the D&D world I have never managed to successfully run a campaign in.
