    If you could meet one fictional character, who would it be?

    Everybody has a favorite fictional character, whether from books, movies, or video games.  If you ever had a chance to meet one, who would it be and why?

    Well, this may sound weird but it wouldn't be a person character, it would be the mansion from Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House". If I could meet it I'd do everything in my power to make the demonic force that possessed that house and enslaved the ghosts have a headache that would send it fleeing. I'd bring a music player, turn on some AC/DC full blast, party all night and probably even watch some good porno with my girlfriends. I don't think that abstemious jerk would care for that one iota smile

      Nice!  Love the twist on the question.  Yeah, that movie had one of the freakiest scenes I ever saw.  Love to see that house go down.

    Mrs. Annie Feely from the book Suds in Your Eye, written by Mary Lasswell--a really delightful book written during WW2 about 3 old gals that live together in Mrs. Feely's junkyard, "Noah's Ark" because she has two of everything.  She was a kick!

    Dr. Dolittle would be fun to meet.  Talk to the animals, how cool is that?  It certainly would make for an interesting story.

      GREAT answer.  That would be totally awesome.  You always wonder what your pet really thinks of you.

    Phillip Marlowe's Raymond Chandler would be my choice. He was often morally conflicted about his work, eschewing divorce cases whenever possible.  Tough guy w/a heart of gold. The kind of person you want on your side.

    Great question.

      People always talk about the guy you'd want at your back in an alley fight.  That was him.

    I would like to meet the superhero Mr. Automan, if anyone remember him from the 80's. He was a great guy and did wonderful things at that time.

      I never had the pleasure of knowing him.

    If I could meet one fictitious characters it would definitely be Dr. Who. I would love to hear all of his stories of the various alien species and how he has saved the world every week. smile

      A man with that kind of experience is worth talking to.

    It would be Mr. Sherlock Holmes and get a session of his deductions on me! The first time I got hold of the book of his adventures I was hooked and I would have wanted more of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's work.

      So true.  I'm willing to bet every fan wishes they could have that done on them.

    There are so many characters I would love to meet - Albus Dumbledore, Sirius Black, Hermione Granger, Daenerys Targaryen, all of the Starks (except Sansa), absolutely no one at all from Twilight, everyone from Superman - even Lex Luthor's stupid sidekick - but probably most of all I would really like to meet up with Tyrion Lannister - even though there would be no point having drinks with him because I would never be able to keep up...

      Sadly I haven't had the pleasure of getting to know the GOT crew yet.  I have the first book and plan to read it but as for the rest of your choices, all excellent.

      A classy choice, Ronilo.  Fitting since his new movie is coming out too.

      That laugh alone is worth hearing live.

    LOL!  Uh, not laughing at anyone, just found it interesting that Mel Jay would like to meet all of the Starks except Sansa--when Sansa is the only one I WOULD like to meet, with the exception of her half brother Jon Snow.
    Then again, I've got a sneaking hunch most posters here are thinking of the film versions of these characters.  I've not seen that, only read the books.  There could be a huge difference.

    Mel Jay and I do agree regarding Tyrion Lannister, though.  That's something. smile

    Scarlett O'Hara, the heroine from Margaret Mitchell's Gone With The Wind, is the fictional character I'd most like to meet.
    Although her character seems vain and self centered, she is really an insecure young woman in the beginning of this amazing literary masterpiece.
    As her character develops, through lessons learned from the hardships that have engulfed her and her family, due to the Civil War, she learns to rely on her own wit and strength in order to prevail. At  the core, she still fosters insecurity, as demonstrated by her ill-fated conception of being in love with the wrong man. It is in the final pages that she has come to terms with the fact that her love for Ashley was always a lie. By then, her true love, her husband, Rhett, has decided to leave her, once and for all, leaving her in despair, but only momentarily. For it is then, that she draws from her inner strength, as she had had in so many other crises, that she vows, to win her husband back.
    Her relentless will to persevere, despite the obstacles, is the strong appeal here.
    Her uncanny ability to derail others' without remorse, always for the greater good, of course, only adds to her charm, in my opinion.

      Terrific choice.  A driven woman who overcomes so many things and never gives up.

    So many! It's hard to narrow it down. Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, Han Solo from Star Wars, James Bond, Roland Deschain from The Dark Tower series, and Fox Mulder would be among my top picks. Great question.

    I would have to say Spock. Not the new Spock, but the old one from the original series. He's so logical, I could use some more logic in my life. He's also a genius, and I could use some advice from a genius. Not to mention that he is just one cool dude.

    1. EJ Lambert profile image72

      He is a half human who still embodies the virtues of a Vulcan.  Cool, logical but at the same time compassionate when need be.

    Atticus Finch from the novel 'To Kill a Mockinbird.'  I would want to talk to him as his wisdom on life is immeasurable.

      That is definitely one on my list.  A truly honorable man.
