I would have to say Mr. Darcy in "Pride and Prejudice"..... what a wonderful character he was, in such a wonderful story!!
The grim reaper. The reason being is because it seems to me someone who is feared by most, but is supposed to help guide you on to something more...People fear death and the grim reaper is neither good nor evil. He doesn't choose who goes where he juss guides you
No need to fear the Grim Reaper if you don't try to look under the cowl. Look the other way and walk on...
Like Death in 'The Book Thief'! If you haven't read it, you should. It's brilliant!
Sherlock Holmes and M Poirot - sleuth creations of A C Doyle and Agatha Christie respectively.
The Toxic Avenger, the first superhero of New Jersey! Or Stubbs the Zombie as long as he changed his dietry habits.
I always thought the super-heoes of the Big Apple were the Ninja Turtles - the accidental result of throwing pets and toxic waste into the sewers...(Where're the pizzas, man?) What about that giant croc? Not so much a 'hero' as a 'wake-up' call.
Doctor Watson - without him Sherlock Holmes would have been in a fix long before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 'killed him off' in Switzerland, tussling with Moriarty at the Reichenbach waterfall.
Watson was the 'alter ego' of A. Conan Doyle himself, his sharp observation skills transferred to Holmes' character. The author was an eminent doctor before embarking on his writing career, originally submitting the stories to 'Strand Magazine' in Victorian London.
I know, it's so beautiful there are so many Holmes Watson admirers. Exactly how I feel too sir, holmes was childish and liked to be pampered and Watson selflessly responded out of sheer respect and honour. I think Jeremy Brett is the best version yet
Edward Hardwicke was Jeremy Brett's Dr Watson... The image was ex-Army with 'controlled' moustache, grey flannel for town and tweed suits for country; kept his army revolver for emergencies, a 'weather eye' on Holmes' wellbeing. A friend in need...
Robin Hood wasn't completely fiction, although Maid Marian might have been added to 'pull the women' into this otherwise fraught world of men in tights. On a TV programme a while ago Magnus M 'unearthed' three likely candidates between 11th-14th Cent
Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio! He was a happy little optimist that you could put in your pocket. OK, it's just a fairy tale. But I wouldn't mind having him around when times were tough! "Always let your conscience be your guide" is his theme song.
I would have to say Bugs Bunny.. the condition of the world we live in.. a little laugh would go such a long way.. and who better than that character that made us laugh when we were children...
An' I'll be Elmer Fudd, 'Bam-bam!' Personally, Daffy Duck was my fave, whacky and an insatiable appeitie for self-destruction!
What's up doc? hehe... loved him, such a witty, mischevious little fellow!
Hepzibah Jeffries of Emily Brightwell's "Mrs. Jeffries" series of cozy murder mysteries. Mrs. J. is the Housekeeper for an unmarried, middle-aged Inspector at Scotland Yard who isn't fussy about whether the mansion he inherited in a posh Victorian London neighborhood could pass the white glove test. So, with the help of the rest of the household staff, she's free to spend her days investigating (and without his knowledge, ultimately solving) his murder cases. Living in a mansion in a "good" neighborhood but not treated like a servant is the best of both worlds, far as I'm concerned.
Ms. Brightwell, btw, is rather lax about London geography, but the plots are as intricate as any of Agatha Christie's. ;D
The genie in a bottle--still having a hard time believing he/she/it isn't real.
Depends what kind of bottle he's in. Obviously it's spirits - my favourite Genie would have to come in a bottle of 'Famous Grouse' or 'Jack Daniels'. The first wish would be "pour yourself".
Darcy is definitely a great contender but I love Atticus in 'To Kill a Mocking Bird'; he's so fair and clever and gently guides the children without being authoritarian. Very wise and a lovely man.

Who is your favorite fictional character, why and how do they influence your life today?From early childhood in to my teens, I admired and aspired to be Spock from Star Trek. Why? No emotions and amnesty from their associated pains. "Illogical, Captain!" was my answer to most things at...

How would Sherlock Holmes have responded to this?There is a popular saying people use when hearing someone make an absolutely needless observation: "No sh*t, Sherlock?". How do you think Sherlock Holmes would have responded to this remark if say Watson had uttered it?
