So I've been tagged by both Jaye L. Knight and Morgan Huneke with the Favorite Screen Characters Tag. Truth be told, I was kinda hoping to avoid this, but since I've been tagged, I'll play along.
So, my favorite screen characters, in no particular order.
1. River Song - Doctor Who
River holds a special place in my heart, if only because it was because of her that I resurrected Laura, who is one of my favorite characters. I love characters who are out of sinc with the rest of the cast, and who are brilliant for foreshadowing. "Spoilers Sweetie."
Plus, her arch with the Doctor was so interesting. I may not quite call myself a fan of Doctor Who, but I am certainly a fan of River Song.
2. Bree - Month of the Novel
YouTube videos are still on the screen!
Anyways, I adore the Month of the Novel videos, but I identify best with Bree, the older sister who knows everything about writing (because I totally do, ya know?). I can't count the number of times I've been called by my younger sister, and of recent days, by my younger brother to help them out of a mess that they've written themselves into.
The actress herself is hilarious, may I add?
3. Mrs. Frizzle - The Magic School Bus
I want a magic school bus. 'Nough said.
4. Elsa - Frozen
Again, elder sister here. I love Anna, and I can relate to her bouncy personality, but I like Elsa slightly more. Fun fact about me: Each of my three siblings and I are born in a different season, so we like to pretend with are that season. I'm Winter. Fear me.
5. Larry - Veggietales
Okay, so I'm picking on kids shows here. Fun fact about me: I watch a lot of kids shows. Anyways, I grew up on Veggietales, and Larry has this sense of humor and distinctive voice that just amuses me. And what kid doesn't love his silly songs and on-going banter with Archibald?
(Half-way done. You can do this Kendra!)
6. Madeline - Madeline
I was also a huge fan of Madeline as a kid, so much so that I saved my money and bought all of the dolls. I could/should probably post a picture of them some day. No, they never released all twelve girls, but I have every girl they did, as well as Mrs. Clavel (I can't remember how to spell her name), and Pepito. I also own most of the books.
7. Wesley - Princess Bride
I am purposely trying to avoid characters from movies based on books, because their book version is almost always more predominant in my head, and just confuses me. However, Princess Bride is one story that I've seen more than read, and can we just talk about how awesome and dreamy he is? And he's also Robin Hood (Men in Tights) and unlike other Robin Hoods, he actually uses a British Accent! Plus my aunt dated him for a while. (Actually, it was just a guy who looked like him, but details.)
8. Inigo Montoyo - Princess Bride
"You killed my father, prepare to die."
While I'm on the subject of the Princess Bride, I can't help but also mention my other favorite character from that show. Inigo has such a delicious accent. (And ... I love accents, have I ever mentioned?)
9. Nutcracker - Nutcracker Ballet
I've only ever seen the Nutcracker Ballet on video, so it counts, yes? Yes. Anyways, I believe I've mentioned it before, but I'm slightly obsessed with the Nutcracker, so I can't make a list without mentioning him.
10. GiGi Darcy - Lizzy Bennett Diaries
She had such a small role in the actual book, I enjoyed seeing her come to life in the YouTube series.
And I'll call it quits there. No, I'm not going to tag anyone. I'm already brain-dead after this. In other news, I'm working on a post about the magic system of Rizkaland, so if magic is something you're wary about, you can read this and see how I've reasoned it out. Not sure when it's going to go up, but you can look forward to it!
