The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.
This week's question is: What book/character characters do you relate to the most?
I can see a bit of myself in a lot of fictional characters. I'll share a couple of them with you.
One is Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series. I've always been a bit odd, and I tend to say strange things in the midst of otherwise serious conversations. She's a strong character who isn't afraid to be herself, even if that true self doesn't quite fit in with the world around her. Yet in the end she finds real friends who care for her the way she is, and that's a good lesson for anyone.
Another character I can relate to is Daria from the show of the same name. Daria Morgendorfer is a writer, she doesn't care about being fashionable and fitting in, she hangs with her artist friend Jane (everyone should have an artist friend!), and she looks at the world with a touch of cynicism (or maybe more than a touch). These are all qualities that I can very much see in myself, though I don't think I can pull off the monotone.
Since I chose Daria, I thought I would share this comedy sketch. Fake movie trailers can be great fun, but now I wish they really would make this movie!
