Express Yourself: Fictional Character Reflective of Me

The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is made possible by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.

The prompt for this week is: Pick one fictional character who you think reflects your personality.

This is a fun one to think about.  There is no character that completely reflects who I am, but there are certain aspects of myself that I can see in fictional characters.  One of those characters is Susan Ivanova from Babylon 5.

She's more confident than I am, but her temper mirrors mine.  I'm a redhead, so that's my excuse.  She's also clever, which I would like to think I am, and she is thoroughly determined in everything she does.  She may not be perfect (after all, who is?), but she's pretty badass.

Here's a video that compiles a few memorable scenes with Ivanova.  It's kind of long, but you can skip through and get a general idea of her personality.

What fictional character reflects your personality?


  1. I've never been a sci-fi fan, but I can always admire strong women. I'm going to have to try this writing prompt. I'm signing up.

  2. Cool. I've never seen Babylon 5, but I've heard of it.

  3. Uh oh, I've never seen Babylon 5 either. But that's a fun question to think about.
