Wishing A Fictional Reality

My prompt is…. if I could meet a fictional character who would it be?  Really just one? To be clear– I’m going for the original written character – not the person who portrays the character in the show. No doubt they have a way about them that becomes part of that character in your mind.


I’d have to start out with my main cast of characters in the book I’m writing.  The siblings Oliver and Sadie Machen and the dashingly handsome Texas Ranger, Hamlet Abner.

Next I’d be in line at Com icon to meet these if it were possible:

Miss Jane Bennet with her handsome Mr. Darcy. (Pride and Prejudice)

Miss Margret Hale with Mr. Thornton  (North and South -BBC)

Nurse Mary Phinney (Mercy Street)-I need new episodes please!! (Masterpiece Theater PBS)

Robin Loxley (Robin Hood -BBC)

Ross Poldark and Demelza  (Poldark -BBC)

Denise  (Paradise -BBC)

Laura  (Larkrise to Candleford -BBC)

The Dowager (Grannie) (Downton Abby -Masterpiece PBS)

Mr. Tilney  (Northanger Abby -Masterpiece Theater PBS)

Dr. Thorne and Mary  (Dr. Thorne -Amazon)

Optimist Prime  (Transformers)– cause why not! 

Ok, so you got me. I like a few period films and most of them are BBC or PBS.   I love historical books and movies. To write in that genre there is so much to know of history, fashion, language, and even setting.  My favorite characters probably wouldn’t be who there were to me without their opposing nemesis.  The writer does well to make you fall in love with their personality by writing them in a lovable manner.  Perhaps for some, you identify on some level and sympathize with the situation.  They are who they are and we love them to a fault. Being a female, we seem to always line up behind the gal in distress and want better for her.  Then we hopelessly fall in love with the strapping, good looking sensitive type who seems to have it all together or at least the illusion of such. Creating a hopeful sense of a non-reality for the most of society- those who don’t always actually have it together.

There you have it- my two cents worth of favorite flicks and characters.  I’m wondering who would be on your list of characters to meet? 📺📚
