Which one would you be? Who do you most resemble now? Who would you like to become? Does anyone else ever look in this forum?

It's not that I have a thing about birds, but I think the character which resembles me most is Mathew, the raven.

I always read this forum. I like the discussions about Gaiman, about the stories and all those cool things. And since fewer people post here, the threads are easier to follow.

As for who I resemble? Maybe Richard, or maybe that is just wishful thinking.

I've always sympathized most with Anaesthesia from "Neverwhere" (the guide across Night's Bridge)but that's probably because that was one of my more hateful nicknames growing up (when your given name is Anastazya, you get all sorts of bizarre nicknames). But that character I'm most like is probably Delerium.

I look a lot like Despair but have a nicer face. I acted a bit like Delirium when I was younger.
Now I can relate to Miss Spink the most.

Destruction. Cool

This is prolly on a personal level, but it's just so liberating to actually get to do whatever you want, go wherever you want, no responsibility whatsoever...plus there's that flattering feeling of having quit a job you got tired of even though it's arguably the most essential and influential task in the universe.

Kinda like saying: "Heck screw you all I quit and there ain't a damn thing you can do about it." Big Grin

I also dig the artistic side and all (even if for the most part my works were mediocre LOL...)...

Some days, I'm a lot like Coraline, because I'm smart and brave and hate to be bored. On my off days, I think I'm most like Jessica from Neverwhere, because I can be mind-numbingly fixated and selfish and not even realize it. Sometimes, I wonder if I know what my own motives are.

Who would I like to be? I'd like to be as well-balanced as Death. I'd like to have Barbie's courage in facing the unknown. I'd like to have Delirium's ability to entertain herself. Mad Hettie's tenacity. Una's (from Stardust) patience. But mostly, I would want to be Crowley. Damn, but he looked like he was having fun! Wink

Dream. I mope. In the rain. About girls. A bunch. And then stay up so my brain is screwed up... which sounds counter-intuitive, until you realize i'm trying to induce waking dreams. And then I mope. And write bad poetry.

Honestly, I think I relate most to Dream, I'm uber-angsty and overly emotional to those I'm not stand-offish towards... I also mope, a lot, over many different people, and write semi-decent poetry.

"And if you spin your love around
The secrets of your dreams
You may find your love is gone
And is not quite what it seemed
To appear to disappear
Beneath all your darkest fears
I believe in never, I believe in all the way
But belief is not to notice, belief is just some faith"

Hmm... A bit of Death (hair, clothes, randomness), a bit of Lucien (books, archivist/librarian tendencies), and a bit of Coraline (stubborness, wandering, weird housemates).

Well, a few years ago I would have said the old Dream, but so many things have happened to me in the last few years, and I've been through so many changes, (it almost feels like a literal rebirth sometimes), that I would say now I'm more like Daniel, maybe even with just a bit of Death.

Although there are certainly other characters that I relate to or can see myself as, (and since I've done all Sandman so far, I'm going to stay there), most notably probably Lucien, Orpheus, and, stretching a little bit, Hob Gadling.

Can I go again?!
well i will anyway.
After seening Penny's Who's Who Here thread, and looking at the picture of the corinthian at the characterlist site that is linked on that thread (and the second creation of corinthian), I now say I would be the second Corinthian.
Also Delerium, Dream, Shakespeare.
aheheh. i think.

This is a really tough question for me, as i don't think i'm particularly similar to anyone in the series. Maybe, in demeanor, i'm like Mervyn. In sexual preference, Hazel or Foxglove, certainly, but not so much in character. In some ways i'm probably most like Marco Polo in the desert.

But really...i'd like to be Hunter from Neverwhere.

A friend of mine tells me I'm like Door(?), from Neverwhere. But I haven't read that yet.



I'd like to think of myself as Crowley from Good Omens! Razz

Destruction. (Can't spell today, but you get what I mean, hahaha)

Even though I'm a girl, I see myself most like him. (But then again, being Endless, does gener really matter? Wink )
