What a very interesting meme, but also a very difficult one. I think I've done something like this before, but since I really like the thought of more family members, I'll do it again.

Most characters in books and movies aren't exactly the sort of persons you'd like in your family. They're usually attractive or fascinating and you find yourself sympathising with them - if you like them. But to have them as family members is a different matter.

Anyway, here goes:

Conrad in Conrad's Fate by Diana Wynne Jones is a boy who really likes books, which seems to be quite rare in most literature. And he's pretty nice too, so I think I'd like him as a brother or as a boyfriend :).

Cat in Charmed Life in the same series as Conrad's Fate - Chrestomanci - by DWJ, would make a sweet little brother. Strangely enough, DWJ has said that she intended for Cat to be autistic. That surprises me, since I seem to be able to understand him just fine and I don't think I'm autistic myself.

Next up is Charmain in House of Many Ways by DWJ. She's a girl who loves books, like I do, and unlike me, she's probably a lot more efficient at what she does, though perhaps not very nice, at least not at the beginning of the story. Efficiency would complement our family very nicely.

Peter from the same book is not efficient, so a lot more like us, and that would probably make him a nice cousin maybe?

I guess it's obvious that I really love DWJ:s books. LOL.

Next up is another author though. I really like the little Woodies in Moominsummer Madness. They're so cute and I'd love to adopt them and take really great care of them. Poor little mites.

Actually, there are two other characters in this book that are among my very favorites in the Moomin series - Misabel and the Whomper. Misabel is a lot like me but hopefully a bit worse. LOL. Someone who doesn't understand her, might call her whiny, but I do understand and I realize that her life must have given her reason to feel the way she does. The Whomper seems nice and is quite cute too and if I was MIsabel I'd really want him to be my boyfriend. Misabel could be my sister, so that's number five on this list.

But since this is the Moomin series I'm talking about, I can't resist mentioning two other favorites. I promise I won't go into Fillyjonk and the Hemulen this time. :) But I just have to mention Toffle and Miffle. They are so adorable and I'd like to adopt them too and make sure they never have to be scared again.
