Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all self-reflection, as I take a look at some of the fictional characters that remind me of myself. Now, obviously, none of the following characters are exactly me. But each of them have a few character traits that do remind me of myself. Let’s go!
Leah from Leah on the Offbeat
People either love or hate Leah and I’m in the category of those that love her. Sure, she can be rude and say the wrong thing, but she’s a teenager and her fears and insecurities and lashing out reminded me of myself as a teen.
Chandler and Monica from Friends
If anything, I’m definitely a mix of Chandler and Monica (OTP BTW). Sarcasm is my defense plus I’m a bit of a control freak.
Taylor from Queens of Geek
Taylor’s geekiness, fangirliness and social anxiety really spoke to me.
Rory from Gilmore Girls
It may be a cliché for us booklovers, but I still consider Rory as one of the best representations of myself out there. Introverted lover of books, likes to learn new things, loves junk food.
Cath from Fangirl
Take a heavy dose of fangirlyness and add loads of social anxiety and hey, it me!
Lara Jean from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Lara Jean made homebodies cool again. Ain’t nothing wrong with being a homebody! I also relate to her love of escaping into fantasy worlds. I only WISH I could bake like her though.
Yuri from Yuri on Ice
Anxious, insecure and shy softie with a tendency to eat their mood? Me.
Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
One of my earliest role models, Willow reminded me of myself as a teen. She’s a witty, shy nerd, but she’s also an awesome friend (and I hope I am as well).
Any sassy, sarcastic sidekick (think Seth Cohen, Stiles Stilinski or Nick Miller), Jessica Jones (without the badassery but with the same fashion choices and dark humor), Lane Kim from Gilmore Girls (gotta love the music), Samwise Gamgee (the most understated but loyal hobbit I aspire to be at all times), Desi Lee from I Believe in a Thing Called Love (awkward when it comes to love, but lover of kdramas) and Alice from Let’s Talk About Love (Pop Culture Fanatic,…)
