This is part of the weekly Blogging Challenge over at Long and Short Reviews. If you'd like to participate, you can find the prompts here. They also put up a post every Wednesday where you go and link your response -- and see everyone else's. Check out their homepage to find it.
(I feel a little bad about this honestly, because I like going through everybody else's answers and responding and lately I don't feel like I've been able to do that as much as want or should. But, well... I'm going to put in a short answer for this week because Monday and Tuesday were crazy, so don't feel like you need to comment if you don't want to.)
Anyway, this week the topic is Characters Who Remind Me of Myself and Why, and by the dark and forgotten gods I do not have the energy left for that sort of introspection. I remember writing characters who were what I wanted to be; I remember writing about character who helped me process situations I'd gotten myself into. I remember writing about characters who seemed like fun at the time, and turned out to be more personal than I realized. But at the moment I really can't process any of that.
So I'm going to go another way with this. Because while I don't often look at a fictional character and think, My God, that's me... I do have one moment that strikes me that way every time I watch it... except it reminds me of Beautiful Wife:
"I've done something completely insane," she says. "I've invited all my dads to my wedding and now they all think they're giving me away."
"Hold on," says Skye. "You invited these guys and you didn't tell me?"
"No, no I-- I thought you'd try to stop me."
In the movie, Skye gets a bit upset. I can't really blame him. But this is about the point where I usually find myself lifting a wry eyebrow. Really?
