Sting Which Character do you Identify with the best?

I am curious to which characters from ME that people in this forum identify with the best, a ME litmus test if you will.

Now this is not your favorite, but who you feel you most resemble, so please post away.

Durelen, this topic came up once before...here's what I said [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] :

I would have to say that I identify most with Eowyn. Being a woman in a (somewhat) man's world. Also, feeling the pain of un-requited love, but moving forward to find new happiness. She is a deep character who feels very real to me

But I would most like to be like Legolas. I love his demeanor and personality, his skill, and his loyalty. The war he is taking part in is not for the elves, win or lose, they will fade into the West. Never-the-less, Legolas fights tirelessly and valaintly.

i thought i remembered a similar topic but wasn't quite sure if it asked the same question or someone just took a tangent and it ended up like that.

Anyway, I forgot to mention who I thought I identified best with. I think Bombadil, when I am around my friends and family i am pretty ironic and very sarcastic(although it is very easy to miss if you don't know me)silly at times and rarely serious. I also have a large store of useless information just like Tom, which I often screw up. Many more comparisons, I don't really think I need to get into at the moment.

I remember this topic too. I feel a bit like poor old Pippin - tries hard, often gets things wrong and makes a mess of things, out of his depth, not the brightest bulb in the box, but very well meaning and loves his friends.

What about all the recent newcomers?

Eowyn...but parts of me resemble Arwen and Galadriel too...can someone take the "recently turned into a corpse" part offff my name please :P
Eowyn is outwardly strong...but inwardly hurt...she loves an ideal until Faramir reveals what it is to love someone truly...the man not the enigma

Without question, it's Shelob for me. "Man's world" indeed! Hah! It's my world, and don't you forget it, or I'll spray you with flesh-eating sinews and drag you off to my black hole!

Before you contradict, consider my solipsist view of the world and ask yourself if it's really worth the trouble.

Oddly enough, Frodo...Can't say that I've saved the world (lately [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ) but there are times that I feel like I see things and think about things that alienate me from the more jovial around me. But when it comes down to it, I can get my grub on and sing bath songs with the best of them!

And the elves, any of them. But alas, another boring story.... [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Ofcourse it's boring but I really identify my self with Frodo. He carries the burdon to dark countries where danger awaits.
That's how I feel sometimes. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

However, I'm NOT walking around sad all my time and then i feel more like Maeglin, somehowe [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img].

I identify most with that fox that came upon the company sleeping in the woods in "three is company" because of his incredible insignificance. Or perhaps Pippin because he's fond of beer. But more seriously Ilvatar because I am god.

I'd say a male elf bowman.Only because sometimes my friends say I look like an elf (in a nice way :-)) and I do archery. Also because I do not have THAT many friends, just a few close ones.

All my life I'm breaking between Eowyn and Merry. To be honest, Eowyn is whom I'd rather like to be like. Merry is more what I really AM.

...Well, he's cynical and dark from time to time (lol, VERY dark, he just doesn't show his feelings). On the other hand, people call him 'Merry' and not without a reason. He IS merry, really, or better, he makes other people so. Um, sarcasm can be funny, don't you think?

Brave when it's needed...

From time to time feeling all alone and depressive (um, remember the ride of the Rohirrim?)

So...that's my life...shortyl. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

I think perhaps Boromir, I see in him human failings and judgements clouded by passion and ambission. Hes mortal and has always stood out in my readings as my favorite.

I love his bravery and frailty, his want to do good and his final doom that reminds me of our mortality.

Boromir.

I think I identify most with Pippin, even though I am a girl. I think this because I try to do things well, but I always screw up and make a fool of myself. Example:
My Dad: Zaelia,(not my real name)Are you deaf?!
Me:What? [blushes at what I just said without thinking, and tries to hide under the table]
I also tend to get myself into trouble. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] I'm not the best behaved kid in the world [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
I learn the hard way, usually by getting grounded [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
I think I also just have the personality of a hobbit: doesn't like change usually, I have a general love of life... But like Pippin, I wouldn't say "no" to an adventure.

Although I am a girl, my flawed character, and my need to comfort, lead me to identify with Boromir. And as it's been said before, Pippin, who has a taste for beer, is close to my heart as well. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
Still, Galadriel, as portrayed by Cate Blanchett, strangely enough, reminded a few of my friends of me, as they told me after seeing the movie. Maybe it has something to do with my complexion, my eyes, or the way I am when I am mad. Go figure.

Frodo.

My life is similar to his, believe it or not. I was faced with a choice between losing everything, my home, my job, my family, my friends, to help those who would never thank me for it, would in fact hate me. There was no reason for me to take action, except that it was the only right thing I could do. It was the only thing that was right, it would neutralize to a large degree a sociopath.

I was told by my allies "wow, you're brave - don't mention my name." I wish I had Sam frankly!

Of course there was no ring or cracks of doom, instead it involved the police, the FBI, the IRS, the States Attorney, two magazine articles and a book to keep people out of a really bad situation. I understand those who read my story find themselves cheering for me, that's what the author said, but for myself I was just quietly going forward knowing full well the price I would pay. I couldn't even admit for one moment that I didn't want to, because even that would weaken my resolve too much.

Didn't save the world, it concerned about 75 people give or take. Not that they know it, or that it matters if they do. I find I don't care, because I knew going in that wasn't relevant. Even if it hadn't worked it's about doing the right thing at any cost, you see? Not even the hope of success.

Now it's over, and I find that despite my happy peaceful life now, there are some wounds that don't heal. Like Frodo I automatically expected I could carry on where I left off after all was said and done and find that's not true. Probably Tolkien knew that from his own life. I don't regret a thing, and would do the same (though it would be a lot harder knowing in advance what it would be like!) But still, you can't go through something like that and not be fundamentally changed. I know firsthand Frodo was quietly very happy he passed the test of his courage and heart, happy to see others safe, but he was tired, like I am. And to explain why, well, it's rather heavy now isn't it? He didn't want the attention because it was another burden, and too much. Trouble is, once you've passed one major moral test, there a thousand little ones to follow and you just want to rest. Escape for a while.

Hi Lush!
No actually, I thought you'd be bored "yeah-yeah-yeah, another windy post Maril [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] - who I identify with is..!"

The simple version: I brought down a rich and powerful "bad guy," a dangerous wacko. And scared the **** out of the States Attorney.

It's about time someone started scaring the &%$# out of attorneys! They have too long a history of scaring the %$#@ out of us!
All kidding asie, you did a brave thing. I have felt firsthand the devastation that occure when rich, powerful bad guys run the show. We need more people like you, in all parts of the world, especially where I come from.
I guess in what you did, the comparison between you and Frodo is appropriate. Although I'm sure you are a bit taller. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

hahahahahahahaha! Taller? Actually no! Frodo and I would see eye to eye, or close to it. I certainly couldn't see over the top of Pippin's head were he blocking my view. But I'm not solid enough to make a hobbit of any kind - or ent despite the long nomme de guerre.

But I was thinking less of the circumstances and more of just understanding the mindset, especially after all is said and done.

-Maril

PS, in all fairness the States Attorney was a decent guy: "You've really stirred up a hornets nest. Do you know how many lawyers I'm dealing with - everyone has one! Even witnesses. Isn't anyone one on your side?" Leaned back, smiling: "Nope." He shook his head in disbelief. "What I'm worried about is your safety, more than anything else."

Funny I said anything. I usually don't talk about it, no one at work knows a thing. Anonymity I guess.

I haven't read the books in a few years and just started again this week. So, I feel a little hasty answering before all the characters are clear in my mind. But Marin sparked a connection for me, between myself and Frodo.

I feel most like Frodo when he is about 1/4 of the way through the journey. He started off innocent and unproved but still aware of life outside his dwellings (at least more that Pippin or Merry, due to Bilbo's and Gandalf's influence). Then he began to complete some the journey and he realized how little he truly knew and how small each of his strides were. At the same time, he gained the knowledge that although his strides were short, they were also meaningful as long as they took him towards his goal.

That's where I am now. I may be a small part of a vast universe but I will find my way.

Maril, sounds like a story I'd like to hear also.

Who do I relate to most? Hmmmm. Maybe Cirdan, doing my part in my own way while watching the world turn.

Indeed, I haven't been here a week, and I am already jumping down people's throats! Nothing to be proud of, of course, but sometimes it's hard to keep the conversation going without a little offensive material. I guess I am no Hobbit in that regard then... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
