And another [week] bites the dust! (Bet I've used that one already . . . XD) Happy End-Of-The-Week, my friends! Funny thing, I was actually asked a question similar to this in one of my classes in the first week. I think it was during my first day of my Marketing class (because our professor is hilarious and he seems like the type to ask this as an ice breaking question). I ended up listing two characters that I felt I would ideally identify with in the fantasy version of myself in my own head, and then I listed another character that I felt was closer to who I am in reality :P To learn more, read on!
#5: Reality - Eadlyn Schreave from The Heir by Kiera Cass! A quote from Eadlyn early in the book helps to sum up why I would choose to include her in this list:
"You are Eadlyn Schreave. You are the next person in line to run this country, and you will be the first girl to do it on your own. No one is as powerful as you."Not to speak ill of Eadlyn, because I love her as a character, but I know for a fact that I can be a royal bitch sometimes (pun intended). And in particular I have a few friends that are incredibly nice, and for whatever reason my default mode is to turn into an antagonistic character in comparison to their winning personalities because I know deep down that I would never want them to change but their niceness still upsets me because I know in my heart I'm nowhere near as nice as they are. Does that make any sense? Regardless, I've been feeling that way a lot lately, which is why Eadlyn's personality & attitude at the beginning of The Heir comes to mind.
