And now on to today’s question…
What Character would you want to be for a day?
I think I would like to be Elizabeth Bennet. I like Elizabeth Bennet, she’s a feisty and intelligent woman with a free spirit and independent will. Plus, there’s the whole getting to be with Mr. Darcy for a day.
If that option is out, second choice, Jane Eyre. same reasons really. Rochester substituting for Darcy of course.

Hmm … I don’t know about a specific character but I think I would want to be a moderately well-off Hearth Witch of moderate power in Anne Bishop’s Black Jewel’s universe.
The Black Jewels books are entertaining and show a matriarchal system that has been polluted and tainted by desperate, greedy, power-hungry individuals. There are several cultures of people, some of whom live a “normal” life-span, and others that live thousands of years creating an interesting personal and political dynamic. The strength of a person’s magic depends on how deep their well of power is. Essentially there are marker lines as you go deeper, each one color coded. White is the closest to the top and therefore the least powerful and Black is at the bottom, the most powerful.
The books regale grand adventures and epic clashes between the most powerful of the world’s elite, but I was always more fascinated by the characters that landed about halfway along the power structure, people who had enough power to make life interesting but not enough to be swept full-bore into the politics of the world. I’d like to be able to carry things without pockets and create witch lights and light candles from across the room and such things.
I want to be the Twenty-Sided Sorceress! It’s a great Urban Fantasy series by Annie Bellet about a young woman who owns a gaming store. You know, card games, board games, video games and comics. Some geek knowledge doesn’t hurt to keep up with the many pop culture jokes. Now, she also happens to be an insanely powerful Sorceress who’d prefer to live her life away from daily mortal peril. Of course, in the series, it soon catches up to her. But for a day, I’d hopefully be relatively safe. It must be amazing to wield that kind of magical power and I want to try it just that once.
