This week's question is: Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?
MY ANSWER: This one was so difficult because even though it seems like it would be grand to be one of the characters in the book, I remembered all the angst that they had to go through. In the end, I actually chose a minor character that served as a point of inspiration and love.

My reasons: Besides the fact that she is a gorgeous magical elf and she has the love of Aragorn, she is part of an epic story and brings the Fellowship much help in their quest from her faraway minor role. It was easy to go with what she looks like because I have movie references for this one, and I adore Liv Tyler. I'm not sure what we have in common other than knowing that love really is the most important thing.
Quotes from the movie:
"What's this? A Ranger caught off his guard?"
"If you want him, come and claim him!"
I'm not familiar with the character you have chosen but she sounds interesting.ReplyDelete

OH I would love to be Arwen, she is such a strong character.ReplyDelete
Great choice! I need to rewatch the LOTR series since The Hobbit is coming out soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm a new follower through GFC.ReplyDelete
Nice! Never did read or see these books and movies! But knew that she played a pretty powerful character!ReplyDelete
Here's my Follow Friday
Have a GREAT weekend!
Old Follower :)
I haven't read all the LOTR books, the Hobbit kind of discouraged me a little...ReplyDelete
I'm an old Linky follower.
Here's my FF post
Arwen= fantastic choice! (She's one of mine, too, as you noted.) Love the quotes from Fellowship. I love her entrance in the movie and the magic of her character-- she couldn't more obviously be an elf if she had the word written across her forehead, haha. Following you back via GFC!ReplyDelete
Arwen (and Liv!) is a great choice! Thanks for hopping by my blog. I'm following back. =) Happy FridayReplyDelete
Ah...Arwen. She was so mysterious and cool and well elf-like. In a fantasy world I would probably have gone with someone from the Dragonlance series, I always like Kit - even though she was bad. Happy Friday! And thanks for Hopping! XOXO - ParajunkeeReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, Following you in return. I love, love, love Liv Tyler & Arwen!ReplyDelete

Thanks for the follow, favor returned!ReplyDelete
Arwen is a great choice, and Liv is lovely! Eowyn would be great too - one of my favorite scenes in the third movie is when she tells the Witch King that she's no man and slays him!
If I had my druthers, I would have taken Boromir, too bad he died in the first movie lol
Have a great weekend!
Amazing choice! I love Lord of the Rings so Arwen is a great choice. I love that she chooses Aragorn over an immortal life filled with emptiness without love. Liv Tyler will always be Arwen, she played her perfectly!ReplyDelete

I always favored Laurana from Dragonlance, but I do like the goodie-goodies. She had one of the most awesome character developments I have ever seen. :) I enjoyed Kit as well though.ReplyDelete
Yes she is a great strong woman as well. She really wanted to fight and prove her worth and that was such a moment for her. Thank you so much for following :)ReplyDelete
