View Full Version : Who would you talk to ?

If you could speak to any three fictional characters (TV, Books, Cartoons, Movies, etc.) who would they be?

There is no right answer so feel free to pull in any fictional characters you like!



10-27-2004, 06:32 PM
Odysseus - The Illiad and The Odyssey, Homer
James Bolivar ("Slippery Jim") diGriz - The Stainless Steel Rat, Harry Harrison
Gandalf the Gray - The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkein

10-28-2004, 04:57 AM
Clark Kent
King Arthur
Wonder Woman - just to stare at the outfit!

10-28-2004, 07:16 AM
Argument about whether King Arthur is really fictional in 5.....4......3......2.....1....

Hands down it would be Jamie & Claire Fraser from the book series Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.
Jamie is a Scottish Highlander from the 1745 time period and Claire is from 1945 who travels back in time through standing stones in Scotland and meets Jamie.

And Bugs Bunny ;D

Now if you asked about ancesters there are a couple that stick out..... two fought in the Civil war and one came over from Scotland.

Just a trivia point -- Jamie Fraser was based on the Scottish highland character, Jamie McCrimmon, who accompanied the second Dr. Who, as played by Patrick Troughton in the British BBC sci-fi series. Jamie was played by Frazer Hines, hence the name. ;D

Conner MacLeod.....Highlander
just my $0.02 and wish you asked for more it really stirred my imagination

I would deffinately have to go with...

Flashman - If you haven't read his books, you don't know what you are missing!
Hannibal Lector - Seems like an interesting guy, a little off center, but should be a good conversation!
(damn, forget his name) Main character in the book "The thought gang" - yet again, an outstanding read!

04-05-2005, 04:41 PM
The Dark Lady of Shakespeare's sonnets
Jane Austin's Emma
Corwin of Roger Zelazny's "Amber Series"

04-05-2005, 04:57 PM
Thomas Jefferson
Jean Luc Picard
Mark Twain

04-05-2005, 05:04 PM
Mark Twain is my great, great, great, great grandfather.

Btw, neither he nor Thomas Jefferson are fictional ;)

04-05-2005, 06:06 PM
Oops, I misread as "real or fictional" big boo-boo...

Make that:
Jean Luc Picard
Tom Sawyer
and for fun,
Cosmo Kramer

Val, my grandmother's family has an extensive history in Missouri, mostly in the Sullivan area. :D

Magus from Dragon Lance (Most powerful mage in the series and most kind of all the chars)
Duncan from Highlander (*drowl*)
Mina from Branstoker's Dracula ("WHAT WERE YOU THINKING! Vlad Loved you! Imortality! If I were you I would of taken him! Insted you chose the clerk? Who's NOT romantic? Not cute? Bad choice sweety!" would be most of the conversation...)

05-02-2005, 03:30 PM
Carlos Castaneda's "Don Juan" who although he claimed as real is widely regarded fictional.

05-02-2005, 04:50 PM
Please don't yell, I just thought of anouther 2 persons I'd kill to meet;

The Highway Man (The guy from a Bardic Poem, let me know if you have no clue who I'm talking about You can cross Duncan's place for him)

The Lady of Shalotte (Same poet as the guy above)

I just had to add thease..

05-02-2005, 05:03 PM
Zoot (and/or Dingo)

Albus Dumbledoore


05-03-2005, 12:21 AM

Napoleon Bonaparte

Leonardo DaVinci

05-03-2005, 12:33 AM

Gandalf The Gray- (lord of the rings)

Calypso- Greek Goddess

05-03-2005, 12:57 AM
I know I only started with one, so here are my other two.

Bacchus - The God of wine... Talk about a good source ;D.
Beauty - from Anne Rice's "The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty" (commands are talking... right?)

09-15-2007, 06:36 AM
My fist has different opinions than my brain. Three People my fist would like to talk to...

"Fox Newscasters" who start talking loudly over their guests as soon as they hear one word they disagree with and/or never let them complete a single sentence or response.

Revived for newbee pleasure.


09-15-2007, 11:07 AM
Wrath! Good to hear from you again, buddy!!

(Of course Oskaar's probably gonna slap your wrist for reviving such an old thread... and mine, too, for continuing the posts!) :laughing7:

09-15-2007, 03:28 PM
1. Yoda (Jedi Master)

2. Rick Deckard (Bladerunner)

3. Dionysus (Greek god of wine) Oh the stories he'd be able to share...

09-15-2007, 04:28 PM
Obi Wan Kenobi (Star Wars)
Councelor Deanna Troi (Star Trek)
The Marquis De Carabas (Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman)

Each of these would seem to be able to give a unique perspective in their respective worlds.

09-15-2007, 10:08 PM
-Tom Bombadil (Lord of The Rings)
-King Leonitus (do I really have to say where hes from?) - ok so he really lived, but he was in a movie which was almost fictional(i know thats up for debate, but if you disagree let it go this time)

09-16-2007, 05:28 AM
For me, five musicians and two fictional characters. Is that cheating? It's just that the musicians kinda blur into one ideal so can I can count them as single character?

Musicians: Jim White, Jay Farrar, Ryan Adams, Neil Finn, Travis Ward
Fictional Characters: Alvin Maker (by Orson Scott Card), Valentine Michael Smith (Robert Heinlien)

09-17-2007, 03:40 AM
Just had to despute the use of gods in there as technically there not fictional characters. But if that line of thinking is allowed then.

1. God (christian, but not jesus)

2. Gia

3. Black Celestial dragon ( chines myth)

If not

1. The boogey man.

2. Ryoko (Tenchi muyo series, watch it with the subtitels in japanes changes the whole feel of the show.)

3. The Dragon from eragon

11-13-2007, 04:15 PM
I have to jump in and keep the thread going. It is a fascinating question. :-)

Here is my 3:

Sherlock Holmes
God (I am agnostic)

Yo momma
11-14-2007, 07:12 AM

3. Flint Fireforge (Dragonlance)

11-14-2007, 07:39 PM

11-15-2007, 05:53 PM
Wait, I think I need to change my answer. How could I possibly have forgotten Lazarus Long? Or Mike, the computer from The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress? Or HAL, for that matter? Crap, Dr. Watson! Or Dr. Who!! Davros!!!

AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!! Too many to choose from!
