And We're Back!

Well, that wasn't too long, now was it? I bought a new computer (the keyboard flips and everything!) "for college" , but it's also to hang out with my friends and followers. It feels good to be back, and with somewhat decent amounts of time to write posts and browse Pinterest. :) Plus a bunch of blogging friends have left us for the month or longer (seriously, I think there were at least three "goodbye" posts last week!) so I'm here to fill in the gap in your reading list. ;)

Getting down to business, A Girl With Ideas has tagged me with a Four Fictional Characters Tag, which I shall use as an excuse to gush over some wonderful literary icons.

The Rules:
1. Link back to the person who tagged you
2. List four fictional characters (use pictures if you want! They can be from movies or books) and, if you like, describe what they're like and why you believe they relate to you
3. Tag a few other blog people! Three, or four, or even twenty. :) Share the fun!
Be sure to let them know you've tagged them!

1. Horatio Hornblower

Guys I think you know why I like him...but besides outward appearance he's incredibly noble and brave. He fights for his own honor as well as the honor of his friends and country. 

2. Jo March


Jo's got spunk. She's got character. She's got problems but she solves them with her unique wit and personality. Her energy is something special and her goals are like my goals.

3. Felicity Merriman

Speaking of spunk, Felicity Merriman has got her fair share of it! Felicity is a character who has stuck with me since I was about seven years old. I've read her books countless times, and though the doll and movie are all great, it's the stories and the way I imagine her that's the best part.

4. Henry Tilney...no wait....

Northanger Abbey- I really like Catherine Morland's powder-blue, navy-inspired overcoat.

I simply cannot decide between this pair. I <3 Mr. Tilney because he is so funny and kind and gentlemanly. And I love Catherine because she is sweet and I see a lot of myself in her. I guess I'll count them as a package deal. ;)
Now what about the Bennet sisters, you might ask? Surely I cannot snub Elizabeth or Jane or (gasp) Mr. Darcy from a spot in the top four? Well I'll tell you why they're not on here...I dunno! Perhaps I'm just not in the mood, or it's a Northanger Abbey phase (though it's been going steady for over a year now...). Pride and Prejudice will always hold a part of my heart, but right now I'm enjoying some less "classic" of the classics. I'll come to my senses someday, I'm sure. ;)

I tag anyone who would like to share their favorite fictional characters! :P You can use the comments section too! 
<3, Abby


  1. Yay! You got a new computer!!! Also, I think I said this before but, I love your new blog look!!!

    I knew the last one. :) I wasn't expecting Henry but I knew you were going to say something about Catherine. :) Fun answers!

  2. Okay, I really want to watch Horatio Hornblower! We actually have the entire boxed set of the show at my house, so maybe sometime this summer I can get around to watching it... :)

    That is such a cute illustration of Felicity! The American Girl stories still hold a special place in my heart. I've tried getting my younger sisters interested in reading them but no such luck yet--someday, though! ;)

    I totally agree with your last answer; I don't think I could choose between Mr. Tilney and Catherine, either!
