Memey thing
I was jolly pleased with this one for a change!

"Which Diana Wynne Jones character are you?"-quiz

I came out as Gair. Which is good given that Power of Three is my favourite DWJ book. Plus, I guess I have often identified with Gair.

Just been rereading PoT again. I still think it's a great story. And every time I can't get over quite how much of the story has been cut from the German translation which I read long before I even spoke English.

Can't wait to get my thoughts straight to start writing that PoT Fanfic I mentioned to Polly and Pellegrina.

Claudia in Year of the Griffin. Bit of a bummer since I can't even remember who she is!

I was Awful from Archer's Goon. This disturbed me so much I went back and changed most of my answers and I was STILL Awful.

Finally, I managed to be someone else - and I ended up an Izzy, which is even worse!


I'm still not 100% certain that pellegrina is who I think she is, but if she *is*, I am disturbed that I actually imagined Claudia from Year of the Griffin as pretty much her. Have only just realised that my mental image of Claudia was based on a real-life person.

Now, deeply worried by quiz which I suspect of having been compiled by a Magid who is using my subconscious as some sort of clip-art library....

...I too came out as Awful >_< But then I changed stuff and ended up as Tanaqui, which is much better, except that it reminds me of that girl who changed her name to Tanaqui Weaver, which is, you know, a bit sad.

Re: I feel your pain...

Tanaqui is okay, but I agree about that girl. I bumped into her the last time I was in Alitophilus' shop. ;-)

Ach... not good. I certainly don't see you as an Izzy. Or as awful.

Who'd you have picked?

Well... I really wanted to be Chrestomanci. But maybe if you *want* to be Chrestomanci you end up as Awful - that would be appropriate.

However, I think the character I identify most with is probably Cat from Charmed Life. He's so terminally confused...

Cat is great. He was my first favourite character in a DWJ book. Charmed Life was the first book I read by DWJ and I have been trying to persuade Potter afficionadoes to give that one a try.

As for Chrestomanci... well, I can see you being a sort of Chrestomanci. Oddly enough. ;-)

Year of the Griffin didn't leave a lasting impression on me... So I can't help you out with that one.

Talking of not remembering: the other day I read this thing on the DWJ community, where someone had commented in response to a question of favourite DWJ character, that Blade and Gair were basically the same person, but that they liked Blade, but found Gair irritating. 'Hm,' thinks I, 'I don't recall a Blade at all. Will look him up when I get back home.' I looked and eventually traced blade back to The Dark Lord of Derkholm. I still have no memory of the character. So I guess I can't have perceived him and Gair as basically the same person as each other. Or I'd probably have remembered Blade a bit better.

*goes back to getting some work done*
