Ironic Contradictions

I'm a long time reader - since way back when I was seven. That makes it over three quarters of my life that I will be a reader for. But it is worth it. When I'm not reading or wasting my time online on here or Goodreads I'll be off playing video games, studying teaching and messing around with friends and pop culture. Or reading some more.

25. A Character You Can Relate to the Most

I think of all literature characters I can relate both to Sam Gamgee and oddly enough Mr Darcy in different ways. For Sam, the real hero of The Lord of the Rings it's the loyal friendship and determination to see the adventure to the end. Though he is a more reluctant hero in the end he has the courage to do what others could not and isn't afraid to back down from the truth or what is right. As for good old Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice it's not the unrequited love that I relate to so much. But what I do relate to is the idea of being misjudged because of very loyal friendships. As a person I am very loyal to my friends and sometimes this leads to that strength being a weakness of mistrust from others or of others, or of being perceived as naive. These are strengths and weaknesses in Mr Darcy's personality, though he is a touch more awkward socially than I am.
