I never finish old memes before I start new ones.  Expect three entries before I get bored and wander someplace else.  Grabbed this meme from [livejournal.com profile] sonneta.

01. A fictional character you identify with and why.

I was in high school the first time I read the Mars Trilogy, and the series impacted me in a lot of different ways - it made me think about history as something living, as culture and government and society as something we create while we live in it, about conservation and environmentalism and how those aren't always the same thing.  But one thing that immediately struck me the most, and has stayed with me the most over the years, is my huge and undying love for Sax Russell.  He's my favorite fictional character from any medium - books, TV, film - for a variety of reasons.  One big thing that I identify with him is the way he is a very logical, pragmatic person who is also very emotional, even if no one else realizes it.  I'd spent quite a few years by that point trying to make myself more popular, believing that I had to be Miss Bubbles and Butterflies and tamp down those parts of myself that were too cold or rational or unfeeling if people were going to like me.  I can't honestly say that I had some kind of eureka! moment after reading the books that made me decide to be myself, but this was definitely one of the steps along the way.
