If you could be a fictional character for a week...?:

Element of love
Who would you want to be and why?

I made a similar thread in the past but the difference this time is that it's temporal(to avoid the fear of stop being yourself, "dying"", losing your loved ones etc) and aimed towards fictional characters :) and it's a bit of a psychological experiment for my analysis on analysis/escapism (I want to update it with new info) ... not to mention fun!

Possibly a reality warper or some sort.

Are we limited to being a fictional character in the fictional world that character came from or being that fictional character in the real world? Can we crossover into other worlds?

Also, I'm wondering: why is this in the OTC?

Doctor Manhattan from Watchmen fame.

With his near-omnipotence, I'd be able to thoroughly wipe out and destroy government and authority, via teleporting next to them and making their blood literally boil inside their veins. Better yet, they would not have any way at all to stop me.

[up] But Doctor Manhattan's life was a very lonely and troubled one. His character arc was entirely about how his status as a god made him unable to fully relate with normal human beings* .

As for the question at hand I would be Anne Beeche.

Probably some Reality Warper or Physical God. If I'm allowed to be anyone, might as well choose the best option.

Maybe Haruhi, because then I'd be a hot gurl to boot.

[up][up] It doesn't matter: I would be Doctor Manhattan for a week... More than enough for a near-omnipotent character to thoroughly destroy government.

I'd be back to human status in a few days, more than enough to have solved all my problems. wink

I really hope you mean that in a "I'd feel good about my body" sense, rather than an "I'd like to shag myself in that scenario." Because, as OK and morally acceptable it is to be attracted to a minor, it is simply wrong to be attracted to oneself in such a way. That's just narcissistic.

I would be Doctor Manhattan for a week... More than enough for a near-omnipotent character to thoroughly destroy government.

I don't think you get the point of becoming a character. You are only adopting the superficial abilities rather than the actual character of the character. Would Doctor Manhattan destroy government because he felt that Anarchy was the best way for the world to work? Of course he wouldn't, he has his own beliefs and morals and views of the world which would not make him think these things. Essentially, (from what I gather) the point of adopting the role of a character for a week is so that you can experience things you never have before and understand the ways others (In this case fictional others) perceive and understand things.

All I do, is sit down at the computer, and start hittin' the keys. Getting them in the right order, that's the trick.

Fine, I'll invent the most powerful and godly mary sue wish-fulfillment Anne Beeche ever, and be that Anne Beeche, if only to keep all you troper gods in check and to have fun building mead halls and shit. Making a mary sue should be easy.

But no, I don't have a real answer to this question. It's a pretty hard one.

EDIT: Real answer to the question: I'll be Ookami's Amaterasu for a week. Creating stuff by painting with a brush looks like fun, and it would be interesting to experience being a godly wolf and her version of Japan.

Is that cake frosting?
Hm. Do I get to remember what I learned during the week at the end of it?

If so, Detritus. Cue me going in the coldest place I can find and stay there for the whole week, proving all kinds of groundbreaking mathematical theorems. Fields Medal, here I come! tongue

That's exactly what I thought when I saw the thread title. In that order.

[up]Interesting choice. Why?

 20 Explodia, Tue, 6th Dec '11 3:19:56 PM from The Rage Dimension
If someone became Doctor Manhattan for a week I doubt they'd bother with any of those things. When you adopt his perception of time, the universe and mankind's place in it, I doubt you would maintain the same perspective on such matters.

Adveho in mihi Lucifer
[up][up] Because I'd like to see through the perspective of that lifeform.

Tedd. I'd have a hot, shape-shifting girlfriend with no nudity taboo, the ability to swap genders with the touch of a button, and I'm smarter than 99% of the people around me.

And I wouldn't mind knowing what it's like to die and come back to life, which is a time honored Optimus tradition.
