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

I changed accounts.
Hm.

I think I'll go with Cipher, from Ace Combat Zero.

I don't think I'd want to be anybody from Watchmen. Interesting characters, with thought-provoking moral systems, but there's a stark difference between saying "I liked this character and his/her beliefs (even if I may not agree)" and "I'd like to be this character."

I mean, hey, Rorschach is one of my favorite characters of all time, even if I don't particularly agree with a lot of his ideas and think he was very misguided in the way he went about certain things. I would never, ever want to be Rorschach, however.
I am now known as Flyboy.

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

Surely an important aspect of Dr. Manhattan's character arc is that he has long since stopped caring about the government at all? If you were Dr. Manhattan you'd have no interest in dismantling any government because human politics would be completely beneath you.

In any case, I'd have thought you'd choose to be Kid Miracleman or something.

I'd send a d-mail back in time to try and prevent Greenspan from putting the brakes on the economy at the end of the 90's.

Why you look at me like that?

As my avatar suggests I'd want to be Captain James Tiberius Kirk. I trust there's no explanation needed.

I'd also want to be Tony Stark for week. For sure. Maybe not during the whole beat up and left in a cave with a box of scraps period, but other than that. The Mark II test flight scene nailed it, but actually the minute the stripper poles descended from the roof of his private jet and the flight attendants started performing, I realized I wished I was him.

Or maybe, I just wish I was Robert Downey, Jr.. I dunno.

Also wouldn't mind mind being either David Palmer or for that matter Sergeant Major Jonas Blane.

It was an honor

It would be nice to be Dorian Gray, just for a day. I'd kinda like to understand what it is like to be hedonistic and narcissistic, but I get the feeling I'd hate myself afterwords. So maybe it would be better to be Dorian Gray, every day.
All I do, is sit down at the computer, and start hittin' the keys. Getting them in the right order, that's the trick.

Odysseus, just because his life seems so damn fun, not to mention he's the toast of his entire world.

Edit: Oh, or alternately Ulysses, George Clooney's character from O Brother, Where Art Thou?, because he's basically the same, only good-looking and with a voice to boot.

The Fonz - I could really do with getting laid and going for a motorbike ride or two. My aim would be to see how far through his "little black book" (i.e. several large steel filing cabinets) I could get through in a week...

Lelouch Vi Britannia, Why? He's a brilliant anti-hero, emo as anything, a total pretty boy and he has a magic eye that commands any human. Why not?

I have balls.
Captain Kirk is always a sure bet. What's not to like about space and women? The uniform isn't much to my tastes, but I can live with it.

[up] I mean think about. To be the handsome swaggering commander of the most tricked-out spaceship built by man, traveling the cosmos meeting hot chicks and zapping bad guys, and hanging out with all your best buddies.

All that and...well, I'd command any ship with Lt. Uhura sitting on my bridge.

I have to admit though, all the other Trek captains have something about them that would make me want to be them for a week.

Except Janeway, but only because I don't want to be girl. However, I would hang out with her for a week.
It was an honor

I quite like being myself, but if I had to be a fictional character...

Legs of Justice
Chun-Li from Street Fighter. I'd love to experience her training (and figure out how I could get legs like hers) and she seems to be a pretty cool character with a fun life (okay, maybe other than the fight supervillains thing...but I'd probably enjoy that too).
I totally hate my avatar. Just saying.
Q, then I could use my Q powers to make myself Q forever while still being me, but with all the powers of a Q.

MONKEY MAGIC
The fictional character of Yahweh from Lucifer. Given a week, I would:

1st Day: Separate light from darkness.
2nd Day: Separate the sky from the waters.
3rd Day: Create the continents.
4th Day: Create the celestial bodies.
5th Day: Create aquatic animals, flying animals, aquatic bacteria airborne bacteria.
6th Day: Create land based bacteria, fungi, plants and land based animals.
7th Day: Rest.

Wasn't Odysseus' life totally crappy? With his Odyssey and everything? Poseidon really hated his guts. tongue

How about Superman? I'd be able to do anything. cool

[up] Well, on the one hand, certainly a lot of people were really interested in mounting his head on a pike a lot of times, but I mean, he always got out of it, and I bet he got all kinds of adulation afterwards. He was already considered a God among Men by the time the Iliad rolled around, even more so when the Odyssey began.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
