    Default Do you think you would be an interesting main character?

    Some people have interesting personalities. Some people have very interesting personalities. And while we often degrade ourselves for being boring and uninteresting, I'd like to ask you all a question of self-reflection and a healthy dose of indulgence in your character, be it good, bad, or both: Do you think that you as a person would make an interesting main character in some manner of fictional work, be it a sitcom or a romance story or a Shakespearian tragedy or anything of the sort?

    I've found that I fit the "struggling artist" archetype to a T. Coping with anxiety and stress, frequent fits of writer's block, a social environment on the brink of falling over, huge aspirations and ambition, a life solely dedicated to the arts...I think I'd make either a compelling film protagonist or a really hilarious sidekick in a sitcom, depending on how you spin it.

    I'd say my life as a whole was pretty interesting. I wouldn't say me - right now - in this situation is though. So I guess if I was the main character in like a book about my whole life, that yeah I'd be a pretty neat main character. If I was just a character in general - I'd be better at being a side-character; the quirky sarcastic ginger who hangs out with outcasts and says insightful or inappropriate things sometimes. If I was to compare myself to two characters; it would be Margo Roth Spiegelman (Paper Towns) and Phebe Buffay (Friends). (and maybe Jessie from Undergrads)

    I feel like I'd make an interesting main character, assuming that the anime (that's totally what it would be) put me in a different situation than the one I'm currently in. My life right now isn't very exciting.

    I'd rather be the main villain. Spends most of his younger years growing up in various places around the world, uses the acquired knowledge to eventually take over the world with an evil business empire. O_O Or something like that...

    Although I do often end up playing a leadership role in whatever I participate in, I feel as if I'd make a better supporting character than a main one. I enjoy helping others out, giving people a chance to let their story run its course rather than trying to make everything a part of mine. I have experienced a lot, although the majority of what I have experienced has been heavily influenced by others, mainly my family.

    I think I'd confuse people more than anything. I do all sorts of things that seem to contradict each other and I constantly go in self-defeating circles in my head, but obviously I have to end up doing something at some point. I don't think an audience would know what to think of me. Although, that's starting to sound like an unreliable narrator, the more I think about it. That might be best for me, which is a funny thought. xD

    I'd be too blazed to be the main focus of anything.

    I don't know. I think I would be maybe a boring main character unless the story revolves around what I'm thinking.
    I think the genre would be slice of life.

    Though, if I was in a shoujo manga, I would be the awkward heroine who would freak out over stuff.

    No not at all. I'd spend hours playing games in my room and sleeping. I'm not sure what person would bother with a boring book like that. xD

    Nah, I don't get up to anything, have adventures or leave the house much. I'm not very interesting and i'm pretty shy.
