If you could be a character from a book, movie, or play, who would you choose to be and why?
I would be Sophie Hatter from Howl's Moving Castle (either the book by Diana Wynne Jones or the film adaptation by Hayao Miyazaki). Her world, imbued as it is by casual and wondrous magic, is one I would love to inhabit. Howl is lovable, despite his faults, and I simply adore Calcifer. Sophie’s character—her reservedness, her compassion, her practical and dutiful nature—resonates with me. While I may never experience an adventure as grand as Sophie’s, I hope to find my voice and a sense of inner strength like she does.
