Very amusing parody of HP 7 here. Obviously, there be spoilers.
em_kellesvig had a meme on five character deaths that affected you. My answers were:
~ Helen Burns, Jane Eyre's best friend. At age seven, that had a fairly profound influence on me.
~ Boromir in Lord of the Rings.
~ Lucy Muir in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.
~ Aragorn, and then Arwen in the appendices of LotR
~ And I picked one real person, because my initial exposure to her was through novels, and because I never stick the rules, Lady Jane Grey.
Now Silas and Caspian are chasing Duncan around.
Oh, and I was slashing my neighbours earlier tonight!
Later: I always sing the Slinky jingle during the double quickening. And then I want to hug Methos.
