Literary Heroin Quiz

I saw this on one of my friend's blogs. It started on someone else's blog on the 16th, but I hadn't heard of it then. So, just for fun, I'm going to answer the questions myself today.

~ The Questions ~
1. Introduce yourself! Divulge your life's vision, likes, dislikes, aspirations, or something completely random!

Well, for privacy reasons, I can't say my name. But I will say I am the middle child in my family, my dad is a pastor, and I'm homeschooled! The LORD saw fit to bless me with two special talents--Singing, and Writing. I never neglect the minute to use those skills, and hope to be an author or performer in the future. I love reading, dancing around outside and singing when nobody is looking, playing my guitar, baking tasty things to eat, and walking around barefoot. As for dislikes...I really hate being up high. It scares me.

What, to you, forms the essence of a true heroine?

Well first things first, she must be fearless. Not afraid to speak out for others, stand up for people when they are being persecuted. The heroine knows she must do the right thing, even though it means a big risk to herself.

Share (up to) four heroines of literature that you most admire and relate to.

Carliss from "Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue"
Anne Shirley from "Anne of Green Gables"
Jo March from "Little Women"
Eowyn from "The Lord of the Rings"

Five of your favorite historical novels?
"Pride and Prejudice"
"The Falcon and the Sparrow"
"The Blue Enchantress"
"On the Banks of Plum Creek"
"Little Town on the Prairie"

Out of those five books who is your favorite main character and why?
Probably Dominique from "The Falcon and the Sparrow". She was a Christian, and had a strong belief in God. I always look for that in a main character and I found it in this one.

Out of those five books who is your favorite secondary character and why? dear. I really can't decide on this one.

If you were to plan out your dream vacation, where would you travel to - and what would you plan to do there?
Oh, it would most likely be Paris, France. I've always dreamed of sitting in one of the outdoor cafes and eating croissant rolls and fancily-shaped ice cream while eyeing a marvelous view of the Eiffle Tower.

What is your favorite time period and culture to read about?
Definitely Medieval Times and the Victorian Era.

You have been invited to perform at the local charity concert. Singing, comedy, recitation - what is your act comprised of?
That, my dear, was a too easy question. I would sing.

If you were to attend a party where each guest was to portray a heroine of literature, who would you select to represent?
Probably either Carliss from the Knights of Arrethrae series or Eowyn from Lord of the Rings.

What are your sentiments on the subject of chocolate?
Chocolate is heaven in your mouth....except mixed with pretzels. Yech!

Favorite author(s)?
J.R.R. Tolkein
C.S. Lewis
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Lucy Maud Montgomery
Louisa May Alcott
Jane Austen
Marylu Tyndall
Chuck Black

Besides essentials, what would you take on a visiting voyage to a foreign land?
My Journal
A fancy hat(like a beret!)

In which century were most of the books you read written?
Oh well um, they're kind of mixed. I'll have to check.

In your opinion, the ultimate hero in literature is…
Oohh I was really gonna say Frodo but that's only because I like him. I'm gonna go with Aragorn. :D

Describe your ideal dwelling place.
A cozy little cottage in the countryside. On the outside, there would be an stone path that leads through a garden full of roses, lillies, and marigold, with a goldfish pond in the center. On the inside, there would be a neat little library alcove where I keep all my books. The curtains would be lacey and the windows would be open all the time to sound of bluebirds chirping.

Sum up your fashion style in five words.
Skirts, culottes, flip-flops, t-shirts, capris

Have you ever wanted to change a character’s name?
Quite frankly, I've been satisfied with every name in a book.

In your opinion, the most dastardly villain of all literature is...
That title belongs to Sauron. He makes most villains look like the Queen of Hearts.

Three favorite Non-fiction books?
"Before You Meet Prince Charming: A Guide to Radiant Purity" is the only one I can think of at the moment.

Your duties met for the day, how would you choose to spend a carefree summer afternoon?
That being said, I would go swimming, and take long walks outside to gather inspiration.

Create a verbal sketch of your dream hat - in such a way as will best portray your true character.
Ok, I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

Share the most significant event(s) that have marked your life in the past year.
Becoming a teenager

Share the Bible passage(s) that have been most inspiring to you recently.
Philippians 4:13
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
