If you could BE anyone----past or present, dead or alive----who would you like to be? Why?

Also, you can choose a fictional person from a book, play, movie, whatever.....

Do not even know who i am, or what makes me me, or another person them, and if we are even separate or the same person.
The edges are blurred.
Could not conceive of being a single person.
I contain multitudes.
Everything borrowed and unoriginal.
Perhaps I am crazy.

I don't want to be any specific person, but there are some people who have traits I'd like to emulate.

I wouldn't want to be someone dead, that wouldn't be much fun. If I can choose literary characters then maybe Dorian Gray.

I would like to be Queen Elizabeth. How lovely it would be to be privileged throughout your life.

I think being anyone who's not a lot like me would be extremely uncomfortable... I would trade lives with a number of fictional characters, though. But that's because I'm a huge nerd. And I do have a specific character in mind, whom I'm not going to name, because the image of the author facepalming at it is enough to stop me. Hahaha

If my girlfriend would let me, I'd chose whoever the iCarly star, Miranda Cosgrove would date because I have a mega huge crush on her :heart: :hic: & I'd be that person as long as it would take me to convince her to give the real me a chance.

Balthazar Bratt, and for however long I'd be able to cope with being a washed up 80s child star!

A new and improved version of myself, a person who did all the normal things one might expect of a woman almost 53 years of age, a woman some nice man might actually want to get to know and who has the social skills to recognize it.

There is no one else I would like to be. I'm content with being me.

There are some fictional worlds I'd like to enter for a time, but there are no one in particular I'd like to be there, I just wanna experience that world, and be happy to be there as myself. I'd love to live in the worlds of Pokemon and Rune Factory, and maybe Dragon Quest.

I can't say for how long, it would depend on how I liked it there and whether my loved ones would come along.

I would love to become someone who volunteers or work at Turtle Hospital, and become them when they enter the facility and be the one to handle the turtles, but I have no wish to stay them in any non-turtle related time.The same for someone working at a turtle/tortoise sanctuary.

I would also like to temporarily become one of the people working at the wolf center I'm following so I'd be the one to feed and pet the wolves and otherwise be around them and hear them howl IRL and all the other sounds wolves make when they interact. As in the above I would only want to get the wolf experience.

Better yet would be to be able to be there as me, but that's not likely to happen, so I wouldn't mind taking their place for some minutes or hours a day.
