I identify with Shana from Shakugan no Shana but I don't think she's autistic though.

Recently, I saw a copy of 'Hogan's Heroes' at a library. I didn't borrow it, but I immediately thought of you! :D

Probably already been mentioned... Didn't read the whole thread.

I identify closely with Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory.

I don't use characters as masks for passing because I don't try to pass, but I do identify with them. The Doctor, Twilight Sparkle, Peridot, Dipper, [edit: Alphys, how could I forget her?!,] Ravenpaw, Cinderpelt, Tobias (the Animorphs one, not the Divergent one), and Aximilli. Sometimes I'll mimic Twilight Sparkle or the play version of Alexander Hamilton when I need motivation, though I only do that in private.

And I have realized that all of these characters are from children's animations. This is why I have no social life.

It has, but this is a personal response - you're definitely allowed to double up! :D

The character I absolutely identify with is Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory). Its not his extreme qualities but its because in most of the episodes I would react almost the same way to the situations he encounters.


I also find myself identifying with Sheldon Cooper. Wanting to sit in my own spot, wanting things just the way I always like them...
