Weekend Assignment #313: Through some miracle of colliding realities, you have the opportunity to meet a fictional character, face to face. Which character would you most like to meet, and why?
Extra Credit: What question would you most like to ask that character? Extra extra credit for posting the character’s likely reply!
How can I possibly narrow it down? While there are any number of characters I might like to meet – as well as their creators, many of whom are characters themselves – I’m not sure there is one I would most like to meet.
Looking for inspiration, or at least a nudge in one direction or another, I threw the question out to Twitter and Google Buzz. (I should have asked on Facebook, too, but I tend to forget I have an account there.) I’ve included screenshots of the responses. Atticus Finch and Dumbledore each got two votes, but there was no consensus otherwise.

It’d be so much fun.2:05 pmFlorinda – That was who Karen picked too – this is the Weekend Assignment topic she gave us this week, and she’s WAY into Doctor Who!
How many people can travel in a Tardis, anyway?

If you’ve got your an answer to this question, I’d love to know! There’s also still time for you to do your own Weekend Assignment post to answer it, if you like. Here are the guidelines:
1. Write your thoughts on the subject in you own blog, or in the comments to the main Weekend Assignment post. If you write a blog entry, please remember to go back to the main post afterward and leave a link to your entry, so everyone can find it.
2. Your entry should include a link back to the main Weekend Assignment post, so your readers know where they can go to play along themselves.
3. The deadline is Wednesday, April 7th at 6 PM PDT (9 PM Eastern). That night Carly and Karen will compile a list of participants so we can all read about the characters everyone wanted to meet.
