    Maximum Ride.

    I relate to Max from Maximum Ride. I'm fierce, I'm a fighter, I'll die to protect those I love, and I'm as stubborn as a mule. I also have a loving personality, like she does sometimes. I'm not crisscrossed between boys, again, like she was. But I am in love. I'm kinda a leader...

    I can, um, relate to Elsa from Frozen a lot.

    Elsa has to hold in her emotions in fear of her ice power showing; I have to hold in my emotions or the WORLD would be DESTROYED by my RAGE. I guess I can relate to Hugh from Pokémon, too, huh? XD

    Percy Jackson, Sam Winchester,

    Katniss Everdeen, Frank Zhang, Harry Potter, Master Chief, Maximum Ride-all of them are outcasts, all of them were pushed to find who they are; to find their true potential. All of them are true to themselves, and all of them would do anything they could to protect those who...

    Fictional Connections

    It might seem odd, but sometimes when a show/book/drawing/etc. has a deep impact on me I think: “what gives you the right to make me feel this way?” I don't have that many people in my life that I'm close to, and I certainly don't have anyone in my life that I could tell any...

    I know I've posted something similar to this

    before but I can't shake the feeling anymore. I can relate to Gaara from the Naruto anime series. And I guess I looked way too deep into the connection. I think it's because of a YouTube series I was working on that combined fictional characters with people I know. For example...

    I'm pretty much Marry + Kido + Ayano + Takane +

    Seto + Konoha (they are all from Mekakucity Actors by the way) I'm quiet, shy, kind, easily scared, weird, sensitive, easily embarrassed, and clumsy like Marry. We both act in pretty much the same way... lots of involuntary shrieking, lots of weird writing, lots of apologizing...

    Raven from Teen Titans.

    I guess in her insecurity and lonerness and being with people who do not care for the sake of being lonely. Raven: ''I'm not creepy... I'm just different.'' Raven: ''He lied to me… he lied. And I gave him what he wanted…'' Raven: ''I know it was all a lie, but...

    FFXII Baby

    I mostly relate to Vincent Valentine from FF7. I'm generally a loner and i prefer to be that way. The only person I'm willing to be with at all times is the love of my life. Otherwise i'm somewhat silent.

    Holden Caulfield and Tsukuru Tazaki.

    There is honestly no literature character more close to me then Holden and Tsukuru. They made me feel better knowing that it's okay to feel alone, confused and lost. They made me accept the fact you're never going to know what you're future is like and it's scary but that's a...

    Who I Can Relate To...

    Gohan from Dragon Ball Z. The dude has major anger issues and so do I. XD As a kid, it seemed that he never really liked to fight. Unless provoked. But even then, idk if he was enjoying it. xD If anybody so messing with his family or friends, he bites back. The same goes for me.

    I think that's what they are made for/from.

    The ideas for their being and personality comes from real people and that's why they are so relatable. I can relate most to Hannah Baker from 13 Reasons Why. She is the main character who recorded tapes of the reasons she committed suicide. She has a twisted sense of humor and...

    My Characters

    I love and accept all of the fictional characters I've made up. I observe peoples' flaws and good qualities, some quirks, too, and mold those traits into my character's personalities. Some aspects of my characters, shall I say, are 'reflections' of parts of my past. I can relate...

    I Don't Know Why

    I think it's because I can't relate to real life people. All of them seem so fake. Especially the people that are 'Celebrities'. It's like they're a completely different kind of race. People in general annoy me. Their stupidity annoys me, their ignorance annoys me and their...

    Every time I come back to watch Avatar: Korra,

    I feel surprisingly connected to Korra's struggle. Korra was disabled and didn't know what to say to her friends. Seeing somebody (albeit somebody fictional) going through roughness and living through it, that's what I love.
