In response to “It Builds Character.”
Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?
If I were to have a heart-to-heart with a favorite character, it would definitely be Jack O’Neill from Stargate SG-1. I actually have several characters I’d love to have a heart-to-heart with, but I’m writing this on the fly, so naturally, he was the first one to come to mind.
I would want to talk about his military career (well, as much as he could tell me), and then I’d want to talk about the finer points of his personality, particularly his penchant for crankiness, but also the more redeeming aspects of his personality – his willingness to sacrifice himself to save his team and his “leave no man behind” attitude.
Of course, I’d also love to know what drives him crazy most about each of the members of his team.
