Fiction runs up against reality ...

... Fictional characters you would like to meet.

I'll have to think about this. I think I'd like to meet Jane Eyre. I don't scare easily, but certainly Dracula would bear watching carefully.
What is interesting about this is that the characters one most likes are those one identifies with and so in once you don't have to meet them and in another a meeting would necessarily disappoint. One wants to meet someone like Jane Eyre because, if you're a male reader, you're likely to have a crush on her.
