  • Pennywise the Clown
  • So many of his books do I love but I've never had a favorite character. His books are strange for me. They're not about the characters but about the narration, the events, what is unfolding. He lets us look into people, places, things, the very ephemera of a living moment and he makes us omniscient and omnisentient in that world. He's a ridiculously incredible author. I think if I had to pick a favorite, it would be him, the narrator who shows us the little parts of everyone and everything, with deep insight, shining light on the darkness, and poking fun at the things that lay there.
  • I think I'd have to go with Judd Crandall from Pet Semetary. He was a good man; kind, wise, funny. He's the kinda guy who isn't afraid to take a midnight stroll through a haunted forest, or walk across a busy, no-good highway to talk to his good pal, Louis Creed. Judd was the grandfather that I never got to know; the grandfather I've always wanted. /corny
  • Christine because it was the first one I ever read. It kept me company through a stint in detention, too.
  • Roland Deschain of Gilead  . . . . The Gunslinger

  • Barton George Dawes (Roadwork).
  • Jake, Dark Tower series. ...and Christine.
  • Randal Flagg
  • Clearly a relevant question to me. But also...IDK D: There is Eddie. And Bert. And Roland. And Jake. (Dark Tower) And Jack Shepard. (the Talisman/Black House) And Beaver. OMFG I love Beaver. (Dreamcatcher) And I really love Barbie (Under the Dome) but also fuck that book. Also, does Haven count? Because I love Audrey, Nathan and Duke.
