I offered up a question to ask finalists in a competition. My question was this:
If you could save the life of one fictional character, who would you save and why?
In this case, it was asking regarding a novel, but I'd be interested to hear who you'd save from a movie as well.
In my case, both apply. I would save the life of the horse Artax from The Never Ending Story. His death scarred my child mind forever. I still get teary if I think about it too closely. :'(
The worst part is that if you'd read the book, you'll remember that Artax SPOKE. It made it even worse as he was telling Atreyu to go ahead and leave him etc.
Who would you save?
