  • Santiago – the Alchemist;
  • Marilla Cuthbert – Anne of Green Gables;
  • Dexter Morgan – Darkly Dreaming Dexter;
  • Vivianne Rocher – Chocolat

Huck Finn & Tom Sawyer

Nathaniel Bonner from Sara Donati’s ” Wilderness” series – Why would I share him with anyone else?

  • Dumbledore
  • Gandalf,
  • Jo (from Little Women)

  • Roarke – from J.D. Robb’s In Death series
