#3. Embarrassing as it is to admit, I really identify hard with Peggy Carter. It's actually a weird feeling for me, because I don't tend to identify with characters that much; I might see an element of myself here and there in them (I've enjoyed writing both Neal Caffrey and Tessa from Highlander because they're artists and I can use my own art background for that, for example) but I'm not sure if I've ever gotten that zing of character identification quite as hard in my life as I've gotten with Peggy. Even so, I try to maintain separation as much as possible when I'm writing her -- I definitely don't want to write her as a self-insert, because she is very definitely not me in many areas of her background and personality. But yeah ... if there ever was a character I identified with hard, Peggy is that character.

#25. I had a really hardcore case of this for Jennifer Keller in SGA, because the fandom hated her so much. I do have other characters I'm that way about, but I'm not sure if I've felt as virulently defensive of a character as I did with her.
