On the other hand, sometimes it's harder to be inspired by someone who isn't real. For me, it's usually the very flawed who inspire me the most. I'll never be Ma from Little House on the Prairie, and I'm not all that interested in trying, but I do think she's a great mom. (Also, I understand that Ma was real, but I also think that since Laura is looking back as an adult on her childhood, some of the characterization of her perfect parents is probably the misty, rosy glasses of nostalgia.)
So, here they are: flawed just enough:

|And she loved the snow too.|
|I wish I could wear more hats.|
|I actually love both Sarahs.|
It was very hard to choose.
|I'm gonna make one of those|
sweaters. I promise.
|Oh, Ellen, how the boys have |
Okay, your turn. Who's your fictional hero? Who do you think you would be most like if you were plunged into another world? Who do you want to be like, even stuck in this one?
