Episode Seven – Our Favorite Characters

A pencil, a ball point pen, and a quill sitting in lounge chairs drinking coffee; Title: Writers Drinking Coffee

Heroes, sidekicks, villains, henchmen – our coffee committee review our favorites and describe why. Can an ensemble point of view work? Who did good ensemble/different character episodes and stories?

Mentions in Episode 7:

Mole (Wind in the Willows) & Eeyore are the perfect sidekicks. (Piglet is not. John is wrong.) Samwise Gamgee is another perfect sidekick, who was briefly the hero.

Sophocles added a third actor, hence the sidekick and reducing the chorus. The first sidekick master!

“The male version of a Mary Sue is a Marty Stu.” That’s just wrong, boys

  • Tarkin by James Luceno
  • Red – is a great comic book and movie
  • Oh blessed Shai Hulud – there actually IS a Tarkin + My Little Pony Fanfic out there already (That’s just wrong. Go wash your hands right now. )
