ok, a thought came to mind ~ only to be a topic, here & now.. ;} the subject of heroes & villians, those archetypes of legendary nature that serve as inspiration for us to carry on with daily life...they can be found in literature, film, music, animations, history, comics & even video games ~ we cross paths with them, & while most are experienced & brushed aside, there are others that send shimmers into our minds & hearts, for their ways of being, their modes of thinking ~ their very essence creates a spark...& after seeing them in action, we think & reflect on just how amazing they are ~ perhaps to a point of collecting all insight as to who they are all about, or perhaps to the point of worshipping (& yes, even such fans exist..). so this topic of the moment is this ~ who(m) are you inspired by & why? remember that the skies the limit here & if there's more than one, curious minds wish to know.. mmm, for myself ~ i'm drawn to the following archetypes..
    Aeon Flux ~ to this day, Aeon is an inspiration to me ~ perhaps because she represents a part of me that would like to be in a similar profession that she's in, especially in the world that she's a part of; so in respect, i'm a big fan of her style & personality, not to mention the series ~ she takes nothing from no one, in a professional manner, of course..

    Ayame (Tenchu) ~ a recent addition, but one worthy of note ~ anyone who is familiar with Tenchu (Fatal Shadows) will know what i speak of...along the same lines as Aeon i suppose, but far more stealthy...it is the spirit of the warrior that attracts me to this one, a spirit that is so hidden in this day & age......now whether or not that's a good thing remains to be determined..

    Etna (Disgaea) ~ she's bubbly in the twisted sense, just don't get on her bad side! but i really like her style of dress; i'll wager none here knew that about me, yes? ;p

    I-no (Guilty Gear) ~ i'm a fan for the series, & I-no is my favorite character to use when playing; her style is unique, & i really like how she incorporates the power of sound into her combos; not to mention the hat that has a persona all on its own.. & as you can guess, she is my avatar to the left <<<

one last note..
villians are also valid in this thread ~ is that possible? ;}

I'm just going to focus on heroes here.

No heroes here. I'm never drawn to or identify with any heroes or villians in any form of fictional media or publication for that matter.

The heart and soul of a hero really isn't defined well, to me at least, in someone with super powers or badass abilities. I'm not saying it gets in the way or takes away from a hero or villian, but that's not what makes a hero.

It's easy for Superman to bust his invunerable balls to save peoples lives, because what does he really have to fear? What does he have to sacrifice? It's not the same thing as a police-man having to stare down the barrel of a robbers gun, or those firemen that ran in the World Trade Center during 9/11?

Altruism, anyone?

When you've got to conqueror the greatest fears of them all for a just cause, that's what makes a hero.

Those who are truely vunerable, yet put themselves at risk for a great cause are the greatest of heroes. When you think about, we don't need to turn to comic books or other fictional media for heroes.

Not to sound cliche, but there is a hero within us all. That is the hero I'm drawn to; the one within us all.
