Who is your favorite mythical creature/character, and why?
When I was younger, I was just floored by Disney's Ariel. Whenever I was playing around in a pool I would try to swim with my legs together and pretend I was a mermaid! However, now that I am no longer a naive child with unadulterated thoughts, I reckon giving up your legs for a stinky fish tail is a sour deal, especially if you lose all your naughty bits with it! And living in the ocean isn't all it's cracked up to be. You are constantly swimming in yours (and everyone else's for that matter!) excrement. The term "don't shit where you eat" is only applicable on dry land. I also imagine it to be very cold and dark under there.
I also used to be a fan of the Chimera, which is some weird creature with bits of lion, snake and goat if I remember correctly, but I don't quite recall the exact combination. I think the main thing was that the name sounded cool.
Nowadays, I fancy things that have the gift of flight. My favorite dreams are the ones where I am flying. I don't have anyone in particular in mind, but I guess angels and elves and fairies and all of those type of things would be top of my list.
