Loor, the Traveler from Zadaa. Pendragon series by D.J. MacHale

Loor looked straight ahead as she strode along. Her jaw set. I’d seen this look before. She had her game face on. I know you guys can picture her. She’s hard to forget. I’d grown a few inches since I first met her on Denduron, but she still had me by a solid two inches. Her once almost-waist-length black hair was a bit shorter now, falling to her shoulders. I guess the long hair got in the way when she did her training. As you know, Loor is a warrior. Here on Zadaa they call the warrior class “Ghee.” When I first met Loor, she was a warrior-in-training. Since then, she has been elevated to full-fledged warrior status. I’m guessing she was at the head of her class. She’s that good. She even looks the part. This girl is totally cut. I’m talking stupid-low body fat. It isn’t hard to see this since her lightweight leather armor reveals a lot of skin. Wearing heavy metal armor like the knights of the Round Table wouldn’t fly here on searing-hot Zadaa. You’d end up cooking like Spam in the can. Assuming Spam is actually cooked, which I’m not so sure about. But whatever. You get the idea. The warriors here had to be protected, but cool. Unlike me, who had to be wearing a wool-freakin’-blanket.

The muscles in her long arms and legs flexed as she moved down the street, making her look even more formidable. I guess when you’re a professional warrior, having an awesome athletic body goes with the territory. So to speak.

Excerpt from book 6 "The Rivers of Zadaa"

Right now I'm emulating Kailee (sp?) from Firefly because "there ain't a power in the 'verse as can stop Kailee from bein' cheerful." She's smart, sweet, kind, brave, calm in a crisis, and gets it done. While being absolutely adorable. Yeah, I can get behind that. :)

I am going to shift my warrior to Mystique today. I would like to shapeshift and morph my body. I am feeling a bit stagnant physically and am ready to hustle toward the new physique. She is not always the nicest bada** but she is definitely one and I need to get it done!

Yay, I have quite a few. Popeye rules! and A. Finch is someone I would totally marry (such a good man).

I think today I will celebrate Daredevil. He is an underdog on a mission to put justice in place. His extrasensory awareness allows him to perceive more that just what is on the surface. Which is completely freaking awesome! He is a self-proclaimed "Not bad guy". I could rock some of that!

I also love Hermione and Atticus Finch. Both of them have an incredible amount of courage in their convictions. And that's worth more than gold, even at today's market price, lol.

hhmmm I have actually never read To Kill a Mockingbird. I guess I will have to do that. I have it at home because my son had to read it when he was in like 9th grade! When I was in school we read tons of Shakespear and I hadn't really gotten into reading yet, and when I did I read my mom's books which were Stephen King and Dean Koontz!

I love Lucy from the Scarpetta novels by Patricia Cornwell. Not the newest few books because I don't like the direction that any of the characters have gone in, but the older books. And Scarpetta herself is pretty awesome.

Just Keep Swimming!

Never look back!

Okay--do not hate on me. I LOVE Hermione from the Harry Potter series. (especially the books). She's smart, brave, clever, empowered, and confident. I wish I had been like her when I was her age...

As for a heroic man--Atticus Finch. Hands Down. (To Kill A Mockingbird) He is the wisest character I have ever met in a book.

My favorite from the Buffy crew is actually Spike: he goes from The Big Bad to literally saving the world - three times. Spike shows that no matter who or what you have been, you can always turn yourself around and make good.

Going to the Buffy characters again, I like Xander. He has no special powers, but he can take a hit, and come back swinging with the best of them. And Giles, with his understated charm, who has such wonderful control of his more aggressive "Ripper" side.

I'm not usually too taken with most warrior-esque female characters. They always seem too conflicted between their power and their need to be female, as if that were somehow a problem. So, I'm writing my own.

Is Buffy & crew too obvious? My favorite was Faith-she was edgy & darker...Willow was also a warrior in her own sweet & geeky, witchy way...

I read so many books that it changes often but todays pick would be:

Harry Dresden of the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher.

He is so hopelessly flawed and yet gears up each day to do the right thing no matter what, no matter how hopeless it seems and how many Big Bad Ugly Monsters he has to take down. He just does it cause it has to be done.

LOVE Eve Dallas! I listen to audio books on my commute and have heard several of hers. I had no idea there were so many books until I was planning to start at the beginning of the series. emoticon So now I'm just doing it as a hit or miss type.

Eve is the coolest book detective ever! And that's saying something b/c I loved the Alex Cross series too.

Eve Dallas from the "In Death" series of books written by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts)

I have always thought of her as a Warrior. She came from abuse and rape, but grew up to be a Homicide Cop who stands for those who died. She is such a flawed individual who refuses to give up give in or conform. She ROARS - sometimes at the top of her lungs and sometimes without saying a word.

There are at least 30 books in the series and if you've never read any I highly recommend you do (they're better if you read them in order, but it's not necessary).

Mine is YODA! "Do or do not, there is no try."

He's adorable in a really strange way, has wisdom far exceeding his peers, talks in such a way you have to really listen to understand, and can kick some rear if needed! emoticon

I thought of this as I was looking at my background of my computer. It's set to one of those motivational type poster looking thingys that shows a picture of my beloved little green guy with the above quote with Perseverance at the bottom. I'm removing "try" from my fitness journey vocabulary. Just DO it already! I even have a tiny little sticker of him on my phone case to remind myself where ever I am.
