Raven would be as much fun as a puppy, but Dora would probably be a more interesting conversationalist. Faye might be hard to cope with at times, but she's definitely the kind of person you want to have your back when you're in trouble. Steve is your basic low-key drinking and video games buddy.

I voted Raven because me and the tequilla monster are already long time buddies, and he says that Raven would make a good addition to our little clique.

Why has no one voted Hanners yet? Personally I'd love to meet a Meena, she's very funny.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

I coudn't choose. Because I have a friend with nearly every personality of the QC cast, its hard to want one from the actuall comic. Except for one Pintsize. While I might consider it, it could be Hazardous to my health to have a pintsize. Though things may be more fun with a little bit of chaos, and my group of friends have a good record number of drama free days; it can be boring.

Faye, but a 24/7 sloshed Faye, so she can bellow at the Sergeants instead of me muttering at them when they decide another half hour run right before a nice, brisk session of hand to hand training is just what the doctor ordered at 5am.

Only a half hour run?

You should be as fresh as a daisy after a such a short wee run.  And as a warrant officer, your sergeants only have your best interests at heart when they do this for you.  If your all sweaty and panting, thinking that you're going to die, then you won't be worried about the full kit inspection that will follow the PT session and will precede breakfast.....

Dora. But only if she had the hots for me, though. Girls + tattoos = awesome.

After that short run, done directly after waking, I'm bloody well awake, and sweating enough to single handedly relieve the drought over most of Australia - not wanting to die or panting (too much, but 11km is a rather serious pace for 30 min. For me, anyway).  What i'm bitching about is the fact that the hand to hand always ends with whoever we have picking me for a demonstrator.

And I don't have the kit inspection yet, I leave for 1RTU tuesday, but for the last month the rotating full time members at the local reserve base have been putting myself and a few other new recruits through our paces from 5-8, three times a week. Don't make it seem any worse than it already does.

Hannelore's got more votes than Dora. I wonder why.

You are all a bit strange because the characters are not actually real and no matter how hard you tried you could never be friends with them
(I bet they wouldn't like you anyway. Being that you are people that post on Comic forums about how you want to be friends with imaginary people.)

...Considering how in depth people discuss these imaginary characters in the WCT's, from analyzing their personality quirks to predicting their individual reactions to different situations and beyond, you're choosing to knock this? It seems more like a non-serious way of comparing personalities and choosing a favorite character. Why even comment at all if you are going to take it so seriously?

That being said, Dora or Wil. Granted we don't much about Wil and it could be revealed later on that he is a dog rapist or something, but thus far he seems like a hilariously entertaining guy.

But I have to see them as my friends to fill the terrible loneliness (weeps into keyboard).

Dora is pretty awesome. But isn't a little sad that we're talking about being friends with people that don't exist?

Haha, it is a little sad. But after over 1,000 strips each one's background and personalities have really fleshed out. In a sense, don't we all know them pretty damn well? Right people! Erm...right?

Either way, it was a hard decision. I had to choose between Dora, Hanners and the Tequila Monster. After I remembered how much I hate tequila, it was down to Dora and Hanners. I thought about it for a bit, and decided on Dora. Hanners might get a little old after a bit with all her OCD-ness and such. Both are smashing but Dora might be a more interesting and compatible person.

I went for Winslow. Just because I wouldn't mind having a little AnthroPC running around the house. Especially one that plays music. And one that isn't destructive and prone to wear pube-beards.

I voted Marten.

He seems a nice guy and is kinda like me.

Second choice would be Faye, but then again I have enough hot-and-single-but-not-interested female friends as it is...

For "just friends" I'd have to say Hanners just because every time she says just about anything my first thought its, "ZOMG I totally want to have a friend like you!"

That reminds me of the Calvin and Hobbes where another adult is visiting the family and one of the parents asks their guest whether he'd had an imaginary friend when he was little.

He replied "Sometimes I think all my friends are imaginary".

If you prefer, you could read the question as "Which QC character most resembles your notion of friend material?"

i'd go with steve like someone quoted above "shut up and pray for the critical hit" a close second was faye, just cause she can be so damn sarcastic and throws out insults with the best of them.
