She also gets to have13 children... which is rather a daunting prospect... I'd want to be Eowyn but not for the adventure, but for Faramir...

It would be great to be Eowyn!

I have a question. When you "become" the ME character, do you also start thinking, feeling, and acting like that character ( ie you adopt the character's nature), or do you reain your own self, just in a different body? The solution would be choosing an obscure character on which you can elaborate in any direction, but that's not really fun.

If it's the first, Goldberry would probably be my choice. I think Eonwe has a good point about her and Bombadil - cheerful carefree life, but not really as simple as a hobbit life would be.

If it's the second, the choice is much more complicated. If I were to live a life of a different person but keep all my beliefs and the like - it's more like which role is closest to what I am. Thorin would fit rather nicely, but his gender doesn't. I guess I'll go with Morwen - not really because we are alike (which we are not), but because she's one of my favourite characters.

Don't bite my head off for this, please! - but it would also be somewhat fun to be a very evil character; my choice would be Glaurung, or Ungoliant. After you explore the "good side", it's fun to well, act evil. Just for a while.

Well, if you retained your own character and beliefs, you wouldn't be that character, would you? No, you would be transporting yourself, so to speak, into that character's place and into that character's name.

Mith, possibly hobbits didn't have hard labor. Maybe they are like our animals who don't usually have complications with carrying and childbirth. After all, so far as we know, there was no 'fall', so to speak, which means there may never have been a curse of painful childbirth.
Besides that, I would love to have a lot of kids. Not thirteen, certainly, but I know several families who have around that number. And each subsequent birthing seems to make it easier.

Hmm. Halbarad, or maybe one of the 30 rangers that formed the Grey Company. Simply because they were Rangers! Which is similar to my lifestyle nowadays anyways!

Celebrian. Because she's married to Elrond haha!

Elros! Because he was the first high king of Numenor...whose descendants just happen to be the Dunedain *whistles*.

As strange as it sounds I'd love to be Mahtan I sit there and do nothing, and yet get to see what all happened in Aman.
Then again, I'd also love to be Galadriel
