I’m currently reading “The Poisonwood Bible”, and I’ve face-claimed the protagonist-wife as Mary McDonnell. Now I can’t stop thinking about how it would make a perfect cinematography-centric movie with Mary in the lead. Imagine Mary’s perfection with the glorious Congo as a backdrop.
Actually, for every book I read that has a lead female in it, I always face-claim them with Mary, transforming her based on the book’s description (age-wise, mostly, so sometimes there’s baby!Mary). But most of the time, if the book says “blonde” or “ordinary-looking”, I automatically strike that out and just—“NO. MARY.”
Legit do the same thing :)
