It's Stephen King's birthday! Who is your favorite character from one of his books?
I fell in love with Eddie Dean. Sure, Roland Deschain, he's all right, if you like the strong silent type with the preternatural gunslinging powers and the bombadier blue eyes. If, you know, that floats your boat.

But that poor smartmouthed little smackhead from Brooklyn won my heart. More than that, I think I internalized the character. I thought in his voice for weeks and months. I could channel him in an instant. I don't know why.

There are others. I could probably name half the cast of The Stand, even some of the not-so-nice guys. I got lost in the woods with Trisha McFarland. I got little crushes on Mike Noonan and Ben Mears--writers, duh. But on some primal level, I connected with Eddie. I cried over Eddie.
