If I could cunjur someone up from outside... Well I was torn but then if I was outside Jane would already exist.

So the answer is Bean, i fell in love with him and would conjur him up given any chance at any price.
If Bean wasn't possible, then Petra.

For some reason, I have always loved Alai. Maybe it's because Alai is a Muslim and he just seems so spiritual, especially in Shadow Puppets when Petra goes to Damascus and sees Alai in the garden. I could picture that scene perfectly.

That was my favorite scene in the entire Shadow series. Excellently executed, OSC.

Kill devil hill, I think I've been to your name sake!! Aaanyway... I fell in love with Peter. There was a scene in one of the books that insinuated he wasn't as violent as Ender (and everyone else) thought...but rather manipulated to follow the path that he ended up on. I loved pseudo peter in CotM.. An exact representation of what everyone thought he really was. I hurt for him a little...

Actually, Ender's Game is one of the one books with a character that I naturally see myself with someone. I mean, whatever the book, movie, series, ect, I usually have one character that I play favorites with, develop a crush on. It's my own way of being boy crazy, I guess. XD

Although I do have a soft spot for Peter, and found myself really loving him once I'd started Shadow of the Hegemon, since Ender's Game I always loved him the most. Which is surprising since I usually don't go for the stereotypical heroes. There's just something about Ender that you gotta love. As Alai puts it in Ender's Shadow, "If you're good, you love him. If you're bad, you hate him." Not just the fact that Ender's soul is inherently good, it's all the struggles he has to go through to keep that, maybe its the fact that he perserveres even when you'd think any normal person would have given up or gone crazy by that time. He has an unbreakably good soul that I love.

And throughout the Ender series, as I read the books, for some reason--and this has never happened to me before--I always saw myself there at Ender's side. Whether or not I was an active character, whether or not I was just a person standing in the background, among those cheering him on and calling his name, I was always there.

I roleplay Ender's Game with a friend of mine I introduced to series to and I do have an OC of mine that ends up falling in love with Ender. Although she's not my clone, I do project a lot of my emotions into her, because no matter what Ender does or where his life takes him, I always see myself facing it all right there with him.

I fell in love with Bean while reading the shadow series, but after considering for a while people who I could really see myself with I realized that he was really to logical for me (he is still one of my all time favorite EG characters btw). I think Ender would be my ideal, however its also probably part of the reason I don't have a boyfriend, I compare everyone to Ender and, lets face it there is really no one like him. I guess if I really loved someone I would get over their imperfections, I could certainty go for someone like Peter or even Dink (I have a bit of a rebellious streak and kinda blow off things that others find important.) but in terms of crush/boyfriend type love I don't think I can go for anyone without always knowing in the back of my mind that they aren't Ender and never will be. However, if anyone said to me what Miro said to Jane, "You'll go on needing Ender all your life and all you'll ever find are poor substitutes like me." I would marry them. period. end of topic. that was one of the sweetest lines in the series.

Valentine. All the way. Her good intentions and way of saying the worst things when you need to hear them, but in the best ways so it doesn't hurt. And just her way of being social, bring the community together perfectly, the thing that she did much better than Ender did. Valentine is my woman.
Salaam, my friend.

Definitely Petra..../me daydreams of what it would be like if the enderverse were real...
I think I would be good friends with Peter because sadly enough he is much like me so we would either be friends or kill each other.
I would say Val but shes just to...good.

Petra,

She has all you could ever want in a woman. She smart, charming, beautiful (at least in my mind), totally the type you'd "bring home to mom" but also the type that would kick some butt in a barfight if need be. She's strong, independent, super sassy, and yet craves the companionship of a good man who will lead her well. She's the type of person you want to be the mother of your children. A partner in crime and also someone to cuddle up and read with. She's encouraging, and pushes you to do better but not in a way that's unrealistic, she just sees the potential and wants you to thrive. Yessir, Petra is the girl for me.

I've always had a crush on Peter too, original and the one Ender created. I guess it's the whole bad boy with a conscience type of attraction. I think he's the only literary character I've ever liked in that sense, nice too see he also has a fan club :)

I think I fell in love with Ender in the same way that he fell in love with the hive-queen. Through reading all of the books, I came to know him in such a way that there wasn't a possibility of not loving him. I sobbed for a good ten minutes when I finished the books because it was all over.

Probably jane/neoVal cuz of how understanding and helpful she is throughout the series. Also OSC depicts young Val as kinda hot
