Writer's Block: Arms wide open

If you had to choose, what couple from TV, cinema, or literature, would you choose as your parents?

I think I'd be cool with Atticus Finch:

"When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake. But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion faster than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em."
- spoken by Atticus Finch, by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Hi,

I answered this questions a couple of weeks ago actually: See Below - http://kerkevik.livejournal.com/53281.html

Atticus Finch would be pretty cool but, after years of probably answering Tara, I have to say Sydney, but as Parents? Rory Williams & Amy Pond from Doctor Who would be my automatic answer now, I think.

No question really as, mostly, my heroes are solitary, as in Mr. Carton.

Still under Willow & Tara's spell,
Ray.

I read that post, thought it was a good answer. I don't know about Rory and Amy, though -- they're good and caring people, but maybe a bit too young yet to know how they'd be as parents. Certainly they'd work hard at it!

Atticus Finch should be a role model for parents. He wasn't perfect, but didn't aim to be.

This is a great answer to this question.

This was me in high school when the book was required reading...I wondered why he allowed Scout to refer him by his first name.

I wondered that, too. If I'd tried it, my parents would have corrected me *real* fast.
