If you could befriend any fictional character, who do you choose and why?  
Under what context would I meet this fictional character?  This is a more interesting question when you consider how this meeting is even arranged.  I pick Tyrion Lannister.  He can drive the conversation and he is amusing.  Maybe he can tell me what happens in the Winds of Winter.
