I'm bored. And while I was bored I came up with this.
Say the characters from TWDG were Fables, and their appearances as we know them were actually glamours. Assume they were like Toad or Colin and had 'animal' forms. What animals would they be? I guess another way to put this would be 'Which animal best represents each TWD character'?
To start us off, I'd say that Carver kind of gives off a wolf vibe. He's got that big fur-lined jacket and his unkempt beard. Not to mention he's very protective of his people.
Also, Duck is kind of obvious.
If we get enough of these I'll start a list or something.
Lee: Wolf. Papa wolf.
Luke: Dog (Totally an excitable terrier of some sort.)
Luke's gotta be some kind of dog. He just loves them too much.
Carlos... maybe some big, hulking thing. Bear?
I think it'd be a cool parallel if Nick were a deer or elk or whatever the male equivalent is. His whole deer story and everything. And deer are kinda stupid at times.
Clementine is whatever is the cutest animal in the world is. Or a kitten. Can be adorable, loving and playful, but can also claw your mother fucking head off.
I like the buck comparison, though it might fit better for Pete; Pete could represent Nick's family and the deer is representative of that moment that they both shared. Or maybe Nick is the buck, and Pete is a stag.
Would a bear fit for Alvin? Y'know, with his 'silly bear' nickname Rebecca gives him?
Also thought of some more for Carver's group:
Bonnie - Fox. Like wolves (Carver) foxes are dog-like, and Bonnie and a fox share the same hair/fur colour. Also foxes look a little bit more weedy compared to a wolf which helps show who's in charge.
Also Johnny could be a Rottweiler (loyal guard dog) and similarly Troy could be Doberman Pinscher or something, that's had its bark removed.
