Dr. M: Day Four-- A character you feel you are most like (or wish you were)

I will start with the "Character I feel I am most like," and then self-deprecate myself into who I "wish I were like" but first I have to say that for some reason this challenge was much easier with anime. Shakespeare and I completed a version with anime back in ye olde times (June 2011) you can go look at our answers if you want.

So, to answer this question, technically, I could just refer you to a 2011 post in which I claim that I am both versions of Nelliel Tu Odelschwank from Bleach.
Crazy girl-child and Badass Centaur Lady at the SAME TIME!
That's me. 
I mean, she IS in the manga! And if you want to click through, Dear Readers, you will see that I have some pretty good reasons for choosing this ousted Arancar as my "most like."

Or, I could try to make myself honest and ask where all the mangas about car obsessed, empoverished female college English instructors with pissy attitudes towards the world are located. They should be in Mechas...I am a machine. Or, maybe I'm a minor character. Someone's unnamed teacher in the background of some slice of life, school-days manga. Waaah! The thought makes me want to go rob a bank, just so I'll get my own storyline.

Who am I most like?

Shigure Sohma

Shigure Sohma. That picture above is pretty deceptive, if you have not read Fruits Basket...what a studious, smug person, you might be thinking. No...not really.

Shigure is a writer, who dabbles in both romance novels (under a pen name) and academic work. He is secretly one of the characters of the Chinese Zodiac...the dog. I like dogs. Shigure can be boisterous and flirtatious and pervy, but he also has a sort of dark, twisted side as well, which shows through on occasion. He refuses to wear socks or shoes, and is usually barefoot. I too am usually barefoot (ask around). He is lazy, and will get out of anything to complete his work, but always completes it. He's very reliable without seeming reliable at all. He can provide good advice, and is constantly telling others "Que será, será" in an attempt to calm them down, but he's not actually very "go with the flow." He holds grudges; he is spiteful; he is defensive of his family; he is capable of great kindnesses; he is easily bored and more easily distracted.

I don't look like this, but I make this face...a lot.
And then there's this:

Right on, Brother!
(Sz the lady who went to sleep at 5 am last night...why not?)
The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that I'm a chubbier, girl version of Shigure. I don't know that it's a good thing.

NOW, who do I want to be like?

This is Yuki Amalsy's Chibi (cutey) version of Dean Winchester.
Go check out more of her drawings on Deviant Art. 
Too bad Supernatural isn't a manga. Someone would just screw it up anyway (like the anime...I'm still sore about that)!

Yes, I still want to be Dean Winchester, mostly because I'd get to drive that car, and fight monsters. There isn't much better than that.
