I am not sure but it could be Black Roger as I believe the other are Discworld characters but I am not sure if Black Roger is.

Close enough. Black Roger was leader of the dog Guild, so the only one that was not human.
Your turn Kuu.

Oops I forgot to post a question.

If you have one you can post it, battleofendor. I think I am better at solving them than I am of thinking them up.

Is it Stacey? I believe the others were all pilots in the Star Wars movies.

Bravo Zulu Ms. Moonsong!

Three were actually pilots at th Batttle of the First Death Star at Yavin Five. Of those three, Wedge Anitilles, played by Denis Lawson, was the only one to survive the attack, and he later became the only Rebel pilot to participate in all three major fighter battles, Yavin, Hoth, and Endor.

Stacey was a Rebel pilot added in the Star Wars fan film Pink Five.

After you get yourself a cookie, it's your turn.

I'll sat three are common as horror movie villians

1.Willie = One Eyed Willie from "Goonies"?
2. Jason = Jason Voorhees in "Friday The 13th"
3. Valentine=David Boraneaz's character in "Valentine"
4. Nathaniel= I've got no idea.

I'm going to say 4. 4. Nathaniel

Okie... since it has been more than 12 hours with only one guess, here's a clue.

It involves the main character of one of my favorite authors.

Ok, This is my guess.

Valentine is the only one of those characters who has been killed. Anita and Richard killed him.

Jason, Nathaniel and Willie are all still very much alive.

Is that where you were going or do I need to dig deeper?

You are right that Valentine is the odd one out, but I was thinking a little deeper than that. It has more to do with Anita, and nothing to do with Richard.

And Ronnie would argue that Willie was alive.

Oh boy, I'm stumped. Wait, I think I may have it.

Valentine gave Anita her scars.

You're right Ronnie would argue about Willie being alive

You are close enough.

Willie, Jason and Nathaniel are on Anita's short list of people she truly cares about. Those she would save at almost any cost. Although her list keeps growing with every book... Richard, Jean-Claude, Micah, her leopards, Rafael, Asher....

Valentine was on her hit list. "Was" being the operative word.


Looks like it's your turn, Indie.

And here I swore I wasn't going to play this game ! These things get addictive!

My guess is that Maplethorpe is The Odd One Out. He was a photographer and the other three were specifically modern painters.

I almost hope I'm wrong since then I won't have to think of a new list .

Interesting... All characters from The Big Chill.

Meg, played by Mary Kay Place
Harold, played by Kevin Kline
Chloe, played by Meg Tilly
Michael, played by Jeff Goldblum

At first, I thought it might be Meg, because that is one of the actor's names. Then I thought it might be Chloe, because I believe she is the only one who doesn't use drugs.

I think I'm gonna say Chloe.

! Well done, Silver Moonsong! Although your reason wasn't exactly what I was thinking, Chloe is correct (and your reason works, too). I picked her as The Odd One Out because she was the only among the "weekenders" in The Big Chill who didn't attend college with the others---those that actually spent the whole weekend, that is.

You're up next...

Darn... didn't even think of that reason. She was there because she was Alex's girlfriend. Duh.

Okie, I think I have one that is a little easier than the last one.

1. McGonagall
2. Black
3. Tonks
4. Skeeter
