    Default Your Dark Tower Relatives ...

    They say you can pick your friends, but not your family. Well just suppose you could pick your family ... and they you could select them from the Dark Tower Universe(s) ... who would you have and in what family position?

    I would love Moses Carver as my Grandad. I think Ted Brautigan would make a great Uncle. Eddie Dean would be a fantastic cousin ... especially if you only to meet him at birthdays and christmas time! (Anymore might get exhausting!) I think I already have a bunch of unsocial weird breakers as relatives at the moment.

    Anyone else?

    **Just thought ... this is in the wrong place on the board isn't it! Sorry ... can someone move it to the right place!**

    Susannah* is already my wife. I certainly couldn't ask for anything better than that.

    * well, with legs, and perfectly sane - at least comparing with me

    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    Jake as my son.
    ( my son's are great so I'd just add him in, not replace the ones I have)

    The answer is within

    great thread!!!

    ok.... i'd want Jake as a son, Oy as a pet, Susannah as a best friend, Eddie would be a much better BIG brother i think.. i'm not sure i'd want to be related to Roland as he wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice me for his tower. i agree that Moses Carver would make a kickass grandfather, but i think Aaron Deepeneau would too...Rosalita would be a good mom i think..

    Human kind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth.

    I'd want Roland , Cuthbert, and Alain to be my brothers so that we can kick it, drink, possibly shoot at random things together.
    Let's get a little crazy.

    I think we can assume nobody wants Cordelia as an Aunt?

    I'd like Ted Brautigan as my Dad, he reminds me of him anyway. John Cullum as an uncle, Jake as a brother and Eddie and Dinky Earnshaw as the crazy cousins you sneak off and get drunk with at family reunions

    I think Roland would be a cool godfather - you'd be scared to get into any shit, but if you took it like a man he'd totally help you bail yourself out.

    Oh, Roland as godfather would be awesome!!!

    Eddie as a cousin, Susannah too, for that matter.

    Father Callahan as an uncle, Rosalita as an aunt.

    The dream of dreams:
    Roland is my husband and we are living in Calla why try our best to bring up Jake. Oy is Jake's pet and soulmate, like in the series. Eddie and Susannah are our neighbours. And everything is the same in Calla and I am no more than a simple housewife.

    Roland would have understood.

    I would dance it with all my heart. You can be sure about it.


    (Do you still think this *great* thread should be moved somewhere? It looks okay here.)

    Roland would have understood.

    Funny that Roland hasn't been snapped up by many of us (except wholeheartedly by Letti ... )
    As THE GUNSLINGER was originally written I would have picked Roland as a brother, then Roland becomes more gruff and distant as the series moves on, certainly harder to like and more scary, though more of an interesting character. I noticed in rereading THE GUNSLINGER revised version and The Gunslinger Original version side by side (which I have just been doing to get me over the jones of finishing THE DARK TOWER recently!) that King has toned down the friendly Roland of the original novel quite a bit. Roland starts off the gruff and scary Roland ... the one that King the writer character is uncomfortable with.
    Anyone else see that?

    How many people want billy bumblers!!! lol ... They should do an Cuddly OY plushie. That would sell like hot cakes, say thankya!

    i'm sorry. did you just say that roland was friendly in the gunslinger? we are talking about roland deschain right? roland of gilead? roland who murdered every single person in tull. roland who raped sylvia pittston with his gun. roland who let jake drop.

    that roland?

    Roland's a friendly guy. That's why he'd make a good chia pet.

    I'd like John Cullum for a grandpa..he's all kick-ass for an old guy!
    Aaron Depneau for my other grandpa.
    Eddie for a big brother...I always wanted a big brother.
    Susannah as a really cool sister-in-law that you actually like (rare, I know).
    Jake as a son, of course with his pet Oy.
    Ted and Pere Callahan as uncles.
    I would totally want to have Rolland in my life somewhere, but he doesn't really bring to mind fuzzy family moments, so I'm not sure where it would be. I don't think he's the father type, but in some sort of protective type capacity. I guess godfather works for now until I think of better.

    Great thread!!!

    I have just started to type the same questions but you were quicker.
    That Roland?!?!?!

    I felt absolutely the opposite.
    When I first met Roland he was a killing-machine and as the story was going on I could meet and got to love Roland's human side.

    Roland would have understood.
