Question of the day

Posted in Apropos of nothing at 3:06 pm by The Lizard Queen

Can any of you think of/suggest famous literary/historical/mythological/cinematic brother/sister pairs?  Here are some that I’ve already got floating around my head:

I’ll explain further once the deed is done.  🙂



  1. Scout and Jem Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird
    Charles and Camilla Macaulay from The Secret History
    Raggedy Ann and Andy

And what if bears had several children? Would they get a longer name like Sister Number Two? Or better yet, Accident?)

    And who can forget the Bobsey Twins, The Hardy Brothers, and those Sweet Valley High chicks–though I preferred step-sisters Dawn & Mary Anne from the Baby-Sitters club. Those were some good old fashioned working girls!

    In contemporary times, you’ve got David Sedaris & his brother, or pair him up with his famous sister Amy. But they’re real people.

    I think that’s all I’ve got for now.
