Great lesson. I just want to point out how important it is for the MC to have flaws. I think this is really important to point out for Christian writers. There is at times an attempt to make our MC's too good and to set them in conflict against the really bad, but doing this never really creates suspense for me as a reader. Yes, the good guy is supposed to win, but make it really difficult for them, make them fall down, make them not win all the way, make them...just not be so perfect or I'll want them to actually lose. Does that make any sense? (And I think this about characters I've created too.)
As for the challenging question:
1. Lord of the Rings - (film) Will Frodo ever wipe that look from his face?
2. Charlotte’s Web - Will bacon and ham ever be made from some, T-E-doubleR-I-doubleF-I-C pig? (sorry if I messed up the quote)
3. LOST (the television show…pick any episode) - Will Jack continue to remind me of Frodo more and more as the seasons progress? When will all the "cursed numbers" be explained in full? What year is this? Did Ben just kill Penny or Desmond? Is Penny really Annie? (have to stop myself)
4. Noah’s Ark - Will the people repent and change God's mind? He wouldn't really do that, would he?
5. Toy Story - Will Buzz get over his Pinocchio complex? the Theology of Toy Story: It is better to be a toy in the hands of your owner than a real space ranger without an owner. hmmmm
6. You’ve Got Mail - When will he tell her his handle?
