Name your favorite ‘IT’ character and we’ll tell you your biggest fears

Whether your favorite character from the IT movie was a kid from the Loser’s Club or Pennywise, we know your deepest and dumbest fears.

Your favorite fictional characters say a lot about you, given that they’re probably the characters you most associate with. Do you love Eddie because you know that having two fanny packs is a necessity, not a choice? Maybe you sympathize with Ben because you also listen to music you don’t want anyone to know about?
