Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The plot deepens and the eerie similarities go much further:

I am in fact also a follower of Fourier. Well, okay, a different Fourier, but still. At the very least I seem to be using his transform a lot.

As for which character I am: I have read only Crime and Punishment, a long time ago in High School. However the Character Selector for Crime and punishment(scroll all the way down after submitting. you don't have to sing up) informs me that I am:
Dmitri Prokofich Razumikhin

Dmitri Prokofich Razumikhin (Дмитрий Прокофьич Разумихин) - Raskolnikov's loyal and only friend. In terms of Razumikhin's contribution to Dostoevsky's anti-radical thematics, he is intended to represent something of a reconciliation of the pervasive thematic conflict between faith and reason. The fact that his name means reason shows Dostoevsky's desire to employ this faculty as a foundational basis for his Christian faith in God.

Oh dear.  I came up as Raskolnikov.

But I'm afraid you're just another Raskolnikov, because you missed this hint in poemless' roman à clef:

while I am still alive, before I end up in a gulag or murdered by someone

Hmmm, so many murderers around here...

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Omg.  Did other people have "close seconds?"  I had, like, 100% Raskolnikov!  This is freaking me out.

Yes, I had the same exact combo as Swedish -- what does it mean?!?

I look like I'm almost tied between Razumihkin (#1) and Semyon Zakharovich Marmeladov (#2).  

Of course, I have no idea who those characters are but some day it will all make sense to me.

I come up as Avdotya Romanovna Raskolnikova
with Katerina Ivanovna Marmeladova and Sofya Semyonovna Marmeladova tied for n°2 ...

No surprise here - as I predicted above, I'm still Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov.
