tagged me in the 10 characters meme: List ten of your favorite characters in ten different fandoms and then tag ten people
In no particular order:1.
Chronicles of Narnia - Still Edmund, I think, though he has never been ahead by a very large margin and it's grown smaller over the years. I am awfully fond of almost all the characters. (Jadis is my second-favorite in general, and probably my most favorite for writing.)2.
Homestuck - This is tricky! Uh. Can I say Rose, Jade, Dave, Terezi, Karkat, Aradia, Roxy, Jane, Kanaya, Meenah, and Damara all together? It is really hard
to make distinctions any more finely graded than that, and anyway which one of that set I like best shifts from day to day.3.
Harry Potter - Probably Harry, giant unobservant doofus that he is. Secondarily Hermione and Ginny. I love Ron lots in canon, but find him fannishly uninteresting.4.
Naruto - Team 7. (By which I mean Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke.) You can't make me subdivide further. *resolve face*5.
Star Trek: AOS - Spock, Kirk, and Uhura.6.
Angel Sanctuary - Kira Sakuya. (Yes, this includes all incarnations.) Secondarily Setsuna and Sara.7.
Enchanted Forest Chronicles - Morwen, obviously! :DDD8.
Darkangel Trilogy - Aeriel, I think. It is
her story, and I so desperately want her to be happy.9.
Daredevil (MCU) - Matt. Secondarily Karen and Elektra. (I may find a reckless disregard for one's personal safety, a possibly unhealthy level of determination, and a willingness to deal violence more attractive than I really ought to. Also, someone should write me that threesome...)10.
Dark Is Rising sequence - Blodwen Rowlands! *evil grin* For reasons that are spoilers. But after her, Will, Jane, and Bran in no particular order.
In conclusion, I am kind of terrible at having favorite characters. This is not surprising -- I am terrible at having a favorite anything in any category. I like too many things and I don't want to rank them. *hands*
Secondary conclusion: I do tend to like main characters, insofar as any given canon even has
a main character rather than an ensemble. They aren't always in my top tier, but if I don't like them at all, I tend to stop reading.
I am, as always, terrible at tagging so please consider yourself tagged if you want to play! :)
