A Meme of Her Own Making

Happy New Year, friends and listers!

I felt like posting about the new Sherlock, but I haven't actually watched it yet - I'm struck in that awkward rut where you REALLY WANT TO WATCH but also don't want to ruin a moderately good thing.

So, instead, I've been making a list of 15 Favourite Characters Ever and let me tell you, it was very harrrrd. Indeed, such toil and suffering went into it, I have no choice but to share it with you, my dears! I was thinking you could do it too?

Okay, I sorted them by categories for great convenience.

The Immortal being with a weird name and an unfortunate thing for humans:
The Doctor - Doctor Who
The Sphynx - Subnormality
Spike - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Bonus mention: Crowley - Good Omens

The blondes who keeps growing beyond the scope of her (his) own narrative:
Briony Larkin - Chime by Franny Billingsley
Brienne of Tarth - A Song of Ice and Fire
Rose Tyler - Doctor Who
Bonus mention: Tyrion Lannister - A Song of Ice and Fire

The redhead who keeps the universe together and is the hero of the story:
Donna Noble - Doctor Who
Cordelia Vorkosigan - Vorkosigan Saga, by Lois Macmaster-Bujold
Ron Weasley - Harry Potter
Bonus mention: Mistress - Oglaf (NSFW, being Oglaf)

The classy pacifist:
Psmith as in pshrimp - Mike and Psmith, by P. G. Wodehouse
Lorne - Angel
Most Noble Adolphus Gillespie Vernon Ware, Duke of Sale - The Foundling, by Georgette Heyer
Bonus mention: Adelaide Brooke - Doctor Who

The sacrificial lamd:
Esmeralda - The Hunch-back of Notre-Dame (Disney!)
Aral Vorkosigan - Vorkosigan Saga, by Lois Macmaster-Bujold
Buffy Summers - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Bonus mention: Steve, Son of God - The Second Coming

So, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to ask me about my feelings for however many characters you want to hear about - seriously, I could talk about these people for days - and then, if you want to, post a similar list to your own journals and thereby set forth a cycle of holiday-time squee.
