    We all have our own favorite characters from aSoIaF, but who would you be if you could be any of the characters (mostly warriors, I admit) above? Please state who and why, and if there's someone up there that you didn't like for whatever reason and do NOT want to be, say that too. :)

    Be warned: this is a public poll. You can also select multiple characters, but please don't select them all. :D If you do choose more than one, tell us who you liked best, then second best, etc.

    1: Rhaegar because he's Rhaegar: tragic character, noble, honorable, courageous, speculated father of Jon Snow, etc. etc.

    2: Jaime Lannister: arrogant, funny, deadly, and totally badass. How can you not love him? He's also been changing his attitude a bit, and I like the new Jaime too.

    You could also call him a tragic character. (Paraphrased quote) "...And yet I have shit for honor... I find it amusing that I am beloved by many for something I never did and reviled for my finest act." Jaime seems to be a misunderstood character, and I wonder what's going to happen to him next.

    3: Sandor Clegane: one of the most mysterious and interesting characters in the book. Kidnapper of Arya Stark, slayer of her friend Mycah, Joffrey's dog, and protector of Sansa Stark: exactly what is he? He showed mercy to both Arya and Sansa, trying to help them, and yet he killed Mycah and others without a second thought. The Hound claims to hate Gregor Clegane (which we certainly have evidence of). But in the Hand's Tourney in "A Game of Thrones," when Gregor attacked Loras Tyrell with his sword, his brother came to Loras' rescue although it's clear that he doesn't particularly like Loras. It's arguable that he fought Gregor because he hated him, but why did he choose to spare his brother's life? Gregor was doing his best to kill Sandor, but the Hound never struck a blow at his brother's unprotected face. Why does he do that? And why did he confide in Sansa Stark of all people? (I'm hoping that the AFFC mystery chapter is a Sandor PoV...)

    And as for that "dead" comment, Turgon, only Rhaegar, Eddard, and Oberyn are dead! :D

    1. Jon Snow
    2. Sandor Clegane. He's cool, but it would be hard being him, he seems to be a tormented man . . .

    lol. Too true. I go with Barristan though. It seems he is going to be okay for a while with Dany there.

    I LOVE Jaime, he's one of my favourite characters. I love reading about him, but it doesn't mean I want to be short a hand, and enjoy sleeping with my sister :yak:

    I don't think Jaime's really one of those guys you'd see and think "Yeah, thats who I wanna be !"

    If I had to pick one, it'd be Jon Snow.

    Sorry, I was going to set up a female poll soon (and you're right, I'd rather be Arya/Dany than any of the males).

    But Elan, he's the Commander of the Kingsguard (one reason why I love him, besides his entire matter...)

    So who do people want to see in the female poll? Arya and Dany, of course, probably Sansa and some of the wildlings...

    You got to have the Queen of Thorns. Anyone who takes off "you know who" is the best.

    I went with Jon and Tyrion.

    Jon is the only one who doesn't get harshly skrewed over (ie dead, mained, etc...). Me being somewhat of a wuss, doesn't want to die.

    Tyrion is the coolest guy ever. Had Sansa loved him, and they had gone home to Winterfell and had tonnes of children I could die happy. Nevertheless, he had Shae, killed Tywin, pissed off Lysa, helped Bran, helped Jon, opposed Cercei, etc, etc, etc.... Best of all though, hes still alive, and is only missing a nose.

    btw, if Bronn was on the list I would have chosen him too.

    For the men, I chose Oberyn, Barristan, and Tyrion. Oberyn was such a good character; but if I was him I would have just killed Gregor and been done with it. None of this vengeful nonsense.

    Barristan is just such a good man, you can't not like him. Stubborn, proud, and loyal to a fault.

    I'm definitely a fan of Tyrion. Great character, definitely makes the most of himself.



    Where's Lord Littlefinger on the list? :sitonsmil

    Sorry! :p I liked Rhaegar over Littlefinger... so... umm... :D

    Anyway, I'm putting up a female character poll:

    1) Asha Greyjoy
    2) Ellaria Sand
    3) Arya Stark
    4) Sansa Stark
    5) Daenerys Targaryen
    6) Brienne of Tarth
    7) Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns
    8) Val
    9) Ygritte

    If you want someone else up there, tell me, and if you desperately want someone removed (and there's a lot of people agreeing with you) I'll do it. And I've probably forgotten some important character, so tell me if I have...

    Myrcella might be another one to have, and I don't think anyone wants Lysa or Cat up there. I can't remember anyone else at the moment.
