    Hmm, bumping this thread a little...I voted for Bran Stark. Sure he was a little whiney and for now he is crippled. But I predict his character is going to be one of the most important in the next few books. He is the lord of Winterfell after all.

    I also would have gone with Jojen Reed had he been up there, I considered Jaime, but figured I could do without the incest.

    Yeah, Jojen's great too, and so's Bran... but I was trying to limit my characters. ;) I love all of them, to tell the truth...

    I have to go with Jaime. I like the fact that he knows that killing the king was the right thing to do, and saved alot of lives, yet lets everyone else think what they will. He has more honor than 90% of the characters, and doesnt care who believes him or not. Almost all the dispicable things he has done were for his sister who was manupulating him his whole life. Im glad to see he is finally realizing it. He has nowhere to go but up from here.

    You should add Littlefinger... I voted for Tyrion because of his sense of humor and cleverness. I really liked a Jaime chapter in a SoS, when Genna Lannister tells Jaime that Tyrion is Tywin's son

    I like all the characters listed (minus Theon) but I would actually "want" to be very few. They are mostly all children, crippled, dwarves, old, burned or dead. It is like picking the lesser of two evils.

    i voted for Jon Snow.

    I like all of the characters in their own way, but i wouldn't want to BE them.

    Jon Snow is the Head of the Night's Watch after all, and though so far (since being elected) he's been an ass, he does have quite a bit of power.

    Oberyn's my #1, although I don't know how much I'd like to have my face smashed in by Gregor Clegane. Love Tyrion and Jaime, but I wouldn't want to be an amputee or a dwarf. :p

    There's really no one up there who I'd like to be. I voted Jaime, Tyrion and Rhaegar since Tyrion and Jaime are the most wonderful - and hilarious - of the POV characters and Rhaegar's just so incredibly mysterious/hot. Plus he probably had a pretty good life when he was alive so he definitely wouldn't be the worst to be.

    I would choose Jon. But I also picked Ser Jaime because he gets to boink Cersei.

    Evilness? Is that the main point? What about the fact she would be your sister?!

    But it's within your control. You could not hump her.

    Then the whole story would be messed up! There would be no Song of Ice and Fire! It's my duty as a supporting character!

    This is getting so awkward.
