    So I decided that the other poll that recently appeared was totally sexist! So here is the proper poll.

    Oh I didn't include any Martin characters, because they're too many. So sorry about that. Basically I included all my favourites, just want to know what you all think is the best. And I made it public, hope it doesn't matter, but I want to know who votes for what. So go ahead please vote! Oh yeah and I'll give whoever votes rep points. Don't you all just love me! :p

    Didn't think that Arwen was brave or anything, just a seductoress... but if you give me agood reason for her being your favourite... well I'll accept the adition.

    Oddly I only know 2 names off that list Sapphira and Eowyn - at least from the books, Hermione I know from the films but not the books.

    However I'm disappointed to see no Lira (lyra - how do you spell that name) - where is Pullman in your list!
    Also Sabriel should be in that list too!

    outside of the film Arwen is actually rather a backseat character in the LOTR tales. She makes some key events, but from what I recall isn't much of a key "hero" (for example remember the flight to the ford originally never had Arwen appearing and it was a totally different elf who was present).

    I knew I wouldn't be able to satisfy you OR... but tell me who your ultimate favourite is and why, then we can so-called add her to the list.

    hmm I've honestly no idea - never really tried to put them into any kind of order as such and I'm pretty sure if I mention one name I'll forget another and then it will be a never ending case of revisions.

    I guess id put up Lyra or Sabriel as mentioned before though mostly cause those are the two first names coming into my head at the moment

    Oh well, let us know if you think of anyone else. Oh wait I haven't voted on my own poll.

    I vote for Paksenarrion because she's so brave and goes through many hardships to get to where she belongs. And she's unselfish and willing to offer up everything to save others.

    I also vote for Dane "wolf friend", clever, loves animals, can take animal shape and is also brave!

    I see Star Wars is Sci-Fi right, so someone like Leia doesn't make it on the list... lol
    If Red Sonja made it to the list, I would have probably voted for her.

    Of course Star Wars is Sci-Fi!!!!!!!!

    And yes Red Sonja would be a good choice for a heroic heroine for the list!

    Of course Star Wars isn't sci-fi, despite the futuristic setting.

    Well if you can explain the logic why Star Wars is sci-fi I'll agree.
