Okay, noone's winning yet. We have four who are on a tie!
Go Daine and Hermione!
I don't understand for Saphira
I wouldn't exactly call her a heroine worthy of votes
don't see how Hermione can have so many
Though I don't like Harry Potter or Eragon that much, so I'm biased
Oh Drewid, Sapphira, often saves Eragon, either through her actions or advice... and I like her, think she's way better than some people! Yeah, I'm also a bit worried about Hermione winning at the moment...
I don't mind Sapphira, she's quite nice. She doesn't exactly fit into the given category though, as all the others (I don't know all the heroines) are human[oid]
who can resist having the ability to shapeshift into any animal and speak with all creatures? while kicking ass to boot!
lmfao if ur talking abt Hermione my friend. ffs Polgara could do all these and a bazillion times better. srsly the one having 5 votes atm should be her. ffs I'm not being biased b/c I dun admit myself as a hardcore Eddings nut. srsly I'll have to admit that she's pretty much one of the, if not the most in depth heroine I've ever came across in any fictional media I've seen so far.
talking about Dane from Wild Magic... you know, Wolf Speaker, gets to save the universe from monsters, travels to the lands of the gods?
Oh sorry. I thought ur talking abt Hermione. srsly you should just do a quote function to prevent the confusion. -.-
Out of the Martin females it has to be Arya hands down.
I haven't read most of these.
But yeah, Lyra Silvertongue should definitely be on this list!
Daenerys Stormborn, mother of dragons!
Martin do have quite a stable of strong female characters. imo Dany as a character is still not yet there though in terms of mental fortitude due to her emotional reliance on Daario. Still, Dany together with Arya are my two most fave Martin girls.
Ironically, while Cersei is still my most hated female character, she does epitomize our classical feminist icon.
What's even much more of a paradox will be Sansa being the only other character breaking the stereotypical "emotionally attached" female.
But still, we all know GRRM is a well-known supporter of irony and paradox lol!
I don't see Tetra on this list anywhere.
Glorfindel was the elf meant to be there instead of Arwen, I think....
or was it fingolfin
it was glorifindel, an elf-lord whose power was revealed as a shining being of light when Frodo put on the Ring
In terms of GoT/ASOIAF, I'm a fan of Cersei.
Like many, I hated her at first.
However, I understand her now - I understand her motives, her history, what drives her and what she stands for. Much like Jaime (he's awesome), she's a character I came to like after getting to know her better. To me, knowing someone's backstory/history is important. You need to know WHY they do the things they do, not simply judge them on their actions.
As for this particular list - my vote went to Moiraine.
Moraine? What about Nynaeve and Egwene?
Even though Vampire Academy isn't one of my favorite book in the list, I still think that Rose is one of the most genuine characters I've ever read... and she is SO funny.
