    Pretty simple really - I think we've done characters we love and characters we hate, but this is about the characters whose rampant immorality/conniving/whatever make us squirm, but who we can't resist reading about. Apologies if I forget someone important.

    Well, my votes went to Cersei, Littlefinger and Melisandre - Cersei because I love watching her unravel before our eyes and can't wait for her dramatic end, Littlefinger because he's why I put "conniving" in the original post and Melisandre because.... well, she's creepy, but in a way that's interesting to read.

    I love the hate the Hound. Sometimes I even love to love him.

    I really love to hate Walder Frey. Can't wait to see him go down.

    I voted for Cersei, for obvious reasons..

    But looking at this list makes me realize that i REALLY need to re-read the books as a refresher..

    I voted for Cersei, Gregor, Meslisandre, Lysa, Viserys, and Joffrey.

    Cersei: She has the most votes, so do I really need to explain?

    Gregor: Large Nastyman. Sandor may be mean, but he doesn't kill people for fun... Plus, Gregor is Cersei's lackey.

    Melisandre: She seems simply evil in an UNCOOL way!

    Lysa: Insane, homicidial, and selfish doting mothers are the worst...

    Viserys: He's greedy. I'm the vessel of a dark god, and even I'M not that greedy!

    Joffrey: We may both be evil, but NO ONE is as spoiled as he is (I hope)

    Walder Frey is in second place? Whoa... I'm surprised so many people put him in the 'love to hate' category, rather than simply loathing him.

    You think so? I think she's quite impressive - her god does actually have powers, we see that in the scene with Maester Cressen and all of Stannis' knights are pretty much terrified of her. She's definitely creepy but for me she's one of the coolest evil characters.

    So true - I don't think I've ever seen anyone even try to make allowances for Lysa.... and when you consider the stuff we ASOIAF fans can forgive, that shows just how despised she is.

    Had to go with Gregor, Walder, Joffrey and Littlefinger. These are the characters I thought were most worthy of my hate. Littlefinger especialy cause he just seems 'wrong'.

    Walder Frey in 2nd place. Yeah I guess it is odd to say you love to hate him, but he ticks all the boxes you want in a 'evil' character so I like that he is so typically bad. I must hate him cause I really want him dead, so I'm looking forward to his demise lol.

    I think Walder's being voted for because he's the only Frey up there, most of us are just dying to see them all wiped out...

    Probably true lol. There wasn't exactly enough space to put all the Freys we might hate up there... there are a lot of them after all.

    lol, Very true.

    We need to find a way to get them all in the same place at the same time. Too bad they don't go to the sept on Sunday...

    Also, where's Cru? I'm surprised he didn't check off Robert Baratheon.

    I don't know if he loves to hate him... he's more of a classic rabid fanboy :D.

    An 'other' option wouldn't have gone astray, would it? I'll remember that next time lol.

    Randyl is indeed someone I absolutely HATE as well.

    However, in the theme of "love to hate", I put Cersei, Littlefinger, Varys, Melisandre, and Bronn. Some of the others up there I just straight-up hate. These are characters I absolutely despise but want to read more about...
