My Favourite Fictional Characters

Saturday, August 04, 2012

I've never really done a list post before, so this is a whole new experience for me, but since I stopped doing about me posts I thought I might start doing some lists instead so you guys can get to know a little bit more about me. These aren't the most impressive characters, some of them aren't particularly well written, but for one reason or another these are the characters I find most interesting, the ones I feel genuine affection for. 

Sheldon Cooper: He's awkward, I wouldn't really want to be friends with him, but Sheldon is, in my opinion, one of the funniest characters on tv. He's my go to guy if I need a good laugh. 
Neville Longbottom: He started off as a shy little boy and turned into a hero, one of my favourite characters from the HP series. 
Severus Snape: My other favourite HP character, I was one of those people who cheered and jumped up and down when I found out my suspicions about him were true. 
Katniss Everdeen: I've got to admit, I was caught up in the whole Hunger Games fever, although I haven't seen the film yet. Katniss kicks ass and takes names, and she doesn't need a man to do it. 
Barney Stinson: Another character that just makes me laugh, I think it's great HIMYM is letting him evolve a little as well. He's legendary.
Jasper Whitlock: Ok, so I fall for every gimmicky book that comes out, I admit it. It's one of my biggest embarrassments. Jasper is the only character in the Twilight who seems to have a little bit of depth, and it helps that I associate him with Jackson Rathbone. 
Vivi: Final Fantasy 9 was my favourite computer game as a teenager, I was absolutely obsessed with it, and Vivi was my favourite character. He's little, and he's emotional, and he has so much potential.
Lisa Simpson: Lisa made me feel like it was ok to be the geeky vegetarian when I was little, and I will always  love her for that.
Katherine Janeway: In my opinion the best Star Trek Captain of all time. Although that might have to do with the fact I am slowly rewatching Star Trek Voyager at the moment.
Death: If you haven't read any of the Discworld novels then you are missing out. Terry Prattchett is a comedic genius. I only started reading them last year but with 39 in total I've still got pretty far to go. Death appears in every novel but two, even if it is only for a single line, and every time he appears I feel like I'm seeing an old friend, an unexpected surprise.

So, like I said, not the most literary, or complex characters, but they are the ones that make me happy, the ones who cheer me up on a bad day. I could have listed more, I could have listed less, but this is where it ended up. Have you guys got any fictional characters that you go to on bad days? Or are you just horrible disappointed that I am one of those Twilight and Hunger Games people?
