"Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. you then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why."

Them's the rules; I don't make them up. I might have to crib a guess at the fandoms you're into, but we'll manage somehow.


Star Trek: Hmm... this one's actually a hard choice. Even not counting anything the reboot, I'm going to have to say Scotty. Not so good with people (how he made it to a command rank is beyond me), but he seriously knows his stuff, and is fiercely protective of his ship.

Star Wars: Luke Skywalker. A lot of people harsh on him for being too whiny and mopey, but I think it's understandable. Think about it from his perspective; in the beginning, he's an eighteen year old kid living on a miserable sandy rock on the edge of nowhere, and while his friends steadily leave for bigger and more exciting things, his uncle makes him stay on this barren planet and farm. Then, the only family he's ever known is brutally murdered. You'd mope and whine too, I bet. Besides, he gets a little less whiny. Kinda.

Harry Potter: NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM. Originally the weird accident-prone kid that nobody really likes, as the series progresses, we find out that, yeah, maybe he does sometimes know what he's talking about. In Deathly Hallows, he apparently drops a pair and takes up the leadership of the Rebel Alliance Dumbledore's Army, publicly and continually defying the Death Eaters for no better reason than 'it needed to be done'. Finally, in the last confrontation, while Harry goes in knowing that Voldemort can't actually beat him with the wand he's got, Neville, who is labouring under no such illusions of grandeur, again spits in the man's face and then, in truly epic fantasy fashion, decapitates a giant snake with a sword, making the whole win for the good guys possible. It doesn't get better than that.

Slayers: Lina Inverse; and not just for the obvious reasons. She's the glue that holds the team together; without her, even if Gourry, Zelgadis, and Amelia had met somehow, you can bet they wouldn't travel together. Plus, she's got a rather healthy sense of self, a never say die attitude, and when the chips are down, she does what's right.
