Best Characters

I'm totally in list mode right now, so we have a list of some of my favorite characters of all-time.  Again, no particular order, because it's just too hard to qualify them to that extent.

1.) Severus Snape~
I love him.  I. Love. Him.  As Alan Rickman put it after learning he'd won the Harry Potter World Cup, [a vote for Snape is a vote for love].  It's true. 

2.) Monica Geller~

I love this character.  She is a (former) fat girl and the character refects that well.  I speak from experience that with weight loss comes neurosis and Monica Gellar is the very embodiment of the obsessive, neurotic behavior that result from being a former fat girl.  I love her humor, her humanity, her crazy.  She is one of my poster children for "Quirky Brunettes Unite!"

3.) Spike - a.k.a. William the Bloody~

As a villain, he's hilarious and brought new life to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Even at the nadir of his character's life, he still maintains a fiery sense of humor and -- let's be honest here -- he's sex on legs and that doesn't hurt.  But the character is immensely complex and delightful and a breath of fresh air.

4.) Wesley Wyndam-Pryce

Ah, the perfect blend of book-nerd and sex appeal.  I love how he can be a whiney goob and still super sexy.  He is a pot of contradictions and I much enjoy that.

5.) Gollum

How can you not love him?  Obsessive, crazy, insane, wicked-intelligent, schizophrenic.  Be honest: he's your favorite, too.  In the book "The Hobbit," his decidedly twisted and creepy scenes were my absolute favorite.

6.) Calvin

If you don't love him, you don't have a sense of humor.  I do have a fear that if I ever have a son, he will turn out to be Calvin-esque.

7.) Hugo "Hurley" Reyes
He had some of the best lines on the show, he had insecurities (most) everyone can relate to, he was a little bit of a nutjob, he was a teddy bear.  He was sweet.  He made being LOST a little more fun with all the insanity happening around him.

8.) Hermione Granger

She's a geek, she's a bookworm, she (mostly) follows the rules and she's careful and believes in order - and she ROCKS!  Finally!

9.) Dobby

He was rather annoying at first, but later we started to like him and finally, fell in love with the spunky little house-elf.  He moved me, made me laugh, reminded me there is honor in subservience, and when his story came to an end I didn't just cry, I sobbed.

- That's all I can think of for now, but I'm sure there will be more later.  If there's someone on the list you're not familiar with, go to Wikipedia and look 'em up.
