 1.) Protagonist 

Danielle de Barbarac 
Drew Barrymore as Danielle de Barbarac in Ever After
      Although "Beauty and The Beast" is my favorite fairytale, there is no denying that deep down inside there will always be a love for Cinderella. No one did the character of Cinderella justice than Drew Barrymore as Danielle de Barabarac in Ever After. Set in 16th-century France, Ever After combined both history and fantasy together and Danielle was created to be a woman ahead of her time. Intelligent, kind and courageous, Danielle had all the aspects that made Cinderella the beloved princess she has always been, but there was slight modern touch as well, as an educated woman with opinions and ideas that may have seemed extreme for a women to be talking about. There are no complaints about this character!

2.) Villain 

 Lady Morgana (Pendragon)
Katie McGrath as Lady Morgana Pendragon in Merlin
    In BBC's Merlin Lady Morgana is introduced as a generous and bold young women who shows no fear in standing up to her foster father, King Uther Pendragon. She is best friends with her maid Gwen, immediately befriends Merlin and plays a constant game of cat and mouse with her foster brother, Prince Arthur. Then Morgana's once happy and idyllic world begins to crash down around her when she begins to possess sorcery, which is forbidden in the kingdom of Albion and is punishable by death. Slowly, Morgana turns from the sweet lady to a conniving sorceress who is bent on making Uther (and eventually Arthur) pay for their injustice toward those with magic abilities. I loved how they made Morgana such a complex and multi-faceted character and as her character develops, you begin to see her downfall as a sorceress.

3.) Superheroes 

 Ororo Munroe//Storm
Halle Berry as Ororo Munroe//Storm in X-Men
      Seeing that X-Men was my introduction to MARVEL comics, it's only understandable that my favorite superheros are the X-Men themselves. Storm has been a favorite female superhero of mine for as long as I can remember. She is powerful, but soft-spoken and holds a great deal of wisdom and insight that has been gained though hard life experience. Not to mention, I love her abilities to manipulate the weather! In the beginning of the X-Men trilogy Storm admits that she fears humans and what they are able to do to mutants through their prejudice and hate. As the movies progress, Storm slowly overcomes her fear, most especially when her beloved students are in danger and she will fight to death to protect them.

4. That I'd want to be friends with

 Caroline Forbes
Candice Accola as Caroline Forbes in The Vampire Diaries
     We all need that one friend who is always going to be honest, whether we want honesty or not. In The Vampire Diaries, Caroline Forbes has honest opinions down to an art form. After Caroline makes the transition from human to vampire as well as the transition from the insecure popular girl to badass independent woman, she becomes a person whose knowledgeable advise becomes an absolute asset in the story. Caroline cares deeply for the ones she loves and her outspoken nature is only to protect people from feeling the pain that she is so often use to feeling. Of all the characters in the show, Caroline is the one that is hurt and abused the most and that pain is what fuels her to be strong for those who aren't.

5. I wish had better development 

 Lana Lang (Smallville)
Kristen Kreuk as Lana Lang in Smallville
     Lana Lang is the girl that you envy and yet still want to be friends with. Despite her pretty face, Lana is lonely and searches for a purpose in her life. In the beginning of Smallville Lana is Clark's love interest and both of them go through an on-again/off-again relationship throughout their high school years. At that time, Lana was a fun and engaging character who came out of her shell and began to open up more to people. Then after high school, her character really began to stray. It's almost of if the writers didn't know what to do with her and so they kept on having her make these awful life choices that didn't seem to make sense for her practical character. Thankfully Lana's departure from the show (season 8) was well written, but I believe the writers could have given her more potential.

  2. Thanks for tagging me, Ivy! I'm definitely going to do it, though it may take a few days. :)

    I like your choices! Danielle is a great character. One of my favorite "Cinderellas" and probably my favorite role of Drew Barrymore's! And Morgana is awesome too. She was pretty neutral to me until she started turning villain, and then she really became such an interesting and complex character! I think I'm going to have fun with this. :)

    1. I'm working on mine right now, and the girl I picked for "want to be friends with" I chose because of her honesty too. I thought that was cool. :D

  3. Cool choices! I really love Morgana as well, her storyarc is fascinating and its so much fun to watch her character grow and change.
    And I love Storm! I've been a fan of hers since I used to watch the cartoon X-Men series in the 90s. I always felt like her character was overlooked (Jean Grey usually got the attention, hehe). Her powers are so awesome. ;)
