Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments Top 10: Hero/ines
They can be from any fantasy sub-genre (PNR, UF, Dark UF, Epic, Sci-Fi, SFR, etc)

This will be another hard one for me. I'll have to really think about my list before I post.

So, which are your 10 favorites? You can list 5 for each or 10 for each or split the 10 anyway you'd like.

Josie | 1967 comments Oh, what a question! Okay from the top of my head (I'll probably do a proper list later after everyone's put some down - don't want to miss anyone!), heroines I'd say:
Cassie Palmer, Mercy Thompson, Dory Basarab, Cat, Katniss, Kate Daniels, Rose Hathaway, the girl from Hex Hall, Jaz Parks, Anna from A&O, Downside Ghosts girl (why can't I remember her name? my mind has gone blank, but she's on the list even though she's a druggie, she's still awesome), Raine Benares (only read one book but she seems cool) and Joanne from Weather Wardens (ditto).

And heroes? I'm not sure how long this will get:
Bones, Pritkin, Louis-Cesare, Mircea Basarab, Adam Hauptman, Curran, Dimitri blahsjdnak, Charles, all the BDB (well I wouldn't want to leave anyone out now would I?), Terrible, Barrons, Harry Potter (although not for sexual reasons), Vayl, and Jamie Fraser (even though right now I'm not that happy with him).

I think I'll neaten that list up a bit later and find out their names and put a link where they're from :)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments LOL Josie "Dimitri blahsjdnak" which Dimitri would that be? Lord, but authors do love that name! ;)

Same for you, Mariya, just spotted one on your list too.


message 5: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Dimitri from Vampire Academy lol. Is there important ::read amaxingly hot:: Dimitri's that I'm missing??


message 6: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments I figured he was the D you were referring to, and Mariya too most likely, but had to ask. The only other D I've really liked was in Caitlin Kittredge's Nocturne City series. He was a shifter (wolf) though. ;)


message 7: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Oooh, I'm going to have to check him out! For list purposes obviously ;) Haven't got round to that series yet but will bump it up!

message 25: by Literary Ames (new)

Literary Ames (amyorames) | 1854 comments I know, I couldn't believe no one had listed him!


message 26: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments I would'a, but I have a tendency to fall for those I'm reading or have recently read. I try to remember my all-times, but it always ends up that way for me.

I also really like Anna, Miki & Jenny. :D

message 30: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments Hi, Akaria! Love the list. :)


message 31: by Kerstin (new)

Kerstin | 862 comments Oh no, how could I forget Clay and the hot Guild Hunter angels?! *hangs head in shame*


message 32: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments I know, me too. So many hottie heroes out there ... too many for a 10-list.


message 33: by Kerstin (new)

Kerstin | 862 comments So true, Steph. And with nearly every book there is another hottie emerging.


message 34: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments Right?! That's why my list is ever changing. I seem to quite the hero slut, always fallin' for the dudes I'm currently reading about. But, you're right, Clay and some others should be firm members of my Top10 list(s) and just .... forgot. Because their writers have starved us of them for too long! LOL! Yeah, it's all their fault. hehe


message 35: by Kerstin (new)

Kerstin | 862 comments Lol, I hear you, I'm quite the hero ho' myself ;). I probably should start a spreadsheet to keep track of all of them, lol.
But you're right, it is all the writers fault for not giving us enough of our faves lol.


message 36: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28446 comments Don't say spreadsheet! I have SO many right now and would be liable to create another one "Hot Hunky Heroes" LOL! ;)


message 37: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments And you know you probably will now that you've got the idea buzzin around your head!

Well, I cannot decide on just ten...ten of one and ten of the other is probably doable...but ONLY ten...Judithe throws up her hands in despair and slinks off again.


message 38: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments I love these types of lists because I see names I haven't seen in a while as well as names I've never heard of.
For example, Lucien from LOTU! I love Lucy!! I think I need to hold the book tonight when I get home.

Then there's the other side I was talking about. The side that has no idea who some of the people on the lists are.
For example, Adam Hauptman. Who?
I'll go look him up...


message 39: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments :O

...

Adam Hauptman?? He is only the sexiest most amazing alpha werewolf ever to grace the pages of a book! From Mercy Thompson series. Go! Quick, go meet him!!
Although I haven't met this 'Lucian' you speak of, so I will go and introduce myself to him ;)

And lol @ "need to hold the book"


message 40: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments I looked Mr. Hauptman up. We exchanged numbers and are going for coffee soon. ;)

Anyway, I realized I've had him on my bookshelves for a while. And not only that, I think I had a premonition of an introduction, aka drool-fest, for later this year because the series is on my "Better Late Than Never" reading list.

LOL! Stop it or I will. J/K :)

You can make a 10/10 if you wanna. Why not? Then, I can add some of my missin' studs too. hehe

LOL @ Kimberly & Josie! :D


message 42: by Kerstin (new)

Kerstin | 862 comments Lol Steph, sorry for giving you ideas!
