usetheforcelucius asked: 1, 6, 8, 9, 11, 24.
1: Already answered
6: Already answered
8: Shireen Baratheon hands down. I have a lot of Baratheon feels and Shireen is precious.
9: I really loved Sybil Crawley’s friendship with Gwen Dawson in Downton Abbey, and I wish they would’ve at least alluded to it after series 1 (and especially after the events of series 3).
11: Cora Crawley’s relationship with all of her daughters in Downton Abbey. I love that she supports them unconditionally, even when they do things she doesn’t entirely approve of. She only wants their happiness and is willing to go up against her husband for it, which I think is admirable.
24: I don’t know why but Les Miserables genderswaps are one of my favorite things, especially stories with female!Enjolras. I think it might be because Enjolras is already pretty androgynous to begin with, and I relate to him a lot in terms of gender/sexuality/political orientation/etc, so female!Enjolras gives me even more to relate to? And stories where different members of the ABC are gender-swapped are also super neat, because it’s interesting to think about how the dynamics of the group would change if one or more of the members were women.
jiggeryfpokery asked: 1, 6, 15, and 16 please!
YAY someone asked me something I never get asks lol.
1: I’ve always had a huge soft spot for Mary, Queen of Scots for some reason, probably because Antonia Fraser’s massive biography of her was one of the main books that first got me interested in history. I also think that Jiang Qing, Chairman Mao’s fourth wife, is fascinating; while I don’t sympathize with her political views or many of her actions, I think it’s interesting to learn about the role she played in shaping the Cultural Revolution.
6. Probably Circe from Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy, or Cersei Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones. I like that they’re both very complex women and aren’t simply depicted as being two-dimensional shrews out for power, which is a stereotype that a lot of female villains tend to fall into, unfortunately.
15. Almost all of the female characters I like are underrated lol…but out of all of them Catelyn Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire is the one I like the most.
16. Do vampires count as non-human? If so, then Genevieve Dieudonne from Kim Newmann’s Anno Dracula (which is an amazing fantasy book that I recommend to everyone) is definitely my favorite non-human female. If vampire still fall into the human category, then Romana from Doctor Who is my favorite non-human.
