"Name your ten favorite characters from movies or television series."
So, that's the tag I saw on Tumblr (shocking, I know), and I really liked it. However, I'm going to modify it a bit and do literary characters. I'm also going to split it into two lists, one for female protagonists and one for male. Because really, I need all the spots I can get!
