my top 25 favorite television characters

honorable mentions

spike; buffy the vampire slayer // mohinder suresh; heroes
mickey smith; doctor who // joey ice cream; the black donnellys

25. olivia dunham; fringe

I just want to go back to before.

24. desmond hume, lost

See you in another life, brotha.

23. gabriel "sylar" grey

Luke: Wow. So you're, like, a serial killer.
Sylar: I'm not a serial killer.
Luke : But you've got a pattern. You go after specific victims. You collect mementos.
Sylar: Okay, so, technically I'm a serial killer.

22. charlie pace; lost

Charlie: First plane crash?
Claire: How could you tell?
Charlie: I can always spot the newbies.

21. rose tyler; doctor who

Planet Earth. This is where I was born. And this is where I died. For the first nineteen years of my life nothing happened. Nothing at all. Not ever. And then I met a man called The Doctor. A man who could change his face. And he took me away from home in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space. I thought it would never end. That's what I thought. But then came the Army of Ghosts, then came Torchwood and the war. And that's when it all ended. This is the story of how I died.

20. emerson cod; pushing daisies

Well, who died instead?
Ned: It's a random proximity thing.
Emerson: Bitch, I was in proximity!

19. daniel faraday; lost

The light... it's strange out here, isn't it? It's kind of like, it doesn't, it doesn't scatter quite right.

18. castiel; supernatural

I'm the one that gripped you tight and raised from Perdition.

17. ruby; supernatural

Who do I have to kill to get some french fries around here?

16. morgana le fey; merlin

What if magic isn't something you choose? What if it chooses you?

15. ianto jones; torchwood

Mobiles, landlines, tin cans with bits of string, everything, absolutely everything: no phones, phones all broken. [holds up hand in imitation of telephone] Hello? Anyone there? No! 'Cause the phones aren't working!

14. sam winchester; supernatural

Sam: I don't know, Dean, I just... I wanted to believe, so badly. It's so damn hard to do this, what we do. All alone, you know? There's so much evil out there in the world, Dean, I feel like I could drown in it. And when I think about my destiny, when I think about how I could end up...
Dean: Yeah, well, don't worry about that, alright? I'm watching out for you.
Sam: Yeah, I know you are. But you're just one person, Dean. And I needed to think that there was something else watching too, you know? Some higher power. Some greater good. And that maybe...
Dean: Maybe what?
Sam: Maybe I could be saved.

13. lex luthor; smallville

Lex: You know, I've been thinking a lot about this prophecy. I've got a new interpretation. Want to hear it?
Clark: Sure.
Lex: This Naman guy is supposed to come from the stars, have the power of ten men, and shoot fire from his eyes, right?
Clark: It's just an allegory, Lex.
Lex: I know. But if one person could do all that, he would be a formidable enemy. He could conquer the world. He could become a tyrant if nobody kept him in check. So I've been thinking. Anybody who'd be willing to fight him would have to be pretty brave. Clark, did it ever occur to you that maybe the hero of the story... is Segeeth?

12. lionel luthor; smallville

Your secret is safe with me, Kal-El.

11. chuck bartowski; chuck

Me? Why me? I'm nobody. I'm the supervisor of a Nerd Herd, at a Buy More. Maybe someday I'll be assistant manager. but I don't even know if I want that job.

10. ned the piemaker; pushing daisies

Everything we do is a choice. Oatmeal or cereal, highway or sidestreets, kiss her or keep her. We make choices, and we live with consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way, we ask for forgiveness, it's the best anyone can do.

09. lois lane; smallville

Lois: I've given up smoking. These are the only things that get me through the day. I started when I was fifteen. It's my father's fault, he said if he ever caught me smoking, he'd kill me, so, in a fit of teenage rebellion, I started, then I couldn't stop.
Clark: You talk a lot.
Lois: Yeah, well, I'm just not very comfortable with uncomfortable silences and you're not exactly keeping up your end of the conversation.

08. dean winchester; supernatural

Dean: I'm amazing. I'm Batman!
Sam: Yeah, you're Batman.

07. oliver queen/the green arrow; smallville

Oliver: Luthorcorp is starting up 33.1 facilities all across the globe. Wherever there's evidence of people with abilities, there'll be laboratories to do experiments on them.
Clark: We can't let that happen.
Oliver: We won't. Gentlemen, our first target is a large facility on the Island of Corto Maltese. You guys know the drill. Wheels up in thirty minutes, get your gear. [...] This isn't the end of the story, Clark. This is just the beginning. [nods to Chloe] Chloe. Come on boys, let's go save the world.

06. arthur pendragon; merlin

Arthur: My father has warned me about sorcerers like him, they will not rest until our kingdom is destroyed.
Merlin: Well I believe he's telling the truth.
Arthur: Then you're a fool! You cannot trust a single word a sorcerer says, you'd do well to remember that.

05. donna noble, doctor who

Donna: How about you, are you alright?
The Doctor: Oh, I'm always alright.
Donna: Is "alright" special time-lord code for... not really all right at all?
The Doctor: Why?
Donna: Because I'm alright too.

04. the tenth doctor; doctor who

I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the Constellation of Kasterborous. I'm 903 years old and I'm the man who is gonna save your lives and all 6 billion people on the planet below. You got a problem with that?

03. clark kent; smallville

Jonathan: Clark, I know you're upset, son, but it's normal.
Clark: Normal? How about this? Is this normal? [thrusts his arm into the wood chipper, Jonathan runs over and pulls it out, Clark's arm isn't even scratched] I didn't dive in after Lex's car! It hit me at 60 miles an hour! Does that sound normal to you? I'd give anything to be normal.

02. merlin emrys, merlin

Nimueh: Come now, we are too valuable to each other to be enemies.
Merlin: No! I set nothing with you!
Nimueh: With my help, Arthur will become king.
Merlin: I will make Arthur king, but you will never see that day.

01. chloe sullivan, smallville

Clark: Chloe, I'm not going to let my secret destroy your life too.
Chloe: The night that I saw you catch that car with your bare hands, it changed my life for the better. Clark, thanks to you, I've actually made a impact on the world. I wouldn't trade that for anything.

This is such an awesome collection of characters! And a lovely, lovely picspam as well. SO PRETTY.

You know what I find most interesting about you? That your favourite ships so often don't involve your favourite character. Like, you like Morgana, but you ship Arthur/Gwen. And you like Chloe, but you ship Clois. It's rare to find that in fandom, and I find it quite refreshing. :)

I might actually do this myself some day. It looks like fun.

Thank you very much! ♥

Well, I just don't necessarily think my favorite character should get the hero, is all. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. But with Chloe, I just could never see her and Clark actually in a relationship. (And I ship Morgana with Merlin, so it's not like she's totally left out.)
