I don't take orders. I do things my way

First: I'm going to fucking kill anybody who says that Arwen "stole" other characters' scenes  or their time. Seriously, I don't mind if you stop talking to me after I've written this, but I'm sick of all that nonsense and I hope they go to hell. I'm really pissed off by all this "she stole time from other characters" crap. DO I NEED TO REMIND THEM ALL THE SCENES WHICH DIDN'T EXIST IN THE BOOK BUT WERE CREATED FOR THE FILM AND NOBODY COMPLAINS ABOUT? DO I REALLY HAVE TO TELL THEM HOW MANY SCENES WERE PLAYED BY DIFFERENT CHARACTERS THAN THOSE IN THE BOOK? SERIOUSLY? DO I REALLY HAVE TO DO IT? BECAUSE IF I HAVE TO, MAYBE YOU ARE NOT SUCH A BIG FAN OF LOTR. Or maybe you're just too narrow-minded.

I don't even know why I bother.  I've ranted about this many times before but I still don't get how a fictional character that doesn't exist can steal anything. Even if playing another character's part in the story can't be regarded as "stealing" ¬¬ And I'm sorry, I tend to get a little carried away with this.


OK, moving on: I wanted to start the 30 days of female awesome meme so, you know, I have another reason to write.

Day One: Favourite lead female character



Buffy

She's the first one that came to my mind when I thought of this question. I followed her adventures from season 1, every summer, and I cried a lot when she died in the season 5 finale. Not only she was strong physically speaking, but she also had inner strenght and skills to lead the group. She was really a true heroine.

I have to say it: thank you, Joss Whedon!
