Mosca Mye (Fly By Night) [link]

Rae Seddon (Sunshine) [link]

Bottom, Left to Right:

Amalthea (The Last Unicorn) [link]

Ariadne (Inception) [link](film)

Gemma Doyle (Gemma Doyle Trilogy) [link]

Elizabeth Bennet (Pride & Prejudice) [link]

So... yeah.

... I kind of wish I didn't have to draw attention to my inclusion of Bella but I keep getting these pissy, irritating notes about her appearance here about how she's not a real heroine and her role in literature and film is sending us back to the forties blah blah. If I didn't think she was worthy of being on here, then she wouldn't be. That is all I want to say. On the subject of Bella at least, I am not interested in anyone's negative opinions. There are plenty of them out there already.

I am only familiar with a few of these and you captured them all so well. Now I want to read about the ones that I am unfamiliar with! Thank you for the wonderful work and the origins of the characters! :)
