What makes someone the “greatest fictional character of all time”?
We asked voters to consider the following factors: What characters are eligible?
My fangirling knows no bounds, and I find myself going through the emotional spectrum with the characters I grow to love. At the end of season three, Dean is literally being dragged to Hell.
In the very first episode of season four, I was faced with the slightly alarming realization that I actually understood how Dean Winchester felt.
He has no idea how he’s alive and spends most of the episode trying to figure out what yanked him out of Hell. When Cas tells Dean that he’s the one who pulled him out of Hell, Dean is understandably disbelieving.
He eventually gives in, and all he wants to know is Why him? Castiel looks at Dean, this man he rescued from Hell and put back together again, and says, “You don’t think you deserve to be saved.” The way Cas looks at him when he realizes that’s Dean Winchester. Dean doesn’t see himself the way Sam or Cas or even I see him, and that’s the kicker: I don’t see myself how anyone else sees me either.He is severely into toy collecting, plays a worryingly large amount of games, watches way too many movies and TV shows, and reads more than his fair share of books and comics. here are the options i've narrowed down to, which sounds like the best essay? A: wants to go back to school, not smart but really wants to learn, fashion loving, loyal and friendly, easily makes friends, pretty emotional, a little bit of a short temper, very dedicated to personal improvement B: a leader, very caring and empathetic, super strong set of morals and sense of personal responsibility, will finish something no matter what, independent, a little gullible C: mood maker, silly, cheerful and good with cheering up others, a planner, a bit ditzy, very mentally resilient, wants to help friends, never backs down from a challenge even if it’s not well thought out D: loves fashion, color, femininity, but also very ambitious, smart and determined and does both without compromise, friendly and open, can acknowledge past mistakes, can adapt well E: trust in others, likes to teach, values tradition, will go out of way for a friend, silly and carefree, flamboyant, strong personal morals, can be realistic and bluntlmao I'm applying to OSU Honors as well.I’ve spent most of my life relating to fictional characters, and I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember.It happens with everything from books to TV shows, from movies to musicals. I get so involved that I’m usually not even aware I’m doing it until I’m curled up in giddiness or distress and hear my boyfriend say, “I can all the way over here.” I could write an essay on how many characters I’ve related to over the years, but today I’m going to focus on just two of them: Sam and Dean Winchester from the TV show “Supernatural.” For the uninitiated, “Supernatural” is a show about Sam and Dean Winchester, brothers who travel across the country and hunt monsters.He relays this information to Sam, who replies with—and it still pains me to think about this as I type it—“So?” Like Dean, Sam can only see all the bad he’s done.Voting is now closed, and we’ve crunched the numbers.Starting on September 21, we began posting the results as a countdown from 100.Any fictional character in existence is eligible for this list.We’re rolling all media into one for this one: comic books, TV, movies, video games, books, mythology, everything!
