Top 5 female characters of 2010
#1. Cara Mason (Legend of the Seeker)
TV!Cara (Tabrett Bethell) is a mix of the Cara, Berdine and Raina in the books from the Sword of Truth series. Book!Cara is more carefree and easy going, not as serious and dark as the Cara that Tapert and Raimi showed us in the fantasy tv series. Cara was kidnapped when she was a little girl to become Mord’Sith, for only the purest of girls make the best ones, and they tortured her and starved her and made her kill her father; they broke her. She was trained to believe that any kind of emotion was not acceptable, that it was a sign of weakness and that she would die in battle, serving the Lord Rahl, since she was the steel against the steel. However, she’s kicked out of the sisterhood, beaten and left to die, only to find a home with the Seeker and his companions. Cara is the broken girl who smiles in the snow, who stares in wonder at fairies… And she’s also the fierce woman who’ll fight to death if asked to, the stoic warrior that will laugh on your face when you chain her up and beat her to an inch of her life. Cara is badass. Cara is strenght, and honor, and a stormy cloud waiting to break out. Cara is raw sex and power. Cara is awesome. Thank you Tabrett for making Cara such a wonderful character that I will forever count among my favorite ones.
Holding hands may seem like an innocent gesture, but they show more than a simple interlocking of fingers. Your hands are one of the most essential parts of your body: you build with them, feed with them, hold with them, touch with them, fight with them; they are the tools of the human body. To take a hold of another’s hand is to break from living individually. It is to link yourself to another being, to momentarily entwine your life with another’s, to promise, for a moment, that you need not face the world alone. More simple, more aesthetically naive than other forms of affection, i.e kissing, hugging, sexing.., the act of holding hands is often trivialized in its true implications.
That moment when Elinor finds out that Edward is not married and she’s so happy that she freaks the fuck out.
