100. Tracy Lord (The Philadelphia Story) - my favorite of all. ♥

And as I finished I immediately thought of about 5 more, but eh. another list, another time.

i think this list says that a) most of the female characters i love came to me through musicals and through my childhood (holy god I left VESPER HOLLY off this list may the god of sexiness smite me :( ). And that in fiction, I'm drawn to women who have strong bonds wtih each other. Also contented old maids. :D And women who rely on their brains and their senses of justice before resorting to male tropes like violence or aggression. And women who maybe are a little confused, like me, about who they are and who they want to be, but who are nonetheless awesome for daring to try to find out. <3
