    6. Aragorn - 3rd Vote
    7. Kaylee - 3rd Vote

    looks like we only need 8 more heroes before we hit 50, yay!
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    ... Green for anyone who votes Kosh!! (or Sisko... or Jeffrey Sinclair for that matter.) Also, more than willing to take it out in trade. (vote for votes, just to clarify.)

    I've got 5 votes burning holes in my pockets...

    Inigo's already through.

    8. Eowyn (Lord of the Rings)

    There's no one else on the list that I want to push through and I suppose it's too late to add more. *sigh* But I will anyway....

    9. Paul Atriedes (Dune)
    10. Vincent (Beauty and the Beast)

    Is it just me, or does it seem like it's the same six or seven shows that get the bulk of the nominations in these tourneys. It's a little frustrating and a bit myopic. It would be nice to see a wider variety--perhaps from older shows, or movies or TV shows that don't have quite the cult following, but are just as good. Just my opinion....

    I am so blessed! Cherriey made this cool sig; scarimor made this great Dr. Lee smilie http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f3...or/leeanim.gif and Spudster made another neat one http://img452.imageshack.us/img452/3658/lee1ec.gif Dr. Lee RULES!

    I totally agree, but I just can't think of anyone. I know when we get about a week into this I'm suddenly going to remember all the great heroes I loved when I was a kid. Oh well, my aging brain and I will just have to deal with it.

    I'm going to have to agree with KMiller on this one. That may make him a good guy or a semi-romantic, or honest, but that doesn't make him a hero.

    Definition of "hero"

    American Heritage Dictionary

    1. In mythology and legend, a man, often of divine ancestry, who is endowed with great courage and strength, celebrated for his bold exploits, and favored by the gods.
    2. A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life: soldiers and nurses who were heroes in an unpopular war.
    3. A person noted for special achievement in a particular field: the heroes of medicine.
    The reason I put my quote of Spike's recitted poem in 'Not Fade Away' is that was the last poem William aka Spike wrote before he's turned into a Vampire, and that's also the poem he recite on his (what he believe of) last night as a Vampire (with a soul).
    It's actually a journey for him, from a nobody, to a ruthless villain without remorse, to a vampire with a nagging consciense.
    To quote your AHD description, Spike knows that Angel has ask everyone of them a next to impossible tasks, to kill their enemy that is so strong & evil with no real hope to get out alive, it's practically an impossible mission but they have to do it because nobody else would do it (or even know about it), so it is an unpopular war.
    That is the reason for me to nominate all Angel's friends as heroes, I would put Gunn/Lorne too but Gunn did really bad on Fred/Illyria thing & Lorne left at the end, so less hero-ism for them.

    My 10th nomination :

    River Tam (Firefly/Serenity, 'I ate a bug' , I would quote what she said to Simon before she went out to fight, but I don't know the real words )

    It's a joke. My way of deflecting attention from my own obvious heroism. You'll get used to it.

    Thanks to Gate Girl and CatGoddess for the Kosh votes. Also, thanks to Lonestar and RealmOfX for the Sisko and Sinclair votes respectively. Much appreciated.

    ETA: Is there still one more update and chance to vote or is this the final chance?
