Modesty Blaise

Awesome Women Meme

Ten fictional women who I think are awesome.

(Meme gacked from sp23, who gacked it from shipperx, who gacked it from sdwolfpup)

01) Modesty Blaise
02) Sister Fidelma (heroine of a series of historical detective novels by Peter Tremayne)
03) Machiko Noguchi a.k.a. Da’dtou-di ( Prey, Hunters’ Planet, & War by Steve and Stephani Perry)
04) Amanda Garrett (Choosers of the Slain, Stormdragon, Sea Fighter, & Target Lock by James Cobb)
05) Niles Etland (The Demon Breed, by James H Schmitz)
06) Charity Selborne (Madam, Will You Talk? by Mary Stewart)
07) Hu San-niang (The Water Margin)
08) Emma Peel (The Avengers)
09) Viconia DeVir (Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn, & Baldur’s Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal)

Narrowly missing out were Jaheira, Ellen Ripley, Vi the Vampire Slayer, Ilona Costa Bianchi, Eowyn, Tara, several Mary Stewart heroines from other books, and Beatrice (Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing). Buffy disqualified herself in an alley leading to the police station.
