Day fourteen: Favourite older female character

Minerva McGonagall 

This woman - this witch - is the most badass motherfucker in the entire wizarding world. She doesn’t need force to control her students, no, because they respect her, because she deserves respect. Which can be seen many times throughout the Harry Potter-series, like when Harry jumps out from under the invisibility cloak simply because she was disrespected. She’s incredible. And one of my favourite moments in the films is when she enchants the giant armored statues at Hogwarts and goes - with so much glee: “I always wanted to used that spell!” 

That’s McGonagall for you; so kind and caring and full of love, yet still so fucking badass and the bravest fighter with a wand.

Day 8 → Favorite Female Character in a Comedy Show

Lily Aldrin (How I Met Your Mother)

“Okay, yes, it’s a mistake. I know it’s a mistake. But there are certain things in life where you know it’s a mistake but you don’t really know it’s a mistake because the only way to really know it’s a mistake is to make the mistake, and look back, and say, ‘Yep. That was a mistake.’ So, really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake, because then you go your whole life not really knowing if something is a mistake or not.”

Kara Danvers (Supergirl)

“My name is Kara Zor-El. 24 years ago, my planet, Krypton, was in serious peril. My cousin, Kal-El, was sent to a planet called Earth for his own safety and protection. You may know his story. The story you don’t know is that I was sent to protect him.”

Quinn Fabray (Glee)

“Look, I know I went a little crazy, but I’m here now. I’m seventeen, I have the rest of my life in front of me. I love Glee Club. I love you girls. And when we’re 27 or 87, I want us to be able to look back on these next couple months… and talk about how it was the best times of our lives. We can’t do that if we’re not all together.”
