Please read my WHOLE description. I tell you who came close but didn’t win further down!
I had you all vote & decided to close this early since I think most people had voted anyway… and I didn’t want it to become harder to narrow down to about 10 characters. 😛 As it is now I am narrowing it down to 11 and not 10 lol.
139 characters total, from 31 different shows, were listed by a total of 79 commenters (if I counted correctly!) Wow!! Thank you, everyone, for all of your input!
I’m sorry I can only vid 11 of these for you. And I’m fairly excited to get started… although I have some trepidation too! 😛 I was going to do top 10 but it ended up being that 3 characters tied with 7 votes as the 9th, 10th, and 11th most popular so I just decided I’ll do little tributes to all 3! Okay?
I’m sorry I forgot to list Beauty & the Beast and also Castle as two other fandoms I could’ve vided so none of those characters got a chance to be counted. I’m not thrilled by the idea of making a character study vid for B&B quite yet anyway though since so few episodes have aired and well for Castle idk I have like no experience viding the show anyway, it’s a new fandom for me, whatever. I have excuses.
This is how the poll turned out:
Winning with the most number of votes:
Emma Swan (Once Upon a Time) – 15 people voted for her
In second place:
Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries) — 14 votes
Tying as #3 and #4, the third most popular characters:
Brooke Davis (One Tree Hill) & Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars) — both have 13 votes
Then coming in as #5, the fifth most popular character:
Peyton Sawyer – 11 votes
#6, #7, and #8 are all a tie:
Neal Caffrey (White Collar), Alexandra Udinov aka Alex (Nikita), & Haley James Scott (One Tree Hill) – 8 votes
And lastly we have in #9, #10, and #11 another tie:
Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls), Quinn Fabray (Glee), Serena Van der Woodsen (Gossip Girl) – 7 votes
It was really close… and you can now see just how close it was.
I’ll talk more about these winning 11 characters in my actual videos I make for each of them. I’ll try to make them in order too, with #s 9, 10, and 11 being made first and #1 being made last. But FYI, I did already make Lorelai, Quinn, Veronica, and Peyton character vids at some point:
Lorelai Gilmore – She’s a Genius
Quinn Fabray – [“Slow Down” by The Academy Is…] dedicated to Ele, Bia, Cara, Ciara, & Aubrey!
Veronica Mars (character) – a funny scenes compilation (“Funny Little Feeling”)
Peyton Sawyer — Lump
And of course relatively recently I made a triple character study of all 3 winning OTH girls:
Peyton — Haley — Brooke – [“Never Let Me Go” by Florence + The Machine]
I’d *really* appreciate some comments on these vids of mine! 😉
And if you’re curious, these are the ones that came relatively close, but didn’t make it to the top 11.
The closest to making it in were these 7 characters who all tied as runner ups who received 6 votes:
Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls), Chuck Bartowski (Chuck), Nathan Scott (One Tree Hill), Seth (The O.C), Chuck Bass (Gossip Girl), Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl), Red/Ruby (Once Upon a Time)
And these characters all got 5 votes:
Katherine Pierce/Katerina Petrova, Stefan Salvatore (TVD), Gregory House (House M.D.), Lux (Life Unexpected), Alex Karev, and Meredith Grey (Grey’s Anatomy).
I actually have made character study videos for Katherine & Lux before if you want to see them:
Katherine Pierce – “You’re hell on wheels in a black dress.”
Lux Cassidy (Life Unexpected) – [“Firework” by Ahmir] – collab with ClassicallyCoolProdz! 😉
And these characters all got 4 votes:
Michael Scofield, Sara Tancredi (Prison Break), Nikita (Nikita), Quinn James (OTH), Ryan Atwood (The O.C.), Auggie (Covert Affairs), Tim Riggins (FNL), Logan Echolls (Veronica Mars), Jenny (Gossip Girl), Caroline Forbes (TVD), Blaine, and Santana (Glee)
Etc. There were ones with 3, 2, etc votes too.
I’ve actually made a Caroline vid & a Logan vid before:
Caroline Forbes – [“Bent” by Matchbox Twenty]
Logan Echolls – [“Echo” by Jason Walker]
And I’m working on a Michael Scofield character study as a collab with emzielouisesun. 😀 So you should be able to see that on my luvtheheavenFOX4 channel sometime soon-ish.
Oh and if anyone is still reading this, I’d really love some readers of my fanfiction! I plan to write and post a Friday Night Lights fic to my fanfiction.net account sometime very soon, and I just today posted chapter 15 of my ongoing Quinn Fabray season 1-centric Glee fic:
