Top Ten Characters I'd Name a Cat After

Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is Ten Characters I'd Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car etc After. I'll be using characters from a combination of books, films, and TV shows this week (some of the books have screen adaptations, so that's the version I've taken the images from). I don't want kids, I'm not a dog person, and I would forget to name my car, so I'm going with cats.
1. Kili (The Hobbit)

2. Galadriel (Lord of the Rings)

3. Gandalf (Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit)

4. Xena (Xena: Warrior Princess)

5. Hector (The Iliad)

6. Inara Serra (Firefly)

7. Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)

8. Saxa (Spartacus)

9. Napoleon Bonaparte (War and Peace)

10. Toshiko Sato (Torchwood)

What do you think of these characters? Who would you name a cat after? What characters would you name a car, a child, or a dog after?

Top Ten Villains on TV

Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is All About the Villains. I decided to do my ten favourite villains on TV, since I don't tend to like villains in books, but I sometimes do on television.

Lucretia (Spartacus)

She has a great character arc and is truly the best villain ever, because she's a good villain who is written and portrayed excellently.

Ilithyia (Spartacus)

She's a very funny villain, without meaning to be. She just speaks her mind without knowing she's being rude. Ilithyia is a bitch.


Crassus (Spartacus)

He's just as smart as our protagonist Spartacus, and respects his enemy.


Caesar (Spartacus)

Damn you, you sneaky, smart, strong good-looking bastard.


Callisto (Xena)

Undefeatable crazy evil blonde bitch with a weird obsession with Xena.


Alti (Xena)

Undefeatable crazy evil brunette bitch with a weird obsession with Xena. Only even more undefeatable.

 Moriarty (Sherlock)

Evil genius. I shivered/shuddered just finding a picture.


 "Captain John Hart" (Torchwood)

He's a bad person... But he's got some good qualities... Never mind, no he doesn't... Hang on, maybe he does...
Tbh it's the jacket I like the most.


Missy (Doctor Who)

The funniest serious villain to ever... villain. Missy is very very Weird.

Bonnie (Doctor Who)

There's something sexy and scary about her at the same time. It's disconcerting.

Who are your favourite TV villains? Do you agree with this list? Who would you put at #1?
