Day #2: Your favourite character
Curse you, meme, for making me choose! But I appreciate that you also include categories for hero and heroine so I can openly cheat the system and filter out some of my answers.

Lady Elizabeth Grey / Queen Elizabeth from 3 Henry VI and Richard III - First of all, this is not by any means a dig at Margaret. I adore Margaret from the bottom of my heart. But Elizabeth's quieter form of resistance and her strength in the face of losing practically every person she's ever loved and the fact that she OUTSMARTS RICHARD III give her the edge in my mind. Also, the fact that does does get outmaneuvered sometimes but that doesn't stop her. She's not a nice person, not by a long shot. But she gets things done. And I have to give credit where it's due.

Also, I want to play her. SO BADLY. But not as badly as I want to direct Richard III.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] angevin2 linked me to this wonderful post about the miscontextualization of the quote 'Well-behaved women rarely make history.' I do find it's extremely relevant to Elizabeth, who is often negatively compared to Margaret because her presence isn't as clearly delineated.
