    This week's contest is devoted to characters who have come back from the dead--either figuratively or literally. They may have come back from the dead, their corpse has re-animated, they were thought to be dead or it seemed certain they were dead but, *surprise*, they're back.

    All the votes, they cannot sever us.
    If my alternatives were dead and you were still fighting for your life, they'd come back from the darkness. Back from the pit of hell to fight at your side.

    I died, but I knew I still had work to do, so I came back and voted.

    My votes were brought back by a convenient, but ultimately unbelievable, plot device.

    Actually had some alternates this time:

    Sharon Valerii, Battlestar Galactica

    I'm going to spoiler-code this one, just so I don't inadvertently ruin it for anyone:

    [​IMG]
    Viserion, Game of Thrones

    And you could have almost filled this contest entirely with Trek references, especially the Original Series, which used this trope often. But if I had to pick just one, I would pick the true hero of the Original Series, the central character of the show, who was the foundation of the Enterprise crew, always there through thick and thin, binding the crew through camaraderie into a single, cohesive unit.

    I refer, of course, to Mr. Leslie.

    Died from having every red blood corpuscle drained from his body. Body said, "**** that noise", made more. Showed up for his duty shift the very next day... 15 minutes early.

    This is not meant as a criticism, but rather is just an honest question brought up by the inclusion of Yoda & co. Would being a ghost count as coming back to life?

    I actually hadn't thought that much about it. @auntiehill specified not being dead anymore in her original post, so maybe there's a loophole about them not being alive again, but merely not dead?! I'm no expert, do ghosts qualify as undead? On the other hand, auntie went on to qualify the zombies from The Walking Dead, who are not undead, but actually dead. But also living. Living dead. Also, one of auntie's examples was Starbuck from NuBSG, who just disappears at the very end, so was she a ghost? Brian from Family Guy was saved via time travel, so was he ever dead at all? Dammit, this is more complicated than I thought.

    Meh. If anyone had entered it, I probably would've been OK with it.

    I couldn't think of a clever one-liner before, but I came back now to say I'd voted.

    Thanks for the votes, folks. Though I was hoping the Vulcan Death Grip would win. ;) :D

    I'll get a new contest started Sunday.
