    SF&F isn't just for the guys! In addition to classic characters, we have seen a surge in recent years of women characters headlining new SF&F projects, inspiring new generations of girls and young women.

    In honour of IWD today, the theme for this week's contest will be The Women of Science Fiction & Fantasy. You may enter characters from movies, television, comics and video games. (Despite the thread title, this doesn't actually have to be set in the future.) Please don't repeat a character that someone else has entered, but it is OK to enter more than one character from the same franchise.

    Standard avatar contest rules apply: a maximum of 200 x 200 pixels, and a maximum file size of 1 MB. Your entry must be SFW. Each entrant may enter up to two entries. Please identify your character, and what movie/show/etc she is from. The contest will be open for about a week.

    Have fun! :techman:

    I'm not even supposed to be here today.
    You do realize I'm gonna need at least four posts for all the alternatives?! And that's just those from my archives.

    Only in hindsight do I realize a love-overcoming-death theme in my entries.

    Last call! I'm planning to put the poll up about 24 hours from now.

    I guess I should enter something too. How about a couple of Sarahs?
