Favorite female character in a scifi/supernatural show:
Kaywinnit Lee Frye
GAH! The abstract concept of adorable finds human form in Kaylee Frye. Kaylee Frye is one of my favorite characters because she does things, she’s warm and she is unabashed about what she enjoys. I love combat oriented ladies, Èowyn from Lord of the Rings was a major defining figure in my childhood. That said, in fiction, especially genre work and especially in television women are forced into a false dichotemy of ballbusting warrior-babes or sweet pretty young things. Said sweet, pretty, young things have a tendency to either get captured or become sources of emotional support. Firefly avoids this pitfall with Kaylee. Yes she loves ruffles, boys and strawberries but she’s also a competent mechanic, comfortable calling her captain out on his bullshit (Serenity), flirts with alacrity, and prepared to fight when she has no other option.
I also love how she gets recruited:
