Happy Thanksgiving!

For Thanksgiving I have compiled a list of TEN fictional girlfriends who are coming to our humble abode for Thanksgiving. Poor Rick! He’s going to be surrounded by women. 🙂 “Ahem.” I’m making the turkey and stuffing and they are each bringing the side dish of their own choosing. It should be interesting. These great gals are listed alphabetically by their fictional first name.

Alex Danvers from the TV series, “Supergirl.” Alex, played by Chyler Leigh had big responsibility placed on her shoulders early in life. She’s tough although not so tough. I like her!

Cynthia Kavanagh of the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. What’s not to love? This lady is creative and so full of love. She has an innocent/childlike quality and a strong faith.

Emma Woodhouse played by Romola Garai from “Emma” by Jane Austen. I have not read all of her books but, Emma right now is my favorite book by Jane Austen. This lovely lady will definitely bring sparkle to the Thanksgiving table!

Eowyn played by Miranda Otto, from “The Two Towers” and “The Return of the King” by J.R.R. Tolkien. I love this character. She’s tough and full of courage, yet vulnerable. She loves her people. I am eager to know what side dish she will bring to the Thanksgiving meal! 🙂

Jo March played by Winona Ryder from “Little Women.” Good strong but flawed female character from a great family. Do you remember the cake with the powdered sugar sprinkled on it from the movie? I hope she brings that cake to the meal!

Jules from “The Intern.” I love Jules, played by Anne Hathaway. I connected with this character in so many ways. And, her daughter is more than welcome to join us.

Kara Danvers the amazing “Supergirl!” She flies into danger, eager to help  always giving the villain an opportunity to change for the better. This character is played by Melissa Benoist.

Lucy Pevensie from “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis. This strong female lady is played by Georgie Henley.

Raleigh Harmon of the “Raleigh Harmon Series” by Sibella Giorello. Good strong woman from a troubled home. I really like this character. She needs to have a weekly TV series!

Tuppence Beresford from the Agatha Christie mysteries, “Tommy and Tuppence.” These two have such fun together, but Tommy has to stay home. Sorry Tommy, this is a fictional girl Thanksgiving. Maybe Rick can join him for some guy fun!

There it is! My list of fictional female characters who are making the journey to my home for Thanksgiving. I’d love to hear from you. Who are your favorite female ladies of fictional? Have a great Thanksgiving! 🙂

  1. Emma, Eowyn, and Jo would all be on my list, too. I’d also invite Nancy Drew, Tonks (from Harry Potter), Irene (from the Princess and the Goblin), Esther (from Bleak House), and Lucie (from A Tale of Two Cities).

  2. Ohmygosh! What a wonderful group of ladies! Emma, Kara, Jo, Tuppence, Jules and of course, Lucy are among my most favorite female fictional characters. Great group, Katie. 🙂
