Hi, everyone! Many of you here took part in the Season Two Favorites survey, which concluded roughly three months ago. Among many, only three characters and scenes reached the podium, while only one was declared the victor (for each section). The experiment was fun, and it will return next year after the conclusion of Season 3.
Now, how about a similar survey for the novels? Tell me here the best 50 (maximum) scenes and characters that appear between novels one (Leviathan Wakes) and six (Babylon's Ashes) that you think would deserve to compete against each other for the title of the best scene/character in the whole written series so far. Entries will be displayed below and will close when the number fifty is reached or when no more appropriate entries are possible.
