Which characters will be in the Top 10? A few weeks ago, we asked you to list your favorite characters from A Song of Ice and Fire. We've tallied up all the votes and we now know which character tops the list... But you don't expect us to reveal his or her identity without any fanfare, do you? As we did four years ago, we'll be counting down the best ASOIAF characters, with brand new profiles to explore and explain each one's popularity. Some of you have already been enlisted to help write these new profiles, but there are a few slots remaining. If you're interested in and available to write one profile for the upcoming countdown, please contact us. Be sure to include your email address and a list of the five characters that you would most like to profile. We can't guarantee that you'll get your top pick, but we'll make every attempt to assign you someone on your list.

As one additional twist to this exercise, we also invite everyone to submit a new list that answers this question: Who do you think will be in the Top 10? Remember, this isn't your personal list of favorites. Instead, it's your prediction of which characters have been collectively chosen by Tower of the Hand members as the Top 10. Fill out this form (members only; join here). We'll see how closely your predictions match the countdown. And, yes, the member whose list most resembles the actual Top 10 will win a prize. Thanks, and good luck!


Which characters are in your Top 20? Tyrion Lannister. Jon Snow. Arya Stark. When we last asked, those three characters were named by Tower of the Hand members as the top characters in all of A Song of Ice and Fire. But a lot has happened since then, namely A Dance with Dragons. The latest book challenged the popularity of some characters at the same time it introduced new favorites. Meanwhile, time (and perhaps absence) has likely made us grow fonder of some, even as it's led us to forget others. In other words, we don't expect the same names from years ago to comprise the list of top characters of today.

Let's find out. Consider all the characters from the first five books of the series-- major, minor, and everyone in between-- and try to identify, not just your favorite few, but your Top 20. Then fill out this form (members only; join here). You don't need to fill the entire list, but the order does matter. Make sure your absolute favorite characters are listed near the top. We have one additional restriction this time around: only characters who are alive at the start of A Game of Thrones (or those who are revealed to be alive in later books) should be considered for this list.

We'll reveal the cumulative results later this summer.
