Favorite Next Gen Character?

I have been thinking a lot about Next Gen lately. Not that it's ever far from my HP mind, but I think modding hp_nextgen_fest sort of reopened the feels floodgates. There are so many amazing prompts (and claiming is still open, btw) in so many different combinations that it sparked all sorts of headcanons and plot bunnies for me. I currently have seven Next Gen-centric WIPS/fleshed out fic & ficlet ideas for five different pairings. And that's not even counting Cross Gen....

Is it considered bad form to run a fest filled with mostly your own fic?

All this next gen fervor has made me really think about who my favorite Next Gen character is. I thought this would be pretty difficult to suss out, but it turns out, I feel pretty strongly that James Sirius Potter is my favorite character. I love him. I love his name, I love that we don't really know what he looks like so we can do whatever we want, I love his age difference with Teddy, I love that he's the oldest sibling, I love the little glimpse of his Gryffindor confidence that we get in the epilogue. I just, I really love him. <3

I'm also immensely fond of Albus Severus Potter and Teddy Lupin and Lily Luna Potter, really. The rest of the Next Gen characters I like, but I don't really love as much as these guys.

Those are my thoughts, but what are yours?! I made a fancy poll (since I really need to make more of those) asking that very question! You can only select one option, because I wanted to make your lives difficult. :D

[Sorry if this post is long on your feeds! Turns out, you can't actually put an LJ poll behind a cut...]
