Girls' night out with Buffy and Katniss. Hermione Grainger and Bella Swan complete the quartet.

Nice to see our girl still ranks up there with the awesome women. And Bella.

Bella is about the most anti-female power character ever created, I would nominate Lisbeth to be the fourth in this group (JMPO of course).
Buffy and Hermione ftw

Sidney Bristow or Lyra (from His Dark Materials) should have been in this instead of Bella.
As tired as I am of Twilight jokes, I like how very much in character all four of the girls were here.
One of these things is not like the others ....
This is waaaay nerdy but Hermione's timeline doesn't make sense. How can she have had a Quidditch match while being on the run from Voldemort?

Also, can we throw Bella off of a cliff?
I don't think Hermione would ever refer to Harry as 'Potter.'
Bella 'completes the quartet'? I'd say she's the first example of someone who somehow managed to be a fourth wheel.
I just read a brief article last night where critics are complaining that the actress (sorry - don't remember her name) playing Katniss is "too hefty." Wow.
"just want to use you as a sex object for their own confused, sadomasochistic love fantasies."
Projecting much?
Jennifer Lawrence. (I cannot forget since I have the same last name...).

Yes, there are articles about Lawrence being too curvy, and that many were shocked to see that Rue was- omg- played by an African American actress. Which was so unexpected since in the book she is described as having... dark skin... what a world we live in!

Well...if I understand the literary description of Katniss Everdeen right, then Jennifer Lawrence is a too healthy looking for someone who was basically consisting on a starvation diet until she became an archery marksman for hunting purposes a couple of years before the novels are set. Then again, Jennifer Lawrence is a good 5-7 years older than Katniss is supposed to be but...meh :D
