What kind of character could top Lee?

I dunno if this is the right place to ask about it, considering I'm brand new here, but has anyone written fanfiction for season 2 yet? I figure someone has to, here of all places at the very least. I'm thinking about doing one myself, to see if I can't answer the question everyone wants answered: What kind of character could top Lee?

I've already got a few ideas myself, and after looking around the threads a bit, it seems there are some fairly smart people thinking the same thing as me. But I'd like to actually know what people think would be able to beat Lee's character, and I'd especially like to read some fanfictions if there are any.

I, personally, think that the new main protagonist should be a young man. Young like Molly, maybe even a bit younger. That way we can establish an older brother-like character to be Clementine's new protector that people can be comfortable with and that won't replace Lee as a father figure (which is the worst possible idea).
I'm going to write a character like that, except instead of trying to emulate an instant attachment to Clem like Lee did, I want to try and write Lee's polar opposite. Colder and more withdrawn, effected by the world on a deeply emotional level (and maybe a slightly psychotic one, too :P). That way Clementine's role as a morality pet will shine even brighter and have more influence to her as a character and to her bond with the new protagonist, making the new protagonist easily more likable as he slowly grows more attached to Clem, gradually shifting his personality in the process thanks to her.
That's the kind of approach Telltale needs to take with a new protagonist. A much more different way to warm up to someone new after that devastating loss at the end of the last season. At least, that's what I'd like to see.

TL;DR, Telltale should make a bad-ass big brother protagonist for season 2. And NOT kill him. Avoiding repetition as much as possible is best.

Also, I'm not one to shamelessly plug myself, but like I said, whether Telltale already has a plan or not, I'm gonna write me a fanfic for season 2. Not that I'm asking if anyone is interested, but if anyone is...

And I shall leave it at that. :)

Anyways, tell me your thoughts!

    It ain’t going to happen. I could see Telltale being down with an older, smarter Clementine, but all sorts of continuity problems crop up. Remember, this series is based on the comic book series, which is ongoing. In the grand scheme of things, not that much time has passed in the comic book, so fast forwarding the universe means the game would be way out in front and Kirkman would need to worry about writing himself into corners annoying fans would attack him for.

  • If it's Kenny, i would SO love that.

    Kenny would have a reason to live, taking care of a little girl, and Kenny is a tough, heroic guy, he was also a father, he'd never let anything happen to Clem.

    Well, since plenty of people hate Kenny, making him the player character could lose TT some serious money. Heck, the guy was my bro, but even I wouldn't want to play as him. He's a good supporting character, but since he already has a set personality the thing that made Lee so great would be lost: the ability to make him the person you want himt o be.

  • I hope they don't try and recapture what they had with Lee and Clem in season 2 with a new character. It would never live up to it. And they may as well have kept Lee alive if that was the case.

    I don't want another season of being Clem's protector either.

  • No one could. Either have no season 2 or don't kill Lee. Idiots.

  • Lee was great, But we made him make his decisions, We will do the same with a new character. So it can be a great season 2 without Lee!

  • Hey new here, first post.

    People feel it will be hard to top Lee, but that is because Lee is all close to our hearts.

    An interesting character to play would be Lee's wife, think about it.

    I don't want to play Clementine, I don't want to control her decisions, I want her decisions to be made on how we influenced her in the first season. Playing her in the 2nd season would defeat the purpose of the 1st season.

    Only if you botch the QTE ;)

    My Lee was always on top after that first playthrough.
