I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Perspective of a Writer to share our love of great characters. Each week, Dani will assign a topic/type of character that we must find examples of in the various media we consume (books, TV shows, movies, comics, podcasts, etc.).
August 2nd topic:
(Literally a character who is drop dead gorgeous and from a supernatural race or, less literally, a sexually diverse character who is a hottie…)
I don’t know if Sawyer is supernatural; I’ve always thought of him as mortal. But since this category calls for the supernatural, I decided to go with a story about that that features a hottie, hence SAWYER SILVER! 😀 Isn’t he gorg?!
Sawyer Silver is a character from the Rat Queens comics, a fantasy series about female mercenaries. He’s the boyfriend (I think) of one of tthe characters. Rat Queens is a fun story that I enjoyed reading. So far, I’ve made it through volumes 1 and 2. I’ve always planned to continue with it, but have yet to do so.
August 9th topic:
(A super smart character! Could be clever, sly, book smart, manipulative, if they apply their brain power, it counts.)
How about a whole team of them?
Definitely the team of FBI profilers from the Criminal Minds TV series. I love watching them work on a case and formulate their profile of the criminals.
August 16th topic:
Creature you’d want to adopt
(An animal or creature character you’d want as a companion)
an artist wasp
A wasp that creates artistic masterpieces but paralyzes you while it dramatically dies if you don’t praise its work. Lol!! I love it! The artistic wasp appears in Nnedi Okorafor’s Akata Witch, a YA fantasy novel set in Nigeria about an albino girl who learns she has magical powers.
