I Heart Characters! #7: A Three in One Deal

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:

Super’natural’ hottie

(Literally a character who is drop dead gorgeous and from a supernatural race or, less literally, a sexually diverse character who is a hottie…)

Sawyer Silver

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 brainiac

(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.

Let me know which characters you would choose for these topics.

I Heart Characters! #4: Grumpy Second in Command

I’m interrupting tag week to bring you… >> I Heart Characters!, a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Perspective of a Writer to share our love of great characters. Each week Dani assigns a topic/type of character that we must find examples of in the various media we consume (books, TV shows, movies, comics, podcasts, etc.).

I bulk together the topics, so here are my last two for the month.

Last week’s topic:

A grump with a heart of gold

Characters with rude or disgruntled personalities deserve love too… especially if they thaw towards the MC, eventually.

Burrich and Akeha

Bulking the topics in a single post works best for me, so this post will include the first two topics for June.

Last week’s topic:

Wicked witch

A witch, or one who simply acts like one… a fantasy villain or a contemporary bully… if she’s b*tchy then she’s part of the group!

the white witch

For now, it seems that my timing will always be off for this meme. Maybe in June I’ll get back on track and post according to the dates Dani has listed. Since I missed last week’s topic (I was on vacation and didn’t post anything) and will most likely be busy next week, I’ve decided to complete all the topics for May in this post.

Starting with last week’s topic:

Shapeshifter idol

A shifter character whose abilities and life I’d love to lead…

an animagus

Warrior woman

I take this to mean a powerful female character so I choose:

Jane McKeene
