“I wish we could sometimes love the characters in real life as we love the characters in romances. There are a great many human souls whom we should accept more kindly, and even appreciate more clearly, if we simply thought of them as people in a story.”― G.K. Chesterton
Character appreciation is the theme for Top 5 Tuesdays over at Meeghan Reads this whole month of September. Sadly, me being an airhead led me to miss the second Tuesday, so this’ll be the post that will make up for it. Here’s my post for A-E, while this post will cover F-J and K-O.
1 September: A – E
8 September: F – J
15 September: K – O
22 September: P – T
29 September: U – Z
The rules? We can do first name, last name, nicknames, whatever we want – that’s completely up to us!!
Feel free to join in on the fun by linking back to Meghan (preferably to one of her posts so she’ll be notified) and let’s get posting!
Here’s a list of awesome characters who you might or might not be familiar with. I was going to post a long description for each one but I think I’ll just share some of their quotes or tiny details about them so you can find out for yourself what they are really like when you read or watch about them.
“I was not prey any longer, I decided as I eased up to that door. And I was not a mouse. I was a wolf.”
GUY (MIGHT GUY)
“You have the gift of perseverance, and that’s what makes you a genius too!”
“Are you planning to follow a career in Magical Law, Miss Granger?” asked Scrimgeour.
“No, I’m not,” retorted Hermione. “I’m hoping to do some good in the world!”
“Honestly, don’t you two read?”
“Sometimes I do feel like I’m a failure. Like there’s no hope for me. But even so, I’m not gonna give up. Ever!”
JAE-HA (RYOKURYUU/GREEN DRAGON)
“Taking away someone’s freedom is the ugliest thing one can do in this world. People like that ought to decay into dirt and come back as thorny roses. Having my fate decided for me from the time I was born goes against my views of beauty!”
“A liar, a thief, and utterly without conscience. But he’ll keep to any deal you strike with him.”
“What doesn’t kill me better run.”
“If the face says nothing, listen to the heartbeat.”
“He’d learned his lesson a long time ago: Even in the midst of heartbreak, you could still find yourself laughing.”
“But the name Magnus Bane made him think of a towering sort of figure, with huge shoulders and formal purple warlock’s robes, calling down fire and lightning. Not Magnus himself, who was more of a cross between a panther and a demented elf.”
“The books we love, they love us back. And just as we mark our places in the pages, those pages leave their marks on us. I can see it in you, sure as I see it in me. You’re a daughter of the words. A girl with a story to tell.”
“You’ve got the look of a girl who’s no stranger to the page. I can tell. You’ve got words in your soul.”
“Apologies. I appear to have misplaced the fucks I give for what you think….”
“Don’t you dare give up on the shots I’ve worked so hard to receive!! I’m a libero! A vital part of our team’s formation!”
“Alright! There’s nothing to be scared of! You guys just keep looking straight ahead. I’ll guard your backs with my life if I have to!”
“A woman must always move with grace, whether you’re wiping a table or drying sheets. Or in the fight of your life.”
And that’s it for this Top 5 Tuesday post. Feel free to share yours below if you’re also participating in this meme.
