“You might get to know characters in books, but getting to know a human was an entirely different thing.”― Katherine Arden
It’s the last Tuesday of the month of September! Look how time flies. I’m glad that I was able to participate in this meme and get to share some of the characters I love in books, manga, and even from tv series and anime.
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Meeghan over at their blog. Feel free to join in on the fun by linking back to one of her posts so she’ll be notified. The more the merrier, so let’s get posting!
The rules? We can do first name, last name, nicknames, whatever we want – that’s completely up to us!!
Here’s my P-Z Character list!
“With great power… comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.”
“You deal with mythological stuff for a few years, you learn that paradises are usually places where you get killed.”
“If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.”― Book series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians & Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
“Fireheart, her mother had called her. Not for her power. The name had never once been about her power.”
“Aelin was insane, Dorian realized. Brilliant and wicked, but insane.”
“My name is Aelin Ashryver Galathynius. And I am the Queen of Terrasen.”― Book Series: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
ROWAN WHITETHORN / RHYSAND
“The queen hadn’t even bothered to say good-bye. She’d just dashed for the injured Fae warrior, his name like a prayer on her lips. Rowan.”― Book series: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
“There are different kinds of darkness. There is the darkness that frightens, the darkness that soothes, the darkness that is restful. There is the darkness of lovers, and the darkness of assassins. It becomes what the bearer wishes it to be, needs it to be. It is not wholly bad or good.”― Book Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
“A heaven that only watches has no meaning for me. I do not want gods, but the power of people.”
“Kindness is not a crime. But sometimes it awakens the weakness and greed in others.”― Anime/Manga Series: Akatsuki no Yona by Mizuho Kusanagi
“The last ones standing are the victors. Only the strongest. If you want to be the last one standing become strong.”
“No matter how challenging the volley, there’s only one reason why we chase the ball…there’s only one reason we continue fighting. Because we haven’t lost yet!”― Anime/Manga Series: Haikyuu!! by Haruichi Furudate
I ran out with U. But here’s another notable character from Haikyuu.
“An excellent seedling needs suitably excellent soil. It can’t yield first-rate fruit on barren land.”― Anime/Manga Series: Haikyuu!! by Haruichi Furudate
“You have to do the opposite of what people expect. How else will you surprise them?”
“Skaters’ hearts are as fragile as glass.”
“How can someone who can’t motivate others motivate himself?”― Anime Series: Yuri on Ice
“Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.”
“There’s plenty of sense in nonsense sometimes, if you wish to look for it.”
“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them.”― Book Series: The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
XIAO BAI (BAI FENG JIU)
“Since I’m the one who loves you best, I must always be by your side.”
“Carve your heart out. I heard that when one wants to declare his feelings, there is nothing more sincere than to carve his heart out. Mortals die when their hearts are removed, so when death is made into remembrance, such memory cannot fail to be significant nor can it fail to be sincere.”― Book: Three Lives Three Worlds, The Pillow Book / Drama: Eternal Love of Dream
YENNEFER of VENGERBERG
“And let’s face it, you’re a girl. Your mother was right about one thing. We’re just vessels. And even when we’re told we’re special, as I was, as you would’ve been, we’re still just vessels, for them to take, and take, until we’re empty, and alone. So, count yourself lucky. You’ve cheated the game and won without even knowing it.”
“Whatever you lack in talent, you make up for in confidence.”
“Think for yourself. It’ll save you a lifetime of heartbreak.”― TV/Book Series: The Witcher based on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski
ZENO (Ouryuu/YELLOW DRAGON)
“People are mirrors. If you smile, a smile will be reflected.”
“I am the dragon that was born to be your shield. If Ouryuu, your shield, protects you…You will never…be injured.”
“I might be the odd picking of the dragons, but I’ll make sure that I’ll protect all of you with all my might.”― Anime/Manga Series: Akatsuki no Yona by Mizuho Kusanagi
