I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by (me!) Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love. ♡
Stephen King is a bit too hyped for me. Yeah, his books are good, the characters well developed, and the plots fascinating, but what’s the big deal?

Sam and I went mad around the same time, if you don’t consider the time span in between the original release and my netflix binge last year. It was hard, especially the episode when he’s led into a storehouse by Lucy and starts shooting into air. I may not need Lucifer in me to be crazy, but I recognize in Sam Winchester a kindred soul. A genius overpowered by work. The quiet one that does more than he gets screentime for.
Don’t get me wrong, Cass and Dean are my favorites. But I wish it could be less about Dean and more about the Winchester family and hunters in general.
When I first saw Descendants 2 a week ago, I immediately wanted everything Evie. I could do with less girlyness, but she makes it work. And blue. So much blue. I didn’t know I could be this wanting of a fictional characters wardrobe before. I mean,
