Second of all, I was recently tagged by Ashley (thanks girl!) for the Ten Favorite Screen Characters Tag. This was so hard for me. Also, I realized that all my favorite characters are either a) goofy and ridiculous or b) heartbreakingly tragic. Oh well, basically me.
MY TOP TEN FAVORITE SCREEN CHARACTERS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
Actually, more than ten because I could not make up my mind. I've narrowed the list down substantially, though, so lucky you.
It really bothers me that so many people like him so much. Like he's mine, back off...
2. Eugene Fitzherbert/Flynn Ryder
...but, seriously, I am fine with Eugene too. Except he's married, so that's not exactly about to work out. He's so selfless, I just love how respectfully he comes to treat Rapunzel. Definitely husband goals, how he is willing to lay down his life for her.
MAKES. ME. LAUGH. SO HARD. I have probably seen The Incredibles over thirty times (it's a Schlueter family classic) and every single time I AM ON THE FLOOR. Not even exaggerating one bit. Plus, I can basically quote all his lines.
Oh my goodness. Favorite animated villain EVER. Doof is so tragic yet hilarious and I just can't help but want to hug him and be best friends. I feel like he would be an awesome dad.
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE RAY WHY?!!? He gets my favorite Disney side-kick award. When we went to see Princess and the Frog (amazing movie), I cried harder than the little girl in front of me when he died.
We watched the BBC Merlin series last summer and I'm still suffering from Post Merlin Depression. I love how real Merlin is, how good he is, yet how he has legitimate struggles.
She is so incredibly heartbreakingly selfless.
8. Barney Fife
Andy Griffith Show is a family favorite on my mom's side of the family, and whenever my cousins and I get together, we do AGS marathons. Everything about Barney kills me--the way he walks, talks, his expressions...priceless.
9. Captain America
Again, another totally selfless character. His genuine pursuit of what is right is so inspiring...and attractive.
12. Mr. Thornton
THE FEELS ARE REAL. From another BBC favorite, North & South, Thornton is a tragic, heartbreaking character. I love the depth of his character as well as the intense development and nothing-is-as-it seems attitude. Plus, his complete devotion to someone he knows (thinks) will never love him back...
is it weird that I was strangely attracted to a blue, animated, big-headed (literally) character? Yep, thought so. Oh well. #noshame
And here are the lovely bloggers I'm tagging (no pressure at all, if you don't do tags):
I went the "teen blogger" route when tagging...there's a lot of great stuff by young writers out there. Pop by their blogs and say hello. They're fabulous and I'm sure would appreciate the support!
