Characters Traits I Get Heart Eyes Over…

Top Ten Tuesday today is Character Traits that Make You Love Them which sounded like the perfect chance to do an ode to the characters I love.

I was really going to go for it but had to control myself because while great hair and a killer beard might give me heart eyes it’s not really a trait.

 Most apply to multiple characters obviously.

Bill Hader in It

Uses humor to hide the fact they are actually scared, sad teddy bear in desperate need of a hug.

Tragic Hero.

  1. Ohh those are some good ones !!

    I gotta say I quite like my cocky guys XD the over-estimating themselves, know-it-all kind. But on the opposite, I can’t help but fall for the too pure character aswell; the one you just wanna protect at all cost.

  2. YOU BROKE MY HEART BY INCLUDING TONY STARKK! 😭😭😭 He’d have been better off being an asshole and not really caring about anything, I am telling you! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

    And SOOO TRUE BAOUT TRAGIC HEROESS AND THE DONT-GIVE-A-FUCK ones!

  3. I love so many of these! I’m a total sucker for people who use humour as a defense mechanism. Or really, *anything* as a defense mechanism. And I LOVE it when “embracing wonder” characters are paired up with “perpetually over it” characters. 😀

  4. noble heroes are my absolutely favorites. no wonder T’Challa is my favorite character in the marvel universe.
    use humor to hide they’re broken is also such a great trait! i have yet to find more characters like this. i love monty, from the gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue, and i think he is a perfect example of it. re-reading the book earlier this year i was really struck by how much he’s just a true scared, broken guy underneath it all, but he just laughs it off and it’s actually even more heartbreaking when he does so.
    the perpetually-over it is just me if i was a fictional character, tbh.
    loved this post! and loved you shared examples for each too!

  5. Great choices, I was chuckling! Carol has one of the best character arcs I’ve ever seen, and I fell in love with her the moment she threw the fireworks (can’t remember which season, but it was that season where it was Texas chainsaw massacre, but make it zombie apocalypse fashion). If I’m ever going to watch Parks & Rec, it’ll be because of Ron Swanson. I’ll have to go the opposite way and say I prefer slow learners, but definitely love train wrecks!
