I have a little secrete to confess, one my CP's may already know. I tend to default "those comments" in my books to the secondary characters. You know the ones like, "OMG, who farted?" It's all the little comments that in real life I might say in my head, but don't say out loud. Guess what? Neither does my hero. They tend to be the more serious character while their best friend word vomits. I did fall in love with one of those characters so much I'm giving him his own book. So sometimes, the guy who is almost the hero but never quite makes it can be the hero in his own story.
Enough about my characters. We're here to talk about the ones I've fallen in love with. I think mine are all pretty well known. I think I'll do picture montage and give a tiny bit about why I liked them.
First up, one of my all time favorite bad guys who really is a good guy-Professor Severus Snape.
Next up, we have another one of my favorite books. And characters. Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia.
I love his strength and wisdom. And in the movies they did a fantastic job of bringing him to life. I wish I could cuddle up next to the fearsome lion and have him tell me a story.
Now for a non-book secondary character. And you guys may think I'm weird but Joss Whedon is also a master at creating AMAZING secondary characters. What would Buffy be without the Scooby gang? Dead probably. ;0) So I give you Spike aka William the Bloody.
Whether Spike's trying to be the biggest baddy Buffy ever faced, (and failing, lol) or desperately trying to be a good guy, he always tried SO hard. And ended up getting laughed at more than he would have liked. But the thing is, he always made me laugh. And I know technically he's more of an antagonist in the first part of the series. But he totally becomes an intricate part of the Scooby gang later on.
My last one is also not from a book. If you haven't seen Grimm, you're missing out. It's filmed in my little old town of Portland. And they've done such a great job of putting a new twist on old things like werewolves, witches, ghost and even zombies. The main guy, Nick, is a cutie. I'll give him that. But one of the reasons I fell in love with the show is Monroe.
He is hands down a total Portlander. And such a contradiction He's their version of a werewolf. But he's wears sweaters, works on clocks, and he even plays the cello. And he's so funny. I think I'd be more upset if Monroe died than Nick. Well, maybe equally.
OMG, I did this post yesterday and I'm recovering from a few days of headaches. So I really did leave off some of my favorite people. So instead of making this post even longer with words I'm just going to throw some pictures up.

Alrighty, I'm off to see who all of you picked. I can't wait!! Here's the linky list if you need it. ;)
I know I promised a review of Peggy's class today but I didn't realize the Secondary Character Blog Hop fell on the same day. I hope you'll join me next week when I do a recap of her class.
