Thoughtful Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Reading Is Fun Again. This week:
Do you have character crushes? Are there characters that you want to be your BFF?
Usually any and all character crushes that I have are limited to visual characters, i.e. in films and television, but occasionally a book character just has that certain magic that draws me in and then oops, I’m head over heels.
Madame Genevieve (Vieve) Lefoux
Genevieve Lefoux is a character in Gail Carriger’s book universe. She first appears in her Parasol Protectorate series and then later (though in-universe it would be earlier) a younger version of her (that goes by the name Vieve) appears in the Finishing School series. To make it short, Vieve is my boo. I love her to the point of ridiculousness and while her character kind of does things I disagree with in the last two instalments of the Parasol Protectorate I just can’t help myself. She’s cute and witty and incredibly smart and she makes hats and knows how to build things and occasionally she’s also blatantly gay in the face of Victorian mores. I love it!
I even made a cracky fanmix once! It’s cracky and belies my somewhat shady taste in music, but man, it’s perfect for Vieve. ♥_♥
As for bffs, I think I would love being besties with the girls from Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series or maybe all the lovely people from Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles! Especially Iko. Gosh, I wanna be besties with Iko, negl. Iko is the fabbest of the fab and I adore her.
