This week's question:
Who is your favorite flawed hero and/or heroine and why do you still love them despite their faults?
I didn't even have to think on this one. Easily, my favorite flawed character male or female is Cesaria Putnam from the Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane. Before I started reading this series I always loved my heroines to be strong, funny, self-effacing and generally having their shit together. I've spent enough of my life around dysfunctional women so I definately did not want the women in my books to have ridiculous issues that any relatively stable adult should have a handle on. When I read the first book of this series I was incredibly annoyed by Chess for being a drug-addicted weakling who forced those around her to deal with whatever fucked up issue du jour she was dealing with. Slowly, she grew on me and after realizing what she had been through in her life I said "Whatever you need to do to get you through the day, Sweetheart, have at it". I eventually came to know her as a strong, loyal, generous, intelligent woman who happens to have a relatively strong case of self-hatred going on....Also, she's a hardcore drug addict. Regardless of the flaws, her positives strongly outweigh the negatives and she's got a Bettie Page haircut w/tattoos so she f-ing rocks!
