This week's question: 

Who is your favorite flawed hero and/or heroine and why do you still love them despite their faults?

HeatherJay's answer:
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!

There are a lot of flawed characters that I love no matter what! I think thats what draws you to them in the first place. Their faults and all....who doesnt love a project riight??That being said.... I would have to go with Vishous from BDB. He's depraved and he's a complete ass whole some times and an insufferable no-it-all, but he's sexy as hell....just utterly Delicious, intelligent and loyal to a fault! So...yea, I pick him! Control freak with a room full of toys...Yes Please;)

  4. Zsaidist is also a fav of mine but I just couldnt resist choosing V!!

    If I were to choose a female Character, Chess would definitely be on the top of that list for me! She has a shit load of faults but I just cant help but love her! Downside Ghosts is a fantastic and addictive series!

  5. I completely agree about Chess, she has fast become one of my favourite heroines, she is flawed but, you can't help being 100% behind her.
