It’s been a while since I’ve done a T5W but I felt like I could answer this topic, so yay. Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey @ gingerreadslainey and is currently hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to join Top 5 Wednesday take a look at the Goodreads group!
The topic of today is
Obviously I can’t stick to just books on this one. I have a lot of feelings.
Lexa (The 100)
I will stan and defend Lexa until my dying breath. Not going to say anything more about that. Reshop, Heda.
Speaking of Lexa though. A friend and I recently discovered they’re doing Comic Con in Copenhagen in September (IS THIS REAL LIFE) and one of the first two confirmed guests is none other than Alycia (Lexa) herself. Hold me, I can’t breathe. So naturally the first thing we did was order tickets. Who else is coming? I don’t know, I don’t care. Holy shit. Aasdfghjkiuhyuh

Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
Katniss gets some flack sometimes because she’s somewhat cold, “rude,” and emotionally stunted, but that’s what I love so much about her. You don’t need to be happy and perfectly polite all the time, especially not when your country is going to shit.

Ron Weasley (Harry Potter)
Surprisingly a lot of people hate Ron. That hurts my very soul as he is one of the first characters I really loved. Maybe these people have been influenced by the movies, as there was a lot of character assassination going on there with Ron. Book Ron is not the same as Movie Ron. When people ask what Hermione could possibly see in Ron I will go on a rant.

Mickey Milkovich (Shameless US)
My all-time favorite character right next to Lexa. You both deserved better. I won’t rant about it because it makes me so angry but I still have yet to finish season 6 because I’m so upset over what happened. I’m not excusing some of Mickey’s past actions, but when people pretend like he’s just a mean thug I will lose my cool. We have to remember his traumas when we talk about him and his actions.
All I wanted was for Mickey to be happy. Literally, that was it. Goddamn it.

Sansa Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones)
I’ve defended Sansa ever since season 1. Lots of people hate(d) her just because she was “annoying” and acted like “a spoiled princess.” Well, that was kind of the point and she’s grown from that, as most children do. We must remember she’s an 11 years old child in the beginning of the show and she was raised with the mindset of getting married and living happily ever after. Her fight has always been silent and internal, and now we’ll finally see some of that come out as well with her and Jon taking back the North. I hope season 6 will be good to Sansa. Knock on wood.
