Feature and Follow Friday

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Please follow the links to the hosts' websites to: 1) Follow them if you aren't already; and 2) Check out the rules if you haven't done this before!

This week's prompt: What is your favorite character archetype(s)?

 I have two favorite archetypes:

1) The Alpha Male

I really love the take-charge kind of guys. They're always first to run into battle, take control of situations, and stand up for their woman. My favorite alpha males are the members of the Black Dagger Brotherhood; sure the writing is a little corny at times, but I still enjoy the series a lot. In case you're wondering, my boys are Wrath and Zsadist, although they are all awesome. 

2) The Bad-ass Heroine

I love a female character that doesn't cower in fear and wait for the man to save her. They are tough, confident, independent, and full of survival instinct. Some good examples are, of course, Katniss (from The Hunger Games) and Tris (from Divergent). 

So what are your favorites? Leave a link to your post in the comments!


  1. Oh great choices definitely! Though Tris is not my fave but bad ass is definitely in my favourite archetype!

    1. I liked Tris mostly in the first book, but she ended up annoying me a lot as the series progressed. Thanks for stopping by, just followed you back!

  2. I'm with you on both! I love alpha heroes, but I need them to be complex, not just brutish, you know? Got to have that heart of gold!
