Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated.

Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Killer Characters Blogfest

Hosted by Get Busy Writing. The theme is, you guessed it, Killer Characters! Is there a hero who's haunted your dreams? How about a lower-than-dirt bad guy who's made your skin crawl? Or a spunky sidekick who's stolen your heart? Tell us about them!

Join us in three challenges:
1) Oct 24 post about your favorite literary supporting character2) Oct 26 post about your favorite literary protagonist
3) Oct 28 post about your favorite literary antagonist
All entires should be 250 words maximum, but you may use all the pictures you'd like.

All my chosen characters are richly colourful and well crafted. they come alive off the page.

SUPPORTING CHARACTERS
Serverus Snape
from Harry Potter who everyone loves to hate and
as a little cheat Captain Barbossa from Pirates of the Carribean after all the character was crafted by screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio.


ANTAGONISTS Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere characters
 
Mr. Croup who is the talkative half of the pair of assassins. He is an educated thug, short, fat, and speaks in a pompous and verbose manner and seems be the one calling the shots. He has a taste (literally) for fine china. Mr. Vandemar is rather dull-witted, tall, and gangly. Vandemar is Croup’s polar opposite. He does not speak much, but when he does, his statements are often laconic and blunt. He is quite brutish and seems to enjoy nothing more than killing and destroying things (even practising his golf swing with live toads).


PROTAGONISTS:

I probably found this hardest of all to choose one,
should it be Becky Sharpe from Vanity Fair because she is ever resourceful in an unfair world?

or Todd and Viola from Chaos Walking Trilogy who battle on through adversity?

Or Vianne Rocher from Chocolat by Joanne Harris because she is kind and proactive in helping others and ends up learning how to let others help her?
