I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love. ♡
High School First Love
So second time is the charm with this, hopefully. I have so many book boyfriends it’s hard to choose one. I’m that person who doesn’t really go for the typical stereotyped sporty guy. I’m the type of person who lies the guy who yes is attractive but is also a massive dork (hence my obsession with Sebastian Stan). So I was wracking my brain trying to think of someone I would usually go for. After a long hard think which included characters portrayed by Sebastian Stan, Merry from Lord of the Rings, Julian and Dante from Caraval and Legendary and Captain Jack Sparrow I came to the conclusion that none of these quite beat this guy:
Rhysand would defiantly be my High School first love (yeah there’s a several hundred year difference but I’m choosing to ignore that fact). He’s good-looking, hes sassy and he’s without a doubt got a flair for the dramatic. I think we’d compliment each other well.
Like I said he’s good-looking and the a court of Thorns and Roses Wiki describes him as follows:
Rhysand is described to be heartbreakingly handsome and have short blue-black hair, like a raven’s feathers, and violet eyes with flecks of silver like starlight. He has a tan complexion, however he was also once pale because he was forced Under the Mountain for so long, and gained back his coloring after spending time in Velaris. He also has tattoos decorating his arms and muscular chest. He has tattoos on both of his knees of mountains with 3 stars on top of the mountains, representing that he will bow for nothing and no one but his crown and Feyre.
He has giant, smooth membranous wings that are flecked with a hint of iridescence and are clawed like a bat’s. He wears rich clothing, cloaked in tendrils of night: an ebony tunic brocaded with gold and silver, dark pants and black boots that reached his knees
His beauty and handsomeness are said to be legendary, greater so far than anyone else’s in Prythian. He radiates sensual grace and ease, and keeps his composure most of the time. A Court of Thorns and Roses wikia
The way Sarah wrote him makes him swoon worthy on sight but with Rhys it isn’t just about his looks. Which Rhys wouldn’t want to hear as he is arrogant and not very humble in ACOTAR.
However, we discover that this is all a mask as Rhys is all about family and Valeris. He seems to have his own agenda but he has a huge reason for it and I can understand that he didn’t want to disclose them so soon.
As much as I think that he’s my high school first love I don’t think it will be lasting because I love how he is with Feyre Darling
