Secondary Characters Bloghop
It's time for the Secondary Characters Bloghop, hosted by Theresa Paolo, Jessica Salyer, Jenny Morris, Suzi Retzlaff, and Kelley Lynn.
Sometimes secondary characters steal the show, (or the book) and become our favorites. On May 22nd we want you to tell us about your favorite secondary characters from books or movies, or both!
Whether it's the funny best friend or that goofy kid next door,
we want to know what secondary characters
you just couldn't get enough of and why.
As soon as I heard about this bloghop, I knew exactly who I would include.
First of all, from the Lord of the Rings series, I've always thought Samwise Gamgee didn't get enough credit. If it wasn't for him, the ring probably would never have been destroyed. Frodo himself said that he wouldn't have gotten very far without Sam, and it's true. Sam really should have got all of the glory! Of course, you have to remember that he didn't have to bear the burden of the Ring :)
Next, a couple from the Harry Potter series. I always loved Neville and Luna; they really came into their own when they joined the DA in Order of the Phoenix. I love how they were the only members of the order to reply to Hermione's message in Half Blood Prince. I also love how they weren't typical heroes; they were brave, and they fought knowing that it could end with their deaths. Like with Sam, Harry wouldn't have succeeded without the help of these two.
Obviously, Ron and Hermione were also very important in the series, but that really goes without saying. And there are a whole lot of other awesome secondary characters in Harry Potter, but my post would be too long if I listed them all.
