Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then “broke up” with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

To the first part of the question, yes. Characters disappoint me all the time when they make stupid mistakes. Some that come to mind: Tally in the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, Bella in the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, Bill in the Sookie Stackhouse series Charlaine Harris, Dany in the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.

But I don’t know that I’ve fell in love with a character and then “broke up” with them.

Dany was probably the biggest disappointment because when I first started reading the series, I had high hopes for her really leading her people and taking back the kingdom. But she’s slow going and I feel like she’s weak and hides behind her dragons. I was disappointed, but I just moved on and focused my attention on other awesome characters, like Jon Snow.
