#IHeartCharacters Meme #2: Grumpy Characters Need Love Too!


In case the title of this post didn't catch your attention, my new friend and name-twin, Dani from Perspective of a Writer, has created a new weekly meme to share our favorite characters. 

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. ♡
This week's topic is  A Grump with a Heart of Gold (Characters with rude or disgruntled personalities deserve love too… especially if they thaw towards the MC, eventually.)



I chose good ol' Peter Van Houten from The Fault in Our Stars. I remember I hated this alcoholic drunk jerkface, both in the movie and book. The book was much worse, because Peter knew that his biggest fan, Hazel Grace Lancaster, wanted to know the ending of her favorite book, An Imperial Affliction. He knew that she wanted the tea on how the book ended, and he just didn't want to talk. It wasn't until the end of the book that Peter finally told her how the story ends. But it was too late; Hazel was already in her feelings. At least Peter came back to try to give her what she wanted. It shows a bit of sincerity. Also, we got to see how cancer had affected him personally, when his daughter had died of it. I felt bad for him in that moment, even though I hated the way he treated Hazel Grace and Augustus.
