I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger lover 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.
Today’s topic is : Mentor Me! (A mentor character that you wish would mentor you too!)
Following Merriam Webster, a mentor is:
Do have a look at Dimitri tutoring Rose how to kill a Strigoi from the Vampire Academy Graphic Novel. Isn’t it all sexy and hot?
Now that my body is in capable hands let’s care about my mind.
After all the stress of training and killing to protect the weaks, being all serious and focused I think I would have to be reminded that life is about well …living!
Enjoying the small joys, playing pranks. Stopping to worry ahead and plan all the time. Just live in the moment. Enjoy the simple joys. Cuddle with someone you love.
What best teacher than … an animal?
Animals don’t worry about what is to come tomorrow. They soak the sun. They play in the snow. They love walking in puddles and …
My favorite mentor would be a crazy, naughty but sweet dog named Atticus!
You’ve met him some weeks ago when I interviewed him with his mom Sawyer Bennett.
His shennanigans include a “pre wash cycling” for dishes already in the dishwasher (when you forget to close it immediately), running after very big snakes (shouting from mom); stealing the meat you’ve pulled out of the fridge (if you don’t want it you don’t leave it sitting duck on the table), eating chocolate cookies (and causing a big fright)…
Here is a quote to illustrate his dedication to create mayhem and increase the odds to get food:
“My dog friends…if you lay in the middle of the floor while your human is cooking, you run a 57.3% statistical probability they will trip over you with food in their hands. The trick is in moving fast to get the food off the floor before they do.”
My favorite picture perfect illustration of Atticus’s life philosophy
Do you get now why I chose these two mentors?
I would first strain my body (and enjoy the eye candy) then let all stress lose!
Now do tell me who would you choose as a mentor?
Happy Thursday and thanks for reading!
Awesome choices! A hot dude and a hilarious dog? Yes, please!
Oooh yes! I want Atticus to be my mentor too! <3
Hahaha or a cat like Atticus for you Brittany?
I loved Dimitri but then I feel for Adrian
Well yes but there is only one winner …
Oh yes, Dmitri would be a fabulous mentor. He was really tough and demanding. Exactly the perfect kind of mentor to build a fighting machine. I need to read Atticus. I am a Bennett fan (especially love her Cold Fury books), and Atticus sounds great.
Oh Sam if you love Sawyer’s books you’ll fall in love with Atticus!
Omg yes Dimitri, he’s such a great choice!! I loved him back when I read the Vampire Academy books I agree that he would definitely make a great mentor and teach me quite a few things!
Hahaha Caro I think he broke meany hearts LOL
WOW Sophie! Now I need to read the Vampire Academy graphic novel!! I didn’t even think about someone to train your body and I. LOVE. IT. Dimitri can train me up to look like your gif any day 😀 And awwww Atticus is the perfect trickster mentor! If only that kitchen trick worked for me to get me fed treats, lol. ❤️ You killed with two mentors Sophie!
Hahaha Dani I knew you would love the graphic novel LOL
