Today is a character freebie, so I wanted to talk about characters I hate! I’ve kinda done this before, but I always have more hate to spread.
- Severus Snape
I will be honest. I hate him. I don’t think he’s a redeemable character. His obsessive love is fucking creepy — if you found out someone loved you for that long and obsessed over you, I hope you’d call the police. He’s abusive to children and anyone else, really. I just hate this man.
- Sirius Black
I rewatched the movies a couple weekends ago after not watching them for 5+ years and I forgot how much they sanitized Sirius’s character! No huge fight with Snape. Not abusive to Kreacher. But, the book Sirius? I know exactly why I didn’t like him. He’s that high school bully who never grew up and grew out of his tendencies. He’s nice to his friends but cruel to others. And, I just don’t like Sirius. Never have.
- Lila Bard
Don’t like her. She’s a character that I can’t get behind. I think she’s dumb and reckless. Like Sirius, I get her psychology but I still don’t have to like her. Reckless characters, who are reckless just to be reckless, kill me.
- Dolores Umbridge
Pretty sure that this one is a no-brainer, right? She’s a fascinating character who I love to hate, but, in the end, I desperately hate her.
Oh, Taryn. I remember getting ready to read the first book and seeing all the hate towards her. I didn’t understand it until I did. And, God, do I hate Taryn. She only gets worse.
- Will Henry
I never see anyone reading this series and I do not expect anyone to understand why I hate him. Hell, if you haven’t finished the series you won’t get it. But, Jesus. This boy ruined my mind and ugh. Just a huge mindfuck at the last page of what you know will be the final book.
- Percy Wetmore
If y’all aren’t familiar with The Green Mile you won’t get the reference. But, Percy is a son of a bitch who just gets worse and worse. He got what was coming to him.
- “Wild Bill” Wharton
Another Green Mile reference here. But, I hate him so much. He’s literally so awful that I can’t even describe him.
- Amy Dunne
I’ll tell you who she is. A horrible person. (Her husband is horrid also, but she’s a bit worse from what I remember.)
- Edward Cullen
I know everyone hates Bella and tends to leave out Edward, but he’s so much worse. Bella was a young teen who had low self-esteem and was pretty neglected. Edward groomed her, stalked her, and was super abusive towards her. Edward’s worse.
What characters do you hate?
