Day 6 of the 2012 A to Z Blogging Challenge
For this challenge, I'm exploring my
FAVORITE FICTIONAL MALE CHARACTERS
I have definitely noticed since I began my Scorpius tale that I have a real soft spot for stories exploring what might seem at first to be father-figure/abandoned-boy storylines.
I think of them more as mentor/apprentice storylines. The father figure has so much emotional baggage. I find these stories allow the younger male character to bond for the first time with an adult male who is a positive force in his life.
As with all great character arcs, it's the more inexperienced character who ends up triggering the major growth for the mentor.
