Today's topic for Why I Love Wednesday is Favorite Heroes...well, I'm taking this in a different way and declaring my love for the Anti-Hero. Anti-Heroes are generally the underdog of the story or the "hero-in-hiding" and seeing them triumph in one way or another is always one of my favorite aspects in a story. So, here's to the Anti-Heroes!
My most loved anti-hero is, hands down, Severus Snape. Many would argue that he is not worthy of being considered a hero, but I would beg to differ...heatedly. He's loyal to a fault and completely constant in his treatment toward others. These aspects alone garner him hero status in my book. But if someone needs more convicing, simply look at how he sacrifices himself on countless occassions: with Draco, with Harry, with Dumbledore, and, ultimately, with his own life. Here's your medal, Professor!
