Characters I Will Physically Fight You Over

Characters I Will Physically Fight You Over

I think we’ve all been in this situation before: you’re scrolling through Goodreads, minding your own business, you’re not here for a fight. But suddenly you come across a negative review for your favorite book or series. This is hard enough to deal with, but add in the cherry on top of the reviewer tearing apart your favorite character from said book or series. And I mean your favorite favorite.
