I know this answer will shock everyone, but it’s—wait for it—Aaron Tveit. I know.
Aaron Tveit could probably walk around in a circle for two hours and I’d go “OMG WHAT A BRILLIANT INTERPRETATION,” but he (thankfully) does so much more than that as Gabe. He’s clearly malicious, but at the same time, Aaron lets you see the sadness that motivates Gabe.
Eighteen Days of Next to Normal - Favourite Male Character
This was such a hard choice, because I think Dan and Gabe are brilliant in terms of character development. Honestly, while I think Henry’s a good character, I think he’s a little too perfect, and thus not as realistic as Dan and Gabe (and yes, I just called Gabe realistic. Go with it.) But, that’s exactly why he’s my favourite character. He makes me swoon.
I chose “Hey #1” for this post because it’s one of my favourite scenes for Henry. He’s so carefree, but in this scene, it’s obvious he cares about what’s important to him, which is Natalie. And obviously, you see that in “Perfect for You” as well. He’s a refreshing character in that way, and of course, so swoon-worthy.
Anonymous said:I read your answer to the anon asking how to handle getting to close to their characters and not wanting to hurt them. My question is slightly different because I have no problem being cruel to my characters as it opens them up for more writing. My problem is that I don't like to make them imperfect. in their friendships, reactions to situations big or small.
I understand the desire to make your characters have a perfect grasp on and response to everything that is happening around them. It can be SUPER...
