I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger lover for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love.
Today’s topic is : Mentor Me! (A mentor character that you wish would mentor you too!)
Following Merriam Webster, a mentor is:
Do have a look at Dimitri tutoring Rose how to kill a Strigoi from the Vampire Academy Graphic Novel. Isn’t it all sexy and hot?
Now that my body is in capable hands let’s care about my mind.
After all the stress of training and killing to protect the weaks, being all serious and focused I think I would have to be reminded that life is about well …living!
Enjoying the small joys, playing pranks. Stopping to worry ahead and plan all the time. Just live in the moment. Enjoy the simple joys. Cuddle with someone you love.

My favorite mentor would be a crazy, naughty but sweet dog named Atticus!
You’ve met him some weeks ago when I interviewed him with his mom Sawyer Bennett.
His shennanigans include a “pre wash cycling” for dishes already in the dishwasher (when you forget to close it immediately), running after very big snakes (shouting from mom); stealing the meat you’ve pulled out of the fridge (if you don’t want it you don’t leave it sitting duck on the table), eating chocolate cookies (and causing a big fright)…
Here is a quote to illustrate his dedication to create mayhem and increase the odds to get food:
“My dog friends…if you lay in the middle of the floor while your human is cooking, you run a 57.3% statistical probability they will trip over you with food in their hands. The trick is in moving fast to get the food off the floor before they do.”

Do you get now why I chose these two mentors?
I would first strain my body (and enjoy the eye candy) then let all stress lose!
Now do tell me who would you choose as a mentor?
Happy Thursday and thanks for reading!
