Six For Sunday is a weekly blog series created by Steph @ ALittleButALot. Prompts for April, May, and June 2020 are now up, and May’s prompts are all about series! Today I’m talking about my favourite characters from series I’ve read. I also thought it would be fun to include fan art of my faves instead of photos from TV/film adaptations.

I know I’m just using the same, like, handful of series in every one of these Six For Sundays posts. Sorry not sorry for apparently only reading standalones.
Sirius Black from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Sirius is probably my all-time favourite character, from anything, ever. He plays such a big part in the books even though he’s not really in a lot of ‘scenes’. Despite him being my fave, I don’t ever want more SB content from JKR or anyone for that matter. I don’t need a Marauders Era prequel, don’t touch it please. Let me have my headcanons.
Fan art from batcii on tumblr. They’ve left tumblr recently so this link doesn’t really work but idk where else to point you to tbh. Honestly, I’m DEVASTED, they did some of my fave HP fan art. Sad.
Lyra Belaqua from His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
Continuing with the theme of cestial names, I love Lyra and I’ve loved growing up with her and these books. I can’t wait to finally read The Secret Commonwealth and see her as an adult.

Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I tried to only include one character from Harry Potter. Like, I really tried. But I love Remus so much and I can’t have Sirius without Remus so here we are. A huge softie, I’m a big fan. Remus deserved better and let me tell you, I literally wrote an essay on this. I took a 10-week class on Harry Potter during university (highlight of my academic career) and my final paper was basically titled ‘JUSTICE FOR REMUS LUPIN’.
I’m really Going Through It right now so this fan art from littlebitellie on Tumblr is my phone lockscreen bc it makes me feel so happy.
Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy from A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin
I adore these two characters but I actually really hated both of them in the first couple of books! Over the course of the series they both grow so much and have such difficult journeys and you’d be cold as ice not to care for them. When they came together in season five of the TV show, I was like, yes, these two, I would Die For Them.*
* I just reminded myself that this doesn’t happen in the books and I feel betrayed, I just don’t know who by.
It’s hard to find fan art of these two which doesn’t ship them. I am firmly against, but thanks. Anyway, this is from venquian on DeviantArt.
Peter Jaxon from The Passage trilogy by Justin Cronin
I love this series and the fact that the TV show was cancelled is truly tragic, but the books are incredible. I haven’t read them in so long but I just remember how much love I had for Peter. He’s a Good Man and I’m very attached. Honourable mention goes to out to Michael Fisher too. Just a boy and his boat.
I couldn’t find any fan art of Peter which even more tragic than the TV show being cancelled.
