I Heart Characters #3 – The Wicked Witch


It’s time again for Dani’s meme that focuses solely on our favorite characters πŸ™‚ This week’s topic is WICKED WITCH. A real one, one who acts like one . . . a fantasy villain or contemporary bully. If you’ve been around the Ginger Mom awhile and know a few of my obsessions, this week’s pick is an easy guess πŸ™‚

I know she’s not in a book, but Regina from Once Upon a Time is my favorite wicked witch EVER! She’s so evil in the beginning, but I think what I love most about her is how she changes. (spoilers to those of you who haven’t watched the show) I heart Regina, NOT JUST because she’s the best Evil Queen, but because she’s so strong. And we’re not talking evil magic strong, but good Regina is one heck of a kick-butt character, too. She’s actually one of my favorite protagonists – once she decides to be a part of the team instead of the spoiled, self-serving villain.

Then there’s her bond with Henry. He isn’t biologically hers and you can tell in the beginning that he’s really only a pawn, but afterwards – again, after the self-serving villain – she becomes an amazing mom. It’s one of the things that really draws me to her.

Even the best villains can have love ❀

I love how many different facets she has. How she can go from being the villain, to a good character, and then right back to the villain. All in the blink of an eye!

Yes, she is, without a doubt, my favorite wicked witch / evil queen. Yes to power / revenge seeking Evil Queen and yes to loving hero mom Regina. She’s amazing any way you look at her!

Oh my gosh, there are so many wicked witches / villains that you could choose for this prompt! Who is your favorite? Are you a fellow Once Upon a Time addict like me? Let us know in the comments below who you would pick as your favorite wicked witch / villain (yes, I may have stretched the definition of this prompt, just a teensy bit!) As always, thanks for reading! We definitely HEART you, too!

  1. Oh, I ❀️ Regina too. She was my favorite character in the series and I think at some points I was watching it only because of her.

  2. Ooh nice choice! I’ve only watched some of S1 but from what I saw of her she looked like an excellent antagonist- and nice to hear that she turns around later too, I love a good redemption arc! πŸ™‚
