Sidekick Showcase #3

sidekickshowcase
 
Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday, is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here by Jaclyn at JC’s Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn’t have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on my page. Just do the following:

• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fit’s in the week’s topic
• Share a picture (if you can) and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don’t include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• The day of your post, put your link in below and grab the code for your post so you can see the others that post their’s throughout the week as well

This Weeks Theme Not who they say they are.

This is a hard choice to do without giving away spoilers so be warned there may be spoilers, You can take this topic a couple of ways either the character is pretending to be someone else to mislead or they want to appear as someone they are not to hide personality traits.  I can think of a few in books that I have read recently but since they are going to be spoilers, I am going to go with someone who every has either read or at least been told the story.

The Evil Queen From Snow White

Here are my reasons,  She pretends to be a loving wife to the king, but is only in  love with herself.   She changes her appearance to deceive snow-white and kill her. 

I guess really any step mothers from the fairy tales can be part of this sidekick topic because on the outside they are perfect and put together but on the inside they are twisted and evil.

  1. Ah, she is the perfect example for this topic! She does pretend to be a doting wife and I’m sure no one would have suspected she was so evil beneath her facade. That’s the worst kind of evil, isn’t it?!?

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I love this Queen the most of all the stepmothers! She is evil and wicked for sure, but definitely hides it well from everyone but Snow. I love the old crone disguise the most. What a great choice 😀

    Have you watched Once Upon a Time? I don’t know if it’s showing in Australia yet, but I sure hope it is. I absolutely love the show so I hope you have a chance to see it. The evil queen is my favorite character and your post is making me wish it would hurry up and come back on LOL. Have a fantastic weekend! Jaclyn @ JC’s Book Haven.

  4. I look forward to your Grimm/Disney post on Snow White. This was one of the scarier Disney stories. Will ran from the room when the music started (at the very beginning). I love that Jaclyn’s favorite step mother character is the queen. Sheesh, I have always gotten along with my stepmom. Perfect choice for this week’s challenge!

    • ha ha My husband has a step mother and I was worried that they would think she was evil from watching too much disney. The stories always seem to equate any step family to be evil.
