30 Days of Female Characters: Day 22: Favorite female character you love but everyone else hates

Day 22: Favorite female character you love but everyone else hates: Sansa Stark(Game of Thrones/A song of Ice and Fire)
Sansa is a character I love for how she just wants to believe that her life can be the way it is in songs but sadly for her she soon learns that those songs are just stories and real life is very cruel. Sansa is a character that I just feel for through out the series and I can completely understand were she's coming from so I think this is one of the things that makes her my second favorite character of the whole series. Sadly quite a few people in the fandom hate her because she was naive and trusted the wrong people, I can understand her not being a favorite character but I don't really think that she deserves hate. In one book review of Game of Thrones I read someone actually said that they believed that Sansa is worse than Joffrey(who is basically pure evil) even though the only thing Sansa is guilty of is being navie enough to believe that the Lannister's are good people and she pays greatly for her navity and in the books she's only 11 years old, I don't think she's done anything to deserve that level of hate. Overall I love her character and I find that her parts of the books are my favorite to read.

  1. I haven't read the novels but as far as the t.v. series goes, I'm with you. Sansa believes in what she was taught to believe in. She is the typical lady of the time and just wants to fall in love and be a princess. It doesn't make her bad or wrong, it just makes her a product of her raising. There is no reason why she sould get so much hate. Actually, Cassandra Clare wrote a really good article about her.
