@EffieTrinket:  Sorry, is there a link or a poll? I’d definitely like to discuss! I hate that kinja system too.

Heathcliff, from Wuthering Heights or Robbie from Atonement.

I see a pp said Snape, and I’ve got to agree that’d he’d definitely be up there as well!

Peter Pan– if this makes sense– suuuuper tragic in that every time someone dies (a lost boy, tinkerbell, etc) he forgets they ever existed.

Of any character ever?  Not from a particular series?

Ram Mohamed Thomas from the book Q&A was pretty friggin tragic.  If you can believe it, I happened to be reading the book when I got a call from World Vision soliciting for sponsors for children in India (the character is a poor Indian orphan).  Good timing for them, I signed up.

Oh my god yes, Fry’s dog from Futurama was the saddest thing I’ve ever seen. I bawled.

Jack O’Neill from Stargate. His son shot himself with Jack’s gun! 🙁

Snape is up there too.

@EffieTrinket:  Ohhh I get it now…Embarassed

 

@LavenderHouse:  I agree – Edward Rochester had a fairly tragic backstory. In the vein of Jane Eyre and all of the literary retellings of it, I think Mr. De Winter of Daphne DuMaurier’s novel Rebecca is also quite tragic. Perhaps even more than Rochester! 

 

I agree with Snape. That was definitely very sad.
