Characterize It (7)

Welcome to Characterize It, a meme held every Thursday and hosted by The YA Book Butterfly. It's a weekly meme, each week featuring a different characteristic. Basically, each week, she'll pick a new characteristic and participating bloggers as well as herself will choose a character that fits that description. For more information, look here.

This week's theme is The Mr. Darcy - Guy Character that acts standoffish at first....but is sincerely attracted to the girl.

Um... can I just say almost every male protagonist in YA history? *listens* Oh, no, I can't? Well, then... The best character for this role is definitely Jace Wayland Morgernstern Herondale Lightwood.  I mean, come on, Jace is the epitome of jerk at first. Self-absorbed, thinks he knows everything, no girl in their right mind would give Jace a true chance. Except for Clary, who gave him the benefit of the doubt. That might not have been the best move since, now, between the two of them, they have been lied to, locked up more times than I can count, stabbed way too many times, killed, kidnapped, possessed, lied to some more, and heartbroken. BUT, hopefully, it will all work out in the end. Jace shows that he is kind, caring, and truly in love with Clary before the story is over.

Who do you think is the Mr. Darcy of YA?
