5 Fandom Friday is back! This week’s 5 Fandom Friday linkup topic was “favorite fictional moms”. I have lots of those because I love mom characters but I tried to narrow it down to just five.
1. Molly Weasley
This was such an easy pick. I absolutely adore Molly’s character. She is such a warm and loving person and even took Harry under her wing without even thinking about it twice. Also, she completely kicked ass in the Battle of Hogwarts!
2. Piper Halliwell
One of my favorite characters from one of my favorite shows. Piper was always my favorite of the three Halliwell sisters and I knew that she would make a great mom because she was already in the beginning a very down to earth, warm person. And she held the sisters together even when Phoebe and Prue didn’t get along.
3. Joyce Summers
Joyce was a great mom to Buffy in BtVS and I always felt that considering what a handful she had for a daughter, she took it in strides. Can’t be easy raising a vampire slayer! She became one of my favorites over the course of the show and her death was really tragic.
4. Snow White/Mary Margaret
Snow missed Emma’s childhood but she is doing everything she can to make up for it now. She clearly is a devoted mom and wife and she loves Emma even though it took her a long time to get to know her.
5. Emma Swan & Regina Mills
I couldn’t pick between Emma and Regina because they’re both great moms for Henry. Emma wasn’t there for Henry when he was smaller but like her mom Snow, she has been making up for the lost time. Now she is a great mom who does everything to protect her kid. And Regina: even though she was the Evil Queen, she has turned a new leaf and is trying to be a good person – including a good mom. Of course, she was always a good mom because she always tried to protect Henry. In the beginning, it was her only redeeming characteristic, but now she’s a great character – complex and fascinating!
