Whiny Little Bitches (WLB)

On each show I watch (and damn if there aren’t a ridiculous number of them) there is at least one character I like to call the WLB of the show. This is the character that you just want to punch in the face for being such an idiot and crying about it.

For example: Scandal’s WLB is President Fitzgerald; Vampire Diaries has both Elena Gilbert and Stefan Salvatore; Teen Wolf has Scott McCall; Pretty Little Liars has, well, the entire cast; Covert Affairs has Annie Walker; etc., etc.

These are the characters that pull down the show because they don’t stop being completely self-involved. The fact that they are the lead character in some cases doesn’t matter at all. They just constantly cry a tune of woe-is-me and ignore everything else going on, making matters worse for everyone around them.

When I find myself getting more irritated than enjoying a show because of WLBs I tend to drop the show and read the fic associated with the show that has like-minded opinions. (I.E. reading HP fic that is hard on Ron, Ginny, and Molly.)
