Favourite characters of 2011

2. Ben Wyatt, Parks and Recreation

Ben Wyatt is honorable. He’s incredible because he wants nothing but the best for Leslie. He’s always seen the power she holds and respects her for her drive and ambitions. And he wants her to succeed. It’s not some fucking cliche power balance of OH MY GOD MY GIRLFRIEND IS MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN I AM. Ben is one of Leslie’s biggest cheerleaders. Also I find it kind of endearing when he moved in with April and Andy and wanted to teach them to be functioning adults. He’s deeply nerdy and passionate and shares this with Leslie which extends to political role playing making out.

Plus, his love of calzones is just fucking cute.
