Added DiffLines:

* Swedish poet ''Edith Södergran'' seems to have acknowledged herself to be like this in a good number of poems. The poem ''Vierge Moderne'' from 1918 is an open offender in this respect.

** Teenager Lily Evans seems to be interpreted this way by the fans, especially in [[JerkJock James Potter's]] presence.

to:

** Teenager Lily Evans Definitely this with Ron Weasley. While the Golden Trio all have their insecurities, Ron's and Hermione's insecurities end up influencing one another, especially with how they feel with one another. Hermione often becomes annoyed or upset with Ron, yet becomes jealous when another girl shows interest in him. The sixth book definitely plays this up.
** While not fully well-known (due to being post-mortem characters), this
seems to be interpreted this way by the fans, especially in [[JerkJock how Lily Evans was with her future husband, James Potter's]] presence.Potter. Initially, she did not like him very much, thinking him of a showoff while also not liking him because of the fights he had with her friend [[spoiler: Severus Snape.]] Yet, there were some hints of this. Harry sees a memory of back when they were in Hogwarts; With James winning a Quidditch game and him being tossed in the air, all while Lily looks at the specactle rolling her eyes yet smiling as well. It would also explain how she went from disliking him in fifth year to dating in seventh year.

* ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' is [[InsufferableGenius a real pain in the arse]]--except with [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Watson.]] When he's wounded, cue him being worried for his friend.
** [[NotSoStoic "Are you hurt, Watson? For God's sake, say that you're not hurt!"]]
** Oh, and, whatever you do DON'T trip off those [[BigBrotherInstinct protective instincts]] like Evans.
** "By the Lord, it is well for you. If you had killed Watson, you would not have gotten out of this room alive."

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' gives us a rare male version: [[{{Badass}} Sandor]] [[{{Jerkass}} Clegane]]. He's of the titanically, emotionally screwed-up and repressed variety thanks to his [[AbusiveParents absolutely]] [[BigBrotherBully horrendous]] [[ConditionedToAcceptHorror childhood]]. As a result, he's no stranger to using [[BloodKnight frustration and rage to lash out and kill or maim others]] with under a StrawNihilist, TheStoic exterior. But, that he could still find it in himself to [[MoralityPet care about two specific others]]? [[KnightInSourArmor Knocked him for six]]. Granted, he could [[TheCynic no more express]] ''how'' to care healthily than fly thanks to acute lack of practice [[spoiler: (neither Sansa nor Arya left unscathed by his worry over them--for all they both would have wound up in far worse shape without him)]]. However, it's still both his triumph and tragedy that he ''could'' care: despite his father's best efforts to turn him into a [[TheBrute dehumanised attack dog]] like his brother, the little boy who could care for others is still somewhere in there. [[EvenEvilHasStandards And, had always made his anger and disappointment with world that much hotter, in fact]]. [[TheAlcoholic Sadly, also the anger at himself]] for not living up to [[NobleDemon ideals he always denied he could have]].
