The 12 Boys of Degrassi

Day 2 of our celebration of the spirit of Degrassi Boys brings us....

♥Peter♥!

Though he first came into our lives as the spoiled son-of-a-principal who showed everyone Manny's boobs and was preeetty much responsible for Sean going to jail, Peter has redeemed himself in fits and starts over the years. There was that time he emotionally supported Darcy through the aftermath of her rape, the way he was there for Emma when she struggled with an eating disorder... and of course, what one could argue was his most impressive act of selflessness: standing by Riley and keeping a secret after Riley misunderstood their friendship and tried to kiss him.

Plus there was that whole thing where he met his little sister and kissed her little baby head:

Look at him kiss that baby's head! He's such a sweet little baby-head-kisser! It's not fair that Peter kept losing girlfriends to other continents (and meth habits), but it's always nice to see him looking so contented and sage-like behind the counter at the Dot.
