Long story short, I was reading the other day, when a few things occurred to me. The first, being that I seem to have a pretty decently sized list of Fictional Crushes. The second, being that there must be a logical reason why I like these fantastical men. And that maybe, by looking into who these characters are, I can figure out...something...
1. Aragorn (LotR)
2. Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games trilogy)
3. Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
4. Remus Lupin (Harry Potter)
5. Neville Longbottom (Harry Potter)
6. Owen (Just Listen)
7. Alcide Hervaux (The Sookie Stackhouse books)
After a bit of thought, I've come to the conclusion that I like softies, with rough around the edges exteriors. I like brown hair, and guys who are either a.) surprisingly strong, or b.) exceptionally sarcastic. Also, in terms of literature, I'm easily won over when a character is willing to fight to the death for someone...
Anyway, what are your fictional crushes? And what patterns can you find?
