Fictional Crushes, and what they say about us...

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?

Ikuto (Shugo Chara)

My pattern...Twins... Mischievous personalities, and males with animal ears. Oh my. Red hair, Black hair, and the occasional bleach blond.
Momiji is so adorible!
Peter Pan
The Doctor
Robin Hood (BBC's Show)
Mr. Darcy
Voldermort (AVPM)

I have found that I have a thing for men who strike the image of confidance and pride. While this may just be a facade and they may not be as cocky as they seem to be, that desire for adventure, to such the marrow out of life, that spark in their eye is the sexiest thing a man can have. Thus these are the men who make me melt at the mere mention of their names.
Voldemort from AVPM rules! But I loved Quirrel too :)
Put them together and my heart practically stops beating.

Not really.
I think you should know, your post is the reason I'm watching AVPM right now... (I looked up what AVPM was and it just went on from there) :D
1. Abe Sapien (Hellboy)
2. Daniel Jackson (Stargate SG-1)
3. Stark (Farscape)
4. Marius de Romanus (Anne Rice, The Vampire Chronicles)
5. Remus Lupin (Harry Potter)
6. Glitch (Tin Man) (My liking for Glitch could be because he's played by Alan Cumming, heh)
7. Odo (Star Trek Deep Space Nine)

Generally leptosome, intelligent guys who are unmistakeably odd. And this has definitely manifested itself in my IRL crushes. I think what really gets me though, is when they show emotion, it's very heart warming and you know it's sincere.

[Also, I was gonna add Spock (not this Spock), but it feels rather bandwagon-ish. . .whatever].
STARK!!! I love him too.
1. Fred, not George, Weasley. (Harry Potter)
2. Q. (Paper Towns)
3. Draco. (Harry Potter)
4. The Doctor
5. Captian Jack Harkness. (Torchwood)
6. Wesley Crusher (Star Trek, TNG)

The only pattern I see is Nerd.
1. Dexter from This Lullaby
2. Q from Paper Towns
3. Craig Gilner from It's Kind of A Funny Story

I think I've realized that I always have crushes on the kind of awkward and emotional guys, that are pretty much quite big nerds. They have this nice and cozy feeling for me.
Fred and George(HP)
Remus Lupin(HP)
James Potter(HP)
Sam Roth(Shiver)
Tony DiNozzo(NCIS)

Hmmm I seem to have a thing for jokesters with sensitives souls :).
Hmmm. I feel like I'll find out something about myself that I don't necessarily want to know if I examine my list too closely, but here we go.

Marquis de Carabas (Neverwhere)
Benjamin Nab (The Good Thief)
Mr. Darcy (P&P)
Severus Snape (Harry Potter)
Crowley (Good Omens)
Captain Barbossa (Pirates of the Caribbean)
Owen Armstrong (Just Listen)

All of my fictional crushes are extremely powerful men. They're all very intelligent, very strong, very wealthy, or very malicious. With few exceptions, they're brimming with confidence and pride. Not a one could be described as emotionally open.
