Top 10 Favorite Fictional Crushes:

1:   Dean Winchester.  I love this character.  Yeah, he’s pretty, whatever.  But the vulnerable HUMOR is what gets me every time.  And I too love pie.
2:   The 10th Doctor.  A lot of people like Matt Smith better, but Tennant’s Doctor will always be my favorite.  (Sidenote: My boyfriend last Halloween went as the 10th Doctor, and that was when I knew I loved him. ….I wish I was kidding more than I am.)
3:   Peter Wiggin. 
To clarify, not the teenage version in “Ender’s Game” where he’s a homicidal jerk.  But as the character develops in the Shadow-ing sequels, the complexity of his character is fascinating to me.  I honestly end up liking him more than Ender.
4:   Michael Fassbender’s Young Magneto.  I always liked Magneto and the sort of “moral flexibility” involved in the character, but the flashback to young Magneto totally sold me.  Plus, Fassbender is amazing anyway (talent, I don’t just drool over pretty).
5:   Madmartigan.  I started early with the whole bad-boys-with-comedic-timing thing, apparently.  I watched “Willow” probably once a week as a kid, not just because of Madmartigan, but he was definitely my favorite.  I also vaguely remember being jealous of his hair.
6:   Galcon.  Okay, so listing one of my own book characters is probably cheating, but still.  I created Galcon during a time when I’d pretty much given up on men, and it’s through him that I sorted out what I wanted.  (Tip:  When in doubt, create your perfect crush.)
7:   Henry Gondorff.  If you haven’t seen “The Sting,” go fix that right now.  This is my favorite Paul Newman role.  Who doesn’t love a smart-ass with a lot of heart?
8:   Sirius Black.  There’s a point at which he gets kind of whiny in the books (I can’t even remember which one), but before that I really liked his character’s nobility.
9:   Lagertha, from Vikings.  Girl crush? Hero-worship? I just want my hair like that some days?  I don’t know.  But it’s an awesome character.
10: Robin Hood, the Fox.   I have no real defense for this one.  He was my first childhood crush, however, and so has to be listed.

    So how often does Sirius Black horse around and whinny? I don’t mean to stirrup trouble, or saddle you with puny humor.

    Awesome choices. (I thought I was the only person with a major crush on Robin Hood…) Fassbender’s Magneto, Tennant’s Doctor and Sirius Black – all beautiful, beautiful men 😉
