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.

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

  2. 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 😉
