- The obvious ones, I've gotta give it up to all of my Jane Austen boys EXCEPT for Edmund. (I even kinda like Wickham and Willoughby, the rogues!) I won'd go into my anti-Edmund-ness here, but suffice it to say that EVERY OTHER hero in JA has been the object of my schoolgirl *ahem, yes...just school girl...you buy that? fancies.
- I really like the way Mercy and Adam are from the Mercedes Thompson books, so he gets points; he's a great Alpha mail without the jerk qualities. You can tell he just really cares, but also he's a werewolf, so he's certainly not going to cave. ♥
- Lord Maccon (do I need to say more, J?) from Soulless. Oh, Lord Maccon.
- William AND Hakim from Emma by Kaoru Mori; I love both of these characters, and even though it's clear who she'll end up with, a piece of me was secretly rooting for a little Victorian side-action with Hakim. Having illustrations of what they look like certainly helped (mmm, Hakim).
- Kvothe from The Name of the Wind; I can't help it, I love the cocky little bastard.
- Gogu from Wildwood Dancing; I don't care if he was a frog most of the time, I adored him. Still do.
- Peeta and Gale; I'm not choosing sides here, people. Polygamy gets my vote, I like them both (but I do have to give ever the slightest edge to Peeta for his open devotion).
- Henry from The Time Traveler's Wife. My type. 'nough said.
- Valek from Poison Study (and the other Study books). Mmm, Valek. So what if he's an assassin and he has a past.
- Jacob Jankowski from Water for Elephants; I loved his voice, I loved being inside his head. He may have been elderly when the story takes place, but he's still crush-worthy, as his past reveals.
- Zane from Pretties. :(
- Constantine from Sunshine. There is just something about him, aside from the obvious. He really stuck in my head.
- James from A Certain Slant of Light; maybe it's just that he was from a different time, when there were manners, but I just really like how he is
- George from the Song of the Lioness series. George may have been my first ever literary crush, and as the king of the Rogue Court (but with an honest to goodness heart and brain), I think he set the tone for things to come.
- Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables; If George wasn't the first crush, Gilbert was. Aided by the miniseries Gilbert. ♥
There you have it, folks. My lit crushes. JG had the right idea, I think.
Alright, now for the goodies. You may have noticed a certain fabtastic post earlier in the day? Well, Charlotte did such a good job on that, and JGs post has put me in the loving spirit, so I am going to send some mystery love someone's way. You want some mystery love? I promise the mystery isn't something you'll have to make a surreptitious doctor's visit for... ;)
Any♥s, if you would like a chance to get your mystery love on, it's simple:
- leave some love for Charlotte on the fabtastic post
- tell me and JG your biggest literary crush, either here in the comments or make your own post and give me the link
- leave me a way to contact you.
It will end when it ends.
EDIT: Winner will be announced 3/1
HAPPY ♥DAY, MY LOVELIES!!!
