I’m really loving all the Top Ten Tuesday topics. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and features various bloggers sharing their top ten list on a topic each Tuesday. The topic is “Top Ten Fictional Characters I Would Crush On if I was a Fictional Character”. So I’ve decided that being a fictional character means that I will be roughly the same age as any of my fictional crushes, considering at the moment they run the gamut. Today’s a top
five six not ten for me(I’m stingy with my fictional crushes).
1. Peeta, from The Hunger Games
Oh man, I could write entire post about how I love Peeta’s characterization. (Oh, wait, I did). I LOVE how he portrays to have typically “feminine” qualities without being effiminate. He bakes. He paints. He’s the kind, quiet soul. He’s the romantic one in the relationship, and I LOVE that! I also think his casting in the movie was perfect.
2. Four, from Divergent
I love how caring and selfless Four can be. His abnegation really shines through at time, but his dauntless is in full-force too.
3. Oliver from The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight
Because a)He’s British, b) He’s funny/charming, c)He’s sweet, and d)He’s smart.
4. Jack from Everneath
Fun fact: I can never remember if it’s Jack or Jake, which probably wouldn’t bode well for a relationship, but I like his character all the same. Definitely crush-worthy.
5. Prince Kai from Cinder
I would have loved to see more of Kai in Cinder! He’s definitely one of my favorite fictional boys.
6. Mr Darcy from Pride & Prejudice
What list could be complete without Mr. Darcy? Classic fictional character crush right there.
7. Faramir from Lord of the Rings
Totally a last minute addition, as I saw his name on a couple of list and thought “yes, of course!” I liked Faramir the minute he came on to the page.
8. Oliver from Going Vintage
Oliver’s a little quirky, I’m a little quirky. I like it.
I thought it would be really easy to get to ten today, but I think the reason I had trouble is because I’m to much of a “what-if”-er to embrace all my fictional crushes. There’s a lot of boys in books that I like as a romantic lead for main characters, but would not PERSONALLY crush on. (Hopefully I’m not the only one with this problem!)
