Stephanie Louise | 13 comments Ok, we've all had a secret crush on a fictional character at some point...here's your space to spill all!

I'll start...
There's the obvious Edward Cullen from the Twilight saga Twilight (Twilight, #1) by Stephenie Meyer and also, for some reason, Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird... To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee ....the secret's out!

Post your favourite fictional crushes here :)

Some of my crushes are romantic and some are "too hot to handle" but those Weasley twins are just plain fun and cute!

Ayesha (3livelaughlovelearn3) | 1 comments Oh dear, oh dear. This topic is probably A Very Bad Idea to Get Me Started On. Ha. Oh, hey, Tracy, Glibert Blythe was my first ever fictional crush, too! :) Okay, here goes, in the order that they happen to come to mind --

** Layne (Can't think of his last name! -sadface-) Black Dust Mambo and the Hoodoo series, Adrian Phoenix.

** Jace Wayland/Lightwood/Herondale (Who knows what name he decided to keep in the end? :D) from City of Bones and the rest of The Mortal Instrument series, Cassandra Clare.

** Stefano Tarconti, Wings of the Falcon, Barbra Michaels. (You've never heard of it, you say? That's just tragic, and you need to look it up! :D)

** Prince Brigan, Fire, Kristin Cashore.

** Fitzwilliam Darcy, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen.

** John Thornton, North and South, Elizabeth Gaskell.

** Frederick Wentworth, Persuasion, also Jane Austen.

** William Herondale, Clockwork Angel and the rest of the Infernal Devices series, also Cassandra Clare.

** Jason Sheperd, Firespell and the rest of the Dark Elite series, Chloe Neill.

** Archer Cross, Hex Hall series, Rachel Hawkins.

** Christophe Reynard, Strange Angels series, Lili St. Crow.

** Shane Collins, Morganville Vampires series, Rachel Caine.

** Nash Hudson, Soul Screamers series, Rachel Vincent.

** Gabriel (Doesn't Have a Last Name?), Blood and Chocolate, Annette Curtis Klause.

I'm sure there're more, but these are the most, most sexilicious! xoxoxo

message 22: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Louise | 13 comments I forgot to mention Westley from The Princess Bride....I love that scene when you expect a kiss and they practically throw themselves onto one another... 'As you wish...', sighhh...I love that name; Westley haha...


message 23: by Roshini (new)

Roshini | 243 comments I have quite a few but the ones that pop into my head right now are Wes from The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen and Guy from Willow by Julia Hoban


message 24: by Noelia (new)

Noelia (nole_) I have a HUGE crush on Jace from the Mortal Instruments series, but I can't forget Ian from The Host and Brigan from Fire.


message 25: by Lani (new)

Lani (crahfty) | 253 comments I have to add V from Lover Unbound. I'm only halfway through the book, but he already has me sucked in.

message 27: by Arphaxad (last edited Dec 08, 2010 08:05AM) (new)

Arphaxad | 335 comments Seconded with great enthusiasm:

-Jace Wayland from the Mortal Instruments. I can't help it; his sarcasm is irresistible :)

-Damon from the Vampire Diaries: ditto.
Although this is probably equally due to the TV series, since Ian Somerhalder is without doubt the most handsome man I've ever seen...

-Brigan from Fire :)

Others worthy of mention/copious amounts of daydreaming:

-Adam from the Mercy Thompson books

-Raven from The Raging Quiet


Ahh, a work break well spent! :D

message 29: by Becca (new)

Becca | 1608 comments Hahaha! Marcus deserves a second spot? I guess I need to finish the series cause he hasn't really caught my fancy yet. I don't usually go for red hair or guys who don't talk to you for months on end.


message 30: by Jaimie (new)

Jaimie (jaimier) | 1275 comments Oh Marcus Flutie deserves two spots - he is damn sexy. I am so not into red heads normally but I don't really see him with red red hair - more rust colored. Anyways he is just yummy and if he were a real person I would totally stalk him.


message 31: by Wendy F (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) Oh lord, okay this is pretty much in order...

Jamie Fraser from Outlander

I would so help you stalk him Jaimie! There's just something about a bad boy turned good that works for me...

Stephanie Louise | 13 comments The results are in!

Surprisingly Jace Wayland from City of Bones-The Mortal Instruments series- stole the top spot with the most posts from you all...step aside Edward Cullen! There seems to be a new (bad) boy in town!

See who made runner up and what spot Edward Cullen finished at...

Heidi (Yup. Still here.) Is it my imagination or do we have two threads running with this similar theme????

Wendy F (blessedwannab) It's not your imagination. I actually copy/pasted my original email from one thread to the other.

Outlander has been on my to-read list for quite some time now but somehow I found myself reluctant to actually start reading it. But since your're begging... ;-)


message 39: by Wendy F (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) I am Begging!!! It's a book/series that I can read over and over and every time I love the characters (Jamie) even more.


message 40: by Jessica (new)

Jessica That sounds really good! I'll move it to the top of my to-read list.


message 41: by Wendy F (new)

Wendy F (blessedwannab) I get so excited when someone reads it, haha. You'll have to email me your thoughts.
