This crush has nothing to do with the actor; in fact, the reason I have a thing for Dom Monaghan now is because he played Merry, not the other way around. Merry was actually my very first crush; I fell for him when my dad first read me The Fellowship of the Ring when I was still a kid (I think I was about eight). Of course, I had no idea that it was a crush at the time, just that I thought he was so cool. What's not to love about Merry- he has a sense of humor, he's very brave, and he's a hobbit. ;)
This crush is an old one, too; I finished the rest of the trilogy when I was in high school (before the movies came out) and his honor and strength are what make him so appealing.
I'm actually rather embarrassed by this crush because I figure people will think I like him because of the actor (especially since he was in that stupid vampire movie and is all popular now). As with Merry and Faramir, I like the character for the character; I'm a Hufflepuff, how could I not like him? Anyone who shows how great Hufflepuffs can be is awesome.
I don't really fancy Data the way I do most other characters; I find his naivety to be absolutely adorable. Going by appearance and how attractive a character is, though, I think Riker would win.
Honestly, it's time for a reread of this series because I can't remember exactly why I like him so much. I think it's his optimism and eccentricity, and that cluelessness that he sometimes has.
OoT was the first Zelda game I ever played and it's still my favorite. Link is just awesome- strong, brave, quiet... and attractive, of course. ;)
Unfortunately I don't have any pictures for him- they haven't made Thief of Time into a movie yet and there's no official art of him (actually, I'm kind of glad of this because I know they'd get him wrong from how I picture him). However, Lobsang is actually my biggest crush (it's starting to feel kind of creepy since he's only about 17 or so, lol). He's the anthropomorphic personification of Time (well, he's Time's son and takes over for her) and he's one of those mischievous young characters that I love so much. He's also the love interest of the character I cosplay, so maybe I'm biased there- I'd make my fiancé dress as him if Josh looked anything like him; unfortunately, Josh looks more like Carrot minus the red hair. Maybe I'll still make him dress like Lobsang anyway. ;)
I have a love/hate crush here. I love younger-Skif; he's so mischievous and funny! However, when he gets older he becomes stupid and won't drop a crush he has on a character I really don't like and who doesn't like him back, and he spends far too much time pining. Ugh.
Elan (the one on the left) is pretty much my old (and one of my favorite) D&D character- he's goofy, not very bright, and oblivious, but he's just adorable and a very nice guy. As for Inkyrius, even though he's (she's? We don't know the gender of Elves in that comic strip- I think of Kyrie as male, though) a very minor character, Kyrie's my favorite. Any Elf who is willing to stand up to an angry and possessed mate with nothing but a stick in order to protect his/her children is awesome in my book. And come on, what's not to love about a green-haired Elven apprentice pastry chef? ;)
Now this is an attractive Legolas- Orlando Bloom has nothing on this wonky-eyed and buck-toothed Elf! ...okay, this is a joke that my friends and I have had for years and years (and it's actually how I know the friend I stole this blog post idea from- I met her in the Bakshi Legolas thread on Gaia, I think). He's obviously not really a crush, but he's my main joke-crush, so I had to include him. ;)
So there's my list of mostly literary characters (what can I say, I'm a bookworm). Please jump on the bandwagon if you'd like; I'd love to see what fictional characters everyone fancies!
