Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Fictional Crushes

15 Mar

I am going to totally have fun with this one!

1. Aragorn II  – The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R Tolkien

Anybody who is introduced into a work of fiction as Strider has got to have something good going for him. And he proves himself to be such a gentleman as well as a nobleman to the end, if a little rough around the edges at times.

2. Mr.Darcy – Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen

He is the character that I loved to hate, which just turned into love by the time I finished the book. Through his arrogance, superior attitude, and aloofness lies a genuine man, wanting to simply win the heart of the lady he loves, but being greatly misunderstood in the process.

3. Mark Darcy – Bridget Jones’ Diary – Helen Fielding

Maybe this one has a lot to do with the portrayal of Mark Darcy by Colin Firth, but there is something about the quintessential Englishman that is so hard to resist.

4. Atticus Finch – To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee

The appeal of Atticus is in his character, and his moral standing – how he teaches his children, and his stand for what he believes in,and his refusal to back down from what he feels is most important to him.

5.Zorro – Created by Jonathan McCulley and serialised in pulp fiction

This may also have a lot to do with Antonio Banderas’ portrayal in the movie, but there is something incredibly attractive about a man who risks it all for what he believes in. It also doesn’t hurt to be good looking, fit, passionate, and a gentleman all rolled into one – it is hard not to have at least a little crush on Zorro.

6. Lestat de Lioncourt –  The Vampire Chronicles -Anne Rice

The original irresistible vampire. Intense, intelligent, sensual, yet vain, insecure, and evil ( he is a vampire after all), what’s not to love? Well, maybe the vampire part, but when he’s also six-foot tall and blonde, I can overlook that part!

7. Guy Montag – Farenheit 451  – Ray Bradbury

Mostly because he has the whole futuristic ‘fireman’ thing going on, even if in this dystopian society his main task is devoted to the burning of books.

8. Noah Calhoun – The Notebook -Nicholas Sparks

Who wouldn’t want a Noah in their life, loving and loyal through the years until the very end. Allie is one lucky woman to have found such a man, despite the many trials and tribulations of their love.

9. Westley  – The Princess Bride – William Golding

Described in the book as being quite a catch, I love a good-looking man in any story.

10.Trip Fontaine – The Virgin Suicides – Jeffrey Eugenides

Everyone needs a ridiculously good-looking, loping, kinda- hippy teenage crush, and Tripp Fontaine is mine.

    They are my faves too – the other ones only made the list mostly on looks ( what I imagine they would look like!) not so much substance! Aragorn is the one I’d probably fall for if he was a real man lol
