Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character

1. Cricket Bell from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: Intelligent with cute sticky-uppy hair.  He also has a bedroom window within talking distance of Lola’s.

2. Hilary (Jingle) from Pat of Silver Bush by L. M. Montgomery: Introspective, caring, and loyal.  He’s smart and wants to be an architect to build Pat her dream house.

3. Mamoru from Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi: He’s a king with magical powers who wants nothing more than to protect his princess.

4. Garth from Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey: Sturdy, brave, and caring.  He climbs a tree to talk to Tess when she’s scared.

5. Char from Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine: It’s been awhile since I read this, but I remember Char as spontaneous, funny, and kind.

6. Faramir from The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien: The brave and noble younger brother who prefers learning to war.

7. Finn from Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood:  His family owns a bookstore, and the feather scene is probably one of the most romantic things I’ve ever read.  (Compare to the glory scene in Unearthly.)

8. Jack from Water Song by Suzanne Weyn: Jack actually has a bit of presumptuous attitude I might not like in real life, but watching his interactions with and growing affections for Emma is pretty fun!

9. Jase from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick:  Part of a large family, he’s a protective and caring older brother, which I think is attractive.

10. Rhys from The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine: A clever and protective sorcerer.

      For some reason, I always think of Faramir as less “taken,” perhaps because his romance happens at the end the book. Aragorn has great qualities, too, though.


    • Briana says:

      I had a bit of trouble getting through the beginning of Born Wicked because I didn’t love the main character, but she really grows and I was a huge fan of her and the book by the end!

    Wow, I haven’t read any of those books… I am missing out it seems! I am really ashamed that I haven’t read Lord of the Rings. I love fantasy, but I have never got around to reading ’em, even though I’ve started them several times. I need to fix that.

    Now for my list! I will not stick to just books, deal with it:

    1. Fox from the Dark Knight Movies
    2. Dr. Cameron McCarthey from Dolphin Tale
    3. Carter from The Bucket List
    4. God from Bruce Almighty
    5. Sam from Unleashed
    6. Detectice Lt. William Somerset from Se7en
    7. Ellis Boyd ‘Red’ Redding from The Shawshank Redemption

    I think that about covers it. All movies. The observant among you will get the theme. 🙂

        I have been talking about reading Lord of the Rings since 3rd grade. I got halfway through The Hobbit once! That must count for something.

        Morgan Freeman is correct! I’d give up my heterosexual existence for that man, I’d pay unimaginable prices to have him read me the phone book, I will do anything for my God.

        This has gotten weird, hasn’t it?

    Cricket ❤
    And I can't believe I forgot about Jase. I love how he's so good with his little siblings, and he's so… nice… which sounds totally lame when I say it like that, but you get the impression that he's genuinely, solidly a good guy, and that he'll stick by his girl come what may. 🙂


    • Briana says:

      I know what you mean! You’d definitely want to date a nice person, but that’s also the adjective you use when you can’t think of a more interesting thing to say about someone!


    • Briana says:

      Faramir is definitely one of my favorite characters. I’m so disappointed they thought they needed to change his personalty in the movies.
