February 9: Top Ten Fictional Crushes
This statement might well surprise you, Potterhead as I am: I have never had a crush on any character in the Wizarding World. I have, however, had one or two from other fandoms over the years. These are in no particular order (except for the first two!)
1. Jacob Black (The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer)
Jake, Jake, Jake. He’s beautiful, funny and fiercely loyal. What more is there to say? *Taylor Lautner*
2. Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins)
Peeta has the patience of a saint and is inherently selfless and caring.
3. Noah Calhoun (The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks)
If only someone loved me enough to write me a letter a day for a year, and fight for true love. *sigh*
4. Quentin Jacobsen (Paper Towns by John Green)
Q is just the cutest, most innocent guy, I can’t help but love him.
5. Peter Pevensie (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis)
When I was a kid I had a crush on Peter, even though he is overprotective (William Moseley might also have had something to do with it).
6. Alex Rider (Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz)
Another childhood crush, I loved Alex and championed him throughout all of his adventures.
7. Frank Porter (Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson)
Frank is such a good guy: funny, sweet and caring.
8. Lucien (A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas)
As the leading male’s best friend, he’s never going to get the girl, but he’s so snarky and witty that I can’t help but love him.
9. Edward Cullen (The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer)
I know, I know. I have/had a crush on both Jacob and Edward for very different reasons (actually I guess they’re pretty much the same!) Sue me.
10. Michael Moscovitz (The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot)
Michael was the funny, slightly geeky, but fiercely protective lovable guy we all wanted Mia to end up with.
