Literary Crushes

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

After reading A Tale of Two Cities, I must add Sydney Carton to the long, ever-growing list.

I got a massive crush on Mercutio after actually watching the play.

I got Mercutio from reading it, and then the first production I saw of it had an extremely pretty actor who pushed me over into adding Benvolio to the list :P

Like I said before, the manga version makes Benben adorable. And Mercutio in it is rather lovely as well. :wink:

Remus Lupin- HP
Sirius Black- HP
Courfeyrac- Les Mis
Combeferre- Les Mis
Enjolras- Les Mis
Prouvaire- Les Mis
Bahorel- Les Mis
Joly- Les Mis
Feuilly- Les Mis (As you can see, I have a Ami problem)

Um, Aliena from Pillars of the Earth :oops: :oops: :oops:
And maybe, Jack from Pillars of the Earth
Definitely Grantaire and Enjolras. Didn't really pay too much attention to the others :P
And probably Éponine
Winston Smith from 1984
Hermione Jean Granger
Harry Potter

This list went from wierd to normal to weird again...
Everyone who complains that the movie is too long hasn't read the book.

I'm embarrassed about this list, but since the barricaders here understand, well:

Enjolras- Les Miz
Valjean- Les Miz
Javert- Les Miz
Marius- Les Miz
ALL of the Les Amis- Les Miz
Erik- Phantom
Raoul- Phantom
Neville C.- The Secret Garden

Yes, I am this weird... and, well, this goes on and on... :D
Whenever I see either Roy, 'Pony, Enjy, Mari, Fantine, Comb, Couf, Jehan, Joly, and Gav, I fangirl... too much. (Do you guys know who Roy is? Well, if you barricaders go online to the new performers, you might know... :D)

Reading Auslander again reminded me of how much I adore Piotr Bruck. I know that the book's really dark and crap, but dear god I love him. I've also been reading my Narnia collection again and just...Peter and Edmund. *squee*

By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains fall out.
