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.

Rodrigo, Marquis de Posa from Schiller's Don Carlos.

I mean, there's a lot of others, but he's the best. Probably better known as Rodrigo in Verdi's Don Carlo, but the Schiller play is a thousand times better.
Here day embraces night, and says: I will die with you and you will be reborn with me. From the heavy embrace of all desolations springs faith.

The real name of devotion is disinterestedness.

I liked Brad Pitt's Louis. He had such nice hair.

I liked Louis well enough in Interview, but it wasn't until the modern day bits of The Vampire Lestat where they meet up again that he really pulled forward as the favorite.

Ok, new fictional crush *kicks Sorel out of the limelight*

Milo Thatch.
He's a multilingual, adorable nerd who ends up becoming Prince of fucking Atlantis.


Oh my God...Milo. Yes, how could I forget that?

I know, I'm a little old for this but Jim Hawkins is another cartoon character who *should* exist in real life if this universe was fair.




Jimbo! Yes, Treasure Planet is up there on my favourite Disney films of all time.

I had gone through the Pride and Prejudice/Darcy phase when I was about 13 but now I'm not really into it. But I just watched Austen's Emma the other day (one of the few Austen books I hadn't read) and preferred it so much to P&P. New literary crush: George Knightley.
I had gone through the Rochester phase as well though now it has mostly faded away.
For the record, Raoul is still wretching my soul.
Also I finished the book and the pity/hatred mixture for Erik has grown even more in both its aspects.
Then I saw their trembling features warp and, gradually,
Their foreheads turn pale and dissolve in front of me,
And everyone, like a stream that flows into a sea,
Became completely lost in a dark immensity.

Seeing as Rose of Versailles is actually drowning me with feels right now, I have more fictional crushes.
André Grandier, because he is a fucking puppy and Oscar herself. I don't give a crap that she's female, she's awesome.

Have you listened to Steve Barton Liv? He has a gorgeous voice and was gorgeous looking too.

(I really like Erik as a character, but I don't think I would as a person. Same as Enjolras really)

Toby-without-a-last-name. From Sweeney. He's so adorable. Like, seriously.

His name in the script for the stage show is Tobias Ragg... but I don't think any production mentions his last name or refers to him as anything other than "Toby."

And the script took that name right out of the book that Sweeney Todd is based on: The String of Pearls. But Tobias Ragg of the book, although at one point Todd's assistant, isn't really the Toby of the musical.

So I apparently might have developed a crush on Stephen Maturin without even reading a single one of the books that feature him. That's got to be anew low

Yes, but Paul Bettany.

(Though this is a crime and you should read the books. The film is nothing compared to the actual Aubreyad.)

This is not a low, any crush on Stephen Maturin is a good crush.

On the other hand, read the books!
