If you will practice being fictional for a while, you will understand that fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats. ~Richard Bach
One of the joys of reading is being able to fall in love with the characters that come along and accidentally find a place in your heart. It’s not often that I crush on fictional characters but when I do fall in love with a character, it’s groundbreaking. So many elements have to come together for me to even see the characters come to life in my eyes. When these elements meld effortlessly, sparks fly.
Character development is so important to me. When it’s done right, I often find it hard not to care about the characters. Since we’re discussing crushes, I can’t help but swoon over the guy(s) that captures my heart. I love reading about complex characters, they have so much depth. When I enjoy reading about their struggles and triumphs, it makes them more endearing to me.
Character description is also important. I’ll be honest and say I love tall, dark, and handsome descriptions. Add the bad boy element to the character on top of great character development and I’m a goner. There are so many characters with this description but again when that character is created to utter perfection (Not talking about him being perfect); he leaves quite a memorable impression.
So, what fictional character knocks my socks off? When it comes down to it, it’s the characters that I love reading their stories over and over again. Oh and every time, I continue to be reminded why I fell in love with that character.
Jericho Barrons (Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning) – This is how I picture Barrons. He’s the ultimate bad boy. He has so many layers to him that I can’t wrap my head around it sometimes. Just to make it simple as to why this man is my fictional crush, I’ll just say I’m obsessed! That says it all.
I could name more fictional crushes but none even compare to Barrons. If you have not read this series, I would highly recommend it. But keep in mind that it is an adult series (You are warned).
Other fictional crushes:
Jace Wayland (Mortal Instruments)
Bones (Night Huntress Series)
Patch Cipriano (Hush, Hush)
Dageus MacKeltar (Dark Highlander)
Edward Cullen (Twilight Saga)
