Ten Five Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character
The thing is I'm quite fussy over male fictional characters. The ones who are supposed to be the attractive, poster boy one I never like. I really go for the geeky, underdog male characters and sadly there aren't a lot of them in fiction. I also have to do my little bit of cheating and go for male characters in TV/film as well.
So I really have a list of five rather than ten:
1) Simon Lewis
Vampire or human I loved Simon Lewis. He's a brave fighter with hardly any skills but when he found about the hidden demonic world around him he decided to stick by Clary and the verbally abusive Jace and try to help out when he could. He was the geeky and loyal best friend whose love for Clary was doomed to be unrequited.
2) Ron Weasley
Hermione had the brains. Harry had the destiny. And poor Ron was constantly overshadowed by them both, poor and awkward but he was a committed, loyal friend who never gave up on Harry and always stuck by him to battle Voldemort. His talents in chess helped Harry get through the chessboard in the first book. There were a lot of people around Ron who had already done so well and while he had his skills he constantly felt they would go unnoticed because of his older brothers and his two best friends.
3) Nathan Caulfield
Nathan was my favourite boy and LI out of Kody Keplinger's novels. The Duff had Wesley Rush who was a complete douche and play boy, someone who wasn't at all attractive. Shut Out had Cash Sterling who was nicer than Wesley but still didn't capture my interests. And then A Midsummer's Nightmare came out. Ironically not my favourite but had my favourite male character: Nathan Caulfield. Exactly what I love to see in a male character, especially a LI. He was a geeky, friendly guy who was very close to his family and protective over his little sister. He was used by the female protagonist Whitley and treated like dirt but he was still ready to forgive and help. I thought he was a terrific character and someone I would definitely have a crush on if I was a fictional character. He was just so genuine and there was nothing rude or bad mannered about him. Just a really nice guy. All I need.
A comical best friend and protector to Meghan Chase the female protagonist of the Iron Fey series. Known to her as Robbie Goodfell he is actually the fairy known as Robin Goodfellow, a mischievous troublemaker but a loyal friend who, although reluctantly, helps Meghan in the search to find her little brother. He's the comical, breath of fresh air character that you need when things start getting too serious.
Yeah, he may be prone to a lot of swearing but Cas is a brave ghost hunter who chose to do this. Travelling around with his mother all the time Cas has never really had time for relationships, romantically or platonically. But when he teams up with telepathic Thomas and Queen Bee Carmel to stop a murderous ghost nicknamed Anna Dressed in Blood he grows into a loyal friend who is worried about his friends dying or getting hurt but comes to accept them as allies, ones that could help as well. Cas is always ready to face things, even when they start to get pretty terrifying for him.
Who would you pick as a book crush?
