Top Ten Tuesday (9): Characters I’m Crushing On

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish to facilitate list sharing. My lists, as usual, are in no real order. This week’s topic:

Top 10 Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also A Fictional Character:

Excuse me while I totally freak out with GIFs because words are escaping me. And you know… that might be okay. Who needs words? And yes, there are more than ten. Sorry, not sorry.

Willem – Just One Day:

Willem, oh Willem. He’s so sweet. I can’t even….

Étienne St. Clair – Anna and the French Kiss:

I kind of love you, Étienne. I was just rereading some Étienne quotes and such and just about died.

Rhett Butler – Gone with the Wind:

Rhett, Rhett, Rhett. He seems like an ass to a lot of people, but he loves Scarlet so much. And Rhett with Bonnie? He would have done anything for them… *swoon* But he’s totes not a pushover either.

Memphis Campbell – The Diviners:

Memphis is such a kind boy in an unfortunate situation. And he’s a handsome, deep-thinking poet. I mean…

Will & Jem – The Infernal Devices:

I love Will. I love Jem too. I want both Will AND Jem to be happy. They’re both so strong and amazing, but where Will is brash (sorry, he is sometimes) Jem is quiet and gentle. They’re both amazing candidates for Tessa. I’ll take who she doesn’t. (DON’T SPOIL IT FOR ME, PLEASE!)

Jace – The Mortal Instruments:

I loved Jace’s character from the get-go. Sure, he’s super cocky, but he can also be incredibly sweet in the intimate moments. I hate that his predicament is so awkward. Cut the guy a break!

Jay Gatsby – The Great Gatsby:

Gatsby is one of those characters I sit there shouting “Let me love you!” at. Daisy should have been ecstatic to have Gatsby. Foolish, foolish Daisy. And foolish Gatsby for loving her so much. Siiigh.

Mr. Darcy – Pride and Prejudice:

I think this goes without saying.

Eli/Along for the Ride & Wes/The Truth About Forever & basically every Dessen boy ever:

Sarah Dessen knows how to write a love interest. Let me tell you.

Oliver – The Last Little Blue Envelope:

Sure, he was blackmailing Ginny, but the boy has reasons! Cut him some slack. He didn’t want to. And then he totally fell in love with Ginny. Forget about Keith, I’m an Oliver girl forever.

Finnick Odair – The Hunger Games:

Finnick is a total heartthrob. He could have any girl he wants, but his love goes only to Annie. Finnick is just a quality person. Oh man.

All right, then. The GIF spam is over.

Okay, okay. Now it’s really over. There are just so many great characters. dakcdsjbfnds Who is on your list?

  1. Haha! I love your gifs. So perfect. 🙂 I completely forgot Mr Darcy when I made my list! It was so hard to pick just 10, but I love your choices.

  2. A lot of these books I haven’t read >< But yay for Jem and Jace! And I can totally understand why you have Will up there as well. In the end, my heart goes out for Jem but Will is a great guy too, just has so much inner turmoil going on. I haven't read the book so I don't know who is chosen in the end, but I always am just afraid it' going to be Will since that's where it all started to begin with so I feel like I need to be there to pick up the pieces for Jem just in case. 😛

    1. I’ll never be able to choose between WIll and Jem. I love them both so much. But honestly, I’ll take whoever Tessa doesn’t. Haha. They’re both wonderful.

      But yeah, I haven’t read the last book yet. I’m sort of putting it off because I don’t want it to end. *shrugs*

  3. Yes, Étienne! ❤
    I can't believe I forgot to put Finnick on my list. -slaps self-
    And Oliver! I totally forgot about him. I love that he was a bad guy, but had his reasons for being a bad guy, redeeming himself.
    Thanks for stopping by my TTT! (:

    1. Someone else who knows who Oliver is! I liked him a lot. Like, sure… he was being not-so-nice, but he was a nice person overall. And compared to Keith, well… I’m biased. I never liked Keith to begin with. Haha.

  4. LOL! Is that Idina Menzel fainting at the top? Love her!

    Also, I love Jace and Will, too. I like Jem a lot, but I can’t say I would swoon for him.

    1. I felt the same way about Jem at first, but grew on him. I think I’ll always crush harder on Will, but Jem is a mighty fine option too.
