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

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)

“In vain I have struggled.  It will not do.  My feelings will not be repressed.  You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden (The Dresden Files)

“I love you.” Why it worked right then, why the webbing of my godmother’s spell frayed as though the words had been an open flame, I don’t know. I haven’t found any explanation for it. There aren’t any magical words, really. The words just hold the magic. They give it a shape and a form, they make it useful, describe the images within. I’ll say this, though: Some words have a power that has nothing to do with supernatural forces. They resound in the heart and mind, they live long after the sounds of them have died away, they echo in the heart and the soul. They have power, and that power is very real. Those three words are good ones.”

R (Warm Bodies)

“I crush her against me. I want to be part of her. Not just inside her but all around her. I want our rib cages to crack open and our hearts to migrate and merge. I want our cells to braid together like living thread.”

The Fault in Our Stars

Augustus Waters (The Fault in Our Stars)

“I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

Westley (The Princess Bride)

“I’ve been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn’t listen. Every time you said ‘Farm Boy do this’ you thought I was answering ‘As you wish’ but that’s only because you were hearing wrong. ‘I love you’ was what it was, but you never heard.”

Tristan Thorn (Stardust)

“He wondered how it could have taken him so long to realize he cared for her, and he told her so, and she called him an idiot, and he declared that it was the finest thing that ever a man had been called.”

Graceling

Prince Po (Graceling)

“I know you don’t want this, Katsa. But I can’t help myself. The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost. I’m afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you’ll… oh, I don’t know, throw me into the fire. Or more likely, refuse me. Or worst of all, despise me,” he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face. His face dropping into his hands. “I love you,” he said. “You’re more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be. And I’ve made you cry; and there I’ll stop.”

Professor Severus Snape (Harry Potter)

“Always”

Benedick (Much Ado About Nothing)

I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that
strange?

Chime

Eldric (Chime)

“Should I ever again sink into illness, I’m sure I’ll remember Eldric. I’ll remember he cared for me. I’ll remember that someone had at least taken the time to touch my face.”

  1. I LOVE that you included a quote from each character, even if I totally can’t get behind a Snape crush. To each her own!
