and.. Brom Bones from sleepy hollow.. cause he was so BAD. 

 

and the robert jordan from FWTBT, cause a man who can blow things up is always sorta sexy. 

 

 

 

 

That reminds me, I had a 'crush' on Beethoven through out high school.  Or, at least my idea of him.  All brilliant and tragic.  Sex with him would have been pretty dumb, though, considering how he went blind.

Ah.... 13..... at 13 I was most disappointed that Tolkien never gave Frodo a chance at romance.  So, I guess I would need to add him to my list of characters.  Maybe the right hobbit lass could have helped ease his pain.  OK, now I'm embarrassed!

LOL, funny topic. I had an enormous crush on Sherlock Holmes. What can I say, I was drawn to cold distant intellectual men.

Oh, Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind is the first that comes to mind for me. innocent.gif

I came to say Ranger from the Stephanie Plum series, too. 

 

Oh, yes.  Ranger all day and night.

post #26 of 65

I'd like to teach Eragon a thing or two.

 

I could also offer some comfort to poor Jacob or Twilight fame.

 

I don't usually have a thing for younger men and I'll prove it by confessing my feelings for Col. Brandon.

 

Team Ranger all the way!

 

Jamie will always be my number one

Michael Curry from The Witching Hour. I am glad they never made a movie of it because any actor would just fall short of my picture of him. Mmmm.

 

I definitely like Snape, but it's really Alan Rickman, so that doesn't count. I don't think my husband knows what to make of my noises of glee when I see him on the screen.

 

I have feelings for Ben Franklin but not that kind. Would love to know him. Feel like I do, through his writings. The Indigo Girls have a song about Virginia Woolf, some lyrics are:

 

They published your diary

And that's how I got to know you

Key to a room of your own and a mind without end

And here's a young girl

With a kind of a telephone line through time

The voice at the other end calls like a long lost friend

 

But when I hear it I think of Ben Franklin and how he managed a sort of immortality (the song talks about that too) by managing to put his person in his writings. He doesn't feel distant in time, he feels like he could just walk through the door anytime.

 

Anyway enough about that... I also see the point about King Arthur from Mists of Avalon. Rita Mae Brown has some hot characters, I like Mars from High Hearts.

The only one I can think of is Miles Vorkosigan, from Lois McMaster-Bujold's "The Vorkosigan Saga". It's possible that this means there's something wrong with me...and I probably couldn't stand him in real life, but I could be wrong.

 

I don't get the Snape/Alan Rickman thing. He does absolutely nothing for me.

It was the fan fiction that did it for me, not particularly the Potter movie, and I didn't discover fan fiction  (and that was here at MDC), until after Half Blood Prince book came out.  I already adored Rickman from his earlier movies.  So for the longest time after that, in my mind, Snape looked like the Sheriff of Nottingham.

I have SO been looking for a way to get DH to stop suggesting Brom as a name for the newbie. I may have just been able to convince him with your "so BAD".

Well. Yeah. Did I mention my reaction to him is glee? Last time I watched Robin Hood I was bouncing up and down with glee watching his temper tantrums.

 

Can't explain it. Sorry. I don't actually like men who throw temper tantrums. At all. Even a little. There is something about this ACTOR doing it so well that just ... glee!!!!!!

Yeah - that's the thing I don't really get. I don't find Snape attractive, anyway - but I don't find Alan Rickman attractive, either. Maybe his role of Hans in Die Hard made a permanent imprint on me. :)

Recently I watched a version of Wuthering Heights from the BBC (early 90's I think?)  that did not play down Heathcliff's violent, sadistic side.  So often in film that character is given too much charisma.  Olivier's Heathcliff was closer to my adolescent vision of Heathcliff, and if I were 17 I would have added him to my list.  But now, as a grown woman, I really find the character almost repulsive (that's not a literary criticism-- I still love the book!)  I just mean that seeing him depicted as he was really written, I find now that I have absolutely no attraction anymore to Heathcliff, and that his relationship with Cathy is more than a little dysfunctional and abusive.  Now, even though Linton was still a wuss, I find myself feeling sorry for him, that Cathy abused him horribly. 

 

Funny how viewpoints can change so dramatically over the years.....

 

I get the Alan Rickman/Snape thing.  I've always had something of a thing for men who are not traditionally handsome.  As an actor he is one of my favorites and I always enjoy seeing him onscreen.  And his Snape is a vast improvement over my image of the character from the series.  Rickman's Snape is..... awesome.  Awesome in a quiet, mysterious, complicated kind of way.  Yes, even.... sexy, but not overtly.  

 

Though not a literary character, the comment about your dh reminded me of my quiet lust for James McAvoy.  Recently I saw him in Becoming Jane.  (Quiet, inner squeal.)  I am *so* to old for this.....

Oh golly, James McCovy.  First saw him in Dune.  Fast, graceful, and those eyes. 

 

Anyway.

Ugh!! You're right. That role was NOT attractive. At all. Ick. Yuck.

 

Still, brilliantly played by the actor. He made us all hate him.

In the books, I couldn't get the vision of Homer Simpson's boss out of my head for Snape's character, but with black hair and a robe.  Definitely not attractive in the books.

Okay - I don't find Alan Rickman's Snape attractive, but I will admit he's WAY hotter than my mental image from the books...not a huge accomplishment, admittedly.

Definitely. It was the first thing I ever saw him in, and I remember thinking, "oh - what a creep", and "this guy's very good - would like to see him in some different roles". So...yeah. But...not attractive, sexy, etc.

Huck Finn. (I was a young teen when I read this.. I'm not a pedophile smile.gif )
