Most of these are from when I was a lot younger:

Eilonwei from Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain
Neysa from The Apprentice Adept Trilogy (v.1-3)
Sheen from the same trilogy^
LOTR - Eowyn, both in the book and the movie.
Galadriel
Several female characters in the Xanth Series (v.1-12)

TV/Film:

Darlene from Roseanne
Cheetara from Thundercats
Wonder Woman
Princess Leia once I saw her hair down in Return of the Jedi
Willow Rosenberg- Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv series

-I still have a bit of a crush on Eowyn

I hated what the films did to her. Book Éowyn is cold as ice and tough as nails. She iss attracted to Aragorn's power rather than Aragorn personally; when denied that power and the chance to prove her valor, she rides off to battle in a fey mood. She also calls Aragorn out on being a sexist jerk in one of the most powerful passages in the novels, only the weakest portion of which was retained in the films (presumably to keep Aragorn looking heroic). Film Éowyn is like a giggly schoolgirl with a crush on Aragorn, and rides off to battle in a fey mood only after being disappointed in love. (None of this is Miranda Otto's fault--I thought her acting was first-rate--but the writing stripped away a great deal of the character's awe-inducing effect IMO. I'm endlessly amazed that a character from a book written by a conservative Catholic in the 50s is more feminist and empowering than her 2000s film adaptation.) All that being said, I think I'd like film Éowyn just fine were she not such a pale shadow of Éowyn as Tolkien wrote her. Then again, many characters suffered character assassination or major personality alterations in Jackson's films: Aragorn, Merry, Pippin, Faramir, Théoden King, even Gandalf... :(

Come to think of it, I found the actress who played Eowyn very attractive, especially her face and smile. The character was not the same at all, and did lack lack virtually all of the inner grit and ambition that Eowyn in the book had. Watching her impale a Nazgul's face though..... that was still great.

She does have a lovely smile.

I have a major, MAJOR crush on Balthazar Bratt from Despicable Me 3.

I've also had crushes on:

Giovanni from Pokémon
Waluigi
Robbie Rotten and Sportacus from Lazytown
L, Mello and Near from Death Note

I'm bisexual but all my fictional crushes are on men, albeit in many cases being androgynous, gender nonconforming or ambiguously gay.

It was both a crush and an extreme sense of admiration; he was everything I wanted to be.


Three years later, and this has not changed. :oops:

Straight guy here, but Skandar Keynes was definitely the best actor of the four kids. Incidentally, my last real-life crush was on a girl who looked like a prettier clone of Anna Popplewell. :lol: She's getting married next month...(My friend, not Anna Popplewell. Not that I know of, anyway. :p )


Skandar was amazing, but Georgie actually takes the cake for my favorite actor in anything ever. Love and admire them both to death. Anna apparently got married in 2016. He's a lucky man. She's gorgeous.
