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.

I have quite the nerd crush on the character Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Star Wars Rebels animated series. :heart:

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:

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.

Yes, she is. I thought Fox's adaptation of Voyage of the Dawntreader to be overall horrible, but I admit to some swooning over Susan in that vintage Forties finery. :heart:

Ahsoka's great an' all, but MY heart belongs to Hera Syndulla.

...yes, my most significant crush right now is not only fictional, but an animated green alien.

^Hey, mine is a fictional, animated orange, white, and blue alien, so we're in the same boat. :wtg:

Hera is unquestionably my favorite character of Phoenix Squadron. I wouldn't say I have a crush on her like I do with Ahsoka, but nonetheless I love the leadership aspect of her character. She really is the galaxies best space mom. :mrgreen:

I have been informed that it is not uncommon to have more than one crush, which is good because there is another lady of animation that I have found myself having a crush on. She would be Raven from Teen Titans (not Go!).

Between Raven and Ahsoka Tano, I must have a thing for non-human women. :shrug:
