Seconded. Also, Tobias from Animorphs.


Yeah, I was thinking about including Tobias, but then I would want to include Marco, and Cassie, and Rachel, and...well...yeah.

Also, is it sad that I didn't have to look Ax's full name up? It's just in my brain somewhere.

Like Elfangor Sirinial Shamtul. I used to know Visser 3's host's name, too.

MacGyver. Who later became leader of an elite military team which traveled to other planets through a big ring. They changed his name, but I know it's him.

Arbron or something like that, but I can't remember the full name. I may have Andalite Chronicles in a box around here somewhere, if I feel ambitious I'll try to find it.

Julie Delpy's character in Before Sunrise (not so much Sunset.)

For some reason I'm surprised those movies aren't mentioned in here more often.

Oh yes, David Boreanaz'Angel...especially when he was being evil.
Joshfrom The West Wing...aesthetically not what I would go for At All, but I just adored his character so much...although, I also loved Sam Seaborn, and I never thought I'd say that about a Rob Lowe character, but he was just so eloquent and bright and moral and yeah, pretty.
If we're talking lady loves, and The L Word's been mentioned so much, but I loved Mia Kirshner's character, Jenny, she's a beautiful wee thing anyway, but her character just seemed so flawed, and fragile, and she really appealed to me, for some reason.
Monica Bellucci in Malèna, Bellucci is as flawlessy beautiful a woman as I've ever seen, and Malèna just seems to embody what it means to be almost inaccessibly beautiful, and yet she was always so dignified, and proud.
Clive Owen in Closer...I don't know why I loved his character so, he was a broken mess of a man by the end, but he just really appealed to me.
Johnny Depp's Roux in Chocolat...who doesn't want gypsy Johnny turning up in their town?

And whyohwhy has no one mentioned Dr Ross?!?! Has there ever been a sexier doctor?!?!

I constantly fall for characters in movies or films.
My list (partial, due to memory loss) would be:

Juliet - "Romeo+Juliet"
Willow - "Buffy"
Buffy - In the later seasons
I totally fell for Allison Mack in "opposite sex". A show that was canceled after six episodes or something.
She's still cool in "Smallville" but it's not the same girl. :)
I never followed "Xena" but when I watched it was for Renee O'Connor as Gabrielle

Lanicita reminded me of Lizzy but only in the book. and most assuredly not as Bridget Jones.
Although Renee zellweger won me over in "Nurse Betty"
The girl in "My Girl". we were the same age at the time and I looked somewhat like macaulay culkin's character. (he has one twisted up name. I think this is the first time I've ever written it.)
Min from WoT is seriously awesome. But, and I know most people disagree, I'm a fan of Faile.

So braindead now. probably kick myself later for forgetting some major ones.

Maybe not "fallen in love with", but here's the (long) list of fictional characters on my "I so would" list:

TV/Film:
- Tim Bisley (Spaced ) (I will marry him. Yes I will.)
- Tim (The Office)
- Wash(Firefly) (I was inconsolable after Serenity.)
- Denny (Grey's Anatomy)
- Peter Petrelli (Heroes)
- Bernard Black (Black Books)
- Edward Scissorhands (Edward Scissorhands)
- Jim (28 Days Later)
- Rory (Inside I'm Dancing)
- Joan's boyfriend guy who's name I forgot (Joan of Arcadia)
- Dennis Doyle (Run Fat Boy, Run) (It was Simon's Emmy speech on the balcony that did if for me)

Books/Comics:
- Gambit (X-Men) (I have a gigantic list of reasons as to why I love Gambit so much. I really, really love Gambit)
- Llian (The View From The Mirror quartet)
- Fred and George Weasley (Harry Potter) (oh god WHY jkr sob)
- Edward Cullen (Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse)
- Peter Parker (Spiderman)
- Anvar and Forral (Artefacts of Power)

Video games:
- Carth Onasi (KOTOR)
- Atton Rand (KOTOR 2)
- Tidus (Final Fantasy X) (only reason I played X-2 was to get him back)

Eh, I bet there are more I just can't remember.

Sylar from Heroes.

Because of this picture:

That's the only thought that goes through my mind when he's on screen. Well, he can't be all bad. He likes ice cream.

Drusilla- from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Inara Serra- from Firefly
Fred Burkle- from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Shane- from The L Word
Anything with Angelina Jolie. Period.
Sarah Silverman- When she was on Greg the Bunny (I greatly dislike her now.)

And, holy crap, I almost forgot. Carmen- from The L Word. That tattoo actually kills me.

This one wasn't me, but was my best friend Daniel. He said that after watching the movie Cars (yes, the Pixar animated movie) that he wanted to find a girlfriend like Sally, the blue Porsche.

Me personally, I've really grown fond of Veronica Mars. She does have that constant suspicion of everyone around her plus a supply of surveillance gear that would make dating her difficult. I think Kristin Bell is just beautiful.

Yellie, holy crap Gambit. I was so sad that the only part he had in the movies was when Remy pops up on a computer screen (I think it's in the second one?).

He was going to be in the second one actually -- they got Wolverine's stuntman to play him, but they cut the scene out. ): You have no idea how upset I was about the complete and utter lack of Gambit in the films. You know why they won't put him in them? Apparently because he's "too much like Wolverine - the audience might get confused." I just... how...?

To be fair, film Wolverine was pretty much nothing like comic Wolverine anyway, so Gambit would have been equally disappointing.

Sam from Garden State. She's so adorable.
Plus the main guy from Stardust, just for his lovely looks.

On another note, Sylar from Heroes looks like my boyfriend and I think he is totally fit, even if he does slice peoples heads open. I'd have him either as a clean cut watchmaker, or dirty tanned guy who helps people across the border, haha

Justine Bateman made Family Ties.

Alyssa Milano on whatever that stupid show was. I hated the show but watched sometimes when my sisters were watching it.

There are hundreds of others from childhood, I'm sure.

More recent... (Oh to be a strawberry! Best scene from any movie ever. Period!)

Mine are mostly fairly classic ones so I'll put them first and move on to something more interesting.

Leia (who hasn't)
Elizabeth Swann
Elizabeth Bennett
Daisy from Spaced (though she did cheat in the gunfight - I've never quite forgiven her for that).
Clint Eastwood (I'd go gay for him, if he wouldn't shoot me for it).
Alyx Vance (I know it's a game but a very cinematic one)
Bastila (likewise)
We're not Brazil we're Northern Ireland,
But it's all the same to me!

If games count, then lately I've been into a few of the Persona 3 characters. While out of the playable ones, I ADORE Junpei (heh heh..."Stupei"), out of all the characters in the game, the person that I love the most is Ryoji.

[MASSIVE SPOILER TRAIN COMING, LOOK OUT!]

Spoiler:
Yes, Ryoji. The ultimate collection of all twelve major shadows and the one who will usher in Nyx to destroy the Earth. And I love him to pieces. I could talk about how his portrayal gave us a realistic and mature take on death, how him existing gave the usual "generic faceless enemy" a face and a modicum of humanity, and showing the audience that not all the enemies you fight do horrible things because they're "BWAHAHAHAHA EVIL!!"

I could go on about that for years.

HOWEVER. It's early for me and I'm tired and I'd much rather fangirl over how much of a cute little studmuffin he is....


....Carry on.
