When you were a younger person, did you ever get crushes on characters from books? I did, all the time. The funny thing is, I would have most likely have run screaming from all of these people had I met them in real life. Elric of Melniboné? Total raving creepy murderous loon. AND YET.

Other major players in my childhood fictional crush zones were Prince Random of Amber, Master Robinton of Pern (and I knew he was old enough to be my grandfather, which just made me feel suuuuper weird), and Ged of Earthsea.

Who were your fictional crushes? Or am I alone in this?
