So, here’s a question for you (hopefully one to put a smile on your face!), who are some of your favorite fictional crushes? Come on, you know you have one… or two! We all do, right? Since I love to have fun around here, I’m going to write about a few of mine. However as I sit here, late at night (like always), drinking chamomile tea and doing this website prep work (because why do it early in the day where ones brain presumable functions best), I’m in a conundrum.BECAUSE IT’S FUN. LET’S TALK FAVORITE FICTIONAL CRUSHES. SORT OF. #FICTIONALCRUSH #TVSHOWS #GOODTV #FAVORITECHARACTERS #BLUEBLOODS Click To Tweet
You see, I’m trying to decide something. Do I talk about bookish fictional crushes? Or do I go the easier route and talk about film or TV favorite crushes? This is a dilemma I’m not sure I’m exactly sure to answer. Typically I like to give myself more lead-in time to prepare if it’s not books but then on the other side of this I feel like I need to “collect” more book titles to have a good list and since I’m not really reading as much now, well, that’s a problem! SO. Guess we’ll go with TV and film? And to be honest, I can probably go with a “part 2” later where I will give myself more prep time. Let’s jump in.
FAVORITE FICTIONAL* CRUSHES
*Yes, I know fictional is mostly associated with fiction (novels)
These aren’t all “crushes” necessarily so much as dudes I find really interesting characters. But, yeah, let’s be real. Some are also crushes.
1: CHUCK BARTOWSKI from CHUCK
I mean… he’s just cute, right?
2: BILLY CRAWFORD from BURDEN OF TRUTH
Though he fights daemons of his own (which we don’t learn until later – and wow! It’s a lot) and has MANY thanks to a family who didn’t care about Billy or his siblings, I love the way Billy fierce loves and tries to truly be there for Joanna.
3: THE “BRAVE” UNIT from THE BRAVE
As a team or unit dynamic, I found all of these characters interesting. Sure I liked some better than others, but I was curious and excited to learn more about them only to be disappointed we didn’t get a second season. But I will confess, I did really like team leader Adam Dalton. I’m feeling as though, so far, I’ve already featured everyone on this list in similar lists. *shrugs* when they’re favorite characters, guys, I am loyal! What more can I say.
4: PATRICK JANE from THE MENTALIST
I feel as though this one will be controversial. I have this feeling basically no one likes Patrick…? I don’t know. However I just got done re-watching this show (because it’s just good and no one makes TV shows like this anymore) and I really like his character. Does he disguise himself in charlatan ways? Sure. Do I think he’s always as right as he acts? Nope. But I also don’t think he’s always wrong. He has keen observations and sometimes I think we need to hear that hard truth even if it hurts. Let’s be real, I also adore Agent Kimball Cho, too!
5: MIKE MCGUIRE from WHITSTABLE PEARL
I find this character super interesting. I love that he has a past which is why he’s broken, but also am respecting and enjoying the interesting he has in Pearl. Additionally, I love that somehow even with his broken heart, it’s like he’s pursuing her rather than the opposite. I cannot explain this well but it’s just this subtle and nuanced story that I’m hoping gest a second season. If not, then the story for him (again) ends with heartbreak.
6: DANNY MCNAMARA from BLOOD AND TREASURE
I have to be honest, I really like Danny. He’s not exactly what my impression of him is, and better yet, I LOVE that the first season put him on equal footing with his ex. I think that’s WAY better and should be the norm rather than the exception as so many TV shows or stories do today.
7: JAMIE REAGEN from BLUE BLOODS
Love this character and have found it really interesting to watch his growth from start to where we’re at now.
8: BILL WONG from AGATHA RAISIN
Pretty sure I’ve added him (and Chuck and Danny, too?) to a previous fictional crush list, but what I say! I really like the dude. He’s one of those boy-next-door kind of personalities that’s impossible not to like.
