Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character?
Some fictional characters are so real, so close to us as the reader that it is inevitable that we may fall in love and dream of spending time with them. Have you ever had this experience? If so what was the character - could be from a book, a film or any creative endeavour.
When I had about 8 I was " inlove" with Michael J Fox from Back to the Future.... LOLOL nonsense much?
Harmless healthy fantasies!
I don't know about falling "in love" but I did have a huge "crush" on Legolas from Lord of the Rings. Both in the reading of the book & watching the movie.
It was funny because I never even knew who played the part, I just thought he was so attractive as Legolas... when Pirates of the Caribbean came out my boyfriend at the time said "hey look, there's your boyfriend" ~ I looked at the movie trailer on TV expecting to see Legolas. "Where?" I asked.
"Right there." my boyfriend pointed out. "That's Orlando Bloom, right there. He's the guy that played Legolas."
"Oh!" I looked closer. "Ewww. He doesn't look like Legolas at all now. He looks way better with long blonde hair and pointed ears."
We both had a good laugh
I have fallen in fictional love with a fictional character....to be REAL about this....YES, absolutely....more than one character and more than one at a time! Oh my!.......but no fictional character, have I been more madly in love with than "Joe Black," (Brad Pitt) from the movie, co-starring Anthony Hopkins, "Meet Joe Black."
Now, let me get back to fantasizing, please.
Paula- I confess to some man-love to 'Joe Black' too. He looked so perfect in that movie and his demeanor was ever so innocent and charming ( even though he was death himself!)
hmmm....valid point, Docmo.....but I tell you what, honey....."DEATH" NEVER LOOKED SO INVITING TO ME!
I agree completely. By serendipity I watch that movie a couple of nights ago, and loved it, not only for the beauty of Brad Pitt but also for that of Claire Forlani. i think it was Pitt's ingenuousness that was so captivating,,, and that hair.
Ok, there's the obvious one of Noah from The Notebook, but there have been a few others that I've had little crushes on in TV lala land - not falling in love, just make believe back in the day. If you ever watched the series with Eliza Dushku, Tru Calling - I had a huge crush on her brother, I can't remember his name. And many years ago I was a little obsessed with Jeremy Jackson's character, Hobie in Baywatch.
Great question Docmo! The first thing that popped straight into my head, believe it or not was when I read "The Thorn Birds" before the series was made!!
Father Ralph even though he broke those vows had "something" very appealing!!
I was a teenager when I read the book so maybe a crush, but I still have that book today, a prized possession. Maybe it was the rule breaking, something with more than a bit risque . . . . . I have other more modern fictional love fantasy's but this was the first one I remember!!
This may sound a liitle strange, but when I was about 15 I fell deeply in love with Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
He was such a sad soul but carried himself so beautifuly, and his voice made me melt. Of course I realized that he was not real, but he was just such a romantic figure to a young girl......I still kinda love him!
So some reason I had a major crush on Draco Malfoy from the 'Harry Potter' books. I think it was the fact that he was the school bully and always portrayed himself as the badboy xx
I had a crush on Robin from the Batman show in the 60's. Now that I see the reruns, I wonder why! Guess it was one of those teenage phases.
My own characters, yes. They become so real to me that when I am done writing, I feel a little pang of something like homesickness. When I write, I can just picture what they look like and their mannerisms and I miss them when they are gone.
When I watched the three "Lord of the Ring" movies, I felt that way about the character "Aragorn", who was played by Vito Mortensen.....I guess I just loved everything about his character in all three of the movies!
Well...I do have the hots for the purple-ponytailed cyclops fighting spaceship pilot Layla from the animated Futurama series. Don't know if it's love exactly, but I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers.
Very early I remember being in love with Atticus. I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" in elementary school. When the movie came out and he came to life I knew I was in love. A man who defended African Americans, treated them with respect and compassion. I grew up in a time where blatant racism was permitted and often rewarded. I needed to know that other types of people existed or I might have cracked in my late teens when I was attacked and beaten because I was a young black woman striving to get a college degree. Atticus my first love and many that followed him helped to keep the bitterness of life's realities from hardening me. Seeing a good and fair person in action helped me raise my children to have faith, love and compassion for people. Dee
