This is slightly more risque than the average Monday Discussion post, but I saved this link from back in May and I thought with the impending release of the next Twilight movie this was a great question.
The article from January Magazine, Inappropriate Thoughts About Fictional Characters, is hilarious, but also thought provoking. Think about all the women out there in love with Edward from Twilight, or those a bit older in love with Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.
So today, since I have mixed company of regular Monday Discussion contributors, I thought it would be fun for us all to share the fictional characters we have had a crush on. I would like to keep it to books, but feel free to move into other media if you feel strongly (see below)
I will go first to break the ice. As a kid, I loved Nancy Drew mysteries and definitely had a crush on Ned Nickerson, her boyfriend.
These days, I get crushes on the hapless male characters who just need a good woman to help them set themselves right. It must be the mother in me. A great example of this is Israel Armstrong in the Bookmobile Mysteries, click here to read about him. Jackson Brodie from Kate Atkinson's suspense novels also fits this bill for me.

Moving off of the crush category and more into the "hots for," it is hard to deny that Vampire Eric in the Sookie Stackhouse books is pretty sexy. Add in Alexander Skarsgard's portrayal of him on True Blood, and it is hard to deny his appeal.
So, now it is your turn. Share you fictional crushes.
