Swoon-worthiest heroes and other Very Important Life Questions
I thought it’d be fun to hear your opinions on something that I hold very near to my heart:
Yeah, I know you were probably expecting something profound or life-altering, but I’m not a very profound person and my life is pretty static.
The above pictures are of some of my most favoritest hotties (left to right: Garcia Bernal, Gong Yoo, Mos Def, James McAvoy).
Wanna know my favorite fictional hero of all time? Han Solo. Something about his cocky rogue attitude mixed with his softer, good side… He’s genuinely an arrogant jerk, but he’s also kind nice on the inside. ::SWOOOOOON::
Now I want to know what you like!! So, let’s get started… 😀
Okay, that’s enough about hot guys… Although, is there ever really enough when it comes to attractive people? Oh, the hard questions of life, my friend.
You tell me: Do you have any poll ideas for next time? Any answer options I offered that you think were truly wretched?? Are you completely annoyed with me for dwelling on boooooys?

The only fictional guy I can think of right now is Etienne from Anna and the French Kiss. If you haven`t read Anna and the French Kiss yet, then you must! =D Seriously, after reading that book, I`ve had the strong urge to take the next flight to France so I can maul the first handsome French guy who has an English accent. *swoons*
It`s so depressing, because I want my Etienne so badly ;___;

I agree with Aekubo! Anna and the French Kiss was one of my favourite books of 2010, if not the past few years!!

You are so classic/hilarious/adorable, Sooz. These were so entertaining. Also, who would pick Harry over Peeta/Po to be stranded with? Without magic, Harry’s just a whiny brat. Peeta would cook you an edible cake out of sand and clams, and frost that shiz with sea foam! Mmm, salty! 😀

Pooooooooo! I love Po! But really, the best fictional hero shall always be Mr. Darcy. I’m like that chick in Lost in Austen. Except maybe not so silly.
I tend to write nice boys, but I think that’s because we romanticize the alphas/bad boys when, generally, they’re just not as pretty as we paint them. I think nice boys can have their harder sides when pushed, and that makes them interesting.

PS: Gong Yoo ::pants:: ohz mans…

this was fun!!!!

Mmmmmm Kartik. *drools*
And Harry Potter on the desert island, totally. I mean, he comes with a magic wand! lol

I’m a Peeta girl all the way. Strength + sensitivity + intelligence + mad baking skillz = what’s not the like?
Man, that was the worst.math.equation.ever. Oh well.
Will you think less of me if I admit I’ve never actually seen Star Wars, so while I know who Han Solo is, I have absolutely nothing to compare him to?
December 13, 2010 @ 2:25 pm
And I obviously meant “what’s not TO like,” not that that makes it any better…
December 13, 2010 @ 4:14 pm
That is James McAvoy…
I love that man.
December 13, 2010 @ 4:31 pm
Dimitri from Anastasia? Please…
I realize that’s delving into the movie world, but it’s worth it for him. That hair, those eyes…
December 13, 2010 @ 4:34 pm
Lol @ Holly!!!
Love the post Susan, it’s always nice to set some time aside to swoon =D
I loved the choices. The only other person I can think to mention is James from Y.S. Lee’s ‘The Agency’ series. Oh and Nick from ‘The Demon’s Lexicon’ by Sarah Rees Brennan (he’s a right devil).
Will from Clockwork Angel too =D
Okay so maybe I thought of a few lol.
James McAvoy is hot – especially in Wanted!
December 13, 2010 @ 7:41 pm
Etienne is unknown to me, but I will DEFINITELY read Anna now!! (I have to, right? With a French hubby…)
And Dimitri!! instant swoon… How could I forget?
December 13, 2010 @ 7:41 pm
Han Solo, Robin Hood, Spike…I always fall for the same type :-
December 14, 2010 @ 5:36 am
Ha! I love the hot guy post 😀
I really, really adore Gilbert Blythe as a love interest (he’s not particularly hot, but whatever). I don’t know, I guess he’s like the Peeta (but with more attitude) of MG classics, lawl.
And yeah, Mr Darcy, Han Solo, Damon from The Vampire Diaries…
The guys I write tend to be nice, but also quirkily stupid, haha.

I am neither fussy nor demanding. I am happy to go with Mos Def or James McEvoy or Han Solo or Mr Darcy OR Peeta. See how obliging I am?
I will also add that Daniel Craig was on my list (and cast in a piece I was writing as a strong, silent type who was in military intelligence, slept around and had an emotional disconnect to the world) before he was Bond! My friend says if he ever shows up at our house looking for a date, I have earned first dibs due to my deep understanding of him.

I picked Peeta on the last one before even reading the rest of the options. 😀 I’m hopeless.
I love this! You should make polls on favorite heroins next time! And then come up with another one that’s dude-related because I don’t want to run out of those. ;D
December 22, 2010 @ 12:38 pm
I will most definitely make more polls, Madeleine! I’ve got a few ideas knocking around in my head… 😉
