Recently I posted about to-die-for, scrumptious, better-than-chocolate-cake characters (okay, I didn't put it quite like that). Here are a few examples...
You know Christian Bale in Batman? Yum.
How about Mr. Darcy?
And someone mentioned Gilbert from Anne of Green Gables.
Can I hear it for Edward Cullen?
And the dude from Time Traveler's Wife (don't know his name!).
What makes these characters so appealing? And if you're not into male characters, what women knock your... er... socks off?
This isn't a direct quote, more like something I pulled from memory, but Elizabeth Bennett sums up the reason why all these characters make us swoon. She says something like:
I'd like to love a man who has the potential of being evil, yet chooses good.
Evil capacity=definite major ingredient in a great character. But what do you guys like? What draws you to characters? What makes you LOVE a character? Inquiring minds want to know.
