Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Is it wrong for a grown-up to have a huge crush on an underage fictional character? I'm curious to hear what you think. I've heard many people admit to being smitten with Ariel from The Little Mermaid when they were underage, but I can't recall too many people admitting a fixation that works in the opposite direction. Oh, and I'm aware of the Harry Potter fan fiction. But the people who participate in the more outré forms it takes tend to be the sort who aren't too worried what the mainstream might think of them.

That one dude from Daria? With the goatee? I'd be all over him in a SECOND.

I can't even begin to confess that I have a crush of that sort, this being a public forum read by some of my students. But the urge to confess is strong! Let's just say that I have a thing for no-nonsense redheads who have a way with their wands, provided that they are over eighteen.

agrees with lunarcamel

Lunarcamel mentioned Trent from Daria -- He's definitely one, but he's a dope burnout is the problem, just like a lot of my middle school and high school guy friends were. That means you have a crush on them, but you never date them, because doing so would be utterly stupid.

My biggest fiction crush would have to be Blue Malefici from a fan-fiction series based on the Night World series. I typically find fan fiction boring/poorly written/blah diddy blah blah, but I've always loved Kiana's writing and especially her characters. Of course, Blue is more of a badass than Trent, and definitely undateable unless you don't value your life... (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/360519/1/)

Re: agrees with lunarcamel

Interesting. I don't know anything about Kiana, being such an antiquated soul. But I do like to have crushes on people who would kick my ass in a best case scenario!
