Valentine’s Day is coming up, and we all know what that means!
…watching Orange is the New Black and eating chocolates? Is that what you think of my social life? Well… WHO CARES IF YOU’RE RIGHT?! *shoves candies in face*
Nah, but let’s be real. Most of us introverted bookwyrms don’t have extravagant plans for Valentine’s, even if we do have a beaux. But who’s going to stop us from obsessively stalking celebrities? HAHAHA NOBODY.
So today, for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (Valentine’s Day freebie), I’m going to be going through my top crushes, real and fictional. Let’s get ready for some slight creepiness and overwhelming gushing.
1. Tom Hiddleston
My very first *real* celebrity crush. He’s been with me for upwards of four years now, staying adorable and silly and elegant. It’s princely Hiddles. His “ehehehehe” giggle is cute #AF, he’s a huge fan of Shakespeare, and he’s an INFP. How can you not love this admittedly tall, but very cuddly teddy bear?
2. Benedict Cumberbatch
I’m f**king obsessed with Sherlock, okay? Leave me alone. But in all seriousness, Cumbercookies is an amazing actor. You can all say he looks like an alien and be haters, but us Cumberb**ches know the truth: he’s damn fine. He’s confident and intelligent, and the fact that he’s not quite as tall as he looks only makes him adorable.
3. Michael Fassbender
Have I mentioned I like tall men? *muffled laughing* Ahhh, maybe it’s because I’m tall (5’8″), maybe it’s because my dad’s tall (6’8″), or maybe it’s just my preference, but I like ’em tall and sassy. I admittedly haven’t stalked Michael as avidly as some of my other candidates, but just his name sends a flutter through my heart. *le sigh*
4. James McAvoy
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. James is such a cute bundle of Scottish fluff, and I want to be best friends with him. I don’t really romanticize him as much of the others, but he is SO nice and caring. How does he keep that accent, though? It’s as thick as the frosting on my cupcakes. #don’tjudgeme
5. Brendon Urie
Brendon’s kind of crazy, but we all love him for it. Especially me. His lyrics are beautiful and his vocals are unbeatable. Plus, he basically plays an entire band on his own. Panic! at the Disco will never die.
6. Rowan Whitethorn
The Throne of Glass series is one of the sexiest, darkest, most engaging fantasy series I’ve ever read, and it definitely tops the YA list of favorites. But Rowan Whitethorn was the new Chaol after ships sunk and… things happened, and I am on board #AF. And not just because he is a lethal, vicious warrior. He’s brings out a calmer, yet protective side in Celaena, and she brings out his wildness. They are Yin and Yang.
7. Jem Carstairs
There are two kinds of people in the world: the #TeamWills and the #TeamJems. Well, actually, there are some #Indifferents out there, but we ignore them. I am in love with sweet, artistic, caring Jem, but I also find Will really funny and brave. I wouldn’t fight anyone about who’s better, but Jem just really took the cake for me in the breathtaking Infernal Devices trilogy.
8. Remus Lupin
Ahhh! My one true love from Harry Potter. Now, it may seem weird that I skipped over Harry and Ron and Cedric for the kind, middle-aged Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, but I’m actually in love with his younger self. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve always imagined the Marauders as older teenagers, and that’s stuck in my head. And Lupin + me as teens would really make sense. We could both worry over our studies and roll our eyes at James allll day long.
Now, to be honest, Akiva (aka hot angel from Daughter of Smoke & Bone) was a bit of a bore to me. I mean, sure, he had an interesting past, but something about the way his character never truly developed and stuck in the same place throughout the trilogy… I don’t know. But I DO know that I really did love him in the first book, so I try to keep that mental block in my head.
Aaagggh, I don’t have another fictional crush! I’ll subsitute a cute gif instead. Fair enough? Althought this is me when I see a piece of chocolate. Hehehe… *looks around awkwardly*
Did you see any of your crushes on here? Who are your favorite swoon-worthy people and characters? AND CAN WE ALL JUST TAKE A MOMENT AND APPRECIATE HOW GODDAMN CUTE SOME PEOPLE ARE. *sighhh* It’s not fair.
