Literary Make-out Meme

Ten Literary Characters I Would Totally Make Out With If I Were Single and They Were Real But I’m Not, Single I Mean, I Am Real, But I’m Also Happily Married and Want to Stay That Way So Maybe We Should Forget This.

I couldn’t resist the title of this meme, found over at Bookfoolery & Babble. Too funny. And there are so many hot imaginary men!

1. Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice (self evident!)

2. Harvey Muldane from But Not for Me, a Harlequin I’ve recently confessed my soft spot for - he’s definitely Darcy inspired.

3. Rhett Butler from Gone with the Wind

4. John Harmon, alias John Rokesmith, alias Julius Handford, from Dickens’ Our Mutual Friend

5. John Thornton from Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South (or is Richard Armitage colouring my judgement here?)

6. Gabriel Oak from Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd - I like how he is steadfast and calm and a 'sensitive' man.

7. Hamlet : ok, so he's a bit looney but the dark handsome bad boy is tempting.

8. Percy Blakeney from The Scarlet Pimpernel

9. Sirius Black from Harry Potter (I caved; couldn't avoid the HP phenomenon. Although when I commented after seeing the movie that Sirius Black - as played by Gary Oldman - was hot, the 15 yr. olds in the back seat all groaned and told me I was weird.)

10. Aragorn from Lord of the Rings


  1. Okay--that's an easy one for me right now--Horatio Hornblower. I have a little literary crush on him! :)

  2. What fun! I'm totally with you on Mr Darcy and Aragorn.

  3. Yes, I agree about Mr Darcy,Sirius Black, Percy Blakeney and Aragorn.

  4. I was thinking of Horatio, but was concerned that I was thinking more of Ioan Gruffudd, LOL.

  5. This is really funny. Darcy, absolutely.
