This week’s question:
A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character? Who and what about them did you love?
When I first read the question my first reaction was no, but that there are many fictional people, both male and female, that I could see myself becoming and/or wanting to be friends with. But the more I thought about the question, there might have been a couple. Since I mainly read mystery and suspense, there might be some of the “good guys” that I have overlooked because I was too in tuned into the story line.
But the more I sat and thought about the question and went through the catalogue in my mind, there have been characters that I have “fallen in love” with. They are the male characters in Michael Baron’s books. I think the fact that the main male characters are created by a male author makes them even more appealing. These “men” are sensitive, loving, emotional, loyal, wearing their heart on their sleeves, romantic and tender not only with the woman in their life but with their children and family, which makes them even more attractive. So yes, after giving today’s question more thought, I have “fallen in love” with a few male fictional characters.
What about you? Has a character stolen your heart?
