Even when I was a teen, I never have been one to get a crush on an actor or a rockstar, though I tried a couple of times. But I sometimes fell in love with fictional characters. I remember being absolutely crazy about KITT, from the dreadful 80's show "Knightrider", with his sleek black shape and oh, that wonderful voice. And Morgan, from Katherine Kurtz's Deryni books, back when they were a trilogy and not a series. Those were the most memorable ones, but there are more. I know I've got a soft spot for some of Diana Wynne Jones' protagonists, like the Wizard Howl from Howl's Moving Castle, and Chrestomanci from Charmed Life. There were doubtless more, a unicorn or dragon or cat that I really adored and wanted for my own, in some platonic yet no less passionate way.
I'm sure I'm not the only one, and I'm curious: who else among you has harbored a longing for some fictional person or entity? Which ones?
