I have had several. Sara Sidle from CSI was my biggest. Right now I am into Abby from NCIS (which I just started watching).

When I was 13 or so, absolutely.

Kitty Pryde of X-Men fame (long, long before she wandered off to found Excalibur or joined SHIELD or any of the other insane crap they've done with her since)

Tika from the Dragonlance books.

Since then... not so much.


Too many to count. Raven from Teen Titans and Blackarachnia from Beast Wars are two of my earliest ones. Rachnera from the anime Monster Musume, Midna from Legends of Zelda, Asajj Ventress from Star Wars, all four of Lotor's female generals in Voltron, and Demona from Gargoyles were big ones over the last few years. I'm a big Harley/Ivy shipper, though that's more a ship than a crush. I also have a ton of crushes on mythical figures. Lilith, Hekate, Kali, Bastet, the Morrigan, I could go on. So yeah, I have a ton, and a lot of them are pretty damn weird to be totally honest.

I think that was pretty much the point of Kitty, back in the day. I'll certainly cop that one as well.

A few other comic characters, mostly from around that same time period.


When I was 10 or 11 I had a crush on Supergirl. Even had a letter published in the letters column (yeah,comics used to have those). I was so excited when I saw it.


Naomi Armitage. From specifically Armitage 3. (never saw 1 or 2) I just happened to be at the right age when I saw it.

Oh and the first Pink ranger if that counts as fictional.


All of them.

There is no Armitage 1 or 2. It's supposed to be "Armitage III" or "Armitage the Third", because... Well.

Spoilers for those who haven't watched it:
She's one of those secret Third Generation robots that suddenly got revealed as living amongst the population of Mars. Or at least more or less, but that'd go into to much detail.

The subtitle "Poly Matrix" is there because the movie is essentially just a four-episode anime cut into a movie.
There is also a sequel, "Armitage III: Dual Matrix".

And I'm not going to list all the fictional crushes I had, but I guess Deedlit/Deedo from Record of Loddoss War, Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo, and also Armitage would probably be the "top three".

My first fictional crush was definitely Zorro.

I think my first fictional crush was Penny Robinson on the original Lost in Space.


Oh Forgot Daria from the show of the same name.

My first crush on a fictional character was on the Egyptian-themed superhero Andrea Thomas/Isis (as played by Joanna Cameron) from the mid-70s live-action Saturday morning series The Secrets of Isis (which was one half of The Shazam!/Isis Adventure Hour).

My first celebrity crush was on Deborah Harry, after seeing Blondie perform on American Bandstand.

Underrated book. I will say excalibur fans were notoriously obnoxious.

Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice for most people attracted to women. Mr Darcy from the same work for people attracted to men. I'm talking the book here although the same can be said about the movie and 1995 TV version.

There is a reason that for over a century this book is routinely on the lists of "most popular books of all time". Elizabeth, especially, was carefully crafted (by what most people consider a genius) to be a character that you fall in love with.

Worked for me.

If you haven't read it, I'd highly recommend the book. Its great fun. And you too can fall in love with Elizabeth and/or Mr Darcy as appropriate :-).

Sometimes great literature is considered great for a reason :-)

When I was a young middle schooler I was absolutely dissolved by Olivia D’Abo in Conan The Destroyer. As a boy, I don’t think I made it sitting still even once through the movie watching the little princess.

Then, as an adult, seeing the movie again after a decade or so (in the late 90s or thereafter), I couldn’t believe I had thought Olivia D’Abo was so beautiful. My god she was soooo young, just a child (I looked it up; she’s almost s decade older than I.). Instead, I noticed how incredibly powerfully hot Sarah Douglas was. Oh my goodness the evil queen in that movie gets me. I don’t even think I noticed her as a kid but as an adult — definitely attractive to me.

Sarah Douglas — and for the winner: Sandahl Bergman! Five-Foot-Twelve and strong and beautiful and everything. I don’t care if she’s Valeria, Red Sonja, She, or some other gorgeous heroine, I love Sandahl Bergman.

Linda Hamilton in T2 .... Sigourney Weaver .... Michelle Pfeiffer .... Jeri Ryan, tall and confident and strong and smart. And beautiful.


Hmm. Both the Evil Queen (Regina) and Red Riding Hood in the series Once Upon a Time. The queen was smart, attractive, powerful, and I still remember when I saw the first trailer for the series. My first response: "I'm rooting for the bad guys." Red (played by Meghan Ory) had legs, a great face, and it's not every character who gets to say: "You think you're a monster? I ate my first boyfriend."

Books: Morag, the Gatherer of Souls. Sad, wise beyond her years, and set up to fall. Deepest character in the House of Gaian series.

KOS-MOS from the Xenosaga series. Those little glimpses of her personality that finally open up in the last game. Great hair too, not something you say about androids every day.

Rogue from X-men. Smart, sassy, powerful, but down to earth. During the Avenge the Earth arc, she got to tell the Scarlet Witch "Yeah, I stabbed you to death." "What?!" "I'll explain later, hug it out sister."

Some others I'm forgetting from when I was younger.

I am a grown adult in my 40s and obviously, therefore, do not get crushes on fictional characters.

Except on Dottie Underwood from Agent Carter. Who I may possibly have been continually obsessed with for the last two and a half years.

And Maggie Mui from R.O.D the TV.

And Piper Wright from Fallout 4.

And Veronica Santangelo AND Christine Royce from Fallout: New Vegas.

And Annah from Planescape: Torment.

Also a little bit Eder from Pillars of Eternity.

And....

Yeah, okay, I do. A lot.

My first fictional character crush? Probably a tie between Zarana from G.I. Joe and Stormer from JEM.

It was too young to be crushing but I was also OBSESSED with Trini from 3-2-1 Contact when I was 3 years old. Also Debra Winger's Wonder Girl on the Wonder Woman TV show.

Yeah, I don't like her. I thought I would, but she's way too squishy and nice. I liked Stormer from the cartoon because she had to deal with being bullied and making her own way, but also wasn't afraid to be an accessory to murder or even attempt murder when it was called for. (The girl knowingly and willingly clotheslined skiiers knowing it could end in breaking their necks, and did it while laughing her ass off. Do NOT tell me she was "the nice one" or was forced into it. She was a bad girl with SOMETIMES a conscience and that's why she was interesting and complicated and fun.)

Generally I think the comics ruined the Misfits. I started off really loving the first few issues, but overall they just ruined the lovely shade of gray the Misfits all had. What was fun about them in the cartoon is they started off as truly, dispicably awful (I'd say "truly outrageous," but...) and ended up gaining some softer edges over time as they dealt with human issues. In the comics they started with soft edges and ended as marshmallows. (On the Holograms' side, I do like what the comics did to flesh out Aja and Shana though. Kimber was fine, but she needed more of a temper. They did a good job of making Jerrica more human and relatable but at a cost of too much of her heroic side--the cartoon made Jerrica/Jem too perfect and always "the hero"; the comic humanized her much more but often made her an observer/passive entity in a story where she's the title character.)

I liked the character designs in the comics, though; Stormer included but I preferred her sense of style in the cartoon--40s starlet-meets-80s-glam-punk.

Anyway, yes, adorable and unafraid to kill is basically my main type. (Yes, don't worry, I'm single.)

Rereading my post, I feel the need to clarify I was being a tad facetious about the murder part. I make it sound like I really want to chase down would be criminals... this is not true. (I do enjoy in fictional characters gray morality characters on a redemption arc; also good people fallen on tough times forced to be a bit pragmatic.)

I really like the new comic and I am sorry you dont, although you certainly have the right to opine. I found the misfits in the cartoon to be kind of insane, later humanizations notwithstanding. 1

There were positive things about the comics, I just felt that the Misfits' characterization wasn't one of them, and I especially don't like that they took all the edge off Stormer (and removed most of her trauma/tension/sources of growth). Yes, in the very early pilot episodes of Jem, the Misfits were balls to the wall OTT villains, but we were in the era of Cobra Commander and Megatron; that was par for the course. The fact they were slowly humanized and given some seriously quality backgrounds and reasonable growth (for a cartoon) was downright revolutionary for the era. Especially because at the end, it's Pizzazz who becomes high minded enough to call for a truce rather than the hero, Jem (even if that was just to quickly end things on a high note). It's sad that the comic, which was supposed to be far more grounded and realistic, also had far less tension and character growth, especially for the antagonists.

No YOU think too much about cartoons from your childhood.

Here's a thought: if you had Pathfinder style magic could you make a fictional character real? Lets assume said character is just a regular human who's level 5 at most. I would say miracle or mythic wish could create them (though it would count as a big miracle and thus cost money).


No, unless it's Pinocchio, that prick owes me money.

Really, all you need is either wish (for simulacrum-like replica) or polymorph any object, depending on your interpretation.

But depending on your choice, 'dat fictional character gonna look wweeeeeiiiiiirrrrrd.

Given the intimate details I would know about that fictional character prior to making them "real?"

I'd feel extremely creepy doing that.

"Hi, I have literally read your thoughts for years, know your insecurities, and have been present for every trauma you remember. But you didn't see me."


Meh. I would be okay with the situation.

I think if I brought Maggie Mui to life, somehow she'd have read about ME in a book somewhere.

But Maggie would be sad without her sisters and then I'd have to bring them into the world and then it would just get messy and expensive from there.

I could bring in Dottie, as there's still loads of mystery surrounding her, but then she'd probably kill me and everyone else and then go stalking Hayley Atwell, so that's probably a bad idea too.

I actually had a similar idea: perhaps the wish/miracle brings a version of them from another universe where they are real and you are a fictional character. Crazy, huh?

Even crazier: in real life apparently some theories of cosmology say their might be a different universe for every possible history of the universe down to the smallest difference. Which would imply most fictional characters do exist somewhere.


Tacticslion wrote:

To clarify, I'd be okay with the situation, if it were me being brought to reality. That is, I'd miss my life as I knew it, but I'd also be glad to, you know, exist.

So... existence for the win!

And, given that I'm aware of how fiction works (and almost every fictional universe has some sort of recursive concept of how fiction works, so I'm pretty sure that everyone has the basic idea), the fact that someone had written or otherwise consumed my life as media would be weird, sure, but not because, "Ew~! How could you!" but more, "Really? Why me?" - it'd be awkward (because what is there to talk about? They know it all...), but flattering, insofar as it goes.

Sure, you could get offended, but... why? Because they didn't make your life perfect enough?

Here's an example of those stories: "Once, there was a perfect person, who was perfect and everything around them was perfect, and nothing bad happened, ever, but everything was perfect. The end."

1) that's nice enough for the hypothetical person, I suppose, but it's boring to read. No one would follow the story (especially if it was a novel of nothing but that - after page one, I'm pretty sure all those who claim to read it are either lying or looking for the non-existent "gotcha" moment, or trying to crack some sort of conspiracy theory code... which is too obsessive to be healthy, really). Nothing happens.

2) it'd be cruel to bring such a person into our world.

Because of number '2' you've gotta question if it's valid to bring anyone into another world, but, honestly, I'd rather exist than not exist, and, if that's how it goes, that's how it goes.

(If you're going to open up the weirdness angle, though, you've also gotta start asking other weird questions, like "Do I still exist in my own story, or does the story somehow rearrange itself to accommodate my absence (which has implications on its relative reality)? Why was I plucked out as I am at this point in the story, rather than that point in the story?" and so on, we'd be here forever if I kept digging.)

My point is simply this: while flawed heroes have flaws, and some people may not appreciate having gone through what they did, quite a number (at least, I'd suppose, unless there's a weird flaw in the system that we don't know about - though that's another thing altogether) would likely be glad to exist "for real."

But if you're going to do this, be kind: don't pull people from paradise, and don't pull people who have a need or requirement that can't be accessed here (like addiction to an exotic drug, or need to consume special minerals that don't exist in our world) to the best of your knowledge.


The main problem with that theory is you get into genuine nonsense really quickly.

Is there a joker, who is batman, who is a national hero, wanted by the fbi, but also sitting in the oval office as a presid- nevermind, that's political.

But, on the other hand, here's a possibility under infinite possibilities: there is a you who is not you who is you but is not you. That is, there is a "you" who is you in this reality (that is, not "like" you as you are in this reality, but actually you in this reality) who is also not-you (it could be an item, say a rock, or another person, say, the Rock, or both at the same time), but in another reality that is also this reality. All this could be true simultaneously.

Or, perhaps there is a world that seems identical to ours except that no one can communicate anything but the word "kumkwat" (complete with mental images of that fruit) and, according to the rules of that world, no knows either what a kumkwat is, nor why it exists; also, in that reality, there are no people or kumkwats, it's all just nonsentient shades of the color blue.

Or, perhaps there's a world where a;sdljkav;lvnks;gbjkhnaotl;jasvlc c

All of those are valid under the "infinite possibilities" theory, even though none of them make any sense (the last one literally just being me smashing my keyboard at random).

In a more simple nonsense scenario, there exists a reality extremely similar to this one, in which everyone bops themselves over the head with a toy hammer every time they breathe. Why? They all think it's funny and has never been done before, even though there's an entire industry revolving around it (and even though some of them have built that industry) - because it's one of infinite possibilities. As an aside, in that scenario, people have done that since before there were toy hammers - doesn't matter, they still used toy hammers. Nonsense available in infinity.

You also end up with concepts like it being irrelevant if there are other existences, and strictly deterministic existence (which seems likely for us, anyway, but is even more so in this one) as "all possible outcomes are true" which means, in this world, your "free will" is one of the outcomes, and it's always been determined exactly what you will choose (because other realities also exist in which you've chosen everything else - also determined).

But! There is also the "every outcome possible within selected parameters" scenario (which presupposes a listed set of internally consistent principles specifically to avoid nonsense like good ol' world, "a;sdljkav;lvnks;gbjkhnaotl;jasvlc c" I mentioned up above), but even then you start running into serious problems. Here's an example of why.

I suggest you read "The Library Of Babel" if you haven't already. It's basically about a library that contains all possible books within certain paramaters (they are all 410 pages I think). Now, obviously the VAST majority of the books are complete gibberish, but within the library there exists every book that ever has been written, will be written, or could be written
