Discussion of fictional crushes or characters you feel an emotional attachment towards.

Sexual orientation doesn't matter.

Some questions you can answer if you want:

Did you develop your crush from their appearance? Or their personality?

If you have more than one fictional crush, have you noticed a connection between them?

What is the feature about them that made you attracted to them in the first place?

Does the writer/artist have continuous characters you're attracted towards?

My fictional crush is Terry Pratchett's Samuel Vimes.

He's such a hardass, but being a literary character, I got inside his head. He's kinda like Clint Eastwood; he's hard as fucking nails but the nice thing about book characters is you get a chance to read their internal dialogue. He's just as scared and pissed off and confused as everyone else, but it always seems to come right for him.

what a shit description. I'm sorry, Vimes. Even Sorrier am I to the late Terry Pratchett. The character died with him.

I think 'Night Watch' was sad and beautiful. That book really helped me get-to-grips with Vimes.
The Rembrandt-style cover is amazing. Paul Kidby was his newer illustrator, and he did a damn fine job.

Although, Josh Kirby's original covers where so chaotic and busy. there was always so much movement, but there was something so grotesque about the characters I could never draw a link between his illustrations and the characters Terry portrayed. I remember reading 'MORT' when I was a kid (well, my dad read it to me) and being disappointed when I saw how he was illustrated.

I ended up falling hopelessly in love with Alistair from Dragon Age Oranges.

I think it was his blundering quirky british voice actor that did it, really. I've never been sold on developing a romance in videya, but i persued this one with interest. It made me feel like a giddy schoolgirl, and upon our interations I'd be genuinely upset if I'd come on too strong, fucked it up somehow.

Pursuing Alistair was a gentle, believable and rewarding experience. I could feel our romance BLOSSOMING.

This so much. Pursuing Alistair made me so warm and fuzzy like babby's first crush or something. Tumblr has ruined this phrase but he really is a cinnamon roll.

No. 172023

Ugh, I have a problem with this. I tend to get way too attached to fictional characters sometimes. And if there's a romance option in a game there's a 99% chance I'm going to get obsessed with someone. I'm still fucking devastated over Solas. Legit cried for hours and even had dreams about him. My bf looked at me like I was nuts. I think a lot of it has to do with the way they're written though, the personality that comes through. Anyone can create some pretty looking pixels but certain characters just pull my heartstrings more than others.

No. 172024

This thread interests me a lot actually. I have plans to make an RPG with romance in it and I can't decide between a player-choice system like Dragon Age, etc or a built in story romance that you can choose to go in depth in or not (FF7 kinda, but not the best example). Do you guys have a preference for one of those or the other?

Ever since I was fifteen and I played the first game I have been hooked. At first youre going along minding your own business - gutting satyrs and ripping of gorgons heads - but over time you get to know the man behind the god (particularly in the psvita spinoffs oddly enough) and if youve played the whole series you just want to give him a hug :(

It's fun reading everyones responses! I completely agree on the personality aspect and, with books or series that really build a character, it's easy to get attached when they have realistic problems and emotions.

I've had a bunch of little crushes since I got really into video games and cartoons/anime as a kid. As an adult I keep my crushes to myself. I've noticed that all of my crushes are generally weak, or outcast in some way. I also have a weird obsession with 'deformed' or monster-like characters. Most of the time the crush isn't even romantic; more like I just want to see them be happy.

I giggled at this one because it's so me. I've watched some series with my boyfriend, only to get visibly obsessed with a character. He mostly thinks it's funny/weird but I just get embarrassed by myself.

Is there a way for you to maybe put the two options together?

No. 172027

That's an interesting idea, like say one canon story romance, but optional side romances or something maybe?

No. 172028

I think it really depends on what your plot and setting for your game are. If it has a more serious tone I'd say a canon romance would be the way to go. But if it's more casual, say something like Harvest Moon, then I think multiple options would be better.

The only thing that gets me about RPGs with possible partners is that the character I like is never an option, haha. But I do imagine that'd take a lot of work and mess with the story if everyone was an option.

No. 172029

Yeah, it's definitely going to be more of a serious tone, I hesitate to say it but JRPG style in that strong emphasis on story and character interactions is the goal. I really also want to include meaningful choices in the game, so that's why I'm a bit stuck on which direction to take romance.

I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, but I just have always loved romances in RPGs, and honestly find it to be a lacking area…

I love this thread so much OP. Seeing everybody's crushes on fic men just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and not so alone.

As to mine, it's always been Agent 47. Always. I don't know why. I played the first Hitman when I was a kid and something about his silent assassin ways and quietly strong demeanor just get to me. People think he's unfeeling but he has a lot of unsaid depth, he just chooses to be stoic about his emotions. And he's not cold-hearted despite being a killer. It's canon that he never murders innocents and most of his marks are horrible people that you don't feel bad about murdering in the first place.

I've had a crush on Cmdr Data from Star Trek Next gen for 5+ years… I always get shit on by other trekkies for liking/crushing on such a popular character, like i'm being a "typical trekkie gurl hurr durr, bearded Riker's the obvious ultimate husbando" (Spock fangirls get the same shit.)

I've noticed that the more i got to know his character, the more attractive he got? I mean, Brent Spiner's pretty 'meh' looking, but Data's just so fucking interesting and cute he sort of became more attractive to me as time went on.

Then i do sort of have a weak spot for guys with the Kraftwerk or young Gary Numan aesthetic… Fuck, i love geeky guys so much.

>Did you develop your crush from their appearance? Or their personality?

Personality. Not that he is bad looking, he just weren’t my type at first so he didn’t grab my attention. It wasn’t until my friend talked about him that I realized he was cute and I slowly grew to like him.

>If you have more than one fictional crush, have you noticed a connection between them?

There tend to be a pattern in the men I like, however it has changed throughout the years. At the moment I’m into mature, serious guys. As for female characters I don’t have a type.

>Does the writer/artist have continuous characters you're attracted towards?

No. I don't like having crushes on multiple characters from the same series.

Thanks! It is fun reading everyones replies. Nice to know others have warm and fuzzy feelings for fictional characters as adults too.

That seems to be pretty common as far as "patterns" goes. Mature and stoic characters can definitely be charming, especially when their past and reason for being so mature is flushed out.

But I also agree on the multiple character thing. I've never liked multiple characters from one series. Just feels weird, as silly as it sounds.

Ok I have to join in the love for Data. I feel a really strong emotional attachment towards him. It's because he is so adorable, pure-hearted at his core, and childlike I feel motherly towards him, and at the same time he is so impressively intelligent and powerful. He also reflects many of the best parts of humanity not only in himself but in the way others act towards him, like his friendship with Geordi or how Picard will defend him to the end.

Alistair used to be my main (still is one of them because first love hey), but after romancing Zevran there was no going back to anything else.
His romance was surprisingly cute and mature and i liked how it progressed and how they showed his feelings. How he treated the warden killed me.
Also i was weak on the kneees when i clicked him and he called me "amor".
Still super pissed about his treatment by bioware. Hey every romance is present in inquisition… except zevran! you get a shitty letter that you might not even recieve if you do not finish certain table missions correctly! oh! and also! we fucked his design in DA2! And had him bugged to hell and back to the point he did not recognize you romanced him in 1! I love bioware, but fuck bioware.

Fucking mystic messenger. Men like Zen will never exist in real life and it hurts so much.

I'm going to deviate from vidya and animu for a minute here. Anyone else watching The Strain? I'd like to be in the middle of these two right here.

i really have to wonder what kind of husband he would be. he seems like he'd more devoted to politics than a wife.

also i totally agree with soldier 76, i actually prefer him older.

vladimir from league of legends is super hot to me now that his splash arts are getting updated.
pic related is a recent art update for one of his skins.

also, it helps that his voice is snobby and almost every line is a blood pun.(he's a vampire.) it makes me want to beat him up.
(the pic in the video is outdated)

Fuck, there's so much perfect husband material in LoGH. Although mine would be Yang Wenli.
