I'm reading through John Conolly's Charlie Parker series...and I have to say, I wouldn't say no...

Louis: my alter-ego HarrietVane might not be in use...

Ethan Frome, poor bugger. He could do with a laugh.

lady peter - I am very, very envy at your nickname

LadyPeterWimsey Thu 14-Feb-13 21:47:30

So Wimsey is MINE. Obvs.

But Biggles might have been my first love.

Ladytron Thu 14-Feb-13 21:35:49

Can I chuck into the mix my selection?

Carver Doone
Matthew Bartholomew
yes yes to Lan, but not sure about Mat Cauthon
And Jondalar from Earth's Children series, preferably whittling something

Yes to Adam Dalgliesh - he could write poetry for me smile

jesse I'm with you on Will from the Subtle Knife. Even though he is 13. It's more of a 'if I were a 12 year old girl' crush.

Inigo definite yes to Aragorn but no to Legolas (the elves always seem a bit too spiritual for me grin). As for Gandalf, I've always imagined him to be gay (a la Dumbledore).

Mr Rochester (The Toby Stephens one!)
Jem from Jamaica Inn (blush)

Adam Dalgliesh anyone?

Ooh, where to start?

Inigo (obviously!) - Westley always seemed a bit of a wuss to me!

Aragorn and Legolas

Also, has anyone else wondered what Gandalf might have been like in his younger days? blush

Lots of detectives and similar - Holmes, Wimsey (and I can speak French!), Alleyn, Beringar...

Luthe (the Hero and the Crown) - and I agree on Corlath too

I seem to remember Howl and some of the other DWJ ones too, but it's so long ago - must re-read them sometime!

Zal (Justina Robson)

Oh, Mercutio too! And the musketeers, sort of collectively (except Porthos..)

Ned Stark (from the books - not seen the TV series yet!)

I'm sure there are more, but my memory is crap so that's all I can come up with for now!

Elvis Cole, Joe Pike from the Robert Crais books, and Salvo Montalbano, from the TV series not the books.

Mat Cauthon, he'd know what he was doing and he's be fun and charming and cheerful.

No broody emo-teens for me thanks.

Trills Sun 10-Feb-13 19:20:57

Will from the Subtle Knife is 13 Jesse!

Trills Sun 10-Feb-13 19:20:34

Jon Snow wouldn't know where to put it.

tumbletumble Sun 10-Feb-13 19:12:38

Davey Warbeck. Mmmmmm.

Agree with pointythings, Elric doesn't really do it for me either.

cocolepew Sat 02-Feb-13 16:54:21

Lucas Davenport.

Notafoodbabyanymore Sat 02-Feb-13 15:58:13

Horatia, I'd love to!

pointythings Sat 02-Feb-13 14:48:50

cooroo not sure about Elric, he's always so gloooooomy. I'd do Moonglum, though!

ZacharyQuack Sat 02-Feb-13 12:16:21

Virgil Flowers.

That fuckin' Flowers.

Jessepinkman Sat 02-Feb-13 12:09:42

Who said Bigwig from Watership Down?

Jessepinkman Sat 02-Feb-13 12:09:01

Will from the Subtle Knife.
