    Fictional crushes

    What the title says.

    I often find myself crushing on various waifus (plus the rare husbando). These are a few of the more enduring ones:

    • Jean Grey (Claremont era X-Men)
    • Éowyn (Lord of the Rings)
    • Celes Chere (Final Fantasy VI)
    • Chidori Kaname (Full Metal Panic!)
    • Rin Tohsaka (Fate/stay night)

    What about you people?
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    I definitely share the latter two waifus as crushes.

    I remember liking the Black Cat when I was a wee boy watching the 90's Spider-man, but my first full-on fictional crush came when I was about 11-12 in the form of Priss from Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040. She was just so insanely cool to me - though with my recent rewatch, I identified pretty strongly with Linna

    Then we've got Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII, from high school. Not so different to Priss, really. I really like her design as well though.

    And then in University I read FSN and immediately became endeared to Rin. She is just so awesome, great choice there aldeayeah. And that lead me to FGO, which has so many waifus that I had to roll for... but it also showed me my true waifu, to stand above all others: Atalanta, the peerless huntress. That's cause she was the first 4 star I rolled and I thought that was actually significant back then. WELP TOO EMOTIONALLY INVESTED NOW.

    So, all in all, and in order:

    • Priss Asagiri
    • Lightning Farron
    • Ichigo Kurosaki
    • Rin Tohsaka
    • Atalanta

    Discounting those that I simply like because of their looks and acts. I often really drawn to female characters that continue struggles to do the right thing, often realize or aware it was futile and hypocritical, but still continue anyway. And perhaps because I like well-composed, graceful and polite people, I often like those 'princess' archetypes in combination with the earlier.

    So people like Saber, Lacus Clyne (Gundam SEED), Disney Mulan, and Yuri Nakamura (Angel Beats!).

    Now if I narrow it down I only have a very few characters that I actually count as 'waifu crushes'. I can even be a little petty in defense of these characters, just like how I defend people I liked IRL.

    In comparison, I much more lenient toward male as a character. I probably like most male leads in most entertainments without much thought like those superheroes and shonen characters. But I wouldn't call any of them husbandos, more like people that I look up to.

    Sango from inuyasha. The first big sister character I really got to know and empirical evidence suggests influenced all of my future choices in waifu.

    Cool, smart, with a little steel underneath the surface and more then willing to jump onto a giant flaming tiger and regularly killing things much stronger and more powerful then her with a huge ass boomerang made from the bones of her previous kills.

    Crushes come and go, I used to be big on Misty, Hikari and Sailor Mercury as a kid, then came Utena, Lafiel, Eureka, Lacus and Chidori, then during the Haruhi boom I was obsessed with Yuki. CC and Rena Ryuuguu were big for me too. I still love em all dearly but not as much as I used to.

    But the ones that really keep enduring:
    Akari, Aika, Alice (Aria)
    Chihaya ([email protected])
    Sun-chan (seto no hanayome)
    Misaki (nhk)
    Estelle Bright
    Tsugumi(Ever17)

    Guess i dont really have any specific type huh?

    Honestly haven’t thought about this for some time.

    Uh, I guess from [email protected] it’s Kaede?

    I guess I tend to crush more on the VAs

    I'm sure I've had a couple short-lived fictional crushes, I guess, but the only one that readily springs to mind was a really minor character in an obscure fantasy series who lived and died in one chapter. Galya Dobronravova.

    I also (and always) love Rin, of course, but I'm not sure I'd term that as a "crush". More like... "admiration", I guess? An ideal to chase after? That sounds a bit too deep, lol.

    Also a cool character in her own right. Sadly, everyone not named Inuyasha, Kagome and - to a lesser extent - Sesshomaru were basically bit characters in that manga.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan in the distant past.

    I hop between various crushes few times a year, fair share of them happen to be fictional. The weirdest one, I believe, I had when I was a little girl. I was crushing on Voltron (the robot). Tho maybe it wasn't even that weird, I mean, those lips...

    I’m given to understand many a young lass engages in a long term relationship with a machine at some point. Usually when her husband/paramour becomes less then attentive

    It can actually be a lot of fun even when said husband / paramour is involved. wink wink nudge nudge

    Oh, yeah, forgot about the actual topic. Eh, let's see... Well, I used to have a crush on Rory Gilmore when I was younger. When I rewatched the series years later, she seemed a lot less adorable after a certain point - but I did get a crush on Lorelai. If talking strictly about characters who aren't played by flesh-and-blood people, I suppose there was Ayeka from "Tenchi Muyo".

    Quite a few of these: Sorry Kaname fans btw, I ship her too hard with Sosuke.

    Pre-Otaku life:
    Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
    Topanga Lawrence (Boy Meets World)
    Padme Amidala (Star Wars)

    Post-Otaku Life:
    Captain Tessa (FMP!) [Dubbed]
    Rosette Christopher (Chrono Crusade)[Dubbed]
    Noel Vermillion (BlazBlue) [Dubbed]
    Vette (Star Wars: The Old Republic) [I came to the conclusion that I like blue girls a bit too much a few years ago.]
    Saber [but only in her JP voice]
    Tamamo (Fate/EXTRA)
    Yuel (Granblue)
    Anila (Granblue Fantasy) (completely because of what she gave me for Valentine's Day)

    I'm pretty sure there are a few more, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

    ...You'll never guess which of those characters is most relevant to me...

    I vaguely remember having a bit of a crush on Daphne from Scooby Doo way back as a little kid. At least I had a... strong reaction whenever she got inevitably kidnapped by the monster of the week, which probably influenced my later damsel in distress fetish. For anime/manga stuff I'd say my major crush would be Ryuko Matoi from Kill La Kill. Her personality is the perfect mix of hot-blooded badassery and laid-back coolness that instantly endeared me to her. Not to mention her design is hot as hell. (Personally though, I always found her initial school uniform hotter than her Senketsu transformation. The JK style bared midriff really did it for me).

    A gentlefolk doesn't kiss-and-tell, so I'll just leave the most important ones, gathered over a decade of fandom.

    God Tier:
    -----------
    Illyasviel (F/sn)
    Sion (Melty, etc.)
    Akiha (Tsuki)
    Rei (Eva)
    Meltryllis (F/ECCC)
    Liz (F/ECCC)
    Tessa (FMP)
    Noel (BB)
    Altera (Fate)
    Abi (Fate)
    CC (CG)

    Demi-God Tier:
    ------------------
    Shuten (F/GO)
    Helena (F/GO)
    Anastasia (F/GO)
    Circe (F/GO)
    Reines (CF)
    Feldt (Gundam 00)
    Shinobu (-Gatari)

    Though, if I go through a title I'll usually end up crushing on at least someone by the end of it.

    Am I in the minority of just liking or enjoying characters but never actually feeling more than that

    In this neck of the woods? Maybe, but probably not.

    I'm about the same, honestly. I tend not to crush on characters. Also, I tend to ship romantic pairings between characters, which goes a long way to discouraging fic crushes. Probably why I never bought into the whole waifu-thing.

    Far too many to count, but the most powerful one in a long time is Ryuji from Persona 5
