Booking Through Thursday asks:

“Have you ever fallen in love with a fictional character? Who and what about them did you love?”

I suppose you could say that Mr. Darcy was my first fictional crush. I’ve thought that he’s way more awesome than any other fictional male since I was five. As an adult, I can say that I love how his character grows while remaining true to his established sense of “Self”, for lack of a better term. At the age of five, however, he rode a cool horse that was black and thus dubbed “Thunder”, and therefore was awesome.
