5. Charlie, the narrator of The Perks of Being a Wallflower
And I refuse to have feelings for movie-him, Logan Lerman him. I never really had a clear picture of book Charlie, but I loved him. Legitimate deep love. I’m almost afraid to read the book again, just because I remember loving it and loving him so much. It was perfect for that time of my life, and I want to keep it perfect in my heart. But I have always loved the awkward ones, yes.
4. Shawn Ashmore
Here seen with Anna Paquin in X2, because, really… that’s the only context in which I ever had a thing for him. Sweet little Bobby Drake, who is… not so much my type anymore, but back in the day, I thought he was really cute. (Also, this is one reason why I disliked X-Men: The Last Stand. I hated that they had to go and screw with Bobby/Rogue, which was totally my jam for a while there. I hated that they had to go and screw with them as individuals and as a pair. I don’t know a damn thing about comic Bobby, but movie Bobby… even if it was implausible, I loved him and Rogue at first.)
3. Anna Paquin
Man, I adored her. First in X-Men, and I will disclaim that I also do not know anything about comic Rogue, so I thought movie Rogue was adorable (then, as mentioned, the third film came along, and I got cranky with everyone, but I will still defend the Rogue of the first two films forever)… then Almost Famous happened in my life. D’awww. Polexia is my girl. Everything about her is precious. Anna in general is darling. And much as I appreciate the pretty blonde Anna of nowadays, I really do miss the adorable slightly awkward brunette Anna of back then.
2. Zooey Deschanel
Again, Almost Famous. Again, I prefer her brunette, though she’s a cute blonde too (i.e. Elf, my first exposure to her). She’s just such a dear, and I’ve always been charmed by her. I just can’t imagine not thinking she was wonderful.
1. Patrick Fugit
Remember how I mentioned that my top three first crushes topped my eye color lists? Well, yep. Patrick Fugit (here seen as William in Almost Famous) will top every list he possibly can, ever. He is still my type. I’ve got a ridiculous crush on William as a character, I’ve got a ridiculous crush on Patrick in any context. He just makes me d’awww like very few people can, and I doubt that will ever change.
