Crushed

Funny this meme should come around just now, since last week one of my buddees and I were discussing this very thing. So, in chronological order of crushing, here are five crushes I've had on fictional characters:

Age 11: Hawkeye Pierce, from M*A*S*H. I even read all the M*A*S*H novels, which I suspect I wouldn't have been allowed to do at the age of 11 had my parents any idea what went on in them.

Age 12: Dan Mangan, from the Trixie Belden series. Thus begins my career of crushing on secondary characters. Dan didn't even show up until book eight of the series, and after that he kept being left out whenever the other characters would travel somewhere.

Age 13: Bob Andrews, from The Three Investigators Series. Records and Research. Woot!

Age 14: Peregrin Took, from The Lord of the Rings. I also had a crush on Frodo, but I crushed on Pippin something awful for many years. Strangely enough, never really had a crush on Legolas, even though he became my favorite character sometime in high school.

Age 14: Saul Panzer, from Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe novels. To steal a phrase from someone's Vetinari icon, "Competence is sexy."

Strangely enough, none of these crushes has really faded, except for the one on Hawkeye. Well, I suppose I can be forgiven for being fickle at age 11.
