    I was wondering if anyone else out there reads normal literature and finds themselves drawn to certain characters? As someone who is far less visually stimulated than many here I get many of my kiiks from writing and reading and my base is usually not in erotica, though it serves a purpose...So, does Dumas make your toes curl? Perhaps conan Doyle wrote a character you'd teach a lesson, or did you just read something with a particularly appealing flow? For all those that spout sonnets and would tame the shrew I ask you, who is it that thrills, top five and why? (extendable if there is a very good reason ;)

    Awesome idea for a thread my lovely!

    - Viola/Cesario (Twelfth Night) - Brave, selfless, just totally amazing!

    - Ophelia (Hamlet) - Tragically beautiful

    - Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing) - witty, headstrong

    - Constance Chatterly (Lady Chatterly's Lover) - wild and passionate

    - Breaking the trend and actually lusting after/being slightly in love with a GUY (shock horror) I'd say Levin in Anna Karennina. He seems entirely real to me, a complete person - beautiful, soulful and flawed.

    I don't really read fiction... Takes too much time and I find it rather inefficient, I like short pieces or I get bored.

    I don't find book people sexy.

    wouldn't say sexy, but Sabrial from "Abhorsen" by Garth Nix is attractive

    Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. The book was chosen for me for my higher English and I enjoyed it so much they never got their book back.

    Really? See I've heard a lot of girls like a bit of Heathcliff and I was expecting this great romantic hero when I read Wuthering Heights but actually all I saw was a miserable abusive bully! Can I ask what the attraction for you is?

    He was rather a cruel bully after Catherine married Edgar. It was more his younger self that I liked, I was 17 at the time and felt drawn to his character as a troubled soul who lost out on the woman he loved due to his lack of status even though she loved him as much as he did her.

    Ahhh that makes a bit more sense! Yes he wasn't always a b*stard as you say just a bit of a tearaway...if you're into the rebelious type I can see the appeal of a younger Heathcliff

    I think the book was just a bit of a shock to my teenage self, I was expecting to be reading a beautiful romance and got an incredibly depressing story about a violent meanie!

    Yes not really a good introduction to romance and was not my own choice of book but what I had picked did not have enough substance for a higher english paper but it was a book I enjoyed reading.

    Now that I have Benedict Cumberbatch as a visual, reading Sherlock Holmes has a got a lot more exciting.
