Hi, hey, hello ~
I can’t be the only one that has fictional crushes … right?
( I’m looking at you, reader >.>)
Anyway, my youtube recommendations
(*cough* youtube is stalking me *cough*)
recommended a video called “Cartoon Crushes”…
I was like, hmmm, I still can remember the fictional characters that I use to have a crush on when I was little.
Note: Only experienced these “crushes” when I wasn’t in a relationship (so no. I didn’t emotionally cheat on my boyfriend at the time.)
Possibly the reason why I had experienced these “crush” on fictional characters is due to inconsistently watching the same tv show or movie, physical attraction, how flawless they are.
But clearly, if these fictional characters don’t show flaws, they are the flaws.
I mean, at less they can help you forget about your exes am I right?
So I will be sharing you the fictional crushes that I can remember. (Oh the good old days ~)
1. Ben Tennyson (Ben 10)
Omg. Ok, so I don’t know why I fell for Ben Tennyson(the younger version) when I was young. I mean, clearly, I watched Ben 10 a lot since it was always showing on Saturday morning cartoon shows but seriously? (Also, the ost is catchy af I must admit.)
2. Jin Kazama (Tekken)
I was definitely addicted to Tekken back then when I was in grade 5-6. I would play it all night and day during the school holidays. It’s because of his hairstyle and his personality that I actually had a liking for him. I think I even started unrealistic imagination about him and me together. So because of my imagination, I ended up creating a Tekken character of myself just so I could tag me and Jin as a “couple” (I don’t remember what I called my fictional character). What’s even funny was that I was also trying to convince my parents to let me do martial art classes (didn’t even get to do it because you know, lazy me.) I can definitely remember even having a hate for Ling Xiaoyu (another Tekken character who was best friends with Jin during their high school years, alongside her having a crush on him).
3. Sora (Kingdom Hearts)
Oh my gosh. One reason why I would stay up and watch my brother play Kingdom Hearts till 1am in the morning on the first day of school. It is either the attraction to his blue eyes and spiky brown hair. Either way, I did have a mega crush on (young) Sora when I was in grade 3-4. Still shipping him with Kairi though!
4. Mark Tuan (GOT7)
I don’t know if you would call him fictional or not since you know, he’s actually a real human being but I could probably call him fictional since his a K-pop idol and he doesn’t know me IRL (sad life of a kpop fangirl TT-TT) but anyways, I definitively had somewhat of a huge, huge mega HUGE crush on this guy. He’s quiet and good-looking, his laugh so so freaken adorable, he knows how to speak English (born in America!), he knows how to do martial arts and the list goes on forever. Although there are plenty of other girls who experience the same mega crush for this guy so, put me on the line. 🙁
5. Talon (League of Legends)
Ever since I started to have an idea of creating my own League character (imagination PLEASE!), I pretty much decided to why not have some type of storyline relationship with some other character in League. I picked Talon for a reason. His lore is quite sad, gonna be honest but it actually has some kind of effect on me even though I don’t have any kind of same past history as him. Also, can I just admit how attracting it is for an assassin to be mysterious? Guys that wear hoodies to cover their forehead though ~
That’s pretty much all the fictional crushes I could remember. I don’t include the ones where I had a quick attraction because then the list would go on like foreverrrrrrr.
One important part, don’t let fiction overtake reality.
Legit, I only realised that because once you get hooked up in your own imaginative world, you won’t be able to focus on your reality and everyday life.
Remember that they are of course FICTIONAL so it’s better to fall in love with real people than you know, cartoon characters.
If you had any fictional character crush, feel free to leave it in the comments!
