Fictional Characters With Whom I Have Fallen In LoveTorre Healy

I have a little problem. I constantly let myself fall in love with fictional characters. This is easy to do since imagination is almost always better than reality. After watching the Ruby Sparks trailer, I had an amazing (and completely delusional) idea to take the best qualities of the fictional characters I love and combine them into one super human. If this super human just so happens to come alive and fall in love with me, then so be it!

Spiderman/Peter Parker. Just to clarify, I DO mean Spiderman, not Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire (or those lovely people on Hollywood Blvd.). Spiderman is the ultimate superhero. While he has the power to save the day, he stays grounded in who he is. Also, traffic is really bad in LA and I wouldn’t mind getting from point A to B via spidey web.

Chuck Bartowski. I’m literally the worst at technology. I am that girl that believes a prince is stranded in North Korea and needs my personal accounting information in order to escape. This is where Chuck comes in. He can fix a computer in no time, and if said prince comes to attack me he can protect me.

Noah Calhoun. I wouldn’t consider myself a “romantic”, but if someone wrote me love letters and built me a house I wouldn’t complain. (Note: Creepy @ mentions on twitter are not love letters).

Jack Dawson. Every girl needs a little adventure in their life, and that’s exactly what Jack brings to the table. I would NEVER let Jack “let go”.

Jim Halpert. Jim never takes himself too seriously. He also has the ability to pull off some pretty amazing pranks on Dwight.

Now, if only the perfect combination of these guys could come to life. What fictional characters have you fallen in love with?

Check out Ruby Sparks in theaters this Wednesday!

  11. oh and let’s not forget Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries! Because every girl loves a bad boy haha

  12. Hands down Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” and Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables!! Now someone please explain why beautiful people like these can’t exist in reality???

  13. Spencer Reid definitely! Tom from 500 days of Summer, Thor, Noah from the Notebook, Rick from the Mummy, Heath Ledger in basically everything, Derek Morgan in Criminal Minds and Nick from New Girl.
