Mel’s Big Ass Challenge Day 2: Your Crush

A letter to your crush. Hm.

Dear Crush,

You aren’t a real person, you can’t be. You are a conglomeration of attributes that no one person truly possesses. Which is okay. I know you could never be real so I’m not looking for you or comparing what I have to you.

You are all of the good (and most of the bad) traits of characters from books and movies that make me all gooey inside my head when I see them or read their stories. I know that if you ever really did exist your bad traits would quickly make you into not-a-crush but a serious-dislike. I guess my fantasies are how I get out the unhealthy dangerous type urges I have.  I’ll admit it – alphas attract me like nobody’s business, but a pure alpha would never be good for anything long term and I’m just not a fling type of gal. I need my alphas toned down a bit and somewhat civilized for a relationship and that’s basically what I have now. :)

You are the Comedian from Watchmen, Raylon Givens from Justified, Logen Nine Fingers from the First Law books, Robert Mitchum from Cape Fear, Tony Soprano from the Sopranos, Riddick from Pitch Black but also cute and quirky like Tank Girl.

Do you see why you have to stay fantasy? Do you begin to see a common thread? You are dangerous and when it comes right down to it, not very nice. You’ll stay safely in my head because I have made you out of unattainable fictions and that’s cool by me.

    I notice another trend with the characters you mention. There’s a lot of qualities they share that remind me of someone I’ve met…Who can’t clap…

      As I said, an alpha who is civilized enough for a relationship. That’s what I got. :)

  2. Larry says:

    Yes, that’s exactly what a crush should be about — a combination of characteristics — besides it’s not a crush if you let that person know you have a crush — it just gets messy (says he speaking from lack of experience in the crush area)

    I love that, I’m pretty certain the same “truth” applies to me too, I might love the guys in the books and films, but I think I’d have to throttle them if they were real, and I’d probably have a really big fictional character graveyard at the back of my house….so let’s just keep them to the printed word shall we :) at least that way they are there at my beck and call :0 (gee don’t I sound high maintenance)

  4. If I had to do your pattern as my crush, it would be Rorschach from Watchmen, Dexter, John McClain from Die Hard, Sam Axe from Burn Notice, and maybe a bit of Clint Eastwood in any and every movie he has made :)

    Yeah, mine’s kinda boring.

    And I have to agree with Phil, though I only had the pleasure of meeting OAM for a brief time :)

    My “crush” is sitting right beside me, right now. She has it all.

    • Nicole says:

      Well, you call her your Wonder Woman, small surprise that she is your ideal gal. :)
