My Crush is a literary character KJ style Part 1

Well I’ve been on Sparklife a lot lately, since I’m in the middle of learning form y english exam in two weeks. And I found a lot of those “My Crush is a literary/fictional character” and they’re quite funny and entertaining.
You can find most of the English classic literature in those posts so I found, why not do something like this for German classics? You may not know them but I can tell you these guys are definitely swoon worthy:

  1. Marquise d’Posa: He comes to life between the pages of Friedrich Schillers Don Karlos. He is not just the best friend of the protagonist but he also fights for what he wants more. And he’s not an egoist fighting for his own sake, he’s fighting for the ordinary people and their right to think for themselves. So in Spain somewhere around 1560 he speaks against the king and does not even fear the inquisition.

  1. Leonce:(Don't ask me, how that name is pronounced ;) The Protagonist of Georg Büchners Leonoce and Lena is a brooding prince who stands up against his father. He wants to be able to marry who ever he wishes and not who his father sees fit for him. That guy’s fighting for love! What more do girls like us want?

  1. Mephisto: And here comes the devil himself! In Johann Wolfgang von Goethes Faust this funny and scheming man has a deal with Doctor Faust. If Mephisto works for Faust in this world and shows him the good sides of life, Faust will work for him in the next world. Though Mephistos attempts don’t always work out as planned (thanks to Gretchen!) he is mysterious and a bad boy with every ounce of his body.

  1. Lukas Leander: Well, actually he is not a classical character, but I started crushing on him immediately when we “met” the first time. I was twelve and he came to my mind as soon as I thought of “literary crush material”. Lukas is the younger brother of Laura which has her own book series by Peter Freund. He is intelligent and a true nerd. So honestly why should I not fall for a blond guy like him?
  1. Dustfinger: The mysterious Dustfinger from Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart trilogy is not sure on which side he stands. And he is not classical, too. But let’s face it: I don’t care at all. He’s a loner, he can do magic tricks with fire, he’d do everything for the woman he loves and for God’s sake he has a horned mader named Gwin. (I would marry him for his pet, which is like the cutest little thing ever!) Dustfinger is hot you can’t deny it!

So these are the five most crushable German literary guys. You know one of them? Who are your literary crushes? And don’t forget to visit Sparklife, since it has the best blog series you can possible think of!
I hope I’ll have time to post another list like this, with more “global” characters :D But I do believe all those books have been translated into English. So maybe you agree with me here J
Best wishes and a lot of great book characters too crush on
KJ

  1. Oh and you would definitely find Adrian Ivashkov from Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series and Jace Wayland from Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter series battling for my non classic version of this list :D
