Yet another installment of this fun little game. Here are the top five fictional men I wouldn’t mind being stranded alone with. As always the rule applies that there is no order to this list.
Of course Edward Cullen should also be on this list but I figured that was a given so here are the other five that I would group with him.
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy
Pride and Prejudice- How can anyone look down upon someone so carefully guarded of his personal life? There must be a good reason it is so hard to crack his serious exterior. Who doesn’t love Mr. Darcy?
Theodore ‘Laurie’ Lawrence
Little Women- I guess I’m always a sucker for the guy that confesses his love only to be turned down. It really takes guts to take that chance.
Balian de Ibelin
Kingdom of Heaven- This poor guy has lost his child, lost his wife (she killed herself after their baby died), had his father walk into his life, had his father die, survived a ship wreck, befriended a king, and fought for Jerusalem. How can anyone not want to be a part of this very dynamic character’s life?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen
Twilight- He’s completely altruistic, family oriented, and 100% committed to Esme (lucky woman). I’d be ok with being adopted even! (I only said that Edward wasn’t on this list)
Any and all of Christine Feehan’s Carpathian men. Wikipedia describes them best.
The Dark Series introduces the Carpathians, a powerful and ancient race. They have many gifts, including the ability to shape-shift, and extended life spans, living over 1000 years. Though they feed on human blood, they don’t kill their human prey, and for the most part live among humans without detection. Despite their gifts, the Carpathians are on the edge of extinction. There have been few children born to them in the past few centuries, and those that have been born are all male and often die in the first year. It has been more than 500 years since a female has been born. In the absence of their female counterparts, also known as “lifemates”, male Carpathians lose the ability to feel emotions and to see in color. The only feeling left to them is the thrill of making a kill. Once a male has done this, he loses his soul and “turns”, becoming the monster of human legend, the vampire or the “undead”. With so few females left, males are forced to make a stark choice: either become vampire or “greet the dawn” (i.e. commit suicide). However, when they do find a lifemate, the ability to see in color and their emotions are restored to them, and their souls are saved.
