One of the reasons I started this column was to introduce people to lesser known characters. I decided to get back to the roots of Crushworthy Characters this week. There are only two books in the series that this week’s article focuses on. However, Read More
I’ve never really given villains their due. Sure, they are bad guys. They antagonize the protagonists and we are supposed to dislike them. But sometimes, the villain is just too crushworthy. You may end up liking them more than than the villain. And as Read More
I’ve noticed that female vampires do not get nearly enough attention as male ones. And when they are depicted, half the time they are insane or evil. A cool, evil vampiress isn’t always bad, but there should be more than one depiction of female Read More
When I decided to make this list, it was hard to narrow down the playing field. I didn’t realize how many vampires I did like. And I like the old-fashioned, "I’m a vampire and that’s great" type. I’m okay with some brooding that vampires do, and I like Read More
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year at Fandomania. I can completely delve into the supernatural. I’ve written a lot about vampires, werewolves, and so on, but I’ve never compiled a crushworthy list of hunters who keep the world safe. It’s the Read More

I fell in love with the Paper Magician trilogy. It was a magical and fun series to read and the steampunk elements gave it that extra bit of charm. The book also gave me an intensely charming character. It took till book #2 for the crush to really Read More
I’ve watched and read a lot of good things this past month. Thus, the idea to share them in an article was born. I’ve always been a bit of a fan converter. I'm usually the one found trying to get my friends into things. My recent success was getting my Read More
Not all crushworthy characters must be debonair, devastatingly beautiful, or have nice manners. Sometimes it’s sheer force of personality that nets you on this list. I have a fondness for characters that are really out there. I’ve noted that a lot guys Read More
I really do love the show Once Upon a Time. I just takes me some time to warm up to some characters. There are some I have loved right off, like Hook. Others, you know, I have loathed. Emma Swan is one I haven’t made up my mind about after four seasons. Read More
