Literacy Characters You'd Sleep With?

Some website has compiled a list of 15 Literacy Characters We'd Totally Sleep With. (The list is apparently compiled by women or gay men, because they are all male.) It made me wonder, who are the literary characters you'd sleep with?

I'm trying to think of others who would be on my list. I'm thinking Sidney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities. I don't know what it was about him—certainly not his chronic depression—but I liked him a lot. It must have been that whole redeeming-himself-at-the-end thing.

I read so many romance novels, which are pretty much written around male characters women would want to sleep with, so I'm having trouble limiting it down to specific characters. Ha.

Anyone else want to chime in?

Hm, I think mine are all the ones you'd expect: Edward Cullen, Rhett Butler, and Mr. Darcy. Although I would throw in there Westley from The Princess Bride and Jake Brigance from A Time to Kill.

Ooh, good one with Jack Brigance!

Mr. Rochester!

Umm. Maybe I just have a really short list, haha. No, it's longer. Goodness me, Mr. Thornton from "North and South" must be #2! Darcy, sure. Westley is a good idea! Possibly Mr. Weston from "Agnes Grey". Zaphod Beeblebrox would be interesting. ;)
