I'm reading through John Conolly's Charlie Parker series...and I have to say, I wouldn't say no...

But that might just be Kit Harington's portrayal of the character. grin

I know Three - he's all principled and you can practically smell the testosterone from here grin

Second vote for Rupert Campell-Black!

Jay Gatsby
Patrick Pennington (KM Peyton)
Will or Mark Russell (Flambards)
Patrick Merrick (ANtonia Forest)

Ooh, also Viking O'Neill.

Oh, how could I forget! Richard Sharpe. Beats all my previous suggestions hands down.

Phineyj Sun 27-Jan-13 20:44:48

Patrick Merrick! That's a blast from the past.

This is fun.

YY to Sirius Black, Sam Vimes and Rupert Campbell-Black too. And Captain Carrot. And is it very warped of me to wonder what Havelock Vetinari would be like?

Oh, and Chrestomanci.

I always lower the tone at about this point in these threads and say Julian from the Famous Five. I bet he would have been lovely to lose one's virginity to. smile

Phineyj Sun 27-Jan-13 20:46:41

Hmm I always wondered about Uncle Quentin...

KatyPeril Sun 27-Jan-13 20:47:38

Jay Gatsby and Thorne. Also, Tyrion Lannister, worryingly.

Mr Darcy
Colonel Brandon
Eric Northman

Not very original am I?

<snigger> Remus

Julian would be so uptight - he wouldn't want to get his hair mussed up. You be better off with Dick grin

Jude the Obscure particularly played by Christopher Eccleston in the film

TaggieCampbellBlack Sun 27-Jan-13 20:50:13

Rupert Campbell-Black
Zaphod Beeblebrox
Aramis
Mr Darcy
Simon Serallier
Henry DeTamble

Dick Diver before he becomes a ruined roue

Adam Dagleish

Oh no - Julian deffo ready to let his hair down when not having to look all grown up in front of Ann and George.

Another vote for Colonel Brandon
But Willoughby sounds interesting if only he wasn't such a terrible cad.
Also Captain Hornblower.

EduCated Sun 27-Jan-13 20:55:07

I always imagined Dick to be, well, a bit of a dick grin I imagine Julian would be ever so polite and proper.

IAmLouisWalsh Sun 27-Jan-13 20:56:27

Rupert Campbell-Black and most of his friends
Lord Peter Wimsey
Aragorn

Never thought of Sam Vimes in that way but have now

And, shamefully, Inspector Rebus....

Wallison Sun 27-Jan-13 20:58:37

Heathcliff. Fucking Heathcliff. And then he could dig up my dead body and mash his head against a tree.

Wallison Sun 27-Jan-13 20:59:36

But then, once all the passion had subsided, I would do the decent thing and marry Gabriel Oak.

TaggieCampbellBlack Sun 27-Jan-13 21:02:29

Hamish Macbeth

Edward Cullen (sorry, but I would)

aJumpedUpPantryBoy Sun 27-Jan-13 21:04:34

Ooh Wallison I love Gabriel Oak but I wouldn't throw Sergeant Troy or Boldwood out of bed either
