Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about those fictional crushes! You know, those characters that you love and adore and get under your skin so much you wish they were real? Exactly, who I’m talking about here! Now, I did a top ten fictional crushes not too long ago, so for this topic, I decided to veer off a bit and explore some of my TV crushes in particular.

The TV crushes I mentioned in my previous Top Ten Tuesday, Pacey Witter (Dawson’s Creek) and Bellamy Blake (The 100), are of course still very high on my fictional tv crush list, but to switch it up a bit, I present to you: ten MORE fictional tv crushes! (Also, yes, there are plenty more where they came from. I love a lot of fictional characters, okay?)

Peter Bishop (Fringe)

Fringe - Peter Bishop

Okay, so maybe my obsession with Pacey Witter and all things Joshua Jackson has something to do with this. But still, Peter Bishop is still a great character in his own right!

Oz (Buffy The Vampire Slayer)

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Oz

Ah, Oz. In my teenage years, whenever I wasn’t thinking about Pacey Witter, I was probably thinking about Oz. Angel who? Oz was the real deal, y’all!

Matt Murdock (Daredevil)

Daredevil - Matt Murdock

Granted, I have loved the character of Matt Murdock even when he was still being played by Ben Affleck (don’t sue me), but Charlie Cox has made my love for the character grow even more.

Alec Lightwood (Shadowhunters)

Shadowhunters - Alec Lightwood

The Shadowhunters TV show has several amazing characters so it’s difficult to choose just one, but Alec is really standing out to me. I love his personality and I love his scenes with basically everybody, but especially Magnus (naturally). It also helps that he looks like Matthew Daddario, let’s be honest here.

Dean Winchester (Supernatural)

Supernatural - Dean Winchester

It took me the longest time to decide who I loved more, Dean or Cas. (Sorry Sam, you weren’t ever really in the running here). But in the end, Dean’s my man!

The clones (Orphan Black)

Orphan Black

When you can’t choose a character because they are all so amazing and wonderful and you’re in love with all of them and luckily they are clones and played by the same (genius) actress so you tell yourself you can just choose ’em all! Sidenote: I must continue bingeing Orphan Black because I’m so behind!

Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls)

Gilmore Girls - Jess Mariano

Yeah. Sorry Dean. Sorry Logan. I’ve been #TeamJess ever since his very first scene and stayed that way until the very last episode and into the revival.

Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars)

Veronica Mars

I’m a marshmellow for Veronica Mars. The sass. The wit. The sleuthing. The magnificent one-liners and comebacks. Be still my beating heart.

Grim Reaper (Goblin)

Goblin - Grim Reaper

The Grim Reaper is pretty much my ideal crush: tall, dark and adorably awkward. His bromance with Goblin also is the cutest.

Lee Yoon-Sung (City Hunter)

City Hunter - Lee Yoon-Sung

Lee Yoon-Sung and his quest for revenge stole my heart. Not many men can look this good while donning any disguise, hacking their way into top secret files and holding their own in a spoon fight. Yes, you heard me. Spoon fight <3

Have you watched any of these shows? If yes, feel free to fangirl with me! Also, WHo are some of your favorite fictional tv crushes?


  1. Charlie Cox OWNS that role of Matt Murdock, I love what he does w/ that. And yes the CLONES… I wish I would have picked them. 🙂

    I need to watch Veronica Mars someday.

    1. Exactly, he plays the role SO WELL! And the clones, ah, I need to catch up with Orphan Black so badly.

  2. Love seeing Jess on a list of favorites. I’ve always been Team Jess too.

    Have a great week.

    1. Yes, Team Jess forever 😉

  3. What a fun twist on this week’s topic! A lot of these characters are new to me, but I completely agree with you on being Team Jess and also on Matt Murdock. Love them both!

    1. Jess and Matt are both such amazing characters indeed <3

  4. It’s funny that you feel torn between Dean and Cass on Supernatural because I’ve always felt torn between Sam and Cass. 😀

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Haha, guess we have our love of Cass in common then 😀

  5. Yes the clones are the best!! I still need to finish the last couple of seasons but they are awesome. Great list!!

    1. They are amazing! I still need to catch up on the last few seasons too, but I’ll think I’ll also rewatch the first ones and have an Orphan Black binge-fest 🙂

  6. I haven’t watched any of these shows?? Like, how? I thought I was on top of my TV shows game.. This is such a clever twist on this week’s prompt, btw! Loved reading your post!

    1. Ah no worries, there really are sooo many good shows on TV, it’s impossible to watch them all. Like how we’ll never really conquer our TBR’s either 😉

      1. Oh don’t remind me of my giant TBR.. My heart can’t take it..

        Anyway, I did a “Would you rather” book tag and tagged all my favorite blogs, including yours!

        If you’d like, you can check it out here :

        1. Thanks so much for the tag! Will definitely check it out 🙂

  7. Totally with you on Peter and Oz. <3 And Dean. Of course Dean.

    1. Yay for some Peter and Oz love 🙂 And Dean – naturally!

  8. Ah, I’d take either one of the Winchester boys! And yes to Matt Murdock – he’s such a brilliant lawyer, besides all the crime-fighting stuff, and I love that!

    1. Haha, yeah they’re both amazing though for some reason I’ve always been so fond of Dean 🙂 And Matt Murdock, yes <3

  9. Yay for Magnus and Alec, love love love them!!

    1. Alec and Magnus are some of my absolute favorites <3

  10. Yeeeees, #TeamJess all the way. I`m so angry with the revival and in my mind, that never happened. Jess and Rory reunited in New York, end of story. I`m also having trouble picking between Dean and Cas, though Cas would probably win.

    1. OMG yes, the revival did so NOT go the way I was hoping it would. But I like your alternate turn of events, so let’s consider that canon 🙂
      It’s a tough call between Dean and Cas, they’re both so amazing!

  11. One of my writing friends really liked “Fringe,” but I never did start that journey. Who knows! Perhaps someday if I decide I *need* (*sarcasm*) another show, I’ll give this one a try. 🙂

    1. Haha, don’t we always “need” more shows? 😉

  12. My favorite out of these is Buffy The Vampire Slayer and I also loved Oz! Also I used to be super obsessed with Veronica Mars. Haha 😀

    1. Yay, a fellow Oz fan 🙂 Veronica Mars is amazing 🙂

  13. Oooh, we share quite a few character crushes… Peter, Oz, Alec, Dean… However I have always been Team Logan, sorry Jess!

    Check out my Top 10 Book Boyfriends HERE

    1. Logan defintely wasn’t too bad either, but my heart never got over Jess 🙂

  14. LOVE Veronica! And Oz…when watching it as an adult, I was all about Oz, but when I was a teenage girl, all I wanted was that sweet sweet Angel angst

    1. Veronica’s amazing 🙂 And yeah, I can totally see the appeal in Angel, but for some reason my heart always belonged to Oz 🙂

  15. Ah yes! I’m totally with you on Jess. Love him.

    1. Jess is amazing 🙂

  16. Hmmm, I’ve never watched Fringe. It’s on my list though – one day when I get time to watch TV! 🙂

    I LOVED Buffy and Oz is/was such a cool character. I also loved Angel though, especially in his own series.

    I haven’t watched any of the Daredevil series either! I wanted to try it though.

    I tried to watch Shadowhunters but UNFORTUNATELY I didn’t make it through the first episode…. I love the books and I just couldn’t do it!

    I don’t know why I never watched Supernatural?

    Orphan Black is another on my watchlist!!!!! It looks amazing.

    Gilmore Girls. 🙂 I still need to rewatch all of them!

    Awesome list!!!

    1. I hope you’ll get to a lot of these when you get some TV time 🙂 ESPECIALLY Orphan Black though, it’s amazing! And Daredevil too 🙂 And Fringe… Ok I loved all of them 🙂
      I loved the Angel series as well! Definitely need to rewatch that again soon.
      Yeah the Shadowhunters TV show unfortunately isn’t really good. I haven’t watched any of the latest episodes, but I’m basically only watching for Alec and Magnus. Ok and Simon. But the books are definitely MUCH better.
      I recently rewatched Gilmore Girls, but a rewatch will definitely be needed again soon anyway 😉

  17. I’m cracking up at Oz! XD I was 100% Team Spike! And yes to Dean! I love him! Great list!

    1. I could totally be convinced by Spike as well 🙂 And Dean’s amazing indeed 🙂

  18. I love Jess from Gilmore Girls. I completely agree with him over logan and dean. I even loved that actor in Heroes.
    Check my Top Ten Tuesday out at Amethyst Blue

    1. Yay Team Jess 🙂 And Milo Ventimiglia definitely was amazing on Heroes as well <3

  19. Oz was the man until he cheated. 🙁 I know it wasn’t his fault, but the way he handled it was horrible.

    Oh and Dean. So there. 🙂 Also love Veronica Mars. Would totally love to be a bestie.

    1. Yeah, I hated that storyline! I thought it totally didn’t fit his character and was just a crappy way to write him out of the show… (still peeved about it)
      Dean <3 And Veronica would make an amazing bestie :)

  20. Hi, what a lovely post!! <3 OMG YES TO CITY HUNTER and GRIM REAPER!! And second nods to Dean and Alec!!! GAH, SUCH a great Idea!!

    This week I twisted the topic and talked about why fall in love with characters…

    1. Yay, another City Hunter and Grim Reaper fan! <3 And yeah, definitely Dean and Alec too :)

  21. I miss Fringe! 😀

    Lauren @ Always Me

    1. Me too! Time for a rewatch 🙂

  22. Dean. I love him too. I always tell my hubs that if Dean Winchester ever walked out of the screen, he’s my hall pass! ?

    Ashley @ Caught Reading Redheaded

    1. Haha, I like that idea of Dean Winchester being your hall pass! Totally understandable 😉

  23. AHH DEAN WINCHESTER! He’s kinda my first tv crush haha. ALSO I’M SO HAPPY YOU PUT IN SOME K-DRAMA CHARACTERS HERE. It’s so rare for me to see them appear in the blogosphere. I haven’t watch City Hunter but I LOVE GRIM REAPER. He’s my favorite part of Goblin <3

    1. I couldn’t make this list without DEAN, could I? 😉 And ah, yay, another kdrama fan! We are so little out here on the blogosphere! Grim Reaper is definitely my favorite part of Goblin as well <3

  24. Hello, fellow Belgian book blogger!
    I loved Veronica Mars, Buffy and Fringe! So sad they’re all over!

    1. Oh, hi fellow Belgian book blogger! Nice to meet you 😀
      Those were all such fun shows! Luckily we can still rewatch regularly 🙂

  25. Matt Daddario is so pretty ? I stopped watching Supernatural (I used to be OBSESSED) and I was so so in love with Dean/Jensen.

    1. He totally is <3 Yeah, I haven't watched any of the last 2-3 seasons of Supernatural either but I'll love those boys forever (esp Dean ;) )
