I hate to say it, but yes, I did have a crush on a female character. She started off as just a shoe-in for a main story I was doing which was beginning to go stale. And I realised a sexy, happy female charcater would be good to shake things up a little.
Anyway, over time I wrote more of her and had her go through thick and thin. But it was when I had her sit down by herself talking or wishfully thinking that, to my horror, I found I was having a crush on her! She started becoming more real to me than real people!
To cut a long story short I had her killed off. It`s not good falling in love with a woman that actually doesn`t exist.
I've fallen in love with some of my characters, but not in the sense of "crush"... more like in "I totally love writing this character, and want to see how they develope, and what their secrets are, and how they'll handle the situation..."
Stuff like that.
In the sense of "crush", no. They're no real people. At least not in this reality. And if teenage-crushing on Mr Spock, and tons of other TV characters has taught me one thing, crushing on fictional characters is even more futile than crushing on real life people! :-)
I'll get it off my chest: if you mean a OC from a comic here.. then Miimi, she's another reincarnation of a character I've put in nearly every thing I wrote in some way shape or form... After doing her initial story: I've unconsciously and eventually intentionally put her nearly every single thing I've put my hands on, with different looks and personalities but still the same person/nature. It might be more of obsession at this point, as I've put her in stories even when she wouldn't fit in/have small parts..
She also has different names, "Miimi" is only this incarnation's name and this one was particularly fun to draw...
I'll admit that I created my character Erica to be the embodiment of my ideal woman, but as far as having actual romantic feelings for her, no, that's just ridiculous. She's the product of my imagination and my pencil, nothing more.
I mean, the first sketches of Lilith was just a random girl that I found attractive, but once I developed a personality for her my mind went "oh hell no", haha.
I have to say I like Nathan, but more in a "I wish I had someone like that" way.
So no, I guess I don't really have a crush on any of my characters.
I wouldn't say I have a crush because I'm married and I've outgrown these things, but I suppose Utterson has a lot of the qualities my husband does in personality and Hyde does have my husband's silliness which I adore.
