You voted for your favorites in Round 1 of Swoon Madness, and we’re finishing Round 2 this weekend with your favorite PARANORMAL PRETTY BOYS and CLASSIC CATCHES!
PARANORMAL PRETTY BOYS:
Ethan: Ethan is from the Deep South so you know he has great manners. He’s funny. He’s tall and athletic (best on his basketball team) but he also loves Lena so much that he’s willing to die for her. He goes to the Great Beyond for her. He dreams about her before he even meets her. Swoon. Worthy. (PLL Trendsetter Emily)
Kingsley: Fdskjfhnsdkfsdha! He’s a sarcastic, bitter, angsty, moody, and depressive vampire who somehow manages to make me fall in love every time I read the books. He’s hard on the outside, but it soft and mushy on the inside. (PLL Trendsetter Bre)
Dimitri: Dimitri is just so incredibly attractive. I don’t mean physically, necessarily – after all, our images of him are our own – but as a character. Protective, brave and just all-around studly, I definitely think he’s pretty wonderful. (PLL Trendsetter Abbie)
Jace: Jace Wayland is a fighter. Jace and Clary have on of the most twisted relationships, but he fights for her always, even though it is destroying him. Jace realizes that his love for Clary is something to fight for. (PLL Trendsetter Corinne)
Patch: Mysterious and edgy describe the wonderful Patch, whose real name is Jev. His capability to love on such a massive level make me appreciate him so much, not to mention his wit that he uses so often to flirt that it has all the girls swooning. On top of that, he is very protective and caring for Nora since she is all he has left to hold onto in his crazy life. (PLL Trendsetter Alexandra)
Daemon: The cruel and cold front he usually puts up is really just for show—don’t fear it. What I love most about this character is his progressive development into a caring person and his willingness to open up, even just a little, to Katy (a stranger to him). Although he hides a lot, it is only to keep everyone safe, which is usually why he keeps Katy at arms length. However, as the story line progresses, we start to see him change and suddenly he realizes that it is not just about him – but about this new girl whose changed his life, too. (PLL Trendsetter Alexandra)
Simon: Were these people to exist in real life, I’m pretty sure Simon is the only one I’d actually be compatible with. Because, let’s face it – he’s the only one who actually has the interests of the guys I know, nerdy interests that I share in fact, and (aside from being a vampire), he’s just a normal guy. I would feel so fortunate to have him as a boyfriend, or even as a friend, and I know we’d get along very well. (PLL Trendsetter Abbie)
Daniel: Dan is my one and only fictional love (well, there are others, but he is by far my favorite). When you first meet him, he seems very rough and unlikable, but once you get to know him, it turns out he is quite nice and incredibly intelligent. He also wears a cool hat. (PLL Trendsetter Maddie)
Percy Jackson: Percy Jackson is the classic guy next door even though he’s the son of a powerful Greek god. What can I say, I’m a sucker for dark hair paired with light eyes, but the fact that I look like Annabeth has nothing to do with it. (Kidding, that is such a lie.) –(PLL Trendsetter Corinne)
Harry Potter: I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten. I love how sarcastic he is. (PLL Trendsetter Erin)
Mr. Darcy: Darcy is hands down my favorite Austen boy; chivalrous, misunderstood, protective and ridiculously selfless. If you push back the occasional douchiness in the beginning of the novel, he’s the epitome of the golden boy. Points for his letter too :3 (PLL Trendsetter Michelle)
Marcus: At six feet tall and perpetually in an ironic t-shirt, it’s hard not to fall for his snark and mischievous grin.
Noah: Even when he’s not played by Ryan Gosling, he’s still passionate and completely devoted to you, through thick and through thin. Ideal if you enjoy making out in thunderstorms.
Ron: Don’t let him fake you out: he DEFINITELY likes you. It just might take him seven years to finally kiss you. Plus with his ginger hair, you’d never lose him in a crowd.
Mr. Rochester: Smoldering and forbidden with secrets in the attic. Hotter when blind?
Gilbert: Tall and handsome, he’s undaunted by a long distance relationship and isn’t too proud to propose more than once.
You have until SUNDAY NIGHT (March 17th, 9PM EST) to vote for your favorites in each category!
