So, to avoid thinking about what I should be thinking about, I'm thinking about why I love Bobby Goren.
He's smart, of course, and I find smart very attractive. He's also shy, even a little embarrassed, by his brains, and that's very attractive as well. But he's also strong and vulnerable at the same time. He's protective, and has the physical, intellectual, and emotional strength to protect people. But he's also very vulnerable, and I find I want to take care of him. It's a very enthralling combination.
He has the advantage of being a fictional character. If he were real, he'd be enormously frustrating to deal with, I'm sure.
Oooh, what a dangereous thread to walk into when I should be doing other things....but I'm with you there, patcat!
I love Bobby Goren because he seems to be the incarnation of another fictional character I fell in love with long before I met Bobby Goren. That character is a cop in a fictional city called Ankh-Morpork and is based on New York. He has a very strong feeling for justice and is absolutely incorrupt. He hates injustice in general, but he really HATES injustice that is based on social disadvantages. He has a personal joy in arresting a rich person or a person with influence because that one thought he could get away with anything for being rich or important. And Goren is even better, because he is much more iliterate. He is very open for anything new and he loves to learn. That is one of the things I find the most attractive in a man (in anyone, actually): Open-mindedness.
And you're right with that one, too: it is actually good he's not real. Although we all wish.....
