Follow Friday: A Visit From Mr Darcy

Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee's View. This week, her featured blogger is Erika from Let's Talk About Books, who asks: "ACK! Your favorite book/movie character (example Hermione Granger played by the Emma chick) just walked into the room! Who is it and what would be your first reaction? You get extra points if you include visual stimulation."

This is tough, because there are a helluva lot of characters I LOVE, but if I had to choose just one I'd go with Mr Darcy from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, for all the obvious reasons - he's handsome, intelligent, witty, kind, passionate, caring and has a very large... estate.

As for my reaction? This pretty much says it all...

  8. Same choice!! Colin Firth is my favorite Mr. Darcy!! Although, I also love the 1940 version with Sir Lawrence Olivier.

    So, totally unrelated... but you wouldn't happen to be a Disney fan by any chance?? I ask because my college roommates and I were all so into it that we decided each of us would have a different princess kind of like a patron saint. Obviously, mine's Belle, hence: I love your blog. Haha Okay, I'll stop rambling...

  20. That gif made me choke on my biscuit laughing!

    While I don't feel quite the same way about Mr Darcy (I think he's a bit of a douche really, although I feel that way about everyone in P&P so that could be the issue), I would definitely swoon if Colin Firth walked in the door.

    That special spot in my heart (yes, HEART) is reserved for Severus Snape though ;)
