Wednesday Blogging: Celebrity Crushes

Posted in Uncategorized

When I heard that today’s Wednesday Blogging topic was going to be “Celebrity Crushes,” I was like… well shit. How am I going to distinguish this from every other blog post I ever do? So I decided I would just let the Tumblr side of my internet brain do this post. I promise I’ll respect all of these hotties in the morning.

One thing I think we all need to know upfront is that if I have a celebrity crush, they end up in a book. Like, you know, how this dude here:

tony head and a little dog

is totally Neil Elwood. So much so that when he grew a beard for Warehouse 13 and that second Percy Jackson movie, Neil also decided it would be a fine time to have a beard. But Sophie didn’t like it, so it’s gone now. He’ll be beard free for The Ex. (Tentatively scheduled for Spring 2015, but you never know, it could come out sooner.)

I bet what you didn’t know is that outside of my borderline creepy love for Anthony Head, I have time for other celebrity crushes that I am currently shoe-horning into my work. For example, I’ve got a not-yet-ready-to-be-talked-about New Adult project in which this guy just happens to be a really hot choreographer:

gala-mads-mikkelsen-102

Okay, yeah. So he plays a cannibalistic serial killer on Hannibal. But Mads Mikkelsen  was so hot in A Royal Affair, my brain had to use him for something. Other than… you know. Purposes.

See this gorgeous man here?

showbiz-tristan-wilds

Tristan Wilds is currently starring (unbeknownst to him) in my New Adult novel A Choice Fit For A Queen, in the If Ever I Should Leave You anthology (July 2014). Also, he’s starring in my heart. Oh, and also, in my sexy writing imagination, he has a Welsh accent. Grrr.

Who’s that?

Dany and Xaro talk, Dany speaks of her wish to rule the Seven Kingdoms

I bet you think you’re looking at a picture of Daenerys Targaryen. Well, you are. But you’re also looking at the woman I love, damn it! She’s also who I’m imagining as Miranda in The Abysm of Time, the second book in my Wondrous Strange series, which mixes up Shakespeare in a paranormal meta-verse (release date TBA). I know it’s totally creepy and uncool to objectify women and stuff, but I want to touch her boobs. Also, I want her to treat me with the reserved, elegant disdain of the Mother of Dragons while I kneel at her feet. Like you do.

Okay, and as long as we’re on the topic of the ladies in Thrones who I lust over, remember that not-yet-ready-to-be-talked-about New Adult project?

Natalie_Dormer_0020

I realize that in real life, Natalie Dormer is only two years younger than I am. But in my book writing imagination, she’s going to be twenty. And in my secret tingly imagination, she’s going to be my Domme. But those are stories for another time, dear children.

As for this gentleman, he’s pulling double duty in two separate projects. This younger looking version of him:

Tom-Hiddleston-Loki-25

is the smoking hot college boy love interest of my New Adult novella Playing Him (release date TBA).

And this older, naughtier version of Mr. Hiddleston will eventually be the hero of the erotic romance series that will begin after the Boss series concludes:

tumblr_static_sassy_tom

Yeah, I’m not exactly sure when that series is going to start. Probably in 2015. But it will be a doozy. Like, I can’t divulge details yet, but expect it to make your panties steam. Even if you’re a dude and you don’t wear panties. You’ll buy a pair, and an iron to steam them. It’s gonna be that good.

So, yeah. Basically all of my celebrity crushes are on hot lads and lasses I’ve modeled characters after. Maybe that means I take my work too seriously. Maybe it means my sexuality is all tied up in my creativity (and I would get sexually creative with every damn person on this list). Maybe it means I’m Tina Belcher.

I guess there are worse people to be.

Check out the crushes of my other Wednesday Blogging friends!

    Hnnnnggg. Someone on imgur shared some Frostiron fic the other day and I didn’t even know I had that fetish but I DO. I’ve been reading it like it’s my job (literally, on my phone, at work) and I’m now fully invested in the idea of Hiddles and RDJ doing the do. It’s becoming kind of a really sad obsession that I can’t seem to shake. I’m about 3 seconds from 30 and I feel like I did when I was 12 and was absolutely convinced that I would die if I didn’t marry JTT. My poor husband.

        Oh god, so many and I’m at work so I don’t have links (at least on my computer) but all of them are from ao3. For actual plot, I really really liked one called will o the wisp by GhostoftheMotif, but it’s unfinished so far and the slow build tag reaaally applies. Like_a_Hurricane’s Tricks of the Trade series is finished and also has a pretty fucking brilliant story (along with the requisite bonetown).

        If you want the (much) less story/more smut ones, I read Hannahrhen’s entire Good, Giving, Game series yesterday. All 64k words on my damn phone. I was annoyed when I had to commute because it took me away from reading for 45 minutes. There’s also one called Revealed in Discovery by ragcat if you’re cool with mpreg – not my thing really, but the rest of it’s pretty good, though I also wanted to slap pregnant Loki because he gets a little overemotional for my taste, but I’ve also never been pregnant so what do I know?

    I love this post! Character casting is an excellent reason to perv on all the hotties out there. And I’d like to believe we’re all Tina Belcher, at least a little bit.

    Took me a while to get past The Ex comment. All I can see is Sophie and Neil breaking up. Now I’m sad and not turned on… even imagining Dyneras being my sub can’t erase the pain. …

      I guess it’s only a scary title if you don’t consider the fact that The Bride wasn’t Sophie… *wink wink*

  5. Hiddleston can handle the double duty – even if it involves your writing brain. Sure, he’ll be a little worn out when you’re finished with him, but I’ll take good care of him. Promise.

    Also, can I just say, I’m super happy that you settled on Natalie Dormer. This pleases me greatly.

    Also, I have no idea who Tristan Wilds is, but he’s lovely.

    I think I am going to print out the pictures, buy the books, write the character names under said pictures and sigh dreamily a lot as I read. In the meantime I think I might need to seek out some appropriate Danaerys and/or Margaery fanfiction. *fans self*

  7. Well, our guy taste is completely opposite aside from ASH and Tristan, but we share similar tastes in women. Natalie Dormer and Emilia Clarke, hnnngh.

    I got inspired by this post and did one at my own blog: http://theunicorner.wordpress.com/2014/04/16/wednesday-blog-celebrity-crushes/

    Like you, I often find that my celeb crushes insinuate themselves into writing projects. I wasn’t very specific in my post, but quite a few of the people I listed are my own personal fancasts for characters, or just inspiration for them. Being half Asian myself, I find that all of my projects thus far have a person of color as the lead or as the main love interest, or both. I’m very excited for your NA idea featuring Tristan (sort of, lol) since it’s so rare to see a MoC as the romantic lead (which I assume he is?). Also, Tristan with a Welsh accent = unf.

      It’s a bit of a spoiler if I tell you whether or not he’s the romantic lead, but I can confirm his character is a very nice, sweet, romantic dude who melts my heart.

      Also, I tried to leave a comment on your post, but wordpress wouldn’t let me sign in and I gave up in frustration. I think we had a lady crush in common, and that’s what it was about.

    And was that Peter Capaldi I saw in The Bride? The older Scottish guy who swears like it’s an art form and wants to have a foursome with Neil and Sophie? Who is his wife modeled on, by the way?

      Actually, I can see where the description of Ian would fit Peter Capaldi. I had actually been imagining Craig Ferguson, but yeah, works well for both! Gena is Christina Hendricks.

    You always make my clothes steam. It’s getting to where I need to sit in a tub full of ice just to read your writing.

    Not that i’m complaining, mind you. 😀

      I misread that as “tub full of juice,” and I was like, “Why? What kind?”

    Oh good, other people shamelessly drool over actors and then base characters on them, too. I feel much better now.

  11. Hannibal Lecter has always been sex in legs, spesh when played by Anthony Hopkins in Hannibal.

    Scared that my list of weird crushes will get me extra attention from the NSA: Young Stalin, Young Lenin and Che Guevara were all distastefully gorgeous, as was the somewhat less concerning Young Alistair Darling.

    Also, Marcus Tullius Cicero, cos apparently I have a thing for witty and corrupt 2000 yr old Italian lawyers.

      I recently said in a conversation with my husband, “I just identify with Hannibal Lecter so much,” and he goes, “You realize there’s no coming back from that statement.”

      • Hmm, refined, educated, strong set of principles, direct approach to problem solving…Can’t see a fault with liking Hannibal.

    I’m so glad Christina Hendricks is Gena. That is exactly how I pictured her! Who do you picture as Sophie?

      She flips back and forth between Naya Rivera and Amber Heard. 😀
