Now that I’ve become familiar with more of the characters that Dan Stevens has portrayed, I can finally use them to answer this ‘Fandom Asks’ questionnaire! Maybe I’ll make it a series and apply it to other crushes as well. We’ll start with Dan though, because he’s so much fun.
The first character I first fell in love with: David Haller, Legion
He’s so sweet and clueless and broken, and he has no idea how very powerful he truly is. Once he starts to discover his powers though, he levitates, and moves things without touching them, and can take you outside of your body into the Astral Plain where he’s set up a nice little love nest for the two of you… I mean, Syd. the love nest that he set up for Syd.
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: David Collins, The Guest
He’s a psychopath, but so damn polite about it! It’s not his fault though, the big bad government used him for an experiment and made him a super soldier without empathy, so that makes it okay to love him. As long as he thinks it’s his ‘mission’ to make you happy; don’t disrupt the mission.
The character everyone else loves that I don’t: The Beast, Beauty and The Beast
I like him well enough, but c’mon! They hid that beautiful face under CGI fur for almost the whole movie! His grumpiness has a certain charm to it, I’ll admit. I like him much better after the transformation though.
The character I love that everyone else hates: Noah Dorfman, Criminal Activities
I don’t know that others hate him, necessarily, it’s just that he’s not exactly a heartthrob. He tries too hard to fit in, willingly letting his ‘friends’ take advantage of him, and he’s kind of bouncy like a puppy. He has an enjoyable dry wit that comes out in full force when he’s stressed though, and his curly hair is adorable!
The character I used to love but don’t any longer: Will Porter, Killswitch
I really liked him in the build up to the release of the movie but then once I saw the movie, he felt flat, very one dimensional. And not actually on screen all that much. The movie, while inventive, was full of dead ends.
The character I would totally smooch: Joey Van Helsing, Vamps
The floppy hair and the boyish smile, and the fact that he doesn’t run away screaming when he finds out that you’re a vampire. Not only that, but he still wants to make out with you, even though his dad is a vampire hunter. He’s a keeper!
The character I’d want to be like: David Cameron, Hilde
Confident, Charismatic, Cocky
The character I’d slap: James Harvey, The Ticket
I go from wanting to cuddle him in his disheveled clothes, to wanting to slap him in his designer suits. Maybe we should eliminate the clothing factor altogether and see what I feel then?
A pairing that I love: All of them and their Beautiful Blue Eyes
Fav fanvid: Dangerous- David Collins, The Guest
Warning: gun violence, brief female nudity, swear words, but excellent editing!
ETA: unfortunately this video was removed. so I’ll change the answer to this question to ‘There’s An Infestation in My Mind’s Imagination- David Haller, Legion’. the subject matter may be tamer but the song and editing is on point!
