I know this topic has been done before, but not for some time. So what literary character makes your heart go pitter-pat?
Mr. Darcy is a popular choice, but I reread Northanger Abbey last autumn and now Henry Tilney is my fictional Austen man of choice. I’m also fond of Crowley from Good Omens and Alexander the Great as portrayed by Mary Renault in Fire From Heaven and The Persian Boy. And I might as well throw Hephaistion in there while I’m at it.
