This is a new weekly post hosted by me and Incident over at Sordid Fantasy. We will list some of our favorite fictional men along with why we love/lust them. Pictures will also be included.
This week's pick is Tybalt from the October Daye Series by Seanan McGuire. Tybalt is the local King of the Court of Cats of the Cait Sidhe. Toby describes him as having the "sort of sleek, muscled build that only comes from a few specific types of exercise programs." Though Toby was referring to the exercise to keep Tybalt's throne, I definitely came up with a few others. To learn more about this great series, you can see my reviews of Rosemary and Rue and A Local Habitation. So far the only interactions of our heroine, Toby, with Tybalt have been mostly antagonistic and snarky, but who doesn't love a man who is able to dole out the sarcasm.
Some favorite Tybalt quotes:
“I’m a cat. We aren’t required to make sense.” - from ALH
"You were sleeping so peacefully that I was loath to wake you. Duke Torquill, after demanding to know what I was doing in your apartment, has requested that I inform you of his intent to visit after ‘tending to some business at the Queen’s Court.’ I recommend wearing something clinging, as that may distract him from whatever he wishes to lecture you about this time. Hopefully, it’s your manners. You are truly endearing when you sleep. I attribute this to the exotic nature of seeing you in a state of silence."- A note from Tybalt to Toby from ALH
For how I see Tybalt, James McAvoy comes to mind so I included some pics.
So have you read the October Daye Series? What do you think of my pick for Tybalt?
