Childhood Crush Meme  
I see, so this is how Memes start :D First writcraft did it, then I saw vaysh do it, now I'm jumping on the bandwagon ;)

Here are my childhood crushes in no particular order :D

1) David Bowie in Labyrinth. I had such a crush on him, damn!

My crush was as big as the bulge in his pants xD

But then my mother showed me a picture of him without his costume and I was devastated .__.

2) Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy.
I'm not kidding, I had a crush on him before I even knew what Drarry was. When the 2nd movie came out (I was 11 or something) I was already fangirling quite hard.

3) Tom Hern as Ram.
The Tribe was an TV series from New Zealand (aimed at teenagers) that they, for whatever reason, showed here on German TV (dubbed and all). It was really cool, I miss it a lot.
It was about a virus that killed all adults and now all the young people had to survive on their own. They form tribes and slowly try to rebuild society, bring back a currency etc. My mum and I enjoyed the series a lot, especially because it dealt with a lot of mature topics (like bulemia, sex, pregnancy, death etc.)
Ironically, it was cancelled after season 5 because it was too serious/mature for the audience it was aimed at (HELLO excuse me, I was watching it literally because of that)
Ram was the leader of the "Technos", they came and brought electricity and internet back but they were also kind of arrogant and wanted to control the city so yeah, I always had a thing for bad boys I guess.

3.1.) Caleb Ross as Lex (also from The Tribe). He was anasshole/womanizer, so I've got a pretty bad track record in regard to crushes, looking back on it now XD

4/5/6) There was this Italian movie series called "Princess Fantaghirò" (1991) that I loved. I recommend this movie series to anyone who loves a good romance combined with fantasy (with a badass woman as a protagonist, I might add). But don't watch the last two movies (Part 9 and 10 I believe) since those two movies destroy the wonderful love story of the main couple (only because they couldn't get all the actors from the last parts) You'll not miss anything if you don't watch the last two, they're basically useless.

Anyway, I could never decide whether I preferred Romualdo (Kim Rossi Stuart, the top guy) or Tarabas (Nicholas Rogers, the bottom guy). Who do you like more?

On that note, let's add Alessandra Martinez, who played Fantaghirò in the above mentioned movie. I was just so enarmored with her. She was this badass princess who didn't want to be a princess but rather a warrior, so she decided to run away when nearly forced to marry a random prince. She cuts her hair and poses as a man, specifically a knight. She ends up being challenged to a duel with a prince called Romualdo (see above), her future love interest...it's all so lovely and wonderful and *sigh*

Here a trailer for those interested:

7) And lastly (there were probably more but I can't remember) Atreju from A Never Ending Story. THAT ARTAX SCENE THOUGH T_T

That's it! Sorry, long post is long :/

That scene...oh my god...even having you mention it, I feel like sobbing as my heart shatters again. That movie was so intense and amazing.

I was so devastated as a kid...but also so happy at the end when we see Atreju riding Artax again :D

Best movie ever, but don't watch it again or you will forever be disappointed.

Tom Hern was also in that skater movie on Disney. Loved that movie.

And wow, David Bowie is packin'.

Seriously, I always want to re-watch the movies but I force myself to not do it because I just know it will shatter my memory of it :D I remember I was really scared of the wolf Gmork as a kid but now I'll probably laugh, so yeah :D

David Bowie's package mesmerized me even as a child, although I didn't know why back then XD
