I almost forgot one of my most important adolescent (early teen) crushes from literature/movies-
The Sheriff of Nottingham. Oh yeah.
Recently (last semester) I read a book which was supposed to be inspired by actual documents about the “real” sheriff of nottingham. It makes him seem like a slightly less iconic bad guy. He’s actually 90% a good man in this book, until he goes and hangs 9 welsh boys (being held ransom by the crown) from the castle walls. Then I want him to die, die, die.
