Ehh?

Looking at the current poll, I cannot believe that not a single person wants to have sex with Temmin! I mean, I personally wouldn't, being hetero and all, but I would have thought he'd have a medium following at the least.

He's living proof that confidence and experience really do carry a lot of weight. He's not at 0 any more, but he'll never be a frontrunner.

I think we're all afraid to admit we'd want Temmin. Smile Hell, given the chance I'd go for it. I'd also go for the Obby's, if I thought I had a chance in hell. As it is? I know I wouldn't, except in their current roles. Take them out of it and no. Thus? I chose someone else. Someone I'd adore getting the chance to cuddle up to and just...be.

I don't think I would have considered that view otherwise. So even when the poll asks what you want, you're still put off by his status? Very interesting. Smile

(Sorry it took me so long to respond - I forgot I commented! I'm not used to it yet.)

For me, reading a "fantasy" novel isn't really suspending belief but more about reading the way things are in a different world. Should the worlds combine, my reality would take over for me - even if I was in their world. Comfort levels and all that jazz. If he were to approach me, I would probably still fall into the "out of my range" attitude.

Then again...I have a very forceful personality, or so I've been told. If you put me in a place with a lot of people, mom says I put off a "I'd rather hit you than talk to you" vibe. I'm forceful, but I'm shy. If you can get me talking, I won't quit...but it's getting me started that's the problem.

I like really dommy guys, so puppy-boy Tem is not really appealing in the slightest. I mean, he's cute and all, but... ugh. No attraction.

I mean, he's adorable, and I'd like to ruffle his hair and poke him in the stomach (and otherwise offend his royal personage), but he's not my first choice to go to bed with ...

Ah, but for me, ruffling the hair and poking the tummy usually turns into tickle-wrestling and then real wrestling and then the NC-17 curtain comes down.... Wink

I don't consider myself a Dom 'cos I'm so very vanilla in practice and I do like being occasionally seduced, but do I prefer being in charge? Hoo boy, you betcha. A sexy, adorable, hale and malleable young man sounds like a lot of fun to play with. So much fun to make 'em squirm...

*ahem*

So yeah, I'll wait for Tem Wink

I also have a weakness for the confused-but-wants-to-do-right young protagonist at the center of the plot maelstorm kind of fantasy story, so Temmin in the History hits other buttons, too.

But to be frank, he's pretty far down on the list of people from the story I'd have sex with. Don't get me wrong, he's on it, but behind both his sisters and his dad, not to mention those sexy Embodiments...

In a couple years, or maybe even months of intense time at the Temple, I'd totally be interested in sex with Temmin. As it is, I've been with experienced and unexperienced and, well, there is something to "how you use it."
I considered Anda, 'cause I am very drawn to her character. But, I am drawn to her because I identify with her, and sex with someone so like me would be a little weird. So, having a man of my own at home, I went with an experience woman and chose Allis.

He is exactly the type I'd have been attracted to a few years ago, but he would have probably broken my heart. Somehow, he would have.

I'll admit it. I picked the woman who posed the most challenge. I want the man who will be the most mine.

He's got to grow up.

And quit eating. He must look like a pig, all puffy cheeks and fat rolling around his gut. . .

And don't pull that "growing boy" crap on me. I was 16, ate like a pig, and ended up grossly obese for life.

Hour-long horse ride at 5, sparring with Fen and Imbert for two hours seven days a week. He can eat like a horse and not look like a pig.

My dear wonderful husband could eat, and eat, and eat, and eat...and never gain anything. Docs put him on a "diet" to gain weight and he still couldn't do it. When I met him, he was all of 125 pounds soaking wet...at the age of 24. It wasn't until he got a desk job where he was less active that he finally started to gain weight. He also doesn't eat as much as he used to (which he blames on me, because we usually eat together and I never remember to eat).

Then you have me. I was a skinny kid - when I graduated high school I was 116 pounds. Turned 18, and my metabolism just...stopped. Dead in it's tracks, I swear it. Twelve years later, I"m up about 100 pounds...and I don't eat much (as I mentioned above).

So it's all about metabolism - some people have it, some people don't. Some have a more active one due to their current lifestyle, which slows down when they do...and others have a slow one that picks up as their activity level picks up. Yet others just go through a change and that's all their is to it. It's why diets don't work for everyone, exercise and the right food don't work for everyone - why some people eat right and exercise and are still heavy, while others eat "like a pig" and are thin as a rail.

Besides...it's Mei's story. She can make the characters do any damn thing she wants, for any reason.

The guy I am currently dating basically is Temmin. We were introduced to each other about a week or so after we turned 17 (our birthdays are on consecutive days). We were both extremely naive and had not seriously dated anyone else before. We became best friends then fell incredibly in love with each other. Like Temmin, my bf was quite tentative at first, very eager to please, but also extremely passionate. Because of our strong religious backgrounds, we did not start having sex until about 3 and a half years into our relationship. We fooled around quite a bit during that time, learning how to push each other's buttons and so forth, but no sex until recently. My situation now's kinda like being in bed with Temmin, but instead of me being skilled and experienced like Allis, we're both still learning. It's amusing, fun, romantic, and enjoyable, but not something I would want to have to go through twice. I picked Brinnid because I find him extremely intriguing (he's also incredibly handsome to me). He's a touch older than I am and for various reasons, I have always preferred older men. They tend to be more mature, more experienced, more knowledgeable about life, and they treat women with more respect than younger guys do. I love Brinnid's character and repeatedly fall in love with men like him in the romance novels I read - I just can't help myself Wink Anywho, in response to the quandary, I picked Brinnid because I am currently dating a Temmin and while I love my guy to death, if I had to start all over again, I would pick a Brinnid.

I could be with a guy that's so clueless. I also interpreted this to mean Temmin, as he is in the part of the story we're hearing about now. I think that King Temmin, in 10 years, would top my list without a doubt. I just want a man with a little bit more experience. Otherwise, I spend too much time teaching (which is fun, but if I were to just have a one-time bout of incredible sex, not what I would be after). I picked Brinnid for that reason. Brinnid is strong, but he's also smart enough to be slippery, in a good way. Smile Allis is a close second, though. She's the kind of girl I fantasize about. Ellika is too empty headed, and Sedra has too many issues. Allis has really figured herself out. Sedra is more of a child in a lot of ways, I think, even if she is smart and awesome and beautiful and mature. I think we see her as mature largely because she's smart and because we compare her to Temmin and Ellika.
