First on this list of snarky, bantery guys is Prince Dorian. He's the perfect mix of playful and serious, and he cares so much about his kingdom--even if it means going against his father. Plus, smirk!
I'll second Liv when I say--it's just not fair. Henry is a poetry-quoting, guitar-playing, sarcastic, sweet, smirking wonder. He's one of the few book guys who's not jealous or overbearing. He and Liv are equals. Did I mention poetry-quoting?
Marry me, now. Daniel is a little rough around the edges. He's a bit self-righteous, to be sure. But underneath there's a lot of sweetness. Also sarcasm. He's a bit of an idiot when it comes to Eleanor, but I'm pulling for them.
This list isn't really in order, because Finch would be tied for one. He's good-hearted to the core, spontaneous, quirky, whimsical. He sees the good in people and brings light into every room. He just needs to overcome his own darkness.
I'm sure you're shocked. Yes, like every other girl, I love Darcy. While he starts out a bit obnoxious, he grows significantly by the end. He's smart and kind. He challenges Lizzie and doesn't try to silence her. Also, the British thing. Let's be real.
In case I didn't have enough snarky charmers, I must add Howl. His flippancy and vanity hides a very loyal, kind heart. He's quick with the banter. He also loves Sophie for her heart and mind, even when her face looks eighty years old.
Oh, Gus! I adore his metaphors and his whimsy. He sees the good in the worst situations, and sucks everyone around him into his sunny orbit. He's loyal to a fault, selfless, and so very supportive. He's just a nice guy, and we need more of them.
|eight||Numair Salmalin. |
We're going to ignore the age thing. Numair is dashingly debonair. He'll put himself in any danger for the people he loves, and he loves deeply and fully. He's absolutely brilliant, which is a plus, and he doesn't baby Daine.
Dare I say, charming? He is, quite. Char replaces the dull Disney Charmings with grace and style. He's clever and shrewd, and he sees Ella as a talented equal. There's a shyness, too, that's just adorable. And above all, he's concerned for what Ella wants. Not just his own desires.
Snarky vigilante thief ninja. I'm not even sure that I need to say more. Black Knife (and his secret identity, cough) are sweetly sarcastic, shrewd, selfless, tireless. He's high fantasy's Batman, with some of the most swoonworthy banter in young adult fiction.
