For those of you who don't have 8 minutes to spare, that's basically a rundown of a poll about sexiest animated men - since the internet is clogged with videos about sexiest animated woman (Jessica Rabbit usually topping the list). Take a look at the list - you may be surprised.
Writing is, of course, different than television - but some of these quotes just ring true. (Obviously, there's some stereotypes and generalization going on here. Bear with me.)
A big subject in the video is brooding. Some women feel attracted (insanely) to men with a past. Hence Goliath from Gargoyles. "But the big cincher? Goliath's voice."
Obviously, we authors can't make the readers hear a certain voice in their ear, but we can add a certain kind of voice to our characters.
"And what do we like more than a big masculine crusader for justice? A project!"
There are a lot of stereotypes here, and I don't think this means 'fixing' a man - which is a horrible idea and you should never do it. I think it's more to do with taking someone in pain and (despite the pain you yourself will receive in the process) give them so much care and patience that they heal and then happen to fall in love with you. Which will rarely happen and so is a horrible idea and you should never do it. *COUGH*
"Evil is sexy, what can I say?"
Yes. Yes it is.
"Not so light and frothy as to be boring, but got a sad enough situation to warrant some coddling. He wants you to trust him... even though he may not quite deserve it."
(In reference to Aladdin - everyone with me now, awwww)
So there you go - for the guys, some clues into the minds of women (again, this is all generalized and probably not true for a LOT of gals). And for you girls... Batman is in that video. Seriously. Watch it.
