I think I might go for Hagrid. . . .

Definately, definately Howl.  Always had a thing for him. . . .  And I
rather liked Nick, too, or at least I think I would if he was a bit older.
Chrestomanci, maybe.  Or Mordecai from LoCC; I always liked the way he
treated Christopher.  And I will agree with someone else who replied to
this:  Jean-Luc Picard.  I have had a crush on Patrick Stewart forever, and
I'm notoriously fickle.
