The YA Boy

Perhaps I should make a list as well about what make a YA boy gleaned from reading too much about them and just about ruined and elevated the fantasies of readers.

  • Gorgeous! (I'm beginning to hate this word, you'll see why in another post), handsome, aristocratic features and other synonyms
  • Sweet but only showing his soft side to the girl
  • Fairly intelligent
  • Mysterious. There's always, always some deep, dark secret about his family, his past, his true nature, his pet goldfish...
  • Not always human. He can be half-human, a vampire, werewolf, faery, fallen angel, a reaper or a god...
  • ...which brings us to powers
  • Sense of humor. It is not always present but mostly sarcastic or really, really funny.
  • A hint of danger. That bad boy vibe.
  • Hates the heroine at first because she would ruin his carefully crafted facade. He means to be distant but over time can't stay away from her.

Well, that's all I have on hand for today but I will add more things as I think more about what makes up our YA boy.
