Reyes Lord has a point. How many would still like Strongbow if he wasn't devastatingly handsome? If he was just an ordinary-looking elf (meaning good-looking in a general sort of way, but not necessarily making the jaw go slack
Oh I'd still adore him...his sexyness is much more than skin-deep. Besides, in movies, I am always attracted to the men with battle-scars. In Braveheart, my favorite character is actually the guy who had to watch his new bride go off with the stupid English lord. *sniffles* I cried when he got killed.
One-eye, I was always attracted to him, too. Battle scars just make them more hunky, I think.
But with Strongbow, its not just his looks, its his soul. It's just pure and unflinching. I didn't have a lot of men like that in my life before I met my husband. The men in my family are fairly weak...they die young...and die unhappy. So, I think he could look like Picknose and I might still adore him.
