Today's Fictional Husband is the geek king of the YA world in my opinion
Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
Simon isn't your normal hero/leading man type and it's quite clear that Jace in the series is the 'main man' because he is classically good looking and cool etc etc but it is Simon that steals my heart every time. He's funny and cool without even realising it. He interests are with movies, comics and music which is basically what I love too and he is a devoted friend. Even when faced with impossible dangers and foes he would defend those he loves. He has little or no super cool powers like the Shadowhunters in City of Bones when we first meet him; he's just an average guy compared to Jace or Alec and yet he is impossibly adorable because he doesn't let that stop him.
I don't want to get to spoiler with my gushing but let's just say that stuff goes down and Simon comes off as even more of a hero because even when things look bad or desperate he is still himself and quite often is the comic relief in a tense moment and who doesn't love a guy that make them laugh. It's one of the things on every girl's list of dream guy qualities: To make me laugh and quite often to be able to laugh at themselves. Simon is set to feature even more in Cassandra's new book City of Fallen Angels and he's even on the cover. WOO HOO!
Geeks are cool because at the end of the day most of the geeky and socially awkward guys at school and college are the one's that suddenly turn of awesome in later life and generally don't change who they are. A geek guy is someone that will be the hero when you need him and be the shoulder to cry on when you are feeling blue. Most of all they will be that guy that most girls won't take a second look at but perhaps they should because they have all the good boyfriend qualities they are looking for in the bad boys that just don't exists.
Next up is another geek love of mine and a character that I think just doesn't get enough love: Alan in The Demon's Lexicon/The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
