Let's help FOUR win the YA Crush Tourney!!!
What they have to say about our FOUR:
Four is from the unbelievable dystopian YA novel, Divergent by Veronica Roth. You can find more information about Divergent by clicking on Veronica Roth's name on the side of our blog or check out our Divergent Top Ten List. Four is rep'd by our very own and talented honorary sister, Marylee! Follow her on twitter @MaryleeTheCrazy!
Four, (yes it is a nickname) is a wonderfully complex character. Although he has faced many dangers & years of abuse, he is still a good-natured person who is not afraid to stand up for what is right. He is an extremely intelligent, honorable, hard-working, brave young man whose immense skill is matched only by his vast capacity to love. He can take Tris' breath away with a simple touch & although at first she is considered the weakest link in their group, he picks her first to be on his team during a competitive activity because he believes in her strength & sees in her what no one, not even Tris, sees. He cares for her so much that even when he didn't have to, he fought through one of his worst fears in order to be with her & protect her. His wisdom & encouragement help Tris through the grueling & intense process she's going through & he keeps her dangerous secret safe from those who would use it as an excuse to hurt her. He is a tough teacher & at times seems cruel, but his only thought is to protect Tris & keep her alive & safe. He is a quiet & remarkably self-possessed young man but at the same time he is also extremely witty & fun. There is also the minor thing where he saves Tris' life on multiple occasions. Come on, he is the whole package ladies.
"To me, there's a difference between not being afraid & acting in spite of fear as he does."
Four is, quite simply, gorgeous. He is over 6 feet tall with taut & defined muscles. His tranquil eyes are a dreaming, sleeping, waiting color that are so dark they're almost black, with a small patch of lighter blue on the left iris, right next to the corner of his eye. They are so deep- set that his eyelashes touch the skin under his eyebrows & even when he glares or scowls, his eyes look thoughtful. His lips, that curl when he smiles & that provide Tris with many pleasurable moments (near the chasm, on the train, in his bed...) are full & perfect & the voice that comes out of them is deep & it rumbles. He has several tattoos, all of which are meaningful to him & which no one besides the artist that drew them & Tris have seen. He has short black hair that is perfect for running your fingers through... and speaking of fingers, he has long & narrow ones that with the heel of his hand touching one side of Tris' rib cage, his fingertips still touch the other side. Other people in the book describe him as handsome, so you know Tris isn't just blinded by love. He's just a straight-up hunk.
"I close my eyes. His touch is light, sensitive. A heavy warm feeling, like spilling honey, fills my body, slowing my thoughts."
instrUctor of awesomeness
Four is one talented son of a gun. He is one of the most-respected people in his faction & his choice not to seek power within it was the only thing keeping him from being a leader. He is strong, athletic, & fast & not only knows how to shoot a gun & to fight, but can do so with incredible skill. He is also something of a computer genius & works in the control room most of the time. As an exceptional fighter and resident man-of-awesome, Four also gets to train & prepare new recruits like Tris. Because of his high intellect & intuition, another talent of Four's is his ability to think on his feet & recover quickly & seamlessly in times of need, especially when he's trying to save Tris.
"He's figured out more about me than I have. And even though it seems impossible that he could feel something for me, given all that I'm not... maybe it isn't."
Four is special in so many ways, but my favorite quality of his is his inner strength. Though I am positive his physical strength could beat the crap out of any guy I know, it is his unswerving goodness that makes him the most crush worthy. Although he had a terrible childhood & then went to live where extreme violence was an everyday occurrence, Four never stopped believing in & fighting for the ideal of what his faction was founded on rather than succumbing to the easy corruption of what it had fallen into. That drive to be better pushes him to constantly face his fears in order to make progress & be better even though he is so good already & is what drove him to take a chance on & fall in love with Tris.
"We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another."
What makes Four better than Hale?
Four & Hale have a lot in common. Both love their ladies and are extremely loyal to & protective of them. Both don't want to share their first names (although Four does eventually). And both are just human, not supernatural creatures, who are both just trying to do the best they can in life. Where they differ is that where Hale has lots of money to go and do whatever he desires, he chooses to be be a criminal & steal things. Whereas Four doesn't have inexhaustible funds & is busy fighting for his & Tris' lives. And even if he did have the money or opportunity to steal artistic masterpieces, he wouldn't, because Four believes in doing what's right, even when it's hard or un-fun. I think that shows that Four has more integrity & is therefore more worthy of your crush!
"A brave man acknowledges the strength of others."
Anything else you would like to add?
Four is the hotttttest crush ever!
vOte for him
U know you love him!
Read this book if you haven't already!
Four, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love you for your wit, cleverness, & charm. I love you for your bravery, (dauntlessness if you will) cunning, & general badassery. But most of all, I love you for your passion, caring, & wisdom. Your strength & love know no bounds & my love for you is forever!
This characterization and description of Four is based only on the first book in the Divergent series. I cannot wait to see how this most crush-worthy young man grows and changes in the upcoming books, but I am certain it will only make me love him even more! Divergent by Veronica Roth is one of the greatest books I've ever read. I'm in love with everything about it & I can hardly wait for Insurgent (Book Two). If you haven't read it yet, go do yourself a favor & read it immediately!!!
"Something about him makes me feel like I am about to fall. Or turn to liquid. Or burst into flames." Come on ladies, any man who can make a woman feel like that is the real deal & clearly the most crush-worthy!
