What are your favorite prime lenses for a Canon EOS body?

My kit currently includes a 50mm 1.4 (my precioussss), a 100-400mm IS for wildlife photography, and a 28-135 IS (which I like, but don't love.) I've become a total convert to the prime lenses, and I'd like to make a plan of what lenses to buy (eventually). My primary interests are wildlife photography (so a 500mm prime is of course, on the list, though 6k I do not have), portrait photography to a lesser extent. I'd also eventually love a macro lens for close-shooting, and a big honking wide-angle for wide-angle stuff.
Since I learned about my beloved 50mm 1.4 here and I'm just as gaga for it as so many of you seem to be, what are other prime lenses that flip your lid? What's on your dream list? If you own it, where did you buy it from? If you've got a non-prime lens that has been the best thing ever, sure, let me know about that, too.
Asking here because I've found great info on AskMe in the past for camera stuff; photography forums and websites tend to make my eyes glaze over after a bit. Thanks!
