  1. I’m Devon from I Love Dick! “ dreamy romantic playwright surrounded by a lot of very entitled artists who is really hot and also determined to make their own voice heard!” Love this for me

  2. Gabrielle from Xena? Nice.

    “You’ve got a lot going on to give you an edge over the competition as a writer: first of all, you know how to read and write. Secondly, you have a hot girlfriend who is always doing things worth writing about. Nice work!”

    Pity only the first advantage is true, though.
