  1. I got John, and yep it tracks! I am literalmy checking Autostraddle while taking a break from reading a friend’s fantasy novel draft and giving feedback on it! (Not professionally, but still).

  2. I’m Riley!! I am surprised by this, I thought I was a total Abby.

    On another note, on the footwear question….those black boots at the top of the list…..does anyone know where I can buy those or ones like them??

  3. 0% surprised I got Riley because she’s an Aubrey Plaza character and like Aubrey and a majority of her characters I look mean but am in fact fun.
    Not that one can’t be mean in a fun way.

  4. I got Abby, which makes sense, because some of those relationship dynamics were very triggering for me! Nothing like watching your girlfriend flirt with someone else in front of her parents.

    (anyway great quiz, great boot options, I have said too much)

  5. I was worried I might get Sloan (Alison Brie’s character) because of my untapped desire to build customs gift experiences.

    Thankfully I am Abby, a selfless orphan, willing to endure it all for a tall girl. Can someone please teach my gf to take a sexy selfie?

  6. Lol this dragged me. I would definitely say that I used to be an Abby because I was always in relationships with mean people and would constantly try to convince myself that their toxic behavior was normal. I want to say I’m more of Aubrey Plaza’s character now.

  7. “You’re Abby, Harper’s orphan roommate!”

    Absolutely. Faithfully hanging off of that roof, Baby ! Plus I’m such a rad dresser (in my dreams LOL).

    (As a side note because I don’t know where to put this exactly, did anyone else notice that in the “our first gay pride” picture during the end credits, Riley is very cozy with… Clea DuVall ? Like, Clea is Riley’s gf ? Far out ! )

  8. As i was taking this quiz my heart was racing thiking my life might be headed downhill and i might be considered the dad or something. luckily i got Abby!! I knew taking this quiz would help me out a little, PHEW :D
