1. Hannah Horvath, Girls
Hannah is neurotic, self absorbed, flaky, and probably batshit crazy. She’s so busy looking after herself or looking for “the story” that she completely ignores her friends and boyfriend and yet somehow will always be there to get you through the situation with some tough love. She’s a completely unique character because she’s always real, but not always likeable. I sound like I’m just listing her bad points, but I love her sass, her unharnessed charm, and her complete disregard for any social norms, while still managing to be just as insecure and confused as the rest of us “normal people”. Hannah, be my frenemy?
2. Samantha Jones, Sex and the City
Samantha is sexy, confident, trashy and classy. She is completely pulled together but is not above giving BJs to the FedEx guy in her office. She is a woman in charge who wears what she wants, says what she wants, and fucks who she wants. She doesn’t take no for an answer and is a complete and total maneater (and woman eater, hehe) but her ladies always come first. She makes time for herself and her friends, and never ever lets a man consume her life. She’s completely larger than life in every way possible, she’s important and fucking right she knows it!
3. Dr. Temperance Brennan, Bones
Bones is brilliant. She doesn’t take shit from anyone and will kick your ass any day of the week. She’s a no nonsense tough cookie with an ooey gooey center. She lets herself fall in love with Booth, although she doesn’t make it easy for him. She allows herself to enjoy new experiences, while still staying completely guarded and emotionally stunted, yet completely endearing. She’s full of surprises, like her Wonder Woman costume and her way with kids. She’s completely stable and predictable in all the best ways.
4. Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
Veronica is creative, cunning, witty and charming. She’s a marshmallow. She kicks ass at what she does, has the most insane amount of ambition and always gets the hottest guys. Plus she has seriously great hair. Even when she’s rocking the early 2000s shag with cargo pants and those weird army hats she’s still a babe. She’s got her insecurities and vulnerabilities that make her relatable, while still maintaining her tough as nails persona. She’s seriously, seriously badass in the sweetest way possible.
