This isn't a list of actors who I want to shtup or characters who have the best one-liners. This is a list of characters who I feel have wronged the universe by being fictional. Should they come to life tomorrow and ask for my hand in marriage, I would say yes immediately.
  1. Poussey Washington (Orange is the New Black)
    3d69245e 4158 4e8d b2ad 5bb990ff47dd
    Poussey is the best person in Litchfield and also the best person in America. She's completely adorable. She's sweet, she's kind, she's smart, she's funny. Everything about her is perfect, including her outfits and hair in her flashback episode. I'm so sorry that she has a crush on her straight best friend. She should marry me instead.
  2. Ben Wyatt (Parks and Recreation)
    559f38e8 1562 4810 b089 1cbdbd7f5c47
    Ben Wyatt is the world's most lovable nerd, who would remind you that nerd culture is in right now, so when you use the word "nerd" derogatorily, it means that you're the one that's out of the zeitgeist. He's smart, has an amazing butt, and is the architect of super complicated game the Cones of Dunshire. He supports his wife's career so much that he insists that she runs for governor instead of him, even though both have an equal shot at winning. We all need a husband like Ben Wyatt.
  3. Syd Feldman (Transparent)
    34f7d2a8 019c 4880 b96a 06cf610d49de
    Syd is just the cutest. She's fun and always comes up with a clever comment like "you're a vaginal learner". She has a squad of the hottest queer women, yet is devoted to her BFF since childhood. We don't know enough about Syd, but I still know she's perfect! She's someone who has been stuck around the oft-terrible Pfeffermans her whole life, but she really deserves better. She should probably date Poussey.
