8. Gabriela Dawson, Chicago Fire
Girl, it’s not the way you risk your life on the regular to keep Shay safe that makes us think you’re gay for her. It’s the way you look at her and touch her and how your chemistry sizzles hotter than any fire Station 51 has ever dealt with.
9. Mariana Adams-Foster, The Fosters
Look, we’ve all been there. In high school, in college, sometimes well into adulthood, we’ve all had a best friend — but like a best friend — who decided she’d rather spend time with a dude than with us and it broke our hearts into a hundred million pieces because WE THOUGHT WE WERE BEST FRIENDS. It happened to Mariana this season on The Fosters and it hurt her more than her birth mom asking her to steal stuff from her adopted moms so she could pawn it for drugs. (Protip: You’re not looking for a best friend; you’re looking for a girlfriend.)
10. Marceline the Vampire Queen, Adventure Time
Just the lyrics to one of the songs Marceline makes up for Princess Bubblegum, on the spot:
Sorry I don’t treat you like a goddess,
Is that what you want me to do?
Sorry I don’t treat you like you’re perfect,
Like all your little loyal subjects do.
Sorry I’m not made of sugar,
Am I not sweet enough for you?
Is that why you always avoid me?
That must be such an inconvenience to you.
I shouldn’t have to be the one that makes up with you,
So… why do I want to?
Why do I want to…
And that was before they went on the road together in Marceline & the Scream Queens.
Which TV character do you think should just come out already?
