The No-Nonsense Best Friend (ala Natasha Lyonne in Orange is the New Black)
You may not like it but she is blunt but follows it up with a warm hug. She's independent, down to earth, bookish, real, cute, and quick-witted. She's the:
-The new Reporter trying to prove herself,
-Your observant daily Barista
-Your new Lesbian friend who is the most real and grounded person you've ever met
She may know you better than you know yourself!
