Apocalypstick's ApocaLISTBest Fictional Gal PalsAlmie Rose

Look, I love my friends, but there are some best gal pals out there that make you think, “Damn, I wish we were BFFs.” Then you realize that they’re not real and your heart drops. Well, pick that heart back up and shove it in your mouth because here’s a list of best fictional gal pals that you can hang out with any time as long as you have no sense of reality. Look, a giant ant in a top hat!

10. Hermione Granger, Harry Potterseries. Hey have you guys heard about this book series called Harry Potter?

"Siriusly, you guys?"

9. Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars. Everyone told me, “Hey, watch this show called Veronica Mars” and I said, “Hey, I’m eating a sandwich.” Turns out every time someone asked me to check it out, I was busy eating a sandwich! Then it went off the air. Veronica Mars is one of the coolest smartest girls on a cancelled television series ever! Put down that sandwich and watch this show.

"Sorry I cannot hear you I'm kinda busy."

8. Marion Ravenwood, Raiders of the Lost Ark.Clearly she would be an awesome drinking buddy. She’s fearless and is good at both running and hiding. She’s just really cool and has great taste in shirts. She’s the college roommate you wish you had.

She's Indiana Jonesin for some FUN!

7. Sookie Stackhouse, True Blood. How many times has this girl almost died for her friends? Seven? Twenty-six? Every episode since season one? And they don’t give her so much as a howdy-do; they just do something stupid all over again and wait for her to fix it. She’s a part-time waitress, you guys. Do you think she can afford to take off work to save you from the vampire uprising? Yet she always does.

"Oh my God I just realized I have an Oscar."

6. Dt. Olivia Benson, Law & Order: SVU. Loyalty is a big deal to Olivia Benson. Her partner Stabler would do stupid stuff like harass suspects and dive into traffic waving a gun and shouting like Sean Penn on his days off and Benson would still protect him and cover for him and tell the chief that he was in the right. Then she would go home and have a glass of wine and do it all over again. She’s a lover and a fighter and she wears eyeliner like no one’s business.

"Damn this google plus."

5.  Janis Ian, Mean Girls. If you’re her friend, you’ve got a friend for life; if you cross her, oh guuuurrrrl. For the love of God, go to her art show!
janis ian, mean girls, lizzy caplan

Glen Coco joke.

4.  Dionne Davenport, Clueless. So, I love Cher, but props need to be given to Dee. She was so devoted to Cher and was always there to help her makeover the new girl or go shopping or wear matching outfits. She won’t let you give her any guff but she’ll support you. Don’t make fun of her hats.
dionne, dee, stacey dash, stacy dash

"Paul Rudd winds up with the best career??"

3. All of the golden girls, The Golden Girls. Thank you for being a friend? No, thank you.
golden girls, betty white, bea arthur, blanche

Oh those girls! Always being golden and stuff.

2. Samantha Parkington, The American Girls. So she’s a doll, so what? Her wardrobe is better than yours, her uncle is cooler than yours (I mean not mine, mine talks to dead people and lives in Silverlake), her furniture is cuter than yours and her bangs are more even. Look at her dress, it’s got a drop waist. A drop waist. Yes, she’s also a character in a book but I didn’t read it. I read one Felicity book and I thought, Oh, I get it now, they’re historical. And it was enough.

"Sometimes I make it hard for you to sleep at night."

1. Claudia Kishi, The Baby-sitters Club. Let’s be real, Claudia was the best. Her style was on par with Clarissa Darling’s and she was always the first to volunteer for Kristy’s lackluster ideas that always seemed to involve fundraising. How much money did their club need, really? Baffling. Everything about Claudia is endearing, from her mother who just can’t love her enough, to her adorable misspelling of nearly every word that exists. Ironically, I originally misspelled “misspelling.” Love you, Claud.

"What's a fire and why does it...what's the word...BURN?"

In conclusion, I think it’s clear I need to read more.

  1. Can I get a hey for the girls from Bridesmaids? Or any woman who has been on SNL?

  2. Mac was a better friend than Veronica- Veronica always be tied up with drama/man troubles. Mac was always there when needed AND could do practically anything with a computer you’d ever need (legal or otherwise).

  3. I love this list! Summer Roberts, Rachel Bilson’s character in The O.C., totally would have included her. Though she could get bitchy at times, she always stood by Marissa’s side! I would have wanted Summer as my bff. Plus her character developed so nicely. Save the otters!

  4. I think it would be fun to have Lucy and Ethel from “I Love Lucy” as friends. I don’t think there would ever be a dull moment!

  5. Oh my gosh! THANK YOU for putting Samantha on the list! She is my absolute favorite! I still have my Samantha doll and, although girl needs a new weave, she will always be my favorite.

  6. ah! i always enjoy your posts. I agree with all these girls.

  7. i loved claudia!! (and clarissa darling was my style icon as a child. i wore lace bottomed leggings and jeans shorts with baggy shirts to church when i was 8 because of her…)

  8. side note, there were babysitter club DOLLS?!?! STFU!

  9. I was more of a Kristy who wanted to be a Claudia. In fact, I used to torture my poor Iranian parents about changing my name to Claudia. And I think one of the main reasons I lived in New York City for three years was b/c of Stacey McGill— who would so totally be played by Blake Lively in a 2011 Baby Sitter’s Club movie where due to the bad economy, the girls, now in their 20s have to resurrect the club to make money.

  10. Ahh! I used to love Claudia!! Hey, what about the Sweet Valley High Girls?

  11. Hermione’s my number one! Glad she’s on this list. We’d have a blast drinking butter beers, discussing Hogwarts: A History, and using spells to embarrass Ron.

  12. I got a Samantha doll when I was five and I still have her. I’ve read all her books and there was not a sleepover I went on where she didn’t come with me. She really was my best friend for a good chunk of my life.

  13. My favourite thing about Claudia was the junk food hidden all over her room!!
    Another favourite fictional gal is Georgia Nicholson from Louise Rennison’s books :) she never fails to make me laugh

  14. I would have also inserted Liz Lemon in here somewhere. Sure, she’s a little neurotic and self-centered, but if she can put up with Jenna and Tracy she’s a goddamn saint in the friend department.

  15. My gal pal would be Emma Pillsbury from Glee, if anyone knows who I’m talking about. XD

  16. LOVE this! especially since I had both Samantha and Claudia dolls… apparently I already thought they were my BFFs…

    • I HAD EVERY BABY-SITTERS CLUB DOLL! They were cheaper than The American Girls. By the time I got Samantha I was on the cusp of being too old for it.

  17. SPOT ON GIRL! Love u.

  18. I was more of a Kirsten Larsen American Girl myself (she had a Conestoga Wagon for fluff’s sake), but I wholeheartedly agree with your selections! Claudia Kishi was always the Babysitter I pretended I was, but everyone knows I’m a Mary-Ann.

    • Kristen was for cool girls, Felicity for nerds, and Samantha was somewhere in between but mostly for girls who wanted to be rich.

  19. I want to hug you for including Samantha Parkington and Claudia Kishi (and I don’t hug anyone!).

  20. I totally want them as my BFFs! I’m gonna add one of my own and say Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Buffy would be nothing without the Scooby Gang and Willow’s brains! :)
