Jen Lindley and Jack McPhee
Michelle Williams and Kerr Smith
I liked these characters seperately, but then they were put together in the latter parts of season two, and Jack moved in with Jen and her Grams, in the season two finale. Season three saw them become a solid bromance, the wit that both characters possessed, not disappearing. Their interactions were sweet, and I particularly enjoyed the fact that Jen was the most vocally supportive female when it came to Jack’s struggle with his sexuality.
It was nice to see a purely platonic mixed sex pairing for the first time in the show, as before that, if a male character was friends with a female, there was always some overtones of sexual attraction, on one side or the other. The fact that Jack was gay obviously negated that, as Jen was straight.
I enjoyed the friendship between them more than the friendship between Will and Grace, the other straight woman/ gay man friendship that I was aware of, finding them easier to relate to, as they were obviously meant to be teenagers.

I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
