All right so for the CMC app, would I be putting myself at a disadvantage/****ing off the college admissions officer reading my app if I wrote about some random fictional character?
I'm not talking about a person from one of the classics or even really good, adult, well-known fiction; I'm talking about a character from a teen fantasy/romance series that I want to write about. It's not a trashy beach read, but it's just, well, not very sophisticated. However, the protagonist is the perfect leader to give advice to.
Do you think I'd be OK with this? If so, should I give the reader some context of the storyline, so they better understand the advice I'm giving?
