Often (for extra irony) a source of TrueArtIsAngsty. May lead the artist (if self-aware) to ShooTheDog, or BreakHisHeartToSaveHim, at least if they [[IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy want them to have a chance of a good life]]. Sometimes, of course, the would-be love object is GenreSavvy enough to spot them coming, put off by the potential for Muse Abuse, or just plain not interested. Or the artist, if unlucky in love, may turn to Muse Abuse of the unresponsive loved one, often with more or less subtle {{TakeThat}}s and, not least, the implication that the "art" version of the loved one will be what people remember.
