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 {{Take That}}s and, not least, the implication that the "art" version of the loved one will be what people remember.

** When Marge wrote a romance novel called ''The Harpooned Heart'', she wrote in the main character Temperance's husband Captain Mordecai as an abusive, selfish slob like Homer, and her love interest Cyris is an all-around good guy based on Ned Flanders. Note that she originally wrote Mordecai as a caring, suave husband until Homer put on yet another display of lazy [[{{Jerkass}} jerkassery]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Foxtrot}}'':
** Jason often uses his sister in his D&D sessions... as various flavors of hideous monsters.
** Paige retaliated by writing a SelfInsertFic with Jason as a troll, eventually tied up and left to be eaten by boars.
** Jason and Marcus play "Houses and Humans" with a level 16 boy, level 14 girl, and level 10 boy. When Peter makes a disparaging comment, Jason announces his 16-year old sticks his tongue into a socket ("Roll percentile die to determine voltage").
** Roger (in his trope-naming SelfInsert spy fantasy "His Code Name Was The Fox") gave his James Bond-ish character a fling with a redhead, and figured his wife might get jealous, so the Fox gets two blondes in the next chapter.

--> "As for my take on [[ZerothLawOfTropeExamples Shakespeare]], I'm basing a lot of it on what I personally find scary about being a storyteller. When something terrible is happening, 99 percent of you is feeling terrible, but 1 percent is standing off to the side - like a little cartoon devil on our shoulder - and saying, "I can use this. Let's see, I'm so upset that I'm actually crying. Are my eyes just tearing, or are they stinging? Yes, they're stinging, and I can feel the tears rolling down my cheeks. How do they feel? Hot. Good, what else?" That's the kind of disconnectedness I wanted to explore."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' plays this trope for laughs. Nozaki blatantly bases his manga's characters and relationships on the people around him, and often undertakes hilarious situations in the interest of "research," with the characters themselves being none the wiser.
