Joey's Desktop
Dawson's Creek is one of those shows with characters you can't help but feel for. Joey Potter is one of them. Her on-again, off-again relationship with brooding Dawson Leery keeps fans coming back to the TV show week after week. Snoop around on her computer with this creative site. Built with the similar aspects as the official Dawson's Desktop, this site lets you read Joey's email to Dawson and her friend Pacey. You can also read entries in her journal or snoop into her chat transcripts.
