MW's Tiny Critiques: Strength/Weakness
I asked Toben if this was still a thing recently, and he said yes, so...

Bella Bianchi, please.

Plush Wants To Read Your Dead Things!
Um, Bella Bianchi, please.

Fenris does sprite stuff!
Hey, I just wanna say how nice these are, first of all. ^_^;

Second, I would like one. Since I'm still fiddling with my V6 ladies, I'm instead picking my TV2 girl Nina Riddhi. I've been feeling I haven't been loving her enough.

Description, copypasta'd from her profile:

Quote:
 
Nina has shoulder length curly dark hair, which she usually wears down. Sometimes it looks somewhat disheveled, as if she had just gotten out of bed, particularly after she's been drinking hard the previous evening. Otherwise, however, she tries to keep it looking clean and well-taken care of.

She is Asian-Indian, which shows in her darker skin tone. Her eyes are a dark brown, almost black, and often look exhausted. Nina uses makeup to hide her tired looks, including eyeliner, lipgloss, and foundation. She has a long nose, with thin lips. Nina has somewhat of a square face, with a rounded chin and square cheekbones. Her eyebrows are very prominent, and the same color as her hair. As for her ears, she tends to prefer long earrings, and on the day of the game's start she was wearing small hoops.

Nina is about 5'8, and weighs about 164 pounds, making her somewhat tall and on the higher end of average in weight, and with a somewhat curvy frame, though you can spot a bit of muscle on her arms. She occasionally slouches, making her look slightly shorter than she actually is. Her nails are usually painted black, while her hands occasionally have a few small knicks on them from woodcarving. As for her taste in clothing, she doesn't mind wearing things that show off skin, though she's not particularly showy about it. On the day the game started she was wearing a white tank top with cut-off jean shorts; Nina had fallen off the wagon the previous evening and became absent due to a hangover, causing her to put on what she had first came across when dressing herself for the day. She normally wears black cowboy style boots with plain colored white socks. On her left wrist she wears a simple woven brown bracelet.

The Dragon of Herald Arrives!
So I've been wondering something ever since I saw this thread, and I have to ask: do you think he and Junko would know each other at all?

Kingman's predominantly white (like, 82%), so they're probably among the few Japanese people in town/at school (though other concepts could show up). They're both athletic, though in different ways. While Junko isn't that super-mega-jerkface, she can get pretty arrogant and temperamental.

I think he might know Emma as well, since they both play piano. There's a good possibility she might be involved in school orchestra stuff in some way, so if he's involved with that they might know each other from meetings. Emma's nicer than Junko as well.

Here is my concepts thread, which contains info on the two of them.

V6 Siblings
I have a Luz kid now. I'm trying to keep it so it doesn't step on any other ideas peepz may have, but let me know if I need to change something if it does.

Anyways, I think Meds' idea, specifically this one:

Quote:
 
If people want mafia stuff in their family, they can always make the parent that isn't Luz have connections with it, so it shouldn't stuff anyone up even if they did want mafia stuff in the backstory.


Is a good one. After all, there's a whole other side of the family involved here. It doesn't seem to change the Luz concepts posted about too much so far, and if someone would like to touch upon those themes they can, just on the other side of the family!

Suddenly, a Relationship Thread
So there's a good chance I may join v6 after all! So far I have two three fine ladies that would love to be your friend. Or enemy. Or love interest. Or whatever you can see!

I might add their relationships in this post later on, but for now, here's what I wrote about them in the concepts thread copypasta'd, plus cliffnote-versions!


Emma Aguilar Luz- I was working on her, and then remembered that I was planning on making a Luz. So she's a Luz now, yay!

Emma is a bookish girl, who loves reading and studying. I'm thinking that she might know how to play the piano as well. She's generally pretty studious and academic-focused. I'm also thinking that she might be on the student council?

Ems' parents identify as preppers, and growing up Emma has been familiar with the basics of surviving a disaster. When she was younger she would often go on camping trips with them, and while she doesn't as often she still does on a few occasions. At some point, she was also enrolled in self-defense classes, at least partly as a response to the SOTF terrorist attacks. However, the thing that mainly interests her is first aid, and while she's not a substitute for a doctor she knows a lot of information about it.

Starting from her early teens Emma has experienced medical symptoms such as drowsiness during the day, muscle weakness, and sleep paralysis. While at first she thought it was stress, she was eventually diagnosed with narcolepsy with cataplexic symptoms, and prescribed medication for it. At first Emma tried not to tell anyone about her diagnosis out of fear that it would impact how people see her, but nowadays tends to tell people about it as early as possible so that they know what to do if she's having symptoms. Emma has been concerned about whether her health problems would effect her life later on, but tries her best to get past it. In addition, it's made her a little health conscious; she exercises regularly at the local fitness club and rarely, if ever, eats junk food. On campus she has a few accommodations for her condition.

At school, Emma is well-liked due to her generally being friendly and knowledgeable. She's, as I said, bookish, but extroverted. Ems' is a bit on the cautious side, as a result of growing up with a prepper background as well as her condition. As you might suspect, she tends to make friends with other academically inclined people. I imagine she has a bit of an ambitious side to her, and is driven to succeed. As for her relationship to the rest of the Luz family, I imagine she'd be generally close to them.

Cliffnote Version
- One of the Luz kids. I'm trying to keep it open so that I won't step on any other Luz ideas.
- Academically focused; likes reading and studying.
- Plays piano?
- On student council.
- Parents are preppers; while she does know self-defense and basic survival skills, the main thing she's good at is first aid.
- Diagnosed with narcolepsy. As a result, she tends to be more health-conscious.
-Well-liked among her classmates, especially the more academic crowd. Also one of the nicer members of the popular crowd.
-Nice and friendly, though cautious.


Junko Kurosawa- In some ways she's changed, and other ways she's the same as before. Junko is, has, and always will be an adrenaline junkie. As a kid she and her friends ended up watching Jackass, and attempted to come up with their own stunts. Naturally, that was put to a stop quickly. As a teen, she practices parkour/freerunning, rollerblades, and is on the track team. If it involves getting your blood pumping, as a general rule Junko will be right there the second you even suggest it. Overall, she's a tomboyish girl with an adventurous and thrill-seeking personality.

Junko is the adoptive daughter of a lesbian couple, and personally identifies as pansexual. She tends to be sensitive about LGBT issues, and as a result of growing up in a more conservative town she has a tendency to become defensive and cranky due to people reacting negatively to her family and their choices, especially since she tends to be more liberal in general.

Aside from her adrenaline junkie antics, she has a few "geeky" ones. Junko likes cartoons (both Western and anime), comic books, and video games. Her favorites tend to be more of the "action" flavor; think things like Dragonball Z, fighting games, or superhero comics. Though, now that I think of it, it makes sense that she likes a few horror games as well.

As mentioned before, she's on the tomboyish side, and more athletically inclined in general. Junko's a bit prideful and a bit of a show-off, though as I said, she tends to have a bit of a temper, both about her family and about things in general, At school, she's a bit of a procrastinator, and while not necessarily a slacker she occasionally has to be reminded about upcoming due dates for projects. Otherwise, though, she gets decent grades consistently. Junko's close to both of her mothers, perhaps to the point of being a "mommy's girl".

Cliffnote Version
- Adrenaline junkie. Early antics inspired by Jackass, but nowadays gets her dose in more healthy ways (parkour/freerunning, track, and rollerblading).
- Is officially on the track team, as that parentheses suggests.
- Adoptive daughter of lesbian couple; close to both of her mothers.
- Identifies as pansexual
- Is sensitive about LGBT issues as a result, and is one of the people with more liberal leanings in general.
- Likes video games, animation, and comic books. Tends to prefer more action-focused works.
- Prideful, a bit temperamental.
- Procrastinator.

Jennifer Wallace- Jennifer is an aspiring journalist, and part of the school newspaper. Like Ems, she is more on the academic side. However, she's fairly introverted. Jennifer's not by any means a loner, but more someone who can come off as cold and quiet to people who don't know her very well. While she tends to dress in a somewhat vintage/retro feminine style, she's actually a bit more tomboyish than she looks; she prefers to make friends with boys, and in her spare time she enjoys urban recreation.

She also enjoys painting and photography; while she prefers photography more, she paints a ton too. Sometimes Jennifer takes pictures of her ventures into urban exploration, and, while she doesn't post them online or show them off, uses them as a reference for her paintings. I'm currently thinking that she's the type that would be interested in adventures to the ghost towns around Kingman, and perhaps maybe hiking in the mountains? She also likes to read, with a preference towards mystery novels. While she doesn't admit it, she still has her Nancy Drew novels from when she was a kid, even though her tastes have matured. She also likes watching movies, generally older classic or arthouse-y. General rule: if it's appeared on Brows Held High, there's a decent chance she's seen it.

As I said before, she's a bit introverted and hard to get to know, but she's polite, if a little snarky. She can get a little nitpicky and finicky at times, but she at least tries to voice her criticisms in a polite way. Jennifer is a good student, and is dead set on her becoming a journalist.

By the way, she has a horrible caffeine addiction. She drinks around three cups of coffee a day, possibly more when she's working hard overnight. When she doesn't get her fix, she gets irritable and has headaches.

Cliffnote Version
- Aspiring journalist, part of the school newspaper
- Academically focused.
-While she dresses in a somewhat feminine vintage/retro way, she is tomboyish.
- Likes urban exploration, and may be up for hiking and ghost town visits.
- Likes painting and photography, though more so for photography.
- Watches older and/or arthouse-y films.
- Introverted and a little quiet, but she's polite. She can get snarky and finicky, but she tries to stay polite.
- Has a horrible habit of drinking a lot of coffee.

Got any ideas? Post them here!

ROAD TRIP!
I think Junko would actually be up for something like this. She'd love a roadtrip. : D

NAFT'S character dump
Junko and Kelsey: hate hate hate? : D

I do also see something with Emma and Asher, seeing as they're both academic-focused.

What are your thoughts? Here's my recent post in the concepts thread for more info on the two of them.

[Help!] I Forget Who I Have Relations With (´・ω・`)
Question: is Jazzy the kind of weeb that acts spectacularly creepy towards Asian people?

If so... I have Junko, and Junko would probably not be amused by any creepy antics. XD

I suppose she might be vaguely friendly with Scout as well, seeing as they're both into games, but what are your thoughts on that?

Here's her updated info.

Friends? Friends.
I have female characters. You have Dante Valiero. He's at least known to every girl in the school, since he's flirted with all of them at least once over the years. How they respond to that is totally up to me, but yes, at least once a tall handsome Italian boy has swanned up to them, handed them a rose and called them beautiful. It's what he does.

*sorry, couldn't resist*

Anyways, while we're on that subject, I think Junko is the kind of person to be all "..." about the flirting thing. I don't really see her being super-offended by the whole thing, but I do see her thinking that it's a little strange. Like "This guy walked up to me, called me pretty, and gave me a rose. Okay then. Wait, he's doing this to every girl? That's... weird." She's a little on the aggressive, cocky, temperamental side, but I don't think anything Dante does would set her off. At most, her impression of him would be basically "Kind of strange, plays up the Italian lover thing, but eh, can't really be too offended". Ems, on the other hand, I'd imagine would be a bit more receptive. I'd imagine her to also find it a little strange at first, but she would be kind and polite towards him. I don't see her flirting back, but I do see her being friendly towards him (she's generally a friendly girl to begin with).

About the other kids, I don't see Junko and Ivy getting along. At all. Junko's an athletic, thrill-seeking tomboy. Ivy is a pastel goth mean girl. To me, that sounds like a wonderfully disastrous combination. I'd imagine that they'd piss each other off whenever they interact. As for Ems, I'm thinking that she might know how to play the piano, so she may or may not be involved in school band stuff. If she is, well, Ivy's more protective side might kick in. She's also part of the popular group, so they'd at least be somewhat close. Emma's not the kind of person to be particularly gossip-y herself, and is one of the sweeter members, so she would be frowny-face at some of her meaner moments.

Now Moira. I think any interaction with Junko and her could be interesting, since Junko is in some ways what Moira's trying to be. She's a bit on the cocky side, athletic, tomboyish, and a bit defensive. Not sure how close they'd be, but I'd imagine that it'd bring out interesting characterizations from both of them if they run into each other in a thread. I don't see her being super-close with Ems, either, but I think that if she ever finds out about Moira's other personality she'd be supporting of her coming out of her shell in a more genuine way.

Gwen? I do see her and Junko being frenemies. Junko herself is pansexual, but I'm not too sure if they would have had a thing. But in any case, she would go between "Oh, Gwen's cool" and "Goddamn, get a chill pill". Perhaps they could constantly screw each other over in games as well? Ems, I don't see them interacting a whole lot, but if they did, I could see her getting a little frustrated at her attitude. She's a bit more on the academic side, and I don't see them getting along too well if they ever interact.

Thoughts on all these? Here's my recent post in the concepts thread for more information on Emma and Junko.

POPULISM YEAH YEAH
You know, now that I think of it, my new girl Emma might fit. I'm thinking she might be on the student council, and she's generally pretty friendly and nice. At the very least she could be somewhat popular with the more academic crowd?

Thoughts?

Resource Thread
I also recommend going through wikiHow. Basically, it's what you think it would be: a wiki on how to do various things! If you need quick, easy-to-read info on your characters' hobbies, skills, and other details I suggest taking a quick look through the articles on that subject. Of course, I'm not sure how accurate it is as a source, but it's a good jumping point for your research. Plus, some of the articles can give you inspiration on character concepts (for example, one of the characters I use elsewhere was inspired by this one).

V6 Concepts Thread
Alright, second concept, plus an update on Junko.

Emma Aguilar Luz- I was working on her, and then remembered that I was planning on making a Luz. So she's a Luz now, yay!

Emma is a bookish girl, who loves reading and studying. I'm thinking that she might know how to play the piano as well. She's generally pretty studious and academic-focused. I'm also thinking that she might be on the student council?

As for her relationship to the rest of the Luz family, I imagine she'd be generally close to them.

Thoughts on her? I'm still a little unsure if she's any good or not. I'll try to keep it so she doesn't make anything official about the rest of the Luzs.
