This Lad- OH MY GOD, WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?


So anyway, I was given Felicia Carmichael. I just finished her up today.

Felicia and I.....we don't exactly gel. The writing is good, that's not the problem. I think we're just two girls that don't click together. I found myself being drawn more to Aislyn and Melissa in the earlier threads and would like to take this opportunity to give shout outs to BetaKnight and Tythanin for jobs very well done. Part of the thing with Felicia is that there's a lot of references with her and if you don't get the references, you can feel a little lost. Video game references, Philip K. Dick references, trope references. I think I got about half of them and I was kindda proud. Felicia is kindda mile a minute in the way she thinks and I thought it was interesting how, especially early on, she frames the whole game and her experiences in terms of video games. It's a rather unusual coping mechanism.

Felicia's a fundamentally good girl kind of ends up with some bad circumstances, especially after the death of Tiffany. I'm really glad I got assigned her so I could take a look at a group I hadn't seen much of before, that being the girl group of Samaya, Felicia, Melissa and Aislyn which is a really cool little group. And she remains really positive up until the rescue.

Also Steven Hunt was really creepy when he hugged her. Just saying.

Ummm, so yeah. That was a short one but can't think of much else to say >_<

Throw me another one, Toben.



Three Rounds
Isabel walked into the arena, hips switching and swaying to the sound of the music and cheers from the crowd. She tossed back her mass of curly hair and her eyes scanned the space, sharp and critical as always. There was some aspect of her that could never be cured of her mistrustful, feral look. She tugged down on the collar of her long cream sweater, decorated with patterns of dark blue near her neck and at the bottom.

Isabel was somewhat fascinated by the crowd. The thought of watching Ray fight someone was always a little cringe worthy, no one liked seeing their friend take one to the face, but she was there to show support. A moment before she'd been holding onto the hand of Jennifer but it seemed she'd wandered off somewhere. Even though it was nerve wracking to watch Ray fight, there was also some excitement there that was only amplified by the crowd.

Isabel's hair fell over one of her eyes and she walked towards the seats on her own.

"Good evening, Mrs. Hansen," she said, only just loud enough to be heard over the noise.

V5 Concepts Thread
I think Issac looks pretty good. You've got a reason for his bad behavior and a pretty classic rich kid template that I like. This thread's just for bare bones stuff so you'll get a chance to flesh him out later fer sure. As is he looks like a winnar.

I gots a rich little miss who might see him as someone with raw potential with his money and looks if you want some interaction with a fussy pageant girl.

Introduction Thread
KYLE TOLD ME TO STOP GREETING NEW PEOPLE BECAUSE I SCARE THEM AWAY.


Howdy Conumbra and Aphex!

Aphex twins rock, btw and as a person who stocks enough alcohol to drunken up a small army, I can tell we're gonna get along : )

That Which Survives
Isabel walked back out of her apartment, up the three steps, past the crummy gate that never shut properly and to the side walk that had just been a circus of people. As seemed to be happening often lately, her hands were bloody. She sat on the curb and looked down at her clothes. Isabel's hands shook. She put her head in her lap and started laughing.

White mouse hovers over the progress.

Pause.

Isabel moves her deep almond eyes up.

"I didn't kill him if that's what you think. He got mad and came at me and I stabbed him like I said I would. He's fine, I promise. He still tries to talk to me sometimes. He sends me e-mails because he doesn't know my phone number or where I live now. I don't respond."

The white mouse clicks ahead in the progress.

Fast forward.

Isabel rang the door bell waited outside the door. She'd been to Feo's house, Ethan's house and Dave's house. The first two weren't so bad. She told them what they'd done for her and for everyone. She lost it at Dave's house though. His two brothers looked too much like him.

One of them looked blankly at her when she'd finished.

"....he was still an ass."

And though she was crying she couldn't help but laugh.

"He was, but he had a good heart."

The brothers looked at each other for a moment and then back at her.

".......no. No he didn't."

Isabel stood awkwardly in the door way for a minute.

"Well, thanks for stopping by," the taller one said, before slamming the door shut.

She'd left Dave's house a few hours ago. This was Helen's house.

Drag the progress forward

Isabel's eyes don't look up this time, instead staying glued to the screen.

"I love them all. It's funny how you don't realize what people mean to you until you don't have them anymore. I still wake up at night sometimes and ask for Dave."

Drop

Play

Isabel was packing her winter sweaters. A boy with a mop of curly hair leaned against the door frame.

"You going back to St. Paul for winter break?"

Isabel glanced at him a moment before siting on her luggage to try and zip it.

"Umm hmm. Help me out with this, Rob."

Robert and Isabel sat on the bag and she was finally able to close it. She sighed and sat on the floor, quickly followed by Robert.

"Gonna see my mom. Probably won't spent much time with her. The step kids and I don't really get along. I really mostly go back to see friends. And you?"

"Girlfriend and I are visiting the family. Gonna hit up San Francisco and visit my dad and older sister Adriana and then go up to Seattle and see Mom, Mathew and Michelle before winter semester starts up. Mom, Mat, Michelle, M M M."

Click

Pause

"Poor thing."

Isabel Guerra downloaded the torrent of all of Survival of the Fittest Version 4. She'd never missed an episode of Survival of the Fittest before now.

"Technically I didn't miss an episode of this version either. I was in it," she corrects.

Very well. In any case, she watched the torrent and didn't close her eyes. She watched the stories, unware until now of Raidon's romance with Mizore who had, in reality, tried to stop him. Isabel saw that her anger to Mizore was unwarranted, but she still didn't feel any forgiveness for him.

She broke down crying, curled up on the floor when her friend Simon was fatally shot with an arrow. However, she could not begrudge the way that he'd died. He went as he wanted to and for some reason, that did make her feel a little better.

Charlie, she'd died with Raidon talking to her about movies. She wished she could have saved her too. Another failure for her list.

And the girl she'd risked her life trying to find, her friend Hayley. Hayley did not kill in self defense and she had no remorse. Isabel wasn't sure how she felt about that. She sometimes wondered if she'd managed to find her in time, what it was she'd have found. What would Hayley say to her?

Dave, Leila, Winnie, Helen, oh Helen, Roland.....Roland hadn't meant to kill that boy at the fair after all, had he? Kitty, who killed in cold blood and died scratching and screaming, Annaliese, sweet girl who she watched fade in Ray's arms. There was even some strange detached feeling watching Rosa die just a few feet from her unconscious body. People she'd never met played out their dramas and were cut down brutally.


The video stopped

Well?


"Well...." Isabel sighs and wipes a few of her tears, having finished the torrent.

"I'm glad that I saw it all. I.....I never knew my class mates more than I do now at this moment. It was like.....like watching two hundred plus little tragedies. It's so hard to have a good perspective on things when you're in the middle but when you look down on it....when you can see everything happening at the same time..... and you can understand a little better."


Isabel bites her lip and moves a strand of her hair behind her ear.


"They were all....every one of them in their own ways..."

Isabel deletes Survival of the Fittest Version four and looks up at you.

Beautiful

Question: Favorite article of clothing you own?
Paris: I have a top hat I like to wear when I play guitar. It's a conversation starter. Also top hats are pretty cool in general.

Amaranta: A mink coat passed down from my mother. It's warm and it reminds me of my family, but it's also worth a small fortune. And I get a little rise out of pissing off the animal rights people.


Michelle: My girl scout unit made me a jacket with my nick name sewn into it, they call me Tigger like the tiger from Winnie the Pooh. I think it's adorable and it smells like girl scouts so it reminds me of good times. I....hu, that sounds kindda weird, when I think about it. But you know what I mean! Like, how stuff can smell like people. >_> <_<

Question: Favorite flavor of ice cream?
