FoS: Dete Roleclaiming this early with no real pressure is odd, to say the least.

Question: Favorite quote?
Garrett: "I am a man of my principles, but if you don't like them, I have others."~Groucho Marx

Alfred: "Therefore do not worry, for who among you by worrying may add a single hour to his life?"~Jesus Christ

Lee: "That which can be destroyed by truth, should be."~P.C. Hodgell

Why are you here?

Question: When's the last time a fictional work seriously frightened you?
Garrett: Philip K. Dick's "Autofac" was rather jarring to me. I don't normally get scared, but that story left me feeling very uneasy, if not necessarily frightened.

Alfred: "Hopfrog" by Edgar Allan Poe. I had to read it for American Literature, and I can't stop thinking about it. Who writes that kind of messed up story?

Lee: Definitely "House of Leaves". That book was so freaky, and what made it worse was weird little things about my copy, like small scratch marks that get deeper for a few pages when he's first describing being stalked by something. I swear those weren't there when I started reading, I almost pissed myself the first time I saw that shit.

Question: If you had to have any superpower, what would it be?

Garrett: Time travel. It's clearly the best super power.

Alfred: I'd want to fly. Flying seems like it would just be perfect.

Lee: The ability to copy other super powers. That's right, everybody else chooses one, and I get to pick all of them. Game to Penbur.

If you could do anything once and get away with it, what would you do?

QUESTION: If you could make your least favorite movie better, what would you change?
Garrett: I would force whoever wrote the screenplay for Lightning Thief to stick to the book and not be a massive racist.

Alfred: I make it so that in that movie Inception, the main guy's wife didn't go crazy. Garrett and I watched that one once, and it made me really sad what happened to her.

Lee: I would round up everyone involved in the creation of Stardust's screen adaptation, and make them apologize to Neil Gaiman one by one. Then I'd force them to make the real movie. After that, I'd take all the copies of the original movie an everything related to it, and nuke it all from orbit. It's the only way to be sure, dude.

A call to the fringe
Hey all!

I'm looking to build some relationships for my concepts. None of them lend terribly well to mass popularity, but they would all have some sort of presence. I'm thinking their general social status would be along the lines of:

Garrett: Garrett would mesh well with any debaters or amateur philosophers in the group. He's not necessarily anti-social insomuch as uncomfortable to be around due to his Stoicism. He's loyal and kind at heart, but he prefers not to get involved in conflicts directly. He has a very close Older Brother-esque relationship with my second concept, Alfred. He'd probably have a few enemies just because of how protective he is of Alfred, and I'm also looking for at least one person who openly thinks he's a freak because of his philosophy. Long term he's going to have to do a lot of justifying of his views to himself and others if he survives very long in the game, and I'd like to start practicing that in the pregame.

Alfred: Alfred's relationships are much, much simpler than Garrett's. He hasn't been around long, relatively, he doesn't hang out with anyone after school and rarely attends social events, and while in school Garrett's laid down an unspoken "look but don't touch" policy. He carries a certain innocent charm, and I don't personally see him as having very many outright enemies just because he's basically the K.K. Slider. He'd probably be loose friends with the more musically inclined people around the school, and I'd be interested in writing a romantic sub-plot for him. Other than that, I don't personally see him as having much of an affect on people's lives pregame because of both Garrett and his father's protective instinct towards his innocence.

Lee: Lee's got a very complicated relationship with the school. Just given his interests he'd be friends with any other sci-fi and anime enthusiasts, but given his propensity for looking for secrets, I can't see him having very many close friendships. Trust would definitely be an issue in any of his relationships. Since he's very discreet about how much he knows, there would be no direct reason for him to have enemies, but I'm sure he probably would be blamed for a decent portion of any rumor outbreaks that occur. I know I want some people with skeletons in their closet that just hate, hate, hate him. He'd get a kick out of it, and his personality would make such clashes enjoyable to write.

So, that's about it. If you have a character that you think would interact well with any of these strange gents, just let me know. As a note, I'm very open to exploring relationship ideas not outlined above, any and all ideas are quite welcome. These guys can develop in so many directions, and I want to explore as much of that potential as possible.

Thanks for reading!

Question: If you could own any fictional creature as a pet, which one would you choose?

Garrett Jairus: Like all logical men, I want dragon. Why? I have a better question for you: Why not?

Alfred: Hmm. Probably one of those really smart horses from C.S. Lewis's "Horse and His Boy." How cool would it be to have a talking horse?

Lee: Dak from Tuf Voyaging. A psychic kitten would just be the best pet ever, even with all the other crazy things Tuf manages to cook up. If I had one of those, I think I'd be set for life.

Question: Are there any particular fandoms that you find particularly annoying?

Garrett: Twilight fangirls. I swear on Nichomachean Ethics that if I ever get a time machine, I will burn every copy of those damned books that ever existed to the ground.

Alfred: You mean like groups of people that like stuff? I guess guys who are really into like gangster rap and stuff. Dad says it's the gateway to a life of malevolence, whatever that means.

Lee: Okay, I know I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, but I can't stand bronies. I get it, you like the weird show made for young girls, whatever floats your boat, but stop clogging my message boards up with your creepy pictures n' shit. Get help, guys.

If you could change one thing about the universe, what would it be?

Question: Anyone you have a crush on? Tell us.
Garrett: I'm not really into the whole romance thing. Too much potential negativity. I find a good friend to be a far more pleasant companion.

Alfred: A crush? What's that?

*Following a brief aside with Garrett*

Oh! Gosh, I haven't really thought about that. Dad says womenfolk bring the kind of trouble that I don't want any part of until I'm ready for a family of my own, and that's just not part of the plan right now.

Lee: Heh, who's asking? Really though, I don't spill about anyone else, and I like to think my own secrets deserve that same level of professional courtesy. I mean, come on, if you can't keep your own business straight how can you be trusted with anyone else's?

And because I was pro ninja'd:

Question: You're fighting an invading force (NOT zombies). What sort f role are you taking, and how are you fighting?

Garrett: Tactician, probably. I would be ill-suited to front-line combat due to my predisposition to macro-thought, but I feel I could do well with planning troop movement and predicting enemy patterns.

Alfred: Hmm. Well, like any good American boy, I'd probably be out on the front with Dad. I don't really like violence, but I guess if we get invaded you've gotta do what you gotta do. Then again, Mom would probably worry, and someone needs to take care of her, so maybe I'd just stay with her and pray, since that's what Dad would want anyway.

Lee: Spy, dude. I would be grabbing secret missives and breaking codes all up in this war-time bitch. They'd call me "The Spectre" or "Mist" or some spooky shit like that. The name's Penbur. Lee Penbur.

Who's your least favorite schoolmate?

Question: What is your favorite class in high school and why?

Garrett: Probably Rhetoric. I feel it has the most applicable value.

Alfred: Oh, Music Theory hands down. I learned some from Jerry before he left, but I'm always excited to learn new things and explore what I can do. I know being a musician isn't a real job like Dad wants me to have, but it's still fun to goof around sometimes.

Lee: Study Hall. This stuff's all really just busy work at this point anyway, so at least they give me some time to do the stuff that's actually important. Besides, it gives me a chance to scope out the latest intel.

What does friendship mean to you?
