@Slamexo: likes dudes the way you like dudes? Ho ho ho....That sounds fun. You should give him a boyfriend!
@Hollyquin: I really like Winston; I think he will be an interesting character to follow.


My V5 concepts are:

Oliver Foo

He has gone through many different stages and almost got scrapped once. Known by most as a tall Asian dude who plays (in a band?basketball?). His parents aren't very rich and they don't have much. Oliver has an older sister who sends home money and pays his school fees, but when Oliver was 16, he learned the fact that she's involved in porn. Though upset, he didn't tell his parents.

Oliver wants to grow apart from his sister and be independent. He applies for trade school instead of college. He's candid, realistic (bordering on negative), self reliant, and very frugal. Oliver feels disconnected from women and has difficulties building intimate relationships with them.

Felicia Doyle
Felicia is still stuck in development hell right now. I want her to be someone who recently falls down the social ladder and wants to quickly get back up again. I don't want her to be the queen bee, though; maybe she's one of the lackeys or something. She is self conscious, naive, and a bit slow. She also likes to act dumb in front of men, but other than that, she's actually an easy going and kind person.

Questions:
I still have troubles deciding on what actually happened to her. An ex-boyfriend spreading nasty rumors? How about she got kicked out the cheerleading squad? But why? Or maybe, she wrote her true feelings about the other girls in her blog, under an alias, but then got caught?

@Arscapi:
I've been planning to put my character (Oliver Foo) in the basketball team. Maybe he can be one of Bianca's boyfriends (past or current)?


@Pippin:
Owen Kay:
I wonder what kind of things happened to his past. Maybe you can connect it with the reason why he moved to the US? To me, he seems to be a friend who look and act like a normal teen, but has hidden depth.

Stefan Syracuse:
With that neon green hair, he's going to stick out. He's quiet interesting! It would be nice to see his thought process and how he interacts with other students. "Acting like a dick, without really meaning to" Maybe he's just too straightforward/insensitive? I think it would be fun you can find him a friend (with opposite personality) to argue with.

Chase Rodriguez:
He sounds like a weird-but-cool guy to hang out with. It's nice to see him care for his sister. The only critique I have is that he doesn't seems to have negative feelings towards anything...or maybe that's a good thing.



I'll greatly appreciate some critics as well. Mine needs a lot of improvement~

@Hollyquin:

Winston Evans:
Like I said in my posts before, I think Winston is very interesting and realistic character. And I like the fact that he loves to party but put school work first. I can actually imagine him walking around the school and having a lot of girl friends. I wonder what relationship he has with his male friends, though.

Cap'n Allie:
She seems to be a nice girl and her personality wins her a lot of friends. But if I wore an eye patch like that to school, I'm sure some students will mock me behind my back. I might have issues with self-esteem.

Aidan Jacoby:
I have a soft spot for self-destructive assholes, so....I'm in love with Aidan. I think you'll have a blast with him. It's always fun writing the bad guy, since they can say anything they want. And I love the fact that he's so full of himself. It will be interesting to see him perform on the island.

Chitose Sakubara:
Chitose sounds like someone I know. She's that quiet girl who sits in the back of the class, being immersed in her own world. You will wonder why she can't be more social or fit into the mold. Some people might talk behind her back, but I don't think she will care. Well, maybe a little bit.

Most of your characters seems very real; they are like normal people you can meet everyday. I'll look forward to read their stories.

So many interesting concepts, yum.

Rory...I just want to give him a hug! Please don't make him suffer too much on the island.

Hiro reminds me of my close friend. She's also very short and thin. When she was younger, she felt conscious about herself. She hated shopping for clothes and always dressed in a boyish fashion. I don't think it is because of a gender identity issue; it is more of a self-confidence issue. Among the sea of teenage girls with womanly figures, I think Hiro feels like the odd one out. It's only natural for her to start doing her own things. To me your character looks fine; but since she can be misunderstood easily, she needs to be handled very carefully. I wish you the best of luck.

With Garret and Alfred, one word crosses my mind: bromance. The gamer chick sounds cool, by the way. Just a suggestion, but what about making her a cosplayer? I noticed that most of cosplayer girls are hardcore gamers as well.

I need to tidy up, but here are my concepts:

Oliver Foo
He's that guy who tags along a group of boys, but never contributes much and likes to stay in the background. Oliver doesn't stress over small stuff; he's laid back, reserved, and considerate. He'll say the truth, but always finds a way to soften his words. A practical and realistic person, he keeps his feet on the ground and never dreams big. His goal is to live independently. His older sister is involved in the porn industry and currently paying his school fees. He was raised in a female-dominated house; both his mother and older sister have strong personalities. He seems to be allergic to women and don't know how to deal with them.

Felicia Kwon
A girl who used to be popular, but now is at the bottom of the food chain. Felicia is a normal teenage girl who wants to feel accepted. She got herself into a gang of popular girls, despite knowing that she didn't have anything in common with them at all. She lived in a lie for a while and used her anonymous blog as an outlet. Too bad she got caught, and things just got worse from there.

Felicia comes from an upper-middle class family. Both of his parents are working and she has an older brother who's already married. She's the type of girl that has been lonely for a long time, but never realizes it. Felicia is naive, but also impulsive and narrow-minded. She has difficulties saying 'no' and wants to be liked by her friends.

I'm wondering if Jessica Lik can take the role of the popular bitch for Felicia's plot?
