Hey, gang.

This is more or less just a spot for me to keep the relationships that I've begun with people in order. That said, feel free to post here if you desire a spot with either of my characters.

Hansel Williams
The Cowboy. Hansel is a right wing conservative Catholic who has extreme views on most any topic that has to do with homosexuality, infidelity, the death penalty. As a result, he tends to dislike and alienate a great many people. Surly and quiet due to a stutter that he hides behind an impression of John Wayne, he's a hard friend to make and a harder friend to keep.

The Good
Ian Williams --- Friends
"Ian's a breath of fresh air. Could use more bite in 'em, but it's nice t'find a like mind now and again."
Megan Emerson --- Friends
"It's nice ta find a kindred spirit in all o'this. Even if she's got... odd taste in friends."
Joe Carrasco --- Friends
"'E don't got a lot o'backbone 'bout his religion, but I reckon any o' God's friends is a friend o'mine."
Maynard Francis Hurst --- Liked
"Vegetarians. Hah. Ridiculous s'what they are. Despite turnin' his nose at a good steak, Maynard ain't bothered me, and he gets animals almost as much as yours truly."
Sophie McDowell --- Liked
"I'll never understand paintin' over a solid piece o' charcoal, but Sophie's alright. Good head on her shoulders."
Juhan Levandi --- Liked
"Seems a good sort. Could see me hangin' out with 'im more regular."
Summer Simms --- Liked
"Bit too energetic fer my tastes, but I reckon she's nice enough."
Sven Olson --- Liked
"Sven has a long way t'go before he's redeemed. But he's a good fella. I'll be a good influence, I think."
Cassidy Kant --- Liked
"I enjoy 'er company. She's a good pal."


The Bad
Garrett Wilde --- Enemy
"Fuckin' mess is what this guy is. Him an' his hippie lovin', thesis swingin' grandfather."
Travis Webster --- Hatred
"Devil's got a strong hold on 'im. Most I can pray for is a quick arrest an' a harsh lesson."
Makatala 'Kam' So'oialo --- Hatred
"Ain't bad enough she munches rugs; 'stead she has to go matchin' that with a shitty personality."
Aileen Abdallah --- Hatred
"Christ. If there were one person I could strangle happily, it'd be this bitch."
Lana Torres --- Hatred
"So full o' shit, her eyes are brown."
Theodore Fletcher --- Dislike
"It ain't right. Ain't proper. 'Least most fairies got the decency to pick a gender."
Rose Matheson --- Dislike
"She don't even know the meanin' of virtue. Might as well wear velcroe pants."
Andi Victorino --- Dislike
"Dumb slut got herself knocked up. Begins and ends there, I figure."
Matt Vartoogian -- Dislike
"'E ain't got a damn clue about the world an' how it's run. He's already damned, just don't know it yet."
Miranda Millers --- Dislike
"High-and-mighty uptight bitch. Less said th' better."
Alex Ripley --- Dislike
"Somethin' jus' rubs me th' wrong way 'bout her."
Max Sawyer --- Dislike
"Asshole. Uptight, no good asshole. He can take his city money and poor attitude an' sit down hard on a picket fence."
Katherine Ryan --- Dislike
"Another pair o' spread thighs in a city filled with 'em. At this rate, th' pharmacist probably owns two yachts."

The Very Good
Mirabella Strong --- Crush
"Wha' about her? Nothin'. I don' have an opinion. Why, is she askin'?"



Brandon Baxter
The Jock. Brandon is a big, boisterous young man who loves being the center of attention. Known for his impressions and comedic timing, Baxter loves nothing more than to hit a few guys wearing full football gear in the morning, then settle down to imitate his classmates in the evening. Behind that large funny-man schtick, however, lies a temper that's legendary and a very thin skin. Brandon's one of those people that you befriend, because having him as your enemy is much worse.

Stand Up Guys and Gals
Cody Patton --- O Captain, My Captain
"Ahhh, Cody. There's nobody better to unwind with and shoot the shit after a hard day's work.
Lana Torres --- Gym Buddies
"Lana? Lana's a blast! You need someone else in the gym to get the competition goin', you know?"
Joey Caputo --- Fellow Gym Prowler
"Aw, I love the big beefcake. He's one tough nugget to keep up with in the gym, though."
Mike Eastmund --- Makes Great Shakes
"What's not to like about Mike? Solid player in the backfield, and he, you know, punches dudes for fun."
Owen Kay --- Decent Sort
"British as hell, but great conversation starter. Also pretty funny!
Alex Ripley --- Casually Friendly
"Well, yeah, I guess we say what's up in the halls, but I doubt we'll get each other Christmas cards."
Megan Emerson --- She's Okay
"Uhh, I think we both didn't like Math. Can't say she's ever crossed paths with me."
Sven Olsen --- Fellow Skirt Chaser
"Sven, da? Da, is good friend of mine. We drink wodka togezzer and chase ze women!"

The Pricks and Bitches
Miranda Millers --- Nuisance
"Does she know how much like a duck she looks when she's scoffing at me?"
Max Sawyer --- Easy Target
"You know, I lay awake at night wondering how many times he's sodomized himself with that club he uses to get that colossal stick up his ass. Any sport where you can drink and play, old buddy, is not a sport.
Joe Carrasco --- Belongs in a locker
"I take personal exception to Skeletor's presence. It's not enough that he looks like a zombie; he has to have the brain of one, too."
Andi Victorino --- Someone Slept With That?
"I'm just surprised that the spawn of some bitchy slave driver didn't fall out of her oven when that cake was finished baking."
Theo Fletcher --- Little Shit
"Useless as tits on a bowl. I don't care about Shrimpy's sexual preference, just his general presence."
Garrett Wilde --- Weird Dude
"This is the type of motherfucker that rubs philosophy on his junk when alone."
Gwendolyn O'Connor --- Don't Get Me Started
"What is it with these 'pussy-fest' kids, anyway? They're all 'Fight the power!' and then don't do anything!"
Francis St. Ledger --- Needs to Chill The Fuck Out
"If there was anybody more on their rag than Franky-boy, I've certainly yet to meet them."

How You Doin'?
Michelle Wexler --- She Rocks a Swimsuit
"There's very few things I like in this green Earth more than a brunette in tight swimwear.
Summer Simms --- A Lady on the Streets
"I think that if I ever got Summer out of the spotlight and into more... private circumstances, she'd probably be a tigress. A man can dream."
Katherine Ryan --- Why Yes, I've Hit That
"Ahhh, Kathy, Kathy, Kathy. We had some good times. Call me soon!"
Jaquilyn Locke --- Requires A 'Hands On' Approach
"Heh. Jaq's got a lot of style. She's an awesome girl to hang out with, and I'm glad we met."
Amy Bachelor --- What a Voice
"Don't tell anyone, but I am absolutely crippled by a British accent."

Not necessarily! Maynard's timid nature might be appealing to Hansel, depending on how it's introduced. Since Hansel feels alienated due to his beliefs, he'd appreciate someone who A) doesn't bite back about them, and B) has a common interest in animals.

Also the vegetarianism would be a point of interest. Hell, Hansel might even joke about it!

I'll read those profiles and shoot you a private message. :)

Mararoone: Ooh. Hansel could always use friends! I'll add Juhan to the list under "Liked" and I'll send you a fancy PMthinger about the two of 'em.

Nuggets: Iiiiiiinteresting. I'll give your characters a look over and see if we can find any specific points of contention, though I think you're largely correct: they probably would more or less ignore each other.


I'm going to be adding Baxter to this thread as well.

Thanks, Vyse! I really like the points you've brought forward.

I'd like to go with the fragile friendship route, because I feel like there could be a lot of growth there that we can explore, either from the past or in the present. From what I understand from what you've said, Ian's perspective of Hansel is that he has his heart in the right place and his faith is solid, but he could most definitely work on his interactions with other human beings. I think Hansel would take the stance of respecting Ian and what Ian did, but feeling like Ian could 'grow a pair'.

I'll send you a private message as well to elaborate, but if that sounds A-Okay to you, I'll toss Ian into the 'friends' category.

@BROSeidon: Yes, that's perfect! Added Matt to the "Dislike" column!

@Pippin: I like it! Just mild dislike and avoidance for the most part. Amazing.

I'll be adding Baxter to the above threads and listing his varying relationships, as well. If you guys want to plot with Brandon Baxter, his profile's contained within my signature.

Hansel Responses!

Jill
 
I'm really sorry I'm about to say this, but I can see Megan being a "pity friend" with Hansel (or at least in one of the ways where it started out as a pity friendship). They're both from the South, so they have the geography thing going on (albeit completely different sections of the South, but work with me here). Obviously with his extremely close-minded views, he has a really hard time making friends, which I think would rub Megan in a "I feel sorry for this guy" way, getting past her own tendency to put up walls to reach out to him. She knows how to keep her opinions to herself, so I can imagine she'd make a good outlet for him. However, I think she would appreciate his art skills as that would be something she wishes she had. Plus, who doesn't like animals? The only problem is that she's pretty good friends with Theo, but at the same time she's friends with Mirabella, so I don't know how that would go.


Yes, yes and yes. Hansel wouldn't begrudge her her friends because he'd be happy to have one of his own, so I don't think there would be too many troubles there.

Added Megan as a friend for now, and I look forward to seeing if that stands up down the line.

Kami
 
How vocal is Hansel about things like his homophobia and such? The impression I get is that it comes up during conversations and such, but he won't go harassing students on a whim? Am I right in this?


You are correct! When pressed he'll state his opinion, but he doesn't soap box about it unless backed into a corner or if he's having a bad day.

Kami
 
I'm thinking Alex doesn't like him too much if his behavior does go out of line, or at least she gets annoyed that he doesn't talk too much in group discussions and then starts saying inappropriate things when he's made to respond.


Okay. I'm getting a moderate dislike to ambivalent feeling between the two, based off of that. I'll add her under "Dislike".

Kami
 
Lana and Hansel: HAAAAAAAAAATE. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE.


Agreed! Added under Hatred. :)

Kami
 
Miranda? Oh Hansel, what a bag of laughs. Miranda is a mean girl sort, and while she acts that way out of insecurity, she's probably been mean to Hansel before. He stutters, is all Texan-y, and thinks things that make people hate him. What more could you want in someone to be horrible to? I imagine some of his homophobia could strike close to home in some cases, seeing as Miranda's kind of a closet-case, but other than that... don't expect kindness out of Miranda.


Iiiiiiiiiinteresting! I like this, especially since it's twisted to be that Miranda's the antagonistic one. New and different. I'll add her under the Bad above. :)



Baxter Responses

Jill
 
As for Brandon...hmm. He and Megan don't really have anything in common, and I'm a little sure that she'd find him to be a really loud and obnoxious person. His history of having a bad temper and using physical force to his advantage doesn't help, either.


They also both struggled in math, so they may have shared a dislike of the subject. Beyond that, yeah, I'd most certainly agree with your summation. So I could see them as knowing of each other and agreeing to mutual avoidance.

Kami
 
As for Brandon, if he's taking his anger out on other students she's probably going to go "Hey! Stop that!". Alex herself can also be rather temperamental as well (though for her it's more because she tends to get passionate about things), so if they were to ever argue it would be glorious. I think she'd probably tolerate him otherwise, though, and perhaps even find some of his comedy routines funny.


A good, solid point. I think these too can forge some sort of a "Hey, how's it going?" thing. Be friendly without actually being friends, you know?

Kami
 
With Brandon, she'd know of him, since she's one of the more athletic students at the school (though wrestling, not football). I'm thinking that they'd know each other if they were to, say, both practice in the weight gym at once, and have probably had a few conversations which probably went fairly pleasantly.


I think we can make them share a mutual like, possibly even a light friendship with each other. Just shootin' the shit while pumping iron. :)

Kami
 
Brandon, if anything, would be more a friend of a friend. Miranda's one of the "popular crowd" students, and while I don't think Brandon applies, she'd probably be familiar with the football team members. She'd probably get annoyed at least at his temper, and roll her eyes at his jokester nature, though.


I think we can make this one somewhat "tolerant", maybe going into the territory of dislike. If she rolled her eyes at his jokes, he'd likely pick up on it and grump at her.

To confirm, Jill and Kami:

Hansel is adding:
Megan as a Friend.
Alex as a Dislike.
Lana as a Hatred
Miranda as a Dislike

Brandon is adding:
Megan as an Ambivalent
Alex as a Casual Friend
Lana as a Gym Buddy
Miranda as a Nuisance.

Sounds like a plan, Un-Persona my man. I'll toss R.J. into the list for Hansel as a "Like", but a mild one.

Are you open to R.J. and Baxter having a somewhat antagonistic relationship?

Hey, Pippin! Sorry, I saw that you posted way earlier and it got sandwiched within a bunch of other topics. I'll be reading your profiles and you can expect a PM!

Un-Persona, same deal goes. :)
