Hiiiiiiii!!! It’s that timeeee again!!! So, I’d super-love to get some pre-existing relationships for my little kiddlywinks. I’m down for like, anything with any of ‘em, so don’t be scared to pitch any and all ideas to me! :3

Joshua Bracewell is the second of three boys born to the CEO of a pharmaceuticals company and an ex-fashion model, and has thusly grown up in a very economically comfortable family. His mother’s own poor upbringing led to an exposure to volunteer work from a young age, as their parents’ wanted them to appreciate how privileged they were; something that’s stuck with Joshua throughout his life. Despite trying their hardest, his parents’ workloads have caused some distance between them and their children, which has become something of a driving force for Joshua; he participates in a plethora of extracurricular activities and excels at sports and academics out of hopes that it’ll earn his parents’ love. He relaxes through playing the flute and piano, playing tennis, and playing with his pet cats. Personality-wise, he’s a fairly energetic, naïve, trusting, and idealistic individual, which can be easily taken advantage of. Will give you his lunch money and probably pay for all of your friends too. Asexual, but heteroromantic and has had a handful of relationships over the years.

Current Relationships:


The daughter of a restaurant manageress, Hazel Jung is an aspiring actress and skilled mathletes/track participant who is trying to deal with her attachment/trust issues and rebuild herself after a period of throwing herself from one relationship to the next. A member of the ‘Korean Mafia’, Hazel often finds herself conflicted when her staunch anti-bullying beliefs (resultant of her own experience with negative comments concerning her ‘easiness’) are put against her clique’s racist tendencies. Although she has a generally icy aura, an acidic tongue for those who earn her ire, and has difficulty letting down her defences, she truly cares about her friends and is a very loyal person. Is prone to occasional moments of unashamed fangirling over K-pop singers.

Current Relationships:


Although he conveys the carefully-constructed image of being a bubbly, outgoing kid, Oskar Pearce mostly does so to cover for his miserable home life: his mother died when he was young, and he has an extremely tenuous relationship with his father. Something of a doormat, Oskar is clingy, has very low self-esteem, and is a total people-pleaser, to the point where he’s frequently willingly compromised himself in order to improve someone’s opinion of him – such as regularly altering aspects of his personality to suit whomever he’s talking to. He’s bisexual and conveys an image of being sexually naïve to suit his public image (despite participating in casual sex fairly regularly). He loves Disney movies, singing, reading, cheerleading (being a flyer since freshman year), doing pilates and yoga to keep in shape/regulate stress (and to keep his weight down due to having having something of a sweet tooth), and socialising with whoever he can. He also works at a local bookstore to help supplement his father’s rather meagre income (they’re pretty lacking in the money front). Can often be seen wearing extremely garish outfits under the claim that it’s “adorable!”

Current Relationships:


Thanks in advance, guys! <3 <3

I think Henry and Joshua would get along, the two are a lot alike personality-wise. Helen might think of Joshua as a bit of a kid, but since they're both hard-working kids, they'll probably get along fine.

Hazel and Isaac are both in track, and I could see them being in a brief (possibly physical) relationship before splitting it off because Isaac and her wouldn't like each other much otherwise. They'd hate each other afterwards, I imagine.

Oskar and Alice might be friendly, since both like books and music and have several traits in common, but I imagine Alice would be a little shy around him since he's so clingy.

@Espi: I am actually in love with all of these ideas! Henry and Josh sound like they’d be good buds! I like Helen’s opinion of Josh too XD Hazel and Isaac’s relationship sounds perf – to me, I feel like it’d be towards the end of her string of boyfriends; when she was getting into relationships regardless of how she felt about the person, so long as they could give her the affection (however shallow – as in this case – it may be) that she needed. Oskar and Alice sounds great too! He’d probably take awhile to realise how shy his clinginess was making her, but other than that I think they’d be great chums! Convos about books and music galore <3 Also, I figure Helen and Hazel might at least be acquaintances? Seeing as they’re both theatre buffs~

And so I begin pimping out my lone kid to all of y'all with threads!

I feel like Joshua and Oswald might bond over music? But that depends on taste, really, and I still haven't decided whether or not to have Os actually play an instrument himself (probably harp and/or violin if he does). Otherwise they might have politics in common. Might be worth playing with when pregame proper rolls around but I'm on the fence.

I can see him and Hazel having previously dated? He's pretty and kind of an ass, the sort of person she'd probably want to distance herself from post image-change though, I think?

As for Oskar, Os might recognise him from the bookstore but probably thinks he's a bit of a dope, sort of a neutral, non-hostile but condescending kind of opinion. I don't think they'd really have much of a relationship of any kind.

Think Joshua would be a good potential tutor for my kid Rick. If Joshua was part of any afterschool free-tutoring programs Rick would definitely show up.

@Dr. Adjective: I like your idea for Josh & Os! Josh is pretty passionate about instruments, and if Os was a school band member as well then they’d definitely be buddies! If Os’ chosen instrument was the harp then Josh’d think that to be pretty cool, since it’s not something he’s seen much before and is shiny and new and exciting!!! Politics sounds like a good connection too! Like you say, pregame would be a good place to play around with it, and I’d absolutely love to thread with you! <3

As for when they dating... I could see it! But it’d have to depend upon her ‘dating timeline’ (LOL?) Like, the earlier on, the more of a mutual interest and good relationship they’d need to have (like her first ever boyfriend who’s-never-gonna-appear-‘cause-his-family-moved-400-miles-away-but-he-was-perfect-for-her, or Jacob Brooks, with whom she bonded over their dancing & distaste for bullies), but later on it’d be more a case of people dating her ‘cause they think she’s an easy screw (something she’s wholly unaware of until she hears her friends gossiping about her). So I guess it’s up to you where he’d fall in that area? But yeah, if they were exes, definitely not on good terms, I think XD

I like that idea with Os & Oskar! Oskar would definitely try to be friends with him, and if he realised how dopey Os thinks he is, then he’d make a concerted effort to change Os’ opinion in that regard~ So I think Oskar would think they’re friends, even if Os is neutral to him~ He’d also be pretty into Os’ alternative fashion, since Oskar’s more than a little quirky with the outfits he wears!

@MrsRandom: That sounds great! After-school volunteering sounds like something would Joshua would jump on quick as a bullet! <3

I dunno, I feel like Oswald would've actually liked her rather than just thinking she's easy; he does at least claim to reject promiscuous sex, whether that's entirely true or not. Could be that, to his mind, being in a relationship - even a short one - means it doesn't count as promiscuity? Either way, how into him she actually was is up to you, but I doubt they're still terribly friendly anyways.

Joshua:
- Clarice would probably get along with him. Hell if there's a volunteering club she'd be on board with that. Plus they both love animals (though Clarice is a dog person, but she loves cats too) and she'd like his general friendly 'be-cool-to-everyone' demeanor.
- Lily might need tutoring here and there. She's pretty smart and usually doesn't need it, but she tends to miss a fair amount of class due to random bouts of sickness so sometimes she needs help catching up.

Hazel:
- Well, judging by what I know of the Jacob/Hazel thing, sounds like Danny would probably dislike Hazel on principle. Exact details pending depending on the circumstances of the break-up. He'd be fine with her before that, though.
- Clarice probably wouldn't approve of, y'know, the racism of her clique. They share similar 'defend against bullies' tendencies, as well as some aggressive tendencies. Sounds like they would be on the same wave-length on some things and absolutely on opposide ends on other ways, so maybe kind of a 'I don't like her/some of the stuff she says/does, but I can respect these aspects of her I guess' thing.

Oskar:
- Danny's up for being sociable, for sure. (Though given the girly appearance all I can picture is Danny flirting with him and then going 'wait.' But that wouldn't sour Danny against him in a friend sense. xD)
- Similarly, Clarice is fine with socializing, although they don't have too much common ground.
- I think Lily would be alright with him, maybe friendship (they share a love of books) but if he's too clingy and intrudes on her alone time too much she might get very agitated. Depending on how far it went it could potentially end with a grudge, but if he can take a hint and leave her alone sometimes then she'd be okay with him. She also visits the bookstore he works at pretty regularly.

*deep breath* Here it comes... yet again... the spiel.

You have a female character. I have Dante Valiero. Bio here, 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 you, 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.

Anyway! That aside: Dante and Joshua would definitely get on. He's laid-back, generally friendly toward anyone who's friendly toward him, a bit of a dope, and he loves animals. Plus it looks like they already have a few mutual friends! He might know Oskar, too, if only because again he's generally friendly toward anyone receptive of friendliness. Ivy and Hazel would probably clash. I think she would rather like Joshua, though- she's generally nice to other band kids, and considering that he's a handsome asexual naive idealist she'd probably treat him kind of like a favored pet. ... Which is about as nice as she gets, so there's that.

@Medic: Yaaasss I love all of that! <3 The idea of Danny flirting with Oskar is hilarious XD I think if Oskar saw that Lily had a distaste for clinginess he’d probably back off – he’d rather restrain himself than lose a friend through over-enthusiasm, after all! There were two other thing I was thinking about as a potential thing with Clarice as well – firstly, her interest in filmmaking! Hazel embraces any opportunity to act, and would totally be down for helping Clarice out with her films! And secondly, her love of romance-y stuff – Oskar loves romance novels/movies, and they could totally binge on them together XD

@Fenris: The spiel is wonderful! I can’t wait to see some of these flirtations written out in full! I think with Hazel & Dante it would sorta depend on when the flirting happened? Like, if it was during her ‘many boyfriends’ period, she would’ve been all over that, but nowadays she’d be a tad more suspicious – if she saw that he wasn’t just out to get in her pants, however, I think she’d be cool with it and even admire him a little! I love all of your other ideas as well; I think they all mesh together perfectly! <3 Oskar would be totally down for anything with Ivy and Moira too – people-pleasing-manipulatable-bundle-of-friendliness that he is!

Joshua would know Bridgette from student council and with similar work ethics they'd definitely get along! Plus, given Joshua's friendliness and outgoing nature, he and Jasper probably know each other and are probably in good standing with each other! Not sure how annoyed Joshua would be with Jasper's incessant rambling, though.

Oskar would also likely be on good terms both of my kids, Bridgette being semi-popular and Jasper being a generally outgoing guy. The latter and Oskar also happen to like boys, and while a relationship might not happen one of them might've been romantically interested in the other at some point.

Heeeey! I have a bunch of kids, you have a bunch of kids, truly this was destiny.

I think Mia would probably have the closest relation with Joshua; given she's worrying so much about how little time she has to do school work, she'd probably really appreciate someone to tutor her on stuff she doesn't quite get/missed due to out of school activities. Astrid would simply tolerate him (although she might be interested in him given how easily he gets sick), Bryony probably wouldn't have too close a relationship to him and Morgan wouldn't really have anything to do with him.

I think Astrid and Hazel would probably butt heads over a lot of things, simply due to their personalities? They both seem like they'd want things to go their own ways, no compromises. Bryony and Hazel would probably have crossed paths too, if Bryony was bullied before/still is bullied.

Mia and Bryony would both definitely like Oskar! Mia because she's also a cheerleader and she has a similarly bubbly, upbeat personality, and Bryony because Oskar seems like someone nice and friendly who she could easily reach out and talk with, without fear of repercussions. If he's part of the popular crowd, then Morgan and Oskar would probably be acquaintances at least.

This took me way too long to reply to!

@leAloha: Yay! All of this sounds super great – Bridgette & Josh sounds wonderful, and as for Jasper and Josh, they sound like they’d make a great pairing too! Joshua would be totally fine with Jasper’s rambling; though he might end up absently curling his hair around his finger and tapping his foot without realising it! I love your ideas for Oskar too! I think he’d be interested in ballet (even though he wouldn’t be proficient in it at allllll) and would love talking about it with Bridgette! Also, #popularkids4LYF. Awww, Jasper and Oskar sounds so cute! I think they maybe could have come out to each other and might be confidants of sorts about it? Just an idea~ <3

@Pippin: Yayyyy, moar tutor-ees! Mia & Joshua as study buddies sounds wonderful, as does Astrid & Joshua too – maybe they’ve had a convo about it once or twice? Astrid and Hazel butting heads sounds wonderful! Hazel’s generally cool with other people taking the lead if she’s not interested in something all that much (though if did disagree with something I don’t think she’d hesitate to speak up about it)! But if it’s something she really cares about, like acting or track or an assignment, then heads will roll if they try and go with a path she dislikes XD Hazel protecting Bryony sounds wonderful as well! <3 YAS CHEERLEADER BUDDIES!!! Mia and Oskar sounds like such a fun pairing, oh my gosh! :3 And yas, Bryony and Oskar sounds wonderful too – Oskar bottles up and keeps hidden a lot more than he should already, so Bryony should have no fear of Oskar gossiping about her or anything like that! They sound like lovely buddies. And wooo, moar popular kids! That sounds great! He’d probably try and engage in conversation with Morgan whenever he saw him, peppy butterfly that he is!
