Hello everyone, I hope the topic title grabbed your attention enough for you to check out my character. (possibly characters later on) I've been putting off making a relationship thread for long enough and since I had the time, now is as good as ever. Feel free to post any relationships you could see with my character(s) and hopefully we'll be able to have lots of fun together!

Ryuunosuke Yoshida: Ryuu's name is written using the kanji for Dragon of Herald, hence the title, not really meaning anything but it's a nice bit of trivia. Ryuu aspires to be an actor and as such is heavily into things like dancing, music, and theater. He has a piano and a drum set, both of which he can play with moderate skill. Ryuu has been taking ballet and hip hop dance lessons for 3 years. Ryuu's family has a tradition where the first born will become a sushi chef, and while Ryuu is not the first born he still learned how to make sushi and enjoys cooking, typically Japanese cuisine. Ryuu was part of a swim team from 4th to the end of 7th grade and still swims recreationally quite a bit. Ryuu speaks both English and Japanese. Ryuu is a Junior.

Ryuu enjoys to be in the spotlight where he is able to properly showcase his skills. He will take leadership roles when offered to him, but will concede the position if he truly knows someone else would be better. Ryuu can't stand people he considers to be gossipy and backstabbing.

Ryuu's father works as an executive chef in a Las Vegas casino, because of this his family is what some would consider rich. His house is relatively large and has a pool. Ryuu tried to throw parties when he knows his parents will be away, usually Ryuu tries to not let the parties get out of hand, but it's not really up to him when certain people show up.

Appearance


For Ryuu I am looking for girlfriends, friends, close friends, theater mates, possible rock band members and party crashers. I guess also enemies if you see someone hating Ryuu, though he doesn't try to provoke others even if they are on his bad side, so your character would have to be the one to escalate it.

Helen Cruz would probably get along pretty well with Ryuu. Both are into theater, and seem to have good temperaments.

Isaac Brea would also know Ryuu, being a big partygoer, though the specifics of the relationship is less clear.

My character Aaron might be an acquaintance of Ryuu's, as they had both been on the swim team for years. They'd probably not be friends, due to clashing personalities and interests, but they might be acquaintances or something of the sort. Thoughts?

I'd say all of this would work out well! For Isaac I noticed you said he was a bit of a bully, Ryuu would have somewhat of a problem with this. He sounds like someone Ryuu wouldn't directly invite to one of his parties but might show up anyway. With Helen, any fellow theater lovers are welcome.

With Aaron, it would be fine for them to be distant acquaintances. Ryuu doesn't try to push people away but not much would keep them together as he has been off the swim team for several years. Their relationship might be as little as a passing 'hey' in the hallway every now and again.

EDIT: Oh yeah, any specifics either of you want to hash out, feel free to PM me

Ivy's a total gossip hound and general mean girl, but she'll always be into a good party. She'd probably be one of the people to turn up to Ryuu's place uninvited (prompting an eyeroll and an "ugh, why does she have to be here"). She's probably tried to befriend him- he's rich and pretty, after all- but after seeing his dislike she probably ignores him/treats him with general disdain.

Dante, on the other hand, is a cool chill dude who would probably befriend Ryuu ^^ Their activities don't really mesh, but I'm sure they've met through mutual friends!

Moira, meanwhile, would probably admire Ryuu from afar (being so confident on stage is pretty much her dream, after all!). If he ever tried to talk to her she'd probably blush and say something that's supposed to be insulting but actually just sounds awkward and then get away at top speed. ^^; Poor girl. She might crush on him from afar, in fact.

Ryuu would know Nathan through dance, and they'd probably get on well. Nathan might treat him more like a kid than most of the other dancers though, since Ryuu is younger and hasn't been involved as long.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."

Hahah yes, I feed on the essence of these relationships; keep them coming.

It's nice to have more party crashers with Ivy, but I do have bit of an idea. Ryuu likes to give people a few chances before he decides to wash his hands of them. If you want they could have gotten somewhere before Ryuu figured she wouldn't change. Dante seems like a cool dude that Ryuu would enjoy hanging out with. I wanted to have Ryuu examine his sexuality somewhat in Junior year so I figured to do that he could see how Dante flirts with all the girls and just jokingly flirt with him but always having a hint of sincerity to it. Moira can have a crush on Ryuu if you want, and Ryuu does try to be nice to everyone involved in theater productions, thanking others for their work, etc. A friendship would be possible if they managed to have longer conversations than an awkward insult and fleeing.

It'd be nice to get fellow dancers for Ryuu to talk to. Ryuu could always go to Nathan for more help since I notice he wants to be an instructor. Ryuu might be a bit resistant to being treated like a kid, but he'll likely get over it.

Anyway, PM me if you have any specific ideas, glad to get more social links for Ryuu.

I know we were talking earlier about how Margaret could be into the set building aspect of theater, being a lover of building and messing with things after all. I'm definitely going to go this way with her, and so she could potentially have a passing relationship with Ryuu. They would know each other and Margaret would like him, but she wouldn't be close enough with him to consider him a friend. More of a friendly acquaintance maybe?
Ah yes, the signature, the place where I make my individual mark upon every post I let see the light of day. Surely it should be something magnificent, something that truly captures my essence as the extraordinary person that I am?
Crap.

Nancy would totally go all weeaboo for Ryuu, whether or not he feels uncomfortable with that or not is up to you. And since Nancy is also into acting, Ryuu will be seeing her quite frequently.

All sounds good once again.

Since we've somewhat talked about a relationship between Margaret and Ryuu already what you've said sounds good. Friendly acquaintances are a-OK.

WIth Nancy, that is an interesting concept. I'm not entirely sure how Ryuu would react. Possibly he might be fine with it if it's not too intense, he could just brush it off as, "Oh that's just Nancy" or whatever. If it got too strong or even got to the point where it was offensive he might give her a few chances to simmer down, telling her what is wrong with how she is acting etc. before trying to avoid her.

Since I've ended my last two posts with this, and I plan on doing it for all later ones to let everyone know it still stands, PM me for specifics if you want.

So I've been wondering something ever since I saw this thread, and I have to ask: do you think he and Junko would know each other at all?

Kingman's predominantly white (like, 82%), so they're probably among the few Japanese people in town/at school (though other concepts could show up). They're both athletic, though in different ways. While Junko isn't that super-mega-jerkface, she can get pretty arrogant and temperamental.

I think he might know Emma as well, since they both play piano. There's a good possibility she might be involved in school orchestra stuff in some way, so if he's involved with that they might know each other from meetings. Emma's nicer than Junko as well.

Here is my concepts thread, which contains info on the two of them.

Ryuu and Bridgette may know each other through ballet, and are likely on good terms as a result. There doesn't seem to be anything about him that would put a strain on their relationship.

Danny does both ballet and hiphop too so he'd be at least acquaintanced. However, Ryuu might dislike Danny if he is aware of Danny's double-sided nature when it comes to being nice to people and then reluctantly agreeing if popular kids insult people behind their back (it's not quite full-on backstabbing but it's in the same ballpark.) He'd also turn up for any parties.

Clarice does backstage stuff for theater so they're probably also acquaintanced. And she tries making little films in her spare time so maybe Ryuu could help out with those, especially given his wide range of talents.

I've unfortunately let the pattern break, I've waited too long and now have 3 additional replies instead of 2, I'm sorry for I have failed you all. On to the relationships.

Junko and Ryuu could know each other, he doesn't really mind people being arrogant or whatever, it's just the way some people are and he is fine with it. Any of the activities she does like parkour or rollerblading, Ryuu might try them out with her every so often. He wouldn't be majorly into it but if she invited him along he wouldn't say no. Ryuu has looked into orchestra a few times but never really had time for it, and he was mostly taught piano by his mother. Ryuu would still probably get along with Emma though, in fact she could even be someone trying to convince Ryuu to join the orchestra.

Reading up on Bridgette I agree that nothing would put a strain on the relationship. They probably would get along pretty well. Ryuu enjoys seeing other ambitious people and since they are both into ballet they could get along.

Danny seems nice enough, though he and Ryuu might not be the best of friends. If Ryuu knew him well enough I'm sure he would understand Danny's behaviour, but it still wouldn't be something Ryuu would be fine with. It's doesn't seem like something that would drive a wedge between them though. With Clarice it seems like they'd get along well enough. Ryuu also looks for any opportunities to expand his acting experience so I'm sure he would help out with the films given the chance.

I am happy that you all want to have your creations intermingling with mine! Anything else anyone has to say feel free to PM me, I'll do my best to respond quickly. I might jump back into chat one of these days if anyone wants to discuss things there, though that is less likely.

I'm curious about why this guy wouldn't just live in Vegas, then. Anyhow, if he knows Clarice, Rod Kanuho is a close enough friend of hers he'd probably know him a bit too, especially since he's a pretty notable figure around the school anyway. He'd also know Kaylee Lytton from theatre and such, what I'll probably do is PM you what I have with her since there's not a finished writeup yet. Curtis Weldon might know him since Curtis is a member of the chorus, and maybe they'd get on since Curtis is rather interested in Japanese culture, though not in a weeabooish or creepy way. Also, Curtis could supply his parties if you like; let me know what if any drugs might be there, but also, I'm thinking Curtis has a sort of alcohol black market for people who can't get a fake ID or don't want to deal with the hassle and risk of getting caught - he has people who are of age buy the stuff, then sells it to people throwing parties or whatever at a marked up rate that allows him to pay the buyers and make a profit.
