With my first character accepted for V6, its time for my first ever planning thread!

Right now it's just Amanda, so here's a quick run down of her:

Amanda is an immigrant from Singapore who arrives in the States in 2011. Shes naturally outgoing and cheerful and tends to be passionate about her hobbies. Right now her interests are in cooking, video games and soccer, but she's dabbled a little in everything and often pretends to know more about them than she actually does. She's a little bit of a busybody and is likely to have involved herself in several committees, to the point of being unable to handle them all. She's used to things going her way, and gets rather confused or upset when things turn against her.

I'm looking for both friends and foes. Amanda's rather personable, but tends to hang with the other students athletes for the most part. I'd like to find a couple close friends for her, if that's possible. For foes, there's plenty of reason for people to be upset with her too, maybe they've who worked on stuff she's flaked out on or annoyed at her poking her nose into their affairs.

If Amanda hangs out with athletes outside of the soccer team, she probably knows Cristobal. He's quite shy, but friendly, and they'd probably be on good terms.

Depending on her clubs, she might also know Raina if she's ever been involved in robotics or the anime club. Less certain that they'd be friendly with each other, a pair of know-it-alls who might clash.

Junko's a track team person. Thing is, I'm not sure what her exact thoughts on Amanda would be thus far. What do you think?

Hey there! So Amanda's friendly and outgoing but flighty, a gamer, plays sports, so she shares some things in common with my Irene. Pickup games of soccer, maybe. Not especially close and probably don't directly meet one another too often since they're both all over the place but on good terms.

Other two of my kids I dunno, not much shared. Maybe Ben was one of her occasional romantic attempts if they were introduced through a friend and they went out on a few dates before deciding it was no good? Just throwing it out there, it's not exactly essential or the most justified.

I can totally see Amanda being on good terms with Cristobal, although she can be a little overbearing at times? I can see her disturbing 'Private Cris time' quite often given her attitude. If Cristobal is okay with that though, I think they could be good friends.

For Amanda, she doesn't mind spirited debates about things she enjoys and loves hearing about other's opinions. Nonetheless, I think Raina's attitude to this may be a bit grating for her and Amanda's opinion of her are likely to be somewhere between grudging acceptance and complete exasperation of the 'Oh my God, I can't believe this girl' type.

@ Deamon
Kimiko and Amanda would have several things in common and I can see their personalities meshing. I would think that they would know each other quite well, but I don't foresee Amanda having the patience picking up more than basic ASL. They would share like three languages though, if you count Hokkien. (Does she know Hokkien I'm totally assuming all Taiwanese people do right now). Definitely they'd be on good terms, but perhaps not quite close friends.

@Kami
Junko and Amanda are both a little flighty and are both outgoing and confident, with their shared interests, it's fairly possible that they'd be friends. However, Junko's attitude towards work is definitely something that Amanda would be very fond of and it could lead to some disagreement between them. Apart from that, íf they are good friends, I'd think that Amanda's natural curiosity would lead her to go along with most things Junko does, even if she may vocally object at the time.

@Cicada
Yeah, Irene sounds like the kind of person that Amanda would hang out with every so often. Perhaps they'd know each other from friends (from the soccer team maybe) but probably don't really hang out one on one?

As for Ben, I don't mind having them dated before. I'm thinking that it would likely have been an awkward affair, lasting no more than one, two dates before both sides realized that this just wasn't happening. They could still be friendly afterwards, but maybe things are still a little awkward between them from that?

If Amanda's spent time around Ben, she's probably known to Cris due to the team. Especially so since she knows Kimiko, who he also sorta knows. Despite being depressed and a bit of a downer, he's pretty chill, and good at listening to people, possible they'd get on but up to you. Possible he's tried his luck with her, either dating or just spending a night together, but up to you how all that went; between his success on the diamond and the fact he's a handsome guy, Cris is fairly popular with girls, but isn't much for settling into a serious relationship. Commitment issues of some kind or another.

Alright, both those things sound good. To clarify, Ben likely wouldn't feel so awkward around her after the fact but might get the sense that she's a bit uncomfortable in his presence and thus endeavor to generally leave her alone?

I think it's possible Danny and Amanda might get along well. Both are athletic, and Danny is similarly flighty and extroverted. (He might have flirted with her, but would have taken being rebuffed pretty well and not attempted it again after maybe a day of quietly sulking.) But sometimes he's lazy and he often drops things fast (and in some cases, claims to not be trying when he actually is to try and seem cool) so he might rub her the wrong way, too.

Clarice is also athletic and very un-lazy, and I don't think she'd have anything against Amanda, per se, but if she ever disagreed with Amanda's knowledge or whatever she'd probably argue to the death over it. So maybe friends, but with sort of a vitriolic edge. (Plus Clarice is good friends with Kimiko so if Amanda is friendly with Kimiko she's probably has at least associated a little with Clarice.)

Cristo would probably just deal if Amanda was hanging around when he was having quiet time, reasoning that she's nice and isn't doing it just to annoy him. I can see them being quite friendly.

I'd say Raina would have more or less the same opinion of Amanda, how well she'd deal would vary depending on how her day's going or her mood, etc. Not necessarily enemies, but grudging respect at best.

@The Burned Handler
They’d definitely know each other and perhaps talk every so often, but Cris' disposition may make it a little difficult for Amanda to really get along with him very well. As for dating, I think if she’d known him as a friend before he’s asked her out I don’t think it’s very likely. Most likely they’d end up as just casual friends.

@Cicada

That works for me! The awkwardness would more likely be a “How the hell do I react after that” kind of uncertainty rather than actively trying to keep away from him.

@Violent Medic
Hmm, I can see a friendship with Danny working out. I’d feel they could be friends after his failed attempt at hitting on her. His work ethic might be grating on her at times, but I don’t see it being a deal breaker especially given Amanda’s own penchant for dropping projects of her own.

I can definitely see Clarice and Amanda getting along fine given their personalities and interests, even if half the conversations between them are likely to turn to debates. Amanda would likely let the topic die a gentle death if she feels that she’s wrong, but if she has a strong opinion she’s going to dig in like hell. If Clarice enjoys friendly debates though, I’d say the two of them could be good friends.

Hi guys, bumping this thread for my newly accepted character Jordan. He's an all round media geek, but focuses on theater and often helps out in writing for school plays and other events like that. He doesn't try very hard to speak out and for the most part keeps his interests to himself. He's not quite a quick thinker but he's very careful and meticulous about the way he speaks and acts, so he doesn't really piss anyone off , but I guess he can come off as a bit snooty and judgemental at times.

Right now, I'm mainly looking for a few friends, most likely theater kids or perhaps some of the anime kids, though he might be a little embarassed to be too closely associated with the latter.

More relations for Amanda are also welcome!

Yeah, they'd probably know each other. I get the feeling Jordan wouldn't be particularly close to her, given her personality and a lack of shared interests, but he definitely wouldn't be adverse to hanging out with her once in a while.
