Emily has one of the longer profiles from V5 that goes through a fair number of things. Her inferiority complex in regards to her older sister who her parents prefer and constantly compare her to, or that she's a lesbian desperate not to let the fact come out in any way. Even going on dates with boys to prove she wasn't lesbian and severing ties with a girl friend who wanted to be more than friends. Her profile goes into heavy details on this and it is a good foundation for a character, but it doesn't come up a lot. As I read her, only in her second thread did she mention it at all. Otherwise she's an athletic girl with an interest for listening to and performing music, and a hidden fondness for roleplaying games.

In pregame she doesn't get to do much, she's kind of periphery in her first thread, in and out in two posts. She does more in her second thread, getting into a shouting match with Alex King after Alex gets mad on her and Mallory because of their soccer game. This is the thread that goes into stuff that was in her profile (familial issues) if only briefly and is the more interesting out of the two.

Reading Emily, it comes to me that her handler must be british because for some reason Emily tends to say some british isms like arse or yer despite being american. Although it's mainly in regards to her pregame, it's gone by the time V5 starts proper.

Writing wise it's rather mediocre. In particular her dialogue tends to lack punctuation, and words being capped after commas. Outside of it, it's written better. Though she has a tendency to repeat stuff internally, particualrly when V5 starts proper.

Emily doesn't really get the chance to do much, her first thread is a one shot that's mainly to establish her goal of make an alliance and have protection around her. And take advantage of the area around her (A playground) which is always neat to see someone have their character do. after this she moves to a thread already in progress at the beach, featuring Matthew Young and Rutherford Roger Jr. At first she ignores them to lie down at the beach which is rather odd considering her demeanour up to this point and it doesn't help that right afterwards she decides to introduce herself to them under the assumption no one would play that early.

And this is her last post. Due to inactivity, the two boys leave the thread and Emily behind. A while later staff scoops her up and she leaves as well.

Controlled by staff. Emily is now partnered with Harry Hanley as they stake out the woods for Max Sawyer. The post is mostly from Harry's POV so Emily doesn't get much to say or do. It isn't said when or how they teamed up and we learn more about harry's cahracter and what he's done than her. It doesn't that out of all the characters in the thread, she's very quickly taken out by Max when they attempt to suprise him.

Emily Rose is a farily short read. Clocking in at about five threads if one counts pregame. If not she's at three and she goes inactive in her second a few posts in and is inactive killed her third. Because of this there's not much to her unfortunatly so I can't really recommend her. Shame really as there is a foundation for a good character here, she has an extensive profile that goes in depth to her hobbies and her issues and I think if they were properly tapped she could have done much more.

Another please.
