Hi! I want relationships! You probably want relationships too! Let’s have relationships together!

Jonathan Meyers has been shafted from foster family to foster family ever since he could remember, Jonathan has adopted a mindset where he feels he needs to push others away from him. He puts up the image of an asshole and a loner, an image that is a far cry from the personality that lies beneath, which is empathetic and nice to a fault. This is mostly because he doesn't want to build connections with people, knowing that he'll eventually be sent across the country to another home and knowing that it's near impossible for him to be able to say goodbye to his friends. However, due to the fact that this is his final year of school, he has started to open up and try to be friends with more people, something that is held back by muscle memory and his previous reputation. His main social avenues are through drama club and through vocal ensemble, which are both hobbies that he picked up because he needed them in a previous school and are ones that he has kept around. In addition to this, he likes being on internet forums, as the people there provide friends for him that won't be gone from his life if he moves. At school, he tries and does decently well, and he is also straight. Other hobbies include singing, helping out around town, and social justice.

Relationships


Looking for:

  • Friends! People he’s opened up to (mostly likely if they were the ones who challenged him to or if they affected him enough emotionally in some way or another) or I guess other students who are jerks or punk-ass people.
  • Enemies! Targets! People he tends to single out and do stuff to in order that he can act like a jerk!


Anna "Roxanne" Herbert spends her time outside of home trying to separate herself from it, having adopted the "Roxanne" nickname in order to do so. As the oldest child of a very rich and successful family, and having parents who expect nothing worse than the best from her because of this, she has attained stress issues, and has grown to resent and try to avoid her parents, as they frequently get angry at her whenever she goes against their image of her. As such, she tries to avoid her life at home as much as she can, and has adopted a persona to separate herself from the timid and scared girl she is at home. Personality wise, she is calm and reserved - normally choosing to play bass or paint by herself whenever she has free time at school - and is someone that refuses to sit down and let other people just boss her around, her stresses at home causing her to become fairly argumentative or fiery at school. She is straight, and near the top of her class in terms of grade (being scared of what will happen if she comes home with worse), and has joined a band mostly because she had a crush on the main singer. Hobbies for her include playing the bass, photography (to the point where she wants to see if she can be a professional one) playing the flute, playing the piano, busking, painting, and reading.

Relationships


Looking for:

  • Acquaintances! People who share the hobbies of art or music or photography that she can maybe occasionally talk to and stuff!
  • Enemies and/or people she’s pissed off with her perfectionist nature!


Ashley Tanner has gone from rags to not quite riches but still a fairly okay place to be economically. Born as the sixth child in his family, Ashley did not have a very good early life. From living on what the equivalent of Struggle Street is to dealing with a father who became diagnosed with dementia after his birth and from dealing with a drug addict older brother, life was not easy for him, and it taught him a couple of lessons, mainly about taking what you could get, treating others with respect, and treating other people with as much kindness as you possibly can. This changed when Ashley was about eight or nine, where his mother was able to win the lottery in what seemed to be a miracle, allowing the family to no longer really have to struggle that much, and allowing Ashley to get a proper school education. Although the lessons given to him in school don't affect him much more than a surface level, the lessons he learned when he was younger still had a hold in him, and he serves as a premier person in V7's party scene, being a happy host if people want to have a good time and when he's not the host taking part in the festivities himself. He is straight. He also does fairly okay in school, nothing great but he can get B's and C's without having to work too hard for them. Is considering becoming a tattoo artist when he grows up, and has had tattoos put onto his arms already, in a pattern forming an Asian Dragon. Other hobbies include drawing, running, baseball, and gymnastics.

Relationships


Looking for:
  • Nothing in particular, just general stuff! Friends, enemies, maybe current/former relationships?


Teresa Rojas is a hedonistic, promiscuous party girl who puts her own fun and enjoyment over the feelings and needs of the people around her. Orphaned at a young age due to a car accident that her parents were in, Teresa was given to her grandmother due to being the closest relative she had left. Although she does care for her grandmother, and did find living at her house fine at first, as she grew older she became bored with the place and its lack of things to do, and she sought to find anything that she could do to quench the boredom that she had. This typically manifested itself in her wanting to throw herself into social interactions, and led to her becoming part of the party scene at her school, a place that she has chosen not to leave since due to the hedonism that developed within her. To her, she feels somewhat empty when she's not having fun or is doing something that she enjoys, and feels that since her life is on a timer that she'd rather focus on what matters to her. This has also created a selfish outlook on life, as since she focuses on her own fun and fails to consider the feelings of others. As mentioned before, is sorta promiscuous. She finds it like a game to get someone who she finds semi-attractive to fall in love with her, and when she succeeds normally dates them for three or four months before moving onto the next person she likes. Is straight. Sorta is flunking class at the moment, due to how little she cares. She'll do work if you ask her too, but don't ask her to commit that much to her grades, or anything. Other hobbies include socialisation (ideally fairly popular, although not in the totally in crowd), dancing, watching Reality TV, listening to music, and playing video games.

Relationships


Looking for:

  • Friends! Teresa is more of a social nomad than anything but she has a couple people she’d dedicate time to hang out with! Be interesting, cool, and/or a PARTY PEOPLE and you’ll be right up Teresa’s alley!
  • Enemies! Teresa doesn’t really care all that much to actively hate people but maybe there would be people who - either through Teresa being an unmotivated shit when they needed her not to be or someone who she used to be in a relationship with - resent her?
  • Maybe even a current boy toy I guess?


Yuko Hayashibara is a sporty tomboy who's secretly a lot more girly than you'd think she'd be. Born as the oldest child in a set of triplets, Yuko became the brawn of the group, having an abundance of energy while growing up and a love for the playground resulting in her playing games a lot. This love for games gave way to a love for sports, and she eventually became really into both softball and soccer, being on the teams for both sports. Is pretty prideful and loud, and due to an interest in activism isn't willing to let her voice not be heard, advocating for the mingling of the different gender sports teams in her school and fighting for LGBT rights due to her sister being bisexual. As mentioned, is more girly than you'd think. She has a massive fear of spiders, is super into cute things, and crushes on boys easily, the three of which give her slight insecurities because she wants to project the image of a tough girl. Is straight, and doesn't do too well in school, being more average than anything. Other hobbies not mentioned in the writeup above are anti-bullying and jogging.

Relationships


Looking for:

  • Friends! People who do SPORTS (people who do her sports, to be particular), people who share the same PASSION as her, really if you think she fits your character she'd be your friend. She's pretty easy to gel with.
  • Enemies? I'm not looking for anything in particular and there's not anything that makes her easy to hate but maybe your character has it in for her? Iunno.
  • CRUSHES. FORMER BOYFRIENDS. Puberty was supposed to hit her hard so maybe having a couple exs (and maybe a current?) who she's still on good terms with would work for me.

Have at me!

Myles has a bit in common with both Spencer and Teresa and could have had some kind of relationship with either of them in the past if they're not just friends. He might also have some kind of current or former friendship with Ashley (former seems more likely but let me know what you think) given similar backgrounds.

I know we've discussed stuff with Andy and Roxanne getting on each other's nerves plus band rivalry. He's got some similar interests with Teresa too (video games and generally being in the social scene).

Dolly is in the choir and probably knows Jonathan through that.

Astor could get along with both Jonathan and Spencer for interests in social activism, and depending on what kind of dance Teresa is into they might have a common interest there.
"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."

I'd be interested in a Myles/Teresa former relationship! He'd likely be her boy toy - whether she asked him or whether he asked her out is up to you I guess - for a couple weeks/months before she decided to break it off with him. If Myles would be willing to they could still possibly be friends but I'm guessing that's another area up to you there.

And yeah, in regards to Ashley/Myles seems like they'd be friends. Ashley's pretty chill so there wouldn't be any reason why the friendship would end, I feel.

They probably would be aware of each other! I dunno if there's anything that would make their relationship anything more than that, though. All the others (Spencer/Myles (tho no relationship), Andy/Roxanne, Astor/Jonathan/Spencer, and Astor/Teresa - she does Tango) are fine to me.

Also, I added another kid. Her name's Yuko. Be friends with her!

I'm thinking that Bree and Yuko could be friends? Bree's meant to be reasonably athletic herself (though she's more of a water sports girl; think swimming and kayaking). They're also kinda similar in that they also have some girlish elements to them as well. Also, I don't know if Yuko finds any kind of aquatic life "cute" the same way as hamsters and such, but if she does... Bree's the type to share pictures, trivia, and such. : D

I might come back with more ideas later, when I'm not feeling as sicky, but your thoughts on that?

Forrest could probably be friends with Teresa because partyhaus Tennessee and Spencer because who doesn't want Drag Race friends? Viewing parties up in here.

I noticed Yuko likes to go jogging, Aliya could use a general running partner and friend who she can just hang out with.

Yeah, this works with me! Yuko wouldn't neccecerily find fish cute per sae but she appreciates the way they swim all the same! So yeah, they're pretty similar and they'd get on because of that.

YO I WAS JUST ABOUT TO CONTACT YOU ABOUT THAT. Forrest and Teresa look like they'll gel on super well due to parties and chillness and being exes with Myles and stuff like that. Maybe not best friends since Forrest already looks like she has some and Teresa doesn't do the whole "best friends" thing but yeah, they'd gel super well with each other.

Yeah, I'd be down for this too! Apparently Sansa's kid also would like Drag Race parties so maybe we could be like a threesome or something like that? (hi sansa I know I haven't gotten to you yet sorry about that)

Yeah these work with me. I don't think Teresa would be in the titty brigade though - breasts too smol - but yeah, they could party together.

hey i think ur kid might know yuka

Also, Yuka would probably be familiar with Jonathan since they'd both be in the theater club. I think she'd be rather put off by his outward abrasive manner, so she wouldn't try to be all super-close, but she'd still be willing to smile and wave whenever he passes by.

i dunno how would yuko know yuka, you're gonna need to elaborate on that

And yeah, that works with me. Jonathan would be confused as to why she smiles at him even though he tries/tried to act like a jerk to her, though.

I think Cleo likes Ashley's tattoo and generally respects the dude. Probably even flirts with him quite a bit though I dunno if anything's ever come of that?

Blaise on the other hand smells New Money on Ashley and is equally captivated and vindictive about it. Probably quite a few snide references to whether he ever wonders if among all those kids he was as much of an accident as his family's success was. I think they and Teresa would be fantastic hot messes at parties though and regularly run wild together to make horrible, horrible decisions. There's also an interesting thing here with Yuko that I don't think has come up before where Blaise has very little patience and tends to roll their eyes at straight allies because they feel they don't have skin the game, so to speak? I don't think there's a lot of outright hostility, but they scoff and are dismissive of Yuko's opinions and general presence in the LGBTQA+ community of the school.

Hel likes Roxanne. She reeeeally likes her. I could see them as jam buddies since they're both bassists and have their own bands. I think she's also friendly with Jonathan, though they're not too close, and probably sees Teresa as exactly the sort of person who keeps her from wanting to party.

Oh man, I think Jeremiah and Jonathan have hella shared trauma to bond over since Jeremiah is still basically getting shipped around until he removes himself from the system and feels like he's never had a real home. I could even see him getting involved with some volunteer work through their relationship since I'm playing with this notion of him as an amateur refurbisher/recycler.

Damian shares interests and communities with Jonathan, Spencer, and Yuko. I don't think any of them are like, bestest best buds, but I see them as being friendly to each other?

Yuki and Ned share a few interests with Spencer, so I could see them getting along. He also seems like an easy target for Zach.

Jonathan and Spencer could have crossed paths with Zach through social media, whether on Zach's main accounts or anonymous accounts. Ned could also try to be friendly towards Jonathan, but maybe hold off on doing his voices around him.

Of course Yuki and Yuko are sisters. Yuko could also be annoyed by Zach's antics.

Teresa seems like the kind of girl that could join in on Zach's pranks.

In all my pregame planning posts, I have stared from time to time at your wall of characters, and I have wondered to myself, "How am I going to tackle this?" For a while, this has meant "I won't," but now, I feel the time has come...

The time has come!

The social justice aspect of Jonathan is probably more than enough to turn Max off, if it means what he likely thinks it means. In addition, he likely recalls Jonathan's more reclusive and bitter self in decent enough clarity to feel like he knows what Jonathan's true character is like. Jerks staying off of other jerks turf, possibly. Violet probably attempted to be nice to him at some point, and it probably depends on how that was received how she feels about him. Lucas probably stays away from this guy.

Violet and Roxanne are both musicians, and I feel like they'd know each other from the music department if nothing else. Lucas is a photographer as well, so it's possible that if a chance encounter was in their favor they'd bond over their photography and art. Would Roxanne be on debate team, or by argumentative do you mean confrontational? If the latter, then Max doesn't get along with her at all. He probably sees her efforts to stir things up as destructive and contrary to the spirit of dialectic. If the former, however, his opinion might be a little more favorable, though likely not by much.

Ashley is most likely on the baseball team with Max! I feel like this would be camaraderie enough for the two to be on decent terms, though Max is likely to, on some level, resent their fortune coming from pure chance rather than from hard work. Lucas stays away from him, and Violet has neutral opinions on him, offering the same level of kindness as she does to everyone else.

I can see Lucas and Spencer being good friends, though! Still not best friend level, as you've mentioned that Spencer doesn't quite have anyone he can consider that close, but at the very least Lucas is supportive of who Spencer is and probably joins him in pursuits of writing and some level of activism. Violet is kind to him as well, and probably regards him as relatively harmless. For Max, the political acitivism and homosexuality, however, along with his tendency to be alone, probably has him pegged down as an archetypal "Beta Male" leading to Max straying far away from him.

Max is a decently attractive person, but if Teresa tried to put the moves on him, he'd more than likely decline in a somewhat scathing way. I see opportunity for a memory of some kind here, so I won't say too much, but this encounter if it happened probably would leave a bad taste in Max's mouth. It's probably off putting to Lucas as well, on a level of him not being able to live up to that standard or do anything with it. I'm guessing Teresa doesn't listen to the same kind of music as Violet, but video games might be something they bond over, though tenuously, as the aforementioned social butterfly nature probably would make Violet feel, on some level contrary to her usual self, like she was being used.

I'll PM you about Yuko at some point in the near future.
