I need friends. Actually no, I need broken people to have broken relationships with my broken kids.

Hi! so my guy Gaelan Meloy like Hyacinth is also an Instagram model who spends the majority of the day making sure he looks as beautiful as possible so I'm thinking we could do something with that - maybe he and Hyacinth dated for a hot minute or maybe they hate each other's guts? Maybe the former happened and then the latter happened?

As for Piet, if he hit on Gaelan, Gaelan would be annoyed but put on a facade of "flattered but not my thing dude, you do you though". He might know Kayden Brockman, however, since he's also gay (to the point of what he calls "intrusively homosexual") and also similarly shredded so it's possible they could have been FWBs at one point?

As for Gaelan and Hyacinth I'd even propose to have them start pregame dating and then thread it out. Would at least sound like fun to me!

Kayden and Piet sounds good too. Could see an amiable relationship going with the occasional longing for physical comfort when things get lonely.

I think both Bree and Roxie would despise Hyacinth. Both are actually pretty body positive in their own way.

In Roxie's case, she has a physical disability, and while she's self-confident about it, she would find Hyacinth's attitude towards "non-traditional" body types aggravating. I don't know if Hyacinth is the type to directly throw ableism into the mix by making fun of her disability or something, but even then, Roxie would still get peeved by her. Roxie dislikes bullies and injustice, so she might have butted heads with her about her viewpoints. Also, she's a goth, which may play a role in why she dislikes Hyacinth, depending on her thoughts on that subculture.

In Bree's case, they're actually not that different interests-wise, and I think they'd be friends if it weren't for her viewpoints. However, I've considered that Bree may have a thicker, curvier body type; she's athletic, but she definitely has some meat on her bones. Bree's pretty confident about it as well, but if Hyacinth says something that implies that people with her body type are unattractive... well, she wouldn't let it sit. It's entirely possible that they were on good terms in the past, but Hyacinth did something to piss her off.

Thoughts on this?

Myles and Hyacinth could be friends, though they're probably more likely to be frenemies. I doubt they'd do much to offend each other's aesthetics but Myles is a little shit and has interests that can classify as "weird" to his more popular crowd acquaintances. He and Piet could have had a thing at some point, though Myles's reputation for being a gossip probably didn't go well with Piet's suspicion of others.

Andy's a good-looking athletic dude but is bad with girls and sometimes acts oddly to cope with his OCD so he and Hyacinth could have had a thing that ended badly or just never got off the ground. He's probably aware of Piet as a fellow athlete but not into the touching and/or getting hit on.

Dolly probably hates Hyacinth despite their shared interest in yoga because Dolly subscribes to non-mainstream aesthetics and has weird hobbies. She and Piet are probably only vaguely aware of each other.

I don't see Astor having much to do with either of them on good terms.

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."

@Kami

Hyacinth's views on this is actually a lot like 'if people know their place, all is fine'. As such, she is amiable to people trying to be beautiful, even if they don't fit traditional images as long as they 'acknowledge' that they do their best 'despite their flaws, and can never be beautiful because of them'.

If they don't, and accept themselves as beautiful as they are... well, then she becomes a bitch. So yes, the two of your kids will likely clash with Hyacinth. She for her part will see them as misguided, and petty. As to Bree in particular, a former friendship sounds like a good idea so I approve that.

@Zee

Myles/Hyacinth: Yes, that sounds good. I can see them being on semi-friendly terms, if even they both think the other is a bit of an odd case.

Myles/Piet: Agreed. I am always a sucker for former flings.

Andy/Hyacinth: Well, given Hyacinth's nature - she would have likely bailed as soon as he got too weird, so to say. Along the lines of "you are difficult. I am gonna play with my cats then."

Dolly/Hyacinth: Seems fine to me, don't think Hyacinth would take much note of Dolly though.

Gaelan unfortunately already has a girlfriend as of the start of pregame, but I'd be happy to do some Memories stuff with them!

Violet doesn't like being touched, so she probably stays the hell away from Piet. Max sees him as a bit effeminate (like, duh) in a negative way, and is secretly disappointed that a good athlete like him has fallen into the ways of the liberal left. Max doesn't like Hyacinth either; generally, he likes women who are a bit more modest, whatever that means. Her stance against body positivism makes sense to Max, though, which earns her a few points in his book, as well as the fact that she takes care of her body and cares about her fitness. Overall a little bit conflicted.

That said, they all kinda like Cedric. He's an upstanding guy, y'know?



~~~~~ Sadly CBP looked at a SOTF character. It was so sad... such a sad character... like him... he only waned a normal life... was that too much to ask? was it?

SOON: V7

Seems good to me! Hyacinth is going to have very little conflicted feelings about Max, though. She is going to see him as an arrogant jerk who's just jealous of her with that attitude.

That aside, Piet's feeling will be fairly clear too, as can be seen on the little fluff blurb I added already.

Hey Riki, got some ideas here.

Cedric and Aliya would probably be friends through wrestling as they'd be on the team together, maybe a little dunno your choice.

Depending on how active in the LGBTQ scene Piet is Forrest would probably know him.

Bret would probably know Hyacinth since I imagine she rolls in the popular crowd like he does? Plus he's fairly all-american looking. Hyacinth probably wouldn't like Forrest too much because...well you've probably seen her appearance. Forrest is also just kinda weird if that helps.

Cedric/Aliya: Sounds fitting to me! One thing though. For one, Cedric likely is going to have a crush on her, or something to that nature. Dunno how that'd develop and express itself in the game itself, however.

Piet/Forrest: Oh, I can imagine Piet being a regular at the functions Forrest is hosting. I am yet unsure how involved he will be in the scene, but at least he'll be present at her house parties.

Hyacinth/Bret: Yea, I can see them hanging around. Hyacinth will be fairly apathetic to him, though.

Hyacinth/Forrest: Forrest is indeed weird, probably going to weird Hyacinth out, but presumably Hyacinth will mostly react with open pity towards Forrest.

Chloe thinks Hyacinth's standards are unreasonable, and therefore nonsense. She'll say so if Hyacinth ever looks down at her for being dumpy, but otherwise I don't see them interacting much.

Joey is probably the opposite of what Cyacinth find attractive. He also has a bit of an ego and is aware of his public image, so if Hyacinth ever goes "What an ugly little man.", either explicitly or implicitly, he might hit on her just to embarrass her. That could be amusing.

As for Keith, for him, if you ain't white, you ain't right, so he'd be dismissive and calous towards Cedric if he ever had to interact with him.
V6 Character - Benjamin "Squirrel" Lichter [ ~ / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / > ] - You'll find him in the clouds.
Future Characters:
Chloe Bruges - You'll find her doing math.
Joseph "Joey" Quintero - You'll find him writing speaches.
Keith Rogers - You'll find him out with his gang.

In the unlikely event you want to use my characters...

She won't look down on Chloe, actually! Unless Chloe says something to effect of "your standards are unrealistic" directly in Hyacinth's face, then maybe yes.

Again, Hyacinth is the kind of person who considers herself too important to engage in such petty squabbles. Of course, if the topic of beauty is ever brought up between them she'll start being caustic. With all the consequences.
