Warning : I am, as usual, doing stupid and ill-advised concepts so there may be some offensive triggers in the following profiles. Viewer discretion is advised. Sending Cicada death threats is also advised.

Warning : Profiles are mostly WIP, with glaring errors and huge holes in delivery and content. I recommend ignoring them for the most part.


Color Chart



For any character please feel free to ask for more details if you need them to make decisions!

Demetri Futscher - 'Too scared to run, I'm too scared to stay.'
(Profile)

Demetri is a quiet, hard-working, slightly underdeveloped dude; a typical lower middle class hometown boy who plays for the school's varsity soccer team and does work for Yearbook club, so he can often be found at school and club events taking photos. His sense of humor is rather offensive and he's stubbornly unapologetic and argumentative about being politically incorrect.

Demetri's submissive, meek, polite demeanor belays that he's quite twisted up on the inside. Girls get the sense that he's awkward: he rarely seems to be able to talk and sometimes stares. Inside his head he obsesses over girls he barely knows, he beats himself up for the littlest things and is increasingly hostile towards women for his own personal shortcomings and failures. He has developed an inroads into alt-right culture, though for the most part he does not broadcast his political beliefs aloud, they are only indirectly apparent through the worse of the company he keeps and the severity of his humor, along with rumors that circulate around with people in the know.

Extra Details

Some Possible Relationships/Ideas -
- Plenty of dude friends, since Demetri is mostly cool and kind of funny (to those not liable to be offended), people he plays cards with, plays pick up games of soccer and basketball and whatever with.
- Maybe some gal friends who tolerate him due to being kinder or more forgiving or being out of the loop enough to miss out on the clues that Demetri is a weirdo creepy alt-right type.
- People he would have had reason to interact with through his Yearbook Club activities. Club leaders and athletes and the like. These people are likely to be exposed to his awkward.
- His closer knit circle of offensive douchebags with woman-hating and [V7 Trump surrogate] supporting tendencies, etc.
- Maybe he owes some people some cash over gambling that he hasn't paid up yet?
- Fellow punk/scene music fans that went with him to a Warped Tour or something.
- Girls he's into. He will very likely not interact with them at all but I'd like permissions to have them awkwardly invade his thoughts or something.
- Other ideas, hate him, love him, kill him on island, etc.

Demetri's Relationships




Beryl Mahelona - 'Thoughts from unfamiliar, outside the picture, life is strange in some familiar way.'
(Profile)

Beryl's a whimsical spirit, outwardly quirky in a very relaxed and compassionate manner. She loves to listen and then to ramble, and when she does speak what comes out can be rather roundabout or even thoroughly irrelevant, at her worst she speaks like on a drug trip of some sort. She's very open minded and willing to listen to anyone's interests or be their shoulder to cry on. She's a bit disengaged however, typically keeping people at some awkward distance, and has few non-academic extracurricular engagements, she'll often quietly vanish into the ether when classes are done, hard to find unless you are one of her closest friends.

Beryl suffers from rather severe narcolepsy, and most people in the school have seen at least one of her muscle weakness or sleep attacks occur. It's been happening since winter of the classes' Freshman year, around the time Beryl happened to quit her position as a promising small forward on the Hunter's Jr. Varsity Girl's Basketball team. Beryl nowadays is in advanced Science and Math classes and is enthused to talk to the scientifically literate, along with literally anyone else who happens to walk up to her. Politically she drastically skews liberal in casual conversation, but she has quite the open mind and most anyone can talk constructively with her... if you ignore the innumerable quirks and dubiously justified points.

Extra Details

Some Possible Relationships/Ideas -
- Beryl likes listening to pretty much everyone and swapping ideas and inspirations. She doesn't have many close friends but she's passing acquaintances with as many people as she can get her hands on. Politics doesn't dissuade her and she has a strong open mind for many things, so well. Almost anyone is open to know her and speak with her, however they might respond to her behavior.
- People who abuse her very passive and submissive nature to whatever extent, perhaps to drag her along into doing things for their benefit.
- Meet her at the animal shelters if your character is an animal lover?
- She also goes to Yoga classes outside of school, so anyone who hangs out with her there.
- Crushes either way? She's in a relationship- a poly relationship, no less- but this is a setting of teenagers.
- She's a furry/otherkin and has interests in a variety of non-monotheist spiritual expressions including shamanism and the occult, so those types of folk might also chill with her!
- I'm in the market for a friend that named her second living dog, an adorable and energetic Pitbull Beagle.
- Other ideas that are weird and cool and stuff.

Beryl's Relationships




Ramsey Cortez - 'Tell me I'm a monument to more than bone and tissue.'
(Profile)

Ramsey's a cool sort, a bit of a gossip but very much not a malicious one, more interested in talking relationships and fashion trends and tips. The occasional accusation comes out against him concerning his sexuality, but he mostly wards off unwanted attention to his private life by being quite cool in general: he's an oft shirtless and definitely handsome guy who's an honest family man helping out his younger sisters and older sister Angie Cortez. He likes rap, is on the basketball Varsity team, and infrequently attends parties, often enjoying a unique position of being a confidante to girls guys would have no chance of getting close to intimate with. While he's not the smartest or most ambitious, he seems to have a life path on lock.

However his coming to terms with being gay, despite and perhaps because of having had a steady girlfriend for at least a year, has caused him some quiet distress as much as he stays in the closet and stays tight lipped about his problems. Due to his parent's homophobia he's resolved to not talk about it, not act on it, and try to reconcile his deep spiritual, Catholic faith. The efforts prove somewhat difficult, and he's found himself becoming more resentful towards the world as of late.

Extra Details

Some Possible Relationships/Ideas -
- He needs himself a close-knit group of girls he can really get down and gossip with, where he's included in their girltime judgement free, where his penchants for fashion, clothes and hair can all come to bear.
- A few boy crushes, one sided for sure.
- He's definitely chilling with the basketball teammates, and he's also decent about showing the girl's team support and being at games. He's on the bench more often than not, not always at practice, and doesn't have the best equipment, so he might sometimes get shittalked behind his back.
- He can occasionally offer gossip to others even if they're not immediately in his circle. Generally party goers work in this regard.
- Fellow Roman Catholics who go to his Church!

Max would enjoy hanging around Demetri for a few reasons. Firstly, they have somewhat similar political views on quite a few things. Secondly, they're both athletes, and have that to bond over (just me or do we have a lot of somewhat jerky athletes this time around?). But the self-loathing? Probably has to go. Max doesn't value people that don't carry themselves well, or that don't have a lot of conviction in their ideals. At some point, Max would start to realize that most of Demetri's reactionary ideals are somewhat, well, reactionary. If he had said the right things at some key points, he'd have the views of the crowd. In Max's eyes, Demetri just kind of takes on whatever he feels like rather than whatever is just or correct.

Lucas and Violet both think this guy is a creep.

Meka would hate this guy. Meka would probably not his alt-right bigotry and call him out for it. That may put them at odds, but Meka would see him as a symbol of greater issues in their community and probably create a lot of art because of how much of a douche Demetri is.

Tanisha would probably also dislike Demetri immensely and assume he's racist on top of everything else.

Alison has probably struck up friendly conversation with him on at least one occasion, likely coming across each other during school events. This doesn't mean she necessarily likes him - although as a Republican and possible [V7 Trump surrogate] voter herself she might be a little more tolerant of his views than others. I'm not sure if she'd think he's a weirdo or just nothing special, but either way, she never speaks about it and remains polite. Demetri can definitely think weird thoughts about her if he wants.

He's probably also talked to Nate, since he's heavily involved in the school's art club and may be one of the club leaders. Nate was probably polite during their first interaction, but Demetri's sense of humor likely rubbed him the wrong way and made him avoid him at all costs. Not sure what Demetri would think of this quiet, semi-nerdy kid, but I doubt it's anything positive.

Isra would be similarly met at the school newspaper, although since Demetri is alt-right I doubt he thinks highly of her. She probably thinks he's a dick anyway.

I USE THIS POST TO STORE MY PLANNER PART 2 BECAUSE IT'S TOO HUGE

Joanne Coleman - 'The quiet scares me cause it screams the truth.'
(Profile)

Joanne Coleman comes off in a very straightforward manner. She's a loud, loyal, and brash girl with strongly progressive opinions who will happily argue with anyone she thinks is a piece of shit, which is a lot of people as she's fairly easy to offend and annoy. Those who piss her off earn places on her shit list for life, she is prone to holding grudges and does not forgive or forget easily. If you're on her good side she's a shameless advocate of you, and shares with you hobbies like her love of video games, travelling to find good eats, partying, dancing, karaoke, and gossip. She's a very happy and in the moment sort, though she rarely shows intellectual consistency, parroting ad hominem attacks and leftist memes as her main form of ammunition.

What few people in the school are privy to except her closest and most of trusted friends is that she's actually quite intelligent, well read, a good essayist maintaining a strong 4.0+ GPA and looking at good scholarship opportunities, or at least she was until the beginning of her Senior year when her grades begun to slip. What even these people don't know is that she's quite depressed, feeling totally lost over the state of the modern world and of her family, which is being actively torn apart by a brutal divorce of her parents that leaves her and her siblings confused as to who they are loyal to. She absolutely refuses to let this aspect of her public in anyway, and she wears her cheer and growing inroads into pain medications and alcohol as a shield to save her friends from the truth.

Extra Details

Some Possible Relationships/Ideas -
- Her closest friends are part of the Titty Brigade with Laurel's Tanisha Abbey. These girls inspired Joanne and helped her out in middle school when she'd lost confidence in her looks and intellect. Join them! They're a fun and badass lot of gals.
- In general she's well known in the party scene and she's quite friendly and chatty as long as you're not an asshole with right-leanings. Or well, an asshole in general, but she gives people being loud about more progressive and socially liberal values more of a pass.
- She curates a strong Tumblr and Twitter presence, so check her out there if your kid's got that social media ish.
- She and her mother eat out often, if your family owns or patronizes particular restaurants she might be a familiar face?
- Babysitters for the two young boys welcome!
- She's cool with hanging out with the more nerd kids to play some video games, indeed she's kind of not particularly good at them so feel free to show her up! She definitely doesn't mind.
- She's a fixture in the rumor mill/grape vine, so you might know Joanne more exclusively via this alley.
- Joanne has strong LGBT sympathies but is ultimately fairly straight herself. I doubt she's had relationships but a few crushes either way, past or present, are welcome.
- The occasional friend who's more concerned about Joanne's recent drop in grades and energy, and her more reckless behavior at parties. A few of these are cool but I'll be particular about this. Nobody and nobody should know the whole truth, or even come close, that's not what I'm in the market for.

Joanne's Relationships




Charelle Chernyshyova - 'Stop, thinking too much about it. Love's gonna heal us, again and again.'
(Profile)

Charelle is a girl of few words, and many memes. The girl radiates calm and irreverent nonchalance, with about average academic track and poor reliability when it comes to academic performance and especially group work. The only 'real work' that seems to excite her is animal shelter volunteering, and doing mixing in her student DJ Collective ZOOTOPIA. Besides this she mostly seems to be around the school to socialize, her version of 'socializing' being hanging out with anyone who will have her while not actually saying much unless she has an admittedly cool or silly but probably fairly endearing punchline to throw on out there. Despite being socially fluid and listening to and overhearing a lot of things she does not gossip, out of simple lack of interest. She has a strong sense for people naturally, though she's very passive about actually using her natural ability to feel other people out.

Charelle is fairly progressive but she's not much of a dedicated fighter, and she hangs out with people across the spectrum, her genial nature allowing her to cross some borders she might not otherwise have. She's a prolific casual dater and is sexually active. She can be found at plenty of parties, and despite being underage and sober she also is often found at local clubs, especially gay bars and the like, where she has backstage ties due to her general ability to get into and thrive in places where she shouldn't be allowed.

Extra Details

Some Possible Relationships/Ideas -
- People who she hangs out at the skate park with! She's not so good though.
- She definitely has a dedicated crowd she hangs out with when she wants to play video games, especially since she needs a group to be able to poach League players from for meme games. She's not so good, note.
- ZOOTOPIA might have a few fans? Though they'd probably be more following Mikki and maybe Forrest, Charelle could also have her own uniquely charismatic pull.
- She's fairly attractive and easy to get along with, so I imagine she's had her share of dates and casual sexual partners post sophomore year or so. A couple of these would be fine, and she's essentially pansexual so all comers welcome! Long term relationships would really not be a thing, and anyone who tries will get awkward-ed to death on it.
- People who have started going to clubs in the area would know her. If they’re underage Charelle is sometimes willing to smuggle them in or vouch for them
- Charelle’s a pretty bad group member in classes, one of those ‘doesn’t do the work types’, so she might get some people’s shit over that.
- In general I’d classify her as fairly ‘popular’ and ‘in’, knowing her does come with it’s perks and she’s well followed on social media.

Charelle’s Relationships




Gyu-ri Christensen - ’If you wanna find a head that fits your shoulder, you're gonna have to go to the dance.'
(Profile)

Gyu-ri is part of the it crowd in some regard, but is also very much not. She doesn't seem to like people much, and she can be found either being quiet or being a bit mean-spirited in a careless way, her harshness tends to be dismissive and negative. Even people who she likes and vice versa find she can be somewhat negative and down, on herself and others. She struggles with initiative, despite a number of interests and talents she tends to lose herself in other's designs. She's naturally a helpful soul, quite reliable in spite of herself, but don't expect her to smile while she's slaving on someone else's behalf.

She is mostly present in the school's chess club and choir club, a solid player in the former and a stand out talent in the later. She purposely seems to avoid the spotlight, however, even in her regular classes she seems to be hesitant to participate. Her academic track is about average. She can be found at the occasional party, dragged along by the folks she affiliates with like Ivy Langley, but for the most part it can be somewhat hard to find her around the school. When you do find her she can be hard to talk to. It's easiest to win her attention by playing cards with her, but don't even suggest that any money change hands.

Extra Details

Some Possible Relationships/Ideas -
- The common prevailing opinion barring specific opinions due to direct interaction is 'quiet', 'gossip', and 'somehow against all odds Ivy Langely's friend'. This would be a default we don't necessarily need to discuss, along with 'they don't know/remember one another'.
- Fellows in chess and choir, where she's somewhat more sociable than she usually is. Not by much. She's still less likely to talk and can be uncomfortably mute in conversation.
- Her few friends are those who knew her when she was younger and stuck with her through the upheavals of her life, or perhaps those who just generally have more tolerance and patience for Gyu-ri’s constant irritation.
- She’s also transiently in and out of the ranks of those in George Hunter that gamble, though she herself doesn’t and she just plays for fun.
- She’s friendly towards those who Ji-Hyun is friendly with… sort of.
- She still hangs out with the assorted elements of the popular crowd, or those who haven't jettisoned her for being baggage. She does have some fashion chops even if she can't afford shit, and she's an excellent gossip because she knows how to shut up and keep her ears open.
- People she's helped, or has little general interaction with save as a source of gossip. She's approachable enough for working relationships like this.

Kelly's also on the Yearbook club, so she would know Demetri through that, but I'd think she'd kinda stay away from him just because she thinks he's kinda creepy, but not entirely because he's like kinda racist, but also because she's afraid that he's gonna eventually get people in trouble, and Kelly, being the suck-up she is, would like to steer really far away from that. On the other hand, Keisha would probably argue with him more than a couple times, and it wouldn't be surprising if she's made up quite a few dubious rumors about him.

Beryl Mahelona is up! Didn't even ragequit this time around.



@ Malloon: Alright! So Demetri would think Joey's decently cool if Joey goes out of his way to occasionally keep acquaintance, and they might occasionally talk shop at school events or the like. He'd be not be so cool with Keith's gang, that particular brand of right wing politics is a bit too far past his comfort zone, like he'd be willing to hang with Keith especially since Max is also a friend but if Keith pushes him away it's dipset city. Let's say he and Chloe are not familiar, just for simplicity's sake.

And while I have your attention, thoughts on Beryl? I could see with Chloe that there might be an interesting duality to the relationship, Chloe would respect Beryl's raw intellect and prowess in math and might pick her brains some but she'd find Beryl can be a bit too whimsical, distracted, and nonsense for her to put up with all the time. Also Keith would obviously not be so cool with Beryl but might be rather taken aback if they ever randomly ended up speaking and she ended up being oddly engaged into the discussion to the point that she's making amicable points about his thoughts on the political structure of America until he's like 'wait wtf why am i talking about this shit to her' and screws off.

@ Somersault: We have already discussed! But Be3Al2(SiO3)6 tho.

Beryl's Tumblr got the hellacious cute animal pics, usually related to her shelter work. She and Kelly might be social media friends especially because Beryl likes dat art so she'd follow Kelly's Yearbook exploits and so on.

Demetri and Joey's relationship I'd leave exactly like that. Keith would only push him away if he knew about his neuroses regarding girls and such (rather hypocritical, seeing as he's not exactly well adjusted even by his own standards, but there you go), but otherwise he'd be fine talking with him, like with Max. Even if Demetri and Max are only halfway, which he'd feel makes them a bit "weak", he'd find he'd owe it to his cause to keep them around. Like with Max, though, recruitment efforts would probably be limited to an open invitation to "hang with his gang". I'm fine with Chloe and Demetri not knowing each other.

Regarding Beryl, I think you've got her and Chloe's relationship spot on. I think Chloe would roll her eyes at that stuff behind Beryl's back at most, though, since her usual tactic to avoid "nonsense" is to avoid the person spreading it, which wouldn't be an option here, and she's too much of a genuinely nice person to do anything she'd think would make Beryl feel bad (though she might not-so-subtly suggest alternatives if she thinks a certain "nonsense" based decision of Beryl's has a chance of hurting her).

I find it difficult to imagine a situation where Keith is polite enough to Beryl to let a conversation happen (seeing as she has an islander complexion - perhaps in a class environment), but if it did, I think you have his reaction exactly.

Scott holds a lot of similar political beliefs to Demetri, as well as a similar attitude towards women. He'd probably see him as a type of kindred spirit, one of the only people at the school who really understands how the world works.

Oliver gambles quite often, so if you're looking for someone for Demetri to owe money to, he's open.

arrives super late to the party with starbucks

Demetri: Ivy isn't particularly kind, or forgiving, or out of the loop, but she certainly wouldn't dislike Demetri for his proclivities. I don't think they really have a huge amount of overlap socially, but she'd probs tolerate him at least. (she Is friends w/ Max Rudolph so maybe they know each other through him?) (also she is like primo unwanted-crush-bait)

Other than that: Ian's a football guy and hangs out w/ the general athlete group Demetri already chills with, so they presumably know each other. Ian is probably p uncomfortable w/ Demetri but he's too passive to say anything and would willingly hang out with him for Sports Reasons. Axel hates him by default and because him and Andy Silverman have issues. I don't think him and Nia or Dante have any real overlap; he might have opinions on them but I doubt they notice him.

Beryl: Whoa I have a bunch of stuff here. Firstly Dante has definitely hit on her at some point but once they got past that (or hey maybe she likes him I dunno) they could totally be friends? He's a huge animal lover and volunteers at the local shelter, plus he's like the most chill dude on the planet and her weirdness would just kinda bounce off of him. I dunno I think they'd make cute friends.

Ivy obviously thinks she's a weirdo but she's also probably grudgingly respectful of her musical talents. Nia would absolutely find her fascinating and would love to be friends with her if their paths crossed in class or something? Axel's a music guy and a singer in one of the school's other bands, so they'd probably know each other at least in passing (I feel like Axel's more competitive than cooperative when it comes to the George Hunter music scene, though :P) I can imagine Ian panicking over her collapsing in a hallway and helping her, that seems like him.

if you've got anything else between my kids and yours let me know! :D

Alright, administrative stuff! I've overhauled my relationship tracking methodology since the quotes methodology seemed a bit messy. I have also added Gyu-ri Christensen, Joanne Coleman, and Charelle Chernyshyova to my over-large roster as new people that could die come V7 Proper, which I'm very thrilled about! Only one character is currently missing from my intended pregame roster, Ramsey Cortez, the brother of Angie Cortez (Lore) and ex-boyfriend of Emily Sharpe (Randomness). He'll probably be fleshed out and put up in a month or two.

But for now, hashing out relationships and all that swag is very much welcome! All characters up are still possibly slated for significant overhaul dependent on the ebb and flow of my self-hatred, but their core traits and such are set in stone enough to where I think they're all good to go for relationship building.

----

Alright, so for Fenris and his coffee:

Demetri-Ivy makes sense as you've laid it out, they might be able to hang out occasionally with Max as a commonality and especially if Ivy can tolerate his shitty quips. I actually think, however, that Ivy doesn't fit into Demetri's tastes in women! Feel free to argue this but if anything Demetri would be off-put by her in that particular category. He'd appreciate that he can orbit someone so massively well known and connected without getting kicked in the ass, and he does have a thing for colored hair I suppose, but he'd also think she was massively shallow and 'an example of whats wrong with the modern American woman'.
Note for Demetri and Ian, they share a church probably. And Axel would definitely land low on Demetri's shit list. Just for Ed Sheeran alone tbh. If they met at a party or something I could foresee Demetri preemptively backing off because of Axel's reputed temper, as a side note. Dude's a little coward and a half.

Beryl probably would have flirted back a bit then shot him down due to a personal lack of interest? Given that they're both massively adorable human beings I can easily see the transition as you imagine it! BFFsies for sure. BTW, do you want Dante to have had naming rights to one of Beryl's dogs?
I think Beryl would love Ivy's changing fashions ("though they are a bit monotone and predictable? that might be part of the meta statement though!" :0) and consider her a decent friend like literally everyone else in existence if they talk on any sort of decent terms occasionally.
I think for Beryl and Nia it'd be fun if they have extended doodle rambles at each other, that definitely sounds like it'd be up Beryl's alley. They just seem like the sort who could go on for hours together with their mutual loves of interesting information and their mutual open mindedness. We could say they met over a tarot read even, Beryl would have been in the market for that for sure.
For Axel, his band is actually in direct competition with Beryl's band (if we ever get the V7 Battle of the Bands thread idea off the ground anyways) but she does like fraternizing with the enemy! I wonder if he'd be the sort who would pry a bit at her loose tongue to make her leak secrets and strats from the band.
Could be a fun scene whether background info or played out! Beryl would probably be very happy when she came to and saw him and his concern, and she might come on strong enough on accident to freak him out, just to make it hellaciously awkward. After that particular episode ended, dog buddies!

Okay so I have three more characters so I might as well e x p a n d w a l l o f t e x t

Joanne would fundamentally despise Ivy and tell her off, and since Joanne usually comes off as a loudmouth know-nothing I very much doubt Ivy would have a shred of respect for her. Probably would be lumped into the same tier as Tanisha given that she and Joanne are besties. Joanne would appreciate Nia, more quietly and internally than externally, externally Joanne would mostly just nod along to the trivia in affected 'dumb' awe. She might not seek out interacting with Nia too much out of a very self-conscious effort to avoid her perception of inconveniencing Nia due to the whole notebook thing. Joanne and Axel could partay and stuff. Since they're both all about that substance they could chat and drink together, maybe they're cool to the point where they game some dank Overwatch together, or we could keep their levels of knowledge about each other strictly casual. For Dante she'd gently let him down and they wouldn't have too much reason to speak except bantz now and then at a party, shrug.

For Charelle, like, who knows whether she hit on Dante before he hit on her or not, she thinks he's hilarious and she respects his boundaries for when he eventually backed off so they're probably still on terms as friends. They like themselves some animals, definitely, so I bet he knows her parrots. Also they skate together for sure. I don't see that Ivy has an opinion on Mikki but since Forrest allegedly disrespected Ivy I figure Charelle probably sided with Forrest on that one so no lost love. From Ivy anyways, Charelle doesn't give a damn either way. Charelle and Axel could have hooked up at a party and maybe they share a League group now post breakup? I dunno if he'd confide in her, on the one hand she might get some sense of his deeper concerns and accidentally pry, but on the other hand she sucks at being a shoulder to cry on so shrug.

For Gyu-ri first off she would have trigger-finger shot down Dante the moment he tried with a cold rebuttal of his girl-approaching habits. She ain't respecting that. Ivy's an interesting case and I can see two distinct possibilities. They were childhood friends in either case and built up a mutual loyalty that caused Gyu-ri to ascend into popular girl bitchiness around the time Ivy did with mutual interests in fashion, so on. Then Gyu-ri grandly fell off the wagon come high school and probably started openly bouncing Ivy's hypocrisies and flaws back at her. I could either see that Ivy would be forced to jettison Gyu-ri as a liability and they're now ex-friends with some bad blood and a load of bitter memories, or she'd hold on and find something to appreciate in Gyu-ri's more unstable demeanor (telling it as it is?) and they'd stay loyal to one another. Either way. And however it goes down they'd be in choir together so that could be awkward if it's the former, hm.

And finally Gyu-ri might have temporarily been on Nia's radar if she ever had a 'medical knowledge' phase? I think Nia's ability to be understanding could disarm at least some of Gyu-ri's overall vibe, the main issue that would lead to them not staying on as friends after Nia moved on from the interest would be that Gyu-ri would just shrug and be like 'job done, she doesn't need me anymore' and fuck off to wherever.

cicada i love you. walls of text about character relationships are the only thing that bring me joy anymore

Demetri: Totally down for everything. Him not having a crush on Ivy probably decreases her tolerance for him a bit, since that makes him harder to mess with and all, but she'll play nice when Max is around. Axel's general attitude toward Demetri is probably "just give me a reason" so him backing off is probs wise. If they knew each other from church I think Ian would be significantly more comfortable around Demetri than he might be otherwise- still kinda uncomfortable for reasons but comfortable enough that he'd be less acquaintance and more sort-of-maybe-approaching-friend-ish.

Beryl: yessssss besties god her and dante will be cute together. (if he gets to name one of Beryl's dogs he's gonna name them Falco cause that's what he wanted to name his last dog before his baby sister begged for naming rights) Ivy wouldn't seek out Beryl to hang out with or anything but she'd be cordial enough, which is probs enough for Beryl to think of her as kind of a friend. Nia wouldn't take Beryl particularly seriously but her friends tend to be serious sorts so she'd probably find 'talking' with Beryl to be kind of a nice respite. I'm kinda imagining Axel trying to charm info out of Beryl and it doesn't work and then he just asks straight out and she tells him whatever he wants to know :p don't worry no matter how much you tell axel we're still going to get our asses kicked in battle of the bands It is VERY easy to make Ian feel awkward and I'm down for Beryl pulling it off but them ending up friendly later! i'm sure Bucky will love her :D

Joanne: (fight fight fight fight fight) yeah Ivy would despise Joanne. directly on the shitlist she goes. Nia probably wouldn't notice her particularly, though she'd be down to talk if Joanne changed her mine on that front. I can picture Axel quoting some stupid Overwatch meme when he's drunk and Joanne gets it and he's like oh word what's your battletag? and then they end up playing together. they're not super close or anything, but def friends.

Charelle: all of Dante's platonic friendships with cute girls are my exact jam. plus I'm surprisingly lacking in skater friends for him (don't worry he's not any good either :^) ). Ivy I don't think has strong enough feelings to care that much about Charelle; the Forrest thing was pretty dumb and specific and probably not super likely to extend to her friends. Axel and Charelle could totally have been a thing. He's a big baby about feelings stuff though, so he probably hasn't confided in her at all. Down for playing League though :p

Gyu-ri: yesssssssssss ivy drama my favorite kind. Ivy's like super loyal re: her old friends, I think she'd stick with Gyu-ri as long as there was still some spark of friendship there. like she'd snap back if pushed but never has hard as she would with someone she actually disliked. so I would imagine they're the kind of friends who fight quite a bit but always end up coming back to each other. I actually think medical stuff is a standing interest of Nia's since her dad's a doctor; so maybe they Are like proper long-term friends?

i have a new kid please let him be friends with your kids now thanks

Artem knows Demetri from yearbook & anime club if nothing else and he tends to treat the people in the clubs he's in as friends even if they don't really talk outside of the club? they don't have a whole lot in common outside of maybe a little overlap in musical taste but artem's a nice dude so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ i have no idea how he and Beryl would have met specifically but i feel like they'd get along anyway. he'd know Charelle from anime club too so the same stuff applies as w/ Demetri including the part where they don't have a huge amount in common outside of club stuff
