@Jimmy: Lukas and Isra would definitely get along. Admittedly Isra isn't the most morally uptight Muslim, so she doesn't mind his mother's occupation (although she might get a giggle out of it once in a while).

@Kermit: Alison's view of Val would vary depending on exactly how argumentative she is. If Val is generally civil, Alison could view her as a respectable debate partner. If not...so much for the tolerant left.

And Floyd's fairly friendly, so he might at least try to get along with Michael. I'm down for the one-sided rivalry, but I feel like Michael wouldn't talk to him much bc Floyd's very well known as a weeaboo rapper.

Ned likes video games and is a member of drama club, so he and Nate could know each other through that. Ned is also a member of anime club with Floyd.

Yuki likes D&D, so maybe she and Teddy can have a session together. Yuki could teach a bit of Japanese to Floyd if he asks nicely. She could take interest in Isra's crime and horror podcast. Nate and her both have an interest in writing, so they could exchange ideas.

It'd be funny to see Zach and Nate get into a meme war. Teddy could have had some unpleasant history with each other online. Maybe Zach trolled him and Teddy did't take it well. Would Isra be interested in pranking with Zach?

Alison Bernhiesel: Sierra would not like her since Alison is a conservative type. Lucas probably wouldn't know her too well since they don't really walk the same circles but could have flirted with her at some point.

Nate Malaqui: Lucas would probably know him since he also works as part of the backstage crew of the drama club, and while not an artist himself (at least traditional art, anyway) he does love talking about it. So I could see them getting along.

Isra Khalili: Probably would get along with Lucas since he is super into horror, and he might try and get her to help out with his film projects because of her talents in audio mixing and music. Maybe they could have gone out at some point? Get back to me on that. She also might get along with Sierra since both are rebelling against their parents out of spite, go to parties, and date people behind their backs (although Sierra tends to date people she knows her parent will hate). So I can see them knowing one another.

@Ryuki: Most of 'em look good, yeah! Only note is that I think both Isra and Nate would be a little offput by his assholeishness, though Nate would be the one to distance himself more often - Isra usually just puts up with it.

@Lord: Seems good! Isra is totes down to helping out with audio stuff from time to time, and a fling definitely could've happened! Their current relationship will depend on how well he handles his exes though.

Lucas is the kind of guy who tries to be on good terms with his exes, especially since he is self-conscious about his inability to maintain his relationships with them. So unless he did something to get his ex to absolutely hate him, I don't see him being on bad terms with them.

Oh heyyy again! Just posting bc I don't think I've plotted with you about Janie and Adele.

With Alison, Janie's also on the student council, and I could see Janie trying really hard to be friends with her. However, Janie is the sister of randomness's Jason/Jaclyn, and if you think that would color Alison's opinion of it, I'm all for it!

Adele and Isra probs PARTAY together.

Adele would know Floyd from chorus, and she's v friendly, and bc she's friends with Joanne, would know Teddy? IDK how close they'd be, though.

@Somer: Everything seems to be in order! I think Teddy and Adele would be friends-of-friends, and whether or not she likes him depends on whether or not she can tolerate his kind of humor.

Yayyy! Adele tends to be pretty chill with most shit, so they would be kind-of-friends, but not that close, methinks.

Estela Cardoso would almost certainly be a rival to Alison, both in the Debate Club and Student Counxil, as each have major political ambitions but with vastly different ideologies.

Osiris would probably get along with Isra quite well as they are both non-strict Muslims and they both have a passion for journalism and literature.

Bump for new characters: Teddy 2.0 and Robin!

Isra, Floyd, and Teddy 1.0 have also been canned :c or more accurately, (mostly) triple fused into Teddy 2.0

Who is this sassy lost child
[ *  *  *  *  *  *  * ]
*cracks knuckles* Alright, let's get this all up to date, since I also have two new kids since I last posted in here.

Mercy is in the art club, cheerleads, and is now a K-Pop fan, so she could be friendly with both Nate and Robin. Siyanda is in the GSA, so ze and Teddy have probably seen each other around. They're also both musically-inclined, but in different ways as Siyanda plays alto sax for the school band. Robin and Myles also run in the same circles and I can see them getting on decently, though he probably considers her a bit overconfident.
"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."

Right, well, let's get down to brass tacks, shall we?

Teddy: Pessimistic (albeit recovering), sarcastic, loves arguing with conservative types, both know Beryl. Definitely seems like somebody that Sierra would probably be friends with since they are both pretty similar.

Robin: Would probably know both my characters. Sierra is a sporty type that also aspires to be an Olympian (in her case, archery) and is rather proud of her skills, and has a love of animals and would probably share Robin's interests in snakes and turtles. They could just be acquaintances or maybe their interests over lap just enough that maybe they are friends. Lucas meanwhile is part of the popular crowd (is best stat is Charisma) and he is a member of the drama club, so she'd definitely know him. He probably flirted with her ta some point, and maybe they've dated in the past, but that's up to you.

@LordofAwesome: I can see Teddy and Sierra being fairly good friends of friends. Sierra is one person Teddy doesn't have to consciously restrain himself around, since she's the type to take his humor well.

I can also see Robin and Sierra being animal buddies! Not too close, but friends nonetheless!

The problem re: Lucas and Robin is that she only recently joined the drama club (around junior year), and she had most of her flings in her freshman/sophomore years. They'd probably still date though! Probably short-lived since Robin is a weenie for horror but they'd be on good terms, and likely still pals in the drama club!

As you redefine your characters so do I! Let's take stock of everything, I guess.

Alison -

Gyu-ri - Is now not a ticking time bomb all the time! Alison might like her more in the grand scheme of things now that Gyu-ri is fairly inoffensive, otherwise everything works about the same.
Demetri - Same. I think I'll be removing his crush on her from his end. He still thinks highly of her demeanor, maybe some points lost for being in Ivy's backpocket, but besides that the same.
Ramsey - Interesting thought here, what about ex-friends? Let's say Ramsey used to be in her crowd when she was ringleading kids around in elementary school, but as they both made their transitions into puberty Ramsey made her uncomfortable with the implications of his more feminine behaviors like wanting to do her makeup and gossip her way. Like, if she'd find that sort of thing a bit too disagreeable?

Nate -
Gyu-ri - Gyu-ri openly finds his hobbies wasteful and laughable but isn't too harsh on him because he and Ji-hyun are close. No lost love between them person to person, but no need for them to get too bothered over one another. Other relationships remain unchanged, p much.

Teddy -
Beryl - Beryl was always the supportive one, I guess! Probably even played along with him during his edgelord phase. They ultimately end up being close enough that their relationship is the genesis of Beyond Human and all the rest of the stuff happens later, if I understood what we hashed out on Discord correctly? Nowadays she's a good person to vent at since she listens in a non-judgmental way. They also both handle mixing duty for band tracks, so I figure within that outfit they're both the closest?
Joanne - Let's bring back that idea where Joanne and Teddy have been friends for a while but they got into spats and drama as Teddy became more vitrolic and irritable? Joanne probably wouldn't be sitting pretty with that negativity in her life, yup. So they have some falling outs and get back togethers over middle school, then their friendship is busy healing in high school as they're both trying to put the work in now that they have a mutual understanding. All clubs shared, more or less.

Robin -
Joanne - Good tea? Good tea, they sup upon. Joanne isn't, like, mainstream popular but she's got that popular veneer about her all the same so they probably sometimes swap stories over lunch or something. Also Joanne has all the right ingredients to get dragged into the K-Pop vortex over the course of Pregame? Joanne might give Robin some stinkeye since K-Pop is derivative from black culture, but still end up in guilty pleasure territory all the same.

V6 - Like you imagined when you... were young...
