Damian and Babs have joined the fray!

@Malloon: Both of these sound great. Cleo probably doesn't give a fuck about the opinion of Keith or his friends, though I can imagine they might have had a confrontation or two if they got particularly animated.

Chloe and Blaise are real interesting to me because I think given Blaise's nature they'd take the coldness more as a challenge than as something to be offended by. Teasing her in French and being overly friendly when she's about to try and show her that their unpredictability is fun and she needs to let her hair down some more. Plus Blaise can always use people that will call them on their shit, there's a particularly big incident with Z's Myles where they out him after their relationship goes nuclear and...yeah they're gonna deserve some people yelling at them after that. Forever >.>

@Kami: I think Cleo would think that Roxie is super fucking cool tbh. I've got her in my head as a pocket horror fan though it's not something she'd indulge much on her own, but if she had a friend who was way into it I could see her getting in deeper too. Plus the girl feeds on sass and and would think that her work is really really neat. Maybe even ask her for a hand figuring out how to get a YouTube channel and other stuff put out so she can build a social media presence, if Roxie'd be inclined to give her a hand there. I could see them being really good long term friends based on their personalities!

@CBP: Awwwww yiiiis I'm hella digging on Lucas and Jeremiah as urban explorer bros. I've been thinking about a hobby that would put him out away from people without being too close to his dad's outdoorsman interests and I think urban exploring would be a really good compromise, maybe they just ran into each other out geocaching or both ending up fucking around in the same old building without knowing the other was there.

Violet and Hel sounds great too. Other gaming friends are a plus, other witchy chicks are a must, and I think their personalities could mesh together super well. I could see them as friends from freshman year on, and Hel would be super into the pilgrimage Violet wants to take. I could also see her being one of the handful of people she confides about her relationship with?

@'loha: HOO BOY CAN BLAISE NOT KEEP A SECRET

I imagine after the incident with Myles Blaise has a really, really bad reputation both with the out and closeted members of the local GSM community. Like, they genuinely and frivolously endangered him out of pure spite. Combine that with Blaise's generally unpredictable personality and yeah, confiding in them is noooot a great plan XD I could see them being casually friendly before the Myles outing, after that is up to you. I can definitely see Hel and Nate as casual buds who are nice to each other and maybe occasionally game, but not in each other's inner circle.

Isra and Jeremiah could be...interesting. I don't think he'd tell her to back off because honestly he just doesn't have the backbone to even if he wanted her too right now, and maybe she can help him out with that some. He spends most of his time either quietly afraid, confused, or numb so how good a conversational partner he is depends on how/when she catches him from the day to day. He'd appreciate the help and concern, though, even if he has trouble showing it.

Oh hello hi hello friends I'm gonna start hugging you now okay <3_<3

Demetri:

Oh Blaise is gonna rain hellfire on that ass if he owes them money. Honestly though I think they'd keep playing with him unless he becomes a serial flake, they can give as good as they get and they're not looking to be friends, just take a sucker for a ride XD

Ooooooh I love this with Jeremiah and Demetri. Yes pretty please. Like, it's a perfect realistic relationship for him where yeah, dude's a toxic influence and by all rights he should have cut him out of his life, but if they're old friends I think he'd be afraid to lose one of the few points of stability he has as long as things don't escalate super hard. I think his homophobia would make Jeremiah visibly uncomfortable though, how would he respond to that?

Checkity-check-check with that Damian/Demetri relationship.

Beryl:

I think Blaise would definitely encourage polyship there, and that description of their relationship seems spot on. Actually huh. Hold up. Blaise might be poly and have a lot of Very Serious Thoughts about ethical polyamory. Fuck me. You're making me have character deep thoughts Cae-dot, I did not give permission for that O_O

Yeah, I think Hel is out to Beryl. She likes her and trusts her and thinks she's a groovy gal, plus it helps they're both emoji addicts. She'd be open to doing magic stuff with her as well, Hel's a pretty free-spirited practitioner~

plllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllls lure Jeremiah into chess club so I have an excuse to write a character who is as bad at chess as I am

Actually I think Damian generally likes Beryl. She's good enough in spirit that I doubt he'd police her too much, her heart's in the right place and he has bigger fish to fry. They're not super close friends or anything, but he'll smile when he sees her and has probably been to some of her shows.

Oh my gooooood I wanna do Babs and Beryl quietly awkwardly unawaredly crushing on each other forever and ever until the end of time, this picture is way to adorable in my head and it needs to happen yesterday

Megan:

Awww, I hadn't thought of Cleo as a momfriend before but actually you're super right, I can see that all the way. Cleo will drop a motherfucker who gives her trouble, and would probably try to encourage her to get out of her head and into the world a little more. It's cute and I love it, double plus approval.

Okay so this is kinda weird, but Blaise is very rare to explode and hates explaining themselves, so how would Megan feel if one day the relationship just...stopped? Like it was a casualish thing to start with and then Blaise suddenly got really distant and dismissive for awhile and has never explained why? Follow-up, but what if Blaise is back around to being weirdly flirtatious in the present day like nothing ever happened? I feel like we could do something real twisted and interesting here since Megan is super into expressing her negative feelings and making them understood while Blaise is super into being as vague and distant with people who they don't feel are worth their time as possible.

Aoi:

Here's the thing. I think at the start Blaise might get huffy, but once they've clocked his deal then for the most part they never engage with him. Never even acknowledges him. Like, possibly for for upwards of a year or two. Just watches him interacting with both them and others every day until one day in as public a place as possible they walk up behind him real slow, and bend over and whisper something absolutely vicious in his ear. Like, just going off the cuff here but I feel like it's something along the lines of feeling a great deal of pity for him since he is such a bitter, unimaginative, narrow-minded child that the only way he can feel competent is to reduce others with droll parroted opinions so that his own tasteless, cookie cutter existence doesn't look so fucking pathetic when placed alongside any person who could actually be mistaken for interesting. Then they walk away and go back to pretending he doesn't exist, no matter how he tries to get a rise out of them. And that's about how Blaise feels about Aoi.

Hit me up when you have those others, I'm very interested ^.^

Oh shiiiiiiiii I have so much to respond to sorry folks ;_;

Errything looks good Cae-dot!

Abaynesh:

Vibing on Abaynesh and Cleo! Real talk: memory thread where they go to a WWE live show or taping together? Yes, yes, maybe?

Babs and Abaynesh totally werks, I think Babs probably doesn't get into her hobbies or anything so much but she likes her ^.^

Keisha:

SECRET LOVERS YOU SAY? Noticed that looking through your profile and hooo I can see something coming out of Keisha interviewing her for an article and them spending time together. Cleo probably parties a bit but not too hardcore, though I can see her getting into it.

Hmm, I think Damion and Keisha might disagree some on specific economic policies but to be honest that's not Damion's main focus so I think they'd get along fine?

Damion's not on the debate team, but Hel is and I could see her really liking Keisha! There might be something there, they might even be partners if you're down.

Kelly:

Ooooh I love the idea that Blaise and Kelly kinda wanna be friends, but Blaise is too extra for Kelly and Kelly is too basic for Blaise, I could see Blaise trying to drag her kicking and screaming into being what they feel is more interesting XD

Lizzy:

Hmm, not seeing a ton of overlap between Cleo and Lizzy's interests, but I could see Cleo sticking up for her and biting heads off if she catches people bullying her? She's got a soft spot for wilting flowers.

Ivy:

Hahahahahaha Blaise will tear this bitch apart :3 They're rivals in the gossip/manipulation game I think and if Blaise ever caught wind of Ivy talking shit they would make it a mission to burn her to the ground.

Jeremiah don't have nothing to say to Ivy. Probably quietly hates her if she's always on his case but I don't think he says or does much back, per his usual.

Hel's cursed her at some point. It was a very nice ceremony involving giving her yearbook picture over to the flames and invoking personal ruin upon her soul, only to be disappointed when she realizes that won't work because Ivy doesn't have one~

Dante:

Yooooooo Blaise and Dante totally could have hooked up at some point, it's how they do. I think they find him amusing in a desperate puppy sort of way and are willing to indulge once. Guts says the experience was disappointingly normal and they ignore him now, but I'm up for other ideas as well!

Hel, Cleo, and Babs are aaaaaaaaaall kinda over Dante in different ways, mostly because he seems to flirt with anything that moves and that's not their jam. Babs is kinda flattered, I think, but never does much more than politely smile and thank him. Cleo laughs at him and flirts back, but nothing's ever gonna happen. I think the first time he tried it with Hel she gave him a blank faced "...okay. Cool. Cool. I'm, uh, I'm gonna go now, okay? Okay."

Also I think Damion kiiiinda quietly digs Dante? He likes the earnestness and the hustle, plus they're on the track team so track buds?

Axel:

Okay Axel crushing on Hel is kinda fucking cute. I like the idea that it's unresolved, like maybe it's come up and they talked about it a couple times but she's got hang-ups that keep it from being an outright yes or no. Like, we can make this real sad and go with she likes him and has always kinda been interested but doesn't wanna potentially burn the band to the ground if they don't work or her issues wig out. Theeeen Hel's current secret online relationship happens and I'm debating whether he knows and man there is so much juicy juicy drama here, let's do it O_O

Cleo likes guitar boys, she's flirted with him at some point.

Ian:

Aww, Ian and Jeremiah. I like it. It's interesting because I imagine some of the football bros are among Jeremiah's worst antagonists, but he appreciates having a friend who is actually trying to understand him. Good bro.

Yeah, Damian looooves Ian. Always happy to see oasis in the sea of football suck XD

Nia:

I think Nia and Jeremiah could actually be really close friends...oh my god I want Jeremiah to learn ASL from Nia, I want that memory thread reeeeaaal bad, it's kinda perfect. Jeremiah's not afraid of questions so much as he is judgement and Nia seems like she gives off this really genuine vibe that I think he'd respond super positively to, so there's something there. Probably something even like a platonic crush on his end.

Hel and Nia is also p. cute, I dunno how they interact yet either but I kinda want something there, I'll get back to you!
