I had 1 kid for V7, and then I had 2, but now I have 1+2

Billy Trevino - An impulsive young lad with a hatred of authority. He enjoys skateboarding and video games. He has an interest in stories about the paranormal occurrences and secret conspiracies, though he doesn't seriously believe them. He's also something of a party animal and a stoner. He used to be on the baseball team in ninth grade, but he quit angrily one day after a period of low motivation and poor performance. He's a very social person and makes friends easily, hanging around mainly with rebels and offbeat kids but having friends of various interests and social groups. Around people he likes, he's easygoing and playful. However, there's a lot of people he doesn't like. He doesn't like snobby rich kids or no-fun-sticks-in the-mud or people who act like they're hot shit or people who are shills for the man. If he doesn't like you, he'll be very honest about it. He'll be very belligerent around you.

So basically, I want lots of friends and lots of enemies.

Relationships

Ron Kiser - The son of an upper-middle class family that moved into the gated community a few years before he was born. As a child, Ron was a scrawny, socially awkward nerd and he was frequently bullied. In middle school, he had a growth spurt and joined the basketball team. After that, he started hiding his nerdiness and hanging out with the cool kids so he wouldn't get bullied anymore. Nowadays he's basically a hanger-on to the popular kids' group, he kisses up to them and does whatever they want but he's still too awkward to really be "one of them". He also gets them booze when they want it, because his parents are too permissive. Secretly, Ron still likes watching anime and playing jrpgs with qt waifus. He also plays golf.

Ron is desperate to be liked and he'll do whatever the popular kids want him to do. So I want Ron to have a bunch of popular and/or rich "friends" who treat him like a toady. I want people who bullied him as a kid and may or may not hang out with him now. Finally, I want a few nerdy kids who were friends with him in childhood but who were abandoned by him once he starting trying to be popular.

Relationships

Amelia Coyle - Amelia is not the kindest person. She gets annoyed very easily, she's constantly judging others, and she decides that she hates people based on the pettiest of reasons. She won't say anything, of course. She may hate everyone, but she still wants them to like her. Amelia is always polite and smiling when she's talking to others, sometimes excessively so. If she really can't stand someone, she'll try to come up with excuses to avoid them, but she'll never be honest about it. Amelia comes from a large, traditional family, and she goes to church (Southern Baptist) every Sunday, though she isn't sure what she believes in. She doesn't have many friends, and she mostly spends her time occupying herself with a bunch of extracurriculars: she's in the archery club, she plays flute for the band, and she's in the film club. Films are actually the only thing she's passionate about, and in particular she enjoys horror films from the 70s and 80s. Even the trash! Her parents don't approve of this, but they've decided there's not much they can do about it.

to most of the school, Amelia is known for being nice and polite but not much more than that. Amelia doesn't have many friends. mostly she just has a lot of people from her clubs and people with similar interests that she doesn't mind talking to sometimes. Maybe she has a few closer friends that she's willing to be more honest around, but she won't show the full extent of her personality around anyone. If your kid is a practicing Southern Baptist, they know her from church. And of course, if your character has any possibly annoying personality flaws or quirks, there's a good chance Amelia secretly hates their guts.

Dante and Axel both definitely know Billy. Dante parties and skates, Axel parties harder and smokes. Nia'd be interested in his paranormal/conspiracy stories if he likes talking about them. Ivy would think he's a loser and would probably just ignore him except that he's definitely gotten in her face in the past and therefore gotten herself on her shitlist.

lemme know what you think !

Heyyy, Violet's more than willing to hang out and indulge Billy's interests in Video Games and the Paranormal. I'm not sure how much credence she'd personally lend to conspiracy theories, and the drugs would freak her out a bit, but she'd otherwise be pretty chill around him.

Lucas is sort of off-beat and out there, though more of a solitary type. I think he might initially dislike Billy, but come around later.

Now you mentioning the baseball team is interesting, because Max is also on the baseball team and would have been around when Billy quit. I imagine there's still some tension, considering that Max went on further with the team, and also tension because of Max's political views that he might view as snobby or privileged or too supportive of big government. That's really up to you, though.

Thank you for viewing and replying. I am also pleased to announce that after a day of deep consideration, I have come up with a title for this relationship thread. Truly a great day, one we'll all remember for years to come.

Zach would definitely enjoy Billy's company. Zach can be pretty rebellious as well. Would Billy be interested in doing pranks with Zach?

Ned would probably be friendly enough to be a casual friend to Billy, although I don't think he'd know how to feel about Billy's conspiracies or get into drugs.

Offbeat kids? That seems like a good descriptor for Lukas. Both of them being pretty easygoing works in their favour and I imagine Lukas enjoys listening to Billy's stories of paranormal encounters and conspiracy theories for inspiration for his stories. I can definitely imagine them being friends, if not close friends.

Joey's pretty hot shit in his own mind, but he knows acting like it can get on people's nerves, so he sticks to self-promotion when he has an oppertunity to back it up (usually with, but not often limited to, his charisma).

Chloe can be a stick-in-the-mud, but doesn't go out of her way to ruin other people's fun. If it's nonsense, but ultimately harmless, she'll avoid it; if she can't, she'll ignore it; if she can't, she'll grudgingly go along with it. If it's harmful, however (which might just be "distracting her or others from more useful things"), she won't be shy in in trying to make the fun go away, or stop.
V6 Character:
Benjamin "Squirrel" Lichter [ ~ / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / + / > ] - You'll find him in the clouds.
V7 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...

yayyyy Janie is a no-fun-stick-in-the-mud so they'll hate each other. Abaynesh may try to befriend him as part of her whole REBEL AGAINST PARENTS CAUTIOUSLY initiative. Adele may think he's shady.

I've been meaning to reply to this one for a while, keep procrastinating, but now I'm here!

My guy Akiem is much too polite to say it but he probably shows reasonably clearly that he kinda looks down on/pities Billy, he quit his sport and he's fallen into vice, he probably needs to find Jesus.

As for Heather, she's a questionable one, she could possibly be friends with him, they've got their tempers and disdain for the popular kids in common, but equally... they've got their tempers in common and could just as easily have pissed each other off some day and never made nice. Hard to be sure there, might depend on whether they have any other friends in common.

I added a second kid. I'll post my third one soon, probably.

I'll also get around to posting an actual list of Billy's current relationships tonight or tomorrow, hopefully.

Asante would know Ron from Basketball for sure, possibly as far back as middle school as you stated. He had a similar growth from being kind of a chunky kid who worked towards being a starter on the team and also has a "nerd" interest in DBZ, but would be much more open about it. So I think it'd be an interesting dynamic between the two if they drifted apart as friends but still have to hang around pretty tightly for one reason or another. I dunno how Ron would feel about that, but I figured I'd toss it your way. Here's the excerpt from my relationship thread.

Quote:
 
Asante Esiason: Big man on campus...in a more literal sense. While he is the starting center for Hunter High's highly ranked basketball team, he doesn't really use that to play into popularity politics. Asante is more likely to come off as either cold and/or weird, depending on who you talk to, barring some of his teammates of course. He's been a big fan of the Dragon Ball franchise since he was a kid, and generally wears that on his sleeve, and will explain why he feels GT isn't that bad (it is tho). He's into streetwear fashion, even a lot of the stuff on the more "out-there" side of things, and spends a lot of time on how he looks to fit his ideal image.

Regarding Ron:

I think it would be interesting if Ned and Ron were friends as kids, but when Ron joined the basketball team and started hanging around the popular crowd, they kinda grew apart from one another. They could still be on good terms though, since they both like anime. Maybe they can talk while attending Anime Club.

@Ryuki I assume you're talking about Ron. They could have been friends as kids, but Ron wouldn't want to hang out with him now. Ron keeps his current love of anime a secret from everyone, and if Ned's in the anime club Ron will see that as even more reason to stay as far away from him as possible.
