I'm definitely bringing Sebastien back and I want to try keeping him a little closer to his original concept, where he was a little more on the villainous side. Not sure yet exactly which angle that'll take, I'll have to see how the setting and cast fall.

I'm bringing back Kelly Peterson for sure, since I feel like she had a lot of potential that I didn't take advantage of.

I also might bring back Dan Liu, but there's other possibilities for my 2nd slot. I feel like I could have done more with him as well.

My planned lineup (which you might see in my sig at time of writing):

Zoe Walker-Zoe is an interesting case because she's my character, but I never wrote her; having had three sandbox girls in TV2, I adopted Zoe off to Ohm so he could run his first character.

I think Ohm did a great job, no doubt! I just feel like Zoe is in a way the one who got away, the one who I never got to write in a version, for better or worse. So it seems only fair to write her myself, after having adopted her off (This also implies I might write V6's Jane Madison in the future, but probably not SC2).

Aaron Hughes-A big appeal of Second Chances is the ability to take a well-established character from an earlier version and do your own twist on them. It's attention-grabbing for sure, but it also can be a very fun experience. Writing someone who's already infamous, changing a well-known path, could make for a really unique character.

A fair few people are following this trend (I'm told several other notable V4 killers might be in SC2), and Aaron is my take. I enjoyed his original island time, but I really feel I could do a really fun and interesting job of turning him into someone beyond his initial portrayal.

Alright, I'll bite:

Jonathan "Badass Johnny Lancer" Lancer: Character of some V3 dude who went inactive who then went to D/N. Is also basically Two-Face. I think he was an interesting enough concept and I'm kinda morbidly curious about doing one of the more out-there V3 characters in SCDos so here I am. Plus I have a bit of a plan for him. You'll see.

Maxwell Lombardi: Got permission from Fiori to do it. Expect the same guy except with the flaws of his concept and execution hopefully (read, don't expect me to do a good job at it, i'm me) ironed out into relative goodness. I also have plans for him, but again, you'll see what they are soon enough.

Running Kitty Gittschall (v4), one of Ciel's many strong V4 performances. I loved her story and her character, I really did. There's a number of things I think that are inherent to her character that Ciel only addressed indirectly or didn't elect to, which is what I hope to explore in this go about it. Hopefully I'll be able to master the character tone Ciel used for her, given how good it originally was in the first place!

And Renée Carlson (TV1), aka the damn accent in the name. She seems to be one of MurderWeasel's concepts that had a lot of interesting ideas behind it but didn't actually get the chance to explore them to their fullest on island proper. Very good character baseline, so hopefully I can translate it into good stuff on island.

I'm bringing back two of my early characters who I feel suffered the most from my shitty writing at the time.

Unlike my other V5 kids, Natalia Kowalski doesn't have an ending I'm happy with. Of course, this was because she went terminally inactive, so avoiding that this time around would be a good start. I just feel like she deserves to have a proper story.

My second concept is Tori Gavlik, my sole PV2 character. This is mostly because I asked Toben to review her storyline way back when, which really illuminated the idiosyncrasies of my early writing. It really motivated me to try and do her over again, fixing the mistakes I made in PV2.

Both of them were also killed by collar detonation, so let's see if I can get them properly murdered this time.

As my first character, I've still got a pretty strong attachment to Daniel Whitten so hopefully won't get shot into the head five minutes into the game this time around.

I'm not exactly unhappy with how Alice Gilman ultimately turned out, but I kinda completely fucked up her character halfway through the game, so I'm hoping this time to keep her more consistent to her early V5 characterization, i.e., kind of a bad person!

I'm gonna be writing Richard Orsmby from Virtua because I'm allergic to writing other people's characters but am also allergic to rehashing my own characters, so I'm picking the dude who was explicitly designed to die almost immediately since messing with him again won't feel like a betrayal of the original work, and even if I'm wrong and it does I don't really care. Also, if I get fed up too quickly, I already know I can dump him immediately on a Hero Card and make it kinda work. :p
