Hello! My name is Frogue and I made a profile for a character, and it hasn't been approved yet but it's here.

Her name is Georgia Lee Day! Georgia Lee is her first name, as opposed to Lee Day being her last name. I realise that's confusing but I've locked that in.

She's very driven and motivated and whatnot, and respects that in other people, so I guess people who are ambitious would be get along with her? She studies a lot, and does SAT prep classes and is in softball and a church youth group and works at the safeway and volunteers at this elder care thing. She tries pretty hard to be friendly, and thinks of herself as easy to get along with, but she's also competitive, oversensitive to criticism and tends to put her own goals ahead of others', which may put people off of her.

Of late she has been getting on people's nerves a lot, so I guess at the moment I am looking for people with pre-existing positive relationships with her? Friends, coworkers, church people etc. Also Slam and I are always looking for more softball peeps!
[+] spoiler
+ Jasper Bustamante - friendly
+ Rose Cobbler - gettin' along, mutual respect
+ Oliver Walton - study buddy!
+ Ariana Luz - church mice, maybe kinda dominates a little
+ Jenihfer Peterson - interlocutor
+ Adelaide Walker - sporty pals
+ Vincenzo Gatti - new fraaand
+ Coleen Reagan - old fraaand

/ Leon Valera - source of frustration
/ Bernadette Thomas - judged by the company she keeps

- Fiyori Senay - praying mantis
- Ty Yazzie - big angry manbaby, needs to buy a dictionary
- Vanessa Stone - maybe she should try turning up to practice
Thanks!

Jasper might be a good friend of hers! They're both juniors, and Jasper's fairly outgoing. They also have religion in common, and can bond over that~

Rose is a similarly very competitive person, so I think she'd get on pretty great with Georgia Lee! Leon, on the other hand, is similarly oversensitive to criticism and such, so I think they'd argue a lot/get stuck in negative feedback loops and explode.

Considering the duality of Oliver, I think that he and Georgia Lee would get on really well at school. I think if they hung out at other times it would prolly be inviting her round to his to study, or something?

Friendships shall be sent, by mail order.

For Georgia I can see both my Ariana and Jenhifer having some form of inroads with her. For Ariana it's the fact that they're both Methodists (I think, that is a detail that I may have to change?) and might volunteer together in the youth group? Ariana's naturally a follower by nature and Georgia's go-gettem attitude might mean she sort of naturally becomes Ariana's 'boss' figure when their volunteer hours coincide? So they have an acquaintance and talk, but due to the lack of shared interests it might not be anything too intimate.
As for Jen they're both hard workers, though Jen is a more contemplative and critical thinker sort of academic, just from my study of Georgia's style of rote memorization. Still, as I know from experience those primarily given to a rote style can still talk up a storm, so I'm sure they can have lively discussions. Might study together, maybe they worked together in Safeway back in the day and met through that?

Any other thoughts feel free to chiperino in!

Given that Jen has some scholarships lined up already, that makes me think she's a senior? They have different career ambitions, but they're both aiming to scholarship their way out of Kingman, which are similar enough goals that Georgia Lee would probably be quite competitive with her, and kinda see her as a rival? She'd definitely be nice to her face though, and study + work with her, though. A critical thinker would actually be a fantastic person to talk to Georgia Lee, since despite like, thinking pretty highly of her intelligence, that's not really something she does all that well. If there are multiple perspectives on an issue, she'll tend to just accept the first one she hears, and then dismiss all the others, instead of like, comparing and evaluating them. Even with her life goals, she's kinda just internalized her parents' values (despite like, trying to be independent from them) rather than actually sat down and thought about who she is and what she wants. Talking to someone who she considers an intellectual equal, but who's more capable of that sort of contemplative thinking, could stand to really shake up Georgia Lee's worldview!

With Ariana, it'd be good to have someone with whom to volunteer with. Georgia Lee's methodism is kinda the same as her ambitions - she just adopted it by default, rather than thinking about it, and isn't really all that spiritual. She's not really capable of the sort of soul searching it takes to stop being religious, but it really only plays a part in her life as a means to an end, in terms of padding out a college application. A genuine believer might pick up on this, and it might make them kinda uncomfortable - I don't know how like, devout Ariana is, in regards to this. You say she's quiet in her religion, but is that just like, in terms of talking to other people about it? Or is it also something that to her isn't that big a deal.

Georgia Lee's been in Kingman her whole life, so she'll definitely know someone as social and prominent as Irene. She might be made a bit insecure by Irene's natural academic abilities, but they're sure to be at least familiar with one another, and probably friendly if not quite friends.

Probably? I haven't decided completely on Jen's grade yet, it's still something I'm personally debating the merits of (thankies for reminding me to update the rest of the girls tho lol). Going to tentatively say she's a senior for your purposes. That is quite the interesting relationship, and one I think Jen would be very well suited for. One of the persons who I based Jen as a conglomerate of old friends/rivals on from my IRL actually did have a similar effect on me in my younger years, so I definitely do know that feel personally.

It would be the sort of thing that Ariana picks up on but doesn't really mind, I suppose. She's not too picky about the specifics with others when they have the sort of personality she'll follow. The sort who doesn't question too much, at least externally. The inner dialogue might have some choice words occasionally, but for the most part I still flag Georgia as someone who'd take command in the group.

That sounds fine to me! If they've lived their whole lives together I'm sure they were probably on better terms when younger? Maybe as Georgia got busy she sort of naturally drifted away from Irene but they still consider one another friends even if they don't have the time to hang out in similar spheres nowadays.

Yeah, I like the idea of them having drifted apart! Georgia Lee's kinda naturally a critical person, though she tries to hide it, but their former friendship might give her the impression that she's entitled to like, share her opinion on Irene's life choices and such. Not sure how Irene'd take that.

I have zero plans as yet for anything in pregame/in game, so feel free to PM me if you want to sort out something more concrete!

Oh, just as as a thought, given that Georgia Lee hasn't had much in the way of male experience and plays softball, there may be some rumours regarding her sexuality, which might colour her and Jenihfer's relationship?
