@Aloha - Stepney's got decently thick skin, especially if he knows you're just messing around or teasing, so I think he'd get along stellar with Teddy! Just so long as he remembers that the Prosopagnosia is off limits for Jokes. I don't think Lyra would be part of the alliance for fear of accidentally outing themselves, but they'd almost certainly Teddy as something they were safe to come out to; they generally feel safest amongst other trans and NB people, especially those who are just as dorky as they are! Dean is absolutely the sort of person to pronounce anime as 'aneem' but he'd be more than happy for Floyd to try and introduce him to some stuff! He'd probably be bemused at half the stuff that happens, probably make a one man MST3K of it. Garren would... yeah, uh, man, Garren would do everything in his power to make Teddy's life a living hell. There's pure hatred between the two, because, yep, Garren is absolutely 100% transphobic. Floyd's an utter dweeb and nerd, but there's no-one Boyd would rather have as a brother. He's proud of his little bro.
@Somersault - FINALLY somebody who can share Stepney's love of jazz. He's so alone out here ;w;
@Cicada - Please please PLEASE have Beryl be Lyra's biggest supporter in their magical endeavours, it'd make their little heart light up so much. They should also absolutely get together to try and design a robot, and Lyra would have to constantly remind Beryl why they can't put 14 chainsaws on it, for a start chainsaws aren't even PRACTICAL in robot combat and-. Demetri is probably Stepney's favourite opponent when he's been on a losing streak, cause he KNOWS he'll get an easy win, but other than that, yeah, noooot a fan. More a lack of respect than outright hatred; he sees Demetri as a little skeevy and never coughs up, he's got like 3 outstanding debts by now. I feeeeeel like Gyu-ri probably would step over the line and make fun of Stepney's prosopagnosia, and that's when he'd realise she's very not cool and definitely not someone he should be hanging out with, and would be wilfully ignorant of that time he maybe forgot to tell her they were gambling for real money. Oh, Katie would definitely like someone with the patience of a saint, especially with her music stuff, otherwise she's liable to slam her laptop shut and go punch her punchbag if she puts one note in wrong. I think they'd be good friends, with a bond strengthened from when they first made, occasionally tested by the times Beryl is shit at mediating. I think Katie would actually also get on pretty great with Charelle! She wouldn't have too much against Charelle's apathy, considering she's not one to speak on that front. They've got plenty of common ground in terms of interests, and Charelle's attractive and Katie is a Gay. She's almost certainly harboured a crush at some point. Yeah Dean sounds like a perfect fit for friends with Joanne and Charelle! He considers pretty much anybody he's friends with as a good friend, even if they themselves don't see him as much more than just The Weed Guy. Dean spends, like, basically the bare minimum amount of time on his schoolwork (unless he's doing study buddy stuff) so he'll have plenty of time to be a sk8er boi. SPEAKING OF BOIS, IT'S THE BOIS, GARREN AND DEMETRI. Demetri is Garren's best bud and he'll stick with the guy like glue, and he's not gonna let those sjw feminazis try and steal him away with their flirtation ways. Speaking of, Garren would absolutely be confused and suspicious to all hell as to why Beryl isn't reacting with scorn and disdain towards him. He absolutely doesn't like her, but she puts him on edge, so he'd honestly try and make, like, one insulting comment towards her per day, then scarper. Joanne you fool the more you scowl and yell at Garren the more jokes and insults he makes concerning you. She'd be one of his favourite targets, without a doubt. Oh my god yes, Boyd would both absolutely declare Beryl his rival and also absolutely have a major crush on her too. Hell, he'd probably, as soon as he heard she had to drop from sports and stuff, be all like "Oh man sucks you have to give this all up, rival, hahahaha, hey wanna go see a movie or something???" What with Beryl's flip-flopping nature and Boyd's bombastic/hopelessly romantic nature, I think their friendship/relationship would be an incredible trainwreck, but a sweet and good-natured one.
@Fenris - Lyra would definitely still be open to still being friends with Dante, if he asked them about it and stuff, and would also definitely still retain a crush on him throughout! Oh Lyra would definitely be friends with Artem!! They might be a liiiiittle put off by the morbid pessimism stuff, but if he's also friends with Dolly and other spooky/mystical lads, then they've almost certainly seen him loosened up and stuff. Dean would also probably know him through Illegal Weed Activities! And Garren would have an endless stream of Twilight/homophobic jokes to make about Artem, because those are still funny, right
@TheLordOfAwesome - Lyra would definitely be smitten with Lucas and his flirting would almost certainly make them feel validated and better about themself so, yeah, I think it'd have been cool for them to have gone out for a while! Lyra would have probably broken things off for the same reason as her relationship with Dante (but could bring up the alcohol thing as an excuse for why), but they'd still want to stay as friends with him (and maybe still have a crush on him). Lyra would, likewise, be more than a little intimidated by Sierra at first, but would be perfectly nice to her regardless, and would probably be very happy to find her being nice to them in return! Oh man, I think the cruellest irony is that Katie and Sierra would work really well as girlfriends if their first impressions weren't so bad! But you're absolutely right, if Sierra said anything that even vaguely pissed Katie off, she'd put her on her shitlist, no questions asked. Like ships in the night. I imagine that Lucas' attempts at hitting on her were cut off by Katie's threats of straight up hitting him, and she probably views him with suspicion and disdain from now on. Dean is friends with pretty much anyone who's remotely civil with him, and neither Lucas nor Sierra seem like Totally Bad Dudes, so he'd happily interact with them! Garren also hates Sierra, and would absolutely insult and make jokes about her whenever she in the vicinity, so that all works out wonderfully! I think Boyd would definitely try and get in good with Sierra; he probably considers her a rival through her PE inclinations, and, girl crazy sap that he is, he's probably crushed on her at some point. I imagine, it'd go something like "Hey I heard your family does hunting and stuff, you into that too?" "No." "Hahahahahahahah me neither I hate it it's awful!" He's not very good at this whole flirting thing.
@the smeliest gay - LYRAN. Lyra would, 100%, consider Bryan one of their bestest friends, and perfect in every single way; he's big, caring and supportive for when they get especially down and depressed, doesn't make fun of their interest in magic and robot combat, and will stick up for them when people like Ivy try and bully them. He'd probably be one of the few non-LGBTQ people they come out to; they basically feel safe as heck around him. They'd also probably get on swell with Malik! Probably not, like, super close, like you said, as they probably wouldn't see him as someone they could rely on in a crisis; "he seems like the kinda guy to respond to a panicked text 3 hours late with a "hey u good?"" But that aside, generally good pals. And if Lyra is anything like me they absolutely are then Sam would 100% be Lyra's type, and fill them with fluster and blush. Stepney tries his very best not to let people know he cheats, and if Bryan ever does find out about it then, more than anything, Stepney would just be disappointed in himself for not hiding it better. He would appreciate somebody that also takes an interest in his out-there hobbies, though! Stepney would VERY much appreciate another person that he can recognise at first glance, but there's not toooo much aside from that for him and Sam to bond over. He probably wouldn't be too fussed by her 100%ness, and so they'd probably be okay, but not stellar, friends. Katie would see Bryan as her Best Bro Friend; she really hates her quick temper and explosive moods, so having someone around who she can vent to, talk about LGBT stuff with, and also lift with, would be the best sort of person in her book. Oh, man, I'd really like for someone to teach Katie SOMETHING about music! ;w; She's enthusiastic (for about 15 minutes at a time) but has, like, zero musical understanding; stuff like time signatures and key signatures is basically a mystery to her. Someone to help her with that would POSSIBLY make her less likely to want to throw her computer in the trash after each attempt. AND YEAH KATIE IS GAY AS FUCK, GODDAMNIT SAM STOP BEING SO HOT. Dean is chill as heck with EVERYONE but especially Captain Chill Bryan himself! And he'd absolutely also get on aces with Malik, which has the great side effect of the always positive and bouncy Malik with the constantly chill and stoned Dean. Garren will call Bryan a chad at every opportunity and hate his guts and everything about him. GOD he hates him. His hatred would also keep him up all night, trying to find new ways to get a rise out of Malik and piss him off. If there's ONE THING Garren's gonna do before he graduates, it's find a way to get Malik to yell at him! Man, Garren would want SO BADLY to make fun of Sam as well, and he'd have plenty of ammunition to do so... but. She's fucking HUGE. She could muller him if he looked at her wrong and he knows it. So he'd probably only pull his usual stunts when he knows she won't be able to retaliate, like in the classroom when the teacher has to leave or something. Boyd: "GODDAMNIT WHY ARE YOU SO FUCKING TALL AND GOOD AT BASKETBALL AND ALSO WHY AM I SO ATTRACTED BY IT WAIT SHIT DID I SAY THAT OUT LOUD." He's not very good at this.
