Lana Torres took off her jacket, feeling the heat beat down on her like a fist.
Well, she managed to get roped into this by twists and turns of fate. Might as well make it count. She hadn't seen too much Survivor; she wasn't a big reality TV fan. But she'd seen a few episodes here and there. And really, it wasn't a bad experience, being here. Who didn't want to be on a reality TV show? No one, actually. Sure, they could get silly and ridiculous, but she was pretty sure that was the point of reality TV.
Tying it around her waist and securing it with a firm tug, she stared up at Cammy, who was doing a similar action. Cammy Davidson, she remembered, was an insanely good member of the track team. She was also insanely peppy. Right now she was asking about... oh, shelter. That's right; they had to make it.
Lana looked around at her team mates.
Kat Tolstoff. Wasn't she that popular basketball star? Wasn't she friends with Millers?
On that note, Miranda Millers. Yeah, not much of a comment. Millers seemed kind of... well, she wasn't the nicest person around certainly.
And finally, Cassandra Black. Lana... didn't really know her that well, to be honest. She kind of came off as the studious type, based on the few glimpses of her she'd seen.
For the first time, Lana realized that their group was all female. Funny how that worked. Well, she guessed that it was time to show the other tribes the meaning of girl power.
And with that, Lana smiled.
Miranda Millers' arms were crossed, looking at the group in front of her.
Summary: Kat was a godsend and a lucky moment, Cammy could go to hell, and the other two... who were they again? Oh, right, the wrestling team captain and... Cassandra.
Long version: Miranda didn't like Cammy too much. Too peppy. And to be honest, she had always been a little jealous over how Cammy was able to be such a good track star. Seriously, was she taking steroids or something? Well, she must be on something, since she seemed so... happy about everything. Needless to say, Miranda was both envious and weirded out when it came to her.
Kat, thank god Kat was here. Really. It was so lucky they ended up in the same Tribe. The thoughts of an alliance still bubbled in her mind. It almost made up for having to deal with Cammy for a while, even! Seriously. She still was beaming a little inside at that.
The other two, Lana and Cassandra? Wasn't Lana deaf or something like that? But wasn't she also somewhat strong at least? Cassandra, meanwhile, came off as uptight based on what she knew of her. She really had no idea if they'd be in any way competent. Would they?
Cammy, of course, was practically bouncing in place once Kat had spotted the camp and they had made their way over. Soon enough, it turned to a discussion of shelter. Miranda agreed, shelter was important, though... she felt dumb for thinking this, but how would they get shelter up? She'd seen Survivor with some of her friends, certainly, but she was currently blanking on how to make a shelter. Wait, she remembered a bit now. First you make a frame, then you put leaves or something over them. Miranda wasn't particularly clear on this, but she could always ask the others, right?
"Well, yeah. Shelter's kind of important", Miranda said, a small smile forming on her face.
Cassandra began to suggest everyone split off; three on shelter, one on fire, and one for food. Something about magnifying glasses.
"Would that work, though?" she asked. "I know it works on ants. But does it work on wood?"
Coming to a V7 near you.

Roxanne "Roxie" Borowski- "Next video? Oh man, tons of ideas, dude. Lemme get the makeup for that."

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
- Anything else I missed
I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.
This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.
Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.
