Carol reached out to take Ben's hand to shake it, and replied back.
"Tea lady? So you guys have little tea parties?" she joked.
Carol stopped, and started again.
"Uh. Name's Carol, by the way."
She noticed that the tone in Reiko's voice seemed kind of... well, it did not seem pleasant, as if she did not want Ben to be around. Carol wondered what could have happened between these two. Did they get into a fight or something? Did they hate each other? Judging by Paige's comment, they were apparently dating. Either that, or it was some sort of sarcastic comment.
In either case, Reiko was barely even hiding the fact that something happened between them. Carol, if anything, did not want a fight to break out between the two, especially on her first day.
Okay, think Carol think! How can I defuse the situation between these two? I remember when my buddies back home got into fights... how did they make up? Think!
How could she prevent something from happening? Change the topic? Paige did not seem to know that it was not a good idea to ask them what was going on. So, now what? Just ask them a random question?
"Uh... hey" Carol said. "Is there anything fun in St. Paul?"
Oh god... was this the right thing to do? Just change the topic? That's it? Just move right along... try to make things a little better.... if an argument really did break out, she would be able to mediate it, right? It was not that hard.
Coming to a V7 near you.

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.
