Name: Alton Gerow
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Grade: Senior
School: George Hunter High School
Hobbies and Interests: Track, Parties and Socialization, Gossip, Math

Appearance: Alton is a tall, wiry young man, standing 6'1" and weighing 175 lbs. He has long limbs, and his legs especially are well-developed from his workouts and track activity, though even there he carries no real bulk. Alton has good posture and moves in a fluid manner; he tends to feel most comfortable in motion and will frequently pace, change positions, and punctuate his statements with gestures.

Alton's face is diamond-shaped, with a strong jaw line and chin. He's Caucasian, of mixed-southern-European descent with a strong Sicilian component, and his complexion is relatively tanned. He has curly, dark brown hair that he lets grow to about three inches in length; he takes good care of it, washing it daily. His eyes are light brown. Alton tends to smile or smirk often. His teeth are straight and fairly white—he brushes them every morning and evening. Alton's nose is straight and of typical size. He takes good care of his skin and almost never breaks out.

Alton pays attention to his appearance, trying to cultivate a casual but cultured look. He tends to wear well-fitted slacks or jeans, along with shirts that are slightly more formal than t-shirts but slightly less formal than business wear. On the day of the abduction, Alton was wearing skinny jeans, a black t-shirt, and a dark red button-down shirt left unbuttoned, with the sleeves rolled to the elbows. He was also wearing black socks, brown leather shoes, and an analogue watch on his right wrist. Alton is left-handed.

Biography: Alton (who also responds equally happily to "Al" and "Tony") was born on September 7, 1998, in Denton, New Jersey, to mother Pamela and father Kurt Gerrow. At the time, Pamela was unemployed and Kurt worked as a car salesman. The couple's relationship, already rather tumultuous, did not long survive the added pressure of a child and the corresponding jump in expenses and responsibilities. Kurt soon abandoned his wife and infant son, at first claiming he was on a work trip training employees in another state, then cutting contact. While Pamela did make use of those resources available to her to try to track down her wayward husband, she never brought Kurt back into their lives in any material way. The couple did eventually divorce and Kurt sent sporadic, often late or coerced child support, but for the most part Pamela raised Alton on her own, with some assistance from her brother (their own parents no longer being in contact with them as a result of a long-past family feud).

Pamela relied heavily on State assistance in this period, while also working a number of menial, usually short-term jobs. The neighborhood in which Alton grew up, Tilles Court, was a bad one, which rarely saw appropriate attention form the authorities. Thus, Denton—already rather infamous for its crime and gang violence—did not show Alton its best face during his formative years. He soon learned to stay away from the park at night, to keep to groups for safety, and to trust his instincts.

For all that, however, Alton managed a remarkably stable and functional early life. Naturally bright and social, he made friends easily in school and the state-funded daycare programs in which he spent much of his time. At the same time, his economically disadvantaged status led him to develop a somewhat pragmatic, transactional approach to friendship; if others wanted to be close to him, he'd prioritize those who could offer him what he did not get at home, usually treats of access to more expensive entertainment experiences.

Alton also learned early on the value of information., especially information related to his peers. If he was aware of who was prone to bullying in advance, he could avoid falling victim to them. If he knew who was comparatively well-off, he could court their friendship without being so gauche as to ask questions that implied his motivations. Alton also discovered that knowing what others did not gave him power, either to disclose that information or to withhold it. This was all just part of the lay of the land, much like knowing which parts of the neighborhood were bad news.

As Alton entered middle school, he found he could get out of a lot of schoolwork by talking his friends into doing it for him or allowing him to copy their work. This flew pretty well in the low-standards Denton school, especially as Alton performed just fine on tests; his tendency to delegate homework was due to poor motivation and frequent boredom on his part, not any lack of ability. One exception, however, was math. Alton found the objective nature of the subject fascinating and took a keen interest as something both antithetical to his normal, nuanced way of doing things and useful and widely applicable to myriad facets of his life. He put in real effort in the subject, treating it far more seriously than his other classes.

Alton also took up track around this time, finding it a good way to stay in shape and earn some measure of athletic credibility without the hassle of dealing with teammates directly. He found his build well-suited to running, and also enjoyed the movement and relative solitude of it, often taking long jogs throughout the city.

Alton's life took a sharp turn in the middle of his eighth grade year. Pamela had played the lottery casually for years, never with anything of note to show for it, but to her shock she won a substantial jackpot in Powerball, becoming a multimillionaire overnight even after taxes were factored out. While many in such situations soon go bankrupt again due to living beyond their means, Pamela had cultivated an almost compulsive frugality, and immediately hired an accountant and arranged their affairs such that she and Alton could live on interest and minimal withdrawals from their savings. She also relocated the pair to Chattanooga, Tennesse, a destination picked due to a childhood fascination with the song "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and related high expectations for the city. While the reality was not quite the romantic image of her childhood, she nonetheless greatly enjoyed her new upper-middle-class lifestyle, taking the opportunity to date again and to explore a long-neglected interest in painting.

The move was slightly harder on Alton at first, though he showed little external sign of this. In his final semester of middle school going into his first year at George Hunter High School, he had to recalibrate his expectations of his school, classmates, and environment in a pretty major way. What had once been in part coping mechanisms for dealing with a rough environment were no longer needed, but Alton's habits and impulses remained all the same. He made some effort to change his approach to the world, but found it an unnatural fit, and he was soon back to many of his old patterns—now, however, for his enjoyment more than anything else.

Using his easy charm and the intrigue he held as a new student, Alton quickly established a reputation and friend group, and he learned all he could about his new classmates. He scouted his peers at first by adopting a persona of newcomer ignorance, and later through more direct queries. He joined the track team (where he was good but not exceptional) and the math club (where he was a somewhat odd fit), and integrated smoothly on the whole, finding himself able to work his way into the zone where he could be friends with those both in and outside of the popular circle.

Alton's friendships are still transactional to a degree, but he no longer has any interest in the finances of others—indeed, he is given a generous allowance and has access upon request to a fairly substantial amount of resources through his mother, who is in her way trying to make up for his underprivileged early years. What Alton seeks out in closer companions is an element of the unique, some edge to keep him interested and entertained. He likes to go on adventures around town with his friends, usually of the sort that entails going to parties or getting into mild trouble.

In school, Alton is a good student, but not an amazing one, and some of his grades are still due to unauthorized assistance. He does well in classes with a creative component, as well as in math; his worst classes are science classes, as he lacks major interest in them and they're hard to fake his way through. He's fairly popular among teachers for being an active and charming participant, and his test scores remain high. Alton has not applied to any colleges yet—he's not sure that route is best for him and plans to take a gap year even if he ultimately decides that it is. His mother fully supports his taking time to figure out what he wants to do with his life.

Alton is social and easygoing, quite adept at reading situations and managing his own role within them. At the same time, he's prone to pressuring others to do what he wants, and is very talented at this. On a number of occasions, this has led to resentment, as others are left to take the fall for Alton or come to regret their actions after the fact or become more aware of his coercive nature. On those rare occasions Alton himself takes offense, often on behalf of a friend, he becomes serious indeed, dedicating himself to a certain measure of usually-delayed-and-creative retribution. This has generally ensured that those enemies he makes remain such in the long run, often with strong negative feelings towards him.

Alton's relationship with his mother is strong and positive. He's very open with her, unlike with many others, and always does his best to make her proud. This is not an overly high bar; Pamela still feels a lot of regret over some of the circumstances of Alton's early life, and is thrilled that he is generally successful in school and happy with his situation. They often go to dinner, concerts, and sporting events together, and their relationship has in some ways moved towards an equality-based dynamic more than one of parent and child. Alton has no contact with his father, and is perfectly happy with this; he holds some major resentment towards the man and was thrilled when his mother's windfall allowed them to finally and completely sever contact with Kurt.

Alton has dated a number of girls in school and has a reputation as a bit of a playboy; this is to an extent justified, as he's quick to move on when his interest wanes. Some of his exes are more understanding of this than others, but Alton is in all romantic cases pretty careful not to promise what he does not intend to deliver; abandonment by partners is an issue he has a lot of baggage with. Alton considers himself heterosexual, but is also unbothered enough by the subject and confident enough in himself to jokingly flirt with other men as well—something else that has rubbed others the wrong way from time to time.

Alton drives a red Toyota Celica from the mid-1990s, a gift from his mother for his sixteenth birthday, and loves giving rides to friends. He's also a frequent source for alcohol, being fairly versed in charming or bluffing his way through ID checks and enlisting the assistance of others of age. Other drugs, however, hold little appeal for Alton, and he can be particularly dismissive of marijuana.

Advantages: Alton is charming and clever. He knows a lot about his classmates and can likely be a good judge of character, as well as putting a face to most names. He's in good shape from his time on the track team.
Disadvantages: Alton is not one to sit idle or play things safe; risk-taking is second nature to him and that won't be easy to change even when the potential consequences are more dire than he's accustomed to. He can be pushy and has a number of people who don't care for him due to this; it's also potential trouble when negotiating. When Alton does develop a grudge, he has an extremely hard time letting go of it.

Mikki Swift is the serious kind of musician and sometimes refers to herself as that (by which she means she's going to move to LA once school is finished and suck up to music producers in order to get an internship) so she is not that big a fan of ICP - however, she admires Phillip's passion for them and while she's not particularly the type who would hang out with him outside of class or the odd lunchtime, she would definitely take time out of her day to listen to him speak about ICP since he's very knowledgeable about it.

Name: Sven Alexandria Bartholomew "Library" Vee
Gender: Male
Age: 19
Grade: Senior
School: George Hunter High School
Hobbies and Interests: Art (making and viewing), Yoga, Meditation, Philosophy, Go

Appearance: Sven stands at 5'10" and weighs 190 lbs, leaving him roughly average in height and slightly heavyset. His build is a bit stocky. Sven has dark brown hair that falls to a bit below his shoulders; he usually wears it tied back to keep it out of his face. His eyes are dark brown, and close inspection reveals that his left eye is glass. Sven tends to wear sunglasses where vaguely appropriate to disguise this fact. His face is round and his nose large, showing evidence of having been broken. The left side of Sven's face is badly scarred, but he grows out his facial hair to hide this; he usually sports a full, neatly-trimmed beard.

Sven dresses in an understated fashion, favoring blue jeans, and long-sleeved shirts. On the day of the abduction, he was wearing dark blue jeans, a dark green and chartreuse plaid flannel shirt, black shoes, brown-lensed square-framed sunglasses. black shoes, and a hemp bracelet.

Biography: Born on December 12, 1998, to Sally and Thomas Vee, a pair of middle class retail executives, Sven had a fairly easy childhood. His family's financial situation left his parents able to see all his needs met, and while sometimes they parked him with extended family or a babysitter, they always made sure to also give him direct and personal attention. Even at an early age, however, it became clear that the two had conflicting ideas of who they wanted Sven to be. Thomas favored a more traditionally masculine role for his son, exposing him to sports and dressing him in blue. Sally, on the other hand, was keen to cultivate sensitivity and intellect in Sven, and it was her tendencies which ultimately won out. Sven did not take easily to athletics, spending longer than many of his peers working out a residual childhood clumsiness. When it came to language and expression, however, he was far ahead of the curve.

This led to Sven establishing a somewhat unconventional role in the social hierarchy of elementary school. Where he might have been picked on for his introspective nature and disinterest in what most of the other boys cared about, thanks to his father's tutelage he was able to talk the lingo when he had to. He held little interest in the pursuits of his nerdier peers; science fiction and fantasy struck him as childish. Sven was fascinated by the ability of art—especially visual art—to communicate, however, particularly due to how those communications could often be veiled or coded. Sven proved adept at a wide range of art, but especially realist drawings and paintings. He received much praise for his talents, both from his school and from Sally, though he always aspired to improve; measuring himself against his favorite works, he invariably found something lacking. He dabbled in other forms on and off, but his favored medium remained constant.

As Sven grew, he soon developed a somewhat chubby figure, due to a distaste for exercise combined with a hearty appetite. This was cause for concern to Thomas, who for a time pushed Sven hard to improve his activity. This resulted in a number of clashes between the two, with Sven feeling unfairly criticized and unable to improve. Finally, Sally brokered a compromise, in which Sven agreed to sign up for a physical activity three times a week; the activity he chose, however, was yoga, selected for its relatively solitary and low-cardio nature. Sven soon found that he actually did enjoy yoga, which gave him structure yet room to think and improved his flexibility. While Sven and his father still clashed over his health periodically, the token effort did at least a little to temper their conflicts, and Sven has kept with yoga ever since.

An offshoot of this has been an interest in meditation, and later in philosophy. Sven came to meditation through exposure at the ends of his yoga classes, and enjoyed how it offered him an opportunity to mentally reset and cleanse himself. By increasing his awareness of himself, the universe, and his place within the order of things, he was able to better come to terms with his arguments with his father, and also to better accept what he could and could not change about himself and others. Sven has done fairly extensive research into different meditative and philosophical traditions, but does not subscribe to any single path; he picks favorite aspects from the traditions he studies and assimilates them into the loose, liberal quasi-Christianity shared by his family (while they consider themselves Christian, all have drifted from active practice, only attending church sporadically on holidays).

For most of middle and high school, Sven had an easygoing but intense demeanor; he was content to drift through most interactions, but when his areas of interest came up tended to debate and expound with great passion. It was during middle school that Sven earned his nickname, "Library." His history class touched on the Library of Alexandria, and a classmate drew a connection to one of Sven's middle names and began to refer to him as such. His restrained and bookish nature made the moniker somewhat apt, and while it's not universally used and Sven is actually somewhat ambivalent about it, it's carried through to turn up even in some of his high school circles.

Sven's friend group was primarily a close circle of other artists with a philosophical bent. Outside of school, Sven tended towards a generally restrained set of activities; much of his free time was spent in study, personal readings, or the creation of art—a solitary activity for Sven, who quickly determined that collaborative projects were not up his alley. His grades were good; he was not at the top of his class, but sat in the next tier down. While naturally inclined towards academics, Sven still put a lot of effort and study into his achievements. He was prone to bursts of inspiration in his art as well, frequently sacrificing sleep in favor of study or his creations.

This came to a head during the second semester of his junior year. Sven had borrowed his mother's car for a study meeting with a friend, after failing to sleep the night before. While driving home, he drifted off at the wheel for a few seconds, awakening as the car slid off the road. He was unable to regain control in time to avoid colliding with a large tree, totalling the car and sustaining severe injuries, concentrated primarily along the left side of his body, which was lacerated and partially crushed by a large branch. Sven lay there, half-conscious, for some time before paramedics arrived and pulled him from the wreck. Ultimately, the accident resulted in a severe concussion, whiplash, the loss of Sven's left eye, and a number of breaks and severe cuts to Sven's arm, ribs, face, and leg.

Sven spent long months in recovery following the accident, dealing with the physical, mental, and social fallout. The healing process took Sven out of school for long enough that he ended up having to repeat his junior year, which served to separate him from a number of his friends. Further, his injuries caused him significant mobility issues at first, and he required intensive physical therapy to return to a vague semblance of normalcy; he's still slower and weaker than most of his peers, and prone to pain from overexertion. The loss of an eye was also devastating to Sven's artwork. With hindered depth perception and manual dexterity, he found himself forced several steps backwards, unable to even see the world in the same way he used to. Sven knew that many of the philosophies he followed would urge him to accept his situation and move on, but found himself unable to do so—instead, he attempts to view his impairment as a challenge to overcome, though his success at maintaining this mentality is sporadic at best.

Far more severe has been the mental repercussions of the accident. Sven was horribly traumatized by what he experienced, and also sustained a notable head injury. He has grappled ever since with PTSD, which tends to manifest as episodes of dissociation and derealization. In the grips of one of these spells, Sven will often experience a disconnect between mind and body, feeling as though he is watching someone else move rather then doing so himself and sometimes experiencing the delusion that he is not in control of his own actions, instead guided by some unknowable outside force. Sven is in therapy for these issues, attending sessions multiple times a week and working with grad students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to try to understand and mitigate his symptoms. His interest in meditation and mindfulness has allowed him some progress in at least recognizing and sometimes anticipating attacks, though he still frequently attempts to isolate himself until they pass; he's a regular visitor to the nurse's office at George Hunter.

Sven is to a degree wracked by guilt and frustration over the accident. He realizes how easily things could have turned out far worse, but also feels that one moment of weakness and carelessness has permanently altered his life. He's still fascinated by art, but has tended towards darker interpretations, often stretching further than he did previously and coming across as more dogmatic in his discussions. Sven's friend group has also undergone some notable shifts, particularly when it comes to those who fall outside the norm. Others facing trauma of an uncommon nature, suffering rare diseases, and so forth tend to serve as triggers for episodes of derealization for Sven, as he gets caught up in probabilities and is left unable to accept the reality of his situation. Sven also spends much less time with his artistic friends, though he still feels quite warmly towards them; he struggles with a measure of jealousy and self-doubt when comparing himself to them, and prefers to avoid such feelings if possible.

Sven's demeanor changed notably due to the accident and what followed. Where he'd always been quiet, he now found himself staying silent not out of some tranquility but from a desire to avoid notice. His friends had also mostly been in his own class or the year ahead of him, so he found himself socially isolated among the younger students. His grades slipped, and at times he came close to failing classes, buoyed only by disability concessions and an understanding faculty. All of this further weighed on his mind, and played a role in a number of depressive episodes. While he'd planned to go to college immediately after high school, Sven now intends to put that on hold indefinitely. At the age he'd planned to be a freshman, he is instead struggling with the final months of his senior year, and doesn't want to pretend his life is anywhere near on track.

One point of comfort for Sven has been his discovery of and passionate focus on the game Go. Initially something he took up with a fellow patient in the hospital to pass the time, Sven found that the game gave him a good opportunity to focus his mind without featuring overly complicated rules or movements; he can usually teach others the basics in short order, and playing provides him a structured social experience with a veneer of normalcy, without evoking his pre-trauma life.

Sven's parents were both supportive of him following the accident, but in different ways. his mother was first and foremost worried about him, but with an edge of disappointment underlying that worry. This was aimed in part at Sven's future prospects, but in part at himself and his irresponsible decisions. Thomas, on the other hand, was angry, but never at Sven. He became much more involved in Sven's life, driving him wherever he wanted (Sven won't even consider attempting to relearn how to drive) and talking with him at length. For the first time, Thomas took a constant and active interest in his son's hobbies and thoughts, often spending hours playing Go with him while listening to him muse about philosophy. Sven has thus become slightly distanced from his mother due to the unspoken but omnipresent tension, but much closer and more open towards the man he spent so much of his childhood fighting.

Advantages: Sven is smart and has significant experience calming himself down due to his meditation. He has already experienced a larger than average amount of suffering and tragedy, leaving himself more aware of his processes in the face of dire situations than most are. He is a relatively unknown quantity to most of his class, due to his friends mostly having been in higher grades, and has no real enemies.
Disadvantages: Sven is still suffering significant mental and physical repercussions from his accident. He's blind in one eye and his strength and dexterity on the left side of his body are compromised. He suffers from PTSD-related dissociation and derealization, episodes of which could prove catastrophic in a situation such as SOTF. Sven lacks a wide friend group and may be assumed easy pickings due to his injuries, which are common knowledge around school and indeed all that some students know about him.

Juliette & Lavender: Lucas would have flirted/asked them out at some point. Boy loves his ladies. So he could have dated either of them at some point if they are receptive of his flirtation. Lucas tries to be on good terms with his exes, so I imagine they'd still be friends after the relationship ends. Of course, Lucas is in need of a girlfriend for pregame, so if you need one of them to have a boyfriend I am willing to provide Lucas to fill that role.

Juliette: Could be friends with Sierra. Maybe she saw Sierra being her cold distant self and tried to get to know her to help cheer her up. Sierra tends to warm up to people who stick around and get to know her. Or maybe Sierra pushed her away with her attitude.

Alton: Would know Sierra from the George Hunter party scene, and would probably get along pretty well since she loves to chum it up with scoundrel types. Maybe exes? Also, Lucas is a chill enough guy and would probably be cool with him. Also, he'd have Alton get him booze to fuel his adolescent alcoholism.

Library: Lucas enjoys viewing art and discussing it intelligently, so maybe they can be art buddies/acquaintances?

Those are my ideas, let me know what ya think.

She also realized during middle school that she's bisexual, but has not shared this with anyone or explored it in any material way. While Juliette's own parental figures are all largely apolitical and she suspects they would be accepting, she's concerned about the reactions of others in her community and is also concerned about the potential implications for her ambitions. As such, while she's not totally happy about it, she's more or less content to present herself as straight.

Still need to figure out Library and Phillip, though, so fair cop there. ><

@Lord: I could see room for Juliette and/or Lavender to have dated Lucas in the past--Juliette's probably a lot less receptive to the horror thing and the alcohol thing so I can't see anything there lasting too long, though could definitely be a couple dates and then a fizzle.

Juliette isn't necessarily on the same page as Sierra in terms of style/vibe, but also tries to be on good terms with everyone and likely wouldn't be turned off were it clear there isn't direct malice going on from the other girl's side; I could see room for an odd, opposites-attract friendship.

Alton would totally be down to be a good-terms ex of Sierra's and to help orchestrate the flow of alcohol into Lucas.

Library would be totally down to chat art with Lucas, and Goya would be a very interesting subject for discussion; there's a certain degree of sympathy Library can feel for his changing style as the Black Paintings came into being.

Sounds all good to me! I'm cool with Sierra and Juliette having some sort of odd couple friendship. 'Cause I absolutely love it when people who you wouldn't expect to be friends turn out to be friends. :3

Sounds great to me. Replying for more than just bumping this thread, definitely.

Also, Ryuki: I'm so sorry I failed to reply. Library would love to do Go and chat with Yuki. Might get a bit weirded by her sibling situation, though.

I believe!! In adding even more posts to your relationship thread!! So here are some specific ideas I had on look through!!

Juliette -
Gyu-ri : Gyu-ri's reputation for being bellicose might have drawn Juliette's friendly ambitions at some point? Gyu-ri probably wouldn't respond particularly well to Juliette if she tried to be a friendly/helpful presence, but she'd otherwise have nothing in particular against her. The two could also have something to talk about in terms of veteran's issues and politics, like in the local navy office and such, such things might have come up on Juliette's radar and Gyu-ri would make a good soundboard for discussion/debate. Also, as a source of gossip. So roughly approximating as slightly unfriendly acquaintances.
Joanne : Both being popularish activist types, albeit in different lanes, they might be casually friendly. Joanne of course comes off as none-too bright so their conversations can only go so far, but Juliette's probably won Joanne's tentative support as a school politician.

Alton -
Charelle : Still rooting for us to formalize that these two had a party-based fling in the context of your super secret thread plans and ideas and stuff!
Beryl : He'd probably appreciate her as a friend for her brand of friendly oddity, given his current relationships (like Dante and Sierra) she seems like the type who could give him an interesting story and adventure or two roaming around town and doing weird stuff. Might have met in math club or the like. He could also casually manipulate her into being useful in science classes they might share, essentially no effort involved since she's easy to push around.
Joanne : Likewise met around the party scene. She's good at knowing the best spots to eat at around town, so she might be part of his roaming squad on the periphery or such. She might need him as a source of her alcohol. Maybe she nurses a bit of an active crush on him as of Pregame?

Lavender -
Joanne : Kindred spirits politically so Lavender definitely earned Joanne's sympathy and respect. Probably just general good will exists here and not too much in the way of specific friendship, their circles seem far enough split apart.
Beryl : More of an out of school relationship in that they probably meet on the shooting range fairly often! Beryl and her guardian are both known to be outspokenly gun control types so they might be a bit frosty but they can probably do a little bit of friendly rivalry while there are targets in front of them and such.

Library -
Beryl : Yoga and stuff! He actually seems to have a similar sort of spiritual pick-and-choose style that Beryl has, so I definitely think they'd have a fairly strong aspect of kindred spirits going for them. Artists with a philosophical bend, especially since she'd know when to leave him alone and when not. Perhaps they drifted apart after the accident, to some significant degree. Beryl being a narcoleptic and his former decently close and spiritually attuned friend probably triggers him pretty acutely, he might just see her occasionally since she's interested in learning Go from him but he otherwise keeps her at an awkward distance.
Gyu-ri : This one's a bit out there and doesn't really establish a proper relationship between the two of them, but I'd like to run it by you as a possibility. During his accident it could have been possible that Gyu-ri was the first civilian responder who alerted the paramedics proper. She failed to do anything about it, frozen by knowledge that she was not properly trained to handle the situation, and that would be a huge chip on her shoulder, personally, to this day. Though she might have visited in the hospital some, given her involvement and personal hangups concerning what happened? As fellow board game aficionados perhaps she remains sort of in his orbit after the fact, playing Go with him.

Phillip -
Ramsey : The way Phillip tries to sell ICP he might actually have gotten Ramsey to some extent. Ramsey would still think it's pretty stupid and weird but he'd go along with it with something of an open mind. No intent on actually joining Juggalo culture at large, it strictly ends with his interest in the music that they can chat about every now and then.

Apologies for the delay!

Cicada:

Juliette might well try to be friendly/helpful to Gyu-ri, but if that didn't work at first she'd shift things up a bit and default to a more neutral stance, Juliette would probably appreciate her helpful nature and accomplishments, but not get too terribly close due to her attitude.

Juliette would definitely have political things to discuss with Joanne, though possibly more the process than the specifics of any given policy. If Joanne's not getting too in-depth, though, that shouldn't be a terribly giant problem.

Alton would be down with some sort of something with Charelle, as discussed elsewhere.

He'd also be down for some weirdness with Beryl, and certainly if she'd be ever so kind as to give him a hand with his science work every so often.

He'd certainly hook Joanne up, and is always glad to have some folks in the wings as friends/acquaintances/swooners.

Lavender would definitely count Joanne a political ally, though might be somewhat exasperated by her method of communication; loudness has a time and a place and deployed carelessly can be worse than ineffective.

She'd definitely be intrigued by Beryl and have a lot to talk about when out shooting; familiarity would likely lend itself to polite disagreement.

I'd love to do something with Library and Beryl--I think they could have some good vibes while also maybe having some areas of push and pull, at least on his end post accident. I think there's a good scene to be had there.

I'd be down for stuff with Gyu-ri so long as it can be spun in such a way as doesn't strain credibility; perhaps they were even coming from the same place and that's why she was there?

Phillip would love to chat ICP with Ramsey and might also be a good sort to bounce oddities of faith off of as he finds his own in part through violent clown rap.
