    I originally wrote more, but dumped it because I was monolouging and couldn't see Violet just sitting there taking it. It was more or less her insinuating that Violet had toyed with Finn's emotions in order to try and make Mike jealous, then coerced Wolf into getting rid of Rose.

    I'm also having a difficult time with not having Sarah stop this. Violet and Sarah have acted friendly towards each other in the past--I could see Sarah standing up for Violet. I just don't want to turn this into hot NPC on NPC action. I don't wanna steal the scene from Violet.
    Of course since Mike basically threw away his friendship with Eve and Violet, so he could be with Rose, Rose can't really lose this argument. She can always toss that out as a possible motivation for Violet's actions, poisoning any argument Violet could make. Mike on the other hand has no problem sticking up for Rose, despite the fact she's cost him friends AND she makes no bones about being a total bitch at all times. Without some sort of back-up, Violet can't manage to come out even, much less with a social win...the deck is stacked against her. Even Finn, by only interceding when Violet responded, helps make Violet look like the "bad girl", even though it's Rose who's being the bully.

    Having Sarah end this by putting Rose to sleep doesn't help, because then Rose is the one who was victimized. Essentially, having Mike give the metaphorical finger to the girls who'd been his friends first puts Rose in a "no lose" situation. Unless she tries to hit on a guy who's already taken (Otso among active PC's still presently enrolled at NVAE) or tries to hit on a guy Violet is interested in and gets rebuffed, she'll always win this little social combat. The way the situation has been set up guarantees it.

      I had visions of Sarah punching Rose in the face, then taking a play from Steven's book and declaring, "What are you going to do? Hit the pregnant girl? Yeah, let's think about how that will look..."

        Mich is diabolical isn't he?

        And Kas may not consider himself taken but there are at least 2 girls enrolled at the school that would dispute that ;}

          By the end of this session, there is going to be a huge shift in the balance of power between Violet and Rose. I don't want to spoil anything, but it's good. Not strife-good, but good-good.

          In other news, I may be coming down with something. I feel feverish.

            Yeah...Astrid and Agnes are both more like celebrity stalkers than girls actually interested in a relationship. Astrid is fixated on Kas because he did help change her circumstances and didn't turn around and demand "payment in kind" and Agnes is fixated on Kas the way I imagine thousands of girls worldwide are fixated on various Vindicators. It's just she has a NS or Esper ability that allows her to take that fixation to a new, even creepier, level.

            Neither girl exactly screams "healthy relationship".

              If it makes you feel any better, it terrifies me that something good is going to happen to my character. That's the surest sign that doom is approaching

                I'm just waiting for a NS to arrive at school who is handsome, British, has many of the same interests as Vi (likes to go dancing, is a social animal, appreciates her dedication to gymnastics), leading them to hook up as the perfect couple.

                Then it's revealed that he's the younger cousin of Kiln and his fire powers and Violet's ice powers cause each other discomfort (though Vi doesn't actually sport a Vulnerability to fire attacks or Weakness to heat), but since she can accidentally lower the temp when she gets excited and he could accidentally raise it...well... y'know, Speeb-world problems.

                  Actually, Violet has a Vulnerable to Heat and Fire effects Drawback and a generic complication that she's very uncomfortable in high temperatures. It just hasn't come up yet and some of it is countered by the protections afforded by the Vindicators uniform.

                    ...and is infatuated with Mike!

                      Only because I believe PC's should get some measure of personal happiness to balance out all the horrible things they go through.

                        Oh my gosh! I spent most of the morning on a comprehensive post an the board ate it. Frustrating.

                              Okay, for better or worse, here we go on the character sketches. Remember, these are just what I envision in my head and may have nothing at all to do with how the character in question actually dresses for action.

                              Because I had a pretty clear idea of how I wanted her to look, we're starting with Shiver or Violet Lear if you prefer. I hope you like the pic Shock.

                                I've never been the one to win it all
                                To be the champion
                                I always get in my own way
                                But I get up again each time I fall
                                I keep on going
                                I guess that's all there is to me

                                Maybe they were right, maybe I was wrong
                                But I put up a fight, and
                                I feel like I'm right where I belong
                                Cause if you're next to me
                                That's all I really need
                                And we'll keep fighting on, We'll keep fighting on,
                                We'll keep fighting on
                                Long after the rest have wept and gone
                                We'll be fighting on, We'll keep fighting on
