Hey guys! Once your character is accepted, please post the relationships that they have with all of the other characters, here. I'll include a simple coded list of all of the characters, for you to work with. Additionally, in order to ensure that no one has any excuses for feeling left out, there's some predetermined, set relationships that we'll have too! You can find those below. If any of them seem really off and against how you envisioned your character, please PM me or predictmeifyoucan and we'll try to work something out with you!

The King Bee
  • He has been dating the Queen Bee since the middle of freshman year. Their relationship is far from perfect, though they don't show that on the outside, and both parties have cheated on each other, with both being aware of that.
  • He slept with The Traitor this summer.
  • His twin sister is The Free Spirit

The Queen Bee
  • She has been dating the King Bee since the middle of freshman year. Their relationship is far from perfect, though they don't show that on the outside, and both parties have cheated on each other, with both being aware of that.
  • This summer, she had an extended fling with The Leader, though no one aside from The Traitor, The Overachiever, and The King Bee know that.
  • Her most trusted friends are The Drama Queen, The Overachiever, and The Traitor, though the extent of those relationships aren't always equal.

The Drama Queen
  • She hangs out with The Sweetheart quite often, using him as a personal therapist.
  • Her twin sister is The Rebel, and her "stepsister" is The Bookworm.

The Overachiever
  • She has a crush on The Entrepreneur, but has failed to act on it outside of bickering where sexual tension is obvious, because she knows that would be enough to destroy her reputation.
  • She dated The Sweetheart for a few months during freshman year.
  • Her oldest friendship is with The Traitor, and she's always been friends with The Queen Bee, but has grown increasingly close with her this past summer, much to The Traitor's dismay.

The Charmer
  • He's cousins with The King Bee and The Free Spirit.
  • He bullied The Class Clown pretty consistently when they were younger.
  • He was once very close with The Party Animal, but dropped him as a friend when everyone else did.

The Sweetheart
  • He has a crush on The Traitor.
  • He dated The Overachiever for a few months during freshman year.
  • He and The Entrepreneur got in a physical fight over the summer, after The Sweetheart claims he saw The Entrepreneur trying to drug one of his friend's drinks. The Entrepreneur denies the claim.

The Traitor
  • She slept with The King Bee over the summer, and has feelings for him.
  • She is supposed to be close friends with The Queen, but feels betrayed in recent years, and is considering seeking revenge.
  • She had a fling with The Party Animal, and drunkenly vented to him about problems within her circle and how strongly she dislikes the Queen Bee, over the summer. She barely remembered it the next day, but to this day, he won't let her live it down, though luckily he's kept his mouth shut about it publicly.

The Leader
  • He had a fling with The Queen Bee this summer, but wishes that it could become more than just that.
  • He dislikes the King Bee for various reasons.
  • He dislikes most of The Queen Bee's girl friends, because he thinks they'd disapprove of her being seen with him, if they ever were to become a real item.

The Bookworm
  • Her "aunt" married The Rebel and The Drama Queen's father this past June, and she's been living with them since.
  • Surprisingly, she has found a good friend in The Entrepreneur.
  • She tutors The Class Clown and The Sweetheart.

The Class Clown
  • He's struggled to accept his sexuality, and has only admitted to being involved with girls, like The Rebel, but he's also messed around with The Party Animal, and unadmittedly prefers that.
  • Despite seeming like a very modest and religious woman, his mother is currently engaged in an affair with The Charmer's father. The Class Clown knows about this, but The Charmer doesn't.
  • He's beginning to get annoyed with how much time The Entrepreneur seems to spend with The Bookworm, even if it's petty. He and The Entrepreneur are friendly enough, but he's close with The Bookworm, and doesn't want to see her corrupted.

The Rebel
  • Her father married The Bookworm's "aunt", so they're "stepsisters". She is The Drama Queen's twin sister.
  • She has a tendency of hitting on The Entrepreneur when drunk, but surprisingly, he hasn't taken advantage of her drunken insistence that they sleep together yet.

The Party Animal
  • He has hooked up with The Traitor, The Rebel and The Class Clown.
  • The Charmer was his best friend during childhood, so he resents him the most for cutting him off after things went south.
  • He has considered trying to seduce The Free Spirit into a one night stand, just to be able to rub it The King Bee and The Charmer's faces, out of spite, but he hasn't brought himself to do it.

The Free Spirit
  • She's fascinated with, and maybe even crushing, on The Party Animal
  • Despite her brother's long-standing (though sometimes shaky) infatuation with The Queen Bee, she has never gotten along with her.
  • Her twin brother is The King Bee.

The Entrepreneur
  • He has does business (in different forms) with The King Bee, The Drama Queen, The Free Spirit, The Leader, The Class Clown, The Party Animal, The Rebel, The Charmer, and The Sweetheart
  • He's into The Overachiever, and is certain he'll finally win her over with his wit this year.
  • He hangs out with The Bookworm quite frequently.

"O.J's pretty good, and so is Olivia."

Well, to begin with, they weren't very close. But during a class, they began to vibe with each other and they started to hang out. They got coffee often, went to movies, Cass thoroughly enjoyed her company. He often seems to go to her when Naya is unavailable, and his family seems to assume they're dating. Cass doesn't stop them though, he simply covered himself with it by saying he just doesn't want to date. So she agreed to pretend to be his girlfriend.

Like almost everyone else at the schools, Cass has used his services, but he doesn't really like the whole idea of Brody. He simply doesn't truly enjoy how Brody seems to be a negative influence, especially on the one person in his life he can trust.
It tends to result in arguments between the two, but Cass simply doesn't like Brody's influence on Naya. He would rather him be there to keep an eye on the male, which is what he does.

Cass isn't fond of himself, partially because he doesn't want to admit his own sexuality. Due to how his brother was treated by his parents, he's afraid to live life as himself. He's only told his closest friend and the girl he slept with and made them swear not to tell anyone. He doesn't really hate himself, but he doesn't like himself very well.

Adeline definitely qualifies for the role of being Sydney's best friend. They've known each other since they were little children, and have been close for all of these years. Adeline is the sweetest, most lovable pain in the ass that Sydney has in her life. Sometimes Sydney may come across as being impatient or cold towards Adeline, but it's only because they're close enough where she can be. They have sister-like tendencies at this point, where sometimes tough love needs to be implemented. That's what Sydney believes, at least, though sometimes, it's probably likely that she tells herself that to avoid feeling guilty about being selfish and cruel in certain situations. One thing is true without argument though, and that's that Sydney would never let anyone hurt this girl. She would take a bullet for Adeline and loves her like family.

Sydney and Olivia aren't the best friends in the world, as they just have incompatible personalities, but they definitely are good friends. They hang out with the same type of people and Olivia makes sure that their relationship is a good one. SHe doesn't need the Queen Bee herself on her bad side.

Milo and Olivia dated in the summer before sophomore year. The relationship was never really meaningful, the two were only really physically attracted to each other. Olivia realized that Milo still had feelings for someone else, and that she herself was not as invested as she thought she was. They ended the relationship mutually, with no hard feelings, and are still good friends today. Olivia knows that she can go to Milo if she needs anything.

Image
The King Bee

Explanation.


Image
The Queen Bee

Naya wouldn't say that she was terrified of Sydney Persson. That's dramatic. But she can't deny being just a little scared of her, intimidated being the better word. And why not? Sydney is absolutely gorgeous, intelligent, confident beyond measure, and sure Naya doesn't agree with everything she's heard that Sydney has said and done, nor the things Sydney stands for - but it's also not like she's about to be the first one to say that she disagrees with Sydney. In fact, she likes that she's managed to stay off the blonde's radar. As long as Sydney doesn't bother her, Naya doesn't see any reason to be bothered too much by anything that Sydney does. It just seems like a waste of time and energy, especially when she isn't even a factor in the blonde's world.


Image
The Charmer

Explanation.


Image
The Overachiever

It's probably still a developing relationship considering the two aren't as close because of their differing social statuses, but Naya considers Olivia a pretty good friend. What started off as two girls working really well together became two girls creating a YouTube channel over this past summer. It's a side project that's definitely helped in de-stressing Olivia and making Naya want to become more outgoing, but she's pretty sure the changes are also because of their relationship. They may not hang out all the time, but Naya definitely appreciates their friendship.


Image
The Entrepreneur

Explanation.


Image
The Drama Queen

Naya is more than a little wary of now having to be in the same home twenty-four-seven with Adeline Arnault, not because she's afraid that Adeline will physically do anything to her...at least, she hopes that's not what's going to happen. Initially, she knew they weren't close. All Naya did was tutor the girl a few times last year and she knew that they didn't have much in common. It was fine, though, because she had one Arnault and that was all she needed. But then Grace and Bernard announced their engagement, which was shocking for all kids involved, but Adeline definitely made Naya feel wary before the wedding. She was actually surprised when she found out that Adeline was being sent to a facility during the wedding preparations, and genuinely wanted to see her when Charlotte offered to bring her along on a visit. Adeline had been trying at best during their tutoring sessions, but she could be endearing and Naya had clung to that. It didn't even matter that Adeline had pissed her off that very last time. The girl was struggling at the time in ways Naya hadn't known. Luckily, things worked...the first time. However, when the whole family came - including Adeline's new step-mother and her father - Adeline was a completely different person and to this day, Naya is unsure how things are going to be from now on. She may be a patient person, but even she has her limits and she feels like every single day in this household with this girl is going to be a test she's not sure she'll pass.


Image
The Class Clown

Explanation.


Image
The Rebel

If there is one thing Naomi has to feel grateful for during the transition process of their families merging and her moving into the Arnault home, it's that she has at least one ally in the household, regardless of what Adeline might have to say on the matter. Naya and Charlotte were already friends before Grace and Bernard started seeing one another and Naya has found comfort in already having someone she was pretty close to before all of this began. It almost is starting to feel natural to walk down the hall and know that she can be headed to Charlotte's room. At least there she'll know she's cared for.


Image
The Leader

Explanation.


Image
The Free Spirit

Naya is pretty sure that she's probably one of the few things keeping Alaina and Charlotte from getting into as much trouble as they could. Then again, they're probably the main reason why you might - though very rarely - get to put Naya and trouble in the same sentence. Alaina makes her laugh in all her weirdness and Naya adores her just as much as she adores Charlotte. She's just also certain, as much as she can never not smile in their presences, that Alaina - much like the other Arnault twin - is going to give Naya gray hairs before she even hits twenty.

β•š xxxxxxxxxxxTHE DRAMA QUEENxxxxxxxxxxx ╝
Image
The King Bee

Adeline definitely isn't AJ's biggest fan. She's one of the few people that knows of the turmoil that exists in his relationship with Sydney, and as any good friend would do, she automatically sides with Sydney. She's convinced that Sydney could do better than him and is one of the people who actively try to convince Sydney of that. She has never had any personal problems with AJ, but she does have a tendency to act dismissively and coldly towards Adeline, just because she feels like he needs to know that he isn't approved of, and he isn't as well-liked by everyone as he thinks he is. Plus, Adeline is a drama queen, so she wouldn't be herself without blowing things out of proportion and being unfair sometimes.
Image
The Overachiever
relationship
Image
The Queen Bee

Sydney has been Adeline's best friend for as long as she can remember. While she definitely feels like Sydney can be mean, their relationship isn't as "leader and minion" like as people like to make it. There is a genuine bond between them that's nearly as strong as a sisterhood at this point. Adeline trust Sydney more than anyone else in her life, probably, and thinks of the blonde as being a beautiful, intelligent, powerful, and well-meaning person. She recognizes that Sydney does things differently than her... and also that the girl can turn her emotions off with a second's notice, which is something that Adeline definitely can not relate to, but she loves Sydney, flaws and all.

Image
The Traitor

Admittedly, Adeline probably never would have became friends with Esme, had she not been accepted into their clique by Sydney and the others. She's not typically bold enough on her own to break the social hierarchy, so while she would have appreciated that Esme was pretty and probably worthy of being in their social media pictures, she never would have been the one to make an early effort to befriend her. It's a good thing that the others did though, because she likes Esme now. Even if she tends to get a bad rap for not being the most personable person, that isn't true when it comes to her friends. With her friends, Adeline is loving, bubbly and doting, and Esme hasn't become an exception to that. She's pretty oblivious to any chance that Esme isn't as genuine as she seems (which isn't that big of a statement, since Esme isn't transparent in that to begin with), but overall, Adeline is just a very trusting person once she sees you as a friend.
Image
The Entrepreneur

Adeline doesn't dislike Brody. In fact, she found him to be quite useful last year when she started abusing Ritalin and Adderall to aid in her weight loss quest. However, her relationship with him is one that she has, and plans on, keep a secret. She doesn't need people knowing that she does business with a guy known for his sketchiness, because what she's buying from him isn't as accepted as fake IDs or tickets to sold out concerts. It's more personal and not something that she wants anyone to even think to ask about, and so as far as anyone else knows, she has no relationship with Brody.
Image
The Bookworm

Before their parents got married, Adeline probably could have admitted that Naomi was an alright person. She was nice enough to tutor her and actually help, up until she couldn't take Adeline anymore (understandably). Even after the engagement, she was tolerant and made an effort to be nice to Adeline, which Adeline knows she needs to appreciate. However, it's hard to think about any of that now that she's in a mindset where she's convinced that Naomi and Grace have singe-handedly ruined her family and that Naya's only purpose now is to act as a second person to gang up on her with Charlotte. Simply put, Naya is definitely going to be one of the people who has and will see why Adeline has earned the title of Drama Queen.
Image
The Leader
Image
The Rebel

It's worth preempting their current relationship by stating that Charlotte is Adeline's twin sister. They're blood, and simply because of that, Adeline will always love her and feel perturbed if anyone else tries to insult or criticize her in the way that she does, herself. With that said, their current relationship is more hate than love, in what's a more extreme version of your typical sibling love-hate relationship. In a few words, the two of them fight more than they don't when they're interacting, and honestly, it's been like that for a while now. Adeline dislikes Charlotte's sarcastic, crude and demeaning sense of humor, and Charlotte probably doesn't appreciate the victim mentality that Adeline constantly totes around. Most of their fights are petty and over the stupidest of things that you'd never imagine could cause the ruckus that they do, and it's really no wonder that up until his recent marriage, that their father was rarely present at home. At the end of the day, though, as weird and annoying as Charlotte is, Adeline loves her.
Image
The Class Clown

Image
The Free Spirit

Up until just recently, Adeline had no reason to think of Alaina as being anything other than one of Charlotte's weird friends. That was confirmed recently, this past week when she found out that the eating disorder support group her father forced her into happens to be the same one that Alaina recently joined, but it additionally added another layer to their relationship. Their interaction in the group was a bitter one, with Adeline being dramatic, childish and offensive, and in her opinion, Alaina being every negative adjective in the English language. It's no wonder that she gets along with her sister, that's for sure, but this new element has definitely complicated things for Adeline, if only because she doesn't want people knowing her personal business, and she doesn't think she can trust Alaina to keep it a secret.

β•š xxxxxxxxxxxTHE TRAITORxxxxxxxxxxx ╝

Image
The King Bee

For the longest time, Esme has had a crush on A.J. that won't seem to falter even when presented with logic and fact. Like many people, Es finds him sociable and charismatic, and sure his popularity played a big part in it in the beginning, but there's definitely something more there that stops her from being rational. After getting so close to telling him about her feelings, just for him to be snatched away, you could say she's even more determined in her feelings for him because she'd gotten so close. She managed to settle with a casual friendship, one that consisted of A.J. turning to her for advice when he had issues with Sydney, since Adeline wasn't an option. While she liked the individual attention, no one wanted to help their crush with the girl who knowingly took him from you. As she feels is her right (she calls it karma), there have been a few times when Es has played this relationship into her favor, though she tries not to exploit it too much, if only out of fear that it would it bite her and she'd lose any ties to A.J., never mind her social standing. Over the summer, during one of his breaks with Sydney, the two ended up hooking up after the wrong mix of emotions and alcohol. While it wasn't something she had planned, she doesn't have any regrets over it, and a part of her need for revenge was satisfied, but she's still not fulfilled, and in a way, things are worse because now she's had a taste of the cake, but she still can't have it.


Image
The Queen Bee



Image
The Drama Queen

Adeline isn't someone that bothers Esmeralda. She does have an underlying annoyance, and perhaps a tad bit of jealousy, that the girl is right next to Sydney, simply because she thinks Adeline can be kind of spacey and isn't as qualified or well-deserving as she is, especially given the fact that Esmeralda puts in so much effort. In some ways, she looks down on the girl, but only because she believes the girl to be a tad under-qualified for her social ranking. Es doesn't let this be known though, and it's more of a soft, but persistent an annoyance than an active hatred. She still enjoys the girl's company and thinks of her as a friend, but that doesn't stop her from imagining if things were a little different...


Image
The Overachiever


Image
The Entrepreneur

Brody was her first and closest friend when she moved to New York. After meeting in the transfer student session, the two clicked and had an immediate bond that could only be likened to childhood innocence because things were so simple. Thanks to her, like everyone else in her former friend group, she doesn't have contact with him. With her other peers, if she happens to see them, she'll usually look right through, or if she's greeted, she'll over a 'Hi' and keep it moving. With Brody, it's definitely harder to act like he's a total stranger if for no other reason than he's the one person she actually feels guilt over. You couldn't convince her that she was a bad friend for moving up, but deep down she knows she was a disloyal friend, and chances are the only reason she knows that is because she lost her best friend. Not that she had any right to, but she never harbored any bad feelings for him, but wouldn't fault him if he had some for her. When the A-list life gets monotonous and too shallow for her, she's the first person he thinks about and actually misses. There have been times when she's thought about reaching out to him, but decided against it. It seemed like that's how thing would continue to go until the incident over the summer when her drink somehow got roofied and Milo blamed Brody. On top of the trauma of something like that happening to you, it's even harder that the alleged culprit is someone she trusted and still wants to trust. But Esmeralda has definitely become a lot more jaded and a lot less trusting over the years. On the one hand, she feels bad for being wary about his involvement, but on the other hand, in her mind, he has plenty of reasons to do what he may (or may not have) done.


Image
The Bookworm

Before Esmeralda got popular, Naya was a good friend of hers. Unlike some of her other friends back then, Naya was pretty quiet and tolerant of Es's obvious desire to be a part of the popular crowd. Even with Esme's subtle changes, like starting to imitate the girls or talk like them, Naya was still a good and patient friend when Esmeralda was not. It was apparent that their relationship would be coming to and end, but nevertheless, it did happen somewhat abruptly after a slight disagreement when Naya pointed out that Esmeralda would never truly be accepted into the group she was trying so hard to get into. On the surface, Esmeralda didn't look that bothered, as she didn't yell or get angry, which is why it seemed so sudden when the next day, she just stopped talking to Naya altogether. Sometime she'll still see the girl in the hall, and because she doesn't have any disdain for the girl, she doesn't cut her any looks. Esmeralda won't go out of her way to talk to her, but she can tell that, at least on the surface, Naya is still staying true to herself, and it's something that makes Esme pleased to see.

She knows she's not Charlotte's favorite person. The two bumped heads here and there beforehand, simply because they were two self-assured girls. Charlotte would annoy Esme when she got too weird, and Esme would annoy Charlotte when she started acting differently when the right people were watching. Before then, she wouldn't say she disliked Charlotte and did consider her to be a friend. Her biggest issue with Charlotte was Charlotte's own issue with Esme's lack of transparency. She didn't like how Charlotte (perhaps rightfully so) made her feel like some terrible person whenever the girl would point out her own changing behavior. After Esme left the group, it's no surprise that they don't speak anymore. With Charlotte, it's a lot easier to pretend she doesn't know her because they were never the closest or the friendliest. Still, while there might be the slightest bit of friction, it's old news really and just one of those things where not everyone meshes well. She doesn't dislike the girl or anything, but a Gossip Girl blast about doesn't tug at her heart either.

Her relationship with Alaina is quite similar to Charlotte's. She's always been more tolerant of Alaina's quirky personality if for no other reason than she was her crush's sister, and she figured a good relationship with her was valuable. Like Charlotte, Alaina wasn't too secretive about how she felt on Esmeralda trying to part of of the A-listers. And once she actually got there, nothing worth noting happened because by the time she left the group, their relationship was already distant and solidified. She tries to be a little friendlier to Alaina out of them just because she's A.J.'s sister and she doesn't want there to be any unnecessary rift, although she knows Alaina isn't actually that upset over Esme moving up. Esmeralda is aware that Alaina might know why she still tries to be cordial with her, especially because the girl does give Es her own skeptical glances. She does wonder how it is that the King Bee's own sister is a B-lister, though, and how she managed to get among the top ranks before she did. To her, this makes Alaina less valuable to her than she was in, say, middle school.
Besides passing each other in the hall, though, their relationship is mostly non-existent.

The King Bee

It wouldn't be a far cry to say that a lot of Alaina's arrogance and superior feelings she has towards the social hierarchy and the A-listers is thanks to her brother being the most popular guy in the school. This is the same guy she used to take baths with when they were babies, so of course him being the King Bee makes it easier for her to take this whole social circle thing a lot lighter than if it was just another guy. There's also the fact that Alaina is understandably protective of her brother, so she feels she has the honorary right-away to cross social boundaries if her brother is involved. She might not be the most doting sister, where she lets him get away with anything and is afraid to get into disagreements with him, but it's very obvious from the way she interacts with him that she loves him dearly. She doesn't care who you are or who your dad is if it's something involving him. Her brother can carry his own, and her defensive nature is very rarely seen because of that, and because she believes half the shit he gets himself into is his own doing because no one is forcing him to be at the center of the social hierarchy. That isn't to say that she doesn't worry about him at all, and in fact, with him being at the top of the social pyramid, she's a lot more concerned and protective than she used to be. No one wants to their loved ones at the front of the line for anything, because with all the good comes a hell of a lot of bad too. She does think him being the King Bee is doing him more harm than good, but after all of these years, she knows her comments mostly fall on deaf ears. But, Alaina is still his sister, and as is her sisterly duty, she will continue to bring it up when she pleases, if for no other reason than to annoy him.

Adeline has never been, and still isn't, Alaina's favorite person. She's always managed to more or less stay out of the girl's way, just as she does everyone else in Adeline's crowd. Because she's best friends with the girl's twin, she inevitably runs into her from time to time. Alaina has always made sure to keep it cordial. She doesn't like the girl, and views her as an air headed lap dog, but Alaina won't start drama for the sake of drama. Up until the previous week when she ran into the girl at group therapy for her eating disorder, Alaina would have said she was okay with their current set up. While it's certainly not the ideal situation, Alaina isn't as bothered by it as she probably should be. She doesn't feel the need to because of the confidentiality agreement, and she knows that Adeline wouldn't want this to come out, so in her mind, it's more a nuisance than anything else. Despite that, it's an extra complication in her life that she doesn't need.

As of current, Alaina doesn't bother with Es. Unlike Esme, Alaina is a loyal friend until she's been absolutely betrayed. And while she wasn't in her feelings about Esmeralda leaving the group for Sydney's crew (especially because after a while, it was obvious she was en route), but she did lose any respect she had for the girl. It was one and done, and Alaina just viewed that as being Esmeralda's business. She doesn't consider her a friend, and notes how shallow and dead the girl seems to be compared to her more vibrant personality from when they were younger, but it's not an accident that out of the A-listers, she views Esmeralda less harshly. Whereas the others is a genuine dislike, Es is more of an overbearing nuisance.

Alaina thinks Naya is sweet and appreciates the girls smarts and personality. She considers her a friend and believes her to be one of the few good things about the school she attends. She knows sometimes her own personality is a bit much for Naya, and at times she does feel a bit embarrassed for being so over the place, but she knows that Naya isn't judging her (at least not much), and that's something she's grateful for. With the environment that they're in, with so many distractions and temptations, and with Alaina priding herself as being someone who sticks to their guns, she gives Naya props for refusing to change herself too much when there's definitely a lot of pressure to do so.

Charlotte is Alaina's absolute best friend and is probably the only thing keeping her sane at Constance. Charlotte is similar to Alaina in a lot of ways, which explains a large reason why they bond so well. They both have twin, both of which are a part of the popular crowd while they themselves aren't. They're not afraid of being outside of the inner circle, and even prefer it. But besides their personalities, Alaina thinks Charlotte is an irreplaceable person in her life. She's one of the view people who get to see a much softer, much more vulnerable part of Alaina. And while it's inevitable that two people with such bold personalities will clash, Alaina wouldn't dare let a negative word about Charlotte escape her mouth (at least nothing too negative!). Sometimes Charlotte can be too much even for her, and sometimes it's vice versa, so they do well to fuel each other, but also to balance each other. Charlotte is the closest friend she has, but despite this, she hasn't told the girl about her eating disorder, and doesn't plan on doing so anytime soon.
