Good question.

My brain is so preoccupied with finals right now that I honestly haven't put any thought into scheming besides us doing it. :P Maybe we can come up with what we want to happen right after the battling are over? I can have Nathan play exposition-giver and explain the whole reincarnation thing! :)

SCHEMING SCEEMING SCEAMING SCREAMING

maybe we can do a pad party next week when finals are over? :) I think it'd be sweet to scheme short term and general long term ideas!
if carina were a soda, she'd be a white claw. refreshing, but a bit alcoholic.

That's a great idea but let's still start scheming just a little in the DT so we have some ideas ready to talk about in the pad party

(Also I probably won't make it but I support having a pad party because it's a good idea)

Edit: Carina already covered the short term. Oops

I'm also down for the idea of a pad party, but spamming the DT first sounds like a great idea, too!

(Also, hi everyone! I'm back after struggling with finals. >>)

I was trying to figure out what I could potentially scheme up, and then I realized we didn't have a meeting place for our quirky band of heroes yet. I think it would be really funny if they start off with somewhere really normal like the park or a local restaurant, only to find somewhere cooler when Jane comes up with the superhero idea.

(I also can't wait to write her being like "guys let's be superheroes" with Nathan protesting quietly in the corner.)

That just gave me an idea! If everybody knows that they are superheroes, maybe the group could have their own hotline like on The Powerpuff Girls! So, the mayor or whoever could call them and tell them the emergency!

As for the meeting place, they could start out at a coffee shop or something!

@Valkyria, I love that idea! I never watched Powerpuff Girls growing up, but that suggestion just gave me serious Babysitter Club vibes. I love the idea of them having a hotline that people can call whenever something's afoot.

In the vein of The Babysitters Club, Jane insists it needs to be a landline phone for the ~aesthetic~.

We’re probably going to do a lot of planning in the pad party, but I’m wondering how the girls are going to get from one place to another. It’d be cool if they had their own car or ship!

I’m so excited to have the pad party!

HAHAH OH MY GOSH yes I approve of this phone similar to the power puffs!!

that reminds me, WE NEED A SUPERHERO NAME. something like Power Puff Girls would be hilarious since we rlly do be a bunch of gals out here, but since everyone is a reincarnation, hmm...

OKAY so here's my skeeming ideas so we can prepare for pad party :') I love this cast so much aksjfhksd I am excited to read/write more w this SB

short term ideas
  • Beat butt at school mask peeps!
  • High five each other then realize "oh, uh, wait, we're superheros now?"
  • Meet at park/coffee shop/wherever
  • Get up to speed with reincarnations n other explanations
  • ???
  • PROFIT

long term ideas
  • HEIST! but superhero style! maybe they find villain HQ or somethin
  • Happy social times for character development!
  • Maybe some chapter where they all practice training their powers
  • Uhhh... school episode? Trying to juggle school with superpowers? AHH

we may have talked about this i'm sorry if we have askdjfhksd i forgot but will they all be famous? ARE THERE OTHER SUPERHEROS LIKE THEM
if carina were a soda, she'd be a white claw. refreshing, but a bit alcoholic.

@Valkyria Dora can provide a car! And she can drive the car! And it'll be awesome

Either she'll make the powers that be let her try for her driver's license early for superheroing purposes, or she'll build a robot butler idk

I agree! All of these ideas sound great. :)

Nathan won't be an official member of their group, but I love the idea of him desperately trying to convince Dora that it's not a great idea to be driving everyone after just getting a driver's licensee. I'm, uh, not sure how much driving Nathan actually does, but I'm sure he knows how to. :P

He's a lot older than he looks.

...Is Nathan our Alfred? >>

...dude, we could make him drive them places and make him wear a bowtie

He'll be like 'No Dora u r child u can't drive' and she'll be like

'Application accepted, new chauffeur'

The bow tie is a little questionable, but I'll see if I can get Jane to make him wear it. :P He has trouble saying no to her. >>

Although, since he always lies, it'll probably be more "Yes Dora you're an adult you can drive" until Jane translates.
