Tell a Friend
Crystal again, with a new character. This is Kirsten Nordlund, a Beauregard sophomore. She's very energetic and has a hard time sitting still and staying quiet. Her bio is over here, but here's the short version:

- Kirsten was born in Sweden, on the island of Fårö, and speaks with a slight accent. Her father is Swedish and her mother is American.

- Both of her parents are marine biologists, and do a lot of traveling. Up until she began attending CCI, Kirsten went with them, and has lived all over the world.

- She's a chaser for the school's quidditch team and a huge Quidditch fan in general. She doesn't get why Quodpot is so much more popular with Americans.

- Plays saxophone in the school band.

- She loves hats and has a huge collection of all different kinds, from berets to sombreros and everything in between. Most of them are everyday kind of hats, but she has some pretty silly ones, too.

I'm open to all kinds of plot for her- friends, an ex, enemies, etc. Anything, really.

Hihi! I remember Kirsten from Durmstrang, right? Oh so long ago xD

So! Becky here with all my kids! Sunny and Sam would both know Kirsten from being in Beauregard but they're both waaaaaaaay in quodpot. Sunny is totally into this idea of a hat collection though. :D

Meka and Apple would both know her from being in the same grade and they would both like her and know her from band as well! Meka plays flute/piccolo and Apple plays ukulele and guitar.

Yevgeni would know her from band but he's painfully shy about approaching people and I'm not sure if Michiko would know her BUT I'm always open for random run ins and crazy plot ideas. :D

Yep! This Kirsten is kind of different, mostly because Durmstrang!Kirsten would have definitely been in Rienzi, and I wanted a Beauregard.

Anyway, Kirsten likes Sunny and Sam, even if they can't recognize that Quidditch>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Quodpot. ;)

Kirsten thinks Meka and Apple are awesome. And I'm open for randomness, too, so that works for me!

Awesome! Beau buddies and band buddies!

Malachi will know her because she's a Beau and because she's a Quidditch player. Even though he plays Quodpot, he still catches the Quidditch games. Mal likes his sports. Pretty girls always catch his eye as well.
mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 1st, 2011 08:22 am (UTC) (Link)
Like I mentioned in Mal's intro, Kirsten would be friendly, and have a little crush on him. And she'd be happy that he catches the Quidditch games.
thatryderboy From: [info]thatryderboy Date: February 1st, 2011 05:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sounds good, even the second time around. :)
jake_frost From: [info]jake_frost Date: February 1st, 2011 03:59 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL...Mark again, Crystal! I mentioned Malachi, but I forgot Jake! I'm not sure if she will know Jake, but Jake will know Kirsten, because he goes to all of the Quodpot and Quidditch games. You never know when Jake will pop up.
mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 1st, 2011 08:42 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I don't think she'd know him at the moment, but they could always run into each other at some point.
thatryderboy From: [info]thatryderboy Date: February 1st, 2011 05:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Jake might be suspicious of her if he saw her talking to Malachi too much. He'll be suspicious of Mal because of his family background.

Since I'm in Gael's journal... I imagine, while they might not be buddy-buddy due to age differences and everything, I'm sure Gael thinks she's pretty awesome and is perfectly friendly and nice if they happen across each other's paths.

Alex... is a dick XD I don't know that they would really run in the same circles or anything and he probably smug if they bump into each other.

As for Colby, I imagine they get along SWIMMINGLY. Because Colby likes very many people, and Kirsten seems to be just the kind of person she'd be friends with. :D

mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 1st, 2011 09:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Kirsten thinks Gael is awesome, too, but agreed that they wouldn't be especially close.

She and Alex are both in dueling club, so she'd know of him from there, but he seems like a jerk to her, and she doesn't need to deal with others' negative attitudes, so she wouldn't bother with him if she can help it.

I think Kirsten would definitely be friends with Colby! :)
wantsthesky From: [info]wantsthesky Date: February 1st, 2011 03:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Also, forgot to mention, Gael's probably gone to Quidditch games and whatnot, because he thoroughly likes it even though he's on the Quodpot team.

Alex can be charming when he wants to be, but overall he is a snot and she's most likely seen that side of him in dueling club XD

They can bumble into relationships and crushes together, because Colby's not very experienced in that area herself!

omgsquee I love Mae Whitman! Erm... proper character intro to follow >.>

Ahahaha, I was confused when I got that notification. I was like, "Who's that?".
porcelinaofvast From: [info]porcelinaofvast Date: February 1st, 2011 02:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

Tatum probably doesn't really know herrrrrr, Erica might know her from classes and stuff, but idk if they'd be bffs or anything. :O She and Jenny again idk if they'd know each other well, but Jenny would definitely be nice if they did meet. :]] She and Brody are in the same year, although Brody is all about the quodpot ahaha she's probably like WHAT QUIDDITCH TEAM?

Iiiiiiiii noticed a mention of Hunter up in that there bio, and I definitely think something needs to come of this. If you want it to be an afar admiration, that's cool, but if not, Hunter would definitely take her under her wing and be like MY BRO and then go from there. Although she doesn't understand why Kirsten doesn't want to play quodpot. IT'S CONFUSING. WHAT'S THE PROBLEM. BEST SPORT EVER. OTHER THAN FOOTBALL. GO COWBOYS.
porcelinaofvast From: [info]porcelinaofvast Date: February 1st, 2011 02:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Derp, she and Brody are same house not year, obv I am derp.
mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 3rd, 2011 03:50 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I imagine she'd know Erica, Jenny, and Brody to a certain extent, being in the same house or year as them. She's generally friendly, so I don't see her having any problems with either of them, though she's TOTALLY SIDE-EYEING BRODY FOR NOT KNOWING ABOUT THE QUIDDITCH TEAM.

And Kirsten kind of fails at keeping her feelings too hidden most of the time, so her admiration for Hunter is probably obvious as hell. And Kirsten thinks of Quodpot like Chips Ahoy cookies. Sure, they taste nice enough, but it's not the same as freshly-baked cookies!
867_5309 From: [info]867_5309 Date: February 3rd, 2011 10:26 am (UTC) (Link)
All sounds good to me. :]] Though Hunter does resent that cookie comment QUODPOT COOKIES WOULD BE AWESOME OKAY GDI
chuck_munroe From: [info]chuck_munroe Date: February 3rd, 2011 04:02 pm (UTC) (Link)

So my newbie Chuck here will probably like Kirsten, but I don't know if they'd know each other. With Chuck being a Senior and all. Chuck likes to attend all the Quodpot and Quiddich games, though, so I imagine she's at least seen her play. And they're in the same house, so run-ins are always possible.

Lisette loves hats, too. Especially the funky kind. She wears quite an array and would have that in common, but again, not sure if they would know each other, especially considering Lisette's tendency for introversion.

HOWEVER! Molly will know Kirsten from classes, even though they're in different houses. Molly loves Kirsten. She likes hearing about faraway places so she'd be fascinated by her being from Sweden!
mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 5th, 2011 07:39 am (UTC) (Link)
Kirsten will be friendly with Chuck and Molly, and while I don't think she'd know Lisette very well, but if she knew that Lisette loves hats, too, she'd definitely try to get to know her better.

I think you might have lost Ciaran on the hat thing (he's not a hat person at all. BOO HATS), but otherwise I don't think he'd have an issue with her. They're in a couple of classes together, so they probably know of one another. How well is up to you.
mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 5th, 2011 08:27 am (UTC) (Link)
I think they'd vaguely know each other, maybe? Anyway, he seems kind of interesting to her, even if she doesn't believe the rumors that he's a murderer.
whodoo From: [info]whodoo Date: February 4th, 2011 12:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Hello Crystal!

Kirsten and Casey would know one another, at least being in the same house and year. He'd be nothing but nice to her, tries to be generally, and may end up asking lots of questions if he ever finds out she's traveled a lot.

Sibyl would know her through Quidditch, as she plays seeker (and they're the only two PCs on the team). She'd be plenty friendly to her, being a teammate. Obviously unknowing about Kirsten's thought about the position XD

Keegan would know her from a couple extracurriculars they share, and would like her well enough. Quinn probably doesn't really know who she is, not that it's a bad thing.
mad_hatter From: [info]mad_hatter Date: February 5th, 2011 08:42 am (UTC) (Link)
I think Kirsten would like Casey a lot. And despite her feelings about the Quidditch thing, she likes Sibyl, too. She thinks Keegan's pretty cool, and doesn't know who Quinn is, either, so it's all good.
