Nicolette Blanchet
23 - Evolute - The Carrie Institute / ECLU

user posted image


Overview:
Colette is a lovable oddball, an ADHD-prone, overly bubblish and highly extroverted girl, who loves to make friends. She sees life as an adventure, and tends to be overly positive. She loves everything which is unconventional and outside the so-called 'social norm'. She'd weird and she knows it. She's a Tier 3 Evolute, possessing mind reading abilities. Colette has an MA diploma in Psychology, she works as an assistant analyst at The Carrie Institute, while also volunterring for ECLU. In her free time, she plays keyboards in a funk jazz band named 'The Zanty Misfits', performing in smaller clubs. She's an avid bookworm, music lover and social activist. She lives in Evendale and is the proud owner of a male Burmese cat named Schrödinger.

Friends:
As stated above, Colette can easily make friends. She's a true extrovert, who literally jumps at every opportunity to socialize with people. She loves hanging out in cafés and bars, or just take an excursion to somewhere in the right company. So, basically I'm open to any and all plotting in this direction.

An easy way to socialize with Colette is through a mutual interest, and she has quite a few. She loves books, basically all kinds of music (both listening and performing), she frequently goes to her brother's ice hockey games, and she is a volunteer at the ECLU. She has a good heart, and can be a trusted friend if one lets her be.

Enemies:
Colette's ultra-bubblish personality can be a distracting factor for more introverted people or people who simply get annoyed by someone endlessly talking about pop culture to them on an 240 m/h speed. Some people might find her just plain annoying. She is also quite stubborn, so she's not really a good debating partner.

Also, Colette is an Evolute, who's very determined to push forward the case of Evolute rights, so it's very likely that she won't get along with someone who dislikes Evolutes or holds an opposite view as hers. She also dislikes rich snobs, and hold a quite negative view of the monetary elite. (And she also dislikes people who don't like cats.)

Lovers:
Colette is completely single at the moment. Her previous relationships were rather teenage crushes, nothing serious. She feels a bit lonely, and wishes she could find a long-term, loving relationship with a guy who can understand her oddball, outsider way, and would not be distracted by her 'quirkiness' and zany antics. She hopes she could find love one day, but tends to believe she'll die alone in a house shared with fifty cats.

Nicolette and Bruce

An official welcome, Heyho!

As I've mentioned in the C-Box, Nicolette and Bruce share several commonalities that I think would make for interesting thread exploration. Both of them have mental health backgrounds and Masters Degrees in the overarching field (she has a minor in addictology while he worked as an addiction therapist for several years before opening Shangri-La). They are both Tier 3 psychics. They are both friendly and a bit unorthodox. And Bruce is a big fan of the ECLU despite not volunteering with them. At present, he's running for the Haven Council seat and has made several overtures towards the ECLU but is aware that his direct involvement is probably not something they need. Additionally, Bruce is also a stubborn person.

Let's throw them together and see what happens. Bruce has a friend who works at Carrie, and he also has to go for his monthly injection, which would give him reason to go to her workplace. If she had reason to try Shangri-La, they could meet there. He has family in Evendale and shops on Arbor Street frequently, and he also enjoys the nightlife.

Those are all ideas for more positive interactions. I have a plot on the horizon that could become more depressing/antagonistic if that is your preference.

Nicolette and Bruce

Thank you for the welcome!

I like all your ideas. Well, I'd say let's stay with more positive interactions and leave depressing/antagonistic stuff for another time. //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/smile.gif

I don't think Col would visit Shangri-La, but they can meet either at the Institute or at a club / pub / bar, or even at an ECLU meeting / protest. Colette frequently visits such events, maybe Bruce attends one of them to let the ECLU know they can support him on the election? Or they attend the same concert and bump into each other there? It can even be a gig Col performs with her band or just sits in as relief keyboard player for another formation. I'm open to any and all ideas.

Bruce would attend an ECLU meeting for a campaign Q and A. Or if she was sent to one of his campaign events to ask some questions or to discuss policy, that's another idea. I'm also up for having them meet in a bar, discuss her set, and drink. I'm easygoing.

All of this needs to occur May 1st or earlier before the more depressing plot takes effect.

How about a mixture of the two? Col performs in a club, and after the show, she notices Bruce there. She remembers him from the last ECLU meeting and goes over to ask him about his policies and stuff.

That sounds delightful to me. Would you be willing to begin? I owe several other posts but hope to catch up soon.

Of course, I can start it. Where should we place it in town?

There are some good clubs in Evendale. Perhaps there?

Colette && Sasha
I feel like these two might get along well? Sasha works at Carrie and has been known to back the ECLU. He fights for rights from inside the institution, instead of outside. Maybe they could run into each other at an event? Or something?

Colette && Reese?
I generally dislike antagonistic threads, so this is kind of a weird pitch, but I think it could flip quickly enough that it might be amusing. Reese's family is one of the richest in Ark City. It might be cute if Colette just kind of assumes he's the worst and then kind of gets awkwardly headed off at every turn. (Reese is also hella depressed. O.o I note importantly, because he's hard to talk to)

Colette && Bo or Vels
Let me know if you can think of anything with my other boys! Vels is the most chipper hitman you'll ever meet. And Bo is the kindest soul to ever walk the earth. XD That is their 5 second description.

Colette && Sasha

I like the idea of throwing these two at each other. They can run into each other either at Carrie or at an ECLU event, both are fine with me. Colette is a rookie at the Institute, and since Sasha is a design / development specialist, I don't think they've ever worked together. But they can still bump into each other at the cafeteria or something.

I'd think the calm and patient personality of Sasha and the ADHD bubblish personality of Colette might provide us with some good dynamics.

Colette && Reese?

I don't like antagonistic threads either. But it might be interesting to set up the always bubblish, always cheerful Colette with someone moody and depressed. I'd think Col would annoy the hell out of Reese at first.

Colette && Bo or Vels

I've been thinking about Bo and Colette before, actually. He seems to be generally a nice guy, just the type of person Colette would probably befriend. Also, he's a museum curator, and Col loves museums and libraries and all those kinds of stuff.

Nicolette & Roland

Nicolette loves all kinds of music. Roland plays particularly well with the piano and knows some classical jazz pieces which were played by his dad in his earlier years. They could maybe meet at a bar (a pretty common venue, I know xD but anywhere's fine) and something happens which would force (or volunteer? yep, that might sound better) them both to give a musical number and make the place a bit lively. Idk if Nicolette is willing to hop along, but Roland surely would ... well, just for the heck of it lol

As for Roland being a cop and Nicolette an Evolute like his younger brother, I guess that can be revealed as things progress. We can insert some of that in their conversations but that would depend.

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Nicolette & Roland

I love this music duet idea. Colette would definately join such a performance, even only for the joy of playing music together with someone and cheering people up. She's a very talented pianist, and can play basically anything, including improvising stuff. Her dad was an aspiring jazz pianist, so that's also a common thing for these two.

Being kind of an anti-authoritarian figure, Colette doesn't really trust cops. So, it would be fun if she'd befriend one, and kinda drop her prejudices. I also like the Evolute brother idea, I'm sure Col would feel totally sympathetic towards him, and try to help Roland and his brother dealing with whatever problem they might have.

So, I'd say let's start up something.

Awesome! I can start a thread later-ish or tomorrow once I have free time (which I definitely will after the wedding thing lol) unless you want to beat me to it, that's perfectly fine ^^

Colette && Sasha

Sasha's very calm and patient, so I think it could be really cute. Do you want to start this up for them? //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif Just make the cafeteria either REALLY crowded or entirely empty so one of them sits with the other for situation appropriateness?

Colette && Reese?

Eyyyyyy~ Sweet. I'm glad we're on the same page with antagonism. //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif My only concern with this concept (in retrospect) is that Reese isn't... normal? He doesn't have normal reactions to things because he's so intensely trying to squish his emotions all the time. So often if he gets annoyed, he'll .... lash out (verbally or physically) or he'll have a panic attack. Maybe we can do something where Reese has to help Col out with something?

Colette && Bo or Vels

//files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif oh yay~ I was actually noticing that they might get along too! Do you have any ideas for what kind of thread they should have? The museum hosts a lot of charity events -- Bo is also a photographer. Maybe she could see him taking pictures and casually interrupt? (We could also just make their friendship somewhat established if we want? Like say that they've run into each other a few times before? If you think that would ease the thread along at all?)
