Reivier isn't really shy or nerdy, though. He's just. . . some guy (man, what a boring character :p ). Well actually, Reivier's probably more fit to be emo, and Serai the shy nerd. Lunair is more like the punk girl, and Sal. . . yeah, preppy girl, why not. :P

Lunair should be a goth/punk.
Reivier should be an Emo.
Vikon should be the Class Clown.
Serai should be the Shy Nerd.
Salory should be the Preppy Girl.
Kaiden, Petal and Eshe should all be Teachers.
Rayne/Agatha and General Dirk should be the Principal and Vice Principal.

Hm...
-First of all, do you all prefer that this is set in an alternate reality where Lunair and everyone have been living here all their lives, or a branch off from the main plot, where all of them are tranported to Earth? I'm currently going with the latter.
-I kind of pictured Salory as the tough girl who won't let guys intimidate her. She doesn't seem very preppy to me. Works for Serai though.
-What should Kardian teach? He seems a chemistry guy, but since Eshe is already teaching that...*shrugs* No office assistant?
-I wasn't originally planning to add Petal (on the basis she is dead in the official QTBV) but since you and Lance both suggested her...I can't picture her as a teacher though. How about the school nurse instead?
-I like the idea of General Dirk being a vice principal, that hadn't occured to me.

And Reives ninjas me. I prefer his version of Reivier and Lunair, Serai I can see as the shy nerd as long as she's also the clingy girlfriend, Salory I still don't quite agree with.

Mm true, that's probably more fit for Sal.

As for the context of the school scenario. . . hm, I'm pretty interested in seeing either of them; which do you want to make more?

I'm more for the idea that they've lived there their whole lives. It gives more freedom, if nothing else, because you won't be constricted by things like "why did they get sent there?" or " isn't petal dead?" or "where's Hugo in all of this?" Speaking of which, where's Hugo in all of this?

For Sal, I'm thinking a relationship similar to those found in those sappy coming of age novels- Serai is the shy best friend (sister in this case) and Salory is the talkative, bossy, protective, couldn't-care-less-what-the-world-thinks-of-me type.

As to the different kinds...well, I think the second would be easier, and I kind of want to have plot thread where they go to Dasha and ask her to transport them to Earth. Dasha says all right, for a price.Eshe asks what. Dasha says -insert something modern- (maybe an iPhone?).

But I'd like other's input, I don't really care.

Edit: Stop ninja'ing me, people! ):<

Well, I don't know. Would Quintessence exist is my main problem.

Oh, but if we do go that route, Hugo would be the stalker.

All their lives sounded good to me, but I don't really care either way. Sal could totally be a tom boy! :eshtease: -shot-

:< Seems it's me against everyone else. :P Anyone have an idea for a plot then? Since the hazy one on my mind was sort of dependent on them searching for the Quintessence cure.

I could totally see your way working, though, and it would be awesome if either: 1) one person doesn't remember/know that this is an alternate universe, or 2) only one person knows, and they have to convince the rest. For added humour, make that one person Vikon :P

Eh... I'm not sure I get what you mean, Vasha.

Well, my old idea was basically:
-The intro takes place in Dasha's cave, preferably the same one in the real game. All eight of the chosen characters are there. *insert dialogue above*
Then that "one year and half ago" of the original intro, but it would read "10000 lightyears away" or something.
-Kardian would then inform them that the Quintessence was discovered by a high school student trying to find the cure to...cancer or cooties, you choose. For a science fair project. Each person is assigned a class with the girl who discovered it- Vikon is in Math with her, Serai in English, etc. Kardian is an Office Assistant who made sure of that. The game goes through a school day, English, Math, Lunch, etc, each class with a different QTBV character. A minigame should be in most of them if possible.
-Plot twists: The principal and vice principal are actually Agatha and General Dirk in disguise using the Quintessence. They discover that after school. Vikon accidentally loses the quintessence. And Dasha needs her iPhone.
-A second school day occurs. Here, Eshe finally manages to get the cure. But the Quintessence is still missing.
-It's the weekend. You, as the player, have to somehow find the lost Quintessence, avoid Agatha and the angry science fair student, and get Agatha's iPhone. You have Saturday and Sunday to do it.
-Possible multiple endings depending on what goals you achieve.

Eh, it's a crappy storyline anyways, but it's all I've got. I'd be happy to take your ideas instead, but I need a full plot idea. :P

Oh, and no matter what we choose, it has to have a school break-in and a school play/talent show. Non-negotiable.

I think it doesn't sound that bad. Comedies don't have to have really great plots :P
