|I just read the caption attached to the image that you intend for the front page of Flaky Pastry.. I have to disagree... I know they are your characters but Marelle is the classic nerd Please don't change that.. every group needs it nerds. They are unapriciated and underestimated. But they are a necissary part of any group. No well rounded group of Super.. um.... roommates can be with out one. LOL But honestly, I think she is perfect.
"She can still be a stabilizing influence to Zintiel and Nitrine without being a square"
Yes this is true.. I totally agree she doesn't have to be a square. But her inate description proves she is a nerd, and being a "Spoil sport" is often a part of that. Cause as any self respecting nerd will tell you there is always a better way to do things, and most of the things that regular (non-nerd) people do are inefficient and often unnecissary. Not to mention that it can make for great comedy. Think about it: 2 characters that love to leap before they look and the one character who is constantly telling them "Don't do that!" And eventually she has to step in and help save them from themselves.
At least in my humble opinion, that would make for great story telling.
