. Ao3 requires an invite, which I don't have.
As for the characters (Names could change between now and the final draft):
James Wyatt - The closest among the main cast to the classical comic book hero archtype: Tall, good-looking, and brave... although a bit too stubborn. As the oldest boy among the new recruits, he naturally falls into a team-dad role. I plan on using this character to deconstruct the modern usage of "take that, white boy!" that I mentioned before, with some characters blowing him off and otherwise being rude despite his genuine attempts at friendship and comaradrie. Naturally, there would be some resentment and animosiity that would grow from that.
Holly Bristol - The female lead. A mix between Jean Grey and Kitty Pryde. The oldest new student, ahead of James by a few months. Having been a big sister before being kicked out of her house, she is instincively protective of the younger female students. Ethnically jewish, but her close relationship with her father led to her relating more to the christian faith... however, recent events have tested her beliefs. I wanted to use this character to explore someone trying to be a role-model while struggling with their own broken idealism.
I got a couple more if anyone is interested.
