Character Name: Wilhelmina Slater
Age: "I've been the same age for years". Fortyfive more or less, by the way
Job Position:Editor-in-chief. The best ever.
Alliance: Definitely myself
Livejournal: wilhelmina_sl

(About him/her)
Personality/History: Creative Directore during Fey Sommers's empire; after fighting a lot she is finally Editor-in-chief, together with Daniel Meade. The only person she trusts is herself. She's ambitious, a real diva, and thinks everything revolves around her. And it does. Mode's employees fear her like the devil, and she could make you cry even just looking at you.

First Person Writing Sample:
I couldn't understand. That Betty was a total mess, and I can't see why Bradford hired her. In my not-so-humble opinion, that's a terrible PR mistake. I mean, I look at her and all I see is...metal? Yeah, metal. Marc agrees with me. But then, when doesn't he? I don't even know if he has his own brain or if it's tightly linked with mine.
Back to Betty. What is even worst is that she can actually do her job. She keeps saving Daniel's ass, and that's not good for me. Daniel's ass is on the line because I want it on the line. If she keeps cleaning up his messes, how can I ever succeed and throw him out if this damned office?
Third Person Writing Sample:
She sit on the chair, thinking about the whole day. Suddenly, her Blackberry ringed.
"Wilhelmina" she answered.
"Hey, it's me" a male voice answered.
"What do yu want?" she asked impatiently. She couldn't stand him at work, and she certainly didn't want to chit-chat with him.
"I have to go to the airport and welcome Adriana Lima. Would you mind take care of the photoshoot setting?"
"Yeah, fine with me" she answered, and hang up.
This whole thing, her being on a truce with Daniel, was getting ridiculous. What was even worst was the fact that he was starting to think of her as a friend.
She, Wilhelmina Slater, would never be Daniel's friends.

Alliance: Both, gimme all the dirt you have
Livejournal: suzukilive
AIM: None

(About him/her)
Canon/OC: Canon
Personality/History: I am the glamorous, fashionable, hot as can be host of Live Entertainment. My job is to bring to you (yes, you) all the latest gossip and fashion must-knows. I also have exclusive interviews, tours and everything else you need to know with MODE.

First Person Writing Sample: Fashion! Scandal! MODE! This is Suzukie St. Pierre live on Live Entertainment. According to our sources, Claire Meade is indeed Fey Sommer's killer! Gasp! Mrs. Meade, wife of Bradford Meade of the Meade Empire is to be in court on Friday. Will she be found guilty? Or innocent? We don't care! We just wanna know, what are you wearing, honney?

Third Person Writing Sample: Suzuki turned sideways facing the camera and smiled. Covering MODE related scandals was his job. And he did his job well. He was the B-E-S-T.

Character Name: Betty Suarez
Age: 24
Job Position: Assistant to Mr. Daniel Meade... for now. Has aspirations of a great career in editing in her near future. (The “future” might come sooner than she planned if she has to keep working at this ridiculously sexist magazine for much longer!)
Alliance: Daniel
Livejournal: 1lostone
(About him/her)
Betty has been working at Mode at an entry-level position under Daniel Meade for roughly two years. After taking awhile to get her personal life under control, Betty is taking steps into turning herself into the independent woman she knows she will be one day. She works for Daniel at Player. She absolutely loathes this magazine and what it stands for, but can’t see herself quitting. She likes to think that Daniel needs her there with him, and because of their friendship she will put up with the indignities that come with working there. Betty has just decided to get her own apartment, and is excited, nervous and scared all at once.

First Person Writing Sample:
I couldn’t believe it. When the elevators opened to admit me to the Player floor of the Meade building, all I could think of was how much I disagreed with this … magazine… and all it stood for. How could there be such crap published under the Meade name? “Picking Date Movies That Are Sure To Get Her In The Mood?” “Twelve Ways To Get Her To Swallow?” Ew!! I couldn’t believe that Daniel was working here. Here! Sure at face value it seemed that Daniel would be a perfect match for the way that women are portrayed at this publication, but I knew better. Despite his … um, popularity… with the beautiful women that paraded in and out of his life, I honestly never thought that I would see him so low. Working here after Mode must be quite a shock. But… maybe he would like it. Maybe he would even want to use this magazine to turn things around for women and how they’re portrayed in the media!

I pushed my glasses onto my nose and got a hold of myself. Still. A job was a job. Daniel was here, right? And maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. Daniel was enjoying being a dad. Well. At least he was enjoying the baseball games, and the video games, and the late-night pizza parties of being a dad. Sigh. That’s not my business. I work for him. I’m not dating him or anything. I was glad to have his friendship. If being his friend meant that I had to switch magazines, then so be it. The paycheck would be a paycheck no matter where I was. I took a deep breath, smiled brightly and stepped into the offices to find my wayward boss.

Third Person Writing Sample: Daniel struggled when the two bulky men bent him over the desk and secured his hands with duct tape. They had his arms up to a most uncomfortable angle and the tape was so tight that Daniel cried out in pain. He managed to kick back and knew he connected with his attacker’s knee, but he was off balance and felt himself falling to the side. Without being able to use his arms for balance, he fell to the floor. Daniel got a boot in his side for his troubles.

Daniel cried out again when he was hauled back to his feet by his hair.

“If you know what’s good for you, you’ll calm down. This don’t have to be no problem, here.”

The words were punctuated by a bright burst of pain from his cheekbone as he saw the butt of the gun crack him in the face. He was too stunned to do much more than try to brace himself. They were about the same height. There were two guys in his office with him, and two more standing outside. His quick glance took.. sorry I had to delete it; my post was too long!

NOTE: I only want Betty if my friend and beta Jen (survived_it_all has Daniel!!! Otherwise, I will try for Marc and let someone else have Betty. I hope that’s okay!

Character Name: Daniel Meade
Age: 34(ish) (I’ve always thought there was a 10 year difference in Daniel and Betty’s age.)
Job Position: Editor-in-Chief to MODE/Player
Alliance: Team Daniel of course
Livejournal: [Bad username: daniel_meade]

(About him)
Canon/OC: Canon
Personality/History: Daniel Meade is the second child to Bradford and Claire Meade. He lived in his brother, Alex’s shadow, but after Fey Sommer’s death, Daniel was thrust into spotlight of being Editor-in-Chief to MODE instead of his golden child brother Alex who was thought to be died. Thank to his father hiring Betty, Daniel stopped mixing business with pleasure and actually became a credible EIC for the most part. He’s gone from infamous playboy bachelor to working on becoming a better person as well as making a name for himself instead of being a disappointment to his family.

First Person Writing Sample:
So, maybe Player wasn’t exactly MODE, but at least now I have plenty of chances to spend time with DJ unlike how my father was with me. I could be a great dad and still run a magazine at the same time or at least that’s what I’ve been telling myself so I wouldn’t have to think about how Alexis pulled Mode out from under me and gave it to the one person she and I had to have an alliance against. We even pinky promised, but it wasn’t enough. The only person I can trust within the walls of this company is my assistant Betty. Thank God she comes back from her vacation today.

Third Person Writing Sample:
He watched her carefully with her wide smile. Daniel knew she was right considering how things were when the two of them finally were on equal playing. He appreciated the way she didn’t object to staying at the office long after everyone else had gone home or the way she would give him her little pep talks that he needed from time to time. Daniel knew that Betty knew how much he appreciated her, but there were times where he felt like he has to come out and say it regardless if Betty would be willing to listen to him.

Daniel chuckled at her enthusiasm. It amused him sometimes to see the way she was when it came to the magazine. He knew she loved helping him come up with an issue from month-to-month. He also knew that his assistant deserved more credit than what she got, but it wasn’t forgotten. Once the time was right, he would figure out a way to repay her for everything she had done for him.

Note: Maybe my examples aren’t the best, but like I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I am rusty when it comes to this whole RPG concept, but give me a chance to get back into the game and I am sure I'll get back into the swing of things. :) And if I can't be Daniel, I'd like to be a OC.
