Birdie's not exactly what anyone would
consider as the survivor-type. She lived
mostly because of luck and yes, she has
those huge, blue eyes that give off that
innocent look. And she is that. A child-doc,
she is still grieving the loss of her little
brother as well as the pressure of being
on her own. Perhaps she'll be okay and
make it... and perhaps she won't. But she
has hope... and that's more than most
people have anymore...



Birdie, like anyone, could use friends. She's not exactly the kind of girl who
can do things on her own since most American things are still very weird to
her because of her foreign state, but she would work hard and win people over
as fast and as easily as any child might. She's completely guileless and it's
sometimes to her benefit.... but most of the time not. Want to be her confidant?
She could use one... BIG TIME.



Ohh she'll have her share of enemies. Perhaps she says the wrong thing. Perhaps she accidentally mixes up customs and unintentionally insults a person. It's been known to happen. Of course, she'd want to make it right but that often makes matters worse instead. She would likely have many who want to toss her into the parking lot because of her spacey ways... and yes, she would fight tooth and nail to survive that.



She, like everyone else, wants to be loved. She's the kind of girl who, no matter the surroundings, would give her self wholeheartedly and quite easily if the situation were right. Of course, she's a bit naive and she could be taken in by those out to take advantage... she just hopes there are some decent people left in the world... she wants someone to trust.



JULIAN WEST - January 2, 2012 07:42 AM (GMT)
Okay, I want toplot with her for two reasons... one, she seems adorable, and two, I love Zooey Deschanel...

So, there's kind of a big age difference, but I guess with what's going on age doesn't matter much. Julian could definitely be her confident, although I'm not sure how comfortable she'd be with a fifteen year old hanging around as a friend and being her confident. If it was okay with her though then it could definitely be a possibility.

If you have any idea let me know, if you don't that's totally cool!

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 07:46 AM (GMT)
Hey! I think that she wouldn't mind having a friend, no matter the age. And a willing shoulder to cry on from time to time, for them both I think, would be a blessing. So yes! I'm completely game. I think these two would be great friends. :D

As for ideas... hmm, right now I'm completely out, but I'll give it some thought!

JULIAN WEST - January 2, 2012 08:00 AM (GMT)
Okay, awesome I'll definitely give it some thought too!

And yes, it'd be great for Julian to have at least one friend because right now he's pretty lonely, hasn't gotten to know very many people...

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 08:02 AM (GMT)
Same with Birdie. She doesn't know anyone at all yet, but that'll change once I get something going for her... but she could always use someone who she trusts and who trusts her in return. She IS a paediatrician... so maybe Julian comes to her with some sort of injury and she helps him?

That might be an idea. ;)

JULIAN WEST - January 2, 2012 08:07 AM (GMT)
That actually could work... I'm not totally sure if there's any other doctors in the mall rats, but yeah, that definitely could work! Maybe he goes to her thinking he's gotten infected and all freaking out and she reassures him that nothing's happened? I don't know, just trying to expand on your idea XD

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 08:21 AM (GMT)
I like it! :D Yes, she'd definitely be the type to get him to calm down and listen to her, especially if it was some kind of scrape or cut. She'd be a little wary at first, just until she spotted what exactly was wrong and then set him at ease. YES! That could work perfectly!

JULIAN WEST - January 2, 2012 08:32 AM (GMT)
Alright, let's do it then! I guess it would make most sense for me to start the thread?

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 08:32 AM (GMT)
YES! I'm up for it! :D IF you don't mind starting, I'll reply first thing in the morning since I'm thisclose to passing out. But... cannot wait. :D

JULIAN WEST - January 2, 2012 08:46 AM (GMT)
Okay! I'll start it tonight, no problemo!

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 08:47 AM (GMT)
Excellent! Alright, no rush but looking forward to it. :D

JULIAN WEST - January 2, 2012 09:20 AM (GMT)
So I lied... literally about to pass out right now, and I have swim practice in the morning tomorrow... so I'll try and have it up by early afternoon tomorrow, if that's alright with you!

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 09:59 AM (GMT)
That's fine! No worries! Ntske your time, there's no rush. ;)

VIRGIL BLAKE - January 2, 2012 12:21 PM (GMT)

Here is Virgil, possibly the most boring Mall Rat in existence ;D He keeps himself cooped up in his bookstore and has no friends per say except a few first name term relationships. I'd offer something exciting, but Virgil is so unexciting there should be a word for it to describe his exact style of unexciting-ness! But I thinkkk he'd tolerate Miss Flynn and let her borrow some books if ever she wanted ;D I'm terrible at plotting so go ahead and tell me to go away XDD <3

PERCIVAL ROGERS - January 2, 2012 01:16 PM (GMT)
FROM MAGS, there's frustration. How's she survived on her own for so long? To the feelings compelled to be overprotective with Birdie. If she's come new to the mall fairly recently then Mags or one of her peeps have subjected her with a standard interrogation before okay-ing her in. If she's always been there, her profession would be a definite asset. She's a pediatrician but medical personnel are necessary, she'd most likely ask Birdie to check up on Lexi's baby, on Tobi and ask them if they were doing okay healthwise.

Mags has basic first aid training from being in the military back home and I'm sure CIA won't let her without that common sense but she's no doctor. She'd be the go to gal for most issues of health, death, etc. She'd also say for a grown woman to stop being such a child, she can be the sort of CeCe to the Jess of Zoey. If the metaphor is acceptable enough. Birdie will possess the ability to level her into calm, they can be good frans.

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 05:13 PM (GMT)
Yes, I'm sure we could have all kinds of plotty goodness. She's new to the Mall and because of that, is shy when she's not normally the 'keep to yourself and stay quiet' type. Might be fun for these two to hang out, get to know one another... she might perk him up a bit? Who knows? ;)

MAGS and Birdie - YES! I like A CECE TO BIRDIE'S JESS. She would need one because, let's face it: Birdie isn't thinking logically. Nope, she's humming in the corridors? WHO DOES THAT? So yes, I think being interrogated might have put a dent in her cheeriness, but she'll bounce back. And if they need a doctor, she'd look over anyone who needed medical attention: babies, children, adults. Doesn't matter to her. BUT YaY FOR GOOD FRIENDS. Miss Birdie definitely needs those. ;)

VIRGIL BLAKE - January 2, 2012 05:26 PM (GMT)
LOLOLOL He's called that a lot ;D or was called it as a kid :V It's probably true too--ANYWHHHHOOO
Haha! Yes I think they could have some nice lil chit chats! Virgil isn't one for making buddies so I hope she won't be offended if he doesn't spend a lot of time with her. He's the kind who waits for people to willingly come to him because he hates to be a bother ;D But I think they could be super awesome when they are together! ^___^

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 05:28 PM (GMT)
Awww and she's the kind of person to poke her head in and BOTHER BOTHER BOTHER until she's got someone to talk to. This could be exactly perfect. :D Ohh we must thread. I'm all a-wiggle!

AND *snicker-snort* Poor Virgil. I can even see her asking him if he was often teased because of his name... though she wouldn't have been much better... >.>

JACE BOUCHARD - January 2, 2012 05:53 PM (GMT)

Birdie Flynn - January 2, 2012 05:57 PM (GMT)
YES! PLOTTING WITH USSSSS. We must! (and now I sound like a Hobbit). <3

AUSTIN STRANGE - January 3, 2012 06:58 PM (GMT)

What on earth could these two get up to? I have no clue! Austin is random, alcoholic and a drug addict trying to go cold turkey but failing miserably :V he's kind of dorky and nice really though, he just likes to kick back and be insane, much like that guy he resembles ;D What would Birdie think of him?! XD Besides their mutual love for cookies?! ;D I'm really bad at plotting, sorry dear! <3

Birdie Flynn - January 3, 2012 07:01 PM (GMT)

OMG SEE? She might have to help him kick his habit. Sure, she's a paediatrician, but she is a DOCTOR and that may go a long way to her being all helpful. Then again, she's perky, quirky and more than a little bit silly in her own way, so these two just might get along fab.

I SUCK AT PLOTTING TOO, but I have a feeling that their similarities will make them buds. :D THEN AGAIN, she tends to mother-hen a bit and that's always fun when the other person doesn't necessarily understand her reasoning. :P

AUSTIN STRANGE - January 3, 2012 07:04 PM (GMT)
I APPROVE ALL OF THIS! I'd love her to try and help this stubborn sonuvva bitch ;D She's so sweet and he'd probably behave around her if she told him what for! <3333333333 This must happen! Problem is their group differences, how could they meet? Like in the city somewhere? On adventures and they suddenly run into each other? :'D

Birdie Flynn - January 3, 2012 07:20 PM (GMT)
OMG YES. SHE WOULD TRY SOOOO HARD, but then probably bribe him if he didn't just give into whatever she wanted. She's not above using her skills as a cook or even with trivial bits of knowledge to get him to be won over. OMG SO MUCH LOVE <3 IT MUST HAPPEN BUT HMMM... maybe she heads outside (because she doesn't see the zombies as monsters, they're all 'poor things, they're so sick!') and she might have to get saved while breaking into a hospital for supplies or something. ADVENTURES FTW?

AUSTIN STRANGE - January 3, 2012 07:23 PM (GMT)
YES PLEASE ADVENTURES IN THE HOSPITAL A PERFECT SETTING <333333333 They could be buddies fo sho! And it's handy to have a doc on your side coz he does bash himself around when he gets drunk XD LET'S DO THISSSSS >8D Who would you like to start dear?? ^___^

Birdie Flynn - January 3, 2012 08:34 PM (GMT)
YESSS! I love the idea sooo much and knowing them, they'd be like... HEY, LOOK! IT'S AN ENEMA KIT! *they both bust out laughing* BUT YES, he will get patched up often by Birdie. She'll make a point of lecturing him nicely. ;)

HMMM... do you mind starting it? I have to start a post elsewhere, otherwise I would!

Ohai! I have Aiden here, another Mall Rat who has recently returned to the mall after embarking on a search mission for his grandmother with his brother. Of course, they came back with no success. He's an electrical engineer graduate, or was until the zombapocalypse. He's on the more quiet side, but once you start talking to him, he's not hard to get along with, albeit nerdy. i Don't see why these two couldn't get along, and Aiden certainly could use some friendly faces. I can't think of something specific, though. Brainstorm? Thoughts?</div></center></td>

Birdie Flynn - January 4, 2012 06:43 AM (GMT)
HEY! Ohh man, she could use a friendly face too... so I like it! Fellow Mall-Rats FTW!

I think she would love anyone who is slightly nerdy as she's a bit awkward herself. :D I think they would get along smashingly!

Hmm, ideas... she could be looking for supplies for her little kiosk-home, and run into him? Knowing her, she'd invite him back to her place for a chat and try to feed him. Yep, she's old-fashioned. :D

Woo! And Aiden is not just 'slightly' nerdy. I think they will get along VERY well! Aiden is a sucker for food and booze, so if she offered, he would probably take her up on it. And he's restless in the mall. There isn't much an engineer can do (or so he thinks) and just sitting around isn't exactly his cup of tea. I like the idea of her running into him! Depending on what she's looking for, he spends quite a bit of time in electronic stores. Like Apple store, PC stores, Radioshack, etc. Usually rigging something or taking it apart, dissecting, and trying to make something else out of an invention!</div></center></td>

Birdie Flynn - January 4, 2012 08:04 AM (GMT)
HAHA I love his ultra-nerdiness! And I can see Birdie asking him, all but pleading with him to make her up a microscope. She has plans to test on the zombies within the mall, simply because she's a curious sort and wants to find a cure. So... there's an idea. She feeds him, he can repay her back in electronic inventions! :D I LOVE IT! :D They would get along great, I think :D

Get paid in food for things he does to pass time? HELL YES! Oh he can probably rig something up. Then again, just to be a wiseass, he would give her a clear water bottle filled with water--which works as a magnifier! Test on the zombies? I'm intrigued! Aiden would be grossed out, though. Not even going to lie. I'm liking where this is going, though! BRILLIANCE!</div></center></td>

Birdie Flynn - January 4, 2012 08:14 AM (GMT)
HAHA I think she'd bat at his arm if he gave her a water bottle. :P But yes! I'm liking where this is going too. They'd be completely cheeky together even if she would wonder just how he came up with his inventions. She'd keep feeding him, though... yet, if he's grossed out, she'd make him cover his eyes but not stop working on her 'clinical trials'. *snort* I love this!

Sounds like an awesome plan to me! Ahahaha, he would just leave her to play biology class with the zombies...assuming it's really dead for good. Let me know when you're up for a thread with these two! ;D</div></center></td>

Birdie Flynn - January 4, 2012 08:22 AM (GMT)
HAHA she'd think he was squeamish and probably tease him. Ohh the fun to be had.

I'm up for a thread anytime you are.... just give me a poke and I'm game. :D

EMMANUELLE MANECH - January 6, 2012 01:36 AM (GMT)
Birdie is so cute, I could not resist posting here! How long has Birdie been in the mall? Emmanuelle was there in the beginning and has just came back from a trip with Aiden and Jaxson to look for the boy's grandmother. So if Birdie just came there within a month, Emmanuelle would not have met her yet. (If I missed this time frame somewhere, I am so sorry). I have no doubt that these two would not only hit it off, but grow to be best friends quickly because they have such similarities when it comes to their luck. Emmanuelle is not a hardcore surviver. She can run her little ass off, but she is not a fighter and at the moment has no interesting in learning how to be one (that could change if a good plot comes along). She is more passive due to an abusive mother. Despite a horrible up bringing, Emmanuelle is a real sweetheart and caring person. She is talkative, a book and computer nerd and loves puns of all kinds.

Birdie Flynn - January 6, 2012 02:38 AM (GMT)
OMG. I absolutely love your character, so YES. BESTIES. I think they would be so close so quickly, and yes, they would have much in common. Birdie hasn't been in the Mall for very long... about two weeks or so, so she would likely be the kind of girl to be creeping around, trying to figure out the lay of the land. If your sweet girl ran into her, they would probably have a lovely time sitting in Birdie's land of Pillow Pets and cookies, just talking and hiding. I love the mental picture of that.

JAXSON MACDERMOTT - January 6, 2012 02:44 PM (GMT)
Thank you! Playing a sweety is not easy, but I do love the character and how she is turning out. Best friends at first sight! No doubt Emmanuelle would find Birdie wondering around somewhere and go right over to her to chat her up. Or, Birdie could have found her in the Book store (if Birdie has ventured there). Emmanuelle remembers the mall well, so she would take her on a grand tour -grab the snacks- and try to introduce her to all those that Emmanulle remembers (also warn her about those who like their privacy more then others) which could be funny because I am sure Birdie has already met half the people, but Emmanuelle would know what it was like to be in that position of not knowing what to do to help. Emmanuelle is pretty open about everything so Birdie would learn about her quickly and the Texan would love to listen about her stories of Africa, seeing as that is one of the places Emmanuelle wanted to go see. Also, I saw that you plan to have her join area 9 at some point and that she might be doing some zombie autopsies? It would be cool if she said something like that to Emmanuelle. At the moment, Emmanuelle is feeling kind of useless because she is not a fighter and has a problem with giving the final death to zombies. She knows they are already dead, but her mother literally beat the violence out of her body once and it is a mental block she is struggling with because one time she smacked her boyfriend in the face in a moment of a heated discussion. It felt good and she worries that if she lets herself go down the road, she might be like her mother and become abusive. So I think to avoid that path, she might try to learn how to heal from Birdie, if Birdie was willing to teach her. Emmanuelle might even put on her brave face and say she would help Birdie with an autopsy.

I also have Jaxson MaDermott. He is very laid back, charming and a serious protector. Before all this happened, he was a construction worker so it would not be odd to see him wondering around from time to time, checking out all the exits and such to make sure everything is still secure since he is getting back from looking for his grandmother with his little brother. Jaxson is also very easy to get along with. While his brother is Mr. Smarts, Jaxson is more of the muscle type. He was a jock in high school so he is in no way a 'cool' nerd (unless knowing ALL the songs to Disney movies count?) I think if he ran into Birdie, he would find her a bit strange, but corky in a good way. He can seem really intimidating due to his size and how 'mean face' when he is zoning or thinking really hard. Jaxson is the guy that could get her a zombie. He also knows his way around most guns because he use to hunt on his grandmother's property and more then likely did so while the three were on the road. So if birdie needs any knowledge in that, then Jaxson is the man. He has patience to teach others and wants people to know how to protect themselves. Jaxson also has a strict, 'leave no man behind' policy that he has done well to keep so far.

Birdie'd have a way of growing on Mags and she'll make it a must to at least have spent time with her. Hide behind the reason of making sure that she's alright and safe and that no one's hassling her and also because Mags likes spending time with Birdie. The pressure she puts on herself as a leader is lifted up and she can be herself, though the definition is murky. But they should have best friend syndromes.

Sullivan Finch - January 6, 2012 05:55 PM (GMT)
Emmanuelle and Birdie - It IS hard playing a nice person which is why I've made Birdie just a little weird. I like the idea of those two sitting down, meeting in that way. I think it would work perfectly. :D Birdie would talk a mile a minute if she had someone there who talked back to her and didn't make her feel like a science experiment. Of course, that is also something that Emmanuelle might like because she will talk about home, up to a certain point. She doesn't discuss some things, because they're too painful. I like the idea of this! The autopsy thing, that would be fun to thread two girls, being all EWWW over the guts of a zombie. :D

Jaxon and Birdie - Jaxon would be a good friend to Birdie, mostly because yes, the Disney songs. Sure, she'd be a little wary of him at first, because what woman wouldn't be who was left all alone? But then she'd like a protector and if he was willing to help her snag a zombie, yes, she'd definitely accept his help. That and though she may know how to shoot (it was a necessary evil on the reserve), she doesn't want to. If he was coming along to do that, she'd be grateful.

Mags and Birdie - YES. I like this. They must meet. :D

JAXSON MACDERMOTT - January 6, 2012 07:19 PM (GMT)
Awesome! I would really love to do a thread with Birdie showing her how to stitch up someone's arm or going ahead and skipping to a zombie autopsy thread. It could start out with Birdie and Jaxson, then go to Birdie and Emmanuelle. Jaxson can bring her a zombie body and stay to make sure nothing happens to the girls. Unless you want to wait on that kind of thread, in which case, we can do a thread of the girls talking and Birdie showing her some quick patch up methods.
