Name: Ethan Reznick
Position: Teacher | Photography; Film/Video Club Coordinator; Junior Homeroom
Theme Song: Ride - Cary Brothers
History: Beaches, basement parties, water ice and Bon Jovi -- the staples of a Jersey native. Ethan Jeremiah Reznick was born to two loving and very Jewish parents one sunny fall afternoon in the late seventies. Four siblings later and, after surviving a rather awkward but character-building childhood -- believe it or not, bullies actually gravitate toward wimpy film nerds -- Ethan found himself on the doorstep of his destiny. Among all the teasing and berating (if you're Jewish and don't want to be something "substantial" like a doctor or a psychologist, you tend to get a hard time from the folks), he discovered that he not only liked to watch movies -- he was very interested in how they were made, whether that involved photography or camera work or even writing, and maybe one day, making some of his own. Ethan decided to put his plan into action and, during the fall of his senior year, applied to NYU, while making a small short film on the side as his essay. He got accepted, of course, and left his beloved Garden State roots for the big city. He received his BA in Film & Television with a minor in Screenwriting, and following, attended both the International Film Institute of New York and AFI for his graduate program. He ended up in Boston by fluke; his favorite teacher moved to Boston Film School and, at his personal request, Ethan joined him. He finished his course work but stayed on as a TA and discovered that he really liked teaching. Subsequently, Ethan's teacher gave him a glowing review and referral for the staff at Weston High, and there he has been for the past three years. Amidst all the academia and achievement of cinematic prowess, Ethan found time for love; after dating here and there, he even married his film school sweetheart, Cara Fitzgibbon, and lived with her in Boston. Alas, it wasn't meant to be -- Cara found out that she married too young three years too late and left Ethan with a broken heart and a rather roomy apartment. Though it's been a little over a year since the divorce became final, he's still in the process of recovery.
Personality: Laid-back; great sense of humor; relatable; fun to be around -- all key words and phrases that encompass the psyche of Mr. Ethan Reznick. If there was ever a big kid trapped in a somewhat-grown-up-human-being's body, he would be your guy. He's around if you ever just need someone to talk to, or someone to laugh with (or at, as the case tends to be with him), or even someone who you'll always know still actually watches his favorite cartoons faithfully. Ethan also knows when it's time to be serious; he's great with the jokes, but he won't be an ignorant ass about it. Granted, he is male, so it was inevitable that he'd make some statement that would rub his girlfriend at the time the wrong way. Good thing is, while Ethan may be great at unintentionally screwing things up, he's even better at apologizing for it. There are some things, though, that are contradictory to his nature and pop up from time to time. Since he happens to be approaching his thirty-year life crisis, he's preparing for the worst. The nearer it draws, he can't seem to see himself relying too keenly on his ability to let the rough things in life just slide off his back, especially given his inate fear regarding all signs of aging like most of his species. But don't worry -- there will be no purchasing of any type of heavy machinery or sporty automobiles to overcompensate any time in the near future. He'd plug away at it, just like he did with everything else. You wouldn't find him spouting nonsense like, "When life gets you down, just go make lemonade" or however the saying goes -- but he's not one whose spirits are easily dampened. A sad aspect of Ethan's nature is that he happens to be quite the romantic; he continually wears his heart on his sleeve and, as his history indicates, he tends to pay for it in a major way. Lucky for him and his sanity, bouncing back is another trait he's on his way to mastering.
Editorial: Ah those kids and their games...really, Ethan doesn't like to judge. He won't try to make someone feel bad for their actions just because he happens to disapprove. And plus, shock of all shocks, he was a teenager once himself, doing stupid shit, getting in trouble, and loving every minute of it. All in all, hypocrisy isn't a very attractive trait. He does, however, know what to do in a situation, should it happen to occur, where a member of the aforementioned game party might accost him for whatever reason -- just smile, nod, then walk away.
Crush: Once Ethan finds out what it means to have some semblance of a social life again, he just might take the time to date around. But all previous long-term relationships taken into account, it would probably be a little while before he actually felt comfortable taking any action in the dating field. Attraction-wise, Michelle DeVoss was definitely cute, though nothing would come of it.

Taken By: The Fifth Element
Name: Danica Hollander
Position: Teacher | French (Beg/Int/Adv); Art; French, Art, & Dance Club Coordinator; Senior Homeroom
Theme Song: Teardrop - Massive Attack
History: Born to Jakob and Mireille Hollander, he being an American-Dutch-German architect and she being a French painter and artist, Danica Noelle Hollander was raised for the earliest years of her life on the countryside just shy of Strasbourg, Alsace-Lorraine (a province between France and Germany). Because of his trade, her father commuted between the city and home to provide for his wife and three children, Danica being the youngest with an older brother and sister, Luke and Renee. Her strongest aspirations developed at a young age, and she took to both dance, notably ballet, and painting, however elementary at first and, of course, to her mother's uninvasive delight. In the Hollander household, education came first, and Danica received the best her parents could offer her, which came in the form of a solid homeschooling, to which she then applied to earning her BFA from both Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in Brittany, France, and Parsons Paris School of Design by the summer of her eighteenth birthday. Having kept up her talent and knack for dancing, Danica joined the Paris Opera Ballet and remained there for almost three years, later as a principal. Thanks to her tall, lean build, she experimented with modelling in brief spurts, what with living in the heart of one of the fashion capitals of the world and all, but quickly decided it wasn't for her and stuck with dance. After receiving a call for another principal dancer position at Boston Ballet, and also best wishes from her family, she moved to the US. Danica remained with the company for the next few years until she figured out she'd rather take some time off from being in the spotlight and switch to teaching. The ballet kindly referred her to Weston High once the positions opened up, and, after a good year under her belt, she happens to be settling in quite nicely.
Personality: There isn't really one word that could be used to describe what kind of person Danica Hollander is -- and truth be told, she wouldn't want there to be. She actually happens to ascribe to the belief that being multidimensional is one of the best character traits a person can have. Lack of versatility leads to familiarity, which can then lead to boredom, which can lead to a feeling of hollowness, which is also associated with the word "hollow", which happens to be the first part of the film name "Hollow Man", which stars Kevin Bacon! The six degrees of Kevin Bacon! I know, you didn't even know I was going there! Honestly though, Danica would want to be seen as someone who fits into multiple molds because of her multiple interests; she enjoys walks on the beach and painting a landscape just as much as having a little too much to drink on Hump Day with her friends or co-workers. Though increasingly French, she is without what some would call the atypical snottiness or insolence -- actually, she likes a good French joke. If you can't laugh at yourself, why should you get to laugh at anyone else? Besides no one would know she was half French unless she told them or started rattling off in the language; she lost her accent ages ago.
Editorial: Women tend to have a keen intuition when it comes to certain things; they know what's going on without having to be told. Danica is one of those women. She's not stupid, she has eyes. And it's not like the local teenage population try to hide the fact that they bonk each other left and right then move on to the next warm body without a care in the world like it's their job. Thankfully, as far as she's concerned, she has faculty immunity. Or at least she hopes she does. She's not the type to lecture or force her input where it's not wanted, but if she's asked what she truthfully thinks of the whole "game", she won't sugarcoat. If the players are so brazenly obvious about their participation, what's to stop her from being just as brazen about her opinions?
Crush: What? In this school? It's bad enough trying to find a decent guy to date who is under the age of twenty-five. She's not dead, though; Bryce Cunningham is certainly nothing to sneeze at, but she doesn't do the dating-in-the-work-place thing. Professionalism is paramount. In reality, she doesn't have time for dating -- teaching takes up a lot of it, and her hobbies take up the rest. Being single has its rewards too -- she's got her art, a great view of the city from her loft, and her two cats, Stella and Pumpkin (both breeds of tabby -- Stella's multicolored mostly brown, gray and black with white paws; Pumpkin's still close to a kitten, and she's lightly striped orange and white, kinda like a creamsicle...don't ask me why I explained all that just now...must be my pet lover coming out and rearing its furry head). Not too much to complain about.
PB: Charlize Theron
Alrighty then, got all the relationship goodies done. Figured I'd post them here in case they needed to be viewed:
Players - The Targets
[Nolan McAllister]: One wouldn't think it by looking at him, or being around him, or even talking to him, but our friend Nolan happens to be a one-woman guy -- well, in the sense that every girl he's with thinks they're the only one. That counts right? Eh maybe not, but who ever said these things had to be logical. The current list he happened to be amassing was compiled with utmost care and consideration; in the case of bedding and heartbreaking, one has to take precautions, you see. And who should be the lucky victims chosen for his next round of shameless entertainment? Well first you'd have to knock out the easy targets versus the challenging ones. Easy targets would include such characters as Diana Morgan and Frankie Federico -- nothing to be ashamed of. After all, there is something to be said for a reliable piece of ass. There was actually a whole other category altogether -- the not-so-challenging ones, but still not to be confused with the easy ones. Females like Catalina Gutierre would be among those counted and remained as such because, well, frankly he'd never taken the opportunity to capitalize on her crush in particular. But hell yeah, he knew about it. Then there were the actually challenging targets -- the ones that really got under his skin, because in actuality he doesn't want them, but the sheer fact that they probably don't want him either drives him up a fucking wall, and he hasn't figured out how to deal with it. So he's chosen them to be his prospects, his potential success stories. Something to make his senior year go a little faster. Natalie Giordano is at the top of that list, for the most part. Her total dedication to religious practices and complete abhorrence for the tasteless behavior from the game participants alone would warrant some kind of intrigue from him, her polar opposite in every way possible. He knew he didn't stand a chance -- she probably had infantry and cavalry surrounding the 20-foot-thick outer wall that guarded the keep to her locked virginity, but she wouldn't be a challenge if she didn't. Something had to be said for Eliza Echolls hotness, but his ability to generate the necessary amount of effort to find out if the packaging was worth it hadn't yet registered in his brain. There were also those who he knows do not like him and yet he knows he could have them if he really wanted to try hard enough, Tanner West and Fiona Cooper-Davenport being among them. A bit young on Fiona's part, but at least not a freshman. He wanted to keep his options open on all playing fields, but everyone needs goals.
[Celinda Garrett]: A lot of guys could try and occasion enough brain power to form their own typical opinions about what kind of person Celinda was behind closed doors, but chances are all they'd be left with would be some confusing unanswered questions and a hard on the size of Texas. It's probably what made her participation in the game so effortless -- she felt no shame in taking what she needed from such mindless neanderthals on a regular basis. At the end of the day, she got what she wanted and was, for the most part, satisfied in that acquisition (though on some occasions, she'd have been better off taking care of matters herself). There had been a couple of rather messy situations, namely a little debaucle with one Kasey Morgan involving some anal retentive parentals, a few heavy charges and some even heavier PDAs. Ultimately, though, it just ended up being another story she could tell herself when she was having doubts that the male species weren't actually worthless altogether. While she's pretty sure she'll always have him as a back-up screw in case things turned bad and she only had a ludicrous amount of guys to choose from, she had set her sights on a few potentialities. Nicholas Tam was just one of those unavoidables -- hot and fully aware of it, and a little friction between the sheets or some action on a random flat surface wouldn't be discounted as something in the foreseeable future. If she could call herself forming anything of a bond with anyone, and if you could even call it that, she'd have to go with Christopher Graham; they seemed to share the same aversion for all things touchy-feely when it came to sex...seriously, it was hard enough to even expect a guy to have the ability to get you off, why bother adding superfluous nuances like "feelings" and "emotions" to the already confusing mix? Dear God, what a snorefest. She'd take a big no-thank-you helping from that potential migraine from hell, thank you very much. The wherewithall of such innocents (and they were only innocent in comparison -- she didn't really know anything about them and would probably keep it that way) as Chase Halvorson didn't go ignored either. It wasn't in the bag as most mutual attractions go, but she was pretty confident it wouldn't take much.
Others - The Crushes
[Micah Dunlevy]: Mentioning the subject of girls or relationships would probably earn you a good evasive non-conversation from Micah, especially were the subject to be breached around his foster mother, unlikely though it may have been. It just wasn't his favorite topic...or his second favorite...or really his anything favorite. There was just no reason to talk about it; talking didn't get things done anyway. Being a heterosexual male, he wasn't novice to the concept of attraction; this was proved in his perspective on Isobel Wescott -- cute and sweet in that introverted way which he couldn't deny was something that demanded at least a little bit of attention. He wouldn't have minded if they maybe had something of a friendship that led to more. But, as aforemented, it wasn't something he dwelled on. Chloe Kostas was pretty easy on the eyes too, if we're strictly talking surface, which we are since he doesn't really know her or much about her. That wasn't to say he wouldn't make the leap if he had to; he was just too busy with other matters, like taking care of his car and fulfilling his duties in the Anime Club. If for no other reason than to ease the chiding from his foster mom when he actually called her, he'd find a girl eventually.
[Aubrey St. John]: It would've been easy to blame Aubrey's lack of a sex life on her hectic school schedule or an endless list of extra curriculars, but truth be told, she wasn't really all that keen on what she'd come to know as The Game (not the rapper). If she was supposed to have sex with a guy, she'd have had it by now -- no need in going around sampling from everything with genitalia and a moderate source of experience. She'd had boyfriends, it just hadn't ever gotten that involved; so she couldn't be classified as one of those girls who wrote off sex and relationships because they'd never sampled either. However, strictly speaking from her powers of observation, she wouldn't have minded a little one-on-one interaction with guys like Tristan Cochran and Holden Harrell. She didn't really understand a lot of the cultural courting differences between Americans and Brits, but she was learning. And since acceptable English guys were about one in a bagillion, and if she had to take her chances, she'd take them with those two in mind. She also couldn't deny the appeal of Jameson Montague, if for nothing else, than the sheer fact that he just did whatever the hell he wanted to whoever the hell he wanted. Wasn't a crush...more of a fascination with the outcome of all his conquests. Kind of like an addiction to a really bad soap. In reality, Aubrey never discounted a guy she was attracted to unless he opened his mouth and ruined things for himself. Then there wasn't really anything she could do for him.
Taken By: The Fifth Element
Name: Aubrey St. John
Theme Song: Into The Fire - Thirteen Senses
History: Born to a French mother and a British father (Lord only knows how that worked out), Aubrey grew up sensibly. Not a lot of frills, just the basics -- food, shelter, and dysfunction. Between her parents frequent bouts with conflict and separation, she was fortunate enough to be instated with a bilingual background and the trademark British wit, though how she ended up with a predominant British accent would be attributed to the time she spent with her father in London. Six years. She talked to her mother on the phone on occasion, but she was pretty much a one-parent child for the latter part of her young life. She made friends easy enough, saw some sites, got hit up to do some British TV spots, and became quite familiar with her English roots. But it wasn't until the adults of the family realized they'd been acting like anything but that she finally regained some semblance of a "normal life" -- the parents got over their qualms and quarrels, and Aubrey was able to live comfortably with the both of them in the US. A couple years later, they moved to Boston in favor of her father's medical profession. As far as schooling, Weston was the obvious choice, and it's exactly where she plans to finish out her adolescent education. College, career, marriage and babies can wait a bit.
Personality: You'd think that one might become discouraged with growing up thin, lanky and pale. But Aubrey was always too cynical to care about shallow things like that. She embraced her awkwardness, even embellished it a little from time to time. The real awkwardness came overnight when she and about 75% of the male population around her discovered she'd filled out. Not fleshy by any means, but she had certainly developed in areas that were otherwise lacking. Even still, none of it went to her head. Relying on looks is a crutch of the weak. You can find that and other such wise sayings at Aubrey's website, DailyProverbs.com. She enjoys all the natural things of life -- music, art, reading, maybe a little theater here and there to keep up her guilty flare for the dramatic. Really though, in all her sarcastic glory, she does retain an ounce or two of optimism. If things are meant to work out, they will. If they aren't, they won't. There was probably a more specific word to describe that, but she'd never bothered to look it up. Her angelic countenance is deceitful -- young and inexperienced she may be, if there's one thing she prides herself on being, it's being keen to her surroundings, to what's going on around her. There's not enough hours in the day to waste time on being naive.
Extra Curriculars: Art Group, French Club, Theater Company
Editorial: Is Aubrey privy to the goings-on of the local less-than-saintly youth? Why wouldn't she be, she doesn't live under a rock. She's not likely to fall prey to any member of the offending party, but she does keep her eyes and ears open at all times. Who's to say what she would and wouldn't do with the right person at the right time with the right music and the right lighting. They make movies and crappy teen TV dramas about it all the time.
