Meh, It's late, but I've been meaning to do this... Check back for acctual details.
So. Stories. Ya.
My b.rain just keeps turning out all these characters (as if I didn't have enough all ready...), some with basic plots attached. These guys I'll be talking about are on probation. They have little to no story, and basic characterization for the most part. I may use them, I may not.
Which b.rings me to why I'm doing this; It'll help me keep track of them all, and maybe make me decide who I keep, and who ends up in the trash bin. Comments from you are welcome too, I'd love to have a bit of help.
EDIT: While some of these stories are genuinly non developed, a lot on this list these days are just my fairly developed but not fequently disscused consepts. Therefore, this is now more of a database of the ideas/characters I don't generally make dolls for or lack their own section in my stories dedicated to them.

Other n. charas- Victoria (champion swimmer)
Other n.n. charas- N/A

Other n. charas- Anahera, Nereida (a mermaid)
Other n.n charas- other mythical creatures that closly resemble humans
Name- Gravity Noble/ Tigeress
S. title- N/A! In fact, the plot I'm toying w/ lends its self a bit more to a RP (But I haven't role played in years, I'm out of practice, and I was trained on a weird format that no one other than me seems to have seen before/likes useing...)!
Summary- Sci Fi! And that's about it, other than this "pitch" for the plot/Gravity's character: The known worlds are at seeming peace, yet many live in fear of the Tigeress- a mysterious assasin, who is cold blooded and merciless. Her alliance is to the highest bidder, not to any crown nor political leader. The citizens whisper of this woman in fear around tavern tables, if they dare speak of her at all. What is known is meer rumor, but most everyone agrees that she is an emotionless killer. They cling to eachother, and look to their leaders for guidance, for surly they offer some protection... Or are they the cold blooded ones?
Other n. charas- N/A
Other n.n. charas- N/A
Name- Hayden Paige
S. title- Shift
Summary- In a nut shell, he's a cocky-ish time traveler... I'm still playing around with the specifics, but the basic WIP plot is as follows: There is some sort of funded time travel research facility that few know about. After seemingly sucessfull tests on animals, they are finaly cleared to use their creation on a human being-- a young twenty-something former pilot for the UN (honestly though, I have no idea what he was doing for them...), Hayden Paige. The tests on him run with only minor set backs, and they are in the middle of an experiment which sends him a little farther back in time than usual when the facility is attacked and taken over by snubbed investors. Next, the staff begins mysteriously dropping dead, leaving only one operator alive back in the present to try to get Hayden back without the captors noticing, all the while trying to stay alive herself...
Other n. charas- Jennifer (captive operator), Asher Rendón (Robert's estranged son that disappeared under mysterious circumstances), Robert Hughes (lead researcher), Adam Hughes (funder, Rob's b.rother), Amanda (Asher's late girlfriend, former operator)
Other n.n. charas- various villainous bad guys, various people Hayden and Asher encounter across time, other employees of Robert, other people in Hayden and Jen's lives
Name- Aaron Pittaluga
S. title- Dark Prophet
Summary- Aaron is a privateer on the Merry Trident-- a large ship well known throught the community as being the best in the business. At home he engaged and all is good. Unfortunetly for him, he is cursed by an ancient relic and thrown overboard by his captain (who's only real interest is his own self preservation). By a lucky chance he is saved by a mermaid and taken to shore...

S. title- Allerleirauh
Summary- In a nut shell, just a novella/novel based on the fairytales "The Many Furred Creature", "Catskin", and other simmilar ones.
For the long answer, she is the only child of a powerful but unstable king. Her mother always did her best to protect Faith-Anne, but after she died Faith was left at the mercy of her father (see the original tales for details on that, I don't feel like typeing them).
One other important detail: Faith-Anne's (unnamed) kingdom has been at war for centuries with another near by one, Allerleirauh. Faith-Anne loaths the idea of going there, but in the end that's her only option to escape her father's plans...
Other n. charas- Genesis (the one and only heir to the throne of Allerleirauh, one of Faith-Anne's few allies and her semi-LI)
Other n.n. charas- Nearly everyone
Name- Julian Revie
S. title- N/A
Summary- Your classic whodunnit. Someone gets murdered, friend takes blame, main character teams up with unlikely ally, main character proves law enforcment wrong... You get the idea. Fun part about this story though, most of the charas are members of a sucessful band, and it's their manager that gets killed. Jullian is their drummer.
Other n. charas- Effie Williams (best friend of Julian, bassist, accused of murder), Seoirse Blake* (friend of Effie, only other person who believes she's innocent, currently secondary guitarist and co-lead vocalist, replacement of Tate... also worth a note: birth surname was Mullen, changed it as adult), Vera Parish (lead guitarist and co-lead vocalist), Zoe Alamilla (pianist), Yvon Marchand (current violinist, Riley's replacement), Riley Lange (former violinist, quit after wife died in car accident to take care of daughter), Tate Boone (former bandmate of Julian, Effie, Vera, and Zoe; officially quit but continues to write all of their music), Chet Revie (Julian's father, retired police officer, offers to help Julian and Seoirse), Monte Roscoe* (retired police officer, famous for capturing Dollmaker killer, currently private investigator, latest in string of PIs hired by Seoirse's mother, friend of Chet)

Name- Emery J. Michaels / Elijah Michaels
S. title- I actually have several titles up in the air, but for the moment I'm going with Little Death
Summary- This story has a few parallel plots running at the same time, so bare with me here: After decades of cripling decreases in funding, NASA has essentially been reduced to duties of maintaining satellites pertaining to climate research. Exploring space has been left to private corporations, who make sure each expedition they plan becomes a media sensation. One such mission, the Vesta, sends a crew to ???? (some moon or planet, haven't decided), and livestreams every moment of their journey... Including their slow deaths by radiation poisoning casued by poor planning. Seizing the opportunity to matter once again, NASA begins planning their own sesational expedition to ????? (possibly Io, but that's also one of the contenders for the place of the failed Vesta mission, so maybe not), but along the way they make several of the same mistakes as their private competitors.
The story will mainly flip back and forth between the lives of a father and son pair. Emery is a young astronaut chosen by NASA to command the first Persephone mission to ?????, not because of his experience or skill, but rather because he appeals well to the american public (in fact, he is even ordered to grow his hair out because it "tested better with focus groups"). When things innevitably go wrong, he is left alone and unprepared to cope with the circumstances. His father, Elijah, meanwhile is left on earth and forced to deal with the public eye constantly intruding on his family's lives and the knowledge that his son is seemingly doomed to die in space because of NASA's hastiness of preparation and focus on entertainment over discovery.
Other n. charas- Rachel, Emery's casual fling back on Earth, that he regrets not having more than a physical relationship with (in the abstract, at least); Shiloh, a low-on-the-totem-pole NASA worker (haven't decided on his exact job yet) who is forced away from his duties to keep an eye on the family memebers of the Persephone crew and keep them informed; Avery Minett, an electrical engineer (?) that began on the Persephone 1 B crew, but was reassigned to the A crew at the last second
Other n.n. charas- the rest of the Persephone 1 crew, the B crew, various NASA officials, Elijah's ex/Emery's mother, other people in Emery and/or Elijah's lives, the rest of the Minett family, the rest of the Persephone 1 crew's families
