10; Solomon Captor, we all know how that went.
9; Francesca Peixes, how unfortunate it didn't work.
8;Jade Harley, you were friends and that was all.
7;Rose Lalonde, you liked her. Maybe she liked you too, but it never came to anything.
6; Karen Maryam. She was a lesbian, and you had that odd type of friendship where you both sort of actually hated eachother, but played it for laughs.
5; Mayor Johnson. His parents were pretty messed up, explaining his name. He was too childish to fall in love, but it was one of the best relations you've had. You protected him.
4;Gary Makara. Oh no. Just, no. We don't talk about this one.
3; Tyrone Nitram. You sort of scared him away.
2; Narissa Leijon. Ignored, you got a little distracted after you scared away Tyrone and spent about ten years catching up on the times.

Your name is DAVE STRIDER and this is how it RESUMES.
A year after the party and a year after the time you saved a nerd's v-card.
Well, approximately a year.

Your name is DAVE STRIDER and guess what? You're dead.
Her name is FRANCESCA PEIXES and she is the second chance you're taking.
You sought her out as soon as Solomon hit twenty. She had a much better reaction to your existence than he did. "OH MY GLUB A R-E-EL ACTUAL GHOST! THIS IS SOOOO -EXCITING!" Was exactly what she said when you first showed yourself to her. She's a funny girl. Easily excitable, loves fish. Adorable, and some might call her pretty. You've disproved your theory of automatically crushing on anyone who can see you, because while she's nice, it's not stupid creepy reverse necrophilia at first sight.
You have to admit, she's a lot more fun to be around than Sol had been. In fact, you wonder if whatever power is in charge mixed up you with one of the friendship criteria, because this fishy girl is the greatest friend that anyone could ask for. Most of the time. She has a hidden mean streak, b

Your name is Dave Strider and your first attempt at the 13 you'll get with the three you've already wasted, was a major failure. More like 12 tries anyway, you think. Since you'll only have two years with the last of them. You spent a year after your crude rejection wandering about wherever the wind took you. No literally, you just became semi-tangible and floated anywhere. But now, you're back in the town, in the school, in the stairwell. Thinking maybe he'll see you and feel guilty. He does a few times. He makes no eye contact. Barely looks at you. You can't tell if he feels bad about the way he treated you, but chances are, he doesn't.
"Hell0, y0u." A girl speaks to you one day. You don't understand-it hasn't been Sol's seven years yet. Maybe his acquiring of disdain for you swapped it over to another at a similar age to him? You don't reply, just looking at her and trying to fig

His name is SOLOMON CAPTOR. He is FIFTEEN YEARS OLD and he can SEE YOU.
He wears these ridiculously thick glasses, never matches his socks, matches his shoes with a similar consistency, and has two different colored eyes. Before you've even talked to him, you can tell he's a bit of an oddball. Note- A cute oddball. Sure, his hair is a bit odd, definitely not as fluffy as you'd like, but not every potential love interest can be a Karl. Potential love intererest... that brings up an interesting point. Do you automatically crush on everyone who can see you? Do you ONLY see them as potential love interests, or are there any that say, you could only feel for platonically and just be out of luck for that raffle?
It only gets better when you actually go ahead and meet him.
"HOLY THIT WHAT THE!" He sort of freaks out when you show up. Understandably so. Even if his phrasing is a bit too mod
