Hey everyone,
sorry its taken me so long, now that this is around 1/2 over I assume.
My character is Marisol M. Her email is marisol.moreno.nobrakes at gmail. She doesn't neccessarily live in L.A now. In fact, she is constantly wandering. She rides a bike as her email might suggest but also uses fixed gear bike riding as a euphenism of sorts for her own desperation (sorry fixies on list, shes just a character!) and romantic suicidal ways. She is always slow on things and anticipates that when she does have something to say she is too late.
She has lived in san Francisco, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Philly etc and done the street races in Japan recently. Few friends, she has a "crowd", and instant scene of sorts but is drab lonely and pining for something new.
She will probably in the beginning look for bike related sites and gentrification ones like curbed etc. Gentrification is in particular relevant because she will always arrive to a site looking for a community and realize she is just room candy like everyone else.
