Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"What does it mean to be a gentleman? Is it an outdated concept? Or is there really a perfect model for a man in particular to follow that's still relevant to our times? Does it matter? And is that truly a good thing? According to L.J. Powell, before you can ask that question, you first have to ask one simple question: what does it mean to be a gentleman? I'll jump in to what Powell thinks in a minute... but first, what do you think it means? Just the first thing that comes to mind."
Line 2:
"[This is the part where John clearly is going to lecture Taylor about bullying Nolan and Akira about their relationship a.k.a. clingy and very nosy, arrogant ex-gf kind of behavior, have him sound upset and very disappointed in here] Before I begin... Taylor? In my office, right after your last class. Is that understood? Good. Now, onto the story that you were all supposed to read last night..."
Line 3:
"[later on in his office he begins the lecture to Taylor, upset, yelling tone] Taylor? Don't insult my intelligence. You know exactly what this is about. I heard the whole story. With all given respect, what the hell is wrong with you?! If I didn't know you better, I wouldn't have even believed it. This is the archetypal crazy ex-girlfriend story. You're a cliché. You're an insane cliché. How could you possibly be such an awful person to him? Did you just not consider his feelings? What could have convinced you that harassing some poor boy into dumping his boyfriend was okay? Do you just not understand how horrible that is?! Taylor. In the real world, what you've done is called harassment. Any employer would fire you on the spot for it. I'm being really accomodating here, by giving you a second chance, and I don't have to. You could be expelled. I'm willing to do it."

Line 2:
"That's okay! Why don't we walk together, then? We can share mine! Come on, you don't want to be caught out in that storm, do you? You'd get soaked, and probably get sick, for sure. Really, it wouldn't be a problem!"
Line 3:
"[if player decided to not to kiss Arianna and choosing "being a jerk" answers to Arianna. Worried tone] I promise I won't tell anyone! Mr. Rook, I really like you, I just want — [after John Rook said following to arianna: *I'm your teacher. You're a cute girl who obviously knows how to use her charms; you shouldn't be chasing guys over twice your age. You can do better.* Still be worried] No, I couldn't. Don't be so hard on yourself... you're hot, you're smart, and you're modest. Of course I like you. There's nothing wrong with that. [slight pause, now beginning to cry] I... I... I just... I thought... [John tells her to go back to her home] Fine! Forget it! Forget I said anything... I... I... [and runs off]"

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"Excuse me, Mr. Rook? Do you mind if we eat our lunches in here? It's what we used to do with our old homeroom teacher. Cafeteria is just incredibly unpleasant. If it's a problem, we'll understand, but... [after john said it's ok to eat lunch at class] Thank you."
Line 2:
"[in this line she means Kendall which she used to have a relationship with] It's fine, Bella. Why has everyone assumed that just because we fought, it means I don't ever want to speak of her ever again? She's still my friend. We just need some time apart right now, that's all. There's no drama, it's over with."
Line 3:
"I didn't really do much. Just homework and some shopping. [to Akira when he admitted that he have... well... "come out from the closet"] Heehee, is this about your 'coming out?' I'm sorry, but that was pretty funny."

Eye Color: Red
Hair Color: Orange
Hair Length: To Shoulders
Apparent Age: Teen
Birthday: December 30th 2010

Probably the most quiet ones in the game, which everyone thinks she died later in the game but in fact just had to move to other area due some problems, and she says later in the game that she died in social-wise.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"Don't... Ohmigod, don't bring it up..."
Line 2:
"I don't know. I think Kendall does, but is being difficult."
Line 3:
"[Isabella opens up to Arianna via computer] His name was Alan Mason. He was my first boyfriend ever, back when I was 13, and... well, at least, if you ask me, we were dating. We spent all our lunch hours together, walked home together every day, and spent our evenings talking endlessly about the silly music we both liked. He was a year younger, and wasn't I guess the most mature boy around — all my friends always made fun of him — but I really admired him, you know?
[Slight pause]

Every time we meet, it's always the same. He says we should see each other more than only every half a year accidentally, or something like that. And we agree that we should meet again soon and talk, catch up. And deep in my heart I hope that it leads to something more. That maybe now that we're both older and wiser we could have a real relationship; I'd love nothing more than that. I secretly dream of all the dates we could have that he would be proud to tell his friends about.

We never do, of course. We never even end up meeting that once to catch up. I saw him at a concert just the other month; and while all those possibilities flashed in my mind, I approached him, and we ended up going home together. Just like the old times. And we agreed we should meet up again soon to do something.

But we didn't, of course. We never do. It doesn't stop me from imagining it; but I realize, in all those fantasies of love... I don't know him at all. I don't think it's even him that matters, really, he just happens to fill the role. I'm in love with the idea of Alan Mason, and nothing more."

"[worried tone, in the scene where John lectures her] Hi, Mr. Rook... What's this about...? Oh... is this about Akira? What did he tell you? He seemed really upset at me for some reason, like he was blaming me for —"
Line 2:
"[after John interrupted her in order to lecture more shouting and kind of hysterical/sad/worried tone same time] I don't care! Fine! Put his feelings ahead of mine. Let the girl cry, but rush in to defend the boy. I don't care about his [bleeping] feelings! [after John said he doesn't care what she thinks and tells her to stop bullying Nolan and Akira] Well... ...well, that's retarded. That's bull[bleep]. That is... that's retarded.

Line 3:
"[after John threatened her to be expelled from the school, smug]Lol. Try it! [John said he's serious] So am I! Great, the school has some stupid policy about protecting young men from dangerous girls! [and now she has happy face but not happy HAPPY face more like smugly happy] I wonder, what's the policy on having jail bait in your home? On your lap? Do you think the school will really care that she hasn't sucked your [beep] yet?"

Line 3:
"Please, just call me Ichigo. Why don't you have a seat? John, I just came here to apologize for how the prank with Isabella got out of hand. I thought it would be a funny way to get you to lighten up, and encouraged it... ...but I didn't realize Akira was sending you creepy messages at all hours of the night. And Katelyn went a little over the top. I want to apologize on their behalf."

"It would have been so easy! Y-you just had to say something! B-but no, you had to let her die... [creepy smile] It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter... She'll come back for you. Isabella will come back for you... for one last goodbye."

He's one of the another "special couple" characters with Nolan... let's just say he's the one "coming out of the closet".

Line 3:
"So Charlotte, when are you going to forgive Kendall? I don't like having to avoid either one of my friends or the other! Can't you two just go back to getting along? Don't you think so, Mr. Rook? Wouldn't it be better if they made up?"

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"[To John, trying to figure out what to do with his feelings towards Akira at first] Uh, hey. You know how you said if we ever had a problem... um... I mean, can I ask you for some advice? [when John asks what's the problem] Not now, I mean... it's a big thing. Could we talk tomorrow? [and after John agrees to meet him in his office] That's good. Yeah, thanks, sir."
Line 2:
"Uh, hey, sir. [John guesses the problem is about Akira] ...I... yeah. How did you know? I'm just shocked by... the whole thing. I don't know how to respond. How do you respond to that? ...I guess he didn't actually care, or was too distracted to. Still. I should be more careful next time."
Line 3:
"The thing is... um, I don't know how to say this without sounding pathetic. It's not like I'm desperate. I don't want to say yes to him just because I'm desperate to be close to someone. There's pathetic, and then there's pathetic. It's just... he likes me. He barely knows me, but he feels so strongly that he's willing to embarrass himself for the chance to get closer to me. For me. For me! What the [bleep] is up with that? Then I thought, maybe it's just desperation. There aren't that many boys at this school. Look at him. He's hot, man. I don't mean... I don't — you know. I'm not gay, I'm not attracted to men, it's just... objectively, right? You know what I mean?"

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why does my MP3 not upload?
We understand that some users are getting errors when uploading MP3 files. Certain encodings will not be compatible with the upload code. Originally Audacity saved MP3s worked at the time Casting Call was written. However the software may have changed the way it saves MP3s. At an unknown future time, the process will change where auditions will be recorded and saved directly on the site. In the meantime, please ask fellow members who have success with MP3 uploads how they are saving/encoding their files. Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
• How do I contact members cast for a project?
You can contact members using Private Messaging feature available here in the forums.
