This story follows Lola Fuentes, a strong willed young woman whose dream is to one day be a prima ballerina.
This is easier said than done. While she's athletic and skilled, she has no formal training and her struggling
family cannot afford to send her to the prestigious ballet school of her dreams: Bellamy Conservatory.
Upon discovering that the school offers a single full scholarship every year, Lola takes it upon herself to make
a submission tape that will blow them all away. It has everything, from neon leggings to strobe lights, all set
to the song 'Wannabe' by the Spice Girls. Honestly it was a bit of a train wreck but for some mysterious reason,
one week later she received her formal invitation to the academy.
No one knows why the Dean decided to accept her into the school, but it's obvious the rest of the students
and staff don't approve of her being there. Lola is different in more ways than one, but she's dead set on
proving them all wrong and getting the lead in the end of the semester performance of Swan Lake. Will she
discover the Dean's ulterior motives or even fall in love along the way? It's up to you to find out.
I know this type of story can be misinterpreted, so I want to make note
of some basic info on the game.
-Lola is an underdog in the sense of her lack of professional experience,
not in her skill level. She's an amazing athlete and with slightly different
but still impressive talent.
-There will not be any weight loss or conforming to standard ballet norms in order
for Lola to get to her goals. That is not what this game is about. She
will have to refine her skills and techniques but this is a game about how
everyone is different and how it honestly doesn't matter that much.
-This is not a stat raiser game. It is 100% story driven.
-The GxG routes are as thought out and developed as the GxB ones. There will
not be any gay fetishizing. Just people falling in love with whomever they choose.
-If you have any concerns please let me know! It helps me as a creator to make
a better and more enjoyable game. : )
Lola: The main character. Lola is spunky and outgoing with a hot headed passion for ballet.
She grew up in a large mexican family with 4 older brothers, so wrestling and arguing are second nature
to her. Lola will fight for what she wants, and only her own naivity and ditzy innocence will get in her way.
Naoko: Lola's roomate, a petite beauty with lots of talent for dancing,
which is pushed to the extreme due to intense pressure from her family and high
expectations. She was raised by her very traditional Japanese grandmother and
her elegance and calm demeanor reflects that. It would be easy for Naoko to
develop into a rival but is ballet but she seems uninterested in her competition.
Does Naoko even enjoy ballet anymore? And what is she really like under her
soft spoken facade.
Felix: A student teacher at Bellamy right out of college and studying for
his masters in choreography. Felix grew up in Puerto Rico before moving to the
US with his father in highschool. He's extra harsh and strict with Lola, a complete
no-nonsense personality during school hours. Does he dislike her, or is he pushing her to succeed?
Eli: A senior at Bellamy and the premier male lead in all of the plays. He's
used to getting what he wants, and makes dancing look easy, but is he more than a
handsome face and a charming personality? Eli hasn't seen his family from Russia in
nearly a decade, having been raised by the Dean of the school specifically for his ballet prowess.
Cait: Lola's rival, the current premier female lead in the school, though
her dancing abilities are not quite up to par with what you would expect. Could
this favoritism be due to donations her two mothers make to the school, or perhaps
Cait's love for collecting and creating gossip to use against anyone that stands in her way.
Tucker: A prodigy pianist who is as talented as he is adorkable. Despite his
abilities, he still has a day job at the ballet school, composing music for their productions.
This humbleness and work ethic come from his endearing parents, both success stories
in their own right as doctors. Tucker befriends Lola quickly and roots for her behind
the scenes and is a very sweet and caring individual.
The Dean, Monsieur Bellamy: A mysterious man who is rarely seen or heard from.
He is soley responsible for Lola's admittance to the school. Was he impressed with her,
or is it all some cruel joke. Rumors are that Monsieur Bellamy was slated to become
famous in his youth, due to elegance and precision unmatched, but was injured in a car
accident that ended his budding career. They also say he's bitter towards anyone with
the abilities to someday surpass his former skill level. The only student to know what
he looks like is Eli, who was taken in by Monsieur Bellamy over ten years ago.
Madame Bellamy: Monsieur Bellamy's younger sister, the much less reclusive of the
two. She only received minor success as a dancer, and now teaches at the conservatory.
She's known for being strict for rules and tradition as well as being ruthless with her students.
Madame Bellamy picks favorites early in the year and makes life hell for those she doesn't approve of.
