Mostly M/M and K/T but the others can go in wherever you want.


Max and Liz either own their own small company and need some big time advertising to boost sells or they work for a big company where it's their job to come up with advertising for the company.They can be best friends with no romance ever between them or just coworkers.

Max some how meets and talks big time sports star Kyle Valenti into being their new spokesman for their company. When he approaches Liz with it she's less than enthused with the idea. She's not taken with the idea of a dumb jock being their new add campaign.

But when Liz meets Kyle she is shocked. Instead of a conceited dumb jock she meets a nice guy,open and into mental things like Buddhism and philosophy. Kyle and Liz hit it off and start to hang out/date. At first Max is cool with it but when Liz starts to slip away he realizes his feelings for her and is not happy.

On the Tess side she is Kyle's sports agent. She was raised by a closed off father where all that mattered was money and power. She is a bit of a cold fish who is cut throat at her job known as the Blonde Barracuda. But she has a secret .......she's madly in love with Kyle, her client,but due to her cold upbringing she doesn't quite now how to show/tell Kyle. She is also NOT happy when Kyle and Liz hit it off and start hanging out.

Tess and Max must work together to break them up

Must haves

No evil Tess.........she can be a cold one due to her upbringing but not evil........and ends K/T

Liz,Maria,Isabel and Tess have been the best of friends ever since meeting in college their first year there.Now some years later they are having lunch together and discussing an up coming reunion... ..for the college or something else.

All four girls are in between boyfriends at the moment and so they make a good natured bet. They plan on seeing who can bring the most successful date to the reunion. Maybe some money is involved in the bet?

The girls go out and do their best to meet the most successful dates they can find. Which in turn leads them to their CC guys. Only problem is while meeting/dating them in order to get them to come to the reunion the girls actually fall in love with their new guy.

Only problem is that the guys some how find out about the bet and think the girls only wanted them in order to win it. Now the girls have to win them back.

Must haves.........NO evil Tess....that's it.

Mostly M/M and K/T with A/I and M/M thrown in however you want.

Max and Tess have known each other for a long time and the two were once both very BIG on the anti marrying for love bandwagon. The reasons are Tess was used as a bargaining chip by her parents in a bitter ugly divorce and Max doesn't think a man should tie himself down to one woman.

But as luck would have it both found themselves in a situation where being married would help them.....for example...one worked at a job where a big promotion was coming up but the boss was big on marriage and family and wanted to give it too someone like that....also....someone could be getting a large bit of money some how and being married would help on the tax break....whatever the reason Max and Tess found out that if they were to get 'married' (in the legal) sense...it would help them in their careers/money wise.

So the two tied the knot in a pure strategic sense.....they even share an apartment where Tess has her own bedroom and Max has his.

Everything has worked great for them in this arraignment.....that is until Liz and Kyle some how come into their life's! Now for the first time Max and Tess are feeling the emotions of love and the thoughts of marrying for real....only problem is that their actual marriage between the two of them is a BIG problem in their way!!!

Must haves
NO evil Tess at all....none zero nada!
Even though they are married their marriage is purely on paper so Max and Tess never slept together.
Isabel, Max's parents or someone in Max/Tess circle knows they only married for their jobs and has never been happy over that and lets them know it all the time.

M/L,M/M,A/I,K/T and Jim/Amy

Amy was once a some what famous actress who was known for her roles in a LOT of B style horror movies years ago. But now due to time and her getting older Amy's star has slid a bit and her career has hit a bit of a low mark. She's not worked in a long time and only making ends meet by doing a bunch of autograph signings here and there.

Amy gets a BIG break and what she thinks might be a restart to her career. She's approached by a reality tv company and their pitch is that she will go back to her small home town and without anyone knowing she's to film her whole time there. She's supposed to play the 'Hollywood star' going back to her hick small home town. The act is too film her around town without anyone knowing and showing everyone around the world what a backwaters Mayberry like hick town the places is. Amy is too have secret cameras/microphones on her and around her to tape all of her moves without anyone else knowing what's going on.

Because she wants her career back Amy jumps at the job.

Max, Isabel and Tess are part of the crew that goes with Amy to do the filming, editing and stuff. Their cover is that they're either part of Amy's entourage back in her acting days or their friends with Maria....Amy's daughter who's not at all happy with this whole idea but can't say anything due to legal stuff and her Mom's begging her not to tell anyone.

Only problem is that when Amy comes back to town she meets Jim....her old high school classmate.Turns out Jim is a BIG fan of hers still,has all her movies and is still spellbound over her. Amy and Jim start a relationship.

Plus while running around town secretly filming Max, Tess , Isabel and Maria come into contact with Liz,Kyle,Alex and MIchael. These couples also start flirting/dating.

Only problem is how will everyone react when word comes out why Amy and the others are back in town? Will they be mad they were lied to and made to look like idiots for national tv.

Must haves.
No evil Tess
Either Kyle...Liz.......Alex...MIchael...LOVE their small hometown and everything with it.And this person is NOT happy at all when word gets out that Amy and the others has been lying to them and planning on making fun of them this whole time.

M/L,M/M,A/I and K/T

Liz is in desperate need of money. Why she needs it is up too you. So against her better judgment she signs up too be on one of those reality type tv shows. She finds herself thrown into the mix where she's competing against other people on the show. One good thing about the show is her meeting and befriending fellow contestant Max.

But there's only one problem. Turns out what Liz thinks she's on a game show like tv show is a false premise. What's really going on is that everyone else on the show are actors playing parts and she,Liz, is the only true one. They are filming her being thrown into situations and playing her out too be the naive country bumpkin to show to the world during broadcast later down the road.

Max's job as an actor on the show was to be her friend and confidant. Get her to trust him and admit stuff on air that she thought was in private too a friend.

When Liz, who had fallen in love with Max, finds out whats going on......and totally embarrassed when the show airs.....flees back too her small hometown heartbroken.

Max suddenly realizes he made a total mistake and wasn't playing a part and had actually fallen in love with Liz. Now he has too track her down and find some way too get her to forgive him and them bee together.

Must haves

No evil Tess.....and her ending up with Kyle.

AU all human
Mature or adult
CC/ Past UC

Summary: An unconventional school project brings eight teens together to learn that maybe... nothing is what it appears to be.

Must haves

Alex Whitman ' The Nerd/The orphan'

Alex has the highest GPA in his class but it's not that hard when you have an eidetic memory and a extremely high IQ... but what's that when you don't have any friends? Maybe he should speak up more? be more sociable? Or most likely, He needs to find a way to get over his ridiculous crush on Isabel Evans and end the relentless teasing that Max feels like he can provoke because of it. Maybe someone like Michael Guerin can help him with that?

- Alex's family life is up to you to come up with but both his parents have to be dead.
- Alex is shy and selectively mute.
- Partner is Michael


Michael Guerin ' The Rebel/The bad boy with a heart of gold'

Michael doesn't try to be bad... It just comes naturally to him but with a trailer as a house and an abusive foster father, he really didn't have a change to be normal teen, did he? He wants to be normal. Someone a girl wouldn't mind to bring home to mother but he just doesn't think that he has it in him... but someone like Whitman does. He screams 'Boy next door' and if Michael has anything to do with it, He'll become another Whitman.

- Michael is secretly dating Maria and he wants to go public but Maria is resistant because of his bad boy image.
- Michael used to be friends with the Evans' twins until they hit high school and got popular. Now, Max and Michael are rivals.
- Alex's partner is Maria and Michael.

Max and Isabel Evans ' Mr. and Miss Popular/ Miss Distant and Mr. Lonely'

Max and Isabel are like every other twins out there... they do everything together. They lost their teeth together, they went to their first party together... Hell, they even got their first kiss on the same night! It would only make sense that they would have become popular together... and they would become the two most miserable, hated, and lonely students at West Roswell high together. Who has the cure for loneliness and self-loathing? because they sure as hell don't!

- Max is the captain to Comets and Isabel is cheer leader.
- Max is in love with Liz but won't admit it because she's weird like her sister.
- Isabel is best friends with fellow cheerleader Maria.
- Isabel despises Michael (the reason for it is up to you)
- Liz is Max's and Isabel's partner.


Maria Deluca " Isabel's second in command/ ? (Up to you)'

Maria is living the high life. Having everyone worship you is like a high that nobody who isn't popular can't ever know. She has the greatest BFF and the hottest secret boyfriend... so, what could go wrong?

- Maria feels guilty for dating Michael behind Isabel's back.
- Maria keeps her life before Roswell a secret. She was involved in illegal activities.
- Maria's partner is Alex and Michael.


Tess Parker 'The Hippie/ ? (you can decide what her alternate label is)

Tess doesn't sugarcoat things. She's a hippie child; she grew up in the culture and breathed it. She's a vegan and she dresses like something out of the 60s... and she's not ashamed of it and anyone who is... well, it ain't her problem. She likes who she is and she wouldn't change it.

- Tess' and Liz's home life is kind of a mystery.
- Tess and Kyle have a love-hate relationship.
- Tess is semi-friends with Alex, they eat lunch together and study whenever they can. She likes his aura and his sweet and good-hearted nature.
- Tess' Partner is Kyle.

Kyle Valenti ' The Sheriff's son/ ? (up to you)'

Being the sheriff's son isn't always so cool and a walk in the park, Kyle has it hard and being popular takes some law breaking notions to get ahead... but he can take it; he welcomes the challenge it brings... but what he can't take is the weirdness that is Tess Parker. The hippie child, the 'save the world' activist, and what he can't stand most of all is that she seems to see right through him.

- Kyle is a football player like Max.
- Kyle picks on Alex along with Max.
- Kyle has an estranged brother who is famous football player.
- Kyle's partner is Tess.

Liz Parker '?'

There is no real way to label Elizabeth Parker. She dances to her own beat... she isn't like her sister or her family. She's her own person and there's nobody else she wants or should be.

-Liz is a mystery even to her sister.
-Liz often stands up against Kyle and Max when they pick on Alex.
-Liz is a lot like Alex... she never says anything she doesn't mean and she doesn't talk to just anybody. She's more friends with Alex than Tess.
- Liz's partner is Isabel and Max.

In General
- Partners can be changed and go however you want them to but I like to see unconventional pairings and not so much in coupledom.
- Set in senior yr. of High school.

Max approaches a girl at a bar(not Liz)and tries to smooth talk her. For some reason, up too you why, the girl gives Max a different phone number than her own.

On the flip side Liz is getting picked on a bit for being a dull stick in the mud who never does anything wild and crazy.

As luck would have it the fake number the girl at the bar gave Max turns out to be Liz's. And in order to prove others wrong Liz decides to be wild and go out on a date with a complete stranger.

Must haves
No evil Tess (happy ending with Kyle)
Someone in the group has an unusual pet.

Liz and Maria are the best of friends ever since early childhood. They're as close to sisters as best friends can get. They are now young adults sharing an apartment together. Liz meets and starts dating Michael much to Maria's dismay. She can't stand the wild Michael and the "bad" influence he has on what was her normal responsible best friend.

Maria is always trying to break them up but in doing so is always around Michael and the two start to fall for each other.

Max is their across the hall apartment neighbor. He's madly in love with Liz but is too shy and no where near smooth to tell her/show her. Max always rushes over to fix anything or take care of anything in Liz's apartment. ...every time she ask.

Must haves

No evil Tess
