Sam and Andrea

Some characters I've been working on for a very very long time. This is the first part of a much much longer and involved story. Perhaps I'll actually attempt to write it but it keeps changing and evolving so it's hard to pin down. Here's the two main characters:

Sam and Andrea are friends. They are very good friends. They are both in Jr. high school and want to be rock stars someday. Andrea plays guitar and piano and violin. Sam sings and plays a bit of guitar and harmonica but says that she'll never be as good as Andrea on guitar and that is alright with her.
Sam has dark hair that she hates and thinks she is fat, even though Andrea keeps telling her that she is not.
Andrea is skinny and blonde and none of the boys look at her because she has no boobs. This makes her sad but Sam tells her that any guy that would like her just for that isn't worth her time anyways.
Sam likes Bob Dylan but Andrea likes John Lennon better. They both like to sit and listen to records for hours and talk and play guitar and sing songs. Someday they will start a band and have lots of fans and maybe even get on TV. They don't care about being famous though, they just want to sing and play and have people listen to them sing and play.
Sam's dad was a musician who ran away when she was very young. Her mother is fat and sits on the couch all day watching TV.
Andrea never had a dad but her mom is an abusive old witch who forced her to learn violin and piano. She was home schooled till she hit Jr. High. Sam is her only friend as being sheltered from the outside world all her life has made her incredibly shy and quiet.
Together they struggle through the day to day drudgery of high school life, knowing that someday they will escape the crap sack little town they live in.
Someday....

A soap-opera premise?

More like a rock and roll love story.
This is my nice type story, no monsters or bloody violent deaths. Not too many anyways....

Lol, alright. I'll put up another piece of Choose Your Own Fate tonight. Let me mull on the story a bit....

No rush. Make this here love story last as long as you want. It sounds pretty good.

Ooh, rock and roll love story! This is bound to be good. Can there at least be one violent part in this tale?

I can't help it: I'm in junior high, dammit!
