"Super Sonic" Jill Redmond
"WAKE UP! WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP! IT’S THE ONE AND ONLY, HOT AND SPICY, SUPER DELUXE COMBO, THE RECORD-BREAKING AND THE RECORD MAKING, SUPERSONIC DJ UP EARLY IN THE MORNING! IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS, SO WIPE THE CRUST FROM YOUR EYES AND THE SLOB FROM YOUR MOUTH, IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP!”
In Sister Circle, that's about how Ms. Jill talks, all CAPS! Meaning she screams and even her normal voice is very loud. Hence the name SUPER SONIC, because of her big voice and sometimes hyperactive energy level. Jill is a junior and the youngest of the sorority sisters. She does a morning campus radio show and wakes everyone up daily with her big voice. She's a media broadcast major. She also serves as the Dean of Pledges.
I selected Danielle (now simply Dani) from ANTM. Everything about her is Jill. Tall, skinny, pretty but not overly so. The guys fall all over her, too bad she's way too picky with the guys she wants. And this year, she is on a mission to find "Mr. Right."
"LISTEN UP ERR’BODY, LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE SOMETHING, SOMETHING. SUPER SONIC IS ON A MISSION! WHERE ARE ALL THE GOOD MEN AT? YA HEARD ME, WHERE THEY AT? WHAT A SISTA GOTTA DO TO GET THE WHOLE NINE? COOK FOR ME, CLEAN MY CAR FOR ME, TAKE A SISTA SHOPPING, PAY DA BILLS, PAINT MY TOES…SUCK MY TOES, MAKE A GIRL SCREAM KIND OF MAN. YA HEAR ME! WHERE YA AT PLAYA, CALL ME!”
So every day after her show, many of her "groupies" await her and she turns them all down. The one she is interested in attends a nearby college but he doesn't notice her much. Till she gets him to notice her.
But then, there is also her friend Ivan, who she has no interest in, but he reveals his feelings to her:
“Unh-unh, man, stop playing,” Jill said, pushing him away. “You're my boy, you ain’t supposed to be pushing up on me like that.”
“Why won’t you take me serious?”
“Cause you…you my boy.”
“It’s because I’m white,” he said.
She has several very funny dating experiences. She is naive, wants things her way and acts like a big baby a lot of time. She needs a bit more fleshing out, but definitely a fun character to write.
