Note: No counsellors included here yet 'cause they're not in CFUD's userinfo and I'm braindead and not thinkin' of who's what where now.
...okay, so, one detail. 'Doesn't register' will appear a lot. Mello is... Mello's a very interesting character for me to roleplay because there are people he can regularly have lengthy conversations with and yet who just 'don't register' to him. What that means, to me, is that he has a definite opinion on them, can carry on conversations, but ultimately just doesn't actually care about them. (This is because Mello is a fucknut and if they're not a threat to him on some level -- either physically or emotionally making him vulnerable and rarely does he mind the physical -- he really doesn't care, overall.) He'll talk to them quite affectionatelly but the moment he's not talking about them they sort of cease to exist in his mental/emotional universe for a while. If Mello seems to randomly drop a conversation in the middle with you, you probably don't register to him. Honestly, this is probably the best for you. XD
IN THE ORDER THEY APPEAR IN THE USERINFO!
Wednesday - Hasn't met.
Anne - Doesn't register. Thinks she's probably very nice and rules-abiding and victorian. Could probably manipulate, if he had to.
Artemis - Doesn't really register, but suspects Artemis probably should. Slightly suspicious of him. Prone to talking sarcastically to him when they talk.
Sokka - New toy! ...yeah, that's basically Sokka's status, but he recently fell out of that when Sokka actually asked Mello to not make out with Near in front of him any more. "Yay, he grew a backbone, now he's boring." ...mello's a little like a cat in a way. And Sokka was kinda fun to bat around with his eye-bulging ACKahbhttt at The Gay, but he's adjusting now and, well, what can you do.
Bill and Ted - hasn't met.
Tatsuki - Doesn't register, but probably would if they talked more. She checked to see if his underwear was among the stolen group. NIce girl, sensible.
Hitsugaya - I don't think they've actually talked.
Chizuru - Heh. Chizuru's an interesting person to Mello because she's the type of person who normally wouldn't register, but because she's important to Chisame, Mello has forced himself to register her. Thinks she's fun to chat with but ultimately no challenge/threat. His lack of interest in women may help push that point. XD Likes her.
Ishida - Oh boy, where to begin. Mello started out not liking Ishida, and then found him an interesting challenge who, frankly, reminds him of a less-psychotic, more-prideful Near. Considers himself superior to Ishida and doesn't give a flying fuck that Ishida considers HIMself superior to MELLO. But finds Ishida interesting, nonetheless. Despite himself, is sort of enjoying covering up Near's murder of Ishida, because it's a challenge. Even when they switched personalities and were fighting, Mello genuinely liked Ishida, but Ishida's pride refused to let Mello back down from the insults Ishida had made. Even though Near murdering Ishida was something Mello found hilarious and sexy at once, he still continued to like Ishida, which is what he commented was 'funny' about the situation -- because even he can acknowledge that there's something fucked up and wrong about liking someone but still being titillated by their murder. Wants to spend more time with Ishida, to figure him out and poke at his buttons.
Rukia - They really haven't talked.
Ichigo - They haven't talked much and mostly when they did, Ichigo quoted befuddling pop culture references at him. Mello knows some pop culture (a random grab-bag assortment, mostly picked up from the internet -- he may not act like it (and quite deliberately) but Mello's background gave him a WEIRD umbrella-effect sheltering) but he's more of a classical quoter so most of the time he finds Ishida a little confusing. Wary of how much Ichigo knows about Ryuk and what that could lead to, but mostly ignores him anyway.
Bob - Mostly doesn't register, but Bob backed down the one time they interacted, which means Mello essentially thinks of him as prey. Heh.
Buffy - Doesn't register. He's pretty sure she has an interesting and possibly useful story but can't really bring himself to care. Will be polite when they interact, though.
Rosette - I don't think they've met.
Nokoru - Hasn't met.
Allen Walker - Oh god. Mello is a PUPPY for Allen, though he tries not to show it too much. Allen answers a religious need in Mello that he has never had fulfilled before due to his upbringing -- faith and confidante and at the same time, someone who's not going to be all "All is right in the world la la la." Allen knows things can be crappy, but he doesn't let it get to him. Mello wants to impress Allen and wants to be his friend and sort of weakly wants to offer back role as 'someone who'll listen' to Allen but he can't bring himself to do it in any way that isn't totally lame and failing. Allen's both willing to hold Mello's hand and encourages him to manage his situation himself and makes himself very very human, and as a result, I think despite only a year of difference in age or so, Mello kind of vaguely thinks of Allen almost as a father figure at this point. XD
Bart Allen - Village idiot. Registers only because of a vague sense of 'oh lord wtf stupid thing is he going to say now'.
Beast Boy - They haven't talked.
Starfire - Haven't talked.
Kon-El - Doesn't register. They've talked, but Mello considers him officially harmless. XD
Misa - Achch;tkppttghfhb. ...that's about as much as I can say. XD Mello is very wary of Misa because she's both smart enough to play the game but doesn't play it the way the rest of them do. also, the Eyes. Also, he was dumb because his player forgot that they saw the name and not the lifespan, and not the other way around acjthppthbt. Once they've had time to interact more Mello will probably get very caustic about her, but in the meantime, she puts him into panic mode. XD
Taro - Aww, ain't he cute! The only real reason Taro registers is because of his Death Note -- and that REALLY made him register. Mello's intrigued by Taro; he's the type of personality who normally just slides right off his radar, but yet he's committed murders, and fixed them, and there's that tantalizing hint of an Emergency Release Spine. Somehow, Mello got himself bizarrely into big brother mode with Taro and considers him a friend and someone to protect (though he'd sacrifice Taro in a heartbeat if it were what was necessary) and he hopes Taro never realizes that Mello actually cares. XD
L - Man. How to explain this briefly? L means the world to Mello. Mello has spent his entire life (I'm playing a Mello who was adopted into the orphanage VERY VERY young) studying L's cases, and aiming to take over L's 'identity'. (L, by his very nature, has not previously HAD an 'identity' to Mello, just a series of quirks, and patterns, and brilliant thinking.) Since getting to know him more personally, Mello's come to realize that L is human. Moreover, Mello's come to realize that on some levels (mostly emotional), Mello can 'play' (ie, manipulate/out-maneuver) L, or could before he died at any rate. Mello was sort of smug about this, and sort of sad about this, and extremely confident as a result, and felt he was moving more towards 'first place' in his own mind. But then L died and Mello's been thrust into L's position at a time when ... well, frankly, Mello would probably turn it down if L were alive and asked him if he thought he was ready. Mello KNOWS he has more to learn, and he's extremely stressed and unhappy with being L, and he misses L for all that he discovered L was a retard with emotions, because he did, actually, love the L he was getting to meet. It wasn't a pure love, or a true love, but it was as close to love as Mello's capable of coming. He's disappointed with what he's seen of SHinigamiL so far; it's not 'L' as he knew him, and dealing with him feels like the usual manipulative work, shinigami or not.
Near - Mello did start out genuinely hating Near ... and to some extent, that's not entirely gone. But the hate came from, well, years and years of feeling overlooked and underestimated and mocked. If he just disliked Near, he'd have avoided him. As things are, what he really wanted was to be noticed, and wanted ,and respected -- it was more resentment/jealousy than 'hate'. And, well, since being forced to work with Near in camp, he GOT that, and he found all the areas where Near was weak, and, well, tries to cover for them. The Near who has acknowledged his abilities and skills and, um, physical sensuality IS someone Mello loves with a passionate obsession, because it's a Near who's given him what he's desperately craved all those years and, moreover, did so in a way that made Near ... not dependant on Mello but willingly vulnerable to him. Near's shown his throat and Mello can relax and enjoy it, to some extent. Moreover, he (almost) feels that Near views him as an equal now, which means he can work on feeling like an equal himself. That they've taken their rivalry/competition/acknowledgement over into a sexual edge isn't surprising considering the closed quarters, puberty, etc. (And Mello sneakily suspects there might have been something in the water as well, but that's his personal theory. XD) He's happy with it, and although he doesn't think Near is ...attractive, Near has a brilliant mind and that turns Mello on like nothing else except maybe a gun. Also, the shooting and the killing people thing, Mello likes that about him. XD He's finding out Near's a lot more like himself than he'd previously known, and he likes that too. That said, the 'hate' isn't entirely gone -- if and when Near mocks him (especially in that ever-so-patient-way) Mello gets angry and snappish and hateful, because their old patterns of behaviour really aren't that old. He still thinks Near deserves to be L and he doesn't, but he's almost embarrassignly grateful that Near thinks he's useful. Or thought, at any rate. The way Near's treating him now that he's 'exposed' himself to Misa is making him feel strange -- touched, yet uncomfortable, yet pleased, yet guilty -- because he knows he 'doesn't deserve' to be L, but Near's treating him with a sort of gentle resignation and helpfulness and Mello appreciates it but doesn't know how to appreciate it properly. What it all comes down to is that, love or hate, aggression or desire, Mello considers Near his. Near is HIS to love and fuck and want if he wants to, and Near is HIS to hate and fight and fuck over and strive against. He feels incredibly sorry for Raito that L died at someone else's hands (though he'd rather L hadn't died at all) because L and Raito had that sort of relationshp, and he doesn't want to die at anyone's hands but Near's, and doesn't want Near to die at anyone' shands but his own. They're sort of fucked up. Basically. In a nutshell.
Raito - Raito is incredibly frustrating to Mello; not because he's a Kira but because he's a Kira and doesn't acknowledge them at all. But then, at this point, although Mello is very very wary of Raito (to an extent; he knows that since he knows Raito's identity as Kira and will have official claim to title of L when/if they get back, he's dead meat if Raito gets another Death Note -- at least, if he gets one and they get out of camp, since he suspects Raito would probably not kill him in camp. At the same time, knowing this, there's no reason to be scared) he's also sarcastic and cutting. On some level, Mello doesn't respect Raito, and he's not even sure why. Possibly BECAUSE he thinks Raito underestimates him (although Mello should know better to assume that, even then. Heh.). He does feel some pity for Raito, as said in Near's section -- Raito lost the person who was his opposite/rival/mirror to someone else's hands, and Mello feels incredible sympathy and pity for that. Possibly because he himself is fucked up and assumes most other people (at least, the ones who 'register'!) are too. ...and not that Raito isn't, but. XD.
Conan - They don't talk.
Kaito - Doesn't really register; when he does, he's mostly an irritant. Which is funny because under normal circumstances they'd probably get along, but one of the first things he heard about was Kaito hitting on Near and Mello got vaguely rar, even when it was back when he didn't like Near. For different reasons. XD
Ken - Doesn't register. Was 'that guy who was also there when Mello helped rescue Taro'. XD
Daisuke - They haven't met.
Susan - Not really registering yet because they haven't talked much, but he's vaguely wary of her. She knows too much.
Gan Ning - They haven't talked.
Ying - He started out not liking her much because she was kinda a bitch to him every time they talked. Then she started hanging around with Raito and he felt vaguely sorry for her in an irritating, superior way. Then she got a Death Note and he went OH CRAP and decided to get on her good side and become good friends and OH CRAP.
Jiang Wei - They haven't talked.
Lu Xun - Doesn't register. Is vaguely disappointed that the first Lu Xun's death didn't give him more data on the Director.
Egala - They haven't met.
Excel - Oh god, she's an idiot, but her enthusiasm, if harnessed, may be useful.
Ropponmatsu II - Lasers? Also, Excel said they could use her as monitoring equipment.
Erk - They haven't talked.
Saki - Haven't talked.
Tohru - Doesn't register beyond a vague 'she once promised to give me chocolate.'.
Hiro - Haven't met.
Kyo - Doesn't register.
Yuki - Doesn't register.
Uotani Arisa - Doesn't register beyond 'wtf, you're trying to take a lot of liberties with me there'.
Al Elric - Doesn't register. Sort of useful, probably. Pimpcane whut?
Ed Elric - Doesn't really register. Knows Ed's smart. Still happy about Ed's help with the coffin and shovels.
Russell - Doesn't register.
Sousuke - Hasn't met.
Katou - Doesn't register.
Kurouno - Hasn't met.
Nishi - ...Mello never really cared about Nishi much personally before killing him; what he did know was Nishi's effects on people Mello knew and was slowly coming to care about. Is a little more curious/intrigued now that he died and people actually cared. Relieved he's back.
Ginji - Doesn't register. Nice guy.
Ban - Ban frustrates Mello HORRIBLY. On the one hand, Mello knows Ban's both incredibly strong and incredibly smart and, frankly, Ban sets off all his 'threat' vibes. That said, Ban helped him out when he was alone and lonely and Mello really cares about that. But his help with Near in the shooting situation would have been fine except, well, Ban has been treating them like they OWE him for it. And, well, they do -- and Mello at least would pay his debts if it weren't asked of him. Because it WAS being explicitly stated, he resents Ban bitterly for having butted in despite the fact they'd both be dead and/or miserable if he hadn't. XD Finds Ban fun to talk with, except that Ban insists he respects Mello but at the same time doesn't seem (to Mello) to TREAT him with respect. This would normally put Ban way up there for Mello, but since Ginji showed up, Mello's slowly been pushing Ban off his radar onto his 'doesn't register' scale.
Athrun - New toy status! Actually ASKED for Mello to be sarcastic at him! It's a non-friendship made in heaven! Honestly, Mello secretly enjoys giving advice, and he hopes to interact with Athrun more.
Auel - Doesn't register EXCEPT AS SOMEONE WHO TRIED TO HUFF HIM ACKTHUBBPT.
Cagalli - Hasn't met.
Heine - Mello likes Heine, but in a vague, only-registers-because-of-Ishida way. Would like to spend more time with Heine, partly because of Heine himself, partly because of the tea, partly because he considers Heine one of his 'victories' (due to having convinced Rey not to kill him) and partly because it'd get to Ishida.
Kira - He's embarrassed about the initial Kira/Kira mixup. Also, he thinks this Kira is extraordinarily dumb, but is slightly wary of him anyway.
Lacus - Hasn't talked to her much. Doesn't really register.
Meer - Originally, Meer had new toy status. And then she began to show hints of having a brain, though it invariably vanished behind fluff and boobs when he looked more closely. Is getting to the point where he'll cave and call her Miss 'Clyne', but only if he includes the scare quotes.
Nicol - hasn't met.
Rey - Doesn't register. He thinks Rey's easily manipulated.
Shinn - Doesn't really register, but is vaguely jealous that Ban thinks Shinn's crazier than he is.
Yzak - Doesn't register, considers him an egotistical bitch. (Hahaha whut.)
Wufei - Doesn't register.
Dorothy - Comments in the survey made him want to make her register her, but she hasn't posted and interest is fading.
Heero - Pants whut? Hasn't met.
Colin - Usually doesn't register. When he's there in person, his usual thought is something like "Oh my god shut up."
Draco - Hasn't met.
Fred - Doesn't register.
Zim - Doesn't register.
Ron - Doesn't register.
Murata - Doesn't register.
Wolfram - Doesn't usually register; has a vague suspicion Wolfram might be laughing at him, and resents that.
Yuuri - Annoyed him about Near before he hooked up with Near. Remembers that about Yuuri. Remembers absolutely nothing else.
Tetra - Doesn't register.
Evangeline - Vampire whut? Hasn't met.
Chisame - Heh. They talked once, and Mello found out that in a lot of ways -- not all -- he and CHisame were very similar. And then, well, he found himself sympathetic towards her, and interested ,and they talked more, and pretty much, Mello considers it strange. She's normally the type who wouldn't register to him, not being a) insane, or b) genius-brilliant, but she has, and strangest of all, he really respects her, to the point he thinks she'd make a good temporary Watari (L's water boy, basically). She's not operating on his and Near's level, but she knows what she's capable of and damn good at it. Her insecurities ... he considers them kinda cute, actually. He knows she's hot for his body and while he doesn't return it, he nevertheless teases her a little sometimes because, well, um, it makes him feel good about himself to be wanted. XD In his own fucked up way, he genuinely does love her -- not so much sexually (okay, not at all sexually, though he totally wouldn't care if she wanted to watch) but he really does think of her almost like a little sister (despite being the same age) to the point of half-heartedly threatening to try to beat up Ban for his suggestion she kiss Ginji. He'll go out of his way to protect her. Also, she's really really fun to talk with.
Axl - Doesn't register.
Tetora - Hasn't met.

Sasuke - Doesn't register. One hell of a birthday party.
Naruto - Doesn't register.
Kabuto - Vaguely wary of.
Ino - Hasn't met.
Evil King Stan - NEW TOY STATUS! Easy and fun to manipulate. XD
Ari - Mello's feelings about Ari are troubled. On the one hand, he doesn't really think he cares about Ari personally, but Ari being upset bothers Taro. On the other hand, he feels weirdly responsible to Ari and doesn't like seeing him upset. Mello can't seem to figure out why, and that bugs him.
Chopper - Hasn't met.
Usopp - Doesn't register.
Sunako - Hasn't met.
Ash - Doesn't register. Must be the only person in camp this is true for. XD
Brock - Doesn't register.
James - Hasn't met.
Inui - Iffy on. Started out liking him; has lost respect due to his inability to handle the changing environment.
Mizuki - Doesn't register.
Niou - Doesn't register except as an irritant.
Kuno - Doesn't register.
Ryouga - Doesn't like. Also doesn't like that RYouga knows so much about him by mere dint of having touched a crystal.
Anthy - Wary of. Curious about, but on some level, while he wants to poke at her and see how she works, he doesn't like that she got Near's attention. Is pleased they sort of won her togther, though.
Molly - Doesn't register.
Michiru - Hasn't met.
Haruka - Exchanged a few words with. Doesn't register, but wonders why Near introduced them and was telling her so much.
Ami - Hasn't met.
Goku - Hasn't met.
Cougar - Hasn't met.
Haine - Doesn't register.
Heather - Suspects she knows a lot more about what's going on in camp, somehwat dislikes her, otherwise doesn't register.
Soushi - Was briefly in new toy status. Otherwise, doesn't register.
Tsubaki - Doesn't register.
Anakin - Was useful, is prone to insanity, Mello is vaguely but not actively interested in.
Matsuri - Doesn't register.
Michelangelo - Doesn't register, kinda loud.
Michael - Hasn't met, I don't think.
Arhu - Doesn't register, beyond a vague annoyance that, like all cats, it was there sometimes, but never around when needed.
Hokuto - Hasn't talked much.
Momoko - Was fun to go magical girl-ing with. Caused his evil cloneness, which he doesn't blame her for. Mostly doesn't register.
Tot - Mostly doesn't register; some vague interest in her skills and hints she's not what she seems.
Omi - Doesn't much register. Thinks Omi isn't what he seems, but hasn't found any use for that yet.
Cal - First liked himb ecause Cal flattered him. Then disliked him because of the using-L's-body-to-try-to-get-to-him-thin
Watanuki - Hasn't met.
Azuma Kazuma - Hasn't met.
Yuusuke - Curious about. At first didn't register, as they were very different types of detectives. But Yuusuke's behaviour when Shinigami L started showing up made Mello interested in him. Wants to get to know Yuusuke a little better to find out how to treat him, basically.
Will update as relations change and so on. XD
