Bass City, Arciel
Bass City, top floor in her parents studio
Tell us a little about yourself. How would you describe yourself?
Arietta seems to stare down the interviewer for a few seconds, a sparkle dazzling in her gaze ‘You don’t know- well, if you insist~” She flips some hair behind her shoulder and adjusts how she sits, leaning towards the interviewer. “Wellllll, I love music- if that wasn’t obvious. I’m actually in a pop-punk band, maybe you’ve heard of them? PNG? Pixie Nightmare Girls?” The interviewer shakes their head and Arietta lets out a sigh, a soft 'tsk' leaving her lips, “Well- you will! Don’t you worry! See, right- I’m actually their choreographer! It’s because i’m really into dancing, see i’ve been doing it since highschool, and before then I did Gymnastics for… a few years?”
The Interviewer seems to be madly scribbling down what she says as she goes on, seemingly in her own world. “Yeah- yeah a few years. I also run my own blog, you should totally check it out, Heart-Beat-dance-” The interviewer smiles at her, a rough upper quirk of their lips and Arietta giggles. “Oh my arceus, you will? great!”
The interviewer shifts, “You forgot to answer the other bit, how you’d describe yourself?” Arietta shifts again, a rough laugh leaving her lips as she averts her gaze. Her hand moves up and she swipes a small strand of hair behind her ear. “Oh... How i’d describe myself?” She furrows her brow, and her chipper tone falters for a second. “Sorry I forgot to answer that, didn’t i? I’m like...super friendly, I looooove giving to others, it’s what idols do!” She nods to herself then leans slightly forward in her seat, bringing her eyes back to the interviewer. “I guess you could say i’m… sweet! Like a lollipop~”
Why are you interested in the class you've chosen?
“In coordination?” Arietta shrugs half-heartedly, moving to cross one leg over the other. “Well… I am performing- y'know… with a group, so i kinda just went for the closest thing possible! My other friends did too, so like… it was the obvious choice- and I just love working with pokemon!”
Why are you interested in training in Arciel? Why not another region?
Arietta blinks for a few seconds, as if the obvious answer was right in front of them. “I mean, I grew up here- this is my home, i'm surrounded with my friends and the people I love!” She lets out a laugh, “I wouldn’t want to start my idol journey anywhere else.”
What do you consider your best attributes? They can be physical, mental, social, or anything else.
Arietta’s eyes widen for a second and her hand moved to rest under her chin, “Aren’t you cute, interviewer? My best attributes?” She leans back and pushes her hands into her lap, her gaze wondering around as she shifts like a lovesick puppy “Well… i’ve been told like, many things by many people, like I once had a guy say my eyelashes were super super delicate, or like my clothes were hella cute, sometimes its about how I look or even how I present myself- people are super flirty or obsessive when they like you, y’know…?”
Her words trail off and she bits her lips, her hands relaxing in her lap finally, her gaze travels back to the interviewer. “But- obviously, because i’m a dancer, I can say honestly my dance moves and my idol charm are my best features- it’s how i’m known! Buuut, i’m also really good with people~ and i’m a great flirter, want me to demonstrate-”
The interviewer shakes their head and Arietta giggles, moving back and fiddling with her hair again.
What do you consider your worst attributes? Be honest, now!
“Uh- worst attributes? This wasn’t in the brief you gave me before this whole question thing started-” The interviews eyebrow quirks up and Arietta lets out a sigh- guess this wasn’t like a usual interview then. “Okay- well, like, maybe i’m just… super picky with music?” The interviewer doesn’t look impressed, and Arietta squirms under their gaze, “Y-Yeah… and… uh… maybe I can’t keep a partner- but no no no don’t worry! I’m working on changing that!”
(Arietta has many bad, bad attributes. Please don’t listen to her. She is incredibly defensive and terrified of getting hurt, to the point she’d throw others under the bus to keep herself afloat. She convinces herself that it’s helping them rather than hurting them, which is probably the worst thing at all- she has no idea the damage she can do to others.)
What was your childhood like? How was school?
“...My...C-Childhood-” Arietta shifts, and begins fidgiting. She looks even more uncomfortable than she did before. It seems this interviewer seems to be attempting to get under her skin! Well, she wasn’t gonna let them! “Uhm… Look, my parents don’t care much about me, so I went from family member to family member until my aunt basically forced me back to my parents- if you wanna know all the details you can totally refer to my blog- but still, I dated… a lot… uh…”
Her hands tighten and gaze lowers, she doesn’t seem to want to go in to a lot of detail, especially not to somebody who could easily go to the press. “...and it didn’t end up good at all! I have seven evil exes- yeah, you heard me right, seven. Each of them were really bad in some way- but we don’t dwell on that! I’m going up, and up, and up!” The interviewer doesn’t look certain of what she says, and Arietta shakes her head a few times, feeling the need to further push the point.
“-me and my girlfriends- not like that- have known each other for years! (like since like elementary), and we’re really close- you might know them from the idol group too! They’ve been with me through everything, I really love them… yeah.” The interviewer seems to notice her change in demeanor and swoops in with a further question.
How is your relationship with your family?
Arietta doesn’t raise her head, moving her hands up to her chest and clutching them tightly, as if to comfort herself. “If i’m going to be frank with you, me and my parents aren’t very close- you might actually know my mum! She’s renowned around the region- Allegra Ostinato? Yeah- the music therapist. I was unexpected, and as soon as she had me she ditched me to give to the nearest fu-”
She coughs, eyes going wide and shaking her head a few times, a good cover up, Ari! “To the nearest d-damn aunt she could get her hands on before going on tour for a few years. I love my aunts, and uncles, and grandparents, but my mum- and my dad for that matter I just… I don’t understand?”
Her voice seems to move to a whisper as she shakes, her gaze moving to meet up with the Interviewers- and her eyes glisten with unshed tears. “...My dad always supports mum- like- always. He went with her on tour, he takes her side over everything- i’m sick of it. Mum owns like, some music office thing now, where people can visit, rent out the downstairs studio, she teaches music… I dunno… i still live on the floor above them but- yeah- me and my parents don’t get along too well- though don’t go telling everybody, that can’t really good for my career...”
What do you like to do for fun?
The change of tone for questions seems to surprise her, and Arietta blinks rapidly to clear her eyes. She attempts a smile, though at this point it seems incredibly forced. “Dance! Dancing is my way of relieving all sorts of things, like wasted energy- it’s how I relieve stress, and just kinda deal with a lot of my problems I guess? I also love shopping, and updating my blog- making choreography vids for my followers is great too! Going out to dance clubs… singing, teaching pokemon to dance, all is fair game!”
Tilting her head, her smile shifts to something slightly more coy. “Oh, and I do enjoy a bit of a cheeky flirt every now and again…”
What are your feelings on romance?
Arietta’s grin widens, and she lets out a soft giggle, her hands move to twirl her hair around her finger as she watches the interviewer “You’re asking me? Really? Well- I kinda just… love… love! I’ve been with seven people so far- oh- but i’ve fallen in love with so many more! Though i’m… a little wary right now, it can’t hurt to throw myself out there! I know idols aren’t like, typically ‘supposed’ to date but i’m all here for breaking stereotypes~ Not even seven evil exes who literally left me sobbing in the dirt and would do it again in a heartbeat can tear me down… a...ha.” She averts her gaze and shifts in her seat, “Can you like, give me another question- please?”
(She craves feeling validated by others and is incredibly affectionate. Though she can very easily get scared or turn away when something, even something small, goes haywire and blow things straight out of proportion. Those who don’t know Arietta might think that to her, loves a game. But really she just craves love and adoration.
And if she has to go through an army to get it? She’ll put on her camo and storm right in. Also due to her past she’s terrified of settling down properly. And very fluttery about things.)
What are your goals for the future? Short-term and long-term.
Arietta wrings her arms infront of her, mimicking a thoughtful expression. “Isn't it obvious?" She unwrings her hands and raises her palms upwards. "I wanna become big with PNG! We’re gonna go on world tours, cell out halls and create stellar shows with our pokemon!"
She rings her fingers inwards and hums for a moment. "I’d also for now love to improve more with how I teach choreography, and after I settle down from doing my idol stuff i’d just love to start up my own dance studio with a cutie and set the world ablaze, y’know?”
If you could be a Pokemon, what species or typing would you choose and why?
The brunette pauses, seemingly deep in thought before moving her hands to fluff up her hair. “Ooooh, good one! There’s just like… so many to chose from~ You tell me, though- what pokemon do you see me as? I’m small soooo i’m no Gardevoir- oh!" Her mouth pops open as she rambles on, a surprised gasp leaving her lips. Her hands excitedly gesture outwards and she lets out a laugh. "Oh! I’d totally be an Oricorio! They can change their forms and love to dance- you know I dye my hair and wear contacts often right- it’s like a part of my image-” the interviewer cuts her off with the next question.
What do Pokemon mean to you?
Arietta pouts at being cut off however shrugs her shoulders back and sits taller, as if this was a proper show interview, "Welll- pokemon mean the world to me, obviously- like, they're so cute, and friendly, they're literally our world." She tilts her head, "They're brilliant at making things shimmer and sparkle too, and they put up with a hell of a lot, especially in the show world- i love them."
She brings a hand to her cheek and lets out a soft sigh, as if caught in a daze, "...Especially my Aumia, you might get a glimpse of our new routine in our new up and coming show!"
Anything else you'd like to tell us about before you go?
Arietta claps her hands together, an eager expression on her face, "We have a big Christmas concert coming up- oh, and i'm doing a few solo things up in a bar in bass city, so if you have the time please come support me and the group!" She smiles brightly at the interviewer, before leaning closer, "...And if you want free entry... come talk to me after~"
5'1" / 154cm
Slim yet muscular.
Naturally Honey brown, however she dyes it often.
Naturally golden yellow, however she wears contacts often
Slim and slightly muscular, Arietta has the appearance you'd expect of a dancer. She has a few freckles here and there spotting her skin, however due to her career she constantly is wearing makeup to cover up her 'imperfections', which includes cat-eye, highlighter and peachy lipstick- she's also constantly wearing the current trends, though when she likes somebody she changes up her style to match their own.
When Arietta likes and wishes to impress somebody she'll often dye her hair and wear contacts that match their favourite colour or to a colour that she thinks they'll like. Her hair from years of dying is slightly frayed and damaged, however she visits a hair stylist daily in order to attempt to keep it healthy.
A soft honey gold colour that constantly pulses and stretches tendrils outwards, often along to whatever beat in able to be heard (the gentle hum of a breeze, the pumping of bass), the tendrils mimic that of dancing. Every beat reveals small speckles which come and go with how hard the colour thumps, often revealing speckles of deep blue and soft grey.
Skills, Abilities, & Notoriety
0 - Neutral
> Arietta's need for love stems from her lack of having parental comfort growing up, she craves comfort and support from those around her- however she's so scared of that comfort and support turning around and hurting her that if anything goes awry she lashes out. Spreading rumours and bullshit, she won't hesitate to do whats needed to make sure she doesn't get hurt- she doesn't want to get hurt again. Some of her rumours grew so bad that her exes had to drop out of school, however she's oblivious to a lot of the harm she does- and for some cases has convinced herself that the rumours actually help her exes.
> Despite that, she's generally a nice girl who just really, really needs to learn right from wrong and understand that not everybody is out to hurt her- and that despite what happened when she was younger her parents truly love and care for her. She can't make up for what she's done, but recognizing it and even giving an apology could be a place to start- but she's too stubburn, and too dramatic about her issues to accept this.
> If the idol group doesn't go ahead, Arietta will be instead attempting to go for a solo career and it'll play off like the group just broke off.
