How We See the Suspects

Post by Adam106 » Sun Nov 29, 2009 3:44 pm

Just a neat little idea inwhich we use a bio-template I made to announce how you imagine the suspects to be.

Its:

Title:
First Name:
Surname:
Age:
Country:
Build:
Hair Colour:
Eye Colour:
Occupation:
Sexual Orientation:
Marital Status:

I've always been interested to see how other people see the suspects. If you feel like adding extra information or even a full blown-out bio, please feel free. :)

My only problem with those is: What are the chances that when you take those 11 people, 4 of them will be gay? I like having some diversity in Clue, I just think it's an unreasonable amount. I wouldn't be surprised if there were one or maybe two, but 4 just seems a lot. Just my opinion...

At first, I was thinking the same thing... but if Mr. Boddy is gay (bisexual), it's not unlikely that his house guests would be too.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Also, you there are suspects who are homosexual, but not admitting it.


(P.S. Doesn't it seem like the sexual orientation option is the only one that will spark any real discussion? It makes the others seem redundant.)

Isn't the whole point of this thread about how WE see the characters though? I mean technically I could say that the entire cast is gay if that's the way I wanted to play it lol.

So what it really boils down to is not why there are *gasp* so many gays. But rather how Mr. Boddy knows them. If he's blackmailing random strangers, their sexuality could be part of how he knows them (possibly even the reason behind the blackmail/murder etc.?).

As for 4/11 being gay... it just kind of depends on the circles you run in I guess. If Mr. Boddy were some hot 30-something bisexual guy that liked to throw his influence and sexuality all over the place to get what (and whom) he wanted, then it would be likely he'd invite/have dirt on some of his sexually 'taboo' friends too.

Not to mention, imagine the sort of drama that would unfold after the dead Boddy (ha!) shows up that not only does Miss Scarlett claim to have been having an affair with Mr. Boddy, but Prof. Plum professes his love for the former man of the house too?!

Anyway, I think it'd be fun to add to the list of characteristics, by adding a 'Relationship with Mr. Boddy' heading as well. I mean we know the basics about them, but how do they know Mr. B?

It'd be Death at a Funeral. LOL Try to rent the original English Frank Oz film before anyone goes to see the new one with Chris Rock.

Of all the males, I always saw Plum as the straightest.

It's Mustard who I envision homosexual, possibly attracted to rugged cowboys.

If I had to make one gay, it might be Rev. Green or Plum, but not Mustard. I consider him to be very straight.

But then again, we're talking about fictional (sigh) characters. So it really doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter how many gays you have in your group of suspects. It's just YOUR opinion and YOUR personal preference in terms of seeing the characters. There are no right or wrong answers here.
