I believe requesting (Or public thread requesting) is against the ToS. So you might wanna look for a private/outside of this site way of finding a person to do so.

Average height isn't as much in Japan, and if they're of entirely (or primarily, in Yuno's case) Japanese blood, these heights are almost freakish. As a point of comparison, my character, at 5'10", would be taller than basically everyone at the school (that said, 5'10" is my actual height and I attend a school with a predominant asian population, and I do stand significantly taller than just about everyone). Unless these people have foreign blood or you enjoy them being on the distant end of the bell curve, you might want to tone it down so that they're large by Japanese standards, not Western ones.
Makes me think maybe I should make a character with Gigantism, if someone hasn't already done that.

I suppose one of us should do the specs for Shouko, now that shes an unofficial student at Yamaku. http://ks.renai.us/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=8335 :)

Hmm, you're right. I should give that a shot, since after that last conversation I began working on a fanfic involving that scene.

Maybe I'll incorporate my gigantism-afflicted character into that, too? :P

I'm considering changing Emma's name on the grounds that her personality has similarities to Emi's. The least I could do is give her a different-sounding name.

But the thing is, it just seems like such an apt name for the character's emotional state and appearance. Does that make sense? As she exists, clear as day, in my head, "Emma" just seems like the correct name.

What do you guys think?

Sometimes a name is just a name.

Try to remember that before anyone attached significance to any name, they were just what people were called. They don't need to fit the character, only make sense with their background--it should be a name their parents would have dubbed them.

If you're afraid of people confusing Emma with Emi, try something different.
