What forensics kids are like based on what events they do
Extemp: super into politics and economics. Probably spends too much time reading/watching the news. Will try to talk you into doing extemp. Do not let them.
DI: not as depressed as you might think. Actually generally pretty upbeat. Brutal. Know exactly how to make you feel bad for them.
HI: class clowns. Generally funny people. Make a lot of interesting facial expressions. Probably has a hidden dark side that they try to cover with comedy.
Poetry: Watches too many Button Poetry videos on YouTube. They’re seriously just really obsessed with poetry. Will probably try to get you to watch/read their fav poems, say no unless you want to cry. Very in touch with their emotions.
Prose: two types; the kind who really really love doing prose, and the kind that got forced into it by their coach because they’re also doing poetry. Probably likes Edgar Allen Poe too much. Often into some really dark shit. Probably writes sometimes but is super embarrassed about their writing.
Oratory: really good at proving a point. Gets A’s on all their English assignments. Will quote Gandhi or MLK on your ass. Knows too many statistics. Probably obsessed with one specific topic (aka the thing they chose to write their oration on).
Inform: you know that one kid who knows too many random facts? That’s them. Usually into technology. Kind of weird. Has one area of interest that they’re super into and know everything about.
Impromptu: good at doing things on the fly. Probably does all their homework assignments an hour before they’re due. Knows a lot about pop culture. Will do really ridiculous things in round like rap an entire song or make super weird comparisons.
Duo: do not come between duo partners, they will end you. Gods of blocking and choreography. Scarily in sync. Share many similar viewpoints. The ones who wear matching outfits should not be messed with under any circumstances.
LD: nerds. Like seriously, they’re just super fucking nerdy. Either they’re really bigoted cishets or they’re extremely queer. Probably write their cases the day before they need them, and sometimes go into rounds completely unprepared but somehow will still manage to do well.
PF: they don’t know what they’re doing. Ever.
Congress: probably overly educated on the political process. Loyal. Stand by their beliefs. Feminist as fuck. Good at convincing people. Like to be educated and will ask you questions if they know you know a lot about a topic.
