Love thinking of what could have happened to the clients! I think Claire and Suzi would have been best friends in school and both into drama (I remember quite a few books saying that they were good performers). Likewise Matthew Hobart, who would always get the role of leading man in the plays, while his brother James directs them.
Myriah and Gabbie would be the outgoing girls in school that would always get into the musicals, but their sister Laura would be the odd one out who doesn't like performing and prefers doing other things.
Laura is best friends with Lucy Newton and she gets a crush on her hot older brother Jamie
Back to the Pike kids, I imagine Byron being the nice guy (a bit like Ducky in California Diaries) in school that wears scarves and drinks hot chocolate studying in the library with a pretty girl he's been going out with for a year (v vivid image but I like it ), while Adam and Jordan are the assholes in school that are out partying all the time. I'm picturing Vanessa being very into Shakespeare and quoting it often (like Judy in that Nickelodeon Show, Doug ). I was thinking the same thing people said about Nicky that he'd be a goth that would write angsty song lyrics on his guitar and be in a band! Margo will be into fashion and be one of the stylish girls in school.
Charlotte will still be reserved, but outgoing when you get to know her. A smart girl that everyone likes. Like Nicky, she would also be in a band, writing lyrics and playing guitar (she took lessons in the series). Or she could write the scripts for the school plays and go out with James Hobart I could imagine her and Becca drifting apart somehow for a while...
Poor Andrew - he's going to be one of those very quiet, non athletic guys that gets a tough time from other guys in school, while his sister ends up the very popular but bitchy loudmouth girl (Karen will be Kristy, but more into fashion and might fall out with Hannie for a while due to her bossiness/bitchiness). David Michael - normal all rounder guy in school and Emily Michelle will be another Claudia (struggles with learning, creative, more close to her grandmother than her own mum, etc...).
I like these predictions, Liss and agree with most of them. You've inspired me to try to think up some more. Can't come up with any except Jeff Schafer as obnoxious friend of Adam and Jordan and Jackie as a goofball, Alan-Gray-like but more klutzy, stranger. Becca will become a drama queen, outgoing her stage fright, and drift away from Charlotte because she starts hanging out with a wilder group (Stacey and the Bad Girls arc). Jenny P will be a cheerleader-type fashion conscious, stuck-up pain who likes to insult the other girls. I'll try to think of some of the rest of them but I think you got all of the other main ones.
I don't see Byron as being gay... I see him as getting involved in really great relationships with girls that the other two triplets are secretly jealous of because they are too busy going to frat parties and guzzling beer to find anyone who isn't impressed by stuff like that.

I see Byron being good friends with Hailey, Charlotte and Becca.
Yeah, I agree, way too predictable. I find that BSC fans tend to be extremely stereotypical in their ideas of gays and lesbians. Like you said, Byron is always gay because he's sensitive. Also, Kristy is always a lesbian, presumably because she's a tomboy and likes sports -- even though she's got her very own sort-of boyfriend!
Yeah I know what you mean, I don't why so many in the bsc fandoms like slash so much.(sorry if that offends anyone, )and it always seems to be the same people too, which gets old very soon.
I think Nicky Pike grew up very angsty. Misunderstood, teased by the triplets his whole life, a bit of an outcast. I can see him being a loner as a teenager. And in contrast, I think Claire Pike grew up to be very well-liked, outgoing, and funny.
I can totally see Nicky growing up to be emo.

"The Baby-Sitters Club." It's sooooooooooo dibble!
I think that starrynight's prediction about Byron is spot on.
Sean Addison will probably be the type of kid that makes fake bomb threats at his high school. As an adult he'll be in prison and/or institutionalized.
Myriah will be one of those "golden girl" types that exists in every high school: popular (but not snobby), excellent grades, participates in a million extra curriculars. Gabbie will probably be her clone (or at least strive to be).
I vote for Sean Addison and Mel Tucker both becoming psycho serial killers. After reading about Claire in Claudia and the Mystery of the Museum thread, I predict she'll be in show business. Karen Brewer will be a teacher, I think. My little cousin is bossy just like her and that is what she wants to be (so she can "tell people what to do".)

I could see Claire going into acting, as well as the Perkins. I see Margo being one of those popular kids who maybe develop an eating disorder, and Nicky being one of those kids who spends all his time online roleplaying and being quite popular there, then be ingored in RL. I also see Karen being very Kristy-like that trys to start her own business,(to have it not as sucessful as the BSC) Jenny becoming very valley-girlish or a total drama queen. Jeff and Adam being on of those dumb jocks always getting into trouble despite being an good athletes. Bryon always hanging out with the girls and being more of a guy friend then a boy friend, also a bit of a teachers pet at school as well as home. Jordan being the agnsty musician and lady's man who go through girlfriends as often as he changes clothes.

I always saw Karen as turning out to be one of those Paris Hilton-wannabe girls, with tons of makeup, expensive wardrobes, lots of material things. Although Karen was supposed to be soooo intelligent, she always seemed lacking in substance to me.
