I'm toying with a fan fic idea right now and I want to get things right. I hate nothing more than seeing characters aged wrongly, so I thought you guys could help me. Vanessa would be a grade ahead of Becca, right? And the Pike triplets are a grade ahead of them?
"Being a writer takes a lot of self discipline. You've got to make yourself work. No one can do it for you"--Mallory on Strike
Vanessa was 9 and Becca was 8 and I think they were a grade apart in the books. But you could probably do whatever worked best for your plot with a few years leeway. After all, that's what the BSC does. ;D
^ Too many to keep track of. ;D Does your fanfic include Charlotte? She's the only one I have problems with, really, with inconsistencies in ages for the correct grade in the books. Sometimes she's 8 so if she skipped, she really should be in the same grade as Vanessa, not Becca (but I just write it off as when their birthdays fall, etc. so that's why I think you really have a bit of leeway. ;D) Good luck with your story. ;D
