#8: Ten years old. Rode in Mrs. Pike's car to Sea City with Mary Anne, Vanessa, Adam, and Jordan. Complimented one of Vanessa's poems. First thing he wanted to do was go to Ice Cream Palace. Favorite ice cream is big cherry vanilla. Had money when they went to the candy store, but none of his other siblings did -- only bought for himself. Knows how to swim, but is afraid to go in deep water because he says you never know when it could just drop. Finally agrees to go in water up to his knees. Adam and Jordan teased him about it at first, but were nice about it when he finally went in the water. Wanted to eat a double Crazy Burger 'with the works.' Refused to go in the haunted house with Adam and Jordan, which made them mad. Rode the ferris wheel twice. Doesn't like Smithtown, but likes miniature golf.

#71: Played touch football.

#72: Went to the park without asking with Jordan and Adam. It started raining once they were there. Stayed in the tool shed for awhile --planning on waiting out the storm -- but eventually decided to run for it because it didn't seem like it was ending any time soon. Nicky was worried about them. Triplets have a "science club" in which they basically do all sorts of experiments on their hamster, Frodo.

#73: Formed a kickball team with Jordan and Adam. The triplets weren't good at settling arguments between their team members, so everyone eventually stopped coming. Got advice from Mal on how to run it better, and it was a success.

#75: Interrupted the play to insult his sisters.

#90: Priced things with Jordan and Vanessa. Accidentally broke an antique vase and panicked.

#91: Was told he had to clean his room before he played any games (along with Jordan and Adam). Protested. In way of encouraging the triplets to clean their room, Sam Thomas taped a dollar bill to a paper turkey and then taped the turkey on the broom. He told the triplets they'd find it when their room was done.

#92: Byron laughed so hard that he fell out of his chair when Adam told Claire that Pow was frozen solid. Spied on his sisters. Argued with Adam over whether they should get a Ferrari or a Porsche. Wanted the television crew to leave so that they could spend Christmas as a family.

#94: Made a snow fort and stole food to put in it.

#96: Played baseball at the park. Also participated in the Cassandra Clue play.

#98: Jeff calls the triplets "JAB." Joined the BSC as a BIT (babysitter-in-training). Almost bailed on a job because he had a Little League game on the same day, but ended up coming back. Played 'vegetable house' with Claire and Margo. Decided he didn't want to be in the BSC anymore because he had better things to do, like Rollerblading. Plays on Little League. Uniforms are red and white, and the team is called "the Rockets."

#99: Stuck a long tail to the back of Nicky's pants. Was in charge of the beanbag toss.

#115: Byron wants to read Dawn his English report, but Adam tells him he'll put her to sleep.

#116: Was in the play.

#121: Built a tower out of cards, but then it fell down. Moped around the house. Ended up building a 'beach' outside with the rest of th Pike kids. Had a sleepover. Triplets climbed up a large tree with a garbage bag of water balloons and soaked everyone. Mrs. Pike came out and called for them after Adam accidentally sprayed the water hose in his parents' bedroom. They hung their heads, thinking they were in trouble, and walked over to her. She soaked them all with a water gun, and then the fight continued.

#122: He and Adam had a soccer game (Jordan was sick).

#125: Refused to even speak to Mallory because he and the other triplets said they were practicing for when she was at Riverbend. Threw a football around while walking home from school. Ate chocolate chip cookies.

#126: Let Mallory hug him before she left. Refused to help Adam and Jordan take apart the bunk beds. Did not participate in the infamous Pike family room wars; while his siblings were upstairs "protesting," he read a book in the rec room.

“What’s up?” [Abby] asked him when she found him reading quietly in the rec room. “Don’t you have any opinion about this room issue?”

He shook his head. “Not really,” he answered. “The whole thing is dumb. Jordan and Adam are acting like babies. Which is kind of funny, since they’re always telling Nicky what a baby he is. Which he isn’t, really.”

Abby nodded, thoughtfully.

“So you’re staying out of the Room Wars?” she asked.

He nodded. “However it works out is fine with me. I just want some peace and quiet.”


Agreed to share a room with Nicky instead of with Adam and Jordan.

#130: The triplets all climbed on each other's backs for the video Alan was filming. They were doing fine until Nicky joined in, then they almost ran into a lamp. The triplets played Monopoly in the rec room.

#131: Wants a new airplane model, so tries to save up money. Unlike Adam and Jordan, fires don't excite him – actually, he's scared of them. Wanted the BSC to pay him, A, and J to not ruin their reputation. Is the logical triplet.

SUMMER BEFORE
Unfortunately, this section is under construction. I don't have my book with me right now, but I should be able to finish it in the near future!



MINI BOOKS
Basically, their role is the same in each of the mini-books (the books that came with the dolls), although the full story is described in Kristy and Triple Trouble: Kristy (as a favor to Mallory) took the triplets to the sporting goods store in Washington Mall to get new gloves for baseball. While they were supposed to be looking at gloves, they instead got a bat and baseball an played ball right there in the middle of the store. They ended up creating quite a mess and had to clean it up before she would get them their gloves.

I'm more than willing to help out when you write your Pike prompts, if you need me to. :) I know the canon for JAB and Vanessa the best (because I've played 3/4 of them in RPGs before), but I'm fairly decent with the younger Pikes, too. Oddly enough, though, I really don't know Mal quite as well.

I found the Thomas/Brewers annoying for awhile, too. I still don't really care much for DM - does he have a personality? - but the others have been growing on me.

Have you read the FFs? Kristy's Big News is one of my absolute favorite books, and Charlie and Sam are particularly amazing in it. (And, gah, now I want to go scrounge the regular series for Charlie and Sam goodness. :P )

I'm more than willing to help out when you write your Pike prompts, if you need me to. :)

Awesome! I will eventually need help - my table has 10 Pike prompts, LOL :P Weirdly enough, I'm going back and re-reading the Jessi and Mallory books now (the ones I have, at least) because those are the ones I didn't reread incessantly when I was younger.

I think what bothered me about the Thomas/Brewer clan was the focus on the younger ones. I was not (and still am not) a Karen fan, and you're right ~ David Michael (and Andrew) didn't get much of a personality. And then there's Emily Michelle, who's the same age as wunderkind Gabbie Perkins o.O Ugh.

But the older Thomas brothers? Yum, I'll take them any day of the week!

Have you read the FFs? Kristy's Big News is one of my absolute favorite books, and Charlie and Sam are particularly amazing in it.

That is, in fact, the only FF book I've read cover to cover, and it was precisely because it was about the Thomas family. (I've skimmed the two FF Super Specials, but the rest of the series I pretty much avoid. I liked the baby-sitting chapters in the regular series, and didn't care much for the ongoing angst of catty teen girls. I was 17 when the FF series started, that was probably why, LOL.)
