I know we all like imagining what our favourite sitters grew up like, but do you think of the kids? It's probably a bit difficult to imagine careers for the kids, but what do you think they would have been like in high school?

I remember a fanfic that focused on Karen (and I think it was a Karen/David Michael fic...), and if I'm remembering correctly, Karen and Hannie had had a fight sometime in middle school. I can't remember much of it, but I think Hannie got sick of Karen pushing them around. Nancy, I imagine, found herself in the middle and eventually found some theatre kids and stuck to them. I've always felt this would have been the most likely outcome, especially as I've been re-reading the BSC:LS books lately. I also picture Karen being the kid the rest of her classmates tolerate, but just barely. The one who is, for the most part, well meaning, but still comes off as bossy and the kids therefore avoid her because of it.

What do you folks think?

I always figured Karen was ADHD and that's why I have a love/hate relationship with her. Honestly, though, I'm surprised that the kids in Ms Coleman's class put up with her as well as they did. And I say that as a child and now an adult with ADHD. :P

I would hope that Karen found some talent to channel her excess energy and big ideas into. At least in my case, it helps greatly to have art and writing. Perhaps Karen would go into writing too...with that imagination, she could be another JK Rowling!

I started a fanfic awhile back where Nicky Pike and Mary Anne got eloped and it caused a huge rift between the Pikes and Mary Anne because they did it right when Nicky turned 18 and he had already gotten Mary Anne pregnant or something.

That's the only one I can remember that's not sitter-centric.
