I'm working on a scene where some characters are getting introduced to each other.
When I first wrote out this script, I had Cherise, the girl who was introducing everyone, gesture to Victoria and say "And this of course is Victoria, but her friends call her Vikki."
Then when I got to the point where I was drawing it, I realized how unnatural that line sounded. She IS one of Victoria's friends, and she DOES call her Vikki.
But I don't quite feel that she should introduce her as Vikki to a stranger. I feel that I need that declaration that "her friends call her Vikki" to separate her being called by two "different" names.
Maybe I'm just over thinking it, but I can't figure out what this character would actually say when giving introductions.
I would appreciate some feedback. Especially from any females with somewhat-bubbly personalities that match my character.
