Okay, I'm getting an idea here. I recall on Farscape that Aeryn Sun died when her Prowler crashed into a frozen river while she was chasing a possessed John Crighton. However, P'au Zotoh Zhaan, who is the voice of Tempest, does a combined Delvian Unity, with the help of Stark, to bring Aeryn back to life and it worked.
Maybe this can be used to help bring Veronica back to life. Tempest can do it, with the help of Sonya.
"I've been here for around 50 years. I've seen Radiator Springs when it was a happy place. I've seen it when it got bypassed. Now I've got to see it like this. I'd hoped that, because of Lightning McQueen, this place would be back the way it should be. But it's not. Everywhere I look I see people getting hurt, people upset. It's not right to me. I didn't like the town when it had been as empty as it was, but instead of taking a turn for the better it's taken a turn for the worse."
Remember that? I, truthfully, agree with my own post. From what I saw on the movie, Radiator Springs became a happy place, not a 'OMG SHOOTING DYING DEPRESSED' place. I kind of want a change with that, and if it means talking to a member or two, so be it. Just thought I'd make myself clear.
Maybe I'm the only one with this opinion, in which case I'm sure you'll do nothing.
There have already been some ideas bounced around as to how to bring Radiator Springs back to the way it used to be, especially since there's the prospect of a new heliport being built which will bring more visitors (potential customers) to the town. But often when any town, large or small, is on the map that means that it not only gets the good stuff, but the bad stuff as well. It just cannot be prevented nor ignored, but HAS to be dealt with appropriately.
And besides, if we just limited the story to just making Radiator Springs the way it used to be, that means that everyone elses ideas will be suppressed and no one is going to be able to have any fun in the RP. It would cause everyone to leave and the RP to die.
I know that. But thank you for the first part. If I had known that then I'd have never said anything. *pushed Ramone from behind* Get your trunk out there and help instead of moping about and complaining, you lemon. >[
We can have minor drama and even major drama once in awhile, because you are right. Like Ramone breaking down up at the Wheel Well - minor drama. Ebony & friends getting trapped - major drama. We need to balance the two out so we have a roleplay that everyone can enjoy. :3
There is also internal conflict. Everyone's characters have it.
Ebony/Kirsten Sanders - has amnesia and is also having major trust issues right now; has also reunited with her long-lost mother, Melody. She wants to get her memories back (as she was doing in the cave before it collapsed) and is learning more about her past.
Amber Weathers - had a total emotional breakdown because of an argument with Kamui that she almost went tuner and now feels guilty about her actions. She is worried what this will do to her relationship with not only her friends, but with her boyfriend, General Lee Duke.
Rosa Swift - a tuned Ford Probe that lost her parents when she was five. She became a tuner for not only safety but for a family as well, seeing the DRH as her family. Has spikes that make her, as well as a few others, uncomfortable to be around her so that makes her pretty lonely. The only one who is not concerned about her spikes is Fabrizio, whom she is close friends with and she rarely ever leaves his side, except on some occasions.
Kamui Exan - despite being of Shooter background and heritage, she wants to show the world that it can dream again by driving toward her goal to race in the Piston Cup (no Shooter has ever been known to do that until she came on the scene). She is extremely sensitive and has an explosive temper. Don't ever call her a Shooter Mutt.
Darcy MacIsaac - barely had childhood because of her abusive stepfather would not let her follow her dreams. She's run away after so many beatings and sought refuge in RS, there making friends (her first friend was Ebony) and practically having the whole town rally beside her when her stepfather finally found her. She now has a boyfriend in Johnny Ford, a throwback Thunderbird, and is trying to get her life back together and wants to go into an art college to pursue her dream.
Bonnie Ferdinand - Sally's mother and also known as Satan Lady by Lightning McQueen (never says it to her face though). She always had arguments with her husband (Sally's father) and has never approved with her daughter becoming an attorney and living in Radiator Springs with a racecar for a boyfriend. She doesn't like mixed-breeds either, she's pure Porsche all the way. She is also trying hard to make up with Sally, but it's difficult. Lots of conflict here between her and Sally, Lightning, Kamui, and a few other characters that do not like her attitude.
Fabrizio Lambardi - friends with Rosa. He is an ex-photographer and has been having family problems back in his hometown in Iowa, which he rarely returns to right now. Had a strong disagreement with his brother, Dominic, about who is the one responsible for taking care of the family financially. Debating whether he should patch things up with Dominic or staying with Rosa.
Shawn Kleinsworth - an aero-hybrid who is extremely anti-social, except when he's on a temporary job (like painting Marisol's shop). Had a life of conflict and growing up different. Is on medication for life. Hasn't really had the need to go socialize with the other aero-cars that are there as well and doesn't like to be stared at because of his bent wing. Met Ebony and seems to be okay with her.
These are some of the major characters. There's more, but I cannot name them all now.

That I understand. It's only human, or in this case car. Though I don't post much about it, Ramone's internal conflict is basically that it was a huge slap in the face for him when he broke down up at the Wheel Well. Reminded him that he needs to take care of himself and enjoy life, but he seems to be having problems with doing the latter. There's Ramone's internal conflict for ya. That and he wants to spend time with Flo but it hasn't seemed to have been working out lately.
He could ask other couples for advice, as there are some of those in town that take advantage of a lull to be with each other whenever they can. One of these he can take an example from.
Couples that I know:
Flo and Ramone Sally and Lightning Darcy and Johnny Ondine and Mike Kamui and Slick Boost and Phoenix Clara and Robb Lyle and Huntress Amber and General Lee Strip and Lynda David and Veronica Cade and Flame Sara and Neil Alvin and Lisa Ebony and Slaytor Rosa and Fabrizio Zed and Diana Edward and Elizabeth Brandon and Harley (?) Nevada and Willow Sonya and Huracan Guido and Angelina Jake and Jas
And another couple that I had in mind and if Eva agrees:
Storm and Atsuko
