So as I've said before, Pumpkin, Ellie, and Tarragon are three sides to the same coin. When trying to create the sisters I just made Pumpkin kid-Ellie and Tarragon super-Ellie. One is still trying to figure out who she wants to be, one is over confident and self important. While Ellie isn't actively trying to mold Pumpkin into herself, Tarragon certainly is. The issue of course is Tarragon didn't tell Pumpkin becoming the center of attention meant approval and adoration. For Tarragon, negative attention is still attention. I'm sure we've all known individuals like that. For clarity sake, Desiree and Frances aren't dating. I know I never made that clear. They're just friends, but she obviously has some latent crush on him. I'm sure she's never told him. I'm sure she's just spent the majority of her free time with him, never acting upon or expressing emotions, bottling them up, then letting hurt feelings explode in unnecessary fashion on someone that had nothing to do with it. God, wasn't high school FUN!?
