Trait Negative is the ninety-third webisode in the KateModern video series.


(Charlie is at work, talking on the phone with the camera on her desk behind it.)

Charlie: Yep. (Various shots of Charlie looking bored.) Okay, thanks! Bye! (hangs up the phone and moves it to the side to talk into the camera) We have a plan. Look, this guy in America saw this video that I posted about Kate, right, and he's come up with a way that he can probably help save her. It's a bit of a long shot but it could really work. He has access to this special serum, right, and once it's injected into trait positive girls it turns them back to normal. (sighs) So if we can give it to Kate and inject her with the serum, then she can be normal again and Michelle Clore and the Order won't have any need for her. Yesss! This could be the answer.

(Gary appears in the background. Charlie gets alarmed and moves her phone base to block the camera.)

Gary: Who are you talking to?

Charlie: No one! No one; I wasn't talking to any one. I was just practicing what I was going to say... (picks up the phone) on the phone.

Gary: As long as you're not blogging again.

Charlie: No, no, I'm not vlogging. I was just going to-

Gary: I don't want to catch you using your Messenger either.

Charlie: No? Sure. Sure. (Gary leaves and she looks around nervously while holding the phone to make sure no one is watching. She then moves the phone out of view again.) Look, I've organized a next day delivery courier pick-up from L.A., right. It should be here tomorrow, but now I've got to figure out a way to give it to Kate somehow. (bites her lip) One problem at a time, though, right? (sighs) Thanks, Spencer. (winks at the camera)

(Cut to Charlie chatting with Gavin on Windows Messenger).

Gavin says: Who is this Spencer bloke anyway? How do you know you can trust him?
Charlie says: got any better ideas?

Charlie: I thought not. (fixes the camera and dials a number on the phone) (Whispering:) Hello? Hey mum!


  • After this video was posted, Gavin wrote on Charlie's Bebo page saying:
Gavin said:
Spencer...hmmm....strange name. Are you sure he's for real? Gavx


How many other boys do you talk to on the internet?
  • In the last shot of the screen, the IM changes inexplicably to a slightly different conversation. The text on the screen reads:
Gavin says: Screw Kate, you should come [...] me..... Who's this Spencer bloke [...] do you know you can trust him?
Charlie says: you got any better ideas?"
  • Though the video was released on October 24, 2007, the messenger window open indicates that the conversation between Charlie and Gavin occurred on October 17, 2007. It also seems that she is chatting after the normal work hours (at 17:46).
