They are Andrew and Casey. Until it gets written they are nothing more or less.

I'll try out a collab.
I would help think up the settings, twisting tropes, and build up the characters.
I don't quite understand this question, but I hope to stick around from beginning to end.
Character plans: Personally, I've seen enough of the twins who are the same/opposites get played out. Maybe have them as fraternal twins (have similar looks). I always wanted to try out writing an extroverted person with anxiety, Casey could have that, with a desire to prove himself in whatever he's interested in, and determination. At the start, is awkward and makes a lot of mistakes. Later on, learns not to let his fears control him (though he's still afraid) For Andrew,  he's someone who isn't usually noticed at first, but has good intuition and has shown to be the man behind the man in groups and comes across as the most emotionally controlled. Actually feels like he's more impulsive deep down, which has caused problems for the people around him when he was younger. Needs to learn to balance his random side and controlled side.
Plot plans: Unsure, this will depend on the genres - comedy-mystery, dark/horror-mystery, crime mystery, as well as the themes and main question of the story.

sounds good. I love your character ideas. The story will be up by the end of november, probably by tomarrow actually. my character devlopment had them down as not close so they are not running around like "Ohh where is my twin!? i cant live without them by my side" because that is super annoying. they will be there own people.

@sar-low, Sounds like a plan.  If you want a moment of humour, maybe have a side character make that joke and get immediately shot down.

What could be our main plot? What is our question?

I was thinking it is winter and strange things start happening. windows left open doors swinging on their own. enter the twins.  then mysterous item goes missing and a new one shows up in its place.

Okay, so the questions we are asking the reader will be:
- Why and how are the windows and doors moving (that can't be explained with the wind).
-What happened to this one item?
-What is this new item?

These are good start.
