My character is a transgender woman. Your characters are her twin cousins (age 11-13). They were very close to Marilyn when they were younger, as she often spent time with them and cared for them when it was needed. Marilyn was kicked out of her parent's house when she was 18 and the twins were 7, and along with her parents, most of her extended family cut her off, including your character's parents. Their parents never really explained why (so they don't know that Marilyn is trans), just told them they weren't allowed to see Alex anymore, and all they really knew was that he was staying in a motel somewhere. They never forgot about their cousin though and always longed to see him again. Their parents eventually died (exactly how is up to you) and the twins ran off together in fear of being separated and also to search for their cousin. They eventually find the motel Marilyn and her girlfriend are living in and end up staying with them. I was thinking that they would both be a bit confused about Her gender too. That's all I really have so far in terms of plot. My requirements: (I swear nobody ever reads these. PLEASE READ THEM.) -Please don't join the RP, and then drop it right in the middle. It bugs me when people only post once, or post a few times and then just leave. -Please be advanced or at least adept. At least four paragraphs per post with good spelling and grammar. I can make exceptions at times. This is a big thing for me. I get annoyed when people can't do this. I don't mind a few screw ups, but if you 'typ LIek diss' and don't use decent capitalization and punctuation I'll most likely drop the thread. If you can't think of what to reply with, PM me and I can add a bit more. -Be active PLEASE. I'm online most every day. I haven't RPed in a while due to real life issues, and I understand you might need to drop. If you do please PM me first. I've RPed with people who have completely just disappeared. This is a sample of my writing. Please be able to match it. Marilyn "Moxie" Havanna (born Alexander Havanna) Age: 24 Hair: naturally dark brown, partly dyed honey blonde Eyes: Brown Marilyn was born in a small town and grew up being called Alexander. She had one sibling, her twin brother Devin, and despite their differences, the two of them were always extremely close. Devin wasn't hyper masculine, but he at least took an interest in some things that boys normally enjoyed, like sports and things. Little Alexander was a completely different story, and always expressed extreme discontent with their assigned gender, the only real masculine interest being baseball. The child was persistent with cries of, "I'm not a boy!" but was told to stop being ridiculous by their parents. Marilyn began demanding to be called by a female name (Moxie) at the age of five, but her parents refused, of course. Devin was the only one who ever called her that, though always in secret (He occasionally still calls her that when worried or teasing, but he's the only one allowed to address her that way). Her parents made it very clear that the way she felt was not okay, and Marilyn started to repress her gender issues. She thought that maybe if she tried to ignore them and be just an average guy the feelings would go away. She got rid of all the feminine clothing she had collected, stopped her private sessions of wearing makeup, and borrowed her brother's clothing. The feelings of dysphoria did not go away, instead they only got worse. She tried to kill herself several times, being caught and stopped by Devin the final time when she was nearly eighteen. He was the first person she ever confided in about being a transgender woman before taking the name Marilyn, and he accepted her one hundred percent. After a few pronoun slips and name screw ups Devin managed to embrace Marilyn as well as the idea that he had never had a brother, only a sister whom everyone had thought was a boy. Marilyn's parents did not react nearly as well. They kicked her out of the house and told her to act like a man or not to come back at all. She had no money, and has been surviving mostly by sleeping around for money and doing any sort of odd job she can manage, as she has had difficulty finding a regular job. She wants to have surgery and be on estrogen to make her appear more feminine, but has no money to afford treatment. Until then she is stuck relying on makeup skills. She is good with kids and is a very talented cook. She is very outspoken and friendly, but is cautious around people she is unfamiliar with. Tammie Martin (birth name Carter Martin) Age: 23 Hair: Curly, blonde Eyes: Green Tammie's parents divorced when she was eight years old. Tammie stayed with her mother, who died shortly after she came out at eighteen. She hasn't spoken to her father in several years, and their relationship was always very strained. Tammie managed to keep her gender issues under wraps for most of her childhood, too afraid of being caught to act on them. Keeping it bottled up caused her to burst more than once, and she repeatedly attempted suicide by overdosing on pills. To her parents, she didn't necessarily seem like a feminine little boy. She was quiet, gentle, and more interested in books and writing than other little boys her age, but her parents had never thought anything of it. She struggled after her mother's death, not having anyone to help her through it or any friends to turn to. Her grief affected her job performance as a waitress, and she was fired shortly after. She turned to prostitution as a way to support herself, which was where she met her girlfriend, another transgender prostitute named Marilyn. She knocked Marilyn out of the way of a car and bandaged up the injuries she had sustained over the night, and Marilyn, who was older and had been on the street longer, gave her a place to stay. Tammie loves books and writing, and wants to one day be a writer, though she can often be very bubbly and theatrical. She is taking estrogen to femininize her body, though she cannot really afford to continue her treatment, and she often skips her daily injections and gives them to Marilyn instead.
