My character is Eva, a transgender woman and drag performer who lives with her wife and three adopted children. Her father (who you would also play sporadically), a military man, kicked her out around twenty when she finally told him she was transgender. Your character is Eva’s younger sister, also a trans girl, struggling to hide her identity from a father she knows won’t accept it.

Shortly before kicking Eva out of the house, her father met a woman, and the two had—what they thought—was a son (your character, age 14-16) together. But eventually, the woman passed away (how is up to you), and Eva’s father was left to raise his second son on his own.
Your character was a very soft and sensitive boy, much to the chagrin of his father, and his father was constantly trying to man him up. He, however, had slowly come to the realization that he was actually a she.


Having heard tales of his older brother Eric (Eva) being disowned in the years before your character was born, she was terrified to come out to her father, for fear of what his reaction to her transness might be like. Having been keeping her identity under wraps for so long, your character begins to struggle more and more to keep her secret—desperate for an outlet or someone to talk to and on one particularly bad evening, decides to go to her older sister, who knows nothing of her existence, for help.

The pair bond and become close as time passes, and eventually your character makes the decision to come out to her father, which goes poorly. However, instead of kicking her out, his disappointment turns to anger, and he begins to abuse her. Your character panics and flees to her sister in tears, and that’s all I have thus far.

My requirements:
  • 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. At least four paragraphs per post with good spelling, grammar, and detail. I can make exceptions at times. This is a big thing for me. I get annoyed when people can't similarly match my post lengths. If you 'typ LIek diss' and don't use decent capitalization and punctuation, or use long run on sentences I'll most likely drop the thread or ignore the request to RP with me. Everyone makes mistakes, and I understand that, but if you can't manage basic grammar then please don't ask to RP with me. If you can't think of what to reply with, PM me and I can add a bit more. I would prefer you to match my length. Also, so I know you read this, tell me your favorite color when you express interest. Otherwise you will be ignored.
  • 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.

My characters: these expand when you click them!

eva robins.jpg

Age: 30

Occupation:
Drag/burlesque performer, show director


Gender:
Transgender woman


Sexuality:
Unlabeled, prefers to answer the question by simply saying "Kennedy"


Physical Description:
Her eyes are light brown. She is 5'11. Her hair is light brown, straight, and reaches the middle of her back,


Personality:
Eva is soft spoken. She is gentle and patient, but easily bruised. Rather than yell, she tends to cry when she is angry.


Bio:
Eva was born Eric Robins. Her mother Halle was a military nurse and Eva was extremely close to her. They did everything together. Eva's father was much stricter and no nonsense and was a military man--how he met Eva's mother. Eva was forced into strict gender stereotypes by her father, and they never felt quite right to her. It didn't hit her that she was transgender until she was around fifteen, when she finally found out that there were people like her in the world. Even after that, she was hesitant to come out. After all, no one had ever explicitly told her she was different. She had to figure that out on her own, and the idea terrified her. Shortly after she had finally accepted herself, her mother contracted a strange illness from pricking herself with a used needle, and was dead within a year. She wouldn't even let Eva touch her for fear that she would catch her illness. Poor Eva was absolutely devastated. She kept her identity bottled up until she was around twenty and already living on her own, often putting on makeup and going to gay bars to watch drag shows. She then finally came out to her father. It did not go well. He cut her off and stopped speaking to her completely. Eva began performing to make money, and the night her father kicked her out, she met another trans woman performer called Kennedy. Kennedy bought Eva a drink, and the pair went home together in what was originally only meant to be a one night stand eventually turned to the pair living together. Their time performing allowed them to befriend a small group of queer kids who also had poor home lives. Eva and Kennedy took pity on them. The small group of three became very close to the women, and were basically adopted by them. Now they all live together, Eva and Kennedy being surrogate parents to them. Eva is very motherly and protective over her adoptive children.


kennedy piane.gif

Age: 29

Occupation:
Drag/burlesque performer, show director


Gender:
Transgender Woman


Sexuality:
Lesbian


Physical Description:
Her skin is brown, as are her eyes. Her hair is thick and curly, and she keeps it long. She passes extraordinarily well. She is tiny, at just barely five feet tall, a result of her mother's side of the family. All of the men were small, which ultimately helped Kennedy post transition.


Personality:
Kennedy is fiery, and has a sharp tongue. She is more likely to stand up for herself than Eva is. She can be gentle when she needs to be--she is usually the one who Hugo is the most calm around. She is patient with her children.


Bio:
Kennedy was born Keegan Piane, and was raised solely by her mother. She had a brother named Logan, who was younger than her by a year. Kennedy took no interest in anything masculine, and her mother never had any issue with it. She teased Kennedy often, calling her a little diva and suggesting that maybe Kennedy would be a model someday. Kennedy's brother was not nearly as accepting of her. He was embarrassed of her, ignoring her at school and in public, but at home he treated her like trash. He kicked her, punched her, and destroyed her things. Kennedy had never been a fighter, and fighting back often only got her hurt. He wouldn't stop, no matter what their mother tried to do to stop him. When she came out at nineteen, things only got worse. Her brother continued to hurt her. She saved up money, and once she had enough, fled the house, fearing for her life. She began performing, and shortly after, met Eva. The two became incredibly close and moved in together. Kennedy does not speak to her brother anymore, but is still close to her mother, and the two talk often. Upon meeting Jupiter, Hugo, and Ronan she became incredibly close to all of them, and now considers them her children. She loves them all equally, but is closest with Hugo. Shortly after her bottom surgery on a visit to her mother, her brother cornered her into the bathroom and sexually assaulted her. Eva is the only person who knows other than her mother, who caught them thanks to Kennedy's screaming and struggling. She doesn't talk about it, but suffers PTSD as a result.

blonde.jpg

Age: 17

Occupation:
Student, performer


Gender:
Agender


Sexuality:
Asexual


Physical Description:
They are about 5'8. Their hair, when left down, goes across their forehead in blonde bangs. More often than not it is styled into a blonde quiff. Their eyes are blue. They always have a girlish edge to them, and it is not uncommon to see Jupiter dressed in full femme just for casual daywear.


Personality:
Kind, Responsible, flamboyant, protective of their brothers.


Bio:
Jupiter's mother left when they were around five or six, and Jupiter was sent to live with their maternal aunt and uncle, both of whom were very strict Catholics. They both forced the kid into things they showed no interest in, all in attempts to make them more masculine. Their uncle often beat them in an attempt to toughen them up. Jupiter rejected nearly all of them, and always felt different from the other little boys in their class. Upon hitting puberty, their discomfort only heightened, and Jupiter realized that they didn't neatly fit into either box, not just in terms of their behavior, but in the way they felt about their body as well. They often longed to be rid of their genitals, and desired the feminine curves that almost all the girls they knew seemed to be getting. They didn't feel male or female. Around sixteen, they began sneaking out, putting on makeup, and going to drag shows to watch the kings and queens perform, hiding this from their aunt and uncle knowing that they would never approve. They befriended a few queens and began performing under the name Jupiter Bowie. They practically abandoned their birth name, Kevin, and all of their friends (most of whom were drag queens) began calling them Jupiter (or Jupe, Jupey, etc.) and referring to them with female pronouns. Jupiter finally felt accepted. The blissful period didn't last long, and Jupiter was caught sneaking out one night. Their aunt and uncle threw a fit, and even though Jupiter tried to explain how they felt, neither adult listened. They constantly nagged at Jupiter for "turning his back on god and choosing to be a sinner." They refused to call Jupiter by the name they preferred, and practically drove the poor kid insane. They no longer treated Jupiter with the kindness they had always shown them as a child, and became extremely cold toward them. Jupiter spent more and more time out of the house, and eventually just chose to leave their family behind, not that anyone really cared. They were taken two transgender performers, Kennedy and Eva, and the two became Jupiter's substitute parents.

Kyra Currie.jpg

Age: 15

Occupation:
Student, performer


Gender:
Cis Male


Sexuality:
Gay


Physical Description:
His hair is dark brown, left long on top and shaved on the sides. He is 5'4 and thin, on the lower side of average. His eyes are gray.


Personality:
Optimistic and cheerful, often too much. He sees the best in people. His optimism leaves him with a habit of sometimes not realizing other people's stress or hurt. He has mostly recovered from his abuse, but still flinches somewhat frequently.


Bio:
Ronan and his twin brother Hugo spent their entire childhoods being shifted from foster home to foster home, never knowing their real parents. Many of the foster homes treated them poorly, and the brothers were often separated even though they were supposed to be fostered and adopted together. He and Hugo are both very close, practically joineid at the hip. Ronan is the more upbeat, positive twin. He and his brother are both gay, and this wasn't sitting well with their foster family at the time--strict evangelical christians. Ronan began to spend more and more time out of the house, experimenting with makeup and going to drag and burlesque shows. He began going out as a drag queen called Kyra Currie, and one night decided to take his brother out with him. The two felt at home at the shows, which was where they met Jupiter. Shortly after they met Eva and Kennedy, and were the first two to be taken in by them. The twins were grateful to be off the streets and with people who seemed to care for them. Ronan has mostly recovered from his abuse, but there are signs that he has been hurt, such as flinching when Eva or Kennedy reach for his face to fix his hair or his wigs. Other than that he is generally happy and very attached to his new family.

Kasha Currie.jpg


Age: 15

Occupation:
Student, performer


Gender:
Cis Male


Sexuality:
Gay


Physical Description:
His hair is dark brown, left long on top and shaved on the sides. He is 5'4 and extremely skinny as a result of malnourishment in his former homes. His eyes are gray.


Personality:
He does not take to new people right away, and has a tendency to automatically view others as being out to hurt him. He is very attached to his family, and is terrified of losing them, to the point where he has developed crippling separation anxiety. He panics when around unfamiliar people, and is afraid of being shunted back into a life of uncaring foster families and abuse. He has been known to run off and hide when things get too tense, or when he feels an argument brewing. Otherwise, he is very kind.


Bio:
Hugo's many years in foster care affected him deeply. He is not as positive or optimistic as his twin brother, and is incredibly cautious and hesitant. He has cystic fibrosis, which went undiagnosed until he was nearly ten as a result of neglect. He was unsure when his brother first began to take him to drag shows, but after a while he blossomed and became very social at them. He took the drag name Kasha Currie, the same last name as his brother's. Their foster parents at the time were much harsher on him than they were on his brother, beating him when his brother was out. He formed no attachments with any of his foster parents or siblings, and all he really cared about was his brother. He is still scarred from his abuse, both mentally and physically. He was this way with Jupiter at first, then Eva and Kennedy, but they showed him kindness and empathy, and he slowly opened up to them. They took him in along with his brother, and Jupiter soon followed. Hugo is very close to both of the older women, but is most attached to Kennedy, as he met her first.
