  • A girl(Me. Will write as G from now on) and a boy(will wrote as B from now on) used to be very close friends through out all of daycare - 3rd grade. They did gymnastics together where B's father taught. Then they went to gymnastics camp together the summer of their third grade year. When they got back G disappeared for the rest of summer strangest of all when school starts up she stopped talking or even looking at B and quits gymnastics.
    This goes on into high school. B is kind of a *nerd and has no girls for friends. G is a loner. B decides to ask G to a school dance despite having not talked to her since 3rd Grade.
    G wont talk to him so B tries to figure out what went wrong....

    Why G left:
    B's father(Who ran both the gymnastics camp and the gymnastics lessons) molested G for a while and finally he raped her at the camp so she quit. She quit because she was afraid of being near B's father, but she felt to guilty and ashamed to tell B what happened so she just stopped talking to him.

    My Character:

    Full Name: Charlotte Alejandra Murphy

    Nickname(s): Now- Charlie, Aleja(By her mom), Cam(Her initials), Shorty
    When She was little- Lottie(She refuses to respond to that anymore, but up until 3rd grade that was practically her name)

    Age (16-18): 16 (Or just about to turn 16...depends when the RP is...)

    DOB: 13 September 1999

    Looks: Charlie is half Cuban half American(Various 'races' mixed in). Her skin is a light golden tan. She's short standing at 4'11" and a little chubby in her build. She isn't 'fat' so to speak she just ha sa little chub. She ha sa hard time keeping the weight off.
    Charlie has dark brown long hair she generally keeps tied in a braid down her back. Her eye brows are normal and her eye lashes are slightly thick.
    She has dark hazelly eyes she got from her father. There are flecks of amber and brown in them making them dance in the sunlight. She has to wear a very thick set of glasses so she can see. They are a purple plastic rectangle frame.
    Charlie has a slightly round face, she has a button nose and small ears.
    On her shins, arms, and hands are scars from working on a farm and other various childhood adventures and misadventures she's had.

    Height: 4'11"

    Weight: 105-110 lbs (She's a touch on the chunky side because she has a hard time controlling her weight)

    Style: Very practical. She wears jeans, cargo pants, old t-shirts, flannels, and a hoodie. Her shoes are old tennis shoes.

    Personality: She's a quiet girl especially at school. She's very good at keeping a secret. Charlie doesn't do really well in school. She is dyslexic and has a lot of energy. She hates being in class and sitting still for a long time and struggles with reading and homework. She never vents her energy through speech though she loves working and has a very good work ethic.
    Charlie isn't good at sharing or making friends because she's so reserved when it comes to people. If she does make friends however she will stick with them through thick and thin. If Charlie leaves a friend something serious happened.
    Charlie is tough, a little too tough. She's good with her little siblings.

    Hobbies: She works on her family's small farm and enjoys fixing up cars and such(She'll help neighbors with their tractors and cars and works in the mechanic shop at school). Charlie is trying her hand at woodworking so far she's not very good.

    Talents: She's a hard worker and cook pretty well. She's a good mechanic and is actually very good at gymnastics.

    Flaws: Charlie's a little sensitive about her body(She's had weight struggles due to her condition), but not to the point of being anorexic or anything close to that. She isn't the most patient with people she thinks are bratty. She doesn't share feelings and such with people easily.

    Pets?: Elvis- http://i.imgur.com/4OpA7Bs.png (Male , Still a puppy) and Admiral- 8HXExE4 (Female, 9 years old). On the farm they have 10 sheep(1 male), 2 cows(They trade with the farm next over if they need the use of a bull), 9 chickens(1 Rooster), 5 cheese(1 male), 8 goats(1 male).

    Piercings/Tattoos?: She has her ears pierced that's it.

    Quick Bio: She lives on a farm out away from the school and town a good ways. She has a large family having 11 siblings. Her mother is Cuban her grandparents fled to America about a year before her mother was born. Though the farm brings in a good amount of money the family isn't 'rich' because of the amount of kids they have and due to some medical expenses some of the kids have.


    Father: Jack Emmanuel Murphy(He goes by Jack).(42) Jack is a tall man standing at 6'4". He has tanned skin from working on the farm and is very strong. He not exactly 'buff' or toned though. He has very dark sandy hair that he keeps short. His eyes are a light hazel with flecks of silver and gold in them. He has a strong face and a nice smile.

    Mother: Elysa Felcia Murphy (37). Elysa is a smaller woman in stature standing at barely 5'3". She has a full build and though she isn't chunky she isn't thin either. She's healthy looking. She has golden/bronzey tanned skinned and has pitch black hair. Her hair is long and she is very good at putting it up in fancy yet practical styles. She has stretch marks on her abdomen but she's not ashamed of how she looks. She has dark chocolate brown eyes.


    Jack Emmanuel Jr.(19, enlisted in the Army, Male...Goes by Junior or Jem most of the time), Garth Esteven(19, enlisted in the Navy, Male) - The boys are tall and muscled. They have a darker tanned skin taking more after their mother and black short hair. Their hair is in military regs. Both boys have strong facial features and deep brown eyes. They are about 6'3" tall.

    Georgia Elysa(18, in college in another state, Female) - Georgia has lightly tanned skin, it's lighter than the rest of her family's because she's been off at college and not working on the farm. She has dark brown long hair and very dark brown eyes. She is about 5'7".

    Noah Julian(11, Male) - Noah takes after his father in looks. He has a very dark blonde hair(Like wet sand colored.) in a short cut that doesn't touch his ears. He is lightly tanned from working on the farm. He has blue eyes. He is slightly lanky in build standing at 4'10" but being rather skinny.

    Sawyer Rigel(11, Female) - Sawyer looks almost like a mini Charlie except she's thinner. She stands at 4'10" also and is lanky looking like her brother. Her hair is dark brown and her skin lightly tanned. She also has hazel eyes.

    Jessie Paladia(9, Female) - Jessie has dirty blonde hair like her older brother. She has hazel eyes and like the whole family has a good tan from working outside a lot. Her hair isn't long it goes to just past her shoulders and she like to keep it in a pony tail. She stands at 4'7" and is a slightly chunky but that's just baby fat and she's a very healthy girl.

    Samuel Octavio(7, Male) - Samuel has very dark brown hair, his skin is tanned and he has sky blue eyes. (They say the blue eyes in the family came from their grandfather on their dad's side). Like all the boys in the family Samuel keeps his hair short.

    Joshua Valentin(6, Male) - Joshua's hair is a dark sandy color. He likes his hair a little thick on top but it still doesn't touch his ears. He has hazelly eyes though they lean more towards green. Joshua always seems to be getting in scrapes and trouble and nearly always has a cut or a bruise from falling out a tree, running through the woods, or whatever else he does. He has tanned skin and freckles around his cheeks and nose.

    Griffith Mio(4, Male) - Griffith has Down Syndrome. He has tanned skin and very dark hazel eyes. HIs hair is black and is messy, a little longer than the rest of the boys because he hates hair cuts, it barely touches his ears most of the time. He's a very small boy and is a little stocky.

    Justus Trevia(2, Female), Heidi Rosalin(2, Female) - Justus and Heidi are identical twins. They both have slightly curly dark brown hair and bright blue eyes. Their skin is light, it has a touch of tan in it because of their mother's Cuban blood but for now they are lighter skinned then the rest of the family.
    Justus is the younger twin, the twins had to be born via c-section and Heidi's spinal cord was wrapped around Justus 's neck when they were born. This cut off circulation to the brain and made it so Justus didn't get enough nutrients to her brain. The doctors say she will have developmental problems for her whole life. Heidi can walk, but Justus only crawls right now.

    Extra (no find outs): She has Diabetes Type 1 and always carries around a small bag with snacks, needles, and other supplies she needs for her condition.


    Charlie trudged along the road towards school. She had to start walking very early because the high school was a good long walk from her farm. Her younger siblings walked with her chatting and laughing. Charlie watched her younger siblings carefully making sure they weren't absentmindedly wandering into the road while they talked with one another.
    As they walked past some of the other farms they'd pick up other groups of kids heading into town for school. Some of the farmers homeschooled their kids, but Charlie's mother never really felt confident enough to teach her kids. Charlie grabbed Samuel's hand to keep him from wandering into the street,
    "Hey stay near me bud, don't want you getting hit." she advised her younger brother. Joshua wouldn't be starting school until next year so Samuel(Or Sam as he went by) was the youngest child there. Charlie let go of her brother's hand and let him run ahead with his friends.
    The rowdy group of farmers's kids pounded through the little village/town that had the schools in it. Charlie waved to her younger siblings as they headed into the elementary school. She'd be walking home alone because the schools let out at different times. Charlie felt confident her siblings would make it home OK though, she always did. Noah and Sawyer had good heads on their shoulders and they'd walk home with the rest of the elementary school kids going that way.
    Charlie turned and trudged towards the high school. She tightened the knot of the purple plaid shirt tied around her waist. Today she was wearing faded black cargo pants, a yellow t-shirt with NAVY written in navy blue on it, and her cowgirl-work boots(http://i.imgur.com/bE85T2H.jpg). She gripped the straps of her backpack tighter as she entered the school.
    The noise of teenagers talking and getting ready was almost deafening in the halls as kids slammed lockers, rushed hither and thither and talked with friends.
    Charlie walked over to her locker and opened it up.

    (OK Post your character and make your first post. It doens't have to be as long as mine it can be longer I don't care.)

Full name: Xavier Skye Bennet
Age: 16

Xavier is a pretty nerdy boy and often spends his time with his head in books. He it one of the nerdy boys that are also pretty sweet and outgoing, although after Lottie had just left him he had seemed to be pretty quiet now and again.
He has a tattoo on his back of black wings and one on her wrist that says change in Chinese. He also occasionally wears a lip ring although it irritates him.
Brief bio:
Xavier has had a pretty normal life, a calm and perfect one. He was born as an only child and quickly became one of the 'loners' in elementary school. This left him to focus on his grades as the years went by but when he met Charlie, it brought a little bit of colour into his life. Xavier was obviously torn when she left him suddenly, but he still didn't know why.
(Hope that's okay.)


Xavier dug his hands into his pockets as he left his house with an apple in his mouth, munching on it as his legs walked forward. He bit his lip and sighed as he saw his former best friend walking in the same direction he was with all of her siblings. He smiled lightly, even though she wouldn't see. He comtineud to walk, watching as Lottie dropped off her siblings at their own school he sighed, forgetting about her just as she had forgot him.

He entered through the school doors just as she had and he kept his eyes glued to the floor. Xavier bit his lip as he walked over to his locker, which was unfortunately rig next to hers. He let out a quiet sigh that Charlotte could obviously hear. Xavier took out his books and turned to her with forced confidence.

"U-Uh, Charlotte...I was wondering if you wanted to go to the dance with me?"

He said as a blush appeared to his cheeks. He didn't even know why he had asked, but he wanted to try and get back together as friends with her. The only thing Xavier could do was to try...

(Cool a couple questions.
How does a 16 year old get a tattoo? I thought it was illegal to tattoo a minor? (Unless he had parent consent maybe? I dunno you don't have to change anything really just wondering...)
And does Xavier live on a farm? Or like an orchard maybe? Or does he just have a house in town with his parents? A house in the country with no farm?)

Charlie heard Xavier sigh she generally tried to ignore him. It was awkward since his locker was right next to hers. She pulled out a text book, a small note book, and a long, thin wooden pencil box that held all the writing utensils she needed, her Abuelo(Her Mom's father) had made all the children a wooden pencil case before they started school, he'd actually made Xavier one too because they'd been so close when they were little he'd said the boy 'was like his nieto(Grandson)'.
She shoved the box and the note book in her cargo pocket, stuck the text book under her arm, and turned to leave when she heard Xavier address her.
Charlotte...she rarely actually got called Charlotte. She glanced at him then looked away, panic rising too her throat. The older he got the more her former friend looked like his father. She swallowed when he asked her too the dance.
Charlie knew she was being rude, but her throat felt too tight if talked her voice would crack and he'd know something was wrong. She turned and walked quickly away ducking into the bathroom she bent over a sink and splashed cold water over her face. She put her text book down on the counter and rested her hands on the edge of the sink staring into it. This was pathetic, she was pathetic...she couldn't even look at Xavier without feeling panicked. Charlie felt her arms trembling, she splashed more cold water on her face and the dried it off. She needed to get to class.
Charlie left the bathroom and walked towards her class. She had Mechanics I first. Charlie would've rather taken a more advanced Mechanics class, but they wouldn't let her until she went through the basic class because it was 'district policy'. She thought it was a dumb policy considering the amount of farmers kids with prior mechanical experience that weren't allowed to advance without going through a class where they knew everything taught.
Charlie entered the class and sat down. The first weeks of class were in a class room going over basic engine parts and stuff like that. She pulled her pencil out and chewed on the end nervously still feeling on edge.
