26 - Independent Photographer – Homosexual – Married
So we are clear, her name is pronounced ee-ON-thuh. She introduces herself as Ian. She is nice but a bit shy. Ian is highly athletic and works out most days of the week. She doesn’t have a car and either bikes or walks around town. She moved to Lochland Grove at the very end of May 2013. She was here summer of 2010 and 2012 visiting her half-sister. She speaks Russian fluently and does photography jobs as often as she can. She planned to pursue that career wholeheartedly when her sister graduated high school in 2016. Because she got married she stayed in town, and kept her postal worker job until December 2016. Currently she is helping raise her daughter and trying to work more on her photography.
She should have friends in town, as she is around a lot. She is already friends with Min Foster, Lyric Stuart, Nina Wallace, and her sister Alexius Majors. She is a nice girl who likes to go out dancing. She drinks infrequently, eats healthy, dresses modestly, and is a complete tomboy. If you have a game of soccer going and need some company she’ll be thrilled to play. She is also thrilled to play video games all night and hang around with guys, as long as they do not hit on her. She is probably the responsible friend in most cases.
Ian's wife is Lyric Stuart (formerly Martin), and before that she hadn't dated for over a year. So basically nothing has happened here in Lochland. Someone can like her, but that’s about it.
Guys who hit on Ian and don’t leave her alone. People who are so girly they think the world revolves around their mascara. People who judge her. Anyone who doesn’t like Ian’s little sister, or is mean to Min, or really anyone who is unpleasant to those Ian cares for. She’s not really fond of swearing, lewd behave, or immature behavior. That is the general situation there.
30 – HS Spanish teacher – Bisexual – Single
He is open-minded, very friendly, very outgoing, affectionate, generally charming and protective. He has a twenty two year old adopted son named Robin, who is about to graduate college. He has been teaching full time at the high school since 2011, and was a substitute for two years before that. He has lived in Lochland Grove since he was 11. He is the surrogate older brother of Bowie Levine. He will sit down and talk with just about anyone. He speaks with a slight Cajun accent, and speaks English, French, and Spanish fluently. For about a year things took a dark turn in his life. Being separated, enduring his PTSD, ect. Since he and his former fiancé separated he’s been having a rough time, but he doesn’t like to show it or let it eat him like it has in the past...
He likes to have fun. He likes taking a walk, going camping, maybe drinking a small bit but not a lot. He’s a depressive drunk. He likes dancing to crazy music and generally seeming a fool, but what does he care, he’s having fun. He has an American White Shepherd named Etienne that he adopted January 2013. Teagan has been here for so many years that he should have a lot of friends from before, but he is always happy to make more. He is quite protective of his friends. He is also friends with Lee Kenneth, Ryan Manning, and Orianna Glass who is his roommate.
Teagan is bisexual. He has very specific exes that are relevant NPCs in his past, and he dated a girl every year of high school. He enjoys flirting, and may have hit on people in the past, but after becoming single this time around he’s not sure what he wants.
Or people who just don’t like him. He can be jealous, if he likes someone. I am not sure if he has the capacity for violence, but maybe if he was pushed far enough. If you were mean to his son, if the make light of his past, or maybe if you just knew him growing up and things didn’t end well, he will not be nice to you. He won’t seek out conflict, but he is more than happy to get into a full blown argument with people he dislikes, especially if they bring it upon themselves. He is extremely protective of Bowie, and his son Robin, so those are all buzz words for this.
28 - Published Poet – Bisexual – Single – Writing
Uriah is a sweetheart. He is sensitive and a bit like a puppy, but he doesn’t always seem like it. He ended a very unhealthy and controlling relationship in February 2014. He moved to Lochland Grove in 2011. He spends most of his time at home or work, but when he gets out he likes Looseleaf and walking one of his cats at the park. Uriah was home schooled, has published 5 collections of poetry(at ages 16, 18, 19, 20, and 26) along with publishing in various literary journals. He has become kind of shy of late, but he manages. Also he’s a major klutz.
He isn’t hard to be friends with. He is dependable and kind, but he has been shut up so long that he rarely socializes. He probably knows some people from when he was with his ex-boyfriend, and met some friends around town. He probably has more friends that he met in 2011 than lately. He isn’t hard to get along with, but you have to do the initiating most of the time with his shyness. He is most relaxed around his sister Sarah Jane Sutton, and his “its complicated” Elle Felton.
I have said he is bisexual. He is not a dominant person, but he does take care of the people he cares about, at least as best he can. He sometimes seems to be flirting, due to how he talks, but often he isn’t. He cheated on his boyfriend of 2 years for about the last year, because the relationship ended, they just never said it. So he would have had some sexual, but not particularly emotional, relationships from back then. Right now he is probably a bit indifferent since he can’t really be with the person he wants to be with. Anything in the past can be discussed. He could be persuaded into some sort of relationship now, but he isn’t looking for one.
Well, he is a klutz, he is shy, he used to cheat on his boyfriend, those are all reasons someone might not like him. He accidentally breaks things a lot. He puts up with a lot of negativity. His ex’s new flings have at times taken to hating Uriah for things his ex claims he did. He is not above just straight up lying about Uriah out of pettiness, so people could have heard things that may or may not be true.
27 -Fitness Trainer – Bisexual – In a relationship
Frankie is the daughter of some very rich people in Italy. She felt restricted when her conservative family started judging her wild ways, and so she moved out at eighteen. She spent several years in England, then moved to Lochland in July 2013. Her cousin Catie Holmes lives here. She speaks English and Italian, and is non-fluent in French. Frankie is blunt, she is honest. She is smart, and manipulative. If you want someone to cuss you out, affectionately, and speak her mind, Frankie’s your girl. Don’t care? Neither does she. She can’t be wasting her time on people who don’t care about her. She worked at a Stripper at Stilettos from fall 2013 to January 2017, since then she left the job and started working as a fitness trainer at the gym. Ideally she wants to be a personal trainer, but that is a goal.
Been in town a while now. She’s made friends. Co-workers, drinking buddies, maybe someone she hooked up with a while ago. She is friendly. For all her bluntness, and her abrasiveness, she is a fun girl to be around. She isn’t awful by any means. Maybe someone who knows her parents, or her cousin, or knew her when she was younger. She is into the nightlife, and she works out. Usually she works out with a stripper pole, but still. She goes to a lot of parties in her apartment complex, and is generally helpful.
So Frankie is in a relationship. She has a very sweet girlfriend. She’s very loyal to her girlfriend. She is highly flirtatious. She basically flirts naturally. She could have hooked up back before September 2013, but it isn’t that likely, so anything here would be very old.
Frankie is blunt. She swears, she drinks, she messes with people. Its her life, and if you don’t like it, that is perfectly fine with her. Now walk away. That is her personality. She is very opinionated and very honest, and sometimes manipulates people. People who don’t like her are welcome to go on this list. Anyone who does anything to hurt her girlfriend, or her friends, is also very quickly on this list. She is not above getting back at people. As of late she has been quite firm in her ruining all romantic opportunities for her girlfriend's older brothers.
22 - Owner of Cupcake Lane Kids Care – Demisexual – Single
Sabrina has lived in Lochland Grove her entire life. She has eight year old quintuplet siblings, and both of their parents are in jail, for unrelated crimes, but for a very long time. She is raising her siblings on her own while running a small day care from her home. She is a mature and serious woman who has no interest in taking the easy way out of anything. She wears her feelings on her sleeve. She loves all things creative and artistic, but doesn’t really have time for that anymore. As of approximately mid 2015 Sabrina was asked to take over Body Image in town while the owner was away. She managed that business for six months, making sure it ran smoothly. Since then she had been back to just running her own business and taking care of her siblings.
She’s been here her whole life so she’d bound to know people. She isn’t overly social, and she isn’t super talkative, but she is in no way shy. She is very loyal to her friends. She doesn’t show her dreamer side off, but these people would know she has it in her. She is happy to do things for her friends and spend time with them, but she doesn’t have much free time. Since she has to tote the five children around with her, her friends need to be very understanding, and usually come to her. She is quite fond of anime and video games and would enjoy combining those with hanging out with friends. Some of her notable friends are Min Foster(who works for her), William Bird, Ryan Manning, and Aleksandra Petrova.
This is complicated. She ended up in a relationship with a man in fall 2015, and they dated until March 2017. Romantic relationships are something that require focusing on yourself and your personal happiness, and Sabrina is much more inclined to worry about her siblings and her business. That, mixed with the fact that Sabrina is young but grown up, and is basically the single parent to five young children, make it difficult for her to date. Considering she’s gone out with only one man, no one her age wants to deal with that many kids, and she doesn’t want to date people her own age because they’re usually not mature enough. Its complicated.
She’d direct, and she’s busy. That means she doesn’t always make friends. She dislikes people taking the easy way out. Her parents both committed crimes and went to jail. People have judged her for that. She thinks it is stupid that anyone would judge her for things she didn’t do, but she doesn’t put up with it. Or really anyone who judges someone else for something they can’t control. Anyone who thinks she shouldn’t be keeping her siblings together instead of living her life without them tick her off. That is her sorest topic; the idea that it would be better for her or for them if she’d sent them away and split them up makes her angry. Also, she is fiercely protective of the few people she thinks she can trust. Disrespecting them or mistreating them will earn you a permanent black mark from her, and she will not take that lightly.
32 - Waitress at Gertie’s – Heterosexual - Single
Seraphim moved to Lochland Grove in March 2013. Not long after that she got a job at Gertie’s. She is an easy going and friendly woman. Both of her parents died around the end of 2012, and she didn’t have siblings. She suffered from trauma induced amnesia but after being found by her former fiance she now knows who she is. There are still a lot of blanks, and a lot of emotional trauma to go through, but she has some access to the past now. She didn't tell a lot of people that she had amnesia in the first place, so some people don't know about the changes. She was a professional ice-skater and event coordinator in Arizona. She can be serious, but she likes to keep things fun and laid back. She’s optimistic and outgoing and generally well liked among those who know her. She had been going by Sarah Doe until she found out her real name, although she had one friend who called her Nightingale. On April 21st 2016 Seraphim had a baby girl she named Lainey.
In the last years Seraphim has no doubt made some friends. She’s got a bubbly personality and enjoys making friends with neighbors and customers. She is known to strike up many conversations on a walk, or if she sees someone needing help, or any such thing. She should have some friends near where she lives, some from work, either co-workers or customers, and just people she’s met in town or at bars.
She is very not looking for a relationship right now. Sera was engaged. It was a very important relationship in her life, but she doesn’t remember much of that. That was Cooper Tanaka. Relationships she has had in the last year haven’t been serious. She’s gone on a couple of dates, gone home with some men, flirted, been bought drinks, things of that nature. She has no problems using her friendliness in flirting, and likes sweet guys. She likes men who make their own decisions, and has a soft spot for guitars. Her relationship presently is complicated.
She is pretty nice. She doesn’t think she has any enemies, at least that she can remember. There are always people who don’t like you. If for some reason anyone is her enemy, she won’t worry too much about it. She is protective of her friends, but not vengeful of her enemies. She avoids conflict when able, and she does not wish ill on those who hurt her.
26 - Cashier at Bob’s / Musician in Pink Slip– Heterosexual – In a relationship
Blake moved to Lochland Grove November 2015. She was born in southern California, and spent the last decade of her childhood living in Nevada. In late 2014 Blake moved to NYC and started her second band, Pink Slip. After deciding that NYC was too expensive, and not wanting to have to depend on her bandmates, Blake moved to Lochland Grove. She lived with her two landlords, and her cat Leeloo. Blake is an outgoing, touchy, people pleaser. She likes getting along with everyone, and she’s a bit of a pushover. She formerly worked at August Whitmore in the cafeteria, but eventually lost that job. She got her job as a Cashier at Bob’s in the last few months. She still goes to New York regularly for gigs.
Blake is very friendly, but she doesn’t have as many friends as she does nice acquaintances. She is very bad at telling people “no.” She’s been put in bad situations and taken advantage of because she just wants to give people what they want. She tends to have friends her own age, but she gets along with some people of all age ranges. She is not very good at social cues, but she means well. She has a habit of touching people that she meets, possibly multiple times, mostly hair and clothing, sometimes facial hair.
Her romantic history is complicated, and she is currently in a relationship with a guy in town. She dated her first boyfriend for six years, and after that, had two brief relationships while she lived in New York. She has a tendency of being really hyper and needing some sort of release after performing, and she likes to flirt with most people when she is in a particularly good mood. She wouldn’t flirt with anyone while she isn’t single, but apparently who she chose to date came with an interesting reputation.
She can be oblivious. She will do what is asked of her, and let people boss her around. Her bandmates have to keep her on task to make sure she isn’t letting something else get in the way of their success with her. She wants everyone to get along. Perhaps the only reason that she would actively grow cold and dislike another person is if they were being rude to someone she cared for. It takes a whole lot for her to dislike someone, but if they very clearly dislike her, she will just try to give them space.
Lily/Sabrina: Ok so these two are contemporary locals. When Lily was a H.S. Senior and trying to blend with the crowd, Sabrina was a H.S. Freshman (I think? I know it's K-12, but I'm guessing the class rooms may be grouped by year or level) So there is a ton of possibilities for them. Lily did her share of baby sitting and may have picked up kids from Cupcakes to take home to baby sit. I can see Lily joining a 4H club in Lochland Grove, so maybe they could have both been in 4H. There could have been some sort of school scene somewhere that later turns into a re-acquaintance in another part of town=present day. Maybe Sabrina had some time out at Looseleaf and saw Lily there. Yeah, small town locals being all into each other's business things can happen :-D Let me know which one you see most and I'll make it happen.
Well, Lily was born July 1991, so she probably graduated in 2009(unless she started in the next school year, which would have made it 2010. If she graduated in 2010, then Sabrina would have been in 9th grade when Lily was in 12th, but otherwise they missed each other by a year. As far as picking kids up from Cupcakes, technically the business has only been open officially for…. This year? Maybe a few months longer. It was mostly something Sabrina fell into and that is why making it a business was newer. If Lily did any babysitting since then it could work. As for 4H, Sabrina was fairly busy, but I can see her being put in that. Maybe they had a wider age group, or Lily was supposed to work with some younger kids and could have met Sabrina from that? And if she did meet her, and Sabrina saw Lily during one of her rare times being alone, she would strike up a conversation. How’s that sound?
It is past 2 am where I am so I don't think I have the best plot ideas, but I wanted to post here anyway because I love you and I want a thread sometime in the future when you aren't busy with all your other threads. Haha. That being said I now offer up a few possible plots.
NINA&&IAN. She is an aspiring photographer and Nina models so, yeah? I think Nina would be more than willing to be a model if she wants to practice or something, and she could give her opinion and feedback on her photos too and somehow develop a friendship over that. Nina is nice too and loves on people a lot so I don't think it will be hard for them to be friends.
NINA&&URIAH. She has great respect for people who can string words together beautifully. And, well, Nina often finds herself with shy people so maybe we can try this out too. She wouldn't be one to judge about his past too or even his present, so she could be a confidante or just someone he can come and talk to--or just someone to hang out with.
NINA&&SABRINA She would admire Sabrina for being so responsible and for her skills at taking care of her siblings. Nina is fond of kids as well and would be more than willing to help look after Sabrina's siblings if the need ever arises. Sabrina also seems like a nice girl who could jive well with Nina so I am also thinking they can be good friends.
So those are my plots for some of your people. Let me know if you have ideas? Thanks!
Teagan and Regan - Well Regan has lived here her whole life and she's only a year younger than Teagan so I imagine when he moved here and started to go to school there's a pretty good chance that they would have ran into each other. He likes to camp so that would always be a big plus to Regan since she likes the outdoors. Depending on how well you think they could get along could depend on how close they would be
Your comment on Regan liking the outdoors just reminds me of Lily and Sabrina frolicking in the woods. He might even have flirted with her in high school. He is a sweet guy, and definitely likes making friends, so I can see him being fairly close to her.
Lars/Teagan: Lars needs friends and a Spanish tutor for his niece. So maybe this is one way they get to know each other and maybe Lars invites him to come to Poker night one night. (don't know how much he'll like cigars and brandy, but he is welcomed to the whole thang at the game room, or whatever he would like.) Maybe they can become friends that way....and then...have some sort of awkward moment if the whole Teagan used to flirt with Regan back in the day story is ever established. (you know me and dramatics lol)
Liliana/Teagan: I can totally see Lita being more attentive to Teagan as a friend after the drama at the charity ball. Definitely will turn into a school thread at some point or another. She turned out to feel kind of protective in a sisterly/motherly sort of way during that thread. She is turning more nurturing ever since Alice came along. So yeah, I can see Lita being someone Teagan can count on for any advice. Also his relationship stuff seemed so complex that she would find herself being more sensitive to him as someone that maybe is going through a complicated thing.
Lily/Sabrina: <3 really I'm coming back to it...my muses have been all over the place this weekend. And then I'm continuing with emails from the archives in the comms board....it shall continue to be cute.
Well, Teagan likes children, so he would be happy to tutor a child in Spanish. On top of that he likes to work for more money. He delivered pizzas for several months to earn extra money for wedding related things. He isn’t doing that now, but since he doesn’t have work during the summer, doing that would be a nice distraction. Especially next month when I guess Byron goes back to England. He isn’t one for cigars, but he has a lot of alcohol, and likes drinking some at home, so in moderation he would be fine with brandy and poker. Sounds fun. As far as Regan and awkwardness, if that does happen, Teagan will be nice about it, and remind him it was high school, but yeah, that sounds amusing.
Teagan can always use people to be more attentive to him. He’s generally a really happy and outgoing guy, so he loves people. He’s been in limbo for a while, and now that he is angsting pretty hard… he can use someone around being nice to him. He will probably make her some origami as a nice gesture when school starts up again, and might make some little origami animals for Alice.
Sabrina and Lily, I look forward to it. It does confuse me a bit at times, but Sabrina’s enjoying herself a lot, and I think its definitely setting them up for potentially being pretty close as adults. At least if they keep this up. Good luck with getting caught up, I need to do that too.
Frankie + Autumn So I think Frankie and Autumn need to at least be friends! She's a fairly regular at the strip club as she used to be a stripper before she moved to Lochland and enjoys the enviornment. She's a webcam model now, but she's been talking to Minnie about the possiblity of adding that to her business. Unless it would both Frankie that Autumn is good friends with her boss, haha.
Ianthe + Charlotte Charlotte has become a model between her own decisions and her husband's business. That being said, she's grown to love being in front of the camera. Perhaps she found out that Ianthe was an inspiring photographer and offered to model for her to work on her portfolio. Or Charlotte could have wanted some private portfolio work and reach out to Ianthe because she loves to see what skills inspiring artists have.
Seraphim + Ben Ben isn't much of one to cook for himself so he goes out to eat a lot. I think because of this there's a good chance that she and Ben would have become used seeing each other coming into Gertie's. I don't know how well they would really end up knowing each other, but I imagine they'd get along rather well even if they didn't see each other too much beyond when he went out to eat.
Teagan + Regan I support them being friends and him flirting with her. It will be interesting with her and Lars getting back together and the two of them being friends.
Samara Well. She could run into anyone around town. Its possible that she knew Sabrina's parents. They are a little over ten years older. Could have been Samara's babysitter. And in general Sabrina can be seen around town.
Teagan is probably going to be walking around at night. Looking both sketchy and twitchy. Not a good combination. Though it could easily lead to her talking to him about something. With her career there are a lot of things she might question about him right now, just as one option. Sorry that isn’t a lot to go off, I wasn’t quite sure what you were looking for, so I just threw that out there.
Frankie + Autumn Frankie has no problem with who anyone makes friends with. If Autumn is around a lot Frankie will recognize her and talk to her. She might even catch Frankie at the bar sometime after work. She usually doesn’t drink there, but sometimes she goes in on nights she isn’t working. Depending on who she is hanging out with. But she would probably like Autumn.
Ian + Charlotte Ian likes this idea. She has worked with some other models in the area. She prefers to take photos of landscapes and more for the sake of art and less the sake of advertising, but she does a lot of things to try and get more experience and contacts. She would be happy to work with Charlotte. A chance to work, and give someone something they want, and in town… yeah, she’d be pleased.
Seraphim + Ben Sera likes regulars. And strangers. She’s just pretty friendly overall. She would be there making smalltalk with him. Learn enough about him over time that she could ask him things and be involved. But not be weird about it. It’s a good basis, and if we for some reason wanted them to meet later, they would at least already know each other.
Teagan + Regan Well, Teagan being single now and being very out of it probably won’t hang out with people a lot. Though if he ran into Regan he would still be nice to her and happy for her. So, good history, and friends.
Frankie + Autumn I like that. I don't think they'd really be close unless Frankie said something that made Autumn think they should hang out. Since she used to be a stripper she knows how it can be to be badgered to do things by customers so she won't do that to one of the girls
Ian + Charlotte Charlotte is trying to find things to do with herself around Lochland because she's been here for so long that she needs things to do so she'd love working with Ian. Plus, she's been in the business a long time and she could mention that her husband has contacts, but they probably wouldn't be the people she would be interested in working for, haha.
Sera + Benjamin I love it. I'm sure if we wanted to we could think up a reason for them to run into each other outside of the diner, but even if we didn't do that anytime soon it'd be nice to know he had a familiar face he could go see when he goes out to dinner alone.
Teagan + Regan Yes! He better not let her know that he's feeling down though because if he does she's going to try to do whatever she can to get him to get out of his funk and cheer up because that's what friends are for!
