Title: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 16, 2019, 02:31:14 PM
I'm listening to the Umbrella Academy Soundtrack n the title of this is the song that's currently playing so.

I wanted to do just a....slice of life college aged rp. There isn't much to this except I'd like for all the characters to know one another already.
So I'm thinking they all lived on the same co-ed floor their freshman year and are now juniors? So 20-21 years old (or older if you feel so inclined, but they'd be in their third year of university)
All different majors, different backgrounds, Friends sitcom type of deal. Yup.

So uhhh if anyone is actually down I'll post a card.

Name: Alex Medina
Age: 21
Major: Biology with a minor in Conservation Biology
Appearance: Short, soft brown hair that's a bit longer on top than the sides. Naturally tan skin and warm brown eyes, with a small birth mark just under his right eye. He's rather tall and a bit lanky, but has sort of begun growing into himself finally.
Personality: He's extremely laid back and go with the flow, and is very uplifting of his friends. On the flip side, he tends to be rather hard on himself and sets high expectations.

Name: Samantha "Sam" Evans
Age: 21
Major: Computer Science
Appearance: Very straight dirty blonde hair, deep brown eyes, a very soft featured face, a curvy figure like size 16/18, 5'6 height wise
Personality: Smart, sarcastic, but sweet when she deems someone trust worthy. Self-conscious about her appearance always.
Background: Sam tends to let everyone else be the life of the party, choosing to purposely be a wallflower for observation purposes, but enjoying just getting to know a lot of people. She spent all of first year just saying "Hi" to everyone, but is now making friends and even testing the waters with relationships, though she's unsure how to make them last. Sam is very ahead in most of her glasses and could even finish halfway through her fourth year if she wanted, graduating early.

Name: Robyn Elizabeth Matthews
Age: 21
Major: nursing
Appearance: Strawberry-blonde hair that falls just past her shoulders; it’s extremely curly and thick, so she usually keeps it loosely tied back. She has Green-blue eyes. She is fairly tall and has an athletic build.
Background: Comes from an extremely dysfunctional family. Her mother suffered from drug and alcohol abuse before Robyn was even born, which continued all throughout Robyn’s childhood. Because of that (and other reasons , that Robyn never talks about) she’s been in and out of foster care from the age of 5.
She is the eldest of 12, though she doesn’t share a bio father with any of her siblings; Robyn isn’t even sure who her father is. She’s extremely protective of her brother’s and sisters as she would often have to step into a parental role when their mother  would get too drunk or high.
(I have more background but I’ll save that for the rp ;)
Personality: she is extremely extroverted and loves being around people. Despite everything she’s been through, is very sweet, caring and positive. However, she does have a bit of a temper and is fiercely protective of the people she cares for. Robyn is quite smart and hardworking as well as being athletic.
Other: Robyn is on the college volleyball team, with a big scholarship (which is the only way she could even afford college)

Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 17, 2019, 12:31:29 PM
Name: Teddington Ezra Rand
Age: 21
Major: Psychology
Appearance: Average height and quite lanky, he can often be found wearing baggy clothing that only further illustrates how scrawny he is. He has olive skin, dark eyes and short, messy, dark hair, and looks quite a bit younger than he is.
Personality: Teddi is incredibly quiet and reserved, and quite a bit of a loner. Many people believe that he's stuck up or antisocial, but the reality is he's extremely socially anxious and shy. As well, he was born fully deaf in one ear and it's clearly evident in his voice, which he's quite self conscious of.
Background: Teddi is a triplet, having a sister (Marigold) and an identical brother (Irving). He's always been one of a trio, and craves finding his own identity, though he doesn't know how. Also, he is quite embarrassed by his name and will generally go by Teddi, never telling people his real name.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 17, 2019, 04:30:35 PM
Okay I have two babies here and I'm not used to playing dudes so here we go :P


Name: Natalie Rae Finch
Age: 21
Major: Business Administration & Visual Art (double major)
Appearance: Mid-tone complexion, brown wavy hair, grey-green eyes, and wears glasses, but will usually swap them out for contacts. She's in good shape, but she's self conscious about her body since it did change after giving birth, and she now has stretch marks too (which she hides; she never wears bikinis anymore).
Personality: Natalie spent her early teens being reckless and out of control, and then spent her late teens fending for herself and sometimes only barely scraping by. She's a hard-worker, but given her bad habits, she tends to make bad decisions and can be reckless. That being said, she does genuinely want to do better (however this is sometimes more wishful thinking than an action plan), and wants someone that her daughter can be proud of one day.
Background: Natalie was born to well-off parents, and was an only child. Her parents, ever-busy, often weren't around, and this only worsened when they got divorced right before her 10th birthday. At that point, she started acting out and getting in trouble, but was never really dealt with. A result of her reckless behaviour, she ended up pregnant at 15. Her parents, unaccepting, gave her an ultimatum: abort the baby or get out. She left. She ended up giving birth to a little girl, who she named Aria, but after a couple weeks of fending for herself and trying to care for the child, she ended up putting the child up for adoption, feeling it was the only way to give Aria her best chance. The baby was adopted by a family who agreed to an open adoption, meaning that Natalie would still be able to see her. Natalie continued to bounce around a lot, but managed to get into college, and has been working towards a degree ever since. She's good friends with Clayton Vargas, a fellow student in the visual arts program.



Name: Clayton Louis Vargas
Age: 22
Major: Visual Arts
Appearance: Clayton has tan skin, black hair, and dark eyes. He is reasonably tall (thinking around 5'10"-11"), and combined with frequent usage of eyeliner, nail polish, and jewelry, he stands out a fair bit.
Personality: Clayton is a flirt, and he loves to tease people and make situations uncomfortable. He's a bit of a prankster, and keeps an actual resume of all the pranks he's been part of. He can seem a bit flaky and non-committal because of this, but in his heart, he is someone who loves very deeply, and will go out of his way to make sure that the people he cares about are cared for.
Background: Clayton is the oldest of three siblings, all raised by their single mother, Margarita, and he loves them all dearly. He is openly bisexual (something he was teased relentlessly about in high school) and is known to flirt with anything that moves, basically. He took a year off between high school and university to work and "find himself", which essentially meant that he experimented with a lot of things. He is good friends with Natalie Finch, who he met in first year in their shared drawing class.

Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: GreyCaboose on March 18, 2019, 02:42:04 PM
Name: Anatole Cyril Syvatoslavovich, III
Age: 21
Major: English
Appearance: Anatole has sad, dark brown eyes and shaggy red hair, along with freckles dusting his cheeks and pointy nose. He's around 5'6" and has a bit of a chubby figure. He always looks incredibly tired.
Personality: Anatole is a trusting, friendly man, who works hard and puts his faith in his friends. He doesn't enjoy confrontation, which can lead him to be pushed around, and he has a soft spot for small, fluffy animals. He loves the 'Great American classics' of the world, ie 'The Great Gatsby', 'The Color Purple', 'Atlas Shrugged', and dreams of one day writing his own novel. He's a bit of a dense fellow, often misunderstanding people's body language or tone. Also, he hates his full name, so just call him Anatole.
Background: Born to an incredibly large family, Anatole had three brothers and four sisters (two sets of twins very early in the parents' marriage, and then three more later on,) by the time he was born. Four of his siblings were already on the verge of graduating high school when Anatole was born, so he felt a bit of a disconnect from many of his siblings due to the massive age gap. By the time he was 10, he was already an uncle. Having already worn themselves out from the previous seven children, Anatole was allowed to mostly be an independent child, learning how to do many things like study, cook, and do laundry by himself. And when he wasn't taking care of himself, Anatole was reading. For much of his life, Anatole's best friends were the books he found in the library or in his parents' bookshelf. And now that he's older, he's starting to realize that maybe that lack of social gracing is starting to be a bit of a drag for him.

Name: Grace Myong
Age: 22
Major: History
Appearance: Grace is a tall woman with broad shoulders and an athletic build, standing at 6 feet. She has big hazel eyes and a flat nose, as well as long black hair kept in a french braid.
Personality: Grace is a smart, easygoing gal, who isn't incredibly motivated or concerned about being the best. She wants to do what she enjoys, and she can be very blunt about whether or not she thinks something is cool or fun. To her, history is fun, and that's why she's working to get a career in it. Anyone who isn't pursuing what they love is stupid, to her, and she'll tell them that. She's very honest, loves junk food, and also loves her pet turtle, Cheonsa.
Background: Grace was born to hardworking Korean immigrants who wanted their daughter to succeed in life and live happily in America, with lots friends and a good job. Fortunately for them, they never saw the 'tiger parent' route as right, so they instead supported Grace and gave her every opportunity she wanted to succeed, which resulted in Grace living a happy life. Unfortunately, her parents' financial situation was bad, so getting into college was going to be difficult. With a part-time job at a gas station, a few scholarships for academics and golf, and a mildly frightening loan taken out, Grace is now at college and living her best life - Or as close to it as she can get.

How are these two?

Name: Maria Rodriguez
Age: 22
Major: Marketing
Appearance: tight dark curls, tan complexion, about 5”5’, warm brown eyes and a curvy sillouhette.
Personality: Bright and bubbly, Maria loves to get into as many shenanigans as she can. Breaking some of her friends out of their shells is her biggest goal.
Background: She was orphaned at a young age and was moved around a lot as a kid but settled into a family who adopted her when she was 14. She knew the dark sides of the foster system and so has an extra appreciation for all of the good things in her life. She has 2 older brothers through her adoptive parents who helped instil her troublemaking spirit.

Name: Cody Vasquez
Age: 22
Major: Chemistry
Appearance: Cody has tan skin, dark brown hair, and brown eyes. He's 5'11", but puts 6' in his Tinder bio, and is a muscular dude.
Personality: He gives me "dudes just wanna have fun", party boy kinda vibes, but we'll see. I really don't know, lol.
Background: Cody was born and raised in an inner city condo, and his life was relatively normal until he witnessed his father murdering his mother at the age of four. After his father's trial and conviction, Cody was bounced from foster home to foster home until he eventually aged out of the system. He managed to get into college with the help of his last foster family, whom he still visits on breaks and holidays.

Lmao love it blue.

Tru, Mara. I probs will. Anyway, I'm gonna start and if someone hasn't posted yet they can just jump in asap, it shouldn't be too hard!

Alex had sent out a group message a few days ago saying they ought to all try to have a get together, inviting everyone to his house. Now that it was the day of he was getting stuff ready. Which mostly meant making sure the drinks and snacks were stocked, and that he had the phone number of the pizza place ready to call because he was almost positive they'd want pizza eventually. His roommates had also pretty much cleared out, which was cool of them. Granted, he hadn't asked them to but it was still convenient.

Sam was in her room on her bed, laying on her back with her legs up against the wall, holding the book over her head as she finished up reading her textbook. She was almost finished and knew she should get up and do one thing with her face and hair before heading to Alex’s. She reached over and grabbed her phone, texting him quickly to make sure they were still planning to get together.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 19, 2019, 12:08:30 PM
Natalie and Clayton were putting away their sketchbooks. They had been called to a last-minute live drawing session; it was mandatory to attend one every few weeks, but the schedule was so irregular that it was difficult. Luckily, this one had fit in right perfectly, and didn't interfere with the plans they had that evening: a nice little reunion among friends.

"Head over now?" Natalie asked.

"Sure," Clayton replied.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 19, 2019, 12:28:18 PM
Robyn was exhausted after a long and frustrating lab; she really wanted to just crash for the night rather than going to Alex's but it would be nice to see everyone, unwind. She entered her room and tossed her bag on her bed before rifling through her drawers to find something to wear.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 19, 2019, 12:31:17 PM
Teddi had stared at the message for a good long while. Did he want to go? Did Alex even want him to go, or was he just being nice? And what about the others he'd invited? He took a deep breath, texting back a confirmation that he would, in fact, be attending the party. He couldn't let himself slip back into isolation. He had to come out of his comfort zone, if only for a half hour.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 19, 2019, 12:41:23 PM
Natalie and Clayton headed out, stopping at the store on their way over to Alex's house. They bought some chips and Coke, figuring that it was nice to bring something. As they neared the house, Natalie's phone buzzed. She pulled it out only to see a text from her daughter's adoptive parents alongside a photo of her daughter holding a tooth. She stopped walking, grabbing Clayton's arm. "Aria lost her first tooth!" It was so weirdly exciting. She couldn't wait to tell everyone at the party, not that anyone would probably really care that much. It was just a tooth after all.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 19, 2019, 01:34:44 PM
Alex quickly sent Sam a text back to assure her the get together was still on. He then responded with a thumbs up to Teddi, excited that so many of them would actually be coming over.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: GreyCaboose on March 19, 2019, 01:49:42 PM
Anatole was excited about getting to hang out - He was having some difficulties writing a dialogue scene for one of his short stories, and maybe some real interaction could help! He packed a bag of books, some money just in case something happened, pepperspray....just in case something happened, and finally some snacks that he was sure only he would like. He didn't know anyone else who liked kettle cooked dill pickle chips or peach soda, so maybe that meant more for him! He slung his bag over his shoulder and left his dorm to head for Alex's house.

Grace stepped out of the boba tea shop she'd stopped into and took out her phone, sending the group chat a quick text message to both confirm her oncoming presence and warn them of it.
'comin 2 house soon hide ur weed lololol im bringing my turtle and demanding sum decent food so be ready nerds'
That was a friendly, lowkey message, right? She smirked and put her phone in her pocket again before heading down the sidewalk to get to this gathering.
She heard a familiar voice a bit behind her...something about a tooth? She turned and noticed Natalie and Clayton, their attention seemingly caught by a phone. Cool. They could walk up together!
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Emma-la on March 19, 2019, 02:45:17 PM
Maria has spent an inordinate amount of time putting together an outfit that was cute but said that she didn’t care and had just thrown it on. It was a very difficult line to toe. Finally, when she was ready to go, she sent Alex a text. On my way over! How much booze should I bring and do you need anything?
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 19, 2019, 03:01:11 PM
Sam sent three okay hand emojis and then put her phone down and finished reading her book before sliding her legs down the wall and sitting up in bed. She got up and went over to her closet, rifling through until she found a long shirt with birds and flowers all over it and a pair of high waisted jeans. She put them on and at first attempted to tuck the shirt in, but after a long time of staring at herself in the mirror, she decided it showed too much back fat and sort of just looked like a muffin top and who was she kidding, she shouldn't even go. She sat back on the bed as she untucked her shirt and considered telling Alex that she couldn't make it. She reached for her phone and sighed, "They'd barely notice if I didn't show up." she told herself.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 19, 2019, 03:14:03 PM
Almost all Robyn's clothes were strewn across her bed and the floor by the time she found something satisfactory to wear. Her roommate would be furious with the mess, but Robyn could deal with that confrontation later. She pulled a pair of dark-wash jeans, light blue sweater, and pulled her hair up into a messy bun with her favourite scrunchie before heading off. She stopped by Sam's room on the way, knocking on the door, "Hey SAM! you better be coming!" she called out, knowing the girl was probably talking herself out of going.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 19, 2019, 03:17:00 PM
Sam jumped at the knock at the door and rolled her eyes, but couldn't help the smile on her face. She grabbed her purse as she went to the door, pulling her hair half up before opening it and shaking her head at Robyn, "You're gonna piss someone off being loud like that."
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 19, 2019, 03:26:48 PM
Robyn smirked, "Wouldn't be the first time," she said with a shrug. Robyn looked her friend over and smiled approvingly, "You look so cute! I should have tried a little harder I guess," she said, looking down at her ripped jeans and worn sweater. The truth was, nothing she owned was of very good quality.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 19, 2019, 03:31:26 PM
"I find a cute outfit I like and then wear it to death," Sam joked and then looked Robyn over, chuckling, "I think it's charming. It's just who you are at this point. If you wore anything flashy or new, I think I wouldn't even recognize you." she told her friend as they headed down the hall, "Are we supposed to bring something?"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 19, 2019, 04:01:56 PM
Robyn couldn't help but smile, grateful for Sam's acceptance. She often felt like she did not belong, her wardrobe just another example. "I sure hope not," Robyn replied, "I'm sure he's got it all covered"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 19, 2019, 04:04:58 PM
Natalie and Clayton arrived at Alex's place. Natalie held onto the food and drinks while Clayton knocked on the door.

"Darling, we're here!" he called obnoxiously.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 19, 2019, 04:33:37 PM
I've got everything we need, but if you want to bring anything be my guest Alex texted Maria back before going to open the door.
"Hey, guys," he said with a grin and stepped aside to let Natalie and Clayton in.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 19, 2019, 04:36:38 PM
“Hello lovely,” Clayton said as he walked in, opting to play European now and give Alex a double cheek kiss.

“We brought snacks,” Natalie stated, holding up the goods.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 19, 2019, 10:51:41 PM
Sam chuckled at Robyn as they walked along towards their common destination. She sighed a little and then looked over at her friend, "Have you heard if Alex is seeing anyone now?"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 20, 2019, 01:45:15 AM
Robyn glanced at Sam, eye brow raised, “Alex? I don’t think so, at least I haven’t heard anything,” she Robyn told her. She was quiet a moment as they approached alex’s Place, “you like him Sammy?” She inquired.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 20, 2019, 01:49:53 AM
Sam scoffed a laugh quickly and then looked away, "Listen, it's not important or like he would even think about me in that kind of way anyway, I just..." Sam rolled her eyes, "I'm in my twenties and I still get these tween crushes. It's so gross. He's just sweet and considerate, but yeah, I don't think he likes me." Sam stopped and looked up at the house, "Besides there are a million girls better than me for him."

“Hello lovely,” Clayton said as he walked in, opting to play European now and give Alex a double cheek kiss.

“We brought snacks,” Natalie stated, holding up the goods.

Alex chuckled and patted Clayton's arm before turning to Natalie. "Oh great! Thanks, you can just bring them over here," he said as he stepped back to let them. He walked over to the kitchen counter where he'd laid out snacks, beer, and sodas already.

Grace arrived at the house shortly after Natalie and Clayton went in, knocking on the door rather harshly before waiting .05 seconds and knocking again rather impatiently.
"It's the cops, hide the drugs!" She called out.

Anatole was looking down at his phone, debating whether or not to send a message saying he was close to the house. Would that be repetitive? He frowned a bit, but didn't stop walking to think - Until he ran into one of the two women standing in front of Alex's house.
"Ah!" He yelped, stumbling and dropping his phone. "O-Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry!"

Sam grunted as the guy ran into her and held her arm. She looked at the guy and rolled her eyes, "Watch out Anatole," she said, but not meanly, just as a warning. She moved aside, "Important texts ya got there?"

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 02:37:18 AM
Alex rolled his eyes and went to open the door. "Hey, Grace," he said with a warm smile. He decided to prop the door open so people could just come inside, since it seemed most people would be arriving around now.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: GreyCaboose on March 20, 2019, 02:48:40 AM
Anatole felt a bit guilty seeing Sam roll her eyes and warn him about his clumsiness. "Ah...I...Yeah...Not really." He laughed nervously in response to her question. "I'm sorry, Sam. I...need to really watch more where I'm going, huh? Are you okay?"

Alex rolled his eyes and went to open the door. "Hey, Grace," he said with a warm smile. He decided to prop the door open so people could just come inside, since it seemed most people would be arriving around now.

"Heeeey, Alex!" Grace smiled and held out her arms to give him a big hug. Personal space wasn't an issue for Grace, it seemed. "Glad I made it, right? You got any good food around here?"

Robyn rolled her eyes at Sam's comment; she wished Sam would have more confidence in herself. Any guy would be lucky to be with her; why couldn't she just see that? When Alex opened the door she flashed a smiled and nudged Sam forward, "hey Alex," she said on the way inside.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 03:17:56 AM
"Of course I am," Alex said to Grace and then pointed at the counter behind him. "Snacks galore!" He turned and then grinned as the others walked up.
"Hey Robyn! Sam, Anatole," he greeted them all cheerfully. "Snacks and drinks on the counter."
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 20, 2019, 03:25:10 AM
Clayton watched as the others entered. “Greetings ladies,” he said playfully, and then turned to Anatole, “and gentleman,” he added in an equal tone.

Natalie returned from putting the snacks on the table. “Good enough for an army Alex, well done!”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 20, 2019, 04:10:14 AM
“I’m fine Anatole. Just a little jostled, not to say a couple drinks wasn’t gonna do that to me anyway,” she joked with him. She then felt Sam nudge her into the house and her chest felt that familiar rapid flutter of her heart when she heard Alex say her name. But, he said everyone’s name. She told herself to calm the fell down and just waved casually at him before crossing her arms over her chest and stepping to the room, which was starting to fill up. She absently looked around for a place to possibly escape to.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: GreyCaboose on March 20, 2019, 04:21:35 AM
Anatole nodded, still feeling worried about upsetting Sam but figuring it'd be better to leave her alone.
He smiled and waved at Alex in a greeting back. "Hello, Alex! Thanks for inviting me!"
He laughed nervously at Clayton's playful greeting. "Hello to you too, ah, Clayton!" Anatole honestly wasn't used to being referred to as 'gentleman'. Was it flirty or just polite? With no subtext to refer to, Anatole felt clueless as to how to properly respond to it. Instead, he just nodded and shied away from the rest of the crowd.

Grace returned from the kitchen holding a bag of chips she seemed to have claimed for herself. "What Natalie said - The army thing! Except the army is me. It's good enough...for me." She laughed to herself. "So, what's the agenda for this party, huh? Watching movies? Truth or dare?"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 04:43:22 AM
Alex walked over to the TV and sat down, using the game console to pull up Spotify. He started a playlist and then turned towards the others. "So I've got Cards Against Humanity, if you guys want to play that in a bit. I think a few more people might be on their way."

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 20, 2019, 05:13:14 AM
Teddi approached the house, looking very much like he had just rolled out of bed (which he had). He knocked on the door, steeling himself in preparation for the upcoming social interactions he would have to face.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 20, 2019, 06:25:52 AM
Robyn helped herself to a drink and poured one for Sam aswell, "that sounds like a great idea," Robyn said to Alex as she passed Sam the drink.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Emma-la on March 20, 2019, 06:31:49 AM
Maria arrived behind and clapped him on the back with her free hand - her other was occupied carrying a rather large bag filled with varying types of alcohol. “It’s a party, I’m sure Alex won’t mind if we let ourselves in. She pushed into the place. “The party is here!” She announced.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 20, 2019, 06:32:23 AM
"Cards Against Humanity sounds phenomenal," Clayton replied, plopping down in a seat. "Love, you wouldn't mind passing me one too?" he asked Robyn.

Natalie rolled her eyes at Clayton, and then pulled her phone out. "Okay, not that any of you probably care, but Aria lost her first tooth this morning," she said, showing the picture she had gotten.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 20, 2019, 06:38:27 AM
"You have feet Clayton," she said teasingly, with an edge of irritation. She poured him a drink and brought it over, "There," she said with a roll of her eyes before turning her attention to Natalie, face lighting up, "oooh that's so exciting Natalie!" she enthused, going over to see the picture, "she is so precious," Robyn gushed
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 20, 2019, 06:44:13 AM
“That’s so cute!” Sam said and took the drink from Robyn, glad to have her friend close to her side. She watched Alex cross the room and then took a drink before speaking, “I’m game, though I’m usually pretty terrible”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 06:50:13 AM
"Hi Maria, hi Teddi," Alex stood up when they came in. "It's kind of wild to have everyone all together, I'm super excited you all could come."
He stood up and went over to one of the cabinets to pull the box out. "We don't have to play it yet, just once we all get settled and catch up."
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 20, 2019, 07:02:41 AM
Clayton winked at Robyn. "Thanks," he said.

Natalie grinned at the praise her daughter was getting. She turned to Alex. "Sounds good to me!"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 20, 2019, 07:16:02 AM
"H-hey," Teddi stammered to Alex. He was late, as usual, and it looked like everyone had already started to group off together. He wrung his hands together in the sleeves of his hoodie, though trying his best to smile and not look completely miserable.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 09:26:45 AM
"Teddi, my guy, how've you been?" Alex asked him, standing over to the side to talk to him.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Emma-la on March 20, 2019, 10:12:19 AM
Maria put some of her drinks in the fridge and came back out to where the party was, noticing how uncomfortable Teddi looked. She wordlessly offered him a beer and a friendly smile.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 20, 2019, 10:45:20 AM
Sam sipped more of her drink and leaned back against the wall but then looked down and noticed her stomach sticking out a little so she stood up straighter and chewed on her lip. She saw Teddi come in and while she didn’t cross to him, she did wave and give him a smile.

Natalie rolled her eyes at Clayton, and then pulled her phone out. "Okay, not that any of you probably care, but Aria lost her first tooth this morning," she said, showing the picture she had gotten.

"Ah, I've never played the game." Anatole squeaked before a smile crossed his face. Natalie's daughter looked so precious! "Aww, she looks super adorable!" He exclaimed.

Grace rolled her eyes. "Right, teeth. Exciting." She laughed to herself quietly before grabbing a bottle of some kind of strawberry-flavired liquor. She glanced over to Teddi and grinned. "Hey, Ted, what's up my guy?" She asked loudly.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 20, 2019, 11:32:26 AM
"I-i've been good," Teddi stammered, clutching the beer Maria had given with clammy hands. He turned to Grace, trying his best to come off as not completely panicky. "Nothing, ah, nothing much. What's up with you?"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 11:45:28 AM
Alex grinned. "Take it easy, man," he said cheerfully before turning to go say hi to some of the others.
"Hey Sam! How've you been?" He asked, standing nearby the wall she was leaning against.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 20, 2019, 11:51:56 AM
Robyn was going to join sam but when she saw Alex talking to her she grinned and kept her distance so the two could talk. He gave her friend a thumbs up and a wink before flopping down a chair by Clayton.

"I-i've been good," Teddi stammered, clutching the beer Maria had given with clammy hands. He turned to Grace, trying his best to come off as not completely panicky. "Nothing, ah, nothing much. What's up with you?"

Grace laughed at Teddi's nervous response.
"I'm doing fine!" She responded. "What's got you all shaken, Teddi? You seem spooked."

Anatole simply sat against a wall, taking a peach soda out of his bag and drinking it in hopes that his seeming preoccupied would ward off unwanted conversation.
Title: Re: So Happy Together

Maria roamed off the sit near the game, sipping her own beer and grinning. “Is that your daughter?” She asked Natalie, leaning closer and cooing. “She’s adorable!”

Sam stood up straight and felt a small flush to her cheeks, “Oh, good good. Might graduate early next year, been working hard on school,” she said and pushed her hair behind her ear, “And you?”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 20, 2019, 01:14:31 PM
Natalie nodded. "Yeah, that's Aria," she said. "She's 5 now."

Clayton took note of Robyn sitting by him. "How's today been treating you?" he asked.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 01:26:02 PM
"Yeah, school's been keeping me busy. But that's great about graduating eatly! Any ideas on what you'll do after?" He asked, crossing his arms over his chest as he leaned his shoulder against the wall.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 20, 2019, 01:58:50 PM
Sam shook her head and then shrugged, “I’m not sure, but I’ll keep you notified,” she said and drank some more. She played with a curl of her hair and then looked at him, “What about you? What are you doing after school?”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: GreyCaboose on March 20, 2019, 02:21:42 PM
"Uh," Teddi mumbled, glancing around the room. "People."

"Hm." Grace nodded wisely. "Well, you wanna know a cure for people poisoning?"
She reached into her hoodie pocket and pulled out her secret weapon...her pet turtle, which she chose to bring due to his small, carryable size and the fact that honestly, parties never have enough cute animals. "Holding a turtle."

“Ha, unless I want to teach, I don’t really need any further degrees, but I might end up working for the school as an intern,” Sam said and shrugged, “I like it here. It’s not—-home”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 03:33:00 PM
Alex smiled a bit and nodded, glancing down. "I could understand that. But, I mean, you could really go anywhere you wanted, you know?"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 20, 2019, 03:47:25 PM
Sam looked at Alex and noticed he was glancing away and raised an eyebrow. “I mean, right. I could. I could really do programming from anywhere,” She told him and tilted her head, “Are you going to go into some kind of greenhouse work?”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 20, 2019, 04:30:36 PM
"Hellish would be an understatement," Robyn replied, "Third year is literally going to kill me," she groaned before sipping a bit more of her drink. Robyn glanced over at Sam and Alex briefly, smiling to herself. "So Clayton, how is third year treating you?" she asked.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 20, 2019, 05:21:53 PM
"Greenhouse? Probably not. I kind of was thinking the parks service," he said. "Or maybe something marine based?"

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 01:20:31 AM
Sam got bright eyed, “Oh that sounds like so much fun. You’ll be the one going places!” She said, excited for him. She blushed a little and tamed herself, taking a drink, clearing her throat, “Did you want a drink or something?”

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 21, 2019, 01:32:11 AM
Alex smiled at her enthusiasm before looking down at his hands. "Oh, yeah, but I'll go grab it. I kinda just want a soda," he said. He pushed himself off the wall and walked over to the counter to pour some into a cup.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: Mara-la on March 21, 2019, 01:36:02 AM
Clayton shrugged. “Third year has been the most relaxed, I’ve found. Everyone’s sort of settled in their pattern and classes. I’m also realizing now how awkward first years are... can’t flirt with the girls without them going full high school on me, can’t flirt with the guys without them getting self conscious... god it makes me feel so old.”
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 01:42:05 AM
Sam looked at him, her brows coming together before she watched him walk back to the counter. She chewed on the inside of her cheek and suddenly felt awkward. She didn’t want to follow him around his own house and seem clingy. Sam just stayed in her spot and put her arms around her. Alex has a lot of people here. He can’t just spend all night talking to you all down. Calm down. You didn’t do anything wrong. Relax
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 21, 2019, 03:58:25 AM
Alex took a sip and then walked back over to Sam. "Sorry, did you want anything?" He asked, lifting his eyebrows worriedly.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 04:10:43 AM
Sam lifted her cup and gave him a small smile, "I've got one," she then turned to him a little bit and swallowed, "So, are you still seeing that girl? I think I remember you went on a date sometime over the summer." she said, trying to be as casually as possible before sipping her drink.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 21, 2019, 04:20:26 AM
"Oh, nah, it didn't work out. She got back together with her ex like right after." He rolled his eyes but then smiled. "It's no biggie though, I dunno if I really have time for dating, you know?"
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 04:24:45 AM
"Oh, that's really awful of her. Being someone's rebound is never fun," Sam said, but then found her eyes staring into her drink, gripping it a little harder when he said he wasn't looking to date. She nodded quietly before looking up at him with her lips pressed together tightly for a moment. She then breathed out, "Yeah, school is a lot. It can be better to just focus your attention on one thing instead of be divided," she said. She then cleared her throat.

Post by: Eraisuithiel on March 21, 2019, 04:41:47 AM
Teddi's eyes widened and he took a step back as if she had just pulled something illegal or dangerous out of her pocket. "Where-how- a turtle?" Honestly it was the last thing he'd expected anyone to bring to a party. But, then again, he hadn't been to many parties.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 21, 2019, 06:00:18 AM

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 06:15:22 AM
Sam finished her drink while she listened to him and nodded, “I’m surprised you got us all together here,” she joked with a half smile, “But I’m glad you did. I always like seeing everyone together and I like spending time with you.” She then shook her cup gently, “Im gonna go get some more” she said and started to step away, glancing over at Robyn before going to the drinks.

Robyn snorted and shook her head, "You art students have it easy," she said, honestly  a little jealous; she had a full and difficult course load on top of volleyball and work. She rolled her eyes at his comment about the first years before glancing over at Sam, "Those poor, innocent freshmen," Robyn joked as she got up and casually walked over to fill up her drink. She nudged Sam with her elbow, "Well?? tell me everything" she whispered

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 06:38:01 AM
Sam poured some soda in her cup, but then at least two shots worth of liquor in too. She shook her head, “Nothing to talk about. He is really busy. Doesn’t have time for a relationship, you know?” she said why quietly and shrugged, “And he’s not wrong. I mean, if I work just a little harder, I can be done next semester and then I can go anywhere I want “

“I’d like to see you try to create an 8 canvas modern Dali-esque piece in less than a week, see if you call it easy then,” Clayton called after her, only partially joking. He took a sip of his drink before swinging himself up into a standing position. He made his way over to Alex. “So, what inspired you to bring us together tonight?”



Natalie spotted the turtle and made her way over. “Hey guys,” she said. “Why... do you have a turtle?” She wasn’t judging though, in fact, she was smiling, amused.

Post by: |ĸιrα| on March 21, 2019, 07:22:27 AM
Alex watched Sam with a furrowed brow, pretty confused now. He sipped his drink and then looked up as Clayton came over. "Oh, I just missed you guys I guess. It's been a long time since the gang's been together." He cracked a grin.

Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 21, 2019, 09:10:25 AM
Robyn could understand that reasoning; she was far too busy to even entertain a relationship. "Alright, I get that but what if he's just saying that because he hasn't found the right girl yet or he made up an excuse because he's embarrassed that he's not in a relationship," Robyn said as she snuck a glance over at Alex.

Sam just groaned and shook her head, waving her hand at Robyn to stop her, “It’s whatever. You know what, it doesn’t—doesn’t matter. If he cares, he say something and if I’m still single then, which given my track record, is pretty likely, I’ll give it a shot, but I can’t obsess over it. I’ll just get miserable and make up a million reasons why I’m the worst” she said downed half her drink before adding more of the strawberry flavored liquor she’d seen someone pouring earlier.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 21, 2019, 12:05:42 PM
Robyn watched Sam refill her glass and shook her head, "Easy now," she said while filling her own cup with water, "I can tell you right now that you are not the worst. Any guy who can't see that if not worth it," Robyn said firmly.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 12:22:28 PM
“Very kindly put,” Sam teased and then chuckled, “Don’t worry Mom, I’ll dring water inbetween and won’t let anyone else hold my drink.” She stuck her tongue out at Robyn and then sighed, looking back over at Alex, “Dammit and now he’s over there” she said and shook her head, taking another sip from her cup.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: kristina-la on March 21, 2019, 12:56:41 PM
Robyn chuckled, "You know I can't help myself Sammy," she said then looked over at Alex and the others, "Come on, let's join them and just have some fun," she encouraged.

Post by: MercyResurrected on March 21, 2019, 12:59:49 PM
“Fine, but only because you’re the best,” Sam told her and patted her cheek, “Youre the actual best Robyn. I can’t wait for someone incredible to snatch you away” she told her before walking over to the living room and sliding into a corner of the couch.

Teddi's eyes widened and he took a step back as if she had just pulled something illegal or dangerous out of her pocket. "Where-how- a turtle?" Honestly it was the last thing he'd expected anyone to bring to a party. But, then again, he hadn't been to many parties.

"Technically a tortoise, but honestly I don't care much about names." Grace shrugged. "He's my buddy. You wanna hold him? Turtles don't exactly judge people, so I find they can make for good anxiety relievers."

Natalie spotted the turtle and made her way over. “Hey guys,” she said. “Why... do you have a turtle?” She wasn’t judging though, in fact, she was smiling, amused.

"Tortoise." Grace smiled back at Natalie. "And I take him everywhere. I like to let him see the world and stuff. Why? You got a thing against turtles?" There wasn't malice in her voice, she was mostly joking along.

Alex watched Sam with a furrowed brow, pretty confused now. He sipped his drink and then looked up as Clayton came over. "Oh, I just missed you guys I guess. It's been a long time since the gang's been together." He cracked a grin.

Anatole piped up. "Yeah, I guess with...exams and such it's hard to keep up with friends." He figured. "It's good we're still in touch and all, though." He sat down on the couch nearest to him and drank his soda in hopes of looking...not as nervous as usual. "And it's nice that no drama among us has really broken out, you know? All the heartbreak and angst you see in shows and books really doesn't translate over to real life, huh? Or...maybe it does, and I just have a boring life, heh." He silently cursed himself for getting weird and rambly. Lame, Anatole! Real lame!

Post by: Mara-la on March 21, 2019, 02:15:10 PM
Natalie grinned. "He's cute," she said. "He must feel like a real world explorer."

--

Clayton nodded. "And here I was thinking that maybe you wanted a big orgy," he said in a serious voice, but then he grinned because he couldn't take himself seriously at all. "Though, five on five, may be an interesting time," he added jokingly, looking around the room at everyone.
Title: Re: So Happy Together
Post by: GreyCaboose on March 21, 2019, 02:20:10 PM
Grace nodded, glad that this party seemed to be turtle friendly. "He totally does." She responded. "And all he needs is lettuce and warmth, and that's a super low-key lifestyle, you know? I wish real life was that easy."

A blush covered Anatole's face when Clayton mentioned....an orgy??
"Aha, yeah, maybe not with me." He grinned nervously. "Well - Not that I don't like you all, or want to - I mean I don't want to! But not in a bad way! I just - You know - I've never even - I...Oh, dear... What I mean is that - Well, I, I'm not orgy material, you know? Wow, I'm so sorry, guys." Anatole bit his lip nervously. Wow, he was a loser.

Sam raised an eyebrow, overhearing the conversation about an orgy and chucked to herself as she chewed on lip, swirling her drink in her cup. That was a crazy idea. One she would never ever be down for. It was sort of funny how obvious Antanole was about it though.

Alex moved away and went over to get more of something to drink. He looked around the room and smiled a bit to himself, happy to have everyone there.

(Because I don't want Clare's RP to just die :P )

Sam watched Alex go back to the drinks and looked at her own drink and wrinkled her nose. She could either sit here and be sorry over not even getting rejected, or she could actually find out if he would take a chance on her. She got up from the couch and went over to the drinks, putting her cup down and looked at Alex, opening her mouth to speak, but then-- losing the words. "I---"

(Lmao ty. It be like that sometimes.)

"Oh, did you want some more?" Alex asked, looking at the cup and then at Sam. "What were you drinking?" He turned away to grab some of the liquor.

"Oh, no, I don't need more to drink," Sam said quickly, "I wanted to know if you would have time to go out with me some--time," she said and realized how dumb she sounded as it rounded out. She grit her teeth as she waited for a response.

Robyn, who had joined the others on the couch was watching Sam and Alex's exchange with a small smile; she was proud of her friend for going for it.

Alex stopped moving the drinks around and looked up at Sam, confused for a split second. "Well sure, yeah, I have time. When were you thinking?"

Sam looked at Alex and raised her eyebrows, surprised and now trying to come up with an answer, "Well, I can always do Thursday nights and Tuesdays I don't have class all day, but I work at the tutor center for two hours between 3 and 5." she then paused, "Or I could just help you clean up after the party tonight."

"Oh, you don't really have to stay. That won't be much fun," he shrugged. "But yeah, I work Monday, Wednesday, Friday, but Tuesday sounds fine."

Sam looked at him and nodded, “Sure. Tuesday. I could come up with something by then,” she said and then took a big sip from her drink. Why was that so easy? He’s just said he didn’t have time to date. Wait, did he not know it was a date? She put her cup down, “Can I have some water?”

"Sure thing!" He went over to his fridge and pulled out a pitcher. "I don't really trust the tap water here," he explained as he poured some into a cup for her.

“Thank you,” Sam told him as she took the cup and crinkled her nose, “Still that strawberry liquor aftertaste,” she teased and looked around at the party, “Its so nice of you to open your home to us. Where are your roommates?”

"Your guess is as good as mine. I think one of them's at his girlfriends house, the others...who knows. We usually don't see each other here much, opposite schedules and all that." He leaned against the counter and sipped his own drink. "Where are you living this year?"

“Still is the dorm. Down the hall from Robyn actually. I almost didn’t come tonight, but she made sure to bully me out of my room,” Sam said and played with her shirt, adjusting it a bit.

"Oh, nice! That's pretty convenient. I kinda miss the dorms, or at least the food." Alex sighed wistfully. "But, anyway, I'm really glad she convinced you to come. Wouldn't be the same otherwise."

Sam smiled at him and nodded before smiling over at Robyn, "She is pretty much the best." she then played with a piece of her hair, "Are you enjoying your classes?"
