Just looking for a simple slice-of-life role play to help develop characters. Something sweet and fluffy and most likely angsty.
I’m thinking of a storyline along these points:
Halton Jay Brown has only been a part-time student at a well-known university in the city adjacent to his own for two years. As a 22-year-old who works full-time to support his mother and two siblings he’s starting to wear down considerably and it’s showing.
He’s constantly dozing off in classes, his grades are slipping, and he’s always sleeping in the library instead of heading back home. It’s all for good reason, however, as his busy schedule makes him too tired to take the hour and a half drive back to his home.
In full honesty, Jay could easily drop the work and focus purely on college as his mother makes enough to get them by. But then what would Jay’s purpose be? He’d lose his whole identity and he’s scared of finding out who he really is.
That is until he meets someone who’s a little too persistent to befriend him. Then he has a whole new set of problems as he tries to avoid them while still fulfilling his daily quota. Unfortunately for him, that’s a lot harder to do when they insist on study dates and breaks and lunches that are oddly… fun?
As he gets to know them they slowly get him to open up and soon he’s realizing that life is a lot more than just working to avoid ones own self.
Simple, sweet, cliche - thats me. I hope it’s a decent storyline XD
Anyways, the person would be your character, I don’t mind anyone really. And if you want to have this bud into a romantic relationship between them Jay is pansexual so any gender or sexuality is fine!
Here’s Jay below, you don’t have to put up a character profile if you’d rather just jump in but if you do have one, it doesn’t have to be long.
Just a quick note that he is a WIP so it might be a bit rocky starting up but that makes it fun, right?
Halton Jay Brown, goes by Jay, as he hates his first name.
Gender and Sexuality
He’s of average height, quite plain-looking with his black eyes and dark brown hair that ends about mid-ear, a little longer in the back. His skin is tanned, but not dark. A small scar runs down his jaw from when he broke it as a stupid teenager. His face is square, and yet his features aren’t too defined. Usually his face is puffy from lack of sleep and his eyes are sunken from the same reason. He has no tattoos but would like one or two at some point in his life. Only his left ear is pierced, and usually some long earring sits in it.
Seemed laid back but in reality he just can’t be bothered to care too much. Doesn’t like confrontation and he especially hates any sort of argument.
His sleep schedule is messed up but that’s mostly self-inflicted as browsing the web is much more fun than sleeping.
He makes sure he’s borderline decent to everybody and puts on a kind face when he has to. Think customer service but like always.
Snakes, Lemongrass, horror games, and fan fiction.
The taste of lime, short books, seafood, LED lights (they make him dizzy)
Your average kid with daddy issues and a collective hatred for social interactions, Halton has lived most of his life without his father. Of course his dad is still around and stops by every now and then when the court permits it, but it’s not like Halton likes him in anyway. In fact, his father makes him extremely uncomfortable and for a good reason too.
A few years back his father was charged with robbery and attempted sexual assault after being caught when he triggered a silent alarm system.
Halton hasn’t trusted him since. He works to help support his family and watches over his two younger siblings while his mother is out doing her own work to hopefully lesson their situation.
High school was an interesting time for him. With only a small group of maybe not so good friends, he preferred to skip classes and be an idiot like most other teenage boys. It resulted in the scar on his face from when he crashed a motorcycle and broke his jaw. The scar is a surgical one as they had to push back the displaced bone. He doesn’t like to talk about the old school anymore and avoids anyone who was in his graduating class. He just feels lucky that he even graduated.
Halton is a part-time student at a college that’s about an hour and a half away from where he lives with his mother and siblings. He’s studying Biochemistry. With tuition and the costs of taking care of the family, he can’t afford his own place quite yet but he’s saving up for it. Slowly.
He has a small group of friends but they’re worth more to him than any gold or silver. He’d much rather have them than a warm place to stay. Makes life a little less awful.
