"Have you ever thought about how in life, we ask so many fucking questions? It’s just one after another all the time. Who are you? Who am I? What’s your favorite song? Who do you trust? Do you smoke? Why? Are you happy? Where do you want to go? So many stupid questions and really what’s the point in answers? Does anyone even know who they are? Oh look! Another fucking question. You can’t answer one question without developing another and it’s an endless cycle of nothingness that draws to no proper conclusion because at the end of it all, there is no answer. What is the meaning of life? What’s our purpose? There’s no answer to those two grand questions and that’s where everything ends up.

See, we’re all kids. Really fucked up broken kids with snapped strings and missing pieces but what does it matter right? Fuck, I’m asking questions again. It doesn’t matter is my point. Nothing does- sex, drugs, money, politics, morality, crimes, good deeds, personalities, appearances- it’s all so superficial because things are only worth what we value them to be. Optimists are naïve, pessimists are dramatic and what’s a realist when nothing’s real?

So let me answer one dumb question for you.

Who am I?
I don’t know.
Who are you?
Who knows!"


In every small local town, there’s that one group of kids. The group of kids parent warn their children about, the boys Father’s chase with broomsticks in their night wear, the girls that Mother’s encourage their sons away from. The kids with all the contacts they need in order to get stoned or drunk but none to get them into a good school or on a career path. However, these children- these juvenile and lost young men or women, are ever so misunderstood. They didn’t choose to be the fuck ups their perceived to be. They had dreams, ambitions, hopes- but sometimes life just gets in the way and sometimes you can’t escape your skin. They were set up with messy fates either from the start or when they got lost off the path but one way or another they’ve ended up here and it’s their final year.

The role play follows the concept of the TV show ‘Skins’. It will explore the lives of a group of young teenagers and their life problems and peaks as they compete to finish their A-Levels and get into University or the work place. Themes of a dark, mature and possibly offensive nature will be explored, so please be understanding of this before you join, swearing is also to be tolerated in order to achieve a more realistic perception of the youths.

She laughed softly shrugged. "Let's just call the hug an I.O.U then because I don't want to be responsible for breaking the rest of your ribs," She told him light heartedly, so relieved to see she had done some kind of good and brought some kind of light around for him but when he announced there was no kind of vegan food in the hospital, she genuinely looked quite horrified as if she might genuinely get up and go say something to the nurses.

"You are kidding me right? They don't do anything vegan? What the fuck? I'll drop some hints to your parents and do what I can. That's not fair- would they make a Jewish person eat pork? Or make a pregnant women eat pate? Or a lactose intolerant eat a fucking baby bel, I bet they bloody wouldn't," She vented folding her arms in a childish mannerism that only proved how that news came to her in distaste. "I'll fight them," She joked. "I might be 5,4 and incapable of opening heavy doors but I will fight them with my stealth and midgetness," She insisted smirking a little in good humour.

"Oh Jesus, I thought she looked like something out of 'Orange is the New Black' and to be fair, this place is kind of like a prison in one sense- just with much shinier interior designs," She shrugged, looking to him with soft eyes when he thanked her. "Don't thank me, honestly it was just kinda nice to have something to do- I couldn't sleep the other night so sitting up and doing something productive felt pretty great and oh yeah, I made a playlist of recommendations- you can give me feedback next time I feel like breaking into a hospital," She told him. She turned around because she heard the sound of a voice just outside the door and her eyes widened a little but she raised a finger as if to tell him, she had an idea. She then dashed to the other side of the room and squeezed herself into a fairly hidden gap between a cabinet and set of equipment and as the Nurse returned into the room she had both hands clamped over her mouth to hold back the laughter threatening her and her body squirmed a little at one point but she gained some self control and stopped herself, biting her tongue harshly to keep herself grounded. She wasn't quite sure what had given her the idea to hide but she figured that was better than getting escorted out by security again, she really wasn't very happy about that one. On her way out the building she'd been shouting that she'd only give them two stars on 'TripAdvisor', she hadn't been amused at all but her way of dealing with pain had always been black comedy and dry humour. She watched the Nurse walk over to Jamie and address him and Bella bit her tongue.

"Jamie right? Right so, your blood tests have just been sent off and we'll give you the results of those as soon as we have them, it could be a couple of days though and in a couple of hours another Nurse will be in to change your cast and bandages..." With an arched brow she noticed the iPod and chocolate and she looked at him. "Have you had any visitors today then?" She asked in a tone which created the atmosphere of being in a sweaty examination hall and almost drew a reaction out of Bella who again had to bit her own tongue and a sudden flood of warmth and pain revealed to her, that she'd actually managed to tear the tissue a slight bit and she inwardly groaned but nothing audible.

He listened to everything she said and predictably, it was all very vague but he focused on every last word and then smiled at her reassuringly when she was done, nodding in understanding and patiently waiting till she'd said her piece to speak and once she had, he let it be. He understood now just like he always had, even when he was in the dark- he could understand why.

"Okay Ellie, I get it. But if there is ever anything I can do, you know you only need to ask me yeah? You don't have to do everything on your own and having help- doesn't make your weak, it makes you honest. Except maybe when you've done any homework for me and I've said it's my own work but still," He added the joke softly to try and keep her smiling, keep her positive even when she'd obviously landed in a slightly darker place within her life.

"Ellie, how could I and when have I ever been mad with you?" He responded to her honestly and the question wasn't rhetorical and he was making a true point although Ellie had a tendency to mess him around a fair amount, he never reacted- Sky hadn't been a reaction to falling out with Ellie, he'd been lonely and made a friend. Sleeping with her, he probably would have done regardless of his status with Ellie because he was a guy, a single guy in college- most guys would have. Nothing he'd done had ever been to make a point to Ellie and spite her.

"Your welcome Els, thank you for putting up with a loser of a completely different quartile of intelligence to you- that particular loser very much appreciates having a friend as intelligent, individual and interesting as you. That same loser also just managed to use a literary persuasive technique called alliteration successfully for the first time in his entire existence but realises it was about time to stop talking in the third person because it's quite creepy," He rambled away for a moment and just smiled at her softly in reassurance before their drinks were brought to the table and gratefully accepted his Corona and took a small mouthful from the bottle before leaning back with a gentle sigh.

"Forgetting the circumstances, I'm actually really glad you called me because eating Diner food with my nearest and dearest friend, really beats smoking on a rotting fence watching cows. Cows are the first thing I've found that isn't funnier after smoking pot. Kind of gutted," He told her, the waitress shot him a judgemental stare and he rolled his eyes a little before looking at Ellie. "There goes her tip," He joked lightly.

He laughed at her indignant response. "Bella, it's a choice. You can't really compare it to anything based on religion or actual healthcare- and as long as I'm not eating animals, I can deal with it," he said. Before he could respond to her comment about the playlist, though, they both heard a nurse approaching. In a millisecond, Bella was hiding the other side of the room- where he could see her, but just about nobody else could. He quickly recovered his calm expression as the nurse walked in. As she asked about visitors, he shrugged. "Yeah, my parents," he said. It wasn't a lie- they'd been in earlier. He was just leaving out the bit about Bella as well.

"Okay, then. The doctor will probably be around with the blood test results, he'll probably want to talk to you about them," she said, hooking him up to the blood pressure monitor. It seemed to take an eternity to inflate, and he was sure that either he or Bella would get the giggles and give them both away- but eventually it was over, and she wrote down the result. He thought she'd leave then- but she still had a number of tests to do. Once his temperature and pulse were done, she hooked the chart over the end of the bed and left. He started to laugh, looking over at Bella. "That was close," he remarked.

She smiled as her Coke was put down in front of her, and she took a mouthful out of it. She honestly didn't know what she'd done to deserve Nate. She was a complete bitch, and he was the biggest sweetheart she'd ever had the fortune to meet. She laughed at his comments, finally starting to feel a little better. This was why she called him instead of anyone else- because he didn't judge, and instead he just focused on making her laugh.

"You'd have to be completely off your head to find cows in any way funny. Magic mushrooms or LSD or some crazy trippy shit like that, and even that's pushing it," she remarked, laughing a little. "I don't think cows can ever really be funny- they're like the most boring animals ever," she said, taking another mouthful out of her Coke. "Sheep have to give them a run for their money, though. Chickens can be somewhat entertaining at times. But farmyard animals in general aren't particularly that funny."

As soon as the door was close, Bella dropped onto the floor laughing almost uncontrollable grinning over at him as she tried to catch her breath. After a moment of trying to pull herself back together, she scoffed softly and shook her head climbing back onto her feet and re taking her place by his side in the chair. "The bloody things I do for you Mr Chapman- I swear I could probably get arrested for this," She sighed gently sitting back in the seat with an amused expression. "Christ, I can't believe I even fit in there, it's like the size of a locker down there," She groaned rubbing her forehead a little as she spoke but she instantly regretted her words because it brought attention to her weight but she brushed over it quickly by smiling.

"Do you think I'll grow up one day? Like do the mature adult thing?" She sighed, uttering her words softly- the dimple in her cheek however giving away she still found the whole situation incredibly entertaining. She was so caught up in the adrenaline of hiding, the joy of his company and just general positivity- she'd completely forgotten everything she had to go home too, her Mother, the nausea that had been haunting her like a ghost for the past week and the harrowing glow on the scales and the constant reminders everywhere at home of all things negative. From the second she arrived at Jamie's hospital door to this very second none of those things had even occurred to her and she genuinely hadn't stopped smiling either. It was just undeniable that Jamie had a way of keeping her anchored and grounded like no body else could and she appreciated that with every single second spent in his company.

"I know right but it was still majorly disappointing. I know two things about cows though, one being that they have like four stomachs and two being that they always sit down before it starts to rain- it's dumbshit but that's actually all I know," He laughed rolling his eyes a little at himself before taking a long drink from his corona, he hadn't realised how uptight he'd been for the past weekend till he'd relaxed a little bit again, he'd been really short and withdrawn from his Grandad and thinking about now he felt quite bad but he decided that he'd make up for it, when they got home he'd crack open some beers for him and challenge him to a round of Blackjack or something.

"Nah sheep are quite funny, that weird baar-ing thing, that's quite amusing but that's probably because I'm 6 years old," He shrugged. He looked around the diner and then his eyes lit up at the sight of a helium balloon. "Hey, wanna do something funny and dickish?" He asked waggling his eyebrows at her mockingly.

"Bella Swift? Grow up? Never. You're basically Peter Pan," he remarked, laughing a little. "Well, mentally at least." He couldn't remember the last time he'd felt this good- it had definitely been back before the summer, back before things had gotten really bad- back when he'd still been talking to Bella and hadn't had Jace to worry about. He knew that this was all short lived- Bella would have to leave, he'd be left alone, and he'd get anxious and depressed all over again. But that just made him appreciate it all the more.

"The only person I've met who's more immature than you is Nate when he's stoned, seriously," he joked. "But at least you made me feel better- laughter is the best medicine and all that," he said. "Well, that and the chocolate and the music. They help too. I don't suppose you fancy hiding under my bed until I get out of here?" He asked jokingly- but really, he wished she could stay all the time. He wouldn't have to worry about her that way, and he'd have her all of the time to keep him company and make him laugh. That was all he really wanted.


Image

She rolled her eyes at his comment about sheep. "You're literally a six-year old who drinks and smokes, I swear," she sighed, but she laughed. She followed his gaze, and was able to guess his thought pattern when he saw the balloon. This was Nate. There was only one thing on his mind.

"No," she said, managing to keep a straight face. But then she grinned at him. "But I'm always in the mood to laugh at you doing something funny and dickish," she said. That seemed to be so much of their friendship- him doing something stupid, and her laughing at him. If she was in a better mood, she probably would have joined in- but not quite yet. Her insecurity, frustration and self-hatred still lingered at the edges of her mind.

The waitress appeared, putting her food down in front of her. Ellie thanked her, spearing some fries on her fork and putting them in her mouth. "Dare you to do it before she comes back with your food," she whispered as soon as the waitress had walked away from the table. Ellie was still grinning, incredibly glad that she'd remembered Nate's number and had been able to call him.

She laughed gently at his 'Peter Pan' comment- it was one of her favourite films after all. "I could so be Peter Pan, just with better style I reckon- I never really got the whole leaf jeans thing," She replied softly running a hand through her freshly washed black locks with a short smile. "Oh my god but no body is more immature than a stoned Nathaniel Carlile- that doesn't even count, that's a whole new level," She sighed grinning gently.

Though her smiled became more consistent and warm when he said she'd cheered him up and honestly, that touched her heart because that was all she'd wanted to do. That was exactly what had dragged her onto her feet this morning from whatever dark corner of their town she'd been hiding in, to face up to her Mother (again)- she'd done it all so she could be here with him today and try and make anything she could happier or even just more bearable for him, anything as long it helped him.

"Good, that's all I wanted to do," She told him honestly, looking over to catch his eye for a moment as she spoke simply because he wanted him to understand she meant every word she'd ever said.

"I'd genuinely try if you want me to," She replied and it was true. Bella really would try and hide under the bed, if he told her to- she'd do it in a heartbeat because that's just how he was- she was the one person who did all those crazy things people joked about doing but knew better than to try. "I'm already wanted out here- what more can they do hey?" She scoffed smirking mischievously before it crumpled as she broke down into laughter.





n a t h a n i e l

"You think I won't but you really should know better by now Els," He looked at the balloon, the waitress and then Ellie and smirked at her cockily before nodding. "You are so on," He told her looking a mixture of pleased with himself and completely entertained. He turned around and looked at her before winking mockingly; "anything to make you laugh love," He joked rolling his eyes at himself before he walked off to where the balloons were being kept and he snuck one whilst the staff weren't paying any attention to him before rushing back over to their booth and plopping hiself down in his seat looking satisfied.

"And so it begins," He told her, he carefully unknotted the balloon pinching it so no helium was lost before bringing it to his lips and sharply inhaling but not the full amount- he wanted to save some for when the waitress came back.

"Hello," He squeaked- his voice higher than a girl scout's and then laughed out loud but with the helium it made him sound like an animated Disney character. "Oh holy shit- I sound like foetus Justin Bieber," His eyes lit up with the passion that he only ever had when it came to his bad ideas, pot or pranks and with another quick breath of helium in his lungs, he began to sing; "Like baby, baby, baby oooh," By this point he was genuinely in stitches at the sound of himself and his whole body seemed to crease as he fell back a bit against the booth howling.

He laughed at her response. "Nah, you'd only end up getting sick of me," he said, but realised that he couldn't just say that. "I snore something terrible with all the medication I'm on, and I don't have anything to stop me from biting my nails, so I'd only end up driving you mad," he teased. If the psychiatrist had been present at that point, he wouldn't have let that point drop. It would have been "interesting" and a discussion point. Apparently, he wasn't going to make any guesses as to a diagnosis until he heard the full story. Part of Jamie wanted to talk- but not with his parents constantly hovering and doctors walking in and out. But on the flip-side, there was a chance that he wouldn't be discharged until all of his doctors were happy with him.

"Anyway, have I missed anything major at school? How many times have you had to tell people what happened?" He asked, eager to get the topic off of him. Now that some people knew, he was terrified that everyone would end up knowing. And he didn't want Bella of all people finding out. He was still scared of her leaving, even with everything they'd gotten through together.

The moment Nate opened his mouth after inhaling the helium, Ellie was in pieces. And the more he talked, the worse it got. By the time he started singing, there was genuinely a pain in her stomach from laughing. Nate was the only person who could make her laugh like that, who could make her laugh until she cried. The fact that he sounded like a demented Disney character while laughing only made things worse.

"Shut up, I think she's coming!" Ellie said, straightening up and taking a mouthful out of her coke as she tried to calm herself down. She shoved some fries into her mouth, hoping that would help. But as soon as she thought of Nate's ridiculous voice, she very nearly lost it again. It was exactly what she needed today. Sometimes she wished that there were more people she could be this ridiculous around- but at the same time, she was kind of glad that it was saved just for Nate.

The waitress put Nate's food down in front of them with a smile. "Now, can I get you guys anything else?" She asked. Ellie looked over at Nate. "I'm good anyway. Nate?"

"oh it's take a lot more than that J, don't be stupid," She laughed softly smiling at him but she tried to stop herself because she was worried she was making things too obvious when she was around him. She looked at him for a moment and realised just how much she admired him because even know in bandages and hospitalised he was still smiling and laughing even though everything outside their friendship in their lives seemed to be falling a part and sometimes even know they seemed to struggle when Bella got too caught up in her feelings and feels the need to isolate herself to a degree to hold herself back.

She sighed at the mention of school, the truth was she hadn't done a full day at school since the party- she's only gone in for her music lessons and philosophy and occasionally art because she felt like she needed. Perception and spirituality more than ever at this moment in her life with Jamie away and her Mother so...hard to live with but her attendance was below 70% and she'd get pulled up for it soon- maybe even excluded.

"Well, I've actually been going in for a start," She lied because if Jamie knew she wasn't at school, he'd be concerned and he didn't need that on top f everything else at the minute. "I finished that piece in Art- the deamentor from Harry Potter but now whatshername- that blonde Netball captain bitch, she thinks I'm insane and I made up deamentors. I actually haven't explained it to anyone, I told everyone from Music they could go fuck themselves with a pineapple and I still wouldn't tell them somebody's else's business. I might have called our philosophy teacher a ' c u next tuesday' because she accused us of asking for trouble like this anyway and people stopped trying to ask me after that. I'm sorry I just thought you'd rather tell the people you wanted to know yourself when you come back y'know," She explained gently. "Oh and Cassidy asked me if we fucked in a tent- apparently that's a rumour going round now but you can imagine my response to that- it was colourful to say the least, people are so rude. Like so what if we did? It's no their business, I mean I know we did not of course but if we had- why do they care?" She asked raising her arms in the air looking ever so offended and almost passionate about her small vent. She told him these stories because they were the onl laughable ones, she missed out the questions that we're raised in the dance changing rooms when a girl noticed her scars and bruises because she slipped whilst taking off her jeans. She missed out the part where she went to the headmaster's office for her language towards their pho sloppy teacher or every time her Mother beat her over skipping a lesson. She didn't tell Jamie because right now he didn't need to know and she'd tell him when he was stronger but for now, she had to be the strong one for a while and she could do that- she could do that for him and his sake.





n a t h a n i e l

Nate clamped his mouth shut to try and stop himself laughing, his body rippling slightly and his expression creasing in a suspicious and recognisable manner. He looked over at Ellie having to turn around as she spoke to the waitress to inhale more helium before turning around to the waitress and grinni; "Everything is crackalakin' thank you very much as my dear idol Chris Rock would say," His voice rang like a prepubescent primary school boy but at the same time it was so much worse it wouldn't even be believable at that age. Other customers were looking at them with a disapproving locks of distaste and disgust but Nate couldn't have given a toss, he was still laughing and he genuinely thought he might even cry because he couldn't stop any more, it all just poured out of him- honest, genuine and happy laughter. The kind of hysterics that were completely contagious and would made everyone else want to laugh and join in even when they didn't think you were funny and his foolish grin was so innocent and child like it was hard to be mad or be irritated by him. After a few moments of heavy chuckling, the helium's effects wore off and he sighed rubbing the corner of his eyes were genuine moisture had arisen- his eyes threatening tears and his whole body cringed because of it as he finally calmed down from the minute of amusement.

Grinning he sighed shaking his head a few moments later. "I don't remember the last time I laughed like that," He admitted running his hands through his hair to fix it from where it's been spoilt during his fit of hysterics. He didn't even know if the waitress was there or not anymore, he just couldn't ground himself properly. "Fucking hell Ellie," He groaned after a while of shaking his head.

He laughed at her stories. Of course he could rely on her to stave off the worst of the questions. People would still be asking what happened when he went back, but they'd probably be a bit more reserved about it now. They'd learned long ago that it was a bad idea to get on Bella's bad side. She was like his own personal guard dog. Admittedly, that did usually end up getting her into trouble, and he'd had to do some fast talking to stop her from getting into serious trouble before. But when he didn't feel like dealing with people and just wanted to be left alone, Bella was able to get everyone to leave him alone. But unfortunately, that involved telling her when he was having a bad day, and that was basically every day now. So he saved it for his worst days.

"Do you'll think there'll ever come a day when one of us isn't at the center of the drama?" He asked jokingly. In previous years, they'd mostly kept themselves to themselves, besides Bella's big mouth occasionally getting her in trouble. But this year, the only drama happening seemed to have them at the root. And Jamie kinda just wanted that to go away so he could deal with his own issues.

She held her straight face until Nate started talking, and then disintegrated into laughter. She couldn't remember the last time she'd laughed this much, to the point where there was a moment where she genuinely thought she was going to throw up. But then it subsided, and she managed to stop herself from laughing, Tears were streaming down her cheeks for the second time that day- but this time from laughter. She wiped her cheeks as she still chuckled to herself.

"Jesus fucking Christ, Nate," she managed to say. "I think I'm just going to call you whenever I'm hung over from now on," she remarked, picking up her burger to take a bite out of it. They definitely hadn't skimped on the bacon, and the presence of something in her stomach was comforting. She certainly wasn't the most ladylike eater, especially with a burger, but she didn't particularly care. "Oh, holy crap, this burger is amazing," she remarked. "Then again, I did have a killer craving for bacon, so basically the fact that this contains bacon pretty much guaranteed it to be good," she continued,

"Jamie darling," She started jokingly, a white toothed smile betraying her attempt at keeping a straight face. "The week Nate spends more than 3 days sober will be the day somebody doesn't find something about us to start a drama over- even before we started our A-Levels we always got dragged into shit which to be fair, was mostly my fault- I apologise for that sincerely," She replied him to gently running a small hand through her thick dark hair, looking at him contently but she knew better than to know his question came purely out of jest. He was genuinely concerned this wouldn't die down wasn't he? She wandered for a moment but deep down she knew he'd never find the kind of attention they'd been getting lately easy. In a moment of courage, she swallowed her pride and leaned over, gently taking his hand in hers and looking down as she thought to herself, watching her own hand.

"It'll pass Jamie. You'll get out, we'll go to school- keep our heads down, finish our A-Levels and then move out, the drama won't follow us till the end of the year forget to our adult lives," She assured softly. "Then we can like go to London or somewhere and I'll go to a Dance academy or something and you'll start climbing the music ladder- y'know get a band and a record deal going, then I'll take a year off to come tour with you guys and to make sure you don't embarrass yourself in the tour bus and then I'll drag your sorry ass to a recital of mine and we'll sit there in a bar in the early hours of the following morning, at 2am thinking; fuck, remember when we were at school? That was pretty shitty but hey, got us here," She told him, listing off the story like it was something she'd thought about hundreds of times before and maybe it was. "Or- I suppose you could be a vet nurse but I'm sorry I'm not coming to watch you do some kind of operation, I'd faint," She replied with a small joking smile.

It was funny for all Bella's fearlessness, pride and attitude- you'd never see her wince at anything except her Mother and a certain, very specific insult. You'd never see her cringe about anything else other than those things except for a hurt animal. It'd probably reduce her to tears, she could remember walking to school once with Jamie when she'd first started after getting expelled from her private school back in Chelsea and they'd found a road kill and out of no where this girl in gothic patterned tights, black lip stick and boots started crying and it was almost unbelievable how sudden the impact of it was. She remembered that with a fond smile because she could recall how she used to look like Mavis out of 'Hotel Transylvania' like it was the reflection she'd seen in the mirror that morning.

So out of seemingly nowhere she turned to Jamie with a sheepish smile of amusement. "Hey Jamie," She whispered like she was about to tell him some insanely confidential gossip; "Remember when I used to look like Mavis?" She asked with a soft laugh.

He laughed with her grinning softly before he had a go at his food, trying it and shamelessly savouring the taste with a slight moan but after he finished his mouthful, he was already brought to slight chuckles again after hearing Ellie's comment and seeing how casually she ate her food- her table manners were genuinely worse than his and he was a male stoner, how the hell could she be worst? It was only because Nate was such a posh boy at the same time, he spoke, dressed and had the mannerisms of a posh boy but at the same time he was incredibly thick skulled, lazy and of course- a stoner. It didn't make a lot of sense but it was something most people had gotten use to over the years.

"Ellie my darling- call me whenever you have a hangover, I insist you do because I haven't laughed this hard since like Year Two," He told her honestly, grinning gently. He rolled his eyes at her comments on the food; "You sound like me when I've got munchies," He commented before taking a sip of his drink.

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Right guys it's been like a month and one of you haven't posted at all and most of you have only posted once. If people are still interested in the RP it'd be highly appreciated if people could say so or otherwise.

Thank you.

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

The character of Logan Lerman is available once again if anybody would like the role.

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Thanks @RubyTuesday I loved her bio and she's been accepted!

Which means (@everyone) we're good to go, so we can post properly now and start replying to each other. I'll continue to try and fill in the remaining roles but people can control them as required in posts- would that be an NPC? I don't know but hopefully you guys get what I mean.

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Okay, save for a little bit of touching up here and there, Fee is good to go! :D

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Hi guys, still need to fill roles FC: Hatden Panneteire and FC: Lee Hong Ki if anybody's willing to take on another character, that'd be much appreciated, it'd also be cool if you guys could mention it to someone who might be interested and thank you to everyone who's finished their character sheets- their all amazing and I love how you guys have developed the characters. If everybody with an accepted character could do their Intro post, we'll be able to start once we have completed character sheets for;

FC: Taylor Momsen
FC: Hayden Pannetire *
FC: Lee Hong Ki *


* These characters we could possibly get away without having but I'd rather they were filled.

So thank you guys for all your efforts, with the best of luck we will properly start the RP this week. I'll submit a second reply and call the RP active, once all accepted characters have submitted an intro post and FC: Taylor Momsen is complete.

Thank you
~ Livy

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

@Imaveronica
I'm afraid, the character isn't available but there is still another female role open and a male one if you're interested in either of those.

@iCat
Awesome, I'll look forward to seeing it! :)

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Thank you! I'll be sure to post at some point today. :)

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

It's fine! Just let me know ASAP if I've got the reservation or not ;)

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

@iCat I just saw his bio and I love it- it's a really lovely CS and thank you for finishing it so quickly! Feel free to post an intro post when you feel like it, I've done mine and I thought it'd be better to get things swinging (not more than the first posts but you know) so feel free!

@Imaveronica
I would say yes but I need to confirm some things with somebody else first because they might be after that role and they would have been here first, so I'll have to check where they stand on that before I can either confirm or deny your reservation. I'm sorry if this inconvenient.

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Hey!

Is Taylor Momsen still available?! If so I'd love to reserve her!

Although she' kind of scary on the outside, she's probably the sweetest and most genuine person out of the group. She likes to express herself and has very gothic out look on life and take on fashion but she's very golden hearted and is an incredibly loyal friend. Bound to friendship with FC: Lee Hong Ki since they met over the summer, they two have recently attached over the acknowledgement of similar life problems, age and attending the same college. For a very long time, she's been in a frequent patient at a hospital for eating disorders in the local area and has been labelled as bulimic since she was 13 years old but her condition has supposedly been getting better for the past year but the pressure of college could lead to a turn for the worse since she isn't a natural academic. She's never found learning easy and there for always been treated school like one big practical joke and she's starting to realise now and seriously regret it. The girl's almost every last cliché too considering she's adopted but still doesn't know it even though it's blindingly obvious she looks nothing like either of her supposed parents. The other problem is the constant bullying she gets from her peers...including FC: Hayden Pannetiere

Face Claim: Taylor Momsen
Birthday: 10th June

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

@iCat of course you can dear! I love the look of your W.I.P so far by the way.

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

Hey, could I reserve FC: Oliver Sykes? This looks like it's going to be interesting!

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

@unicorns.are.real
Ah okay- that's a shame though but I know what you mean about getting involved in too many RPs. I do that too xD

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

could I reserve Face Claim Olver Sykes?

Nevermind, I really shouldn't take on another RP at the moment

Re: Skins: Secrets Out {Character Bios} PLEASE READ!

It's not, but the only thing about it is that I might struggle to fill up the others roles because if I make another guy and girl, then there's still 3 guys and a girl to fill up. But we'll see how it goes. I'm currently working on my CS for Arabella but afterwards I'll start considering the character and writing them up.
