Hello all! I would like to reserve my spot of a character. Female if that matters!

-Maci!

EDIT: Oh, face claim will be Emily Rudd! Forgot to say that.

@iCat: I would like to reserve a male spot with the face being Cody Christian and his secret being that even though he's a heartbreaker with the ladies, he's actually attracted to guys.

Hope that's good.

Hey! I'd like to reserve a spot (currently on a bus trip, so gonna keep this short). I'd like for the face claim to be Colton Haynes (gorgeous man), and his secret would be, he was forced into a sexual relationship with his step-father at the risk of his little brother being harmed. If that's too similar to Cliff's, then he was brutally abused by his step-father because he blamed him for the death of his mother.

Edit 1: i'd like to think he was a popular kid too, taking care of his little brother, and nobody thought anything was wrong. had a girlfriend and eveyrthing.

Hey! It's kinda similar to my character's but honestly they're different enough that I'm happy enough with the first secret. Looking forward to having you!

I think, I'm going to go ahead and change his secret to the second one, to avoid similarities in a sense. He's going to be abused and basically takes care of his younger brother, sorry for the trouble!

Hi, I don't know if it's too late to reserve anything, but is it possible that I reserve a female character with the face claim of Kiana Lede?

Image

Her secret is that she was forced to have an abortion to cover up the fact that she had an affair with one of her teachers.

Hey Girl2! Nope, you’re definitely not too late, I’ll edit in your reservation either tomorrow or Friday! I’m also toying with the idea of adding another character.

I'd like to reserve. Face claim is Ellen Wong cause i happen to see her in a lot of stuff i watch by chance

Image

her secret is the she suffers from severe episodes of schizophrenia.

I'll get more details as time goes on but I just got called into work so I can't do all the research I normally do at the moment :P

the secret that had her move away are 2 that i'm playing with in mind.

1.) That and she witnessed a crime that she didn't report (will have more details)
2.) Or i could have her done a hit an run.

Hey Vincent! Nice to have you on board. One brief thing- the secret mentioned in the rules and the secret that drove them to move away are actually meant to be the same thing. Now, that said, there’s nothing stopping you from having your character have multiple secrets but you’re definitely not obliged to have multiple! Let me know when you pick a concrete one!

Re: The Devil You Know

i'll go with the schizo condition. primarily since i've been playing around with how that would weave in the story while at work.

edit: okay so i'd still like the schizo thing to be somewhat a secret but only her close friend (open to suggestion/volunteers) knows about the condition.

I'd like her secret to be that she was a kidnap victim. She managed to escape but is scared to go to the police and that the perp would find her since he hasn't been caught hence her moving away.

So I don't know much about schizo besides a little I learned back in HS awhile ago. (Sorry if I might sound ignorant and such and if i offend anyone) But wouldn't that be a little difficult to keep a secret, unless on medication, and I've even heard medication to be a downer and changes how a person acts. Sorry if I am 100% wrong.

that's why i do a lot of research into these kinds of things when I am applying them to characters. I want it to be as believable as possible.

If on medication schizo can definitely be hidden. And if the person is taking the right combination of medication then even side effects such as depression or anxiety can also be abated. I even looked up what types of medication can make it to the point where people wouldn't even know a person with schizo even has an issue to begin with.

Like anxiety meds it can be pushed beneath the surface. couple that with the person's own will and those conditions can be lived with.

plus I have a lot of potential stuff tucked away in the back of my mind. so there's a reason behind the madness (literally).
