Β« "I can see the world in a very precise light and that light is monochrome; because it's as simple as a black and white photograph. There's two sides- the black and the white, the good and the evil, the positive and the negative, the ying and the yang. The world can be very good but it can also be very bad, it's not particularly pretty but it's also not all ugly- you see what I mean? Black and white. Monochrome. Simple. " Β»

|Secrets|
"I'm not a secretive person, I'm just not one to talk much,"
β—† Previous struggles with self-confidence and an very minute case of an eating disorder, it was brought on by being surrounded by athletic, beautiful girls at her dance classes and a very affirmative, unsupportive and cynical Madame teaching her in her individual sessions. Being a sensitive person, Elizabeth struggled to cope with the constant stream of criticism and faded away into a shell of herself. Her refusal to eat and drink and restless, reckless behaviour all caused very strained relationships with her friends and family thus Elizabeth moving to live with her elder sister though Elizabeth has recently improved in health by milestones, there is still some small concern.

β—† She still sleeps with a stuffed animal (A scruffy and shiny eyed brown bear, named 'Brown Bear' from when she was a baby)

β—† She hates children, she feels horrible about it but she just can't help herself from despising children. She physically cannot compliment someone on their son or daughter- no matter who. She doesn't understand why because Effy is a very accepting and affectionate person but children, that's a no no and her number on pet peeve is people who ask to bring their children to social events.


|Personality|
Elizabeth Olivia Jane Fitzgerald has quite often been misinterpreted as being a girl of many faces, untrustworthy and dishonest but this judgement made rather poorly from a great distance from the heart and soul of the girl is a complete and utter misjudgement. She's a quiet girl but around the right people, people of good humour, compassion, love and empathy- she can be so light hearted and a joy to be around but around people who are maybe more realistic, less engrossed by their dreams and more blunt she tends to be very sombre and quiet around because Effy can't make positive 'vibes' of her own, she lives off what people give her because her own moods tend to be very neutral and bored or strikingly negative. She relies on people to pick her up, distract her and turn her world upside down to keep her busy and motivated. The only self-motivation she's ever shown has been towards dance- she's always been very serious about her dance ever since she could walk she's been twirling, tip-toeing an tumbling with the grace of an angel, even the way she walks is known to be very rhythmic and carefully choreographed step by step.

Although she is a dancer, Effy is a sister first and foremost. She's remarkably loyal to her older sister and insistent on her superiority of her and how she deserves the world. You'll probably never come across someone who looks up to their elder sibling as much as Elizabeth does. Effy would tear mountains apart if she could for her sister- or any other member of her family but especially her big sister. She's always held her in the most highest regards of respect.
"I know I can be quite difficult and for that, I sincerely apologise,"

|History|
"I'd rather talk about tomorrow, if that's okay?
Effy was born to her parents in the winter of 1994 and has apparently been a burden ever since. Effy was always a very focused and active child, she could never sit still and was always moving, twirling, jumping and wiggling- even in classes at school when she was trying to do her work, she doesn't even rest in her sleep because it's no secret that Effy tends to sleep walk and talk all the time. It became a family joke about Effy's sleepwalking habits. This constant activity is what led to Effy being signed up to dance classes from a very young age, she's been dancing since she was 3 and since then she's now become so close to it become a possibly professional career in Ballet for her. Elizabeth was always completely infatuated by dancers, rhythm and music- she was obsessed with it and she spent her life living to fixed beats until she lost her spirit at around 16.

She was quite young when her confidence problems began when it became noticeably to her she wasn't as slim and tall as other girls at her dance school and her Madame also paid attention to this and would make the girl aware of this in her classes, criticising her and insisting she ate more healthily and came to more training sessions in order to shift the 'extra pounds' Effy supposedly carried and sadly as she grew older the obsession became unhealthier and unhealthier until she was hospitalised due to collapsing in the middle of a demanding performance in one of the ballet school's dance recitals. She was 17 at the time and since then, Effy has been trying to balance her confidence, concerns, hobbies and diet appropriately but even know she has tendencies to under eat when she can get away with it and you could still describe Effy as being malnourished.

So begins...

She'd told her students that she was going a much-needed vacation to get her head in the right mindset before competition season. "They're going to see straight through that.." She shook her head, and intensified her grip on the steering wheel. She drove for a few hours more, having already accomplished some of the feat between her home and where her sister was. From Kentucky to New York, it wasn't too long, but it was still considered a long-distance trip, and Em didn't want to have the hassle of airports. Who really gets anything positive from that place? Emily sighed through her nose as she swiped her phone, typing her pass code in quickly, to text her younger, vulnerable, sister.

To Effy:
"Love, where are you? It's nearly 3 o'clock. I thought you were going to meet me at the door of The Tower?"


She snarled as a passer-by bumped into her, and she quickly snapped, "Watch it!". Today was starting out lovely, that was for sure. She couldn't help but wonder who else lived in the city, it was so different from what she'd accustomed to for the past years.

Effy was rushing frantically around trying to pull herself together and get to Towers on time. She really didn't want to hold her sister up or be late, she was doing her such a huge favour in helping her leave home without living alone and she didn't want to make her sister regret that. The fresh start was literally Effy's life line at the minute and she wasn't prepared to risk it or risk upsetting Emily either. There was no one in Effy's life who was more important to her than her big sister, she rarely admitted it but Emily had to know that. Effy had always looked up to her about absolutely everything, gone to her for advice and help- she completely idolised her which is why today, she was determined not to let her down and ruin the first day of her second chance.

Her phone vibrated in the pocket of her coat and she quickly fished it out to check the message in case it was important.

To Emily:

I'm so sorry sis, I'm two minutes away, I won't be long. Taxi driver over charged and dropped me off like a quarter of a mile away!

She rapidly sent the message and continued charging down the street in her heeled Chelsea boots, praying she'd make good time. It really meant the world to her being here right now and she wanted her sister to know she was serious about starting again- starting fresh, she'd keep dancing but in a healthy, positive mind-set. That was the little dream she'd developed in her head and it's how things had to work out or she'd never be trusted to move out properly and with all the tension between her and her parents, there was no way she could stand being at home any longer. She was starting to get too old for that as well, which seemed like the least important of her reasons to leave.

Her earphone fell out of her ear as she made a swift turn on the corner of the street and rushed up to the gates to meet her sister, she was so, so, so nervous but she'd never been so excited either. It seemed like a whole new world being in New York and she didn't even think she could cope thinking about all the opportunities there'd be for a dancing career out here. She couldn't even begin to wonder.

This was going to be good for her, it had to be and she prayed it would be.

She owed it to Emily to make this work and for that reason, she would.

She hadn't seen Effy in too long to remember exactly. She loved her baby sister will all of her heart, and no one would ever compare to her in Em's eyes. She hoped Effy wasn't too far as she read the text message, smiling at her sister's apology. Effy could never apologize again and Em would be just fine with that. Her little sister was her outlet to be kiddish, and act as if she was a child again.

Her eyes swelled, threatening to burst with emotions as she laid eyes on her small figure in heeled boots, and Emily had dorkiest grin slapped on her face, not leaving soon. "Elizabeth!" She squealed happily, and scooped her sister in her arms, nearly dropping her own purse, and pulling her sister as close as she could. "You're still so small, and beautiful, and amazing, and I missed you so much, kid." She mumbled, and pulled back, gently kissing her forehead and holding her cheeks.

"You're still my dancer, that's for sure. Those muscles are so tight, I just can't add up to that." She chuckled, and would rather not talk about her sad director figure. Her arms weren't flabby only because of her constant conducting, but that might change soon enough. "So, can we go inside now?" She smiled, and looked at the pretty much eye level Elizabeth.

β€» Mood: Elevated - Hopeful - Nervy
β€» Listening To: Alive - Pearl Jam
β€» With: Elizabeth {Sister}
β€» Dialogue Colour: #BD3C3C
"Em!" Elizabeth cried out wrapping her small arms around her sister tightly and holding on like she didn't know how to go to let go for just a moment. She'd missed her sister so badly whilst the two had been separated and it was genuinely quite a big moment for Effy reunited with her again. She rest her head on her shoulder for a long moment before they pulled away and Effy smiled at her happily.

The use of the word 'small' lingered on the front of Effy's mind for a moment but she shook her head at herself and forced it away. She was happy, she wasn't going to think about all of that right now.

"I missed you too Em," She uttered lightly looking up at her sister with a childish grin. She laughed at the comment on her muscles and beamed at her before teasing; "My muscles? I'm not sure about. I reckon we should arm wrestle to test it," She joked always playful and challenging like she had been since they were children. "Uh-huh, I'm kind of cold so let's get inside," She agreed refusing to give her sister a choice but to link arms with her as she tossed her arm around her sister's and whilst laughing a little, led her up to the door with a small spring in her step.

She was overjoyed to have her sister with her and not just because if she hadn't, she'd have been made to move back home. She thought Emily would like the city and she could only hope she liked it as much as Effy had come to but she was sure she was, there was so much out there in this town.

Emily faked a frown as she looked at Elizabeth. "You always did win at those.." She chuckled, and was a bit surprised at the bonding of arms that happened. "Effy, don't leave my luggage!" She grinned, and turned, still connected to her, and managing to grab her bag, then catch up with her.

The city was so.. new to Emily, and so home to Elizabeth. It was uncanny how there were so many people at once. She'd already had a head-on collision with some person trying to get to work, the way they were on their phone. "So, do you know any of your neighbors, or are you all just kinda, ignoring each other until impossible?" She chuckled, walking inside the elevator, but letting her sister guide her inside.

She was so proud of her sister for letting her come and move in with her. Emily knew her sister was trying so hard to be better, not just at dancing, but in all of her flaws, and Emily couldn't be a more proud big sister. Once they were inside the apartment, she smiled, and patted her sister's shoulder firmly. "This place is adorable. How long have you lived here again?" She asked, raising an eyebrow, and was just about to sit on the comfortable looking sofa, when it hit her.

"I still have luggage in the car!" She gasped a little, and went right back down to the entrance, and to her car, which probably would have been towed otherwise. "Oh, shoot." She looked at the luggage, and had the two boxes in her arms, but she couldn't see that well. She shut the trunk on her car, and slid the keys into her pocket, then lifted up the boxes, and ventured her way to the elevator, with no collisions. But, almost as soon as she stepped out of the elevator, she took a few steps, then obviously bumped into something.. or someone.

"I.. I am so sorry." She said quickly, her eyes a little big. She turned her stance to try and get a glimpse of the victim was. "Are.. are you alright, sir?" She asked, after seeing a glimpse of the masculine structure standing before her. "I'm really sorry." An apologetic smile on her lips as her eyes looked him over once he was in view.

"Uh.. yeah. I'm a band director, so it's kind of mandatory I know most instruments." She chuckled, and steadied her grip on the boxes still. "I don't mean to be rude, but I kinda need to set these down, so.." She smiled a last time. "I guess I'll see you around then." She chuckled lightly, and knocked on the door, to be let into the apartment her sister was currently occupying.

"Effy, open up!" She said louder, as she wrestled the boxes on her knee.

Effy was in the process of carrying some clothes over to the washing basket when she heard her sister knocking on the door asking for aid, so Effy wobbled over not so graciously struggling under the mountain of clothes and did her best to open the door with elbow before stumbling away to try and get rid of the pile as quickly as possible. "Sorry Em- laundry," She called from the kitchen cross open plan dining room, laughing slightly as she did her best to navigate around furniture with the pile so terribly blocking her view but she made it and crammed the pile into the washing machine and set it up to do a quick wash.

"Hey, I'm sorry it's not amazingly tidy in here or anything and I know it's all boho and crap which is more me than you but I've been at a lot more dance classes lately so I don't have much time for house work- plus I hate it," Effy told her very honestly, smiling sheepishly at her sister as she walked back out into the hall. "But what it lacks in coordination and style, it makes up for with character and cosiness," She argued, trying to justify the very 'hippie' like why she'd furnished the place with beautiful rugs in most rooms and vintage style furniture. The bedroom door was open, exposing Effy's weakness for fairy lights because even through just the crack of the door you could see evidence of the many strings and sets of lights she'd got set up in there. "You were always the more stylish sister anyway so you can sort me out," She shrugged with a laugh. You could see nervousness radiating off Effy, it was almost sweet how desperate she was to have her elder sister's approval and to impress her- it was important to Elizabeth. It was really important everything went perfectly- she cared at the end of the day, about her sister, about the city, apart her apartment and her life out here and her sister's new life out here, she wanted the best for them both and you could see that in everything she did.

"If you're hungry there might be something in the fridge or the cupboards but I really need to go shopping- I've been procrastinating that but I'll go tonight or this evening," She rambled trying to stop herself before she wound her sister up but not quite able to help herself but to find flaws in everything she knew and try to redeem herself for them with justifications and words.

Grace's room was always closed. She ordered a lot of her food and paid someone to get her stuff and bring it to her door. She liked being by herself. She didn't freak out or having heavy breathing. She hated what people might think of her that she is a creep. As she sat in front of her computer she looked at the latest chapter she wrote in her latest romance book.

And as she sat looking at the fire place beside him. She smiled. Nobody made her feel the way he did. As she turned to him and let a small kiss peck his lips. She glared into his eyes. "I love you, i want nothing else but to be with you." And with that they continued kissing until they made passionate love celebrating their wonderful union.

She looked through her peep hole to the outside world. She needed to get out. She normally had the shades closed and lived boxed in. Maybe today would be different and someone would knock on her door forcing her to get out. It was a battle with herself all the time. She didn't know how she was going to do it.

She one day hoped she could escape this life. And change herself like in her books.

"Ef, please, listen to yourself." She chuckled, and ran a hand through her hair. "No one is perfect, babe. Just take a deep breath, the place looks amazing, actually. " She stated matter-of factly, and moved her knee to steady the boxes on the sofa. "Now, which room is mine again?" She smiled, and turned to see her little sister standing there, like a ball of energetic nervousness. "Hey, how about this? Help me get my stuff settled in, and then I'll take you out and we'll get some dinner. Alright?" She smiled at her sister, and kissed her head in a teasing way.

Following her down the hall, she stacked the boxes up on the bed, and took off her jacket as they started unpacking. It wasn't long before a knock followed on the door. It was about 12:30 or so. "I got it, Ef!" She giggled, and went to the front door, where an older man stood, holding a flyer with his shaky hand. "See you tonight, deary." He smiled, departing to the next door. Emily raised her eyebrows, reading the letter:

ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS!

There will be a meeting of all residents of this building in the lobby area on the 1st floor. All are welcome to come, and would be much appreciated. Come meet your neighbors! Don't be shy!

The event begins at 3:00 P.M. and ends at 7:00 P.M.

There will be food, and refreshments for all who attend.

Obligations,
Building Supervisor



Emily turned around, going back to her sister. "Did you know they had these?" She held up the flyer.
