Carmen is a twenty year old who often gets told how much she looks like Vanessa Hudgens, but she just doesn't see the resemblance. She works as a paid intern at a biological research laboratory which is presently studying the effectivity of various kidney and liver medications on monkeys. She lives in room 202 with her roommate Thomas Clemens. She likes to simply thinks of her sexuality as "open-minded" or "attracted to the person", but if pressed to pick, she labels herself as bisexual, although she finds that people don't take her seriously if she says that right off the bat. They often think that she is just a straight girl who likes to make out with girls when she's drunk, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Carmen's birthday is August 3rd and her hometown is Boston, Massachusetts; she loves it there, but she also adores traveling and is quick to find herself at home just about anywhere.

Carmen is normal height and weight, standing at 5'7 and weighing about 130 pounds. Her frame is athletic yet curvy; she loves to go for runs, and it it how she gets most of her exercise. She isn't a fanatic, however, and lets her weight lie where it wants to naturally.

People say that liars either want to manipulate or get attention and for Carmen, both are true. She is a liar, and a compulsive one at that. She doesn't tell very many people about her condition, but most who spend lots of time around her figure it out on their own. She's been lying since she could speak, and she's spent all that time perfecting the art, but eventually her stories will start to show incongruences. At first, she may be able to smooth them over with another lie, but eventually they will be too much to overlook and the person whom she's lying to will figure out about the whole thing. This is part of the reason why she doesn't like to get very close to people. Carmen loves social interaction, yes, and she's a very amiable person, but she's afraid of actual commitment because she is incapable of getting close to someone without the foundation of their relationship being built on her lies about herself.

Carmen is a hardworking and goal-oriented person. If she sees something she wants, she will get it. Socially, this means that she will lie and manipulate her way there, but with scholastic or career achievements, this means that she is willing to put in the hours of grueling work needed to see her goals achieved. She can sometimes become obsessed with the goal and forget to enjoy the journey, but she finishes everything she starts and is a very good worker, individually or in a team.

Carmen is a bit of a flirt, but she is also good at picking up on social cues. She will flirt with anyone she finds attractive, but at the first inclination that they aren't interested, she backs off. If she has a genuine crush on someone, cultivated over a sustained platonic relationship with the person, she is more persistent, but in terms of flings and hook-ups, she knows when to throw in the towel. Flirtatious isn't one of the first way that someone would describe her, but it is symptomatic of her general love for people and social interactions. Her skill at picking up social cues does not only apply to romantic situations; Carmen is very perceptive and can adapt to almost any situation. This trait is assisted by her willingness to lie to fit in-- it works. She's simultaneously a social butterfly and a social chameleon, able to fit into any situation into which she is thrown.

Carmen is intelligent and perceptive, not only of social situations but also academically. She finds an odd calmness in solving math equations or extracting DNA. She likes STEM because it's constant, unchanging, universal. She didn't join the scientific field for anybody else, like a lot of her peers did. Not for her parents or her friends. Just for herself.

Her priorities lie squarely with her own wellbeing; she has been called selfish time and time again, especially when her lies are discovered, but she has never thought of it that way. She thinks about her prioritization as a defense mechanism, an independence which makes her stronger. She makes many friends but few close ones, so her priorities don't lie in friendship, and she isn't very close with her family. Charity has always seemed to Carmen as a way to pat oneself on the back and though she occasionally gives, it does not motivate her. So she has learned to focus on the one thing that will stay with her forever: herself. She feels that, especially because of her lying, nobody else truly knows her, so as her only real friend, she takes every opportunity to pamper herself. This isn't meant literally (with manicures and days at the spa), but rather through the aforementioned unrelenting fulfillment of her wishes and drive to achieve her goals.

Carmen was born in Boston, Massachusetts to Margaret and Jonathan Washington, who already had three boys, aged 2, 3, and 5. She was their little bundle of joy, an answer to Margaret's prayers for a girl, and she was accordingly doted upon. Her older brothers, as most small children do when they gain a new sibling, became jealous of this intruder, stealing away all of their mom's kisses and their dad's tickles. Even as a newborn, Carmen's brothers were constantly competing with her to gain attention. They would misbehave to steal back their parent's attention, sometimes taking Carmen from her crib and hiding her around the house. When she got older, this behavior didn't stop, but it instead took a different, less juvenile form. As she got older and stopped needed special care, her brothers turned to physical attacks. They would hit her, hold her head under in their pool, and, on several occasions, break her bones. The worst part for Carmen was that her new vulnerability due to her injuries didn't focus parental attention her direction; instead, it seemed that her brothers' antics were working. Her parents spent more time with her brothers, trying to discipline them, and Carmen was forgotten. And since it worked for them, they kept doing it, and Carmen kept getting left behind. Her therapist thinks that's why she developed her compulsion to lie; it was a cry for attention and control in an environment that refused to acknowledge her as a person.

Because of this struggle, Carmen was always very dedicated. With everything that she did, she tried to be a stand-out. This especially applied in school, an area where her brothers were mediocre at best. For 364 days of the year, her brothers were the focus of attention in the Washington household, but on report card day, she finally felt like the good and admired child she'd always wanted to be. She moved into the advanced learning program at her elementary school, which fed into the one at her middle school, and for high school, her parents sent her to a private school with a better academic program than the one she'd been attending. It was there that her love for science really blossomed; there was a very good lab in every science classroom, unlike the crappy ones at the local high, and the teachers were genuinely passioned about their subjects. She particularly became enamored with biology sophomore year, and went on to take all of the AP biology-related classes at the school.

She's always thought her social life to be very important to her physical and mental health (especially since she didn't have any friends at home), so no matter how hard she was working, Carmen always made time in between her study breaks to go to the mall or a party. She was somewhat of a lone wolf who travelled from friend group to friend group, but she wasn't lonely in any sense of the word. Instead, she was well-known throughout the school and could find a friend in nearly any circle of people.

It was during high school that Carmen discovered her sexuality. It never bothered her very much; she just accepted it as a new facet of herself and told her parents as soon as she admitted it to herself. Her brothers mocked her and called her a dyke, but she didn't care. She'd endured much worse from them.

It was also during high school that Carmen's compulsion got severe. It used to be a fib here or a lie there, but it soon passed that she lied more than she told the truth. Her friends noticed sooner than her parents, because she spent the minimum amount of time with them possible, but eventually they caught on. At first they were annoyed and told her not to lie, reprimanding her by taking away her phone or grounding her. But the more they punished her, the nastier her lies got. She told elaborate lies to cover up her past lies which would appease them for a while, but when they found out, they got even angrier. They threatened to pull her out of her private school, and she promised to change, but it never happened. Their anger turned to concern, and they sent her to a therapist where she was diagnosed with compulsive lying. She was glad for the help and her lying got better. She doesn't lie about everything anymore, but it never completely went away.

Carmen's junior year, she decided to apply to UCLA with a major in biology; even though her last brother had gone off to college, she wanted to get as far away from her family as possible. When she got in she was happy, but not surprised; her grades were the best they could be, she'd worked her ass off on her essays, and she'd never wanted anything worse. She packed her bag, kissed her mom goodbye at the airport, and flew to California. When she stepped off the air and was greeted by a gust of warm wind, she knew that she'd made the right choice, and she smiled up at the blue sky.

Through UCLA, she got an unpaid internship her freshman year at a laboratory; due to her good work ethic, she got promoted to a paid intern starting her sophomore year. Carmen stayed in a dorm for her freshman and sophomore years, but by her junior year, she wanted new experiences and to meet new people, so she moved into the apartment complex to start a new chapter of her life.

Since his time in the City of Angels, Los Angeles, he had been working local modeling gigs along with some acting gigs, too. There was a little time for some fun in his life but now that it was the weekend, Ashton knew that he needed to add a little fun to his life. Being a somewhat popular name around Los Angeles meant something to some people and it did to Ashton. He couldn't go down the street without someone recognizing him from a billboard that was posted up around the area or just his face and aura alone would attract guys and girls. Ashton was planning on throwing one of the biggest parties for the tenants of Evergreen Heights and whoever else decided to show their faces at The Loft Club tonight.

After a day on the phone and spending his day at the club, making sure everything was ready for the party, he went back to his apartment to get ready. The previous week, Ashton had placed invitations in everyone's mailbox that lived within the confides of the area so they had plenty of time to set their schedule and prepare themselves - Like buy another extravagant outfit or whatever. He showered, lathing his body with his new Axe body wash, Kilo then stepped out of the shower and paraded around the apartment for a bit in a towel before deciding on an outfit.

Since he was going to be sort of shirtless tonight, since the party was a black light party, he just decided to wear a pair of his Cargo shorts, Khaki in color and a pair of Polo Sperry's, which were light brown. Adorning his upper body was nothing more than a t-shirt that read M O D E L in big, bold lettering then reviewed himself over in the mirror before going back to the bathroom to brush his teeth and apply a small dose of cologne to his wrists and neck.

Another long look over in the mirror, Ashton was ready and he walked into roommate's room, without knocking. "Hey, I'm heading out to the party. Need a ride?" He'd ask him while pulling out his phone and sending out a few texts to people that he was close to.

To: Gennie
R u having a fashion emergency and need assistance? LOL. C u @ da party, yeah?


After sending out the messages and hearing roommate's reply, Ashton went out to the parking lot and waited inside of his 2016 Xterra, which was navy blue in color. He'd wait there in case someone indeed needed a ride and turned on the radio while he waited.

CARMEN WASHINGTON
hex code: #8AA37B

Carmen finished applying her lipstick and smiled at herself in the bathroom mirror. That was the last piece of her makeup, and now her look was complete. She'd been to countless parties in her life, but each one still got her excited like it was her first. She loved everything about clubs: the socialization, the drugs, the music, the dancing, the happy feeling. She bounced on her toes a little bit as the excitement settled in, and then she grabbed her phone off of her bedside table and put in her earbuds. She put The Black Album by Jay-Z on shuffle since it, and rap in general, always helped to boost her already high spirits. She padded out of her room on bare feet and into the front foyer. It took her a while to decide on a pair of heels, but she eventually picked a nude pair, her favorites, and slipped them on. They made her ass look great, and they were the first pair she'd ever owned. She pulled out her phone to check her dark eye makeup one last time before slipping it back into her purse.

Carmen left her apartment and almost closed the door behind her. On last thought, she poked her head back into the room and yelled "I'm going to Ashton's party!", hoping that her roommate heard. She closed the door and started to walk down the stairs. Just in case he didn't hear, she pulled her phone out of her purse and shot Tom a text on her way outside.

To: Tom
going to ashton's party!!! couldn't find you, you gonna come too?

Carmen was planning to walk to the bus station and take it to the club, but even after descending the stairs, her heels were beginning to rub her toes raw and it was chillier outside than she'd anticipated. Not that it was cold by any definition of the word, it never was in Los Angeles, but her dress wasn't exactly conservative. It was a low-cut, strapless red dress, long enough to cover her ass but tight enough not to leave anything to the imagination. There was enough room to dance comfortably in, but walking for a long time would just be uncomfortable. She began to dread the walk.

Carmen spotted Ashton in the parking lot and thought that hitching a ride with him would make a perfect plan B. They weren't friends, but they did wave at each other whenever they passed, and Ashton was something of a local celebrity. He would be impossible not to recognize. Carmen didn't have anything against him and was never one to not talk to someone in fear of an awkward situation. She sauntered over to his car and knocked on the window, which was rolled down a little bit.

"Nice music," she said, a little loudly so that she could be heard over the pumping bass. "Hey, this is a little weird, but could you drive me to the club? I totally want to go to your party, but my shoes are a fuckin' pain." She shrugged in a 'what-can-you-do' way and smiled a little bit at him, leaning against the car. She really hoped that he would say yes based on the truth, because a whole host of lies were bubbling up at her tongue, just waiting to be released. And she knew that they would surface if it meant that she didn't have to walk to the bus.

Austin silently groaned at his roommate's voice. "Hey, I'm heading out to the party. Need a ride?" the male groaned more and rolled out of his bed, somewhat fell onto the floor. His dark blondish/brown hair was stuck up in all twists and ends, as he would open his eyes. "Uh....sure. Just give me a few minutes to get changed." he spoke with a deeper voice than normal. Shit, what time was it? He didn't even know. He would silently move from his floor to upwards and the bathroom. He would look at himself in the mirror, somewhat attractive in other people's eyes. His dark gold eyes would clearly be a bit more darker in result of his laziness. He would strip his clothes then walk into the shower to take a quick one.

"God...why am I going? I hate people..." the male thought as the somewhat hot water came rushing down his skin. He would silently stare at the drain, the water going down. Swirling down like life. He moved his hands to turn the faucet off. He would silently move out of the shower.

His somewhat built body would move towards his dresser, where he took out a pair of boxers that has the words Kiss me on his crotch. It was a......long story. He silently paused before trying to decide what he would wear. He figured to text Carmen and see.

~To Carmax~
Hey, my dear, do you have any idea what I should wear? I don't really know what do wear for these types of things.

He honestly didn't, the most he knew was a wedding for one of his numerous cousins. He didn't really even know what to do then. But he sighed and decided to text Ashton and tell him he was on his way down after he chose and outfit.

~To the Roommate~
I gotta choose an outfit then I'll be right down.

He would sit on his bed, and sigh. Awaiting responses from either one.

Truthfully, Tom did not know why he had decided to go to the party tonight. He wasn't much of a people person. Don't get him wrong, he did have a social life, but he preferred small groups of people to a large mass of bodies pressing up against each other in an orgy of noise and lust. Still, he supposed he did not have anything to do this night and he did not necessarily feel like holing himself in his room and playing on his Xbox One until he fell asleep.

Hearing his roommate's voice, he said nothing as he finished dressing himself, knowing that she was most likely already out the door. He looked at himself in a mirror. It was a simple, nondescript outfit. He was never one to keep up with fashion. With a smile, he made his way out of his apartment, planning on taking his new corolla to the club. Hearing the familiar voice of his roommate, he smiled slightly.

"You know, if you had waited a few minutes, I would have offered to give you a ride," he told her with a slight grin.
