Distinct Markings
Scars: AJ has been caught up in a few fights. One of them earned him a scar across his lower abdomen. Another, more deadly fight, earned him a scar lining the left side of his back. Other then that, no more scars.

Piercings: None. He doesn't believe in sticking anything through any part of himself.

Tattoos: He has a tattoo of his favorite movie title, Clerks, wrapped around his right bicep.


Dreams
Dream:AJ is in the journalism business, but he has always wanted to be a nightly news anchor. To finally be reporting the news to everyone around to listen.

Secrets
Secret: He has never met his father. He doesn't want anyone to know because his father was arrested for murder before AJ was born.

Secret:Not much of a huge secret, but AJ has only ever been in one relationship during high school, which lasted a month. It led to sex, but he has never tried to get another woman because he thought it would always end badly.[/i]

Fears
Fear: Being caught cheating: He has never been in more than one relationship at one time, but New York City and the apartment building bring new possibilities. Being caught would embarrass him to death.

Fear:Being fired from his job. AJ could not gain the confidence to get another job, and would probably fall into a deep depression

Religion
He is a simple Irish Catholic

Personality
AJ thinks he is better than most. Well at journalism. He won't admit to failure when not getting a news story before anyone else. When it comes to dating and being around friends, he is actually quiet. But when he enters the news room all that quiet boy nonsense is put to rest and he becomes a big jackass egomaniac. AJ is also very friendly. Even though he is quiet, he doesn't mind making a new acquaintance. He also looks forward to his rich future, but that might not happen.

Family Tree
AJ has an older sister who is 32. Other than that, his mother his still around, and so is his father. The only issue is that his father is still in prison.

History
AJ was born on February 5th in a hospital right outside Boston. He was born to just his mother because his father was put in prison for many years only a few month before for murder. He lived a normal, fatherless life with his mother and older sister. In his high school years AJ got his first camera and would go out at night and hunt down accidents reported to the police. He later bought a police scanner with the money he got from selling his tapes to the local news network. This became part of his current career. One other accomplishment in high school was getting his first girlfriend, but only for a month. AJ and his girlfriend had sex, but it wasn't all he expected. He moved on from her. He was also very interested in writing. He wrote a screenplay in College, and filmed the movie which he showed at a college film festival. After college he decided he wanted to be a journalist. He did major in communications. He moved out to New York City and moved into an apartment building and made his new life.

So begins...

OOC: I went ahead and accepted everyone's work in progresses mainly because I really wanted to get this rp started. Though there are only 2 males in the rp. So if anyone would be kind enough to play as a male as well, it would be really appreciated. If not we can deal with just the two.

Tate found himself making his way into the Watergate Apartments for the very first time. He's lived in the city for a few months now but this was the first time he was ever able to live on his own. Just a couple weeks ago his brother finally kicked Tate out on his own because he felt that it was time he moved on with his life. True Tate had a valid reason as to not wanting to do this but it was something that needed to be done.

Tomorrow Tate would be starting his first day as a construction worker in order for him to start his new life. He just hoped that everything would go alright. The male found himself walking through the halls, looking for apartment number 159. Upon finding his apartment, he unlocked the door before beginning to bring boxes into his apartment from his vehicle just outside the main lobby.

This was definitely going to take a good few trips, he thought to himself as he began carrying the first boxes into the apartment building and to his room. Tate couldn't believe he told Michael he would be fine carrying the boxes into the apartment by himself. With the rate he was going, it was going to take at least an hour to get them all out of his vehicle and into his apartment.

Miranda sat in front of her computer screen in the cafeteria of the apartment complex working on her advice column as she ate breakfast. She couldn't believe how popular her column was in New York City when she has only been the author of it for two months now. Though she had a feeling that if anyone knew she was the author, people would be raising questions, especially with her erotic book that had most recently become a national sensation on the internet.

Every time she went out into town she would hear people talking about her book, Undressed. It was already bad enough that her apartment neighbors seemed to be interested in the book as well, but she just hoped that nobody would find out she is Author X or the columnist. Her life would utterly become destroyed.

Miranda's personal life is in both the book and her columns at times and if anyone close to her found out about a few of these things, they would definitely either disown her or be asking some serious questions.

Location:Apartments

AJ parked his car in the apartment building's parking lot. He had just returned from a simple corner store robbery that was reported over the police scanner. He rushed over to the store hoping that there was more than just a simple robbery, but the police arrived on scene only seconds after AJ got his camera equipment put together and started filming. It was a waste of his time. No real crimes happen during the day. He still has his job at the New York Times, but he hasn't written an article in awhile.

The pollution filled his lungs as AJ stepped out of his car holding his camera and slammed the door in slight anger. He made his way to the cafeteria inside to get a coffee. He put his camera down on an empty table and grabbed a cup and filled it with black coffee. AJ slowly returned to the table and fell down on the seat. He sipped his coffee as he reviewed the few seconds of robbery footage. His gaze wandered away from the LCD screen on his camera and landed on a woman working on a computer. He shook his head and focused back on the footage.

Just as Tate set down a box in the lobby, he noticed there was a girl standing there before him with a basket of laundry in her hands. The male listened as she spoke and just shrugged his shoulders with a slight laugh.

"I'm Tate, I'm in 159 and help would honestly be accepted if you're willing to help a complete stranger tote boxes up the numerous stairs. I tried to go for the elevator, but it seems it's out of business," he responded as he slid his hands into his back pockets as he always did when just standing there talking to someone. It was an old habit that seemed to come as if out of nowhere these past couple of years.

With a soft sigh he glanced back down at her laundry and spoke, "Though, if you would prefer to do your laundry that would be fine. I'm perfectly capable of doing this myself, it'll just take longer." Though at that moment he happened to glance at her, finding that she was a bit attractive and in a normal everyday kind of way. Not like many of the other women in New York who were having botox and other strange chemicals pumped into their bodies to make them look "prettier or have things bigger". Honestly, that never seemed to settle with him. The way most of those women look just scares him if he were being honest.

Miranda had been so sucked into her work that she hadn't even noticed one of her neighbors step into the cafeteria and just glance over at her until she sighed and leaned back in her chair, removing her fingers from the keyboard to just stare at the screen with a puzzled look upon her face.

Her boss sent her an email, telling her that she needed to write an article for one of the employees that had been fired that day and she only had six hours to get it done. This was in an area that she had no clue about and it just agitated her. How was she going to get this article done in six hours when she has to do research on it before even starting.

Finally Miranda stood to her feet and refilled her coffee cup as she spoke, "Having a good morning AJ?" she questioned as she began to put creamer and sugar into her coffee before stirring it a bit and taking a seat back at her computer and continued to just stare at the screen as she sipped from the hot liquid.

Tate just smiled softly at the female and began leading her up the stairs and through the halls. "So far I'm liking it here," he stated as they finally made it to his hall and began walking past the many doors before arriving to room 159 and stepped inside. "Place the box anywhere and also, thanks for the help," he stated as he set his box down and stood there waiting for Molly to set the boxes she had down somewhere before starting on his way back down to the lobby to get the other boxes. Hopefully it wasn't going to take too much longer. Especially since this was taking time out of Molly's day to do something that she shouldn't have to be doing in the first place, but he did appreciate the help.

"So, do you know of anyone I may have to worry about in this building?" he questioned, trying to fill the silence that was now engulfing them into its abyss.

Miranda immediately felt sorry for AJ. She knew that his job tended to be a bit rough and his money only comes with every job he gets. She sighed and shrugged her shoulders, "Eh, my boss told me I had to write an article for one of the employees she had just fired and it's about the most recent football game. I don't know anything about football, let alone who was even playing," she stated with a bit of confusion in her voice.

Miranda took a sip from her coffee once more before just deciding to close her laptop. She was getting tired of staring at the screen, just reminded her about this article she had to write which she knew nothing about. At that time she heard the talk show that was on the television in the cafeteria beginning to talk about Author X, the author of the book titled Undressed. Her ears perked up at the sound and began listening.

Her book was still the talk of everything and everyone has been talking about a sequel, which she honestly thought about writing but couldn't seem to think about anything to write for it. All she knew was that she was working on the sequel, it would come ou eventually and hopefully her identity would still be a secret by that time. If anyone she knew found out she was writing erotic novels, it would be very awkward.

AJ thought about what Miranda said about knowing nothing about football. He does not know much, but enough to get a simple article out. "Hey... I could help you write that football article. I'm not a football buff, but I know enough to understand what happened at the football game. If you need help with it you could stop by my place and we could write it."

His offer was plain and simple. AJ thought that if Miranda told her boss that she got a little help, maybe AJ could possibly get a chance at filling in the job position at her work. After he spoke he looked at her, but noticed she was listening to the television. He turned his head and saw the talk show host showing off that new, and popular erotic novel. "Can you believe that? They're parading that book around like its the bible. I understand it's popular, but no need to worship it." He poured the last bit of coffee into his mouth and trashed the cup in the trashcan close by."Did you get a chance to read that book?"

Jared looked at his boss and shrugged his shoulders. "Jared I love the work you did for the papers latest comic. Keep them comin'."

He smiled at his boss. "No problem sir thanks for the thumbs up." With that he began to take his stuff and went home. He made his way to the apartments and noticed a couple of people carrying boxes up the stairs.

With that he began to walk up behind them and smiled. "Hello, Did you need any help?"

Location: Swimming Pool-Cafeteria


"Thats it ladies work those muscles!" Her gym teacher was adorbs. She already was falling in love with her. She didn't know if anyone would ever be that lovely for her but man oh man. She was sure lusting over her.

With that she got out of the gym and went swimming. She began to dance to her favorite Latino Music and began to dance around and around. When she was finally finished with it she grabbed her towel, dried off and began to make her walk back to the apartments.

When she got there she had her book and purse with her and she sat at a table and began to read her book by this Lord X person or something. Anyway she loved it.

With that she put it away and went and bought some food and noticed a guy sit down. With that she looked at him. She walked up to him and cleared her throat. "Can I give you some company?"

AJ looked over at Arias as she sat down "Hey Arias. Nice to see you. How have you been?" He smiled pleasantly as she made herself known to Miranda and himself. He then focused back on his conversation with Miranda, but he didn't mind Arias joining in "I've read a bit of the book. I just wanted to get the gist of it and I have to say it's... pretty hot." AJ chuckled to himself. He spoke the truth. He doesn't usually lie about anything. He knows that Arias is a lesbian so he has nothing to worry about there, but he didn't know about Miranda. He just wanted to say something that could attract her to himself. He isn't one know to get girlfriends a lot, or at all, but he wanted to see if he could spark a light.

AJ took his camera off the table and close the LCD screen and placed the camera under his seat. He knew there was a crime or breaking news to go out and film, but he enjoys having some conversation time in his day even though it means he is letting the money of the footage slip through his fingers.

"I've read a bit of the book. I just wanted to get the gist of it and I have to say it's... pretty hot." Miranda was honestly shocked at AJ's response but along with the shock she felt good about the book. If a guy said that it was hot then it had to be good. With erotic novels it was hard for a guy to actually enjoy them more than it was for women.

Miranda smiled and glanced up at him, thinking that maybe, just maybe this could be the guy for her. But she just sighed and looked down at her watch. "Sorry, but I've gotta run. I've got a couple errands I need to run." she stated as she stood up from her chair and grabbed her laptop and began making her way to the stairs.

Not only did she have to go ahead and turn in her advice column, but she had to go pick up her medication and do some grocery shopping or she would end up going hungry for the next couple of days.

AJ shrugged when she left. He didn't mind her leaving at all. He just blinked and turned to Arias "So I guess it's just us. What's new with you?" He didn't wanna be rude and just leave her alone, but he doesn't have much to speak to her about. He was never really close with anyone in the building, but he still considers Arias an acquaintance. AJ had no idea what she thought of him, but he doesn't mind if she hates him or not. He was like that with people. If someone said they hated him AJ would just dust it off like it was nothing. He would have no contact with that person from that point on, but it never bothered him.
