|Personality| Elijah is often soft spoken though you'll find he is very friendly and sociable. He's quick to form opinions of people based on first impressions, but once you get close to him, you'll realize he's quite down to earth. He struggles with how others see him and though he'd never admit it, he really cares about what people think of him. He likes to laugh and joke around a lot, and he'll often hide his insecurities with his humour.

Though he won't admit it, Elijah Walker is quite the hopeless romantic. He can become quite attached to those he cares about but he'll always respect your privacy and never be the "clingy boyfriend" you see in the movies. He's in love with the idea of falling fast and hard for someone, and often his affection for others can blind his rational thoughts. Because of this, he's easily manipulated but if he realizes what's going on, he'll hate the person who's manipulating him. He hates being toyed with, and because he's so trusting and easy-going, it's one of his main weaknesses.

He's always been academically focused through out his years of schooling. Elijah is naturally competitive, and he'll give his all to whichever cause he devotes himself too. Grades are a huge priority for Elijah, and he tends to get upset if his evaluations are less than satisfactory. He can often lose sight of his values when it comes to his competitiveness, and he's quick to apologize in these situations. He can't stand longstanding feuds, and so despite his pride, he'll often clear the air first just to end things.

He's a big goof ball, and likes to flirt and joke around often. His grandparents used to joke that they were sure sarcasm was Elijah's first language. Sometimes he can go too far with his jokes and not recognize the wrong in them, meaning he often needs reminders. He's a playful guy and can come off childish sometimes, but he believes a dull personality makes for a dull life, and he can't imagine living a life less than exciting.

|Place of origin| Lake Placid, New York

|History| Elijah was born and raised in upstate New York. His father is Jewish, while his mother is of German and Dutch ancestry. His father was a wealthy businessman while his mother was a seamstress. He attended a private school where he was an excellent student as well as a star athlete. Despite this, Elijah wasn't exactly popular and he kept to himself most of the time. His calling was swimming, and he'd regularly participate in swim meets. It was around the time that he turned twelve when he realized he might like guys. He started to take interest in one of his fellow team mates and they became fast friends. His parents were glad to see Elijah had a close friend and the two regularly hung out outside of school.

One evening, Elijah was waiting for his parents after practice. His friend was there too, and just as his parents walked in, they shared a kiss. Elijah didn't see his parents come in, but they were furious and disgusted. Elijah was dragged out of the building and promptly sent to Vancouver to live with his grandparents soon after. He was heartbroken and confused, convinced that he was damaged. His transition to life in Vancouver was rough but luckily his grandparents were accepting of him. He never talked about his sexuality after the incident, and in fact, he tried forcing himself to be strictly straight. It didn't work, and nonetheless, he hasn't discussed it ever since.

Elijah discovered his interest in Drama when he was fifteen. His guidance counsellor suggested he try out for the school play. When Elijah landed the lead, he was hooked. He fell in love with the fact that he could be anyone on stage. Drama became his outlet and he started spending most of his free time in the drama room. He became fast friends with the school's resident drama geeks, and they appreciated his humour and general company.

Throughout high school, he had limited contact with his parents. His father refused to talk to him while his mother would only talk to him twice a month. Elijah struggled to cope with this alienation, but he adjusted to it over time. He enjoyed spending time with his grandparents, and he'd regularly invite them to his plays. Elijah didn't consider majoring in Drama until the week before submissions closed. He applied on a whim and was ecstatic when he found out he got in. He felt uneasy knowing he'd be leaving his grandparents and moving closer to his distant parents, but it was a sacrifice he was willing to make. Despite all the opportunities Vancouver offered, it wasn't New York. Elijah moved back to New York not long after his high school graduation.

So begins...

She sat down upon the steps that were located within the heart of Time Squares with a smile. She had finally made it to the city that she has always dreamed of being in, which was New York City. She looked at all the people that had past by and gathered up all around her as she couldn't believe how busy the streets were early this morning. Stacey finished her breakfast and placed it back in the bag, balling it up as she grabbed her coffee.

As she walked down the stairs, she tossed the bag in the trash can but missed along a gentleman picked it up for her. She thanked him with a smile while she sipped on her coffee and walked away. The campus of the academy wasn't too far from the square as that was what she loved the most about it. When she needed to get away, that was one place you'll be able to find her.

While walking back into the lobby of her dorm building, she saw a few of the other girls have already settled in. Yesterday was their first day back as they had orientation and got to know where their classes were. The male dorm was within walking distance across from the female's dorm but they couldn't be in each other's dormitory area after ten o'clock. Stacey's roommate was Masumi and luckily enough, they had a co-joined room with her sister, Zoey and her roommate, Ireland.

She adored both girls and her sister and was extremely happy that they were sharing rooms together. She walked into the dorm room with her coffee in hand, hoping that all the girls were up. "Alright, ladies. Let's get up because you know that today is one of the showcases and I am performing today so I definitely cannot be late." She mentioned with an arrogant smile while she scrambled to get a few necessities and waited for everyone else to get ready. "Oh and are the boys meeting us there or are we going over to get them?" She asked as someone just had to know something about because obviously, she didn't.

Ireland strolled down the street, the latest copy of the New York Times rolled in one hand, a latte in the other. She liked to joke that Starbucks was her religion, and her morning coffee run was quite a religious routine for her. Her friends wouldn't be surprised as they watched her sashay onto campus with her coffee. The girl sipped carefully from her coffee as she crossed the campus towards the door building, trying her best to not spill. She'd had her fair share of slips and spills and she was determined not to make a mess of herself today.

Entering the lobby of the dorm building, she made her way to her room. Her roommate, Zoey, was a likeable girl. She was lucky not to have an awful roommate, and she genuinely enjoyed spending time with the girl. Their room was a co-joined room shared with Zoey's sister, Stacey, and her roommate Masumi. Every day was a party with those girls in tow.

Ireland shrugged off her jacket and hung it up just as Stacey entered the room. Ireland smirked at the girl's coffee, a shared loved between the two. "Alright, ladies. Let's get up because you know that today is one of the showcases and I am performing today so I definitely cannot be late." she said. Ireland rolled her eyes. Typical Stacey. "Yeah, yeah..." Ireland mumbled, sinking into her bed. She'd stay there until Zoey and Masumi were up and running. "Oh and are the boys meeting us there or are we going over to get them?" Stacey asked. Ireland glanced at the girl and shrugged absently. "Why don't you give one of them a call?" Ireland asked, sipping her coffee casually.

Elijah tossed over in his bed, rubbing the sleep from his eyes and letting out a rather loud yawn. "It's already morning? I don't know about you but I was having a pretty exciting dream about one of my lady friends back in Vancouver and let me just say that it is extremely disappointing that such a wonderful dream has been cut short by the arrival of a day such as today." Elijah rambled loudly, his hands covering his eyes as they were still adjusting to the morning light. He let a small grin creep across his face. He loved to be dramatic and what better way to wake up than to exercise his talents?

Elijah sat up in his bed, stretching his arms out and yawning yet again. "Better make some coffee." he said to himself, walking over to the coffee maker that laid on the counter near the door. Elijah believed the key to starting a day off right was in consuming at least one cup of coffee before 8 am. He hoisted himself onto the counter and sat patiently as he waited for the coffee to brew. He noticed his roommate Ricky still laying in bed. Elijah glanced to his left and spotted a pack of plastic utensils. Without a second thought, he shrugged and flung it at his roommate. "Wake up!"he laughed. "We've got places to go and girls to meet."he continued.

Kendrick was lost in his own world, a world filled of sleep and at this moment, there was probably nothing that would be able to wake him. Though that was at least until a certain roommate tossed a plastic fork at him and shouted in his direction for him to wake up. The male sighed and rubbed his eyes before slowly sitting up in the bed. Kendrick glanced over at his alarm clock, seeing that it hadn't gone off that morning for him to do his daily run. "Guess I'll go for my run after Stacey's showcase," he spoke aloud to himself as he climbed out of bed and stepped into the kitchen and started making his morning smoothie.

"Have you heard anything about any plays that would need any backup dancers in the drama department?" Kendrick questioned. Although Kendrick was never all that interested in the drama department, he did enjoy the dancing and even if it were to be in some sort of musical or something, then he'd deal with it. After all, if he wanted to become a professional dancer he needed to get some experience in all kinds of dancing. Even if it meant performing in some dumb musical. Of course he would never judge any of his friends, such as Elijah for his passions because that would be wrong but he could have an opinion, right?

Kendrick finished blending his smoothie and poured it into a cup before taking a few sips from it. "Any idea what time this thing starts?" he questioned as he leaned against the wall, taking in the surroundings of his messy dorm room. Something needs to be done with this room, he thought to himself before walking across the room towards his dresser. He pulled out a black button down and a nice pair of jeans before pulling them over his body. The male reached for his hat and placed it on his head, put on some axe body spray, slid his shoes on and reached for his wallet before heading out the door. "I'm dropping by to see the girls. If you don't stop by I'll give you the rest of the details once I figure them out and we can meet up at the showcase. Later man," he stated and closed their door behind him.

Kendrick walked across campus to the dormitory sitting across the lawn from his and stepped into the building's front doors and walked through the hallways towards the dorm that held his four favorite girls at the academy. The male came to a halt in front of their door and he knocked, "Girls, it's Kendrick.

Stacey looked at Ireland as she wasn't very excited to hear about the showcase, it seemed. She sat down with the roll of her eyes then looked at Ireland again, mimicking her words. As she searched for one of the guys numbers in her phone. She looked up at her sister, Zoey as she smiled towards her. "Great." She gave a thumbs up to no one in particular then looked again as her sister entered the room, dressed a little bit than before.

"I'd love to party to celebrate my win but if you're going to get drunk then maybe you should sit out tonight." She said bluntly as she didn't really want to get into an argument with her sister early this morning. She jumped slightly as a knock came over their dorm as she saw Masumi was up and going towards it. It was Kendrick. Stacey practically jumped out of her seat and scurried over towards him, giving him a small hug as she smiled then broke the hug.

"Alright, losers." She teased towards everyone present as she gathered up her belongings then eyed everything. "Please do not be late. I will be watching." Stacey gave them an evil eye look with a smile though before she exited her dorm and the building, going over towards the area where the stage was being set up. While she waited for her turn to rehearse, she pulled out her phone and sent a text to Kyle and Elijah in a group message.

To: Eli and Ky
Both of you guys better not be late today. >:D


She sent the message then went up stage so that she can rehearse her song. She rehearsed and rehearsed again then turned towards the people that were going to make her performance better as she thanked them again. Now all she had to do was wait until the showcase began so that she could wow the audience that was slowly starting to form.

Elijah nodded and responded to Kendrick's questions. He averted his gaze as Kendrick dressed and waved him off as his roommate announced he'd drop by the girls. "Sounds good, see you then!" he said, a smile on his face. He lowered himself off the counter, patting absently at his pants and then fixing himself up a cup of coffee. The boy poured in two sugar packets and watched his coffee change from a dark brown to a milky chocolate brown as he poured in his cream. Elijah took a slow sip before setting his cup on the counter.

The next thing that crossed his mind was the difficult decision of picking out an outfit. Elijah wasn't one to dress to impress, but he didn't like feeling like one of those people of Walmart zombies who strolled around in their spaghetti strap tank tops and flannel pajama pants. The boy crossed his room to his closet and grabbed a couple garments, quickly sliding on a pair of jeans, a white graphic tee and his black bomber jacket. He ran his hand through his soft waves, tousling his hair slightly. He smirked at his reflection in the mirror and regarded himself for a moment. "Damn do I look good." he said to himself.

Elijah grabbed his backpack off the couch and slid on his scuffed up all black converse, which were frayed a bit at the edges. "Better get moving before they send out a search party" He laughed, making his way down the hall. Elijah was barely out of the dorm when he received a group sms from Stacey.

To: Eli and Ky
Both of you guys better not be late today. >:D


Elijah rolled his eyes and quickly sent a reply.

To: Stacey and Ky
Me? Late? Wouldn't dream of it. Can't upstage my bestie on her big day with a fashionably late entrance! Although I can't say Ky won't steal the show with his bombastic personality. :P


Elijah slid his phone into his pocket and jogged to the stage. A couple minutes later, he snuck around to backstage and waited for Stacey behind a swath of curtains. He planned to scare her when she was done on stage, but he couldn't help but admire her practicing. "Promise to remember me when you're famous? I'd like a dedication to your best friend, Elijah Walker, when you headline at Madison Square Garden." he said, flashing his signature smile.

Kyle seemed to have gotten there before the famous Stacey herself. He took the opportunity to rehearse with all the equipment. He managed to get through it twice and he was more than confident than his performance. There was still some time to kill before there was a dire need to be ready on stage. Venturing out of the area, he went to the cafe close to the school. Kyle would need food or he would not be able to function. While standing in line he received a message. It was a group chat, Stacey seemed to have started. He rolled his eyes playfully before another message came up from Elijah. That message caused him to laugh. His friends were both quiet interesting creatures. Kyle sent a quick reply.
;Stacey, Elijah
No need to flatter me Eli. And I physically cannot be late or they won't let me perform.
Message sent and he ordered himself a chocolate chip muffin. It was handed to him right away and he paid for it. With headphones in, he headed back to the stage area. He came just in time to see Stacey rehearsing. She was amazing. Everyone knew that of course. There was some kind of strange honor with being able to perform on stage with her. This was one of the few times there were going to be performing on the same stage. Kyle took a bite of his muffin and thought about going to wish her luck, until he felt someone wrapping their arms around his waist. Turning around, he smiled at his best friend Zoey. "Hey wow. You are early." He teased. He could only assume that he was early due to her sister being in the showcase.

"Good luck going up against Stacey. I've heard her rehearsing all night and she killed it. Though, I'm sure you've got something up your sleeve" Kyle chuckled a bit and offered up some of his muffin to her. "I'm trying not to see this as a competition. I'm just gonna do my best. But...I secretly hope I do way better." Kyle smiled and ate some more of his muffin. "I'm expecting you in the front row acting as my cheerleader, Zo." He added almost as a stern warning. Though he was only joking of course.

Sumi smile at Kendrick as she let him in. "Thanks Ricky" She said as she continued messing with the camera settings. It was always important to have the settings ready before it was time to take the real pictures. She was only half listening to what was going on. Stacey was scolding Zoey on her alcohol consumption as usual. Then she pretty much warned the group to not be late before skipping away, blonde hair flowing in the wind. Masumi shook her head in amusement. Everyone that has ever been friends with Stacey knew better than to even try to be a second late. Sumi was going to on time because she had a job. Taking pictures o f the showcase. She wasn't even going to have a seat. She would be wondering backstage and then front stage taking pictures of everyone and everything. Right after Stacey left, Kendrick and Zoey followed, leaving Masumi and Ireland. A sigh escaped her. "No no. Go ahead. We'll catch up." she said jokingly. Turning to her friend Ireland, she snapped a candid picture of her to make sure the picture came out nice. It did. Sumi placed the camera in the bag and then stood up. "Come on. We need good seats." She waited for Ireland before leaving.

It didn't take long to get to campus and head to where all the performers were gathering. It seemed that Stacey had just finished rehearsing. Elijah was up there talking to her. Kyle was on the main floor talking with Zoey. Pulling her camera back out, it was time to take photos. "The last thing I wanna do is ditch you Irie, but duty calls." Reluctantly, she left her friend and started taking pictures of everything going on.
