Rose has no strong feelings either way regarding integration. If the species come together, fine, if they stay segregated, no problem. For Rose, Return to Reality is a chance to take a step out of the shadows and stand in the spotlight for once. Of course, she's also taking part because she thinks it'll be a bit of fun.

|{Personality}|
{Romantic, Ambitious, Competitive, Stubborn, Intelligent, Flirtatious, Manipulative, Self-centered}

All it takes is a shy smile, a flick of the hair, or a subtle shift of the hips and she has your attention. It's in her nature to seek out lovers. In exchange for their devotion and life, Rose offers inspiration. She loves the chase, the thrill of the first kiss, the heartfelt gestures, and the morning cuddles. Rose is a romantic at heart, and yet she's never shied away from a casual fling. She likes to flirt, and it comes relatively easily to her. She'll spend the night for the fun of it, and if she likes you she'll make you an offer that most can't refuse, even if it means your life.

Rose is not just a lover, she's intelligent, competitive, and possesses a strong stubborn streak. She doesn't take well to being put in the corner or treated like an idiot. Challenge her or question her intelligence and she'll stubbornly set her jaw to prove you wrong. Rose thrives in competitive situations, enjoying the need to perform under pressure. She shines in anything musical or artistic, and is surprisingly good with numbers. Her stubborn streak often has her digging her heels in and standing her ground. When she's set her mind to doing something you won't find her easy to budge.

Of course, there is a manipulative side to Rose that few discover. She'll lie to someone's face with a charming smile and not think twice about it or exploit a situation to help herself. She doesn't use abusive tactics, nor would she consider herself a bully. Her actions are merely self-preservation. Rose doesn't like people to see her weaknesses and flaws, so she hides them behind a quick smile and a flirtatious wink. She can be rather self-centered when she wants to be, finding it hard to look past her own difficulties to others' problems. She has a touch of vanity, a natural trait, she believes, for anyone with an ounce of confidence. Yet, it is rare to hear her bragging about herself. Oh, she has no problem proving her talents when challenged, but she isn't quite big-headed enough to feel the need to shout it from the rooftops.

Confidence can only take you so far, especially when every decade or so you lose your most recent love. When Rose loves, she gives her whole heart. The older members of her family will tell you that when Leanan Sidhe take lovers, the affair should always one sided. The lovers give their devotion to the fairies and the fairies become their muse. To fall in love with the being you are feeding from is a sure road to heartbreak. Unfortunately, Rose has yet to learn this. She can't help but become attached, which only leads to heartbreak when her lovers die. Does she feel guilt at their deaths? Not particularly. Sad, yes, but never self-loathing guilt. Self-pity has always been a distasteful trait in Rose's eyes and she rarely indulges in it herself. Besides, a fairy never breaks a contract. She may freely lie to people, but when making a deal her word is as good as law.

|{Quirks | Habits | Oddities}|
She hums to herself \\ Listens to Westlife when she's upset \\ Eats half the dough when baking \\ Breaks into Irish [Gaeilge] when angry

|{Species}|

Leanan sidhes are beautiful women of the Aos Sí (people of the barrow or the fairy folk) who take lovers, gifting said lovers with inspiration in their artistic pursuits. The fairies act as muses for their chosen lovers in exchange for their love and devotion. The lovers, while living exceedingly inspired lives, rarely live long. Madness and premature death are common, for the Leanan sidhe lives on her lover's life.

A Leanan sidhe seeks love. If she is refused, she becomes the individual's slave. If they consent, they become hers and may only escape by finding another to take their place. She does not shape-shift or control the elements. Her power is to inspire others, to be the catalyst to their success. By feeding off the life of a lover she may live forever.


{'She is the Gaelic muse, for she gives inspiration to those she persecutes. The Gaelic poets die young, for she is restless, and will not let them remain long on earth—this malignant phantom.'}

|{Place of Origin}|
Cashel, Ireland

|{History}|
Whenever artists flourish, look to the women on their arm and you will find the source of their inspiration. The beautiful muses of Irish Greats are, without exception, Leanan Sidhe and the best of them are Callans. Roisin was born on the 21st of July, 1976 to a fairy mother and her current human lover. Rionach, as with all the women of her line, was a Leanan Sidhe. Bradan was a young man famed for his poetry who died only a few years after Rose's birth, an early death the payment for inspiration. Rose was too young to understand that her father had died, or indeed to understand why he died. It was only sometime later when she had come into her powers that she finally understood his death. While Rose might have felt disappointment at not having more time with her father, she accepted his death.

Rose's first lover came at the age of 17. The poor boy was a struggling musician who, while a talented guitarist and singer, lacked imagination and creativity in his songs. Rose changed all that. Within a month of meeting the boy had rocketed to stardom, Rose never far from his side. He lasted three years before leaving this world. Rose was heartbroken, he was her first love after all, but eventually she moved on. The next lover stayed with her for ten years before eventually wasting away. As with her first Rose felt her heart break, only to pick up the pieces for the next lover. Of course, she does not love them all. Some are merely passing fancies. For whatever reason, Rose has always found that the ones she's the most attached too live the longest.

Life for Rose has never been particularly rough, other than in regards to love. She has attended premiers, concerts, art openings, and more with her lovers. She never really needed a job of her own, as she was always provided for by her lovers. Photography began as a hobby for the girl. She would take pictures of her lovers and their friends, then landscape, animals... anything that captured her attention. The hobby quickly became a career, one she could do as she moved from lover to lover. She applied for Return to Reality with the idea of having a bit of fun. She's lived with and around artists, musicians, actors, and so forth her entire life, but has always been the muse behind the scenes. The show offers Rose the opportunity to fully focus on herself, rather than be tied to a lover. Well, that and her recent 'break up' left her feeling restless and needing a challenge. She's sure that the show is just what she needs.

|{Family Tree}|
Rionach Callan | Mother | Leanan Sidhe | 459
Bradan Carrick | Father | Mortal | Deceased
Siobhán Callan | Grandmother | Leanan Sidhe | 1520

|{Happiest Memory}|
Most likely her sixth birthday. Rose remembers her mother revealing a beautiful guitar and telling the young girl that it was all hers. Or perhaps her happiest memory would be the summer she spent with a beautiful painter. The girl would paint flowers on Rose's skin before the pair washed the paint off in a nearby lake.

|{Saddest Memory}|
Rose's saddest memory is that of her first lover. His death was her first. She had seen her mother and others of her species inspiring lovers, only for them to die early deaths, yet his death had been her responsibility. She doesn't regret it, after all it's just who she is, but it is undoubtedly a memory that makes her unhappy.

― Albert Einstein

{ In collaboration with ibecameinsane }




For the newbies, their first time seeing the United States is through tinted glass. Flown to the states from
their home countries, the new cast members are gussied up for their big debut and called one at a time to
be interviewed on worldwide television. The lights are blinding, the set is stifling, and the pressure to
impress the crowd is anything but effortless. Meanwhile, the returning cast members wait in the green room
to be called on stage. Ushered on stage onto a four person couch, they’re coaxed into sharing what they’ve
done since season one. They sit together with smiles plastered on their faces as though they’re old friends
when in truth some of them cannot stand one another. Once they’ve been given enough of the limelight,
they’re all ushered into a private jet and flown to the Isles of Scilly.

The streets are filled to the brim by the curious spectators. Unknowing bystanders, which were few and far
between, were confused by the spectacle while others have flown for all corners of their providence just to
see this event unfold in person. Slowly, the vehicles make their way through the crowded road. As the
limousines closer, the flashes of the cameras of the paparazzi intensified. While most entered the luxurious
premises without too much difficulty, others were faced with the usual complications that came with the fame.
Some fanatics pushed themselves against the vehicles screaming the returning cast's names while others tried
to catch a glimpse of the newbies. As usual, the security crew handled the situation accordingly in order to
proceed promptly with the schedule.

They’re in the house gathered into the living room by the producer who captures their attention with a clasp
of his hands as he stands in front of the fireplace. "Alright everyone, tonight marks the first night of season two. We’ve got
our veterans over here-…"
he gestures to the couch on his left where all but one sit and then to his right where they
huddle around as much as possible, "…-and our newbies. For those who don’t know me, my name is Claude Fauré. You may
address me as anything you see fit. Once I assign you to a bedroom, you will be given a roommate and we’ll begin filming. Now-…”"

He goes through the list, telling each member of the cast where they’ll be staying before he pockets his cellphone
and gives them a look of warning. "“The cameras will be rolling at all times. I reiterate: at all times. Some moments may not
make the final cut but everything will be on film. Because the goal of this season is to prove that different species from different
Providences can in fact live in harmony, I would like to respectfully request that you hold yourself at some level of decency."
With one
last grin he snaps his fingers, ushering the cameramen into the room. "Now, you’ll have about half an hour to get your
things settled before the cameras start rolling so use them wisely."

The flight to the USA is long and Rose spends the majority of it either sleeping or chatting with the attractive flight attendant. The flight attendant reminds her of her ex-boyfriend Hunter. Perhaps it's the eyes that do it, or the colour of the hair. It certainly isn't the figure, seeing as her ex was male and the flight attendant is every bit a woman. Of course it might simply be the potential that seems to brim under the young woman's skin. Rose knows if she asks the flight attendant about any hobbies that she'll most likely receive singing as an answer. It was the same for Hunter. Rose helped lift Hunter up to stardom, accompanying him to gigs throughout Ireland. He would was set to tour the world when madness and eventual death took hold. But, that is in the past and Rose is only too happy to look forward to the future. As her plane lands sometime later the flight attendant wishes her luck with the show, and slips her a small piece of paper with her name and number on it. Rose smiles as she walks away, tucking the paper away.

Roisin Callan can't help but grin excitedly as she walks on stage for her interview. She waves happily at the audience who cheer her on, as they have for the cast members before her. Sitting down with the interviewer the first thing Rose has to do is correct the pronunciation of her name. She does so with a smile, making a joke of it. Irish names are difficult to get right, especially for foreigners. Usually she goes by Rose, which is what the interviewer happily calls her rather than try and twist his tongue around her full name. Rose has to admit that she likes being the centre of attention. She simpers and pouts when needed, this isn't the first time Rose has been around this kind of atmosphere after all. Her various lovers over the years have always garnered attention, and she has always been there on the sidelines. Of course, Rose merely mentions that she acts as a muse for her lovers, omitting the price most pay. That knowledge isn't too well-known out of Ireland.

Once the interview has finished Rose and the other cast members are taken to a private jet. The trip is over fairly quickly, at least compared with her flight from Ireland. The limo passes through streets crowded with curious onlookers, eventually entering the house's grounds. The group make there way into the living room, where Claude begins to speak to them. For the veterans this is probably old news, they've already done this before after all. As for Rose, and perhaps her fellow newbies, the speech is new. She listens intently, nodding as Claude emphasises that the cameras will be constantly rolling. As he reads out the roommates Rose glances over to the young man that she will be sharing with, HyunSoo. Rose knows all the veterans as well as a fan of the first season can, and knows the newbies only from their interview.

Across from her Rose notes Aiden's comment to Eleniel, and the other girl's dirty glare and snappy rejection. The Gryphon doesn't seem too phased by it though. He merely sits back on the couch with a wide grin, quirking his eyebrow at Rose when he sees her looking, "She loves me, she just likes to play hard to get." He says with a cocky wink.
"I can see that." Rose replied with a sarcastic smile of her own.
Aiden Young is exactly as he appeared in the first season, that much is strikingly obvious. While he was never Rose's favourite member of the original cast, she did always find his jokes funny. She has no doubt that he will make this season entertaining too.

"Well, this should be fun." Rose says to no one in particular as she stands and faces her new roommate, "I'm Rose, looks like we'll be bunking together.".

After finally getting off the private jet, Hyunsoo took a deep breath, the plane ride had been quite exhausting, never had he ever been on such long plane ride, it was just tiring. After spending 30 minutes in customs, he was able to finally grab his check in bag and move the outside of the airport, at the exit his aunt Jiwoo greeted him. To be honest, he has never met his aunt, Jiwoo before, not that he remembers anyways. His parents had always kept him constrained away from other members of the family, they didn't want him to find out that he was a Gumiho. However in the end, he still did and that pretty much lead to a series of events that he never wanted to mention ever again.

"Hello, Hyunsoo it's great to see you, look at you, you've grown so much, the last time I saw you, you were a baby," Hyunsoo was a bit shocked to be exact, but then just nodded his said and quietly said "Hello, Aunty"
"Now we mustn't stay too long, I need to get you to the set, we running short on time"

Upon arriving at the set in his aunt's car, he was directed into the living room straight away. In the room a crowd gathered, they are the other participants, he looked arounded to be exact he didn't know anyone, though he would usually go find a crowd and put himself out there, this time he chose to stay quiet for awhile to rest.

A man walked into the room and begun talking, he said
"Alright everyone, tonight marks the first night of season two. We’ve got our veterans over here-…" as he gestured towards 3 people sitting on the couch. To be honest Hyunsoo hadn't seen season 1, in fact he didn't know what the man meant by veterans. However, he played a long and payed attention to everything the production crew was saying.
"…-and our newbies. For those who don’t know me, my name is Claude Fauré." he continued

Okay, Claude Fauré, Hyunsoo noted that down in his mind, he still hasn't really gotten used to the English names, though he was fluent in English , it will probably take him awhile before remembering all their names.

"You may address me as anything you see fit. Once I assign you to a bedroom, you will be given a roommate and we’ll begin filming. Now-…” as he continued “The cameras will be rolling at all times. I reiterate: at all times. Some moments may not
make the final cut but everything will be on film. Because the goal of this season is to prove that different species from different
Providences can in fact live in harmony, I would like to respectfully request that you hold yourself at some level of decency. Now, you’ll have about half an hour to get your things settled before the cameras start rolling so use them wisely."

"And now for roommates, Roisin Callan and HyunSoo Park in room #1" wait a moment, Roisin that's a girl's name right? oh no they didn't just assign him with a girl. They have got to be kidding haven't they ever heard of 男女授受不亲 he had learned that from Chinese class when he was younger, it meant something like "Men and women should not touch each other when giving or receiving an item" let alone living in the same room.

Just as he was going to attempt to escape, he saw his aunt at the door. He quickly approached her hoping that she could talk to the crew for him.
"Aunty please, this is going against traditions, no one ever said the opposition gender could live in the same room just like that!"
"HyunSoo this is just for a new experience, no please no old Chinese Sayings and don't worry too much about tradition"
"but then could you talk to the crew for me to make a room change, after all it was your idea.."
"no, I am not going to do that, now please just take this as an experience, if you really can't take it just wait awhile they change room frequently, now just have fun"
As a long discussion the two finally agreed that they will come to a compromise.

When he stood face-to-face with his roommate, she introduced herself "I'm Rose, looks like we'll be bunking together." the words "bunking together" bothered him a little but then he remembered what his aunt said about having fun and the agreement they agreed on. So he held out his hand for a handshake while introducing himself. "Hi I am HyunSoo Park, You can call me Parky or HS depending on which you prefer"

Having watched the last season, Rose is well aware that opposite sex pairings aren't uncommon for the show. She herself has no problem with it, but she understands that not everyone might be as comfortable with the arrangement as she is. Having watched her new roommate go off and talk with a woman working behind the scenes, Rose can only assume that the young man is either unhappy with the rooming arrangement, or feeling the onset of sudden shyness. Rose doubted it was the later, assuming that anyone who would sign up for the show had to be confident enough to handle being on camera and seen throughout the world.

Rose smiles as her roommate introduces himself, "Hi I am HyunSoo Park, You can call me Parky or HS depending on which you prefer"
"I like the sound of Parky." Rose replies, "I'll go with that." Rose would prefer not to butcher HyunSoo's name, she knows what it's like to have people constantly mispronouncing your name after all and isn't keen to do the same to someone else. That is why she's all too happy to go with Parky, which her Irish tongue can easily get around.

Around the pair many of the other cast members have already left the lounge, making their way up to their rooms or exploring the house. While Rose might be curious to know what her new room looks like, her true interest lies in the young man standing in front of her. Of course, she's met other species of supernatural creatures before, but they are almost exclusively only members of the Aos Sí, or fairy folk that call Ireland home. Having lived for so long among the same species, her curiosity about others around the world has only increased. Never has she met one from so far afield, at least until today.

While Rose hardly wants to scare him off by overwhelming him with her twenty and more questions, she feels it would be safe to at least ask the basics. "So Parky, what type of beasty are you? Did I hear in the interviews that you're a Gumiho?" Rose may have heard his interview from her place behind the stage, but she hadn't quite caught what a Gumiho was. "And what's South Korea like?"

Her knowledge of other countries is based almost entirely off documentaries, the internet, or second hand information from mortals who could travel between. She had had a boyfriend a decade ago who had gone on tour around Asia. He had come back raving around the cultures and the food. Rose didn't specifically oppose or support segregation, if it happened or didn't happen she wouldn't be particularly upset. Yet, the thought of traveling overseas and sampling the local delicacies (both edible and otherwise) is a rather attractive idea. She supposes this show is the first step in proving that different species can coexist, while it has also offered Rose a chance to travel across the globe and tick off one new country on her bucket list. Two birds with one stone as they say.

Rose Smiled responding to his question with "I like the sound of Parky, I'll go with that." To be honest Hyunsoo was really glad she chose Parky, the two letter HS just doesn't flow as much. "So Parky, what type of beasty are you? Did I hear in the interviews that you're a Gumiho?" She asked "And what's South Korea like?" as she added

"Well you know Gumiho is a nine tailed fox and they are suppose to have 9 lives or at least from the name, people assume that, but to be honest only a few people know those only pure blood Gumihos have 9 tails, as they become more mixed their lives either grew weak or just have lesser lives, my family had always been living in Korea we didn't really mix that much with other species, except my great grandmother was half human which was what my lives a little bit more weaker, but fortunately I haven't needed any of them yet, so hopefully I don't need to use any of them here" he joked. To be honest he didn't even know about the whole Gumiho until a couple of years ago. He had always thought he was human, but after he found out about his identity, he begun looking up more about himself, and learning more. However after Ho-Sook's death, he really regret finding out about his identity and really wished he didn't. He paused for a moment as he looked up around the set, then he spotted a very familiar face,Ho-Sook but then wait no, that's impossible, clearing his eyes, the face disappear, it must have been an illusion.

Going back onto topic he continued "If you ask me about Korea, I would say I love living there. The people, the culture, the music it's all amazing. Most important of all the food is really tasty, the Bibimbaps, the Ramyeons, and of course the Kimchi, I'll cook some for you if you want to try "He begins going on and on about his species and how korea has been like. Until he realized "Oh, I sorry I am I boring you?" he quickly apologized. "Let's get our stuff up to the room and then we can come back down later, and meet the others, but in the mean time, why don't you tell me about Northern Ireland, I have actually never been there before"

Rose pays close attention to the boy's description of what he is. Gumiho is certainly a new name to her and she's curious as to just what it means the male monster can do. As the Parky mentions that a Gumiho is a nine-tailed fox, Rose glances behind him quickly to ascertain whether on not he had any tails. Much to her disappointment none were to be seen. From that she had to assume that he was another one of those monsters who could change form. Rose herself had one form only, her current one. There was no shifting into a might dragon for her, or transforming into a beautiful mythical bird, she was as you find her. Not that she's too unhappy with that. The girl is rather proud of the way she looks and isn't too concerned with the need to change it.

"Oh, I sorry I am I boring you?" Parky asks. Rose shakes her head, a smile on her face.
"Not at all." She replies. Parky suggests heading up to their room and Rose nods in agreement, "Wonderful idea Parky." She agrees, turning on her heel and leading the way towards the second floor. As the pair make their way up the stairs Rose takes the time to correct and answer her roommate's other question.
"I'm actually from Cashel, which sits closer to Ireland's south." The girl shrugs as she walks up the stairs, attempting to find something more than 'It's okay', to say about her home. She loves Ireland, she truly does, but when you've in the same country for the past xx number of years you become used to it all. "I really like Ireland. We're got so many great artists and musicians. Most people are exceptionally friendly. If you go down to the pub chances are someone will buy you a drink." Rose shrugs, perhaps she wasn't doing the best job of selling it. It also occurred to her that she only thought someone would buy you a drink at the pub because it always happened to her. It helps to have a winning smile and a flirtatious glint in your eye for such things.

Before Rose can continuing selling her country to the Gumiho she finds herself facing door number one. Stepping into the room Rose nods in satisfaction, she would very happily stay her. She's not overly concerned with which bed she takes, so she simply dumps what she's holding on the first bed before turning to investigate her temporary home better. She's stayed in nice places before with various boyfriends. Hotels have always sent out the welcome wagon for her famous conquests so she's no stranger to luxury, yet there's something exciting about earning this completely on her own. Well... she supposes the 'earning' will come from spending time entertaining millions of people around the world.

"Hope you do mind I've taken that bed." Rose calls absently over her shoulder as she makes her way towards the bathroom. The shared bathroom is just as nice as the bedroom -Rose had hardly expected less-, and the girl already has a strong desire to jump in and have a warm shower. Fact about Roisin Callan, she could spend hours in the shower if allowed. As long as the water is hot, she's happy to stay.

Of course now it seems rather inappropriate to jump in the shower, especially when, from downstairs, she hears the call that filming has started. Stepping back into the room she finds a cameraman poised with the electronic device resting on his shoulder. She glances away, pretending the man and his large camera are not there. It won't be easy for everyone to constantly be on film, the veterens of course will have experience dealing with being in the limelight 24/7 and perhaps Rose has a slight advantage too, after all she's been to premieres and red carpet events in Ireland before. And the girl knows how to present herself to be seen to the best advantage.

ONE WEEK LATER
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────


The Isles of Sicily; one of the few territories in Ellium that isn't plagued by oppressive segregation. Populated by non-magic humans, it is a nesting ground for equality, adorned with beautiful beaches, rolling hillsides, and floral plains. Consortio Manor lays nestled on a mountainside, overlooking a beach that has been closed off for the use of the cast members. After a week of filming, Claude decides that you and your fellow cast mates deserve a bit of a break while they edit the first episode. Turns out this "breaks" doesn't translate the same to you as it does him. Instead of being free from the cameras in their entirety, Claude limits the amount of cameramen to two instead of the ten they have readily available. Gathering your bathing clothes, you and your cast mates set out to the beach for a day in the sun.

Crashing against the shore, small waves wash the night's debris onto the land. Untouched golden sand covers the floor as far as your eyes can see. Soothing, a gentle sea breeze rustles through your hair. Abandoned, nothing there apart from a few sea gulls pecking at the rubbish left by yesterday's visitors. The blazing sun beats down on the smooth, weathered rocks of the cliff side. The crisp seaweed pushed onto the rocks by the waves, lay baking at the sea's edge, occasionally moving with the tide. The clear blue sea's waves rattle the tiny pebbles embedded in the golden sand. The foam from the waves cover a small child's forgotten sandcastle, bringing it down with a dull crash. Closing off the edge of the beach is a cave, the entrance hidden from view, punctuating the extensive length of the shore side. Islanders mingle and gather far off in the distance, their presence inaudible even to the the creatures they're so far off.

Here marks the next week of filming Return to Reality. What impression will you make?

Fen hummed quietly under her breath to one of her favourite songs as she walked further along the beach where she had finally spotted some cast members around, some in either groups of two or alone. Her gaze fell upon a female who seemed to be alone and Fen realized how she was one of the few members not yet to be fully introduced to.

Picking up the pace she found herself right beside the girl and with a smile she spoke, "Hello!"

Lost in her own world of quiet contemplation, Rose didn't notice the approach of the other housemate until a voice drew her attention. Turning, Rose found herself facing Fen, a smile on the other girl's face as she spoke. Rose felt her own face break into a smile too, happy to finally speak with one of the people she hadn't had a chance to greet yet.
"Hi there, you're Fen, right?" Rose replied. She really didn't need to ask, since she was certain that the Chinese girl was called Fen, but she thought it better to err on the side of caution rather than plow through and call her the wrong name.

With a pleased smile Fen nodded, ”And you must be Roisin if I recall correctly,”she exclaimed. Although Fen had a million questions floating around in her head like usual, the Hsien quickly bit her lip to stop herself from most likely embarrassing herself. ”How do you like beach?”She asked as she propped her sunglasses onto her head. Her hand rubbed against her forearm as small goose bumps emerged from the surface of her skin due to the overabundance of sunshine that her skin was absorbing producing a slight glow.

"It's gorgeous. We've got beaches in Ireland, but they're nothing like this." Rose admits, gazing around at the sandy dunes as she speaks. She gives a casual shrug before returning her attention to Fen, "So tell me, how has your first week gone? Has it been everything you thought it would be?" Rose was curious to hear another newbie's opinion.

"Sounds nice, I'd love to visit if I ever get the chance!" Fen smiled happily at the thought of getting the chance to travel regardless of whether it was possible or not. Tilting her head slightly to avoid the sun from blinding her she let out a silent sigh. "It's been pretty good so far considering I pumped myself up for the worst," Fen laughed quietly before continuing "and from the cast members I've met they all seem like pretty lovely individuals." Fen had thought that she may fall into some drama, mostly due to the fact that she believed not everyone would be so keen on being friends. However the past week had gone by without any issues and it was surprisingly quite fun.

"And what about you? Did the show live up to your expectations?"

"Absolutely." Rose replied with a nod, "I mean, it's different being on this side of the camera, rather than watching at home. But I can't say I haven't been enjoying it." Rose shrugs, she has been enjoying being the center of attention, or one of the centers of attention at least. As for the other house mates, Rose hadn't clashes with any yet either and, as Rose had mentioned, most of them were lovely people.

"'Sides, it's been interesting watching that happening." Rose adds, nodding down the beach to where Dracen and Aiden are just untangling themselves from the other. Rose quirks a smile at Fen, "Romance seems to be in the air." She remarks with dry humor.

Fen glanced towards the two lovebirds before returning her attention back to Rose. "I must admit they both make a pretty cute couple, though I highly doubt romance is in the air, well at least for the rest of us," she joked. "So do you have any particular interest towards anyone?" Fen asked playfully with curiosity.

Rose smiled as Fen jokes, nodding along. Then, as she's asked if there is anyone Rose has her eye on she gives a casual shrug, "Not really." She replied easily, "I'm more into humans." She added. Leanne Sidhe, after all, feed off their life while acting the muse. Rose had wondered before what would happen if she partnered with a longer-living monsters, but she'd not yet felt the urge to do so. She shrugged again, "Who knows. What about you?" She asked, quirking an eyebrow at the Chinese girl, "Any lover at home, or have you got your eye on someone here?"

"Oh I see that's interesting."She tilted her head ever so slightly in order to look at Rose more closely. It was certainly true that the girl was beautiful and she knew that the people back home would also be enticed. With a dramatic sigh Fen shook her head at the question. Having a relationship was something Fen had the tendency to forgot about as she was oblivious to anything related to love and her family still firmly believed upon arranged marriages so if anything she'd probably be introduced to someone. "Not really...but it's still quite early,"she smiled.

Rose dug her toes into the sand, enjoying the sensation as the tiny grains fall around her feet. "Dear old cupid usually strikes when you're not looking for it." Rose replied. Then she quirked her eyebrow, casting Fen a playful glance, "Or else you can go out and find love yourself." The last approach was usually Rose's preferred.

Rolling her eyes Fen shook her head, "What was that saying? Don't go running after love or something? The idea of finding love herself seemed quite daunting for her, especially since she hadn't experienced it yet properly even though she was quite old now. "Perhaps you should teach me the way of love, god I've lived for quite some time now and yet it doesn't seem to be registering in my head!"

"Let's see," Rose began, playing along with the idea of teaching Fen about love. "First you have to find someone you like. Then you've got to judge what kind of person they are and what they'll respond to. Some like you innocent and sweet, others want a vixen." Rose gave Fen an innocent smile, then a sultry wink as she visually helped emphasis her words. Her smile turns into a grin and she gives a shrug, "Although maybe that's simply how to seduce someone... love comes later."

Fen nudged Rose playfully, "My my Rose you know your stuff!" With a hand on her heart she pretended to be affected by her wink. "Now all I need is a target really, but I highly doubt I could be a vixen," Fen skimmed the area for potential lovers but no one really stood out much.

Rose chuckled to herself, finding that she was enjoying herself with Fen more than she had expected. Why hadn't she talked to the girl earlier? Rose flipped her hair behind her back, giving a shrug, "I've had years of refine my skills." She told her new friend, "That's all it is. All you need is some practise and you'll be collecting boys, or girls, in no time." Rose paused, before sending Fen another grin, "You can always practice on me if you like."

Fen felt her cheeks warm up at the comment and with a laugh she said "Oh I hardly think you're an easy target!" With a smile she leaned in ever so slightly and tucked a piece of Rose's red locks behind her ear. "A beautiful woman like you I'm sure wouldn't have any trouble finding herself a lover," Fen playfully added.

"That's very good. Compliments are the way to a woman's heart." Rose simpered, leaning in herself, "Then you add a lingering touch, a sultry expression, and you have them wrapped around your little finger." She added, letting her hand gently rest on Fen's while she demonstrated a 'sultry gaze'. She lingered for a moment before breaking contact and leaning back, offering Fen an impish wink.

Fen gave a slight nod, "but how do you know that I'm not being serious with you right now?" She smiled brightly at her friend while looking at the sparkling sea for a few moments. "I think the whole sultry thing will have to wait otherwise you'd be laughing at the plain stiffness of it all!" She winked jokingly to make her point.

With a friendly shrug Rose returned to her natural state, an easy smile playing across her face, "Sometimes 'sultry' is overrated." Rose said, "Anyway, the world doesn't solely revolve around romantic partners, although they are a lot of fun. Tell me a bit about yourself." Rose almost cringes at how cliched her request to Fen sounds. 'Tell me about yourself' sounds like it belongs in some hideous 80's movie.

"I suppose you're right about that," Fen laughed. She made a quiet humming noise while thinking of an answer to Rose's very open question. After a few moments she finally replied "right well I'm a Hsien also known as immortal feathered folk perhaps to some and I'm not actually allowed to be here so I suppose I'd be called somewhat of a traitor..." She chuckled, not wanting to drift the conversation to the serious side as of yet. "Sorry I'm not sure what to say at this point but I'd like to gain knowledge of, well everything really, our community is really close minded so my life has been quite sheltered," Fen added.

"Your turn now, tell me something...like I don't know, your favourite colour?"

Rose nodded along as Fen spoke, her curiosity rising as the girl remarked that she isn't actually allowed to be on the Reality Show. Rose makes a note to ask Fen about that later, for now the Hsien was inquiring about Rose. Rose contemplated Fen's question, she didn't really have a favourite colour. "I used to love green, and then I had a thing for pink... Now, I'd probably say blue, but it's a changing thing." Rose told her with a shrug, "Anyway, what else can I tell you...I'm a cancer and Irish, if you hadn't already guessed."

"That would make sense, I never found why people had a favourite colour in the first place to be honest." Fen smiled knowingly at the next statement. She could tell Rose was Irish, mostly due to her accent which Fen adored though without wanting to seem too childish she stopped herself from commenting on the accent...for later anyway. "Oh I'm a Pisces!" She exclaimed, wondering whether they the stars favored to two even though Fen wasn't too into Horoscopes.

"The fish and the crab, aye?" Rose commented. She didn't really follow star signs all that much, well apart from her own, and she couldn't have told you much about what they all meant. They were a borrowed idea after all, and not something that she had grown up. Rose's eyes caught the sight of people dispersing, some heading back up to the house while others took a last dip in the sea. Rose turned her own feet towards the softly breaking waves. "I might go dip my feet in before I head back." She said to Fen, "Want to join me?" Rose offered, although she really wouldn't be offended if Fen declined.

With a smile Fen nodded, dipping her feet one by one just to test the waters. She hadn't actually had a dip yet though was meaning to for a while now and seeing as she was presented with a nice opportunity to do so, how could she refuse? A few moments later Fen walked into the sea only to be pushed back against the current as she didn't realise how strong it was. Laughing to herself she glanced behind her to look over at Rose.

Rose followed after Fen, rolling the ends of her dress up with her hands to avoid it getting soaked by the sea. She stepped into the shallows, letting the tide gently wash against her ankles. She dug her feet into the sand, anchoring herself in the sand as she watched Fen laugh as the current fought to pull her out. "Don't get dragged out to sea, I really don't want to get my dress wet." Rose told her, a teasing smile playing on her face.

As Fen laughed at the comment she pushed her way through the resistance to go slightly further into the sea. "Oh come on, it's much more fun this way!" She turned around to face Rose and ushered her forward. Her dress was completely soaked but Fen felt very alive and excited.

Rose eventually gave in to Fen's ushering and took a few steps forward. She had been swimming earlier, she still wore her bikini under her dress, but for Rose the beach was much more a place to sunbathe and admire the young, tanned men and women that usually graced the sand. However, Fen's mood was catching and Rose had to admit that the other girl looked like she was having fun. So Rose set forth to meet her friend in the surf. She was almost there when a wave broke on her, completely saturating the redhead and ruining any attempt to keep her dress dry. Rose threw her hands in the air in the international symbol of 'I give up', just as another wave hit. This time it elicited a laugh from the Irish girl and, finally pushing through the water to reach Fen she said, "Happy now?"

Fen watched as Rose complied with her wishes and with a huge grin splashed some water in her direction. Although they hadn't gone too far, the water reached just above her shoulders and with a deep breath she pushed her entire body into the sea for only a few seconds before coming back up again. "I think we should grab something to eat soon before I starve!" Fen exclaimed brightly.
