Description

Image
CHARLOTTE MEIRN

"Most girls want a guy who would hold an umbrella over their head and carry them over puddles. I want a guy who would steal my umbrella, jump in the puddles just to splash me and kiss me before I could yell at him."

Iris - Sleeping With Sirens
"And I don't want the world to see me
'Coz I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am."

Full Name
"My name? Why do you care?" Her name is Charlotte Meirn, she hasn't got a middle name. It wasn't considered important at the time of her birth.

Nickname
"I suppose if I have to tell you, call me Charlie. It is the only thing I will allow others to call me, most don't even know my real name." Charlie stuck with her since she was little, there was another girl in her class named Charlotte and she didn't want to be a double. An added benefit is that she thought it made her sound more like a boy, and she is definitely one of the boys.

Gender
"That actually is rude... or ignorant. Are you blind?" Female, though she rarely acts it.

Role
Girl Two.



Image
Appearance

Hair
Her hair is the color brown, though many like to describe it as chocolate-y or even black because it's deep brown color almost can appear to be black. It falls in gentle waves, resting just a bit below her shoulders. Though sometimes she will choose to straighten it, it takes quite a while though due to it's thickness, and she really is not all that patient.

Eyes
Charlie's eyes are somewhat of a murky brown that she can't stand. The only thing she likes about them is the specks of gold that seem to float within them. Unfortunately her deceased mother made her wear contacts, making her eyes appear blue instead because people used to stare at the unusual nature of their color. She still wears them, even though her mother is gone, simply because she has always been told it was safer.

Body
She fits almost perfectly into the "petite" category, being just above five foot[ five foot one inch to be exact, though the world naturally rounds down ] and only a hundred and two pounds. Though, sometimes a turn off to others, she is rather pale. People used to tease her for being "white as a ghost", though she never minded it. The reason she has always been so pale is because she doesn't really like to go out in the sun, she much more prefers the night. As you can see from the picture on the right, she isn't necessarily "strong". You can even see her ribs somewhat.

Style
Most girls go out of their way to look "pretty" for guys, right? This girl is probably the complete opposite, she chooses to be comfy rather than be whore-y. You'll rarely catch her in a skirt, actually she doesn't even own one. Though you'll also rarely catch her with pants on, unless in public. She prefers to wear longer shirts[ longer, heh, just long enough to cover everything ], often old band tee shirts or even some of her brothers button down shirts. When she does have to wear pants though, you can usually find her wearing skinny jeans of any color or sometimes even shorts, though she doesn't really like wearing shorts either. Shoes are usually combat boots or skate shoes[ DC's, Van's, TH ]. Also she tends to wear a lot of hoodies in public.

General
Charlie probably comes off as somewhat of a tomboy. She sits with her legs spread wide, or sometimes she'll lay in a seat and put her feet over the back of it. This girl can curse like a sailor, yet at the same time sound utterly intelligent. Most of the time though, you'll find her in her room, curled up on the window seat with a book and her iPad, listening to whatever screamo or indie music she pleases without earphones so the rest of the house can hear. Mainly she looks innocent though. Like a little kid almost, definitely not like she should be involved in all the current happenings. And she really isn't, she doesn't do drugs and she's never had sex, the only violence she associates with is the stuff her family tells her to do. She isn't one to purposefully cause trouble or go looking for a fight.

Likes
"Nothing princess-y, if that's what you were thinking." Charlie likes a lot of things, well a lot of silly things. She likes to play pranks and laugh, run around the house singing and dancing until someone literally has to hold her to get her to calm down. Candy is a god, though she really shouldn't have much of it because she gets hyper way too easily. To be more serious though, she likes to read and write, if you're lucky you may catch her playing guitar or singing, though she really only does that for Boy Four. Something she would never admit is that she likes to cuddle or be held, touch is a really big thing for her, as in she'll crawl all over people or try and sit in their laps, though it's so innocent and playful that it can't be really thought of as anything other. Lastly she loves the rain, her dreams are to be kissed in the rain and dance in the refrigerator light at midnight, sounds like a Taylor Swift song, right?

Dislikes
"Girls! They are so bitchy." Obviously she isn't too fond of her own gender, though there is multiple reasons behind that. She doesn't like relationships, they terrify her. Being serious is boring, sitting still is impossible, and her step-mother is a bitch. Charlie can't cook for the life of her, if it can be burnt it will be. Sometimes she will be teased for being skinny or anorexic, and she really can't stand that. Crying, that's a pretty normal thing to dislike, and she hates people seeing her cry. Other things include her insomnia, and the nightmares that haunt her when she actually can sleep.

Fears
"What am I afraid of? You're funny, I don't feel fear." Like any other human being, Charlie fears rejection. Things that she fears that most adults probably don't include the dark, or mirrors at night. Any sort of scary movie frighten's her, even if it's supposedly PG 13 or whatever. One of her biggest fears is her siblings being hurt or dying, those surprisingly she does not fear death herself.

Personality
Charlie's primary mode of living is focused internally, where she deals with things rationally and logically. Her secondary mode is external, where she take things in via her five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. Charlie has a compelling drive to understand the way things work. She's good at logical analysis, and like to use it on practical concerns. Typically having strong powers of reasoning, although she's not interested in theories or concepts unless she can see a practical application. She likes to take things apart and see the way they work. Charlie has an adventuresome spirit. She is attracted to motorcycles, airplanes, sky diving, surfing, etc. She thrives on action, and is usually fearless. Charlie is fiercely independent, needing to have the space to make her own decisions about their next step. She does not believe in or follow rules and regulations, as this would prohibit her ability to "do her own thing". Her sense of adventure and desire for constant action makes her prone to becoming bored rather quickly. Although she does not respect the rules of the "System", she follows her own rules and guidelines for behavior faithfully. She will not take part in something which violates her personal laws.

Charlie likes and needs to spend time alone, because this is when she can sort things out in their minds most clearly. She absorbs large quantities of impersonal facts from the external world, and sort through those facts, making judgments, when she is alone. Charlie is an action-oriented person. She likes to be up and about, doing things/ She won't sit behind a desk all day and do long-range planning. Adaptable and spontaneous, she responds to what is immediately before her. She usually has strong technical skills, and can be as effective technical leaders. She does not pay attention to her own feelings, and even distrust them and try to ignore them, because she has difficulty distinguishing between emotional reactions and value judgments. This may be a problem area for her. When she is over-stressed, she may exhibit rash emotional outbursts of anger, or on the other extreme may be overwhelmed by emotions and feelings which she feels compelled to share with people (often inappropriately). When down on herself she will foray into the world of value judgments - a place which is not natural for the her - and judge herself by the inability to perform some task. Charlie will then approach the task in a grim emotional state, expecting the worst. But Charlie is excellent in a crisis situations. She is good at following through with a project, and tying up loose ends.


Love Interest
"Love? It's a superstition. The only love I believed in was when my mother was alive, now that bitch has replaced her." She's sleeping with both Boy Two and Boy Three, and doesn't feel love with either. Though one day she likes to believe that she will fall in love with someone.

So begins...

Katherine Van Tassel blinked at her surroundings, the cool air of the night stinging her warm flesh. Her hair whipped around her as she observed the trees of the forest in complete and utter suspicion and suprise. Her eyes were wide and alert as the town's natural fog only seemed to be murkier, more suffocating. Her chest heaved with trepidation and she tucked a few strands of hair behind her ears.

Why in the hell was she in the forest?

When did she get to the forest?

Instead of mulling the situation over, Katherine began walking, boots crunching down on dry leaves as she sought to find her way out of the forest. As she walked, she could have sworn that she heard the sound of rushing water and surmised that she was close to the water. Nodding, she quickened her pace only to hear something behind her. She turned. Nothing there. She began walking briskly, occasionally glancing behind her to make sure there was nothing behind her. Before long, Katherine was full out jogging, trying to recall if she was going the right way to the lake house -

The ground suddenly rushed up to meet her and for a second, Katherine could only lay there, raising herself up on her hands and feeling like one of those idiot girls in a horror movie.
Such a dumbass, she thought with a hint of disgust before her eyes widened and a chill trickled down her spine. Before her was the same burial site of the Hessian's head, freshly dug up. Katherine reached over to it for some reason, a strange impulse to check it...to make sure.

A horse's cry shattered her concentration and she suck up air, a strangled gasp escaping her lips. She turned over her shoulder and her heart nearly stopped. The horse's angry red eyes glared down at her with malice, causing her entire body to freeze with paralyzing fear. She gulped but could not move. The rider...the rider with the axe...his head...

There was no head.


********


Katherine Van Tassel's head shot up out of sleep and she blinked a few times, mind and body not processing anything at the moment. For a second, she forgot where she was before she blinked that last time and the plane jerked for a moment.

"Ladies and gentleman, this is your captain speaking. We are experiencing a little turbulence at the moment because of the light storm, but we will be touching down in Massachusetts in about roughly fifteen minutes." Kat calmed herself then and settled back in her seat, ignoring the slight shaking of the plane and gazed out the window. She was on her way back...back to Sleepy Hollow.

Charlie could honestly say that she did not believe in love. That sort of implied that she had also never been in love, but she usually felt the need to clarify that point. Love was fictitious, it was something that weak people relied on for some sense of comfort or stability. Though she supposed if she had to be in love with someone, or fall in love with someone, she wouldn't mind falling for Gabriel. Anytime she mentioned him to someone, they always asked Who's Gabriel?, and usually it was because everyone called him Gabe- which she refused to do -, or they honestly just didn't know who he was. Anyways, she supposed that answer probably should have been [FC: Zac Efron], but she just didn't feel it with him. Sure, he was attractive, and probably really easy for naive girls to fall in love with, but she couldn't really get past how he was just so happy sleeping around with her and not caring about anything else. Not that she was much better, actually she was probably worse, she was sleeping with two people. Oh well, it wasn't like she was in a relationship with either. First she'd slept with [FC: Zac Efron], whom had apparently been waiting awhile for her to give it up to him- and she had, before him she'd never actually slept with a guy. And then awhile after, she met Gabriel and just sort of slept with him for the hell of it. He was hot, and she sort of liked him. No way could she stop what she was doing with [FC: Zac Efron] though, Gabriel would think she wanted him to be committed to her or something. So now she was involved in this huge clusterfuck and had no idea what was happening.

So, in some odd sort of way, that's how she ended up where she was now; picking through clothes on the floor and trying to find her clothes. Eventually she just settled for one of his shirts, giving up on finding the dress she'd been wearing last night- though she guessed it was a bit ripped now anyways. When she was ten, if someone had asked her what she would be doing in five years, this definitely would not have been her answer. Yet here she was, twenty years old in her second year of med school, hoping to escape from some guys room half-naked without waking him up. Of course, that's when her phone decided to start screaming.


-- She can be leaving Josh's or Gabe's, whoever feels like it. cx --

Gabriel Wilson

Gabe was drifting between that space of sleep and alert. His eyes running wild beneath his eyelids, while colors painted a world in his mind. He couldn't tell if he was in the stages of being awake yet, but understood that he still had his eyes closed. He wants to stay in this space, this warm, soft, place where nothing ever goes wrong and the stresses of daily life can't reach him. But it seems there are other, greater plans for Gabe that day. A phones shrill ring awakens him fully, bringing a groan from his lips.

The first thing he realizes is A) he is still naked. Which means B) Charlie was over last night and is probably still here. He wouldn't mind of course if she were still here. She always seemed to disappear after sex - or otherwise - which left Gabe to ponder exactly what made her leave in the first place. He blinks open his eyes to see her, half dressed in one of his shirts, and looking much like a deer caught in the headlights. He doesn't ponder the meaning of her surprise. "Charlie?" He asks, though he knows its her, its the first thing that seems to flow from his mouth.

"Not trying to sneak out on me are you?" He smirks. He knows they aren't exactly committed to each other, though he's not sure what they are to each other. He knows he could and probably does love Charlie, and could fall in love with her if the chance ever arose. He knows he likes her a lot, that she's not only hot but has a firecracker of a personality that resonates well him. But he also knows he isn't quite ready to be so exclusive yet, and to be giving up the carefree lifestyle he has thus far lived.

Don't get her wrong, she didn't blame either of the boys for her being afraid of a real relationship. After all, it wasn't like they were making her sleep with them. Actually, she didn't really blame anyone. She didn't really want a relationship right then, seemed like too much drama, too much work. Mostly what she was concerned with right now was school, she hardly even drank or partied anymore. Didn't stop her from acting drunk when she met up with Josh or Gabe, but that was mostly because she didn't want either to think she actually wanted to sleep with them. Or something like that. Okay, she was a girl, and she was allowed to be complicated.

Her phone was still ringing, and she was still staring at Gabe. Without thinking, she took a few steps towards the dresser and grabbed her phone, not even looking at the screen as she shut it up. On the ground she found her dress, finally, and sort of frowned at it. There was a little tear in the back, and she didn't even pick it up. He could throw it out, or maybe he wouldn't even see it and it'd get kicked under the dresser and live there forever.

He's smirking when she looks up at him, hearing him speak again. It took her a minute to swallow around the lump in her throat, but eventually she was able to talk. "No, of course not- um." She was lost for words, and picked her way back to the bed and leaned back on it, sitting on her knees. "I was cold." Pathetic excuse, they both knew she always tried to escape before he woke up. Having sex with someone was okay, waking up with someone wasn't.
