"Mirror Mirror on the Wall."
{ YOUTH || Troye Sivan}


Appearance:
(Birdish. Is one way you could describe Matt. Lanky. Small. Thin. Those are other ways you could describe the boy. When he was younger, Matt had a habit of covering up his body with turtlenecks, his parents insisted on him wearing. But, Matthew has brunette hair that's normally ether cut short to the point he can twist it, or kept longer where it goes into his face. The hair, does possess come caramelized streaks throughout it. His eyes are a deep greenish-blue depending on his mood they can be an emerald green to the deepest of storm blues. Or an odd mixture throughout them. His skin is very pale in complexion, and only possesses hints of peach undertones.

Matt stands at an even height of 5'6 and doesn't plan on growing anytime. He's shorter than most kids his age, but ehh it doesn't matter. Matthew's weight is somewhere between ninety-eight pounds and one-hundred and three pounds and seven ounces. He doesn't know for sure but he thinkgs it was somewhere in that ballpark. On his inner thigh --right one-- he has a birthmark that looks like a butterfly.)

Secret:
(Homosexuality. Matthew's secret is his homosexuality, and the fact he's in a very religious family does not help. He's so afraid of his family, and them finding out, he forces himself to date girls from his school. He knows if his parents found out, he'd probably be dead or worse.)

"My mind is probably more than you could take."

{ Drunk | Ed Sheeran}

Personality:
( Kind || Goofy || Shy || Insecure

All of these words describe Matthew as he is, himself. When one first meets Matthew he has a bit of a shy demeanor. Stuttering, forgetting words, and sometimes he even speaks fluent Italian. But then again, Matthew has social anxiety, so nothing is very much a 'first' introduction. This is him as commonly as most people know him. "Stuttering MJ". He doesn't mean to, but the way he was raised, he doesn't believe he has a voice. He thinks he should be silent and obedient.

Matthew is more kind than anyone he knows. He always gives people the benefit of the doubt and is one to give people second chances. He believes in order to obtain kindness you have to treat others the same way. Matthew's normally never angry, but does or can have a bit of a mean streak if you keep on bothering him. He naturally is a goofy kid, and honestly just wants to have fun with his passion and make it his life.

One of Matthew's core problems, is the fact he's insecure. About every little thing there is to him. He hates it. From his eyes, to his nose, to his teeth, and even on somedays his laugh. He also hates the fact, he's not the son his parents wanted. He wants so desperately to be normal. But he just isn't. So he fakes attraction to girls, and even fakes his love for sports. But deep down, he knows it's a lie and his hates himself for it. )

Talents:
(Photography - Cooking - Playing Guitar)
Weaknesses:
(His Insecurities - His Shyness - His Naivety - People Finding Out About His Sexuality)
Fears:
(Clowns - Heights - Deep Sea - Underground - Spiders)

"My past does not define me."

{ Happy Little Pill | Troye Sivan}


History:

( On August 20th, 2000, Matthew-James Bryant Summers was born to Jason and Elizabeth Summers. Their seventh child, and their last, as Elizabeth died while giving birth. resulting in some resentment towards Matthew by his father and his siblings. But as Matthew grew to become the boy he is today, he wouldn't be here without a few bumps in the road.

When Matthew was four years old, his father remarried a very religious woman named Naomi. A woman of strict meaning, who turned his siblings and his father into religious nuts. Naomi raised the children with a ideal that homosexuality was evil, and they would be repented. As her previous husband, left her for a man. She was convinced the Devil took over his soul, and made him cheat upon her. Her raising Matthew, made his brain corrupt. He felt confused about his own identity, and was afraid of trying to test himself.

When Matthew turned twelve, he gave his courage a try. But, not on purpose. He was in a library, and a boy from his school started to talk to him. Matthew, confused as to why the male was talking to him, started to notice minor details about the male. His eye colors, his freckles, the cute way the male seemed to twitch now and then. Matthew wasn't aware the male was doing the same towards him. So..in short they ended up kissing. But Matthew enjoyed it, even though in his mind he was trying to force himself to believe he didn't like it. So he repressed these emotions. He became a bit more anxiety ridden and stressed. He strayed a way from his religion for a bit, and started to go through serious depression.

Of course, this could not have gone unnoticed. Matthew's eldest sibling, Bianca, asked him what he was going through. He wouldn't explain. But she recommended him going to a therapist to talk about it, and Matthew was prescribed medicine to help him with his depression. He dated several girls, but it always ended shortly. Now, on his junior year in high school, he has to deal with this mysterious person telling their secrets. But he knows for one thing, he didn't do anything.

An uneasy week or so had passed between the last message, and all had gone worryingly quiet. Everyone was forced to the edge of their seat, braced for something to happen. Or, at least, everyone who had got the texts were. Everyone else was perfectly chilled out- still throwing parties, at least.

The party Jay was at was definitely more his type of party. The music wasn't all pounding bass, and it was turned down to a volume where you could actually hear the conversations around you. There was a cup in everyone's hand, but nobody was throwing up or passed out anywhere. People were dancing, but not just grinding on each other with the hope of getting lucky. He'd been to all kinds of parties in his time- from the mind-numbing social events that barely passed as parties and that he'd been obliged to attend, but that did have free alcohol, to the wild parties that the models had somehow found or started themselves afterwards. But these chilled out, laid back ones were always his favourite.

Taking a sip out of his drink, he pulled out his phone and sent a few texts.

To: Theo
i'm inside whenever you get here- let me know when you're nearly here and i'll snag you a drink


"Jay, my man!" Someone yelled, and he grinned as he realised who it was. A fellow model, one he'd worked with and had shared a hotel room with a year or so previous. Jay'd heard that he was coming to town, but hadn't known when.

"Mikey! Still have that inbuilt talent to find parties, then," Jay said, standing up to hug the other guy, careful not to spill his drink. Mikey shrugged, grinning a little. "Hey, dude, you either have it, or you don't. I brought alcohol, where should I leave it?" He asked. Jay pointed the place out to him, and sat back down on the couch, checking his phone again.

Matthew silently sat in his room. His dark brown hair kept out of his face in a black beanie. His dark eyes would look at his computer screen. He typed away at the game he was playing, well not a game. His life. He was playing some MMORPG he got into when he was in Art III. He would look at the screen and feel an endless bout of boredom. His left hand moved into his pocket, as he would silently check his phone. No notifications. Something he was used to. He would blink and then start to type a text to Jay. His 'elder brother'.

~ To Model Boy ~
Hey? You busy tonight? I was wondering if you maybe wanted to come over and play some video games?

He would type the text then press send, his hands hovering over it. He didn't want to bother Jay, he was somewhat the closest person he was tied with. He would hate to ruin it, like most of his own relationships. His sister, Bianca, didn't even talk to him after she told him to go see a therapist. He never had made really any friends. He wanted to. Man...he wanted to have a plethora of friends like most of his siblings. But he wasn't socially inclined. He was afraid they would hate him, and find out about his...issue. Then they would back away from him, and not talk to him. Worse...tell his parents. That's why he somewhat kept his secrets from everyone, even Jay. He thought about telling the male. He thought about it for at least a month, after becoming close to the man. But he decided against it in all honesty. It could wait.

Jay leaned against the wall, tilting his head back and sighing. He was pretty sure that he'd had a little too much to drink, but he also couldn't care. He was so relaxed that he didn't want to worry about something small like that. And besides, he could still walk and talk, and he could remember his name and how to flirt, so he'd be fine. His phone buzzed in his pocket and he grinned as he pulled it out. It was a text from Matthew, one he quickly replied to.

To: Matt
Sorry dude, I'm at a party right now. You know, you could always come along. You won't have to drink if you don't want to, and I promise I won't leave you alone. Well, for too long anyway. unless you get lucky and want me to, that is ;)


He was pretty sure that Matt would be able to tell that he was more than a little drunk, but he honestly didn't care. He took another mouthful out of his beer and grinned as one of his friends emerged from the bathroom. They went back to the main room, where someone managed to drag him up to dance.

He was gone to get a drink when his phone buzzed again. Expecting a reply from Matthew, he took it out and unlocked it without reading the message preview. When he read the actual message, however, his heart stopped.

From: Unknown
This person has kleptomania and pyromania. That is, they're a thief and a firestarter. Just how close did you let this person? 72 hours. Then the hunt starts.


His first emotion was relief. It wasn't him. His secrets weren't going to be revealed, and he wasn't going to die. Then came the guilt. But somebody's secrets had been spilled, hadn't they? Somebody could die. One of his friends.

Panic suddenly gripped his chest, and he closed the message, typing out a few rapid texts.

To: Matt; Theo; Nate
Did you guys get the text?

He very nearly asked if it was them, but deleted that and instead sent the same message to the three of them. The panic wasn't clearing, so he forced out an apology and made a beeline for the bathroom. The nearest had a queue a good few people long- but he was friends with the host and knew where there was another bathroom, a quieter one. He got in and locked the door, his hands and breath already starting to shake. What if it was one of them? He honestly didn't care about the secret itself, but he was terrified that they were going to get hurt, or worse, killed.

He sank onto the floor and pulled his knees to his chest, running his hands through his hair and pulling at it. His thoughts were racing, he couldn't breathe, and he was all alone. Oh god.

~ From Model Boy ~
Sorry dude, I'm at a party right now. You know, you could always come along. You won't have to drink if you don't want to, and I promise I won't leave you alone. Well, for too long anyway. unless you get lucky and want me to, that is ;)

The male hesitated a bit. Should he? He thought about it for at least three minutes. Yes, he was going to. He needed to get his mind off of some stuff anyway.

~ To Model Boy ~
Um sure. Are you drunk? Anyway, where is it? I'm telling my parents I'm going to a study.

He typed back as he would continue playing his game, before ending it and moving his rolling chair back. He was well off, not rich, but not poor. He would sigh and look at his body sized mirror, and grunt. "Ugh, what am I going to wear?" he thought with a huff. He would get up and move to his closet, and look through it. He took a black denim jacket out, and just put it over his own black Nirvana t-shirt.

He would hear his phone go do-do-dodo-do, a ringtone he set for unknown numbers. He looked at it and unlocked his phone to see it. His dark amber/green eyes would blink widely.

~ From: Unknown ~
This person has kleptomania and pyromania.
That is, they're a thief and a firestarter.
Just how close did you let this person?
72 hours. Then the hunt starts.

What the? The male thought before shaking it and hearing a reply from Jay.

~ From Model Boy ~
Did you guys get the text?

~ To Model Boy ~
Yep. What do you think it means?

The male replied before he walked out of his house, his hair covered by a beanie. "Mom. Dad. I'm going to a study group. I'll be back tomorrow, Jay's letting me crash at his place.". Not a complete lie. But not the complete truth either. After a few mumbles and groans saying okay, he would walk to his scooter. After starting the ignition, he realized he had no address to go to. So he sat in his driveway waiting for a reply from the male.
