This is my life: Her life growing up was one that could easily be made into a movie. Ashton grew up without either of her parents, as they are almost always away. Though she never really missed them, not because she was heartless or mean or anything, just because there was nothing really to miss- she was fine on her own. It was very easy for her to make friends with the boys, but she could never really have a female friend. Probably because she grew up with three older brothers and then a twin brother, so she didn't have much experience with the other species, other than herself of course. And she acts more like a boy than anything- which is actually helpful in this situation.

Sometimes I act like this: Her 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. She has a compelling drive to understand the way things work. Good at logical analysis, she likes 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. Ashton is fiercely independent, needing to have the space to make her own decisions about her 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.

She 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. Ashton is an action-oriented person. She likes to be up and about, doing thing, which means 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 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. Ashton will then approach the task in a grim emotional state, expecting the worst.

✍ ASHTON RUESS

Waking up at five was not a normal occurrence for a girl like Ashton- waking up before noon was an accomplishment. Then again, you would guess that if you knew you were going to have to wake up early, you wouldn't stay up until three in the morning playing Saints Row 3. Ironically, that was one of her brothers first questions when she finally dragged herself out of bed and downstairs. It was the eldest Ruess sitting at the table, coffee already made and a glass set out for her. "You're insane," she muttered, flopping down in the chair across from him. Zach looked like he wanted to say something, but apparently decided to let her wake up a bit more before asking any more questions. After she was able to take a drink get her brain working again, she finally decided to answer his earlier inquiry about what she had been playing all last night- probably keeping him and the rest of the house awake. "Saints Row, your stupid brother said that he had a higher score than I did, obviously I had to set him straight." Her brother frowned, though immediately looked towards the stairs as if he expected the previously mentioned brother to walk downstairs now and for another fight to ensue between he and Ashton. The whole family knew it was going to happen, it was a regular occurrence. Their family took video games very seriously. Her brother looked relieved when he glanced back at her, having probably thought the same thing as her. None of the other siblings were going to be up for at least another hour. Usually it was only Zach that woke up early, because of his work schedule. Oddly enough he chose to wake up early almost every other day, too.

"You do realize he's your brother too, right?" She only shrugged, taking another sip of the coffee in front of her. That was the end of all questioning, it was the end of any conversation altogether. Neither spoke in the following minutes, and at least twenty slipped by before she finished her drink and got up to place the cup in the sink. While passing by her brother, she leaned down to place a quick peck on his cheek. The only sign of recognition she got from him was his lips twitching into a slight smile. "See you later, big bro." When she returned downstairs later, he would be gone, and she wouldn't see him for who knew how long. Their family wasn't the greatest at being sentimental either, no tears would be shed even as they realized that little sister was going to be missing from the house and surrounded by a bunch of boys at her new school. That usually would have made the other two older brothers angry, but they knew she was going to be disguised as a boy too, and didn't really understand the concept of homosexuality. Oh, her twin did cry actually, but that was probably more because she was confiscating the xbox in their room, which meant he would have to try and convince one of the other siblings to let them use theirs. Besides the xbox, her "electronics" bag contained a laptop, a Nokia Lumia, and about five hundred different chargers and earphones. Luckily she had her brothers to help carry things down to the car, so she only got stuck lugging a white and black checkered acoustic guitar down the steps. The second eldest Ruess, Russel, was driving her to the new school, since the other two needed to get to their own schools.

"You're so flat-chested, you might actually be able to pass as a dude." Such comments were expected from Sam, since he was still angry about her beating him the previous night- or morning. "And your hair is so long, you might actually be able to pass as a girl." She gave a tug to one of the long, blue strands of hair before hopping into the car. After her twin's tearful goodbyes, they began their journey to her new school.

Russel and she exchanged farewells once they arrived, which really weren't all that special. To her surprise, there was a man waiting for her as soon as she got inside the gates. She somewhat reluctantly let him take her bags, though she wasn't quite sure how he was supposed to know where her room was. But she did know that there was no way she was carrying all those things by herself. After a bit of pacing back and forth nervously, she got up the courage to walk into the front hall and get her room assignment. Pocketing the keys, she took the map she had gotten and quickly found her way to the room. Once inside, she claimed the bed furthest from the door by throwing her guitar onto it. Her bags were left forgotten on the floor in front of her bed as she began setting up all of the important things- the electronics.

A loud groan came deep from the throat of the nineteen year old Russian. He glared at the curtains, angry that they were permitting the sunlight to come through their fabrics. Maxim rose from the bed, similar to the way a zombie would from the grave. The blankets of the hotel bed seemed to weigh 300 pounds as he dragged them off of him.

His morning routine was a simple one. Everything was packed and ready to go. So all he had to do was get dressed and brush his teeth. He left his room to go into the kitchen area, where his father was sipping on some black coffee and reading the newspaper.

β€œGood morning Father.” Max’s voice was calm and emotionless. His father glanced at him and nodded, then returned to the paper. Max sighed and grabbed an apple from the fridge and drank some milk. The hotel room was a good sized one. Their home was in β€œMother Russia”, as the silly Americans made fun of him by saying that. Max’s father stood and grabbed the car keys, indicating that it was time to leave. They both left the room in complete silence.

The car ride was a quiet one. There were no words exchanged between the two. When his father pulled up to the school, Max couldn’t help but gape. It was immense, not to mention gorgeous. Max stepped out of the car and grabbed his things, with mostly consist of his recording equipment, one luggage, and his electric and acoustic guitars. He brought his keyboard last. It was all on a little cart that he pulled to his room, Dorm Two C. His key fit into the lock and he swung it open. He could see the room was already occupied. Max dragged his things in.

β€œGood evening, my name is Maxim Solvoynov. But you can call me Max.” His accent was very present in his voice. His face was striaght, not that much emotion present on his face.

✍ ASHTON RUESS

Ashton had achieved setting the xbox up a few moments ago, and was now working on figuring out how to plug in her chargers and her laptop at the same time. Luckily, there were outlets on both sides of the room, which meant she didn't have to worry about leaving one open for her roommate on this side. In the end, she got out her extension cord which had more than two outlets- which was really what she should have just done in the first place. It wasn't like she had to be smart or anything, rumor had it that the headmaster didn't care for his students brains, he just wanted them to be pretty. Which was actually quite flattering if she thought about it- she made an attractive enough boy to get into a prestigious academy, and she was a girl! Fortunately, she was quite smart also. There wasn't once that she could recall getting less than a B in a class, and really that was her not even trying. If you asked her why she didn't act as smart as she obviously was, she would simply tell you she was too lazy. If she wanted to work for it, she could get all A's. Or she could half-ass it and get B's.

The door behind her opened and she looked back to meet a brown-haired, blue-eyed boy standing in the doorway. He was attractive, tall and slim, and apparently very formal. But she wasn't here for that, she was here because of a dare. Not to mention she was sort of dressed up as a guy. Would anyone think she was strange? With the white hair and all, and her height! Being only five foot could really make people curious, but she supposed that she really wouldn't catch the attention of anyone. If only she could dye her hair or something, it would probably attract less attention. Though, she would wait until the first week was over. If a lot of people seemed to be mentioning the hair, she would dye it. If it wasn't attracting attention, it could stay.

"Hey Maxim," she never liked nicknames. "I'm Ashton." A few moments of awkward silence passed, at least it was awkward for her, being on the ground and all. After what seemed like forever, she pushed herself up and stuck a hand out for the other boy to shake. "I guess, uh, I'm your roommate." This is awkward, this is really awkward.

"Hey Maxim. I'm Ashton.” A rather awkward silence ensued. Maxim shifted his weight to the other foot.

β€œI guess, uh, I'm your roommate”

β€œVell, I guess that is so." He shook his new roommate’s hand. His hand was a lot smaller then Max’s…

Are you kidding me?! Loosen up! You’re driving a possible friend away.

Maxim chuckled lightly and rubbed the back of his neck. A warm smile appeared on his face. β€œSorry for being so stiff. I get it from my Father. I hope ve can be friends.” Wow. That was terrible.

Maxim turned, walked back to his luggage and began to set up his things. The first thing he did was put his computer on the desk on his side of the room. He plugged in his microphone. It was similar to what you would see in a radio stations. Max knew he probably wasn’t going to be doing very much recording in his room. He was good with computers, so he knew how to edit out background sounds if he needed to. After his computer was set up, he opened up his guitar cases. One was a regular acoustic, one anyone could own, light colored body, dark, polished neck, and golden strings. He placed it on a stand. He took out his electric next. It was also a common one, red and white body with a darker neck. Max also had an amp with him. It was about two feet tall and two feet wide. Max plugged it into the wall and positioned it next to his bed. His keyboard was so much simpler. Just put it onto its stand and put it somewhere out of the way. Max loved his keyboard. He could reprogram to keys to make any sound he wanted, but Max loved playing it like someone would a piano. This was his replacement for a Baby-Grand. Max grabbed his electric and plugged it into the amp. He strummed to few chords to make sure that it was in tune.

β€œI hope you don’t mind if I do a little test run.” Max said blatantly, not really waiting for a response. He began to play one of his favorite songs.

A hundred days have made me older,
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face.
A thousand lies have made me colder,
And I don't think I can look at this the same.
But all the miles that separate,
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face.

I'm here without you, baby,
But you're still on my lonely mind.
I think about you, baby,
And I dream about you all the time.
I'm here without you, baby,
But you're still with me in my dreams,
And tonight it's only you and me…


Max stopped there. He didn’t want to be rude, just randomly singing. Sure, the song had many other intruments in it, but with just a guitar, it seemed to much more... emotional. His voice was soothing and smooth, never cracking and always hitting the right pitch. His guitar was playing perfectly too, and Max was happy. He truly did love that song, but a deep, sorrowful sigh escaped his lips before it could be stopped. The song reminded him too much of his mother. He could remember when he recorded it, and it was for his mother. She also loved this song. She taught him how to play it.


This one should be a bit longer than my last... >~<

✍ ASHTON RUESS

Call her creepy, but she watched as her new roommate unpacked. Well, not intently or anything, but she couldn't help glancing over every once in awhile and checking out what else he was pulling out of his bag. As soon as the instruments were out, she grew somewhat excited. If he played, then it meant he probably would be a bit more lenient to letting her play in the room too. Unfortunately, she had been unable to bring her own equipment. The only plus of her parents never being home was that it meant they were always at work, which in turn meant that they had quite a bit of money to spend on things they really didn't need. Like putting an xbox in every room, and having multiple TV's everywhere, and getting very expensive laptops. Though it was usually her and her twin that purchased these things, and then the older brother got to yell at them when they returned home. He could never stay mad for long though, especially when she and Asher just sulked around the house, threatening to paint their room black unless he said he forgave them. Oftentimes he would just say he wasn't angry, and to forget about it. Which obviously just made the twin's more upset, because they knew their big brother. When he was really upset about something, he pretended like he didn't have a care in the world for it.

When the music started, she gave up trying to look busy and just watched him play. But it wasn't just watching him, she was watching the way his fingers danced over the strings, and she tried to figure out what it was about his playing that was so much different, so much better than when she played that song. As soon as he finished, she felt her lips turn upwards in a small smile. "Three Doors Down, Here Without You." She mused aloud- thank you captain obvious. "Brad Arnold is so attractive," as soon as she said it, she realized her mistake. "I mean, for a guy and all." This was going just, fantastically. At this rate she would be returning home in less than a week. Not only was she completing a dare here, but she had bets at home that were demanding she stay here until at least winter break. Though she knew all her brothers were betting "secretly" about how long she was going to last. The shortest time was two days, the longest was a month. Apparently they just had no faith in her- though if they heard her just a minute ago, well they might have a reason to lack faith in her guy-skills.

"Three Doors Down, Here Without You."
Maxim smiled. He was happy that someone knew the song.

"Brad Arnold is so attractive. I mean, for a guy and all."
Maxim stopped and blinked a few times. He opened his mouth then shut it.
Max, people have different opinions…

Max shrugged, then chuckled warmly. β€œI hope you don’t mind having a music addict as a roommate.” Max smirked a bit. He put his guitar onto a stand.

β€œI don’t just play guitar. I play electric bass, drums, piano and a few other instruments.” He stood up off of the bed and walked over to his keyboard. Plopping down, he switched it on and hit a few keys to make sure it was working.

β€œI’m into rock and pop.” He said placing his hands on the appropriate places. They hovered over the keys. β€œI hope you like OneRepublic.” He said, smiling a bit.

His hands danced across the keys, playing Secrets. He always hummed to this song, especially the intro.

β€œI need another story
Something to get off my chest
My life gets kinda boring
Need something that I can confess

'Til all my sleeves are stained red
From all the truth that I've said
Come by it honestly I swear
Thought you saw me wink, no
I've been on the brink, so

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I'm gonna give all my secrets away

This time don't need another perfect lie
Don't care if critics ever jump in line
I'm gonna give all my secrets away.”


Max knew that this song was played on cello/violin, but he had learned how to play on the piano, and finds it much easier.

He stopped and leaned back, cracking his fingers. β€œDo you play anything?” Max asked his roommate.
