Black, gothic-looking iron gates open, allowing your driver to enter the driveway of someone's large estate. You roll down the window, examining where you're going to live for the next month. You suddenly remember your conversation with your parents last night.

"A family friend/ business partner has offered to help... change you," your mother started. You looked at her with a bewildered expression. Change you? Why should they change you?

"See, we've noticed that you have a problem," your father continued. Problem? You opened your mouth, then closed it, not really knowing what to say.

"Your father and I are planning for you to take over the business, and we can't have you acting or looking like that when people offer your partnership," your mother said. This time, you are very confused.

"So, we're going to send you off to live with this family friend/ business partner, along with other teenagers," your mother concluded.


Okay, so maybe you do have a bit of a problem, like manners, or anger management, but that doesn't mean that you have to be sent away from your parents to live with someone you don't know for a whole month. You roll the window back up, as the car stopped in front of the mansion.

The mansion was brick white, and looked like it has two floors, which seemed big enough to fit an army. The white-paned windows glinted in the sun, with white lace curtains on the sides. The roof was light brown. It looked like most of the rooms had small black iron (like the gate) balconies. Around the house, the drive way circled a white, ceramic fountain in the middle of the front yard. The front of the house was surrounded by many bright colored flowers, giving the estate a very beautiful aura.

A woman who looked like she was in her mid-forties stepped out of the house, along with other younger people, who looked well-established. You notice other cars, similer to yours, parked in front of the mansion. People start to step out of their cars, but they make no other movement. The woman walks down the stairs and opens her arms.

"Welcome all! I'm Louise Vermont, and you may know me as your parent's business partner or close friend," she starts. "You, my friends, are all Wallflowers. The people behind me, are your Tutors." She put her hands on her hips and looked at everyone.

"Welcome to the Wallflower Project."

Information
Spoiler! :
Wallflowers: Teenagers from high-profile families, sent by their parents to change their behavior or appearance. They are sent due to future event: taking over the business, arranged marriage, etc. Wallflowers have problems in which affects their personality and appearance.

Tutors: Well-established people who have grown up with excellent etiquette and work with or know Louise. They are assigned to help their Wallflower change. They also come from high-profile families, and have been chosen by Louise to help with the Wallflower Project.


Information: Locations
Spoiler! :
Exterior/ Front Foyer: This is basically where the entrance leads to. A pebble driveway rounds the fountain, leading back outside the gate. There is a big fountain in the middle, which lights up at night. You will see many of Louise's favourite flowers all around the front foyer. There are many trees around too.

Exterior/ Backyard: The backyard is very large, with a patio and a pool. This is where Louise does her outdoor luncheons, and Wallflower exercising ( you'll learn about it later). On the far right, there are stables, where Louise keeps her horses. She usually has polo games going on, which will probably be what Louise will teach. There are mote of Louise's flowers out there too.

Living Room: Located in the first floor. This is where all Wallflowers and Tutors meet after breakfast. There are beige, leather couches and loveseats that are placed in a large square in the middle of the room. A soft rug is placed underneath the seats and coffee table. There's a plasma screen tv hanging above a fireplace. A chandelier is hanging above. You will most likely see many paintings in the living room.

Dining Hall/ Kitchen: Located across the living room, on the first floor. The dining hall has a long, mahogany table that can seat 15 people. There is also a fireplace in the dining hall. There is a door that connets the dining hall to the kitchen. The kitchen is simple. Just marble counters and a red stove and silver fridge. That's all there is to it.

Bathrooms: There are two bathrooms, one on each floor. One for the female Wallflowers and Tutors, and another one for the male Wallflowers and Tutors. It's large enough to fit four people at a time, to gussy up or something. Each bathroom has marble counters with a wide mirror hanging. The bathroom isn't as elaborate as the other rooms, but it still has a toilet, sink, and shower. As Louise would say, "be happy".

Rooms: There are ten separate rooms in total, eleven counting Louise. There is a narrow hallway, five doors on each side. The left is for the Tutors, and the right is for Wallflowers. Each room has a bed, a desk, and a walk-in closet, nothing else. Louise gave everyone a freedom to decorate their room, so Louise can judge how you are. ;)

Study Room: This is where all the Wallflowers and Tutors meet to learn. It's not like a classroom, but there are six tables, with two chairs on each side. Each pair would sit down and talk, and help them become what their parents want. In the beginning of each session, Louise explains the theme, such as etiquette and issues.


Rules:
- Mild cursing is fine, but please, no F-bombs this time.
- Romance is definitely fine! But please don't take it too far.
- Violence is fine, but don't make it too gory, or take it too far.
- You can make up to two characters: your Wallflower, and your Tutor. I'm an exception because I will also be playing Louise Vermont.
- Your Tutor could be another character of yours, you could talk to another player about it, or they could be an NPC.
- Please make all your posts as lengthy as possible! Possibly two paragraphs long.
- This is set in the modern time, 21st Century, 2011, got it?
- Don't kill anyone off. I don't intend on anyone being killed in this SB.
- No God-modding. It's annoying, and ruins the fun.
- Don't double post unless no one has posted in 24 hours.
- In the beginning of every post, please put: Name | Place
- All OOC posts must be directed to the DT.
- This SB is run by me, gleek456, so if there are any questions, feel free to PM me. :)

Perhaps you should change the age range? Because 18+ they don't have to do what their parents say - they're legal adults. Just a suggestion :)

Reserving a spot for a wallflower and tutor :)

Wallflower Profile:

Name: Rosemary Elizabet (Ee-liz-uh-bet) Midlin (Mid-lyn)

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Tutor: ___________________

Appearance: Rosemary has light blue, wavy hair. She has blue eyes just a shade darker than her hair. Rosemary has a septum piercing, lip piercing, and size six gage. She stands at five feet six inches, and is average weight. She's a pretty girl and dresses in all different ways - rocker one day, hippie another day, grunge another day, etc etc. She calls it "Me Style".
http://weheartit.com/entry/15904806/in-set/430635-girls

[b]Personality/Problem:
Personality - Rosemary is a very outgoing girl who can and will talk to anyone. She's nice to everyone, even if they don't deserve it, and she's rarely seen without a smile. She loves color and lots of it. She dreams of being a musician, but her parents constanly push that dream away. She keeps up hope, though. She loves life and she loves who she is. She's very stubborn though. She doesn't let the way people talk about her effect her - she doesn't much care about what other people's opinions on her are. She has a huge tendancy to role her eyes though - she doesn't even realize when she does it half the time.
Problem - She's extremely stubborn, she's dyslexic and her appearance and style isn't what her parents want.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Addicted to diet coke, nice to everyone - even if they don't deserve it, dyslexic, has a soft spot for cats, extremely stubborn

Strengths: Very good leader, knows what she wants, good singer and guitar player (she loves doing both), photography, extremely stubborn, naturally happy girl, can go off of little sleep

History: Rosemary grew up with her mom and daddy until she was ten. They were a normal family, not rich and not poor, and very happy. Rosemary's daddy died when she was ten, on her birthday actually. He got into a car accident, and was killed on impact. He had gone out to buy Rosemary pink hair dye, which he promised she could do when she turned ten if she was good. Her father had always been very into expressing yourself and being who you are. One years later, pink haired and bright clothes' Rosemary got a stepdad - whom she hates. He changed their entire way of life. Her mother became very strict and proper, and began to expect the same of Rosemary. But Rosemary still clings to her father and his views - that is why she does what she does. That, and she likes it. Rosemary now has two five year old sisters (twins) that are turning into the perfect little children her mom and stepdad always wanted. She is the only one in the family with the name Midlin - all of the rest are Morgans. Her family knows Louise because her stepdad has been friends with her since college.

Up for love? Yes

Other: None



Tutor Profile:

Name: David Michael Jenkins

Age: Turning 20 soon

Gender: Male

Wallflower:_____________________

Appearance: David stands at six feet one inch. He's pretty muscular, and he has puppy dog brown eyes. His hair is plain brown, and a little bit on the longer side. He has a little stubble, and he ALWAYS wears colorful/colored socks, though you probably won't ever be able to tell.
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_-8rMIn3ZfXE/T ... barnes.jpg

Personality: David is rarely seen without a smile. He has a lot of experience in "troubled" kids and "fixing" them. He's a really good listener and gives great advice. David is very cultured (his family constantly traveled and educated him about cultures) and can speak and read english (duh), french, spanish, and russian fluently. He's a really nice guy and loves to make jokes. He's big on telling stories, and likes to make people laugh. However, he knows when to be serious and can be strict. He balances it out.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: (At least one) Soft spot for the kids who are like he was

Strengths: Good at understanding, persuasion, advice giving, great listener,

History: David grew up with his fraternal twin brother, Shawn, who was everything his parents wanted, whereas David was far from it. David actually was sent to wallflower when he was sixteen, and that's how he knows Louise. When he finished up at Wallflower, his parents then decided nevermind, we're giving he business to your brother! You can be his back up! With nowhere to go and no want to go back home, he asked Louise for a job, which she gladly gave to him. He's been working here for two years now.

David used to be the kid who had a crazy appearance - dyed dreadlocks, goth-like clothes, hard core metal/screamo music, painted black nails, extremely pale skin. He was thought to be rebelling against his parents' way of life, but it was just who he was, what he liked. But he decided he had to grow up, give up his dreads and dream of being a musician.

Up for love? Yes

Other: He has pictures of the way he used to look like everywhere - in his wallet, in his bedroom, in his classroom (do we have classrooms?), etc etc. He keeps it so he never forgets who he was and is. If you ask him who it is, he'll tell you it was him. But he really has to trust you or want to help you to tell you his story (not in the history, I'm saving it XD)




*Anyone want to tutor Rosemary? Anyone want to be tutored by David? :D*
*Will finish/edit later XD*
*Hope it's okay! Lemme know if I need to change/edit anything! :D*
Live, Love, Laugh

Wallflower Profile:

Name: Gertrude Genevieve Davis, known as "Gigi" due to her two names.

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Tutor: ...

Appearance: Gigi has long, stringy looking, curly hair, with big brown eyes. She has one little faded streak of blue on the top of her head. Gigi has a pale complexion and rosy cheeks. She usually wears makeup a bit on the heavy side, and usually looks drunk or hungover. Gigi is pretty tall for her age, and has a slender figure. She is impeccably skinny. Gigi likes to wear... unusal choices of clothing. She has the style of an 80s citizen, and wears mis-matching clothing, to her parents' dismay. She wears many knee-length or above skirts, and sequined shirts with flats or boots to match. Gigi usually has a box of cigarettes in her pocket.

Spoiler! :
Image


Personality/Problem: Gigi is the girl who ditches major events, smokes in a corner, and drinks until she passes out. She usually sneaks out of the house whenever she gets grounded, and attends parties in which has major alcohol and smoking. Gigi is the most impolite girl ever, and every etiquette teacher who ever tried teaching her would scream and run out of the house, chanting, "you'll be hearing from my lawyer!" When she isn't smoking, or doing things she wasn't taught, she's a bit on the... ditzy side. I mean, she's smart and all, but she says lots of random things at the most random times. She slips in an oh wow everytime she talks.

Her problem is her drinking/smoking problem, and how impolite she is.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Gigi doesn't really listen to others, which might get her caught off guard whenever a big event comes up, without her knowing. She drinks and smokes 24/7, and doesn't listen to people. Whenever people find her, she's usually drunk or hungover, causing some slurs in her speaking.

Strengths: Gigi is adorable... when she actually makes herself look presentable. She can ride a horse very well, and has a horse named Ivory back home.

History: Gigi was born to Mary and John Davis, owners of Davis Entertainment, a movie producing company. She was the oldest child in her family, and had a little sister named Sara. Gigi and Sara were like two peas in a pod, and loved eachother's company. Gigi would always join Sara with her little tea parties, and imagine that Sara has her imaginary friends along with Sara. Sara looked up to Gigi, and Gigi always was the loving older sister, until Sara was diagnosed with leukemia, and died later.

Gigi was devestated, and could never forget how Sara died. Her mother and father began working at home, to make the house feel more... homey without Sara. Gigi began drinking and smoking, and sneaking out during major events such as a movie meeting with her parents, discussing her future, and of course, the time when she had to meet her business partner-to-be, Louise Vermont. Right after, Louise offered to help Gigi cope.

Up for love? Yes. :)

Other: Gigi has a British accent.

Tutor Profile:

Name: Sophia Leigh Vermont-Alexander

Age: 20

Gender: Female

Wallflower: ...

Appearance: Sophia was born with long, stringy red hair and brown eyes. She was cute when she was little, but then, when she entered high school, things changed- including her appearance. She had glasses, pig tails, acne, and she was a bit on the chubby side. Sophia hated her appearance, and got bullied a lot. That's when Aunt Louise comes in (she's like a fairy godmother to Sophia). Louise waited until Sophia reached the legal age for surgery, and offered to pay for Sophia's surgery (Sophia's idea). Sophia got a nose job, dyed her hair blonde, and got contacts. She went to Fat Camp and lost a ton of weight there. Sophia came back into the scene, confident then ever. She loves to bust out autumn colored sweaters, and wear lots of sundresses. She's a simple kind of girl, but dresses elegantly at the same time.

After/Before (Order):
Spoiler! :

Now:

tumblr_lso86bowVv1qe9kvao1_500_large.png (259.37 KiB) Viewed 70 times


Personality: Before, Sophia was the most quietest and shyest person ever, because she didn't really have any friends in her school years. She was always the girl who would eat in the stalls, because everyone would reject her. Sophia had a very low self-esteem, and even thought about killing herself once. She hated who she was, and always wanted to change herself, to get back at those people and feel better about herself. After her change, she grew a whole new personality.

Sophia came back confident and ready then ever. She grew up to be a very elegant and polite person, who speaks up for herself. She appears to be snobby, but isn't really. She just wants people to recognize her. Sophia became very much like her mother: kind, polite and intelligent. She is still quite sensitive, and would flinch or cry a bit at inappropriate comments, even if they weren't meant for her.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Sophia still has traumas from her past, and the only person who has proof of her past is Louise.

Strengths: Sophia listens very well, and is patient with whoever she's partnered up with.

History: Sophia was born to Peyton and Lawrence Vermont-Marksam, owners of Delicious Miracles, a fancy restaurant chain all over the United States. Her mother is an excellent chef, and her father is a business man who helps with the finance of the restaurant. She always visited her parents in the restaurants near her estate. Sophia had many friends in Elementary, until she reached high school.

In high school, she gained her horrid appearance, losing all her friends and being rejected by everyone in the school. She used to cry everyday once she reached home, and would try to fix her appearance. Nothing worked for her, and gave up, self esteem going lower then possible. When she met her Aunt Louise at a luncheon, Louise offered to help her with her problem, and promised to make her look presentable. So, Sophia became Louise's Wallflower (sort of) and by the end of the summer, she came to school looking different... beautifully different. Sophia turned 20, and was promised that she will take over the restaurant chain when her parents die. So, now, Sophia has decided to help her Aunt Louise with the new Wallflowers.

And finally...

Name: Louise Anya Vermont

Age: 44

Gender: Female

Wallflower: Teaches them all. :)

Appearance: Louise was born with long, blonde, curly hair and big greenish-blusish eyes. She has a tight jaw and rosy cheeks. You will always see her hair up like in the picture, or tied some other way. Louise has long, slender piano fingers and a kind smile. She looks like her older sister and her Neice, Sophia. Louise has a serious face and demeanor, and can intimidate anyone easily. Clothing wise, Louise likes to dress very elegantly for her age. She is never seen without a jewel on her neck, or a ring on her finger. Louise likes to wear gowns and mature clothing. She likes to wear lace, floral, and very lady-like clothes.

Spoiler! :
Image


Personality: Louise is a very demanding and polite woman. She knows what she wants, and will do anything to have it done. Louise is a very well-mannered person, and never drops her serious facade. She is the type of person you would never want to mess with. She is very close to her Sophia, and treats her as if she were her child. Louise tends to make sure everyone is doing what they are supposed to be doing, at the right times. She is extremely watchful, and will point out any flaws shown in front of her right on the spot. Louise would never yell or scream in public, she would have to talk to them in private in order to do so. She loves manners, and wishes that everyone would appreaciate it's use just as she does.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Louise watches everyone, and points out their flaws. She is a very serious woman.

Strengths: Louise is a very well-known woman in the city, and can pull strings to get what she wants.

History: Louise was born to Tess and Franklin Derrons, two very well-known business people. She was raised as the youngest, with her older sister Peyton. They had a pretty good relationship, and usually respected eachother. Her childhood and high school life was pretty normal, until she got married to Richard Vermont, a man going off to war.

Many would guess that it would've been a Dear John thing, and it was. Louise and Richard loved eachother so much, and attempted to have a child. Louise was expected to have a girl, and they were both so happy. That is, until Louise got a miscarriage. Louise and Richard both got into a devestating car crash, and were seriously injured. Both of them survived, except for the baby. Louise never tried to have another child again, and decided to help Peyton raise her child, Sophia.

Richard got accepted into war, and shortly after, got transported to Afghanistan, leaving Louise alone. Louise missed Richard everyday, and never stopped writing to him. Richard wrote back everyday, then twice a week, then once a week, then once a month. Louise expected that because of the war, but then Richard never wrote back ever since. When the time came, all the soldiers came back with their families, and Louise waited expectantly for Richard, but found out that he died from being shot. Louise was heartbroken, and prays to Richard's picture every night.

Up for love? No, she's a widow.

Wallflower

Name: Nellia Oakson
Age: 13
Gender: Female
Tutor: Seth Kyle Parker

Appearance: Very average-looking with medium-length brown hair and brown eyes. Average height, average weight. Has a bit more muscle than normal 13-year-old girls, but otherwise, well... average.

Personality/Problem: Multiple personality disorder: Nellia struggles with split personalities. She has reacurring major ones (they're even named for convinience) and others that do not have names and only show up once or twice (they're quite random, and can be anything from evil to an angel or surfer-type). There is not a single Nellie "personality" - she is all of them, and they are all her. They're just her sides very... concentrated.

Her main personalities include:
Knight - brave, kind, very capable, but can often find flaws in herself and obsess over them (sometimes becoming self-loathing)
Rygion - raging, has dark and lonely feelings for no reason, doesn't like to be around people for fear that she'll hurt them (emotionally or otherwise), has a strong sense of justice and will stand up for someone in need
Shay - nervous, fearful, and shy, likes to choose a person to stick to, likes to hide, but is good at comforting people
Ai - generally happy and outgoing, but tends to laugh too loud, or do other things to embarass herself (will sulk at her awkwardness for a bit, but is back on her feet after a while), has strong opinions and hates modern society with its promotion of shallow and provacative ideas
Dai - ???

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Some of her personality changes/split sides include personalities that are rude, clumsy, angry, flirtacious, eccentric, etc.

Strengths: Some of her sides include very affable, smart, kind, cool-headed, etc.

History: When Nellia was small, she was often told that emotions would get in her way. She was never allowed to act out and be free, so instead of arguing, she locked her feelings away. For years, she appeared to feel nothing, yet inside her were all those emotions, and they were sorting themselves. At the age of 9, the emotions were so concentrated they ended up forming multiple personalities.

Up for love? Probably not... she's a little young.

Other: Some of the docters she's been taken to have suggested that naming the personalities makes it worse, as this slims the chance of them ever bonding and completing Nellia. (If her tutor would like to do something with this information, be my guest)

Also... usually she'll keep a personality for half a day to a whole day, never less than a few hours unless something really sets her off.

(I'm kind of challenging myself with this character - I hope she comes out alright)

Wallflower

Name: Gage Russell Denning

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Tutor: Dustin

Appearance: His hair is a natural brown color, but he dies it black. He’s not the hardcore type, no nose rings or nail polish or anything, but he wears black shirts and jeans most of the time- putting little to no effort in his appearance. His eyes are green, but sometimes he wears darker contacts. He’s not very muscled, but he’s not chubby at all.

Personality/Problem: He tends to be very touchy and irritable (and quite rude), not the type of person that makes friends easily. Not that he wants to; the main problem his parents have with him is that he’s completely antisocial. He runs on emotion, but after doing something he can make it sound logical if confronted. He’s easily provoked into violence, especially if the person’s trying to make him mad.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: He doesn’t usually think before acting, or saying. And he just doesn’t care what the consequences are.

Strengths: He’s actually pretty smart, if he ever has to use it.

History: He was born to a rich family, and in the early years of his life, he was the center of attention. When his sister was born, his whole family began to adore her. As they got older, she became the polite, sweet child his parents wanted, and he eventually got the message that, no matter what, he was never going to be as good as her. So he stopped trying.
His mother knew Louise as a neighbor a long time ago, and thought that she might make his behavior improve.

Up for love? Yes, but not very easily won.

Other: Can speak some French, because he was forced to learn it as a child.

Tutor

Name: Seth Kyle Parker

Age: (18-25) 23

Gender: Male

Wallflower: Nellia

Appearance: Combed back blond hair, and blue eyes. Pale skinned. He’s very picky about his hair, if it gets
messed up a little he has to fix it. Always keeps himself as neat as possible.

Personality: He tries to pick his battles and be patient, but he doesn’t usually succeed. Unless something’s out of
place (he has slight OCD), he can be pretty nice to people that don’t make a habit of ticking him off.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Impatience is a trait that he’s been trying to work on, with no avail.

Strengths: When someone really grows on him, he'd do almost anything to help them.

History: He grew up in a rich home, and pretty much had a normal childhood. His cousin is a friend of Louise,
and she got him the job to give him something to do.

Up for love? Yes, but they’d have to be very... proper-like.

Other: n/a

Name: Oliver Cima (Sim-uh) -- Goes by either Ollie, October, or Oliver with his parents. He prefers October. (Why he chooses October is in the History)

Age: (14-17) 17

Gender: Male

Tutor: _____________

Appearance: October has naturally dark brown hair, but he has it dyed jet black. His hair is a little on the longer side, and is constantly in his eyes. October's eyes are such a dark blue they're almost black, but they're definitely blue. He stands at six foot one, and is on the skinnier side. He doesn't appear to have much muscle, but he's relatively strong, though not insanely so. He tends to wear gray or black skinny jeans and black or white t-shirts. His jeans are usually ripped, and if the rips are near each other he ties them together with colorful shoe laces.
He's never seen without one of his necklaces: One of which is on a leather cord and has a small, two inch long, yellow, plastic bird cage which he keeps a purple dinosaur in, and a mini purple Sharpie on the cord next to the cage. His other necklace is also on a leather cord, but it has a ton of mini sharpie on it, which he tends to just uncap and start drawing with.
October usually has hats on (like the one shown in the picture) that are a black or gray color. He's constantly drawing on himself, his clothes, his shoes, and anything he can get his hands on.
This is him:

And this is what he usually has drawn on his hands:

Personality/Problem: October has a passion for art. Ever since he was three, he's been drawing on anything he can get his hands on. He has a big problem with that - drawing on anything and everything. He's also really into 3D design, and makes strange little odds and ends into sculptures. He's a pretty nice guy as long as you don't upset him, but he's known to lash out if you annoy him constantly or are on his bad side. He has a huge sense of humor and is very sarcastic -- when it's mentioned he tends to say, "I'm bilangual. English, and Sarcasm. Sarcasm is my first language." He's a huge art buff, and is really into older music and bands (think 60s-80s). He loves his guitar, but not more than his art. He has some anger issues and is OCD with the fact that he can't stand seeing an empty space (As in a clean space not drawn on). He really likes to be around people and is actually a pretty outgoing guy. He's that guy who will start dancing in the middle of a crowded room or sing really loudly and badly not caring who hears. He loves who he is and he loves his art. He has a lot of trouble paying attention, and in school he's been failing every class except art and music classes.

Weaknesses/ Flaws: Has trouble paying attention, OCD about filling empty spaces, might blow up at you if you get on his bad side. Also, he can't sing to save his life, but he sings anyway. He also doesn't really excel in the muscle department. He also has trouble with personal space -- as in he's likely to come up and start drawing on you/your stuff

Strengths: Drawing, sculpting, very creative, humorous, has an artist's eye, has an ear for music, he's outgoing, and loves to be with people.

History: October was adopted when he was only a quarter of a year old by the Cima family. He knows absolutely nothing about his birth mother and father or why he was given up, and he's really looking forward to getting his file when he turns 18. When October was three, October started to get into art. He's not really sure why (he was three, he can't remember) but he pretty much has an obsession with it -- it's his passion. At age nine, October met his Uncle Jere for the first time (he moved to Scottland before October came into the picture.) Uncle Jere is an artist, and amazing at it. He gave October his first real set of art pencils, sat him down, and told him to draw something he saw. That's what really propelled his passion for art. As for his name, October: October has always known he's different. He also has always known his Mom and Dad have been trying to change him. When October was eight years old, he marched right up to his mother and father and said, "Mommy, Daddy, my new name is October." When asked why, he responded, "October is when everything starts to change. Everything is so much more dramatically different from all the other seasons. It's different, not like the others. Just like me." His parents, of course, refuse to use this name, and call him Oliver.
ALSO, his look is Uncle Jere inspired, though his personality is all his own. His parents know Louise through a family friend, who suggested her to them after meeting October.

Up for love? Sure, hahaha XD

Other: Watch your stuff unless you want it drawn on XD However, if you want something drawn on, he's your guy XD He's also pretty good at painting things on walls XD

Hm. You need another tutor? I guess I'll take the last male tutor!
We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? Because it was, you know. It was the best.
