Tell a Friend
Hullo Everyone! I am Jeia, and new here (obviously). Jessi finally poked me enough, and here I am. I have been RPing for most of my adult life (8+ years), and am absolutely in love with this game so far.

I am bringing to you, for your playing pleasure, Akio Katayama. His full bio can be found here. Akio is a 12th grader in the Sonnier House. He loves to learn Languages, new spells, and reading is his absolute favorite thing. You could say he's a bit of a nerd. He was born in Japan, but moved to the US for secret, hush-hush reasons. He has been really great friends with Sibyl Ballantine for most of their school lives, but he needs more friends/enemies/his little sister... ya know, people to be super shy with.

It's great to meet you all, and I look forward to getting my feet wet!

I'm Katie, one of the Mods here, and I've got two kiddies for your consideration!

This journal is Rowan Cabot. She's a Junior in Sonnier house, more than a little bit of a nerd herself, also loves to read and is very into spell creation and theory, charms and the like. She's also decent in herbology and potions. Your typical shy, nerdy overachiever... except that she's got tattoos and has somehow managed to be dating a jock/troublemaker for almost a year. Definitely more than meets the eye with this one. I see them getting along rather well. Thoughts?

Then there is Vinnie Ciccarelli (Chick-uh-RELL-ee. I know, it's a mouthful XD) who is a Beauregard Junior and found in [info]che_bel_viso <--that journal there :) Vinnie is bisexual, or equal opportunity as he calls it, very positive and respectful (unless you're Leon <.<) and likes to flirt with everything that has a pulse. No, really. But he's a sweetie about it, and knows when it would be appreciated and when it wouldn't be. He'd have no problems with Akio, though I don't really see them being friends yet? We can always throw them together and see what happens?

Let me know what you think! And welcome welcome to the game!!!
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hello Katie! It's a pleasure to meet you (finally). I do think that Rowan and Akio could be great friends, especially study buddies. They have probably had many a very quiet study sessions.

As for Vinnie (love the last name, very unique), I think that a random run-in would be great. See how they mesh. XD

Thanks for the welcome. I am very excited!
cabotine From: [info]cabotine Date: April 12th, 2011 10:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, finally XD I have heard a lot about you~

Rowan speaks Latin as well as anyone alive really can, loves to sit and talk spells and philosophy and such, and likes to study quietly. If they're close enough, and have been for a little while, then there are things we can discuss ~in private~ that he might know about her.

Thanks for the compliment! LOL I stole it from a co-worker <.< I am ALWAYS up for random run-ins!

I am excited as well! Dancing now!
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 13th, 2011 12:44 am (UTC) (Link)
Sweet! XD I hope it was aaaallllll good!

Mmkays, I am down for that with Rowan. Email or IM me and we can discuss.

Hehe, nice. We've gotta come up with these random names somehow, right?
mylollipop From: [info]mylollipop Date: April 12th, 2011 07:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Weeeelcome to the fun house! I'm Ej! :D

I have three kiddies here. The first is this girl right here, Ginger McAvery. She is a Junior in Lalaurie, a cheerleader, totally up for getting to know you (well, maybe not as a Boyfriend unless it was something in the past). Basically, she's kind of a ditz, and known for being a touch catty; particularly around her bff/roommate Amber.

I also have Brian Redd ([info]littleredd). He is a Lalaurie Freshman, suffers from OCD and a bit of a stutter, is socially awkward, and has the hugest crush of Frankie right now. XD He mostly tries to stay out of people's way, and is kind of a loner. I don't know if they'd have ever met.

Lastly, but certainly not least: Leon Shaw ([info]mightbeclever), the resident asshole. He's also a Sonnier Senior so I am sure he an Akio know each other well-ish. No one else has really taken up this slot that I know of (unless I'm wrong and someone wants to correct me), but Leon used to be a somewhat decent guy. Then he just became a royal ass and everyone he used to be friends with has pretty much been kicked to the curb. Basically he is a moody, drunk/high loner.

It could be that he and Leon used to be friends, and then he pushed him away with his dickish nature? Y/N/M?
mylollipop From: [info]mylollipop Date: April 12th, 2011 07:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
*As she has a boyfriend.

Okay, maybe typing when Ive been up for 24 hours is not a good thing.
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 09:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah, the good 'ole days of staying up that long. How I don't miss it. XD

I think that Leon and Akio being past buds would be lovely. what kind of fallout do you think could have happened? General dickish-ness that Akio didn't approve of?
mightbeclever From: [info]mightbeclever Date: April 12th, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Probably Leon being a royal dick, and eventually blowing up on Akio about something stupid. He's pretty much in a mid-spiral out of control right now. Lost all by the bare minimal of friends (literally, I'm working on his Character Relationship Page right now. XD he has a whole three listed as Friend).
redwritinghood From: [info]redwritinghood Date: April 12th, 2011 07:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
JEIA! *glomp*

Jessi. Obv. I've mentioned I have four kiddies and you're kind of sort of only familiar with one of them :D This chickie here is Sibyl. You know about her. Bookwormish, nice, automatic writer, has a crush on him, blah blah :D

Secondly there is Keegan ([info]howemuchtrouble). Rienzi junior, Quodpot player, musican, and tends to get in trouble. Fairly nice guy, though and gets along with most people. Wouldn't really know Akio but would be nice enough.

Akio may Casey ([info]thatmachineboy) interesting. Although they really have very little way aside from random run ins to meet each other. Casey is a sophomore, a geek, bright as hell, and has some severe trouble with girls. He's the resident fix-it kid, pretty much.

Lastly I have Quinn ([info]whodoo) and she is, basically, a bitch XD I haven't done the schedule list so Akio may or may not have her in current classes but they'd know who one another are just by having classes in the past. She is also a senior, you see. And a bitch. Who probably wouldn't give a flip about your nerd :D

So welcome to the game, FINALLY. :D

Oh! And any wanted plotlines (like Emi) can be posted on the wanted page XD
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 09:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Jessimonster! XD When is miss Sib gonna ask Akio to the dance, hmm?

Oh hahaha, I like the 'who probably won't give a flip about your nerd' bit. So funny. You crack me up. I want Akio to get to know Casey. That would be funny.

And yes, I did see that for the wanted page. I will be on that!
redwritinghood From: [info]redwritinghood Date: April 12th, 2011 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can put it up in the next few minutes if you like~ I would tell you on AIM but you're not VISIBLE >.>

Well, yea. Quinn doesn't so much care for the nerdish quiet types it seems. Damned if I know why. Just turned out that way.

Certainly something can be arranged for Akio and Casey~
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 09:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Put it up bish. I am not on AIM currently because some friends are on their way over, and I dun wanna be rude. Gah. :P

That's funny. Because I can see you playing that so well. Haha!

Sounds gut to me. Whee!! I am happy I joined. Should have come sooner.
redwritinghood From: [info]redwritinghood Date: April 12th, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's up! It's up! Well you should pop on at SOME point so we can get you added to the BLAST chat. We have an invite waiting.

Damn right you should have come sooner >.>
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 10:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
I will tonight, as soon as they leave. And I will be visible. Gah, talk about pressure. :P

I know. I am sorry, and a crap friend. I will make sure to be better next time.
redwritinghood From: [info]redwritinghood Date: April 12th, 2011 10:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sweet :D You I am good for nothing more than enabling and pressure. You know this.

You're not a crappy friend either. You're here! Better late than never~
meandmyuke From: [info]meandmyuke Date: April 12th, 2011 07:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hi Jeia!!! I'm Becky one of the co-mods and I have six kiddos! Let me see if I can get this right then...

First off is this guy, Apple Evans who is a Rienzi sophomore. He would know Akio through international society. He's a chill little dude and thinks everyone is awesome.

Secondly is Sunny on [info]soleada. She is a bouncy Beauregard junior and quodpot captain. She might know Akio through honor society and she's super sweet to pretty much everyone but has been known to throw punches if people get too terribly close.

Then there's Michiko on [info]gimmeskittles. She is a Rienzi junior with an almost one year old son. She is bubbly and loud and has been spending some time around Sonnier as she is dating Gael Shaw, a Sonnier senior. At the very least they've run into each other.

Then there's Meka on [info]learntofly who is a Sonnier sophomore, who to some she has become lovingly known as Geeka. She probably knows Akio from book worms, honor society, and seeing him around Sonnier. She's a nerd and she's okay with that.

Fifthly is Sam on [info]samtheman a Beauregard junior, cheerleader, and nice guy. He was attacked by a werewolf and makes up fake stories about the scars. If Akio wants a chill dude to just hang out with, Sam is the guy.

And lastly is Yevgeni on [info]yevgeni who is a Sonnier freshman and the only other boy in book worms. He's quiet, he's got a good sense of humor, and he's a little bit of a nerd. I think, despite the age difference, they could be pretty good friends.

Phew! I know that was a lot! But welcome to the game! Glad to have you!!
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hello Becky! So nice to meet you!! Thanks for the add.

Man you have some interesting characters. Quite the nice array. I particularly like Michiko's user name. :P

I think that Meka, Yevgeni, and Sunny would be wonderful acquaintances to have. And I am also up for closer friendships, obviously.
gimmeskittles From: [info]gimmeskittles Date: April 13th, 2011 06:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nice to meet you too! And thanks! I'm kind of nuts when it comes to characters and making as many as I can xD

Awesome sauce! We should throw something up soon with one of those kiddos!

I also forgot to mention, Sam would probably at least know Akio because he had dated Sibyl a while back but it ended amicably. :D
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 16th, 2011 10:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can see! XD

YAY! Awesomesauce ftw! I am down for anything.

Gotcha. Akio <3's Sibyl. Hehe.
wantsthesky From: [info]wantsthesky Date: April 12th, 2011 08:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
HEY THERE! I am Polly/Pollu/Loppy! Welcome to our band of crazy!

This here is Colby Ayers! She's a Rienzi sophomore. She's really upbeat and outgoing and all kinds of rough and tumble (comes from having four older brothers, after all). I'm not sure if they really know each other all too well, but she'd be nice and friendly if they did ever bump into each other!

Next is Alexander Van Rensselaer ([info]xanvanren), a Lalaurie freshman and Quinn's younger brother. He's kind of a bit of a brat, like a massive one. Entitled little rich boy and all that jazz. Considering the difference in their ages, I'm not sure they really know each other that well.

Then there's Gabriel Maddox ([info]gaybee), a Lalaurie junior. Somewhat of a queen (literally) and a massive Gaga fan, he's a member of the 'popular and gossipy' crowd. He's perfectly nice and friendly to your face, but can be a total bitch about you behind your back. Don't really know if they know each other, but Akio is very pretty so Gabe probably has flirted with him at least once or twice or more if their paths have crossed.

Last but not least there's Gael Shaw ([info]mustbecharming), the other half of the Shaw twins and also a Sonnier senior. He is the polar opposite of his brother, friendly and charming where Leon is taciturn and abrasive. He's a Quodpot player, and a member of the International Club as well. Completely open to them being friends if that's okay with you? :)
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 12th, 2011 09:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hey!! Thanks for the welcome! I feel loved. :D

I think Gael and Akio being friends is peachy keen, jelly bean! He is going to be 'used to be friends' with Leon. So much fun.
porcelinaofvast From: [info]porcelinaofvast Date: April 13th, 2011 12:38 am (UTC) (Link)
Helloooooo darling and welcome to the game! I'm Amie, whom you just met in chat, and a quick bit on my five girls are as follows;

Tatum Donnelly [[info]porcelinaofvast] here is first. She's a Sonnier junior, quiet and awkward, a fraternal twin, afraid of her own shadow, marijuana enthusiast, and total nerd. She's also very gay but not in anyone's face with it. She loves video games, comic books, and zombies. She has a small circle of friends, but she's really quite nice once you get to know her. She gets bullied a fair bit, and is pretty much the resident doormat on most days.

Next, I have Hunter Sommer [[info]itsnotjessica]. She's a Rienzi senior, captain of their quodpot team, blonde, Southern, and a loud mouth. She loves her sports, working out, and also loves her friends fiercely and loyally, but can kind of end up as your bff or your worst enemy, depending on her impression of you. She doesn't take shit from anyone, speaks her mind, and is very serious about her athletics. She's kind of ridiculous, loves to party, and doesn't understand backing down. Like, ever. She's the extreme extrovert.

Following her is Jenny Parry [[info]867_5309]. She's a junior in Beauregard, a cheerleader, and also involved with choir & wizard chess club. She's an identical twin, adopted, epileptic, and generally very friendly. She's crazy about Madonna and Glee, and usually spends most of her time hanging around with her sister or her fellow nerdy girls. She loves talking to pretty much anybody!

After her comes Erica Redd [[info]hardluckwoman]. She's a sophomore in Lalaurie, plays for their quodpot team, and comes from an affluent but distant family. She is true to her friends, but can be a little two-faced. She tends to run through boyfriends like water. She has celiac disease among other allergies, and she is madly in love with KISS. Her father was also arrested a few years ago for a series of murders involving local muggle women.

Last of all is Brody Rogers [[info]almost_famous. She's a Beauregard junior from a huge family, plays quodpot for their team, and is the worst herbology club member ever. She is a Facebook stalker who is terrified of the dark and is obsessed with getting famous. She loves all forms of art and performing, and though she can be sort of pompous, she means well and has a big heart.

So thems the ladies, just lemme know what's good with relations/plotting and whatnot and hopefully we'll play together soon!
cantspell From: [info]cantspell Date: April 13th, 2011 03:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Howdy and welcome! I'm Antha and I have two characters in the game.

This journal is Ciaran Stoyanov, my sulky punk. He transferred from Denver Wizarding Prep last September and it is rumoured that he is a murderer/drug dealer/both. He's in Rienzi house, grade 10. He was held back two years at his old school, so he's older (and taller) than everyone in his year. He's not very academic but he excels in CoMC and Herbology. Maybe he can help Akio out with the latter?

My other character is Avery Valentine ([info]iliketokissboys), an 11th grader in Lalaurie. He's a posh, pureblooded British import and he tends to look down on most people outside of his little group, unless they're pretty. He has a massive ego and a venomous tongue and he's also kind of...aggressively gay. Avery thinks Akio is quite pretty, so he might bother him a bit because he loves to make straight boys feel uncomfortable. Apologies in advance. :/
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 13th, 2011 04:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hi Antha!! I am excited to meet you!

Absolutely Ciaran can help Akio. Poor guy... *pets him*

I have read some threads with Avery. Love him! Bwahaha... make him feel uncomfortable! I love it. He doesn't. But he'll get over it.
anastas From: [info]anastas Date: April 15th, 2011 07:04 am (UTC) (Link)
Hi. I'm Carol. I'm on hiatus at the moment. I'm not sure who I'll come back with when I come back, but at the moment I have four.

This guy, Anastas (Lalaurie senior, Russian boywhore), Abernathy Ford ([info]atotheb, Rienzi junior, North country tomboy), [info]jools Le Gallo (Sonnier senior, intense, secretly a biological boy), and Marina Ruiz ([info]aguas_santas, Rienzi junior, NOLA native, secret lesbian and cheerleader).

When I'm up for play I'm up for anything.
akio From: [info]akio Date: April 15th, 2011 10:41 am (UTC) (Link)
I say you come back with all four!! XD I look forward to playing with any of your pups when you return.
