Create a Family! Twist!

I will post a picture (or, rather, a link–my computer isn’t as fancy as I imagine most of yours are ) and give a full name and age for my fictional person. I will then write a paragraph, give or take, about the person. The next poster will create a person that is related to the previous one in some way (it does not have to be by blood–it could be a neighbor, friend, coworker, anything). Ready?

His friend group is a mixture of people, studying a variety of subjects, and he’s ultimately closest with his roommate.

Joanna ‘[name_u]Josie[/name_u]’ [name_f]Zoey[/name_f] Carpenter (20) is [name_f]Leila[/name_f]’s best friend and a fellow science major, albeit she’s studying biochemistry, with hopes on becoming a toxicologist. The two girls’ became close when they were fourteen after being sat next to one another at school, and clicked immediately. [name_u]Josie[/name_u]’s from a large family and keeps in regular contact with them, being the third of six children, however she’s never felt any need to compete with her siblings; in part thanks to being happy in her own company. She shares [name_f]Leila[/name_f]’s love of thrifting - going on weekends when she isn’t working part time as a waitress - and has a knack for finding the best quality items for low prices.

Robin Felix Metzger (20) is Josie’s boyfriend and a history student, who plans on specialising in the medieval period - albeit his outgoing and charismatic nature means that people don’t assume he’s academic upon their first meeting. Robin’s a close friend of Raul as well, loving urban exploring, alongside climbing and learning about obscure trivia. Like Josie’s, he’s from a large family - being the second eldest of five - and they’re currently trying to figure out how to handle Christmas.

[name_u]Mosley[/name_u] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] Metzger (1) is Robin’s niece, delivered by [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] to Robin’s older brother. Though she is little she is mighty and has quite the personality. She loves to wiggle around and dance. She is very close with her uncle & loves him very much. On occasion [name_u]Robin[/name_u] takes her out on little dates just the two of them to nearby playgrounds & children’s museums. They like to play in the sand boxes together.

Mosley’s dad works at a local mall at the food court & her mom works night shift at a local grocery store. The two of them met in high school as part of the same school club. They are not currently engaged or married, but plan to take that next step in the near future.

[name_u]Parker[/name_u] [name_m]Aaron[/name_m] Metzger (26) is Mosley’s father and the eldest Metzger sibling. Having studied geography at college, [name_u]Parker[/name_u] does face some frustrations with the fact there’s limited career paths attached to his degree, resulting in him working at the food court while he looks for environmental department jobs. Although he knows teaching is the likeliest field of work for him, [name_u]Parker[/name_u] doesn’t think he’d enjoy that path nor would he work well as a teacher - as while he’s always looked out for and done his best to guide his younger siblings, officially tutoring dozens of children truly scares him.

A lot of people assume [name_u]Parker[/name_u] and his girlfriend dropped out of school immediately due to having been together for so long, something that amuses them both, as really they’ve just made their relationship work through college and now into their lives as parents. They’re both mad about outdoor swimming specifically and met through the school’s non-competitive dive club, bonding due to their very easygoing outlook on practice and lack of need for perfectionism.

For his younger siblings, Parker’s always been the listening ear and shoulder to cry on, providing lots of advice, support and caring to his younger siblings. He’s actually driven two of his younger siblings to recitals and competitions before if their parents have been busy running the family business - a petrol station/garage, which one of his sister’s is planning on taking over when she’s older - always bringing [name_u]Mosley[/name_u] along on these outings as she loves being around her extended family. [name_u]Parker[/name_u] is also a born romantic and always takes time for him and his girlfriend to go on date nights or just have moments alone together once their daughter’s gone to sleep.

[name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_u]Maria[/name_u] [name_m]Bartlett[/name_m] (27) is Parker’s girlfriend and Mosley’s mother. She’s a former Creative Writing major who works at a grocery store while she finishes writing and editing her first novel. [name_u]Holly[/name_u] is a free spirit who’s very energetic and social, and in addition to swimming also participates in a weekly dance class. She’s also easily bored and historically has had trouble staying in one place or at one job, though since becoming a mother, she’s tried to become more of a stable parent to her daughter, and she is eternally thankful that she has [name_u]Parker[/name_u] to be her rock whenever she needs him.

[name_u]Holly[/name_u] comes from a very traditional and wealthy family (a doctor mother and a lawyer father) and as an only child she had her life laid out for her by her parents (the only choice she was given was law school or medical school). Her parents are bitterly disappointed by their daughter choosing her own path in life, and haven’t spoken to her in a few years, not even to meet their granddaughter. While [name_u]Holly[/name_u] sometimes wishes she had a better relationship with her family, she wouldn’t change anything about her life for the world!

[name_u]Leighton[/name_u] [name_f]Nina[/name_f] Metzger (19) is Holly’s (currently) unofficial sister-in-law and the third child of her parents, whose just started art school, where she’s double majoring in illustration and comic book/concept art. [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] was always the sibling who loved superheroes growing up - even more than her older brothers; especially the Invisible Woman and Starfire, who she aspired to be like - determined her powers would emerge when she was little, much to the amusement of her parents. This would influence her artistic pursuits, always writing her own stories and illustrating them, eventually taking on a more comic book esq. structure as she grew in confidence, before deciding - in her mid-teens - this was the career she wanted to pursue.

Now completing her degree, [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] is intent on increasing inclusivity in the comic industry and combating the exclusive mentality certain people hold. She’s been working on her own unofficial series but is very secretive about this, even when it comes to her family knowing how things are shaping up, having decided it’ll only be revealed more once she feels things are perfected. Having her own drivers license, [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] travels as frequently as possible, not just coming home to see her family but also going to music events or protests with friends, as she’s very strong in her convictions. [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] also belongs to the LGTBQIA+ community, being bisexual, and is currently in the early stages of dating another art student, albeit they’re on different courses.

Again it turns out I didn’t even realise this one until over a month later. :smile_cat: This cat says I’m a fool and so do I.

Warning: Deceased character; near-death of a child.

[name_u]Harlan[/name_u] [name_u]Blaze[/name_u] [name_m]Johnson[/name_m] (27 [name_u]March[/name_u] 1994—1 [name_f]May[/name_f] 2022, aged 28) was an arcade co-owner of the arcade previously called C’s [name_u]Epic[/name_u] Arcade at the mall Leighton’s brother [name_u]Parker[/name_u] works at. The arcade was often visited by [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] as one of her places to travel. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] always got along with the Metzger family and while [name_u]Robin[/name_u] is usually busy, he enjoys coming to the arcade to play trivia games. He’s also a thrift shop fan too, selling his unwanted clothes to thrift stores. Many of the arcade games were superhero-related and [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] and her partner loved to play them. [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] currently has the high score on many arcade games and her partner adores this about her. The arcade is a small business in the mall that is frequented by average folk, but once [name_m]Rorrie[/name_m] [name_m]Travis[/name_m], an actor from LA, visited the arcade alongside his girlfriend [name_u]Carmen[/name_u] and fans liked seeing them there. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] loved computer science but loved all sorts of sciences, especially [name_f]Leila[/name_f] and Josie‘s interests in botany and biochemistry. He jokes that he never goes outside since he always played arcade games, but this is false and he was very pro-science. The arcade has membership deals and makes a special cheaper membership bundle for students. He’s exceptionally a fan of Raul’s love in astrophysics and loves the geeky spacial sciences most. While [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] is the co-owner, the owner is female and basically an older [name_u]Leighton[/name_u], so [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] very much enjoys seeing her as well. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] loves seeing women in leading roles and successful careers, being the older brother of midwife [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] [name_m]Johnson[/name_m]. He likes that [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] delivered [name_u]Parker[/name_u] and Holly’s baby and wished he knew them more, seeing that [name_u]Parker[/name_u] also worked at the mall, but they didn’t see each other every day since [name_u]Parker[/name_u] was working in the food court. However Mosley’s cutesy baby demeanour always put [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] in a good mood.

[name_u]Harlan[/name_u] was a chill individual and liked to get along with people. He and the arcade owner were practically best friends. He has a rare collection of old comic books that were shared among him and his great-grandfather. His rarest one was one of the earliest comic books, which his great-grandfather traded to him for a bundle of limited-edition 1950s comics. His great-grandfather is 100 years old so he has had a lifetime of collecting. However [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] and his great-grandfather are serious collectors and won’t let random people touch their comic books. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] has only once let someone borrow a comic book from his stash, and that was to [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] because [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] had a sense she was a true comic book fan. It was also likely because this comic book was the 1961 book Fantastic [name_u]Four[/name_u] #1, which debuted Invisible Woman.

[name_u]Harlan[/name_u] often joked that he “never got fresh air” due to his love for gaming but this wasn’t the truth and people knew this, now more than ever. While having on his day off from working, he went hiking in the local park. He walked for most of the time before relaxing by the river to eat lunch. A family was there and there were two small children, one who was a 4-year-old girl and one who was a baby boy. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] smiled, thinking about how they reminded him of [name_u]Mosley[/name_u]. The smile quickly turned into a face of panic when the 4-year-old girl walked too close to the river and fell in. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] immediately jumped in and swam over to her, grabbing her and safely moving her to land, where her parents would hug her and cry that she nearly died but was saved. However for [name_u]Harlan[/name_u], he was still submerged in the water at that point, being pulled by currents until he himself drowned. The little girl’s parents were petrified he had died but were forever grateful he saved their daughter and always wanted to repay Harlan’s family. [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] was shocked when she heard of his death but deep down, knew he was always a hero. Leighton’s girlfriend had comforted her through the trauma. [name_u]Leighton[/name_u] asked [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] what she should do with the comic book he lent her and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] said, “Honestly keep it. He never lets people do this so if he did that, he knows you’re a true fan and he’d want you to have it.” [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] had been very dejected over her brother’s death but the family [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] helped was always so nice to her, especially since she helped deliver their baby son. The Metzger siblings used this to feel happy that they are a family and get to still see each other every day. [name_u]Mosley[/name_u] has helped put some light back into [name_u]Parker[/name_u] and Holly’s life by dancing around and being playful. The arcade’s owner admitted she had secretly been falling for [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] but that he would unfortunately never know. In his honour, the arcade has since been renamed C and H’s [name_u]Epic[/name_u] Arcade.

[name_u]Waverly[/name_u] Hye-Won “Wave” [name_u]Kim[/name_u] (6) is the sassy, spunky little girl that [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] saved two years ago. [name_m]Born[/name_m] to a young couple in Toronto, [name_f]Canada[/name_f], [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] was never poor or rich but she lives a nice life with her parents and younger brother. Her mother is a talented illustrator and gallery artist who drew the images for a children’s book, which had moderate success, and her father is a mechanic- he has a knack for fixing broken things, mainly devices. [name_u]Wave[/name_u] loves playing with her little brother. The whole drowning shenanigan started when her parents decided to get out of the city and take an international vacation- the USA sounded like a nice place to go, considering it’s got lots of nice rural areas that aren’t too cold, and her father’s parents live there. So off they went on their nice little road trip. They did everything- hiking, going and getting ice cream, swimming in Wave’s father’s parents’ pool, pony riding- [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] loved ponies and still does to this day. The last day of their vacation approached, and her parents had one last idea- a picnic. [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] and her brother were super excited- they were not only going on a picnic, but one by a lake. How exciting!! The family went into Wave’s dad’s old orange minivan and pulled up into the beautiful forest, admiring the blossoms and rivers until they reached their picnicking spot, deep within the meadow. [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] was coincidentally at the spot at the same time. [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] decided to go pick some wildflowers for her mommy- purple wildflowers, as [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] knows her mom’s favorite color is purple. Without thinking, poor [name_u]Wave[/name_u] took a wrong step and fell in the lake- [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] managed to fish her out of the lake and rescue her. When Wave’s parents learned of Harlan’s unfortunate death, they are shocked and horrified- after all, how could such a kind and gentle person die so young? [name_u]Waverly[/name_u], her family and her little brother attended the funeral out of respect and gratitude- after all, [name_u]Waverly[/name_u] may not have been alive if [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] hadn’t stepped in.

[name_u]Blaire[/name_u] and Waverly’s own mother we’re very close friends in their childhood and even dated at one point, jokingly referring to that time period as the friend awakening. [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] is a passionate artist herself and enjoys creating abstract works of art on large canvases. She feels that they convey her emotions and treats them as “her babies.” In addition to [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] also had a child at the tender age of 14. That child is now 18 years old and in spite of Blaire’s young age at the time of conception, she loves her children equally and would do anything to support and help them. [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] engaged in risky behaviors as a child due to poor parenting and vowed to treat her own kids differently- she’s still in contact with her first lover and they’re good friends, and she’s hopelessly in love with her husband, June’s father.

Uncensored warning for bullying.

[name_u]Colby[/name_u] [name_m]Chad[/name_m] Karlton (32) is Blaire’s husband and proud father to [name_f]Junie[/name_f] and stepfather to Blaire’s first child. While he’s never been a teen father, his parents had him when they were teens so he understands what teen parents go through. Being raised by teen parents made it harder for him to go to college, so [name_u]Colby[/name_u] got a job and postponed college but is also now recently going back to university to study astrophysics like [name_m]Raul[/name_m]. He is working at the mall’s sports apparel shop. [name_u]Colby[/name_u] has dealt with bullies who constantly told him he would “be a teen father” and “not graduate high school”, which [name_u]Colby[/name_u] has proven them wrong. Unfortunately in adulthood, those same bullies claimed he and [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] wouldn’t last since she was a former teen mother, was still on good terms with the father of her first child, and used to be dating Wave’s mother. Of course [name_u]Colby[/name_u] once again proved his bullies wrong and he could not be more in love with [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] than he is. He’s very close with [name_f]Junie[/name_f] and feels a sense of trust with [name_u]Wave[/name_u], knowing [name_u]Wave[/name_u] would never be a bully to [name_f]Junie[/name_f] and the two would always stay true friends. While [name_u]Colby[/name_u] is a mall employee and astrophysics student, it doesn’t mean he’s not into art and he loves visiting the art gallery with [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] and with Wave’s mother and finds it his favourite place to relax. He’s also close with Blaire’s first child, and remains loving and supporting. [name_u]Colby[/name_u] is married to a woman but is proudly pansexual and lives his life with love stronger than hate.

So-yeon “Rachel” [name_u]Park[/name_u] (27) is Waverly’s mom and the good friend of [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] and [name_u]Colby[/name_u] Karlton. She’s forever grateful to [name_u]Harlan[/name_u] for saving her daughter, and she wishes he were still alive and that the tragedy never took place. Being much younger than [name_u]Blaire[/name_u], she often looked up to [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] and saw her as a role model- the two grew up on the same street, and [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] has always been Blaire’s accomplice, partner in crime if you will. The two started dating in their teens- it didn’t work out very well as they had different goals in life, so they stayed friends and broke it off. [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] had dated many other girls and boys before she met her husband- the two instantly clicked. When she told him about her gig as a gallery artist, instead of being turned away by a lack of stability, her husband was intrigued. The two married a year later on his father’s small farm in the USA- [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] was the bridesmaid, and [name_u]Colby[/name_u] was the ring bearer.

Later, they had [name_u]Waverly[/name_u], and then her little brother, and the two are perfectly content with their life now- though [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] and her husband are hoping for three or four kids in the future…

[name_m]Joon[/name_m] [name_u]Park[/name_u] (27) is Rachel’s husband and father to their two children. He works as a mechanic and loves fixing devices and knowing how stuff works. Like [name_u]Harlan[/name_u], [name_m]Joon[/name_m] likes to be a “proud geek” also wishes he could’ve lived and is convinced they’d be great friends but madly respects him. He and [name_u]Colby[/name_u] get along well and love seeing each other’s families, especially [name_f]Junie[/name_f] due to their similar names. [name_m]Joon[/name_m] pities [name_u]Colby[/name_u] for being bullied and loves his resilience especially now since there’s a girl in [name_u]Wave[/name_u] and Junie’s class who keeps getting in trouble for arguing and picking fights with the teacher and other students in the class. She’s not necessarily a bully but has argued with [name_u]Wave[/name_u] and [name_f]Junie[/name_f] and been rather rude. [name_m]Joon[/name_m] hopes she can redeem herself as she is just a 6-year-old, not a scoundrel but wishes she was better behaved for the sake of everybody. While [name_m]Joon[/name_m] is a very wary person, he isn’t strict or overbearing and his cautious mindset is due to his daughter almost dying and due to the fact that he’d never want to see her get bullied. He and [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] connect very deeply and always love each other, saying so and complimenting each other daily. He loves her interest in the arts and as a gallery artist. [name_m]Joon[/name_m] too thinks he and [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] will have more kids someday, with [name_u]Wave[/name_u] agreeing, suggesting “Name them [name_f]Wildflower[/name_f] if they’re girls or [name_u]Wild[/name_u] if they’re boys!” Wave’s little brother wants to stay the youngest so he usually doesn’t get involved in baby talks, but he wants the baby named after him. [name_f]Junie[/name_f] has also pitched in with ideas, saying to name a baby “Polly” after her favourite doll if it’s a girl or to name it “Room” regardless of gender so the baby doesn’t forget to clean its room when it grows up like she always forget. The couple laughs with the children’s silly suggestions but they know they aren’t actually expecting a baby right now…or are they? [name_f]Rachel[/name_f] has some suspicions she may be pregnant and [name_m]Joon[/name_m] is catching on. However she only just believes this and doesn’t know for sure; maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. Regardless the couple is grateful for their love and family and enjoy every moment.
