Random extra goody stuff

Hello! Thought I'd post some of the extra info I'd been promising about the characters in my new story, The Reason Is You, to tide you over until I release the first chapter. So, here they all are....


Evelyn (Evie) Brooke
LTW: Become Mad Scientist
Major: Physics
Personality: 6,3,5,3,8 (Neat, shy, serious, nice)
Mother: Claudia Brooke
Father: David Brooke
Siblings: None
Name meaning: Evelyn: from an English surname derived from the name Aveline, which is a diminutive of Avila, meaning ‘desired’. Brooke: Denoting one who lives near a brook.
Bio: Quiet, shy, intelligent Evie is a little gullible and often believes what she’s told without questioning it, but she’s also friendly, caring and hard-working. She had a protective upbringing and her parents placed a lot of emphasis on doing well in her education, which was hardly necessary as Evie loves to learn. She wants to prove herself as a female in the mainly male-driven world of science, and plans to become a physicist when she leaves university.


Gabriella (Gabby) Jones
Aspiration: Romance
LTW: Become Rock God
Major: Literature
Personality: 4,6,4,6,5 (Sloppy, outgoing, lazy, playful)
Mother: Sara Jones
Father: Richard Jones
Siblings: Two younger sisters- Veronica Jones and Amelia Jones
Name meaning: Gabriella: Feminine form of Gabriel, meaning ‘strong man of God’. Jones: derived from the name Jon and meaning ‘son of John’.
Bio: Gabriella is used to living the easy life as a result of being the daughter of wealthy parents. Her family are famous for the parties they throw, especially Gabriella herself and her sister Veronica. Always confident and sure of herself, Gabriella is flirtatious and a little vain, but she’s good-hearted with it and will always stick up for her friends. She surprised everyone by getting excellent grades in college, and is now taking on a Literature degree at university.


Jesse Roberts
Aspiration: Family
LTW: Become Captain Hero
Major: Biology
Personality: 4,5,4,5,7 (Sloppy, lazy, nice)
Mother: Sarah Roberts
Father: George Roberts
Siblings: Younger sister- Charlotte Roberts
Name meaning: Jesse: From a Hebrew name meaning ‘gift’. Roberts: Derived from the name Robert meaning ‘bright fame’.
Bio: Jesse’s parents always brought him up to be polite, well-mannered and kind to others, and as a result of that Jesse has very strong ideals and values which are important to him. Having said that, he is usually relaxed and easy-going; sometimes too much so, as he has a tendency to speak without thinking. But his playful, friendly personality usually means he is forgiven soon enough. His parents are good friends with Evie’s parents, and Evie and Jesse have been friends since they were young.


Taylor Wood
Aspiration: Pleasure
LTW: Become Professional Party Guest
Major: Philosophy
Personality: 4,7,7,4,3 (Sloppy, outgoing, active, serious, grouchy)
Mother: Vanessa Wood
Father: Absent
Siblings: None
Name meaning: Taylor: An English surname denoting one who is a tailor. Wood: Denoting one who lived in or worked in a wood or forest.
Bio: Taylor’s father left not long after Taylor was born, meaning Taylor’s mother Vanessa brought him up by herself. However, having children had never really been on her agenda; she was too much a fan of late night partying and flirting. Without a father, and with his mother hardly ever around, Taylor grew up to have a somewhat wayward personality, and has inherited his mother’s flirtatious, pleasure-loving ways. His relationship with Gabriella is often rocky, and though Taylor can be charming and attentive when he wants to be, he is quick to take people for granted.


Zara Chen
Aspiration: Popularity
LTW: Become Hall of Famer
Major: Drama
Personality: 2,8,2,6,7 (Sloppy, outgoing, lazy, playful, nice)
Mother: Dead
Father: Dead
Siblings: None
Grandmother: Emi Chen
Name Meaning: Zara: Variant of Zahrah, an Arabic name meaning ‘beautiful flower’. Chen: From the name of an ancient region in China.
Bio: Zara is focused and driven in all aspects of her life... except for the academic aspects. Having always been a bit of a tomboy, she’d much rather go to the gym than the campus library, and can often be found kicking a ball around with Jesse, whom she’s known almost as long as Evie has. Stubbornness and pride runs in Zara’s family, and they are two of her most obvious traits. But she cares deeply about her friends and isn’t afraid to defend them against anyone.

Hope you like them! :)

My new story!!!

Yes, yes, it's finally here; I've only been working on it for two years... *sigh* Anyway, this is just the prologue, as I wanted to introduce the characters without that getting in the way of plotty stuff which will happen in Chapter 1; and also I'd like to see what people think of what I've done so far with regards to picture quality, writing quality and so on. I'll be honest; this prologue was not easy to write and many times writer's block got the better of me and I gave up. But I have so much planned for the actual story itself (I have enough plot worked out for three generations) that I didn't want to abandon it completely, so I pushed myself to at least write something and then I can improve on it in the actual story. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now :) Please let me know what you think of this over on my boolprop thread. Thanks for reading, if you do!
