So I Have This AU...

Post  Zeke on Wed Jul 13, 2011 12:45 pm

I plan on doing some stories with this, but I figured you guys might like the chance to play around with it. If you want to get involved in this particular idea, you will have to claim a character, but this sort of thing is the only time you'll have to do that.

So, the idea is... Southstuck. All the characters, kids, trolls, guardians and (humanized!)lusii alike live in a small, rural Texas town called Skaia. Everyone there knows each other, and ll the families are mostly friendly, and quirky in their own little ways. They enjoy a fairly simple life in Skaia, and don't usually venture into any of the bigger cities, because they have everything they need right there. Everyone has their own hopes and dreams, and everyone works hard to make ends meet.

Here's all the characters, along with my interpretations of them, though you can play them however you want, should you choose to join me for a RP session!
((Characters highlighted in red are taken))

John Egbert: Wants to go to clown school and join the circus. Loves going to the drive-in movie theater.
Robert "Dad" Egbert: Owns a bakery in town. Fully supportive of his son. Fond of cream pies.
Casey: John's pet salamander.
Dave Strider: Wants to be a famous country music singer. Plays the guitar. Hangs out at the Nitram horse farm a lot and plays for Tavros while he tends the horses.
Jeff "Bro" Strider: Does odd jobs around town; doesn't like to stick with one things for too long. Sometimes travels out of town to do ventriloquist acts.
Cal: Bro's ventriloquist puppet.
Rose Lalonde: Rather nosey. Really fond of her horse. Wants to own a horse farm someday.
Susannah "Mom" Lalaonde: A serious businesswoman who works in the nearest big town. Owns a few horses, mostly for her daughter.
Maplehoof: Rose's horse.
Jaspers: The Lalonde family barn cat.
Mutie: A deformed kitten owned by the Lalaondes. Jaspers is protective of it.
Jade Harley: Lives on a sheep farm. Grows vegetables in her greenhouse and takes them to market.
Thomas "Grampa" Harley: Sheep farmer and former big-game hunter. Very protective of Jade.
Halley: The Harley family sheepdog. Very loyal.
Karkat Vantas: Works with his father on a farm, where they do all their work by hand, rather than using expensive machines. Their produce is incredibly popular.
Clement Vantas: Owner of the Vantas farm. He is very old-fashioned, and kind of crabby. His produce is really popular, so he overcharges for it.
Tavros Nitram: Was born paralyzed from the knees down, and is stuck in a wheelchair. He lives on a horse farm, and loves riding and taking care of the horses. He and Rose want to open a horse farm together someday.
Thaddeus Nitram: A kind of squirrelly and nervous man, but he has the best horses for miles around. He works hard to support his disabled son.
Kanaya Maryam: Works with her mother as a seamstress. She makes most of the Lalondes' clothes.
Virginia Mayam: Works as a seamstress, and also runs the town's one small church.
Vriska Serket: Has inherited her mother's love of gambling and often arranges town-wide poker tournaments. She has a reputation for being kind of a bitch.
Sophronia Serket: Works at a casino a few towns away, and couldn't be happier with her job. Gambles away most of what she earns, and drinks a lot of what's left. Has an on-again-off-again relationship with Jeff Strider.
Eightball: Vriska's pet tarantula.
Nepeta Legion: Works in her father's animal rescue shelter and helps take care of the cats. Not-so-secretly, she wishes she were a cat herself. She is reputed to be slightly crazy.
Perry Legion: Runs an animal shelter, and brings in animals from all over the county. Is a very laid back, calm sort of guy.
Sollux Captor: A very smart kid, he gets the best grades out of everyone. He's always extorting favors from people in return for homework help or fixing their electronics.
Byron Captor: Not a very smart man, he can't even hold a steady job. Instead, he does odd jobs around town. He works with Bro Strider a lot of the time.
Gamzee Makara: He really wants to go to clown school with John. His father isn't around much, so he usually winds up drinking most of his meals. He's a very dangerous drunk.
Granville Makara: No one really knows what he does, because he's rarely ever in town. When he does come home it's usually only long enough to drop off some money for his son to live off of, drink himself stupid for a few nights, and leave again.
Feferi Piexes: Part of the richest family in town. Her mother is the mayor. She's the only real friend that the Amporas have.
Gladys Piexes: Mayor of Skaia. She's generally a pretty nice person, but people tend to stay out of her way anyway.
Eridan Ampora: His family owns the only decently sized lake around, so everyone always schmoozes up to him for swimming rights, even though he's actually very unpopular. He enjoys fishing with Feferi.
Silas Ampora: An unpopular sort of man. He owns oil fields outside of the town, and is very rich.
Aradia Megido: Helps her father with his archaeology work. A pretty private person, but friendly.
Roderick Megido: An archaeologist, his house is full of fossils and artifacts.
Slick: Aradia's pet frog.
Terezi Pyrope: A law student. She's blind, so she has to read using Braille, and she sits through a lot of oral presentations, though she has a short attention span.
Dorothy Pyrope: The town lawyer. She's very good, but most of her work actually comes from outside town.
Lemonsnout: Terezi's pet bearded dragon.
Ezekiel "Doc" Scratch: The town doctor. He lives alone in a mansion on the edge of town. He's pretty mysterious, but the kids like to visit him sometimes. He always seems to know when someone is coming over, or when there's an emergency.

Dave Strider and Doc Scratch are mine.
Dad Egbert, Mom Lalaonde and Tavros Nitram have been claimed by solarOrigins.

PM me or post here if you'd like to claim someone.
I'll make a board for this when we have a few more players.
