In order to help everyone develop their character, I've come up with what should be a fun way to do it. Post a personal ad for your character. Keep in mind that you need to "be" the character when you're filling this out. All of this is meant to be written from their POV. If this works well, "Lucy" might hang out her shingle and start doing nickel consultations for our non-single characters.

Glasses or Contacts: No, my eyesight it pretty good without them. Children: Not yet. Although I definately think I'd like to adopt with Gallagher in the future. Familiar: Is this supposed to be about my family? Parents, older brother, assorted extended family. We really don't get along and I don't live with them anymore. A bit about you - Occupation/class: I'm a student. Almost finished with junior year. I don't have any other job right now. Languages: English. I also know some Latin. Hobbies: I like the arts. Acting, drawing, some writing. Anything with Gallagher. Personal Traits: Personality? Individualistic, accepting, tolerant, loving (towards good people, anyway). Self Description: Artistically inclined and creative, somewhat anti-social (well, I just don't like a lot of people I know...), slight and tall-ish, mostly intelligent. A lot of other things, too.

Most important childhood event that still effects him/her: Probably that time I first heard what my parents thought about gay people... Why?: That was when I first felt that there was something wrong with me that I should be ashamed of and hide, and I still am getting over that. Education: Currently in high school. After that I don't know. I will probably go to college, but I'm not sure of anything yet. Religion: Like I said, agnostic but raised in a very Christian family. Finances: My parents have a lot of money, but I'm not living there since I got thrown out, so I don't get any cash from them. I don't have a job of my own, so I'm not spending much right now. Gallagher is well-off enough to be able to support me but we live simply. Family - Mother: Diane Relationship with her: I haven't spoken to her since I left the house.

Over all Attitude: I try to stay positive. I think life is hard but the good parts are worth the pain. Most at ease when: with Gallagher. Most ill at ease when: Talking to my family. If granted one wish what would it be, why?: I would wish that I had a supportive family, since there is a lot going on in my life I'd like to be able to share with loved ones.
