Trans FAHC!Jack backstory where she’d always known something was off about her. She’d always felt like an outsider around other guys, especially her best friend Geoff, who’d she known since second grade, and she had developed self-esteem issues because she hated the body she was in. She assumed she was gay at a young age and kept that secret to herself in fear of losing friends and family. But still, that didn’t fill the emptiness inside her.
It was around the end of middle school when she learned about the LGBT+ community, specifically the T. She’d spend hours online researching what being transgender meant and she knew she’d finally found a word to describe what she was feeling.
A few days later, she decides on the name Jacklyn and starts to plan her future out if she were to transition. Still afraid of what others would think, she keeps this to herself but still does little things to make herself feel feminine.
She’d spend night at home during middle school painting her fingernails and admiring how beautiful each color looked on her. Some nights she’d sneak into her mother’s bathroom and practice applying makeup. She’d sneak dresses into the changing room at the mall and admire how much more she loved her body in them.
By freshman year of high school, she had grown out her hair and usually kept it up in a bun. She had perfected what little makeup she had to use and her smokey eye was phenomenal. She still hadn’t come out to Geoff and it was starting to take a toll on her that she hadn’t told her best friend since childhood that she was transgender. It didn’t help that she had developed feelings for him.
Then one Friday night they were sitting in Geoff’s truck, listening to the football game from their high school’s parking lot. They had the windows down and they’d eaten three burgers each and had a jumbo coke in each cup holder. Geoff was going on and on about how if he was on the team, he would have doubled the score but all Jack could do was stare at him. In the middle on Geoff’s sentence on how the quarterback is a complete asshole anyway and cheats on all his tests, Jack leaned over and kissed him. She pulled away quickly and she could feel her cheeks turning bright red. To Jack’s surprise, Geoff wasn’t upset or shocked or anything. Instead, Geoff calmly looks over at her and says, “Look, you’re my best friend, and I love you, but I’m not gay dude.”
“I’m not either.”
Geoff’s head turned in confusion and Jack let out a shaky sigh. She explained to her best friend how she felt like a prisoner in her own body and that the reason she grows her hair out is so she can feel a little more feminine and sometimes she paints her nails bright red and that she feels more comfortable in a dress than a suit and tie. She told him that she was transgender and that all she hoped is that Geoff could just understand that she was the same Jack, just a girl and that he would love her.
“You’re my best friend, Jack. I love you no matter what. I’ll always support you.”
That night, she felt so much weight rise off her shoulders.
Geoff would take her to the mall to try on dresses and even bought one for her. He let her swatch makeup on his arms and store it at his house in secret. He even braided her hair, which she had no idea he could do so well.
All was well and Jack thought it was time to tell his parents. So, one day over dinner, she came down in makeup and braids and her parents were appalled. They screamed and yelled and cried, saying things like “Where did my baby boy go?!”
“Your baby boy was never here! I was never a boy and I never will be!”
They kicked her out. She left that night and showed up at Geoff’s door crying. He held her and told her that she didn’t that in her life anyway. She was strong and that no matter what, he still loved and supported her.
They started dating that night.
They moved away from their small town and moved to Los Santos where Jack began her transition. Geoff had never seen her happier. In Los Santos, she was able to start over and express herself however she wanted to. She was finally happy.
One by one, the couple took in other kids. The scrawny Brit who had arrived in Los Santos for a job just to find out he’d been tricked and had been robbed. Jack took him in and cared to his wounds and gave him food and a bed. Needless he overstayed his welcome but Jack and Geoff didn’t care one bit.
Next, they took in a redheaded New Jerseyan who had come to the city to run from the law. They let him hide out in their place after he burst into their apartment thinking he was a floor above because the LSPD were on him again. Luckily, he was in their apartment that night because the people he was hiding out with ratted him out. They let him stay for as long as he needed.
A few nights later Jack brought in a beaten-up boy who had been cut up pretty bad by a broken bottle during a bar fight. The guy was small and had bright orange and purple hair so Geoff had no idea why he was even trying to fight someone in the first place. Geoff and him talked for hours that night and Geoff refused to let him leave.
Last, but not least, Geoff came in one night with a silent man with a dark skull mask covering his face. “Come on, take it off. She’s not going to judge.” He was hesitant but eventually he removed his mask to reveal a handsome face. Jack looked in awe at the fact that the face perfect for a magazine cover didn’t match the badass look the man had going for him. “Pretty sweet, huh?” Geoff exclaimed. “Now stop staring, I’m getting jealous.” Geoff never revealed where this man came from or how they had met but he would come over to the apartment every night for dinner and video games and eventually he just ended up staying like the rest. Jack never questioned it.
Geoff and Jack had started a little family that eventually turned into a heist crew after Michael came home with a bag full of diamonds. “Well we can’t do anything about it now and if he takes them back he’ll be in the hole for life.” Jack just sat there for a moment thinking.
“Fine. But this isn’t going to turn into a normal thing.”
It eventually turned into a normal thing.
Everyone began to get involved in Michael’s petty theft and it only escalated from there. Thus, the Fake AH Crew was born. The picture perfect, yet still dysfunctional family of six who no matter what, love and support each other.
And it’s all Jack had ever wanted in her life.
And it’s all she’ll ever need.
