This blog has a number of OCs (between 6 and 10, depending on how you’d define a nonessential cameo character) in addition to the 8 canon characters, so I thought I’d write them down for you. I do try to keep the gang small and use only the understudies and main cast, but I’m a sucker for fleshing out a world. Here goes.
Ben Applebaum (yes, like the one from Pitch Perfect it’s my au I do what I want).
Birthday: November 27th (bn 1996)
Faceclaim [FC]: Colton Ryan - standby Connor/Evan/Jared
Random but Important Facts [RIFs]: homoromantic asexual; dating Jared; was homeschooled from sixth grade through the rest of high school; big on ghosts; only wears clothing because society says he has to
FC: Asa Somers - standby Larry
RIFs: super gay; yes he’s Jared’s biological father; works for Starbucks and is therefore always overcaffeinated; tries to be the cool parent and fails but hey at least he’s funny
FC: Garrett Long - standby Heidi/Cynthia
Age: 49 (this is a somewhat blind guess as I’m not sure of Garrett’s actual age)
Birthday: July 1
RIFs: Alana’s paternal aunt by marriage; Libby’s mom; has been widowed 15 years and is still a cinnamon roll; literally just a ray of sunshine that everyone can’t help but love
Kaeto (formerly known as Lee) Paige
FC: Michael Lee Brown - standby Evan/Connor/Jared
Birthday: April 16th (bn 1998)
Diagnoses: Depression, Anxiety, mild ADD, Anorexia/Bulimia (in recovery)
RIFs: the youngest of the squad and basically Jared’s adopted son; identifies as straight male (intersex transboy); has a service dog named Michi (pronounced Mickey) and she’s a pitbull and everyone loves her; has a highkey crush on Libby that he thinks is lowkey but it’s definitely not is now dating Libby and they are very much disgustingly in love
FC: Nick Sacks - standby Jared/Connor/Evan
Diagnoses: PTSD as a result of child abuse, more to be added later
RIFs: riased in a very conservative family; beign gay really didn’t help his situation; moved away from home as soon as he was sure he could support himself
Vivienne “Libby” Maddison-Beck
FC: Olivia Puckett - standby Zoe/Alana
Birthday: August 20th (bn 1994)
Diagnoses: Seasonal depression (starting late July/early August, ending around October)
RIFs: Alana’s cousin and June’s daughter - she and A are practically sisters they spent so much time together as kids; blames herself for the death of her father, who died in a car accident going to get her food; works with little kids; Libby is short for Vivienne of all freaking things; loves Lee more than life itself tbh but pretends it’s just Friendship/bc he’s got a dog and literally no one buys it but Lee; is dating Lee and they’re disgusting but everyone’s still happy about it
Cameo/Minor Characters (i did not mean for almost all their names to start with “a” it was a coicidence)
FC: Lisa Brescia - standby(?) Cynthia/Heidi
RIFs: Lee’s Mom; born in Lübeck, Germany
FC: Neil Haskell (Hamilton Broadway castmember)
RIFs: originated in Quiet Observations [QO], the prequel/accompaniment to the AU; works a lot with mentally ill teens; I didn’t mean to bring him into the blog Y'all just love him cuz he’s pretty I swear; he’s a bi nurse who is 300% done with the world’s shit
Leslie Odom Jr/Nicolette Robinson
living embodiments of “Black Don’t Crack”
FC: Adrian Bumpass (Colton Ryan’s adorable gf)
RIFs: Ben’s older sister; more wholesome/sweet/All-American than apple pie but will kill a man with her pinky for her brother; another primarily QO character
FC: Thayne Jasperson (Hamilton Broadway castmember and former Newsie)
RIFs: Connor’s first boyfriend/crush that he was aware of; is both indirectly and directly responsible for Connor’s addiction struggle (though no one blames him); moved away while Connor was still in high school and has returned but only recently made contact; engaged to Avery
Halloween was coming up and Melody was so excited! She wanted to go all out. So, she bought all the decorations she could find and completely transformed the apartment! She also arranged a date to have a little costume part with Stacy and Caleb. She was very excited!
Avery: The place looks amazing! I can’t believe it’s still the same apartment! This party is going to be great!
