For non-Shepard OC week, here’s a special ask meme inspired by the character creation options in Mass Effect 1. Reblog and tag your OCs so that people can ask you things. Or, just go ahead and post answers for as many of these questions as you like!
What is the character’s full name, and how did you come up with it?
What inspired you to create this character?
What species are they, and what do they look like? (Use anything you like - descriptions, art, outfits, face claims, etc)
Tell us a little about the world-state that they inhabit. (For example, are they active before, during, and/or after the events of the Mass Effect trilogy? Are they part of an AU?)
Share a quote, image, or song that reminds you of the character.
Does this character have a connection to any major/canon characters?
Where, if anywhere, does the character consider their home to be?
What do they remember most strongly about their childhood?
Tell us about an important relationship (of any kind) in the character’s life, and how it impacted them.
How did they end up in their current line of work?
What is the character’s greatest strength? What do they *think* is their greatest strength?
What (if anything) do they wish was different about themselves?
What’s a challenge that the character has overcome (or at least survived) during their lifetime? How did they do it?
What’s something (a person, a belief, a goal…) that your character would be willing to make major sacrifices for?
What’s a misconception that people might have about your character?
Since when are the popular guy of school and the creepy loner BFF? What about the mutual scar Nance’ and Jon are sharing on their hands? And does she have two boyfrends now?
The fact that they were people others would sit around making up whispers or gossip about was enough in itself to be impressive. Rumors. Unfonded. Most of the time. They were known as the Three Amigos or the Three Stooges or the Three little Pigs. But their favorite was the Three Moirai –Nancy unilaterally decided she was Clotho ; Steve was Lachesis ; and Jon, Atropos. In some way, despite being labeled now persona non grata, they were secretely envied. A clan of three, a family, inseparable. And in high school, most kids never had that. Whatever had happened in autumn 1983, it changed everything. It changed them.
You stared at the small
box in your hands. It contained a necklace. Not a fancy, expensive one or
anything (after all, Jonathan could only do so much), but a nice one nonetheless.
It was the fourth gift you had received from him in the last month and while
you loved your boyfriend with all of your heart, the box felt heavy in your
hands. And it wasn’t because the
necklace itself was heavy.
Jonathan Byers was very
inexperienced in the realm of dating. Apparently not every girl in the small
town of Hawkins was hot for a lanky, shy introvert whose hands were practically
glued to his camera. So when you waltzed into his life and eventually into his
heart, he wasn’t sure how to take it.
most people like holding hands?Is
something supposed to happen on movie dates? What about kissing on the first
date, was that alright?
As much as these
questions plagued Jonathan, he lived in fear of how much embarrassment he
thought he’d be plagued by if he asked you any of these. You weren’t
necessarily someone who got around, but between the two of you, two official
boyfriends and one crush that went nowhere was comparatively far more
experienced, even if you never went beyond a simple make-out session with
either of them. You therefore found yourself less upset and more amused when
you later learned that he turned to Nancy for advice. The end result?
“Well, people like to get
gifts,” Nancy shrugged. “I’d say maybe start the first date off with a bouquet
or something – nothing major, y’know?” She then quickly added, “It helps if it’s
something from the heart, though.”
Guys can you imagine more of Mike teaching Eleven about the real world… like, she can’t even tell time, so she’s probably clueless about everything. Imagine Mike, science fair champ, explaining planets and weather and physics to El. Imagine him introducing her to Star Wars, giving a detailed commentary through out the whole thing, which might be annoying to most, but Eleven loves it. Imagine him teaching her to add and subtract and tell time and make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Imagine Mike teaching Eleven the basics of Dungeons and Dragons, along with all of his own tricks and tips so she can play her best with the other kids. Mike reading her the x-men comics, encouraging her to be “mutant and proud,” reminding her that the powers she has make her great, make her like a superhero. Him teaching her to ride a bike, to throw a football, to build a fort. Mike taking El to the AV room to play with the radio, for fun, not on some deadly quest. Eleven is almost a teenager and she has had nothing - no fun, no experiences, no family. And Mike, he would teach her everything he can think of, every piece of history, real and fictional that he knows; he would answer any question she had with enthusiasm and to the best of his ability. Mike Wheeler wants the best for his friends, especially Eleven, who he knows has had nothing.
