twin daughters

That morning he was acting mighty strange. I took him to the hospital and I had him checked out while I made my rounds. About an hour later I saw him sneaking out of Intensive Care, fully dressed. He turned and he looked at me and I saw that strange face again. I called out to him, he didn’t say a word. He just turned around and walked out. 

Raising teenage girls can be a tough job. Raising black teenage girls as white parents can be even tougher. Aaron and Colleen Cook knew that when they adopted their twin daughters, Mya and Deanna.

As spring came around this year, the girls, who just turned 16, told their parents they wanted to get braided hair extensions. Their parents happily obliged, wanting Mya and Deanna to feel closer to their black heritage.

But when the girls got to school, they were asked to step out of class. Both were given several infractions for violating the dress code. Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, north of Boston, bans hair extensions in its dress code, deeming them “distracting.”

When administrators asked the girls to remove their braids, Mya and Deanna refused.

Feyre and Rhys Children

Imagine if Feyre and Rhys didn’t just have a daughter

We all like to think that Rhys and Feyre have a daughter. I being one. Cause OVERPROTECTIVE COURT OF DREAMS !!!! But imagine if Rhys and Feyre have a set of twin boys before their daughter.

  • The boys were born 100 years after the battle with Hybern and everything that happened under the mountain. Feyre wanted time and she got that. She got time with the court of dreams uninterrupted, she got the the freedom she had never had before, she got to heal and become a strong amazing High Lady. But also, she got time to have Rhys all to herself. They are immortal so there is no rush.
  • But then Feyre finds herself pregnant. And she can feel two hearts beating within her and Rhys can hear them too when he puts his ear to her stomach.
  • At first it’s terror and fear for both of them. High Fae have trouble with pregnancies, and two babies at one time … this is going to be very hard. But together, they are ready.
  • When Feyre gives birth to her sons they are no more than 5 minuets apart.
    • The older one is named Faron
    • The younger one is named Florin
  • The boys are both Illyrians, wings and all. They are obviously powerful because of who their parents are but no one quite knows how that power will manifest itself.
  • The twins are almost identical. In looks both are more like Rhys, with the same tan skin and black hair like him. But one has Feyre’s eyes and the other has Rhys’s.
  • However it is their personalities that are the big difference.
    • The older one, Faron, is more talkative around strangers, but when around family he is more like Feyre. That is to say quiet, protective and strong in a less of a presence way but quiet power way.
    • The younger one, Florin, is more quiet around strangers. He can easily blend into the shadows, content with his twin doing all of the talking. But around family and friends, boy oh boy is he like Rhys. He is smug, arrogant and completely devoted to those he loves.
  • They grow up happy in Velaris. Learning to fight with Azriel and Cassian. Learning to winnow with Mor. Learning to be scary without even trying with Amren. Learning to paint and read with their mom and learning to fly with their dad.
  • But just like every young Illyrian, they go to a camp to learn how to train for battle.
  • Feyre goes with them, and stays in the house that Rhys’s mother stayed in when he was training. Rhys always comes for dinner and stays the night. The rest of the Court of Dreams stops by very regularly.
  • The twins are not given special treatment in the camps. They are treated the same, and even choose to sleep with their comrades. Making friend with a lot of them, their closest friends being three Irriyan females (cause yes Rhys fixed this) and two other males.
  • As they get older they grow into their powers more. And like their father, their powers cannot be tamed with syphon stones.
    • Faron inherits Rhys ability to mist and Feyre’s ability to light up and call upon water (sometimes he gets really jealous of his brother, but when Feyre shows him what water can really do … he is obviously very pleased)
    • Florin gets Rhys ability to control the darkness and shape shift from Feyre (he turns out to become more like Az- he is the quieter of the two)
    • Both can winnow and can read minds like Rhys and Feyre
  • When they become old enough and start the whole lusting after people (I like to think that the older one is Bi and the younger one is gay) Feyre does the same thing Rhys’s mother did with her ring. She gets two rings that Rhys had given her over the centuries and put it into the cottage of the weaver and told them that “Their future mate or bride/husband had better be able to get the pieces of jewelry or else they would never be able to survive staying with them for all eternity”
  • Now, with the Illyrians that they became super close with, the twins formed their own mini Court of Dreams, but instead called it Court of Stars
  • Rhys and Feyre decide not to step down once their sons meet the age of maturity. In fact when the twins do reach the age of maturity, neither know who should be made High Lord. (There is talk of making them both but ultimately it goes to their daughter who they have later - and no, not right after she reaches the age of maturity)
    • Faron becomes her second and Florin becomes her shadow singer
  • And like their father they get tattoos too, their first ones matching insignia’s of the Night Court on both their knees like their father. (They so look up to Rhys even if they don’t admit it). Eventually each of them adds onto their ink, sometimes the same thing, sometimes not. Sometimes it is in the same place and sometimes not.  
  • After another 50 years since they matured, Feyre gets pregnant again. And this time it is the baby girl.
    • Let’s just say she has two very protective, very scary older brothers and family

lord i’m so sorry…….i’ve been thinking about this since i first read stone ocean

a bioshock infinite crossover for my favorite dysfunctional father and daughter

Outlining your novel scene by scene (Part 1)

Did you ever feel bored midway writing a scene? Or lukewarm? Do you feel like readers will jump full chunks of text?

Well, I used to feel that all the time.

I disliked outline with a passion. I thought it stole the magic away from creation. I thought it would trap my story in a box. Whenever I tried, I had no idea where to start, so I blamed outlining all over again. I would just write the first scene and allow my story to unfold itself. Although it is fun to let your story take the lead, it’s also chaotic.

I realized the importance of outlining on my third book. After months and months of hard work, my story turned out just… boring. Weak characters. A plot full of holes. No defined theme. Useless scenes. And a story that started with a goal, but changed so many times along the pages and accomplished almost nothing. Slow. Tedious. I was frustrated. I had to delete more than half to make it work. Even after rewriting, I wasn’t happy. That project was a major fail.

Originally posted by failworldblog

And failing was good, because, on my next project, I outlined. 

I listed all arcs and, within the arcs, all scenes. I was mad. I wanted control. I wanted power. And I only sat down to write when I knew exactly what was going to happen from start to finish. I never wrote something that fast and effortlessly in my life. It didn’t take away the magic of writing, it simply gave me a sense of direction.

Outline is a map. And when you have a map, you have a journey to make.

If, like me, you are a bit lost, here’s how you can create the map for your next novel, or how to outline your book scene by scene. I’ll share with you three techniques, but will divide them into three posts. This is the part one. Or the Map Technique.

I advice you to grab pen and paper, and move away from the computer. Find a comfortable spot, maybe a coffee shop, or by your window. And let’s work!

Originally posted by sashabloodsoup

Before outlining, write down your storyline in one phrase. I’ll be using an example to help you understand this technique. So, my storyline is:

Masked twins fight against a violent dictatorship.

Now, let’s start.

In every journey, we need a departure point and an arrival point. This is essential for a map. And, if it’s essential for a map, it’s essential for our outline. So, create the start (departure) and the end (arrival) of your story. With my example, it goes:

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
  • They destroy the government (arrival)

Amazing!! Our map is taking form. 

What else a journey must have? Milestones. Without milestones, we don’t know how far we are from the arrival. They are essential as well. But how can we put milestones in an outline? Easy. Between departure and arrival, you will list every important arc (or event, or key scene, or plot point) that must happen in order to take the plot from start to end. More or less like this:

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
    • Their family is destroyed
    • They are taken in by their uncle
    • Uncle and twins plan their revenge
    • Twins find their mask
    • Twins perform small acts of justice
    • They gain the respect of the citizens
    • Government sees them as threat
    • Government tries to erase them
    • Twins perform huge acts of justice
    • They are almost killed 
    • Uncle is killed
    • They perform one last act of justice by killing the dictator
    • Citizens claim for democracy
    • Democracy is installed
    • The twins destroy their masks 
  • They destroy the government (arrival)

All milestones are placed, nothing too fancy, just a description of what we’ll be seeing along the journey. Good. 

From milestone to milestone, we have roads, or sequences of roads. Between arcs, write down sequences of scenes that must happen to move the plot forward. For example: 

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
    • Their family is destroyed
      • Twins live with their father (who is an important journalist)
      • Father is abducted by the government
      • Social worker takes them to lonely uncle
    • They are taken in by their uncle
      • Twins and uncle can’t adjust to new life
      • They are all filled with grief
      • Uncle comes up with revenge plan
    • Uncle and twins plan their revenge
      • Twins trains while uncle perfects his plan
      • Twins and uncle adjust to new life
      • They become a family
    • Twins find their mask
      • Getting ready for their first step
    • Twins perform small acts of justice
      • They destroy factory that uses slave force
      • They kill politician who closed hospitals
      • They kill a famous torturer for the government party
      • They find their father’s file
      • Discover that father was tortured and killed
    • They gain the respect of the citizens

We are almost there… 

Because, in every mile of the road, we have landscapes. Scenes are landscapes. And we need hundreds of different landscapes along the journey, beautiful ones, strange ones, unexpected ones… we need scenes. To every sequence, create as many scenes as you need:

  • Twins have their lives destroyed by the government (departure)
    • Their family is destroyed
      • Twins live with their father (who is an important journalist)
        • Father receives a journalism award
        • Twins enjoy the party
        • It’s time to go
        • Father drives them home
      • Father is abducted by the government
        • In isolated street, the car is stoped
        • Two man attacks them and abducts their father
        • One of the twins receive a scar on their face
        • Twins are left alone in deserted street
      • Social worker takes them to lonely uncle
        • Social worker takes them from the hospital
        • Drives them to poor area
        • Leaves them with unknown uncle
    • They are taken in by their uncle
      • Twins and uncle can’t adjust to new life
        • Twins can’t eat
        • Twins won’t leave the house
        • Uncle tries to get information on what happened to his brother, but fails
        • It’s believed that their father died
      • They are all filled with grief
        • Uncle and twins have a sincere talk about father, they tell past stories, they laugh, they cry
        • For the first time, they have dinner together
      • Uncle comes up with revenge plan

You can almost see the story playing inside your head like a movie. That’s the magic of a scene by scene outline. :D

This last step is optional. But it’s a great exercise to trim the rough edges. Under each scene, catalog which character(s) you’ll need, what place(s) will be used, what does the scene accomplishes and ways it can unfold. Example:

  • Father receives a journalism award
    • Characters: Father, twins, father’s coworkers, VIPs
    • Place: Banquet hall 
    • Accomplishment: To show that father is a famous journalist that gives no chills for what the dictator says
    • Possibilities: 
      • Father is announced as the award winner
      • Speech against the dictator
      • Ends speech by showing his love for his son/daughter(s)
      • Twins are proud (and kind of embarrassed as well)
      • Applause, applause
      • Nice food
      • Beautiful dresses
      • It’s the twins birthday
      • Or it’s Christmas
      • Open hall with garden
      • Fireworks
      • Rich people

Takes time, but, now, you have the most detailed map a traveller can possess. It’s easy to depart, just take a seat and enjoy the ride.

Please see Laffy’s drawing. It is coincidence that Saboala son and ZoSan daughter are both wearing blue in this drawing. It means nothing. …………..OR DOES IT.

Okay, some One Piece babies/children “headcanons” incoming.

  • It’s still unclear whether or not Law and Luffy are going to have a second child. Law argues it’s impossible to determine that the second child is going to be a boy but Luffy argues that he’s decided. DECIDED!
  • Laffy doesn’t properly understand the concept of babies. Although she does know how babies are made (male sperm, female egg cell and all that jazz), she doesn’t quite process the fact that she can’t have a tiger-fox hybrid baby brother because according to Papa, “Torao can make centaurs if he wanted to”. 
  • As for the grandpa thing, Corazon is Cora-ya and Shanks is Aka-ya because Akagami Shanks and that name is just too fricken long. Garp is Grandpa. Sengoku is Grandpa. Dragon is Dranpa because Sabo’s son mashed up Grandpa and Dragon. The name stuck and Laffy started calling him that, too.
  • Laffy can draw. Her parents says so. End of story.
  • I was discussing with @iamaxiezze​ about ZoSan daughter and we were talking about naming her Matcha, Mochi or Miwa. Matcha is green tea. Mochi is a sweet japanese rice cake and is also a fricken character in Monster Rancher, which now makes me hesitant. Miwa, on the other hand, is written with the kanji of “Three” and “Harmony”. A combination of “THREE” and “HARMONY” results to a cute baby. I am trying to make a very clever explanation/analogy/joke here. Please say you understand. Anyway, I haven’t decided yet. Please let me know you’re thoughts. GIVE ME A FRENCH NAME PLEASE
  • Saboala daughter would be Yuka because YUKA-lyptus. You can basically hear Sabo’s pride in the distance coz he thought of it and Koala’s like “He wrote it on the birth certificate when I was asleep”. Hi @nurmuzdalifah
  • Saboala’s son, I’m not entirely sure but he’d be Joie, which is basically an alternate spelling for joey coz baby koala. IDK, I’ve run out of options.
  • Franky wanted to name their daughter Pliers. Robin wants to name her Lilith. We’ll keep you posted. 
  • Frobin daughter says “WICKED!” instead of “SUPER!”
  • I don’t know what Shanks and Mihawk’s kids names are.
  • ZoSan daughter has absolute loyalty to “her captain”, Laffy, which she mostly picked up from both her parents. She sometimes tends to overdo it in the sense that she vows to slice everyone and everything that doesn’t agree with her captain. The peanut butter jar that won’t open, for instance, did not escape the wrath of her blades. 
  • Zoro tends to be overy dramatic when discussing issues of pride and loyalty and manliness to his daughter that Sanji feels like he needs to balance it by trying to tell her what a lady is like. So that resulted to a well-mannered fighter (unless Sabo’s son is involved. I’ll get to that later.). “I am aware that young ladies are expected to be prim and proper but you, sir, have been acting like a despicable donkey’s behind. I’m afraid I will have to slice you. Please do not fret. The sharpness of my knives should alleviate most of the pain.” 
  • Shanks and Mihawk’s twins were genetically made. Once upon a time, someone tried to beat the Germa by mass-producing soldiers with the genes of the best swordsmen in the world. Both swordsmen find out about this, destroy the lab and all of the research but the prototype babies were there already so Shanks goes “LOL so I guess we have kids now LOLOLOLOL LET’S DRINK” (GUYS I DO NOT EVEN SHIP THESE TWO)
  • Mihawk’s daughter wields the largest sword of them all.
  • Mihawk’s son wields dual blades.
  • ZoSan daughter has some sort of rivalry with Shanks and Mihawk’s twins. She fights them with knives.
  • Shanks Mihawk twins have a god damn high tolerance to wine and alcohol. Why they are allowed to drink, no one knows.
  • Laffy thinks Mihawk’s daughter’s sword and her insane ability to wield it is one of the most amazing things on the planet and god damn if ZoSan daughter didn’t ask uncle franky to make her the largest cleaver on the face of the earth. “I need to live up to my captain’s expectations!!!!” 
  • Laffy has a crush on Dracule Mihawk. Mihawk’s son has a crush on Laffy. Law is reminded of what helplessness feels like.
  • Saboala son is the sane one and tries to be the futile voice of reason among the chaos that is Laffy, her whims, and her vice-captain. He tries to save what he can but he finds prevention is next to impossible while clean-up is inevitable. He doesn’t know why he still tries.
  • Saboala son bickers with ZoSan daughter much like how Zoro and Sanji behave and that causes Zoro and Sanji some sort of discomfort that they could not explain. Luffy thinks it’s funny. 
  • ZoSan daughter calls Saboala son “Pretty Boy” or “School Boy” as an insult. He calls her “Curly Skirts” much to her parents’ horror. They still do not understand where this fear is coming from. At one point, Zoro wonders about cutting the boy just to see if that does something. Koala lost her shit. That had been a fun day.
  • Saboala son is the only person that does not receive well-mannered treatment from ZoSan daughter.
  • Laffy’s mastery of haki is superb. Silvers Rayleigh + Monkey D. Garp and I just….. I just CAN’T. She also has insane stamina. While she mostly fights using kicks and punches, Laffy can also fight using a myriad of haki-imbued things ranging from an eggplant to a chair.
  • Only Saboala son can spar with Laffy when it comes to haki. He fights with a pipe, too, and can do those dragon claw things because why the hell not? He knows some moves from Fishman Karate but, dude. DRAGONS.
  • Saboala’s daughter can speak a wide variety of languages because she’s been exposed to them since birth. Hack spoils her and helps Koala teach her Fishman Karate.
  • Laffy’s met Doffy. Cora-san brought her down there because he’s still family after all. She was escorted by Garp, Tsuru, Sengoku, Coby, Helmeppo, Smoker, Tashigi, and Rocinante himself. When Laffy came back, the first thing she said to Law was “The weak don’t get to choose how they die!” Law was more livid than Akainu and Ace combined.
  • Speaking of Ace, he’s alive. He sneaks Laffy off the Sunny sometimes because she likes to see Pineapple Bird aka Marco. Ace is kind of jealous that his niece thinks Marco’s flames are prettier than his.

giles’ biggest nightmare- his twin daughters dating men who’d do to them all the things he used to do (or still do ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)) to the princess turned queen. (not that it’s bad or anything, but for a protective father it’s a bit if a problem)

the scariest part for him would be how he won’t even be able to tell if the man is a perfectly innocent and nice gentleman, just as no one was ever able to tell what he really was like behind closed doors because of his perfectly composed and proper demeanor in front of others~

Daughters of Mischief 1/?

TITLE:  Daughters of Mischief

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT:  Chapter 1/?

AUTHOR:  whisperriddle 

ORIGINAL IMAGINE:  Imagine being the adoptive mother to two powerful  (and mischievous) teenaged witches. One day you answer the door to meet a man (Loki) claiming to be the girls’ father, come to take them home with him.

RATING:  Teen

NOTES/WARNINGS:  None

Lilly put her head in her hands and leaned against the table as she read the latest reports the school had sent home. Jenny and Mary had gotten their third referral from the principal this week and Lilly didn’t think she could take it any longer.

She knew her daughters were prone to mischief, especially when they had turned eight and their magic emerged. It had been a long seven years of learning and understanding their magic, but Lilly had managed to teach the girls to use it for good, and not to hurt anyone or each other with it.

But lately, the fifteen year old girls have been using their magic for mischief, all kinds, including using it to prank the children in their grade and it often ended with Lilly in the principals office.

BTS Reaction - When their daughter gets jealous of affection/requested

Anonymous said: Bangtan reaction when their little daughter gets jealous of him when they kiss or hug their wife(kid is their both) ^^ Hope you get what I mean 😂

HANDS DOWN CUTEST REACTION I’VE DONE im cryin

Jungkook:

“I’ll see you later, babe.” Jungkook said as he pulled you close to him and kissed your lips. There was a small whimper below the two of you and Jungkook looked down, spotting his daughter staring up at the two of you with a pout on her face. He leaned down to pick her up, and planted a big kiss on her chubby cheek.

“Aw, there’s no reason to get mad. Daddy loves you just as much.”

Namjoon:

You were making breakfast for yours and Namjoon’s three year old daughter, Seol, when he walked in and playfully grabbed you by your wrist. He pulled you into a quick kiss, and interlocked your fingers before planting a kiss on your knuckles. Your daughter squealed and said, “Daddy, no!”

“Oh, why not? She was mine first,” he laughed before hoisting your daughter up and kissing her forehead.

J-Hope:

He had just gotten back from tour and you were standing at the gate of his plane, gripping yours and Hoseok’s four year old daughter’s hand. His mom stood slightly behind you, also anticipating Hoseok’s return. When you saw him, you said to your daughter, “Stay with grandma, Na Ri.” Before rushing to your husband and hopping into his arms. Fingers interlocked, your daughter ran from his mom and stopped short before saying, “I want you to hug me like you hugged mommy.”

“Of course, baby. I missed you so much.” Hoseok said with his arms wide open, then wrapping up his daughter in hugs and kisses.

Jimin:

It was early morning, and you and Jimin were awake and laying in bed. You were still sleepy and kept turning over and burrowing into your husband. He put his arm around you and held you close, before kissing your head. All was quiet before the two of you heard a little voice say, “Can you snuggle me like you snuggle with Mommy?” 

“C’mere, baby girl. We’ll snuggle with ya.”

Jin:

The two of you had just finished doing the dishes when he got a call from the studio asking him to come in and finish up some choreography. He agreed, and kissed you before gently pulling you into a hug while mumbling, “Sorry, I’ll be back soon.” Your twin daughters started to giggle and kept looking at their parents. Jin smiled and hugged his little girls tightly.

“What are you two laughing at? I can’t give my love a kiss and a hug?”

Taehyung:

You were helping your husband pack for the beginning of a short leg of the Wings Tour. He’d be back in two weeks - but it stunk going that long without him. You held your one year old daughter in your arms as you handed Tae a folded shirt. “I know you’re upset, I won’t be gone very long, I promise.” He said, pulling you towards him and kissing your lips. Your daughter began to whimper, signaling that she was about to cry. Taehyung laughed and brushed the hair from his daughter’s forehead.

“What, sweetheart? Are you going to miss me too, baby? I’ll be back soon, I promise.” He said, making funny faces at his daughter to try to cheer her up.

Suga:

The three of you were in the car on the way to a doctor’s appointment. Today was the day you were getting an ultrasound to check on your second child’s health. You and Suga decided it would be okay to have your four year old come along to see her baby brother. During the car ride, Suga held tightly onto your hand and your baby girl blurted, “Daddy, I want you to hold my hand like that.”

Suga laughed and reached into the back seat to take hold of his little girl’s hand for the duration of the car ride. “See? All better.”

Dream Daddy dadcanons/predictions

…I know I’m kinda trash for coming up with headcanons and predictions before the game is even out, but…It’s too late for me my dude. After seeing the character designs, I just GOTTA.

Brian (bear dad): The most dad of all the dads. A goof who makes dad jokes. Big and buff, but with a bit of tum. Likes camping, football, barbecuing, and the great outdoors! Been single for a while and is looking for love, and he is a VERY loveable guy. He’ll smother you with affection, hugging you into his big bara tiddies. Has 3 or 4 kids of varying ages, male and female (Maybe 5,8, and 11?) who all live with him. Might’ve had a wife for a while before realizing that he’s gay. He’s fully embraced the “bear” title and the gay community ever since though. Lives in a fairly good-sized two-story house with a pool. Pool parties are frequent and always a good time. He’s in his mid-late 30s.

Hugo (Scholar/teacher dad): He’s REALLY smart, and a college professor (Maybe teaches law or medicine). He has a doctorate, and is fairly well-off. Divorced his ex-wife quite some time ago. He’s a really sweet guy. He has a daughter who is probably like 10-13 years old, and she’s just as smart and excellent as her dad is.  His job allows him and his daughter to live in a nice two-story home. He is quietly starting to explore his sexuality, and can be considered as bicurious. Not many people know about this though- he’s sort of afraid of what his students/colleagues might think, and that his daughter might get teased if someone found out about him liking men. He’s in his late 30s/early 40s (looking damn good for his age).

Mat (Cool dad): Idk why, but he gives me “main dad” vibes. Bi, runs a cafe. Probably the most popular. He met the kid’s mom in high school and the kids were born in their college days. They raised them together for a couple years. He and the kids’ mom are no longer together, but they still get along okay and split custody. He lives in a ranch house, just big enough for him and his kids. He’s got a boy and a girl who are both around 5 or 6. His kids are his world and he enjoys playing superheroes and catch with his son, and having tea parties with his daughter and braiding her hair. He wants his kids to have the best he can give them, because he didn’t have much himself growing up. He’s very into music (rock, hip-hop, pop, all of it) and plays guitar. He seems to attract a lot of potential suitors, both male and female, so you have some competition. He’s in his late 20s/early 30s.

Damien (Vampire/goth dad): Yes, he’s actually a vampire. Because of that, he’s the oldest dad in the game. But he looks pretty young. He lives in a big, black, old, victorian-style mansion at the end of the road, that stands out from the rest of the houses in the neighborhood. He tries to keep his vampirism a secret, but rumors are already spreading through the neighborhood because of his strange nature. He wears black almost exclusively, and seems really into gothic and morbid/creepy things. Think the Addams family. Not quite sure if that wine glass is filled with wine or blood. He has a brooding, goth teenage-looking daughter, two twin boys who look about 6 who are always together and eerily quiet, and a four-year old-looking girl who inexplicably likes the color pink and is very girly. He doesn’t understand her, but loves her anyway.  He’s still trying to get over the death of his (very) late wife. His age is indefinite.

Craig (Young sporty dad): He is the youngest dad in the game.  He’s a college student. He had a drunken one-night stand which ended in him getting the girl pregnant- and him becoming a father. The mother is unfortunately out of the picture (perhaps she’s an addict and deemed unfit to raise a child). Craig took it upon him to raise their baby himself- all while trying to complete college.  He’s struggling and barely knows the first thing about raising a baby, but he’s learning. It’s very hard to balance his schoolwork and his parenting though. His parents are helping out financially, but he’s still trying to not completely rely on them, which is what makes it more difficult.  He’s an athlete who has sports commitments, but he’s afraid he might have to give those up. He lives in the smallest house in the neighborhood that his parents are paying for, in order for him to have a proper place to raise a baby that’s close to campus. The other dads give him advice at times- especially Hugo, who is one of his professors.  He’s struggling- but he’s REALLY trying. He may or may not also be closeted or questioning his sexuality. He’s only 20 or 21 years old.

Joseph (Rich dad): Yeah, he’s rich. Living off a family fortune, his ex-wife left him after finding out that he had been sleeping with men behind her back. He has no regrets about it though, and has now finally came out. He loves to party and live the good life, spending a lot of time yachting and hosting “backyard bash” parties, which he often invites the other dads to. He has a bit of a rivalry/enemy relationship with Vampire dad though- who wouldn’t want to go to his parties anyway. He lives in a huge gated mansion, which is the biggest home in the neighborhood. He’s just a bit high-strung and high-maintenance, but not a bad guy.  Overall lives life like it’s a party and enjoys it to it’s fullest. He’s just a bit effeminate and tbh acts the most “stereotypically gay” of all of them. He has a 6 year-old daughter that he spoils the hell out of- and he’ll spoil the hell out of you too, if you play your cards right. He is in his early-mid 30s.

Robert (bad boy dad):  He spends his time off work riding his motorcycle and hanging out at bars, fucking, partying, and sometimes getting into fights. He has a “I don’t give a fuck, don’t fuck with me” attitude.  He was very wild and rebellious in his youth, having many flings with both men and women. In high school, he managed to seduce the prim and proper student body president, getting her pregnant. However, as basically a super woman, she not only finished both high school AND college graduating as the valedictorian and getting a very successful business career- but she also nearly-singlehandedly raised their daughter as well. Given how opposite they are, his relationship with the mother did not end well had always been…just a little hostile. But while she’s lived a life of success, HE on the other hand, still struggles to this day to slow down, get ahold of himself, and realize that he’s not young anymore and the way he carelessly breezes through life doing whatever he wants and not giving a fuck just doesn’t cut it anymore. This especially hits him now that he’s older- and his wife has dropped off his now teenage daughter, expecting him to take care of her while she’s off on a business trip for an indefinite amount of time. His relationship with his daughter is very strained- she lived with her mother her whole life, …while he wasn’t really there for her that often. In his  storyline,  you teach him how to settle down, appreciate life slowly, be more responsible, become a better dad- …and how to be a lover. He’s in his early-mid 30s.

I wanna look back on this once it’s out and see how wrong or right I am.
