Hey, beautiful writers! I'm attempting to get this lady ready for application and wanted to put my feelers out there for potential lines! This 28 yr old is Loideth (Teresa Palmer), aka Grey, aka Loi, aka the girl who talks too much. She is an Oregon native (hello, Newport) and has been in Portland for so long I can't even remember which year she moved here... Anyway. Loideth is a going-through-divorcee with 1 son, James, and basically she's just trying to get her life back on a positive track. Her personality is basically as follows: loud, stubborn, sometimes-bitchy yet always sarcastic, love obsessed nut-job. Currently I have her working at Teardrop Lounge as a manager & she's done artwork for published children's books.

I would love her childhood friends or even people she's gotten really close/had falling outs with over the last five years. Possibly neighbors (apartment or house), girls who have dated one of her 3 older brothers that she's still friendly with, people who hate her for getting them kicked out of the lounge... I'd super love extended family since she's very close with them. Or if anyone is interested in bringing in a new character, I'm definitely interested in getting her ex husband on board and a former love who has come back into her life (plenty of details for both if needed). Thanks!

apped this lady already, and i'd love to get some lines while i do a deep dive into her background! this is pia, a 32-year-old texas native (yep) who recently moved to portland in the spring for work. she works in public relations/advertising at a local agency. she also recently bought a small house with plans to renovate it, and she lives there with her two cats (sprout and twig) that moved with her from dallas. so far, pia isn't an incredibly active member of her new community; she tends to keep to herself outside of the office, and she's struggling juuuust a bit to make friends and lay down some permanent roots. that said, she's perfectly friendly (if a bit of an introvert, so it takes a while) and just needs a little shove to get out there.

i'd love to brainstorm a few lines if she's needed/wanted for anything! neighbors, coworkers at a creative agency, other people who work in neighboring offices perhaps, someone she talked to and low-key bonded with after realizing they were both from texas, diy-ers she's run into during her many outings now that she's taken on the task of renovating a house—or whatever you may need! i'm happy to work something out if she seems like she'd fit the bill.

this is olivia/liv, a 34 year old kindergarten teacher (school tbd), single mom of a (nearly) ten month old baby boy. she's pretty shy and awkward and a complete and utter nerd but she is extremely friendly and would have trouble being on the wrong side of anyone. liv is [info]emian's best friend since forever, for forever. (em's daughter is liv's god child and liv's son's middle name is emily associated! lots of ride or die love between these two ladies.) anyone who knows emily more than likely knows liv.

i'd love to get some lines for her as she's been out of the community world for a few months now and i've finally found a place i think she'd fit in well at! she has an older brother and a younger sister who may end up as npcs (happy to discuss those lines!) but i'm very open to cousins, any gender exes, friends, coworkers etc etc. the father of her son is such a complicated once-played line that i'm going to keep him a an npc.

hey folks! i'm going to be applying this armie hammer pb but i wanted to solidify some lines for him before i finish ironing out his background. he's 31, a native elsewhere, but moved to portland around 23-ish. he's either a police officer or a fire fighter (leaning towards police) and has a degree in criminal justice with a minor in psychology. he's very involved in the portland community and is an active volunteer, mostly with youth outreach, homelessness, and addiction. he's very much the kind of person dedicated to small changes from within one day at a time. he's generally quite affable, hardworking, and loyal. he has a big goofy mutt of a dog, a homeowner going on 2 years now, and enjoys house parties. and vaping, usually at said house parties. sorry he's not sorry.

so for, literally anything? let's talk it out and see what happens.

okay, she's been here for a little over a week now but this is emma helton, so i figured i would put her out there. she's originally from new york city, but moved to portland a little over a year ago when she accepted a position at the portland children's museum. she's a bit of an activist when it comes to advocating for education, so if people get her started on that, she can get long winded if she lets herself. she is in need of most things! neighbors, co-workers, people who she attends yoga with, i think there's a few transplants from nyc, so if we haven't connected, people she can talk about home with when she's feeling homesick. anything and everything!

Hey all! This is a delayed post since Sydney here was added on Wednesday, but its been a crazy week with me trying to keep tabs on my family & friends in Irma's path.

So, this is Sydney! She's a 25 year old Philly native who lived in NYC for about 3 years until she moved to Portland back in June. She has a pretty complicated and toxic past with drug addiction but miraculously she's still around. Two ODs and several rehab stints later, she decided to leave the east coast to start fresh on the west coast. She has been clean since June (although she does smoke weed almost daily) and attends NA meetings every week to help keep her on track. All that aside, she knows she is flawed, has a heart of gold and always puts other people before her. She's spontaneous, outspoken, brutally honest at times, but really just enjoys exploring, eating, writing, and living in the moment. She's a formal wild child party girl but has since toned that down because that usually gets her into trouble. She has a soft spot for animals, kids, and is social by default so she makes friends pretty easily. Currently she's working at Longfellow's Book & Music store as a sales associate and she doesn't know what she wants to be "when she grows up", but as long as she can pay her rent, she's content. She lives in a 1 bedroom apartment with her baby, Sir Winston.

Give me what you've got! She has a friend in [info]sullivanb & [info]sifletcher, but I'd love to find more female friends, fellow stoners, people who frequent the store she works at, or we could go the organic route and go with the flow of things. Looking forward to writing with you all!

oh hello lovelies! for those of you that may not have noticed, maureen has been quiet. that's mostly due to my small hiatus while i went on vacation... to florida... yeah. anyway, i'm back north now. if ANYONE here is from the sunshine state, PLEASE be safe these next coming days. it's no joke out there.

now, i figured this was a great opportunity to reintroduce maureen. she's 31 and a charge nurse in trauma/emergency at ppmc. what can i possibly say about her? seriously, i love her. she's my favorite character i play at the moment. when it comes to her job, she's typically all business and by the book. it means that co-workers typically either love her or hate her, since she can definitely be a pill from time to time. when you get her off the clock, she's friendly enough. almost a complete 180. almost. sarcasm is her friend and all that. she's originally from miami, though she moved to portland when she was young when her father got a job working as a medical trainer with the trailblazers organization. obviously, at the moment she's on edge. both fearing for her extended family and grumpy that she called off her vacation to stay and help with all the fire chaos.

as far as lines, i know there's a bunch of others that work at the hospital, so if you're still here, drop me a comment! her closest friends are [info]fiorio and [info]desantigo (don't ask about her relationship with the latter. she'll get ornery). i believe she went out with [info]garrison at some point as well. either way, let's plot all the things and fill me in on what i missed. :)

HEY GUYS! i figured i'd throw this up now that i'm getting him back around and try to make all the connections. but this is dean kelley, 27-year-old soft, sweet child in a lanky man body. he enjoyed a brief career as a famous skateboarder and personally knew tony hawk, but then gave up skateboarding altogether as a career to come home and be a family man at 20. his young marriage failed, so he turned productive and became a paramedic, which he's been consistently for about 5 years. personality-wise, he's basically the human version of a golden retriever and he's always trying to be bright and positive! he's a portland native, so any long term connections and all that jazz would be great! he's super friendly so all the random run-ins and anything you want to brainstorm i am absolutely here for.

the only solid things he's got at the moment are he's been dating [info]fiorio for about 4 months and [info]jaimison is his partner (if she'll still have me!), aside from that i am open for pretty much EVERYTHING, so let's make some magic

didn't get around to doing this before i intro'd but there is no time like the present. this is omri josefson. he's a visual artist that owns his own gallery (he shows his own stuff from time to time but also coordinates exhibitions of other artist's work -- he's pretty well known in the community). he's been in portland for around ten years and the gallery has been there around six years give or take. he's originally from eugene but also spent a few years up in seattle when he was an angry late teen / early twenty-something. these days he's less angry (but still sort of angry?) and mostly keeps to himself but does some community outreach for artists types and other various things like that. he's also in the process of conceptualizing a non-profit that will make strides towards dna testing in cold cases, which is a thing that is near and dear to him in the worst kind of way. so if there are any law enforcement people in the comm or lawyers or anyone that might be interested in helping out with that hit up me. otherwise just give me any line, i don't care what!

so i'm bringing this guy in, he's a student at ohsu studying cancer biology and is originally from seattle. so far all i have is a connection through [info]kins as friends who grew up together but other than that i'm in need of a roommate, best friend, siblings/family, artsy people, a tattoo artist, people who have had him as an uber driver, and i'm down to brainstorm anything else that could be epic and fun of course!
