The following roles have been reopened:
Flower | Bambi | 21 | Flower Vendor | Alex Newell | Open
"He can call me a flower if he wants to; I don't mind."
(+) Positive: sweet, cheerful, carefree.
(-) Negative: shy, introverted, impressionable.
Flower is possibly one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. She is always willing to listen to someone, and offer her support, and is very hard to keep down-trodden. She has a hard time voicing her opinion sometimes, not wanting to offend anyone, but is capable of sticking up for her friends when the need arises.
She’s a pretty tough cookie, despite being sweet and gentle, perhaps a factor of being a women when much of society tries to tell her she isn’t, and she’s got a thick skin. Words can hurt her, words can hurt everyone, but Flower doesn’t let the names or labels other people call her define her.
Flower grew up spending her days outdoors. Riding bikes, taking trips to a local lake for swimming days, and playing hide and seek in the forest with her siblings were things she did on a regular basis. Spring and summer were her favourite seasons, and it was never complete unless they spent their days sitting outside, sipping lemonade and trying to catch frogs. There was adventure to be had, and it couldn’t be found indoors sitting at a computer or a television.
And although she liked new experiences, Flower was never really the one to be leading her siblings into the charge. She followed instead, preferring the quieter role where she didn’t have to speak up as often. She was introverted, and preferred staying in the background, where she wouldn’t be noticed. That was all okay with her.
The one thing she liked best about being in the background though, was being able to do her own thing. If she was leading, she had people looking up to her to either get things right, or to lead them on some exciting adventure. But if she was following and dropped back to pick some flowers, well, no one much minded. Following was a pretty freeing option for her.
Well, up until she’d finished school. Because once she graduated, there was no one else to follow. Her siblings and friends were dispersing, leaving her at a crossroads where she’d have to decide where to go from there. And being indecisive, Flower waffled for as long as she could. The world was scary. She preferred to dip her toes in and get used to the water instead of just jump in.
But eventually she jumped, she leaped, because when it boiled down to it she could muster up her courage, and she set off to make her mark on the world the way she knew best— spreading happiness and good feelings.
Life Under the Big Top:
Flower found her calling at the Disney Carnival, operating a little booth that sells flowers. Flowers of all kinds. They remind her of the happy days spent at home, and really, she just likes them. She’s more than happy to sell them to couples, young and old, who have come to the Carnival on a date. It brings smiles to their faces, and makes her happy.
Yes, Kovu will be a playable character. I believe we took his bio down for a few alterations, but if you’d like to see him back up then we’ll work on getting that done very soon.
While Lana is lovely, Jessica’s FC is one that we’ve had picked out for a long time, since before the RP opened. We feel that Angelina fits her perfectly in both looks and personality, which is why we have chosen and will most likely be keeping her.
In our personal opinion, Lana doesn’t fit our perception of Jessica, and part of that is down to her age. We see Jessica as a little older than Lana is, thus why we settled on Angelina Jolie as our choice. I can’t speak for other RPs but this is why we unfortunately won’t be changing our chosen FC for her.
We’re more than happy to place Lana somewhere else in the RP though, so we can add her to the wanted FC list and find a place for her.
I like Lana and would like to put her somewhere in the RP, but I think we’re going to stick with Angie for Jessica.
I mean, seriously, have you seen that gorgeous woman? Queen Perfection that just gets better with age. And even though we kept the woman in Roger’s bio very vague, if Roger and Jessica want to play it out as if was Jessica that was the woman in Roger’s bio, I don’t think age is much of a factor here. Simply because not everyone finds someone they want to be with or have been with around their own age.
As long as no laws are broken, which they wouldn’t be in this case, I don’t see why we can’t have a woman older than Roger to be Jessica. Along with the fact that, and I do apologize if you didn’t mean it this way, saying because Lana is younger she’d be a ‘nice fit to Roger’ implies that we are writing Jessica around Roger, that Roger is our main focus in this and Jessica is there to be his arm candy, which is the exact opposite of her role in the movie and what Jessica stands for. And, to be frank, no woman is just a dumb airhead or just there to be the love interest or just there to be pretty, no matter how they are written or portrayed in media.
But, you love who you love, man. And I think it’s a good thing to see different diversities in any way when it comes to relationships of any kind.
But we do thank you for your suggestion and we will find a place for Lana! And if you would like to see Lana as someone else, please message us or check our upcoming list!
We do have a Princess Tiana out already here, with the FC of Freema Agyeman, but we definitely have a Lupita planned as someone we think you’ll like her as. We’re going to be keeping her match a surprise for now, but she will hopefully be out sometime soon!
We do already have Q’orianka Kilcher as our Pocahontas right here, but we will definitely take Emma into consideration as Princess Mia! We would also love to have a Jamie and Lupita, so we’ll keep them in mind as well! Thank you very much for your suggestions, if you have any others or have any questions, just let us know!
