Current I'm going to do my best to respond to everyone. Might have a bit of trouble keeping up with posting this week due to long hours at work. But then next week and the week after I'll have more time.

Responses slowly coming. Sorry again for the delay. The next few months will likely be slow response times from me as well. Just started the process of buying a house and moving.

Wish I could say I was going to respond, but it'll have to wait until tomorrow. Very early, long day tomorrow. Everyone owed responses will receive them - fear not!

Steve had opened his mouth to say something, try to argue the point that they surely had been moving a lot in and could use a break, when he heard Ethan’s voice. He’d heard someone coming, but it hadn’t really added up that it was probably his friend until after the man spoke. It distracted him from the conversation he’d been starting up with his roommate’s sister. A soft, a bit modest smile slid onto his face with a soft laugh. “Yeah. But you know how it is. Higher ups want things running and that’s just how it’s gotta be.” He shrugged slightly as he spoke.

It wasn’t a big problem for them that Steve sometimes worked long or weird hours. It was what it took to really get his foot in the door at the firm he worked for. And it was that work ethic that had gotten him promoted to senior technician quickly. Well, that and being good at his job. Since he was single, it wasn’t like working long or weird hours was a problem for anyone except Ethan if he made too much noise leaving for a super early morning emergency or pulled long hours. It paid bills, helped him save up for trips, and was definitely helping pay off his student loans. If he kept up all the over time he was doing, he could probably pay off his debt in another year or two.

“Is there anything you guys need help with? Or would like help with?” He slung the strap of his work bag over his shoulder as he followed the siblings out to the truck. While he took Olivia at her word that it was only another trip - maybe two - between the siblings to get her things upstairs, he still felt bad not being back in time to help move more in. Surely there had been a lot, or at least it had felt like a lot. Steve knew he wasn't exactly the strongest - or strongest looking - but he did stay in at least a little bit of shape. He didn't need to be muscular, but he at least stayed trim, which was better than most others that mostly sat in front of computers all day.

He paused for a moment, seeming to think over the offer for a moment before he looked back at the siblings. "Actually, if you guys think you have that - why don't I go order something for everyone to eat? How about pizza? It's fast, it's easy. It's pretty much moved into a new place classic." He wasn't sure about Olivia's dietary preferences, but he kind of just figured pizza also made for a good comfort food too. There was science behind why, but he didn't put much thought into it. He did know why it was classic 'moved into a new place' food - because usually people didn't unpack their plates and pizzas were an eat by hand food.
They'd been friends since that fateful day first year of college when they'd both shown up at the same dorm and found out they were to be roommates at least until the end of that first year. Steve - as he preferred to introduce himself - had gone most of high school with few enough friends, but college was a different beast. It was nice to have a friend, especially one who was just as happy to keep him a roommate subsequent years in college. For a guy that didn't have a lot of friends coming out of senior year - having dove pretty hard into his classes to place well his junior and senior years - that friend was pretty much a life preserver when he let school swallow him up from every other friend he made at college.

Spending the next few years as roommates after college acted as much the same life preserver. He'd moved away from his own family - only seeing them when he could afford time off to make the trip. Considering how much Ethan had done for him, with or without knowing it, he wanted to help as much as he could when Ethan's life was thrown on its head. All his offers just felt empty compared to the weight he knew was weighing on his friend. He didn't know how to make arrangements for funerals or any of that. The best he could do was offer his condolences, give his friend a shoulder when he wanted it, and at least try to make things easier. He had been saving for a trip to see his own family at the time, but he'd offered to cover the full costs of their apartment while Ethan got his family's affairs in order. Not much, but it was something he knew he could do.

That left a long month of pulling as much over time as he could to help make the whole transition smooth. They already were renting a three bedroom - it helped them set up a room as an office for them both to use to work from home without crowding their rooms with desks and computers. That wasn't going to be the case anymore. But Steve hadn't even really given it much thought until last weekend when he and Ethan talked about him helping get the place ready for Olivia to move in. It was weird to think that after seven years of it just being him and Ethan sharing a place with their various friends coming and going there'd be someone else there. But he'd made sure to get that third bedroom cleared of their stuff, and properly hook up their computer set ups in their own rooms. Once that last computer was running, it was like some kind of clock started ticking.

When he got home that afternoon, he hadn't even noticed Ethan piling up boxes to carry in. There'd been a brown out on the company's grid the night before and he'd gotten called in early to try to trouble shoot and get them operational before work hours. He and the other two poor souls that received the same call weren't lucky enough to get everything going, and it left pretty much everyone in the building complaining about having issues with everything from computers to phones. All day had been spent getting everything up and running with everyone prioritized from company need.

Needless to say, his mind was fried and he was looking forward to just going in his room to crash. Steve scrubbed his face with one hand while the other held his work bag over his shoulder. Completing that scrub, he slid the hand back through his short - well it wasn't short now was it? he needed a hair cut like two months ago from how long it had gotten - brown hair to finish with scrubbing the shorter hair on the back of his head.

His olive green eyes opened to fix on a familiar looking girl sitting on the stairs. Stopping, he blinked. His brain was working a bit slow since it took him another blink before he realized what the teen looked familiar. "Oh, hey, Olivia. I completely forgot you were moving in today. Awesome." He offered her a friendly smile as he dropped his hands to his sides. "Did you have move to unload? I could help finish bringing stuff in," he offered. Yeah, he was tired. That wasn't going to stop him from helping his best friend move his orphaned sister into the apartment.
Finished reformatting. *phew* Only took me three hours between double checking what I'd actually written and making sure I liked the new format, and adding a few plots and fandoms as well as removing a few pairings and fandoms.

Anyways - reformatted, and bumping this.
Gonna bump this again.

I'm only looking for the following idea:

Short and sweet: Set after the events of Tenrou island when the team and the island disappears, we each play 2 OC characters.
The idea is that our characters would team up to be the new strongest team and try to keep Fairy Tail's values and guild alive even as others start to leave and doubt it.
Ideally we'd each play a character that was with the guild before the Tenrou team disappeared and a character that joined afterward.
Outside of that, I don't have much.

If you're interested in this idea, PM me.



I only RP over PMs, using one for ooc stuff and one for the ic.

Partner age: 18+ is preferred. Characters can be younger, though no younger than 16.

Romance is not required but I do like it.

Character sheets are required.

I have 2 characters for this idea already, so if you're interested I'll include their sheets.
Like most rose gardens, this is for looking. Not touching. If you see something here you like and want to build off of - I'm flattered, first, but please contact me before stealing petals. I've spent time cultivating these.

(I may make this prettier when I get home. Just doing this on my android during lunch now.)

Oh yeah...if you RP with me, you'll probably see some familiar faces in new lights....Don't be surprised okay?
I know I shouldn't, but I can't get this idea outta my head. So I'm bumping this with a current craving...
