I have taken the meme questions from: reenkim.deviantart.com/
though I have no idea where it originally comes from. I will just be updating this journal entry instead of writing 30 separate ones.
Target OC: Keith Lynn Montgomery. He is the first OC I have ever created. He came about in jr. high as a distraction from being bullied and having depression. He has been with me ever since. I have since fleshed out his character and built a world around him. He is incredibly dear to me.
[ DAY o1 ] Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?
Keith grew up in a fairly typical household. Middle class family with a stay at home mother and a father whom he thought worked in the traveling sales business. Keith adored his mother and she was very sweet and loving to him. His father was very abusive to her though and Keith despised him for it. His father never hit Keith, but still as a boy he was very afraid of him. At the age of 13 his father was beating his wife so harshly that Keith thought he may kill her. He lashed out, striking his father and yelling at him. Rage filled his father and Keith, now terrified, ran from him. His goal was the shed, thinking he could pull the lock and just hide out in there until his father calmed down. But his father was right at his heels so when Keith reached the shed he picked up the first think he could grasp in the semi darkness. He turned, holding it out, right as his father thrust open the door and rushed for him. Unknown to either of them until it was too late his father impaled himself on the metal tongs of the rake Keith was holding. His mother died from her wounds that afternoon. Keith was picked up by a mysterious woman named Amanda who claimed his father owed her a debt and now Keith would have to fulfill it...
[ DAY o2 ] What are your characters most prominent physical features?
Keith has pale jade eyes, which he dislikes. They used to be blue, but when his abilities came forth at puberty (telepathy, agility and super human strength) they changed color. This is common, but Keith hates it, not because it points him out as a person with abilities, but because of the color. He just thinks it's ugly. On the other hand though he is well aware of the fact that women and men both find it a very attractive trait so he is not above using them to his advantage to get into someone's bed.
[ DAY o3 ] Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?
Oh dear...Keith has many scars. He was an assassin for Amanda, then when he was able to break away from that he moved to the Noxus kingdom (on another plane of existence a "parallel" universe for lack of a better description) and became a Commander in their military. Because Noxus is a warrior nation he has seen a few battles and thus has many battle scars.
[ DAY o4 ] How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
Keith is not vain in the least, however...he does know people tend to avoid vain persons, so he acts arrogant and cocky most of the time to keep people at bay. He is actually very self conscious because of his past as an assassin (he was paying off the debt his father owed Amanda after his death and he absolutely hated it, it made him feel dirty and worthless). He also, as mentioned before, hates his eye color, so he doesn't feel very attractive most of the time. He does however take great care of his body so he is very muscular and he is proud of his cock. He also grew his platinum blonde hair out, it's shiny and straight and sits at the middle of his back. So while he does allow himself some vanities he is not actually vain. His actions hasn't afforded him a lot of friends, but because his best friend Skylennia, her boyfriend Derrick and Keith's future husband Stately have taken the time to get to know the real him he let them in and adores them deeply.
[ DAY o5 ] What's your character's ranking on the Kinsey Scale?
Kinsey 2- Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual
Keith has only been in one serious relationship with a male when he was a teen long before he met his future husband Stately. He only felt serious emotions for a woman when he was an adult, but she didn't return the sentiment. Keith prefers the female form though for the purposes of sex and was quite taken aback by just how much he desired and craved Stately sexually. It was later that he realized that it was because he cared and loved Stately as a person and he just desperately wanted to make him happy in any way that he could.
[ DAY o6 ] Describe your character's happiest memory.
Keith doesn't remember much before he accidentally killed his father. He knows his mother was very timid and he thinks she loved him but isn't sure. He had a sister who died young from an illness and he tends to (as an adult) forget he ever had a sibling. His happiest memories are with Skylennia (Sky) and Stately and since he treasures all of his time with them there are too many instances to type here.
[ DAY o7 ] Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
Not really, Keith is a firm believer in whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
[ DAY o8 ] Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?
He doesn't like ice cream. Probably black or red. No preference. None.
[ DAY o9 ] Who does your character trust?
Keith trusts his comrades in the military, if he didn't he wouldn't be serving. As far as personal trusts, it would be Stately, Sky and Derrick. He used to trust his old Commander Atlanta, but now he's not so sure after she started to treat him differently once he started a serious relationship with Stately.
[ DAY 1o ] Can you define a turning point in your character's life? Multiples are acceptable.
Meeting Atlanta has to be the biggest turning point for Keith. He hated working for Amanda, but he felt like it was a hopeless situation. Atlanta was an assignment he got and he was prepared to do it, but because of circumstances out of his control he had to use more days than he would have liked to find a way to kill her. This afforded him time to get to know her. In meeting her and learning about her past and the fact that she had abilities too he felt like, with her help, he may be able to get out from under Amanda. And he did. This started him on the road to becoming the respectable man and loving husband he is today.
[ DAY 11 ] Is there an animal you equate with your character?
[ DAY 12 ] How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?
He is very good with technology, but being telepathic he rarely uses it.
[ DAY 13 ] What does your character's bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?
He's sort of a messy sleeper, but he doesn't steal covers or fall off the bed or anything. When he wakes up though he will have some serious bed head!
[ DAY 14 ] How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?
He hates being cold, but if he has something important that needs to be done he will do it anyway, but he'll be complaining most of the time. Heat doesn't bother him, though he hates how his hair feels when it's full of sweat (but who wouldn't hate that!).
[ DAY 15 ] Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?
He's definitely a night owl, but because of his position as a Commander now he has to keep fairly regular hours. He isn't a fan of that, but he knows it's necessary so he adapted quite well.
[ DAY 16 ] Are there any blood relatives that your character is particularly close with, besides the immediate ones? Cousins, Uncles, Grandfathers, Aunts, et cetera. Are there any others that your character practically considers a blood relative?
No. It's just him and he prefers it that way.
[ DAY 17 ] What's your character's desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?
His desk looks messy, but it organized to him. If someone were to come in and clean it up he wouldn't know where anything was anymore.
[ DAY 18 ] Is your character a good cook? What's their favorite recipe, whether they're good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)
He can cook edible foods, but he's not a good cook. He's passable? His favorite thing to eat is BBQ.
[ DAY 19 ] What's your character's preferred means of travel?
When he still lived in his realm by car and plane. Now that he's living in Noxus he walks mostly and uses a horse for longer distances.
[ DAY 2o ] Does your character have any irrational fears?
Not really, he's pretty unobservant when it comes to things that don't have to do with him. And he's very practical, so he has actual fears not irrational ones.
[ DAY 21 ] What would your character's cutie mark be?
What the fuck is a cutie mark? *Yahoo! search* Oh for the love of...*sigh* probably the middle finger (he's ornery like that) or a quill and ink well (he writes poetry, but it's a very rare and private personal thing that is very important to him, so I think that would make a good personality based cutie mark).
[ DAY 22 ] If your character could time travel, where would they go?
To the day he killed his father. He would have ran to the neighbors and plead for them to call 911.
[ DAY 23 ] Is your character superstitious?
[ DAY 24 ] What might your character's ideal romantic partner be?
Truth be told Keith wasn't even really sure himself. He just knew he believed in that whole ideal of settling down, white picket fence and a garden picture of the perfect relationship. Granted that lifestyle wasn't as pleasant to him as the thought of a long lasting committed relationship, where the love was so deep you would live with that picket fence. Not because you had to, but because you wanted
to. Others around him (because of the arrogant mask he's thrown up) never believed he wanted a mate. Hell, some didn't even believe he could fall in love. And while Keith longed for a relationship like that he didn't think he deserved one. He pushed people away before they could figure out his assassin past and judge him harshly for it. So because he never thought he deserved love he never sat around and thought about what he wanted in a partner. He thought it was a waste of time.
[ DAY 25 ] Describe your character's hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?
Keith has large hands, rough from wielding his sword in battle. He'd taken up clearing the weeds from Stately's garden as well so they can be callused at times. Stately absolutely loves the way they feel on his skin when he is caressed by them.
[ DAY 26 ] Second day of favorites! Favorite comfort food, favorite vice (an immoral or evil habit or practice.), favorite outfit, favorite hot drink, favorite time of year, and favorite holiday.
Soup, any kind of soup. Porn. Black tee shirt, dark wash jeans. Coffee with cream. Summer (because he can walk around shirtless and flaunt his body). Founder's Day (Noxus holiday), because they honor the military and he his very proud of Stately and enjoys watching his husband be recognized for his deeds. Stately down plays his importance to the military all the time.
[ DAY 27 ] Pick two songs that describe your character at two different points of their life, and explain why you chose them.
"Fade to Black" ~ Metallica www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1dEBR…
: He had serious periods of darkness. This would definitely be his theme song.
"Still Standing" ~ Elton John www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JfvAP…
: After he got out from under Amanda he fell for his new Commander Atlanta. Maybe it was because she was his savoir or maybe he really did love her. Either way, they didn't last long.
[ DAY 28 ] If your character's life was a genre, what would it be?
A smutty...drama? Lol!
[ DAY 29 ] How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?
Oh he always has an attractive, masculine fragrance. Drakkar Noir, Stetson, Curve for men, etc. nothing fancy, but it always smells good.
[ DAY 3o ] And finally: Write a letter to your character, from yourself.
My Dearest Keith,
I love you, you have helped me through some of the darkest moments of my life. Your flaws mirror my own, but you have the strength I've always wanted. Even though I created you, you are my role model (maybe that's narcissistic of me? Lol!) and I continue to learn from you a lot. Thanks for being in my head! You're a godsend.
