Yes, we've already discussed much of our angle at length, and are so well-attuned to each other that I'm expecting everything here to just flow naturally. I believe that this angle is premier for both characters, not only because it establishes and forms a significant connection that will prove to be effectual and defining for them both, but because it acts as something of a probe into their minds; into their overall makeup, and relays all the relevant elements that have been contributory to how each of them receives and approaches the world around them. Although romance and passion are undoubtedly key elements to their story, a number of dark layers are revealed over time as they're peeled back; layers that prove to be both oppressive and crippling to their growth and understanding. The fact that you normally have such pronounced and definitive ideas of how you envision everything playing out makes me giddy with excitement (no, really) and gives me enough confidence to accept that this is a storyline that we're about to turn out on its head.

Although from the distance the pairing seems to be a direct mismatch, Andrew's affable and jocular disposition serve as a near-perfect complement to Bobby's more destructive tendencies of petulance and belligerence; that he tends to serve as a something of an effective 'cooler' in times when Bobby can get a bit... chaotic. In that regard, I think our dynamic should lean more towards an established friendship, versus something premature and only newly-formed. I feel like this angle is essential only because Bobby is a character with so much to unpack (most notably, the destructive lasting effects of cold war) and having a steady, reliable foundation is perhaps the only thing that's kept him from imploding to this point. Andrew acts a something of an anchor in this regard --- not only as a (barely-competent) makeshift therapist at times when chaotic bouts of trauma threaten to consume him, but keeping Bobby from succumbing to his hedonistic tendencies, as well. Essentially, he's kept Bobby from going back to the pen more times than anyone has cared to keep a record of. On that note, the gleaming, dynamic bromance is only one element of this electric pairing. For now, we can just say that, with extensive coercion, Bobby has been able to find use of Drew's aptitude for thievery and chicanery --- something that they both believe they've been able to execute to remarkable effect. Of course, at the end of the day, they are still legitimately polar opposites where ideals are concerned, and that tends to invite some notable conflict and creates several key moments in their relationship. But all-in-all, I'm super excited that you've chosen to work alongside me on this. I can't say that I have a great deal of experience where role-playing is concerned, but I'm grateful that I have someone with (seemingly) enough know-how to steer me in a good direction, and hopefully help me develop beyond my own comfort.

He typically lives his life day by day, with no concept of long term repercussions or endgame. His relationship status is chiefly non-existent, choosing the path of a bachelor, with only casual sexual encounters—an act he enjoys and thrives in, greatly. He relishes pushing his peak physique to its limits and is very physically active, fitness and boxing training being his only means of discipline. occupation: Ex-Marine / Carpenter and Construction Worker class: Middle Class genealogy: Robert Carter, father, deceased; Katherine Carter (nee Nichols), mother, age 51 BIOGRAPHY: Born Boston strong on the eastern coast of the United States, young Robert Carter II and his two loving, devoted parents were the portrait of an All-American family—as sweet and American as apple pie. His father Robert, a working marine, and his mother Katherine, a teacher, toiled diligently to provide their miracle baby with the best life imaginable; one full of warmth and tenderness. For them, Bobby was the rare gift for which there was no worthy value. An only child, Bobby’s irresistible personality, charm and good looks were hard to deny from the onset, the young “patriot” always vying to be the center of attention and the group clown in any setting he was placed in. To that, he had a strong penchant for mischief, practicing a wide variety of pranks on both peers and preceptors. So when the family decided to relocate to San Diego, California for Robert Sr. to begin a career as a chief level instructor on a US military base, it was no tall order for Bobby to quickly make a variety of new friends. But in a single moment, the comfort of the varied company Bobby enjoyed would soon turn to desolation—a loneliness so cold and dark, that it was as if he’d fallen and sunken into the vast depths of the Pacific. It was no secret how much Bobby adored and admired his father, more than anyone in the world. Every time his father came around, it was as if Superman was standing before him; he was a real life American superhero. It was ironic, then, that his father’s kryptonite would not be the insurmountable disasters of war, but a gang member’s careless bullet through the soldier’s skull one calm night, as Robert and Bobby were out for ice cream. It was a seminal moment for Bobby, one which froze his intangible soul, at only age 9. His subsequent years, namely his adolescence, were spent placing blame onto any and everyone, including his mother who would remarry to another military member. But after years spent brooding and soul-searching, Bobby thought he’d find something to fill his emptiness by joining the marine corps himself, also hoping it would serve to reconnect him with his fallen hero: his father. His training was grueling, but Bobby took to it like a glass slipper, his natural athleticism and peak physique putting him a step ahead of his contemporaries. But as fast as the training came and went, so would come the call to arms, Bobby forced onto the battle lines at just 18 years of age to fight in the 1990 Gulf War. Physically, he was more than ready. But mentally, he had no idea what he was diving into. The destruction and chaos swept over him, his eyes nearly blackening from the smoke and debris, but not enough to blind him from witnessing the bodies of the innocent and his comrades falling around him, in pools of blood, bone and flesh. It wasn’t before long that the horrifying sights and sounds would make him absolutely numb. Then from there, he’d come out of body, watching as he himself would partake and almost relish in the brutality of war. He’d become a monster; someone he nor anyone in his life would recognize. And it would shock and traumatize him for the rest of his young life, even after the war had ended. As Bobby set foot back onto American soil, he was a different person. Stood still was the cocky, mischievous and good humored Bostonian boy, but in his core burned a feverish rage, which he tried and failed to suppress. The war made him highly explosive, as did the memory of his father, who he saw all through the fire and flames abroad. Soon, his “monster” would rear its head again once he got intel on the affiliates of the gang member who murdered his father, sending him onto a vicious rampage that would result in his arrest and five year incarceration for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The blood metaphorically stained his hands for the entirety of his sentence, with many inmates made aware of his past and reputation. He’d try to wash it away, wanting to use his sentence to get through his trauma and become a better man, but he was forced to wear his wounds openly and use those around him to survive. He thought he had escaped war, but it seemed he was in the midst of a new; one which he ignited. In the fall of 1996, Bobby was released from prison, and decided to carry on as normal a life as he could from here on out, for he had many years ahead of him at just 24 years of age. Taking on freelance work as a construction worker and carpenter, he let his new career path and new friends consume as much of his time as possible, in order to mute the sounds of hell on earth that were carved into his mind. He was still full of demons; phenomenally damaged. And he still had vengeance lurking through the shadows of his mind. But he made sure to never lose touch of that magnetic, trouble-making, All-American boy from Boston, Mass., for it helped to keep him grounded and sane. It remained to be seen if Bobby was beyond repair; maybe he was fated to be vessel for menace? Maybe he was that “monster”? Now, all he could hope for was to somehow do right by his father’s memory and make him proud. PLATONIC: Bobby does not do much in the way of friendships. His natural charisma and enviable charm ensure that he rarely ever lacks company or attention, but he never measures these as anything beyond superficial, and tends to find comfort and solace in being left to his own devices. He’ll react almost instantly to any smooth-talking attractive woman, however, and also somewhat genuinely admires any person with as twisted a sense of humor as his is. Mostly surrounds himself with company most would consider “unethical”, so a large number of his exchanges tend to be less than admirable. ANTAGONISTIC: Known for having a relatively short fuse, it doesn’t take much for the hot-headed Bobby Carter to get severely pissed off. Despite his extensive and practically renowned history with the armed forces, his discipline doesn’t exist beyond his fitness regimen, having found himself embroiled in many a bloody brawl. People from his recent criminal past or those he may have crossed (or have crossed him) can find themselves in this category. ROMANTIC: An instinctive flirt, Bobby never had any issue causing members of the opposite sex to swoon. Casual encounters take prominence, the young male preferring to submit to his lustful inclinations rather than get emotionally attached. It’s a revolving door of sexual liaisons, with the bachelor carrying the reputation of quite the philanderer. But this trait proves to be merely a defense mechanism. Sex as the sole objective is used to keep him at bay, but far away from getting someone he cares for tangled in his complexities. He absolutely respects women, their strength and their beauty, a lesson taught to him by his stern mother, but he does what is necessary to prevent them from sticking around. Should someone special capture his heart, he might try to soften and look to settle down into a more idealistic American lifestyle. And that someone could strike out of nowhere. OTHER: Open to anything that’s contextual to the character and his arc. If it doesn’t get in the way of planned plots, I’ll happily consider. no triggers, 24, EST, discord  
  4. Best Scene in Comic Book Movie History

    Love that I anticipated the predictable Endgame scene being mentioned before I even read through. If anything, this is hands down the most iconic sequence of the Avengers franchise. It's practically a staple (and even gets its due in Endgame, as it should). Well, this and pretty much any of Thor's entrances in any of the films.
  5. The Black Widow arc is now outdated and non-sensical given the circumstances. It pains me that the film will exist as nothing more than a retrospective and likely only emcompass her origin story, while having little to no bearing on the current events standing in the MCU. That is, of course, unless they run some bullshit angle where she is ~magically rejuvenated somehow (as is a running arc in the superhero comicverse), in which I just might kms. I apologize for the word vomit this coconut rum is providing right now, but I'm just unable to make sense of where BW is headed without some provided closure. Of the upcoming programs, I would like to say that I'm most excited for the third installment of GotG w/ the addition of Thor, but given how the second one played out, idts.
