"very insightful," he compliments, "i'm from phoenix. around a few years ago, i hopped on a bus and," he drifts off for a second before giving a shrug, "it got me here." he spared the details on why he left, determined to keep the mood light. his smile wavered the slightest when she hinted at not wanting anything between them past tonight. seeing her had felt like love at first sight and he had been hoping she felt the same for him, but he shook it off; one night with a beauty such as emma was more than enough for him. he answers the question with a nod, wrapping his arm around her, "yeah, i'm single," he said with another small chuckle, not wanting the disappointment to go noticed.

"okay, great, fantastic. let me just grab my guitar and we'll head on out," he informed, reaching down to the chair the case was on and closing it up. he looped the case around one shoulder before taking her hand and leading them to the door, letting go of the hand so he could open it for her.

"no, no, it's fine, i'd love to have you over. that or i could give you a little tour around this part of the city, but there's not that many places still open, so..." he drifted off from his sentence and quickly shifted into a new one; "also i should be making an apology of my own. it was insensitive of me to bring up such a topic without considering how it can be," he took a moment to find the right word before continuing, "it can be troubling for some."

"well really, thank you so much, it's always a pleasure to hear from a fan," especially such a gorgeous one like you, he thought to himself, but held his tongue from there. as she took a more enticing disposition, august couldn't resist letting his eyes wander for a moment, his gaze trailing down her rather exposed, hourglass body. the sight sent a chill down his spine and brought a flush to his cheeks. she really was one of the most beatiful women he'd ever seen. when she spoke, he darted his eyes back up to her, his blush getting brighter at just how obvious he was being. however, when hearing her words, he started to wonder... could it be? was she flirting with him? as she went on, it really started to hit him; she was definitely flirting with him. play it cool, play it cool, you've been there before. he was not playing it near as cool as he would like to admit. his face was a shade of pink that was embarrassing to sport, but thinking about it would just make it worse so he didn't allow himself to, and though he tried with all his might he just couldn't bite down that grin. he let out a small hum of thought as he worked on what to say, finally speaking with gladness that he wasn't stuttering over himself. "thank you again, you really are too kind. the bar's going to be closing for the night soon, but i could walk you home, if you'd like?" MONTY

"moving on from that," he muttered under his breath in annoyance before putting his focus back on emma, letting their eyes meet. "yeah, i haven't had the chance to do much bigger than this yet, but i still have pretty high hopes of getting discovered. oh, and i'm august, it's very nice to meet you." MONTY

BIOGRAPHY: basil grew up in a home that was loving enough, but also had a lot of problems. he was in the middle of seven kids that all felt a bit of a need to compete for attention. the parents had a very traditional view on catholicism that was rather strict. and with the amount of mouths that needed to be fed, money was always tight and there was never much room around the house, leaving basil sharing a room with both of his brothers for most of his childhood. he loved his family to death even with it’s problems, but things got more complicated the older he got. he didn’t feel comfortable in his own skin for a pretty long time as he started to discover more about who he was, something he grew to resent his parents for due to a couple rude comments thrown about towards certain things. then when he had finally been able to come out to them, despite their insistence that they were fine with it, basil could feel an underlying tension rise to the surface that he knew wasn’t there before. to this day, he’ll make a lot of calls to his parents and siblings individually and on a regular basis, but he makes a lot of excuses to get out of visiting his parents in particular. coming to olympia was a bit of a whirlwind decision; he had no clue where to go after college and olympia just happened to be a pretty nice city nearby. he’s been enjoying life on his own for a while now, staying away from home rather pointedly despite missing it because he just needed a break from the chaos. his life is rather simple, constantly going from one place to the next but avoiding anything that could prove to be truly life-changing in favor of what he knows is safe. PLATONIC: basil doesn't easily let people too far past the surface, usually cutting people off based on first impression (along with second, third, and many others; it's a little exhausting). but once someone manages to get through the layers of security placed, they've earned an endlessly loyal friend ready to do anything for them, something that some who wiggle their way through could take advantage of effortlessly. his friends are family in his eyes, and he won’t let them go easily. ANTAGONISTIC: as charming as he is most of the time, i can easily picture basil getting on some people’s nerves because he can be a little picky at times. he's very social, but also very particular about who he'll stick around with, and he doesn't really have much of a filter on him which can cause a lot of problems with some. ROMANTIC: there will soon be an endgame request added here as i have a lot of specifics in mind for that, but i'd also love a lot of flings for him. he's a bit of a heartbreaker due to particular commitment issues in this department, never sleeping with the same guy more than once, so no doubt some of these flings will end worse than others. OTHER: i can’t think of much of anything else except maybe a couple of his siblings? or not, idk, we’ll see what happens. no triggers (warning needed), 19, cest, discord (fireflyingaway#7353)

"it's last call and this is my last song," he announces to the crowd, ready to end another amazing night. it wasn't even close to a full house, august figuring most of his regular visitors were probably out of town for vacation, but numbers never stuck out to him that much anyhow. all he really needed was his guitar and he was fine, but he always loved using his talents to make others happy. he had decided to end the night with something slow and soulful, playing the starting cords as a second nature. it was one of the first songs he ever learned to play. "are you lonesome tonight? do you miss me tonight? are you sorry we drifted apart?" it was then that he saw her in the crowd, her ivory skin glittering in the lights. her blonde locks perfectly framed her face and her gorgeous brown eyes sent a small jolt of electricity through his spine. he took a half a second to bite down a bashful, boyish grin that leaked through despite his objection before looking down at his guitar, trying to keep his focus on the music and just stop staring. she was that beautiful. (fuck, he must've been blushing like a teenage girl.) he was fighting it, but his eyes seemed to gravitate towards her no matter how he worked to bring them elsewhere. she had just arrived he decided, despite having missed it, something that brought up his curiosity. what would bring a girl like that in for the last minute? she couldn't have just decided to wander in for a drink. it was an odd conclusion for him to make, but he just knew she couldn't have been there before. he would've seen her. he would never miss a girl like that in a crowd. who could? "is your heart filled with pain? shall i come back again? tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?" he finished the song and the crowd gave its final applause, causing another smile to erupt onto his face. it was too easy to tell where his passion lied. "thank you," he muttered into the mic as a last note before backing away to take off his guitar strap and make his way off the stage. while stepping down, he had taken a couple more glances the lady's way before focusing on getting the guitar in her case. okay, you have to stop staring, he told himself, you're going to make her uncomfortable.

don’t call him this). age / apparent age: 21 zodiac: leo. date of birth: 08/20/1975 place of birth: phoenix, arizona, usa. pronouns: he, him, his. sexuality: bisexual. moral alignment: chaotic good. character traits: bold, creative, observant, talkative, curious, sensitive, easily bored, conflict-averse, careless. world views: august has a very “live and let live” outlook. ethnicity, sexuality, religion, none of those things really matter to him; as long as you’re nice to him, he’ll be nice to you. august’s honestly not sure what he thinks of the world’s issues, and he’s not sure he cares. he’d rather focus on jamming on his guitar and flirting with hot people than bothering with religion and politics. physical attributes: straight blonde medium-length hair (that he low-key works on for like an hour every morning), crystal blue eyes filled with mirth, average height, thin frame, pale skin. musical taste: music is one of august’s many passions no matter the style, but he particularly has a love for rock and roll. oddly enough, he especially holds a lot of older artists in his heart, the stuff he would listen to when he was growing up. everything from elvis and the beatles to bon jovi and aerosmith, the decade it came from never mattered to him as much as the style. he was especially a huge fan of queen when he was little, and if you were to ask about his biggest inspiration, he’d most likely answer freddie mercury without a second thought to it. aesthetic: cool and casual with a slight rebellious flare. button-ups (that are rarely buttoned up all the way), sweaters, leather jackets, and a lot of blue jean material. he also almost always has a cigarette in his mouth. lifestyle: his main priority is to live and love, so he rarely gives care to much else. he lives a life that often takes him to the edge and he doesn’t like being protected, so he has a way of getting into trouble. he loves passionately and frequently, often willing to give his whole heart to someone he had just met on the street, but his love conquests rarely work out for him. of course, he knows to take life seriously to a certain extent-- this being the only reason he works at this local diner-- but his music matters way more to him than waiting tables ever could. occupation: waiter / aspiring musician. class: working class. genealogy: celeste keller (mother, age 45); felix keller (dad, age 47); aurora keller (twin sister, age 21) BIOGRAPHY: [willing to edit depending on the wishes of whoever makes the artemis] as the sun rose on august 20th, celeste gave birth to a bubbling set of twins. auggie and rory were the best of friends growing up, but there was always this underlying sense of intensity, on august’s part at least. both twins desired a sense of a personal identity, something they didn’t get often as they were usually referred to as “the keller twins”. but this was the least of problems in august’s mind, who felt intimidated by how many seemed to favor aurora over him. she was a strong, confident child growing up, who knew exactly what she wanted in life and exactly how to get it. she was a constant one-upper, always giving her all into everything. and then there was august, who spent most of his childhood in his room listening to music on a portable cassette player. things got even worse for him when they entered their teen years, aurora seeming to do everything right while he felt like he was doing everything wrong. coming to terms with his sexuality was an especially nerve-wracking time for him since he wasn’t sure how his family and friends felt about that sort of thing, worried he’d be shunned or abandoned or viewed as a disgrace. it also wasn’t very helpful that a couple of male friends he had crushes on growing up ended up having a thing for his sister. their senior year of high school was the last straw for august as aurora got a plethora of academic and athletic scholarships and plenty of options of where to go to college while august didn’t even know where to start with applications. therefore, one summer night, august snuck out of the house and ran off without even a note to his family. he figured he was going to get kicked out one of these days anyhow, why not just get out before it can happen? besides, he was most likely doing them a favor, wasn’t he? he arrived in olympia, california almost two and a half years ago with nothing but the clothes on his back. he had spent a fair amount of time on the streets, taking on some odd jobs just to get a place to live, but he doesn't regret a second spent in olympia. this town helped him grow in his confidence, showed him just what he was capable of, and he'll always be grateful for that. he misses his home and his family like crazy, but he's too prideful to go back now. so instead, he spends his time at wild parties whenever he's not having to serve food and clean tables at a cheap-ass diner. he also likes to perform at every open mic night he can find and has gotten popular with some of the locals for it. PLATONIC: i feel like august would have a lot of friends that are from all walks of life. he's very relaxed and friendly with a sort of calming vibe, and with his musical talents, i can picture him being pretty popular. not a lot of people could be so close to really know about his family life, and i imagine most of his friends being fellow starving artist and dreamers, but i like to think he's the type that can get along pretty well with just about anybody. ANTAGONISTIC: august doesn't like to deal with any conflict, so if he doesn't like someone-- or he feels they don't like him-- he'll most likely just avoid them. he doesn't like to put a lot of negative energy out there, and would rather focus on having a good time than deal with making any enemies. that being said, if he sees someone doing something truly wrong, he's not about to just walk away and pretend it's not happening. he only calls someone out when he really feels he needs to, though. ROMANTIC: august is the epitome of a hopeless romantic. he’s a major flirt and falls in love very easily, but most of his conquest attempts don’t end well. i imagine there's every chance he's had some sort of sexual encounter with almost everyone in town, so there's a lot of potential to work with here. the basis of what i'm saying here is please, please be one of his ex-lovers. OTHER: i will be writing a wanted ad about my hopes for his sister (artemis) and putting it in here eventually. i would love if i got to do my plot idea with her coming into town to get her brother back, but i'm very flexible and understand that the person who wants the artemis might not go for that and that's cool with me! other than that, i can't really think of much to say other than i'm excited to roleplay with ya'll and hear some plots you may have for this poor child. no triggers (warning needed), 19, cst, discord (fireflyingaway#7353)
