Dominic Cosaro (Adult)
Dominic was a pretty happy bachelor. The only woman he really had to worry about was his aging dog, Lola. It seemed like forever since he’d brought her home as a puppy. They’d had a good, long run together in Aperture City.
It was hard not to notice her greying fur and the slight limp she walked with now. Dominic did his best to console himself with the fact that she still had time left in her yet.

Patrick McMaster (Elder), Noreen McMaster (Elder), Philip McMaster (Young Adult), Bianca Ornelas (Young Adult), Mark McMaster (Young Adult)
Philip McMaster wasn’t nervous as he greeted his long-time best friend, Luis Martel. He was getting married within the hour, but he was cool as cucumber. Outside, the temperature was rapidly dropping and it had been snowing for hours. Winter had just barely begun and already, they knew it was going to be pretty harsh.
“You’re next!” Philip joked, giving Luis a friendly jab.
“Not until it’s warm,” Luis said, glancing at the open door as another blast of cold air entered the room. Oskar shuffled in and closed it behind him. Luis shivered. “I’ll never get used to the cold.”
Philip laughed. “You’re in the wrong neck of the woods for warmth, man.”

So, I forgot to post the round 11 ROS… oops! Here it is.
Ugh, the electrocution one. Should be interesting, to say the least…
Lily Ashton (Young Adult)
Lily Ashton moved from Aperture Valley into the city in hopes of pursuing a career in writing music. She was talented enough, it was just a matter of getting a foot in the door. It was proving to be more difficult than she had anticipated.
She woke up late most days, a headache forming behind her eyes from the night before. It appeared that the music types liked to party. If she wanted to successfully schmooze her way in, she had to keep up. It made for some pretty interesting nights, at the very least.

Luis Martel (Young Adult), Gwendolyn Mosley (Young Adult), Sacha Harcourt (Young Adult)
Luis had spent a lot of time with Philip in the months after Sacha gave him “the news.” He hadn’t really expected to be a father before he was even in a fully-formed relationship. It was all a bit… shocking. Talking it over with Philip made him feel a little better.
“Do you know how much babies cost? Lots,” Luis moaned, taking another quick drink. “And Sacha’s career. You know what babies do to careers!”
Philip chuckled. “Sacha doesn’t seem near as hung up about it as you are. I think you need to just chill out. Be glad it’s with someone like her and not someone crazy…”
“You’re talking about Gwen, aren’t you?” Luis shook his head. “That’s just a messed up situation, man… and I had nothing to do with it! But… I guess that’s what happens, isn’t it?”
“Who would have thought, you know? That’s life.”

Stefan Novak (Young Adult), Paula Novak (Young Adult)
“Hurry up, Paula,” Stefan grumbled as he watched his twin sister chatter away on her cell phone. “We’re going to be late.”
Paula ignored his warning, as she usually did. She was on the phone with their father. Her charges had cleared and she wouldn’t be spending anymore time in jail, but she had a record now. They would have to go through another bought of trials to get it expunged.
She clicked the cell phone off and sent her impatient brother a rueful look. “You could talk to daddy sometimes, too, you know.”
Stefan rolled his eyes and moved towards the door. “Not this again. Come on, Paula.”
