4: McMaster – ‘Rocketeer’

Sheila McMaster (Elder), Patrick McMaster (Adult), Noreen McMaster (Adult),  Philip McMaster (Teen), Mark McMaster (Toddler)

Philip McMaster likes being a teen, he just wished that it also didn’t mean he had to babysit his little brother, Mark.  He would much rather be playing video games with Luis or chatting with girls on the phone.  Instead, he was stuck helping out around the house with the animals and watching his brother.

3: McMaster – ‘You Get What You Give’

Sheila McMaster (Elder), Patrick McMaster (Adult), Noreen McMaster (Adult),  Philip McMaster (Child)

Philip McMaster was not the world’s best student.  In fact, he wasn’t even really a moderately good student.  The only thing he liked about school was seeing his friends.  Still, after bringing home a ‘D’ on his most recent report card, he was forced to hit the books a little harder.

He woke up early before school and finished his homework.  Philip had inherited his family’s penchant for waking up early, so it really wasn’t a bother.  Besides, it kept his mom from nagging him and that was good enough for him!  The less she nagged, the more time he had to play with Luis.

2: McMaster 2 – ‘Big Empty’

Kelly McMaster (Young Adult) [ Oskar Novak (Adult) ]

Kelly McMaster’s life is really starting to look up.  Despite her family’s financial issues, Kelly was able to move out on her own (again).  She loved her apartment in Aperture City.  It was great to have freedom again.  It was a little lonely, though.  Kelly had never been one to enjoy living alone for extended periods of time.  At least it was close to her job.

2: McMaster – ‘Closing Time’

Sheila McMaster (Elder), Patrick McMaster (Adult), Noreen McMaster (Adult), Kelly McMaster (Young Adult), Philip McMaster (Child)

Sheila and Noreen sat on the couch watching soap operas as they did every day.  Noreen, despite being a couch potato, felt the need for something more.  She just felt like she should be doing more.

“Maybe we should go to the park or something.”

“Ha!” Sheila laughed.  “Are you kidding?  Those park benches are rough on an old woman’s behind.  No, I’m quite happy here on my couch, thanks.”

“I just feel like we should be doing something…”

1: McMaster – ‘December’

Sheila McMaster (Elder), Patrick McMaster (Adult), Noreen McMaster (Adult), Kelly McMaster (Young Adult), Philip McMaster (Toddler)

Kelly McMaster entered her childhood home after several years away only to be hit with quite the shock–everything was gone.

“Oh, my God,” she gasped, standing in the middle of what was once the living room, “they took everything!”

She had returned to Aperture Valley because her father had died.  He was never sick, he didn’t show any signs of slowing down, he just dropped over one day and that was it.  He was dead.  By the time she arrived, it was the day of his funeral.  She didn’t have a chance to see the house until now with everything that had happened.

“Kelly?  We’re in here.”  It was her brother’s voice calling her into the kitchen.
