Idiot needs social life

TOM SCOTT's
RP Request

Image


1) What is one plot or relationship you'd love to RP with this character?

- Tom is still married, but at the moment his wife and he are separated, because they had issues. Or as the wife would put it: Tom has issues. I’d love for Tom to have an affair (eww!). (And hopefully leave his wife.) I don’t like to plan it out in detail. Just play out what feels right in the flow of things. Tom would probably avoid telling that he is in fact married, at first. So there’s your drama, if you like!

- Tom sticks to himself mostly, so I wouldn’t imagine him to have many friends, but he needs some. Friends, to Tom, would mostly be people he goes drinking with, people he watches football with, people he watches quidditch with. Nothing deep in the first place, although it may go deeper if you want or if the story takes us there. It is important to know that Tom has a working class background, and as a security guard finds himself in that category as well. He does not normally socialise with people outside of ‘his own kind’, so colleague security guards or other people in that range would be the one he would most likely hang out with. We can either assume they have been friends for a long time already and develop the background together, or we can begin from the beginning.

2) What is one part of the character's backstory you'd love to explore through RP?

- Tom was in hiding with his family during the second wizarding war, since he is a muggle born and his wife’s father a reknown auror. They would have been provided with their sustenance by the resistance and would have contributed with administrative tasks and fixing damaged supplies. It would be great if we could either play out time-turner threads or if Tom would now reconnect with people who helped him and his family.

- Old school mates! (Is there any character his age on this forum?)

3) Create an open thread (or roll one up in Accio) and post it in Join My Thread, Yo!

Killing time > Help Tom kill time and you get cookies! Or whiskey, likely. Anyone can join! Tom needs to get drunk with someone. No really, he needs a social life.


4) Any other optional information about this character:

Trigger: Mild child abuse in the background. This will probably not be brought up in our rp though, but just in case: as Tom’s son got into his teens, Tom struggled more with handling him. Tom sometimes got rather aggressive towards him. Also, Tom himself had a rough relationship with his mother. If our characters would get involved at a deep level, these things may be referred to now and then, so be warned.

Trigger: Extreme stupidity.

OOOO! Older characters unite!

I have Charlie. She might seem a little too bubble gum pop for Tom's liking but, she's super down to earth usually, a bit temperamental. I think the dynamic could be cool to explore.

Winnie is about the same age as him so they might know each other from school, but I imagine they would've run in different circles. But idk... maybe they could get set up on a blind date or something? I also don't like to plan things out in detail and leave stuff open, so the blind date could be absolutely terrible and they might hate each other and I'd be 100% cool with that

There's also Angus who's a few years older but he seems like he might have some of the same sorts of interests?

@Sander: *cough*Tom should totally get his nails done by Charlie*cough*. No, that sounds great! Shall I try and start a thread in the mall? I don't think he'd come to her beauty parlour, but I assume she'd get out of that place and walk around now and then.

@Twufoo: I'm totally in for throwing Winnie and Tom together. Tom wouldn't really be in for a bind date. He's not actively seeking to date. It's more that he does like staring at the ladies and would try to flirt a bit (try, because he's actually awkward). And if he'd feel he's getting away with it he'd carry on. If she ever goes to the pub, you might throw her into my open thread there. Breaking the ice is easier when drunk. They could definitely know each other from school. I always assumed most students of the same period would at least have known each other vaguely, since there are so few of them. If you want, we could work out a old school enemies now being grown up thing.

I don't think he would BUT Charlie can be pretty persuasive (read: pushy) so, lets do it!

Oh, I did not reply about Angus! Maybe Tom can be one of the kids he beat up in school, and now they meet again! That would be awkward :)

Thanks for that Twufoo! Sorry Tom's so lame to rp with. I'll make sure to get him drunk fast and then it will go easier.

Willy is brand spankin new to the ministry, and relatively idiotic as well. Also in the same paygrade circle, being only a clerk/receptionist. I could see him buggin Tom for info on what the heck is going on 95% of the time. It'd take him awhile for him to realize Tom didn't actually know anything either. By which time they could go for a drink or something.

Thanks for replying Gary! That sounds great actually! I'd love to see Tom interact with newbies. Would you mind starting a thread for us?
