Happy New Year! | Hope
Sliding an arm around his neck, she stole several more little kisses from him. She had no intention of getting up right away. She was sitting in the most comfortable seat around after all. “You know, I could get use to having my on personal clothes put-er on-er. You’re pretty great as a take-r off-er too. I kind of have the whole package. Daddy is full service.” Moving her head to lean against his shoulder, she smiled. “When I get huge you’re going to have to help me get my shoes and socks on. Actually, you are basically going to have to help me with most things. I bet you’re going to love it. Or you’re going to get really sick of it really fast.”
“I’m gonna go with option one.”
He said, pulling her into a kiss and sliding his hands slowly up and down her torso. He meant what he said too, one of the one things he was really looking forward to was being able to take care of Hope without her having the option to really argue with him on things. She was stubborn and he loved that about her, but he liked taking care of her too. He lifted her up slightly so he could hook his fingers along her waistband and started pulling her panties down. He leaned back and laid down on the bed, pulling her on top of him and assuming that she would help him take them the rest of the way off.
“I wish I could get you naked without letting go of you at all like… ever.”
He mused, kissing her again.
Happy New Year! | Hope
It was no contest. Hope had her mind made up the moment night swimming was mentioned. Nodding excitedly, she grinned. “I think getting into our bathing suits and spending some time in the pool is the perfect idea.” She leaned in for a quick kiss before she got up and then hopped to finding their bathing suits for them. “I think my doctor said a glass of wine sporadically would be okay but nothing major. A glass of champagne should be just fine.” She managed to dig through both of their bags and locate them pretty easily. She tossed the bathing suits onto the bed and raised her eyebrow at him. Her hands moving to her little bump. “Two of us? There are three here, daddy. We can’t leave out sweet pea.” So it was completely cheesy but it was also completely true. Even though she thought she looked like an absolute cow, she was trying to embrace the bump. Xavier seemed to not mind it at all. That was a blessing. The last thing she needed was him thinking she looked gross.
He loved the bump, even if it seemed like he’d momentarily forgotten about it, which wasn’t the case at all. He sat up and reached out to hook his arms around Hope’s thighs, pulling her closer and blowing a raspberry on her bump.
“Daddy didn’t forget about you and he never will, he just wanted to make mommy feel more special than she already is.”
Because Xavier could be cheesy too, but at the end of his statement, he pulled her down and onto his lap and kissed her right after that. His hands moved up to the back of her bra and he undid it quickly, helping her put her bikini top on a moment later even though we all know he was going to end up taking it off soon enough.
Happy New Year! | Hope
“That was a good one! You should still say excuse me though. Start good habits to teach baby.” Shaking her head at him with a smile on her lips, Hope followed him to the bed and sat down. Her hands instantly going for the zipper on her dress to get it off. “I don’t even want to hear it, mister. You try shoving yourself into a little party dress that you didn’t anticipate being snug because you weren’t supposed to start showing yet. Between the already poking out and the quantity of food in my stomach, I’m going to pop a seam. So tight.” After a little bit of clawing at the zipper, she finally managed to get ahold of it and unzip her dress. “It is definitely comfy clothes time. What do you think?”
He attempted to correct his manners halfheartedly, his eyes not moving from Hope as she struggled to get her dress off. He was about to stand up and help her when she finally worked it and he was treated to a vision of her in her underwear, looking beautiful as fuck. He knew she sometimes felt gross, but she had a little bump now, that they were still calling the bumplet, and seeing that turned him on more than anything else. Maybe that was weird, but whatever, it wasn’t like he could actually help it.
“Comfy clothes work… or…”
He started, thinking for a moment. He wanted sex, yes, but it wasn’t something he needed immediately. He was wired, he had energy, and yet his entire body felt as if it had been hit by a truck.
“Bathing suits? We could take advantage of the fact that everybody’s still out partying and go night swimming? I think they said a glass of champagne’s okay for you, right? Or we could get some sparkling juice or something? I think we should celebrate, just the two of us, you know?”
Happy New Year! | Hope
They’d won. He honestly could not believe it, but they’d won the Rose Bowl. He’d scored too, just once, but it was at the beginning and it had served to get the rest of the Buckeyes suitably riled up, and that’s what they’d all needed. Needless to say, as he was rushed by his family and friends at the end of the game, he felt like he was on top of the world. They’d celebrated as a family, but now he was back at the hotel with Hope. He’d splurged and gotten the two of them one of the villa suites, which gave them access to a private pool and hot tub. He wanted to treat his girl to something nice and not have to worry about people bothering them, and he figured it was a good way for them to ring in the New Year together.
Still dressed in the suit he’d worn to the massive steak dinner they’d gone to, Xavier collapsed on the bed, placed both hands on his stomach and belched loudly.
“Oh my god you have NO idea how good that felt. Not a single clue.”
He called out to Hope, stretching on the bed and sighing with relief as his back cracked slightly. Sometimes he hated how he felt post game, because despite how good he’d played, he couldn’t change the fact that he was sore. Everything hurt.
A New Beginning.
Thank you, it really means a lot to me that you’ve been following us for so long. I think with any role player, knowing that the stuff they’re writing is actually appreciated is a big deal. I don’t really want to touch on your comments about other characters in the roleplay, because like I said in my epic venting of frustration, all of them are amazing. I enjoyed playing with everybody, and even though things ended the way they did, I’m not holding grudges against anybody. When it comes down to it, my friend was hurt, and I supported her by leaving as well. That’s the kind of person I am, can’t really change it =P
But yes! We’re continuing as a 1x1 and encourage you to still follow us if you’re interested.
Also, signing this as xoxo makes me automatically assume that you are Gossip Girl, therefore, hope to see you around, Gossip Girl.
My Kanye Moment.
Okay so, I’m not sure if any of you all will even read this, but I’m going to pretend that you actually are and keep talking, because I like to do that :)
I’ve been debating saying something over the past few days about the blatant hazing that’s been going on here, but decided to stay quiet in hopes that it would blow over and everything would get back to normal. This is a fun roleplay, and it has been since I joined. I felt accepted almost immediately, even though I took on a role of a non-canon character who realistically wouldn’t be interacting with all these people on a regular basis. That’s saying a lot about a roleplay in and of itself, because you don’t see that everywhere. I’m glad I’m able to say I was a part of something like that.
I love Xavier. I love the basics that Kaity put together for his relationship with Santana, and I love what he became because of that. I love his relationship with Hope. I love that even though he was shit scared, he was going to try and do the right thing and prove to everybody that he could be better than his dad. That even though he was having a kid of his own, he wanted to become Santana’s legal guardian if it meant that she wouldn’t have to feel any more pain because of their parents. I love that he took it upon himself to start a fundraiser to help offset the costs of Blaine’s hospital bills. He cares about the people he loves, and who they love in turn. It’s why he doesn’t act fazed when Sebastian talks to him like he’s an idiot, or why he keeps a smile on his face when Hope’s mother calls him a dirty spic. He’s strong, he has heart, and well, he’s sexy as fuck.
But when it comes down to it, Xavier’s just a guy trying to do what he thinks is right, which is why I had him go to Tennessee, because in all honesty, realistically speaking… he had no idea about the online drama that went down, all he knew was that he woke up, chilled with his sister, and was casually told that his pregnant girlfriend was off the grid. Knowing that she hadn’t been sleeping and was feeling sickly, it’s not only logical that he be worried about Hope, but the child he’s having with her. So yeah, he left, and there were consequences, in this case, Santana catching feelings and running away. Or, you know, just doing her own thing and not telling people shit. It was simple, and if it were to actually have been played out, it could have led to some really awesome drama.
I wasn’t around most of the other night when the Hope vs. Sam/Quinn/Santana/Rachel thing went down. Yes, I read back even though Xavier didn’t, and yes, like Xavier, I could see where things were being blown out of proportion on both sides. There was blatant attacking and ganging up going on, and yes, it may have been relevant at the time in character, but eventually it got out of hand. I tried to intervene by posting a ranty gossip blog about it, but that did nothing. I know for a fact that Brandi contacted the admin [Steph] to express that it was getting to be too much and overwhelming for her. I can’t tell people what to do, but as somebody who has administered roleplays with over 200 members for the past few years, when you get a complaint from somebody about hurt feelings ooc, you deal with it. It was dealt with when people were offended by messages in their ask box, it should have been dealt with appropriately then as well. A simple admin message stating that the argument needed to stop or something of the like would have sufficed. I assume something was said because I did notice things tapering off, but a brand new attack was made by the admin’s character, seemingly, to me at least, instigate more drama. Knowing that the person you’re attacking in character is catching feelings from something out of character is usually a sign to ease up, but like most of you have probably seen, the drama simply did not die. I mean for fuck’s sake, the girl almost has a miscarriage in character and she’s being made to feel like shit for not going to a wedding that she very obviously wasn’t wanted at? I know Rachel’s a selfish cunt on the show, but this behavior is just ridiculous.
And yes, I’m sure by now I’ve offended a lot of people, and if I have, I’m sorry, but when it comes down to brass tacks, I’m looking at things head on and interpreting them as I see them. OOC drama happened, it was dealt with, it was supposed to be over. Instead what happened was that some people involved ganged up on another person involved. It’s not cool, and even if the original act was inexcusable in it’s own right, it was supposedly dealt with and swept under the rug. Things shouldn’t have escalated.
The last thing I’m going to say is that I really did have fun here, and I really do like everybody here. I know I named names, and I hate doing that, but at the same time, I watched my friend get relentlessly and unfairly attacked even after saying something about it, and that’s not cool. Nor is the fact that when she gracefully bowed out, the immediate response was a message making her look like the bad guy. That’s not cool. Parting ways is parting ways. Say goodbye, good luck, and it’s done with. We don’t need criticism about our reasons for leaving.
If you’re even still reading this by now, you’ve probably guessed that I’m taking Xavier out of this game. Like I said, I enjoyed playing him, I enjoyed playing with all of you, and I enjoyed the truly good moments that I had here. This decision is my own, and based on how I personally feel about everything that’s gone on in the past week or so. Brandi leaving was the icing on the cake for me, and seeing as how I pushed her to join for me and Xavier in the first place, I think it’s understandable that finding a replacement Hope for Xavier just wouldn’t be the same.
Your characters were truly fun to get to know, and for those of you I spoke to ooc, I enjoyed those conversations as well. Seriously though. I never in my life thought I’d actually LIKE Jesse St. James, nonetheless ship Blesse so hard. Kaity, your Santana was hands down the best Santana I’ve ever played with, ever. I cannot begin to give you enough praise for your characterization of her, and to thank you for the opportunity you gave me to make her big brother. I know there were vague plans for them in the future, but unfortunately, I’m going to have to bow out of them. If you choose to not get a new Xavier and still want him in things, i’m willing to throw him into a chatzy if you’d be up for it.
For everybody else, I know I didn’t socialize Xavier as much as I could have, and I probably missed out on a lot by that, but I was trying to keep him true to the idea of him I had in my head.
I’ll be keeping this account to continue as a 1x1 with Brandi, please unfollow if you don’t want your dash clogged with Evanpez goodness. Unfollow the gossip blog as well, as it will likely eventually be deleted.
Again, apologies for offending people, as I’m sure I did manage to do that, but if I’m gonna go out, might as well be with a bang, right?
That awkward moment when you come home and your character has been made redundant…hmmm.
[private] Well, I guess I’m sorry for interfering and stirring up trouble between you and your sister.
[private] Shut the fuck up with that, will you? I came on my own, you told me to go home. This is on ME, not you, despite what people might be trying to make you think. What pie did you get today?
[private] It really bothers me that she would run to her friends before she would come to you. You do everything you can to be there for her and you are an amazing brother. I don’t understand it. It’s petty.
[private] Because she’s angry AT me. Well, I think so at least. From what I can tell, I think she was offended that I just up and left to come see you the other night. We’d spent the entire day talking and doing the brother/sister thing and then when i found out you were gone, I just up and left. She’s not good at opening up to people, I’m glad she’s got somebody to talk to at the very least.
