so, after much deliberation, i have decided that i will
request dominic's ex-wife and baby mama. in his app i called her rose riley
so she will be refered to as that for the duration of this request.
rose and dominic have known each other for about 4 years in the army. she was the medic and he was soldier. during this time the two of them were stationed out in afghanistan to help set up a safe place for woman and children, with rose giving medical attention to those who needed it, and dominic helping with the building. in the weeks that followed the beginning of that, everything seemed to be going rather smoothly until there was an explosion, and the building collapsed. dominic had gone back inside the building after learning that there was still people in there who needed his help. he was told not to go back inside, and had he actually listened, her wouldn't have ended up with his current injuries - deafness in his right ear and a prosthetic leg.
when dominic woke up, the first face he saw was rose's. from the beginning, rose had been there for him in more ways than just helping him to heal. dominic was in bed for weeks, months and every day he would get a visit from rose, not just to see how he was doing, but to make conversation. there were many times when she would just come to hold his hand and the two of them would sit in silence and fall asleep holding hands. in the months to follow, it became clearer and clearer that rose and dominic were developing feelings for each other, with rose often joking that they weren't going on a date until he could stand up. and dominic joking back that she could always get into the bed with him.
in the months that followed rose was helping dominic to gain more and more strength. it wasn't that much longer before he could get out of the bed, and rose was able to surprise him with a prosthetic leg. she helped him to learn how to use it and to wear it with comfort. by the time dominic was fully discharged from the hospital rose was on leave and he could take her out on that date that they'd often joked about with each other. but now it wasn't a joke, it was so much more... it was a chance to dive headfirst into their feelings, and to become so much more.
they went on so many dates, and three months into dating, dominic had decided that he was going to marry rose. so he brought a ring, and he took her on a date, where he was such a gentleman. he brought her a rose (ha), he pushed her chair in for her, and he paid for absolutely everything. when the time came for him to present the ring to rose, he asked her to forgive him for not kneeling, because he couldn't. dominic noticed that rose had teared up, and she obviously said yes, because a few months down the line the two of them were married. not long after that rose announced that she was pregnant with their first child, and dominic couldn't be more happier.
unfortunately things didn't last all that long. once baby daniel was born, things began to change between rose and dominic, and with a screaming baby added to the chaos of dominic's headaches and night terrors, rose was unable to handle anything. she left one night and that only letter dominic got from rose was the one that served him divorce papers.
daniel is now two years old, and i was thinking that rose could come to avalon for whatever reason. whether it be because she wants to see daniel, or because she's still in love with dominic and has realized her mistake. dominic hasn't been with a woman since he was with rose, and to be honest he is still a little bit hung up on her, because she was a lot of his firsts. what i want is for them to bump into each other again and see what happens. i've put this in the 'other' board, because i'm unsure of if rose wants to still be in love with dominic, or if she just wants to see daniel, and maybe take him from her. whatever the reason is totally going to be up to you.
everything about rose is completely up to you. she doesn't even have to be from avalon. i've requested the lovely face of lacey turner, but i'm also open to suggestions. if you use lacey i ask that she's between 28-33 in compliance with the rules here. if you use someone else please keep the age similar (not younger than 28 though). once you've taken up rose, you can be sure of lots of plotting - mostly from dominic's siblings who kind of hate rose for what she did, but hey! and where we go from her return to avalon is going to be left to organic plotting, because i find that much better than making a specific demand.
so yeah! please consider rose, and i will love you and leave you to make sense of the mess of this plot.
