bless all of your souls for bearing with me for this ramblefest. i just have a lot of feels ok? so basically i'm making a new character
shock & awe i know you're all surprised
...casper jett rhodes. yes, his name is fuckin' casper and you can blame his mom, agnes harp, for that one. thanks, mom. he goes by cas or cj tho bc he tries to be cool. the key word there is tries. he's kind of a huge mess (bc we all know i love messes). he was shipped off to an all boys school in ny
that he hated
so he's really only been back in avalon full time for the past few years since he started going to college here. (he's 21 btw and i guess i should say his face is fionn whitehead bc i forgot that part too). he's a sweet kid. really. he just tends to go off by himself bc that's what he's used to. and he's pretty much always wearing his headphones.
and probably nearly constantly blasting arcade fire bc the poor boy's obsessed. like don't bring up arcade fire unless you want to know 238043 useless facts about them. actually..probably don't mention music at all bc he can talk for days about all different bands and it's tiring. real tiring.
he's super smart. and eloquent. and he is sometimes basically like a 40 year old man in a 21 year old body. but also sometimes completely acts his age???? idk it's confusing.
ok so like...there's more to be said about cas but we'll leave it there before i write an epic novel. ok so something i haven't mentioned about cas is that he's....very much in the closet. he's making friends with aslan and ben barnes' prince caspian. like he doesn't realize he's in the closet? bc he's so inexperienced and awkward about things that it hasn't really occurred to him yet that he might be gay? except for the time when a girl kissed him and he went 'omg no' and ended up pushing her away and then avoiding her for all of eternity. and so this is where this guy comes in? i would love, love, love it if someone made an aneurin barnard bc long live tommy/gibson and the rest of the dunkirk cast! but like i GUESS i can be open if you have other suggestions?
he's honestly completely open. i imagine he's very confident in himself and who he is. and also intelligent bc otherwise i feel like it'd be hard to keep up with cas? i had a few possible ideas floating around as far as them meeting...like he works at a bar (if he works at the royal -- cas' dad owns it ) and cards cas every single time. at first bc like...'there's no way you're 21' and the rest of the time bc the tips of cas' ears get red every time he makes a big deal out of carding him. OR they live in the same apartment complex across the hall from each other and he leaves his door open like some sort of psychopath and walks around shirtless like wtf? put a shirt on. also equally embarrassing bc cas' mom pops in unannounced all the time and he can probably hear the two of them going back and forth OR IDK IDK i'm literally down for everything? just kind of feel like making cas' life even more miserable than it already is so join me?
