Since I’m approaching the one year mark with Lydia’s character, I just wanted to say that being in this RP has been amazing. I’ve met a lot of creative people who I’ve become very close to. At the same time, I feel like I’ve grown a lot from being here as both a writer and a person.
Because I wish to extend Lydia’s story past her time in college, I decided to carry over Lydia’s storyline to a new RP account. I’m not leaving WMKU, but I believe there will be more opportunities for Lydia to shine in another RP, after a 4 year time jump.
If you want to, you can follow her at Bklyddybug.
I think that’s about it :) Thank you!
[Raises a brow as she glances back at Lydia] You’ve never heard if Chopin? Huh. Weird. I’m not bad but… [She turns the car down Main St, makes a left] almost odd, I guess. [She shrugs] I dunno. [Chuckles] Queen Quinn of the Coastline? Really? [Nods] Like…respectively, yeah. It’s ginormous, you know and I assume that man hasn’t fully discovered its depth. When you think about it like that, that the lowest portion of ocean isn’t even a fraction of how deep it is? It’s kinda scary, if you ask me. [Shoots a small smile to Lydia] Really? I’ve always wanted to see the site of Mt. Vesuvius. Like it’s… I think it’d be tragic but still something I wanna see. [Pulls the car into a paved lot, parks outside a building with a sign reading ‘The Roller Bowl’. Looks over to Lydia.] You ready to go inside?
Do I detect a bit of judgement in that statement, madam? I don’t approve. [shakes head, frowning] Not at all. [raises eyebrows] I mean, if you think about it like that, then yeah I guess it’s kinda scary. But then again, humans don’t know much about space either. [motions with her hands] People know about our solar system, but think of all the stuff out there that we don’t know. Just like the ocean. [returns her smile with a nudge] We should definitely go someday. And maybe check out Pompeii while we’re at it, too. [Eyes the sign and quirks head to the side as they pull into the lot] Let’s do it! [unbuckles seatbelt and opens the door, hopping out of the car] COME ON, QUINNIE! [twirls in a small circle]
[Shakes her head lightly in amusement] Well, Chopin’s not so bad, so you know, good choice there. [She laughs lightly] Really? It makes me feel like a kid, actually. Oddly enough, I’m one for deep sea diving too. I’ve… [She half shrugs] been around water my whole life, I mean I respect it so it still sorta scares me but yeah… I’d like to try it. Visit an active volcano site or the geysers at Yellowstone?
[Purses her lips] Chopin…I gotta start writing these names down. Their stuff sounds kinda neat. [scrunches her nose] I should’ve known that you’d pick the second one. Since you’re Queen Quinn of the Coastline and all that. [stretches her arms out in front of her and quirks an eyebrow] The ocean scares you? Why? And I think I’d pick the volcano. [rests head back and glances over at Quinn] This might sound nerdy as hell, but the idea of looking for those shiny igneous rocks kinda makes me happy.
[Chuckles to self at the piece that plays] Did you just hit shuffle? I bet you did, didn’t you? [Manuevers the cars towards the center of town and towards their secret destination] Oh, hey. Random question: Sky diving or Deep sea diving?
[bobs head to the music] Not even, the song just had some fancy looking words. Plus, Classical makes me feel smarter. True story. [grins and taps her chin in thought] Well I dunno. Sky diving makes you feel amazing, but there’s nothing to look at. And deep sea diving has tropical fish, but then you run the risk of drowning if some shit goes down. [bites lip and hums] Deep sea diving for sure. What about you, Quinnie?
[Unlocks the door and offers Lydia a small smile] Hey. [She hands over her iPod to the girl] Play whatever, I don’t mind. [Buckles back up, checks her blind spot and leaves the lot] Welcome back, by the way.
[scoots into the car and plops into the passenger seat] Hi. [drops eyes to the mp3 player and scrolls down the playlist] Thanks. It feels kinda nice to be here. Even if the place is still kinda dead. [chuckles and taps on a random classical tune she doesn’t know]
I’m outside. I’ll be the blonde in the black Audi named Philip. Hopefully, you’ll see me :P
[trudges outside with her hands in her pockets and knocks on the passenger window, waving]
Kidnapping, basically. You better be dressed. I’ll be there in like…20. That okay?
Is it still a kidnapping if I wanna go willingly? I’ve sorta been dressed all day. If you wanna call sweats and a tee shirt dressed. But damn…I’ll change and be down in a sec!
