In a local town near the sea, there is an LGBT community: a group of young adolescents are finding their way in life. Some are friends, some don't even know each other... yet. It's the summer holidays and school is out. The town is rather active and busy with people. Some are here on vacation, for some this is their home. Some of the people have summer jobs... Some spend their time at the beach, or elsewhere...
In the town, there are several places: a dancing studio, a library, a school, a local diner (most popular in town), a cinema, a music school, a beach and a surfing club, a Juicebar, a few nightclubs and a park. Month:

Name: Jane Doe "Janie" Hill
Sexuality: Bisexual ~in the closet~
Status: Single, but crushes easier on people from the internet.
Occupation: Library assistant, highschool student
Bio: What's there really to say about Janie? She has two parents that love her, a younger sister and an older brother.
Let's start with, her parents love each other so much, but they had to live away from each other to work. Her brother and sister live with her father and Jane lives with her mum. Her mum was diagnosed as depressed late 2010.
She sees her family every winter for Christmas and her birthday, that's it. Her mothe longs for her father, her father longs for her mother, so that time is usually catch up time with her siblings.
Moving away from family life, Janie is a closet bisexual with only a few knowing. She's shy in person so ahe doesn't have many friends in person. Though, she lets loose in video games. She's a hardcore gamer, playing every game she possibly can. Playing online is her favourite thing to do when she's not in town being a loner or in the library buried in books or helping out. She didn't even apply for the job... She just kind of started doing it when she was 12.
Okay, back to what I was on about... What was I on about?
So, when Jane first realized she was Bi, was when she was 12. She was playing some Extreme Jailbreak with her brother, and met a girl named Indie. They became bestfriends... Which eventually lead to love. They met a couple of times, and were in a stable relationship for three years. Then, Indie's life started going downhill... Until she couldn't take it. She cut her life short, and Janie was left grieving over the girl she loved. This caused her to be so shy, she didn't want to get attatched to someone again.
Uh, moving on...
She plays video games all day with her 24 year old brother and 12 year old sister, in between school and work and exercising/getting some fresh air. She knows how to play the piano/keyboard and the keytar and will often play for her mother to lift her spirits.
She also loves nature and animals with a passion and is a bit hippyish. In any free time she has, she'll take photos of nature, earth and animals, and not to mention herself. She takes pictures of anything and everything, and is a bit of a camera whore. But hey, what does it matter? The people on the internet seem to love her.
Her favourite thing to play on her keyboard is Song of Storms and her favourite game is Ocarina of Time she LoL, cause why not? =)
Other: She has a cat that shes had for nearly 14 years. They're close beyond belief and she loves her more than people. She has an obsession with SlyFoxHound and the other creatures and has on obsession with cats. She's very quiet, but when she's going to show herself, she meows softly then giggles cutely. She has a young girly sound to her voice that makes most people think she's a lot younger and usually makes them aww. She is cute and acts like a cat all the time.
She's very shy and is often called a 'shadow' by her mum because barely anyone notices her and she tends to stay away from attention, in real life.
As a joke between her and her boss, when someone enters the library and searches for books, Jane will creep around cheekily, following them and seeing whether they notice. Let's just say, no one ever has.
She's at the library everyday, as much as she can, and even though her co-workers don't know she exists, she finds it funny to see how long it takes to find out she too worked their.
She is reaaaally into Astronomy, Astrology and anything to do with space and the universe. She studies a lot for school and gets grades through the roof.
Despite losing her loved one she lives life for her, happy and free. She's always having fun with whatever she does and enjoys every day, knowing now she lives for two, loves for two, so on.
She's really elegant, graceful and girly.
She can speak Malay fluent and come from an Asian and Spanish background.
Appearance: Big lips, clear perfect skin, natural curly hair brown hair, wears headbands in a hippie sort of way, wears 4 bracelets, a bead one on her wrist with 'JDL' On it, for Janie, Daniel and Louise, Jane's siblings. Aweaved bracelet Indie made, a Cash Cash fan bracelet, a SlyFoxHound bracelet she made and a Yogscast custom made bracelet.
Wears whatever she feels like, her taste changes all the time.

Rafael walked about his new job looking at the clothes on the rack. He made sure all the correct clothes were where they were supposed to be. He walked over to the cash register to count out the money they had for change. It was his first time on the job and first time opening 'DeLeon Boutigue' in the downtown area.
He set out the hiring sign to let others know that the store needed a couple of shop hands. Rafael straightened his suit and smiled in the mirror. "Alright, Rafael. Lets make it big here," he told himself as he walked to the door. He flipped the sign to open and unlocked the door. He turned on all the lights. "Bring on the customers," he said with a happy expression.
It was 10.30am, and the day was new. The sun was rolling in the blue sky, and the beach was lit up . Skye was walking along the beach, searching for something to do, or just someone to see. His sister was still asleep when he left the house an hour ago, and Kayla seemed to be occupied. "Where is everyone...?" he wondered. The answer to his question came all at once, though. It was the summer holidays. People slept in. He was just a bit of an early bird.
He halted, and glared at the sea. It seemed almost inviting, its crystal waters crashing on to the shore. "A good swim would be a nice start to the day..." he thought, and shrugged. "Why not?" He removed his tank top, kicked off his sneakers and made an instant rush towards the water's edge. As the water touched his legs, he seemed to stumble into its weightlessness. He made a dive into the water, and disappeared for a few seconds. He popped his head out and flicked his wet hair back, falling backwards in the water onto his back. He looked up at the sky. It was clear, and the heat seemed to be increasing timelessly. "Feels like 35 degrees..." he thought. Skye decided to float there a while, letting the water relax him.
Elliot awoke from his sleep, feeling upset again. Still only in his briefs, he opened the curtains to his room. The light from the sun felt as if it was going to burn his eyes out he thought, squinting and letting out a disgruntled moan. He began to get dressed in his jeans, tank top, plaid button up and beanie. When he was done he sat on his bed and sighed, "Come on Elli... be happy for once..." He talked to himself for a while until he found enough strength to go downstairs. He went into the kitchen, going to get milk for cereal. Almost opening the refrigerator, he found a note from his mom that read, "Good morning sweety! Had to take your sister to her job interviews, won't be home until 3pm. Love you!" Elliot sighed again. "Might as well go outside..." He looked out the kitchen window, "It's nice out..." Grabbing his skateboard, he went outside to practice some tricks and ride around.
Adjusting her new camera, Ana sat on her front step, feeling small, cool breezes and the warm sun on her face. She looked around for things to take pictures of, birds, plants, houses, and even the boy down the street, falling over himself trying to perfect his skating.
She came to a small patch of flowers and tried to snap as many pictures as she could, from as many angles as possible. Feeling satisfied, she went inside to develop her photos. Walking into her room, she put some of her favorite new photos on her, "Wall of Fame". She stepped back, and smiled, admiring the pictures she had taken. "Yay!" She exclaimed in a quiet tone, clapping three quick claps.
Kiro biked along the sidewalk, his eyes still squinting against the late morning sun reflecting off the shores. The library was lenient enough to provide him with an hour for lunch, so he thought it best to get a few pictures while he was out. The day was beautiful enough, so he might as well try for a new angle.
The beach was a shot location he was used to, a place he found comfort in. He especially like where the sand turned to rocks, where he could find a multitude of pictures. Kiro was suddenly glad he'd brought his camera along with him today, where it was tucked away in his messenger bag with a few checkouts from the library.
Kiro looked around him and frowned. For a Friday morning, the town wasn't as lively as he'd hoped. Sure, he could see people around, but none he could recognize.
He came across a walkway and chained his bike to a post on the sidewalk, making his way down into the small arrangement of rocks by the piers. There, he pulled off his shoes and began walking across the sandy beach barefoot, reaching inside his bag for his camera. His attention on grasping for the camera, he tripped over a loose rock and fell into the wet sand. Standing up, he saw that his outfit was ruined, the outfit he had spend most of the early morning preparing for the workday soaked and covered in wet sand.
Frowning, he looked around, searching for an idea. His eyes drifting back to his bike on the sidewalk, he remembered a store that he had seen in his rides through downtown. It was some boutique, one that looked nice enough to carry clothes worth his taste. Now at his bike, he began riding, the only issue on his mind being time enough to make a decent outfit choice to return to the library with.
Rafael had got done dealing with a few customers and stored the money in the register. He was happy that the store was doing some decent business. He waved to the customers as they left the store and relaxed. It had been a pretty busy morning, but he loved to work. He watched as a guy riding a bike seemed to be coming over to the shop. He scratched his head as he noticed he was covered with what appeared to be sand. "Uh-Oh," he thought to himself," I better bust out the broom." He got the broom prepared for if he shedded any sand on his floor. He opened the door and tied it to a stand-to to let the nice weather breeze into his store.
Elliot became irritated with practicing and thought back on what the note on his fridge said. "So... Allie's getting a job..." Allie of course was the name of his sister, "Well... I guess I need some extra cash..." Elliot remembered a boutique downtown and also remembered seeing the "Now Hiring" sign in the window. "I hope they're willing to hire a sophomore." Elliot made his way to the boutique, skating there with doubt and hope.
From afar, he noticed a boy that was nicely dressed and that was also walking into the boutique. Elliot knew he had to see him up close.
A young, breathless male found himself running early in the morning from bullies. His step father had to work overtime, since it was the two of them, his stepfather was struggling to keep a job. He ran into a small shop with some sort of French name, he didn't really have the decent time to read the sign, but he had seen the worker's needed sign.
Stumbling in, the young male hid behind some clothes and watched the bullies run by,"Bye bye big buff mean guys..."He mumured as he walked to the register and panted,"I saw... The worker's.... Whew... The worker's needed sign... Is there.. Any slots opened..?"
