wow. this was long, sorry!
Okay, since I'm technically back from hiatus but cannot currently sign Ashten on due to where she's at, I figured I would see about getting her a few more lines and/or reconnecting with old ones. Here we go! Ashten is an 18 year old senior at Tegesta High School. She was born and raised in Key West and has actually never been out of the state. For the first half of her life she was a pageant child and pretty involved in dance. She still tends a class every now again, but it was never her true passion. That would be acting. She's been a member of the Drama Club since freshman year and loves the stage. She's a very friendly person and can sometimes come off as having ADD. She loves dogs- big dogs and currently has four of them. If no one would stop her, she'd probably want to get more. She also loves food and her favorite thing to feed her inner fatty is ramen noodles. That piece of information is irrelevant, I know but it is Ashten. Another thing she loves? Alcohol. Her father was promoted to a captain for the Monroe County Sheriff's Department three years ago and started spending more and more time away from home- she can sometimes go days without even seeing him. About a year into his promotion, she started having a little rebelious streak and would frequent parties secretly hoping that the cops would be called. With the partying came the drinking and she's developed a bit of a drinking problem that has ultimately put a strain on a lot of her friendships. So that's why I'm here: to hopefully rekindle some things and maybe develop some new ones.
Her best friend since they were toddlers is zjk. He is also the love of her life even if they've had their ups and downs. He's ultimately the reason she's cleaning up her act. savannh is her other best friend who loves her no matter what, even if Ashten can't see why. caiden took her to his junior prom and they've become really close. It's caused some strain with maravilla but I think they've worked through a lot of it. She dated coleb for two months during her sophomore year. He broke her heart when she wouldn't have sex with him and ended up almost sleeping with eggleston (I think they're still here?) at camp that summer just because. Since there was some penetration before they had to flee the scene before getting caught, he is technically the holder of her virginity though Ashten claims it doesn't count. jacksonk is her fake, pretend boyfriend but really he is like an older brother figure to her.
People she's ultimately withdrawn from over time include kaiarandall, gipson, tallant, and nessac. There are more that she's talked to randomly and I would love for them to keep doing that along with anyone else who thinks their character would get along with her.
