Here we go!!

The apartment looks like this:



(I figure that history will be explained by the characters if they so choose.)

Name: Elvira Nightshade
Age: 21
Alias: Spark
Power: Electrokinesis. She can control any electric machine or device using her mind, depending on the complexity she might need to channel her focus through a hand movement (done via controlling the electricity). Also the ability to generate powerful electrical discharges via touch.
Appearance: During the day she looks just like everyone else. She has very short black hair, and because of its length she never really needs to brush it, just a simple combing works. Her eyes are a bright but intense shade of blue with a tinge of green around the iris. Her complexion is not the typical white American, leading most to believe she's of mixed race, and they'd find out they're right, if they asked. She's not too tall, standing only at 5'6''. Her outfit usually consists of faded jeans, some of them have holes in the knees that are not factory cut, a shirt with no image (she'll sometimes wear a camo shirt or something with a stripe of pattern on it), and a pair of good sneakers. During the night she wears a very dark blue hoodie and black jeans. Her shoes are something like a cross between military boots and runners sneakers, with thick rubber soles and strong laces. She also wears a bandanna, that is just a shade darker than her hoodie, over her nose and mouth.

Name: Roxanne (Roxy) Rosewood.
Age: 23
Alias: Pixie
Power: Shapeshifting. If she can think it up, she can recreate it. Wings, claws, horns, you name it. But she can not look like inanimate objects. She regenerates at a rapid speed. Tattoo's do not stick but she can and does get piercings. Senses are heightened or can be cut off at a whim. She is also able to give off pheromones. If she wants someone to be happy, she can send out her pheromones and affect their mood.
Appearance: Her go to appearance is long, golden blonde hair, deep, startling violet eyes, and full red lips. She has four piecing's in each ear: the standard lobe, two hoops between the top of her ear and the lobe, and an industrial. Her tongue is pierced, a single bolt of metal. She has tanned skin and is of medium height but built slimly. Her outfits vary but she tends to wear flowers, feathers or ribbons woven in her hair, dragon and wiccan style jewelry and flowing clothes. Long skirts, dresses, and cutesy doll style clothing. She looks pixie come to life. At night, she shifts her appearance, becoming much smaller. She stands about five feet and changes her physical looks. Some nights it's red hair, others it's black. But her outfit is always the same. A near skin tight purple one-piece. Runes in black are sprawled across the suit. It can grow or shrink to accommodate her shifting. A purple mask, more or less just a thick ribbon with eye holes cut into it, covers her face to give the appearance of hiding her identity. Most of the time, she gives herself massive purple and black butterfly wings. This gives her a airborne advantage, goes along with her alas and to be honest, she just loves to fly.

My roommate will be out at the same time I am, so making a cover story if I'm late won't be too hard. Bruises, cuts, and the occasional burns should be easy too seeing as I am taking a vocational course in electronic repairs... These thoughts and near countless others were flying through Elvira's mind as she walked across the campus to the apartments. She watched the numbers slowly decrease until she reached number 41. That was the address that she'd be living in for the next few years. She took a breath and adjusted her backpack before knocking. She only hoped her roommate wouldn't really notice the accidental spikes in energy that she'd cause once in a while. And the static that she couldn't help creating when she gets nervous.

The sharp knock at the door pulled Roxanne's attention away from her laptop and to the door. Scrambling out of bed and checking the mirror to make sure she didn't look a mess, Roxy ran her palms over her short pink skirt, smoothing out wrinkles. Her white blouse looked good as did her hair. She'd done it up in a curly bun on the top of her head with two coiled curls framing her face. A strand of fake flowers was woven into the braid holding the bun up and she'd artfully placed a butterfly pin in it. Smiling, Roxy bounced to the door in her pink tights, careful not to slip on the bare floor. Please, don't let them think I'm weird...I know I'm a lot but...please, Mother Earth, let this one not find me too over the top. Let us get along and be friends! she prayed, taking a breath before she opened the door. Nervously, she reached up to play with the silver dragon piercing she'd put in this morning as she completed the action.

Elvira had set her suitcase down and was just running her fingers through her hair when the door opened. She completely froze as her eyes met purple ones and then strayed over the pink-clad woman who stood in the doorway. Is this my roommate? She's very, uh...Pink... After a couple moments of awkward silence, El removed her hand from where it had stopped in her hair and offered it to the woman she assumed would be her roommate. "I'm your new roommate," Her eyes locked back onto the purple ones in front of her. "I'm sorry for staring," She apologized as a faint blush tinged her cheeks. She wanted to make a good first impression, but so far this wasn't going so well. The two of them looked totally opposite. El wore ripped jeans, a plain black t-shirt, and her sneakers weren't in the best condition. At least they'd have differences to talk about.

Roxy grinned, shaking her head."Don't be. I'm being rude. Come on in. I'm Roxanne Rosewood. Do you need any help with your bags? I'll show you around. It's not huge but we've got enough space for the two of us. ...I'm not coming on too strong, am I? Just say so and I'll try to pull back."

Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 15:11 (1 Year ago)
The blush almost instantly fell from Elvira's cheeks and a smile took its place. Well, Roxanne was certainly friendly enough. "I've got my bags, and you're doing just fine." She said with a happy chuckle. And here she thought the people in this place would be hoity-toity and snobbish. She picked up her suitcase and stepped inside. "It's definitely bigger than the place I shared before," It looked nice, the walls were a little bare, but she expected that. They were also a nice light shade of beige, it reminded her of the beach a little. "Oh, do you use any candles or incense? Are you allergic to anything?" She knew she'd likely want to use her own candles and incense, but didn't want to cause any issues if her roommate was sensitive to those things. She didn't intend for it to sound like the place smelled bad, but it might've come across that way.
Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 15:19 (1 Year ago)
Roxanne shook her head. "I'm good with all of those. I'm actually a practicing wiccan so those are used in prayers. I use earthly ingredients and rocks for these things. But candles and insence help a lot. You aren't allergic to anything, are you? Or have any health concerns like light sensitivity, headaches or the like?" She asked, closing the door before joining her in the living room.

Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 15:59 (1 Year ago)
"A practicing what now?" Elvira wasn't all that knowledgeable about religions, but her ignorance in the topic didn't cause her to hate anyone who practiced them. Unless they caused problems with her. "And no, I'm not allergic to anything, except maybe not getting enough food and sleep," She added with a wink, hoping her humor would be appreciated here. Unlike with her previous roommate. The thought of him almost made her shudder.
Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 16:08 (1 Year ago)
"Wiccan," Roxy giggled, enjoying her humor. "Kinda like an earthly witch but minus the magic. And I totally get the allergic to lack of sleep and food. Speaking of food...maybe we should get some take out later. To celebrate. I was thinking about chinese for dinner. What about you?" She asked, leading the way to Elvira's bedroom.

Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 16:18 (1 Year ago)
Elvira nodded and followed along behind Roxanne. "That sounds neat, I hope it won't offend you that I don't exactly have a specific religion that I follow." She set her bags down in her room. "Chinese sounds perfect! I saw a nice looking one a few blocks away on my way here." Like the other rooms in the house, her bedroom was bare, but she'd add her own touch to it soon enough.

"Not at all. Practice and believe in whatever you'd like," Roxy said, standing just outside the door so she didn't intrude. "Oh, I think I know which one you're talking about! That place is my favorite. Shall I leave you to get settled? When you would like a tour, I'll be just in there, in my room," the blonde offered, pointing to her door.

Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 17:23 (1 Year ago)
Elvira nodded. "I'll unpack a couple of things, we do a tour, and then go out for food?" She was already liking her roommate. Easy going, but not so laid back that it was annoying. She knew she was going to like it here, the only thing she had to figure out was how the night life would be.
Posted: Mon, 23/01/2017 22:09 (1 Year ago)
Roxy smiled easily as she nodded. "Sounds good to me. I'm going to finish up a couple problems before getting ready." She figured she'd fix up her makeup if she needed to and grab her purse. She wished she could take just a little bitty cross body. But with her outfit needed wherever she went, a messenger bag was her go to. It held everything she needed and of course was cute as all get out. But which one did she want to take... Waving to her roommate, the blonde seemed to dance to her room. Looking over her array of small backpacks and messenger bags, she settled on a pink number with a bow at the top. The drawstring top was easy to pull apart and gave her easy access to the outfit she needed to hide inside. Reaching her hand in to make sure it was where she left it, Roxy nodded and shouldered the bag. Returning to the forgotten laptop, she finished her few homework problems before saving the work and shutting the device down.

Elvira set her suitcase on her bed and unpacked the clothes, making sure to put the sweatshirt and bandanna in her backpack. She would make a point to ask about the crime in the city, perhaps they'd meet a police officer along the way. Before she closed up her backpack she removed the dinosaur of a laptop and set that and the charging cord on the bed too. She never needed to worry about plugging things in since she could charge them herself, but she needed the cord to make it look normal. She slipped the backpack on and walked over to Roxanne's room and knocked softly. "If you're ready, I'd love that tour."

Roxy was just setting aside her laptop as she knocked and hurried over to open it. "Sure! Since we're here, this is my room. You're welcome to come on in if there door is open. If it's closed and I'm in, just knock. Odds are I'm sleeping or changing. Over here is the bathroom," she added, closing the door to her room before opening the bathroom door. "I've confined my things to half the vanity. There are a couple of shelves in the shower. I've claimed the one but if you would like to switch, just let me know. My favorite part is the fact there is a separate clawfoot tub! Definitely nice after a long, stressful day."

Posted: Tue, 24/01/2017 15:24 (1 Year ago)
Elvira poked her head into Roxy's room for a short peek, but removed it before the door shut. She stepped into the bathroom, her eyes a bit wide. "Everything is much bigger than the last place I was, I really think I'm going to like it here." She chuckled. "Clawfoot tub? I'm gonna have to find out what that is for myself." She moved out of the bathroom to provide room for Roxanne. "What do you usually do for food? Me, I specialize in mac and cheese, frozen pizza, ramen noodles, and that sort of a thing..."
Posted: Tue, 24/01/2017 15:38 (1 Year ago)
"Honey, you and I are going to get along famously!" Roxanne grinned, leading the way to the kitchen. "Those happen to be my favorites. Frozen food and microwave dinners are definitely up my alley as a college kid. Anything in the frigde you're welcome to. But my dark chocolate M&M's? I guard those and my Reese's with my life! I'll share, of course, but I stash those in my room," she said impishly. "Silverware is in this draw, she added, pulling out a draw near the sink. "Cups and plates are up above. No dishwasher but if I've found the easiest way to keep up is to just clean them as I use them. There are plenty of baking and cooking utensils but I don't use them as often as I'd like. This is the pantry," Roxane pulled open a slim door, revealing all sorts of goodies like poptarts, coco mix, a variety of tea boxes, cereal, and many more. "If you'd like to move stuff around, feel free just be warned I might come and bug you asking where it is."

"Everything looks to be in a good spot," Elvira spotted the teas. "Except for this..." She grabbed them and placed them in the freezer. "It keeps them fresh and tasting better for longer. I love my teas, not much for coffee, but the smell is really nice." She grinned, planning to grab some candies as a gift while Roxanne wasn't looking. "And I agree, I think we'll get along quite well," She already felt at home, she only hoped that she wouldn't have to move again.
Posted: Tue, 24/01/2017 16:02 (1 Year ago)
"Huh," Roxy said, watching her move the tea. "I didn't know that. But grateful for the info. The dining room is through here," she said, opening another door. There was one door that opened into the hallway and another door that lead to the dinning room. It was an open concept style arch that separated the dinning room from the living room. "I only really use the table while studying and eating. But with you here, we can have meals together if you're up to it. There are TV trays if you'd like to use them in the living room," she added, pointing to them in their nook. There was a large couch that could fold out into a bed if need be, and a couple of chairs framing a coffee table and turned to face the TV on it's stand to the right of the door leading in and out of the apartment. "Oh! The bedrooms both lock. Here is the key to your room," Roxy finished, pointing to a key on the hooks to the left of the door. "Coat closet is here." Smiling, she turned to face her roommate, hoping she would not only get along with her but be friends. She knew she'd have to hide her powers and nightlife but other then that, she was really hopeful.
