(I'm starting to feel better. Hopefully it'll be gone before the weekend is out. Why are you nervous about your assignment? I mean, just do the best work you can—that's all you can do.)

Seth: *He took one last breath before the audition began, noticing the change in Rylee's attitude immediately when she'd shifted into character. It seemed pretty effortless for her. He hoped it could be like that for him someday. For him, though, it didn't come quite so easily. He still had thoughts rushing through his head, even when he was acting. He inwardly laughed at himself. He was talking like he was a professional. People like Rylee were, not him. This was only his first real audition. He was still an amateur as far as he was concerned. Finally, he forced himself to clear his mind, focusing on the task at hand. He let himself close his eyes for a moment before opening them, in character. He was Elijah now* [Elijah] *His face was nearly expressionless. A small frown was spread across his lips. It came to him immediately upon walking into the classroom, after the look of surprise, which he was quick to hide. He could hear her walking over, the rest of the class having shuffled out as quickly as possible. He wouldn't meet her eyes, though. Not yet. He needed to compose himself- to think of what to say. He needed to be an adult about this.. he was the adult. Though, at the moment it didn't seem like it. Finally, he looked up at her, wincing slightly when he met her eyes. It was as if he held her gaze for too long that night they met would become real. And ever since class started he wanted to pretend it wasn't. He took a breath, his tone even as he responded* Yes. *he paused, suddenly adding, his tone less sure* And it's Mr. Spencer to you. *He sighed, standing up, crossing his arms. A mixture of emotions had crossed his mind throughout the class period. Anger. Nervousness. Guilt. He wasn't sure which he felt now* What do you need, Arielle?

(Same here. I'm taking 3 pretty challenging classes at the moment, so in order to keep my grades at As, I pretty much end up working on HW/Reading 75% of the time I'm not in class, eating, sleeping, etc. I feel like all my down time has gone up in smoke.)

(I do like it, too. I've always liked it. Learning new things is wonderful!! I'm like you, I just don't like that heavy workload, and all that pressure to do well that comes along with it. Thankfully I do get Fridays off, and I'm a little ahead this week, so maybe things will be better for me as well. :))

(Been a super crazy couple of weeks. My boss finished her transition into her new position, and I've started taking over all of her previous duties for the interim. Interviewed for my boss's old position this week, so I'll hopefully find out soon if I got the spot or if they're going to hire externally for it. It would be nice to actually get paid for doing the job I'm doing now to cover for her absence. Kind of nervous, but excited at the same time hoping that I get it. Anyway, not sure I'll be able to get back into the right mindset to pick up where we left off or if I'll just end up skipping again. But I definitely do plan on posting heavy for the next few days so that we can end this topic strong before picking up the Coven Rule Reboot in November. :) :) :) )

Rosalie: *her expression becoming thoughtful as she listened to Thomas tell her character about the havoc the younger vampire was likely to create if he wasn't careful, and then go on to explain about the Children of the Moon beasts in the area. Her voice just above a whisper as she brought the scene into a more serious atmosphere as the script called for* [Nichole] I've heard the stories of these beasts. I've never crossed paths with one before. I'll admit I always thought they were a myth until I smelled their dirty trails around the forest. If they are true Children of the Moon, it will impossible for them to cause us harm until the full moon. That's not for another week. I'll stay until then. Perhaps if I were to speak to the youngster, share with him what happens when you allow yourself to become so fascinated with a human, he'll understand better, and do away with her before it becomes an issue. *using her dire tone to imply there was more to the story than what she was outright telling him. The script was written to allude to the fact that she had once found herself in a similar position, but the full background on that incident wouldn't come out until the episode, this was just a taste of it to make the audience curious enough to tune in the following week*

Jasper: *casually taking Robyn's hand in his own as they walked down the parkway like the script called for them to do, giving David even more motivation to interrupt them when it was time. This was one of the longest speeches that his character would deliver during the entire first season, and it had been a beast to memorize, but the dialogue was so crucial to providing the necessary background for the audience that he had endeavored to do so in record time* [Eric] I was born in December of 1917, a human child to human parents. My father was set to ship out to Europe to fight in World War I when my mother found out she was pregnant with me. He tried to stay behind, but the army wouldn't hear of it. My mother worked as hard as she could to keep the household running here and care for me until he returned. I didn't even know my father until I was over a year old. I suppose that by the time I was old enough to realize where he had been when I was born, I was just thankful that he had survived. That's when I lived here as a child, and why all the baseball cards you found were so old. My childhood was actually very normal. Nothing remarkable ever really happened to me. I was average. Happy. The Great Depression was difficult for everyone, but we were lucky. It didn't strike this tiny town in the middle of nowhere as hard as it did in other places. We were a community in every sense of the word. We took care of each other. I had gone off to university for a couple years and was on my way home to help out over the summer in May of 1937. I was just passing through the woods, not too far from here actually. A man approached me. He looked about half starved and wore only rags for clothes. I offered to help him, and was so concerned for his well being that I didn't even notice his red eyes. Even if I had, it wouldn't have changed what happened next. He was like I am now. He bit me. Drank from me. I don't know why he stopped, why he didn't just kill me. But regardless, he chose to make me like him, sparring my life, but condemning my soul. You see, our venom when we bite someone is like a toxin that poisons our victim's body. We can either kill them, or drink enough of their blood to remove all the venom but let them live, or we can let the toxin burn in them for three days until they change and become one of us. That's what Thomas did to me. He changed me. I found out later he had just come from killing my parents. But that's another story. I didn't know what else to do or where to go. Thomas tried to explain what happened to me, tried to help me. But I wouldn't listen. He was the reason I was an orphan now. I wanted nothing to do with him. I locked myself up in that house until I couldn't take the blood lust any longer. I lied to you before. The scratches on the closet wall aren't counting my marble collection. It was counting the number of lives I took as a newborn. I killed everyone in town, even the children. Everyone who had helped my family survive the Great Depression. I just killed them. I calmed down after a few years. Thomas suggested that I enlist in the army like my father had done. Said it would be a good outlet for my bloodlust. So I did. That was January of 1942. World War II. It wasn't pretty. But Thomas was right, it was a good outlet for me, and I never killed anyone for their blood, I simply fed on those were already dead on the battlefield. I waited until now to return, because I didn't think that I was strong enough to do so until now. I didn't know if I was strong enough to revisit the place where I had slaughtered so many before finding my outlet. I didn't think that I could come back and face all of that without growing up a little more first. I still don't know if I'm completely ready. But the only way I'll ever really know is if I go inside and stand in the room where I would drag bodies after I killed them to drink them slowly, to sit in the closet and look at the marks I carved with my bare finger after each feeding. I need to revisit all of that if I'm ever going to be able to forgive myself for being this monster. I have to make sure that it never happens again, and the only way to do that is to assure myself that although I'm still a monster, I don't have to be an evil one ever again. I need to remember them. And I need you.... *turning to meet her eyes for the first time since starting his speech* [Eric] I need you, to be around you, to give me the confidence that I can be around a human without killing them. To remind me I'm not that monster. It doesn't do any good to dig up the past if I can't prove that I've changed. What better way to prove that change than to be around a human constantly and never harm her? All I want from you is your trust. Trust that I won't hurt you despite everything that you now know. If I can earn that trust, I'll know for sure that I've changed, that I'm better, that I'm not that evil monster.

(Miracle!!! :) HEY!!! It's so good to hear from you! I'm really glad you went ahead and interviewed for that position; I've got my fingers crossed that you get it! I just know you'd be great for it. I always think it's a shame when people hire externally instead of internally for a leadership position, so hopefully that doesn't happen. And I'm so glad to hear you're going to be RPing for a while!! I've got a three day weekend, and I'm all caught up on my work, so I'm all for it. I LOVED your posts, but I was thinking of skipping ahead, maybe to, like, the season premiere? That just seems like it might be a better place to leave this one off before we transition to the Coven Rule Reboot next weekend. What do you think? I could fire up a few posts now if you're up for it, or we could just continue where we left off and save the premiere for next time.)

Emmett: *sitting side by side with Rosalie on his swim-up bar, holding a glass of ice-cold scotch that matched the one that Rosalie held in hers as the California sun slowly inched towards the horizon on the beach beyond his property* You know, I've been meaning to ask you something... *unable to help but grin at the way her face lit up at his words, the brightness of her smile more than a match for the skimpy, hot pink sting bikini she'd changed into minutes before* We're filming the rest of the premiere scenes tomorrow, and it's got me thinking... Do you want to go to the premiere with me... As my date? *taking another long swig of his drink* I know it's all but going public, and I know the mess that comes along with that... We both have our own images to maintain, and in this business relationships have everything to do with everything... But, I think we both know you're more than just a casual fling to me... I respect you, and I care about you, and I'd be proud to have you on my arm in front of the world and call you my girlfriend. I understand if you're not ready for it now, but that's what I want.

Alice: Here's to a wrap on the second-to-last day of filming. *her classic, bubbly giggle floating on her lips as she nearly spilled her champagne as she and Gabriel clinked glasses* Sorry. It's been a while since I've been out on the water. It's going to take a second for me to adjust to the waves, I think. It's supposed to be like riding a bike, or so I've heard. *taking a dainty little sip of her champagne before she directed her attention to the picnic she had spread out across the deck of the boat* Okay, so, I went a little overboard—*laughing suddenly at her choice of words*—sorry. Anyways, I went a little nuts with the food. There's lamb, potatoes, bread, and of course pie. I would never forget dessert. It's my own concoction, strawberry and peach. I promise you'll love it!

It's just dinner. We've had dinner before. It's no big deal... No big deal. *whispering softly to herself to try to calm the sudden case of nerves that had overcome her* Okay... The dress fits great. I'm glad I let Alice pick it out for me. I should really go shopping with her more often... My curls look alright... Makeup, check... Stop being so nervous! Ugh, it's just that after the other night, after we almost... Not that I think he's expecting it. Jasper's not that kind of guy. I just... Oh, I feel like such a girl! Stop worrying! You made your decision... Just... Go with it. You love him. You've loved him... For a while now. It's not such a big deal to tell him, or to— *jumping out of her thoughts, and nearly out of her own skin as the doorbell rang throughout the house she'd been renting for the last several months* Coming! *calls out as she grabbed her purse as walked out of her closet in a rush, walking quickly for the four-inch heels she was wearing, but not so quickly that she would trip or be out of breath by the time she got to the door, pausing just a moment in front of it before she pulled it open* Hi. *flashing Jasper a brilliant smile as she took in his dashing appearance* So... Where are we going tonight, Mr. It's-a-Surprise? *finding that all her anxiety was suddenly leeched from her as she took his hand to walk down the steps*

Rosalie: *admiring the way that the final rays of the day's light reflected off Emmett's smooth, sculpted chest, a chest she had come to know very well over their time working on set together and hooking up after the day's filming. Really, she was so familiar with his body at this point that it was hard to believe how much she was still marveled by it every time he took his shirt off. Unconsciously biting her lip as Emmett extended his invitation to join him at the premier event as his date. The event was scheduled to celebrate the end of filming for season one as well as kick off the live showing of the first episode. Many members of the cast and crew had even agreed to tweet their personal comments during the show. There would be other events as the season continued to air on TV in which they would be expected to participate, including another big event during the season's finale episode. The station had decided to air the first ten episodes without a break, then pause for eight weeks before airing the final ten episodes. That would place the finale episode airing sometime in early April. She wondered briefly if she would still be dating Emmett then. Should she really risk announcing to world that they were together during the premier only to have it all fall apart by the finale? Taking a sip of her drink to buy herself some time as she concentrated on Emmett was really asking her and what he was telling her about his long term plans and deeply searching his eyes with her own piercing gaze, hoping to find some kind of truth in them staring back at her, finally letting out a breath and giving him the answer he desired with a small nod of her head* Yeah. Yes, I think I would really like to attend the premier with you. Thankfully, most of the media attention will stay will stay on Robyn and Jasper as the leads. They may not even pick up on the fact that we're coming out as a "couple". They may just think you're my natural escort because of the bond our characters share later in the season. Don't get me wrong. You are more than that to me. So much more. I can't even describe it. I've had guys notice me before of course. Comes with the territory of being a model. And everyone remembers the incident from a few years ago. I haven't even been able to look at a man since then until you came along. It just feels right with you. I want you to be my boyfriend. In every sense of the word. And I want the world to know it. So, yes, Emmett, I'll go with you to the premier, and to every party after that. I want to be the only girl seen hanging off your arm for a very long time. *maybe it was the scotch talking, or maybe she was just caught up in the moment, but for whatever reason, she was deciding to take a chance, a chance that she would never be able to take again, and one that she prayed wouldn't come back to bite her in the neck*

It all looks so delicious, I don't even know where to start. *taking a moment to fill up his plate before sampling a bite of the potatoes* Mmmm, even better than they look. *the pace of his eating picking up with each delectable bite* Oh my goodness, I can't remember the last time I had some real home cooked food like this. It's always just whatever the supermarket has on sale in the freezer section for me. But this, this is incredible. *pointing at the food on his plate for emphasis* Oh, you were going to tell me what color your dress is for the premier so I can get you a corsage to match. Better let me know soon before it's too late to get one ordered.

Emmett: Your wish is my command, Rosie. *grinning as he used the nickname he'd taken to calling her, especially in moments like these, when it was just the two of them, as close as they were, wading in the lukewarm water of his pool, almost touching elbows* I really mean it, you know that, don't you? *seriously, as he set his drink aside, abandoning it on the bar so that he could inch that much closer to her, wrapping his arms around her and secretly taking pride in the way she shivered at his touch* I know I don't always think, sometime I like to jump into things head-on... But, I've thought about this. I've thought about us. I don't want to hide you, like I'm ashamed of you. The man who has you... He should be proud of it. You deserve to be shown off. You deserve to have the man who loves you shout it from the rooftops. *leaning his face down towards her, capturing her lips with hers before she could call him on what he'd just revealed* I want everyone to know you're mine. I want men to look at you and know they could never, ever make you as happy as I do. *kissing her again, deeply, guiding her to sit up on the bar so her legs could easily hang around his waist, his hands gliding up and down the smooth, waxed surfaces of each, hugging every curve as he explored her mouth; he'd thoroughly explored every inch of her body more than once before, but he always felt as if he couldn't get enough; to him, Rosalie was unlike any of the other beautiful women he'd been with, she was special, and his appetite for her was completely insatiable* God, I love your legs. *his fingers inching up further and further towards the apex of her thighs as his lips began to trail down her neck, giving her a chance to breathe* I love all of you. *not even realizing that he'd said the words out loud as he kissed around the strings of her bikini teasingly; after all he was drunk on lust and three glasses of scotch in*

Jasper: *flashing Robyn a toothy grin as she opened the door to greet him* You can't wait just a few more minutes and see when we get there? I have never known a more impatient girl before. *intentionally not spoiling their secret dinner date destination* You look wonderful by the way. I love that color on you. It really makes your eyes stand out. *then again, he would probably love her in anything she wore, and he'd always be eager to get her out of it. Not that he would ever force her before she was ready, and not that he actually expected that fantasy to come true any time soon, but a guy could hope, and hope he did, all the time, but always keeping her wishes at the forefront of his hoping and vowing never to make a move until he was absolutely sure that she was ready for it* I talked to Bayleigh earlier. She wants to know when you're going to come see her again. I told her that it probably wouldn't be until after the premier. She was disappointed, but she understands. Talking to you really has helped her through a couple of rough patches. I can't thank you enough for doing that. It's so much better to have a woman she can talk to instead of only having me. I wouldn't have even been able to begin to know what to say to her like you did. You know, when she was younger, she couldn't wait to give me a big giant hug every time she saw me, but since the whole business with Ralph went down, she won't get any closer than five feet from me. I know you said it would take time for her to trust men again, but it's amazing that she'll talk to me at all.

Alice: *blushing bashfully as he complemented the food, savoring a bite of cherry-glazed lamb herself* Thank you. Although, I can't say I'm surprised a home-cooked meal beats out Lean Cuisine. You know, I could teach you a few things, sometime, if you wanted. I know I would have been completely helpless in the kitchen if it hadn't been for my mother. Of course, the recipe for my strawberry peach pie is off the table, but I don't mind teaching you the basics. You would be surprised how much you can do, knowing just a few things. *taking a bite of everything else on her plate, albeit at a much more even, well-mannered pace that Gabriel did—not that she minded his enthusiasm at all. In fact, it was endearing* By the way, do save room for the pie—it really is the best part. *putting down her fork to take another sip of her champagne* Sorry about making you wait on that. I'm prone to changing my mind at the last minute; that's why I didn't tell you before. I was thinking I was going to wear a chartreuse one for a moment there, but green isn't really my color, and it's fall, so I shouldn't really be wearing pastels anyways. *smiling apologetically as she realized she was rambling* I've decided on a violet one. It's season appropriate, and suits me very well, if I do say so myself. Are you excited? I mean, I know you're near the cameras during most the filming, so you've seen a lot already, but we both know everything is so different after it's gone through post-production.

She took great pride in the way her body looked and adored the fact that she could use it to her advantage so easily, then again, right now, there was only one man she wanted to entrap with her looks, and he was the one currently ravishing her whole body with his touches and kisses, moaning in pleasure as his teeth gently scrapped over her neck and shoulders* Oh, Em. *sobering just a little as she caught the hasty words he had spoken in his moment of passion* Em. I.... *catching his gaze for just a few seconds in all seriousness* I love you, too, Emmett. All of you. I wouldn't trade this for the world. *knowing that once the words were out there, she could never get them back* Oh, goodness, what if he didn't really mean it? What if it just slipped out? What if his idea of loving someone doesn't match up with mine? I'm giving him my whole heart in addition to my body with those simple words. What if he just tosses it aside to drown in the pool? *plunging ahead before she could regret the words too much, kissing over his shoulder and up his neck to his lips, and slipping her tongue inside his mouth to explore it, her hands tightly gripping his hips, running back and forth across the top of his swim trunks.*

Robyn: Of course I'm impatient! I've been waiting all day, trying to figure out what you have planned. I hate not knowing things. It makes me crazy. *smiling indulgently as she allowed him to change the topic of conversation, accepting the fact that he didn't plan on giving away his plans, despite all the prodding she'd done* Thank you. You look very dashing yourself. I love red on you. *allowing her fingers to touch his standout tie for a long, lingering moment before they began to head out towards his car* You don't have to thank me for that. I told you, I'm more than happy to help. I mean... She's been through something really difficult, more difficult than anything I've ever been through. I mean, I know I'm not in the peace corps, I'm not the president, I'm an actress, I'm probably not going to end up changing the world—but I still care. And when I heard about what happened to Bayleigh... I just felt like I had to do everything I could. And talking to her... It's easy. Honestly, I got lucky. Bayleigh decided to trust me. Just like she tries to trust you... It's probably something she's going to work on her whole life. But, she's a strong girl. She'll be okay. One day. Maybe not the same... But better. *pausing a beat* If she was a little older, I would have invited her to go to the premiere with us, but it's not really age appropriate. And I don't think she'd like being in the center of attention, anyways. *shaking her head a little* Anyways, I think it's really good that you try to reach out to her. She needs that. She needs to be reminded that all men aren't like her father. *sliding into the car when he opened the door for her* You're really good with her, better than you think. I think you'll make a great father, one day. *feeling her heart skip a beat as she said the words casually, unwittingly imagining what Jasper would look like bouncing a little baby on his lap*

What kind of color is that? Oh, goodness, why couldn't she have said something simple like white or yellow? I'll have to look up the color online before I can even begin to know what would coordinate with it. Why does this have to be so complicated? Oh, wait, she said violet! Now violet is a color I know. I can work with that. It's a light purple, so a dark purple or even a white corsage would be perfect! *offering her an encouraging smile as he reached for his own champagne glass to wash down the last of his food with* It's quite alright. I understand. Guys always have had it slightly easier than girls when it comes to clothing selection. We basically just have to decide black, white, brown, navy blue, or grey suit with a random selected tie. *smiling a little as he let the main part of the meal settle while he waited for Alice to finish her own plate so they could dig into the promising looking pie together* Oh, yeah, of course I'm excited. I did most of the initial prop work for the premier so I want to make sure it all comes across flawlessly. I think more than how it was put together in post production, I'm eager to see how viewers who know nothing about it respond to it, if it's believable to them, entertaining, if they think they want to see more, if they approve of the set dressing and lighting and soundtrack choices. I had to fly to Canada with the sound director and meet personally with the band who recorded the song playing at the end so they'd give us the rights to use it in the episode. The guys were all really nice and after the visit they said we could use whatever songs we wanted to that they've recorded in future episodes as long as they get the credit for it, and royalties added in of course. It's actually a first for the band, no one else has ever been able to get the rights to use a Whosamawhatsits song in a TV series before.

Jasper: *easily pulling into the flow of traffic on the freeway. It wasn't often that he had the chance to drive himself, but he'd given his new limo driver the night off and decided to take out his Mustang Fastback GT Premium instead. In spite of mostly just being a passenger, however, his driving skills were rather remarkable. It came naturally to him, even in the unpredictable, hectic LA traffic.* Father? *his voice cracking a little bit on the word* I don't know if I'm ready for that. I mean, maybe, someday, maybe. I don't know. But that day is a long, long time in the future. I mean, you can't honestly tell me you're any where close to being ready to be a mother. People our age just don't have babies. That's coming a little later in life now. You have to live a little first. Find out who you are before you can raise another human being. I mean, if you want to be a mom someday, then I sincerely hope that you find the right guy to be the father, a guy who will love your kids as much as I'm sure you will. But just don't be in too much of a hurry. *his words coming out in a rushed kind of panic as he second guesses everything spilling out of his mouth* Oh, no, I hope she doesn't think I just implied that we'll be having kids together someday. Although, someday I do hope to be her husband, I just don't want to imply that too soon, I can't afford to rush her here. What if she thinks the opposite, what if she thinks that I'm backing out or backing down from any kind of relationship if she wants kids and I don't? What if...? What if...? Oh, great, Whitlock, you've really put your foot in your mouth this time. Say something, say something, anything, straighten this out before it's too late! Get a grip man, you don't know what she's thinking. She's probably just as nervous and awkward feeling as you are when it comes to this topic.
