She has a heap of older brothers.
Hope can bake really well and gets mad when others don't meet her standards. Hope was practically molested in the back of a bar in Atlanta (her where she’s from) three years ago. She’s still not very good with physical contact of the kind.
Hope's favorite color is blue.
Hope is a very sweet and diligent Southern girl, with pretty prim and proper mannerisms but she can be a tad overzealous with her dedication to further the greater good of Prima Dorm.
Hope's got blonde hair and blue eyes and is compulsively neat and tidy.
Hope loves watching Something Damaged. She likes Matthew and Candice.
She is super sweet but can rope down a bull. Southern girls are not to be messed with.
For National Brothers Week, all Hope's big brothers came around.
Hope is an amazing cook, and the girls say her food is always good.
On Mothers Day
I went home for Mother’s Day. :) I gave my mom a day off, I did all the cleaning, the washing, the mending, feeding the livestock and cooking and I fixed a big dinner for the family. :) And a nice dress, my mom looks really nice in blue.
For my dad, I spent the whole day with him helping out in the chores, and played ball with him some, went horseback riding and I got him tickets to this big football game that he’d wanted to go to. :)
All boys and some girls had a jousting competition. Hope didn't joust, but she did sit in the stands to watch. She wore a pale blue dress, and was nervous about Charlie and the others. She didn't want them getting too hurt. Charlie won the round and got a kiss from Hope before going back to Windsor side. When Wes and Derek were up to joust, Tabitha began sobbing, saying how hard it was to watch them fight over her. Dobry was all glaring at her and Casey cracked her knuckles.
Mika was telling Casey to calm down and chill. Tabitha was still sobbing, saying, "I mean...Wes and I loved each other so much but now there's Derek, and..." Casey kept glaring but when Tabitha said, "It's just so hard to be so popular, you know?" Casey yelled, "THAT'S IT. MIKA, HOLD MY SHIT." and Prima had to hold her back. Casey leapt at Tabitha and they got in a catfight. Derek wanted to let them keep going cause they were about to rip their dresses. They were tumbling down the bleachers while fighting.
Hope was watching patiently. Sydney was betting on Casey. Wes said, "I hope they hit that mud puddle right there." Andrea and Adriana said they wouldn't be stopping the fight any time soon. Casey was ripping her hair extensions and fake nails out. Casey lost a dress strap. Hope then asked the boys for a rope, and Wes handed one up. She lasooed Casey and dragged her up and told her that was enough. Casey screamed that she wasn't done, but Hope commented, "Honey, you've gone and ripped out two hair extensions and broken four of her fake nails, you're done." Tabitha was being restrained by the Banshees.
Hope said it looked like Tabitha was run over by a tractor, and Casey asked if that was before or after she got to her. Tabitha screamed that Derek loved her, and Derek winced. Casey then struggled more in the ropes but Hope didn't let her go. Hope promised she'd let her go later and even help her. The boys all then agreed that that was the best fight, nothing could top it, and went home.
Hope graduates this year. Hope's grades are borderline insane.
Hope frets enough for everyone in the dorm. She is an extremely loyal friend and a very responsible dorm leader.
Hope’s a senior and a member of the Dobry Hall Terpsichores.
She is the Prima House leader.
Dalton and Dobry
Justin Bancroft was lurking (it had to be lurking, he seemed to dislike the "cheery" festivities and kept to the corners) in the Dalton-Dobry event, being completely disinterested. He stood with the rest of the Hanover boys, basically grumbling to himself. He saw one of the other freshmen glowering at one of the girls, and they looked like they were squabbling. Finally, the girl grabbed the boy's tie and yanked it far up his neck, making him choke, commanded him to stay there and strode off to the buffet.
Justin snorted and told the other freshman boy that his girlfriend must be a pain. To which Spencer Willis replied that the "pain" was his twin sister, Sydney. Rough, Justin told him, and Spencer just rolled his eyes saying that it was like having his mother around fussing about his uniform. Sydney returned and shoved a cup of punch at her brother's hands and raised an eyebrow at Justin and asked who he was. Justin told her exactly who he was.
Sydney was completely unfazed and reported to him exactly who -she- was. That was when Hope and Charlie arrived into the event. Hope made a beeline for her friend from Royal House, clung onto Sydney's arm and giggled. Charlie rolled his eyes and stood with Justin and complained about the festivities. Hope thinks the event is pretty. Sydney thinks its boring. Spencer wants to eat, but he hates the "prim" food. Justin suggested they break the hell out and get some decent food and asked if there was any place that had fish and chips around.
Charlie said that there was a burger joint not far. Sydney disapproved of escaping. Spencer told her that if she wanted to be boring, she could stay. Justin just shrugged and said he didn't think of her as the "salad" type. Charlie laughed at that. Sydney glared and said she wasn't and that she bet she ate more than he did. Hope said a soda would be nice. So Charlie lit a firecracker and tossed it behind the buffet table. Sydney was furious. Spencer laughed. The firecracker exploded. Everyone went nuts. The five of them escaped.
Hope says that Charlie just feels right to her and the relationship feels right. Charlie first asked Hope out by doing it the Windsor way. In this case, he used the “flood her room” method and I think it was just lucky that Hope even FOUND the stuffed bear that had the “Will you go out with me” message on it. She liked it so much she refused to shut up about it. Everyone in Prima kept giving her things to eat so she would stop talking about it. The Double-A’s actually did the task for Charlie.
Charlie sends Hope a text good morning every morning before going out to a morning jog.
Hope goes over to Dalton every Wednesday to bring Charlie a basket of treats for after his varsity practice.
Charlie can sing a bit, and once him and Hope sang "Give In To Me' from Country Strong once. David said they were very good together.
Charlie went to see Hope, and the girls were having pillow fights in their underwear. He was convinced he got into some kind of accident on the way and he was actually in nirvana. He walked into a door.
How Charlie and Hope Met
It was Chaz’ freshman year, and he had his first look at what a Dalton-Dobry event looked like. The girls trooped in, and the older boys looked pretty thrilled about it. Everyone headed to the event, but Chaz wasn’t interested. Chaz met the freshman named Hope by the fountain, all alone.
She was fretting and looked worried, looking into the water. He asked her if she was okay, and she said she was trying to polish her Prima badge and it fell into the fountain. She couldn’t find it and she wasn’t sure if the water was clean and didn’t want to wade in Chaz just laughed, saying she could always get another badge.
But Hope just said that badges were important because they were gifted to you, they represented your dorm family, and it was all in all a pretty sanctimonious speech and Chaz thought she was crazy. Hope just frowned at him and finally tried to convince herself that the only way she was going to get it back was if she went into the water.
She was halfway through taking her socks off when Chaz finally told her to stop, rolled his eyes, and went into the water, uniform and all. After a minute or two, he stubbed his toe on the badge, and gave it back to Hope begrudgingly, telling her not to lose the silly thing again. Hope just smiled and was very happy and thanked him.
On Their Relationship
Well, I think Hope has always had a thing for Chaz. But she was really the type of girl to not let it show. Very self-contained, that one. After the time they first met, Chaz saw Hope as one of the few female friends he had in Dobry Hall. She was sensible and level-headed—and was so incorruptibly cheerful and optimistic that it was something of a marvel to him.
I suppose he saw her as a stable thing in his life, and they really talked a lot and got along well. As for Hope, she saw Chaz as the one who’s only a bad boy on the outside—and that he was really a nice guy if you got down to it. :)
