welcome to a jinsley au got/hotd production!
witness what happens when one of jinsley is bored with nothing to do and all the muses in the world! and as a result drags the other half of this lovely duo into the mess!~ love you, love! but this is also your fault!<3

welcome to a modern retelling of our lovely targaryen twins! if you are not aware of our original got/hotd babies, please take a gander here! we promise these modern babies will be just as feels inducing as our firey prince and princess—if maybe not a little more fluffier. and if you're wondering why there seems to be so much effort in this thread compared to the original one...remember when i said that this was born from boredom and nothing to do? yeah, i was bored with nothing to do while i waited for my lovely partner to finish posts. so please enjoy my poor decisions and lack of patience and self-control that my wonderful partner is more than happy to support.

some key details to be noted: high valyrian is canon in this au. we have equated it to an accessible version of latin. it's a "living" language that can be taught in schools (although not available in ALL schools). unfortunately, dragons do not exist. le sighhhhhh. for the sake of the language, valyria still exists. the existence of other families that are mentioned in asoiaf is currently tbd. for now, all we know is that the families from old valyria exist in this world and, no, they are not closely related to one another.

lastly, shoutout to duolingo for adding high valyrian and further fueling all of my modern muses xD

▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆▆ * ( ALL ABOUT ME ) x x
»;█ ( FACT OO1 ) tab Visaera was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland up until she was five. Her family comes from a long line of entrepreneurs with all of their wealth coming from the seafood industry. Celtigar, Inc. is the largest company in the country most known for the import and export of blue crab. Many who visit Baltimore will spend long hours and a lot of money for a table at House of Celtigar just to try their specialty blue crab dishes. Her family is a particularly big one. Her father is the second youngest of five children. Although it is expected that his eldest brother—the first born son—will take over the business once his father steps down and retires, he still inherited the family’s knack for business. Finishing top of the class with honors at Yale, he climbed up quickly in the business world; rising through the ranks at a near exponential rate. His expertise and overall work ethic earned him an executive position at Celtigar, Inc.’s west coast office, requiring him to move his wife and daughter to Berkeley, California.
»;█ ( FACT OO2 ) tab Before being a wife and mother, Visaera's mother had dreams and aspirations of being a principal ballerina. She also reached that goal, until a life altering injury prevented her from continuing with dance. So instead, she took all of her dance knowledge to NYU with the intention of becoming a dance instructor. That was where she met Visaera's father. He was in the masters program and was her TA for one of her business courses. They scandalously hit it off pretty quick. In-between classes, she was a private ballet instructor. Her students were the children of families closely associated with the Celtigars. She moved up to an instructor position in a dance academy after she and Visaera's father got married. When they all moved to California, she took a leap of faith to open her own dance studio.
»;█ ( FACT OO3 ) tab It was a bit of a shock to Visaera’s parents when they learned that the Celtigars opposed her name. After all, Visaera has Valyrian origins. But for the Celtigars, so many years attached from their home country and heavily business oriented, they thought her name too “exotic.” They worried that her “unique” name would close one too many doors; not even accounting for the fact that she is a member of the Celtigar family. But despite all the arguments, Visaera’s mother fought for her name. When Visaera was old enough to understand the politics behind her family, she was told her mother went straight to her grandfather and said, “I won’t argue against whatever wishes you may have for my daughter, except that I will have her named Visaera whether you like it or not.” Many back and forth arguments later, Visaera’s grandparents relented. To soften the blow of this defeat, her parents decided to give her a second first name that she can use for future opportunities. And since her mother chose her first first name, her father got to choose her second first name. He chose Josephine after his grandmother. For years, various family members have asked her mother why she desperately wanted to name her daughter Visaera, but for some reason, she has kept that a close lipped secret. The only response she ever gives anyone that asks is that she just thought the name was very pretty.
»;█ ( FACT OO4 ) tab Visaera is fluent in High Valyrian. Although she is Valyrian through her father's family, it was her mother—who isn't Valyrian—that insisted and encouraged her to learn and perfect it. Her father unfortunately was not part of this learning process, at least not actively. He is many generations removed from the motherland; their branch of the Celtigar family tree having emigrated long ago. He knows a few words and phrases, but is unable to hold a coherent conversation. Her mother, on the other hand, learned High Valyrian when she was in high school and while she isn't fluent, she is conversational. In fact, it can be argued that High Valyrian was Visaera's first language. Her mother spoke it to her exclusively when they were at home and she has been told that her first word was Muña—her father was a little disappointed it wasn't "Dada" or anything related, but still proud. Once she started speaking, her father hired a private language instructor to help her differentiate between High Valyrian and English. It was adorable at home, but her parents would rather she didn't mix the two languages in one sentence once she started school. At home, it isn't uncommon to find Visaera and her mother speaking exclusively in High Valyrian whenever her father isn't home.
»;█ ( FACT OO5 ) tab Visaera is very close to her parents. Not exactly that she tells them about every aspect of her life, but there is a trust between her and them that does not exist among her friends and their parents. She idolizes her mother and it can be argued that their relationship is one that surpasses just mother-daughter. Visaera is not afraid to say that her mother is one of her best friends. For as long as she can even remember, they have shared such a deep connection to one another; especially her mother. She can somehow pick up on whatever Visaera is feeling, if she needed to put in the effort to channel it. It is a running theory that this close relationship started because Visaera was born prematurely AND her mother had been struggling to conceive for years. For years, she was told how her mother stayed at her side in NICU for weeks until she was fit to leave the hospital and then took time off from running her studio to take care of her even though her in-laws recommended hiring a nanny. Her mother couldn't do it, not after struggling to have a baby for years and then almost losing the one that made it. As for her father, well, even if her mother is one of her best friends, she is without a doubt Daddy's Little Girl. He unapologetically spoiled her rotten when she was a kid, but also made sure that it didn't get too into her head growing up. She looks up to her father and is never afraid to seek out his guidance. And even though he can be very busy with work, he still finds time to spend with her whenever he gets the opportunity to get away from the office.
»;█ ( FACT OO6 ) tab Despite her close relationship with her parents, Visaera is not immune to the high expectations that come with being a Celtigar. For as long as she can remember, she has never not been busy. As soon as she was mobile, she was taken on play dates with the children from other families closely associated with hers. In fact, a lot of her friends now are those she has been with since they were babies. When she was a toddler, her parents enrolled her in various classes. Her mother, naturally, placed her in different dance classes to see if any of them would stick. She stayed in ballet and contemporary dance until middle school. She also participated in sports starting in elementary school. It wasn't competitive, but it gave her something to do after school. She enjoyed soccer for a while, but then her father took her to her first horseback riding lesson and she never looked back. She competed for years until her junior year of high school. Of all of the private lessons she took her whole life, what stuck the most until this very day was music. Like most children of her station, she started with piano. From there, once her music instructor picked up on her talent, she expanded to guitar (but this is mostly for fun) and took up singing lessons. She still competes and participates in piano recitals. But recently she has considered stepping away from recitals to focus on songwriting. It's a lowkey passion of hers, but she is not confident enough to share any songs she's attempted writing. Now, despite all of these activities keeping her occupied for nearly her entire life, what matters most to her family—meaning her extended Celtigar family—are her school activities. She has been active in her high school's Key Club since her freshman year and will be taking the VP position her senior year. Other clubs and activities she is involved in at school include: NHS, Best Buddies, and a couple other volunteer-based clubs. There are a small handful of special interest clubs that she is active in on and off depending on her schedule.
»;█ ( FACT OO7 ) tab The thing you need to know about the Celtgars is that they very much still believe in arranged marriages. Of course, with the "changing of the times" they have to be clever about it. They are a little more lenient, but that is putting it lightly. There are some occasions when it is very obvious that a marriage in the Celtigar family is arranged (i.e. when it pertains to the heir to the family business and legacy). But for the rest of the time, the family goes around the obvious definition of arranged marriages. Instead, they call it "childhood friendships." Visaera is in that category. While her parents were lucky to be a love match—it helps that her mother did come from a "good family"—Visaera was one of the many grandchildren to be strategically paired with one of the children of the various families in connection with the Celtigars. It all started when her father received his promotion to overlook the business in the west coast. The Tyrells accumulated much of their wealth from their grocery store chain all across the west coast region. They also own many acres of farmland and vineyards. And it just so happens that Visaera's father and the heir to the Tyrell family business were friends and classmates at Yale. But that is not the connection the Celtigars are invested in. It is the one between Visaera and the CEO's son, Deric. She met Deric when she was five years old, he was seven. For the most part, Visaera can't remember her life without Deric in it. Between weekly play dates until they started middle school and being enrolled in the same schools since she finished kindergarten, it was hard to look at Visaera and not think about Deric. Visaera does consider Deric a close friend. She always has fun when with him and he has helped her survive many years of school with his extra two years of knowledge. It was around her sophomore year and his senior year that they started to acknowledge that after all these years, they might actually have feelings for each other. However, it was also one of those bad timing situations. Deric was under a lot of pressure to get into Yale. While, yes, his own academic record was enough merit to get him in, it wasn't going to be enough until he received that acceptance letter. So they never tried dating. To the school, they viewed Visaera and Deric's relationship that year as "casual." It was obvious they liked each other, but school just came first. It wasn't until the summer after Deric graduated that they finally put some definition to their relationship. They both agreed that long distance wasn't going to work. Visaera was going into the toughest years of high school and Deric was starting his college career in Yale. So they continued to keep things casual, but they also made a promise to each other. Once Visaera finished high school—and hopefully also got into Yale—they would make their relationship official. For the Celtigars, that was essentially a shoe in for an engagement.
»;█ ( FACT OO8 ) tab Maybe this has everything to do with the fact that she is a Celtigar, but Visaera loves seafood. She will proudly and unapologetically eat at her family's restaurant—the closest location is in San Francisco—and sing its praises every time. She also has a constantly insatiable craving for sushi. It is one of those cravings that once someone asks her if she wants it, she will always say yes with a quickness.
»;█ ( FACT OO9 ) tab Her preferred choice of transportation is her bike, but this is mostly because she tries to stay as local as possible. If she needs to go any further than Berkeley, she will either take Bart, pay for an Uber or get a ride from someone she knows. Unfortunately, she cannot drive. This has everything to do with her height, or lack thereof to be more precise. Her inability to easily see over the wheel has been the cause of much anxiety for Visaera. So while she does possess a permit, she has yet to pluck up the courage to take the test to get her license. So for the time being, she gets around the neighborhood pretty well on her bike or she gets rides from her friends or her parents. #THATPPPLIFE
»;█ ( FACT O1O ) tab It has been engrained in her mind since she was a baby that Yale was her top long term goal. Many photo albums show Visaera surrounded by the Yale colors, whether it is a baby onesie or the blue flag that has been hanging over her bed since she was still sleeping in a crib. It's pretty obvious where this goal arose from. As his alma mater, her father dreamed for her to follow in his footsteps. Every year since she first learned how to read, they would take trips to Connecticut to visit the campus the week before she started the new school year. She's gone to plenty homecoming games with her father, his school friends and their kids. To her and her father, everything she does up until her high school diploma is placed in her hand is for Yale. Not even an acceptance letter will satisfy her father. To him, their goal for Yale is fulfilled once she has stepped foot on the campus as an official student. But see, here is the thing. At some point during her high school career, Visaera has lost sight of that goal. While she still believes Yale is an amazing school, she's started to recognize that it isn't the right fit for her. She no longer "sees" herself walking across campus every day to get from one class to another. There is no more excitement even talking about Yale. In fact, the only excitement she feels is whatever she picks up from her father. Unfortunately, it is that very reason she has yet to tell him that Yale is no longer a long term goal of hers. For now, she intends to still apply, but will also exert the same amount of energy into applying to other universities. She has yet to find the actual school that best fits her, but she hopes it will present itself once it is application time.
»;█ ( FACT O11 ) tab She has a unique interest in flying. Anytime she travels and it requires flying to the destination, she will always aim for a window seat and that window will stay open the entire flight (so long as she is allowed to). There is something so majestic about being able to see the world from the skies that has always intrigued her and it always takes her breath away. This only worsened when she and her childhood friends went paragliding once during summer vacation. She was addicted to the sensation of being in the air. It is now one of her dreams to go paragliding once again (maybe even hang gliding) AND to try skydiving.
»;█ ( FACT O12 ) tab A lot of people in Visaera's life—even her own family—have made comment on her busy schedule. Some have voiced concerns that between her classes (both at her school and the college courses she can take at the community college) and her extracurriculars she is well on her way to burning out before college. But the truth is, despite the sheer exhaustion she may feel sometimes, Visaera leans heavily on her busy schedule. She uses her busy schedule as a defense mechanism. She dislikes being idle with very little to nothing to do. For, you see, the moments when it is quiet for Visaera is when the intrusive thoughts invade. This is the one thing she insists on keeping secret from her parents and her friends. It's hard to say when exactly she started struggling with these dark thoughts, but when she first acknowledged that they were there, it hit her like a truck and for a few days she was unable to do anything outside her bedroom. After that day, she learned that keeping herself busy pushes away any chance of these thoughts getting any kind of strength. But the few times that they do slip through her mind, instant guilt pours through her. After all, what reason does she have to feel these things when her entire life has been so fortunate? So to combat the impending destruction, she works herself to almost complete exhaustion so that she could go to bed and sleep immediately.
»;█ ( FACT O13 ) tab Visaera has an immaculate way with words. Throughout high school, many in the debate team have grieved that she has little time to commit to joining. She isn't entirely argumentative, unless she has to be for a class assignment, but Visaera has this way of picking up on details from other people to help hook them in to whatever she has to say. Some say she is empathetic, but she disagrees. It is more so the ability to pick up on nonverbal cues. Once she has that, she maneuvers her arguments or pitches to best attract her listener.
»;█ ( FACT O14 ) tab As much as the Celtigars like to play it off to the public that they are a close knit family, Visaera is not close to any of her relatives. Every year they travel to Baltimore, conversations with cousins are typically bragging contests. One cousin will brag about getting into this Ivy League. Another will talk for ages about a prestigious internship they snagged. Another will go into great lengths about the journey they took to win some award. And it doesn't stop with the cousins. She has often overheard her parents get into near sparring matches with uncles and aunts over which child is the most successful. And with her father being one of the youngest siblings, he dives in fiercely to brag about all of her accomplishments. Now that she is older, taking trips back to Baltimore has become more a chore for her than a pleasure.
»;█ ( FACT O15 ) tab Whenever she can find any kind of spare time, Visaera enjoys checking out thrift stores and used bookstores. And she will always come out with something. She is a little embarrassed of how full her closet is with clothes she has yet to wear and bookshelves full of books she has yet to read. More often than not, she will end up donating some of the clothes she's bought at thrift stores without even having worn them. But she still finds herself going to them and always coming out with something that caught her attention. But she can find herself browsing for hours if she didn't have to keep track of time.
»;█ ( FACT O16 ) tab For much of Visaera's high school career, she has been dubbed the "princess" of the school solely for her volunteer efforts and overall academic record. While she may not necessarily be in the running for valedictorian, she is more known for offering to schedule study sessions for classmates that might need a little extra help on homework. Then there is her many hours of volunteer work between multiple clubs. Every year Visaera is acknowledged for her involvement in the community through her volunteer work. In the beginning, calling Visaera "princess" was a playful tease among her friends. However, it very quickly spread and stuck. Visaera for her part doesn't mind the title, but she also doesn't encourage it. She just simply smiles and lets people have their fun.
»;█ ( FACT O17 ) tab After volunteering for a semester at a senior living facility in her junior year, Visaera picked up on what her friends affectionately call "old lady hobbies." In other words, she got really into crafting; more specifically crochet. Now, keep in mind that this is still a fairly new hobby so she is nowhere near great at it. In fact, her need to perfect her lines is the reason she makes weekly visits to the senior living facility because she befriended a couple of the ladies who helped her develop this hobby. She doesn't crochet all the time, but occasionally you can find her in class with a hook and some brightly colored yarn in her hands. Oh, and don't get her started on her yarn collection. Yeah, it is basically a collection. Despite it taking long to complete projects, Visaera has a bad habit of coming out of craft stores with more yarn than she can get through. So now her room has baskets full of yarn for any new projects she has in mind.

»;█ ( FACT OO1 ) tab virys does not believe in love. in any capacity of the word: romantic relationships, sexual relationships, even familial relationships. the word “love” means nothing to him. he believes it’s more along the lines of a fake courtesy. but this is due to having never experienced it himself. his own mother wanted nothing to do with him. his father claimed to love him yet dumped him on the doorstep of his first marriage; clearly love isn’t real if his father started a second family—a second family that didn’t turn out to be much better than his first. his “stepmother” has never cared for him and his half siblings have turned home into hell for him. girls at school have only ever wanted him for sex, status or money—boys too. virys has never felt love and so clearly it doesn’t actually exist. love is the biggest conspiracy theory of the entire world.
»;█ ( FACT OO2 ) tab in addition to his strong reservation against emotional love, virys has trouble with sexual intimacy. that is to say, most things that turn on other boys his age don’t work on him. and they never have. believing that something was wrong with him, virys projected this sexual persona for several years until it became a large portion of his identity. he became obsessed with sex, wanting desperately to figure out why he was different and thinking that he could fix himself. that maybe if he could be normal that the rest of the broken pieces of his life might come back together. presently he’s fallen so far down the rabbit hole that it’s out of his control. he’s slept with enough people(cis girls mostly but not exclusively), to have earned him a manwhore reputation. yet at the same time his dissatisfied sex life has kept his standards high enough that he’s far from easy. he won’t sleep with just anyone, in fact these days he’s mostly only sexually active with his friend and drug dealer, madison harper.
»;█ ( FACT OO3 ) tab drugs were always a part of virys’ life. he was born to a rockstar father, passed along to an ex-groupie “stepmother”, and then raised among siblings several years older than him. he was exposed to the good, the bad and desensitized to the ugly earlier than most. and so it was only natural for him to pick up his own habits. virys has tried his share of party drugs and alcohol, most of it due to peer pressure from his older half brothers. and it was actually through them that he met madison—madi. but virys generally isn’t one for hard drugs, he prefers to just smoke. it helps ease his anxiety and relax in a world that has been out to get him since he was born.
»;█ ( FACT OO4 ) tab as you have probably guessed, following the stereotype, school is not virys’ strong suit. it’s not that he’s dumb, far from it actually. but he simply doesn’t care enough and his grades suffer for it. he is actually quite clever and quick to pick up on things, but skipping class to get high and blatantly not doing the work has left a large discrepancy between him and his classmates. as such he’s been balancing on the verge of failing out of school and his academic future is bleak.
»;█ ( FACT OO5 ) tab luckily for him, his interest in music, combined with his father’s fame, doesn’t require a degree for success. though it wouldn’t hurt to help combat the rumors and bad rap he’s accumulated over the years. virys has long been in a back and forth battle with himself over whether or not he truly wants to pursue music. it’s something he genuinely enjoys, and has the natural talent for. but at times he feels as though he is stuck in his father’s shadow and that his own demons will forever hold him back. there’s nothing quite as discouraging as being compared to another and told you’re not good enough solely on someone’s first impression of you. and that has happened so many times to virys, and it’s been steadily eating away at his self esteem and drive, leaving him unmotivated and depressed in regards to the one thing in life he truly enjoys.
»;█ ( FACT OO6 ) tab another less known talent of his is his knowledge of high valyrian. while not fluent, it is technically his first language and he’s at least conversational in it. he doesn’t know the grammatical terms for things (prepositions and adverbs—what?), has a hard time formulating sentences, and is much better at understanding others than speaking it himself. but he thought it would be an easy a to take the class upon seeing it was offered in his high school, however learning it ”proper” in a school setting had proved to be much more difficult than his experience of using it at home.
»;█ ( FACT OO7 ) tab another difficulty he’s had is with therapy. he’s had a few different diagnosis over the years, with various forms of treatment recommended ranging from simple counseling to complicated regimens. however virys has never stuck through anything long enough to reap any benefits or see any improvements. instead he self medicates and everyone else in his life gets to experience the ups and downs alongside him.
»;█ ( FACT OO8 ) tab the instability isn’t a new thing though, it’s been a constant in his life even before he was born. during an early ultrasound it was revealed that he was to be a twin, but by the next appointment his other half was gone. a phenomenon known as vanishing twin syndrome; and with it went his health. he had been sharing a placenta with his twin and after they were absorbed his tiny body suffered for a while while his mother’s body recovered and adjusted. he became a high risk pregnancy from that point on and his mother was advised against traveling and to be extra careful so as to not lose her remaining child as well. however his mother’s indifference towards him had already began. she was scared that she was losing herself and her own life as now all anyone talked to her about was her baby. as such she rebelled against the doctor’s orders and did as she pleased, and it was due to her recklessness that virys ended up being born in florida of all places. his parents were there for an event when his mother went into labor. despite being so small, virys’ birth was a long and complicated one in part to his already poor health, and it was also for that reason that the family ended up staying in florida with his mother’s sister for close to two months until he was finally cleared from the nicu. he struggled as an infant and that touch and go was likely a main contributing factor to why his mother rejected him in the end. rather than going full maternal over her sick baby, she went the complete opposite direction and if anything she was scared of him. scared of how fragile he was. scared she would mess things up. scared she would be a bad mother, and then combined with the fact that she never actually wanted this in the first place. but virys was blind to her aversion until he turned ten years old when she finally cracked, feeling like she had lost the past ten years of her life to being a mother despite how little she had actually been involved in his upbringing. the solution ended up being to send little virys up north to live with his father’s first family in berkeley, who virys had never met and knew next to nothing about.
»;█ ( FACT OO9 ) tab virys flew as an unaccompanied minor at ten years old, leaving his family behind to go live with complete strangers who wanted almost as little to do with him as his own mother. he went from being an only child to being the youngest of six and the age gaps only made the transition even more difficult. and while two of his siblings ultimately warmed up to him, it wasn’t enough to offset the abuse he suffered through at the hands of the other three and his new guardian: his “stepmother”. living in berkeley has been arguably worse for virys than los angeles was and his steady downward spiral is there to show for it. his two eldest brothers are the ones who have been the most dangerous, which, considering their large age gap definitely turns it from sibling quarrels to full on abuse. there is no reason for a nearly twenty year old adult to be smacking around a ten year old child as a means of stress relief and entertainment. his two half sisters were second oldest, both just a year apart from one another. but the close proximity of their ages did little to strengthen their own bond. one sister sided more so with their brothers, while the other took virys under her wing as best she could. he hasn’t always been receptive to her kindness, but she remains a constant support—the closest to a mother figure he’s ever had. his last brother is the closest in age to him and has arguably made the most efforts as far as bonding with virys. it’s not quite a two way street between them, his brother definitely tries harder and cares more than virys. but of all his siblings, he is the one virys gets along with the most.
»;█ ( FACT O1O ) tab you would think that with such large age gaps that virys would no longer be tormented by his siblings because surely by now everyone has moved out. but no, only his sisters have left the family home. one married and the other left during college and never came back. leaving virys with all three of his brothers as well as their mother. his oldest brother owns his own company and makes bank but has spent his whole life taking advantage of everything their father pays for in exchange for virys living under their roof. so he has opted to save every penny he makes and lives comfortably working from home. the second oldest stayed out of spite. “if virys gets to live luxuriously then so should i”. he’s been wildly unsuccessful at securing his own identity and has jumped careers several times already. he’s obsessed with virys in his own way, blaming the baby of the family for all his own failures. and then his third brother currently attends uc berkeley. he had originally moved out for the college experience, but he moved back home after virys had been subjected to the worst year of abuse yet. and that is how virys lives with four grown adults and most everything is paid for by his father.
»;█ ( FACT O11 ) tab while virys’ relationship with his birth mother would be classified as strained at best, his on and off relationship with father has been a toxic tortuous tease his entire life. virys has spent years fighting for his mother’s affection and then being disappointed every single time. while in contrast his father has openly made efforts to show his love, and it is instead virys who has trouble accepting it. living in near opposite ends of california has made it difficult to visit over the years, but his father has done his best whilst balancing his wife and rockstar career. unfortunately for him though, virys’ needs and expectations have always been higher than he is capable of meeting. as such virys’ feelings surrounding his father flip flop between striving to please him and then blaming him for everything wrong with his life. virys openly hates his father for all that’s happened to him, but his father has also been the one to treat him the best and they were close when he was a kid. the contradicting emotions leave virys in this constant state of “pick a door”. behind door number one is more emotional baggage to carry. but behind door number two is the chance of a nice memory that virys will cherish until eventually it gets torn to shreds the next time the first door opens instead. like the time he flew down to visit his parents, and his father ended up turning the return trip into a father son drive from la to the bay. they drove his vintage 1967 ford mustang fastback up from la together and his father then gifted it to him for his upcoming sixteenth birthday when they reached berkeley. then just a few days later one of his brothers assaulted him, likely jealous of virys’ better relationship with their father, and virys spent the evening of his birthday in urgent care. but rather than retaliating against his brother, virys passed the blame to his father for having returned him back to this living hell in the first place, thus shattering the good memories of their road trip and breaking their fragile relationship yet again.
»;█ ( FACT O12 ) tab virys is quite literally the epitome of the phrase “lonely in a crowded room”. he’s been surrounded by people his entire life, whether with his large extended family or due to his popularity throughout his years at school. but virys has struggled all his life to bond with anyone. at home he’s extremely isolated and unloved. and then at school, while he might not be everyone’s favorite, he’s still well known and socialized. but no one at school really knows him, neither does anyone at home. not truly anyways. virys’ closest connection to anyone would be the one he has with his pet, a female bearded dragon he named toothless. and while toothless might not be as affectionate or personable as a dog or cat might be, she has still served the same purpose of easing his loneliness and giving him something to live for. not that his entire life is held in the palm of her scaly foot, but having someone depending on him has given him a sense of importance in a world that had otherwise told him he’s worthless.
»;█ ( FACT O13 ) tab it should come as no surprise to hear that virys’ reputation includes violence, with a fine gray line between fact and fiction. the truth is that yes, virys has violent tendencies. and yes there is also most likely some truth behind any stories one might hear. but he is also a victim of exaggeration—that people blow things out of proportion and make assumptions when they don’t know all the details. a truth behind his violent nature though is that he is so numb to the physical pain that he’s unable to recognize his own body’s limitations. virys is so damaged at this point, emotionally, physically, or too intoxicated, that his pain tolerance is through the roof, and it actually puts him in a dangerous position. for instance being unable to distinguish the severity of an injury when he’s hurt. or not feeling any pain in his own hand when punching something…or someone…and so it’s too easy to just get tunnel vision and keep going, and going, and going….yes he’s beaten someone unconscious before. and yes his own hand was bruised for over a week afterwards.
»;█ ( FACT O14 ) tab unfortunately that numbness isn’t exclusive to physical pain. when his hurt and temper merge into one, virys reaches a point where he loses any sense of self worth or rational thinking—his self preservation drops below zero. it’s when he’s in this dangerous state of mind that it’s probably best to steer clear, but it’s also when he’s the biggest danger to himself. virys doesn’t exactly have a history of self harm, not intentionally at least. but when he reaches this point his brain short circuits and he’s unable to process cause and effect. he would boldly cross a busy intersection, walking as though expecting everyone to slam on the breaks for him. squeeze or smash whatever is in his hand without regard to the possibility that it could break and hurt him. and ever since getting his own car he has adopted a particularly dangerous habit of going alone for a drive. of going too fast and taking risks that could easily end his life if he so much as blinked at the wrong moment. he’ll drive until the adrenaline passes, until he comes down from the high and is able to feel things again.
»;█ ( FACT O15 ) tab his pain tolerance does come in handy though when it comes to his most obvious form of self expression: tattoos. he got his first tattoo at fourteen years old and it’s been an addiction of his ever since. most of them he got illegally, that is to say that there was no parental consent given nor were they done in a proper shop. the perks of having always hung out with an older crowd on account of his siblings and of having a famous musician for a father.
»;█ ( FACT O16 ) tab he’s not superstitious but virys is definitely a little bit-stitous. he reads into things and connects dots whether they’re related or not. his delusions turn nothings into somethings. it can be very difficult to reason with him if he’s mentally already accepted something as truth. virys would be the one to take it personally when something out of anyone’s control troubles him. to take it personally and then blame the other for it. had to cancel because you got a flat tire? in virys’ broken mind, if you really cared you would have found a way to get to him. or on the flip side, finding the tiniest of connections and viewing it as a sign that it was meant to be. like if you were to like the same music as him, it could easily lead virys into believing that you have an understanding of him, because clearly if you like the same music then you must feel similarly to him. virys really maxes out the phrase “point of view”. these delusions aren’t a constant. they come and go and there’s no telling when one will trigger, but they make it near impossible for him to maintain healthy relationships with other human beings when his mind sets these unrealistic expectations and creates false meanings behind others’ words and actions.
»;█ ( FACT O17 ) tab it’s pretty safe to say that virys generally doesn’t even try to make friends. not anymore at least. he was fairly social for most of his life, but the past couple years he has definitely closed himself off more and more. not that he’s been shunning the friends and connections he’s already made, but virys isn’t interested in making new ones. besides having to deal with his own demons, juggling his princely fame has taken a lot out of him. it was nice in the beginning, in fact virys used to love the attention he got at school in contrast to how hated he was at home. but the novelty has since worn off considerably. he’s found it exhausting having to balance the four sides that make up his life. as if it’s not hard enough being himself, having to also be the most hated, the most loved and the most unwanted all at once has taken a huge toll on him. and a large part of it all links back to his father being a king of rock. at school he is often put on a pedestal and fawned over. while at home he’s only tolerated because of the cash flow his existence comes with. and then there are his scattered interactions with the media who love to compare him to his father and turn his mistakes into headlines. luckily it doesn’t happen too often, living in berkeley has removed much of the pressure that comes with being born into music royalty. but he’s seen the articles written about him. the posts on social media. everything just further confirms that he wants nothing to do with people, and if he can’t change their wrong opinions of him then he’ll just give them what they want, he’ll be the black sheep they all say he is—the child born with horns.
»;█ ( FACT O18 ) tab it’s not uncommon for virys to go off on his own in attempt to get away from all the chaos that is his life. you’ll usually find him high. not just on weed, but literally as high up as he can get. his favorite spots to be alone are on rooftops, climbing the campanile, or to sit in his car along grizzly peak. there’s something calming and cathartic about being able to see such a large scope of the world—to escape from whatever claustrophobic bubble he’s been forced into and escape from all the rules, expectations and oppression that come with his life.

»;█ ( FACT O19 ) tab and in case you were wondering, yes the malfoy blonde hair is all natural. thank you pure valyrian bloodlines. he rarely cuts it, preferring it shaggy and borderline touching his shoulders. and so the times he has were either by force when he was younger, or during a mental breakdown. he has been convinced to trim it on occasion after it reaches his shoulders, most commonly at the hands of his older sister, but virys otherwise leaves it messy, blonde and long.​
