Hailing from the town of Ventura, California, about two hours up the freeway from Hollywood, Milo had grown up in the city for nearly eighteen years, hopping from odd job to odd job, making just enough money to scrape by. A true believer in the peace-loving ideology, he tries to exude creativity in everything he does, be it surfing, smoking weed, sex, playing guitar, painting, what have you. Milo has a casual suaveness about him that whispers of a strong sexuality, but he tries not to be overtly provocative. It just kind of.. happens. Regardless, Milo doesn't really have much of a direction in his life at the present time. He is content working his small-time job as a handyman and spending his spare time on his hobbies and creating things and allowing others to provide him with some much needed <s>physical</s> inspiration. Often. <p>

At the tender age of eighteen, Milo and an old childhood friend of his packed their minimal belongings and their surfboards in aforementioned friend's station wagon and gave resounding "Fuck you!"s to their parents (who, realistically, did nothing to deserve such foul favoring -- they had actually been quite supportive yet hardly understanding of his "hippie" mind-frame, as they called it, an homage to their own generation). Then they took off down the highway for an hour and a half until they reached Santa Monica in Los Angeles County, and never looked back. <p>

Not long after arriving in Santa Monica, Milo's friend had fallen for a woman, Naomi, who convinced him to move to Guatemala to build houses and schools. Milo wished him well, only now he was left alone in the biggest city in his world, the biggest world. He had been left with a station wagon, and a nearly empty apartment, but what more did he need? There was a bed, and a couch, and two surfboards. By that time, he had two low-paying jobs, but they were enough to cover his rent and his food while he found a more reasonable living situation. <p>

Six years after all this happened, Milo received a call from his sister in Montana. She had told him that their grandmother was sick and she needed him to come to Bailey and help care for her. As self involved as Milo can be he's always there for family. He arrived in Montana a week later and not so surprisingly his sister had already bailed. So it was just him and his sickly grandmother, who passed away four months later due to lung cancer. Milo never bothered to head back to California. <p>

Six months down the line, and not much has changed for Milo. He still meditates. He still reminisces about his mother's mother teaching him dirty words in Portuguese and listening to her speak about Brazil. He still thinks fondly on his father attempting to wash those out with Italian words, from his side of the family, or how his mother would take him to the beach every Sunday when he was just an adolescent. But mostly, Milo lives day to day, now. Work doesn't exactly cause his time to fly quickly. His relationship with his family isn't golden, more bronzed, but he makes up for it in the breadth of his friendships, never able to walk around town without a friendly familiar "Hello" or more. Milo has absolutely no idea where he is going with his life, but he knows that this one-job-on-low-pay situation can't exactly last forever. But where is the time to actually think about that? Especially when he could be embracing the ocean, or another human body? <p>

Either way, Milo is a social butterfly. He's probably better at carrying on a conversation than he is at any of his hobbies, which is saying a lot. The only time he ever prefers to be alone is when he is working on some sort of creative project, but a lot of the time that's not even mandatory. Whether or not he has time alone is something that doesn't really faze the man, though he knows he certainly feels at his best when he is improving another person's day, or better yet, another person's outlook on life. Calm, cool, and collected, Milo is just a content and humble sort of person, his emotions leveling between four and seven on the happiness scale, never dipping too low or soaring too high. <p>

When it comes to <b>friends</b>, this is where most people will fit in, because he is quite kind to everyone and prefers to keep the peace whenever possible. These can be party friends, work friends, beach friends, or.. anything, really. <p>

I can't really think of any way he would have <b>enemies</b>, but I am open to your ideas! Maybe some people just really don't like that "hippie" mentality that he has, or how many bed mates he keeps, or can see through that overly friendly facade of his. I'm open to suggestions otherwise! <p>

As far as <b>lovers</b> are concerned, Milo will have many. He finds inspiration within people and thinks that all women are beautiful in some way or another. He doesn't much believe in monogamy (or, really, doesn't understand how it works or what the point is), but he does like dating around and making people feel good for any given length of time (albeit, all while making other people feel good, too, at the same time). He has a relationship-esque (if you call it that?) plot planned with Bailey's <b>Dallas Aldridge</b>, but this has little to do with the openness of his availability (at the moment!), whether that means in his bed, or in his mind.

<b>milo&dallas;;</b><br>
jskdfhmkfasdfjdksdjfsdjfhd he's wonderrrrrrrrrffffffffuuuulllllllllllll.
<p>so, dallas. bit of a crazy chick, also with zero direction in life and no desire to find one, really. having been moved from foster home to foster home her entire childhood, she's also very independent and surprisingly street smart. she has no job (which i'm going to fix as soon as i'm done typing this) and literally just wants to play for the rest of her life.
<p>okay, yes, they're both nice and friendly and outgoing, and because milo's smoking hot, i figure dallas will at least have a kid!crush on him right from the start. because she doesn't have much to occupy her time with, he could probably drag her off to parties and fun places, teach her something about /real/ freedom beyond just picking what kind of takeout she'll have today etc. while he's very calm and collected, she has all sorts of breakdowns and panic attacks and irrational fears, and the fact that he doesn't react to things the same way will weird her out, but only in a sense that she'll want to be strong like him. basically, as long as he showed her how to have fun, he'd be a saviour in her eyes!
<p>and with his sleeping around, she probably wouldn't notice unless it occurs when they're really involved somehow, and she'll get jealous without understanding. buuuuut, yeah, add/edit/trash!

<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">yay! so glad this didn't turn out to be a fail :P i absolutely love dallas! the fact that she's "phoebe" is just so amazing. milo will definitely be one to show her how his side of things and how he lives. he'd take her to parties and things of course but he'd also take her to places like his favorite place in bailey (wherever that is), and try get her out of town to get her on a surfboard. i could also see her being a muse to him for his painting. he'd use her cute innocence and childlike nature and transcend that onto paper. probably making a few portraits of her in the process. so, from friends they kind of turn into... whatever they're going to turn into. i'd be fine with finals but it's up to you :)</div></center>[/dohtml]

If he does smoke weed (and I asume that is just as illegal there as it is where I live) I bet he will not be popular by the town law enforcement... however if he is as nice as he seem then he might also avoid fines and the like and simply be told off and 'warned' whenever he is caught

<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">well, he keeps that stuff on the down-low most of the time. maybe she busted up a party he was at she could have let him off with a warning. now he could just be someone that she keeps an eye on. something like that anyways :)</div></center>[/dohtml]

JOY SHEPARD - April 24, 2012 05:45 PM (GMT)
yes, that could work

LINCOLN RHODES - April 25, 2012 06:27 AM (GMT)
    Okay so Milo and Lincoln absolutely need to be friends. They both had to leave California to care for a sick relative, and they both loved surfing when they were back in California and he's just really chill and Linc would feel really relaxed around him. When Linc isn't working or spending time with Kyla, he'd probably love to hang out with Milo (:

    Annnnnd he might meet Jenna eventually, since she's going to be friends with Dallas. Jenna's also got an artistic side too, so if the opportunity arose, they could find common ground over that.

    Andrew's also really, really laid back but he does like to be on the move a lot so I can't really see them as hanging-out-friends unless they're they kind of guys who hang out when they're at a bar and run into each other. But I can see them getting along too simply because it's so hard for either of them to really not get along with each other XD

HOLLY BELMONT - April 25, 2012 02:22 PM (GMT)
wrong account but....

LOTTIE&MILO

Lottie's twenty-one, played by Freya Mavor, a college Junior and she'd think Milo was hot as hell. Lottie's an only child and since her wealthy parents never have time for her, she can be abit of a brat. Deep down she's a goofy little sweetheart but years of neglect and self-esteem issues have left her with a cold, bitchy exterior when she feels threatened. She's having a seriously hard time at the moment after losing a close friend and rather than deal with it, she's finding comfort in other ways. The fact he smokes will make her love him and they can get high together and his cool, calm demeanor is just what she needs. On crazy nights out she'd definitely try and sleep with him (if he agrees is up to you ofcourse!). She's had eating disorders her entire life, her mom's an ex paegant queen and has been telling her she's not good enough from day one so anyone that makes her feel pretty or beautiful shall be rewarded with sex hahah. That's all I have for now but feel free to play around with it however you'd like gorgeous <3

<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">i seriously just about to pose in linc's shipper. these two need to be friends since they have so much in common. milo here loves road trips and the idea of travel and of course surfing, big cities and so on. they probably would have met at a party or something of the sorts. hell, they may have even been busted for misdemeanor together. i'm guessing these two wouldn't be the type to share feelings with each other, so maybe they like to take road trips out of town to go surfing and share stories about the golden city? friends for sure anyways.</div></center>[/dohtml]

[dohtml]<center><div style="width:300px; color:89E6DC; text-shadow:#000000 1px 1px 1px; font-size: 30px; font-family:georgia; letter-spacing:-3px;TEXT-ALIGN:JUSTIFY; -moz-transform:rotate(-5deg);-webkit-transform:rotate(-5deg); text-transformation:lowercase"><i>jenna&milo</i></div><BR><br>
<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">if they ever do cross paths i have a feeling that milo would take a liking to jenna. he would gain quite a bit of respect for her for helping out dallas and would overall be entertained by her awkwardness around him. he does have some morals though, so if he met her through dallas he wouldn't try and smooth talk her or anything like that. although it might come off that way sometimes. milo is just a very seductive person (as i like to think of him) and doesn't really put much thought in his words or how he says things. the artsy stuff sounds good too. depending on how much time they spent together she would most likely see him play guitar or paint or something so it could start from there.</div></center>[/dohtml]

[dohtml]<center><div style="width:300px; color:89E6DC; text-shadow:#000000 1px 1px 1px; font-size: 30px; font-family:georgia; letter-spacing:-3px;TEXT-ALIGN:JUSTIFY; -moz-transform:rotate(-5deg);-webkit-transform:rotate(-5deg); text-transformation:lowercase"><i>andrew&milo</i></div><BR><br>
<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">they could be those guys. milo isn't really one to hang around bars or anything so maybe if they see each other around town or something they'll stop and be like “how's it been?” and catch up a bit? so not exactly friends but acquaintances none the less? </div></center>[/dohtml]

[dohtml]<center><div style="width:300px; color:89E6DC; text-shadow:#000000 1px 1px 1px; font-size: 30px; font-family:georgia; letter-spacing:-3px;TEXT-ALIGN:JUSTIFY; -moz-transform:rotate(-5deg);-webkit-transform:rotate(-5deg); text-transformation:lowercase"><i>lottie&milo</i></div><BR><br>
<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">well milo would definitely be one to try and make her feel beautiful. he tends to find beauty in everyone and finds everyone unique in some form. on the other hand though milo hates shallowness and ugliness. he would find lottie quite irritating during times when she's more on the bitchy side because of this and find her hard to be around but he would remain calm and collected. he would accept her advances towards him and maybe it can turn into a “i'm free tonight. give me a call if you want to get a drink,” type of thing? sorry, my muse is dying on me. but yeah they could get high and share a few drinks if need be </div></center>[/dohtml]

JENNA DIETRICH - April 26, 2012 06:53 AM (GMT)
    LINC && MILO

    Ahhh perfect! These two are like two peas in a pod, and I can absolutely see them getting into trouble together. While they'd probably not be too chatty about feelings and stuff at first, I can also picture them having a moment sometime down the road where they've stopped on a road trip and maybe they've had a bit to drink or maybe they've smoked a bit or whatever, but they're just kind of relaxed and then they could talk a bit about serious stuff, but then the next day they go on like normal. Or something like that. :)

    JENNA && MILO

    She'll probably be awkward and flaily around him for a good while at first just because she isn't used to dealing with someone who is so naturally charismatic and stuff, but it'll be all in friendly good fun so if he'll be cool with her stumbling over her words a bit at first, then they should be getting along quite well once she gets over that! And she'll quietly be keeping an eye on what sorts of stuff goes on between Milo and Dallas like a good friend does. XD

    ANDREW && MILO

    Sounds good! The sort of guys who will chat when they bump into each other because they're familiar with one another, but they don't really hang out or anything beyond that. Perfect! :)

<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">wow...click, cliiick! omg, they're so beautiful. haha! so yes they definitely need to be friends because i doubt there's going to be anyone else on the board who has picspam with nate. these two could have met through the whole party scene and it just went from there. they could get high together and all that good stuff. milo would most likely be pretty oblivious to him being an addict also. so, yeah they could be pretty tight. party buds/bros sounds good. </div></center>[/dohtml]

[dohtml]<center><div style="width:300px; color:89E6DC; text-shadow:#000000 1px 1px 1px; font-size: 30px; font-family:georgia; letter-spacing:-3px;TEXT-ALIGN:JUSTIFY; -moz-transform:rotate(-5deg);-webkit-transform:rotate(-5deg); text-transformation:lowercase"><i>lincoln&milo</i></div><BR><br>
<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">i like that :) milo would be there to listen if linc ever wanted to say what was really on his mind and like you said, he would act like nothing happened the next time they saw each other. so maybe they could only talk about real serious stuff when they're either a little tipsy or just high as a kite. i'm definitely going to be coming to you for some threadage later on :)</div></center>[/dohtml]

<div style="width: 300px; text-align:center; font-size: 9px; letter-spacing: 0px; ine-height: .9em;">of course. hehe! he would be all smiles with jenna so they could definitely get along. maybe not really personal friends but whenever they come in contact they can be pretty buddy buddy.</div></center>[/dohtml]

hnnnnnnghhhhyes to them meeting while partying and being bros, that second picture is brilliant ahaha <3 marc would see milo as so chill, and be kind of jealous? that he's managed to let go of his family and all of that, while he's stuck. but it would probably never show, since they'd only really hang out and get high together etc., and that's not when you discuss serious things. xD
