OC Tag – Gemma and Rosie

Hello again! We’ve seen each other so often lately, haven’t we?

Anyway, today is another post for the OC (Original Character) Tag. In your comments to my latest tag you requested that I did the OC’s for Gemma, Rosie, Dellie, Grace and Maddie (I think I got everyone you asked for listed). And so I sorted them by the generation. This is generation 3, tomorrow we have generation two with Dellie and Grace and on Wednesday we have Maddie. Then on Thursday you are finally free from my excessive posting, but on Friday I have  a special bonus coming up. It will be about Heather. Gosh, you’re going to die from my bad writing right here!

Let’s start with our heiress, shall we?


1.jpg

  1. What is your name? Gemma Rosenthal.
  2. Do you know why you were named that? All I know is that me and my brothers were named according to the traditional in our family name scheme – all our names start with a G as does the name of our mother, Grace. I have no idea whether it is connected with a book like you might expect from a couple of bookworms.
  3. Single or taken? I’m a widow.
  4.  Stop being a Mary Sue! I think I remember my dad talking about it at some point when he tried to teach me Simlish. I sadly don’t remember what it means.
  5.  What’s your eye color? Gray. I got it after my grandmother Madelyn and both my son and granddaughter inherited it, too.
  6.  How about hair color? Light brown, which I and my granddaughter inherited from my mother. It’s gray now, too, though.
  7.  Have you any family members? I do, although both my parents are deceased. I have a lot of cousins on my uncle’s side of the family – I am not sure if he is alive – and two brothers.
  8.  Oh, how about pets? None.
  9.  That’s cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don’t like? I don’t like…sex.
  10. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do? I loved inventing until a horrible incident happened, which was connected to the inventing table. I haven’t invented a single thing since then.
  11.  Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before? I think I hurt my husband and son because I wasn’t there for them when they needed me, and it’s too late for me to fix the damage.
  12.  Ever… killed anyone before? Never.
  13.  What kind of animal are you? A human. When we were kids, Rosie told me I look like a squirrel.
  14. Name your worst weaknesses. I tend to be pretty self-centered and I made a big mistake in the past when I craved for fame so much I pushed away my family. Also, I am not good at showing affection.
  15.  Do you look up to anyone at all? I looked up to my dad when he was still alive, although I think he can still be an example to be followed and a role model.
  16.  Are you straight, gay or bisexual? None of these. If I were to be correct, I would call myself a heteroromantic asexual, which means I am romantically attracted to the opposite gender, but I don’t feel any sexual attraction to any gender.
  17.  Do you go to school? I don’t think I look young, do I? *touches her gray hair* I’m almost sixty.
  18. Ever want to marry and have kids one day? Been there, done that. I still feel guilty after the miscarriage I experienced  twenty two years ago.
  19.  Do you have fangirls/fanboys? Despite a few awards, I’ve never been a wide-known inventor, so I guess no.
  20. What are you most afraid of? My biggest fear is that my granddaughter would be raped. It’s the worst scenario I can think of right now. I am so relieved she came back from China unscathed.
  21.  What do you usually wear? Boring and simple things, which are also not revealing. Not only am I old, I developed a hatred towards my body even before turning forty.
  22.  What’s one food that tempts you? I barely eat.
  23.  Am I annoying you? No, although I need to check on Hannah in a moment.
  24. Well, it’s not over! I guess I can fit in some free time, then. *sighs*
  25.  What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)? I would say high class. It’s mostly because my dad was such a great writer.
  26. How many friends do you have? I don’t think I have any. I am not even liked in my own family.
  27. What are your thoughts on pie? I liked it when I was younger.
  28. Favorite drink? Coca-Cola light.
  29. What’s your favorite place? The waterfall in Aurora Skies. But I will not go there again.
  30.  Are you interested in anyone? I am not. I am not able to build a relationship with anyone after the trauma.
  31.  That was a stupid question. Don’t feel guilty. After all it *inhales deeply* happened twenty two years ago.
  32.  Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? Ocean. It brings back good memories.
  33. What’s your type? When I was still interested in boys, I liked everyone that stood out – T-Anthony for his popularity and self-confidence and Seth for his exotic looks.
  34.  Any fetishes? I don’t think so.
  35. Camping or indoors? Camping, because it reminds me of my trip to Egypt.

2.jpg

  1. What is your name? Roselyn Mitch…Rosenthal. Roselyn Rosenthal. 
  2. Do you know why you were named that? Because mine and my brothers’ names start with an R due to the family tradition. The suffix comes from my grandmother’s name, Madelyn. And the rest, I think, is mom’s doing because she liked the sound of it.
  3. Single or taken? *looks suggestively at her ring finger* Single.
  4.  Stop being a Mary Sue! Oh, that’s the thing with people being too perfect? Well, I thought I was perfect until I discovered my husband had been cheating on me all along.
  5.  What’s your eye color? Brown.
  6.  How about hair color? Blond, both came from my father. I am ashamed to say I am starting to have streaks of gray, though.
  7.  Have you any family members? Oh yes, I do. Anthony and I have two children – Alice and Alexander, not to mention my extended family, especially my cousin Gemma, who I greatly miss. I wish I knew more about possible grandchildren…Anthony cut off all my family relations.
  8.  Oh, how about pets? None, but I’ve always loved horses.
  9.  That’s cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don’t like? Unfashionable people. Ugh.
  10. Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do? I’ve been working as a personal trainer for many years now. Sport is my passion and my love.
  11.  Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before? Unfortunately, I deeply hurt my best friend and cousin, Emmie. I wish I could turn back time…
  12.  Ever… killed anyone before? No! 
  13.  What kind of animal are you? My mom called me a ladybug when I was a little girl – and hence my first earrings ever were ladybugs.
  14. Name your worst weaknesses. I can’t always express my intentions clearly and I tend to hurt people because of the fact that they don’t get my viewpoint.
  15.  Do you look up to anyone at all? I’ve always looked up to my uncle, because he’s so smart. I will be very sad if I find out he passed away….
  16.  Are you straight, gay or bisexual? Straight.
  17.  Do you go to school? No, but I sometimes miss it. I was a top student and I’ve always loved learning new things.
  18. Ever want to marry and have kids one day? My kids are all grown up and I used to be married until just recently…
  19.  Do you have fangirls/fanboys? Of course! But they are also the ones I train with and adore!
  20. What are you most afraid of? That Gemma will never forgive me.
  21.  What do you usually wear? Matching jackets and skirts which reach the knee height.
  22.  What’s one food that tempts you? I love myself a well-prepared salad!
  23.  Am I annoying you? Not at all.
  24. Well, it’s not over! Sure, what more do I need to answer?
  25.  What class are you (low class, middle class, high class)? I’d say high class. I’m a successful personal trainer.
  26. How many friends do you have? A few thousands that are my Instagram followers. But I cherish each and every one of them!
  27. What are your thoughts on pie? It’s unhealthy and don’t dare eat it in front of me!
  28. Favorite drink? Water only. Don’t spoil your health with alcohol, kids.
  29. What’s your favorite place? Anywhere I meet up for the group trainings. They’re just the best!
  30.  Are you interested in anyone? Not at the moment. Maybe I will eventually find myself a man who’s not a bastard like my ex-husband…I am just sad I wasted so many years on him.
  31.  That was a stupid question. No, no! I am very glad I pulled out the weeds off of my life!
  32.  Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean? Ocean is dreamy. And just because you’re nearly 60 doesn’t mean you can’t look good for an Instagram bikini selfie. It may just motivate some lady to finally work on herself!
  33. What’s your type? I like dark-haired men with brown eyes.
  34.  Any fetishes? Uhh…I would rather not talk about it with anyone except my partner.
  35. Camping or indoors? Indoors! I hate the outdoors.

  1. This was great! I loved the insight we got on those characters!
    Gemma… well, we know Gemma. She is a shell of the person she used to be! Which is totally expected… I did chuckle when she abruptly said she doesn’t like sex! Classic Gemma! And to fear that Hailey is gonna get raped… unfortunately, she’ll never overcome this trauma. Being left all alone doesn’t help either!
    Rosie on the other hand, hasn’t lost all hope. She didn’t have Gemma’s experience, but she was married to the guy! She sounded to me like a health freak, cheerful soccer mom! 🙂
    I wanted to ask, are the interviews supposed to be from different timelines? Because Gemma said she’s almost sixty and Rosie that she’s almost fifty… but they’re the same age, right?

    1. Thank you so much!
      Gemma is definitely broken. And I am not surprised after what happened. Actually Gemma has always been pretty straightforward and she hasn’t enjoyed sex long before the rape. Ah yes, she is so worried about Hailey now! And that’s partly why she didn’t send her out to the boarding school. She wouldn’t be able to protect her there.
      Rosie didn’t have such horrible experiences. And her job is what keeps her going. It’s why she didn’t break down after the divorce.
      Gosh, no! It’s all the same time as Rosie and Gemma meet. It’s silly me again, I’ve only just managed to edit that but you were early. Funny, Kate noticed today that I wrote “potatoes” instead of “tomatoes” in the summary for gen3. Oh, since I’ve only managed to correct it, you also may not have noticed the caption to the last photo.

      1. Oh, it’s ok! I thought I’d point it out in case it was indeed a mistake (and I was early)! 😀
        Those last pictures were really heartwarming! I’m so glad that Gemma will not be entirely alone until the end ❤

  2. Oh, Gemma’s answers are so sad 😦 I do really feel sorry for your characters – so few of them get through life unscathed. At least I gain some hope from seeing those two hug. Maybe there’s be a tiny little ray of sunshine… though, I kind of expect they’ll reconcile, it’ll be great, and then they’re struck by lightning or something. I dare not have hope, Jowita!!! 😛
    Anyway, I really liked both of these, even if Gemma’s made me a little sad. At least Rosie is still hopeful. Despite her past mistakes, she actually seems like she wants to change and life a regular life.

    1. I know, but I couldn’t have them any other way. I’m sorry for my characters, too, but I’m just too cruel. Hm…no, actually I generally do not do bad things to the characters after their generation ending (but Grace! oh, shut up, inner voice), so maybe it won’t be that bad after all. Unless I come up with some crazy ideas, but I’m too focused on Hailey atm.
      Oh yes, Rosie is definitely full of hope! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

  3. Gemma makes me so sad. 😦 I’m so glad I got more insight into Rosie. She used to irritate me so because of that nasty trick she pulled with the boyfriend (even though I’m glad now knowing what I know that he didn’t end up with our heir). Anyway, I feel like I can like her now. 🙂

    1. I know, she makes me sad, too 😦
      Oh yes, Rosie used to irritate us all…good old days. I am so glad you like her more now. And it definitely was a blessing in desguise that Gemma didn’t end up with Anthony. He would never respect her like Seth did….And you requested Rosie, so I’m glad you’re satisfied! 🙂

  4. Is it weird that reading this made me finally realize how old Gemma is and how much time has passed XD Even though we saw her taking care of Hailey with Dellie, it still hadn’t sunk in that this was the same girl who travelled, was married to Seth, and tinkered with inventions… Hearing her re-tell some of the rather sad things that happened made me also remember all of that. I can’t believe she mentioned Anthony when asked about her type, I would’ve thought she’d erase him from her brain forever after what he did.
    Rosie on the other hand, still looking great, haha! Glad to see she’s really reflected on what she did, she’s kind of a victim too because her family dynamic will never be the same all because of Tony. It has been so long, but those photos have me excited to see how their reunion shall be like… better late than never I guess!

    1. Oh yes, I get you. It was definitely hard to realize some things. Actually, if I played my main save, both the ladies should have been elders by now. Oh well! YrsY, she mentioned Anthony, he was her first love…
      Rosie looks splendids as though she was 20 years younger! They are both victims. Maybe they can help each other.

  5. Wow, I loved this.
    Gemma… answered the questions just like I thought that she would. I know that her rape destroyed her, and she is now a shell of a person. Then again, she wasn’t all there to begin with. I knew that she was never interested in sex, and I can see how she realizes that her inventing took over her life.
    Rosie, is Rosie. I never knew that she looked up to Dellie like that. I know that she regrets all that happened between Gemma & her, but up until now she hasn’t done much to make amends. Those last pictures give me hope that these two can finally make amends and help each other heal.

    1. I’m so glad you loved this. You seem to enjoy a lot of my posts, even if there are so many of them these days.
      Glad Gemma expected according to the view you had of her. I wrote her answers with a very clear knowledge how she would respond. To people who don’t know her it might have looked like she said she was asexual because of rape or bad first experience, but she just didn’t enjoy it overall.
      Yes, it’s still the Rosie we know. Oh, I bet even Dellie himself didn’t know how many people looked up to him! Plus her father Eddie might not have been the role model she needed. Rosie was very loved in the family and he’d always praised her intelligence, too. She had regrets and wanted to make amends, but her love for Anthony kept her where she was. Now it’s time!

      1. I enjoy so your posts, no matter how many of them there are (the more the merrier).
        You have such a clear idea of your character’s personalities and who they are or were. That is why I enjoy reading whatever you post.
        I remember that Gemma never liked sex. She had made that comment while Seth was still alive.
        It is never too late for Rosie and Gemma to reconcile. It should have been done a long time ago. I have a feeling that Rosie who the kid of man Anthony was this whole time. It was just easier for her to ignore it and even blame him for her broken relationship with Gemma then take responsibility for her own actions.

      2. Thank you so much! I have just posted a new OC tag with Dellie and Grace, hope you enjoy it, too.
        I am so glad you think I develop my characters’ personalities well.
        Oh, yes, she never liked it.
        Hm…who knows if your assumptions about Rosie are right. At least she is there for Gemma now.

  6. I’m pleased you wrote these bonuses. We can feel like we go back in time to the previous chapters, and we can remember about their characters. Sorry ladies but you can’t change the course of things. You can only regret and try to make it better. Speaking of mistakes, Gemma’s conversation with Rosie would be very interesting. In my opinion, Dellie was a great writer. I respect him so much. I glad I’m reading his bonus today (finally). I think Gemma should go to Aurora Skies one day. Maybe if she stood next to the waterfall, she would find peace for a while. I feel sorry for Rosie. She wasted so many years with someone like Anthony. She deserves better than her ex-husband. And last thing, Rosie sounded like she was our mother when she mentioned about the alcohol. Thank you for the writing this 😉

    1. I am very glad you enjoy reading these bonuses!
      It’s definitely nice to go back and reminisce how it was in the past.
      They obviously cannot change the course of things, but they can work for the better tomorrow.
      Ah, Dellie. Don’t we all miss him? Hope you enjoy his bonus.
      Rosie needs someone better!
      Of course, Rosie cares about us as though we were her kids 😉
