Republic City: Tu by ReverseAlchemist Republic City: Tu by ReverseAlchemist
Application for :iconrepubliccity:
Oh gosh what am I doing? I would love to be in this group so much, but I can be such a shy RPer. ;;

Ahh I made it in! Yessss ;u;
Imma go ahead and add some stuff into his profile, now that I've had a chance to RP with him and make some friends. eue

---------

Name: Tu, that's all he goes by.

Age: 22

Nationality: Republic City

Affinity: Earth

Occupation: Construction worker/ Repairman (small family business)

Skills:
Exterior Design: Tu's job has him fixing up shops and homes all the time, so he enjoys getting creative with his work and hopes to one day build his own houses, rather than just fix old ones.

Wrestling: Something he does for fun, and is good in the strength department, though he's been told he moves a little slowly.

Helping People: He loves that feeling he gets when he can put a smile on someone else's face. Even when he's not on the job, he likes to take some time to walk around the market and see if there's something he can do.

Personality
+ Cheerful | Hardworking | Very Friendly | Passionate

- Stubborn | Naive | Gluttonous | Can't take a hint

RP sample

Stepping back to admire his work, Tu grinned, wiping the sweat from his brow. He had really out done himself this time! This old man's clock shop would be the talk of the street for at least the rest of the week!
Turning to the shop owner, he noticed the man didn't look very happy. Had he done something wrong...? Missed a spot? He looked back at the storefront, pondering. Well, he had promised to be finished hours ago... But once he got started, he couldn't help himself! He loved adding small intricate designs and carvings to make something unique.
"Uhh, don't worry, all that extra stuff is free!" he beamed, giving the elderly man a rough pat on the back.
This seemed to be just what he wanted to hear! Tu was happily thanked and paid what was due.

With a little skip in his step, proud of a job well done, the earthbender made his way into the marketplace.
A sweet smell met with his nose and he was instantly drawn to a little booth selling pastries. About a dozen were bought; they would make a nice snack before dinner!
Just as he spun around to leave, something caught his eye. Ohhh, it was that girl he met yesterday! He had asked her out to lunch, but she had been busy... She had to go do that thing at the place, right away. Now, he didn't know where the place was, or what the thing she needed to do was either. But she didn't look busy today! Maybe he'd try again.
Sure Tu was a little dirty, and sweaty and --he gave his underarm a quick sniff-- pretty smelly... But girls like a working man, right?
Dusting himself off a bit, and slicking back his mohawk, he strode across the street towards her, whistling a rather loud catcall.
He'd have a dinner date tonight, for sure.

Additional Info
-Has basically taken over the family business because his father has fallen ill. Not deathly ill, he's just too weak to bend anymore.

-His mother died when he was young, so he doesn't know much about how to act around women, or understand much about their feelings.

-Despite this, Tu LOVES to flirt with girls --it's part of his construction worker's charm-- He tends to go for Fire Nation girls that are way out of his league, but he finds every girl beautiful in their own way, so really, no one is safe. He can come on a bit strong too... But he just doesn't get why he never gets a date!

-He would love to join a Pro Bending team, but he's too slow-footed. He usually only earthbends when fixing a wall or something, so he never really needs to be quick.

-He can't cook, but he loves eating.

-He's kind of a huge dope.

-Though he's very happy being an earthbender, when he dreams at night, he's soaring through the clouds, and thinks flying would be the coolest thing.

-He usually lies about how long he's been bending, saying he's been doing it as long as he can remember. He's embarrassed and doesn't like to talk about it.

Important or Notable Relationships:

Mellie: Mellie is Tu's first ever hired employee since he took over his father's construction business. He feels the need to look after her and they share a goofy big-brother/little-sister relationship. She is also a pro wing man, doing her best to help Tu get dates. (Mellie is ~Psyoren's )

Ruo-Chao: He is very much in love with this girl. (Ruo belongs to *Little-Imp-Rin )

Moki: Tu doesn't like this boy... Not one bit, he's up to something... He has to be. Taking Mellie out and just hanging around her in general. What does he think he's doing? Moki really brings out the Angry Papa Bear side of Tu. That's what he gets for getting close to Mellie. ( Moki belongs to ~firstfarewell )

Kadda: Kadda has become one of Tu's better guy friends, even though he finds the sand bender a little strange and eccentric at times, he appreciates his company. Tu thinks Kadda's sudden friendship with Moki very suspicious though... And isn't sure how he feels about having to hang out in a group with Moki involved twice as often as when it was just Mellie as the equalist's friend. ( Kadda is *Toresky's )

I wonder if anyone has tried to um "cure" Tu of his gluttony by stuffing him silly. You know how a parent might make PBJ at every meal for a kid who is a picky eater. You think it would work?

Hahahah, well I dunno about that. Tu's not so much a bottomless pit. He can eat a lot! ...But he knows when to stop. He's probably figured out his top-off limit by now. Doesn't wanna go around making himself sick, so he'll turn down food if he knows it'll be too much. vuv

What if Sheng took the occasional freelance repair job whenever the business needed hands for larger jobs.
And because of this, Tu and Sheng know eachother and are pretty good frends.

Awwww...! He looks like a loveable bear of a character!! > w < <333

He could wrestle with Ruo-Chao anytime... :eyes:

Lol! But really, my own little bottomless pit of a girl might get along with him. If nothing else, he'd easily win her over with promises of food. XD

Ohhh you know, he'd probably like that. She's smokin'

Pfft, well Tu's go-to date is asking someone out for dinner, so food's not an issue. XD

Well you succeeded in doing so wonderfully! He's precious. > w <

Ehee...Ohoho? Well see? Win-win. She'd like that 'cause she doesn't get the chance to wrestle much. Most boys underestimate her because she's a girl, and she'd be a bit too rough on other girls.

Well, he's got a good game plan, then. At least if other girls are like Ruo. The way to her heart is through her stomach. XD

ReverseAlchemist Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
Why thank you ;u; hahahh

He might feel pretty weird wrestling a girl at first, but I'm sure they'd get along well. ; D

His game plan hasn't worked for him so far, so Ruo is probably one of a kind. lol

It doesn't surprise me that Ruo's a one of a kind though...she's a bit...different than a lot of girls....she's a brute...e ~ e;;

I hope we can RP in the chatroom sometime! I'd love for them to get to know each other.

Hahahahh, well he's kind of an awkward flirter, he makes most girls feel uncomfortable. XD;

I think that's cool! Sure there are probably a few tomboys, but a real rough and tough girl in the group is gonna be good for it. : )

That would be awesome! I'm kinda shy when it comes to rp, but I'd love that too! > w <

Awww...awkward flirter. Well, good news--she's too dense to really feel uncomfortable if he flirts. I doubt she's had much experience with it, so she'll just take his words as joking or something. XD

You really think so? I'm so glad someone does. I've just thought she was so awkward...because she's more than just tomboyish...she's just like...an oblivious ox of a girl. ; u ;

ReverseAlchemist Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
Ohh me too, so shy. I actually sat silently in the chatroom for over an hour until someone I've been talk to about RPing came on. XD
We'll get more used to it though!

Pfft, yes he's also met a few girls that are just completely oblivious to his pick up lines. He's more or less used to not getting any dates. Poor guy. lol

Definitely. I think it's gonna be really fun to RP with her! Haha Tu will have a wrestling partner! A totally hot one! And he's probably always going to lose.

Oh my oh my, I think I'm in love with Tu already. Adorable character design--he reminds me of a big ol' panda bear. Or, er, platypus bear? Haha. If we both get in I would love to RP with you! I have a feeling Mellie and Tu would get along great as friends and coworkers, since Tu runs his own construction company and Mellie's looking for a job. xD Good luck getting in! Either way, I can't wait to see more drawings of Tu! :D

Oh my goodness, now that you've said it, he reminds me of a platypus bear too XDD
Good luck to us both! I hope we can get in, I'd love to see how Tu would handle trying to be the boss of a cute young girl, lol. He might feel awkward. But he'd hire her for sure.
Yes, I think, even if I don't get in, I would like to keep drawing Tu. Even if it's only once in a while. : )

Haha, I can see the scenes now. Tu being all goofy or trying to be suave and Mellie just being like, "lol, ok! 8D *goes back to making fancy statues out of dirt* What do you think, boss? *admires her own work*" She's kind of oblivious when it comes to relationships. xD
Do you have any idea when the group founders are going to let us know? I know the journal says they're going to give themselves a week to go through the applications, but I wasn't sure if they meant they'd let everyone know within the week or after it.
