2011 UBF Application - Loz

WARNING. This is long! XD I tried to make it as easy to follow as possible.

For :iconpokemon-ubf:

Whoo, been working on this steadily for the last couple of days, and I’m really pleased with it. I feel like I’ve come a long way since I started drawing, even just since the start of Helios last year. AND I didn’t stay up until 3 the night before Round 1 starts! XD

Why YES, this IS a self-insert. :lol: ALL THE COOL KIDS ARE DOING IT. And all my friends will find it REALLY obvious. Worst part? I realised half of my Pokemon have names/nicknames shared with characters I love or at least have a vague fondness for in some way (Blaine, Cas, Merlin). Alas.


Name: Lauren (Loz) Shaw
Age: 20
Height: 5’4”
Weight: 48 kg
Hometown: Petalburg City
Region: Hoenn

Brief Bio: Loz was given her first Pokemon, Alexis (Eevee) at the age of 10, a gift from her parents. She never did a lot of battling, despite her friends’ urging, she preferred raising Pokemon and developing a different kind of friendship and loyalty. When she DID try battling, she kind of sucked at it – she’s not too bad at double battles, though, because she’s reasonably adept at reading her partner and working to support them and their decisions.

Recently, she heard about the 2010 UBF, and the upcoming 2011 tournament. She mentioned it to her friends and admitted to thinking about trying out, it looked kind of fun and all. Her friends basically laughed and said that she was pretty awful at battling, so probably wouldn’t get very far. So she applied to show them otherwise.

Personality: Loz comes across as reasonably friendly, social and polite, but she’s actually pretty shy and struggles to form conversation with new people. She can be stubborn, and also thinks she’s right all the time (until proven beyond all doubt otherwise). She’s loyal, and once she’s found a few friends she’ll stick to them, and support them as much as she can. Loz gets nervous about EVERYTHING, but she usually pulls through to be able to cope with that and move on – she also second guesses herself CONSTANTLY.

She’s crap at battling and prefers to raise her Pokemon in other ways. She’s more than willing to accept her friends’ help and advice with her Pokemon, though.

Did I mention she thinks she’s always right?

Likes: Friends, eating, really crap jokes, people who are polite.

Dislikes: Children, idiots (or people who come across as idiots), BIRD POKEMON (HATEHATEHATE), people who interrupt her, and RUDE people in general.

Fears: THE OCEAN. :noes:

;A; I haven't RP'd in a LOOOOONG time. I'd be definitely willing to try it again, though.

I do have MSN, but I so rarely use it. Buuuut, let me know if you want me to PM it to you, we could arrange times to be on at the same time (if time zones permit).
